Being reported by Matt Drudge, on WABC Radio (770 AM NYC) about 7:10 PM, Sun Mar-16
The Malaysian Boeing 777 is presumed to have been highjacked. Probably by the Senior Pilot of the plane, maybe with the assistance of the Junior Pilot.
Senior Pilot is/was a fanatical follower of the leader of the Malaysian Opposition Party, who was convicted of sodomy just before the flight took off. Opposition Leader will spend 15 years in prison. Sr Pilot of Plane was seen wearing a T-shirt with the message "Democracy is Dead." Major media is saying opposition leader is a "moderate" Muslim. But Matt Drudge says he is more of a "radical leaning" Muslim leader.
Belief is that Captain of plane climbed to 45,000 feet, well above the normal service altitude of the plane, with the intent of knocking out or asphyxiating the passengers and other crew with low oxygen. Where they went later is so far unknown.
Claim is also that this was NOT a crime of the moment, but well planned in advance.
Sr. Pilot had a flight simulator in his home and authorities are examining its data to see if it suggests where he took the plane.
And the Russian defense forces jammed the signal and took it down.
Whoes lying numbers are you reading? North East had record snows & cold. NYC had more than double annual average snow!. Average is 24" we had 54".
If its warm in California it must be warm everywhere.
WHAT A DUMMY!
Oh, I see, they are taking the data off BLS Table B-1, which is not normally used for this purpose.
Hey, Skippy! Why ya goin' to Wikipedia? That article is very cagy about what numbers they are using. The trtraditional numbers, usually used for this, are BLS Data Table A-1, Total Employment.
The numbers you are quoting are all wrong. Just wrong.
Why does Obama need Wikipedia to lie for him?
Billionaire investor/activist George Soros has a giant footprint in Ukraine. Similar to his operations in dozens of other nations, he has, over the past couple of decades, poured tens of millions of dollars into Ukrainian non-governmental organizations (NGOs), ostensibly to assist them in transforming their country into a more “open” and “democratic” society.
Many of the participants in Kiev’s “EuroMaidan” demonstrations were members of Soros-funded NGOs and/or were trained by the same NGOs in the many workshops and conferences sponsored by Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation (IRF), and his various Open Society institutes and foundations. The IRF, founded and funded by Soros, boasts that it has given “more than any other donor organization” to “democratic transformation” of Ukraine.
The International Renaissance Foundation’s Annual Report for 2012, the latest available, states that, “IRF provided UAH 63 million in funding to civil society organizations – more than any other donor organization working in this field in Ukraine.” The “UAH” reference used above refers to the Ukraine Hryvnia, Ukraine’s currency, which is worth about 0.11 $US, or eleven cents in U.S. currency. That translates into, roughly, $6.7 million that IRF provided to Ukrainian groups in 2012; not a huge sum, by comparison to many other political and social campaigns, but more than merely “significant.” In the cash-starved Ukraine, Soros’s dollars go a long way toward seducing and co-opting all legitimate political opposition into the Soros-approved “progressive” camp.

George Soros is all about management by “experts,” i.e., central planning, the hallmark of every socialist, fascist, or communist regime. In fact, he is one of the planet’s premier advocates of global central planning and control. Hence, he is a longtime fervent supporter of the United Nations, the IMF/World Bank, the WTO, global population control through the WHO and UNFPA, and virtually every other internationalist endeavor to subvert national sovereignty and advance the building of an omnipotent world government.
Being able to turn it off in the cockpit is such a great convenience to hijackers & terrorists and also son the flight crew can play hankty-panky in the cockpit.
It's not that it CAN'T be raised, it's just that raising the federal minimum wage is a stupid idea.
Yes Democrat employment market is so dismal that desperate people are working any job they can get. Meanwhile, Democrats pass ObamaCare which forces them all to be part time employees.
1. Repeal ObamaCare.
2. Have legislation & policies that improve the employment market.
3. The federal minimum wage is harming the economy, not helping.
Yes, agreed. Statistics show that the Democrat employment market is so chronically dismal that desperate people are working any job they can get. So the Democrats passed ObamaCare to force these people into being part time employees.
The federal minimum wage is not the problem.
1. ObamaCare is one problem - repeal it.
2. Dismal job market is the problem. Pass legislation & policies that create jobs instead of destroying them.
Total employment was higher, unemployment rate lower and participation rate higher during Bush Admin, when the fed minimum wage was $5.25 per hour and almost irrelevant in the market place. The market rate minimum wage was more like $8 or $9 per hour.
Then the Democrats took over Congress in Jan-2007. One of the first things they did was increase the federal minimum wage, in steps, from $5.25 to $$6.25 to $7.25. Total employment declined and became stagnant. Unemployment has been chronically higher and the participation rate has been declining.
Increasing the federal minimum wage during a soft unemployment market is demagoguery and insanity.
Everything about the AZ Freedom to Discriminate Law is vile and bad. Total discredit to the Christian Right.
Well, he snqatched defeate from the jaws of victory in Iraq.
The Democrats 7 Obama are good a losing wars.
He also wants to permanently cripple our military, as did Bill Clinton.
We have been observing this lower species for about nine years and it seems unlikely it will attain "enlightenment" during this life time or the next 100,000 lifetimes.
