10 Things Sarah Palin Would Have Done If She Did Become President

old but funny

List of X

Sarah Palin has finally made an official announcement that she will not be running for President in 2012, although she may still secretly be hoping to pick up a Vice Presidential nomination to pair up with another sufficiently old and unhealthy candidate.  So imagining for a minute that Sarah did run and did win the 2012 elections, these would be the things she would have done as the President of the United States.

1.  Quit the job after 2 years to concentrate on her family.  The concentration on her family would involve Fox News, Dancing With The Stars, going on book tours, and starring in a C-SPAN reality show “Sara Palin‘s White House”.

2.  Install a telescope so she would not only see Russia from her house, but also see what Vladimir Putin is up to.  Then put up some nice American flag curtains so that Putin could…

Summer is here! …well almost anyway. In the Pacific Northwest sometimes it is just too soon to tell! We get teased with a little bit of sunshine only to have to dig out our rain jackets the following day. Regardless of the weather, it’s been a long 6 months since the beginning of the year. We think it’s about time you treat yourself to some tasty adult beverages as the kids are out of school and the sun peaks out.  Enjoy!!

Huffington Post: Opinion: Robert Kuttner: Thinking About the Government: The Real Differences Between Liberals and Conservatives

FRS FreeStates Plus

The Huffington Post: Opinion- Robert Kuttner- Thinking About the Government.

If you want to know what the real difference between real Liberals such as myself the real thing. A real Liberal not someone who would be called a Socialist or Social-Democrat in any other developed country in the West. But an actual Liberal and a real Barry Goldwater get big government out of my wallet and bedroom Conservative. The real difference is about the role of government, we both believe in government and both believe that there is a role for. Government in a Liberal Democracy that’s not an Anarchy and we both even believe in limited government. We just differ on what government should be doing but we both agree on what the number one role of. Government that it’s there to protect our freedom, protect us from people who would harm us. Not try to protect us…

Stephen Harper’s Science

The cancellation of the Experimental Lakes Program and the Harper approach to climate change has generated a lot of talk about whether Stephen Harper and the Conservatives are anti-evidence and anti-science.

They are “anti” looking for problems they do not want to fix, but they are not anti-science. Irrespective of what you think of Harper, he has made some tough decisions on government-funded science that have been needed for years, and will help address a critical and chronic problem Canada has in converting R&D to commercial benefit.  Restructuring the National Research Council, while tough on some bureaucrats, will position Canada better in a technology driven global economy.  I wish he was more generous with environmental technology (for their commercial potential that he is missing) but his choices are not bad (eg genomics).

This said, the anti-science claim does have merit.  Harper is ruthless in shutting down science that risks finding problems he does not  want to address.  

There is a belief in right wing politics – if you fund environmental science you will find problems you don’t want to find – the best way to fix air and water pollution is to stop looking for it.

The reason Harper is defunding experimental lakes, climate science and a range of other environmental and fisheries science is that he just does not want to address problems he knows will be found.  

This head-in-sand mentality is indefensible. It makes him look backward in comparison to more enlightened world leaders who are prepared to address environmental challenges on the facts – the science. They accept the science and they have adult conversations on the economic and social trade-offs required to address them. To be clear, this may lead to decisions to do nothing, because the costs or the disruption is too great. But they are honest discussions based on real information and tradeoffs.

 

So Harper’s record on science? He is certainly not anti science or evidence. He uses both extensively when there is an issue he wants to address. What Harper has shown, however, is that he will use any tactics necessary, no matter how dishonest of manipulative, to avoid dealing with issues his base doesn’t want him to deal with. The environment is, unfortunately, one of the victims of this politicization.

The 5 Healthiest Kinds of Fish

Dangerous Lee

Fish should be a regular part of your diet because it is one of the best foods that you can eat. However, you should keep in mind that some types of fish are healthier than others. Below are some of the healthiest types of fish that you can eat:

Albacore Tuna

Albacore Tuna is either pole or troll-caught from British Columbia or the United States.

There have been concerns raised about the high mercury content of tuna, but Albacore tuna has a lower mercury content than many other types of tuna. They also have a higher omega 3 fatty acid content. Omega 3 fatty acids are a group of healthy fats that help reduce the risk of heart disease. They also help promote a healthy brain, skin and hair. It is estimated that one serving of tuna contains 300 mg of omega 3 fatty acids. Canned tuna can be put…
