Palin Lashes Out At Bernanke, Urging Him To 'Cease And Desist' Purchase Of Treasuries

Palin Lashes Out At Bernanke, Urging Him To 'Cease And Desist' Purchase Of Treasuries

Commented Nov 8, 2010 at 16:52:02 in Business

“Anything! especially for tea partiers to highlight that there is a monetary problem…..; however, the rest of the world may not agree with Treasury buying up Fed notes as a solution.
A nationalised Fed with 51 state banks would be great, especially if all of the state banks were just like the one in North Dakota. With a state bank organization we could nationalize the Fed or create among states a united currency- preferably commodity based, and let Washington rot. There are many solutions….”

“There are 2 things that don't compute in this plan.
1) There are deposits of 100 million tons of H3 on the moon, the only fuel for nuclear reactors which produces no radioactive waste.
Clearly worth mining and taxpayers should get a percentage!
2) The US must provide security of lauches by business to assure that no weapons are taken into space eminating from the US.”

ThinkyMcgee on Apr 15, 2010 at 16:24:48

“1) He3 (which i assume is what you meant since H3 is not found on the moon or anywhere else for that matter and is an unstable atom) is only Postulated to be on the moon in large quantities, and there is no way that it can be used in fusion reactors with no radioactive waste. The math for it certainly works that way, but in practice it is impossible to prevent he3-he3 fusion which will produce neutrons and cause radioactivity.
If He3 WERE on the moon in large percentages, and did turn out to be a valuable commodity, private companies would be up there so fast your head would spin, and since a country cannot claim ownership of the moon or any space objects according to the 1979 moon agreement.

As for preventing the weaponization of space - it will have to be done the old fashioned way, review, ability to shoot down satellites, oversight. You aren't going to be able to stop private industry from going into space. Won't happen.”

“The greatest threat concerning proliferation of weapons is space, because of its inherent strategic advantages.
Therefore the US government in abandoning NASA’s activity in low orbit space must continue to provide inspections and top security of all launches emanating from the US to prevent cargo containing weapons to be sent-off by individual groups or foreign countries.
There is no greater threat to mankind than groups of individuals or small countries controlling weapons of any nature in space.
In addition, the American taxpayers deserve a percentage of future business activity in the mining of lunar deposits of H3, the only fuel for nuclear reactors which produces no radioactive waste.”

“There is no more time left for arguing.
Bolivia has no longer glaciers, therefore no water.
We need a zillion white roofs in South America, the Middle East, south west USA, and many other places. Hydrogen fuel cell tech and numerous other sustainable techologies can help.”

“Absolutely, and great post. Unfortunately, just when the planet needs to make an enormous effort to fight climate change, we also need to make the public aware of the origins of public relations campaigns trying to discredit global warming by saying reputable scientists have any "doubt" whatsoever. The American public is being taken on a ride and they need to know who's paying for anti-climate change arguments.

I also continue to be amazed that debate on climate change splits almost completely on political party lines. Science doesn't work that way. It splits between fact and fiction. If you were driving a car and deciding whether to run a train, and you were told there was greater than a 90% probability that you would be killed, you would take that seriously and wait until it passed. Climate science is no different.

Denying climate change by making the American public believe there is any doubt is the biggest hoax perpetrated on the American public since the tobacco companies fooled us for years into believing there was "doubt" that cigarettes cause cancer.

It's ironic right-wingers also fail to notice that combating climate change would also make us energy-independent, and should we actually have enough brains to start manufacturing renewable products, such as wind turbines, collectors, or parabolic troughs, we would get a position in the burgeoning world market for these goods. Instead, we're letting China take the lead, and at this moment, we're even being bested by Denmark.”

“Are you suggesting lunar H3 deposits, the ONLY fuel for nuclear reactors that produces NO radioactive waste that we give it to business for nothing after developing NASA’S technologies for decade???????
Let’s first deal with what we have on the ground.

Las Paz, Bolivia, population: 4 MILLION PEOPLE, basically has NO WATER; because there are NO GLACIERS, severe glacier melting the past 10 years.
Lake Titicaca has been poisoned by mining and is undrinkable, therefore cannot be used as an intermediate resource.
NO GLACIERS goes beyond even drinking water affecting ALL activities of nature.
Where will these people go???? Who will help them????
Climate change has destroyed their habitat and will ultimately affect their lives.

Commented Mar 15, 2010 at 17:56:27 in Politics

“I am not a specialist on health care. I live in Switzerland and have basic insurance, which is mandatory and costs a couple of hundred dollars per month.
This means that if I need a non-emergency operation I will stay in a room with 9 other people, and the date of an operation will correspond to dates that the hospital provides for those kinds of operations. The medications I will receive will not be the latest nor the most expensive, but generic most often. This is what basic provides along with coverage for all accidents.
In Europe it is difficult to sue a doctor or hospital for malpractice, therefore medical malpractice assurance is low.
Already basic health assurance provides a lot; accidents, any emergency, operations, and medication for diseases even if it is not the latest medication.
Assurance will never be everything, but I have got at least everything that I and my children will need. In the future if ever I would like first class health assurance, all I need to do is to take out a second policy.”
