Swimming trunks! Pair of frantic adult elephants save a calf from drowning in an incredible display of teamwork
Post Date: 2017-06-19 19:00:09 by cranky
A pair of frantic adult elephants saved a drowning calf in an incredible display of teamwork by the gentle giants. The youngster had been standing at the side of a large pool in its enclosure in Grand Park Zoo in Seoul, South Korea, with one of the adult elephants when it slipped and fell into the water. The stunned adult panicked as it watched the infant struggle to keep its mouth and trunk above the surface. But help arrived when a second adult, who had heard the commotion, came rushing to the side of the pool. The pair of adults seemed to communicate silently and decided they would only be able to reach the youngster if they entered the water from the shallow end of the pool. ...
Trump's Dangerous Anti-Libertarian Nationalism
Post Date: 2017-03-01 22:06:53 by Gatlin
Promises to cut domestic regulations or shake up the system do not a tolerable libertarian make. Trump is indeed a major threat to core libertarian values. Ask Ludwig Von Mises. President Donald Trump has signed an executive order claiming that in the future the total number of federal regulations will shrink, via the elimination of two regulations for every new one. He has nominated an FCC chief and a department of education chief who advocate choice-enhancing changes in the way their agencies run. He says he's a hardcore Second Amendment supporter (although he also supports taking away the right to bear arms based on mere suspicion). He's offered up a Supreme Court justice ...

How to Test Gold & Silver at Home: 5 Proven Bullion Testing Methods
Post Date: 2017-01-16 16:19:45 by srp1598
Just about all bullion investors worry about counterfeits. Those concerns are magnified when someone is buying for the first time. Stories about fake coins from Asia and gold bars drilled and filled with Tungsten have been in the headlines recently. But the truth is, counterfeiting is just about as old as the concept of money itself. Before diving into all the ways that fakes can be detected, the first and best protection is to work with a reputable and knowledgeable dealer such as Money Metals Exchange. Recently voted "Best in the USA," Money Metals has high quality control and internal screening standards, plus it stands behind the metals that it sells to customers. ...

Post Date: 2016-11-15 14:33:35 by Willie Green
A man punched a woman in the face at a popular French restaurant in Brooklyn after she expressed disappointment about the election of President-elect Donald Trump, according to reports from restaurant staff and witnesses. On Saturday night, a 49-year-old woman who has not been publicly identified was at Bar Tabac in Boerum Hill with a female friend. According to Jonas Leon, the manager who was working that night, the two women were discussing the outcome of the election when a man at a nearby table got into an argument with them. The man asked the manager to kick the women out of the restaurant. Instead, Leon moved the man and his dining companion to another table. The man paid for his ...

Team Trump is already filled with Washington insiders
Post Date: 2016-11-11 06:21:48 by Willie Green
Washington (CNN) To shape his administration, President-elect Donald Trump is drawing squarely from the "swamp" he has pledged to drain. Trump's transition team is staffed with long-time Washington experts and lobbyists from K Street, think tanks and political offices. It's a far cry from Trump's campaign, which ended only Tuesday night, and message that he would "drain the swamp" in Washington. He has advocated congressional term limits and proposed a "five-point plan for ethics reform" that included strengthening restrictions on lobbying, including five-year bans for members and staff of the executive branch and Congress from lobbying, and ...
Trump Could Tap Rudy & Newt for Cabinet Positions
Post Date: 2016-11-08 11:26:16 by Willie Green
Donald Trump, if hes elected, could name former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich to his cabinet, according to a report. NBC News, citing unnamed campaign advisers, reported that Gingrich could be the secretary of state and Giuliani could be named attorney general. Other names considered are retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn for defense secretary and Reince Priebus, the current RNC chairman, as Trumps chief of staff. Theyre thinking, We need to find that balance between someone who knows how Washington works and someone who shakes things up,' the senior campaign adviser told the broadcaster. Its unclear if Priebus is interested ...
Yes, Gary Johnson Could Make It Into the Debates. Here's How. (A step-by-step guide)
Post Date: 2016-07-01 17:51:23 by hondo68
A step-by-step guide to how the Libertarian Party nominee might make it onstage. Brian Cahn/ZUMA Press/Newscom Fifteen percent is the magic number Libertarian presidential candidate and former governor Gary Johnson needs to reach to earn his voice in the 2016 election. By capturing the support of 15 percent of voters in national public opinion polls, Johnson could join the major party's presidential candidates on the primetime debate stage. With both Democratic and Republican presidential candidates disliked at historic levels and a rising share of political independents frustrated with the two major parties, this is the year a third-party candidate like Johnson has a realistic chance ...
These Numbers Say A Third Party Can Win The Presidency
Post Date: 2016-05-16 15:11:12 by hondo68
You dont need a majority, or even a plurality, of electors to win the presidency. Let me explain. For those who were serious about their Never Trump hashtags (or who would have been if they were on Twitter), its time to start rallying for a third-party candidate for the 2016 election. A third-party candidate isnt just a protest against the system, but a viable chance at sparing the country the disaster that would be a Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton presidency.The Historical Precedent for a Third Party Abraham Lincoln (whose accomplishments seem to be completely unknown to the Republican nominee) would take umbrage with those who say a third party can never win. This ...
Americans haven’t gotten a raise in 16 years
Post Date: 2016-04-30 20:03:13 by Justified
Mark Twain is credited with saying figures dont lie, but liars figure. If he were around today Twains quote might go something like this: Figures do lie, and liars figure out how to make people believe them. Granted, not as catchy. But my quote goes a long way toward explaining something that is bothering many political pundits today. President Obama whined last week that hes not getting enough credit for the economy. Democrats are besides themselves wondering why Americans are so angry that they might be willing to elect Donald Trump president when the official unemployment rate is only 5%, oil prices are near their lowest level in a decade and ...

Supermom puts kids to bed

An Ontario mom's struggle to get her two-year-old daughter and baby triplets dressed for bed has been seen by millions around the world. Dan Gibson of Cambridge, Ont., took the time-lapse video of mom Corrie trying to dress all four squirming kids. It now has more than 46 million views on their Facebook page, The Baby Gang. Dan says that normally both parents get the job done, but they thought taking a movie of Corrie doing it alone would be fun. The process of wrangling all the kids and getting them into their sleepers took about six minutes, but the time-lapsed version runs about two minutes long. Dan said the response ...
Ben Carson Can’t Stop Talking About His Laundry

I dont just throw something in the garbage and buy a new suit. Four days after a disappointing fourth-place finish in Iowa, former neurosurgeon Ben Carson is still struggling to defend a perplexing decision to abandon the state Monday night, while the Republican caucuses were still ongoing, to fly home to Florida to rest and do laundry. Well, also you know, I heard people saying, What's wrong with Carson? They have clothes in New Hampshire. He can go and buy some more suits and some more shirts, Carson said during an interview Friday on The View, according to Politico. Well, see, thats not the way I grew up. I grew up to ...
Kansas: Feigned Concern Does Not Justify Traffic Stop
Post Date: 2015-12-16 10:54:46 by Deckard
Kansas Court of Appeals says cops cannot stop cars by pretending to be concerned about the welfare of the driver.Police must not pretend to "help" motorists in order to write a ticket or make an arrest, the state Court of Appeals said Friday. A three-judge panel used the case of Carlos Eduardo Martinez Morales to send a message to law enforcement by affirming a lower court judge's decision to set Morales free.It was around 2:30 in the morning on November 22, 2014 when Reno County Sheriff's Department Deputy Travis Vogt spotted Morales parked on the side of K-96 highway. The lawman's suspicions were aroused because it was a rural area and the car's lights were on. ...

At the intersections of U.S. Highways 40 and 41, and off Interstate 70, you find yourself in Vigo County, with its 108,000 residents and its ho-hum county seat, Terre Haute, situated along the Wabash River.

Have a Happy, Politics-Free Thanksgiving
Post Date: 2015-11-25 12:21:08 by no gnu taxes
Many people naturally assume that since I work in political journalism, I must breathe, drink and eat politics 24/7/365 -- including on the Thanksgiving holiday. The thought of it gives me indigestion. Self-absorbed creatures who have no life outside the Beltway world are the most tiresome ogres. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest advised Americans "sitting around the Thanksgiving table" to talk about gun control. The left-wing National Memo published "5 Things To Tell Your Republican relatives at Thanksgiving." And The New York Times served up its own version of "How to Talk to Your Relatives About Politics at Thanksgiving," stuffed with poll data and ...
The Council on Foreign Relations:What It Will Take to Defeat ISIS
Post Date: 2015-11-20 23:08:29 by A K A Stone
What It Will Take to Defeat ISIS To defeat ISIS, the president needs to dispatch more aircraft, military advisors, and special operations forces, while loosening the restrictions under which they operate. The president also needs to do a better job of mobilizing support from Sunnis in Iraq and Syria, as well as from Turkey, by showing that he is intent on deposing not only ISIS but also the equally murderous Alawite regime in Damascus. Specific steps include: Intensify air strikes. So far, the U.S. bombing campaign against ISIS has been remarkably restrained, as revealed by a comparison with the strikes against the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan after 9/11. When the Taliban lost ...
Let’s All Laugh As Liberalism Commits Ritual Suicide On Campus
Post Date: 2015-11-18 15:44:09 by no gnu taxes
Please don't tell the students at University of Missouri and Yale and all the other throbbing pustules of academia to stop their insanity. Instead, encourage and provoke them to turn the turmoil up to 11, a number most of these students cant count to without taking off their Nikes. No, we want the campuses to echo with the whiny cries of the Children of the Safe Space Revolution. And we will sit back and point and laugh as the weak-willed, spineless liberal losers of academia abase themselves before their whimpering student bodies. This is just great. As Napoleon observed, never interrupt your enemy while he's making a mistake. Now, mentioning Napoleon probably a ...
What Must Be Done - Four Ways to Build a Free Society
Post Date: 2015-11-13 17:39:26 by hondo68
This article is adapted from a talk delivered at this past weekend's Mises Circle event in Phoenix.The topic of our symposium this morning is What Must Be Done, which originally was the title of a talk given by Dr. Hans-Hermann Hoppe at a Mises Institute conference in 1997. Hoppe posed his title as a declarative, but it's also the question we all wrestle with as libertarians in a world so dominated by the state and its apologists.And its a question we hear time and time again at the Mises Institute: What can we do to fight back against government? We all understand the problem, but what is the solution? What can we do in the current environment to help ...

9 Phrases Smart People Never Use In Conversation

Weve all said things that people interpreted much differently than we thought they would. These seemingly benign comments lead to the awful feeling that only comes when youve planted your foot firmly into your mouth. Verbal slip-ups often occur because we say things without knowledge of the subtle implications they carry. Understanding these implications requires social awarenessthe ability to pick up on the emotions and experiences of other people. TalentSmart has tested the emotional intelligence (EQ) of more than a million people and discovered that social awareness is a skill in which many of us are lacking.

Jeb Bush Claims That Creating Encryption Harms America
Post Date: 2015-08-21 08:36:08 by Deckard
from the wanna-try-that-one-again? dept Sometimes you have to wonder if the various political candidates are trying to lose the knowledgeable techie vote. Chris Christie has been strongly pro-surveillance, and it's not hard to guess where he would come down on the whole "backdooring encryption" debate. However, few of the other candidates have been directly asked about that -- though that may be changing. Jeb Bush has now stated that he's against encryption, because, apparently it harms America. If you create encryption, it makes it harder for the American government to do its jobwhile protecting civil libertiesto make sure that evildoers arent in ...
