Americans to Gitmo?

Amazibg developments occurring in the United States Senate.. A provision in the Defense Reauthorization bill introduced by Senator John McCain and Carl Levin give the Executive Branch of government increased power to classify American citizens on the homeland 'enemy' combatants and charge them with terrorism--or not charge them at all and hold them indefinitely. The ACLU and others strongly oppose the measure.

Last night, and amendment to change that portion of the bill failed and it remains now..it is going to be voted on by the full Senate.

Debate yesterday occurred between John McCain and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who states that American citizens could even end up at Guantanamo Bay under a strict interpretation of the language..

The White House has threatened to veto the bill if the controversial language remains--something some analysts doubt since many other important defense elements will be included..

All eyes now on the Senate, where McCain says the youthful Kentucky Senator doesn't understand the danger and Paul says the ancient Arizona Senator doesn't understand the bill of rights..

High drama expected..

Hunt in the wild: Shopping in America, 2011


Screen cap from YouTube 
Cops keeping the peace.. perhaps pepper spray would have been better in this story, where police slammed a grandfather to the ground at a WalMart, leaving him unconscious and bloody.. And his crime, you ask? People got rowdy in the game section. The man’s grandson got trampled, so he put the video game he was holding in his waistband in order to free up his hands and lift the boy out of the crowd… and then the cops moved in, slamming the grandfather’s head against the concrete floor.


This story could disturb anyone's holiday spirit.

…mayhem and misery is the only thing being found in the stories being reported about Black Friday, along with $2 waffle makers.


“All of a sudden, you see this little boy run up and wailing and yelling, ‘Grandpa, Grandpa,’ and crying his eyes out”


And now, thankfully for Youtube, people can view the actions of the police and decide if they were justified.. 

Heads slamming..facing mashing.. deals bashing. Shop, shop, shop, like no one cares.. party like it's 1999.

So this is Christmas

And what have you done? Shot a good neighbor.. in a store on the run?

The Christmas shopping season mayhem began Black Friday, for better or worse. In many cases worse.


The season actually began a bit earlier this year than others--many big box stores opened their doors late in the evening on Thanksgiving night. Before leftovers were even cleaned off tables, people in sweatpants and pajamas were shopping in long lines.  


And in many instances, they had to deal with violence and fellow shoppers acting out.

In Los Angeles, a women pepper sprayed other shoppers who she wanted to keep away from the Xbox that she wanted.

There were scuffles over $2 waffle makers, shootings, and people stomping on others including children.

While stores are now saying that there were record shoppers on Black Friday, it's questionable as to what the immediate "black" margin of profit they will get. Some stores offered 70% discounts.. others had just as many bargains as shoppers. More shoppers does not always equal more profit.

But it did equal more headline news and fodder for comics who are ready to laugh at shoppers--or other nations ready to mock the West's constant hunt for bargains and material items. Items that the Eastern world make under duress or just a dollar a day.

NEW FEARS OF EURO FAILURE-- AND WHAT IT COULD LEAD TO IF IT COLLAPSES

AFP Photo/Thomas Lohnes
The European economy continues to travel down a rocky path.. But now the British government is privately warning of a Euro break up -- and  riots. According to TELEGRAPH reporter James Kirkup, the Treasury in Britain confirmed earlier in November that contingency plans began to be made for a collapse and unrest.

Embassies have been instructed to prepare for significant issues. Some of those issues include the possibility that in the not too distant future, a citizen will not even be able to withdraw cash.

The nightmare scenarios may appear unlikely, but the fears coupled with news of Italy's impending collapse and the Euro's constant troubles, it gets easier to imagine a world where these financial failures could occur.

The shock waves of such an event would surely bring a heavy weight across the world. The albatross of bad investments and debt will cause other nations to suffer the same pain that the UK would deal with. 

Unemployment rates along with a bad financial mess, bank failures, and a breakdown of government order. This, again, is the very real fear in Europe, and it's tough to assume that any economic breakdown would not lead to violent consequences or  a collapse, whole or part, in social order.

Breach: Obama security plan found in a gutter!

Only day after the White House was shot by an alleged would be assassin of President Barack Obama, now comes this: The President's security plans were found by an Australian newspaper--in a gutter on a street!

No joke: The secret document--or at least the document that should have been a secret--was called "Overall Program and Orders of Arrangements." And it was found on a Canberra street by a reporter who works for the Sydney Morning Herald..
Obama in Australia: AP photo

The significant security breach comes only days after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez was arrested for what authorities say was an attempt to assassinate President Obama in the White House. Gun shots didn't penetrate the home on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, but officials believe that is exactly what was attempted..

But now, the new security breach may be an even bigger lapse: It was 120 pages long and had a minute by minute description of what Obama would do during his trip, and it even described in detail the limo that the President would get in to!

There were even dozens of phone numbers for government and military staff in the document. Ripe a ready to be read by someone.. in this case a reporter who happened to come across the paperwork...

This weekend's Midwest rumbles


Photo: Oklahoman newspaper, Jim Beckel

It has been, without question, of one of the strangest years ever. Not saying that means the end times are falling upon us or even the the new Madrid Fault is ready to give way, but news that occurred overnight can make one sure think that.

Original news accounts of a record 5.6 quake in the Midwest seemed frightening. That strong? Oklahoma? ..where the winds blow through the prairies? 

It happened late Saturday night, centered four miles east of Lincoln County.. 10:53 pm, and it lasted almost a full minute until 10:54 pm--45 seconds according to geological experts..

The other amazing factor in this earthquake is that it was felt in Illinois, Kansas, Arkansas, Tennessee and also in Texas..

Numerous local reports are now existent of buckled roads, cracked sideways, homes with large messes of broken dishes and shattered plaster.. and rattled nerves in a nation that saw a major quake in the summer on the East Coast that was felt all the way to Canada..

The other factor that makes the Oklahoma shake more alarming: Eight earthquakes have been reported in 24 hours now.. the US Geological Survey is still unclear of the source of the quake, since Oklahoma is not near a plate boundary..

According to a CNN report on the quake this morning, the shake has rattled Oklahoma to the point where a highway has buckled.. one person has been injured.

It's only a test..


The Emergency Alert System is going to scare lots of people today around 2pm, but the government is trying to limit the impact of fear by telling Americans it's just a test. Don't panic. What is a bit troubling though is the length of time the test will last--three and a half minutes.. If it was a real emergency I'd assume it would be 24/7 broadcasting with the same exact computerized voice and very few details. The real details would come online, unless of course the government snatched control with a kill switch at the last minute and shut down all net connections and took them over for themselves and the military..

Today's potentially frightening test has been planned out for some time.. But the reasoning for it? The disasters the United States and world forced in 2011 make it more clear that this system must be test.. So they say. And disasters did occur a'plenty.

Not to sound the conspiracy alarm or panic button, but this test is intriguing when coupled with a summer announcement from NASA's head telling his employees to prepare for disasters.. Not mentioned of course was what disaster, when, and how bad.. if NASA knew..

Strange year indeed.. 
Earthquakes in the East.. West.. Midwest.. Floods.. Droughts.. Tornadoes.. Tsunamis.. Disease outbreaks.. Hurricanes.. Blizzards in October.
Ok.. I get it,  TEST THE ALERT SYSTEM.
