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."

Border Patrol Agent: Immigration Crisis has been Orchestrated as “Asymmetrical Warfare” to Destroy the Country from Within

Last week former U.S. Rep. from Florida and current Fox News contributor Allen West urged everyone to watch a YouTube video of an interview with Zack Taylor. Taylor is the chair of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO). He's been quoted in the Washington Times, and interviewed by the likes of Breitbart Texas and The Blaze.

But it's Taylor's recent interview for a documentary by Chris Burgard that's been burning up the conservative internet. Burgard is filming "Back to the Border," a sequel to his 2006 original documentary, "Border."

Fukushima to Blame.

California Coastline Becoming Like Dead Zone, Fukushima to Blame?
Kim M., California Correspondent
August 24, 2013

I hesitate to say this, because I know that *they* will most likely use my (and others) observations as an excuse to crack down on the enjoyment of our coastline even farther than they have already, but…

The California coastline is becoming like a dead zone.

Hi. I've been banned from "that other site".

So yes, banned from "that other site" for daring to speak up to counter the racist/class-warfare comments and disrespect towards the OTHER victims of the north Toledo apartment fire (the residents). Or at least that's what I think, because of course there was no warning, no contact, nothing from that other site's admin. Because no matter how you slice it, to make the statement "What is there to gain on a multi tenant building in North Toledo. Call it a loss and let the insurance company take over." is disrespecting the unfortunate residents, the owner, and the neighborhood .

Jihadist Group: We Started Arizona Wildfires.

Certain Green Tea's May Not Be So Healthy After All..

"Researchers tested 26 types of green tea beverages and supplements and found that some ready-to-drink teas were mostly sugar water. Some of the supplements (which claimed to speed weight loss or help combat cancer) had high levels of caffeine which weren't listed on the labels, and some bagged teas, especially those containing tea grown in China, were contaminated with lead.

"The green tea plant is known to absorb lead at a higher rate than other plants from the environment, and lead also can build up on the surface of the leaves."

FERTILIZER PLANT EXPLOSION NEAR WACO, SAUDI ARABIAN FIRST SUSPECTED IN BOSTON BOMBINGS QUIETLY DEPORTED, OBAMA MEETS YESTERDAY WITH SAUDI PRINCE --DO YOU TRUST THE GOVERNMENT WILL TELL US THE TRUTH? (VIDEO)

Baby Boomers remember the Cold War and how we learned that the Russian government controlled the media and thus what its citizens were told. Who knew that we would be living in a similar environment during our lifetimes? If it weren't for the advent of cable television and the Internet, we would be relying on left wing NBC, CBS, and ABC as our sole sources of information. Yikes!

Here is some information you probably won't see on the above-mentioned media.

'God Help Michigan' Attorney Fieger blasts Right-to-Work Law

While Obama is in the WH, I suggest FOREIGN news services (WARNING: GRAPHIC)

It's a shame that the "mainstream" media is obviously in bed with and covering for Obama.

I've found that, if you want to know what is REALLY going on with Obimbo's foreign policy, you should read foreign news outlets like the english version of Pravda, Le Monde, and Al Jazeera.
This story, which I have not seen or heard of from any American news outlets, is from Russia.

Although it's not stated in this story after researching it it's easy to see that he was most likely a member of the IUPAT which has a branch in Portland and contracts for work on the Navy ships.

Job Creation GM Style

From USA Today -General Motors agreed in Shanghai today to develop an electric vehicle platform with longtime Chinese partner SAIC. It effectively moves GM's future electric vehicle development to China. Unclear is whether this would also lead to assembly of future EVs for the U.S. market in China.

Chevy Volt Is One Hot! Car

As the owner of a Prius I'm always interested in stories about cars using batteries as a power source for propulsion. I've had no trouble in the last five years with my first Prius and liked it so much I've purchased a second.
Some people wonder why I would buy a foreign car instead of one made right here in the good ol' USA by union labor. Here's one example.
Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- A U.S. House subcommittee will hold a hearing into reports of General Motors Co.’s Chevrolet Volt catching fire, a spokesman for Representative Darrell Issa said.

I'm Not Good At Economics But This Doesn't Seem Right

Here's the latest on the union built Chevy Volt from the Associated Press. NEW YORK (AP) -- General Motors will buy Chevrolet Volts back from any owner who is afraid the electric cars will catch fire, the company's CEO said Thursday.

In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, CEO Dan Akerson insisted that the cars are safe, but said the company will purchase the Volts because it wants to keep customers happy. Three fires have broken out in Volts after side-impact crash tests done by the federal government.
