From NASA.

“Discovered by the LaSagra observatory in southern Spain, the small asteroid 2012 DA14 will pass within about 3.5 Earth radii of the Earth’s surface on February 15, 2013. Although its size is not well determined, this near-Earth asteroid is thought to be about 45 meters in diameter. Asteroid 2012 DA14 will pass inside the geosynchronous satellite ring, located about 35,800 km above the equator. Its orbit about the sun can bring it no closer to the Earth’s surface than 3.2 Earth radii on February 15, 2013. On this date, the asteroid will travel rapidly from the southern evening sky into the northern morning sky with its closest Earth approach occurring about 19:26 UTC when it will achieve a magnitude of less than seven, which is somewhat fainter than naked eye visibility. About 4 minutes after its Earth close approach, there is a good chance it will pass into the Earth’s shadow for about 18 minutes or so before reappearing from the eclipse. When traveling rapidly into the northern morning sky, 2012 DA14 will quickly fade in brightness.”

  1. “Although its size is not well determined”???

    Good morning all.

  4. “This passage of 2012 DA14 by the Earth is a record close approach for a known object of this size. A few other known asteroids have flown by the Earth even closer, but those asteroids were smaller. On average, we expect an object of this size to get this close to the Earth about once every 40 years. An actual Earth collision by an object of this size would be expected much less frequently, about once every 1200 years on average.”

  9. Sueq……………..
    My wife and I had some friends over last night. We played cards all night and believe it or not NOBODY wanted to watch the SOTU speech……….like Ohhhhh……wellllllll. Wonder why!
    BTW……..I read your comment wherein you referenced my earlier comment in which I said when you hear the “bullet it was not meant for you”. You got it wrong. The saying is “When you hear the SHOT the bullet was not intended for you. This interpreted means that since most modern bullets fly at a speed which is faster than the speed of sound, it is reasonable to conclude that if you are still alive when you hear the shot either the person who fired the shot was a very poor marksman,or you were not his target to begin with. HAR DE HAR LOL
    Have a great day,love talkin with ya! Hope all is well at your house!

  11. oldsailor,

    Thanks for clarifing. I think I got your drift, though. As far as not wanting to watch the SOTU? You are better off………..THERE IS NO UNION! Soetoro has seen to that! He has tried and successfully, for the most part, pitted us all against each other. The “Great Divider”. As Cabby says……Satan’s plan.

  12. Meant to say “clarifying”… I think. Oh well.

  13. A bit OT but:
    What’s the big deal about Rubio’s water bottle from his rebuttal speech? Sheesh I have read about it all over the internet and on twitter. One of his aides tweeted he had possession of the most famous water bottle in America. Now, if someone had O’s water bottle, I would agree because then we could get a DNA profile on him and see who he really is. Now that would be great. Can’t believe it hasn’t been done either through hacked medical records or via a glass, dish, silverware or a piece of his chewed up gum. Maybe it’s too hard to get anything off of one of those items that would be definitive. Would be a big step forward if it was done. imo.

  18. Thanks CW….this is a very interesting and pretty unreported topic….the closer “encounters” with this space “junk” that seems to be being tossed off more these days from the oort cloud of debris via some mysterious thing of great gravitational pull; “tenth planet”.

    What is not spoken of is the apparently huge object, not seen clearly as yet but known for its gravitational pull on the outer planets and thus this oort cloud’s debris. I think we will see more of these “signs” as warnings for these times. I think 2014 may just speed things up to the point that the actual NWO leader/anti-Christ will emerge onto the scene….at first as a sort of benevolent environmental/social/economic/spiritual savior upon whom, when the chaos is ripe and people will be so in need of help, the world will allow all kinds of authority over their freedoms.

    A not too pleasant prediction by a NASA employee whose conclusions are described in rather plain spoken imagery to say the least!:

  19. Breaking! Dick Lugar Still An Obnoxious RINO…

    Former Sen. Dick Lugar (R-Ind.) is relieved the Tea Party won few victories during the 2012 election season, he said in an interview on MSNBC Wednesday.

    Lugar told host Chuck Todd he believes the Tea Party creates divisions within the GOP and pushes away Democrats, creating “a rift” and doing the party a major disservice.

    “Republicans who really want to see a majority in the Senate know that in order to do that, there really have to be able candidates, or able to go the route, who have a sense, at least, of independent thought that appeals not only to core Republicans, but likewise to many independent voters,” Lugar said.

    Lugar called out inflexible, ultra-conservative Republicans for hindering the party’s success. He said he believes the opposition to the nomination for former GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel (Neb.) for defense secretary was “grounded in the resentments of some conservatives inside and outside the Senate who regard [Hagel’s] independent thinking as political blasphemy.”

  20. Sueq……….
    Thank you very much for the song. I have a very special place inside of me for the Battle Hymn of the Republic. During WW2 we heard it a lot, and sang it a lot during grade school. In the County Public School system which existed then, many of the teachers were simple, but knowledgeable farmer’s wives, many of whom were not even licensed as teachers. There was a world war ongoing. The war effort stripped out a lot of teachers who had college, who were sent to Officer Candidate School to become officers in our military.

  21. Observer…………
    Now you know why the people of Indiana had their belly full of Lugar. We done what was necessary…….VOTED HIS MORONIC BACKSIDE OUT THE DOOR with an emphasis of a size 12 on his backside.

  22. A blood moon is a full lunar eclipse. When Jesus died on the cross there was a blood moon. How do we know this? Lawyer and Christian Rick Larsen became fascinated and then absorbed about the Bethlehem star after being asked to lead a study in his church. In doing so, Larsen set out to gather “evidences” of what was recorded in the bible. That is what lawyers are supposed to do…use real evidence. He studied astronomy, bought relevant software, read and read, and voila, has produced some amazing research in which the exact star positions and past astronomical data can be exactly pinpointed. Yes, one CAN go back in time!! See his complete and completely fascinating you tube videos on the Bethlehem star and the also what happened in the sky when Jesus died. I think there are 6 or 7 parts. Rick Larsen is the only videos I am referring to…as other people have vids as well. You will be amazed. Watch them all.

  23. You are most welcome, oldsailor. My great aunt was educated in a one room school house in Arkansas. The year she graduated was the year the teacher quit. She was hired at the age of 18 to teach 1 through 12. She was a magnificient woman. She showed me the 8th grade text books she used. They were way beyond those that are used today in many college courses.

  24. “Sheriff Joe’s Obama Document Fraud Investigator: New Items Have Been Uncovered”

    Wednesday, February 13, 2013

    “Carl Gallups just got off the phone in a 45 minute conversation with Lt. Mike Zullo of the Sheriff Arpaio Investigation. Lt. Zullo assured Carl that the investigation is full steam ahead, new items have been uncovered, more information is flowing in, plans are being made, new legal contacts are being made and cultivated – and a definitive plan of action is NOW in the works. Lt. Zullo’s message to all law abiding, constitution loving Americans is to NOT GIVE UP – stay engaged – stay in prayer – THIS IS NOT OVER!

    Be patient. When information flow is relatively silent – it does not mean that nothing is happening! MUCH is happening behind the scenes preparing for soon coming ACTION. God bless you and please help us SPREAD this word around America! – PPSIMMONS.”

  26. 86 Articles of Impeachment Against Obama

    There is a growing groundswell within American Republican and Tea Party ranks that impeachment proceedings should be initiated against President Obama on a whole list of violations of the Constitution and the War Powers Act

    Congressmen Allen West of Florida (R-Florida) and Darrell Issa (R- California) have consistently and loudly criticized the president for overstepping the political mark and bypassing Congress’s approval on a whole range of dubious policies and issues:and the recent Obama attack on the Supreme Court of Justice and the Russian ” Open Mic ” gaffe on National Security, leads to one question: Is Barack Obama making his own case for impeachment? Obama did not become the Democratic nominee for President without the help of several leaders of the Democratic Party who knew that he was not eligible for office

  27. LMUHA……

    In reference to the above post at 9:04pm………

    The big question that must be answered is;

    How can you impeach an ILLEGAL president? The impeachment process is for LEGAL officials…..

    Obama is not, nor ever was, nor ever could be,… a legal president……..

    Before you say, “well he was elected”…yes, but he was not qualified to hold the position in the first place…so he was ILLEGAL even as he was running for the position….that’s called FRAUD……FELONY FRAUD

    There is only one way to remove Obama….ARREST….

  28. Mark Levin just obliterated the usurper on Hannity! Levin busted the usurper on The Muslim Brotherhood, lies to Americans, and a host of other items.

  29. Bob, I, too, heard Levin and appreciated what he said about the Repubs having to fight, fight, fight against the usurper each step of the way.

    Recognizing that there are some who have written off Levin because of his refusal to address the eligibility issue (I am also upset with him over his bull-headedness in this matter), let me share some thoughts as follows:

    We are never going to find any person who comes up to the expectation of all individuals who post here. No one is perfect, and earning money to promote conservative principles is just a fact of life, and we just might as well accept it.

    We have to unite as much as possible behind T.R.U.T.H. when it is presented whether we like the messenger or not. Our country is in grave danger and this is not the time to be concentrating on style, motives, or personalities.

    This is WAR, and we are engaged in the battle for the minds and hearts of men and women. Time is of the essence. That doesn’t mean that we should overlook what troubles us, but it does mean that we should get our priorities in order. I preach to myself, dear friends.

  30. Good evening, RMinNC,
    There is certainly no disagreement about Bummer being an illegal president, but personally I see no light at the end of the tunnel by pursuing that argument with regards to attempting to remove him from office. All of Congress, the courts, and the majority of voters “consider” him to be duly elected and qualified. We have learned that over the last four years.

    If the above want to play that game, then we have to meet them on their turf, and that is impeachment. Otherwise, in the court of public opinion, we will just become fools.

    I’m for whatever means it takes to get him out. Even if the Senate will not remove him, at least the grievances against him can be presented in the House and made public. That is far more than we’ve had so far. The heat might become too searing and he could be forced to resign? One can always hope and pray.

  31. Hi Cabby,

    You’re right; all our drum beating regarding eligibility (or the lack thereof) will get us nowhere.

    Impeachment is the only vehicle available that can remove him, unless Mike Zullo and the Cold Case Posse really have something that will cause him to either resign, be removed, or arrested. I believe they have that evidence!

    While the rest of us are waiting, I think it behooves us to pursue impeachment with our Congresscritters; that, they understand and I’m sensing that many Dems are now turning against him.

    A few of our ‘prophetic’ friends do not see him completing a second term; how that will come about isn’t known.

    People are starting to open their eyes and see this fraud for what he really is. Hannity, Levin, Savage and others are starting to speak out, including ‘private sector’ people like Dr. Carson.

    I’m hoping that this tiny snowball will turn into an avalanche and rid us of this nightmare once and for all.

  32. cabbyaz,
    The foreign born usurper, pretending to be eligible, has committed so many crimes, while pretending to be president, it will take years to sort out the consequences, of this violation of the Constitution.

    Pretending that no violation of the Constitution took place, and everything that has transpired, while the usurper was pretending to be president, is valid law, cannot be tolerated.

  35. SueK,
    You make very good points, and I agree. Patience is a virtue hard to come by during these days.

    No question about it: It would take years to sort it all out, as you say.
    I don’t think any of us here is pretending that no violation of the Constitution has taken place; but recognizing the limitations we are up against, I am all for any action that can get this man out of office as quickly as possible. Time is running out, because the longer he stays in the W.H. the less our chances are of being able to prevail against him.

  36. cabbyaz,
    It’s not the people on this site pretending, it is what the obots want us to believe, we are supposed buy the phony BC, SS card, Selective Service card, and all the other lies. We know the truth, and spread the truth.

  37. Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret):
    July 13, 2012

    “Exposing Obama would reveal the depth of US Government corruption”

    “It is not now politically advantageous for either the Democrat or the Republican Party to tell the truth about Barack Obama; that he is an illegal President and very likely a felon, who has a forged birth certificate, a forged Selective Service registration and is using a Social Security Number not issued to him.

    Both parties are steadfastly protecting Obama to protect their investment in the corrupt political status quo.

    Both Democrats and Republican recognize that exposing Obama will lead to a bloodbath of revelations about their complicity to undermine the Constitution and flout the rule of law, which would jeopardize their comfortable lifestyles. The truth would generate genuine outrage among the American people.”
    January 26, 2013

    “Barack Obama is an illegal President and unindicted felon. Congress, the American media and the courts are engaged in a criminal conspiracy to conceal their complicity in perpetrating the Obama fraud on the American people. Law enforcement and our elected officials have chosen to risk the survival of the country rather than risk the truth.

    The US no longer has representative government. Members of Congress seek election not to uphold the Constitution and serve the American people, but to obtain power and to use that power to accrue professional and financial benefits for themselves and their major supporters. All the traditional means for the American people to seek the redress of grievances have now been blocked by a corrupt government composed of a self-absorbed permanent political elite unaccountable to the people.”

  38. JohnDoeSr’s comment at ORYR:

    “When this finally ends and the complete truth about Obozo and those who aided him in the biggest fraud/hoax in history is revealed, one the most satisfying things will be seeing people like Rush, Beck, Hannity, Coulter, Malkin O’Reilly, Levin., etc. try to weasel their way out of why they not only did nothing to revealed the hoax, but tried to protect Barry from those who tirelessly worked to get out the truth.”

  39. In short, our country will have to be started anew.

  43. Breaking News: Obama Under Full Investigation More Crimes Have Been Discovered!!

  44. SueQ…..thanks for your post at 8:56am

    As the holder of 4 Bronze Stars and Legions of Merit, and 2 Vietnamese Crosses of Gallantry medals earned in Vietnam under REAL COMBAT CONDITIONS with a real live enemy only yards away firing real live bullets at you……I am OFFENDED that this wimpy adminsteration would invent another medal to award to someone sitting thousands of miles from a REAL combat scene and give THAT MEDAL a higher ranking that a medal earned in FACE-TO-FACE COMBAT………..this is insane!

    But what else should we expect from this bunch at the Pentagon and in the White House now…….they have degrade everything else but the bravery of our FRONT-LINE SOLDIERS and now they have done that.

    I hope those military men who are awarded that medal stop and think what did they really do to deserve an award that is higher than an award for REAL COMBAT…..and how do you suppose the soldiers who are in REAL combat think about this new medal?

    Soldiers who are getting their arms and legs blown off may get a Bronze medal, or maybe just a soldiers medal for their lose, most get nothing, but a trip back home……….I fully expect those front line soldiers to complain AND MAKE FUN OF ANYONE WEARING THIS MEDAL…I’m sure they will dubb them the “ARM-CHAIR HERO’S”……


    ps. I wonder what the criteria will be for winning one of these medals? Will it be only from body count from the drone strike? How about how many innocent civilians they kill with the drone? Extra points for children? Maybe it will be by how many drone strikes they launch in a month?….I will be watching to see what is required to win one of these “special” medals……

    I’m sure those awarded the medal will be real proud to wear it. Were I still serving, I would be ashame to wear an award that is ranked higher than an award earned in combat…..real combat.

    Just the opinion of an old soldier who has been there and done that.

  45. pps: that should read 2 Legions of Merit

  46. RMinNC,

    God bless you for your sacrifice! I am so offended for you! I cannot imagine anyone with any self respect accepting one of these. It’s sickening.

  47. Wonder what recipients of multiple medals will say…………….. “Been there, droned that”? This is cheapening TRUE VALOR.

  48. SUEQ……

    It will destroy the MORAL of the REAL FRONT-LINE SOLDIER.

    Knowing that someone sitting behind a chair in a nice warm building, drinking a cup of coffee is going to receive a higher award than a rifle carrying soldier for simply pushing a button, or guiding a drone to a target is DISGUSTING……

    Look for some real comments from the Marines….the Special Forces…Army Rangers…Navy Seals and all other REAL hero’s who face the enemy for a test of their courage on a daily basis……

    What courage does that drone operator show when he guides that pilotless object into a target…the answer is NONE…It’s just another day to him….no sweat, no blood, no tears….and no sleep lost..

    If the Joint Chiefs of Staff want to recognize the drone operate and their cushy jobs…then give them a medal for achievement…..that ranks far below those for front line raw courage…..

  49. RMinNC | February 14, 2013 at 10:56 am |


    It will destroy the MORAL of the REAL FRONT-LINE SOLDIER.
    Maybe that is the goal. Maybe it is just another way to pit Americans against each other. Don’t know. Can’t figure out these NWO people.

  50. RMinNC and SueQ,
    This plan for a medal for “successful” drone operation makes me sick – SICK! It is another attempt to demoralize our combat military and it is shameful and a disgrace. I’m not surprised at anything these days.

    RM, we are humbled to have you walk among us! We all know that you don’t seek accolades, but you and other brave warriors are the reason why we as a nation have been able to live as a free people this long.

    Now we see this usurper and his “foot soldiers” doing everything they can to destroy us and denigrate everything we have held dear. We are angry! We are upset! And we cry!! I pray that there will be a huge outrage over this one.

  51. This entire drone operation has made me tremble right from the start. I’m all for anything that enables our ground troops to be safer but do struggle with this stealth means of killing. No warning for anyone to take cover, just…..WHAM!! Of course, there are arguments both ways.

    What will happen when our enemy obtains the same technology? (Iran and Russia are onto it) How will we feel if drones from an enemy country somehow escape “under the radar” and do to us what we have been doing in Pakistan, etc.? What protection will WE have?

    It is all just too secret and too much under the control of an illegitimate CiC, whom we don’t trust. We have heard how much he thrills over this armchair killing – selecting targets and ordering them to be zapped out. This alone is enough to repulse any decent American.

  52. thank you cabbyaz for the kind words…but I am not deserving of them… ARE RIGHT…I seek no accolades for my service to my country…it was my duty..

    I did not go looking for medals at any time during the times I was in combat… REAL soldier did…..I was just doing my job as I was trained to do it…..war is a dangerous business, and should never be taken lighty by any nation for one simple reason;

    Sooner or later, YOU REAP WILL WHAT YOU SOW.

    God forbid this country is ever invaded, but today with the whole world hateing us… is a definate possibility.

    After all….the mightest nation in the world went down to never rise again after a long, long reign…PAX ROMA.

    We could learn a valubable lesson from history…but we won’t because of our huberus…..

  53. Cabby,

    Seems like there are not very many decent Americans left to be repulsed.

  54. CW…..

    Please note that I have changed my email address….thanks

  55. RMin NC
    It has always been my understanding that we have existing forms of recognition, including medals, that have proven wholly adequate …until now. It is also my understanding that Obama has shown a rather odd, extreme, and troubling emotional fixation with these drone activities. Given his proclivity to action with this newly discovered destructive power , it doesn’t come as any real surprise that he would attempt to elevate it to some higher status…even more disturbing, is the fact that he is using executive power yet again to create some kind of sick legacy within the military establishment.

  56. CW…can you take my comments out of moderation please…..thanks

  57. CW….my last comments to cabbyaz was sent out under the name od Ray instead of RMinNC…sorry bout that……can you still publish them?…thanks….

  58. RMinNC, God bless you sir. You are a hero to all of us and no amount of thanks will ever be enough for the bravery you showed and the risks you took to protect this country and all of it’s citizens. It is sickening what is being done to our military in this time of Obama.

  59. Here are some HERO’s who have been denied their rights by this currect Command-in-Chief….

    This was called a “workplace violance” incident by the CinC instead of the ISLAMIC TERRORIST” attack that it was.

    It has been 4 long years and this terrorist is no closer to being brought to justice than he was the day he com mitted the violant Islamic terrorist attack.

    Our currect resident at the WH (whom is also a Muslim) cannot bring himself to saying what every American knows….

    By the way, this terrorist is still drawing about $6,000 per month of taxpayers money while he sits in jail in Texas…….enough is enough

  60. Another facet to the modern battlefield is that, due to advancing technology, we are now finding ourselves on the cusp of ultra-modern warfare. Pilotless aircraft is not a new concept…what is a new concept, however, is the management of these new assets. We have observed the spill-over of military technology over the years now, into the realm of civil affairs. It has previously been at a non-threatening pace. Now, however, that pace has accelerated at such a rate as to become downright frightening in terms of it’s application. The management of this technology is the job of our representatives. What is of even more concern, is their wide-spread ignorance of these technologies…and the laws already in place that would deal with them. They are so consumed with politics, that they have not been able to see the forest for the trees, so to speak, which has led to a generalized distrust from the populace and an actual failure of job performance. At least in this area. This is disregarding all the other areas they have proven to be deficient in….which is most everything else.

  61. Ray,
    I don’t care what you call yourself. We are indebted to you. God bless you for true valor.

  62. SUEQ….

    No sue…you are not indebted to me….you are indebted to all those brave men and women who lie in military cemetaries all over the world……they are the true hero’s…..

    I too am indebted to them.

  63. and I should add …all those who lie in veterans hospitals that are mangled for life……

  64. Filibuster on Hagel–Vitter: We Have 41

    Republican Senators have the necessary 41 votes to block the confirmation of Chuck Hagel from coming to a vote this week, and will be able to stage a filibuster, according to an interview given by Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) to Breitbart News editor Larry O’Connor on Washington, DC-area WMAL radio this morning.
    “The cloture vote is gonna be very close. It’s gonna be today or tomorrow. We may very well defeat this first cloture vote,” Vitter said.

    ABC News’ Jonathan Karl confirmed that Democrats do not yet have the votes to ensure that Hagel will be confirmed, as of Thursday morning:

    It now looks like Democrats don’t have the votes to get Hagel confirmed, at least not yet.

    That’s because Republicans are determined to block a straight up-or-down vote–at least for now–until Hagel turns over more information on his financial disclosure form and the Obama administration answers more questions about last year’s attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

    Vitter noted that delaying the confirmation vote would give the Senate more time to consider Hagel’s record, including new information that is coming out “every day” about his background.

    Earlier this morning, Breitbart News reported further evidence that a speech Hagel gave to the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee, and which he had not disclosed to the Senate, was likely a formal address, even if it was an extemporaneous one.

    Hagel and the Obama administration have maintained that the ADC speech and many others like it were “informal” and therefore there was no obligation to report them.

    UPDATE: Fox News Channel confirms: “Senior Republican sources [are] telling Democrats they intend to mount a full-scale filibuster of the Chuck Hagel nomination and will block his nomination from receiving an up or down vote.”

  65. thank you cjzak for your kind words.

    Possibly………… “Mahmoud, will you be my Valentine? I just love your stinky suit! We can attract beautiful flies together.”

  67. SueQ….

    I’m really suprised that bummer isn’t kissing him !

  68. Yeah RM, it looks like he’s going to lay one on him. “This magic moment, so different and so new”………….

    This post is in such poor taste, I will be surprised if I’m not banned.

  69. haha Sue….the truth is the truth… is what it is…pictures don’t lie !

  70. Why can’t they be evacuated by helicopters? Why did the ship that dropped off food, not load up atleast some passengers and take them to safety? If they were in sight of the shore………swim, darn it.

  71. Heads up for those in MO. Hope the NRA and the GOA are in there fighting this. Also hope those patriots in MO show up in strength at the capitol there this weekend or before the 90 days is up. I wonder if any of the County Sheriffs or Police Chiefs have yet stood up for the Constitution to protect their citizens from this unconstitutional mandate?

  72. Yes Observer,

    It reminds me of “The Ship of State”! It reminds me of a government that is both unwilling and unable to truly care for it’s own. While it gives weapons to the enemies of our allies, it craps on our dearest friends. While our ambassador et al are being brutally murdered and raped in Benghazi……our president goes to bed.


    Here is what our drone policy is reaping in the countries that proclaim to be our allies……Personally I am sickened by the actions of this government…..

    Now we give our soldiers medals for such conduct…..appalling

    Don’t view this video if you have a weak stomach ……….

  74. Shouldn’t have said unable. We are plenty able! Just not willing.

  75. Is it my imagination or does Mamoud look a lot like BLAGO. The sick SMIRK on Soetoro’s face tells the story………..QUEER, QUEER,QUEER. It is written all over his face ………he wants a piece of Mamoud’s ANUS.
    “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord …he is TRAMPING OUT THE VINTAGE where the GRAPES OF WRATH ARE STORED.”…………….

  76. .
    Look closely………I am sure that there is probably several squadrons of GOOD OLE GREENIE FLIES orbiting close by,(just off camera),and are awaiting to be advised which RUNWAY TO USE for their landing……in all probability it will be runway 00 the heading is 000(runs from “South” to North. ……in CRUDE language means UP the ………………….REAR. (South to North”………..Good OLE GREENIES know where the odor is coming from.

  77. Sueq…………re 5:35 PM
    What does all of that TELL YOU?

  78. Ok,
    This is getting pretty gross here. I will self ban. My post, “Caption this picture”, was an unwise decision. I am sorry.

    Even so, I wish you all a happy Valentines day, and urge you to hold your sweetheart close. Take care.

  79. I am so damn sick of hearing the passengers on the cruise ship WHINING about the conditions aboard………..WHAT THE HELL DO THEY EXPECT……….I DON’T think that CARNIVAL DONE ALL OF THIS INTENTIONALLY. As a former ENGINEER MYSELF I can emphatically say that you CANNOT LOSE 90% of your power generation capability and not have substantial passenger discomfort. THESE PEOPLE WERE TOLD about what had occurred,yet they scream ,whine and threaten the operators instead of trying to cooperate. It sounds as though a large percentage of the passengers are LIBERAL DEMOCRATS. While what happened is REGRETTABLE,I believe that MOST of the CREWMEN were working very hard to make these passengers as comfortable as they could GIVEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES AT HAND. Engineroom fires ARE NOT uncommon. Such a fire can happen for a NUMBER of reasons. Sometimes it is the result of HUMAN ERROR, and sometimes it is the result of MECHANICAL FAILURE. Even the DESIGNERS of the ship are HUMAN,and as such cannot foresee every possible thing that can happen in an engineroom. Simply because many of these occurrences must have the impetus of the operating staff to actually happen. If the alleged engine fire was the result of human incompetency then Carnival has an obligation to ask for a Maritime Court of Inquiry,along with qualified investigators to extract the exact reason for the engine fire. It is probable that the US Coast Guard will conduct a court of inquiry anyway. In older steam ships engineroom fires were in reality engineroom BILGE FIRES,which often were the result of NEGLECT to keep bilges an/or tanktops free of excessive accumulations of residual fuel oil which was often accidentally spilled into the bilges during underway burner changes.. Particularly leaking number 6 bunker oil, which was then the primary boiler fuel after it is PREHEATED,at which point it is an equal to gasoline. If this ship is DIESEL propelled then there is an off chance of a fuel pump failure, and the engine could have fired back through a defective fuel pump. If this occurred it could have easily taken out adjacent power generation machinery as well. If the ship is propelled by gas turbines there is a chance of an engine internal failure.There are a lot of reasons why this could happen,but I seriously doubt that the management of Carnival were negligent in this case. But if Carnival has failed to see to it that all of the REQUIRED PERIODIC inspections were actually carried out then a negligence situation could have existed. In reality it would come down to the competency of the crew of the engine department,particularly the CO right down through the Chief Engineer,and the JUNIOR OFFICERS as well if the accident happened as a result of human failure. At any rate WE SHALL SEE.

  80. Sometimes people need a really stout shot of REALITY to drive a point HOME. Sometimes this must be said in a CRUDE manner to really register the magnitude of the subject matter. Otherwise it is simply passed over,and the words OHHHHH WELLLLLL appear. That is the primary reason why I OFTEN say things using a CRUDE CHOICE OF WORDS. It does get ATTENTION. What I see in the photograph is HARDLY what you would ever expect to see between RESPONSIBLE LEADERS of nations. If the photo is actually a PHOTOSHOP then it becomes the liability of the persons who concocted it in the first place.

  81. This came as an email. It is long, but gives the real truth in rebuttal to several big whoppers given by Bummer:
    Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman
    Liberty Counsel


    In reviewing Tuesday night’s State of the Union Address, I was struck by the President’s hubris in touting all that he has allegedly accomplished while in office – while blaming virtually everything that went wrong on Congress. At least the President has finally stopped blaming George W. Bush for whatever goes wrong in Washington, DC!

    But make no mistake; the President has been caught in some real “whoppers” through this year’s post-speech fact checking process. We can learn a lot about how he intends to govern during his second term from reviewing a few of his most outrageous distortions of truth. Please read my important message below – Mat.

    Political spin in praising one’s own accomplishments is commonplace in politics, especially when one has little positive news to report.

    President Obama has mastered the art of self promotion. In fact, he has all but perfected it – and the closely related skill of playing blame game.

    Capitalizing on the truism that even gross falsehoods can seem believable if they are presented with enough enthusiasm, Barack Obama went over the top on several of his key themes in 2013’s State of the Union Address.

    Let’s get started…

    Barack Obama blamed Congress for passing the “sequestration” bill which, if not changed, will automatically slash spending budgets across the board – including deep cuts into defense spending – at the end of this month. He even called it “a really bad idea.”

    Yet the original “sequestration” plan was hatched by President Obama and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Jack Lew to force Republicans to cave on raising the debt ceiling!

    Congress passed the proposed “sequestration” bill in the deal to raise the debt ceiling – and now the President’s chicken has come home to roost.

    What outrageous hypocrisy! This attempt to transfer blame tells us a lot about what Barack Obama thinks of the American People to whom he was reporting!

    The President also told the nation – with a straight face, no less – that his programs created 6 million jobs in his first term.

    The Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports that 6 million jobs have been “gained” – but just 1.2 million jobs have been created, a number far below expectations. Counter that statistic with the fact that the number of jobs available in the market is about 3.2 million less than before Obama took office.

    The President claims that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare)… “is helping to slow the growth of health care costs.”

    The IRS, just days ago, released a study that says that the cost of a minimal family healthcare policy could be $20,000 annually by 2016 under ObamaCare. That, Mr. President, is a dramatic increase in costs to every American family!

    The President proclaimed… “Over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion — mostly through spending cuts, but also by raising tax rates on the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans.”

    This incredible number is reached through overt accounting “smoke and mirrors” and is disputed by a number of credible accounting firms and agencies.

    The fact is, the United States debt now stands at over $16.5 trillion – up from $10.6 trillion when Mr. Obama took office. We continue to see trillion dollar deficits annually. Remember in 2009 when the President promised… “Today I am pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office”?

    In the address Tuesday night, President Obama promised 29 new programs and outrageously claimed, “Nothing I’m proposing should increase the deficit by a single dime.”

    Good luck on that one, Mr. President.

    ++Here’s the worst part: The tyranny will increase.

    President Obama proudly announced that he is considering issuing extensive Executive Orders on gun control, Internet control (cybersecurity), housing, homosexual rights, and climate change if Congress doesn’t conform to his agenda – in essence bypassing the Legislative Branch and further subverting the Constitution’s separation of powers.

    Reviewing the speech in its entirety, the overall theme was: “I’ve been let down by Congress and the American People, so now I’m going to get it all done by taking unilateral action.” Sadly, we are entering a chilling new phase of the Obama dictatorship.

  82. yes, cabbyaz, and the fact that no one having the floor or sits as a judge will do or say anything about it is proof that we are under siege. ! the media. ! the people testifying on Benghazi should be on trial…our Country, our treasury, terrain and traditions are being destroyed, our Military, our children, our way of life…our thoughts…

  83. cabbyaz | February 14, 2013 at 8:57 pm —

    “… so now I’m going to get it all done by taking unilateral action.””
    “Belafonte is no stranger to controversy, recently advocating that critics of President Obama should be thrown in jail.

    He continued: “When everybody really didn’t quite know what the game would be. Well, the American people, in their maturity, declared themselves fully. We want what Barack Obama is talking about. We want the country to go in that direction.”

    Belafonte said “what fascinates me, is that the face of millions of Americans expressing their desire. The whole political establishment defining its game, that there should be this lingering infestation of really corrupt people who sit trying to dismantle the wishes of the people, the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama.”

    “And I don’t know what more they want,” he said. “The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a Third World dictator and just put all of these guys in jail. You’re violating the American desire.””

  84. CabbyAZ……………..
    Mathew Staver has it exactly right. However I would add to his remarks by saying that there are many people within our 330,000,000 who completely ACCEPT,and believe literally anything anybody tells them,without so much as even a question. Some do not want to know if it is the truth,and some simply don’t give a damn. They are to busy DOING THEIR THING. Still others are so mentally inept that they wouldn’t know the truth about much of anything….even if it jumped up and bit the end of their noses. Then there are still others who believe that because they imagine themselves to be SO INTELLECTUALLY SUPERIOR to everybody else that ONLY what they say and think should be what everybody should say and think. These are the OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS. I think we all know who these people are,and WHAT THEY REALLY ARE. In the final analysis they are all their own worst enemies.

    Unfortunately this (trashing the US) has gone on so long that, now that some have become interested, the list of failed policy and failure statistics is so long that it takes considerable space to list it all. That fact alone will cause some not to pusue becoming informed due primarily to…laziness, lack of interest in political things, and just plain denial. Because of this, every attempt at conveying the truth absolutely needs to be as short, condensed, and concise as possible….only if it matters that we care what these drones think. The heavy lifting in this society has always been done by selfless, dedicated patriots. Believe me when I say that there are indeed thousands upon thousands that are well aware of what is going on, and will not falter when the moment of greatest need arrives. I am of the opinion lately, that perhaps it will be better to allow the tree of liberty to be watered once again, and begin anew, to include purging the dangerous, the debt, and the deadwood. Kind of like the day of J. Edgar Hoover.

  86. OldSailor, Gordo and Papoose,
    Do you think that Bummer in his cockiness may just overstep himself at some point relatively soon? This is like watching a very bad accident happening in slow motion.

    That Belafonte article posted by Gordo is a sample of some of the thinking (or lack thereof, which OldSailor so often reminds us of) that permeates the majority of the black community. Sadly, it is a reflection of many others, too, that are on the “take”.

  87. Hi Cabby,

    If the black community would only wrap their brains around the fact that barky is just a smidge black; he’s 50% white, less than 7% black and 43% + ARAB!

    Do you think that community would feel a bit differently if they were aware of that?

  88. December 10th, 2012

    “Apparently Jamie Foxx is still obsessed with his black messiah Obama”

    “Jamie Foxx just can’t stop talking about his lord and savior Barack Obama, who he says will be acting more true to his black half in his 2nd term than he did in his first term. According to Foxx, black is now the new white.

    Yeah, all we need is more divisive speech about race in this country from people with a large platform.

    Well if that isn’t enough, Foxx also jokes about how he kills all the white people in his upcoming new move. “How great is that” he says …”

    [video & transcript at link]

    “The way the Democrats played the race card this year on multiple issues (voter ID, disagreeing with Obama, etc), it wouldn’t surprise me if they are trying to get this divisive language more into the pop culture and someone like Jamie Foxx is helping make that happen. Just a guess.”

    They are not judging barky by the content of his character.

  90. bob strauss | February 14, 2013 at 11:42 pm |

    Of course they’re not, Bob! Just look at the numbers (by race) of the 2008 and 2012 elections and tell me exactly who are the bigots…

    Ask any black Obama voter what he has done specifically for them or any minority group; I have. The crickets are so loud they’re deafening.

    One think barky’s good at is dividing the country along racial lines. That’s the plan. People like Belafonte, Foxx, and Winfrey are part of it. MLK would be so proud, don’t you think?
