  1. Rufus: Nearly 39 percent of the Philippines' energy requirements are derived from renewable sources such as hydropower, geothermal, solar, wind and biomass...

    And yet they still pay the equivalent of $4.50 a gallon at the pump, and not all of that premium is due to the requirement of having an attendant pump your gas (for fuller employment ala Oregon).

    Can't drill off Calfornia, too damn pretty there

    Can't drill out in the Gulf, too dangerous, let the Chinese and Cubans have it

    Can't bring that pipeline down from Canada (and by the way Ruf, I asked my engineer about that piping, his considered opinion was it would pose zero risk to underground water, our piping is so good)

    Can't do a damn thing

  27. Yeah, but you've gotta get your facts straight. The only off-limits place in Alaska is Anwar, and that doesn't have anything to do with "seals."

    Nobody wants to drill off Martha's Vineyard. There's no oil, there (I don't know where you came up with that one.)

    It's the State of California that got tired of oil spills off Malibu Beach. Obama, and the Feds have nothing to do with it.

    There are set to be more rigs drilling Feb 1st in the Gulf than there were before BP bathed the coast in oil.

    Yeah, tell the folks in Yellowstone how good that piping is. We had, I believe, 50 something leaks/spills from pipelines last year, alone.

    You just babble the "magical/Republican line with no idea what you're talking about, and post links to "The American Thinker," as if they were a real source of information for anything.

  62. Self-proclaimed alternative energy proponent Sen. Ted Kennedy has strongly opposed an environmentally friendly "wind farm” off the coast of Massachusetts – and now it appears Kennedy will have his way.

    A proposal before Congress would limit the construction of wind turbines and most likely doom plans for the Cape Wind Project, the nation’s first offshore wind farm. [Editor’s Note: Read the book that first exposed Sen. Kennedy’s hypocrisy

    "This is a dire moment for us,” declared Mark Rodgers, a Cape Wind Associates spokesman, who said the proposal "would be totally fatal” for the project.

    The Cape Wind Project would erect 130 windmills in Nantucket Sound and could provide three-fourths of the power needed by Cape Cod and nearby islands, which is now largely supplied by coal-fired plants.

    But Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, has called for a ban on all wind turbines within 1.5 nautical miles of shipping and ferry lanes, The Washington Post reports.

    Young cited research in Britain suggesting that the wind turbines’ huge blades could interfere with shipboard radar, and he singled out the Cape Wind site – close to sea routes between the Cape and the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard – as especially unsafe.

    Cape Wind officials call Young’s concerns a "pretext” for killing the project, according to the Post, and point out that in 2003 a contractor for the Army Corps of Engineers stated that the wind farm "is not expected to create negative impacts to navigational safety.”

    is a war of religion and faith"

    Last week, the principal Palestinian Authority religious leader, the Mufti Muhammad Hussein, presented the killing of Jews by Muslims as a religious Islamic goal. At an event celebrating the 47th anniversary of the founding of Fatah, he cited the Hadith (Islamic tradition attributed to Muhammad) saying that the Hour of Resurrection will not come until Muslims fight the Jews and kill them:

    "The Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews.
    The Jew will hide behind stones or trees.
    Then the stones or trees will call:
    'Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.'"

  93. Israel's Tel Aviv crowned best city for gays and lesbians
    Israel's second-biggest city has been declared the best for gay and lesbian people in a new poll.

    Sunday, 15 January 2012

    Israel's second-biggest city has been declared the best for gay and lesbian people in a new poll.

    Tel Aviv - which has a thriving population of over 400,000 – was given the title in an online poll sponsored by American Airlines and travel site Gaycities.com.

    Tel Aviv garnered 43 percent of the votes, followed by New York City with 14 percent and Toronto with 7 percent.
    "Winning this competition constitutes an additional strengthening of the fact that Tel Aviv-Jaffa is a city that respects all people and allows everyone to live according to his/her own principles," Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
    "Ours is a city in which everyone can be proud of who they are."

    In a further statement, the President of the Tel Aviv Assfuckers (a local competitive ass fucking league) requested all Arabs that wanted to play in the games please shave their assholes prior to leaving the Palestinians controlled territories. (this request also applies to Palestinian men that wished to be ass fucked)

  114. the understatement of the day:

    ...Despite the close relationship between the U.S. and Israel, U.S. officials have consistently puzzled over Israeli intentions. "It's hard to know what's bluster and what's not with the Israelis," said a former U.S. official.

    Inside the Israeli security establishment, a sort of good cop, bad cop routine, in which Israeli officials rattle sabers amid a U.S. scramble to restrain them, has assumed its own name: "Hold Me Back."

    Some American intelligence officials complain that Israel represents a blind spot in U.S. intelligence, which devotes little resources to Israel. Some officials have long argued that, given the potential for Israel to drag the U.S. into potentially explosive situations, the U.S. should devote more resources to divining Israel's true intentions.

    I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

    Your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.

    I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your highways shall be desolate.

    I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

    Ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.

    I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.

    I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.

    I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.

    I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

  128. In a recent email, I read about a woman named Pam, who knows the pain of considering abortion. More than 24 years ago, she and her husband Bob were serving as missionaries to the Philippines and praying for a fifth child. Pam contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in contaminated food or drink. She went into a coma and was treated with strong antibiotics before they discovered she was pregnant. Doctors urged her to abort the baby for her own safety and told her that the medicines had caused irreversible damage to her baby. She refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted. Pam said the doctors didn't think of it as a life, they thought of it as a mass of fetal tissue.


    While pregnant, Pam nearly lost their baby four times but refused to consider abortion. She recalled making a pledge to God with her husband: If you will give us a son, we’ll name him Timothy and we’ll make him a preacher. Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and eventually gave birth to a healthy baby boy August 14, 1987. Pam’s youngest son is indeed a preacher. He preaches in prisons, makes hospital visits, and serves with his father’s ministry in the Philippines. He also plays football. Pam’s son is Tim Tebow.


    The University of Florida’s star quarterback became the first sophomore in history to win college football’s highest award, the Heisman Trophy. His current role as quarterback of the Denver Broncos has provided an incredible platform for Christian witness. As a result, he is being called The Mile-High Messiah.


    Tim’s notoriety and the family’s inspiring story have given Pam numerous opportunities to speak on behalf of women’s centers across the country. Pam Tebow believes that every little baby you save matters. I pray her tribe will increase! May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always!

    10. But Jesus saw beneath the surface of the sea; he saw a multitude of fish. He said to Peter,
    11. Cast out your net upon the right side of the boat.
    12. And Peter did as Jesus said, and, lo, the net was filled; it scarce was strong enough to hold the multitude of fish.
    13. And Peter called to John and James, who were near by, for help; and when the net was hauled to boat, both boats were well nigh filled with fish...



    Man that was one hell of a fly. Evidently, with multiple barbs. Sure beats the 'Royal Coachman' all to hell. One of the lost mysteries of antiquity.

    As for the phrase 'salt of the earth' once again you play fast and loose with the general meanings of the phrase.

    Meaning

    Those of great worth and reliability.

    Origin

    The phrase 'the salt of the earth' derives from the Bible, Matthew 5:13 (King James Version):


    Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men...



    The phrase was used in the "Sermon on the Mount' and was directed to the general audience. Even if we assume it was directed solely to the disciples, we don't know all their occupations, some were fishermen, one a tax collector, some we don't know, surely we don't know if if any were farmers.

  141. In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christ's disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen and that John, the favorite, was a dry-fly fisherman.

Although Paul was three years younger than I was, he was already far ahead of me in anything relating to fishing and it was he who first found a copy of The Compleat Angler and reported back to me, "The bastard doesn't even know how to spell 'complete.' Besides, he has songs to sing to dairymaids." I borrowed his copy, and reported back to him, "Some of those songs are pretty good." He said, "Whoever saw a dairymaid on the Big Blackfoot River?

    On January 16, 1893, United States diplomatic and military personnel conspired with a small group of individuals to overthrow the constitutional government of the Hawaiian Kingdom and prepared to provide for annexation of the Hawaiian Islands to the United States of America, under a treaty of annexation submitted to the United States Senate, on February 15, 1893. Newly elected U.S. President Grover Cleveland, having received notice that the cause of the so-called revolution derived from illegal intervention by U.S. diplomatic and military personnel, withdrew the treaty of annexation and appointed James H. Blount, as Special Commissioner, to investigate the terms of the so-called revolution and to report his findings.

  147. What is Occupation

    Turkish Invasion and Cyprus Occupation

    On 15 July 1974 the ruling military junta of Greece staged a coup to overthrow the democratically elected Government of Cyprus.

    On 20 July Turkey, using the coup as a pretext, invaded Cyprus, purportedly to restore constitutional order. Instead, it seized 35% of the territory of Cyprus in the north, an act universally condemned as a gross infringement of international law and the UN Charter. Turkey, only 75 km away, had repeatedly claimed, for decades before the invasion and frequently afterwards, that Cyprus was of vital strategic importance to it. Ankara has defied a host of UN resolutions demanding the withdrawal of its occupation troops from the island.

    On 1 November 1974, the UN General Assembly unanimously adopted Resolution 3212, the first of many resolutions calling for respect for the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and non-alignment of the Republic of Cyprus and for the speedy withdrawal of all foreign troops.

Demanded that the crucifix be covered in the room in which he gave a speech at Georgetown University. Bowed to Saudi King. Initiated actions in the Middle East which helped the "Arab Spring" become a takeover by The Muslim Brotherhood. Pressures the Israelis to surrender more land for peace while Hamas rockets Israel daily. Refused to use any of three methods to destroy a drone which landed intact in Iran; the drone gives Iran and its allies a thirty year gain in stealth technology and electronics. Withdrew American troops from Iraq which will allow Iran to increase its terror and influence in Iraq. Negotiates with the Taliban and sets a withdrawal date for American troops from Afghanistan. Increased our national debt to 100% of GDP $15T+. Decreased the value of the US dollar in terms of gold. Appointed Marxists as czars. Uses the EPA to achieve caps on utility plant emissions when Congress refused to pass cap and trade legislation. Blocked much offshore drilling. Blocked the oil pipeline from Canada to Texas refineries. Issues regulations that reduce domestic oil and coal development. Used most of the stimulus money for Democratic constituencies instead of for "shovel ready" projects that he admitted in 2011 were not shovel ready. Practices crony capitalism for Wall Street banks and Democratic fund raisers in the green energy sector such as Solyndra. Used Fast & Furious with the intent of creating justification for hobbling Americans' right to bear arms. Prosecutes states that pass laws to block illegal immigration. Forces the passage of Obamacare in defiance of the will of the people and Congressional legislative rules. Obtained Congressional approval to arrest and detain American citizens on U.S. soil indefinitely without trial if the President decides a citizen was supportive in some way of terrorist organizations. The DHS deems as potential terrorists, among many others, returning veterans and anyone who stockpiles more that seven days of food. This means that Obama can suspend your RIGHT to habeas corpus.

  164. Ex-Im's 2008 annual report tells other interesting stories about Obama's industrial policy. Solyndra, which went bankrupt in August after benefiting from a $500 million loan guarantee from the Energy Department, pocketed an Ex-Im subsidy last year too: As Solyndra stumbled in February 2011, Ex-Im leant a hand by approving a $10 million loan guarantee to help Solyndra sell solar modules to Belgium.

    (Solyndra delivered the product to Belgium, and so the $10 million taxpayer exposure is not affected by the company's bankruptcy.)

    Create taxpayer-subsidized jobs in a politically important state, win the loyalty of a huge and vulnerable company, and try to bail out a failing green-energy poster child -- Obama couldn't do any of these things if he took a laissez-faire approach. That's why, for politicians, agencies like Ex-Im are so crucial.

Instead of the usual suffering Christ with head bowed and body bloodied (a terrible image -Bob), the figure on the cross in Campbell's room was fully clothed, with head erect, eyes open, and arms outstreched in what seemed an almost joyous embrace of the divine. This was the triumphant Christ of whom Campbell had often written as a symbol of the zeal of eternity for incarnation in time, which involves the breaking up of the one into the many and the acceptance of the sufferings in a confident and joyful manner.

    According to Peay, Campbell "experienced profoundly the depths of the Christian symbol" during what were his last weeks of his life. She quotes his wife Jean Erdman as saying, "He was thrilled to see that, because for him this was the mystical meaning of Christ that reflected the state of at-one-ment with the Father." In the hospital room, according to his wife, "he experienced emotionally what he had before understood intellectually. Seeing this image in a Catholic hospital room helped release him from the conflict that he had had with his childhood religion."

    ......
    Across from the Carnegie Library here at the Episcopal Church there used to be a great stained glass of Christ, fully clothed, radiant, with his hands and arms in the buddhist fear dispelling, boon bestowing gesture, but it is gone now, dang it.

    Icons mean a lot.

    If you're a hack lawyer in the public sector (is there any other kind?), war on anything is good war.

    I was married to a lawyer, I know lots of lawyers. When drunk, they tend to agree that lawyers rule the earth.
