Wintry Summer Blast Arrives In The West With Record Cold And Snow

 

 

 

” The calendar may still say summer, but old man winter barreled his way in to ruin the fun, dumping up to 20 inches of snow across the Rockies and sending temperatures plunging to as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit in Wyoming, with wind chills — yes, wind chills — in the 20s as far south as Denver, Colorado, on Friday morning.

  It’s not unusual to see snow in the Rocky Mountains or even in Denver in September, but the strength of this cold air mass, and the snow totals, were both noteworthy.

  The snow caused major tree damage in Cody and Buffalo, Wyoming, where up to 10 inches fell on Wednesday night and Thursday. According to the National Weather Service, this was earliest recorded snowfall for Cody (by one day), where records date back to 1915. The temperature in Jackson, Wyoming, dropped to 18 degrees Fahrenheit on Friday morning. “

Meet The Darling Little Girl A KFC Kicked Out For Being Disfigured By A Pit Bull Attack

 

 

KFC Shame

 

 

” A family, including a 3 year old girl, went to a KFC restaurant in Jackson, Mississippi to have lunch last week. The family ordered her a large sweet tea and some mashed potatoes.

  However, some customers complained that the girl was frightening them and the restaurant asked her and her family to leave.

  See, the 3 year old girl, Victoria Wilcher, survived a pit bull attack at her grandmother’s house in April and she was still scarred from the attack. She suffered numerous scars and injuries in that attack and she was still on a feeding tube when the family went into KFC.”

 

 

 To the individuals that complained and felt they had a right to be offended by this little girl’s injuries and to the management at the Kentucky Fried Chicken in question we say , pardon our French , fuck you . YOU are the ones that should be ashamed of yourselves .

   It is a very sorry commentary that our society has sunk so low as to believe we have the RIGHT to not be OFFENDED. We have truly become a “Nation Of Wussies” and of course that “wussification” starts a 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

 

   To their credit corporate KFC is trying to make amends …

 

 

” KFC’s social media person responded and apologized to the family and promised an investigation on the matter. KFC also promised to do something special and acceptable for the family to compensate for this.”

Looming, Creeping Landslide Splits Home In Wyoming

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A sudden lurch in a creeping landslide in the northwest Wyoming resort town of Jackson split a house in two and forced workers to abandon just-begun efforts to stabilize the hillside.

 A huge crack in the ground that had opened up under the house a couple weeks ago shifted several feet downhill in less than a day, breaking off a room or two and leaving a door swinging above the precipice. Rocks and dirt tumbled down in an almost constant stream and a geologist warned much bigger chunks could fall. The ground had been moving at a rate of an inch a day.

“ As it starts to get moving, it will start to get faster,” George Machan, a landslide specialist consulting for the town, said at a town meeting Friday.

  Still, Machan said the ground was unlikely to liquefy and collapse suddenly like the March 22 landslide in Oso, Wash., that killed 39 people.

  More likely, large blocks of earth would tumble down piece by piece, he said, perpetuating the drawn-out threat to four homes on the hill and to two apartment buildings and four businesses below.”

Meet Chokwe Lumumba , Black Separatist Mayor Of Jackson Mississippi

 

 

 

” Voters in Jackson, Miss., a mid-sized city in the heart of the Deep South, have picked a Democrat as their mayor. What’s different about this individual is that he is a former leader of the Republic of New Afrika, a group dedicated to creating an independent black nation out of five southern states.

Now leading the city of about 175,000 is Chokwe Lumumba – who has a long history of radical activism and whose plans for the largest city in Mississippi could be called “revolutionary.”

A co-founder of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, which promotes black “self-determination,” Lumumba was sworn in on July 1, after winning 86 percent of the vote in the general election.

Lumumba also has earned the highest praise from the Final Call, the official publication of the Nation of Islam, which called his electoral victory one of the “most important progressive political victories on a long list of important political leaders.” “

Review: Director Peter Jackson Takes ‘An Unexpected Journey’ With Untested Technology

 

 

 

” The first entry of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy is a well paced, exciting piece of work, a welcome return to the world of Middle Earth Jackson so vividly brought to life between 2001 and 2003 in his massive, and massively profitable, Lord of the Rings films.

But then, I could be wrong. The film, as viewed in the director’s preferred format of “high frame rate” 3D, veers wildly from a stately demonstration of 3D’s potential, to a cheap-looking mess better suited for a local PBS affiliate, to a pan-and-scanned-to-death feature on basic cable. Such incongruities occasionally leave the audience wondering what, exactly, it has just seen. “

  I’m a little late to this party , thanks to Bob Owens for pointing me to this Examiner article about the wondrous state of racial affairs , courtesy of the great racial “healer”.

” Al Sharpton recently said that Republicans were waging a war on Black people, (and) time to fire
back. I missed the memo; I didn’t realize Republicans had done that, and I’m not sure under whose orders.”

Fan the flames Rev ,

” Sharpton concluded that
Republicans are trying to take back the achievements of Blacks over the last half century because they don’t like the idea of a Black president. He’s simply fueling the flames of violence, hoping Black Americans will fight. “
