Ron Paul Supporter Sues NV GOP

RGJ.com: Inside Nevada Politics

Wayne Terhune filed a 20 page lawsuit seeking to prevent the Nevada Republican Party from "phoning in" their appointed delegates to the National Convention during a planned conference call. Terhune is joined by 27 other plaintiffs, according to Anjeanette Damon of the Reno-Gazette Journal.

The complaint accuses the party of mismanaging the April 26 state convention and seeking to usurp the delegates' right to elect a slate to the national convention in Minneapolis. It also criticizes state Sen. Bob Beers, the original convention chair, calling him "clearly not neutral" and "clearly unqualified."

Terhune accuses the party of acting "intentionally to bring this about once they realized the results of the voting...would not go as (they) planned."

"At very least, defendants acted with reckless disregard for established law and rules," the lawsuit states.
Ah, the Republicans, too, have to deal with these sudden outbreaks of democracy. And while Ron Paul has withdrawn from the race, apparently The Revolution Continues.

Energy 2.0

Silicon Valley is experimenting with bacteria that have been genetically altered to provide 'renewable petroleum'
“Ten years ago I could never have imagined I’d be doing this,” says Greg Pal, 33, a former software executive, as he squints into the late afternoon Californian sun. “I mean, this is essentially agriculture, right? But the people I talk to – especially the ones coming out of business school – this is the one hot area everyone wants to get into.”
Mr Pal is a senior director of LS9, one of several companies in or near Silicon Valley that have spurned traditional high-tech activities such as software and networking and embarked instead on an extraordinary race to make $140-a-barrel oil (£70) from Saudi Arabia obsolete. “All of us here – everyone in this company and in this industry, are aware of the urgency,” Mr Pal says.

Energy 2.0 will do for us what the web has already done - decentralize energy production to the point where two or three giant firms cannot even envision controlling the energy markets.
