If you can’t dazzle us with Brilliance… Baffle us with BS

Sure Sam...

Jonathan Maus, of, describes how “resilient and flexible using bicycles” is.

Hoping for some Change

  The people in charge should be kicked out and required to personally pay this money back...
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers cannot produce about $1 billion of receipts for fuel and other supplies it bought in Iraq using Iraqi money, a government investigation has found.
The total amount of funds unaccounted for has now reached a staggering $7 billion, officials say — and they warn that the Iraqi government is likely to demand at least some of that money back.
The United States has been managing billions of dollars of Iraqi money through the U.N.-created Development Fund for Iraq (DFI)"
 UN is running our policy?

22 Cuban Missile Crisis: “When the Right Words Counted”
On 22 October 1962, President John F. Kennedy delivered a televised speech, arguably “the most serious speech delivered in his lifetime” and the “most frightening presidential address” in U.S. history.’  Soviet missile-launch sites had been discovered under construction in Cuba.  The response resuIted from deliberations among the President and his ad hoc Executive Committee (ExCom).  
Its final draft was improved significantly by an unlikely person: the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), Admiral George W. Anderson, Jr.

Well That Makes me Feel better...

Well This is a Relief  ... After extensive environmental monitoring and analysis, it has been determined that none of the nearly 70,000 members of the DoD-affiliated population (service members, DoD civilian employees and contractors, and family members of service members and civilian employees) who were on or near the mainland of Japan between March 12 and May 11, 2011, are known to have been exposed to radiation at levels associated with adverse medical conditions. 
I wonder why it took so long...

While Mayor Sam Adams Slept :Portland Police Arrest Man Squatting in Residence in Northeast Portland's Woodlawn Neighborhood

This must really irritate Sam... First he wasn't told that the FBI was raiding his constituents "occupied" residencesAnd now this On Sunday, August 6, 2012 at 10:45 p.m., Portland Police officers assigned to North Precinct responded to a residential burglary to a duplex in the 500 block of Northeast Bryant Street. The property is a newly constructed duplex which is staged with furniture and listed for sale. The owner of the property told police that he arrived to find signs of a burglary and believed people may still be inside.

The house immediately west of the duplex is associated with squatters from the Occupy Portland movement, evidenced by the signs in the front yard and large group of Occupiers standing in the front yard.

As officers approached the duplex they observed a large banner (approximately 15') hanging in from the front porch of the duplex which read, "Together we are unevictable."

Officers were able to search one half of the duplex and determine there was no one inside. When attempting to search the other half, officers discovered that the lockbox had been removed from the front door and another lockbox had been removed from the gas meter. Officers looking through the front door could clearly see that furniture had been moved and there was a grocery bag on the kitchen floor.

Officers and the homeowner entered the backyard to find that all the fencing between the duplex and the house to the west (Occupy Portland) had been removed and was piled up in the backyard of the residence being squatted in by Occupy Portland supporters.

The homeowner was able to allow police entry to the duplex after breaching a window. Once inside officers arrested 24-year-old Derek John Charles Zika, who was crouched down by the front door. Zika had personal belongings in an upstairs bedroom and it appeared he had just taken a shower in the upstairs bathroom. The grocery bag in the kitchen contained 2 new sets of door locks that did not belong to the homeowner.

Zika was arrested and charged with Burglary in the First Degree and Criminal Trespass in the First Degree and booked into the Multnomah County Jail.

The Portland Police Bureau is continuing to work on getting cooperation from owners of vacant properties like the one being squatted in by supporters of Occupy Portland on Northeast Bryant Street. Owners of vacant properties are responsible for securing them and for maintaining them until they are sold or rented.

Owners needing assistance from the Portland Police Bureau should contact the Neighborhood Response Team from their police precinct to arrange for a "Trespass Agreement," which can allow for police officers to immediately take enforcement action against trespassers.

First Liar Ain't got a chance

Portland mayoral candidate Charlie Hales was forced to explain another falsehood Thursday after The Oregonian discovered a published letter he signed lifted two passages from a 2009 newspaper article. 

The passages made it appear Hales had taken a recent tour of St. Johns, but the description of scenes and dialogue came from a reporter who took the tour three years ago. It did not include Hales.   You just got to love Liberal Politics in Portland:)
