Maine’s Adoption of Physician-Assisted Suicide Accelerates an Ominous Trend | The Heritage Foundation

When physician-assisted suicide is an option, there are fewer incentives to pursue ethical alternatives in end-of-life care. Physician-assisted suicide is not just a threat to individual patients. It is like Pandora’s Box: Once it’s open, it’s nearly impossible to contain its negative effects. Once our culture grants the premise of physician-assisted suicide—that some lives are more valuable than others—we begin our descent down a slippery slope. Other countries that have legalized physician-assisted suicide paint a dreary picture.

Infrasound: A Growing Liability for Wind Power - Master Resource

Infrasound: A Growing Liability for Wind Power - Master Resource
More than just audible sound, grinding, whomping, blade pass whooshes, an ever-present hum, industrial wind turbines have a silent, below audible impact. It is not like a day contamination/harm at work where people can go home at night for relief. With industrial wind projects literally engulfing homes and rural areas, there is little or no escape.
Wind turbines appear to be at the apex of producing human discomfort, annoyance, and harm. 
See the source imageIn particular, infrasound and low-frequency noise(ILFN) harm because of impacts unique to this concoction of noise...
Curt Devlin, of Fairhaven Mass., writes about wind turbines, and the right to be free from “unwanted experimentation”:
“This (the taking of profits) is why the global wind industry has strategically and systematically sought to silence wind turbine hosts and neighbors with property buy-outs and non-disclosure agreements. Undoubtedly, this is also why they and those who support them have publicly targeted acoustic engineers, health practitioners, and public health experts who have attempted to expose this truth in accordance with their canons of professional ethics. This industry subjects legitimate science to ridicule, its authors to character assassination, and its sleepless victims to blame and aspersions of mental defect. All of this is done to cloak conscious criminal cruelty in the name of unbridled greed.”
With zero societal, economic, or environmental benefits, and irreparable harm of every kind, it is time to talk disarmament, even reparation. And greens supporting wind power must let bygones be bygones and check their premises. Wind turbine energy, government-enabled, is the worst kind of energy."

  • 30 million of Bambi's buddies are on the loose in the U.S., causing crop damage and car accidents. Markets can help.

"...By 1900, the white-tailed deer population in the United States had plummeted to 500,000. 
Now there are perhaps 30 million roaming our continent, where they trample crops, pick over gardens, and bound across highways. 
Every year, deer and their ilk are involved in more than a million vehicle collisions, causing dozens of fatalities and costing billions of dollars.
...There are many exceptions beyond furs, including hides and meat from alligators, wild seafood, and numerous imported products. 
So while you can wear a beaver felt hat, buy a wallet made from American alligator leather, or eat Pacific yellowfin tuna, you won't find wild venison at a U.S. grocery store. 
(Hunters can give meat to friends or donate it to charities, but it remains illegal to sell wild game in most states. If you find venison at a supermarket or restaurant, it's probably farm-raised red deer from New Zealand.)
Legal markets for venison might not solve deer population problems entirely, but they could be a tool to align incentives better and help fund culls..."

Juneteenth: Our Other Independence Day | History | Smithsonian:
  • Two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation, American slavery came to an end and a celebration of freedom was born
See the source image"America’s birthday is fast approaching. 
But let’s not wait for July 4 to light the fireworks. 
...Juneteenth falls on June 19 each year. 
It is a holiday whose history was hidden for much of the last century. 
But as the nation now observes the 150th anniversary of the Civil War’s onset, it is a holiday worth recognizing. 
In essence, Juneteenth marks what is arguably the most significant event in American history after independence itself—the eradication of American slavery.
...This year, let’s remember Juneteenth, the holiday that doesn’t mark a document, a battle, a birthday or a national tragedy, but the fundamental promise of America being more completely realized—the day on which Thomas Jefferson’s rousing rhetoric finally rang true throughout America, for all Americans."

#1 This day 1974-----Paper Lace - Billy don't be a Hero 1974

When and Why Golden Geese Take Wing

When and Why Golden Geese Take Wing
"My friend Lynn Chu has boiled down the basis for a just, prosperous society:
“It is very easy to spend other people's money, thus eliminating all of the vital discrimination about the devils in the details which are knowable only at the level of the individual. This is the main justification for the protection of individual liberty against autocracy other than the clarity of the moral imperative of human rights as the privileges and immunities of the individual in society.”
When Great Britain turned over Hong Kong at the expiration of its lease, the Chinese government promised to leave its democratic institutions and law alone. 
Bit by bit, that promise has been eroded until  recently China pressured the local authorities to agree to an extradition treaty that would allow them to extradite from the former colony and try in China anyone, even someone merely transiting through its airport.
Day after day the residents in the millions resisted, marching en masse through the streets, closing down schools and shops as employers allowed workers leave to work at home and demonstrate...
...Indeed, by several accounts, faced with  the threat of Chinese tyranny, capital has already been fleeing the colony for elsewhere. 
Physical security and rule of law matter. 
And an independent and fair judicial system.
One tycoon, who considers himself potentially politically exposed, has started shifting more than $100 million from a local Citibank account to a Citibank account in Singapore, according to an adviser involved in the transactions. 
“It’s started. We’re hearing others are doing it, too, but no-one is going to go on parade that they are leaving,” the adviser said. “The fear is that the bar is coming right down on Beijing’s ability to get your assets in Hong Kong. Singapore is the favored destination.”..
The people who took to the streets in protest surely understand what China and Democratic state legislatures like those in California, New York, and Illinois do not: 
Capital is attracted to and invested in those places where the laws are fair and protect people and property, and where government overreach and exorbitant taxes are in check..."

Trump’s Mexican-tariff move was a true victory

Trump’s Mexican-tariff move was a true victory:

Image result for flickr commons images president trumpPresident Trump’s detractors are trying to play down the significance of the US-Mexico immigration deal, saying it is largely comprised of actions that Mexico had already agreed to many months ago.
Trump defends tariff threat against Mexico, calls it 'beautiful thing'
Nice try. If Mexico had truly agreed to implement many of these measures in December, then why had they not been implemented six months later? As even Mexican officials acknowledge, it was Trump’s threat of tariffs that forced Mexico’s hand. In announcing the deal, a relieved Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said the “most important thing is that they didn’t apply tariffs and we didn’t experience an economic slowdown.”
The fact is, Trump bucked Republicans on Capitol Hill and even many of his own advisers, and used the threat of tariffs to get Mexico to act — and it worked.

Image result for flickr commons images Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker But Illinois’ legislation is inherently worse. According to a previous report by Live Action News’ Cassy Fiano-Chesser, the two bills introduced by Illinois lawmakers would “make the state’s abortion laws even more extreme than New York’s”:
HB 2495 and would virtually eliminate all protections for preborn children, allow infanticide, remove conscience protection laws for health care workers, allow taxpayer funding for abortion, and more. HB 2467 would repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act of 1995, making it so that minors can obtain abortions without parental notification. The bills are so extreme that thousands of citizens flooded the Illinois state capitol building in protest….
The bill also repeals the state’s ban on partial-birth abortion. One nurse, after witnessing a D&X partial-birth abortion in the 1990’s, said:

Given that Al Gore is so green and all, it struck many people that buying into the Big Oil-drenched deal might be somewhat hypocritical for someone who for years has inveighed against dreaded fossil-fueled global warming. 
Yup, this is the very same Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. who said, regarding the proposed Keystone XL pipeline: “there is no such thing as ethical oil”, there’s “only dirty oil and dirtier oil”.
