The ultimate fantasy for the Romney family dog (TOON)

The Trees Are All Right - Romney and Santorum don't understand the real value of our nation's public

In most of the American West, the trees are not the right height, which may frighten Mitt Romney, and some of them are so old as to challenge the biblical view of creation that Rick Santorum wants taught in schools.

The tallest trees in the world, the coast redwoods of northern California, grow to 378 feet — more than half the size of Seattle’s Space Needle. The oldest trees in the world, bristlecone pines that cling to hard ground in Nevada’s Great Basin, can live for up to 5,000 years.



We can't have trees older than the bible stories.

Romney, of course, famously said he liked the trees of Michigan because they were “just the right height” — a bizarre and harmless pander. But last month, in a campaign swing that was overlooked by the national press, Romney told a gathering in Nevada that he wasn’t much of a fan of the trees on public land — at least that was the impression he left.

He said, “I don’t know what the purpose is” of the great American public land legacy — a domain that includes 190 million acres of national forests, 52 million acres of national parks, and more than 500 million acres of open range, wildlife refuges and other turf under management of the Interior Department.

Greed runs through their veins and if they can't see one of their cronies making a fortune, there is no value.

It's Obamas fault - he should have seen this coming.

This approaching solar flare is his fault. He should have done something to deflect it.















You know there are teabaggers out there who will blame him.

Meet the .01%

The world's top billionaires 2012

Billionaire List Now Includes 1,226 People
128 new billionaires are added to the Forbes' annual list of billionaires, released today. The world's richest have a combined net worth of $4.6 trillion. See who is on the list
2012: New records, new trends

Forbes's first annual list of the world's billionaires, published a quarter-century ago, had 140 names. This year, a record 1,226 billionaires made the list, with a combined net worth of $4.6 trillion, also a record and up from $4.5 trillion in 2011.

Innovation, strong consumer brands and a rebounding U.S. stock market helped produce 128 newcomers to this year's list and brought 17 former members back into the billionaire ranks. Falling stock markets, particularly in China and Russia, were mainly responsible for knocking out 117 individuals.

In addition, 12 members from the 2011 list passed away, including buyout titan Theodore Forstmann and Apple's (AAPL) Steve Jobs, whose widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, takes his spot on the 2012 list.

Overall, 460 billionaires got richer, 441 got poorer and 180 held steady.

This year's billionaires come from 58 countries. The United States remains home to more billionaires than any other nation, with 425, a gain of 12. But only three of the 10 richest hail from the United States, one fewer than last year.

Woman Killed by "Homemade Cannon"


Homicide investigators with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department are on the scene of a bizarre death in San Diego's East County.

Deputies say a man called 911 to report his wife may have been killed with a homemade cannon by accident.

Investigators along with U.S. Border Patrol agents responded to Potrero Valley Road around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Two men were working on the cannon outside the home in the Twin Lakes Resort mobile home park when it fired, sending a projectile into the home.

U.S. A Net Gas Exporter For First Time In Decades - NPR

NPR:

The U.S. has become a net exporter of gasoline for the first time in fifty years. Thanks to rising production at refineries and declining demand, the United States exported more gasoline than it imported in December. The unusual development reflects the segmented U.S. energy market — the East Coast needs to import gas while the Midwest produces a surplus.

Limbaugh's little bomb threat a publicity stunt?

And why did he call the police? That is a socialist, government agency.
