How the Koch Brothers Are Killing Public Transit Projects Around the Country

How 'Americans for Prosperity' would rather you remain trapped in your neighborhood or loose hours of your day in a snarled traffic jam.

This is how Big Oil will die

That used steel is gonna make some nice bicycles!

"Think about how long a beloved mom and pop store lasts after Walmart moves into town, or how hard we try to “Buy American” when a cheaper option from China emerges."

Self-driving cars will be electric because of cost. And the cost will be so low, oil will not survive.

We'll be away for a while on a scavenging trip in France, Italy & England.

Sad day for public education in the United States. The U.S. House of Representatives has introduced Bill 610. This bill will effectively start a school voucher system to be used by children ages 5 to 17, and starts the de-funding process of public schools.
• The bill will eliminate the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 which is the nation's educational law and provides equal opportunity in education. It is a comprehensive program that covers programs for struggling learners, AP classes, ESL classes, classes for minorities such as Native Americans, Rural Education, Education for the Homeless, School Safety (Gun-Free schools), Monitoring and Compliance and Federal Accountability Programs.
• The bill also abolishes the Nutritional Act of 2012 (No Hungry Kids Act) which provides nutritional standards in school breakfast and lunch. For our most vulnerable, this may be the ONLY nutritious food they have in a day.
The bill has no wording whatsoever protecting special needs kids, no mention of IDEA and FAPE.

•Some things the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESSA) of 1965 does for Children with Disabilities:
-ensures access to the general education curriculum
-ensures access to accommodations on assessments
-ensures concepts of Universal Design for Learning
-includes provisions that require local education agencies to provide evidence-based interventions in schools with consistently under-performing subgroups
-requires states in Title I plans to address how they will improve conditions for learning including reducing incidents of bullying and harassment in schools, overuse of discipline practices and reduce the use of aversive behavioral interventions (such as restraints and seclusion).
• Please call your representative and ask him/her to vote NO on House Bill 610 (HR 610) introduced by rep. Steve King, Ia. 4th, rep. Andy Harris, Md. 1st and rep. Trent Franks, Az. 8th.

Amati pattern 4/4 violin, Mirecourt, ca 1900 | eBay

Just added to our eBay offerings:
Early 20th c. Mirecourt Amati pattern violin labeled "Copie de Iofredus Cappa fecit anno 1640" most likely from the Laberte workshop.
Fresh setup by Claire Ryder Lutherie after having been unplayed for 40ish years.
We're having a great time playing this fiddle in again, but it really needs a good home.

Cappa, a student of the Amatis, was maker of the Turin school turn of the 16th/17th century. This Amati pattern honors his memory and the label appears in both the JTL & Laberte catalogs at the beginning of the 20th century. | eBay!

Congress: Create a federal tax deduction for bicycle mileage

Here's a sound proposal to consider on Change dot org. Add your support for a federal income tax deduction on bicycle mileage.

https://www.change.org/p/congress-create-a-federal-tax-deduction-for-bicycle-mileage

The U.S. federal tax code permits taxpayers to take a deduction for each mile driven in a car for work related purposes (described here ). Let's provide the same deduction (at a lower rate) for people who ride bicycles for work related purposes. Creating this bicycle mileage tax deduction would...
