Are Penguins Dancing Down the Dodo Trail?

One day when Antarctica's shores warm enough to sustain a little more mammalian life the release of predators upon fllghtless birds may present the penguin with a dodo scenario for extinction.

Sure transplanting polar bear from the Arctic might extend the prospects for that endangered Arctic mammal, yet polar bear too would probably add the penguin population to their seafood plate.

When cats reached the South Pacific dodo days were numbered. One wonders what species-even an arctic lynx might be the predator destined to spice up their menu with the penguin?

Free Political Criticism of Alaska Republican and Democratic Parties

Alaska's Republican and Democratic Parties have the chance to improve their job performance if given sufficient criticism-they don't usually get enough as the public is rather miserly with that so I will share some.

http://juneauempire.com/state/2012-02-29/senate-ponders-aces-changes-house-dems-defend-oil-tax-no-evidence-yet-need-tax

The State legislature is usually concerned about slicing up the oil royalty pie, and on how much to tax the oil companies-Alaskans don't have a state income tax and the 750,000 citizens rely on their legislature and Governor to decide how to pay for the state government and channel the money to the right people.

http://juneauempire.com/state/2011-07-14/parnell-signs-susitna-dam-legislation

When Sarah Palin was Governor she made the state tax policy on oil corporate profits progressive. When the price per barrel increased the state share in taxes increased too. The Present Governor is nothing like that. Governor Parnell is not a chip off the old block at all and seeks to cut oil corporate taxes with the theory that it would increase their production and the increased through-put of state natural resources to global corporations would in some way make up for potential future loss of state oil tax revenue because of diminishing production.

http://juneauempire.com/state/2012-02-29/bristol-bay-mines-bill-hits-senate-committee

Plainly the Governor is in the pocket of big oil and supports off shore drilling. The Governor also supports making the Susitna River drainage a kind of Ruhr Industrial Park with cheap electricity from a future 700-foot tall dam on the upper Susitna to provide cheap electricity 'one hundred years'.

The Governor certainly isn't looking ahead militarily a hundred years. Just one drone aircraft packed with next generation explosives could knock out the dam and plunge the rail-belt people below in the dark-all the way to Anchorage. It would be the first target to hit in event of any future war, and the vulnerability to easy destruction the next century might make the Republican Party even more reliant upon supervision by Chinese industrial consultants that might want to get involved with the ore processing too. Plainly diversified alternate energy accentuating non-state production is a better bet for liberty.

The Governor and the Republicans are sycophants of global corporate interests and fundamentally want to have a monopolistic power authority, consolidated political control totalizing political liberty and reducing competition and no environmental ripples on the oil sheen of Alaska's future. The Democratic Party as the weird sex party at state and national levels have low boundary concerns and just want to hop into one big happy bed as socialist DSKs.

Alaska's diversification is really somewhat illusory in the economic field as the large global corporations fundamentally own the state legislature via both party's competition to get priority at the corporate spigot. No other business is possible besides the corporate mining and oil of course, and even electrical power needs to be an anti-free enterprise state dominated phenomena.

In Washington State in the 50s and 60s a lot of dams were built to produce cheap power for Aluminum manufactures and of course nuclear bomb and weapons research. The Susitna Dam could produce new earthquakes and maybe a smelter for processing ore for vast copper mines near Bristol Bay (a recent 27,000 word privately funded economic impact paper is probably a butt kissing report by Anglo-American), yet the Governor wants approval of the Pebble Mine that would probably devastate fisheries at Bristol Bay eventually and is looking beyond that to providing cheap power down the road processing ore and metals manufacturing.

http://juneauempire.com/state/2012-02-29/gov-senate-bill-doesnt-address-oil-decline

Real Republicans in Alaska could look to California free enterprisers in producing fuel cell power plants for Alaska that would create jobs in the U.S.A. and be safer to operate in Alaska. Real Republican theory would let mining and industrial corporations produce their own electricity instead of acting like a Soviet organ to provide low-cost state power supply to industry. From the oil depletion allowance to the Republican reliance on oil for income and power as if conservation was defined by the fuel with the most high carbon dioxide output per volume the neglect of free enterprise and alternate energy development is notable.

The dialectical evolution of dumb economic and ecological development is an inevitable consequence of the kind of people that make of the Alaska government today. At least there is no point in wasting time with any hope for tomorrow. Medals and retirements to plush locations down south await them all, and with the broadcast media in their pockets no chance of local political independence meaningfully exists in Alaska or the U.S.A.

Envia Produced Highest-Density Electric Car Battery Yet

A high-density battery that might move an electric car 300 miles for $10 without needing to stop for recharging may be on the way. Envia of California has produced the car battery with the highest energy density so far.

http://www.hybridcars.com/news/envia-li-ion-battery-yields-world-record-energy-density-41768.html

The battery may produce electricity at $125 Kwh compared with $300 to $500 in Leafs and Volts. The price may drop farther as competition drives subsequent inventions. The ideal I guess would be to make 2nd world electric cars for fewer than $10,000 possible.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=new-energy-dense-battery-could-enable-long-distance-electric-cars


The company used a 4 million dollar federal grant and built on federal research to turn out a good product. There may be a variety of versions of synthetic batteries to jolt the electric car movement ahead while the conservative Tar Sands Co2 power school of economics looms like a global warming doom out there as a distant smoke on the horizon of space-time.

United Technologies once had a promising solar panel before a patent infringement suit from ARCO brought it down. Fossil fuel corporations have deep pockets to inhibit electric car progress.

Hogan's Fermilab Experiment for Digital Space-Time

An article on the physicist's experiment to determine if space has 'quantum jitters' as a basic characteristic is the lead in the February Scientific American. It’s a good low-cost experiment using lasers and interferometers finely tuned that might find it space-time itself is more holographic and uncertain itself.

The idea that mass confined to within a Plank length must be single applies evidently to black holes. All that mass within a logical destination in the form of a particular wave function seems improbable enough, yet with a non-deterministic brane containing the mass, who would ever observe it anyway to determine location or speed?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interferometry

The article written by Michael Moyer describes the holographic principle and explains something of the concept of the Universe as a two-dimensional sheet with information on it providing the 3-dimensional appearance. Evidently the way information is conserved going in to black holes is important (Stephen Hawking worked on it). One would think that there is some kind of theoretical limit upon how much information (mass) can go into a black hole and how small it might be.

http://www.bottomlayer.com/bottom/DPandMe.html The digital universe with a philosophical perspective on religion

Some of those problems might be obviated by the faster than light instantaneous all possible places (worldlines) of the quantum world. Perhaps information at black holes if condensed to a Planck scale (the smallest size imaginable quantitatively) becomes potential information redistributed to the quantum field outside solid-state space after warping space-time locally to the maximum degree. Does some of that information leak out anywhere as virtual particles or space-time expansion?

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=is-space-digital

Hogan's experiment to see if space is digital with quantum foamy jitters (what field would connect the discrete bits of space-time) is a practical way to look into small scale physics that would require a vastly larger particle smasher than is likely to be built this millennium (although one never knows for sure what might be constructed in the future).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_physics

One might enjoy an annual box score of the year's good physics experiments for the benefit of the reading public interested in those event-processes and the results.

Romney vs. Santorum for Poll Position

Mitt Romney has shown excellent character during his protracted campaign sojourn through the slings and arrows of media and pundit pummeling. It is ironic that he is something like RG3 in economic competence and that scoring high is used as a disqualifier by his opponents. Well, F.D.R. was from a good family and did a pretty good job as President too. One can't always prejudge the rich and assume that they will work against the general national economic interest.

Rick Santorum only earns 3/4s of a million or so a year so he is regarded as a regular guy. I am not certain what he is conservative about in economics though-maybe he wants to revolt against the British and send the 7th fleet to take back the footsie from the Queen and BP from alien control. Possibly tar sands in Alberta heated up would add enough Co2 to the atmosphere to be considered 'conservative'.

Either Santorum or Romney would be a good President.

False gods, Burning Korans And the Administration's Abominable Policies

On false gods and God's willingness to destroy those societies that pursue them, it seems to be historically factual. Well, if you accept that the Old testament of the Bible is basically a Jewish history book it is well known that God not only destroyed pagan enemies of Israel but also sent Israel into captivity for worshiping false Gods and pursuing abominable practices a time or two.

http://www.voanews.com/english/news/Afghanistan-Hunts-for-Suspect-in-Kabul-Killings-Karzai-Calls-for-Calm-140477113.html

Today, with the abominable practices of the Obama administration in gaying up the military and organizing homosexual 'marriage', we see Korans burned in Kabul and American soldiers murdered in the Interior Ministry, riotous protests, injuries and death. One may believe that sort of thing is just coincidence, yet the Afghans probably believe the U.S. military is becoming some sort of atheistic tool for godless perversions that the administration seeks to force upon the world-it is challenging to say that they are wrong.

Why keep more than a hundred thousand soldiers in a nation trying to stamp out Al Qaeda that merely moved to our 'ally' Pakistan for a decade of easy living in a recently razed compound in the bosum of Pakistan's military or intelligence community when the policy is bound to fail to impress the illiterate or semi-literate yet moral as far as the Koran's values go Afghan? The extended deployment gives jobs to military contractors and little else. Not even the unemployed in the U.S.A. necessarily like the U.S. Government or its high-living, anti-god employees incapable of getting full employment and health care for the poor into reality. The government seems like a revolving door for the prosperous, the globalists and the immoral more often than not.

In Afghanistan, like Iraq, administration policy seems just stupid and adrift without purpose besides domestic political posturing.

If the administration has a blind spot to the bad pr its pansification policy of the military has or will have upon perceptions by Moslems of the kind of people and policies the U.S. military pursue in Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Moslem world it should not be ignored by political planners in the next administration. The consequences of a gayed up neo-atheist godless military reinforced ideologically by Harvard atheist elite insiders that regard human life as no more significant than its D.N.A. stream deployed in Moslemnations may be expensive to taxpayers in that they shall lack the moral authority in antipathetic uniformity to traditional ways of the godly.

When administration policy is so consistently godless it is difficult to be a political apologist to Moslems for American good intentions in occupying their nation until some goal of non-violence is achieved. A godless U.S. Government of, by and for atheist, amoral foes of God wearing lab coats is not one that very many unsold in that way of regarding Americans and aliens alike can support.

The United States has probably reached a point to decide more quickly what it is doing in Afghanistan, cut its losses and costs, secure the stability of the Northern Alliance in their own state and leave before the Afghans learn how really repulsive the administration policy and intentions are. Maybe they will want homosexual marriages in Afghanistan before the military leaves.

And stop giving Pakistan 10 cents or more a year!

Lindsey Lawless & Greenpeace Board Alaska-Bound Shell OIl Drill Ship

The actree Lindsey Lawless is up a 174 foot tower on a Shell Ship headed for Alaska to help frill and possibly foul those endangered north waters above Alaska. Wow, she is a regular apprentice hero kind of women!

http://www.adn.com/2012/02/23/2333320/greenpeace-activists-actress-occupy.html


The major oil corporations are a kind of above the law, and oil depletion allowances besides kind of by your average Alaska politician kind of people. I'll bet they give the actress good food on that luxury support vessel though. Its good to be at sea until the life is all dead in it from carbonic acid.

The Possible Errors Found In Faster-Than Light Neutrino Experiment

The possible inaccurate use of g.p.s. signals that gave the arrival time of neutrinos traveling about 450 miles in 60 nanoseconds a faster than light value makes on wonder if it would be even possible to measure faster than light signals in a space-time field theoretically?

http://news.sciencemag.org/scienceinsider/2012/02/breaking-news-error-undoes-faster.html

If matter and energy only appear in light-speed or less contexts, and if anything else that does exist is in some kind of undetermined, non-material state in a quantum realm of non-determination existing prior to the apparent solid state Universe, it may be generically impossible for anything that travels faster than light to appear in the solid state universe.

In quantum entanglement experiments that remind me a little of the CERN-Gran Sasso neutrino experiments information is apparently exchanged between entangled quantum particles at faster than light speed. There may be no theoretical way to measure how much faster the information is exchanged because the speed issue may be irrelevant.

Cynics might suggest that the quantum entanglement experimenters also had 'loose wires' in each and every case of information being exchanged faster than light. Some though are skeptical of global warming.

The non-determined quantum world experienced by wave-particles in all possible theoretical locations when unobserved may not have space-time field characteristics like those of the solid-state universe with its light-speed limit.

Well, it’s an interesting point to think about.

I would guess that quantum entanglement is something of a partial wave function collapse, yet not completely. Some of the superposition of eigenstates of quanta may be reduced or positioned in some way between entangled particles so that one one particle's state is determined through the collapse of the wave function through an observation the entangled particle shares that trait too seemingly instantaneously at-a-distance.

Obviously I have no idea about the mathematics of these physical theories-just an interest in them for philosophical conversational purposes.

Note to Rick Santorum; The Parable of The Ark

The Earth is comparable to Noah’s Ark; it has finite resources that the crew must conserve until able to produce designed mass from zero point energy or discovery of how to travel faster-than light to get more resources in outer space. A good captain or president should not say ‘live it up; eat drink and be merry for God will provide new worlds after we trash this one and demonstrate total incompetence at managing global resources’.

Rick Santorum is correct that good conduct social is important. The crew may not become cannibals or queers because things are crowded. Good social morality must prevail concurrently with conservation and sober creativity. God instructed mankind to master the Earth. Wasting its resource, killing the oceans with carbonic acid and making the atmosphere too hot for human life is not required as a proof of religious faith. Instead it is the greed and indolence of relying upon a fossil fuel infrastruct5ure more than 100 years old. Vested interests hold the world at ransom, and vested interests make the Democratic Party a non-choice of immediate perversion for Christians as it is.

One might ask why the nation is offered Charybdis and Scylla Presidential choices. The answer is difficult to find. Maybe it’s the corruption of billionaires below the surface. Some candidates may want to burn the Ark’s planks to keep the temperature a little warmer trusting that God will reward their profligacy. If the Christian invention and humanitarian government has modern values that could be taught to the masses it should find more intelligent living arrangements not reliant upon crude oil.

Maybe Mitt Romney is the only intelligent candidate of 2012, that’s hard to say. The candidates seem to be such utter idiots these days without a fraction of the character of Bob Dole or thy smarts of Albert Einstein. One must not throw out Rick Santorum’s candidacy just because he doesn’t have all the right answers-evidently no one has this year.

Fox Reports Brawls Over Single Sex Marriage in Some State Legislatures

The 2012 November elections may become an informal referendum on the homosexual corruption of marriage in several states. With the Democrats basically the party forcing the policy along instead of providing full employment and zero federal debt their is no practical alternative for moral voters to voting for Republicans this year.

Plainly the Democratic elites in a few state legislatures have joined their homosexual judge fraternity in skidding through the fiction of single-sex marriages. Without divine insemination women have never born fruit of new human life themselves. Some men dressing up in women's roles complete the farce that shifts the burden of discrimination upon conservative single individuals of impeccable character that live alone pursuing the good for all mankind offering sage political advice.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/02/18/legislatures-open-same-sex-marriage-brawl-on-multiple-fronts/?test=latestnews


In ancient history the Romans were assaulted by the Cult of Bacchus with its bizarre gong show and strange mysterious sexual practices. Legislators have been subject to extortion, personal attack and various forms of networked arm-twisting by homosexual gangsters in select historical circumstances. One might regard the methods of the ultra-Nazi Ernst Rohm and his Storm Troopers led by a homosexual elite of ruthless political fascists that broke the resistance of more conservative than Nazi's German political opposition. One expects the state legislatures and urban judges to be levered by urban homosexual elites today as personal attacks are their essential reason and political modus operandi.

Global corporations consolidating wealth with a small minority of 43,000 corporations controlling a third of global wealth have seemed to support the homosexual corruption of marriage in the U.S.A. in recent years in order to further degrade the electorate and also because networking homosexual elites probably have gained extra power. The value to zero population growth planners of a corrupted homosexual hostile takeover of the institution of marriage is obvious. A spineless malleable populace will present no meaningful political opposition to the powers concentrating wealth and asserting global control. It was never necessary for homosexuals to destroy marriage to find some equality in society. Like much other recent politics the U.S. Government to is becoming a lie and forcing it's falsehoods and corruption on the people. Very few voters anywhere have taken it upon themselves to transform the U.S.A. into Sodom or Gomorrah-that is entirely the product of spoiled, unimaginative elites with wealth to take political offices or dump their historical and philosophical ignorance into judicial districts.

Era of Submersible Mini-Carriers in the Future to Increase Debt?

When Google got a Nevada license to drive robot cars on the highways it might have been a sign of the times of phasing out erratic human driving of fossil fueled vehicles in the years ahead. The era of large conventional piloted jet fighter aircraft is also being phased out as drones with tighter turns, smaller stealth profile and better prices take to the skies.

Will that mean that aircraft carriers will be reduced in size to support hordes of drone fighter jets? Submersible carriers with disposable kamikaze drone stealth bombers might be a wave of the future too. If human beings were nearly as clever at developing space ships for plain space travel without returning to the Earth's surface through atmospheric friction and deep gravity the economy might fare better.

All of that robot car and warfare junk means that a single evil programmer might rule the world one day. With regular human armies the soldiers have the option of non-conforming to evil and corrupt orders from evil and corrupt rulers. On the other mechanical mandible the robots, unless they think for themselves and learn to hate biologicals, always obey orders of radical leftists and ultra-conservatives seeking to increase U.S. public debt, U-6 and low wages.

Six Trillion Dollars Worth of Fake U.S. Bonds Seized in Italy/Libertarianism and Networks of Power

Italian police working with U.S. agents arrested mafia with 6 trillion dollars of fake U.S. bonds payable from the Chicago Federal Reserve Bank. Authorities say the gang intended to exploit the worthless paper as collateral to attain loans. The audacity of the scheme is greater than the Wall Street techniques of the 2000s were-in some trading houses leveraged 5 billion in assets to buy 100 billion dollars of paper, CDOs and whatever looked good.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/02/17/us-usa-bonds-forgery-idUSTRE81G11620120217?feedType=RSS&feedName=topNews&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+reuters%2FtopNews+%28News+%2F+US+%2F+Top+News%29&utm_content=Google+Feedfetcher


Networks of power tend to eclipse theoretical democracy and individual liberty and displace with socially and empirically totalizing economic and social structures the hypothetical freedom and free enterprise facts of life that existed phenomenally in earlier historical times.

It may be argued reasonably that in the first 150 years of U.S. history the nation was a greedy man's dream world with plenty of land and opportunities to support a prevalently libertarian economy even as capital compiled radically after the industrial revolution. The founder's ideals functioned well when the citizens were not really challenged to construct a democracy with egalitarianism in a challenging and populous social environment as in the third millennium.

Some Americans believe in error that returning to the political philosophy of the founders suitable for the first 100 years in a Libertarian context without the abundant land and natural resource proportionally available to citizens in return the 18th century would return America to prosperity without debt. Actually a reform of capitalism capping citizen concentration of wealth would be the basic social adjustment needed to bring citizen and moderate size business free enterprise to a prominence that it had in the founder's day.

In the absence of reform concentrations of wealth and power enabled with instant global concentration establish hegemony over political, social and economic structures with a one-way advantage. The economy is simultaneously globalized and the national interests decline as the political philosophy of the founders is farther eclipsed and transformed into an excuse to serve the global concentrations of wealth and power, and networks of power.

A scientific study found that of 43,000 corporations a small core tightly controlled more than a third of the global economy (SN9-24-2011-page13). Networks may be controlled by minority elites and shape the real economic and social development of the time. In these essays perhaps I will capture a sense of the possibilities of the times, though for a philosophical generalist it is a process a little like firing at a moving target in the dark.

Keynesianism, Public Debts, Deficits & the Under-taxed Upper Class

John Maynard Keynes; an astute observer of his times, formalized a basic function between government stimulus spending and national economic growth. Even during the First World War when times were hard in Britain, and afterwards with an economic slump the upper classes were of course not broke and still had deep pockets. What could be more reasonable than to stimulate the national economy with government deficit spending and tax the rich to pay for it?

Keynes (pronounced Canes) did not of course advertise the unstated principle of taxing the rich to pay for government debt. Franklin implanted the policy well enough during America’s depression to tax the rich at a 90% rate and stimulate the economy out of recession with a number of government programs. In America today however the expression of Keynesian government deficit stimulus spending concurrently with tax cuts on the rich produces only deficits that for the U.S.A. presently are reaching toward 15 trillion dollars. The U.S. congress is not honest enough or intelligent enough to use realistic economic formula to make the economy function.

The economy is a whole. Compared to liquid water, when the rich have siphoned all the water upward to a storage pool in their shining city on the hill and the workers and fields perish for thirst, government policy taps the pool to let the taxes on the rich be a pipeline letting cash liquidity flow downward to fill the race paddies so that vitality and rice may grow. The lofty management class too requires some water in ample quantity to finance their ethereal and mysterious economic contemplations in the sky-towers offices and create their own pipelines to return the water back up the hill. The contentious process of water rights-cash economy rights amongst users in the fields and those living in the cloud towers of the shining city on the hill is an interminable phenomenon.

Once the Un8ited States had F.D.R. and Dwight Eisenhower on their side. Now they have Harvard elites concentrating wealth and power with globalism negating national boundaries and suck-up socialists trampling individualism, individual equal civil nights and free enterprise. Class prerogatives have evolved to eclipse individual liberty. Concentrated wealth became a global network economic power phenomenon merging with one-party politics of the East philosophically (not spiritually because they are spiritually dead).

Sometimes in history a nations wealth may become concentrated to such a point that the economy stall. In a democratic society with free-enterprise values and a modestly egalitarian operating system federal tax policy with Keynesian premises is to then tax and redistribute much of the supply of concentrated wealth to economic stimulus programs via the government. What kind of economic development and who should get the stimulus spending is an equally important consideration.

A 2011 study found that in research on 43,000 corporations a small elite group controlled a third of the world’s wealth. If stimulus programs redistribute wealth to networks of already concentrated wealth the economic stimulus is unlikely to employ the unemployed. The federal unemployment measure of real people out of work that would work if there were realistically productive employment opportunities;U-6, has the U.S. rate of unemployment somewhere near 19%. Federal stimulus policy should always stress funding new businesses that will employ from five to 5000 employees for a year or more (or they can repay the loans that would otherwise be written off).

As much as talk radio and political sound biters like to regard redistribution of wealth for stimulus spending in hard times communism it is the history of 20th century economic progress in the west. The Reagan use of Keynesian stimulus spending stimulated the economy yet the concurrent tax cuts started digging the very deep national economic debt hole that seems destined to go through the Earth to China over time. The myth of tax cuts and stimulus spending performing supply-side miracles might work in a different economic world than the one made of people with 4 or 5 % Neanderthal and Denisovan genes, yet in such a world the stimulus might not be needed anyway because it would not be a democratic society.

The Dead Sea Scrolls Have More

The Dead Sea scrolls hidden by the Essene Community no later than 68 a.d. brought much of the Old Testament of the Bible directly to translators today. There were extra Biblical writings with unknown prophecies by Ezekial, Jeremiah and Daniel. One may get a sense of some of the minor scribal technical changes.

The Apostle Paul is believed to have written many more epistles to churches than were saved by history to go into the Bible. Perhaps some of those might be found one day too.

Faster Than Light Neutrinos Surfing Over Waves in Space-Time Foam?

The experimental evidence for possible faster than light neutrinos arriving in Italy from CERN in Switzerland raises some logical points.

1) If neutrinos travel faster than light how could they be seen at all by sub-light speed beings or their measurements?

2) Is the speed of light measured correctly? There are some variable speed of light theorists out there.

3) Could the actual speed of light be less than absolutely precise? Could it have values rather like pi at the high end that are difficult to measure and give accurate values to that accumulate for neutrinos over enough distance to make them seem faster than ordinary particles or photons measured?

4) If photons exist as fundamental particles in an electromagnetic field, would neutrinos that do not behave the same way?

5) Would photons and neutrinos have the same spin characteristics, and could quantum qualities of each wave-particle slightly alter it travel characteristics through different mediums?

6) If space-time is discrete instead of continuous, and if all matter-energy exists as a discrete field with minute spacing in various scaffolds or structures could neutrinos skip across those possible small dimensions and shortcut to faster arrival times than other particles that exist with different space-time quantum foam dimensional field relationships.

7) Even if neutrinos arrive faster than the speed of light it might not require that they would actually have a faster intrinsic speed than photons.

Can the Bedbug Infestation Be Frozen Out?

Cimex lectularius Linnaeus; the common bedbug is a relentless bloodsucker seeking out human warmth for dinner. Would nitrogen flash freezing be a clean, quick way of eliminating commercial infestations?

Burning bedding, replacing mattresses and other stuffed items for bed bug sanctuaries with materials designed to be inappropriate for a bed bug life-style and professional anti-bug freezing missions could be an effective approach to containment and reduction of the pests.

Ultra-cold is non-persistent chemically and might not be harmful to many material items if applied carefully. It might be worth some technological research to find out if it works very well.

Romney-Jindal or Santorum-Jindal in 2012 May Be the Ticket

One wonders if the north-south combination for President & Vice-Presidential campaigns will develop amidst the Republican Party challengers to the incumbent once again. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (a Rhodes scholar but don't hold Oxford against him this time) is a possibly too young for prime-time 41 years old, yet his experience dealing with bureaucracy during the BP oil spill and the hang-over from Hurricane Katrina may have given an advanced course to his undergraduate political desk job as Governor.

Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are not too insecure to have a quality player on their team. Jindal is no Uncle Tom (meaning no disrespect to all the Thomas' out there in referring to Harriet Beecher Stowe's fine 1852 classic work of literature) or as Malcolm X said 'yard nigger' for display by wealthy whites on the front lawn. Jindal may look a little too much like Prince Charles yet he is a bright guy that has enjoyed the field of Louisiana and real America while also becoming aware of global issues.

In a few years New Delhi will have a million and a half people riding its high-speed trains every day. In the age of atomtricity development the century old fossil fuel automobile technology is generations behind and atmospherically deleterious; Bobby Jindal may be able to work on the Republican side to lead the nation toward a new synthesis of personal transport and advanced mobility theory that would surpass the existing transit paradigms of gas engines or trains.

The U.S. national debt at 14 trillion dollars headed for 20 trillion on the Obama schedule needs a balanced budget in two years and payments of a half trillion a year to pay of in20 or 30 years. Each year the public pays about 3/4 trillion dollars on interest payments and gets nothing for that. The situation will only get worse with another term of President Obama.

Not only do Bush-Obama tax cuts need to expire, so does inefficient federal spending and corrupt over-use of federal programs by the privileged. Besides that, the capitalism needs reform (Adam Smith loathed the East India Company) so competition can be conserved, the world environment needs defense right away and the world population may be 10 billion in just 30 years. While no political party has its oars in the water this decade or last, a Santorum-Jindal or Romney-Jindal lineup may be the best ticket available.

Extinct Denisovan Gives Finger to Science

An extinct human species gave the finger to human scientists of today that enabled the sequencing of the genome of the closest relative to human beings that died about perhaps 40,000 years ago. The Denisovan remains were discovered in a Siberian cave.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2098113/Scientists-sequence-genome-Denisovan-caveman-fossilised-finger-bone-Siberian-cave.html

The finger and some teeth date to about 100,000 B.C., yet the Denisovans lived for about 60,000 years elsewhere in Asia. Australian aborigines and New Guineans have aboye 4 to 5% Denisovan genes

The Denisovans are interesting for many reasons. One is their timing in the human schedule of travel to America via the Bering Sea land mass. American indians did not arive here until after 40,000 B.C. by which time the Denisovans were about extinct.

Scientists have discovered remains of homo erectus in Asia dating about 1.8 million years ago. Human beings arrived in the far east it is reported in two basic migrations from about 45,000 thousands y.b.p to 35,000. Then later human beings arrived about 25,000 b.c. Those humans became the Chinese and perhaps pressured migrations across Berengia to Alaska. I would guess that American indians have low or now Denisovan genes.

Modern Europeans have 2 or 3% Neanderthal genes. Of more interest is the idea that the human line originated in Asia as homo erectus and then traveled to Africa only to return 1.8 million years later to loan money to finance the federal debt. One wonders if American President have more Neanderthal genes than Asian leaders who perhaps have neither Denisovan or Neanderthal genomic content evidently. Where are Jerry Ford quality leaders when America needs them?

The Advancing Atomtronic Research Efforts

From the ultra-cold Bose-Einstein condensates developments to more research in moving atoms through ultra-cold mediums the science of using atoms to convey information in 'tame' networks has developed.

http://aaas.confex.com/aaas/2012/webprogram/Paper5813.html

Atomtronics is like electronics substituting atoms for electrons in those circuits and other applications. Spintronics exploits the spin of electrons as well as charge, while atomtronics can exploit entire atoms in a large number of potential applications.

http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/arxiv/25197 'How to build an atomtronic computer'

Atomtronic application are few yet, it is thought they may be useful in connecting up quantum computers and states of entangled particles. Atomtronics present new ways of storing information and making batteries and work best in super-cold environments. One might construct very cold atomtronic quantum computer pure-logic circuits in some deep, cold crater on the moon and input solar power to charge it up.

One might imagine future atomtronics synthetic space systems construction of habitats of interstellar dust or whatever as information and atom processing technology synthesizes where the rubber meets the road.

Al Qaeda and Obama Administration on the Same Side in Syria?

The Obama administtration has so far seemed to back the revolutionaries of 'The Arab Spring' leaping to toss out their oppressive dictators and their concentrated wealth and power. Now that Al Qaeda's leadership have endorsed the Syrian insurgency it is a little more awkward for the administration seeming to be on the same side.

The esstablishment of a Sunni Koran belt from Turkey to Egypt through Syria, the Palestinian territories and Jordan across North Africa to Libya would create a kind of restored Caliphate like that of the or Abbasid in co-religionists, yet it would be something of a democratic social environment in numerous independent states rather than an Emirate.

Paradoxically it the the political philosophy changes in support of globalism preferred by U.S. political elites that would work to end the nationalism in the new democratic states. A logical transition would be an evolution toward an Iranian style congress of Mullahs with a Supreme Guide and perhaps local presidents of each nation as might be the developing trend in the Eurozone without of course, the any religion but godless atheism. Because rule by elites and legislation by the corrupt wealthy elites and judiciary seems to flourish in a global environment without the firewalls of nationalism the preference for creating New Gomorrahs of the American states might find the Emirate as a better political entity for corruption than independent nations.

Because modern U.S. political and economic leaders seem badly historically positioned for the development of good ideas of political philosophy that would conserve world resources and individual, politically cellular boundaries in properties of rights the administration's political context for Middle Eastern revolution may become non-interventionist or even reinforcing insurgencies that former administrations might have opposed.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/9077604/Al-Qaeda-leader-backs-Syrian-revolt-against-President-Assad.html

Well, Isreal may not be so badly set if the Sunni Koran belt is established as it may bring a reduction or ellimination in time of terrorist cadres as conventional governments inveitably purge their ranks to seek after their piece of the global econoomic pie. The trouble with that is the recalcitrant posture U.S. Government leadership has toward being a good example themselves of the things expected or hoped for in the poorer, democratic nations.

China's best in the world economy is done with a one-party system, while America's two party democracy wobbles about piling up debt, failing in educational standards, impoverishing it's poor, polluting the world's sea and sky and establishing global networks of concentrated economic wealth and power that leave most people on the beach watching the smoke on the horizon driving by in expensive cars.

Alaska Land Area Shrinking With Global Warming

Each year Alaska's north slope is receeding by a half a meter as global warming melts the permafrost shoreline. Global sea levels may also rise over time as they continue a trend started in the late 19th century. 2007 and 2011 virtual tied as the Arctic ice cover's minimum size or maximum melt. I would guess that 2012 will be a record setter for icecap loss.

http://www.arctic.noaa.gov/detect/index.shtml Arctic Change

As the Arctic ocean warms it will also become more tempestuous sending storms of greater intensity to low-lying coastal areas. More pollution from more human industrial activity will broadcast deleterious impacts farther abroad in the warming ocean.

President Obama Seeking to Exploit Christian Organizations for African Birth Control Missiology?

With so many Christian organizations doing good works in Africa the idea of using them to bring a contraceptive ethos to Africa might have occurred to the President's ZPG advisers. Liberia and Niger are doubling their numbers every twenty years. The Economist reported in December that by the year 2045 Africa will have more than 2 billion souls. Their demands for consumption of already stressed world resources make the contraceptive crowd fret I would guess.

World population may have already passed 7 billion. By 2050 world population may be 10.5 billion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_population

One wonders if Christian organizations become perceived by Africans as being dealers of rubbers and birth control pills and devices if they will turn toward Moslem missionaries that may not be as manipulated by their governments in the global condom wars?

China with its billion three hundred million has a stable population as does Japan. Africans are young and enjoy 6 kids per individual in some nations with few people over age 80 or even 40 for that matter. China and Japan are aging populations

It is interesting to consider long range Chinese policy toward the Africans. It is difficult to imagine that either China or Japan-very old racially insular societies, will look toward free borders with Africans who would swamp them, in a friendly way.

For the time being African wildlife seems almost doomed as the people will scour every available resource for exploitation and their governing institutions are weak and prone to violence. It is difficult to image a billion African fossil fuel burning cars in 2050 yet it could happen as low-millage U.S. cars are loaded aboard ships and sent across the Atlantic to off-load unto new African asphalt highways soaking up sunshine to warm the night better.

It will be an interesting future. At the least, new technologies will need to rapidly displace environment and prosperity destroying existing technology in Africa.

The Tao of Pacifism

I do not wish to overly upon the philosophical concepts of Taoism to metaphorize the watercourse way of flowing social and empirical events. It is merely convenient to borrow the metaphor of a continuum of change; of force flowing, in order to describe the interactive phenomena of pacifist actions in a phenomenal world of force.

Social and worldly change is about force and of course violence is regarded by some as the use of force. Flowing water has force only in relation to other objects-for-themselves, and also when the water is confined to a finite area from which it seeks to release or be renormalized to a state of non-force equilibrium.

The universe is a phenomenality of force fields and elements in deteriorating states of equilibrium. The tremendous mystery is how the initial state of the Universe began in perfect order without entropy only to expand and decay toward a new equilibrium at the lowest, coldest energy state at some future time not yet achieved. Us Christians believe that God spoke the Word and the Universe began ‘let there be light’, and there was light’. Well, that is a more parochial topic for the time being.

If one philosophically is in opposition to violence on moral grounds, perhaps reasoning that violence is stupid because there are many smarter things to do in life, should one then choose to act upon others and force one’s belief in the use of non-force upon the unwilling, predatory and ignorant hordes?

Perhaps acting within the world-for-others or within the dialectical social materialism of the era one might divert violent actions and policies toward non-violent, more productive applications of force. Human dynamics are within a violent continuum in-themselves and simply direct action to stop violence tends to produce violent such as in particle accelerator collisions at CERN.

Obviously redirecting violence to non-violent directions within a real social environment with semi-autonomous, moderately intelligent persons being the context of violent action, secular hypocrisy, deceit and so forth might require that one be as wise as a serpent and as gentle as a dove. Well, that worked for Jesus Christ until the arrest, trial and suffering unto death of The Lord.

Even if only God could divide the waters allowing the Jews to flee Pharaoh’s secular violent cavalry and power of slave-owning, pacifists today might moderate the social flow indirectly putting intention to transition states of affairs into non-violent contexts. It wouldn’t be easy I would think.

Obama 2012 Budget-Chinese 2012 Budget-Pres Obama Meets Vice President Xi (pronounced She?)

President Obama's 2012 budget has been criticized for kicking the debt further down the road and borrowing money to squeak through a second term. The 'after me the deluge' approach worked for President Bush II so why not for Obama I?

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/02/14/us-usa-china-idUSTRE81D08R20120214?feedType=RSS&feedName=topNews&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+reuters%2FtopNews+%28News+%2F+US+%2F+Top+News%29&utm_content=Google+Feedfetcher

Of more interest is the Chinese 2012 budget that was released in December. It has an anticipated GDP growth of 8%, and as the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business advertised in The Economist 'A new world operating system is now running.'

What that means for Americans in effect is that China has a moderately effective one-party political system that plans and structures its national economy much better than America's polarized democracy that has substantively schizoid political philosophy underwriting it . American democracy is owned by the rich from Super Pacs to ordinary run of the million dollar congressional campaign seats, and the populous is about ass incompetent as it could get with all of the confused, incompetent ideas from their leaders even about what the U.S. economic goals should be. Rush Limbaugh is perhaps the roll model for Lenin's notion that 'capitalists will sell us the rope we hang them with'..

America's democracy in head to head competition with China's one-party system may lose the economic race because the middle class and rich are just too damn comfortable to think about political philosophy enough to do the nation any good.

Eureka! Wall Street and the U.S. Economy

It is well known that the modern quantitative trading programming of elite Wall Street firms began in the 1960s with the adaptation of a Monte Carlo algorithm invented by John Von Neuman in the 1940s to winning at Black Jack by card counting and calculating odds (How to Beat the Dealer) to stock trading. in the 1960s Actual gambling casinos soon learned to recognize and ban card counters from playing yet free enterprise continued in I Vegas. On Wall Street alternatively quantitative computer managed ‘card counting’ was allowed and invested in heavily with supporting government deregulation. The result is the national concentration of wealth.

http://www.columbia.edu/~mh2078/MCS04/MCS_framework_FEegs.pdf

When ordinary free enterprise risk is submerged within a meta-structure of quantitative trading gaming of the system capitalism has become detached from its incidental role of building up as a result of meritorious free enterprise. The house loses when quantitative trading card counting’ quality trading programs skim vast amounts of investments.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhC1Qb-PQ5Q

http://creativemachines.cornell.edu/eureqa_download


There are new artificial intelligence algorithms emerging these days that will also affect Wall Street and reinforce new ‘card-counting’ players. I would like a word processing program that respond to my verbal instructions to insert page breaks or headers wherever I say, such as at any words in bold type, yet that kind of word processing though resembling A.I. would have none of the deeply analytical quality of Eureqa-a new program to distill equations for physical systems such as gravity.

Governments should at least be cognizant of the .A.I. gaming potential for economics and instead of degrading citizens to abstract units while raising the value of elite Quantitative programmers of wealth concentration it should detach ordinary business and citizen capital from subjection to the pervasive, networks and predatory traders.

New Science ran an article on Eureqa in January and reported that the free to download program has been downloaded more than 25,000 times. It is a first rate program that could be tasked by people for purposes of forming analytical structures and equations able to game up Wall Street better indirectly dumping more disadvantage on the mere inventive enterprisers with a streak of Thomas Edison in their spirit.

Evidently Eureqa can be given select parameters and select data and calculate what equations would represent the relationships amidst the data accurate. In time such programs as Eureqa might allow development of artificial intelligence computer viruses able to adaptively conceal their existence within a data structure perhaps arriving in bits to infiltrate firewalls and reassemble before dispersing for cellular community organizing of guerrilla insurgencies.

Adaptive artificial intelligence systems for quantitative gaming of Wall Street might be a logical step beyond the next step of predation upon traditional capitalized business structures listed electronically on Wall Street. Trading structures for quantitative artificially intelligence directed leveraging for arbitrage is one possibility for the too rich to govern and too politically challenging to regulate corruptions of democracy in the U.S.A. along with the primary institution of independent, home free enterprise.

When the card-counters enter the game all of the house mortgage holders lose.

Santorum Finishes 3rd in Maine Without Campaigning

Rick Santorum's 18% of the vote was not too bad for a candidate that did not campaign in the state. Mitt Romney and Ron Paul who did actively seek after Maine support finished with 39% and 36% respectively.

Arizona and Michigan are the next stops on the Republican primary battleground. February 28th will determine if Santorum or Romney are equally popular in t state two non-partisan North and Southwest.

Mediterranean-Dead Sea Canal Update

For generations visionaries have sought to bring the Dead Sea back to life.

With a 1200 foot difference between sea level in the Med and Dead seas the concept of filling the 1200 feet below sea level canal has been considered at least since 1855. The most recent idea is to exploit the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem railway tunnel to run a pipeline.

Some objections to resurrecting the declining Dead Sea might be made by the lucrative brine to sodium, potassium, magnesium chloride businesses as well as others.

It is hard to guess what archaeological treasures might be lost forever if the water level is raised 1200 feet; maybe ancient scrolls?

If the project could help Mediterranean tuna recover to robust numbers the canal route might be better. First though, the depths need to be scoured for artifacts by drone submersibles until nothing could be overlooked including evidence of the lost cities of Sodom and Gomorrah though there may be nothing at all left of those best forgotten settlements of reprobates.

Quantum Simulations Study Hydrogen Under Pressure

Hydrogen is the simplest known element. One might argue that fields-even dark energy fields and gravity comprise different kinds of elements I suppose. Hydrogen with a single proton and neutron and one electron per valence shell was the basic element of matter generated through the particle-wave zoo at the start of the present phase of the known Universe. Scientists have simulated how hydrogen behaves under intense pressure and increased heat...

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/06/100623165125.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen


Hydrogen behavior under pressure is interesting because as large clouds of hydrogen drew together under gravity pressure increased perhaps as in the simulation. Large gaseous planets may have formed and used similar phase transition processes.

Electrical exchanges increased under pressure and maybe that generates heat (the physics report did not explain, although sometimes electrical wires get warm with a lot of flow through too small of a wire).

I should mention that hydrogen has more than one form. With exchanges or loss of particles such a a neutron the charge of hydrogen can change. If deuterium forms then helium and fusion may occur with enough material and of course if stars form and nova in time other elements are produced that can go into the formation of different clumps of matter.

Smart Pebbles Developments For Anti-Aircraft Evolving?

The smart pebbles Star Wars anti-missile development program may have evolved a modern high-speed direct-fire kinetic anti-aircraft weapon trend for shooting at aircraft with a muzzle velocity of 20,000 M.P.H. -who can say what government and industry spend money on?

http://www.9abc.net/index.php/archives/7369

The electro-magnetic anti-aircraft gun isn't like the WW II Bophurs anti-aircraft cannon. Anti-aircraft weapons were largely replaced by anti-aircraft missiles after the Korean War. The newer era of anti-aircraft weapons may be another reason why conventional human-piloted aircraft are slowly being replaced by drone aircraft and stealth; they are smaller and less valuable and easier to conceal from ground crews.

The entire issue of proliferation of electro-magnetic 'cannon' is one that should concern civilians as it could be a future inter-continental ballistic 'stone' technology able to hit cities with conventional sabots. It human beings were as smart at reforming capitalism, communism and other global networks of power that inhibit individual free enterprise as they are at weapons development they would have a better chance for survival beyond a few decades on Earth.

I would guess that for the defense industry finding enemies may be an essential part of the dialectic of defense weapons development. Without credible enemies the rationale for developing large scale weapons programs is difficult to politically justify.

The possibilities for direct electro-magnetic kinetic weapons uses in space may be a driver for the future development of mass-driver accelerators of sabots to supplement the usual laser 'speed of light' technologies.

President Obams's Effort to Force Prophylaxis On Church Organizations and Schools Fails

President Obama's effort to force churches and schools to provide free birth control to employees has failed for now. One wonders about the idea that birth control is a health issue at all.

Certainly food is a health issue; without food one dies. Without intercourse one can survive indefinitely-even sailors adrift in lifeboats at sea have been known to survive several weeks.

A legal problem may exist in government regulations to require that anyone supply birth control paraphenalia to minors for whom sex is probably illegal in many circumstances. So the issue is actually reducible to sex between married couples. The Government might give a few free rubbers to adults, yet on a sustainable basis they should get rubber stamps or something to ditto the decrease of population from the I.R.S. as a tax rebate or give one dollar to a Presidential campaign fund.

I really don't know if birth control pills require a prescription. If they are available over-the-counter then married couples should get rubber stamps generically useful for pills if they can prove they are very poor and don't want to have kids, or more kids. Perhaps the Obama administration will next also seek to legalize happy suicide pills eventually as health care for society to reduce over-population.

Unmarrried should be able to afford birth control for-themselves for a quickie or two, and for protracted fornication they should really not expect taxpayers to supply the condomnations.

Actually men's gas station restrooms sell rubbers for 50 or 75 cents. Maybe women's restrooms should have those to so females can whip out a rubber from their purses when they feel the need to liberate their libido with close contact of the sexual kind.

If minors want to perpetrate sexual activities leading to pregnancy and gestation plainly they should expend on a super-deluxe rubber if they don't want to make the spring planting a family thing in the future.

It is good that the President has rolled back his decretal that a saturation of church groups and organization with rubbers and whatever to stop births. Maybe a new committee can be formed to investigate the several important issues in Congress.

PDF/EPUB Computer Program Upgrade Criteria?

I saw a woman using American sign language to talk with someone else today via the internet camera. That makes me wonder if there are visual sign language translators to change that into synthetic speech.

Adobe's speech synthesizer in version nine reads well enough yet still sounds rather flaky. I hope they can improve it.

One place they can definately improve things is in adapting PDFs to become EPUB files more easily than the present EPUB format that is not at all friendly for poetry and books that aren't written with just chapters such as in prose fiction. If one wants a chronlogical order without conventional chapters to use custom line indentations it is difficult.

A writer should not need to adapt his book to a computer language format designed for programmers instead of literary needs, and PDF should be able to let simple conformal criteria for placing breaks in existing PDF files enable PDF files to meet EPUB logic for book sales purposes.

Reasons Why (a poem)

If wind is a metaphor of illimitable change
through which appearances in existence of crumbling shadows
arising as so many dawns and dusks structured
with nothingness transformed into colors
for moments and nothing else
buildings moved through paper
cast within history's stream
of ticking clocks

Adjusting to the adjustments of gravitational compaction
drawing substance dispersed to a membrane of ever
itself a contingency in timelessness
events and space crashing before time
changes micro-data bits to things with wings

The One is before and immediately for the appearances
standing upon eternity's edge
every transcending beingness collecting the waters of time flowing with the amazement of change
reduced to everywhere.

Washington State Legislature Transforms Marriage into an Institution of Fiction

Marriage is a codification of the human reproduction configuration among the non-corrupt. Politicians of a political elite like putting legal fictions over on the public in order to erode civil rights, and the Washington State Legislature and Governor has tossed one of the classic social lies into the ring: homosexual marriage.

There are a variety of ways to conserve civil rights of citizens that practice homosexuality amidst those equal rights of all individual citizens. A psychological lunysization of objective facts subverting the constitution was already accomplished with hate speech legislation to double up on criminal law for specially labeled classes of society. The corrupt governments of today make paper solutions and fictions to address real world issues ineffectively.

The hostile takeover and degeneration of marriage by the elites in the political and judicial realms of power and privilage was never necessary. May string pullers being seeking to corrupt society sufficiently to create a plausible context for random, high-tech, sudden mass social culling of excess planetary population down to a sustainable level of 1 billion? It would be far better to go forward with off-world and on-world full employment, high-tech reason with strong individual rights for all.

The Apostle Paul wrote about homosexuality as a genre of the lie. Nearly 2000 years later that same old lie is being formalized by a decadent-era Washington state government into law. Perhaps decent people don't want to be politicians or judges so prosperous rift raft of a socially swinging set moves in and takes over to pad their nests with hip. Unfortunately when the reprobate lawmakers bring down the nation in time everyone suffers. The idiots in government force the corrupt way through instead of having any concern about pleasing God at the same time that they make their perverted constituents content. Lawmakers need to satisfy God as well as the stupid or incur the wrath of God some time I would think.

To reiterate; because women get pregnant in sharing eggs and sperm with men in a 'marriage' and because a new human is born subsequently composed of a marriage of the parental genes the institution of marriage was established to recognize and reinforce that phenomenon. It legally is wrong to create a bastard legal structure now that adulterates the fundamental premise of marriage making of the term a lie.

quote from the King James Version--


Paul wrote in Romans :

1 "16For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

17For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;"

Bank Ratings for Cash to Debt Obligations Ratio?

Depositors might want to know what their bank's cash to lendings ratios is. That is banks exploit risky investment strategies with their capital these days and ordinary people might want to have ratings so they would know if their personal capital is invested in a safe place.

Banks are little more than investment houses these days that use the cash from depositors as chips to play on the market through high return quantitative investing buying and selling competetively with the best purely quantitative stock and bonds trading firms on Wall Strret.

If Banks risk ratings were made then some banks could be given conservative AAA ratings and others junk bank status. Bank books should be open enough to Federal inspection that accurate rating can be given so depositors and mortgage buyers know if their banks has a 1to 1000 cash to debt obligations ratio.

Scientists have found that at least one mammal communicates in pure ultrasound. Philippine tarsiers screech inaudibly to human at 71 Khz and here at up to 91 Khz. Quantitative brokerage trading is like that-inaudible to humans.

Slavery Was Business as Usual Globally Until 18th Century

For most of human history slavery was a normal social institution. The practice was not learned in the Americas from Columbus and the Spaniards. Cortez met a peer slave owner in Montezuma who was also accomplished at human sacrifice.

It is difficult today to realize how recently in history slavery was abolished universally except for regions of the Earth where it is surruptitiously exploited as an economic vice on disadvantaged workers. Genoa Italy sent its prisoners to five-year sentences aboard slave galleys with life expectancy about two years in the 17th century. Christopher Columbus was from Genoa.

Tribal reaction against slavery and class exploitation has been severe to when the oppressed overcome the oppressors. Haitian slaves in revolt annihilated all white people on the Island. German Nazi’s in a confused social environment sent to death camps most non-Germans and especially Jews tat were regarded as wealthy trans-national oppressors.

One might look a little farther east and be aware that V.I. Lenin purged from Russia all farmers with more than two cows as wealthy and about five million Kulaks perished in Siberian relocation camps. One could not have expected German communists to be too sympathetic with any Jew with gold.

People never have enough money or power. Rush Limbaugh would never give up his global E.I.B. microphone and become a Christian evangelist in Tibet. The Chinese Imperial Government had their peons, serfs or chattel even until the 20th century trailing behind the liberal Russian Imperial Government in ending their oppressive institution called serfdom by more than a half-century. India and other nandering naybobs of negativism might regard their Imperial overlords-the British as oppressive neo-slavers of a sort right until mid-20th century, yet of course they had their own institution of the caste system to keep the undesirables down economically until quite recently.

Sometimes politics continues as today in the U.S.A. in a broken form incapable of fixing the economy and creating full employment. With more than 1% non-citizens in the U.S.A. a variety of corruptions flourish in employment numbers too high, in elderly people being excluded from social safety nets, in compelling a minority of Americans to pay taxes for the majority and so forth. The middle class and business want to cut spending on the poor to balance the budget. EVen if the poor were to not get their 1.2 billion each year for twelve million cell phones it would not balance the budget when the rich spent billions each month in Iraq just for the hell of it and to give defense contractors income streams.

Because pay phones have been phased out the poor without phones cannot communicate for emergency calls, to be hired by employers or to let the N.S.A. and F.B.I. listen to their ghetto conversations. Cell phone subsidies let the government track down terrorists through a process of elimination. It is not out of the goodness of the heart that the billion dollars is spent on cellular lifeline service.

American slavery was an inherited social institution pre-existing the American revolution of 1776. It is a complete misunderstanding of history not to comprehend that the founders new they could not eliminate slavery right away and instead banned the importation of slaves as soon as the Government was a little stablished in the early 19th century. Eliminating slavery would require a civil war-basically an economic war in 1865.

The Confederate slave owning class-the 1% of its day-was as unwilling to give up property; they regarded slaves as property, as middle class Americans today would be to give up fossil fuel vehicles or pay higher taxes. Human beings have had a universal willingness to exploit to death their fellow man especially when they are not of their own tribe or social class.

Africans first and foremost followed later by Moslems from Arabia and then the Portuguese created slavery in Africa. When the New World was discovered existing American tribes and their slave practices became anachronisms and were dwarfed by European slavery entrepreneurs selling their cargo from West Africa to colonists in the New World.

Gosh, people are rotten.

Rick Santorum; Does He Need a Super PAC to Run Against Barrack, Newt and Mitt?

With three quick primary victories Rick Santorum has better prospects in the Republican primaries ahead that will put up a challenger to President Obama. Rick Santorum has a simple campaign donation web-page, yet he hasn't advertised for a Super PAC such as the President has or that Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich benefit from.

https://www.ricksantorum.com/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=1&gclid=CJjKn_73j64CFQ5ihwodXBsdgA

In the lengthy primary trail the candidates have many rivers to cross in the battle to set the political borders meaningfully. Rush Limbaugh who occasionally claims to be a conservative (no conservative would have supported an end of don't ask, don't tell as did Rush Limbaugh). Mr. Limbaugh seems to be an ordinary sycophant for concentrated wealth presenting 'safe-conservatism' as do so many others since the end of the cold war.

I can't believe they have made sweater-vests an issue for Santorum. He should just wear used clothes from the best Phoenix thrift stores and get barbers to cut his hair that cost 5$ to be a trend setter on thriftiness.

Judicial Elites Toss Out California Proposition 8

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed a homosexual lower court judge's decision to rule that voters haven't a right to define marriage as between two sexes instead of between on sex. Legal fictions are a contemporary fact of life where wealth and power have concentrated through globalization and judicial tyranny may decide law in favor of the rich.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57372620/court-calif-gay-marriage-ban-unconstitutional/

The decision followed the NFL 'butch bowl contest between two powerful homosexual marriage states; New England vs, New York, with the Giants being the butch victors over the Patriots who as Massachusans are a little tarnished anyway. The President also announced he would accept help from a Super PAC and so perhaps also anticipated some pay back from a happy gay corporate world that devalues individual free enterprise. The Corporate world has purchased so much political influence that individuals are kind of dragged along to rubber stamp candidates conformed to the interests of the rich.

The salient point about the corporate-homo assault upon marriage is that the corruption of civil history was never a necessity to assert the rights of any individuals to have protection from civil abuse. That is, it was necessary to throw out the meaning and phenomena of matrimony in order to put homosexual males living together on an equal footing with pregnant women raising children with a husband who have shared genes to create new, synthetic human beings.

It is simple false that homosexuals must be socially repressed or degraded if they are not regarded as the equivalent of couples sharing pregnancy with traditional reproduction. The basically atheist attack upon traditional families is a way to dissolve the bonds that hold the United States together. In theory when a judiciary becomes consistently corrupt there is no remedy for the people except to end the government and form a new one. Maybe that is in the cards a long way down the road.

The homosexual crowd should have simply established external social welfare policies that make the advantages of marriage superfluous (besides increasing social diffusion of prosperity). They might have also changed contract law and reformed inheritance laws and provisions to enable people not related by blood to have specific rights of inheritance-yet those things exist in some way already and could have been simplified and packaged for the benefit of the perverse.

What Is U.S. Syria Policy? Any Link to R.F.K. Assassination?

What is the U.S. administration's actual Syria policy these days? In the good old days Syria was simple an enemy of U.S. Middle East interests as a foe of Israel and ally of the Soviet Union. Times have changed of course and we are left with the Obama administration policy of fanning the flames of civil war and mass bloodletting.

It is difficult to imagine that the present Syrian Government could simply retire to sailboats and enjoy the afterglow on the golden Mediterranean pond. The Alawites and perhaps Christians too would likely experience the usual sort of purges that follow decades of civil enmity. Maybe it would have the potential for being a former Yugoslavia, yet a regime change and new Sunni Government probably would not treat their former rulers as friends and neighbors. Hafez al-Assad took power in 1970 and his son rules today.

It seems to me as an American rather wicked to drive any nation toward civil war and blood purges even if they can sing it away with 'we didn't start the fire' media prop. The secular Baa’th coup in Syria in 1963 allowed the Alawites to take power. The Sunni comprising 74% of the population are The Alawites probably did not send Sirhan Sirhan to assassinate Robert Kennedy.

True Sirhan Sirhan is Syrian and the Syrians had a regime change in 1963 the year J.F.K. was killed and might have seen it in their stars as good luck (it seems like another weird conspiracy theory though), yet that is probably coincidence alone.

If it isn’t and if there was some sort of hidden Alawite Syrian plot record in the Assad archives probably it will never survive the chaos of fires of the civil conflict ahead that could ensue if the Syrian Government is transitioning through its protracted decline and fall process today.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Syria

The U.S. Government these days seems to be moving closer toward the kind of New World Order butch hegemony that regards democracy as rule by corporate concentrated wealth elites. Perhaps a Sunni takeover of Syria would end the Iranian influence and weapons trafficking routes to the Sunni Palestinian territories yet it is more likely that it would accelerate the affiliation of the Sunni ((orthodox) Moslem world and the rise of a Sunni Caliphate. Incidentally the word 'Caliphate' means successor. The west too under the Next Bush, Clinton or new corporate pick may emerge as a Caliphate for-itself as time rolls by.

The U.S. State Department has consistently failed to provide the public some sort of insight into what they expect a post-revolutionary Syria, Libya or wherever to be. The public cannot have a blind trust on foreign policy since the protracted Gulf and Afghan nation building. An out of civil control foreign policy is far too costly to the United States itself in lost opportunity for development as it goes into an economic hold pattern in order to support the Defense Contractors.

On that point I wanted to remark on the base realignment and closure round ahead and how if effects Alaska. Some of the state's Congressional delegation want to freeze the F-16 and F-22 deployment locations so the base at Fairbanks can stay open instead of sending it's plains to Anchorage wear they would be closer to intercept Chinese warplanes should they attack. Russia isn't too likely to squadrons of attacking aircraft next year, and it might be more cost effective to establish dog sled racing from Alaska to Moscow and an Alaska-Russia sailing society with lots of ports on the northern littoral instead of war gaming.

Actually it might be fun to have a Moscow to Fairbanks jet aircraft race around pylons each year for civilians including used fighter aircraft. ESPN might televise it and the race could be viewed by satellite as well.

Returning to Syria; It seems probable that an embattled Assad regime will fight to hold on while the Moslem Brotherhood expects N.A.T.O. to intervene eventually in order to have a base closer to attack Iran if necessary in order to defend against Iranian nuclear proliferation. Syria hasn't got oil so that can't be an incentive.

The Government may not be able to support a nice government in every nation around the globe. The means to an end as important as the end for-itself in cases where a lot of civilians perish. Is it a good idea to continue to stimulate a possible Syrian blood bath down the road ahead? Aggressive war is evil, yet aggressive proxy conflict seems to be more acceptable amidst some diplomats. Perhaps the real human costs of change should be evaluated as well as the end. In the future perhaps democratic individualism will be inevitable globally if concentrated wealth and power are set aside by technological diffusion.

Mitt Romney vs. Obama Super Pac: The Matchup

How would Mitt Romney do in the advertising campaign this fall against President Obama and his super PAC?

Since the President has decided to accept unlimited donations from the world or whomever to attempt to buy a second term in office his ethical choices now present a different menu. The President has decided to return large campaign donations from the brothers of a Mexican fugitive charged with Mexican political bribery, assassinations and possibly drug trafficking. That 200,000 dollars is going to be returned to the Cardonas brothers to harmonize with the Democratic Party's highest ethical standard.

The Obama campaign team can count on maybe another billion from vague offshore or extraneous donors that would prefer to have his political style another four years. They would have a tough time matching up with Mitt Romney on two important issues in the advertising war though. Attacking Mitt Romney's record in Massachusetts would attack the constituency of the President's second 'sponsor' state, and attacking Mitt Romney on health care would in effect be an attack on Obamacare.

How would Newt Gingrich fare against the President's billions (presumably including Warren Buffet whose Secretary was given the special seat of honor in the recent State of the Union address)? Newt Gingrich would probably lose the advertising battle with his background in comparison to the Presidents.

Newt Gingrich was one of the primary designers of the 90's flamonomics that built up unto the 2007-2008 banking and home mortgage crisis and is an essential opponent to patching up Wall Street. Mr. Gingrich is also a probably target of pervasive and protracted personal attack by Mr. Obama's homosexual supporters as the butch effort to compel through law a civil rights hegemony over straight males is a preference of many and of some wealthy elites seeking after concentration of wealth, power and the degradation of the common man. Personal attacks instead of reason are the consistent modus operandi of that political vector.

Former Speaker Gingrich's personal ethics vulnerability to counter-propaganda by the Democratic PACs would be a phenomena lasting several months, while a few debates; three or four at most would not provide the Speaker with any compensating decisive advantage able to nullify the advertising defeats. Mr. Gingrich might run against the President's history before he took office in affiliating with various Chicago personalities yet that is to a certain extent old business while the neo-scandal of Mr. Gingrich's past would be as persistent possibly as Edward Kennedy and Chappequidick was in the talk radio egosphere.

Dzántik'i Héeni

Juneau does have an interesting history. It's name before Joe Juneau and Frank Harris swapped eponyms for the place named 'where the flounders gather' (not thinking ahead to the Alaska State Government's environmental policy at all) was Dzántik'i Héeni (in Tlingit).

2012 Yukon Quest Dog Mushing Race Starts in Fairbanks

The 2012 Yukon Quest dog sledding race got started in Fairbanks Alaska today with mushers headed a thousand miles to Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory of Canada. This best, toughest dog sled race could be the forerunner of a super dog sledding Marathon one day from Whitehorse through Fairbanks and on across the Bering Strait to Russia and Moscow-well, at least I may not be the only one to have imagined that future race.

An Odd Super Bowl 46

When New York's legislature gave in to President Obama's arm-twisting personal visit to N.Y.C. to bring a decisive influence to the legislature's decision to make single sex marriage legal in New York State to join Massachusetts as the two power states of single sex marriage on the East coast it might have began an inevitable political correct (to the administration) progression toward what seems like the inaugural Butch Bowl to determine which state will be on top.

NFL football seems to have scripted finishes to championship games since the last one-sided victory by the Cowboys over Buffalo so long ago in order to get better ratings. Political correctness too seems to have put the Patriots in the Superbowl so often following 9-11 that the idea of the Buccaneers winning seemed absurd. It is easier to envision Bin Laden as a Buccaneer than a Patriot. The Jets too are nearly o.k. for a non-traumatic appearance in the Superbowl, yet the rush job on the zero population growth single sex non-reproductive marriage agenda is a bit of a stretch.

Well, it isn't the players perhaps but the management that drives the corporate agenda including football marketing. Football is free enterprise and a good example of how if capitalism is left to function without government supervision the winner of the Butch Bowl will solve global warming and make the alternative remedy of claiming its a hoax unnecessary.

Maybe a new kind of sport derived from football could take off with five teams playing on a two level steeplechase-emulating course with ten end zones, curves and a maze in the middle. Some things should change yet some things should be left behind.

Why Beauty Isn't Synonymous With Morality

Morality describes the good, the bad and the ugly equally well. The beautiful is just that, while aesthetics are an abstract contemplation of form, structure, relationships, values and so forth.

Skinnerians might expand _________' definition to include 'objects that organisms desire' as of moral value. If water for instance is a good or benefits thirsty conscious creature does it not also benefit amoeba? Morality cannot be reduced to meaning 'things that benefit organisms by satisfying their desires or organic needs' without making conscious thought unnecessary. Perhaps the contribution of consciousness to morality would then be in construction of a trophic order to get people to the waterhole without stampeding, war or crime.

Morality is what people culturally actually do socially-that is what values they have. Those values may change over time during pagan eras with infanticide, in the present era of abortion and so forth.

One cannot easily equivocate beauty with the morally good. If a beautiful woman steals a great work of art-a painting-then the theft is good if the painting belonged to wicked people that pollute the environment, yet if an ugly, even a hideous pejorative runt steals the painting then it is evil? Plato associated the beautiful with health-fair enough. There are poisonous plants and flowers of course, in mushroom picking usually the colorful glistening ones are dangerous. There are probably very many beautiful, lethal aircraft armed with wonderfully sophisticated weapons of mass destruction.

The laws of God such as 'thou shalt not steal' are beautiful in that they personify through the presence of divinity, perfection. In that case if one accepts the parameters then beauty and morality coincide. Like the areas of a Venn diagram however it is not necessary that all elements appear morally good and beautiful at the same time or in the same area.
One may move to Montana after being lost at sea for 80 days and move to a desert after being lost in the snow for 8 days. The sight of one element may be beautiful one time and ugly another.

In Answer to the Question; 'Can Definitions Be Wrong?'

With ontological relativism as the phenomenal norm of language, definitions can be defined as whatever they are given values as. Definitions are comparable to algebraic literals that await content.

The formal, logical mapping of given language values would be a metaset. Logic would need to be correct instead of incorrect for effectiveness.

Definitions can be locations within a constructed space-time matrix with temporal values. The ontology of any given matrix would comprise a linguistic Universe for-itself.

A user would want to discover the meaning of definition and of right and wrong values within a given ontology if concerned with transactionally meaningful communication.

On Jeremiah 23

Reading 1 Kings 19:16 "16And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room."

The determination of God to influence history is remarkably presented in Jeremiah 23 and here in 1 Kings 19-16. In subsequent verses Jehu eliminates Ahab's heirs accomplishing the purposes of God. The prophet Elisha following Elijah brought the swift sword of the word of God to restore social history toward a strait course consistent with the plan of God.

That is why when later reading the prophet Jeremiah's interactions with God, the categorical disappointment of God with the people of the era- his chosen people- and their leaders seems like an expression of certainty on how to restore society to an order consistent with his purpose. He saves the remnant sent to captivity in Babylon for seventy years and wastes the rest.

Evidently the period of Babylonian captivity brought the Jews back to a closer relationship unto God and away from all the non-sense of decadence, cruelty and worship of false gods.

Here is the passage from Jeremiah. Chapter 24 is just as remarkable.

(KJV)

Jeremiah 23
" 1Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.

2Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.

3And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.

4And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD.

5Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

6In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

7Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

8But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

9Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.

10For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right.

11For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.

12Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.

13And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err.

14I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

15Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.

16Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.

17They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.

18For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?

19Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.

20The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.

21I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.

22But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.

23Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?

24Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

25I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

26How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

27Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.

28The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD.

29Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

30Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.

31Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.

32Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.

33And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the LORD? thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the LORD.

34And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say, The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house.

35Thus shall ye say every one to his neighbour, and every one to his brother, What hath the LORD answered? and, What hath the LORD spoken?

36And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.

37Thus shalt thou say to the prophet, What hath the LORD answered thee? and, What hath the LORD spoken?

38But since ye say, The burden of the LORD; therefore thus saith the LORD; Because ye say this word, The burden of the LORD, and I have sent unto you, saying, Ye shall not say, The burden of the LORD;

39Therefore, behold, I, even I, will utterly forget you, and I will forsake you, and the city that I gave you and your fathers, and cast you out of my presence:

40And I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten
