Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Feels Like the Deer In the Headlights.

Nobody’s Opinion

If I had to pick a word for the 21st century, there is only one word that I can think of that sticks out—Surival Guide

Survival.

We hear it every day: Survive the next market crash: Buy Gold. Survive ‘climate change’: Get solar power for your house: Survive Obamacare: Get a colonoscopy. Survive a car crash: Buckle your seat beat. Survive your mother-in-law’s Sunday dinner: (I’ll get back to you on that one.)

My first lesson in survival was how to fend off an older brother, who loved to pin me down. He would sit on my stomach, pin my arms down with his legs, and slap my face, all the while laughing…until I learned how to wrap my legs around his neck and slam him back, and then kick hard. (I love my brother!)

Most people have the misconception— mostly from seeing movies, that people panic during a time for survival, but that’s not true: Most people…freeze. They shut down. Clueless. Even animals pretend to be dead.

Nobody Thinks that right now, a whole nation is staring at the corruption in Washington like deer with headlights in our eyes: We are just frozen. What do we do?

It’s just second nature, but that can literally get you killed.deer in headlights

Last year, I was about to throw away my childhood book on Robinson Crusoe, so I read it for the second time, and the lessons in it were clear: prepare. Prepare for next year…prepare for the worst.

Prepare, prepare, and then prepare some more.

Too bad they don’t teach that very valuable lesson in school. How many of us are prepared for what’s coming? I know I’m not. I just never DREAMED that the America I knew would ever end.

But back to Robinson Crusoe, who was stranded on an island, and he not only survived, he could have supported a whole town, he was such an excellent planner.

Survival is the nature of every man, woman, mammal, fish, and insect on the planet. Forget the “why are we here? Waste of time, It’s mainly to survive, until we die, isn’t it?Robinson Crusoe

And SINCE man is suppose to the superior King of the apes, you would think a simple thing like making sure your nation survives, would be a piece of cake. History shows…it’s really not.

Our piece of cake is turning into soup kitchen gumbo.

We are being invaded from the South, for people who want to ‘survive” and all due to the fact that the only survival instinct going on in Washington is how to keep their own butts forever swimming in the laps of luxury.

Too bad we don’t have a man like Rick Rescorla for President.

Who is he you might ask?

Rick Rescorla, saved 2,687 employees of the Morgan Stanley, on 9/11, and I just heard about him.

Rick Rescorla was born in England, and joined the U.S. military because he wanted to fight the communists in Vietnam. He won a Silver Star, a Bronze Star and a Purple heart and was memorialized in the 1992 book, We Were Soldiers…and Young.

He was the head of security for Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, whose offices were in Tower 2. He expected an attack, because in 1990 he and an old war buddy wrote a report to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (which owns the Trade Center Site) on the need for more security in the parking garage.

They were ignored. Three years later Ramzi Yousef drove a truck full of explosives, and Bill Clinton acted as if it was just a ‘prank.’ That’s when Rick knew, you did NOT trust your government.Rick Rescorla

Because Rick knew it was coming he prepared everyone. He ordered everyone NOT to listen to the Port Authority in a real emergency. If you remember, the Port Authority told everyone to STAY in their places.

REALLY bad advice.

From Time, June, 2008:

“The radicalism of Rescorla’s drills cannot be overstated. Remember, Morgan Staley is an investment bank. Millionaire, high performance bankers on the 73red floor did not appreciate the interruption. Each drill, which pulled brokers off their pens and away from their computers, cost the company money. But Rescorlas did it anyway. His military training had taught him a simple rule of human nature The best way to get the brain to perform under extreme stress is to rapidly run it though rehearsals beforehand.

He even started timing them, and improving their time.

When 9/11 came, everyone knew what to do. They were on their way down the stairs, and on the 44th floor when the second plane hit, this time striking 38 floors above them.

“Stop.” Rescorla ordered through his bullhorn. “Be still. Be calm.” And then he started singing into the bullhorn, while people stayed quiet:

“Men of Cornwall stand ye steady. It cannot be easy said ye for the battle were not ready.”

Rick got everyone out. Only 13, including Rescorla and four of his security officers were inside.

He was last seen on the 10th floor heading up. His body was never found.

So, this deer is asking—How do we survive Obama? How do we survive the upcoming invasion on our borders, which will bring a new strain of TB? Do I have to start wearing masks to Wal-Mart?

How DO we survive Obamacare, which will condemn millions to death…waiting to get into a doctor?Forward

Rick Rescorla and Robinson Crusoe would tell us. WAKE UP.. MOVE. Prepare…..

Think of every worse case scenario and start now.

The only thing our politicians are preparing for is millions of angry citizens. They have not prepared this country for even a sun flare, let alone an invasion.

They are only preparing for themselves and their friends.

Too bad we can’t throw them all into Robinson’s Crusoe’s Island for a month.

Nobody Knows: Sign-up Numbers, Earthquakes, Putin, Wall Street, and Fake Camels

Nobody Knowsobama care scare

It’s been another week of great mysteries—which included why would ANYONE tell Joe Biden that he has the best looking facial skin in the world on National TV?….Let’s get started:


Nobody Knows: Today Obama took a big victory speech at the White House, which was more than annoying, it was silly. According to him, Obamacare signed up 7 million people  …and he laughed with his big silly grin when he proclaimed there WERE no death panels!

(What? Do you think he’s stupid? Technically, he’s right. You will die when you are refused care, it’s already written into the law.)

This is, of course all baloney, because Obama lied about Benghazi, he lied about everyone keeping their doctor, he lied about Fast and Furious, he lied about Buddy Love, and Reverend Wright and…when doesn’t he lie?

When he’s sleeping.

It’s being said that Obama has spiked the football once again by fudging the numbers, because Obamacare is all about force. The biggest lie is that those people are going to get “affordable” health care.

The moon will disappear from the sky before THAT happens.


Nobody Knows what caused the earthquakes in California and Yellowstone last week, but some are suggesting the Kim Jung Un was detonating nuclear bombs under the ocean for fun because North Korea had one too, so maybe that fault line is getting a bit of a push from Kim Jung. (Update: Another one–8.2 off of Chile)

And that’s not all we don’t know. The great lover of redheaded basketball players decided to shut off some rounds of fire at South Korea:Kim Jong Un

“North Korea fired 500 rounds of artillery shells over more than three hours, about 100 of which fell south of the sea boundary, South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok said. South Korea responded by firing 300 shells into North Korean waters.”

Since Obama has made sure that we can fight only one war at a time, if Kim Jung tries to invade South Korea, at the same time that Putin is invading Europe, what ‘war’ will Obama decide to fight?

(HINT: The war on the 18th hole. )

Nobody Knows, but we DO know that both Obama and John Kerry will declare that “This is just not how any state should act in the 21st century.” assuring the world that they—can look important saying absolutely ridiculous things. .

And speaking of Putin…


Nobody Knows why we have stopped talking about Putin? Which country will Putin go for next? According to a guy who used to work for him, he has a BIG list:

“Parts of Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic States and Finland are states where Putin claims to have ownership. “It is not on Putin’s agenda today or tomorrow,” Illarionov said. “But if Putin is not stopped, the issue will be brought sooner or later. Putin has said several times that the Bolsheviks and Communists made big mistakes. “

Nobody Knows if someday, some future President of the United States will say: Obama made some big mistakes..”  referring to Putin taking back Alaska and Mexico taking Putin with binnosback half the country.

And speaking of taking back half the country….


Nobody Knows if Obama learned to spike the football from the big bankers on Wall Street. It was reported on 60 minutes this week that SOMEBODY spent $350 million on a super cable network on Wall Street–basically rigging the stock market for a few select people. These computers were just a few milliseconds faster, but it was enough to rip billions of dollar off of investors: (see video) by Michael Lewis.

Michael Lewis is not talking about the stock market that you see on television every day. That ceased to be the center of U.S. financial activity years ago, and exists today mostly as a photo-op. This is the stock market that Lewis is talking about; the one where most of the trades take place now, inside hundreds of thousands of these black boxes located at more than 60 public and private exchanges, where billions of dollars in stock change hands every day with little or no public documentation. The trades are being made by thousands of robot computers, programmed to buy and sell every stock on the market at speeds 100 times faster than you can blink an eye. A system so complex, it’s all but invisible.

Michael Lewis: “The insiders are able to move faster than you. They’re able to see your order and play it against other orders in ways that you don’t understand. They’re able to front run your order. From Brad Katsuyama’s point of view, when he heard they were willing to spend that kind of money for milliseconds it told him the sums involved were vast. That was one of the first questions he said he had. He says, “All right, I’m getting ripped off. Everybody’s getting ripped off. But what does it add up to?” And I think when he heard the story of Spread Networks, he realized this is tens of billions of dollars we’re talking about.Wall Street rigged

Add to that:

American companies have stockpiled nearly a trillion dollars of cash offshore to avoid paying higher tax bills at home, according to an analysis released on Monday.

And last but not least…Nobody Knows whose bright idea it was to put a $400,000 glass camel (courtesy of the American taxpayers) in front of the Pakistan American embassy.

Nobody Wonders just how many days it will be before someone throws a rock at it.glass camel

Shall we take bets?

If anyone has any answers to these questions, or any other great mysteries of the universe, like what moisturizer Joe Biden uses—-please email Rachel Ray.

Nobody’s Perfect: Lost Plane VS Lost Penis

Nobody’s Perfect:

I hate to make the comparison today, but it remains to be said: there are two missing items in the world, and finding them is of the upmost importance;

First, Malaysia is missing a Boeing 777. Not exactly a hard thing to lose, but lost it they have. In fact the whole world is out trying to find flight 370, because there were about 239 people on it. And it’s been a wild goose chase. Six days, and 10 nations using 56 surface ships have been running all over the oceans trying to find it. boeing 777

First it was here. then over there, then…well..where did it go? China thought they spotted it, but no. Then got mad and said everyone should coordinate.

Daily Mail: A Malaysia Airlines plane was sending signals to a satellite for four hours after the aircraft went missing, which means it could have flown a thousand miles from its last known location, according to officials.
U.S. sources have revealed that the plane, which lost contact with ground control at 1.07am on March 8, was in fact still in contact with satellites operated by Boeing. Experts suggest the way communications systems were shut down mean the plane was shut down ‘deliberately’ and ‘systematically’

(My first nobody thought was: Mmmmm, two Muslim pilots…maybe Allah called them at a very inopportune moment. But right from the start, we must NOT suspect these pilots because they were…experienced.)

Insinuating that only an inexperienced pilots would hide a plane. Of course, Farig Abdul Hamid, (one of the pilots) was a “good boy” and was always at the mosque, and had a flight simulator at home, and has been known to let a pretty face into the cockpit.

Must be nice. They said the same thing about Ted Bundy.

Nevertheless the plane remains lost.

NOT missing penis man…but close enough.

The other item lost, was…a penis.

Police in the United Kingdom reportedly shut down part of a busy motorway in Middlesbrough, England, Thursday to search for a man’s missing penis

Yes, the poor guy was sitting on the side of the road, and somebody had…well, cut it off and tossed it. They induce the man into a coma…and for good reason.

The penis has not been found.

Really, I can’t have a Nobody’s Perfect contest this week on this one, although I think that 229 people losing their lives is a heck of a lot worse than a man losing his penis. I was supposed to do this column on MONDAY night, and I forgot the day, so it’s only fair that I give the guy some slack.

Nobody’s Perfect. :)

Hopefully, someone will donate a penis to the guy so that when he wakes up, he can go on living some kid of normal life.

And hopefully, that plane isn’t sitting on some island somewhere, filling up for a new takeoff…

They may never find this plane…or they already have, and they don’t want ANYONE to know what happened.

My guess, is that’s the real story…the real truth…has been lost.

Mayor Nagin: Mayor Reed—Emergency Experts

Nobody Wins

The city of Atlanta was hit with a major ice storm yesterday, hundreds of people were stranded on highways and schools for more than 23 hours… and it’s no surprise that the Democratic mayor–did nothing.

The result was gridlock on freeways that are jammed even on normal days. Countless vehicles were stranded and many of them abandoned. Officials said 239 children spent Tuesday night aboard school buses; thousands of others stayed overnight in their schools.

One woman’s 12-mile commute home took 16 hours. Another woman gave birth while stuck in traffic; police arrived just in time to help. Drivers who gave up trying to get home took shelter at fire stations, churches and grocery stores.traffic jam

CNN did a good job drilling Mayor Reed on WHY he did nothing, but notice how good he is at passing the blame: It was the teacher’s fault. This morning–they were blaming the weatherman–because George Bush wasn’t around. Yes, it’s got to be rough when your President is a democrat and you are the mayor of a big city, and you can’t blame the President when you &$% up and your own citizens are mad at you.

But…guess what? Remember when the Mayor of New Orleans blamed President George W. Bush for Katrina?

Ray Nagin rose to American political fame in swift, albeit uncensored, fashion — as the New Orleans mayor who publicly trashed and pleaded with President George W. Bush to save his city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  “Flying over in Air Force One doesn’t do it justice,” Nagin said during a radio interview a few days after the storm hit on Aug. 29, 2005. 

Then the photo came out, of George flying over New Orleans and not even landing. Why, he should have sent in the 45th battalion! They never got over it, and to this day, President George W. Bush is blamed for the misery suffered after Katrina. But…it wasn’t his fault. He was actually following the law. By our Constitution, if you have a disaster in your city, it’s the Mayor and the Governor of that state that are responsible to handle it. The Federal government can only come in when ASKED. And nobody asked the President for DAYS.GB over New Orleans

Nobody Thinks that was because Nagin really messed up big time…the democrats manipulated it so that the President would be blamed, instead of the mayor.

When does a democrat NOT blame a republican for something that they do?

Wal-Mart came to the rescue when Mayor Nagin was sitting around bitching about everything. But that’s democrats. Nagin was such a crook. He is just now being persecuted for what he did during the time of Katrina. (READ ABOUT THAT HERE)

President George W. Bush did right by not landing…he really was thinking of the people. The whole apparatus of Air Force One would have been a headache at the time when people didn’t need one. Nevertheless…that didn’t stop Obama from landing In New Jersey and getting his photo-op with Chris Christie while he made all kinds of promises those suffering people after Hurricane Sandy—-

Which of course, were all lies.

The CNN reporter is right: It was the mayor’s fault. He should have salted those roads. Atlanta is not doing too good financially, and if Kasim is anything like Nagin, who knows what corruption he is in? As for the democratic governor, Nathan Deal?

Around the time the traffic jam started, Deal and Reed were at an award ceremony recognizing the mayor as the “2014 Georgian of the Year.” Deal spokesman Brian Robinson said the governor left before 1:30 p.m. and was in constant contact with emergency officials.

Nevertheless: It’s already been suggested that the small communities cannot handle things at all. All power should just be put in the hands of the President.  I actually heard that on CNN. They can’t blame George Bush, so they are going to do the next best thing: Take all power away from the states and put that power in the hands of Obama.

Nobody Wins when democrats run the country.

So whatever happened to Nagin? He’s going to court:

Mayor nagin

The indictment states Nagin accepted more than $160,000 in bribes and truckloads of free granite for his family business in exchange for promoting the interests of businessman Frank Fradella — who secured millions of dollars in city contract work after the hurricane. The hurricane and its aftermath killed roughly 1,800 people and cost an estimated $108 billion.

Nagin moved to Dallas after leaving office and founded CRN Initiatives LLC, which specializes in publishing, public speaking and emergency preparedness.

You cannot make this stuff up.

“Unleashing Hell” ?

Nobody’s Opinion

Last April, when my street was hit by an F-1 tornado, I really WAS surprised to see it mentioned on National TV. After all, nobody was killed. I realized that disasters are real gems to news stations because of the ratings that they generate, but I have noticed that all the fires out West, really don’t get the coverage they deserve.  I also remember how fires were kind of ignored when Bill Clinton was President. It seems, for most of my life, I really don’t remember the huge fires that we started getting, that is, not until Bill Clinton became President. Overnight, it seems at least in one year of his Presidency, the whole WEST was on fire.Forest fire burning out of control in a pine forest on the Mesca

They acted as if it was just another news day. Most of the time, nobody knows who started the fire, and the reporters just get everyone guessing, then it’s forgotten until the next fire. For instance, the recent fire that killed those 19 firemen, did you ever hear who STARTED the fire?

I didn’t. Not important I guess.

This summer we watched as the Black Forest fire in Colorado burnt down 346 houses and killed two. And they are expecting more.

Wildfires are chewing through twice as many acres per year on average in the United States compared with 40 years ago, U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell told a Senate hearing last month. Since Jan. 1, 2000, about 145,000 square miles have burned, roughly the size of New York, New England, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland combined, according to federal records.

Like many Americans, I thought something was up. When I was 16, I remember temperatures of 115 were quite normal for Arizona, and yet, there were just not that many fires. Fires just don’t start up because the bushes are dry.
While Al Gore and the global warming experts are quick to tell you that the fires are due to global warming, I think, (and Carl Sagan would agree) that we should consider the more obvious explanation for all these fires: Many—and I’ll take a wild guess and say at least half of these fires, are being set by terrorists. (Remember, that’s an opinion.) Recently, the Muslim Magazine “Inspired” which was “inspired” by that very dead New Mexican fellow named Anwar al-Awlak, is giving instructions on just HOW to start a forest fire in America, and why you should do it.Anwar al-Awlaki

‘Unleash Hell’: New Al Qaeda magazine describes in detail how to start huge forest fires across the U.S..with instructions on how to make ‘ember bombs’ Al Qaeda has called upon its followers to unleash massive forest fires upon the United States this summer. Published in the latest edition of the notorious terror magazine, ‘Inspire’, are graphic instructions for the creation and ignition of ‘ember bombs’ Detailed in the memorably titled, ‘It is of your Freedom to Ignite a Firebomb’, the magazine encourages any would-be terrorist to target Montana, because of the rapid population growth in its wooded areas.

Nobody Thinks that Muslims (and other illegal’s and lowlifes) have been setting forest fires in the West for quite some time now. It’s just another little dirty secret that our “government ” doesn’t think we need to know, because then we would be REALLY mad. So…they just don’t discuss it much. In fact…they don’t discuss it at all. When was the last time you heard John McCain say, “We have really got to get a grip on these forest fires!” ?

What we could be safe in saying, is that ‘disasters” in America are becoming the norm, and while the car companies, are being able to say that their sales are “booming”, and the housing industry is picking up… it might not be because Americans really wanted to buy new cars and build new houses…

It’s because they HAD to. That’s one way to keep an economy going!

(Nobody says: Was that a joke?) What isn’t a joke is that due to my own curiosity, I wanted to visit the site of the magazine to see it for myself: But the FBI would visit me, so I didn’t. I’m SURE the FBI didn’t even have to visit the site to know how to make a fire bomb, and they say they want to keep the site up to track all it’s visitors.

Okay. I’m chasing my own tail here.

So, if you happen to live out west, and see Muslims camping in the park, and they tell you they love nature and want to see some bears.  Don’t report them to the FBI. Go tell your local sheriff.

It’s All About the Weather: Or Fry Your Bacon Now

Nobody’s Opinion:

Last Friday night, I was cooking dinner and watching Sheppard Smith on FOX NEWS talking to a storm chaser in Oklahoma. The TV screen looked…green. The whole Oklahoma skyline looked… green. I was wondering if some technician somewhere added some “green” just to make it look even scarier. Oklahoma

I would have added the wicked Witch of the West zooming through the clouds on her broom for the kids, but that’s why I don’t work for a TV station.

No detail is too small when it comes to the entertainment of the masses. And THIS tornado had become the most exciting thing that had happened since the LAST tornado that ‘President’ Obama has already forgot. He no doubt thought this happened in Madison.

They had great camera shots of it. This was Hollywood stuff. This was Oscar worthy. This was news titillation in its finest hour.

The storm chaser talking to Sheppard Smith was screaming and talking so fast, Sheppard had to tell him to slow down…

“A FARM just went over my head!” the storm chaser yelled.

“What…are you okay..did you say you see some farm equipment?”

‘NO! The whole FARM went over my car!”shepard Smith

Money. What some people will do for it.

I was flipping over the bacon, when I turned on the local news: St. Louis was also on a tornado watch.

“Great” I thought. “not again.”

Sure enough…my husband and I went downstairs as the tornado sirens were going off and then the lights went out, almost at exactly the same time that the tornado that hit my street on April 10 this year had: 8.30pm.

Cell phones weren’t working, so I was stuck with my old trusted radio, and very anxious to hear where the tornados touched down. Were they near us? Were they coming this way?

Do I have time to flip the bacon?

Oklahoma is used to tornadoes, but here in St. Louis people were calling up to the radio station, asking about damages, etc…..and the reporters would always say, “We’ll see what happened tomorrow.” As I laid in the dark and listened to the frightened voices on my radio, I thought the commentator was purposely being very nebulous and leaving everyone literally…in the dark. He knew what happened. He was just not going to say.  His reputation was on the line.

He wasn’t about to lose his job.tornado damage

In the meantime, people were calling up saying they had been in a Casino where the roof was ripped off, tractor trailers flipped, there were houses hit, schools torn apart, etc, and the radio host acted as if it was just a little storm.

First report came in: (You KNOW how I am about first reports.)  Many casualties when a hotel was hit. Drivers reported 20 ambulances arriving at the scene, but the cops said, nobody was hurt.

It’s okay folks, only 100 houses have been flattened and over 200 damaged but that’s really nothing.

The next day, I was stuck without a car, and so I had the Cardinal  baseball game on. They were playing the Giants. KMOX is our main radio station here. It’s the only one that reports the news. Around 10 a.m. The man in charge of our local electric company came on to say that the whole city had wires down everywhere, they had 800 men out, 300 men coming in from other states, and it was reported that about 100,000 people were without electric. The numbers went all over the map in every different report.

The electric man said that Governor Nixon had declared a disaster, and he would tell everyone at 2.30 pm that day, what was going on. He had to take the whole day reviewing everything.

So…he SAID he’d be back at 2.30 pm, and tell us what he found out.

I couldn’t wait to hear what he had to say.

Nobody knew just how long their electric would be out, so I’m sure I wasn’t the only fool who listened to the radio for hours in anticipation. I decided. I would listen to the game.

They had to cancel the game the night before due to weather, so they held a double- header downtown. They even added fireworks.  No doubt, they were hoping all the people without electric would drive downtown for the game. What an opportunity! Get out of your miserable house and come on down!floods

Yes, whole neighborhoods left in the dark…good idea.

Not once, throughout that whole game was there any mention of what had happened in St. Louis. Jack Buck (RIP) would have said something. I would have devoted a whole ten minutes of gratitude to Tom Edison, and how really $%& up the world would be if he had not been born, but that’s why I’m not a sports broadcaster.

Sure, the 200,000 people who had electric saw the news on TV. but the other 100,000 were left out in the cold, and clueless.

At 2.30. nobody came on to tell the good people anything.

I HATE when that happens. I felt like I had been stood up. If you say you are going to do something, well then DO IT.

The game was a shutout: 8-0. Cardinals won with some rookie pitcher. I could have cared less. Couldn’t they have at least had a small news break about the electric situation…like around the seventh inning?

Sure they could have…I wondered: I know life goes on, but after all…come on.

It’s a little bit after 10pm on a Sunday night as I am writing this,  and it’s being reported that three Storm Chasers lost their lives, killed by the tornado’s in Oklahoma trying to get a good shot for the big News channels.Tornado in OK

How stupid is that? Are they that hard up for ratings? What do they tell these guys?

“If you can get IN the tornado and get a good shot, it’s an extra bonus for ya!”

And what about this business that they don’t really want to admit to a tornado until they have ‘professional’ come out and declare it such. Is that for insurance purposes?

Insurance agent: Uh…I know you lost the whole roof to your house sir, and your car is over two blocks in a tree,  but nobody has really confirmed that there even WAS a tornado and so, I will have to list this as wind damage, and of course, we can’t be liable for any water damage caused by the storm, or your fence that is blown down.  That’s was added to your policy last year.

I’m not sure what I got out of this: But it seems to me that there’s a real disconnect in the media, not only about the seriousness of our politician’s crimes, but the worsening natural disasters that are hitting the United States. Fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes…are good for business. Cars are destroyed, houses have to be rebuilt, food gets spoiled, this is all good for the bottom line.

In the meantime, we don’t have to be attacked by any country…the weather is doing a good job of destroying us.

And in two days…it happens all over again.

You know where I’ll be. I’m flipping my bacon at 5.

Nobody Remembers…Tornados of the Past

Nobody Remembers

The bodies hadn’t even been counted before the Democrats started yelling, “Global warming!” on the floor of  Congress. As you see in the above video, Senator Whitehouse (Come on…tell me that is NOT his real name.) lashes out at the Republicans for destroying the world.

Well………..

Last week’s tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, as powerful as it was, was nothing compared to the one in 1925. Remember 1925? The SUV was just a dream in some mechanic’s pillowcase.

From Wikipedia:

Deadliest single tornado in US history

The Tri-State Tornado of March 18, 1925 killed 695 people in Missouri (11), Illinois (613), and Indiana (71). The outbreak it occurred with was also the deadliest known tornado outbreak, with a combined death toll of 747 across the Mississippi River Valley.

It lasted a good 3 and a half hours. Would Senator Whitehouse admit that that tornado could NOT have been caused by global warming? No, because we all know he’s a liberal and no doubt sleeps with global warming bimbo’s, who paint his toenails.

But hey, let’s go back to an even earlier time…1896.

Most damaging tornado

Similar to fatalities, damage (and observations) of a tornado are a coincidence of what character of tornado interacts with certain characteristics of built up areas. That is, destructive tornadoes are in a sense “accidents” of a large tornado striking a large population. In addition to population and changes thereof, comparing damage historically is subject to changes in wealth and inflation. The St. Louis-East St. Louis Tornado of May 27, 1896 incurred the most damages adjusted for wealth and inflation, at an estimated $2.9 billion (1997 USD). In raw numbers, the Joplin Tornado of May 22, 2011 is considered the costliest tornado in recent history, with damage totals near $2.8 billion (2011 USD). Until 2011, the “Oklahoma City Tornado” of May 3, 1999 was the most damaging.

So, tornadoes and hurricanes have been around longer than bedbugs, and most people find it appalling that the Senator would even talk about this after all the sadness of that day.

Nobody Wonders most of all: After Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, Congress ran to the floor and voila— Chris Christie got his $60 million dollars of Hurricane Sandy relief, most of which did not get to the victims because it was filled with pork for other government projects completely unrelated to the hurricane.

Is Congress going to come to the rescue of the poor people in Oklahoma?

Where’s Bruce Springsteen? Bon Jovi? Where’s Barbara Streisand? Robert Redford? To me, the damage from this tornado was MUCH worse. But the Congress is silent.

Obama is going to take his bow (excuse me…photo op) on Sunday in Moore, Oklahoma, and might be forced to “promise” help to those poor people who lost their homes, but…don’t be surprised to hear him suggest that its global warming that is causing the storms.

Global warming is a big lie. BUT…weather manipulation is not. While man can’t even begin to imitate Mother Nature, he can and does try to manipulate it.

Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025 – (Research paper presented to the United States Air Force)

“Weather modification offers the war fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary… Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally… It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog and storms on earth or to modify space weather… and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of military technologies.”

He CAN make a small hurricane or tornado into a larger one. (Not that Mother Nature needs any help.)

He has the technology to cause earthquakes. And most of those fires you are seeing in California every year, are arson. And the more disasters we have, the better for Al Gore’s dream of taking control of the planet with carbon taxes, and buying up even more homes to run up big electrical bills in.

If you think that they wouldn’t use technology to further their liberal plans, then you are not paying attention to the last three scandals.

Hurricane Sandy saved Obama from defeat at the polls. Nobody Thinks that he will use the tornado in Oklahoma to try to come back into the hearts and minds of Americans, because he is in deep trouble. Kris 96

Except this time, he is walking into the heart of America…where Mother Nature’s son is predominantly short on putting up with BS.

Good luck, Mr. “President!”

“Oh say can YOU see, by the dawn’s early light….”

Have a Plan

Nobody Reports

To think that this lady survived her whole house being crushed around her by an F-5 tornado…was a miracle of God many would say. But to see her dog make an appearance, alive and unharmed…coming out from the under the rubble is a tear-jerker.

This lady prayed and it paid off. Most of all, she had a plan.

Robinson Crusoe, had a plan.

But, having seen the results of the kids that were told to go into the halls and cover their heads and who are now dead,  you have to realize once and for all, the “plans’ the government has for protecting any of us are grossly insufficient.

As we saw at Sandy Hook: The government’s plan to protect you children from mass murderers is to make all schools gun-free zones.

The government’s plan for your children who go to schools in tornado ally is to NOT build an underground bunker for them. No doubt, teachers’ pensions are much more important.

One other mother DID have a plan….she saw the weather, knew her children would be in danger at the school, and went and got them. She saved their lives.

The lesson from this whole thing is: Have a plan…for everything.

Nobody’s Fool: Barack Obama

Nobody’s Fool

I hate to admit it, but nobody takes a disaster better and uses it for his own personal benefit than Barack Hussein Obama. He did it today, while he used a memorial for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing to promote his image as “Commander-in-Chief.”

(and the image that Obama is our lord and savior)Obama in Boston

No Republican would ever put themselves on the religious bully pulpit after a disaster and use it to promote themselves…and if they did, the Democrats would scream ‘church and state’

Liberals have been using the church for PR events forever, so nobody criticizes them.

The event was choreographed as well as a well-planned theater production. You had big shots of Obama listening to Yo-Yo Ma, (as a King listening to the court musician) and then Obama on the podium making his big speech after allowing all the interfaith ministers give their little bits, about how Boston is the student capital of the world, and yes, he got to–once again— talk about how he and Michelle went to Harvard there, it was HIS second home.

He always puts himself into every speech.

Also, I have never heard any President in my lifetime remind everyone in every speech he gives that HE is the Commander-in-Chief, or has someone else say it. Just that fact alone is a chilling reminder that Obama borders on wacko megalomania.  Today it was Massachusetts’ governor, Deval Patrick, who introduced the “Commander-In-Chief” to the bully-pulpit of the inter-faith ceremony at the Boston.

Obama tried to used Sandy Hook to push for a big start to eliminate the second amendment, and when it blew up in his face, he was extremely angry, calling everyone who opposed him liars.  And you could tell that in this speech, he was talking to himself. To him the words of this speech were aimed at himself first and foremost. He was pumping himself back into the fight.

The theme was “We will finish the race.”  To Obama this means gun control, redistribution of wealth, bringing millions of more immigrants in to vote as Democrats…and to get rid of America as we’ve always know it.

If you watch this man long enough, you see his mission is only going to get more draconian.

The very fact that the night before this speech, an explosion killed and maimed many more people than at the Boston marathon…and that it could have been a crime bigger than the Boston Marathon..that news literally disappeared off the air…because the president’s speech had to be heard by America. And besides…it happened in Texas.

That tells you who is in charge.

Our media now works for the President. Only FOX news, Drudge, and independent bloggers stand in the way of his complete control of us seeing his image every morning and in every building.

In the meantime, it’s being reported that a Saudi was behind the bombing in Boston and Obama helped get some Saudi out of the country, and like Benghazi whoever did this will be quickly replaced with some other more “important” news.

So, Barack Obama (who laments that nobody at Harvard could say his name.) wins the Nobody’s Fool  award for this week.

And any week that he wins it, Americans lose.

Nobody Knows: Boston, Thatcher, Tea Party, Hangovers, Family Guy

Nobody Knows

BOSTON: You would think this video would be all over the cable news program, but no…all they are talking about is how people lost their limbs, when the bomb went off at the Boston Marathon. They are not showing you the carnage, because if they did, it might get a lot of people really mad….and not only at the terrorists but because the Boston Police said they had no clue that this was going to happen before it happened. Nobody Knows if bomb sniffing dogs are a routine thing at all events, but I agree with this guy….not usually.

Boston police deny the existence of any drill.

Will they ever admit that they had suspicions that a bomb was going to go off? Nobody Knows, but I wouldn’t count on it. It goes back to my theory on the FIRST REPORT. I heard Megyn Kelly on FOX today say that first reports are usually wrong, but the first reports coming from the Boston scene said that they had found two other bombs that had not detonated. These were reports by local authorities, and then it was changed…to there were no second bombs.  So, do you believe the first report or the second?

You know what this Nobody Thinks. Also, we keep seeing the same film from the first bomb…but what about the second bomb? Nobody is talking about that one. And we are not seeing any pictures from that site. Also— nobody is talking about the third victim who was a Chinese National.

The only thing we do know is that Nobody Knows ….much. Nobody Thinks Boston must be near Benghazi.

MARGARET THATCHER’s FUNERAL 

Obama will not be sending anyone to represent his administration to Margaret Thatcher’s Funeral.

Lest we forget, Obama sent three official envoys to Hugo Chavez’s funeral: Rep. Gregory Meeks, a New York Democrat, and former Rep. William Delahunt, a Democrat from Massachusetts, and the U.S. Embassy Caracas Chargé d’Affaires James Derham.

(They were joined by Jesse Jackson, Jr, and Sean Penn and other luminaries from the US.)Obma kissing Chavez

Nobody Knows why Obama keeps insulting the British, but when he sends regards to other communist dictators, you would think the left would admit that he favors communists. No, they would admit that Obama is a homosexual who prefers old white guys before they would ever admit that he prefers communists. To the left, Obama is as American as Cherry Pie.  According to them, Communists do not exist anymore…only Progressives. Just ask Bill Clinton.

You know what this means? If I was X- President George H.W. Bush, I’d try not to die in the next four years

MONEY FOR DRUNKS

Obama gave the Pakistanis $500 million so they could celebrate the bombing of Boston in a proper way. Right now, they are rejoicing in the streets. He also gave money for brain research, (Obama’s second love besides golf and parties at the White House is giving away money.) and now, scientists want Obama to give them some big bucks for further research into a pill to get rid of hangovers.

Scientists at University of California, Davis, apparently unsatisfied with the preferred post-drinking-binge remedy of Bloody Marys and breakfast burritos, are arguing that the U.S. needs to fund more research on hangover cures. Why? Because the “related absenteeism and poor job performance” associated with hangovers costs U.S. companies $148 billion per year, according to NBCNews.com. That comes out to about $2,000 per working adult.

 

Everyone knows that in a depression, everyone drinks…and then they can’t go to work the next day because frankly, what’s the point? Scientists just don’t know why that is.

Why should we spoil it for them?

drunk college

Will Obama give them money to research this very important national problem? Sure he will! Think of all the college students that would sign-up to get PAID to get drunk.  They’d have those student loans paid off in no time.

THE TEA PARTY TERRORISTS

Chris Matthews and Michael Moore are right up there with Obama in speculationg that it was a Tea Party Partrot that bombed the people:

Chris Matthews said:

“Normally, domestic terrorist people tend to be on the far right, although that’s not a good category,” Matthews said on Monday’s show. “Extremists, let’s call them that. Do they advertise after they do something like that? Do they try to get credit as a group or do they just hate America so much, or its politics, or its government, that they just want to do the damage – that they don’t care if they get public credit if you will.”

Even though Obama’s  has actaul ties to a real terrorist, one who has killed with bombs, Bill Ayers—a man he still talks to, Nobody Knows why nobody has tied Obama to the killings. Bill Ayers

FAMILY GUY

In the meantime it was let out that three weeks ago, Family Guy had an episode on, where the cartoon character blew up all the runners at the Boston Marathon so that he could win the race. Body parts were everywhere.

Talk about Hollywood influence. Can we blame the creator of Family Guy for suggesting to the nutcase that did this…to imitate his idea?

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane created a cartoon which made fun of terrorist bombings and depicted mutilated Boston Marathon runners, yet he is labeling people who merely talk about the episode as “abhorrent”.

Tivo and others are now removing the episode from their systems, which is strange given that the episode is supposedly a “hoax” and doesn’t exist, according to the media.

Nobody wants the first report on this: and here it is.

Chris Christie: Where’s the Pork?

Nobody Wonders

You have to wonder…how in the world can Chris Christie complain about not getting his Sandy relief? Didn’t he come out, and desert the Republicans right before the election? Didn’t he act like Obama had come to SAVE New Jersey? Didn’t he act as if God himself had landed his chariot on the soil of New Jersey, and assure Chris Christie that he was President, and he came and DID garantee, that there would be no more red tape, Chris Christie was going to get ALL the help he needed. So let it be written…so let it be done.Pork One

Where was the ‘help’ Obama promised?

Why isn’t he lashing out at ‘President’ Obama? Why isn’t he mentioning that Obama just passed higher taxes on everyone, and that INCLUDES the people who lost their homes in Sandy?

The few last remaining men and women working for the people, have a problem with signing the Sandy funds, and I can’t blame them.

Republican Representative Darrell Issa had this to say about the spending initiatives in the Hurricane Sandy relief bill:

“Your two senators packed this with pork. They had the opportunity to have a $27 to $30 billion dollar legit relief packages, packed it with pork, then dared us not to vote for it.” This include a $150 million in funding for Alaskan fisheries. The bill would also have reportedly increased spending food insurance, and  in $336 million in Amtrak expenses and $2 million in taxpayer funds to repair a room on one of the Smithsonian buildings in Washington D.C.. The publication also reports that the Super Storm Sandy relief legislation also includes $8 million to purchase new vehicles for federal agencies. A total of $4 million for repairs to the Kennedy Space Center were also added to the disaster relief bill.

Really? If the Congress really cared about the American people, they would have immediately passed a bill for Sandy relief, packed with nothing in it, but relief for Sandy victims. Untill there is a bill passed that says they can never load bills with pork, this stuff will happened again and again. Tell me WHY they need money for the Kennedy Space Center when it’s been closed down?

And we all know, they love the fact that they can fill bills with pork, it’s the easiest way for them to get their hands on the money.Pork Two

So…the DEMOCRATS have released the horrible cry on every single channel:

“THEY ARE MEAN AND VICIOUS AND HURTING THE CHILDREN, and thos poor people! OMG..THE REPUBLICANS!”

And two Republicans, Christ Christie and Peter King are outraged that John Boehner didn’t give them money.

And why should he? One of the reasons Obama got elected was because the second favorite son of the Republican Party deserted them in their hour of need, and yes, it IS politics. Despite what Christie said, he knew exactly what he was doing, and it is all about politics.

John Boehner and Obama both managed to leave Washington without doing much of anything besides helping to destroy America more.   Obama gpt money for his rum dealers, his algae subsidies, his Hollywood buddies so he can make more propaganda films, and then he hopped on Air Force One and went back to Hawaii without even signing the bill that everyone “slaved” over. Spending now, $7 million for his vacation.

Boehner went home without calling a vote on Sandy relief.

BUT….the stock market…continues to soar and Nobody Knows why.Pork Three

Nobody’s Opinion About 2012

Nobody’s Opinion

Anybody want to hear what I have to say about 2012? No?Sandy two

Nobody Thinks this year was mutilated, as sure as a Kentucky Fried Chicken….but the main thing we are going to remember is…..is the rush of all of us stocking up on guns at the end of the year because, for the first time in history, SOMEHOW, a man who has single-handily changed America’s greatness to fast becoming a third world country, got reelected.

Yes, the election was a fraud….the race might have been close, but we’ll never know, because for the first time in America’s history, we have Hugo Chavez as President. He just has a much more expensive bombardier jacket, better teeth, and a bigger plane.

The year WAS– nothing but politics. Right down to the last day in November we were unmercifully bombarded with the fact that Mitt Romney kills dogs and people, and hides his money in the Cayman Islands.  Mitt Romney somehow could not muster up the courage to call Obama what he really is: A crack head taking us all to communism on a fast bus to El Salvador.

And you know what? I CAN call the President a crack head. Since Obama became ‘President’ my neighborhood is full of them.  If he can play golf with pimps, I can call him a crack head, knowing perhaps all too well that I’d better say it now…because it won’t be long before I can’t say such things.

The Republicans ran such a weak campaign, it was as if they hadn’t noticed that condoms are being handed out along with joints in our high schools, and the President lets his secret service have prostitutes at their beck and call. Mitt failed to mention that Obama, not only unfairly took the credit for killing bin Laden, but let 4 men die in Benghazi—and….not to mention, how he loves to sell guns to our enemies. And it’s not just south of the border that got Obama Guns…He’s arming half the Middle East.

When push came to shove, the Republicans were lost. They whisked Paul Ryan out..and then stupidly hid him.

They didn’t stand a chance.  So now we’re stuck with a Putin understudy.

In the annals of history, Obama will look even more incredibly malevolent. What President could pull off making you and I pay for everyone else’s abortion? What President could celebrate closing our space station? Or our Military? What President could tell you that you won’t get that heart surgery after a certain age?

Obama can…YES HE CAN. And he can triple the deficit, destory our top credit rating,  close down Gibson Guitars, and Hostess, and NASA , and Lucas, and even Solyndra, and thousands of strip malls all across the country, all the while offering amnesty, and drones, and setting the whole Middle East on the path to fanatical Muslim Brotherhood fairyland.

This fMitt and McCainrom a man who hung out in the gay bars of Chicago.

But we had other news: It wasn’t only our country where the leaders seemed insane.  Europe is starting to look like a travelogue for anarchy.  Kum Jong Un thinks he is Dr. Strangelove, and the British Royals love to go naked. Prince Harry was naked in Las Vegas and Kate the new pregnant bride was naked everywhere else. I don’t know about you, but this Nobody Thinks she married the wrong Prince.

And yet, The Royals managed to have the biggest year yet, celebrating the Queen’s 60th, and naming Big Ben, Big Queen, and throwing the biggest most expensive Olympic ever seen in the Isles of Wright. Where socialized medicine will be the New British export. It was a great “green” display and a downright almost Benny Hill advertisement for the glories of socialism, the biggest propaganda display on that subject that we’ve ever seen, complete with Paul McCartney’s cracking voice at the end singing…”Live and Let Dieeeeeeeeeeeee”

And the elites get to choose, who lives and who dies in the future. But…what else is new?

Michael Phelps will no doubt lose all his gold metals someday to Lance Armstrong. Hockey…might never come back.  And baseball…may give way to soccer by 2022, the year the earth might finally come to an end, because although the elites think that they might all just exist the planet, that doesn’t there’ll be any astronauts left to take them.

As far as disasters go, we had the worst drought in two -thirds of the United States. And more fires. My grass got green for one whole week…and then we had…Hurricane Sandy.  Sandy hit the Jersey Shore, and Jersey Christie, stuck his finger into the union wind, and ran to the President’s side.  FEMA was collecting discarded 16oz soda cups and forgetting to drop off food to the weary.  By that time we were all so disgusted with politics, in our fatique we ignored how FAST they tallied the Presidential voting results, and crowned him King.

Which he is. Obama can now arrest any one of us, hold us without trial, and not even TELL anybody where we are or why

And as if the devil himself was working for Obama–some kid went nuts and killed innocents babes at a school. Oh…and his mother was a Teapartier.

“She was from gun culture. Live free or die. That was truly her upbringing,”

You couldn’t WRITE a better power script for Obama…so next year we WILL have gun control..and once again the Supreme Court will demolish the Constitution.

They’re getting pretty good at it.

We lost some good people in 2012: Neil Armstrong, and Ray Bradbury…who befittingly died with our space program. Dick Clark— although I’m surprised they don’t stuff his body and just let it ride down the ball at midnight, in fact, I think Dick would be honored. Hell, his hair would be honored!

Whitney Houston will no longer have to give up cocaine: Opie can now claim Andy Griffith was a secret tea partier and gay: Donna Summer drag queens will get paid double on Sunday: I can finally name my next dog Fang, Phyllis Diller won’t care: and Helen Gurly Brown can get together somewhere with Nora Ephran (The lady who put the orgasim in When Harry Met Sally) and educate Joe Paterno on the finer points of child molestation. Neil Armstrong

And God Bless Mike Wallace, who had the wisdom to tell everybody that he suffered from depressions, making the rest of us feel better.

And then there was the saddest news of all. We had more soldiers commit suicide…than we lost in the war.

Mike Wallace didn’t see that one coming.

That’s another first. They served to help build a country, where they are hated, and they come home to a country, where they WILL be disarmed, and ignored, and if you think Obama has nothing to do with our finest men and women committing suicide, think again.

Yes, we are Kentucky Fried…unless…we arm ourselves with the truth.

And that’s why I’m posting this link. Please…take a look. (Movie…worth it…check it out…go ahead..good stuff…)

It’s all you need to know about how this all happened.

It’s long…I know….almost an hour. But…Honey Boo Boo…believe me, can wait.

2013 will be the time the last remaining Americans stand up and say..

THIS…is our finest hour.

At that, I am almost sure…..

Almost….maybe…uh…Pointing

Nobody Knows: Will Obama Let a “Crisis” Go to Waste?

Nobody Knows

While there is no one in the world that can imagine a man taking the lives of innocent little children, for this horrible event to happen, on this day so near the end of the year, we all all  put in shock and double agony.

Because, as we watched a ‘crying’ President use this opportunity to remark on the event…..we know from past events that he will use this event to further his agenda of gun control.Angel in morning

For BEFORE this event, we had on the plate of events; A secretary of state who was called before Congress to testify in the biggest scandal since Watergate, decide she didn’t have to: a President willing to take the country into a deep depression for the sake of his own Marxist agenda: A President sending troops into another country–Turkey, expanding our involment in another ground war in the Middle East: a President mad about his favorite pick for Secretary of State being trumped by Congress, only to be replaced by other narfarious politicians like John Kerry, or Colin Powell: and a President asking for $60 billion to help out the victims of Sandy, only to pack it with millions of personal projects like fixing the sand dunes by the Kennedy Space Center.

This crisis, on a Friday afternoon, couldn’t have come at a more opportune time for the Prisident.

So: to make the day even sader, not only has the earth been robbed of innocent lives…we have a corrupt admininstration that will use this horrible event for it’s takeover of our right to bear arms…and he will do it “For the Children.”

Watch: For the executive order.

That’s why we saw his tears. (Although, while he kept wiping his eyes, I couldn’t see any.)

Am I cynical? You bet.

And so, we all pray for the parents, and kids who have to live with this nightmare the rest of their lives.

God be there to catch them all.

Be Thankful, For the Non-Carrington Event

Nobody Wonders

Picture this: It’s 7 am on Thanksgiving morning, you, being the cook in the house, are going through in your mind all that you have to do to get Thanksgiving dinner on by the time everyone arrives at 4.pm. Your brother and his wife and three kids are coming in for the family Thanksgiving meal. There’s a turkey to baste, mash potatoes and pies to cook, corn and buns, and sweet potatoes…the fridge is packed.

You go into the bathroom, and turn on the lights. You are washing your hair in the shower and then…it happens….the lights go out.

The first thing you think of is: “Oh NO! How long will the electric be off?”

Unfortunately for a long time,—almost a year in fact, but you don’t know that. On top of everything, your radio doesn’t work, neither does your cell phone. Your brother never arrives. You have been thrown back into the 18th century, and all because…your Congressman decided that giving money to Egypt was more important than shoring up the electrical grid for this kind of event.

What event?

According to Dr. Michio Kaku, the event of a lifetime, and it’s called The Carrington Event.

Last night on Coast to Coast, Michio was talking about the fear he has: He said the sun is now at its maximum activity for solar flares, and this year, they are monstrous. He is really worried. In fact, the  Society of United States Physicists are so worried that they went to Congress and begged for $100 million dollars to prepare our nuclear plants and Satellites for what to them, is more pressing that anything from Iran: An electromagnetic pulse from the sun, which will completely knock out everything electric, not to mention all satellites.

It would literally….cripple us.

Congress, just laughed at them, he said. After all, Congress doesn’t do anything until after the disasters, and Hurricane Sandy proves it.  They didn’t prepare New York, unlike many other countries around the world who have built dikes around their vulnerable cities, New York did not.

Dr. Michio couldn’t believe that the Congress —just laughed at him.

Why is it called a Carrington Event?

At 11:18 AM on the cloudless morning of Thursday, September 1, 1859, 33-year-old Richard Carrington—widely acknowledged to be one of England’s foremost solar astronomers—was in his well-appointed private observatory. Just as usual on every sunny day, his telescope was projecting an 11-inch-wide image of the sun on a screen, and Carrington skillfully drew the sunspots he saw.

Just before dawn the next day, skies all over planet Earth erupted in red, green, and purple auroras so brilliant that newspapers could be read as easily as in daylight. Indeed, stunning auroras pulsated even at near tropical latitudes over Cuba, the Bahamas, Jamaica, El Salvador, and Hawaii. Telegraph lines were all knocked out, even fires started from the solar blast.

And we’ve been hit before:

A huge solar flare on August 4, 1972, knocked out long-distance telephone communication across Illinois. That event, in fact, caused AT&T to redesign its power system for transatlantic cables. A similar flare on March 13, 1989, provoked geomagnetic storms that disrupted electric power transmission from the Hydro Québec generating station in Canada, blacking out most of the province and plunging 6 million people into darkness for 9 hours; aurora-induced power surges even melted power transformers in New Jersey. In December 2005, X-rays from another solar storm disrupted satellite-to-ground communications and Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation signals for about 10 minutes. That may not sound like much, but as Lanzerotti noted, “I would not have wanted to be on a commercial airplane being guided in for a landing by GPS or on a ship being docked by GPS during that 10 minutes.”

Experts who have studied the question say there is little to be done to protect satellites from a Carrington-class flare. In fact, a recent paper estimates potential damage to the 900-plus satellites currently in orbit could cost between $30 billion and $70 billion. The best solution, they say: have a pipeline of comsats ready for launch.

So, needless to say, even though in all probability– a solar flare won’t happen tomorrow. You won’t have to throw out the Turkey. But…according to Michio Kaku, a scientist who knows, it’s a very real possibility that it could happen very soon, in fact, maybe that’s what the Mayan’s were counting on.

And on that happy note: Everyone Have a Great Thanksgiving!  Remember, if your lights are on, it’s a reason to give thinks to your favorite God. (LOL)
