In a failing effort to retain my breakfast, I will refrain from asking what “it” is.

I was in China less than a year ago. I can tell you that the brownish colour of the sky in the picture above, is seen almost everywhere in China. It is one of the dirtiest places I have ever visited. Their rivers are open sewers and smell like it. The areas that were mentioned will be lucky to have natural snow and almost as lucky to have conditions that will support even man made snow. With the pollution spreading everywhere, one can imagine the visitors being admonished not to eat the brown snow.
These may well be the first ‘Brown Winter Games’.
The Olympic games are a criminal waste of money in anyone’s country, so it is a good thing that it is the Chinese throwing their money down the Olympic rat hole and not the west. It is time for the games to have either a couple of permanent venues ( or even just one in Greece) or to shut down altogether.

“Obama may just refuse to enforce the law.”
What the hell kind of government do you guys have down there? Obama has made a career out of ignoring the law and this is just the latest example. You fought a revolution to overthrow this kind of government 300 years ago, didn’t you? You threw out the idea of rule by kings when you threw those tea bags in the harbour.
So what happened?
You never really accomplished that goal and now you have even worse in the palace. You don’t even have a King. You have a politically driven, dictator who is willing to ignore the law and act in any way he wishes to install his personal agenda upon the nation. How long will it be before he and his fellow criminals demand that you refer to him as your ‘dear leader’?
IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH! . For the love of God and your poor nation IMPEACH!
I absolutely agree with you 1000%. If it were up to me, it would have happened years ago!

All of which begs the question; “How does something that sinks, make it onto a beach?” Unless the aircraft crashed just off shore and a huge storm managed to disturb the wreckage, that was in just a few feet of water, this heavy object ( it took four guys to lift it) would never have washed up.
Someone needs to start checking the local waters for some large aluminum debris.
What? How many men do you think it takes to lift a ship? It must not float! Conspiracy! Most airplane parts are made with honeycomb support structures (in the wings), or ported aluminum struts. There is more air than metal, and it's very easy for parts to trap air, and float. Especially, larger pieces.

Two guys go to a local restaurant and order a couple of hamburgers.
Waitress says, “Sure thing hon.”
She goes to the refridgerator, takes out two frozen patties, puts them under her ‘under-arms’ and proceeds to serve a couple of other customers.
After five minutes the first guy asks the second; “What in hell is she doing with our hamburgers?!!?”
Second guy replies; “She’s defrosting them, of course!”
First guy, visibly shaken, thinks about this for a few minutes and then turns to the second guy and says; “Well, thank God we didn’t order hot dogs!”
(OK. Didn’t have anything to do with hunting but it did have two tube steaks in it!)

$225,000 each? Their lives have been forever altered for the worse. These lads should have added a few zeros to that amount. R.S. insurance will pay that off and account for the expenditure a cost of doing business.
No, R.S. should have been brought to it’s knees; it’s bank accounts emptied and its revolting nest of uber-liberal and socialist staff and reporters, thrown out onto the street.
Rolling Stone got off easy. This dirty little gang and their lying publication should have been crushed.

Wanna bet it was some teen aged girls who were too busy preening for the boys throwing the Frisbee around, to watch the child?
“Whoever says there is no God cannot explain moments like this”.
Then how do you explain all the times the toddler is not found in time? If ‘God’ can save one, why not another? Or is ‘God’ so cold hearted that he can allow one to drown while not another?
The problem with your premise is that you attempt to dictate what God should do...according to your personal sensibilities. If, however, God is the creator of the universe and that (at least according to Him) things are going to occur according to His plan, then your sensibilities don’t apply. Otherwise, He is not a God, or at least you get to say to Him, “move over, I’m qualified to sit here too.” As emotionally heart rending as it is for me to acknowledge that His plan also may include tragedy in all our lives, I am spiritually compelled to place every ounce of trust that I can muster, in Him. Man, I hope none of us ever has to face a scare like the one in this story or something even worse. However, I’m confident that God will carry us through the pain and anguish should it ever be that we encounter a personal tragic event. It is well with my soul…
And this guy is a REAL HERO!
I can tell you from personal experience, He has to have a prayer to answer. General prayers like, 'God i pray for world peace don't have much pull.' Were we to translate that manuscript below today we would say, 'the specific, heartfelt prayer of the serious (as opposed to the recreational user) believer gets the job done.' I am going to go out on a limb and say that since the little girl had a surname of Hernandez, she likely had a praying grandmother. He simply whispered into Angelo's ear, 'today would be a good day to go to the lake.' the rest is history.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a RIGHTEOUS man availeth much James 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. James 5:18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

This is not new news. Mr. Moore has been saying this for years and Green Peace has been actively trying to shut him up. This whole issue illustrates the power of the ignorant when given a public pulpit and the undying support of a press made up of left wing enviro-nazis who have been blinded by their light.

Would someone please tell The-Monk that ‘TD Bank’ stands for ‘Toronto Dominion Bank’? Apparently Americans seem to like some things from ‘off shore’.

It really is a belief system, a religion, isn’t it.

1956 A.R.R.L. (American Radio Relay League) hand book. ‘The Trial and Punishment of I.G. Farbin’. Turtledove’s ‘Guns of the South’ and ‘World at War’ series, ‘Battle of the River Platte’ ( the book not the movie). Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Sir Winston Churchill’s ‘History of the English Speaking Peoples, Sir Winston Churchill’s ‘History of the Second World War, Arthur Herman’s ‘To Rule the Waves; How the Royal Navy Shaped the Modern World.
That should get him started on a REAL education.

How stupid are the people at this dealership? The last thing a small business wants to do is take sides in a political sense as they alienate anyone who does not agree with them. Newspapers have learned this lesson, albeit, too late.
It seems that you do not have to be too bright to be a sales person at a Nissan dealership.
Troonorth - actually probably a good move for the dealership. Remember that it is in LA, and doesn't have many non-hispanic customers to begin with.
Just the one in LA, The one I do business with are good people.

Now THAT’S the kind of lawyer I want working for me! Roll over the enemy faster than Patton rolled over the Germans. This little puke should be crushed and destroyed along with his ‘paper’ as an example to all the other little pukes who think they can make a name and career for themselves by destroying a reputation.

So, the Pinellas County Air Quality department does exactly what? Other than employ countless people to hand out BBQ tips, it seems like this department is filling a need that doesn’t exist.
Another bloated (no pun intended) government department of overreach.

Doesn’t happen to BlackBerrys. The only phone that has real security. Not to mention strongest radio, fastest browser, longest lasting battery, real multi-tasking, easy to use email system, access to android and BB apps, oh yes, and it doesn’t bend and the glass doesn’t break. /;-)
July 28, 2015 at 8:50am
Why? Apple has no security at all. Next to android they are the hacker’s dream.
careful the Jobs loyalist will label you as a blasphemer .
It really is a belief system, a religion, isn't it.

“The British better take note”????!!!
You, my friend, had better look a lot closer to home. If you don’t think that this is happening all across the United States and Canada then you have not been paying attention. This is just another part of the ‘soft invasion’ and will soon lead to violence in our cities and streets. Count on it.

Anyone want to bet that he is X-air-force? You bet your dihedral he is!! (And of course had he been flying inverted that would be anhedral)
