If the United States Declared Solar and Wind Energy as Rogue Terrorists, I bet we'd find enough to supply all of our energy needs.

Is it a good thing when the headline of an article completely explains the content of the article that is to be written?

Imagine thousands of U.S. Military men with telescopic mounts on top of surveyor gear combing the U.S. countryside looking for enemy wind and solar energy terrorist cells.

Does anyone doubt that our military could find enough of these wind and solar energy terrorist cells within the United States to provide energy for the United States?
Should returning soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan be re-deployed in the U.S. to hunt down wind and solar energy terrorist cells, capture them, and convert them to energy?
Just a thought.

Federal Hobbs Act Violations Challenged by Several Defendants who were Candidates Only.

"Edit Update: Feb. 18, 2011) Judges throw out Hobbs Act Violation. How is this fair to the other politicians running for office? If a politician is anyone who runs for office, then it should not matter whether they actually win or not, no?

The Federal Hobbs Act case being tried by federal appeals judges in Philadelphia apparently has never occurred before. The defendants are trying to get the Federal Hobbs charges removed because they were not politicians at the time of the apparently illegal deeds they are alleged to have done. The Federal Hobbs Act violation that is being considered is the accepting of funds by a politician in exchange for further favors under the color of right.

This case is really a huge deal on many levels. What I did not understand were a couple of the judges questions and analogies, and more importantly, what wasn't asked. One judge seemed to be implying that it would be wrong to charge someone for burning their own house down just because the house was in what could be called "escrow". I don't really get that analogy. There were other prospective home buyers interested in that home and the act of burning the house down ruined the chances for others to buy the home.

What concerns me are the other, honest candidates that don't promise favors in exchange for money NOW, TO HELP WIN THE RACE. Violating the Federal Hobbs act under the color of right at the expense of other political candidates should therefore be on the table, no?

On the other hand, the government could easily meddle in ANY RACE since every candidate receives donations and anyone could then accuse them of accepting the money in exchange for favors after the candidate is elected. Although, since the government accusing political candidates of Hobbs Act violations apparently has not come up before, so maybe it would not be an issue.

The other issue that is not being brought up is, once a candidate gets signatures to become eligible to run for a political position, they are in fact a politician running for office. You don't become a politician by running and winning office, you become a politician once you convince enough people to sign your petition to run for office.

Otherwise, somebody who runs for office and loses could never call themselves a politician.

Dance of the Digital Dominators, aka Wall Street can't create anything, Wall Street just combines things and takes money off the top.

The four headed monster comprised of the Internet, the advance of digital media technology, satellites, and Wall Street, at first helped caused an economic expansion. Now, this four headed monster demands to be fed, and main street is the happy meal it seeks out.

Wall Street no longer creates anything, they simply recombine something that already exists, and they appear to take the biggest cut for themselves. That is the essence of the four headed monster that is destroying the U.S. economy and soon the world's entire economy.

This four headed wall street monster can multiply, securitize, then re-multiply ANYTHING, many times replicating the same product in different markets than disappearing with the upfront bonuses and fees that have already been collected, long gone before the house of cards collapses.

Wanna place a bet on which state will have the most foreclosures, wall street will offer some type of securitized fund. Want to securitize any future failure? No problem, Wall Street will securitize it and profit handsomely on the front end.

and there in lies the problem.

If Wall Street put together deals that had a reasonable profit cap on what they could earn, and if the money was paid out over time instead of upfront, maybe, just maybe, we could learn to live with the four headed Wall Street Monster.

Instead, the upfront, over the top profits that Wall Street creates for itself simply motivates Wall Street to reinvest using the same profit paradigm as before, a new financial product that once again creates nothing but a temporary increase in value that ends up in wall streets pockets.

I don't know if there is a solution, but until we de-emphasize wall street's role in growing real jobs for main street, we are whats for dinner.

The most Hurtful Anti American Words I ever heard were meant as a back handed compliment by a Canadian Tourist at a 2011 New Years Eve Celebration.

The most hurtful anti american words I ever heard spoken were actually meant as a backhanded compliment by a Canadian Tourist enjoying herself at a 2011 New Years Eve Celebration.

I was at home for news year eve when I heard the comment made on television. I don't even recall what channel I was watching, it might have been Fox, it might have been KCBS, it might have been KABC, when my jaw dropped as the most hideous thing ever said about america was said in passing by a canadian tourist actually enjoying herself at a Pasadena Rose Bowl Pre-Parade New Years Eve Party.

When I heard the Canadian say what she did, I actually felt tears well up, even when I think about it now, it can still bring me to tears, and not in a proud way. Our Canadian friend said what she did in an off the cuff way to a reporter and I think that is what makes it so hurtful. Our Canadian friend didn't really pause in thought, she just said it... "If there's one thing americans still know how to do, it's put on a show."

The way our canadian friend said "IF there's ONE THING americans still know how to do, it's put on a show" that made the comment so hurtful. This comment is painful because I think she's right. If there is even one thing we still know how to do, it's how to put on a "show".

I will admit I am not sure if the word "still" was used. I think it was, but either way, the undertone of the comment is lethal. We are becoming the world's court jesters (but with knives?), and PROUD OF IT.

Even the word "show" reminds me of Barack Obama picking up a prematurely won Nobel Peace Prize, then flying to Europe with Oprah Winfrey in tow so he could try and win the Winter Olympics moreso for Chicago, than America, so he could be center stage as he finished his 8 years in office. The show was mapped out even before Barack Obama had won the presidency.

In the past I have referred to Barack Obama as having a "poker face" when it comes to his complete botching of foreclosure relief programs such as HAMP and EHLP. Barack Obama should be facing impeachment charges over the save your home foreclosure deception he so proudly backed in March of 2009.

It was that same Alfred E. Neuman poker face that belittled the fact that a significant portion of Barack Obama's record campaign donations in the 2008 democratic presidential nomination race came from anonymous, untraceable, pre-paid credit cards.

Maybe it is appropriate that the description of america "If there's one thing that americans still know how to do, it's put on a show", were said right in the middle of our poker faced, untraceable president's first term in office.
