What is this?… I have been down highway 17 to Charleston uncountable times. This is the 1st time I have seen this unknown massive building... Did some billionaire just build a new mansion?
Every town needs one of these… I want one of these!
Deregulation, some say, is asking authorities to look the other way.
Bribery, others say, is paying authorities to look the other way.
…What is it when the Banking Lobby pays congress $1million per day?

BILL MOYERS: Welcome to the JOURNAL. With all due respect, we can only wish those tea party activists who gathered this week were not so single-minded about just who’s responsible for their troubles, real and imagined. They’re up in arms, so to speak, against big government, especially the Obama administration.
But if they thought this through, they’d be joining forces with other grassroots Americans who will soon be demonstrating in Washington and elsewhere against high finance, taking on Wall Street and the country’s biggest banks.
The original Tea Party, remember, wasn’t directed just against the British redcoats. Colonial patriots also took aim at the East India Company. That was the joint-stock enterprise originally chartered by the first Queen Elizabeth. Over the years, the government granted them special rights and privileges, which the owners turned into a monopoly over trade, including tea.
It may seem a stretch from tea to credit default swaps, but the principle is the same: when enormous private wealth goes unchecked, regular folks get hurt – badly. That’s what happened in 2008 when the monied interests led us up the garden path to the great collapse.
With a lack of any real leadership in the BP Gulf Oil Disaster, who can we turn to?
Kevin Costner, of course.
I was sitting outside on the square in Laurens, SC… A “Tea Party” demonstration sprang up around me.
In today’s 24-hour-news, short-attention-span, knee-jerk world, long term thinking is rare.
Dr. George Friedman is rare and right (in my opinion).
Listen to his predictions for The Next 100 Years… Tell me what you think!
I watched a special on CNN the other night. Anderson Cooper did interview with preacher, as part of story.
This man spoke some incredible words – These are those words.
Pranav Mistry of MIT Media Labs, called one of the 3 greatest minds on earth today, has created a new wearable device called SixthSense. Watch the video below, compliments of Ted.com, and be amazed. Then realize…
You can create this yourself for a few dollars in off-the-shelf parts, and free open-source software Pranav is making publicly available!
We grew up interacting with the physical objects around us. There is an enormous number of them that we use every day. Unlike most of our computing devices, these objects are much more fun to use. When you talk about objects, one other thing automatically comes attached to that thing, and that is gestures: how we manipulate these objects, how we use these objects in everyday life. We use gestures not only to interact with these objects, but we also use them to interact with each other. A gesture of “Namaste!”, maybe, to respect someone, or maybe — in India I don’t need to teach a kid that this means “four” in cricket. It comes as a part of our everyday learning.
I caught this Bald Eagle on camera November 11, 8:00am…
At low tide, on sand bar, off Harbor Island and Hunting Island, SC.
Bald Eagle catches a seagull in mid-air, consumes half…
and takes off with its kill when I get too close.
Just like in the movie The Terminator, the march to Judgment Day has begun – for real!
Only, the real Terminator will have 3 fingers.
This video introduces the demonstration of skillful manipulation using a high-speed robotic system.
