Whatever Happened to "Green Jobs"? - Moher Jones Magazine, by Chris Mooney Posted By: Scottyboy- Mon, 08 51 2013 11:51:58 GMT If you watched President Obama´s major speech on climate change, you may have noticed a recurrent phrase: "our children." The president said the word "children" fifteen separate times in the speech. He also spoke repeatedly about "future generations" and how a sweltering planet imperils them. The threat of climate itself, meanwhile, garnered considerable scientific detail in the speech, replete with references to dangerous and destructive impacts that are already occurring-from rising seas to parched land and torched forests. "I refuse to condemn your generation and future generations to a planet that´s beyond fixing," the president said.

Why Zimmerman's Motion for Acquittal Should Have Been Granted - Legal Insurrection, by Andrew Branca Posted By: StormCnter- Mon, 08 19 2013 10:19:34 GMT Immediately following the close of the State's case on Friday, Mark O'Mara, the lawyer leading George Zimmerman's defense team, stood before Judge Nelson and made his oral motion for a judgment of acquittal for his client (a parallel written motion was also submitted to the Court). The motion was well'reasoned, and strongly founded on Florida's case law. It was also doomed to fail before a Judge who has consistently denied reasonable defense motions out of hand, while rubber'stamping motions by the State that bear not the slightest relevancy to the facts of this case. Details matter in the law,

Edward Snowden's Parasites: Evo Morales, Julian Assange & More - Daily Beast, by Michael Moynihan Posted By: PageTurner- Mon, 08 50 2013 07:50:09 GMT I know, I know. We aren't supposed to pay attention to Edward Snowden, the NSA leaker doing an uncanny Sir Alfred Mehran impression at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport. It's the drip, drip, drip of purloined documents that counts. But a story this big, this consequential, needs a dramatis personae of dramatic people. So let's offer Snowden a brief respite from the spotlight, pretend his motives are either pure or of little consequence, and instead turn our gaze toward those grandstanding politicians and activists demanding that our hero be left alone and all attention refocused on them.

ACA Delay May Hurt, Not Help, Dems in 2014
Free Republic - O-B-A-M-A-C-A-R-E, the president's signature first-term legislative achievement, may spell another round of political trouble for many Democrats, who have some new explaining to do, thanks to the White House. Whether employers are eagerly sidestepping a key provision for another year (as many learned they would after a concession Tuesday night from President Obama) or House Republicans persist in voting to repeal the whole law (which they’ve done nearly 40 times), it’s clear the Affordable Care Act continues to exist under a cloud more than two years after its enactment. “This is a setback for the administration and for Democrats,” Jim...

ObamaCare on Hold
Real Clear Politics -  Jack Kelly, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The Obama administration plans to delay for a year implementation of the "employer mandate" provision of Obamacare. It requires companies with 50 or more full-time employees to provide them with health insurance or pay a fine of $2,000 per worker.Obamacare was supposed to go fully into effect on Jan. 1, 2014, and some experts think delaying implementation of the employer mandate violates the law."The IRS not enforcing Section 1513 is like a policeman who patrols a stretch of road who says for the next year, he won't issue any speeding tickets," wrote

Cheap homes proves costly in Detroit
World Net Daily - 

(Reuters) – The solid red brick house on a block of similar homes in Northwest Detroit sounds like a steal at $3,728.

But in many ways, it’s a lemon.

The house, sold at an auction last fall, sits at the edge of Detroit’s infamous urban blight. And scrap thieves, or “strippers,” have taken anything of value, including the kitchen sink and metal pipes, requiring repairs of up to $15,000.

20% pay cut for defense workers
World Net Daily - 

(CNNMONEY.COM) Starting Monday, 650,000 defense employees will be on furlough.

As part of the sequester, or federal spending cuts, that are currently underway, civilian defense workers will be forced to take one unpaid day off each week, leading to a 20% reduction in their pay through Sept. 21.

Some people have made light of the sequester because its effect has gone relatively unnoticed by the public so far. However, the Pentagon is the largest federal employer, with a budget of $680 billion. Even thoughdefense isn’t the first agency to start furloughing workers, it is the largest in terms of the sheer number of workers that will be hit by the $85 billion in federal spending cuts that kicked in on March 1.

Why Venezuela Offers Asylum to Snowden - Wall Street Journal, by Anastasia O´Grady Posted By: Desert Fox- Mon, 08 49 2013 01:49:59 GMT Edward Snowden, the former U.S. government contractor wanted for leaking sensitive national intelligence, is a victim of "persecution" by "the world´s most powerful empire," Venezuelan President Nicólas Maduro said on Friday. Mr. Maduro offered asylum to the fugitive, who was running out of prospects. Nicaragua and Bolivia have chimed in with similar offers. What plans are afoot to spirit Mr. Snowden from his Moscow airport sanctuary-assuming he accepts refuge in Latin America-are of course secret. Mr. Maduro would have us believe that his gesture is a demonstration of Venezuela´s commitment to free speech and its fierce opposition to withholding information
