Hillary Clinton: ‘My President Is Black’

Fox News on Luda’s Obama Track

Wow, Fox News on their BS again…

White rights enthusiast Sean Hannity has a new black man in his sights, ludacris. Because Ludacris has written some over-the-top lyrics in support of Obama and because Obama has previously expressed a liking for Ludacris, that was proof enough for Hannity that it indicated that Obama is a black radical.

The “N” Word

Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Whoopi Goldberg spar over the “N” word.

Tell that bitch, Whoopi!
“We do live in different worlds, it’s just that way. It is Elisabeth.”

STFU Elisabeth.
What’s with the crying?

De waarde van een Amerikaans leven

De waarde van een Amerikaans leven is ‘vastgesteld’ op $ 6,9 miljoen (€ 4,36 miljoen).
Lees verder om te zien waar deze waarde voor wordt gebruikt…

It’s not just the American dollar that’s losing value. A government agency has decided that an American life isn’t worth what it used to be.

The “value of a statistical life” is $6.9 million in today’s dollars, the Environmental Protection Agency reckoned in May — a drop of nearly $1 million from just five years ago.

The Associated Press discovered the change after a review of cost-benefit analyses over more than a dozen years.

Though it may seem like a harmless bureaucratic recalculation, the devaluation has real consequences.

When drawing up regulations, government agencies put a value on human life and then weigh the costs versus the lifesaving benefits of a proposed rule. The less a life is worth to the government, the less the need for a regulation, such as tighter restrictions on pollution.

Consider, for example, a hypothetical regulation that costs $18 billion to enforce but will prevent 2,500 deaths. At $7.8 million per person (the old figure), the lifesaving benefits outweigh the costs. But at $6.9 million per person, the rule costs more than the lives it saves, so it may not be adopted.

Some environmentalists accuse the Bush administration of changing the value to avoid tougher rules — a charge the EPA denies.

Dan rest natuurlijk de vraag, is er een dergelijke waarde in Nederland vastgesteld?
Zo ja, wat bedraagt deze?


Yesss, your daily dose of Kim Kardashian.

Nas sh*ts on Jesse Jackson

Nas reageert op Jesse Jackson’s uitlatingen over Obama:

Jesse Jackson’s recent comments about Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama aren’t sitting well with many people, Nas included.

On Thursday (July 10), the rapper responded to Jackson’s videotaped whisper on Fox News, when the reverend said, “See, Barack’s been, um, talking down to black people on this faith-based … I want to cut his nuts off.” Nas says the civil-rights leader is finished.

“I think Jesse Jackson, he’s the biggest player hater. His time is up. All you old niggas, time is up. We heard your voice, we saw your marching, we heard your sermons. We don’t wanna hear that shit no more. It’s a new day. It’s a new voice. I’m here now. We don’t need Jesse; I’m here. I got this. We got Barack, we got David Banners and Young Jeezys. We’re the voice now. It’s no more Jesse. Sorry. Goodbye. You ain’t helping nobody in the ‘hood. That’s the bottom line. Goodbye, Jesse. Bye!”

Jackson has since publicly apologized for his crass words, and Obama has accepted the apology.

During the call, Nas also revealed he originally was thinking about lashing out at Jackson and others in song on his new, untitled LP.

“It was like, ‘How bad should I bash Jesse Jackson?’ ” he said about some of his initial thoughts when crafting the project. ” ‘How bad should I go after the corny muthafuckas out here? How do I just stay on my game and kinda ignore some of the shit and get my opinion off?’ It was a lot of ideas of how this could’ve went — real street, real disrespectful, real vulgar. I just wanted to get my shit off.”

When Nas’ album leaked to the Net more than a week ago, many hip-hop fans classified it as another classic in his catalog. Nas responded with a quick, rare video blog saying his music getting out ahead of schedule was “exciting.”

“I think people get too caught up in the leak,” he said. “The leak is inevitable. Everybody leaks. Everybody knows that. You gonna get leaked. It wasn’t that I was just excited about the leak; I was excited about the record finally being out of my hands. It’s finally out of my clutches. It’s finally out in the world. You gotta embrace that. That’s just people hearing music.”

Among the highlights of the leaked material is “Fried Chicken” with Busta Rhymes, on which the MCs compare alluring women to eating chicken and pork; “Make the World Go Round,” featuring cameos from the Game and Chris Brown on the hook; and the tuneful “Breathe,” which finds Nas saying he doesn’t feel free in America.

Invoeren vanuit de VS wordt goedkoper!

AMSTERDAM – Het kopen van internetartikelen in Amerika wordt vanaf 1 december aanmerkelijk goedkoper. Zo kan het voordeel op een iPod 160 Gb oplopen tot €85 inclusief verzendkosten.

Op dit moment profiteren particulieren al van de lage dollar. Maar de douane kan ook invoerrechten, accijns en btw heffen als het product duurder is dan €22. Op 1 december gaat dit drempelbedrag echter omhoog naar €150. Dat is omgerekend 238 dollar. Wie onder dit bedrag blijft, wordt niet aangeslagen.

De Europese Unie heeft deze wijziging van de douanevrijstellingen al op 11 maart doorgevoerd, maar dat is vrijwel iedereen ontgaan. Zelfs de internetbedrijven die zaken doen met de VS, maar ook de Belastingtelefoon/douane weten van niets. Er staat zelfs (nog) geen melding op de website van de douanedienst.

Ofschoon de douane het officieel ontkent, wordt nu al een oogje dichtgeknepen als Nederlanders via internet producten tot 150 euro in de VS of in andere landen bestellen. Mensen die naar een niet-EG-land reizen, kunnen nu voor 175 euro belastingvrij meenemen. Dit drempelbedrag gaat in december omhoog naar 430 euro of 683 dollar.

Er zijn tal van manieren om via internet iets in Amerika te bestellen, maar lang niet alle bedrijven leveren rechtstreeks aan Europa. De makkelijkste manier is om via een Nederlandse tussenpersoon te bestellen. Die rekent wel een provisie van 15%.
