Obama has a plan….socialism….and he’s executing it one destructive step at a time

Posted by Stephen on June 29, 2010

Costner cleanup device gets high marks from BP

Posted by Stephen on June 25, 2010

It was treated as an oddball twist in the otherwise wrenching saga of the BP oil spill when Kevin Costner stepped forward to promote a device he said could work wonders in containing the spill’s damage. But as Henry Fountain explains in the New York Times, the gadget in question — an oil-separating centrifuge — marks a major breakthrough in spill cleanup technology.

Posted by Stephen on June 24, 2010

Arlington, Va.— If you own a piece of property in New York State, you won’t like today’s ruling by the state’s high court.

Today’s decision comes on the heels of the court’s decision last year in Goldstein v. Urban Development Corporation, which allowed homes and businesses in Brooklyn to be turned over to wealthy developer Bruce Ratner to build luxury condominiums and a basketball arena.
