  • Trump's America: Eastern Market plot "reserved for future internment camp”

    A sign bearing a presidential seal has been posted on a fenced-off plot in Eastern Market designating the area the site of a “Future Internment Camp.” Printed in dull government hues and scrawled with President Donald Trump's signature, the sign citing "Executive order 9066" almost appears real. Fortunately, it’s not. But the street artist behind the message says the notion that Trump will someday put people in detention centers for their ethnicity is not farfetched. The sign on Winder Street near Orleans was created by Plastic Jesus, a Los Angeles-based artist known best for public works of social commentary. A...

    **SNIP** In addition to touting the opening of the enrollment period, Obama took on the law's critics in his weekly address. "What we're talking about is no longer just a law, and it's certainly not the myths and scare tactics that the cynics have peddled our way for years," Obama said. "This is healthcare in America. And the bottom line is, Americans like it."

    ".....There are good reasons why society admires courage and despises cowardice. Fear is one of the primary subjects taught in primary and secondary schools both public and private. Teaching fear to young people is a kind of collective child abuse. We are raising a generation of paranoid neurotics. Our children are being taught, erroneously, that individuals and the environment are delicate and fragile. ....Those who are the most paranoid seem to know the least about the objects of their anxieties. For example, fear of genetically modified foods, glutens, and hydraulic fracturing are based almost solely on complete ignorance of these...

    The patient is one of two Yale School of Public Health doctoral students who recently returned from Liberia. The students were not in direct contact with Ebola patients in Liberia, but officials said the student interacted with at least one person who was later diagnosed with Ebola. Workers at the Yale School of Public Health expressed legitimate concerns Thursday about whether sufficient precautions were taken upon the students’ return. The students volunteered to stay away from work for 21 days, but school officials decided that was not necessary. School of Public Health Dean Paul Cleary explained in a letter to...

    With Obamacare shaping up as a public policy disaster that is the equivalent of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, the Hindenburg, the Bay of Pigs, and Desert One combined, perhaps we should go back and take in Ronald Reagan’s warning about this back in 1961.  Reagan said that socializing health care would require socializing the patients, and voila, we have Obamacare canceling insurance plans previously agreed to between consenting adults.But Reagan also warned that doctors would come to be regulated, too: Today, the relationship between patient and doctor in this country is something to be envied any place. The privacy, the...

    'As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can,' says merchant naval officerIn an excellent case of "here's a sentence you won't read every day", Britney Spears has emerged as an unlikely figurehead in the fight against Somali pirates. According to reports, Britney's hits, including Oops! I Did It Again and Baby One More Time, are being employed by British naval officers in an attempt to scare off pirates along the east coast of Africa. Perhaps nothing else – not guns, not harpoons – is quite as intimidating as the sound...

    (CNSNews.com) – Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the Florida governor is using “scare tactics” that can hurt people’s health by not allowing so-called navigators to set up shop in a county health building to enroll people in health insurance exchanges mandated by Obamacare, according to National Public Radio. "It's unfortunate that scare tactics are being used which may actually prevent people from getting healthy in the first place," Sebelius said Sept. 18 on NPR’s “Morning Edition.” Gov. Rick Scott, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty met in August about how the $54 million...

    So now, Barack Obama (I refuse to use the word “president” because that would imply leadership) has distanced himself from all responsibility for releasing illegal alien criminals upon us because of the pending sequestration budget cuts. The cuts have not even happened, and may not happen, but he is punishing us ahead of time because we, the people, have not put enough pressure on Congress to cave in to his demands. How many murders and rapes of Americans will be attributed to this latest release of illegals? None will ever be acknowledged by the lapdog government agents who call themselves...

    Thursday night's terror scare on a Delta Airlines flight from New York to Madrid began when an air marshal became suspicious of a passenger of Pakistani descent who had just left a lavatory, and ended with a heavily armed SWAT team storming the plane, only to find no terrorist and no bomb. It was another false alarm in the air that had some in law enforcement questioning the judgment of federal air marshals. And over the new two weeks, prior to and during the London Olympics, there will be teams of marshals on virtually every U.S. carrier flight into or...

    There is no possible interpretation of this under which this isn't wildly unconstitutional. While the test is only going to be TEMPORARY, I DO NOT TRUST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WITH THIS POWER, NOR SHOULD ANY AMERICAN! No one man should have the ability to shut down ALL RADIO & TV broadcasting. If this were to be done when the Obama Regime actually intended to carry out certain plans to further consolidate and usurp power, rather than a 'test,' it would constitute the grossest violation of the Constitution in American history. It would mark the beginning of a real-live dictatorship...

Kennedy airport shortly after take-off Sunday when an engine suddenly shut down.

    WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (AP) -- A dance troupe from Florida caused a rush-hour terror scare when they ditched their cars in the Lincoln Tunnel and tried to run to a TV appearance in Manhattan while wearing their camouflage costumes. The dancers drove about 1,000 miles so they could appear Wednesday on BET's live "106 & Park" show. But they hit traffic at the tunnel, which connects New Jersey and New York City and is just two miles from the TV studio. The five young women and three young men decided to sprint the rest of the way. They left their adult...

"After leaving Singapore there was an explosion, there was a loud bang followed by another one, and then a rattling of the cabin," he said.

    A Market Forecast That Says ‘Take Cover’ WITH the stock market lurching again, plenty of investors are nervous, and some are downright bearish. Then there’s Robert Prechter, the market forecaster and social theorist, who is in another league entirely. Prechter is convinced that we have entered a market decline of staggering proportions — perhaps the biggest of the last 300 years. ...... Originating in the writings of Ralph Nelson Elliott, an obscure accountant who found repetitive patterns, or “fractals,” in the stock market of the 1930s and ’40s, the theory suggests that an epic downswing is under way, Mr. Prechter...

    According to liberal economic Paul Krugman, a "third depression" will occur if nations tighten their belts and attempt to balance their budgets. Forget about the riots in Greece over a social welfare system the government couldn't maintain or a $1.4 trillion annual U.S. budget deficit. Krugman claimed that the threat of deflation supersedes both of those results of runaway government spending - that is higher taxes in the long run and a debt to future generations.
