      If you are one of the multitude of folks out there who think that somehow you will "get Mr. Exxon" with a magical tax on oil profits let me disabuse you of the notion. Such a tax would only hurt you the consumer and the economy at large.


     Firstly, costs are fungible. Whether these costs are material inputs, labor, or taxes makes no difference as all are equally redistributed not to the business itself but rather to the consumers who bu...

Time is Money.This saying is also reversible to:

Money is Time. 

     More properly, money is an abstraction of time used by societal groups to efficiently allocate the time of it's members. Wealth is created by making time available more efficiently to members of the group.

 

     A simple example of how this evolves in the (fictional yet strangely progressive) Neolithic Uj tribe in the tiny Village of Kcodrats&nb...

     Just when I thought he was quietly fading away into Billary's shadow Barack Obama pulls out a big gun:

 

"Barack Obama is vowing to detail all his earmark requests today and is challenging his Presidential rivals to do the same. " -TPM Cafe

 

     Not only has he made the challenge, he has followed through already here.

 

     Will Billary et al follow suit? If they do will it hurt them?

     Sometimes I cruise the Net simply to accquaint myself with various strains of rhetoric. I find this useful as it helps me to spot when people who are presenting themselves as moderates are actually pushing much more extreme agendas than they let on. Second Seedline doctrine is a good example of this.

     Many conspiracy theorists appearing in connection with seemingly more mainstream things like the 9/11 "Truthers" movement (Rosie O'Donn...

From Sheryl Crow's Biodiesel Bus Blog (via Wapo)

 

Crow (4/19, Springfield, Tenn.): I have spent the better part of this tour trying to come up with easy ways for us all to become a part of the solution to global warming. Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating. One of my favorites is in the area of forest conservation which we heavily rely on for oxygen. I propose a limitation be put on how many squar...

     Here is the indirect reason for this entry. Via Espn of all things.

"At a marina near Russell Springs, workers spent Monday moving million-dollar houseboats to moorings where they can stay afloat after the water recedes.

"We're kind of at a loss," said Estelee Slusser, who operates the Alligator Dock No. 1 marina. "It has just happened so quickly. We really don't know what to do."

The Army Corps notified local officials and business owners before making the plan...

     *Disclaimer : I do not support any candidates as of yet nor does Barack Obama's politics come anywhere near my own.

/rant on

     So Barack Obama apparently attended a Madrassa in Indonesia for a few years as a young child. I could give a damn. Here is why:

 

- The guy verifiably went back to live with his maternal grandparents in Hawaii by age 10.

- Religious programming of any ilk works poorly without constant re-enforcement.

     Some commentors have taken me to task over two of my recent articles highlighting the possibility that the UK and Europe are slowly drowning under a slow but rising tide of Politically Correct Dhimmitude. Some of them seem almost desperate to believe that I and others are exaggerating, even to the point of mounting a "defense" that goes something like this (paraphrased):

"It isn't bad that Christmas references are off limits in many cities in the UK because ...

      I have a very geeky intelligence article for later but for now I want to update the article I wrote about the creeping effects of Islamism across Europe and Britain. Many commentors to the original article simply couldn't beleive the the problem is as serious or as pervasive as the linked content would seem to have suggested. For those folks I give you this tidbit from the mornings news perusal.

 

"Halal meat is being served to pupils in state ...

Greywar – Agent of the Vast Doughnut Conspiracy*Thanks to chiprj for helping to fix this article!     Note : Sorry for the prolonged absence. My perverse nature actually made it more difficult to start writing again the more people clamored for it. I know, its weird. Nonetheless I am back and with a multi-parter no less! (Settle in folks this is a long one...) - G

There are three in my current office who could serve in an intelligence capacity: Skyler, Kenny, Robert. Each has the aptitude necessary for intelligence work.. should I push them? God, I hate being away from the national need.

            Folks, this one won’t be for the easily bored or for people who only stop by my blog to see creative use of the F-word. If you don’t care about how intelligence is collected, processed, and disseminated by the U.S. military just stop here. Might I suggest Fark.com instead?            Ok, now that those guys are gone we can get right to the geeky heart of the matter at hand:&n...

    It was my first day in Voice Operations Branch (VOB) and I was slowly adjusting to the realization that I would be spending this whole year in the company of drunks, whoremongers, and other assorted losers.

    My first day was spent proving that I could turn this :

     Once again I risk the revocation of my membership in the VRWC by not following the subliminal commands sent out by the mothership but I like living dangerously.

     Tom "The Hammer" Delay's current woes are of his own making. Delay is one of those Congressmen who exude the "Old Boy" aroma from every pore and I am happy to see him step down from his leadership position in the House and I would be even happier to see him resign from Congress altoge...

     A simple yet subtle demonstration of socio-economic forces :

     Let us begin at 0900 Fort Hood time with 4 Army Privates... Worthy, Walker, Fiffie, and Neddo. Split them into two teams of Worthy/Fiffie and Walker/Neddo and give each team the task of mowing 4 acres of grass with one push mower and one weed whacker to each team.

     Our NCOIC's for this detail give each team slightly different sets o...
