Limited resources are a good.

Filed under: Down the drain,Economy — hannah @ 1:36 pm

Indeed, one might even say that limited resources, including limited financial resources, are a summum bonum. Why? Because “not enough” is a handy excuse for imposing deprivation. Why would anyone want to do that? Because to deprive any organism, including particularly members of one’s own species, of the necessities of life is the ultimate high. What could be more significant than deciding who gets to live and who dies prematurely?

Sea Island is a Restricted Zone

This is the warning that greets potential visitors to the Sea Island enclave.

One wonders, do they pay extra for round the clock surveillance or is that just a bonus extended to the privileged class.
One also wonders if the Glynn County Police keep the tapes and could tell us how many truck loads of dirt for illegal filling of the wetlands are being delivered on a daily basis.

Rehydrating the aquifer

Filed under: Down the drain — hannah @ 8:42 am

Rehydrating the Floridan aquifer, whence both South Georgia and much of the state of Florida draw their drinking water supplies, is definitely in order. Decades of draining surface waters into the ocean hasn’t just dewatered millions of acres but depleted the underground supply. However, injecting industrial waste waters is not an appropriate response. Industrial wastes need to be removed, not just neutralized by adding even more chemicals.

Eding Spending Ad.

What a lovely opposition this Michelle has got! What higher compliment could be paid than to partner her with Barack Obama? And it’s probably not because Ms. Nunn’s first name is Michelle.

I could hardly believe my eyes when I read that this ad is showing up on my computer thanks to the Ending Spending Action Fund. At least, their objective is easy to understand, albeit typically irrational.

WaPo goes to Ferguson

And brings back a predictable story. Abused people turn into abusers with a strong authoritarian streak in an effort to compensate for having been abandoned. Maybe it’s the abandonment that does it, more than the abuse.

Creative Destruction

Filed under: another perspective — hannah @ 10:44 am

It’s a theory, loosely related to the industrial/marketing concept of planned obsolescence. While I am personally inclined to see it as an excuse for destroying what other people have made by individuals whose creative abilities are slim to non-existent, since material production, unlike the delivery of services, almost inevitably confronts market saturation, there is a practical rationale for getting rid of the old and making way for the new.

Camp Bondsteel Revisited, again

Filed under: another perspective — hannah @ 1:26 pm

Previously, we learned of Joe Biden’s visits and the planned transition of Camp Bondsteel, in Kosovo, to the KFOR headquarters. For some reason, Google Earth needs to dissemble the location.
