Carl Icahn: “Those Lowly Workers Don’t Need a F$*&!#*$! Severance Package”

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

“That’s the trouble with America today. There’s too much of that pansy socialism. Employers have turned into a bunch of bleeding-heart pussies. They think they owe something to their employees?!?!?!?!? Workers are a dime a dozen; they’re chattel. Their bosses don’t owe them jack shit! When I take over your ...

UK’s Lotus is Rocking my World

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

This is one sexy damn car, kids. Ultimately, the sports car could be 'carbon-neutral', says Lotus Engineering. Its emissions would be balanced by recovering waste carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to make methanol. Within 15-20 years, Lotus hopes to see large-scale methanol production 'recycling' the carbon dioxide produced by factories. Geraint Castleton-White, Head ...

McCain’s Straight Talk Express Takes Every Fork In The Road?

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

It looks like it won't take a swiftboating to highlight John McCain's propensity to parse his words for political expediency. As a matter of fact, I suspect that the catch phrase for the 2008 presidential election may turn out to be YouTubing...and there's little doubt the following video may be ...

Gas Prices, Gas Bags, & The Gas Chamber

Monday, May 19th, 2008

No doubt the current energy crunch is a complex equation. A number of factors likely contribute to the rising price of gasoline in the United States. As I understand it, they include the rapidly expanding consumer demand (including China and India), the fact that the U.S. hasn't built a new ...

“Steal This Book” — the Sequel

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

Now intellectually — rationally — I know this is just plain wrong. It’s WRONG! But Goddamnit, my Inner Sickfuck thinks it's hilarious. Across the country, thousands of high-ranking executives have been receiving bogus e-mails pretending to be a subpoena. If this person clicks on a link in the e-mail, he/she will ...

About that military budget George…

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

Our government uses the War On Terror as an excuse for any and everything military. As Robert Scheer notes in his writeup at TruthDig, the newest GAO report is a horrendous bit of reading that will chafe you hide or at the very least cause you to grind your teeth ...

National Self-Examination Day?

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

The NY Times posted this intriguing story about why we human beings inflict pranks, humiliation, and degradation on each other, the varied motives we have ranging from malice to a fond spirit of fun, and the different ways we react to being on the receiving end running the gamut from ...

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

A Federal Appeals Court has issued a ruling that holds a website (roommate.com) liable for the postings of some of its users. The court ruled that if a website constructs a format that is designed to elicit responses that can be viewed to violate established law, then the owner of ...

Electricity Generated by Natural Gas, Coal, or Wind? Hmmm?

Monday, May 7th, 2007

Given the choice when presented the need for another power generating plant and the fact that global warming is a growing reality then one would tend to think that Green Energy is the way to go. In Delaware they are debating and discussing this issue and just as Wind ...

Mea Culpa Sorta

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

My Monday post was about the lack of a coherent energy policy in the US. At the end of the post, I used a story about Bush almost immolating himself by plugging electrical power into a hydrogen tank on a hybrid car as a metaphor for just how poor his ...
