Anarcho-Farmers

Tuesday, July 31, 2012 22:18 1 Comment

I’d like to think that all of those wonderful eco-agricultural/natural/anti-industrial food machine farmers performing local farm-to-table service ought to be called anarcho-farmers. Thanks to having the largest farmers’ market in North America, here in Detroit we have no shortage of truly (not imitation or branded) Amish goods; grass-fed and pastured meats from the local farms; urban, [...]

He was acquitted on chargesof brandishing a firearm and disturbing the peace. The amazing fact is that Sean is only eighteen years old. The Observer & Eccentric writes: Combs just graduated [...]

Recently, I was riding my Harley back home after a Friday jaunt, and I passed by a concert on the river in the town where I live. A Rod Stewart tribute band was playing, so I parked my bike and walked to the concert site, and I sat on the steep hillside with the rest [...]

Seat Belt Profit Center

According to a recent story (which was also noted in the Detroit News), the state of Michigan’s seat belt-o-rama netted the state some nice profit after the costs were borne by the federal government’s tax slaves. Essentially, you may have paid the state twice to screw you over: once to fund the mega-scam that was federally funded under [...]

An article from April 2012 Mail Online noted that a French Green Party MEP, Nicole Kiil-Nielson, had declared that women are more at risk from global warming than men. Women, claims Nicole Kiil-Nielsen, ‘consume more sustainably than men and show greater willingness to act to preserve the environment’ as they tend to organise household consumption and [...]

I usually don’t like a whole lot of Mitch Albom’s writings, but this column takes on a good topic: our medication nation. Albom writes: Here’s the mentality of our country now: If you have a problem, open a vial. Cholesterol rising? A pill for that. Can’t sleep? A pill for that. Feeling blue? A pill [...]

Is it any surprise that a team of researchers have found that compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs are a health hazard? “Despite their large energy savings, consumers should be careful when using compact fluorescent light bulbs,” said Professor Rafailovich. “Our research shows that it is best to avoid using them at close distances and that they [...]

Mass Monkey Rinse & Repeat

The financial news, along with Capitol Hill, has lots of comedy to offer up these days. Unfortunately, I have been a wee bit too busy to properly dissect it and comment here on my blog, or elsewhere.
