There have been countless media reports, blog posts, Facebook discussions, and dinner table debates around who was to blame and how to prevent another incident like this and the many that have come before it. The unfortunate truth is that attacks like these will…Continue
Here's a few images for you to check out. What mighty city is this that needs such a show of force? Lansing MI, with a population of 114,000, is apparently under siege by the populace.

The presidential race is about to get started, but not much in the way of fireworks yet. Until Romney picks his running mate, for the most part I'm going to ignore. Last week we looked at old, washed-up, has been Ted Nugent, who Romney actively sought support from. The…Continue

Welcome to this week's edition of "The Weekly Planet." This week besides the usual topics I'll be adding education into the mix since that ties in with the global unrest and world wide protests. Education will be a recurring topic, as it should be, since an uneducated populace is an easily controlled…Continue
What images does this word conjure. Do you think about camping in a secluded, pristine part of the country?
