Random Commentary for 15 June 2010

Filed under: Random Shots — mikewb1971 @ 2:07 AM (02:07)

  1. The Intelligence2 Debate — Stephen Fry (Unedited)
  2. Re: Spill Response Not About Oil, But Snake Oil

    Why not plug the leaking hole with Federal Reserve Notes and Treasury securities? The Obamanoids are going to print them by the dumptruck-full anyway; we might as well put them to good use.

  3. Re: Changing New Mexico’s Culture of Corruption — New Mexico Liberty / New Mexico Watchdog

    Point 3-A — In addition to giving more resources to the State Auditor, the Open Meetings Act needs to be beefed up to open conference committees in the Legislature, as well as explicitly allowing citizens to take their own camcorders into any session of the Legislature. If the legislators don’t like that, that’s too bad — while they’re in session, any photon bouncing off of them goes into the public domain. Same goes for any sound vibration coming from their person. If they don’t want to go on record, they shouldn’t run for election to public office.

  4. More on the abiotic theory of hydrocarbon generation

    Here’s the Theory for you to ponder true or nutty:
    More on the mystery of the origins of gas

  5. Re: Springfield XD pistol is “made in America”

    It’s actually made in Croatia and imported by Springfield Armory, Inc. But that’s OK — almost all innovation these days in handgun design has moved from America to central-eastern Europe. Which is NOT what I would expect, considering that almost all of these countries (Germany, Austria, etc.) have gun laws that make California’s look rather benign by comparison.

    The “XD” moniker is simply Springfield Armory Inc.’s marketing name for the HS2000
