and the sun's peeking through now. Hopefully allowing some drying out today.
In other news, some people in government may finally be getting the hint that the PRC isn't our friend.
And last month, at the Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Beijing, a Chinese flag officer launched a three-minute rant that stunned the 65 or so American officials in the audience. Everything that is right with U.S. relations with China is due to China, said Rear Admiral Guan Youfei. Everything that is wrong is Washington’s fault. According to Guan, the United States sees China as an enemy.
“Admiral Guan was representing what all of us think about the United States in our hearts,” a senior Chinese official told the Washington Post. “It may not have been politically correct, but it wasn’t an accident.” Chinese flag officers do not launch into polemical speeches at tightly scripted events, such as the once-a-year Strategic and Economic Dialogue, and it was reckless for American officials to assume, despite everything, that Admiral Guan was speaking only for himself.
NASA says around 2013 the sun is going to give us a whack. They think a bad one.
Senior space agency scientists believe the Earth will be hit with unprecedented levels of magnetic energy from solar flares after the Sun wakes “from a deep slumber” sometime around 2013, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.
They've found huge mineral deposits in Afghanistan; the left predicts doom because this is a horrible thing.
Two Somali football fans have been killed by Islamic militants after being caught watching World Cup matches.
A spokesman for the group, Sheikh Mohamed Abdi Aros, said the rest of Somalia should respect their ban on the World Cup – the first to be hosted in Africa – and focus instead on "pursuing holy jihad".
The chick who claimed she was fired for being hot... You've blown it, dumbass.
She griped that Lorenzana has been "ridiculed and attacked . . . by media pundits."
But "pundit" Peyser was more than happy to hear of Allred's rant.
"I'm flattered that my words were sufficient to draw Gloria Allred, like a truffle-sniffing pig, out from California to represent this lady," Peyser said.
"I'm getting an avalanche of mes sages, e-mails, voicemails from people who are saying, 'Bravo!' and that this woman [Lorenzana] is a publicity whore."
I didn't buy this in the first place; a bank is going to fire a woman because of her looks? In this day of "You discriminated against me!!!" lawsuits?
Couple of dumbass teachers just had to crap on some kids who decided to join the military; problems ensue.
This is a strange one:
A armed couple was arrested tonight after they tried to enter Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base in an SUV full of weapons and ammo.
Gov. Jindal got tired of waiting for Obama and the EPA to make a decision:
Eight weeks into the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of the Mexico, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has told the National Guard that there’s no time left to wait for BP, so they’re taking matters into their own hands.
In Fort Jackson, La., Jindal has ordered the Guard to start building barrier walls right in the middle of the ocean. The barriers, built nine miles off shore, are intended to keep the oil from reaching the coast by filling the gaps between barrier islands.
Well, since The Lightworker & Co. would rather talk and play games than make a decision...
