Quote:
"A lot of people have used this data to argue that transporting oil via pipelines is safer than rail. And that’s true, if your idea of safety is defined by the frequency of accidents, regardless of how large the accidents are. If, however, you think massive releases of oil into the environment pose a greater risk to human health, than pipelines are the greater evil."
And this:

"Peaceful Majorities" ARE Irrelevant!

Improvements at the VA far too slow!

Where Is Fox News' Outrage Over Keystone XL Land Rights?

Quote from article:
"Fox News consistently pushes fears of government "land grabs" surrounding environmental regulations. But the network celebrated the recent court decision allowing TransCanada to force construction of the Keystone XL pipeline on private land -- with no mention of the threat to landowner rights.

Stand with cops? They could make it easier

Perhaps you have also heard the radio ad for a website called Stand With Cops (standwithcops.org). The purpose of the site is to encourage people to write messages of support for police.

As a kid, I was taught to respect policemen--I still do. But the police unions could sure make it easier for me to get motivated to support cops if they would stay out of politics.

The irony of the protests against the police is that most of the participants are people who vote Democrat--the liberals who think "we've got to feel sorry for these poor minorities because the cops are singling them out because of the color of their skin." Yet, ALL of the police unions support, fund and encourage their members to vote for Democrats. Be careful what you wish for.

Ohio Wind Farms: The results

AT CROSSWIND
http://www.farmanddairy.com/news/wind-test/234578.html
Quote from article:
The projects, known as Timber Road Wind Farm and Blue Creek Wind Farm, are still young. But, according to managers of both, they’re already performing.

“The (Blue Creek) project has delivered what we said it would,” said Dan Litchfield, senior project developer.
Production Results

That includes about $2.7 million in annual tax payments, $2 million annually in lease agreement payments, $600 million from the company that built the farm, and enough energy to power about 76,000 homes.

NYPD Arrests Down 66%!

Oh, my! The NYPD is virtually on strike. Arrests for minor crimes are down 94%, and overall they are down 66%. You have to be careful what you ask for--you just might get it. Criminals in this country should incorporate, and then sell shares to the public!

The scourge of term limits

I am posting a link to a recent article in the Detroit Free Press. One of the most significant issues with which it deals is the issue of term limits for elected officials. The writer purports that partisan redistricting and term limits have severely limited the ability of Michigan's voters to affect their government.
IMHO the same applies to Ohio voters and Ohio state government. I have often stated that the only thing term limits truly accomplish is to limit the choices voters have for elected offices. But this writer puts in into the context of the real situation in Michigan today.
