Mass Shooting at Ft. Hood Military Base; 12 dead, 31 wounded

Posted on Nov 05, 2009 in Featured Articles

Hayden’s Note: Remember, remember…. the 5th of November.  Is it any coincidence that this is Guy Fawkes Day?  A celebrated holiday in which Guy Fawkes rises against the ‘system’ by attempting to blow up a government building? Also, it has become a hallmark for Tea Parties, Money Bombs, Libertarians, etc.  Let’s see how this will be spun, shall we?
Crazy anti-government shooter?  Returning Iraqi vet that goes postal?

DEVELOPING: A mass shooting at Ft. Hood military base in Texas has left at least 7 dead and 12 wounded.

Homebuyers Credit, Jobless Benefits To Be Extended

Posted on Nov 05, 2009 in Economic News

The White House says President Obama on Friday will sign a bill that expands a popular homebuyers tax credit and extends unemployment benefits. Congress on Thursday completed work on the $24 billion economic package that seeks to help out the millions who have lost jobs and have been unable to rejoin the workforce. Hayden's Note:  Is it just me, or does anyone else hear that giant sucking sound?  Oh wait, that's our future swirling down the drain.  Honestly, I don't have a HUGE problem with the homebuyer's credit.  And no, I have not taken part in it nor plan to, but for a wrecked economy and destroyed housing market (due in large part by the very ones acting so god-like to save us) this was a spending bill/stimulus that actually motivated some people to either buy a new home or sta

Mystery Flu Cases in Ukraine Double in 2 Days

Posted on Nov 05, 2009 in Global & National News

478,456 Influenza/ARI

24,003 Hospitalized

60 Ventilators

81 Deaths

The above numbers are from the latest update from Ukraine.  The number of infected patients has almost doubled to just under ½ million, compared to the report two days ago (see map).  Hospitalized patients also have spiked higher, to 24K from 15K.  ICU cases are not listed, but 60 on ventilators are.  However, most (37) of those on ventilators are Chernivisti Oblast, but Lviv, which has the most fatalities and cases, has none, suggesting the data is incomplete or there are significant shortages of ventilators.  The number of dead has risen to 81, but media reports describe additional fatalities, include those in the Kiev Oblast.

The explosion of cases again raises concerns that the number of fatalities is significantly higher than the 81 listed.  Media reports have described an equal number of pneumonia fatalities which were not considered flu related.  The basis of these exclusions remains unclear.  Similarly, anecdotal reports suggest the number of fatalities is markedly higher than the 81 in the table.

The rapid rise in reported infections, hospitalizations, and deaths in the past few days raise concerns that the virus is transmitting very efficiently. ...

First-time jobless claims dropped more than expected last week to 512,000, the lowest level since early January. And, in a separate report, the government said U.S. productivity advanced at the fastest pace in six years in the third quarter as labor costs fall sharply.

Store Sales Rise, Though Shoppers Cautious

Consumers, enticed by cooler weather, early holiday discounts and an improving economy, spent a little more in October, handing the retail industry its second consecutive sales gain after more than a year of declines. Merchants' reports showed that shoppers were not splurging, but the tone of the announcements pointed to a sales momentum.» E-Mail This     » Add to Del.icio.us Click here to read entire article If you are the author or agent of this article and would like your RSS feed removed from www.TruthisTreason.net, please email 'contact@truthistreason.net' and your RSS Feed will be deleted.

U.S. Woes Cut Cash Flow From Mexican Migrants

Posted on Nov 04, 2009 in Economic News

Mexico's economy relies heavily on money flowing back to the country from workers in the U.S. The recession has hit these remittances hard. But as the U.S. recession fades, more Mexican men are traveling north to look for work as Mexico's severe downturn lingers. Hayden's note:  Soo, what they're really trying to say is that it's America's fault; it's our failing economy that is hurting Mexico and causing more illegal immigrants to flood our country?  Another way to look at it is that it equals more of the legal immigrants sending money BACK to Mexico and leaving OUR economy.  I love how they use the term 'remittance' about a dozen times in the full article.  Hmmmm.

V Strikes Similar Chord to Obama Mania

Posted on Nov 04, 2009 in Movies, TV, & Video Games

By Glenn Garvin - McClatchy/Tribune News

November 3, 2009

Imagine this. At a time of political turmoil, a charismatic, telegenic new leader arrives virtually out of nowhere. He offers a message of hope and reconciliation based on compromise and promises to marshal technology for a better future that will include universal health care.

The news media swoons in admiration — one simpering anchorman even shouts at a reporter who asks a tough question: “Why don’t you show some respect?!” The public is likewise smitten, except for a few nut cases who circulate batty rumors on the Internet about the leader’s origins and intentions. The leader, undismayed, offers assurances that are soothing, if also just a tiny bit condescending: “Embracing change is never easy.”

So, does that sound like anyone you know? Oh, wait — did I mention the leader is secretly a totalitarian space lizard who’s come here to eat us?

Welcome to ABC’s “V,” the most fascinating and bound to be the most controversial new show of the fall television season. Nominally a rousing sci-fi space opera about alien invaders bent on the conquest (and digestion) of all humanity, it’s also a barbed commentary on Obamamania that will infuriate the president’s supporters and delight his detractors....

11th Body Found in Cleveland Home; Serial Rapist / Killer

Posted on Nov 04, 2009 in Global & National News

Source: CNN Partial remains of an 11th body have been found at the Cleveland, Ohio, home of a convicted rapist, police said Wednesday. Earlier Wednesday, a judge denied bond to Anthony Sowell, 50, who faces five counts of aggravated murder, rape, felonious assault and kidnapping. Municipal Judge Ronald Adrine said the latest allegations against the convicted rapist are "gruesome" and the "most serious" he has heard in his years on the bench. Dr. Frank Miller, Cuyahoga County coroner, was holding a news conference Wednesday afternoon to reveal the preliminary causes of death for the four bodies discovered Tuesday. Five of the previously discovered victims were strangled, authorities said, while the sixth body was too decomposed to determine the cause of death. All six were Afri

Pelosi Dismisses Democratic Losses in Virginia and New Jersey

Pelosi dismisses Dem losses in Virginia and New Jersey

Source : Politico

Hayden’s Note: I’m sorry, but can Nancy Pelosi truly be this ignorant and in denial?  Read on to understand…

Most House Democrats tried to put a good face on Tuesday’s election results, saying they picked up two more votes for a sweeping health care bill that could be on the floor as early as Friday.

But it can’t make it any easier for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as she works to corral the last holdouts she needs to pass legislation overhauling the nation’s health care system.

Of course, the speaker, who told POLITICO recently she’s “not big on showing weakness,” brushed aside questions about how the Democratic gubernatorial losses in Virginia and New Jersey would impact her final tally and instead trumpeted the two special election House wins. 

“From our perspective, we won last night,” the California Democrat told reporters during a Wednesday photo op. “We had one race that we were engaged in, it was in northern New York, it was a race where a Republican has held the seat since the Civil War....

6-Year-Old Girl with Brain Cancer Hid Love Notes for Her Parents to Find After Her Death

November 4, 2009 at 1:39 am

Hayden’s note: Now, I normally don’t post stories like this, but I couldn’t help but smile when I read this story.  Hopefully you will, too.

 

 

When 6-year-old Elena Desserich was diagnosed with brain cancer, she began hiding hundreds of little love notes around the house for her parents to find after she was gone. Here’s the story:

 

 

Just before her sixth birthday, Elena Desserich (right) was diagnosed with brain cancer and given 135 days to live. She lived 255 days, passing away in 2007. After her death, Elena’s parents, Brooke and Keith, found hundreds of notes from Elena hidden around the house — in between CD cases, between bookshelves, in dresser drawers, in backpacks….

 

“It just felt like a little hug from her, like she was telling us she was looking over us”

Elena left hundreds of notes like these:

Elena’s parents, Brooke and Keith Desserich, have now published these notes in a book called Notes Left Behind to fund a non-profit organization The Cure Starts Now dedicated to fighting pediatric brain cancer....

Warren Buffet Buys Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad; $34 Billion

Freight expectations: Warren Buffett goes `all-in’ with $34B bet on railroads and the economy

By Samantha Bomkamp, AP Transportation Writer

On 4:50 pm EST, Tuesday November 3, 2009 – Source: Yahoo Finance

NEW YORK (AP) — The biggest name in investing is making what he calls an “all-in wager” on the U.S. economy — $34 billion to own a railroad that hauls everything from corn to cars across the country.

The acquisition of Burlington Northern Santa Fe, the nation’s second-largest railroad, would be the biggest ever for Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway investment company.

It’s a natural fit for the Oracle of Omaha, a city with a special place in railroad history. It was the starting point for the westward push of the transcontinental railroad. Today, Omaha is the headquarters of Union Pacific, and Burlington Northern trains rumble through.

In a statement, Buffett, whose investing decisions are carefully scrutinized by the world of finance, voiced confidence in the railroad industry.

“Most important of all, however, it’s an all-in wager on the economic future of the United States. I love these bets,” he said Tuesday....

Fed Cites Improvements, But Keeps Rates Steady

With the recession apparently over, the Federal Reserve held a key interest rate at a record low and again pledged to keep it there for an "extended period" to foster the fragile economic recovery.

Housing Agency Flexes Muscle As Loan Defaults Grow

Recycled Wine Bottle Torch

Posted on Nov 03, 2009 in DIY Projects

I was browsing around the web, looking for some new DIY projects and found Gerardot & Co's blog where they posted an article entitled 'Design for Life: Recycled Wine Bottle Torch'.  Now, I'm all about re-using and recycling parts, but to be honest, I never really could find a really good use for empty wine bottles.  And there are several lying around our house!  The ability (and creative skill!) to turn trash into treasure is something that has fascinated me since early childhood.  Now that we are getting into fall, you might not be able to use it for long but I thought I would share this post with you.  They estimate it to cost about $5 to make and its a great way to recycle your wine bottles, along with adding an artistic flair or creating mood lighting for your yard or p
