Ebola Chan Fighters – Time’s Person of the Year 2014

Time Magazine has named Ebola fighters, or workers, as their Person of the Year for 2014. The doctors, nurses and other health care workers who struggled in West Africa have been honored. They even beat folks like Vladimir Putin for the cover of Time Magazine. But what would Ebola-Chan, the Goddess of Pestilence and Death say about this? True, she is only a cute, animated character, but does not her opinion count, too? In New York State, there was recently a court case to grant chimps the full legal status as humans. Why not the same for anime?

Mika Brzezinski Loses It on Furry Convention Story (Video)

Poor Mika Brzezinski loses it when she discovered what a Furry Convention was while reading the news story about the chemical gas leak at the Hyatt Hotel in Chicago over the weekend. The co-host of MSNBC′s Morning Joe lost her composure and ran off the set while Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist had to cover for Mika. She started off reading the headline of the story, then asked her companion if she was pronouncing the word corectly. Joe then asked, “What is a furry?″ Apparently, whatever the show′s producer told them over the earpieces caused Mika to runaway. Did the producer answer with something along the lines of a sexual deviancy?

Walgreens Recalls Swastika Gift Wrap Paper for Hanukkah (Open Thread)

Imagine the shock felt by Walgreen shopper, Cheryl Shapiro of Northridge, California when she came across swastika gift wrap in the Hanukkah wrapping paper section. After complaining to local media, Walgreen immediately decided to recall the product. The retail chain′s spokeman, Phil Caruso, said the company had no idea that there were swastikas in the gift wrapping paper′s pattern. The pattern itself looks very ′art deco′ in a kind of Albert Speer sort of way. I suppose there could be some reasonable excuse by whom ever purchased the product. Perhaps it was part of a package buy of many wrapping papers and received little attention. But still, one has to wonder just how this happened?

America Unearthed – Custer’s Blood Treasure

Did Lt. Colonel Armstrong Custer leave behind a ′blood treasure′ at the Battle of the Little Bighorn? Did a Cheyenne chief named Two Moon, sometimes called Two Moons, hide it? Was there a treasure map in the memorial for Two Moon built by his friend, W. P. Moncure? These questions and others were explored by Scott Wolter in last night′s episode of America Unearthed on the History Channel H2. That the 7th Cavalry probably went on its fateful mission taking along its payroll does seem plausible. So what happened to the estimated $25,000 in gold in silver coins? Such a treasure could be worth $500,000 or more depending on the rarity and condition of the coins, not to mention the historic value. A small guidon flag from the 7th Cav recently was auctioned for $1.4 Million dollars. So finding any horde of artifacts from the Battle of the Little Bighorn would be quite valuable.

Hillary Clinton Smart Power – Empathy with Enemies

Seems shocking that just days before the tragic death of American hostage Luke Somers, murdered by Al Qaeda during a rescue raid in Yemen, that Hillary Clinton gave a speech calling on us to have empathy with our enemies. Is this the sort of mentality we want for a president? Hillary says that it is ″smart power″ to understand and sympathize with those who hate and wish to kill us. Is she just stupid? Is this a sign that Hillary buys into the Liberal mindset of moral weakness? Or could it be related to Hillary suffering from an off-shoot of the ′battered-wife-syndrome′. She had been publicly humiliated by her husband, Bill Clinton, philandering. Does Hillary deliberately walk about with blinders on hiding the truth from her?

Brad Meltzer’s Lost History – Geronimo’s Skull

Did the Yale University secret society, Skull and Bones, steal Apache warrior Geronimo′s skull and bones? Was Prescott Bush behind the grave robbery? These questions were explored in last night′s episode of Brad Meltzer′s Lost History, aired on the History Channel H2. They also investigated the story of missing Cadillac once owned by Al Capone which was used to drive FDR to Congress on December 8, 1941. As always, we are also treated to one story with a happy ending, in this case the .38 caliber pistol used by Teddy Roosevelt in Cuba during the Spanish-American War. The pistol had been stolen twice but is back at TR′s museum.

Orion Launch by NASA Successful on First Test Flight (Video)

After being scrubbed yesterday, NASA succeeded in its Orion launch this morning from Cape Canaveral in Florida, sending America′s new spacecraft on its first test flight. The Orion space capsule was perched on top of a United Launch Alliance Delta IV heavy rocket, which will send the vehicle to an altitude of some 3,200 miles. The mission will only last 4.5 hours as Orion completes two orbits of the Earth before splashing down in the Pacific Ocean. The test flight is unmanned and will be the furthest a ′manned′ spacecraft shall travel since the heady days of the Apollo program. Orion will not begin carrying astronauts until 2020 at the earliest. The space ship is designed for long-ranged, distanced missions to both the Moon and Mars.

National Debt Tops $18 Trillion

This week saw the National Debt clock tick past the $18 Trillion dollar mark. In less than six years, Barack Obama has added some 70% to the debt, which, as we all should know, is just the ′on-budget′ debt. Beyond the federal budget we have that mystery world of ′Commitments and Contingencies′, which includes such long term obligations such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. The actual debt to the American people is somewhere between $60 Trillion to over $200 Trillion dollars, depending on who you ask. Thanks to the ultra-low interest rates set by the Federal Reserve Bank, the National Debt has not been a real ′pocket-book′ issue. But one of these days, the interest rates will increase back to a normal level, from 0.5% to 4.5%. When that happens, look out! The cost of servicing the National Debt will demand tax increases.
