Fisker Technology Shouldn't Go to Chinese, Grassley Says - Bloomberg

Fisker Technology Shouldn't Go to Chinese, Grassley Says - Bloomberg | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Fisker Technology Shouldn't Go to Chinese, Grassley Says
Bloomberg
The technology of Fisker Automotive Inc., the U.S. plug-in hybrid carmaker that owes U.S. taxpayers about $200 million, shouldn't be sold to Chinese companies, U.S.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This curator is not a Grassley fan at all but I do agree with this fully. Why worry about cyber thieves and spys from China as a national security or economic issue if these companies will sale them any trade secret for the "right" price anyway.

HuffPost Live

HuffPost Live is a live-streaming network that attempts to create the most social video experience possible. Viewers are invited to join discussions live as on-air guests. Topics range from politics to pop culture.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here is a fascinating, brief discussion of two religions, religion in general and the reality of God. So many people have died fighting over who is right and who is wrong and which truth is true. It is certainly worth contemplating on many levels and from many points of view what faith and religious beliefs are real and for whom and why. The faithful should not fear that God is too frail to withstand the scrutiny of man's thought.

 

President Obama wrote in his book "Dreams of My Father" as he searched for ways to connect with a father that was never there for him, that basically both of his parents were atheist from what he could understand of them. He was never even remotely close to his father  but was very close to his mother and her atheism according to what he wrote is what lead him to choose Christianity or a least the basic belief in God as real in his life as a constant companion. The Church in Chicago and Michelle likely had more to do with leading him directly to Christianity as his chosen faith. He writes that he chose to believe in God because his mother whom he loved so dearly , admired so much, found so loving and big hearted was to him ultimately and totally "alone" without God. He wrote he did not want to be "alone" and so he chose to invite a relationship and invite the companionship of God and walk with God in his life.

 

The idea Obama expressed through his own experience of his observation of those he thought had God in their life as a constant companion and spiritual leader and those that were ultimately alone in their walk through life without God was a very interesting, reflective, meaningful observation.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Great article for inspiration on how to move forward together. We have little to loose and much to gain if society can make this change. The key is for people to participate in the process and not expect a handful of elected officials and business owners to shape everyone's future without the real, serious, reflective and educated input of those the decisions affect.

Travis Childers hits Thad Cochran on women's pay legislation, campaign spokesman calls it 'election year stunt' | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
JACKSON, Mississippi -- Democratic former U.S. Rep. Travis Childers said Tuesday that if he's elected to the Senate, he will support a bill requiring employers to pay women and men the same amount for doing the same jobs. "I have...
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Excerpt:

Childers is trying to unseat six-term Republican Sen. Thad Cochran in the Nov. 4 general election, and he criticized Cochran for voting to block such a bill. Cochran was among 40 Republican senators who voted Monday against letting the pay bill move forward (http://1.usa.gov/1uEsiQh ). Fifty-two Democrats voted to advance the bill, but they fell short of the 60 votes they needed.

Childers said Tuesday that women's contributions to the family income are as important as men's, and women should be paid equally for the same job. He brought a loaf of bread and a gallon of milk to the news conference and noted that women don't receive discounts on groceries, gasoline or other necessities.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is about Canada but the same issues are happening across the globe. The communications we get or fail to get affect our daily lives. The topics sound boring and easy to tune out....BUT DON"T TUNE THEM OUT! Tuning the issues out now means tuning your voice and control out later. This is actually a very interesting high stakes power play game! Unlike the games we play online and on a field or in a casino this one is a true win for our future if we get up on the game, into the actions and start playing for ourselves. What happens if we lose this media game is critical to our real lives. Citizens can win this if we just tune in rather than out....We can just as easy be the biggest losers if we tune out and sit on our hands waiting for things to work out in our best interest without our attention. These companies are looking out for their bottom line....not ours.


They are simply taking care of business ...We as citizens need to do the same. Don't let them stay mired....give such a huge citizen push back on greed and overreaching that these businesses remember their job is to serve their customers and citizens not rule them. If they can't do that we need to end their privilege to operate, force them to sell off and break up for failing to serve the purpose for which society granted them a license to operate and grant that ability to others companies that know what purpose they are allowed to exist for.
