Obama Administration’s War on Coal Claims 1,200 More Jobs

 

Coal producer Alpha Natural Resources announced today that it is “eliminating 1,200 jobs companywide, including 400 with the immediate closing of eight mines in Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania,” The Associated Press reports. Company officials cite “a regulatory environment that’s aggressively aimed at constraining the use of coal” for the closures, adding to the growing list of American energy producers who say the Obama administration’s excessive red tape has contributed to thousands of recent layoffs.

The Girl With Large Breasts...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sitting together on a train were Pres. Obama, George W. Bush,

 

a little old lady, and a young girl with large breasts.

The train goes into a dark tunnel and a few seconds later

There is the sound of a loud slap.

 

When the train emerges from the tunnel,

Obama has a bright red hand print on his cheek.

 

No one speaks.

 

The old lady thinks: Obama must have groped the

Blonde in the dark, and she slapped him.

 

The blonde girl thinks: Obama must have tried

To grope me in the dark, but missed and fondled

The old lady and she slapped him.

 

Obama thinks: Bush must have groped the blonde in the dark.

She tried to slap him but missed and got me instead.

 

George Bush thinks: I can't wait for another tunnel,

So I can slap the stuffing out of Obama again!!!

Family traveling with infant twins hands out candy, ear plugs on plane

 

Parents flying with small children know how important it is to have an arsenal of toys and other goodies to keep your kids occupied. But one couple is apparently winning kudos from their fellow passengers for packing some treats for the neighbors too.

 

Parents of 14-week-old twin boys reportedly handed out bags of candy and ear plugs to fellow passengers on their cross-country flight from San Francisco in an effort to preemptively win over hearts and minds in case the infants threw in-flight tantrums, according to the Daily Mail.

 

Inside the bag, which had Jolly Ranchers and other candy, had a note which read: "We're twin baby boys on our first flight and we're only 14 weeks old! We'll try to be on our best behavior, but we'd like to apologize in advance just in case we lose our cool, get scared or our ears hurt. Our mom and dad (AKA our portable milk machine and our diaper changer) have ear plugs available if you need them."

Hello all.

 

Was dropping by to see if you trusted folks are seeing the same heretical nonsense in the MSM regarding the Romney 47% nonsense.

 

It appears to be a pre-planned coordinated attack by the MSM who had advance warning.

 

Last I looked 53% outnumbers 47%, and that 53% didn't work out so well for the Occupy numbskulls last year.

This action may put WV in the red column. Quitely. Stealthy. Little ankle biters in the Electoral College, among a few others.

The "Logistics" of Intelligence

 

http://www.formerspo...telligence.html

 

Mitt Romney finally received his first national intelligence briefing on Monday. A campaign spokesman said the GOP presidential nominee met with "members of the intelligence community" at a federal building in the Los Angeles area. The briefing lasted for more than two hours (emphasis ours). Romney's update came more than three weeks after the Republican convention in Tampa, raising questions about the apparent delay. During recent campaigns, presidential challengers have typically received their first intel briefings within days of the nominating convention.

The Plus-Size MRI Machine

 

David Washington has encountered a hurdle to getting the medical treatment he needs to return to work as a mechanic: He can't find an imaging device large enough to accommodate his 630 pounds.

Scissors-32x32.png

As the percentage of obese Americans continues to rise, hospitals demand larger, more powerful imaging machines that can fit any patient and penetrate greater masses of tissue. Because body fat can disrupt the quality of images, companies also are developing software that can produce crisper scans without upping the doses of potentially harmful radiation.

 

The larger scanners are part of a growing trend in medical equipment, which include longer needles and sturdier beds to accommodate the needs of obese patients.

"The U.S. is the biggest market for us, so every product we build has the obese American patient in mind," said Bernd Montag, chief executive of Siemens AG's imaging division, which makes computed tomography, or CT, scanners to support patients well over 600 pounds, though its MRI machines remain smaller. "It more or less has turned into a design requirement."

Camp Bastion attack a revenge op from Pakistani ISI?

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/325094/was-pakistan-behind-camp-bastion-attack-jonathan-foreman#

 

The raid on the Camp Bastion base by the Taliban last Friday was on every level a highly successful enemy operation, even given the fact that the U.S. and NATO defenders killed at least 14 of the attackers, perhaps wiping out their entire force.

After all, the destruction of six U.S. Harrier jump-jets and the killing of a U.S. Marine lieutenant colonel in charge of a Harrier squadron represent a level of achievement that would have pleased U.S. or British commandos in World War II.

But the raid may be more significant because of the skill and planning it required — skill and planning far beyond the reach of most of the guerilla bands that are loosely termed the Taliban. Even the most experienced and best funded of our opponents in Afghanistan, such as the Pakistani-sponsored Haqqani network, would presumably have great difficulty in pulling off such an operation without considerable assistance.

It seems likely that the special forces of a professional army planned the raid, and trained, advised, and led the raiders — that is if they did not actually take part in it. Those special forces would, of course, be those of Pakistan.

I wonder if they cleaned up the language? Some of what I heard was 'hood' talk.
