For a variety of inter-related cultural, organizational, and political reasons, progress in climate science and the actual solution of scientific problems in this field have moved at a much slower rate than would normally be possible. Not all these factors are unique to climate science, but the heavy influence of politics has served to amplify the role of the other factors. By cultural factors, I primarily refer to the… Continue

I live in Minnesota, was home all evening with my wife at my side and don't own a gun, but...
How about tasering skateboarding kids?
Tasering old ladies, like 74 year old ladies?
Tasering people with expired tags?
Tasering people with expired auto registration?
Tasering people without auto insurance?
How about murdering innocent civilians?
Shooting people with 20 bullets, or 40, in the back?
Perhaps locking up a significant portion of… Continue
I don't follow Monbiot or Kingsnorth carefully but I have read posts by both of them though infrequently. I have no idea what either man thinks of 9/11, climate change or other certain issues. What I do know is that they both believe we've reached a social and economic limit and I believe the same. What I do have is the ability to recognize intellect as well as the understanding that all opinions by all human beings have some value to us all.
I continually read editorial describing Obama as a Socialist committed to destroying America and bringing us pure Socialism. The problem as I see it is that most people who think in this vein really have no idea what Socialism is. In my opinion Obama isn't a Socialist. He stands in front of a group of Elitists that have nothing less in mind than Extreme Capitalism with a capital E and that form of capitalism, which we have now, destroys everything in it's path.
Because these stories are so vast and extensive I'm simply going to provide two links so you can read them yourself. This is, in a word, staggering, but most all of us here at 12.160Mhz knew this would happen.
Please, do all that you can to spread these links as far as you can.
The following timeline describes just a few of the hundreds of atrocities and crimes committed by the CIA. (1)
CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment.… Continue

Despite a treasure-trove of new information having emerged over the last forty-six years, there are many people who still think who killed President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and why are unanswerable questions. There are others who cling to the Lee Harvey Oswald “lone-nut” explanation proffered by the Warren Commission. Both groups agree, however, that whatever the truth, it has… Continue
I am the leader of a band of 8-to-12 looters. It varies. There are more of us in the summer months. I have some basic military training. We move from place to place like locusts devouring everything in our path. My group is armed with light weapons and can develop and follow simple plans of attack. We take what we want by force of arms. We prefer none of our victims survive because that could cause problems for us in the future. You are a… Continue
Local community colleges were once absolutely free. When I was in college a course ranged from free to $5o bucks at the local college. I could have completed two years of advanced education for less than $1,000.
That's over. They are removing advanced education from the grasp of most of society to allow not only for a dumbed down population but to provide the labor for the society they're creating. Young people with advanced degrees can't populate the Wal-Mart cash registers all over… Continue
I don't know everyone on this web site however I have interacted with many of you. I'm older than most all of you. Fortunately for me, in that I won't live much longer (10 years or so at best), I have escaped the coming storm. It won't ever affect me. I'm retired and a non-participant. It's just a slight drizzle now and it will only be a rainfall for many years to come. The actual storm is a long way off.
For those of you that are between 20 and 40 the future holds a myriad of… Continue
Before you go, listen to my reasoning. I'm not asking you to agree but simply to think it over.
Because gift-giving and many other aspects of the Christmas festival involve heightened economic activity among both Christians and non-Christians, the holiday has become a significant event and a key sales period for retailers and businesses, the same corporate entities I've chosen to boycott for the remainder of my life. The economic… Continue
The 'too big to fail' banks are preparing to thank Americans for their kindness in agreeing to loan them the money necessary to prevent their failure.
They'll be outsourcing jobs to India as our reward. To the tune of BILLIONS.
MUMBAI (Reuters) – Leading Indian outsourcers such as Tata Consultancy (TCS.BO), Infosys (INFY.BO) and Wipro (WIPR.BO) stand to gain contracts worth about $1 billion in the next one or two years as U.S. banks emerge from the troubled asset relief… Continue

If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth (aka AGW; aka ManBearPig) has been suddenly, brutally and quite deliciously exposed after a hacker broke into the computers at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (aka Hadley CRU) and released 61 megabites of confidential files onto the internet. (Hat tip: Watts Up With That)
Almost everyone, with exceptions, that I've encountered on 12.160Mhz has expressed at some point in time fear of Socialism, Marxism, Communism and of course the form of Extreme Capitalism, my own term, that we are experiencing here in the US today.
Socialism, Communism, Marxism and pure Capitalism aren't to be feared.
All forms of government in their purest manifestations have positive aspects that were designed to benefit humanity. They have negative aspects too. It's up… Continue

Although the text below will be presented at a Russian forum in Moscow next month I wish we had groups here in the states that had the same forethought and concern for humanity that these people obviously have. Sadly, we don't. What we do have here in the US is Extreme Capitalism and it's slowly gobbling up the globe, and you and I with it.
The following text isn't always easy to read. Even for myself, a well educated American, it sometimes required a second read. I think once having… Continue
