Cold Case Solved: Carlina White Reunites With Parents
White Was Kidnapped as a Baby 23 Years Ago From a New York City Hospital

*** begin quote ***

Carlina White, separated from her family when she was kidnapped as a baby 23 years ago, followed her instincts to reunite with her biological parents, Joy White and Carl Tyson. “Carlina was a missing link and we have gotten her back in the name of Jesus, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah,” Pat Conway, White’s godmother, said. On Aug. 4, 1987, worried parents Joy White and Carl Tyson took their feverish baby daughter to Harlem Hospital’s emergency room. The visit turned into horror when…

DNA?

As much as I like happy endings, there is a LOT more to the story.

Gooferment screw ups: <1> Hospital; <2> School; … must be others.

It would seem that there are a lot of charges to be investigated and filed in this case.

Technology had a role in finding with the computer aged photos.

Perhaps, this will have a happy ending?

INTERESTING: A one minute osprey video

An osprey figures out how to remove the drag in air-resistance that the fish is causing. From the BBC series ‘The Life of Birds’.

A one minute video that is impressive, thought provoking, and ultimately (to me) very interesting.

Makes me wonder.

PRODUCTIVITY: Differentiating between REAL and imaginary

The Law Isn’t Worth the Paper It’s Written On
Posted by Kevin Carson on Apr 18, 2009 in Commentary • 2 comments

*** begin quote ***

As Barney Fife said, “Rule Number One: Obey all the rules!” Here in Arkansas, gas pumps bear signs with the stern visage of a state trooper warning potential scofflaws that driving off without paying for gas will cause their drivers’ licenses to be revoked. The assumption, apparently, is that someone who will steal gas without any moral qualm or fear of getting caught, will nevertheless be afraid to drive without a license.

*** end quote ***

Make all the laws you want.

It’s really a misnomer to call what legislators produce as “laws”. Now the “Law” of Gravity; that’s a real LAW! You can’t break it in most human frames of reference.

We need a new meme that differentiates between: LAWS like gravity and laws like come form Congress.

And, let’s not even get started on “regulations”, which I call diktats.

RANT: How do I acquire this “moral obligation”?

The moral dilemma of today’s statists
A Minority View Walter Williams
Posted: April 01, 2009

*** begin quote ***

There is neither moral justification nor constitutional authority for what amounts to legalized theft. This is not an argument against paying taxes. We all have a moral obligation to pay our share of the constitutionally mandated and enumerated functions of the federal government.

*** end quote ***

Unfortunately, I have to disagree with Professor Williams. I’m even further out on the Libertarian spectrum form him. I can refute his “moral obligation” with two words:

“Lysander Spooner”!

How is it I’m bound by what the DOWGs wrote before I was ever born?

And, that assumes that the Constitution in some way binds the gang in the District of Corruption!

Argh!

Former West Wing Actress Allison Janney Cheers Obama, Stumps for Abortion
by Steven Ertelt

March 13, 2009

*** begin quote ***

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Actress Allison Janney, best known for her role in the television drama “West Wing,” is stumping for the pro-abortion group Emily’s List. In a fundraising email for the political group, Janney applauds the pro-abortion record of President Barack Obama and asks for donations to support his efforts.

“During the dark days of the last administration, millions of Americans watched Martin Sheen play an intelligent, compassionate president on The West Wing,” Janney says in the email LifeNews.com received. “Isn’t it exciting to have the real thing in Barack Obama?”

Despite his decisions to force taxpayers to pay for promoting and performing abortions in other nations and embryonic stem cell research, Janney claims, “President Obama has set us on a course to move our country in a more hopeful, positive direction.”

*** end quote ***

It’s a real shame. “Liberal” Hollywood types confuse play acting for the real thing.

I’m saddened. She’s a good actress. And, she certainly has the right to speak freely. I just wish she had the same degree of understanding of a very complex issue.

(1) I object to paying for that which I find morally reprehensible. I’m force to fund Obama’s abortion plans.

(2) It’s genocide! Death by government. We’re strangling the life out of the future. I’ve made the argument before what if we have aborted the cure for cancer, the next Steven Hawking, or the future Obama?

(3) Hollywood success doesn’t translate into policy expertise or even common sense. In this case, she equates “West Wing” with the new tyranny in the White House.

(4) Abortion is a policy, social, and personal DISASTER on so many levels. Be best if the gooferment just got out of the debate. And, let the people involved sort it out. Legislating it as a right is just morally wrong!

Argh!

INTERESTING: Elephants in “love” communicate

When It Comes To Elephant Love Calls
in: Animals, Breakthrough Thinking, Crazy Stuff, analysis

*** begin quote ***

Elephants, however, have two highly developed additional sensory systems at their disposal, both of which can be used for detecting the potential mate’s seismic signals (humans have both, too, just not tuned to using vibrations as communication). One system is bone conduction, in which the vibrations travel from the toe tips into the foot bones, then up the leg and into the middle ear. The other, somatosensory reception, involves vibration-sensitive cells in the bottom of the foot that send signals to the brain via nerves.

Interesting how animals are “more in tune” with each other than humans are?

The Real Frauds: Why Did A-Rod’s Teammates Even Bother To Show Up?

By DAULERIO, 5:15 PM on Tue Feb 17 2009

SI writer Jeff Pearlman offers his thoughts about the A-Rod press conference. Specifically, why are his teammates still supporting him?

*** begin quote ***

They sat like lemmings, one alongside the other alongside the other, nodding with Alex Rodriguez’s words, showing that-good or bad-he is one of them. That he is a New York Yankee.

*** and ***

You’re Derek Jeter. You’ve presumably played the game cleanly since making your debut 14 years ago. You’re known as a stand-up guy and a hard-nosed shortstop who believes in the pure goodness of baseball. Why would you support ARod?

*** end quote ***

Interesting question?

More importantly: Why should anyone care what someone else puts in their body?

Just don’t expect me to pick up the tab for your choices.
