I was just watching my local news here inn Minneapolis-St Paul.

They broke in to show live footage of the first Chilean miner being brought to the surface.

This is good news!

32 more miners to bring to the surface. Fingers crossed, everyone!

Our president would have been looking down the hole for the 13th imam.

Obama would have been too busy golfing or hanging out with his SEIU thug buddies then to give a damn about trapped miners

That thug isn’t MY president....and you’re right!

He’s probably on another vacation and hasn’t a clue what’s
going on in the world.

He just gave a long speech after the first miner came up and he was so full of emotion and DID NOT have to use a teleprompter!!!

It’s amazing to think of the transition these guys are going to have to go through to get back into their lives.

Sorry, but that is all liberal, you need help, psychobabble. They are not spoiled, weak American kids. They are hardy men living in tough conditions since birth. They will be fine in 48 hours.

now 34 more...two rescuers have gone down.....

The second guy they sent down is their equivalent of Navy SEALs, I believe they even train with the SEALs. He's a tactical diver/medic with 10 years of experience. He'll probably be the last person out, which has got to be nerve wracking.

This ia a major miracle, God and modern science work together, but God will take the back seat except in the heart of the miners and family and friends.

The second guy who came up reached in his bag and threw presents to all the rescuers and put his fist in the air hugging everyone in sight! Wow! This is really great and uplifting to watch.

They look happier to see their co workers than their wives.

"Sorry, but that is all liberal, you need help, psychobabble."

I was more referring to the physical transition. They probably won't be able to run out look at the Sun tomorrow morning......
