My recent comments made hither and yon at Sodahead.com. These may help Readers understand what No-Ruler and myself are about, and why. If you readers who can understand this just keep sitting on your hands rather than Resisting Tyranny, it’s time to get active here or disappear.
“You have to be strong. The only thing you do all day is just not break,” says Katherine “KteeO” Olejnik, on her two month detention in solitary confinement.
In September 2012, KteeO and her colleague, Matthew Duran, were imprisoned and sent to solitary confinement at Seattle Federal Detention Center for refusing to testify in front of a grand jury. They weren’t being tried for any crime, but refused to testify because of their political ideals.
Includes a 7-minute video discussing the principles involved. Please read and comment.
Now, a new technology based upon the amazing properties of graphene to convert light to electricity is showing signs of surpassing silicon as the most efficient path toward potential free energy. And even if it comes up short of that lofty goal, it still might revolutionize computing and electronics.
Let me show you why the plunder of Cyprus is probably one of the most
brilliant acts of wholesale theft the world has ever known, why the
stolen treasure may be thousands of times greater than has been
suggested, and why the names of the victims, and the full value of the
loot, will remain a mystery forever.
In the days of wooden ships and iron men, colonial empires pillaged
entire populations. At sea, independent traders, merchantmen, privateers
and pirates (broadly, those who operated without paying tribute to to
one crown or another) were masters at avoiding the powerful warships of
unfriendly nations. Of great importance in this effort was knowing which
flag to fly, when, in order to avoid capture.

Jason Kissner recently questioned President Obama’s whereabouts in spring 1982, and also discussed in passing some of the courses Obama took while at Columbia. In response, I would like to try my hand at reconstructing the Columbia part of Obama’s college transcript based on the published record and my own knowledge of Columbia’s requirements as an ’84 graduate of the college. This reconstruction may be of interest to those who are curious about this part of Obama’s undergraduate education, and it may also shed light on where Obama must have been in spring 1982.
Columbia College is well known for its rigorous core curriculum. Students must not only study masterpieces of literature, philosophy, music, and art, but also take courses in science, a foreign language, and even physical education. These requirements add up to a total of 48 credit hours. Based on a typical student load of 16 credit hours per semester, a student would need to spend three semesters taking nothing but core courses in order to complete the requirement. (In practice, students typically take most of these courses in the first two years of study, perhaps getting to a few of them over the course of the next two years.) As will be seen below, as a transfer student with only two years to complete the core requirements, most of Obama’s coursework must have been devoted to taking courses in the core.
The original post continues with calculation of Obama’s likely credits..
Societies on Planet Earth evolved in different places, all rather unique in geography and climate, and all with disparities of race, religion, and language. As the populations grew, they naturally expanded, and when one group finally bumped into another, communication was too difficult, thus the territorial nature of humans arose.
Barons and kings and emperors and all manner of tyrants evolved…
