They Think You’re Stupid – That You’ll Believe This BS

“More North Carolina Residents Warned Of Contaminated Drinking Water”

According to the Associated Press, 152 out of 163 water wells tested within 1,000 feet of Duke Energy coal ash ponds failed to meet state standards for groundwater — a 93 percent rate of contamination. A large number of the tests reportedly showed high levels of lead, vanadium, and hexavalent chromium, the latter of which is carcinogenic to humans.
Duke Energy is denying its coal ash ponds are causing the pollution, saying it is occurring naturally. Duke is, however, providing bottled water to a small fraction of the affected residents.

 “We do not believe our ash basins are responsible for the water quality concerns, but we want them to have peace of mind while more study is done,” Paige Sheehan, a Duke spokeswoman, told the AP.

Ever wonder how they live with themselves and their lies?

Ductos Exemplos – A Reminder Michael Grimm

“In addition to Semper Fidelis, Marine Corps Officers also embrace the phrase Ductos Exemplo, ‘to lead by example,’ the motto of Officer Candidates School (OCS). Instructors look for candidates who display self-reliance, discipline and responsibility.”

From this article it would seem you are not living up to these principles… particularly discipline and responsibility!

The Poverty-Stricken Average Joe Might Ask “Who?” And – So What?

And then… “As if you clowns are really going to do something about it because there is simply too much BS associated with your constant talk, talk, talk…” well, you get the idea.

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would lift about 5 million Americans out of poverty, according to a study released earlier this month by University of Massachusetts-Amherst economist Arindrajit Dube, who signed the EPI letter.”

I Once Knew A Man

Who would be happy to tell you that “the nightmare is over.”

He also taught those like me about trying and failing. What he said was that trying and failing, trying and failing, trying and failing, led to discouragement. He followed that by explaining that getting discouraged over and over and over led to quitting.

Quitting is a dangerous proposition for anyone of my nature. And I  am having repetitive moments of thinking of quitting. Which, thankfully, in my world today, provides ample reason to fight back.

Thank you Father Martin!!!


Check it out… come to your own conclusion… Kickstarter

Quoting from their “What Is Kickstarter” page;

Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.

We’re a home for everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of projects, big and small, that are brought to life through the direct support of people like you. Since our launch in 2009, 5.4 million people have pledged $932 million, funding 54,000 creative projects. Thousands of creative projects are raising funds on Kickstarter right now.

Our mission is to help bring creative projects to life.

We’re an independent, 70-person company, based in New York City’s Lower East Side. We spend our time making Kickstarter a little bit better every day, answering questions from backers and creators, and finding new projects to share. If a project is successfully funded, we apply a 5% fee to the funds collected.

We believe that creative projects make for a better world, and we’re thrilled to help support new ones. Building a community of backers around an idea is an amazing way to make something new.

For Hope And Compassion

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Albert Einstein

A Quote For Hope

“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”

Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
