A sudden rise sulphur dioxide (SO2) levels is associated with sudden burning of organic matter including human bodies.

As alway, click on the map below to go straight to the article in it's entirety.

So here's the question, "How likely is it that the Chinese government is lying through their teeth about the extent of the total infections and deaths caused by the Coronavirus?"

Then, of course, there's the next quesion, 'Why would the Chinese government be any different from any other government?"


The 2010 World Corruption Perceptions Index

Submitted by Roanman on Sat, 12/03/2011 - 10:59


Transparency International has released it's 2010 Corruption Perceptions Index.

The results as always are interesting ... at least to us.

One must understand that this index is based on a methodology wherein the "perception" of a nations public sector corruption is measured, rather than some defined measure of corruption itself.

We read through the methodology section and have had very few quibbles and as a result are mostly buying it.

As always click on the map below for TI's complete list.

We would encourage you to spend a minute with Transparency International's fine site as we always find it to be well worth the time.

Among the really good reasons to troll The Heritage Foundation site is that only really, really smart people troll The Heritage Foundation site.

The following quote shows up in the comments of a piece titled "Americans Have Every Reason to Doubt Social Security Solvency"


"The hard fact is that every dime of the $2.5 trillion in surplus Social Security revenue, generated by the 1983 payroll tax hike, has been spent on wars and other government programs.

Every month, for the past 25 years, the total receipts from the payroll tax have been split two ways.

First, benefits for current retirees are paid from the Social Security revenue.

Then, all remaining Social Security revenue, not needed to pay that month’s benefits, are deposited into the general fund and become indistinguishable from other general fund revenue."


Can you say Ponzi Scheme?
