Post Labor Day Wakeup

Now the real work begins.

Well, I’m in Favor of Abolishing Delaware…

[ 0 ] September 7, 2009 |

I’m sure that folks have already seen this:

Farhan Haq told the Swiss News Agency that Libya had submitted the proposal for discussion by the General Assembly. It was thrown out by the committee responsible for setting the assembly’s agenda, since it contradicted the principles of the UN charter.

Swiss parliamentarian Christa Markwalder had told a Swiss public television news programme on Wednesday that Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi intended to present the proposal to the United Nations General Assembly, which he is due to address on September 23.

Gaddafi first mentioned the idea of dismemberment during the G8 summit in Italy in July. Switzerland “is a world mafia and not a state”, he said, adding that it was “formed of an Italian community that should return to Italy, another German community that should return to Germany, and a third French community that should return to France”.

Discuss: What countries should be abolished? I say Austria; it’s just like another little Germany all tucked away down there, and really, does the world need two Germanys?

The NHS and the F-22

[ 0 ] August 20, 2009 |

Some back of the envelope calculations:

  • US public health care spending per capita: ~$3200
  • UK public health care spending per capita: ~$2200
  • Difference between US and UK: ~$1000
  • Number of people in United States: ~300,000,000
  • Number of people multiplied by difference in public health care spending between US and UK: ~$300,000,000,000
  • Cost of an F-22 Raptor: $150,000,000
  • Number of F-22 Raptors we could buy following wholesale adoption of NHS: ~2000
  • Number of F-22 Raptors that the Air Force has wanted in its most soaring flights of fancy: ~650
  • Number that we have right now: ~187
  • Difference between the number that the USAF wanted and the number we have: ~460
  • Amount of money we’d have left over after buying the USAF, say, 500 F-22s: $225,000,000,000

Obama Axes Pentagon Plan To Build Billion Dollar Tank In Shape Of Dragon

What this video doesn’t discuss is the plight of the 95000 workers who will be put on the street by the cancellation of the Dragon Tank. For shame, President Obama. For shame.

I actually know the inventors of this ridiculous product, although I haven’t tried it.

I can’t decide if the possibility they might get very wealthy from this is one of the worst things about capitalism, or one of the best.
