THIS IS THE WAR THAT NEVER ENDS

It seems to go on and on.. 
After 11 years of war in Afghanistan, a new milestone has been hit: 2,000 United States soldiers have died during the conflict. 
There are few people at home now that pay any attention to what our troops are doing in that  nation. There aren't major bold headlines stating that 2,000 are dead as occurred in 2005 when the Iraq war deaths topped that tragic number.

The death tolls has been climbing in recent months in Afghanistan as more attacks take place on US troops. More police turning on those who trained them.. and much more resistance is taking place in some strongholds across the country..

Another untold story is the troops that don't fall in the fields of battle: There have been countless other stories of troops losing legs and arms, having mental and physical ailments.. and being scarred by a war in a faraway land that Americans stopped paying attention to.

And why did we stop paying attention to Afghanistan? It was a major issue in 2008 when Pres…

Somewhere in Time.. feels like so long ago now

Last night I listened a bit to Art Bell's 'Somewhere in Time.' Thankfully Mr. Bell has not yet been successful in getting Premiere Radio to stop broadcasting the past shows. Because when he finally does win, that will mean listeners will be stuck with right wing propaganda and .. the intelligence of George Noory. 
Last  night the past came back with Howard Rheinhold being interviewed about how the Internet would change everyone's life. They talked about 'smart phones' without calling them that, but instead they commented in amazement how you can get the Internet by just having a wireless card in an airport. 
So I thought back for a second in time. 2002. Where was I. What was I. I was a 22 year old kid who was, at that time, pretty addicted to the Internet. I had my own website by the time I was 18 years old.. the more I came to know how the net worked the better I liked it. I used email (really don't much anymore besides for work) and I also had a large gigan…

Dallas Texas suburb hit by minor earthquake

The stars are night are deep and bright, and so was a 3.4 magnitude earthquake that struck a Dallas Texas suburb, rattling nerves and knocking pictures off of walls. No major heartache or breakage, the airport kept on going, and despite the chance of aftershocks, life is going on as normal. As normal as you can get after your area gets an earthquake, even though it rarely does. The USGS said the quake hit at 11:05 CDT time Saturday .. 911 was flooded with calls, and a subsequent 3.1 aftershock occurred in proximity to the stronger shake..
This is yet another example of how the earth is changing, in some manner, and places that were once safe zones for certain things aren't anymore. Of course someone can say 'go back in history' and see all of the other times instances like this occurred in Texas--which they have--and prove me wrong. But perhaps the better thing to say would be during my lifetime, and maybe yours too, things like this are just plain out weird. Next thing you…

Did FOX News inadvertently get what it wanted?

I feel a bit bad for Shepard Smith of FOX NEWS this week. The network was covering a high speed car chase--as it so often does during slow news days--when the driver of the car drove down a dirt stretch, got out, and proceeded to commit suicide on live TV for all to see. Smith tried to get the station to stop airing before the shot to the head occurred, but was too late: Anyone paying attention saw a man take his own life on the news.. (MORE HERE)

The entire situation is pretty tragic. And quite surprising. I thought a 5 second delay was the normal course of business when covering life events. In this instance there was quite a FOX NEWS FAIL.

Or was it success?
Think about it..
In covering live car chases on television, what is a network expecting will happen? What are executives behind the camera hoping for? They want excitement! Drama! They want cars to zoom through residential neighborhood, being chased by police! They want high speed chases on expressways! Anything that can get someon…

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 28 2012, NEWS OF THE WORLD


Amazing images revealed of a watery past on Mars: New photos from Curiosity find evidence of a streambed.. Water once flowed on the red planet. At this point it seems to be a common belief: There was once water on Mars. What happened? Did life have time to evolve into something? When did Mars dry up? Why? A massive solar event? Evolution and devolution? Maybe a nuclear war between nations on the planet? The possibilities are endless and with every new discovery that water existed, more theories will abound. . . Amazing stuff. NASA's Curiosity may be the story of 2012.

Another eruption on earth: Mount Marapi in Sumatra..

Stinkhole? Reports claim that Louisiana sinkhole smell is getting worse..
GEO-PROBES PLANNED FOR LAND NEAR SINKHOLE..
Texas Brine says that the sinkhole was caused by tremors..
More land is falling into the Bayou sinkhole..

Trial of the arrested Vatican butler about to begin..

A 'breaking up' of the earth's crust under the Indian Ocean

This website has written before about the April twin earthquakes in the Indian Ocean--8.6 and 8.2 in magnitude .. But now the NEW SCIENTIST has published an article reporting that the earth is cracking and breaking up under the Indian Ocean!

Scientists, in essence, are now looking into the earth changes in the post quake ocean. The earthquakes that large in magnitude typically occur at the boundary of tectonic plates. These didn't. So they were probably strike-slip earthquakes. Of course none have ever been recorded that strong..

The NEW SCIENTIST explains that the earth's crust began a once in a million year process of breaking a tectonic plate. A plate torn in two..

Supernova in the sky. Is the sun going to go wild?

Just read a very interesting but unscientific article on a website claiming that the sun was getting whiter brighter an hotter than ever before.. There weren't any findings within the text of the story that back up the author's point of view but there were rather vague memories from when he was younger.. He recalls a time when the sun was more yellow and less heated, according to his generic recollection of events..

It's an interesting thought, plus one that others have spoken about in recent years. There seems to be a fear that the sun is going super nova.. It's the newest end of time end of the world conspiracy concern--and has little to no hardcore evidence backing up that theory..

But I traveled into my own memories ... I recall, as well, a bright orange yellow sun. I remember hot days that were not oppressive.. Whether what the author of of ConspiracyHQ's story believes is a real fear or not, my memory also had me thinking of a kinder and gentler period of tim…

I get it .. College kids like to binge drink

But the idea of placing an alcohol enema directly into your rear end seems to go be directly opposed to every form of common sense. What about the old days of ANIMAL HOUSE like behavior where at least one would enjoy the taste of the liquor .. But the enema maybe is quicker.

Forget about beer pong and bongs..hello anal lubrication with an onslaught of alcohol.. And now parents have something new to worry about: Binge drinking with a new angle.. And the angle all takes place in the 'back of the house' so to speak..

Majestic fall nights

If you are in the Northeast part of Pennsylvania, you already know tonight is the perfect fall night. Maybe it is where you are too, should you be absent the Pennsylvania skies.. 
There are a tremendous amount of stars visible tonight. Maybe it's the fresh cold air that got rid of the chemtrails and smog.. maybe it's just that right time of year to be outside--or maybe it's due to the fact that the street light in front of Horror Report home base is down for the count, unlit for days , actually nights, now..
Nonetheless, I gazed a bit at the stars while I had the chance. The breeze that was blowing was the kind that sent a cool chill down your spine but reminded you of the cold shivers that are on the way.
There is just something about fall that makes your heart get both melancholy and vibrant all at the same time.
My wife commented to me tonight that the smell of fall is both awesome but depressing. She's right.

A new factoid about America: Is the dream vanishing?

The worldwide press is paying more attention to this tidbit than American counterparts: There are more Americans now that die as a result of suicide than from car crashes.. the UK DAILY MAIL reports on a study conducted by the American Journal of Public Health, which believes that suicide is under counted..

The DAILY MAIL headline however says this: "More Americans now commit suicide than die in car crashes as miserable economy takes it toll"

The world itself has seen some strange occurrences involving the collapse of humanity recently..Whether it's the spike in suicides around the globe or just kids being abandoned in Greece, there are some rough times facing people.

ZOMBIES INVADE SCRANTON--MOSTLY TO GET DRUNK

I have said it before and unfortunately I am going to say it again: I am quite tired of zombies.. Yes, even me, the HORROR REPORTER, is sick of hearing about them.
If it's not the government issuing fake warnings about zombies instead of talking to citizens as adults it's zombie conferences--much like the one now taking place in Scranton, PA. It's the Lackawanna Historical Society's fourth annual Scranton After Dark Walking Tour, and men and women dressed in zombie attire are roaming the streets of the Electric City.
But the premise is interesting. I'm relatively close. I didn't actually know about this but if I did I may have tried to attend for the fun of it. The tour the Historical Society does is a virtual walking tour of the macabre of the city of Scranton, such as how bodies were stored in basements of businesses during the flu outbreak in the early 20th century, or tales of voices still being heard in some buildings. There were hangings in the town square. …

Wells back with Saturday night UFOs

The Caravan to Midnight is once again ditching politics and new world order conspiracy.

In turn, John B Wells will host a second weekend Saturday night show with UFOs as the topic.

This week, Wells brings in Vince Rotonda and Colet Abedi, both producers for a new TV series called UNSEALED ALIEN FILES.

It's worth noting that narration of the show is done by someone with a familiar voice--Wells.

According to Coast To Coast AM's website, the topic tonight with both will be government cover ups of the subject, UFO sights and abductions, and photoshopped pictures ..

Should be interesting.

As John B would see, brew the proper cup of tea and board the Caravan to Midnight.
