U.S. Army Builds A Fake City To Be Used For Training Exercises http://weaselzippers.us/174249-u-s-army-builds-a-fake-city-to-be-used-for-training-exercises/

 

MODEL-TOWN_2820900b.jpg

 

The US army has built a fake city designed to be used during combat training exercises.

 

The 300 acre ‘town’ includes a five story embassy, a bank, a school, an underground subway and train station, a mosque, a football stadium, and a helicopter landing zone.

 

Located in Virginia, the realistic subway station comes complete with subway carriages and the train station has real train carriages.

The subway carriages even carry the same logo as the carriages in Washington DC.

 

There are also bridges and several other structures which can be transformed into different scenarios.

Survey: 1 in 4 Americans Don’t Know Earth Revolves Around The Sun http://weaselzippers.us/174112-survey-1-in-4-americans-dont-know-earth-revolves-around-the-sun/

 

Americans are enthusiastic about the promise of science but lack basic knowledge of it, with one in four unaware that the Earth revolves around the Sun, said a poll out Friday.

 

The survey included more than 2,200 people in the United States and was conducted by the National Science Foundation.

 

Ten questions about physical and biological science were on the quiz, and the average score — 6.5 correct — was barely a passing grade.

 

Just 74 percent of respondents knew that the Earth revolved around the Sun, according to the results released at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago.

 

Fewer than half (48 percent) knew that human beings evolved from earlier species of animals.

I would imagine there are many religious folks that would take exception to that tidbit.

Would be interesting to see what the actual question and answer options were.

I went and looked at the survey a few days ago and the wording could be confusing, but there was some other question "like" is the earth flat and it had several % saying yes. It seemed like about 10% were wrong on even the most basic questions it asked.

44 Obscure Facts You Didn't Know About U.S. Presidents http://mashable.com/2013/07/04/us-presidents-fun-facts/

 

A sample:

 

9. William H. Harrison

 

William_H._Harrison.jpg

 

Democrats ran a smear campaign during Harrison's campaign that tried to cast him as an out-of-touch old fogey who would rather "sit in his log cabin, drinking hard cider" than run the country. Harrison one-upped the haters by adopting the log cabin and hard cider as campaign symbols. He even commissioned bottles of hard cider shaped like log cabins.

Alleged Bill Clinton Sexual Harassment Victim: ‘Hillary Clinton is the War on Women!’ http://www.tpnn.com/2014/02/17/alleged-bill-clinton-sexual-harassment-victim-hillary-clinton-is-the-war-on-women/

 

With the 2016 presidential election on the horizon, much speculation is being made about who the candidates will be on each side of the political aisle. For many on the left, the frontrunner is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton, who has come under intense criticism for her handling, or failure to adequately handle, the events leading up to and following the terrorist attack at Benghazi, finds herself the subject of another heated debate. That is whether she is fit to occupy the office of the presidency based upon her role in the ‘Nuts and Sluts’ campaign that was waged against many women who accused her husband, then President Bill Clinton of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and rape.

 

On Sunday night, Kathleen Willey, one of the many women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct, was interviewed by Aaron Klein of WND.com for his WABC Radio Show. (audio below) Wiley, a former Democrat fundraiser founded ‘Virginians for Clinton’, which helped Bill Clinton win the presidency in 1992, along with her now deceased husband.

 

According to Willey, the friendship that she and her husband had with the Clintons turned bad after she had an altercation with Clinton. After she and her husband faced financial hardship, she states that she approached Bill Clinton in the Oval Office to ask him for a paying job in place of the unpaid volunteerism that she devoted to the Clintons for years.

 

That’s when, Willey said, things took a turn and Bill Clinton sexually harassed her, giving her a tight embrace and a kiss on the mouth. That moment made Willey a target, just like other accusers became. From Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern with whom Bill Clinton admittedly had an affair while he was president, to Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, and others, Willey was caught in the crosshairs of the Clintons’ political aspirations. To Willey, that made her a target and a victim of the infamous Clinton ‘Nuts and Sluts’ campaign, a tactic meant to discredit and place blame on the victims of Clinton’s sexual escapades and abuse of power.

Klein asked Willey if it has frustrated her that the ‘actual Democrat machine, not just Hillary, but top Democrats across the country, have covered up these crimes, including against her?” Her answer was definitive and delivered with conviction.

 

“I know. It really drives me crazy. It really does, the way all of this happened, because, Hillary Clinton is the war on women and that’s what needs to be exposed here. That’s it. We don’t need to go back to all the sordid details, all that kind of stuff. And people are saying, “I can’t believe Republicans are going back.

 

” That’s not the point. “

 

“The point is what this woman is capable of doing to other women while she’s running a campaign basically on women’s issues. It just doesn’t make any sense. She singlehandedly orchestrated every one of these investigations of all these women. And, they’re the ones, they’re the people reminding us of how sordid this all is.”

 

“Here they are again. They take up all the oxygen in the room and everybody is depressed because you go back to all the sordid details. They need to just go away. They are forcing themselves on us, that’s the way I feel. Just pack your bags, you’ve had your 15 minutes. Remember Hillary coined that she was the ‘co-President’, so she had that. Just stop forcing us to have to look at this stuff again. We’re sick of it. “

White House on minimum wage

 

 

In addition, businesses can adjust in other ways rather than reducing employment (for example, by accepting lower profit margins).

 

Those bastid greedy businesses.

 

Obama truly is a Miracle Worker.

 

Why didnt we think of that before?

 

Set the minimum wage to be $500 an hour. Become energy independent by making car and truck makers to make cars that get 5,000 miles per gallon. Mandate free housing for everyone. Free shoes, free beer, free pizza.

Obama Calls Homosexuality One of Our “Fundamental Freedoms”…

President Barack Obama has elevated the right to have sex with a member of the same sex to the level of universal “fundamental freedoms” in a new presidential statement criticizing Uganda. But critics say his promotion of homosexuality in a continent that overwhelmingly opposes that behavior amounts to a form of liberal “cultural imperialism.”

 

Obama wrote on Sunday that he opposed a proposed bill in Uganda that would criminalize same-sex “marriages”...

Navy Flexes Muscle, Tows Retired Aircraft Carrier Toward North Korea http://Navy Flexes Muscle, Tows Retired Aircraft Carrier Toward North Korea Read more: http://www.duffelblog.com/2014/02/carrier-north-korea/#ixzz2totmidkL

 

carrier.jpg?zoom=1.5&resize=660%2C400

 

BREMERTON, WA — Seeking a way of keeping Pyongyang in check amidst a tightened budgetary environment, the Navy today began towing a 52-year-old decommissioned aircraft carrier from what some call a “ship’s graveyard” at Naval Base Bremerton, to the politically unstable Korean Peninsula.

 

The deployment of USS Constellation (CV-64), which was put out of service more than a decade ago and will rely on a 230-foot Navy tugboat to make its 5,000 mile journey, is intended to “send a strong message” to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that America and its allies won’t tolerate that country’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, according to the commander of U.S. Third Fleet, Vice Adm. Kenneth Floyd.

 

“It’s been proven time and again that if you want an aggressive nation to stop rattling its saber, all you have to do is park an aircraft carrier in that nation’s back yard,” Floyd said during this morning’s low-key recommissioning ceremony at the base’s inactive ship maintenance facility.

“We have full faith that once Connie makes her way to the Sea of Japan in about six or seven weeks — provided her badly rusted keel won’t be breached in rough seas — then Kim Jong-un will stop pursuing his nuclear ambitions and calmly go back to shooting free throws with Dennis Rodman, or maybe just shooting more members of his own immediate family,” Floyd added.
