Immigration Destruction Under Obama
07-08-2009  •  FFF / Jacob Hornberger 
[E]veryone " employers, employees, and consumers " was benefitting, which is what a free market is all about. Then, along comes the federal government and accomplishes what it is best at: destruction, misery, and suffering.

Now, wasn’t that a wonderful result? Think about it: Here’s a company that ostensibly is privately owned. Its money supposedly belongs to it. It decides to use its own money to hire people who are willing to work there. Both the employer and the employees benefit from the exchange. We know this to be true because otherwise they wouldn’t have both entered into the deal. The company serves consumers by providing them with meat products that they’re willing to pay for.   

Like I say, destruction, misery, and suffering " it ought to be imprinted as a motto on business cards carried by federal officials.

All that Brad Campeau-Laurion wanted was to use the bathroom.

  The beer he had consumed an hour earlier had completed its tour of his digestive tract and was impatient to leave. So when the Seventh Inning Stretch arrived, and the crowd at Yankee Stadium arose to sing “God Bless America,” Campbeau-Laurion quietly excused himself to attend to this biological imperative.

  He wound up being assaulted by two off-duty New York police officers and dragged from the stadium " in humiliating fashion, in full view of tens of thousands of people " for desecrating a recently minted “patriotic” tradition.

Solar Powered Blimp ready for launch

Perhaps propelled by the recent dawn of solar powered airplanes, this stunning solar powered blimp is poised to take flight by harnessing sunlight for fuel. Dubbed Nephelios, the solar-powered helium blimp was designed and built by high school engineering students in France. The history making blimp will begin test flights in the next 2 weeks, and by summer’s end the designers hope to fly Nephelios across the English Channel, “just to show that it’s possible.” Nephelios will be the first manned solar airship in existence, and its inaugural flight will prove that CO2-free air travel is now a reality.  Read Full Story

Where's Pentagon 'terrorism suspect'? Talking to Karzai
07-08-2009  •  McClatchy News 
Haji Sahib Rohullah Wakil spends his days going from one high-level official meeting to another with the swagger of a tribal elder, advocating for the needs of Kunar province, his home region.

Each encounter " with President Hamid Karzai, with Karzai's chief of staff or with one of Afghanistan's other presidential candidates " begins the same: They thank him for his honorable service to the people of Kunar.

Despite those endorsements, the Pentagon says that Wakil is among 74 former Guantanamo Bay detainees who've returned to or are suspected of returning to terrorism after their release from the island prison camp.

A pro-marijuana group is launching another television bid to legalize pot in California " this time with the pitch that legalizing and taxing the drug could help solve the state's massive budget deficit.

Therefore, we can make a hesitant conjecture. These critters may still be extant and functioning in the major global swamps. Locating them will also be a daunting challenge and will take a major effort. Occasional eyewitness reports have been futile to date since these animal are simply too large for capture or even killing when encountered. We are simply never heavily enough armed in the first place and having handling equipment to hand is also unlikely. So far, almost no one has been prepared to believe these reports.  Read Full Story
