  • Urgent: Checking and savings account information stolen from major banks

    The quickest way to destroy a financial system, in this case our electronic system, is to destroy any trust or faith that the depositors and users have in the system. This electronic warfare on our financial institutions could have been perpetrated by foreign hackers, possibly backed by a doreign government, or, it could have come from within our own government. Trust, once lost, is seldom regained.

  • 'Cops' Crew Member Killed by Officers While Show Films Armed Robbery (Omaha)

    But at least those officers were able to safely go home to their families, and that’s all that matters. As for the taxpayers, pay up, or these very same cops will show up at your doorstep to collect their pay (taxes), and throw you out of your home if you don’t pay up, assuming they don’t just shoot you first, because they were afraid of a citizen, who threatened their financial well being. It’s pretty bad when the mafia is easier to deal with than the cops.

  • U.S. liquid fuels production growth more than offsets unplanned supply disruptions

    Depends on the engine design, and whether it was optimized for the fuel being fed to it, or just a comprimise. E85, and E10 are prime examples of wasting fuel in an engine that was not designed to burn them specifically.

    The railroads already utilize LNG and CNG fueled locomotives, and they use
    them in the most demanding operations: yard switching, and hump & trim sets. And the fuel savings from those operations, along with reduced maintanence costs, have more than made up for the initial stuctural costs.

    Because pandering for members trumps ideology in the religious world apparentely. Religion has nothing to do with it. The vatican is a political-business organization, who happen to practice religion on the side to attract followers. When the vatican starts actively recruiting for, and financing the next rounds of the crusades against muslim jihad, then they’ll have my attention. Until then, they just seem more interested in cashing in on the guilt and turn the other cheek markets. Honestly, it’s kind of hard to “love thy neighbor” when your neighbor want’s to cut off your head, and rape and enslave your wife and children, not to mention sexually molesting your livestock.

    How viable is that extraction scheme at say, less than $50 a barrel? Even then, if the oil industry can't get the price below $2.00 a gallon for either gasoline, fuel oil or diesel, or LPG, then I'll throw my money into the consumer side, and promote efficiency gains and the use of natural gas.

    I work for the railroad servicing and repairing locomotives. At the rail yard that I work at, we burn through 3 million gallons of distillate, a month.
    The railroad is very seriously looking into running LNG in their locomotives, with its low cost, and with the cryogenic tankcars and onboard fuel tanks that I have seen lately, along with the greatly reduced engine maintenance from burning natural gas, not to mention meeting tier 4 emissions without any post-exhaust treatment, I think that the days of the diesel locomotive are numbered.

    Maybe I didn’t word it right. I have no problem with trading and doing business with the Middle Eastern countries. The problem I see is that obama and his regime have alterior motives when it comes to dealing with the ME. The perception is that he has sided with the most radical and disruptive elements in the ME, and may use any means, including punitive financial sanctions to further his goals. What I am saying is that maybe the cooler heads among the governments in the ME should form more local alliances with their neighbors, and plan for dealings that don’t involve the US, at least for the time being. Just like the ME, the US has its own radical elements to deal with, including the ones currently residing in the white house.

    I understand that part, but it is the political meddling that has caused more problems than it has solved. As far as business goes, wait until the US government under obama starts using sanctions to smack down anyone who refuses to side with their jihadi buddies in the muslim brotherhood.Even obama himself said he would side with the muslims if opinion turned against them, and so far, through his actions and policies, he is siding with the most radical elements of islam, including the MB, IS, and hamas. Of course the ME has plenty of other customers in the rest of the world, and it would probably be easier to deal with them, instead of a radicalized US regime.

    Hey, any free trade capitalist will tell you that shareholder value trumps national patriotism every time. Get the gettin’ while the gettin’s good, and then dump the whole overvaluated mess on some other poor chump; that's how it works. There's plenty of people on both sides of the aisle who would agree with that statement, and will use any influence that they can buy to make it happen.

    In reality, the sun is setting on the US economy. As more and more assets leave our shores, we have less and less influence financially in the world. Business leaders see this, recognize it, and will do what they do to stay afloat in a world economy, because even the lowly wharf rat knows when to

Or, when does mexico get its senators and congessman installed in DC? Seeing as how a third of mexico’s population (the worst and most lawless third BTW) are currently squatting here in the US, and sucking up government welfare like a sponge, we might as well just absorb their entire country.

    Of course with a socialist-oligarchy like mexico, obama and the dems would love nothing more to assimilate the mexican rule of law, and destroy ours in the process.

    Judging by recent events in the ME, I think Israel, along with Jordan, Egypt, the UAE, and the Saudis, could pretty much care less what the US or obama
    say or want. The US, no thanks to obama and his douchebag puppet kerry, have pretty much destroyed any credibility or influence we may have had in the region. They have more urgent problems to deal with, including some problems caused or exasperated by the US itself.

    The administrative branch of the government strikes again. These unelected administrative “judges” and “referees” use the local sheriff's department as a tool to grab as much property as they can. The local sheriff's department, getting a piece of that action, is more than happy to oblige.

    Should have built that pipeline. At the railroad that I work for, carloadings are through the roof, we have every locomotive we can get our hands on pulling freight, and the locomotive manufacturers (GE and Electromotive) can't build road locomotives fast enough, along with the car and tankcar builders. Covered hoppers are an especially hot commodity right now. Most of the ones I see are coming out of Canada, for their grain shipments, headed towards Portland and Vancouver, WA. for export shipments. Add to that the new initiative that the UP has launched. They're going after the line haul truckers with their new intermodal express service. Midwest to the west coast, in the same time, for a quarter of the price.

    That's why I went to work for the railroad. Working for a company that has managed to stay alive for the last 150 years, and still keeps turning a profit, and paying a dividend, by sticking to “old school” business principles, is pretty hard to beat.

    No, the oxygen atoms bind with the iron on discharge, and move back to the nickel hydroxide on charging. In a nickel iron battery, or nickel cadmium, or a NiMH cell, the oxygen atom moving between electrodes is how the charge is chemically stored and used. That is why all three cell types have the same operating voltage of 1.2 volts. Of course I’m taking this fuzzy info from memory of redox reactions, and from vague recollection of half cell potentials of various elements.

    So they figured out how to overcharge a nickel-iron battery. That was a problem with those old batteries, they were pretty tolerant to overcharge, but they gassed out really bad, and you would have to replace the water lost. A dry cell at 1.56 volts is able to overcharge a nickel-iron cell at 1.2 volts, which happens to be close to the voltage required to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.

    To prove otherwise, you will have to kick all of the feds and BP out of Texas, they're useless at this point; use state and local resources to lock down the border; tell the feds that they forfeit any tax revenue coming out of Texas, and will not see a single nickel until they get their shit together, because they flat out REFUSE to do the job taxpayers pay them to do; and don't allow any shit-weasel fed politician or agent anywhere near your state, and arrest and deport any all illegals, ALONG with their employers and enablers (US citizen or not, if they love mexico, send them there), then I may have a change of heart regarding Texas politics. Otherwise Texas will be just another blue state like california, where the large cities full of mexicans rule the roost. Straight out of the la raza playbook.

    With the rates that defense contractors bill DOD for stuff, that $4.3 billion ads up to what; a couple of shipping containers of toilet seats, milspec hammers, and some spiffy made-in-china berets?

    More than likely, all of the stuff being offered is obsolete, broken, worn out, and would have likely been dispositioned as scrap. There may have been a few gems in that pile, but it’s still a pile.

    So I guess strongarm robbery, assault, under the influence of narcotics, and assault with intent to do great bodily harm on a police officer are beside the
    point? The moment this women’s “gentle giant” decided to bum rush an armed cop, all bets were off. This women could care less that here son was killed, she is looking for a payday, and a lot of race baiters are using her solely for publicity.

    First Sweden, now Norway. So, tell me again how it was such a good idea to let the barbarians through the gates. As I see it, Europe has two choices: either expel the muslim invaders from their homes and country, or suffer the same fate as the countries of the middle east and north Africa.

    Ignoring the problem will not make it go away. Neither will trying to make nice with the savages with the hope of them killing or enslaving you last.

    Europe has a serious problem, one the makes the threat of NAZIs and soviet communists pale in comparison. And it is far worse because the Europeans opened the doors to their countries, and let them just walk... right... in...
