Blinding, icy snow buries Midwest

Duke the English bulldog has given new meaning to the word "dogsled."

His owner, Karen Blue, shot a video of the 75-pound pooch barreling down a slope near Kansas City, Missouri, on a bright red sled, barking all the way. He appeared to enjoy himself, and Blue got a warm chuckle out of it.

"He is obsessed with his sled," Blue wrote, when she posted the video to CNN's iReport on Thursday.

Bystanders let out whoops and cheers, as the stocky fellow stepped off the sled when the ride was up. A man shouted: "He wants more!"

Kansas probably doesn't.

The state got the brunt of the snow as a winter storm moved past, heading toward the northeast.

Wichita saw its second-highest storm snowfall total on record with 14.2 inches over two days, the weather service said.

    Today is day 1,000 for Bradley Manning in jail with no trial. There are almost 40 events planned across the country with tens of thousands that will be on the street. CNN don't you think that's something that We the People might like to hear about? No coverage? Not a peep?
    Mainstream media is a FARCE. Now back to Rubio taking a drink of water............

      I got a speedy trial once. Back in the summer of 1699, during one of my previous lives, I was accused and convicted of being a warlock. Two days later , they torched me. That probably explains why I have such a "burning" desire for things in my current life.

    Ole and Lena were sitting down to their usual cup of morning coffee
    listening to the weather report coming over the radio.
    "There will be 3 to 5 inches of snow today and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your cars on the odd numbered side of the
    streets." Ole got up from his coffee and replies "Jeez, okay."
    Two days later, again they both are sitting down with their cups of
    morning coffee and the weather forecast is, "There will be 2 to 4 inches of snow today and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your cars on the even numbered side of the streets." Ole got up from his coffee and replies, "Jeez, okay."
    Three days later, again they both are sitting down with their cups of
    coffee and the weather forecast is, "There will be 6 to 8 inches of snow today and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your cars on the..." and then the power went out and Ole didn't get the rest of the instructions.
    He says to Lena, "Jeez, what am I going to do now, Lena?"
    Lena replies, "Aw, Ole, yust leave the car in the garage."

    A lot that goes on here on our soil and abroad is kept away or suppressed. The oldest trick in the book, keep folks poorly informed , misinformed and scared. Rule them with ease.
