Naturally, in being a liberal Democrat, I can think of dozens – if not hundreds – of reasons why Romney should not be president, and I’m sure Republicans feel the same way about Obama. However, there are two items about Romney which are key elements and shows the type of man that Mitt is – which is definitely NOT POTUS-material. There is nothing that Obama has done which can hold a candle to Romney’s deceptive nature. If you have been keeping up with the news on Romney, I’m sure you can guess at least one of the two.
The ultimate dream of flight – soaring through the air, with total freedom in all three dimensions, not within a heavy and complicated machine but with only one’s body and sensations – a dream everybody had at least once in their life. “Jetman” made it real.
Reminiscent of the famous superman scene, Yves “Jetman” Rossy has flown in close formation with the Breitling Douglas DC-3 vintage aircraft, giving the passengers on board the unique experience to see the world’s first jet powered man in full flight.
Here is a great video mash-up created by the Symphony of Science in honor of the recent announcement today of the discovery of the Higgs boson, otherwise known as the God Particle.
“I think we have it,” said Rolf-Dieter Heuer, the director general of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research located in Geneva, Switzerland. The agency is home to the Large Hadron Collider, the immense particle accelerator that produced the new data by colliding protons. The findings were announced by two separate teams. Dr. Heuer called the discovery “a historic milestone.”
The first ever GAO (Government Accountability Office) audit of the Federal Reserve was carried out in the past few months due to the Ron Paul, Alan Grayson Amendment to the Dodd-Frank bill, which passed last year. Jim DeMint, a Republican Senator, and Bernie Sanders, an independent Senator, led the charge for a Federal Reserve audit in the Senate, but watered down the original language of the house bill(HR1207), so that a complete audit would not be carried out. Ben Bernanke (pictured to the left), Alan Greenspan, and various other bankers vehemently opposed the audit and lied to Congress about the effects an audit would have on markets. Nevertheless, the results of the first audit in the Federal Reserve’s nearly 100 year history were posted on Senator Sander’s webpage earlier this morning: http://sanders.senate.gov/newsroom/news/?id=9e2a4ea8-6e73-4be2-a753-62060dcbb3c3 More…
