High flying or grounded? The Superman Mythology hits the Big Screen one more time with enhanced gravity and gravitas.
Year after year, decade after decade, wars march on. As Creedence Clearwater once said so wonderously, Who’ll Stop the Rain? With our nation poised upon the brink of yet another military action in the Middle East once again we must shout out for peace. We must sing to the highest […]
choicelady : Good night, KT – whatever you do, it will be wonderful. Yup – see you on the thread AND in the funny papers! Good night! KillgoreTrout : Wow, it’s been a great night. Lots of good, intellectual discourse. As Murph said, its great to be among people […]
Broad surveillance of a nation may or may not reduce attacks or be worth the sacrifice but it must be kept in mind what kind of nation it is that we’re intent on protecting and if we are pulling out the supporting beams of our home to build a barricade around it.
I thought that this weekend’s music thread should be sort of a do it yourself venture. Choose your own theme and the music that fits your theme the best. I must admit I’m a bit stumped as to what this week’s theme should be, so I hope you will choose […]
KillgoreTrout : Have a wonderful weekend. KillgoreTrout : CL, I love conversations about theology, metaphysics and existentialism. I would gladly take this up in the near future. I have to do the music thing before my brain shuts down for the night. choicelady : KT – delighted to be with […]
SPN comprises 59 affiliated think-tank organizations, including at least one in every state. In addition, other institutions, such as Cato Institute and Heritage Foundation are associate members. They are, of course, registered as a 501©(3) non-profit. Some of their support comes from Ruth and Lovett Peters Foundation, Castle Rock Foundation (a spinoff of the Adolph Coors Foundation) and the Bradley Foundation, a charity devoted to financial support for conservative causes. Most of their reported revenue was from grants in 2009.
This weekend’s thread is about any weather condition, or floods as such songs may address the stormy weather in real life or the type of stormy weather that those in relationships and those alone, may go through.
AdLib : Sounds good! Take care! choicelady : Will do – not much to tell about HOPE, but we will catch up. I’m back Monday afternoon and then plan to have down time before we gear up in July for the health care project. I’m needing that rest for sure! […]
As is expected, the Koch family has either started or contributed funding to many organizations. It could be said that they only fund organizations where they feel they will get the most bang for their buck as well. One reason it is important to know these organizations is because the MSM is not going to help you.
As you can see, the Koch family touches each and every American every day. It would be nice to boycott their products but the list is long and undistinguished and would be difficult for the average American to remember, if they participated at all.
The average annual COLA on SS has been around 2.8% over the 50 years or so. Looking back those same 50 years, the use of Chained CPI-U would have resulted in an average of a 2.55% annual COLA increase. Overall, the use of Chained CPI-U hardly seems radical.
In 1927, Koch developed a more efficient thermal cracking process for turning crude oil into gasoline. The larger oil companies instantly sued and filed 44 different lawsuits against Koch. Koch won all but one of the lawsuits, which was overturned after it was revealed that the judge had been bribed.
Tomorrow begins a four part series on the background and agenda of two of the most economically and politically powerful men in today’s America, the Koch brothers.
Memorial Day, a time to remember and thank the veterans who risked life and limb to keep uphold our liberties. Post songs about wars and better yet, the ending of those wars. Songs about remembrance, songs about peace and songs about America.
