Patience tested over waste, crime at protest sites
Post Date: 2011-10-25 22:38:34 by calcon
NEW YORK Fed up with petty crime, the all-night racket of beating drums, the smell of human waste and the sight of trampled flowers and grass, police and neighbors are losing patience with some of the anti-Wall Street protests around the U.S. In Oakland, Calif., police in riot gear fired tear gas and bean bags before daybreak Tuesday to disperse about 170 protesters who had been camping in front of City Hall for the past two weeks, and 75 people were arrested. The mayor of Providence, R.I., is threatening to go to court within days to evict demonstrators from a park. And businesses and residents near New York's Zuccotti Park, the unofficial headquarters of the movement that ...
California Unemployment, Poverty Contribute To 'Post-Industrial Hell'
Post Date: 2011-10-13 12:41:31 by Skip Intro
By Lance Williams Since the recession began, times have been tough in California everybody knows it. The economy is in a protracted stall. But it took economists at California Lutheran Universitys Center for Economic Research and Forecasting to describe, in hyperbolic language, the depth of the problems that have beset the Golden State since the stock market started to tank in the summer of 08. California, writes center director Bill Watkins, is fast becoming a post-industrial hell. Thats true for almost everyone except the gentry class, their best servants and the public sector, he writes.

Lawyer turns topless dancer to pay the bills
Post Date: 2011-09-14 19:02:50 by Capitalist Eric
Carla couldn't find work in the legal profession, so she's dancing in a topless bar now. When Carla graduated 10 years ago, she thought her law degree would be a permanent ticket to a high-paying job. But instead of selling her mind, Carla is selling her body. After student loans, debt, a layoff and unemployment battered her bank account, she now finds herself in an almost unbelievable position dancing in a topless bar. "Did I ever think Id be taking my top off for rent money? No. I was in my mid-30s and had never danced before," said Carla, who asked that we use her stage name and withhold her identity and some personal details. "As a little girl, I ...

40 Reasons For Gun Control
Post Date: 2011-04-16 19:43:00 by CZ82
40 Reasons For Gun Control Significant portions of this article are excerpted from Michael Z. Williamson's excellent and witty piece, "It's amazing what one has to believe to believe in gun control" 1. Banning guns works, which is why New York, DC, & Chicago cops need guns. 2. Washington DC's low murder rate of 69 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Indianapolis' high murder rate of 9 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control. 3. Statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control but statistics showing increasing murder rates after gun control are "just statistics." 4. The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, both of which ...

Post Date: 2011-02-23 18:53:14 by Mad Dog
One of the members of the Class of 2010 in the U.S. House of Representatives has revealed he has little patience for the politically correct arguments that Islam is, in fact, a religion of peace and nonaggression.
"Don't try to blow sunshine up my butt," U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., warned a member of a town hall meeting audience who had challenged him to identify a single verse in the Quran that tells Muslims to attack America.
The comments came earlier this week at Pompano Beach, Fla., during a question-and-answer time at his meeting. A questioner identified by the Palm Beach Post as Nezar Hamze, executive director for a branch of the Council for American Islamic Relations, ...

Controversial Airline Boss Questions Why Planes Need Co-Pilots
Post Date: 2010-09-09 22:35:24 by Skip Intro
Controversial Airline Boss Questions Why Planes Need Co-Pilots The outspoken head of budget carrier Ryanair says co-pilots are not necessary on passenger planes and could be eliminated to save money. "Why does every plane have two pilots? Really, you only need one pilot," says Ryanair CEO Michael O'Leary, in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek. "Let's take out the second pilot. Let the bloody computer fly it." He goes on to say a fight attendant on each plane could be trained to help with landing, in case something goes wrong. "If the pilot has an emergency, he rings the bell, he calls her in," O'Leary says. "She could take over." ...

Post Date: 2010-08-09 19:03:41 by Skip Intro
A flight attendant ran out of patience on a plane that just landed at JFK on Monday afternoon, so he allegedly cursed a blue streak over the p.a. system, grabbed some beers, pulled the emergency chute, slid down and ran from the plane, sources said. Jet Blue employee Steven Slater was working on Flight 1052 from Pittsburgh to Kennedy Airport, which landed at around 12 p.m., when he got into a verbal altercation with a passenger, law-enforcement sources said. Following a heated exchange, the flight attendant told off the entire plane on the public address system, activated an emergency chute near the back of the plane and jumped down the evacuation slide and ran for it. The argument began ...

Two police officers already facing a federal lawsuit for shooting and killing a man during St. Patrick's Day festivities on the South Side have been named again in a separate incident.

This thread has so much! It's about that freak Polanski. Look at the opinions fly. First, wouldn't you know it, Margie is defending him: ------ #26. To: Mad Dog (#25) This is about a man who fled sentencing for a FELONY SEXUAL ASSAULT ON A MINOR which he had admitted guilt of. That's not true. He was sentenced to 90 days, after entering the guilty plea. The judge changed his mind later, threatening Polanski with a new sentence. The case had been settled in court, with a $500,000 dedommagement to the victim, who does NOT want the case reopened. Marguerite posted on 2010-05-05 14:33:26 ET ------ Like what the fuck eh!!!!

Wet summer, more demand could create seed shortage By MICHAEL J. CRUMB, Associated Press Writer Michael J. Crumb, Associated Press Writer Mon Feb 1, 4:41 am ET DES MOINES, Iowa Dreaming of biting into a garden-fresh cucumber sandwich this summer? Better order your seeds now. A poor growing season last year and increased orders from Europe could make it difficult for home gardeners to get seeds for the most popular cucumber variety and some vegetables this spring. Farmers, who usually grow different varieties than home gardeners, aren't likely to be affected. Seeds for what's known as open-pollinated cucumbers seem to be most scarce, but carrots, snap peas and onions also ...
A Suggested Survival List
Post Date: 2009-12-16 09:17:52 by A K A Stone
One does not have to be a prophet to know that we are on the precipice of some potentially catastrophic--or at the very least, challenging--days. In fact, most of us are already in challenging days, and some are already enduring catastrophic events. That is, if one would call being out of work, losing one's home, facing life-threatening medical conditions without any prospect of medical insurance, several families being forced to live in one house due to homes being foreclosed, etc., catastrophic. The potential for an escalation of cataclysmic events, however, is very real. Only a "blooming idiot" would call someone who attempts to prepare for "the day of adversity" ...
Where to Find Gold!
Post Date: 2008-10-10 20:20:42 by A K A Stone
Which Streams contain gold? Generally speaking, streams that are most likely to contain gold must have four characteristics. 1. They should be unregulated (not dammed). This factor is important because this technique is based on the spring flood churning up the minerals found in the streambed. When this is done during the spring flood, the gold and other dense materials fall to the bottom of certain areas first. This concentrates these valuable minerals which allows prospectors to find them. 2. They should be in a mineral rich area Mineral Rich Area: A good indication as to whether you are in a mineral rich area is to look at the rocks exposed by the stream erosion and highway cuts used ...
