Liberty on Tap:  Clearing the air -- Vote YES on SQ788

I read Michael Bates’s latest blog post encouraging people to vote no on SQ788 and was struck by his account of a local doctor’s opinion on State Question 788. It’s as if the doctor whom he cites has gotten his information from “Everything You Need to Know About THC” by James Lankford. If Mr. Bates is accurate that this doctor truly believes that ALL of the health benefits of cannabis are currently available in full spectrum hemp oil [which he apparently sells out of his clinic], without the side effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive substance found in marijuana, then the doctor is deficient in facts or Mr. Bates has misunderstood the doctor.

It’s true that “full spectrum hemp oil” has beneficial qualities, but it only scratches the surface. THC is also an important compound. The problem we have now in Oklahoma is that the legal amount of THC in our state (less than three-tenths of one percent) is simply not adequate in the treatment of many diseases. People with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Tourette syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, and Epilepsy need access to higher levels of THC. For gastrointestinal disorders like Crohn’s, THC is crucial for healing.

R3publicans:  The sun is blank, NASA data shows it to be dimming

Anthony Watts / December 15, 2017

As the sun gets successively more blank with each day, due to lack of sunspots, it is also dimming. According to data from NASA’s Spaceweather, so far in 2017, 96 days (27%) of the days observing the sun have been without sunspots. Here is the view today from the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory satellite:

Today at Cape Canaveral, SpaceX launched a new sensor to the International Space Station named TSIS-1. Its mission: to measure the dimming of the sun’s irradiance. It will replace the aging SORCE spacecraft. NASA SDO reports that as the sunspot cycle plunges toward its 11-year minimum, NASA satellites are tracking a decline in total solar irradiance (TSI).

R3publicans: Politicians Start to Turn Away from Global Warming

Posted Sep 27, 2017 by Martin Armstrong

Politicians have been confronted with the real cost of their support for global warming. France has suddenly come out in support of diesel because of the jobs that could be lost. The diesel crisis may have started in Germany, but there are more diesel car owners in Europe as a whole.

R3publicans: ADA Untroubled By Yet Another Study Pointing To Fluoride’s Negative Health Impacts

Fluoridation was sold to Americans by none other than the father of public relations himself, Edward Bernays — a nephew of Sigmund Freud, who applied his uncle’s ideas on psychological persuasion for the benefit of industry and government propaganda.

by Whitney Webb

For decades, many groups have fought against the inclusion of fluoride in publicly supplied water, arguing that the risks of mass fluoride consumption outweigh the purported benefits. Now, a new study published in Environmental Health Perspectives has added to the scientific literature that suggests that fluoride negatively impacts human intelligence, especially in children and infants.

The study, surprisingly, was widely reported in the U.S. mainstream media despite the fact that its findings contradict the government’s official position regarding the safety of fluoride.

R3publicans: Can someone show us a climate prediction that has ever come true?

By Jack Hellner

It’s another day, and we get a new story about how dire the climate threat is and that it is unambiguous that humans are a significant cause.

What is rarely noted in these articles is actual facts that support the theory. I would love to see actual temperature data for each decade for the last 150 years, including where the measuring stations are located. It would be especially interesting to see rural data where cement and asphalt don’t inflate the temperature. It should also always be noted that a “Little Ice Age” ended in 1715 and that some warming would be normal.

R3publicans: Google’s New Search Protocol Is Restricting Access to 13 Leading Socialist, Progressive and Anti-War Web Sites

ANDRE DAMON AND DAVID NORTH • AUGUST 4, 2017 • 1,600 WORDS

New data compiled by the World Socialist Web Site, with the assistance of other Internet-based news outlets and search technology experts, proves that a massive loss of readership observed by socialist, anti-war and progressive web sites over the past three months has been caused by a cumulative 45 percent decrease in traffic from Google searches.

R3publicans/Time: Solar Eclipse Simulation – Plug in your Zip Code and View Timeline

The 2017 total solar eclipse is fast approaching, and hordes of sky gazers are scrambling to find a spot where they can see the shadow of the moon completely obscure the sun for a few moments on Aug. 21.
There’s technically plenty of room for every American to pack into the narrow zone from Oregon to South Carolina where the total blackout will occur, shown on this eclipse map. But most of the country will be moored in a place where they will see only a partial eclipse, which occurs when the moon will block anywhere from nearly the entire sun to just a slice of it.

So we decided to create a simulation of the eclipse (above) that shows a view of the sky from any location in the U.S., allowing you to see what the eclipse will look like from anywhere. Here’s what it will look like from Goreville, Illinois, a town of 1,067 lucky people where the eclipse will last for the longest period, over two-and-a-half minutes:

Marine Corps Wants Smart Trucks That Can Pretty Much Repair Themselves

Posted By: Hope Hodge Seck July 6, 2017

In the not-too-distant future, Marine Corps 7-ton trucks may be able to diagnose worn-out parts before they go bad, put in an order for a relevant replacement and get the part 3D printed and shipped to their location to be installed — all without a human in the loop.
