First off, my prayers and hopeful wishes to the people in Japan, suffering from that massive earthquake. May the death and destruction be as limited as possible, and their recovery swift and strong.
My daughter and a group of her classmates were scheduled to leave for Japan this morning. Needless to say, she is back in her bed, sleeping after waking up at 4:00 am to board the plane. Her teacher thinks they may leave on Sunday. Lovely Daughter and I think it’s best they just scratch their trip. I’m sure the Japanese would love to have all those American dollars, but right now digging out of the rubble is their main priority.
My big question: How will this affect the world economy, with one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel?
The unions continue to try to shake up the legislators and bully them into allowing the unions to continue their seemingly unfettered power. Death threats against legislators, overwhelming the police force trying to control them, threatening citizen journalists (or anyone with a video camera without the union designation) with physical pain, property destruction – and yet I wonder how much of this bad behavior is being reported on the mainstream news? And how is this lack of coverage going to make the MSM look? I mean, there are so many people on the internet these days, and those videos are out in the public…but then, Katie Couric and her ilk cannot be bothered with those pajama media types.
But those types of people practically shut down ACORN, took a huge bite out of Planned Parenthood, and are giving NPR a migraine. Yeah, go ahead ignore them. Go ahead. They are shaking up the news, and the MSM are merely holding onto the handrails, trying not to get tossed over the side.
