“The press still thinks [global warming] is controversial. So they find the 1% of the scientists and put them up as if they’re 50% of the research results. You in the public would have no idea that this is basically a done deal and that we’re on to other problems, because the journalists are trying to give it a 50/50 story. It’s not a 50/50 story. It’s not. Period.” —

This is basically what the media does always.

Seriously, any influential or rich enough person can make an absurd claim and have “experts” bicker about it as though it has any validity.

Ugh.

It’s good for a little bickering at the start, rev up the hypothesis juices and figure out what your controls may be. All so you can have that nice theory when you are done.

Hehe, funny police listening to a mere mortal villager? I think not. Maybe the Mayor or just a fellow officer wanted his own goat.

This Hobby Lobby Bible Course Could Be Coming To A Public School Near You -

OH!  So THIS is why Hobby Lobby doesn’t want to chip in for BC in their employee healthcare plans, they need that money to develop lesson plans & pay off legislators & judges to force their religious beliefs on students!

Green said the purpose of the course is to “reintroduce this book to this nation. This nation is in danger because of its ignorance of what God has taught.”

This nation is in danger from ignorance, all right, Mr. Green, but it’s your ignorance that you want to enforce that’s the danger.

Will Companies be the new Rulers?

"In the sixteenth century, the rise of Lutheranism and Calvinism led to numerous wars and conflicts among the advocates of the new reformed churches and those who defended Catholicism. In 1555, the Peace of Augsburg recognized Lutheranism and established the principle of cuius regio, eius religio, literally, "whose rule, his the religion." In other words, the religion of a prince or political leader determined the religion that was to be practiced within a given realm. "

Will you be required to practice your employer’s religion in order to retain your Job?

"Hi, kids? I can’t pick you up after school, just hired a new HR guy and he convinced the owner to try out this new model religion. Something about having to pray at the same time everyday, brings community they say. Love ya, see ya soon!"

You Break the Law Every Day … Without Even Knowing It

Washington’s Blog
October 22, 2013

Wired notes:

James Duane, a professor at Regent Law School and former defense attorney, notes in his excellent lecture on why it is never a good idea to talk to the police:
Image: Do you break the law?

Estimates of the current size of the body of federal criminal law vary. It has been reported that the Congressional Research Service cannot even count the current number of federal crimes. These laws are scattered in over 50 titles of the United States Code, encompassing roughly 27,000 pages. Worse yet, the statutory code sections often incorporate, by reference, the provisions and sanctions of administrative regulations promulgated by various regulatory agencies under congressional authorization. Estimates of how many such regulations exist are even less well settled, but the ABA thinks there are ”nearly 10,000.”

If the federal government can’t even count how many laws there are, what chance does an individual have of being certain that they are not acting in violation of one of them?

As Supreme Court Justice Breyer elaborates:

The complexity of modern federal criminal law, codified in several thousand sections of the United States Code and the virtually infinite variety of factual circumstances that might trigger an investigation into a possible violation of the law, make it difficult for anyone to know, in advance, just when a particular set of statements might later appear (to a prosecutor) to be relevant to some such investigation.

For instance, did you know that it is a federal crime to be in possession of a lobster under a certain size? It doesn’t matter if you bought it at a grocery store, if someone else gave it to you, if it’s dead or alive, if you found it after it died of natural causes, or even if you killed it while acting in self defense. You can go to jail because of a lobster.

If the federal government had access to every email you’ve ever written and every phone call you’ve ever made, it’s almost certain that they could find something you’ve done which violates a provision in the 27,000 pages of federal statues or 10,000 administrative regulations. You probably do have something to hide, you just don’t know it yet.

And that’s just federal laws.

Comcast has argued that there’s nothing to worry about here because it doesn’t compete with Time Warner Cable in any ZIP code… When Comcast wanted to acquire NBCUniversal, Comcast’s CEO told this committee not to worry about it because there were still other robust distributors, and he specifically named Time Warner Cable, which would prevent Comcast from setting anti-competitive prices for Comcast content.

The point was that Comcast couldn’t get away with that sort of behavior because distributors including Time Warner Cable wouldn’t stand for it, and they could go to the FCC and complain about it, too. Later in the hearing, Comcast’s CEO also told us, ‘We are not getting any larger in cable distribution here.’ Well, if this deal goes through, Comcast will become larger in cable distribution, and if this deal goes through, Comcast never again will have to negotiate with Time Warner Cable when it comes to setting prices for NBC content. And NBC content, everyone should remember, is 20-some networks.

Comcast can’t have it both ways. It can’t say that the existence of competition among distributors including Time Warner Cable was a reason to approve the NBC deal in 2010 and then turn around a few years later and say that the absence of competition with Time Warner Cable is a reason to approve this deal.
