Is the Truth a Marketable Commodity?

Does the water flow downward? Was Alice raped in Wonderland? well, what about Michelle Bachman? I can walk outside on the terrasse, and view the lawn and conclude that the lawn is growing and I will have to cut it tomorrow. It is then bad to consider what others tell me… Read full post »

Finally back

Well done - this has taken time and now I am back in the world. I have missed the community. It is strange how when things happen, and my log-in was gone, I felt "fenced out". It was not pleasant at all. All you were in the community, you could post… Read full post »

Julian: Wazzit you?

Mr. Julian Assange, you now admit the rape of two girls by your behaviour - running away from facing a judge in Sweden on allegations. Well, initially it is not even facing a judge in Sweden, just that the court wants to hear your story and compare this to what the… Read full post »

I watched Todd Akin lecture on sex-ed: ""...from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

Now, Mr. Akin and those who do not know: If you poke… Read full post »

Questions About Sanity

I just wonder, here we had a person who killed 77 and he now had his time in court that comes to a verdict of was this a sane action by an insane individual or an insane action by a sane, but mislead and misguided individual.

The claim of "sanity" is… Read full post »

How are we doing?

We strive to maintain sanity while insanity is questioned in the court, and ask you all to judge.  What is your impression of the trial of Anders B. Breivik - is it fair? is he provided the correct opportunity to speak for himself? is his defence proper and fair? does the… Read full post »

Out of the Recession

The question at the moment is "Will there be a double dip?" and the bottom line is that the PIG countries in Europe have spent more than they earned. 

The problem with America is that they intend to save their way through this, since nobody wants to pay for the party.… Read full post »

I see that you wonder about the Norwegian reponse to the terror, well it is Norwegian and relates to the experience of the second world war. You see, we sorted that also out our own way. Some of this relates to the very radical left-winged poet and journalist, Nordahl Grieg. He… Read full post »

Americans and TAXES

Since I will at times live in the US, I have the choice of paying my taxes to the land of the brave, in particular, the state of Texas, or where I live in Europe (UK or Norway). It is an easy choice, since after I have paid medical and pension… Read full post »

Please let Common Sense Prevail!

In the article "Disconnect": Why cellphones may be killing us" (its a link to the article) - they claim with every right that cellphones may be dangerous. They also question if they can be getting more dangerous. The answer to their rhetorics is "yes" they are getting more dangerous, because the… Read full post »

There is a ongoing "hearing" in Washington about the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico following the blow-up of the Deepwater Horizon.

 The US administration wants all cards on the table and review what can be done to avoid this happening again.

The Norwegian classification company, Det norske Veri… Read full post »

It makes a rational European wonder. You write a moden constitution that guarantees civil liberties, rights to worship any religion (not like in some countries where you only can worship the rigtht deity). Well, you then ban things that can offend - like religeous symbols in public schools, and prote… Read full post »

The usual understanding of a "disaster" is that things go really wrong. You know, someone swims happily at the beach and is then caught by the undercurrent, and what was long, calm strokes indicates that the person is about to drown. So, you swim to the person, offer a hand just… Read full post »

I read all these postings about the "disaster" in the Mexican Gulf - and it is really bad. What is worse is that the poor soods that is involved does not have the wit to ask for help - but they try with everything from sawdust, hair (anyone said nails -… Read full post »

I have good news, someone has called and involved Norwegian scientists. So a couple of weeks to late, you have the sense to ask those with experience and access to the latest technology to recover and plug the well.

Having said this, I also make you aware that an offhore rig… Read full post »

The Oil Disaster in the Gulf

I know the rig, and my sympathies goes to the friends and family of those that died. I know the operator, as truely professional US operator.
But my reaction is "Thank God, finally this happened in the US".

It is a relief. How many times have we been told that this is something… Read full post »

Medical Misery

To make certain, my remark is not to compare any proposals tabled for an American healthcare, so I post a cartoon from Arab News in Riyadh:

Hypocracy

We recently saw one of those that planted the bomb on a aircraft on its way to the US, be released on humanitarian grounds. He was escorted to his plane, so he could return to his home country and die with his family.

Greed, OPEC and Lack of Gratitude.

This is really a comment to another post - where the author climbs out of a military vehicle and complains about OPEC, oil prices and greed - apparently with OPEC. 

It just looks different from where I sit, comfortable in an oil-exporting nation where the US embassy has been converted into a… Read full post »
