Ammunition for trade: bartering instead of cash

Read more at :

When a man in rural upstate New York recently had central air-conditioning installed in his home, he offered an unusual method of payment for the job.

“The owner said, ‘My father just passed away and left me some guns and ammunition,’” recalls a 63-year-old electrician named Richard, who offered only his first name. “The guy gave me 3,000 rounds of 9-mm ammunition.” The bullets are worth around . “After that, I added it to my business card that I accept cash or bartered items.”

UN, White House Climate Reports "an Excuse to Control the American People"

Read the entire article at :

The chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology charged Thursday that reports from the United Nations and the White House on the threat of global climate change “appear to be designed to spread fear and alarm” in an effort to provide the Obama administration with “an excuse to control more of the lives of the American people.”

Speaking at a hearing designed to examine the process utilized by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in developing its assessment of climate change, a report slated for release in October, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) asserted that the group’s goal “is an international climate treaty that redistributes wealth among nations.”

“Serious concerns have been raised about the IPCC, including lack of transparency in author and study selection, and inconsistent approaches to data quality, peer review, publication cut-off dates and the cherry-picking of results,” Smith said.

The chairman also derided the National Climate Assessment, a White House report assembled by 300 noted scientists that found the nation already is experiencing the effects of global climate change and warned that the situation is likely to worsen.

Interesting, and a little disturbing. From :

The  has been quietly revising its decisions years after they were issued, altering the law of the land without public notice. The revisions include “truly substantive changes in factual statements and legal reasoning,” said , a law professor at Harvard and the author of  examining the phenomenon.

Ted Cruz: Senate Dems, Led By Schumer, Want to ‘Repeal the First Amendment’ This Year

Don't think the 2nd Amendment is the only one under attack. :

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told attendees at a Family Research Council pastors retreat that Democrats wanted to limit free speech through amending the Constitution.
“When you think it can’t get any worse, it does,” Cruz said at the FRC’s Watchmen on the Wall 2014 event in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. “This year, I’m sorry to tell you, the United States Senate is going to be voting on a constitutional amendment to repeal the First Amendment.”

Calling these “perilous, perilous times,” Cruz said Senate Democrats have said they are ready to vote on the amendment, Senate Joint Resolution 19 – “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.”

“Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has announced the Senate Democrats are scheduling a vote on a constitutional amendment to give Congress the authority to regulate political speech, because elected officials have decided they don’t like it when the citizenry has the temerity to criticize what they’ve done,” he said.

New technology that allows parents to hold a life-size model of their unborn child

Pretty darn cool. Technology has come a long way since my kids were born. It would have been pretty awesome to hold a life-size 3D model of the kids prior to their birth. :

It's a defining moment in a parent's life: Seeing their unborn child's image on an ultrasound for the first time. Now pregnant women could have the chance to hold a life-size model of their unborn baby.

The startling new medical technology is the result of a Royal College of Art design student's PhD.
