Will Going “Green” Kill Us All Anyway?

Saturday, April 7th, 2007

Ok, so maybe the title of this entry is a bit overkill, but it got your attention now didn’t it? The American Thinker has what I consider an excellent article that actually thinks through the problems associated with the pending shift from our almost 140 year old humble, lowly incandescent light bulb. It speaks directly [...]


Internet Privacy 1 – Government 3

Saturday, March 18th, 2006

Google has successfully fought back on the government’s request to provide them with search data. Yeah!!

Two men wearing some type of uniform and baseball caps emblazoned with “Homeland Security” recently walked into a library in Bethesda, Maryland, demanded the attention of all patrons using computers, [...]


View of the Arab World

Wednesday, February 1st, 2006

I came across this today in my Internet browsing. It is quite an interesting and enlightening look into the terrorist problem we still face today. Excerpted from the Amazon book description: “In 2004, internationally known physicist Haim Harari was invited to address the advisory board of a major multinational corporation. In a short speech he [...]
