The US coal exports hit an ALL TIME high last month:
"Coal exports from the United States in March 2013 totaled 13.6 million short tons, nearly 0.9 million short tons above the previous monthly export peak in June 2012. EIA is projecting a third straight year of more than 100 million short tons of coal exports in 2013, following annual exports in 2011 of 107.3 million short tons and record annual exports in 2012 of 125.7 million short tons. "
There's no war on coal. There IS a war on coal pollution in the US but apparently not in China, YET.posted @ Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 11:11

"The Ludwig von Mises Institute (LvMI), or simply "Mises Institute", located in Auburn, Alabama, is an American organization named for Austrian School economist Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973). Its website states that it is "the world center of the Austrian School of economics and libertarian political and social theory," and that it is dedicated to advancing "the Misesian tradition of thought through the defense of the market economy, private property, sound money, and peaceful international relations, while opposing government intervention.""posted @ Monday, June 17, 2013 - 16:52

A much better idea is to lower the parking fees in the often unused parking decks and double or triple the fee for street parking.
People who work downtown, or those with a limited budget, will park in the decks and paying customers with bulging wallets will park on the street close to the shops in the now available parking spaces.
No capital expense, no kick backs from parking meter vendors. Or does ADDA have a problem with that?posted @ Friday, June 14, 2013 - 08:03

[quote][b]Long Sufferer[/b] - Just a question mpd old boy. How many people who have live here their whole life or have actually become Americans don't speak much English?
During the 50s and 60s in a Rust Belt city where I grew up, many, many people only spoke Italian, Polish, Ukrainian, Spanish, and a half dozen other languages. All of these people were legal residents who immigrated here after WWII. Most became citizens later.
Growing up in such a mixed community has made me tolerant of the customs of others.

As someone way up on the first page said, you've never had privacy on electronic communications. That goes back to when there were party lines and a switchboard operator. And when the internet just started up, BEFORE the world wide web, the NSA was reading every bit of email and forum postings.
The ONLY right anyone has ever had was that ANY INFORMATION gathered without a court ordered wiretap could NOT be used in a court of law as evidence.
Wake up, folks. If you put it on an electronic device, someone will read it or listen to it, after a super computer tells him it's interesting and requires human judgment, but that, too, will change as computers get smarter.
If you want privacy, whisper it in a room with water running and never commit it to the electronic media.posted @ Thursday, June 6, 2013 - 18:39

As a huge Backstreet Boys fan, I was little perplexed on reading Nick Carter?s book. It?s not like reading a book about Elvis Presley or The Beatles. I didn?t live through those moments. I didn?t see them in person. But as someone who has followed Nick?s career since I became a fan in 1998, not just in the Backstreet Boys, but as a solo artist, I?ve always thought we had a lot in common besides being the same age. read more
The Athens Banner-Herald sports staff combined to win 11 individual awards on Sunday at the Georgia Sports Writers Association's annual meeting in Marietta. You can get a few more details on that in this story ? "Banner-Herald sports staff wins 11 awards" ? and I thought I'd provide some links to the winning stories for the curious. The awards were for the sports staff's work in 2012. read more
