50 Shades of Greed

$1.5 Billion over Budget, 12 Years Late for DHS Headquarters
The 250,000 employee Department of Homeland Security has a spending problem. And it isn’t just because Congress and President Obama are at an impasse over a bill that could partially shut down the agency.

Poisoning Our Troops
Federal watchdogs are once again calling attention to a potentially dangerous practice occurring daily at U.S. military bases in Afghanistan.

It involves taking out the trash.

Many U.S. troops are still using open-air burn pits to dispose of their garbage.

If We Don't Get Our Way, We'll Shutdown DHS
 It wasn't supposed to be like this for Republicans. A month into their control of both chambers of Congress, they are confronting the very real possibility of a shutdown of the Homeland Security Department later this month.

The GOP wants 2 Americas. One where people have insurance, equality & a search for truth and another where you piss test the poor for kicks.- LOLGOP

The Rich Will Be Pissed
Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert Shiller has a grim message for investors: Save up, because in the years ahead, assets aren't going to give you the type of returns that you've become accustomed to.

In his third edition of "Irrational Exuberance," which will drop later this month, the Yale professor of economics warns about high prices for stocks and bonds alike.

50 Shades of Grey is so timid compared to the steamy Bible, where whipping is foreplay for death and bondage is what you keep your slaves in. - Mrs. Betty Bowers




Today's edition was late today, as I had a visitor. My friend Yerlin was hit in the head yesterday by a falling branch. She was sitting on her motorcycle talking on the phone when it happened.  Two men at the nearby bus stop, saw what happened and ran over to help her, as blood was gushing from her head. They wanted to call an ambulance but Yerlin refused. Instead, she stopped the bleeding and rode her motorcycle 30 miles to the large clinic in Santa Cruz and then drove back home. The nearby clinic had closed for the day. She got 5 stitches.

She is such a strong woman. I am so glad that she is OK.
