This is the knock-off I’m most familiar with…
I’ve been Jonesin’ for a little Ashley Dugan action… and I know you have too. So here you go.
Can’t tell if it is live or die, or if the translation is even that accurate.
I just spent two weeks out east doing some stuff and now I’m safely back in the Eastern Krasnovian bunker.
What have I missed?
Why do things like this not surprise me?
Normally I wouldn’t ever post anything by Infowars or Alex Jones, but this article looks like it might be legit. It appears Chase Bank is limiting wire transfers and customer withdrawals.
Most people think it was the stock market crash of 1929 that caused the Great Depression, but that was just one of the leading indicators. The real trigger of the Great Depression was the bank runs that came later (which later was the genesis for the FDIC—to help prevent another panic). This move by Chase is worrisome—it definitely is a red flag to be sure.
I was going to post about how David Uberuaga, the NPS superintendent of the Grand Canyon (i.e. the chief ranger), is a corrupt douche…I got the spider sense he was real slime when he told protesters at the gates of the Grand Canyon “I can’t unlock these gates, only Congress can!” So I googled his name. Yeah.
I was going to post about that…but you can do your own private journalism (the only kind left).
But instead, I provide this comic relief.
100,000 cattle killed in a freak storm in South Dakota. My prayers go out to the ranchers and their families—I hope that they find a way to pull through all of this.
Do dogs have brains? I submit that to you, dear reader.
Our insurance contribution rose 67%. Mrs. QM is a union member and the last contract had a stepped and predictable increase. Unless there were unforeseen, dramatic increases in the base cost of the coverage. Gee, who didn’t see that coming? Thanks, ACA!
26% increase in 2014 over 2013.
Bit more enthusiastic over this earlier in the day, before heat and lack of sleep had caught up to me so badly.
Let’s say that this is all hearsay.
Anyway, there is a website, mahouka.jp, which apparently indicates that they are making an Anime of Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei.
That property isn’t Tom Kratman writing magical girls, but it is apparently closer than I would have thought possible for a Japanese light novel to get. (The genre, not that girl in the Terra Nova books who might have magic.)Continue reading
You know that if the Treasury Secretary is publicly admitting that we are teetering on the edge of an economic abyss and that there is little or nothing he can do to stop it, then things are bad. The messaging coming out of the White House for the last five years has been necessarily positive in order to avert a general panic among the masses. It was panic and bank runs that kicked off the Great Depression, and the administration has been going through great pains to prevent a similar scenario from occurring now. But when the Treasury Secretary comes out and says something this dire, it should set alarms off all over the place.
“I don’t have any more—what used to be called extraordinary measures. They’re used so frequently that extraordinary seems a little bit of an overstatement now. They’re accepted tools of managing to the limit. We don’t have any more. We just don’t have any more. And Congress has to act,” Lew added.
The secretary said the U.S. is entering unprecedented territory as the Oct. 17 deadline approaches and he urged Congress to act before the U.S. is forced to default on its debts, a situation economists have warned would have a devastating impact on U.S. and global markets.
And on top of that the International Monetary Fund is making some pretty alarming statements as well.
The impact of a slowdown on US Federal Reserve asset purchases had been expected to dominate this year’s annual meetings but the Fed’s decision to hold off on tapering has removed that focus.
Instead, the world’s economic policy makers will have a ringside seat as they assemble in a US capital where much of the federal government is shutdown and a potential default is just days away if Congress cannot resolve its differences. Ms Lagarde said that raising the debt ceiling is “mission critical” for the world economy.
In the immortal words of Hudson:
Does Obama even understand the words that come out of his mouth? I wonder how his union buddies would feel about this?
The president is a drooling mouth-breather.
More whining on Facebook. Oh whoa is me… and whatnot.
What is most upsetting to me is how many people seem to be affected by this. The tendrils of government influence have encroached upon an unbelievable number of things in our everyday lives. How is this possible? How have we become so dependent upon the government when it should be utterly reliant upon us—the people?
That’s the real question.
The thing went together in no time and it looks nice. I think I am going to totally geek this thing out before I’m done with it—but for the time being I just have to get it to the range and get it broken in.
