    “If your checking in tonight, Some of my alert feeds are buzzing about North Korea, the launch may be very soon”

    launch today if they really have a nuke to test

    launch tomorrow if they do not.

    They need something big on their founding father’s BD

    Since you did so well on the spread of the games, try your luck here

    The Great North Korean Nuke Pool of 2012



  • Coffee Steve

    Good Monring Everyone, and hellllooooooooo USN


    The credit downgrade was from Egan-Jones, they downgraded the US to AA from AA+. Egan-Jones which is much smaller than its rivals scrapped the United States’ top-level AAA rating in July, one month before Standard & Poor’s.

    While a little troubling, this one isn’t big news, they downgrade companies if they sneeze :-)

    But I admit, they are not to be totally dis-reguarded either.

    North Korea Nuke Pool

    LOL…that was fantastic

    The games have begun

    Democratic strategist and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen lobbed an insult at Ann Romney, suggesting that the 64-year-old mother of five and grandmother of 16 had never held a job.

    And then, just like that, a familiar name popped up on Twitter: @AnnDRomney.
    “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work,” Ann tweeted.

    (From the Obama Camp)
    I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly. Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in a tweet.

    Top Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod also tweeted his disapproval: “Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive.”

    Ladies & Gentlemen..Letsssssss get readyyyyyyyyy to rummmmmmmble :-)

    I love this class warfare stuff. If I were a self-made millionaire or worked hard and worked my way up in a company turning profits so a company would become successful employing other people giving them a chance at life and the government says I need to give more of my well-deserved money to us so we can give it to lazy welfare crack-addicts who do drugs all day and make kids out of wedlock I would close my company and go to China where they don’t tax the heck out of me and unions don’t strike. Oh wait. That’s happened already. Now that the government’ broke, they want us back. To pay more. Does that clown in the WH really think business will come back here to be threatened by unions or over-taxed or the real kicker to be forced to pay for a health plan when you can open up a business in another country where the unemployed line up at the gate in hopes they will be able to work for the day. Obama is a clueless fool.

    Cutting-Edge Destroyer Will Be Navy’s Biggest

    Stealthy, guided-missile Zumwalt taking shape in Maine will the biggest destroyer ever built for the US Navy

    An enormous, expensive and technology-laden warship that some Navy leaders once tried to kill because of its cost is now viewed as an important part of the Obama administration’s Asia-Pacific strategy, with advanced capabilities that the Navy’s top officer says represent the Navy’s future.

    The stealthy, guided-missile Zumwalt that’s taking shape at Bath Iron Works is the biggest destroyer ever built for the U.S. Navy.

    The low-to-the-water warship will feature a wave-piercing hull, composite deckhouse, electric drive propulsion, advanced sonar, missiles, and powerful guns that fire rocket-propelled warheads as far as 100 miles. It’s also longer and heavier than existing destroyers — but will have half the crew because of automated systems.

    “With its stealth, incredibly capable sonar system, strike capability and lower manning requirements — this is our future,” concluded Adm. Jonathan Greenert, chief of naval operations, who gave the warship his endorsement on a visit last week to Bath Iron Works, where the ships are being built.

    “Stealthy, guided-missile Zumwalt taking shape in Maine will the biggest destroyer ever built for the US Navy”

    This ship has been in the works for some time. I was on the planning and development team for Underway Replenishment. A lot of bells and whistles, robotics, specialized paints and material. Hope this class does not have the problems the San Antonio-class amphibious ships are having.

    Link is getting stuck in the filter look up ” San Antonio-class amphibious ship problems”

  • usnretirex2

    @Coffee Steve

    We had to review concepts to determine if they were practical. These concepts were at that time theatrical and had yet been fully designed and some are still only in CAD. The gun for example they are planning on is the rail gun that is still being proven out by BAE.

    That is what got the San Antonio-class in trouble.

  • Coffee Steve

    *San Antonio-class

    It seems from what I have read so far the main problem is the particles from shipyard work: slag from welding waste and grit from sand blasting etc. Which is a big problem. Which if I had a chance would ask, how is this possible, and what is the inspection protocol?

    The other problem I see so far is the combustion process in the engine itself – (Part of the lube oil filter process is to wash them out.) And how is it that at the diesel plant where lube oil purifiers normally would take out the Impurities, how is it they do not test the oil before it went in the engine?

    I’m going to read a few of the stories on this, it’s interesting,

  • Coffee Steve


    NASA is swiping back at a group of nearly 50 of its former scientists and astronauts who wrote to accuse the space agency of advocating the “extreme” position that global warming is the result of man-made carbon dioxide.

    In a March 28 letter addressed to NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, 49 former employees said the “unbridled advocacy of CO2 being the major cause of climate change is unbecoming of NASA’s history of making an objective assessment of all available scientific data prior to making decisions or public statements.”

    *Hillbilly? We haven’t heard the last of this story, those “former” NASA scientists are going to make a documentary, and afterward demand a Congressional investigation into the process of these studies.

    They were expecting 355,000 new jobless claims but it’s up to 380,000 instead. Not good.

    First we have the boss

    Rebuffing Obama’s gimmicky ‘Buffett Rule’

    President Obama admits it: His proposed “Buffett Rule” tax on millionaires is a gimmick.

    “There are others who are saying: ‘Well, this is just a gimmick. Just taxing millionaires and billionaires, just imposing the Buffett Rule, won’t do enough to close the deficit,’ ” Obama declared Wednesday. “Well, I agree.”

    Actually, the gimmick was apparent even without the president’s acknowledgment. He gave his remarks in a room in the White House complex adorned with campaign-style photos of his factory tours. On stage with him were eight props: four millionaires, each paired with a middle-class assistant. The octet smiled and nodded so much as Obama made his case that it appeared the president was sharing the stage with eight bobbleheads.

    And if that’s not enough evidence of gimmickry, after his speech Obama’s reelection campaign unveiled an online tax calculator “to see how your tax rate stacks up against Mitt Romney’s — and then see what the Buffett Rule would do.”

    then we have his trusted sidekick

    Biden: Al Franken is a ‘leading legal scholar’

    Vice President Joe Biden described former Saturday Night Live comedian, Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., as a “leading legal scholar,” presumably in the Senate, today.

    “He has been one of the leading legal scholars,” Biden said of Franken today, according to the pool report. He also said that Franken “is deadly serious” as a senator. He made the comments while recalling concerns that then-candidate Franken could not be taken seriously as a Senate candidate given his SNL work.

    Franken’s comedic spirit got him in trouble on Washington. “This isn’t ‘Saturday Night Live,’ Al,” Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had to remind the freshman senator after Franken made faces while McConnell spoke during the Supreme Court nomination process for Elena Kagan.

    Obama argued that his plan to make sure that those earning north of $1 million a year don’t pay a lower tax rate than average Americans — although gimmicky and insufficient — is an advance. “The notion that it doesn’t solve the entire problem doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t do it at all,” he explained

    Newt Gingrich Explodes: Fox News In The Tank For Romney, CNN Less Biased

    Struggling Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich exploded at Fox News Wednesday during a private meeting with Delaware Tea Party leaders, RealClearPolitics’ Scott Conroy reports

    “I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through,” accused Gingrich. “In our experience, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than Fox this year. We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of Fox, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of Fox. That’s just a fact.”
