Comment FCC approved GPS interference (Score 2) 325

Came across a couple of articles recently here and here specifically talking about GPS interference and "dead-zones".

Curious part, is that this technology is APPROVED by the FCC. The frequencies used by LightSquared (1525 MHz—1559 MHz) is just below the GPS frequencies (1559—1610 MHz). While it SHOULDN'T interfere, the power levels used by LightSquared is much higher than the signals from satellites.

From the fine article: "Some experts think that pumping water into the ground as part of the extraction process of natural gas could cause local seismic events. But the area hasn't been studied enough, they say, to know for sure."

Another story to gin up a way to stop energy production. I really hate this "do as I say - not as I do" attitude of the people who want to stop *United States* energy production.

Where's the outrage of Cuba's oil production? China's oil production? Venezuelan oil production?

... and the Muskegon County (Michigan) Prosecutor has insinuated (with no further evidence) that Emory actually wants to have sex with children and claims he 'victimized every single child in that classroom.'

Seems that the Prosecutor is projecting (with no further evidence) onto Emory. Hopefully the Prosecutor will get help and stay away from children, especially the most vulnerable, his. Boy this evidence thing just gets in the way.

Using this I saw a couple of family members that have yet to accept my friend invite. Guess I can remove them from my Christmas card list.

Comment Re:Beware, lawmakers: November is coming. (Score 2, Insightful) 2424

The Democrats ran on the platform of healthcare reforms. And they won! By a sizeable margin! This is what we call a mandate.

Yes they did run on a platform of "healthcare" reform. At the same time, over 60% of people did NOT want THIS legislation to become law. THAT is a mandate, and the Democrats did not listen to their constituency ... there will be hell to pay in November.

Just watch the Senate get bogged down by the "reconciliation" bill that was passed by the House, it'll never get passed as-is, and the House Democrats will be left out to hang.

On one hand we have thousands of climatologists from dozens of countries armed with super computers and the resources of government. They tell us we have a problem.

Yes, yes they do tell us we have a problem. At the same time, they ask or demand more funding to study it further.

Arguing against them are a bunch of people, most of whom are not climatologists or even scientists, who do not have super computers or any data of their own. They argue that there is a worldwide conspiracy to falsify data.

EXACTLY. These same "scientists" refuse to give out the raw data, along with any information about how they're massaging the data. In fact, many "studies" aren't even based on data, just thoughts and conjecture. Some of these same scientists have recently done an about-face and have said that there has been INSIGNIFICANT WARMING for the past 15 years. So now, even Phil Jones has "come clean" about the information.

Thousands of scientists from Europe, Asia, Australasia and the Americas all working in harmony to defraud the world, to drive up taxes and bring down civilisation - all led by the anti-christ Al Gore.

Yep ... although anti-christ is a little strong ... I would say "useful idiot". Al is as much a scientist as those not buying the "global warming" fraud. Although he does stand to make billions from continuing "global warming". That alone should cause red flags to be raised by ANY believer in "global warming".

Think about who you are siding with and why you believe in what you believe.

I prefer not to drink the kool-aid.
