The environmental agenda has been infected by extremism—it’s become an economic suicide pact. And we’re here to challenge it. On Earth Day, visit http://www.freemarketamerica.org.
We all know why the Watermelons (Green outside, red inside) want America to fail. A failed state is ripe for totalitarian takeover. Just ask the Germans, the Russians, the Chinese, the Cubans, the Venezuelans, the Vietnamese, the Rhodesians (if you can find any), soon the Argentinians. and on and on and on
And to remind you of how long the Watermelon totalitarians and their media accomplices have been working on this:
From Newsweak (sic) April, 28, 1975
By using billions of dollars in federal funding to strong arm states to adopt national standards of dubious quality, the Obama administration has raised federal intrusion into education to new heights, transferring control over the nation’s classrooms to anonymous federal bureaucrats, special interest lobbies, and insider experts, ultimately rendering parents and taxpayers powerless.
The Marching Morons as federal policy for it’s citizenry.
BTW yhe linked article’s author used “median” as a synonym for average instead of midpoint, proving the point. “Mean” is the synonym for average.
This video, which features an interview with legendary author Neil Gaiman, is a lighthearted look at how the University of Wisconsin–Stout backed down from its censorship of Professor James Miller’s posters, one featuring a quote from the science fiction show Firefly, and the other condemning fascism. Stout stood by its actions until FIRE’s advocacy campaign on Miller’s behalf inspired Gaiman, along with Firefly actors Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin, to take to Twitter to encourage their millions of followers to contact the university with their support of free speech.
I have to wonder if the prof had hung a poster with Abu Huraira’s quote of the Prophet as saying,”…a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him…” if the brain dead campus cop would have considered that a threat or conceded it to be “protected speech”?
Founded in 2009 by Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis, Singularity University is a start-up university in Silicon Valley. SU’s mission is “…to assemble, educate and inspire a cadre of leaders who strive to understand and facilitate the development of exponentially advancing technologies to address humanity’s challenges.”
Singularity University is not your father’s college.
In August of 2011, Reason.tv’s Paul Feine and Alex Manning traveled to Singularity University to get to know a few of the 80 students who participated in SU’s 10-week interdisciplinary summer graduate program. We encountered a fascinating group of young entrepreneurs who have big plans to use technology to help the world’s poor…and make a profit!

I have been wondering about the seemingly incoherent policies propagating out of the District of Corruption and trying to develop a model of thinking and goals that would be consistent with the insanity. I have had to abandon any thought of citizen or taxpayer well-being or maintenance of American exceptionalism in order to come up with a somewhat consistent model.
The District of Corruption has become, in essence, a wholesale club sized Faculty Lounge that has developed a plan to run the country as a university focused on the welfare of the faculty over the students or the payers of the tuition.
First is the plan to get out of debt seems to be Quantitative Easing III, IV, V, VI, and however many more it takes to make all those outstanding Treasury Bills (and their interest obligations) worthless. The fact that it will impoverish the American citizenry is as Microsoft used to say, “not a bug, but a feature.” It will wipe out the rich as well as the successful and the thrifty, thus putting all citizens’ welfare in the hands of those best qualified to judge a persons worth (no not the free market, that is seen as cruel, unfair and idiotic to the insufficiently rewarded, it must be those with the wisdom of Solomon, the Tenured).
This destruction of the dollar not only gets us out of debt while punishing those so rude to have been more successful in the free market than the new masters, but also sets the stage for the resurgence of America as a “properly structured society.” In other words the serfs need to acknowledge their proper place in the presence of their accredited and credentialed betters.
That brings us to the master stroke. In claiming that the oil companies get a “tax incentive” by writing off business expenses such as depreciation, exploration, and the cost of failed production attempts (things that legitimate costs of doing business in every other business, just bigger numbers in the oil business), the stage is set for the DOE to revoke all leases and nationalize the oil fields. After the dollar has been destroyed and whether the new currency that purchases oil is a “basket of currencies” or the PetroBuck® the wealth in the oil fields of what was previously called the United States will be more than enough to support the proletariat in their virtual slavery while the masters party like Nero. Issuing decrees as the Gods from Olympus (you have to “properly guide” those serfs, dontcha know?).
“The frustrating part about writing on this stuff is that people don’t seem to have any middle setting between ‘everything is fine’ and ‘run in circles scream and shout’. So saying ‘no, it’s not Chernobyl’ is interpreted as ‘it’s nothing.’ So let’s go ahead and make this clear: no, it’s still not Chernobyl. But no, it’s not nothing.”
Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green reveal the “dangerous” levels of radiation that people are exposed to every single day. They also discuss the “harmful” levels of media hysteria.
