Well maybe I don’t have the whole story, but as of now, there are some really dumb people out there (media, USA government, environmentalist extremists…)! Did you know that by banning CFCs approximately 40 million deaths will occur or already have!!! CFCs were used by firefighters to extinguish fires. They were used as a refrigerant, and a surgical sterilizer. Not only that but they were the best extinguishers, refrigerants, and surgical sterilizers.
You know our buddy ozone, right? Yeah well he’s getting eaten by ultraviolet light, and there are some thin patches now and people are getting worried. Well unless you live on the South Pole you don’t need to be worried.
1. The only places where CFCs are eating away at the ozone layer are at the North and South Poles, principally the South Pole. The weather conditions at these sites are ideal for CFC-induced destruction of the ozone layer. These weather conditions do not exist elsewhere on the planet, so there is little chance of the problem spreading.
2. The total destruction of the ozone layer by CFCs is, by all best estimates, about 5% at the South Pole. To put this number in perspective, the amount of ozone in the ozone layer fluctuates naturally by about 50%! Thus, the natural ups and downs in the ozone layer are 10 times the amount of destruction that has been caused by CFCs.
3. Not a single illness (or death) can be traced to ozone destruction. The effect is simply too small to affect living organisms.

So, I don’t know what all the fuss is about, in fact, why aren’t people putting up a fuss about the banning of CFCs?
Here are some resources to explore the controversy further:

Well, I really enjoy this topic, and at this point I’m not trying to support both sides, however, I may publish a post that has supporting evidence for both sides later. Evolution, a idea that has become popular only recently, was popularized by Charles Darwin. In (most) schools it is taught without thought to its possible inaccuracy. However, I would like to remind everyone of this quote from Darwin’s Origin of Species: “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.” –Chapter VI, Organs of Extreme Perfection; page 187; Origin of Species.
The flagellum, my friend, is a Biological machine, that, cannot be broken down. If it was, then, it would not be able to function. So when being formed it could not have been formed by numerous, slight modifications. Here are some clips that you can watch to get a better understanding.
The state of Indiana just passed House Bill 1001: Right to Work. Governor Mitch Daniels signed the bill just the other day. This bill makes it an employees right to change unions, not have to pay the union dues, or pay to a third party, etc. This Bill has been controversial in Indiana; obviously the unions do not like it, but there are many who do, think it is one of our freedoms in America. Here is a summary posted on the Indiana Government website:
DIGEST OF HB 1001 (Updated February 1, 2012 11:49 am – DI 84)
Employee’s right to work. Makes it a Class A misdemeanor to require an individual to: (1) become or remain a member of a labor organization; (2) pay dues, fees, or other charges to a labor organization; or (3) pay to a charity or another third party an amount that represents dues, fees, or other charges required of members of a labor organization; as a condition of employment or continuation of employment. Provides that the Indiana department of labor may investigate and issue administrative orders for violations or threatened violations. Establishes a separate private right of action for violations or threatened violations. Provides that the statute does not apply to federal employees, employees subject to certain federal laws, certain employees over whom the federal government has jurisdiction, state employees, and employees of a political subdivision. Provides that the statute does not apply to the extent it is in conflict with or preempted by federal law. Provides that the statute is not intended, and should not be construed, to change or affect any other law concerning collective bargaining or collective bargaining agreements in the building and construction industry.
Hey readers, I found a video on YouTube that I instantly knew would make a good blog post. It’s called “We The People”. It is pretty much a video about Obama, and how the people in the video don’t like him, and think he is a tyrant. It would have been a good video if it included some valid information. However, it didn’t contain hardly anything but propaganda. I left a comment saying:
This video deserves a dislike for two reasons:
1. Criticizing president Obama with a personal attack, and not even giving supporting information of why they think he’s incompetent.
2. Trying to corrupt other people’s opinions of Obama just because the creators of this movie obviously don’t support him.
“We the people” should stand behind our government, instead of criticizing our president because “we the people” don’t like him.
As J.F.K. said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
I have weighed out the options, and decided not to embed the video on my blog, as I don’t want to corrupt my blog by displaying propaganda. If you are curious, just google search it. I am not a big Obama supporter, and I accept the fact that he isn’t exactly the best president. However, it’s not right to spread propaganda about him, even if you might have a freedom of speech. People need to grow up and stop posting stupid videos. I guess that’s really all I have to say on the matter. If you want to put in your two cents, feel free to leave a comment. Until next time!
