While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others,
"We ask the American government to take a firm position toward this film's producers within the framework of international charters that criminalise acts that stir strife on the basis of race, colour or religion."
The election is in 53 days Pitch in $10 now
The lowering of the United States to AA- marks the second time in the Obama Administration that the US has had its credit rating lowered. Mr. Obama is the only President in history to have the United States' credit rating lowered. Now it has happened again.
And this quote from Zero Hedge:
The FED's QE3 will stoke the stock market and commodity prices, but in our opinion will hurt the US economy and, by extension, credit quality. Issuing additional currency and depressing interest rates via the purchasing of MBS does little to raise the real GDP of the US, but does reduce the value of the dollar (because of the increase in money supply), and in turn increase the cost of commodities (see the recent rise in the prices of energy, gold, and other commodities). The increased cost of commodities will pressure profitability of businesses, and increase the costs of consumers thereby reducing consumer purchasing power. Hence, in our opinion QE3 will be detrimental to credit quality for the US.Please bookmark!
Some market observers contend that a country issuing debt in its own currency can never default since it can simply print additional currency. However, per Reinhart & Rogoff's " This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly " , p.111, 70 out of 320 defaults since 1800 have been on domestic (i.e., local currency) public debt. Note, US funding costs are likely to slowly rise as the global economy recovers or the FED scales back its Treas. purchases (75% recently).
From 2006 to present, the US's debt to GDP rose from 66% to 104% and will probably rise to 110% a year from today under current circumstances; the annual budget deficit is 8%. In comparison, Spain has a debt to GDP of 68.5% and an annual budget deficit of 8.5%. We are therefore downgrading the US country rating from "AA" to "AA-".

hmm, hmm, hmm!
It is time we all stop dis-respecting our
esteemed President, and long past time since
we should respect him with more honors. It
has been several years now since he wrote those
two thrilling auto-biographies about his great
self, and really too long since he won the Nobel
Peace Prize for single-handedly saving the world.
It is time he finally gets some more well-deserved awards; we owe this
great specimen of humanity our adoration and veneration anyway,
just for gracing us with his humble presence.
Award Number One: The Medal of Honor; for his devotion to duty,
for bravery to his fellow men; for excellence in patriotism far above
his presidential predecessors; for securing life, liberty and happiness
for our entire country; had he been at San Juan Hill, he would have
stormed the mountain fortress all by his lonesome, throwing caution
and safety to the wind, he would have out-done Teddy R. Battle of
the Bulge, he would have won that all by hisself. BHO-- rah, rah, rah.
Hold the ceremony in the Oval Office, where surrounded by mirrors,
the imposter can hang the Medal around his own scrawny neck, that
is, if he can get Reggie off his neck.
Award Number Two: An Oscar; for best performance in politics;
best acting ability for someone so totally ignorant of real world events,
at home and abroad; and best stuffed shirt/empty suit/ignorant chair
performance by an illegal immigrant with no green card.
Award Number Three: An ESPY; please, please, give the boy/child
an ESPY for best performance in golf, basketball and an extra one
for being able to watch ESPN around the clock while the middle
East goes up in flames, while the American economy goes down in
flames, and for being second only to Merv Griffin in keeping his
raging homosexuality out of the public eye.
Award Number Four: The Total Ignorance Gold Cup; this one is
for the ages, since it will be at least a thousand years before American
voters will ever be able to find anyone to act as president who is as
empty headed, wrongly directed, dumb as a high school jock, completely
stupid on domestic economice and foreign affairs, totally inept at
running anything, and has never yet worked a day in his sorry,
Award Number Five: The No - You're NOT as Smart as A Fifth
Grader. Best performance by the dumbest guy in the room, dumbest
guy on the block, the man with not one idea or clue, and whose
speaking abilities make Bawney Frwank look smooth.
Bar-wreck Hussein Obama -- hmm, hmm, hmm!!
Rhonda Weldon, the school’s director of communications, said the university received a call about 8:35 a.m. from a man claiming to be affiliated with Al Qaeda. The man said he'd placed bombs all over the campus that would detonate in 90 minutes.
All buildings were evacuated at 9:50 a.m. as a precaution, Wheldon said.
Long simmering tensions between the Chinese and Japanese governments flared up earlier today when six surveillance ships were sent by China on a mission of "law enforcement over its maritime rights," which just happened to involve violating Japan's territorial waters, and attempting to lay claim to the Senkaku Islands.
The islands, which have been under dispute by the rival governments since World War 2, are quite possibly near huge maritime gas and oil fields, and in China's continuous drive for more resources and energy power, it does not surprise me they are attempting to assert their claim, albeit weak and unfounded, at this time.
This situation also materialized with the Japanese government buying the islands two days ago from private owners to prevent nationalists from developing on them to intentionally taunt the Chinese. Apparently, China saw the move as encroaching on their sovereignty and deployed several vessels to the area.
Japan was understandably agitated by the encroachment of their territorial waters and deployed their coast guard to meet the Chinese vessels, demanding their departure, which they obliged by the afternoon and the incident was diffused without the use of force.
However, this demonstrates the Chinese government is feeling confident enough to start asserting their claims and authority over disputed islands with their neighbors, most of which are weak militarily and rely heavily on the United States for protection, and that we could see the beginning of Sino imperialism in South West Asia.
Stay tuned to this interesting development.
State Senator Jim Seward (R-NY 51) has defeated his first serious primary challenger since 1986 with 80% of Republicans backing his bid for a 14th term in the irregular Thursday vote, which nearly 10,000 turned out to participate in despite little media coverage, a respectable number by any margin in this mostly rural district.
Senator Seward dispatched of his opposition, tea party member and political newcomer James Blake, with relative ease in my home county of Schoharie with 85% of the local GOP backing his bid, and overall in his nine county large district with 80%, or 7,600 votes received out of 9,500 ballots cast. Not to shabby.
The long-serving incumbent will go on to face Democrat Howard Leib in the general election this November, which he is expected to carry without difficulty in the predominantly Republican district.

“I’m not saying this is an absolute but in a way, if you’re not having kids – who gives a damn? Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want? If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”
This effect accounts for the fact that, to our best knowledge, in every human society in history, incest is avoided and usually a social tabooChildren who were raised together develop a strong sexual disinterest for each other. This even works if they are not biologically related. The effect has been studied in Israeli kibbutzim, where children are raised in cohorts of the same age, and there are hardly any marriages among members later.
Earlier this year, massive thunderstorms hit over 2 million people in Maryland, West Virginia, Indiana, Ohio and New Jersey, leaving them in complete darkness and having to deal with record breaking heat.
People are angry and for good reason. No longer are they impressed by presidents and officials coming and expressing their simpathy. They would rather have good, sustainable power lines. Before it’s too late.
And the rest of us, who haven’t been affected by natural disasters yet, do we really collectively understand what it means to be powerless? Well, basically it’s an entire chain of survival issues.
Running Water. In many areas, pumping stations deliver pressurized water directly to homes and businesses. If the pumping station stops pumping, the water stops flowing. It’s as simple as that. One concern is, in some cases water supply delivery systems can become contaminated if pressure is lost in a power outage. When this occurs, often a boil water advisory will be issued.
Because of the importance of water in an emergency scenario, in almost every case when a long term power outage occurs or is expected, it is vital to store as much water as quickly as possible. After the tap stops flowing, acquiring water becomes much more complex.
For complete survival preparedness, including power outages, water purification methods and efficient food storage, we recommend The Familly Survival Course, available now:

Heating/Cooling. Although most homes will be well insulated against the cold, they often become somewhat of a hot box in warmer climates without electricity to move air via a cooling system or simple fans. That’s why electricity is essential.
Refrigeration. It goes without saying, refrigeration will not function without electricity. Although this is already likely part of any survival plans in any residential home, there are effects of commercial refrigeration that may need to be addressed. All refrigeration of items in grocery stores will fail, and due to the limited insulation will spoil very quickly. Staples such as milk and eggs will not be able to be purchased almost immediately. Medications that require refrigeration will also spoil.
Traffic Flow. Power outages obviously stop traffic lights from functioning. Consider how a single accident at an intersection can affect traffic in several directions for considerable distances. As the auto accidents start to multiply, imagine how it will affect traffic congestion to a larger degree. Add to it considerable frustration by the slow moving traffic and more aggressive individuals may take more risky moves.
Communication. Cell phones must be charged, and will eventually run out of battery power without a way to recharge them (which is easily done).
General Healthcare. Many hospitals, emergency care facilities and larger medical centers have a backup power source; however the average local general practitioner, specialist or dentist does not. Although in a short term emergency where there is no electricity, urgent care will be able to be provided, standard care will not be as accessible. Without easy access to preventive health care, contagious diseases will be more likely to go undiagnosed and spread.
And these are just o few of the consequences followed by power outages.Thing is, unless we all realize that natural disasters will hit, sometimes without warning, and we start taking the proper measures to reduce the damage, America will soon be powerless.
As scary as this may sound, it’s highly probable. We’re all obviously worried about our future. Fortunately, there are still concerned people willing to share their knowledge and help us protect our families against any disasters.

A wave of militant anti-American protests have broken out across the islamic world, as U.S. embassies have been targeted, resulting in the death of one of our Ambassador's and his security detail, and the raising of al-Qaida's flag over another. Incidents you would expect to see in Iran or Pakistan, but not this time...
Think Egypt and Libya yesterday, and Tunisia today.
Countries we helped liberate in last year's brutal and deadly arab spring across Northern Africa are repaying our consulates for our support by holding our government accountable for the actions of one idiotic preacher in Florida by killing our diplomats, raiding our offices, burning our flags and causing mayhem.
Granted, security forces and local police in Libya, and Tunisia were fighting back against the militants, but no such protection would be granted to our diplomats in Egypt, and the low life bastards in all three nations who benefited from our support last year have taken yet another excuse to scream death to the people who aided them against our better judgement.
This is just freaking bullshit.
Why exactly did we overthrow Hosni Mubarak and ben-Ali again? To help spread "democracy" and "rights" or some other western concept 90% of citizens in these countries can't tolerate? Because if that was our goal instead of maintaining stability and allies, our government deserves a giant F on that one.
Because not only is there no democracy or rights in those countries, due to the rise of islamists, we have lost two pivotal allies in the War on Terror and stalwarts of stability in a region infected with chaos. And lets not even discuss Libya, because this entire situation could have been avoided by putting boots on the ground ten months ago.
And as long as our current leadership continues to waffle on this issue and make excuses for the actions of these islamist dickheads, we should expect to see U.S. Embassies targeted across the arab world, and maybe, just maybe after the second or third Ambassador is murdered we will consider a new strategy... as long as it doesn't peril the President's reelection hopes, that is.

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others

One of the individuals at the forefront of this new reality is Angus Reed, who is a Director of Australia's leading integrated property and investment management group, Prudentia Investments.
Mr. Reed has worked on bringing solar energy to Australia, which he believes is a part of the energy solution for the planet. He has also taken the lead on making sure that new construction projects are sustainable and take advantage of new energy technology and efficiency.
Perhaps his most impressive work has been with Melbourne's new Wyndham Harbor project. This massive project will not only offer competitively priced apartments, but also a 1,400 ship marina, and a new shopping area. This will translate into housing, jobs, and tax revenue for Melbourne and its environs.
Angus Reed has taken the lead in projects like this one, energy efficiency, and in Dubai. His work can serve as a model for your own company or line of work.
