Welcome to Notes From the Farm.

This will probably be a low volume site for new content. However, I hope it is a high volume site for comments and poll votes. You don't have to register to post comments. In fact I don't accept registration for this site. I will delete off topic and spam comments so this site is not a free for all.

From time to time (probably every two weeks) I will try to present an idea or concept that makes common horse sense. Usually each one will be accompanied by a poll so the general public can vote and even present their comments.

My main goal for this site is to get people to think about a few things in a common sense manner. Even better will be if that thinking style infects the rest of their lives and improves the world as a whole.

Roger Vicker, CCP

 Title:  Climate change and Volcanoes

Current notesThey say that an asteroid caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. The impact threw so much dust into the air that it blocked the sun and the earth cooled.

Recently the Icelandic volcano raised concern that the ash cloud could cause as much as a one degree cooling.

Has any of the climate change scientists compared the temperatures to the volcanic activity over the same time period as they claim they have raised? Perhaps, instead of man causing the reported increase it has been a lack of volcanic activity.

Health Care ReformThere is a loud roar of protest over the government providing a public option alternative to health care insurance.

Part of this protest is over the non-existent (and never was -- go to www.factcheck.org) "Death Board" inclusion in the proposed bill. Another part is that everything the government runs is FUBAR'd in short order.

The solution is for the government to:

1) Establish the minimum policy of what/how is covered.
2) Establish a fixed price for the minimum policy. The government is already doing this type of thing. Look at medicare reimbursement.

Flap. Oink.
When pigs fly :')

If by some end of the world event I became Dictator of the US. I would keep the Senators, Representatives and President in place because:

1) That probably is the most safe place to keep them.
2) I am not that ambitious and will just occasionaly tell them what they will or will not pass.
