Canned Air OOT

Ahhh, capitalism!

 

 

Canned air for sale in China, as blanket of smog returns

 

Entrepreneur Chen Guangbiao sells canned air to make a point about toll on environment.

Beijing: A Chinese entrepreneur is selling fresh air in soft drinks cans, similar to bottled drinking water, as north China is once again choking in toxic smog.

 

Yes, the air is that bad in China, think Pittsburgh in the 1920′s. The point of this is that the Chinese government didn’t make this guy eat a bullet. Mao would have had him executed.  Progress? I think so.

SO, enjoy your smog free OOT!

    If the cell phone crap that I talked about doesn’t make it clear, this does.

    I think China will shortly be more capitalist than we are. We are headed downhill easily as fast as they’re headed up.

    What I think baffles me is this one facet: the Librarian of Congress. Someone we rarely hear about, yet he has the power to change something in place for 15 years, just arbitrarily. Something that has been upheld three times now (including the original act). Why does he hold this level of power? Why is there no appeal process or debate involved. Just how many government bureaucrats hold this kind of power without our knowledge?

    He’s been in office since 87.

    And yet we know so little about his level of authority.

    No NLP is actually the basis of hypnotism and just plain good old con work. Unlike phrenology it is something that actually is used on a daily basis. Advertising is especially good at it. The won has a couple speech writers with quite a bit of skill in that area. And when he isn’t off teleprompter or Umming his way into idiocy, he’s actually pretty good at the speaking patterns.

    It seems odd that O and Willy Jeff have both been President, when in a time long ago, they both would have been tarred and feathered and rode off on a rail. (Now someone is going to claim I’m a racist.) I’m obviously talking about the fact both are nothing but con men. Their slick (well at least in Klintons case) behavior and snake oil salesmen style would have had every town they came to immediately suspicious.

    Thomas Jefferson once said: “It is better to tolerate the rare instance of parent[s] refusing to let their child be educated, than to shock the common feelings and ideas by the forcible transportation and education against [their] will.”

    I did not know this. So the proggies have already told the founding fathers to go to hell in that area.

    Well apparently my weekly headache has arrived and a handful of NSAIDS did nothing for it, so I better hit a hot shower and head to bed.

    (I really need to talk to my doctor about what I’m supposed to do. I get frequent headaches Stress, Sinus, light sensitivity, and migraine, but I was told no more NSAIDS. I’ve used some prescribed narco in the past and didn’t show any signs of addictive tendencies, but I’m still paranoid it could happen. I guess I shouldn’t worry. One pill every one to two weeks isn’t really likely to cause addiction.)

    Ok, technically two pills since the headache usually lasts for 24 to 48 hours. But, that does take a bit of stress off.

    I was busy this morning, or I would have commented on that thread. (Yikes, me posting in daylight hours!)

    My hybrid wolf dog shuns carbs in the form of table scraps whereas the other two domestic dogs will eat almost anything plopped down in front of them.

    We do feed the hybrid a high protein dry dog food and supplement her diet with fresh meat, chicken and fish. If we just feed her commercial bought food, she has GI issues.

    So, yes, I guess I would agree, domestic dogs digest and tolerate carbs. Wolves, not so much. (anecdotal evidence on my part)

    It’s one of those things that involve multiple genes whose effect is additive. Dogs have more copies than wolves, so your hybrid may have an intermediate number of genes for the enzymes involved.

    Leia will eat just about any vegetables. Even lettuce.

    @ lobo91:

    She doesn’t really care for rice, though. I noticed that when she was sick. I tried giving her rice and chicken, and she mostly just ate the chicken and left the rice.

    Oddly enough, her regular dry food is made of lamb and rice. She likes that.

    @ Moe Katz:
    She’s a low content wolf dog, so no.

    I believe, IIRC, she is classified as an F4.

    I really was only hunting down a Siberian puppy to go with my other Siberian when I spotted her in the paper listed as “wolfdog”. I thought, sure what do you rednecks know… y’all even think a Siberian is a wolf dog. Most interesting dog I have ever known.

    An F4 ought to be pretty tame. Wish I could meet her and check her out.

    I don’t know what that one was that we encountered at the gun show, but it was huge, and not well-trained. It was pretty much dragging the woman on the other end of the leash down the aisle.

    Not sure why anyone would bring an animal like that to a crowded public gathering. Just seems like trouble waiting to happen.

    Maybe it was a gun breed and it really wanted to go.

    @ lobo91:

    the coyotes have moved back into NW pa form the west. this is a fairly recent occurrence. what my parents are watching for up there is cross breed coyote/feral dog. thus far, dad has only had to shoot a few rounds out of a *deleted* to scare off the coyotes.

    i got to get face to face with one (at 75 ft) in the fall. in the evening and at night at least one person is armed if we are outside, especially with our dogs.

    For dinner? No.

    The breeder we got her from had several kids. One little kid carried her in to meet me and another little kid carried in her brother, who was monster-sized budda bellied looking puppy, The kids said, choose the girl, she listens. The boy is a bad boy. I took the kids advice.

    So, the early exposure has left her a definite affection for kids.

    She now stands on my kid’s trampoline with her face over the fence into the neighbor’s yard and summons/howls at the kids to come pet her when they are outside. Loudly, until they comply.

    they are, and are a vector. the increase in rabid racoon and foxes is noticeable. the farmers and land owners are all well armed and burn anything rabid that they kill or come across.

    i had a raccoon practically walk into the garage in mid day. our dogs went nuts. dad was quick with a very scary gun that makes most liberals cower in fear. oh yes, there is a reason for semi autos.

    sure. that’s cool.

    the farmers and landowners feel differently. now if the coyotes are out in the woods, no one cares. when they get aggressive and go after live stock, well….

    I had a coyote snatch my little dog off the porch at our weekend house. Of course, I ran down the mountain after the coyote who was trying to snap the dog’s neck by shaking it back and forth. Instinct, I guess, is why I followed. I didn’t have a plan as to how to rescue my dog from this coyote, I just knew I had to try. Then, out of no where comes my Siberian who promptly took the coyote by the neck, bit and shook the coyote until it let my little dog go. No gun, the big Siberian took care of his pack.

    When I was in high school, we had a German shepherd that would protect everyone in our house, including the cat. When the cat had kittens, he actually babysat them. If they got out of their box, he picked them up and put them back.


  107. 107 | January 29, 2013 2:54 am

    Apparently that hideously overpriced .223 that appeared yeterday evening on LuckyGunner vanished in a couple of hours.

    Okay, okay – it was top of the line match/hunting ammo, so maybe it wasn’t actually hideously overpriced. But for anybody used to just buying Federal/American Eagle FMJ, it was eye-popping. At those prices, I’d just as soon get a Garand and shoot .30-06 or .308. Or maybe that Sharps in .45/70 – hmmm…

    I have come to the disappointing conclusion that voting is a privilege to be earned, like a drivers license…people voting for their own unearned government handout is unacceptable…there is no moral, ethical, or logical argument that will change my mind…I’m out of the closet

    I’ve heard that some of the founders wanted to restrict voting rights to those who held property. At some level I tend to agree, though it’s not at all realistic to think the genie could ever be put back in the bottle at this point. I agree that government dependents voting is much like giving children equal say in one’s household.


  113. 114 | January 29, 2013 6:18 am

    I like the voting rights plan in David Weber’s Honor Harrington series. “To be able to vote a Manticoran Citizen had to prove that they had paid in taxes at least 1 cent more than they had received in benefits. Salaries for actual jobs on which they had paid Taxes were not considered a benefit.”

    It’s still early for 2013 BUT, I think this is a great test.

    Folks will make mistakes. But if they go saying thousands of words to cover their BS then they should arouse deep suspicion.

    If on the other hand, they say “I’m sorry. I was wrong.” then maybe they have a chance for redemption.

    The 2nd is a handy touchstone. Get a politico’s honest opinion on that, and you can pretty much where he’ll stand and what he actually believes on a host of other issues. So far as I’m concerned, this settles it for Rubio. I’ve never been a big fan of “Road to Damascus” last-minute conversions.
