where is the air carrying the sound - or is there a new definition of "sound of the newer kind"?
The whole functioning mechanism here is a question of supply and demand with heavily restricting supply and creating profit.
Every human lately devoid of fur is essentially naked, so there is an immense supply of nakedness.
Now, to create this market, supply is restricted, in many countries by law and heavily penalized, often with death penalty.
With those restrictions the market value of relatively few individuals showing few and then suddenly more of their skin create sensation and revenue.
In essence, who should care at all since once the restricted masses will recognize all this is just an illusion because everyone has it, this market will collapse.
So, be careful not to invest in any of this scam.
with Ebola control is health care infra-structure in affected countries. A far cry from what would be necessary to contain further spread. There was one report on a radio station that there are like 10 doctors in a whole country (Africa, forgot the name).
Even if you have the best drug available defeating the virus in a day, it won't help at all under those circumstances - spread by body fluids from infected individuals.
The outcome can only be guessed...
Even less movement possible in office environment. Soon there will be robots to deliver coffee and spoon-feed office workers...
Energy transport line losses across 1/2 continent won't do any good and there is no rolling sunshine across this continent, not even talking about "rolling" winds and tides always available.
So, what's the real game here with getting the prudent and necessary things done?
Arguments are researched for impact - example: The argument "jobs endangered" comes up again and again, if there is a demand for change. Any decision-maker does the right thing s/he is paid for....
At least initially: Video not available, click here to see why (or similar) - this BS happens often.
Now it works.
- Jobs in danger
- Jobs created
Look who is talking and who is supporting (bribing) them.
Applies to all politicians in the US where the supreme court is smoking what? - pot, no cannot be, they would be more sensible.
I have - they should be e-liminated, not limited.
Ok. Fine. That works too. But you're missing the point.
The issue I have with this entire thing is they want to use *my* tax money to buy ads for politicians I don't support.
Your point: Well, that has been tried, reducing tax you pay being used for stuff you don't like - try holding back the % used for war spending if you don't like it and see what happens. Looks like a hassle.
The tax system and government should be trustworthy, apparently they are not. Why is a good question. Not sure who the bigger crooks - corporate or government head-hanchos and who is doing more harm to the greater part of a population?
With Lessing - let's see what happens if he can avoid the ego trip and big head from getting Step 1 and Step 2 in his game together and stick to his plans, it may fail or not. Maybe he comes from another angle with more smarts for the better of normal people. Crowd-sourcing and PAC may be new and disappointment is probably big in people about what is happening with no real remedy in sight. With the small amounts of $ 3 and $ 4 spending on campaigns - everyone seems to be doing it now and there is a limit to exploit this.
Maybe he makes written and public contracts with politicians to hold them liable on their promises or better have commitments they later stick to in order to get funded. Sure is better than the humble/mumble backroom stuff going on right now.
It will show.
I have no problem with laws *limiting* campaign donations
I have - they should be e-liminated, not limited. There will always be backdoors and workarounds.
Think the US Supreme Court with it's corporate-tinted philosophy would support that or the politicians cutting off their funding?
The system is purely money-driven, doubtful if the idea behind MAYDAY-PAC can change that, but worth a try.
If he's successful, he'll take tax money from you and 300 million others and give it to candidates running for office.
If he's unsuccessful, you'll be a sucker and we'll all be a lot better off.
If a functional democratic system treats every candidate the same way in supporting i. e. financing after a certain popularity threshold is reached, who would that entity be other than an entity of the governing system in place?
As it is currently in the US, it's a hotchpotch of corruption destroying the very foundation of democracy. Can't even guarantee voting integrity across the board when some goons thinking doing the right thing are turning the screws somewhere in secret.
As for your aversion of using tax money used - where do you think is all that corporate money coming from? Who gets bilked and taken to the cleaner so the coffers of the "higher ups" in the pyramid - corporations as persons or individuals are overflowing?
Whenever you pay something, someone is taking a cut from it - at least you have the sales tax written on your receipt and there you know what is taken out.
I am happy that I can see my sales tax in roads getting fixed, public places kept in order, traffic light functioning, police working with gangs to keep the violence in check etc.
If you want to call me a sucker, look in the mirror to see one!
Are they in any way successful in catching "terrorists"?
Hardly - maybe they caught one guy in - was it San Diego - to give money to some far away organization labeled as well, offensive/dangerous in some way (don't recall all details).
There was also a hearing and a lied number of 20-isch? was admitted but later debunked.
So - all in all, the tremendous snooping effort is not showing much result and essentially being a flop.
Remedy: Increase effort in more and more complex systems.
Otherwise, maybe it's just inner need for control, power and conditioned thinking which motivates and attracts humans to participate in this nonsense (religions come to mind following the same principle).
Actually a very dangerous route this is taking - thought control (if you THINK that, you are...) and modeled prediction of events based on secret procedures
US - the free country and people living there proud of all that freedom can't travel to this island?
Just be proud, don't read the small print and the world is OK.
Ah - don't forget to hang your flag out the frontyard.
Resources exist to be consumed. And consumed they will be, if not by this generation then by some future. By what right does this forgotten future seek to deny us our birthright? None I say! Let us take what is ours, chew and eat our fill.

How is water "irreplaceable"?
Oh yoi... once it's "harvested", sold, processed - how does it get put back and be available again?
Water aquifers, oil, coal, any mining "takings", helium and what else have you.. maybe some recycled to a degree but the original source is gone for good.
Another irreplaceable resource to exploit an make a buck!
