Darwin’s Hammer: Who Survives an EMP Event?

Posted by in Emergency Preparedness, National Defense, National Security

An EMP would disable the electrical grid in the United States and Canada, appliances, lights, vehicles, medical equipment, portable electronic devices, and nearly all forms of communication for an indefinite period of time.


ZIGGY: WHAT WOULD ROMNEY DO DIFFERENTLY?

Posted by in 2012 Elections, 2012 President, National Defense, National Security

A President Romney would not appease Putinist Russia, sign unequal treaties obligating only the US to cut its nuclear deterrent, give up missile defense deployment plans for no Russian reciprocation, stand silent about Putin’s human rights violations and intimidation of Russia’s Central European neighbors like Poland, or about Russia’s repeated usage of natural gas as a weapon of intimidation.


ZIGGY: DEFENSE SPENDING FOR DUMMIES

Posted by in National Defense, National Security

Check for yourself whether the existing or proposed budget topline (the total size of the defense budget) would be adequate to meet all of the above requirements: to pay for the missions that need to be carried out and for the weapons, units, and training the military will need to carry out those missions and counter our enemies’ current and projected capabilities.


ZIGGY: STOP THE LAW OF THE SEA TREATY!

Posted by in National Defense, National Security

So, folks, go time to roll up our sleeves and start campaigning. Call your Senators, send them emails and tweets, and post messages on their Facebook pages. Be firm, yet polite. Convince them to vote against the LOST. Here’s a list of Senators who do not yet oppose the treaty


ZIGGY: WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SEQUESTRATION?

Posted by in National Defense, National Security

The special interest groups (again, including ATR) who insisted, and continue to insist, that their sacred cows (tax loopholes in ATR’s and similar groups’ case, entitlements in liberal groups’ case) be off the table during any deficit reduction discussions, even though these are the real drivers of America’s deficits and debt and any proposal that doesn’t address them is not serious.


ZIGGY: THE PERSISTENT MYTHS ABOUT SEQUESTRATION

Posted by in New American Feminism

This would totally gut the military and render it completely unable to defend America (not to mention its treaty allies). This also totally disproves Larry Korb’s utterly false claim that a defense budget of $472 bn (which would be a whopping $59 bn smaller than it is today) would “more than sufficient to protect national security”. No, it wouldn’t be. It would be woefully inadequate. Not enough for personnel, operations, maintenance, procurement, R&D, missile defense, health programs, or administration.


MITT’S MESSAGE OF FREEDOM AND VIRTUE

Posted by in 2012 Elections, Capitalism, Conservatism

This is the beauty of Capitalism when it is not corrupted by the outside intervention of extrinsic powers such as government bureaucrats and power-hungry politicians. Humans respond positively when value is returned for value. The incentive, both physical and spiritual, to progress, invent, explore, and find a better way, always follows in a natural process of exchange of value for value. Only individuals can determine what value is of a worth equivalent to the treasures of thought, industry, and love they have to offer.


ZIGGY: SEQUESTRATION WEAKENS AMERICA’S DEFENSES

Posted by in National Defense

The sequester, if allowed to proceed, would cut defense spending WAY too deeply (on top of all the defense cuts already implemented and scheduled, including the $487 bn in defense cuts unveiled by Panetta in January): by $600 bn. In total, the cuts would amount to $1.087 trillion over a decade, not counting the savings resulting from withdrawal from Afghanistan. Such deep cuts would gut the military.
