MOKPO, South Korea (AP) — The captain of the ferry that sank off South Korea, leaving more than 300 missing or dead, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of negligence and abandoning people in need. Two crew members also were taken into custody, including a rookie third mate who a prosecutor said was steering in challenging waters unfamiliar to her when the accident occurred. The number of confirmed dead rose to 32 when three bodies were found in the murky water near the ferry, said coast guard spokesman Kim Jae-in. Divers know at least some bodies remain inside the vessel, but they have been unable to get inside.

Comment on 5 Ways Nevada Rancher Militia Resembles Pakistan’s Taliban by JTMcPhee

The old “commons” worked, as well as it did, because of social controls that kept the greedy bastards from taking more than their share of grass and turves and gleanings. There seems to be yet another positive-feedback “fail” in play here, amplifying the over-taking by a few from the commons.

Of course, as pointed out by many, first the First People did what they did with the continent, then the forefathers of these nascent Mad Max types came, saw and took, then of course there were the railroads and the taking, theft really, of huge swathes of what was thought to be everyone’s “heritage,” and of course you have all the Kochers and the dudes that find the seams and bribe-workable pathways to doing stuff like not paying even the pittance for leaseholds and extraction values for all that oil and gas and uranium and other stuff that’s on what was sort of supposed to be like a big Commons for all Americans. At least those dudes in suits and string ties and expensive cowboy boots make a show of faux legitimacy by “following the letter of the law,” law that they have carefully lobbied into existence over decades, centuries even. Stuff like this: “Vanishing Lake Michigan Sand Dunes: Threats from Mining.” link to greatlakes.org

Use it all up, folks — Jesus is coming back Real Soon, riding a horse of flame and brandishing the Covenant, the Sword with the Arm of the Lord… And he is going to be REALLY pissed if you haven’t used it all up yet, the whole planet over which you tell yourselves he gave you “Dominion…”

Comment on Pictures Don’t Lie: Refuting #there_was_no_Palestine by Alexander Davis

April 19th, 2014 No comments

Although Jews made up just one third of the population of Palestine, the UN partition plan allotted them 55% of the country, and the Arabs’ views were not considered, even though self-determination is a UN principle. Zionists cynically accepted the partition but their plan to expand farther and ethnically cleanse out Palestinians was well known. Using Jewish terror groups, Ben Gurion started ethnic cleansing in 1947 and in 6 months there were 750,000 refugees. Arab armies tried to come to the rescue but were no match for the Western-armed Israelis. The UN realized the partition was a mistake and sent UN mediator Count Bernadotte to devise a new plan, but a Jewish terror group assassinated him. Then in 1967 Israel started the land-grabbing Six Day War and murdered our sailors on our intel ship the USS Liberty who were watching in international waters.

U.S. further delays final decision on Keystone XL pipeline

April 18th, 2014 No comments

A TransCanada Keystone Pipeline pump station operates outside Steele City, NebraskaBy Patrick Rucker WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Obama administration further delayed its decision on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline project on Friday, with no conclusion now likely until after the U.S. mid-term elections in November. President Barack Obama has said he will have the final say on whether to allow the pipeline connecting Canada's oil sands region to Texas refiners, and several government agencies had been given until May to weigh in. But the State Department said on Friday it was extending that agency comment period, citing a need to wait until the Nebraska Supreme Court settles a dispute over what path the $5.4 billion TransCanada Corp project should take. "That pipeline route is central to the environmental analysis for the project and if there are changes to the route it could have implications," a senior State Department official told reporters.
