    Gooooood. Maybe it will wash away some Obama voters. They will be flooding across the borders soon to vote in states without voter ID requirements.

    Yawn. Big deal. Over 400 EQs struck Southern California two weeks ago, incl.. 5.2 and 4's. We don't get many EQs in Colorado, and 80% of them have been expained by underground blasting to accomodade expanding military facilities.
    But we DO get hurricanes. A lot of people didn't know that.

    Is it stupid or is it just me that thinks abts get hurt. You humans always think of yourselves. Did you know that insects outweigh humans, and without an insect obesity epidemic. Think about that. Not even water buffalo suffer from obesity.
    Learn from the ant and the water buffalo. Store for the winter and eat plenty of greens. 🙂

    @Truth. "What is Truth?", said Roman procurator of Israel , Pontius Pilate, in rsponse to Jesus Christ, a cartoon.
    AND, anything to keep President obama from pardoning Geroge W Bush and the Dick Cheney for another 4 years.
    As long as president Obama doesn't lose and so pardon these suspects, we will have four more years to nail them down.

  10. Tonto @ Jeff Frank, community org

    Why you from community as if guarded from ghetto? Why for you come to form aliiance with people already allied? How you say redundant?
    And look. By your very doing of this, you show that US is more afraid of US than them.
    For example, we see you instrumental in "our" blog community and also see you seeing the obvioius. (partisan microbloggers bloggers already aligned, incl tokens) BUT!!! Have you organized a duct tape drive to make sure old ladyies are ready for alquida dirty bombs? (are you organizing communities of terrorists attack prepared people, or just blog attack. Money where mouth is stuff)

  11. Tonto and 1837 EQ

    And of interest, recent EQ tsunamis have washed-up some very unusual creatures onto earths shores, and unearthed many others. Some are HUGE sharklike creatures and the newscast of the one in Indonesia was made before the behnouth could be unearthed! HUGE creatures, and tohers unusual. (on Youtube)
    And of course we have always had artifacts of giant human skulls and skeletons...one man found a 4' human footprint in nothern S. Africa near Swasiland. Giants did roam this earth.
