Stay classy Verizon, you heartless swine.

Melissa’s father passed away at the end of January. She’s just now settling his estate, and most companies she has dealt with have been accommodating and understanding. The exception? Verizon Wireless, which told Melissa that it was her fault she hadn’t been able to contact them until they sent a collection notice. She owes—or, rather, her father’s estate owes—$362.80 that she doesn’t have on hand. They’re making a sad and difficult time even worse……

Obama the Invisible

The man is like Superman, but the Superman in Superman II who goes to his lair with his girl to have steak and get some lovins’ while General Zod and his cronies take the earth over.  Ok, its like that, except instead of Superman its Obama. And instead of Zod, its everyone else in the world.

Time to bomb the middle east again!

The United Nations seems on the brink of taking a momentous decision. After hanging back for days the Americans have now not only backed the British and French resolution on Libya but beefed it up. The fact that the French foreign minister, Alain Juppe, will be here in person is a sign of French confidence that the Russians and Chinese won’t block the resolution…..

Distraction from the real news…

I find it interesting that whenever there is a major operation overseas, there seems to be a major ‘operation’ on domestic soil. Libya is about to torch its own oil fields, we will go into the country to ‘secure’ them, getting another foothold in the mideast. The Wisconsin distraction and labor revolts organized by the ‘tea party’ is doing a great job keeping the middle east from the headlines.

  • USA needs to keep these headlines quiet if there is any chance of consumer confidence increasing in the near future. These sorts of stories are a buzzkill.

  • ‎”Any production losses out of Libya could be quickly absorbed by other countries like Saudi Arabia, which can ramp up production as much as another five million barrels per day” from the article, what complete nonsense, Saudis have already overestimated their peak flow by 60%… they pull these numbers out of thin air to keep things positive. Just like they reported January home sales were up… sure, if you figure in foreclosure sales / cash deals… otherwise, maybe January’s numbers weren’t so rosy.

HFCS linked to increase in blood pressure.

A University of Colorado study found that even people who eat a healthy, low-sodium diet may be at risk of high blood pressure due to a commonly-found food additive. High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is found in almost all processed, prepared, or packaged foods, was shown to increase blood pressure by up to 32%.
