Unemployment, Blame it on Hurricane Sandy

I call Bull$hit !! There is no way all these job losses are due to Hurricane Sandy !!

Unemployment, Blame it on Hurricane Sandy

They’re blaming unemployment on me !!

You may recall my mentioning that when not here, I do weather. I work for a company based out of Maryland and am an ‘Advisor’ on the Severe and ‘Tropical’ board. I along with my colleagues tracked and covered Hurricane Sandy before many in the US even knew she existed. My first broadcast on Sandy was 5:00 AM EDT 10/24/2012 as a Tropical storm and my last was 12:00 PM EDT 10/30/12 as a post tropical storm. I / we know the areas impacted by Sandy. I digress … was the recent layoff / termination of over 18,500+ folks by Hostess due to Hurricane Sandy ?

Hostess Brands is Closed – The wind down means the closure of 33 bakeries, 565 distribution centers, approximately 5,500 delivery routes, 570 bakery outlet stores and the loss of 18,500 jobs.

Hell no it wasn’t !! So shut the FK up blaming the shitty economy on a storm from over a month ago.

Speaking of which Continue reading

Conflict in Middle East heats up – #Israel #Gaza #Hamas

You knew it was coming. Well, some of us did.

As if a Hollywood movie script ..

US presidential elections were held last week with Obama being re-elected. Shortly after yet another battle breaks out in the middle-east. The president assures the chosen people that an attack on them is an attack on the United States of America. The battle ensues with all out war on the horizon. Soon after one of the countries who oppose the chosen and the U.S. is accused of supplying weapons of mass destruction to their enemy. Time goes quickly by with no end in sight and World War Three begins.

Now, if they follow the script laid out many years ago, this, or something like this is what is to come for those of us in the world with a brain. If nothing else, these assholes are predictable. The only thing not quite sure of yet is how the US is drawn into this War. Surely they won’t use the ‘Weapon of Mass Destruction’ obtained by our enemy line .. again; which they’ve been touting in past days, months, years. They tried to draw the US into this conflict last week with the ‘Iran shoots at US drone‘ crap. It didn’t work.

Combat cam: IDF blasts Gaza, shows precision PR footage

The Israeli military released footage showing what it said was its air force targeting Hamas Fajr missile infrastructure in the Gaza Strip in an airstrike. A day earlier Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak told reporters that most of Hamas’ Fajr missiles were destroyed in the first hour of the Israeli army’s assault on the Gaza Strip.

So you want to #Secede from the United States of America

Many of you in these United States of America want the state you live in to secede and form your own government. I have but a couple things to say about this, the first being, The grass isn’t always greener on the other side; and , Be careful what you wish for.

The biggest thing on my mind is, When did it become okay for a few [that being you and others] making the decision for many [myself and others]. After all, isn’t that exactly what you are trying to secede from ? Hmm, didn’t think this through very well did you.


He is my suggestion for those of you who wish to secede from the union. All of you pack your stuff and move to the least densely populated state in the union, that being Alaska. You’ll have to shed some blood as I don’t think those that currently call Alaska home will go willingly. After the civil war I’m sure you will enjoy your cold meager existence especially once all form of commerce is halted, including sealing the boarders to ensure your protection.

Now, you may think you will have it made. Rest assured others like myself will be more than happy to see that you have basic necessities. However, all buildings, power generating facilities, water purification, and anything currently in place previously funded by the state of Alaska or the federal government will either be shut down or entirely removed, including current personal who maintain and operate said facilities.


Others and myself will be more than happy to help you pack, move, and after settling you in your igloo, we’ll proceed to destroy all roads leading into and out of Alaska. We’ll also be shutting down the pipelines, but that is something we’ll just have to live with. We’ll also have the coast guard and US navy patrolling the waters to make sure you are not bothered by any ocean going vessel that you may be able to use to bring in supplies. Oh, by the way, airports are gone too.

Remember, once you make the decision to secede from the union, you will no longer have a say in how you are treated. You will no longer be a citizen of the United States and you will no longer be allowed to vote. You will be treated like many third world countries with the exception of receiving USAid or foreign aid. I could go on and on about the stuff you will no longer have or be allowed to do, but I’m confident you have spent may hours thinking this through.

P.S. – We will also keep other nation states like Russia, Canada and China from interfering with your new beginning. Doing so will help maintain the security of the lower 48 states. We’re sure you understand the reason for this. You are on your own. Enjoy your ‘new’ life!

Signed, Happy in Georgia USA
