Reminds me of a song...

You put one foot up.
You put another foot up.
You put another foot up
And you're on board
The drug train.

For some reason, there’s a lot of poor writing in the two articles on this event posted here on FR...

An earlier article described the location as ‘the Gulf of Mexico’, and this one seems to claim that 3=2....

I'm thinking it was the writer's way of claiming the Gulf of California for Mexico.

Little did they know that Mexico already owned the Gulf of California and there is already a Gulf of Mexico.

Certainly a "young genius", regardless. LOL

LA Times: A magnitude-6.9 earthquake shook Baja California early Thursday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey reported, but no tsunami was expected to strike California or elsewhere.

The earthquake, which occurred at 12:15 a.m., was centered about 360 miles southeast of San Diego, on the western edge of the Gulf of California.

A smaller quake, a magnitude-6.2, shook the same area of Mexico at 12:06 a.m.

The perceived shaking was described as “very strong” close to the epicenter.

It was near Agua de Las Flores and Tiburon Island. The Seri Indians live a very difficult and wretched life in this area. Their ironwood carvings are remarkable. Their homes are essentially brush shelters.

If you really want to see them ALL, in a way you never have, then try this.

Click on link. Download the FREE program (takes only 2 seconds), then run it.

It is awesome, has fantastic ‘controls’, and you can see ‘patterns’ of Earthquakes on a global basis.

The lefty journalists these days are so full of their own excrement that their loosened sphincters emit a large quantity of rumbling gas , and consequently they have an "insight" into the tremor from their own sordid lefty bowels. No shite! Like you I can smell their stink from here.No need to panic unless they shite themselves, which would be the greatest contribution any of them could make to God's good earth.

It’s more likely simple transposition. Gulf of California is a ridiculous yankee name for the Sea of Cortez.

The download might take longer, but once you have it and run it, it only uses the internet once (when it starts) to get the latest data. After that it runs completely ‘in-house’ so it should work just as well for you as I.

And you are completely welcome.

Geography is hardly taught in schools right now. The teachers have not even learned basic geography, therefore can't teach what they do not know.

I agree. Why name it after a neighboring friendly state when you can name it after a barbaric foreign conqueror.

The Dutchman’s weather related reporting is some of the very best. He has been incredibly on target.

I was not aware of Dutchsinse forecasting solar flares would disrupt man-made, harmful, HAARP weather manipulation. Excellent forecasting! No wonder that slithering deceptive element demanded his removal off of You-Tube, but his expanding loyal viewing public complained enough the removal was reversed.

There is a theory I have which I would like to ask the Dutchman, concerning the reported ‘missing 9 trillion from the Federal Reserve’ in part, funding of broad-based, ongoing chem-trail spraying.

It always seem the more ‘they’ spray the humanoids the hotter it becomes, at least on the East Coast this winter. There is big money in Chem-Spray Inc, pilots spraying on Easter, Christmas and other holidays are rumoured raking in double time and a half.
