With US politics swimming in so much corporate money that it's pretty much an oligarchy, it can be hard to keep track of all the corruption. Luckily, there's an app for that.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Smart kid! Hope the app helps all of us keep up with this really well. I think we should have been tracking this closer about 30 years ago or more.

Government reforms will 'probably kill stand-alone solar PV in the UK'

Government reforms will 'probably kill stand-alone solar PV in the UK' | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
By publishing its 'reform' proposals for the support of large scale solar PV in two separate documents on the same day, the Government managed to conceal its true intent from the industry, writes Chris Goodall. The truth is much worse than anyone realised.

Via Gordon McGlone
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

They need to team up with industry to off set the new added cost to install these solar farms by locating them in parking lots doubling as parking cover over cars. Paved areas contribute to a lot of heat anyway and the land is already unavailable for farming and ugly.  Solar Panels could make it be more comfortable and attractive with good design underneath. I have read that some places are already doing this. Industries with parking lots could help offset the cost and in return get energy back to use as well.


There are usually cameras and security already in those areas that could help protect the panels from abuse. We need to this in all developed countries with tons of ugly often too hot, cold, windy or wet parking lots. They would need to  carefully designed cart and walking trails and driving areas that are not a pain and are easy to use so people will stay on and enjoy the people and car spaces and not tear up the supporting structures of the panels.Why not use the land we have already ruined for farming and herding? This is a natural and the land is already cleared of trees.

Gordon McGlone's curator insight, May 17, 9:36 AM

Is stand alone solar PV energy dead in the UK? Has the UK govt concealed its true intention by some sneaky information management?

malek's comment, July 21, 4:04 AM
The snag is, that if no-one wants grid power, those windmills and solar arrays are going to be effectively useless. So stop building them and subsidising them NOW.
Monica S Mcfeeters's comment, July 21, 5:11 AM
Yes, But nobody likes coal or oil lines in their backyard either and that hasn't stop subsidising for them. Black lung and black waters are not very popular either. I do think there is good reason for business and private individuals to off set cost if they can participate in the dividends both in energy use and profits. I would put a solar panel in my yard, or over my vehicles…..But don't ask my to dig a coal mine there.

"These punitive measures are proven to be ineffective, and yet our state chooses to waste tax dollars locking up women instead of getting them the health care they need."
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

All that is required is a positive test to certain drugs to go to prison for assault. Oh, and never mind that some of the worst and most dangerous drugs for the unborn are given under prescription and often are not abused or even addictive.Also most women that have actual addictions would find it very difficult to find well run affordable rehabs even if they wanted to recover. What are your thoughts on this? Who turns the women in? Her own OBGYN doctor? It did not say she even has to have been arrested for anything other than a positive test during pregnancy…Does every women have to get tested? Why isn't dad tested prior to being allowed to have sex? These ideas came to my mind as I read this ….Most anyone thinks women or men using anything like drugs, booze, cigarettes or have poor eating habits should wait to have children till they get everything right….But that might lower the population far too quickly. Would these women be inclined to find a OBGYN or a back alley abortion from someone who would not report them?

Call Congress | Dear FCC, It's Our Internet, and We'll Fight to Protect It

Call Congress | Dear FCC, It's Our Internet, and We'll Fight to Protect It | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it

Members of the House of Representatives are trying to sneak through a dangerous amendment that will strip the FCC of its power to enact meaningful net neutrality. The provision will prevent the FCC from treating the Internet like an essential telecommunications service, thwarting any chance of creating clear rules that would prevent Internet service providers from unfairly discriminating against how we access parts of the Internet, such as creating "fast lanes" for those who can afford them. 

The Representative tacked this amendment on to legislation that otherwise has nothing to do with net neutrality, in the hopes that no one will notice. WE NOTICED. 

We expect the House of Representatives to vote on this today or tomorrow, so we must ACT NOW.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

 Why do you think these powerful people both in governments and large industries are trying every way to get control of the Internet?  The powerful and wealthy know the participation of citizens and consumers that are watchful of what they do could decrease their power and influence and maybe even their wealth. That is why the Internet and the messages and power it holds is a prize worth trying for again and again. The rich and powerful do have access to the Internet like the rest of us and even more so to a degree…but they want it all. They will allow us our e-mail and social networks to a certain degree…But after that they wish to toll gate and control the rest.! They want a fast lane around all the small money massive traffic…. That will at once save them ad money and cut off all that small competition and cause bigger losses to small business and non-profits because it will highly increase their cost. It will also cut down on non-profit watchdogs that inform citizens and consumers of what is going on behind their back in government and industry and get most of them on the slow road people won't want to mess with.

 

We already DO NOT HAVE REPRESENTATIVES THAT REPRESENT ANYTHING OR ONE BUT THOSE WITH BIG MONEY AND WE ALL KNOW IT…if we let them know we are paying attention loud enough they will sometimes do the right thing for a while. We need to get rid of a system that holds on to those that we have to continue to force to listen to us. It is so much work to get them to work for us why do we have them there? This site will likely dial the number for you.

 

Call your representatives!  Now the elected officials in the house intend to take the Commission set up to make sure our interest over our mass communication system is protected and tie the FCC hands behind it's back. There are three revolving door FCC regulators that need to resign or be fired. I would not be surprised if the Chairman of the FCC didn't encourage this after the massive negative response he got to his own plan to hand the WEB over to those with the biggest bucks. The attack to secure the Internet for Big Money Campaign donors is underway on all sides in America. We need honest, strong public servants at the FCC not revolving door industry plants opening doors and regulation to suit those that have in the past or will in the future pay them very, very well in one way or another….We also need to use the laws in place to convict and penalize public servants that allow conflict of interest to color their decisions…whether they be elected, hired or appointed.

 

This is even worse than if a straight military forced Socialist or Communist Government was controlling the internet and the message…Because the fact is it would take both the large industries and the government to pull it off. We are not talking about a Represent Us type government that we thought we had.  That is basically gone if we do not get off our rear ends and start working to get it back. Let those that they are supposed to represent us know we except them to do just that by making direct contact with them and staying informed about what is happening around us…

 

. Internet freedom like all other freedoms is something citizens right now must fight to protect. This matters! Why do you think these powerful people both in governments and large industries are trying every way to get control of the Internet?  It a main line of communication ! It is to get control of us!

Israel-Gaza conflict: 80 per cent of Palestinians killed by Israeli strikes are civilians, UN report says

Israel-Gaza conflict: 80 per cent of Palestinians killed by Israeli strikes are civilians, UN report says | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Almost 80 per cent of Palestinians killed in Gaza by Israeli bombardments have been civilians, the UN has said.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Oddly enough those heard in the tape that was recently leaked of the three kidnaped, then murdered Israel teens were speaking hebrew telling them to get their heads down. The Jews are the only the only people on earth that do not have thieves and murderers in their midst. Obviously killing and injuring some non-Jews is their birthright. Israel has not presented on bit of evidence about who in fact kidnapped and murdered the 3 teens. But I'm pretty sure it was not the babies and primary school kids nor maybe not even any they have killed in retaliation.


One report said mostly combat age young men were killed. The bomb in this image looks like it could take out lots of random people. I doubt that it sniffs out combat age. 


In this day and age does Israel really think bottle rockets, rocks and fire crackers and home made weapons count as combat against theirs which includes everything including nuclear bombs? Even the rocket missiles Iran got in there are shot in the dark type weapons for a group that has no actual army, tanks or fancy rifles and is entrapped in an Israeli hen house so to speak. Maybe the Jews need to now set up training sites for "fast and furious ethnic cleansing".  


Many American Christians in the back of their mind think if they lived in Israel they would be welcomed there. Ask the Christians that once lived there and live there now how lovingly embraced they are.

Time is running out to speak up about Internet ‘toll lanes’ | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Let me offer the following small-business parable:
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:


IT HAS TO BE YOU! OTHERS CAN’T FIGHT THIS WITHOUT YOU! We need an army of citizens to make this happen. Jul 15th is your last official day to speak up. Do call or write even if you miss the date and see this later. Once the Internet is really changed it will be too late unless we build a new one. Call the White House and let them know what you think of losing the equal access internet with real Net Neutrality (not the one Wheeler is planning) and call Tom Wheeler at the FCC if he pushes this fast lane and other bad plans through. Why was he appointed FCC Chairman? He is an industry insider and lobbyist.

 

Call your representatives. It will take a massive number of calls to all these people…They all get large sums of campaign dollars and perks from all the telecoms, cable and ISPs that are set to gain billions and control of the public in ways any dictator in history could have only dreamed of.

 

The internet has given Mom and Pop shops, creative talents and personal expression and connections the biggest hand up in history and that may soon change to the biggest smack down soon if we sit on our hands and wait for others or something to stop it. IT HAS TO BE YOU!

Never mind the 'war on terror' rhetoric, writes Nafeez Ahmed. The purpose of Israel's escalating assault on Gaza is to control the Territory's 1.4 trillion cubic feet of gas - and so keep Palestine poor and weak, gain massive export revenues, and avert its own domestic energy crisis.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Interesting to learn of possible motivations people have for doing things. Would the death of three teens by unknown killers be the motivation for all this kind of destruction and deaths or would 4 billion be a bigger motivation and access to the tiny little piece of ocean Palestine is allow to considered it's own that happens to have that gas below it just might be a greater motivator?

children killed gaza - Google Search | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it

I have to wonder how many Palestinians do three Jewish boys equal? Do you think they have killed the guilty guys yet? Then I realize the Jewish fenced these people so it makes it feel like they are fishing in a stocked pond. One site linked me to these images. These images may not all be from this round of strikes.  I'm sure there would be far more to add to the album at this point. 

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I think it is important to see the effects the recent events in Israel have on all the people involved. I do not buy the idea these people are deliberately putting their children in harms way, I actually haven't read or heard they were….But on earlier occasions I've heard that about other areas where there were children killed in other Arab countries. They blamed it on the children's own families rather than those that fired the weapons. 


These people are in their own homes, in the own towns, where most people agree they should be safe.Frankly the Israelis have made it very difficult to go beyond their walled compound. These are all civilians because while there are rebels among them they have no Army, Navy, Air force or major weapons to fight a country that has fenced them in and also declared war on them with all those things.


They were ordered to evacuate their homes by those that were coming to try to kill them…..OK? How is that supposed to work out?  There are even many Jewish people that find this to be really wrong. Jews may be God's chosen people put even Lucifer, the most beautiful Angel in heaven fell from grace…..What makes the Jewish people think they won't? The women in this culture are mostly house wives and they often have many children if God wills it so.


If Israel thinks the world is turning on them it may not be because the end of times are here. It may be because they are not even trying to be concerned with anyone but themselves and God might be trying to tell them to think of a better way to treat others if they want others to treat and think well of them. Something like "what you do to the least of these you do unto me"….Oh that was Jesus that said that I think. So maybe that explains why they never learned that part of God's message.

‘Jesus is garbage’ graffiti, threat to kill bishop expose anti-Christian sentiment just as Israel prepares to host Pope Francis.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This article discusses a lot about Christian targets for Jewish extremist. It also brings into focus that liberal Jewish people are also becoming targeted as well. What if these three teens killed lately were liberal jewish? No one knows who killed them….The Jewish Government just thought they would start a war over it and get ride of a more unwanted people….They surely will get the killers if Israeli Jews kill everybody they can.


Excerpt:

AFP said that attacks initially targeted Palestinian property in response to Israeli government moves to squelch unauthorized Jewish settlements. The scope has recently grown to what appears to be a full-blown racism against non-Jews.

Some evangelical Arab Christians living in Israel said they believed it was a new development, emerging with price-tag attacks moving from Jerusalem and predominately Palestinian areas up into the Galilee region of northern Israel.

Alex Awad, dean of the Bethlehem Bible College and an Arab Christian, offered this explanation during a CT interview, when Jewish settlers feel their interests are threatened: "They then resort to attacking either Christian or Muslim holy sites. Jewish settlers in the West Bank are becoming stronger and stronger. They are armed." He added, "Certainly they can intimidate the Palestinian population, including the Christian presence in the Holy Land."

They crush freedom of speech by being such big donors. The broadcast that tells the story and influence the Koch's have on policy was not allowed to air on PBS  as planned because PBS takes too much money from the Kochs.


If we  need to learn a lesson here it is to step up with our own funds to support what we want in our lives that might deliver truth or these people will see to it we never know and are under their thumb….Because as libertarians in they think that is where we ought to be and deserve to be.

Funny thing that most of these corporate felons wouldn't hire a human felon to work for them but except to own this country.
