Longshoremen Set to Strike

From Maine to Texas ... If your business relies on these clowns to offload containers. You just might be out of luck come 29 Dec 2012.

The threat of a longshoremen's strike this year once again looms over ports from Maine to Texas, after contract talks that had already been extended 90 days broke down once again today.

About 15,000 members of the International Longshoremen’s Association, including 3,500 dockworkers in the Port of New York and New Jersey, could walk of the job as of Dec. 29, when the extension expires.

Eleven States Where Takers Exceed Makers

Otherwise Known Simply as Death Spiral States.
via Say Anything

Ohio Taker ratio: 1.00 The battleground state has a fiscal standoff between takers (people collecting welfare, a government salary or a government pension) and makers (private sector employees).

Hawaii Taker ratio: 1.02 Dark clouds over Waikiki Beach: Hawaii has slightly more takers than makers.

Illinois Taker ratio: 1.03 Too many goodies promised to insiders. Unfunded pensions contribute to the balance of 103 takers to every 100 makers.

Kentucky Taker ratio:1.05 Twilight in Lexington. People drawing from government slightly outnumber people chipping in with private-sector jobs.

South Carolina Taker ratio:1.06 Riptides on Folly Beach.

New York Taker ratio: 1.07 Causes: taxes, unions and, regulations

Maine Taker ratio: 1.07 A beautiful coastline, but lots of takers.

Alabama Taker ratio: 1.10 The Mises Institute, located in Auburn, AL, is outnumbered.

California Taker ratio: 1.39 Now, we are talking serious takers--who all think they are givers.

Mississippi Taker ratio: 1.49 It's a deadly combo of welfare workers and state employees.

New Mexico Taker ratio: 1.53 The worst taker state in the country

Anderson Cooper:Temporary Blindness Caused by Reflecting Light or Something

Police charged Fasher with:

Driving while intoxicated, Indecent exposure, Urinating in public, Disturbing the peace, Failure to stay in marked lanes, Destruction of public property, Assaulting a police officer, Driving an unregistered motor vehicle, Driving an uninsured motor vehicle ...
Wait One ...
Non-payment of child support, Public intoxication, Evading police, Passengers not wearing seat belts, Transporting lab animals without proper permits and Contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

YES THEY"RE ALL FROM MASSACHUSETTS.

“We spotted the green Hyundai Elantra traveling at approximately five miles-per-hour in the passing lane with a huge shower of sparks coming from the rear of the vehicle. As we got closer we noticed that the rear end of the vehicle was dragging on the ground due to the fact that there were no rear tires or axle on the vehicle,” said Lt. Sullivan of the Canton Police. “After the vehicle pulled over, we approached it and found that the driver was not only drinking a can of beer, but that he was not wearing any pants and that he had urinated on himself.”

After not one, but two, brief foot chases, Francis Fasher, 45, of Foxboro, was placed under arrest.

“There were also two female passengers in the back seat,” stated Lt. Sullivan. “One of the females was asleep, partially clad. The other was extremely hysterical. At that time, we believed that she might have been under the influence of PCP, due to the fact that she claimed there were mice biting at her and climbing on her.”

Because of the size of the two women, police were unable to pull the women out of the rear doors of the vehicle. After members of the Canton Rescue Squad cut the roof off the vehicle, and with the help of a crane supplied by Shaugnessy Crane, the women were lifted out of the car. Police estimate the weight of each woman was between 300 and 450 pounds.
It only gets worse after all that.

Something about following the Scraaach marks 4 miles back to a bar where they located the missing rear axel and wheels. Police figure the combined weight of the three passengers caused the rearend of the Hyundai to become disengaged from the vehicle. Yeah ... Thank Heavens for Front Wheel Drive.

The reporter was Karen Jeffrey, 59, a writer for the Cape Cod Times since 1981. In an audit of her work, Times editors have been unable to find 69 people in 34 stories since 1998, when we began archiving stories electronically.

On Tuesday, Jeffrey admitted to fabricating people in some of these articles and giving some others false names. She no longer works for the Cape Cod Times.

CNN LINK Iran seizes U.S. drone over Gulf
A unit from Iran's navy has captured a U.S. drone flying over the Persian Gulf, according to Iranian state media reports Tuesday....
OMG.

Seized With What? A friggin SuperSecret Iranian Tractor Beam? Maybe it was a 30 Thousand Foot Telescoping Robotic Arm. However they did it is freaking amazing. It's remarkably undamaged.

Uh-Oh ...Bagdad Bob has got himself a new gig.
Noteworthy, according to an unnamed military official BAGDAD BOB quoted by state TV, Iran’s cyber warfare unit managed to take over controls of the Sentinel and bring it down. Is it possible? Maybe, otherwise I would not explain why the RQ-170 was not remotely destroyed with a kill-switch reportedly used on such systems to prevent them from going in the wrong hands. Such self-destruction systems are designed to bring down the drone should its pilot lose satellite link from the mobile ground control station.

WRONG



You can see it in what Whitlock wrote and Costas was more than happy to repeat it for him. Who exactly are these people they’re talking about? Who are these people that handguns tempt into escalating arguments? Who are these people who handguns lead into confrontation? Who are they? Who is this ‘us’ he keeps referring to? Anyone know?

Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out this giant nugget of fail from Whitlock regarding whether or not we’d focus on his belief that, had Belcher not owned a gun, none of this happens:

But we won’t. We’ll watch Sunday’s game and comfort ourselves with the false belief we’re incapable of the wickedness that exploded inside Jovan Belcher Saturday morning.

The entire argument put forth by these two really boils down to the fact that because some folks commit crimes and do stupid things with guns, they should outlaw them. They don’t specifically say that, but that’s what they want. They use words like “we’ and “us” because unless they are able to paint every person who possesses a gun with the actions of Jovan Belcher, they know they’re full of it and so does anyone capable of an objective thought.
Tam minces no words with this segment ...

Also from the comments there I was thinking the same thing earlier today
The only way this murder-suicide would have improved by gun control is if Kasandra Perkins had control of the gun. It disgusts me that folks like Costas and the quoted Whitlock would use a horrendous murder-suicide to try and get the populace to embrace something thats a proven loser (both politically and statistically).

Missing Asian Antelope in Rhode Island


Unfortunately for her, she looks like a big brown deer with no antlers. Rhode Island Environmental Management Services say the owner does not have a permit to keep these animals at the remote Rhode Island farm in Hopkington. Arrangements had been made to send the animals to the Black Beauty Ranch in Murchison,Texas farm for safe keeping. One of the animals broke free of her pen and escaped into a heavily wooded area surounding the farm.

State veterinarian Dr. Scott Marshall of the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management says he and other DEM officials were supervising the preparation of the antelope and others Monday at a farm in the Woodville - Alton Road section of Hopkinton.

"They were making preparations to ship the animals to a sanctuary in Texas and she became spooked, when we had to dart her to read her TB test and to get her onto the trailer," said Dr. Marshall. "So, she crashed through a fence and went into the woods, and the woods are very thick in the area and we haven't been able to find her."

WARNING from the RHODE ISLAND DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES:
The DEM issued an advisory at about 2:30 Tuesday warning that the sedative "administered to the animal could cause harm or possibly death to people if flesh from this animal is consumed." Dr. Marshall identified the sedative as Xylazine, which he said is commonly used by veterinarians to sedate large animals.

The DEM also posted warning signs that include photos of the animal at the nearby Black Farm State Management area.


UPDATE: So according to this Field and Stream map we're into Peak Rut in Southern New England. Can one of you Environitwits tell me when we might expect some overly large antlerless whitetails here in the North and Easterly realms?
