This is ridiculous, the frequency of the tornadic activity is closing down function in the area.

There are factory workers taking shelter under buildings in order to protect their lives. 

...Tornado watches and warnings (click title to entry - thank you) were issued across the Southeast and into the Northeast.
In North Carolina, at least 11 people were hurt by the winds that destroyed Corona's home, but none seriously.
"We just thank God that everyone is safe," said Corona, who had some cuts on her leg....

People are cut and injured and stating they are SAFE.  There are dearly few people in the area that are safe.  They are ducking funnel clouds from minute to minute.  Human Induced Global Warming.  It could have been avoided.

The area should be evacuated.  This is day two.  It is just that bad.

Le't's see, how much interest does one trillion US earn? What will that add to my bonus now that the company doesn't owe the USA Treasury that money?

So. The bailout was real nice for Wall Street. Real nice. But, the country that bailed them out can go to hell in a hand basket evidently



Like what?  





One dollar chrome printing plate

A one dollar chrome printing plate. US companies are hoarding nearly one trillion dollars of cash that they are unlikely to use for expansion amid a muddled outlook on economic recovery, rating agency Moody's said Wednesday

...Companies cut costs,((click title to entry - thank you)  reduced investment in plants and equipment and downsized operations in order to boost cash holdings during the recession. As the corporate bond market reopened many companies also boosted cash levels by selling debt and refinancing near-term debt maturities.
Nonfinancial U.S. companies are sitting on $943 billion of cash and short-term investments, as of mid-year 2010, compared with $775 billion at the end of 2008, Moody's said. This would be enough to cover a year's worth of capital spending and dividends and still have $121 billion left over, it said....

I believe it was Mr. Boehner that stated, " is like trying to kill an ant with an atomic bomb."  


Is it no wonder why the plutocrats are investing so heavy in the Repubicans?

CORRUPTION with a "Capital C."

Gee whiz the obstructionists are all to clear now.  And President Obama being the gentleman he is stated something like, "...the newly elected Republicans will want to prove they can make a difference and will be anxious to cooperate with legislation when they are inaugurated."  Why do I believe that is terribly naive of the President.  The truth is that the Republicans only seek to make things as difficult as possible to show the nation how much they have to accept their fate !

I found this picture to be curious. It was on Yahoo. It might be an under cover police officer, but, there is no way of knowing that.

 I realize there are all kinds of amateur and not so amateur news people that are scavenging for traces of some kind of information.  But, I like the idea of having a residence under camera survellance after an arrest like this.

Unidentified man leave home of Farooque Ahmed (click here)

An unidentified man leave the home of Farooque Ahmed in Ashburn, Va., Wednesday, Oct. 27. 2010. Ahmed, a naturalized citizen born in Pakistan was arrested Wednesday and charged with trying to help people posing as al-Qaida operatives planning to bomb subway stations around the nation's capital, the FBI said.

Another wacko caught up in some kind of spiritual funk.

Metro officials say that neither riders nor employees were in danger while federal officials investigated a plot by a Virginia man to carry out a series of terrorist bombings at stations.
In a news release Wednesday, Metro officials said the FBI was aware of the activities of Farooque Ahmed, 34, of Ashburn, before the alleged attempt began and closely monitored him until his arrest.
The planned attack was not imminent, sources said.
