EVER INTREPID, Liberty Net participants braved bad band conditions and used relay techniques and other methods to get around an ionosphere that wouldn’t cooperate this week. The conversations were as interesting and insightful as ever during the current events discussion net moderated by Vic, W1WCR and recorded by Marty, N2IRJ — with multiple live streams and concurrent text chat via N2SAG’s Stickam feed.

Here is a small sampling of some of the provocative topics discussed and debated on the Liberty Net this week (the times indicated show when the respective discussions took place in hours and minutes from the beginning of the recording):
• Would a new home in Africa be a rational solution to the tragic destruction of Haiti by Nature and by its inhabitants? Would transfer to Africa also be viable for displaced African-descended populations in Europe and North America? (37 minutes)
• Military spokesmen state that the pollution and filth in Haiti are so great that the island can be smelled from 50 miles out at sea. (41 minutes)
• The total U.S. aid to Haiti so far — about 100 million dollars — is just equal to Lloyd Blankfein’s bonus this year. Goldman Sachs, Blankfein’s employer, was short selling the very same bogus mortgage-backed securities it was selling to its clients. If that’s not criminal, what is? (46 minutes)
