Standard & Poor’s President Ousted?

Monday, August 22, 2011 21:49 4 Comments

S&P’s President, Deven Sharma, is stepping down. It is written that “Mr. Sharma was leaving the firm to pursue other opportunities, the person familiar with the matter said, without elaborating.” So the Indian who brought the U.S. to its knees is paying the price. That happened quicker than expected.

Government Protects “the Children” From Parents and Raw Milk

Monday, August 22, 2011 20:26 5 Comments

This dumbed-down piece on the website Real Raw Milk Facts is one of the most inept propaganda pieces I have ever seen making the case against raw milk. The author of the piece, Richard Raymond, invokes hyperbolic history and distorted facts to make the case that, under no instance, should any person be able to [...]

The Atlantic on Food Freedom and Food Safety

Sunday, August 21, 2011 11:00 No Comments

The Atlantic does a good job of covering the Rawesome food club raid. Rawesome was a private, voluntary cooperative of consenting members who take responsibility for any potential risks. (“Private” and “voluntary” being key words.) Rawesome members even signed waivers before becoming a food club member. With all of the agencies involved (USDA, FDA, LA County Sheriff, CDC) [...]

Ron Paul Challenges Candidates to a Bike Race

Sunday, August 21, 2011 7:28 1 Comment

In Houston, in the 100-degree heat with 100% humidity. This is a rad challenge on the part of Ron Paul. It comes in response to the constant obsession, on the part of the media and Ron’s begrudging competitors, with Ron Paul’s “age.” Age is only the number of years a person has lived – it [...]
