Not looking at it since it's a newsmax product, but is this the "Aftershock Survivial Summit"?

Where they're selling you an investment plan? It has the word "aftershock" in the URL is why I'm asking. I have a relative who has lost their ass after falling for this and buying gold when it was up. Poor thing.

Me, I'm stocking up on liquor. If the economy crashes I'll be able to barter it for goods and services. If not, I'm having a HUGE economic recovery party at mi casa.

‘Romney Girl’ Mocks Life in His World as ‘Taxless,’ ‘Fantastic’

With Obama Girl’s crush on the president fading since her provocative 2008 YouTube video, another scantily clad YouTube lover has stepped up to fill the candidate-crush void, this time mocking Mitt Romney as “fantastic.”

Obama Girl was infatuated, but Romney Girl is satirically infuriated by her candidate of choice. In a parody music video set to the tune of Aqua’s “Barbie Girl,” Romney Girl portrays a Swiss woman taking advantage of the perks that come with Romney’s wealth, like fur coats, hot tubs and shiny red convertibles, all while not-so-subtly criticizing the candidate for his $255 million net worth.

“I’m a Romney girl, in a Romney world. Life is taxless. It’s fantastic,” Romney Girl sings in the video, produced by progressive activist group the Agenda Project. “Silver-tip your hair, tax shelters everywhere, outsource nation, Bain is his creation.”

The three-minute video goes on to criticize Romney satirically for founding the investment firm Bain Capital, having offshore bank accounts and not releasing his tax returns. A condensed one-minute version of the music video is part of an Agenda Project ad buy running in New York, Washington, D.C., Denver, Wisconsin and Raleigh, N.C.

Son of an undocumented immigrant worker wins silver medal

London Olympics: Leo Manzano rallies for silver in men's 1,500

LONDON — The U.S. is becoming a middle-distance and distance force at the Olympic track and field competition.
Leo Manzano of Marble Falls, Texas, surged from sixth at the top of the stretch to finish second in the men’s 1,500 meters Tuesday night, the first American man to win a medal in that event since Jim Ryun in 1968.

One example tells the story, as in the case of runner Leo Manzano, son of an undocumented immigrant worker. Manzano was crazy about sports from the time he was a toddler, and at high school in Marble Falls, Texas, he won nine state championships.
This year his victory in a 1,500-meter race earned him a place on the team going to London.

Leo's also a graduate of the University of Texas. He is a lot of talent in a 5' 5" package. I'm extremely proud of him tonight and just wanted to share.
