A month or so ago aCOWARD announced he'd be reporting my to local LGBT groups for my homophobic post. I have yet to hear from any of the groups and wondered if maybe the complaint got lost in the mail or if the threat was an internet show of muscle. In any case here's my interview on this weekend's Pride Festival with Marketing Dir Kelly Heuss who never mentioned receiving the complaint.

When microcystin attacks

Who are you going to believe, a slick PR firm hired by the mayor or your trustworthy friends on social media? Are you going to make sure your loved ones are safe or risk watching them die a horrible, agonizing death? Can we really be certain the microcystin hasn't mutated and found new hosts on land, including the turf at local high school football stadiums?

Wind Turbine Syndrome a placebo affect

http://www.climatecentral.org/news/courts-arent-buying-wind-turbine-synd...

A week ago we discussed Wind Turbines causing illnesses.

This article shows that one side is clearly winning the legal cases brought forth by the two sides. The winners thus far have been the turbine companies.

In many of the cases the courts are ruling that a "placebo affect" is taking place that people are thinking the turbines are bad for them and psychologically they then become sick.

british prime minister cuts vacation short after ISIS beheading

United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron cut his summer vacation short to return to his office and discuss strategy related to the beheading of an American journalist by ISIS.

In other news, President Obama returned to his vacation and played golf with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning.

Ferguson the ideal American city

Ferguson, MO seemed to be doing everything right. They had low voter turnout in every election, the last one around 13%, were investing in "quality of life" issues like biking and walking areas, and were buys electing people with familiar last names like the brother of the current mayor. And they rely on traffic fines to fund the budget. What could possibly go wrong?

KKK: Scam!

is this racism?

I work for an organization that does a small amount of business with the federal government. We had an opening for a a technical position that pays in the $70,000-$75,000 salary range. It requires specialized skills and experience. We advertised the position and got two applicants. One of them was ideally suited for the job, but we couldn't hire him because our applicant "pool wasn't diverse." You see, if you accept federal money, you must have at least one minority candidate for every job search (even if that position is unrelated to the government funding).

So, this guy didn't get a job and we didn't get an employee. Human Resources has indicated we must re-open the search, which we will do with little hope of getting a "diverse pool" of applicants. We are being encouraged to recruit a minority candidate. Essentially, that means to get a minority who either is or isn't qualified for the job to participate in the search so we can check a box on a federal form.

Ferguson police officer has fractured eye socket

The Ferguson, Missouri policeman who shot convenience store robber Michael Brown suffered an orbital blowout fracture to his eye socket. Isn't it odd how, according to Al (I speak for all blacks) Sharpton, Brown was just minding his own business when the police officer started shooting at him--and somehow the officer ends up with a broken eye socket?

Clear Channel Boots Racist Sexist Pig Rush Limbaugh in Pittsburgh!

Looks like the hate mongering negative naybob of talk radio is now in a death spiral. Rush Limbaugh is being dropped by Cumulus and many other stations across the country. The American people are waking to the fact that these shills do not represent them. Here are a few recent articles of interest.

Another Democrat, another car, another problem.

Eric Holder going to Ferguson

Eric Holder stated he has a very personal interest in this case. Is it personal enough to go there and dictate how he thinks the case should proceed? Holder did demand that the video of Brown's strong armed robbery not be shown. Seems to me he has already convicted the Officer in his mind. Where is he on everything else criminal.He sees no other violations in the administration though,

Natural gas execs fear they’re next for regs

They are probably correct in their fears….
Check it out:

Natural gas producers are keeping quiet about the controversial power plant rules from President Obama, fearing they could become the next target of federal regulators.

At least in the short term, a government-forced shift away from coal power would be a boon for the natural gas industry, which is already experiencing a renaissance thanks to advances in the drilling technique of fracking.

The elements of protest

Many are traveling great distances to take part in the Ferguson SummerFest, including some described as vacationing looters. I'm wondering why, since they graced Toledo with their presence many years ago, the Nazi boys haven't converged on the Missouri town.

Sarah Palin the Republican?

Well the real Sarah Palin has surfaced with her tax the rich schemes. Seems she favor collectivism in Alaska's energy reserves. Her fellow Alaskans collected annual payments of some $1,200 a resident. Now the energy companies want it back! Sound familiar?
