Riders of the Storm

Nobody Flashes: As many have heard by now, St. Louis was hit by a F4 tornado, and since I was only about seven to ten miles from the touchdown of this beast, my electric was off last night, as were about 46,000 other people. Our house, luckily, our house was passed over, so many houses near here, weren't.

St. Louis, the city, holds the record for being hit by the most tornados, in the United States, and this one caused quite a bit of damage. Luckily, as we hid in the basement, (My husband, my dogs, and me) --as the lights went out, as we watched the flashes of lighting through the basement windows, somehow I knew we would just miss it. It was quiet...much too quiet for a storm....almost like the air was being sucked up for some much needed energy.

Lambert Field, the airport that was really destroyed, has been there since Lindbergh kept his famous Spirit of St. Louis in the field. The "modern" design was modern back in the fifties and the truth be told, it was old. Sometime during the Bush administration, American Airlines pulled its main hub out, then the National Guard Jet Pilots were ended, (My fly boys) and the strikes at Delta took the rest. Where once we could see on any night, seven or eight planes waiting to land, now we can go for days without seeing any airplanes in the sky, at all.

This is one of the reasons why there were so few casualties at the airport when the F4 hit.

I can actually see the airport from the roof of my house, that's how close I live to it. So, after the electric went out, I laid in the dark, listening to the radio comments.


"Hi guys, I've been sitting dead stop in the highway ,since 8.30 tonight, it's now 11.30 and we are finally moving" said one guy.

"I was in a plane, and we couldn't get to the tarmac because it was lighting" said one lady. "Then I saw the tornado, and we felt the plane shack, and I we all thought it was going to flip over, they got us off by emergency exit, and the whole airport looks like a war zone."

Okay..I thought. The airport got hit. I went to sleep. But..the next day we all saw the devastation...this baby went for miles. Home after home was destroyed. Giant trees, power lines, whole streets made impassible.

So, my little dying town of St. Louis made the news. China, has already signed an agreement with the mayor to make St. Louis's Lambert Field a major hub, so maybe China will tear down that old worn-out building and build another one.

And if that happens...then this nobody is going to wonder. One guy actually predicted, that a tornado would destroy the St. Louis Airport two days ago. He showed Satellite images of how they can manipulate storms to do just what they want.

Creepy. And who has this science down to a fine art?


Now, having said that...there was such a small loss of life here, you have to wonder. (so far, none) ---Is Good Friday a lucky day to have a tornado? Was it because the weather people did a good job of warning everybody? Was it because the date was 4/22/11? (You know how I feel about 22 and 11!) Or was it simply because, the houses that were hit, all have basements? And nowadays, the newer homes have no basements because of the cost. My son has one of those newer houses, and I wonder...where does he go?

Well, I don't know. But I DO know as I write this I hear thunder outside. They have predicted more of the same for the next four days. We could get more F4 tornadoes.

It's been a strange storm, in the world, all the way around. The best we can all do is to ride it out.

In that case, I had better get some sleep.

Tell the Air Controller Unions to Go Take a nice long forever more Nap!

Nobody Wins: Recently, air traffic controllers in America have been falling asleep.

Not good.

Two airplanes had to land themselves recently at Reagan National because the supervisor of the air traffic controllers fell asleep. He said he had done a four night in a row shift, and just couldn't do it. Another air traffic controller in Nevada fell asleep, and a small private plane had to land itself. Since then, sleepy controller's have been falling out of the airwaves.

You would never guess that civilization has gotten as far as it has, when you consider that the problem of air traffic controllers can be solved with a simple scientific remedy...and what's that you may ask?

Get rid of the union--the trial and error evidence is already in. (yeah, that's nobody's science model) Their leaders have worms in their heads.

This from the Washington Post:

More than half of air controllers told their union in a survey taken more than a
year ago that they wanted to address quick turnaround times on shifts and other
factors that increase fatigue

Exactly. This has been going on in all union jobs. Whether it's Boeing, Ford, or the meat industry. Smack is very popular with the illegal's who are working the midnight shift in the meat packing factories, because if THEY fall asleep, they can lose a leg or arm. No wonder the drug lords are getting rich.

Here are some of my Nobody facts: believe them or not.

Fact: Human beings, along with all animals, insects, and most other living things have what is called a circadian rhythm. It's about as much as part of us as our eyeballs. It is handled in a sweet little itty bitty, nub in your hypothalamus called the SCN. The SCN is your internal clock. Most people wake up at the same time, and get tired at the same time. People on daytime schedules usually get sleepy around 3pm..and 3am.

Fact: You cannot mess with this clock. Resetting it is almost impossible and takes a very long time. It would be like trying to change the size of your feet.

Fact: The Unions have the idiotic habit of making men work in "shifts." One week, they are expected to go in at 3pm...for a few days, then 5 pm for a few day, than 10 pm...etc. Doctors have told them that this will get them used to doing the night shift. These doctors were paid by the unions, of course.

Fact: It takes a lot longer than a week for the body to get used to the new shifts in such a short time. In fact, some people never get used to it.

Fact: When a brain is sleepy, it will go to sleep. There are strong chemicals at work here, and unless you are caffeined to the will fall asleep. Lots of people do it while driving, but they are just poor suckers. Our Senators can't even stay awake long enough to make it to work, let alone be worried about people sleeping in traffic. I could go into a LONG rant about sleeping senators here...but I won't.

You're welcome.

Fact: Therefore, the answer is to hire people that are willing to work a steady midnight shift for over a year. After that, let them take a vacation...and switch to a newer shift, preferably two hours later.

Fact: Nobody wants to work the midnight shift...therefore the problem.

How do I know this? I once, in a self-imposed nobody experiment, tried to change my own circadian took me three whole weeks...and I found it almost impossible to stay awake at the times I was supposed to be awake. Once I got on the early morning schedule I was aiming for, my SCN said..."Well, that was painful wasn't It? Why in the world did you do it?"
A month later, I was back on my own SCN time.

So, why do the unions keep doing these "shifts" when it's obvious no human alive can work them without drugs?

Like I said: Get rid of the unions. There would be PLENTY of people who would work for a whole year of a midnight shift for the salary of $150,000.

Privatize it. OR...make the workers take ten minute naps like they do in China. Or put tazers in their chairs when they fall asleep, or computer chips on the moniters which can tell that you are sleeping. They have this technolgoy for cars? Why not use them?

But then...if they privatized the controllers (Canada has done this with great success) the union wouldn't get it's dues now would it? And the Democratic Party would have one less piggy bank to rob.

Nobody Remembers the First President

Nobody Remembers: While we all have been taught that George Washington was the first President, (and technically, he was) it still sad that these other guys have been erased out of the history books. I got this in an email today...and I thought it was interesting.

For all you history buffs out there. As they say, you learn something new every day.

Who Was The First President? I'm sure that George Washington was your best guess. After all, no one else comes to mind. But think back to your history books - The United States declared its independence in 1776 yet Washington did not take office until April 30,1789.

So who was running the country during these initial years of this young country? It was the first eight U. S. Presidents. In fact, the first President of the United States was one John Hanson.

The new country was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation. This document was actually proposed on June 11, 1776, but not agreed upon by Congress until November15, 1777.

Maryland refused to sign this document until Virginia and New York ceded their western lands (Maryland was afraid that these states would gain too much power in the new government from such large amounts of land).

Once the signing took place in 1781, a President was needed to run the Country. John Hanson was chosen unanimously by Congress (which included George Washington). In fact, all the other potential candidates refused to run against him, as he was a major player in the revolution and an extremely influential member of Congress.

As the first President, Hanson had quite the shoes to fill. No one had ever been President and the role was poorly defined. His actions in office would set precedent for all future Presidents. He took office just as the Revolutionary War ended. Almost immediately, the troops demanded to be paid. As would be expected after any long war, there were no funds to meet the salaries. As a result, the soldiers threatened to overthrow the new government and put Washington on the throne as a monarch.

All the members of Congress ran for their lives, leaving Hanson as the only guy left running the government. He somehow managed to calm the troops down and hold the country together. If he had failed, the government would have fallen almost immediately and everyone would have been bowing to King Washington.

NOBODY NOTES: Other historians, credit a meeting of all the officers, which was set up by George Washington in order to talk sense into the officers who were contemplating this action, and in which he gave a speech so moving, that they all went home, without a fight. So, maybe both men were due credit.

Hanson, as President, ordered all foreign troops off American soil, as well as the removal of all foreign flags. This was quite the feat, considering the fact that so many European countries had a stake in the United States since the days following Columbus.

Hanson established the Great Seal of the United States, which all Presidents have since been required to use on all official documents. President Hanson also established the first Treasury Department, the first Secretary of! War, and the first Foreign Affairs Department. Lastly, he declared that the fourth Thursday of every November was to be Thanksgiving Day, which is still true today.

The Articles of Confederation only allowed a President to serve a one year term during any three year period, so Hanson actually accomplished quite a bit in such little time. Seven other presidents were elected after him:

Elias Boudinot (1782-83),

Thomas Mifflin (1783-84),

Richard Henry Lee (1784-85),

John Hancock (1785-86),

Nathan Gorman (1786-87),

Arthur St. Clair (1787-88), and

Cyrus Griffin (1788-89)

All prior to Washington taking office. So what happened? Why don't we hear about the first eight presidents? It's quite simple - The Articles of Confederation didn't work well. The individual states had too much power and nothing could be agreed upon. A new doctrine needed to be written - something we know as the Constitution.

And that leads us to the end of our story. George Washington was definitely not the first President of the United States. He was the first President of the United States under the Constitution we follow today. And the first eight Presidents are forgotten in history.


(It took 8 years for us to establish a successful government. Remember this when you hear that so little progress has been make during these last 3 years in establishing a Government in Iraq.)

Robert Redford: Still Waiting for CHANGE

Nobody Cares: Robert Redford has come out of the woods to promote his new movie called "The Conspirator." It's about some woman who was at the house were the plot to assassinate Lincoln was hatched, and she claimed to be innocent of the whole thing. Evidently, there was corruption on the jury, and the President got involved. (So what else is new?)

Robert says, "She was stoic in the defense of herself. And they put her in a military tribunal, which should have been a civil trial. This is tricky territory. When I got the script, I though, uh oh. There are obvious parallels with how this country is today. We're not making something up here to make a political point. It's there. It's up to the audience to find it and say 'Wow, how have we progressed? Have we? Or are we repeating ourselves? But I can't talk about that."

Wuss. Why don't you just say you think all Muslim terrorists should have a civil trial?

Hey, as a movie star, I like Robert Redford. He's made a lot of entertaining films. But, if my husband makes me watch Jeremiah Johnson one more time, I think I'll start stewing rabbits for his dinner. When it comes to politics, I'd have a hard time sitting in the same log cabin with him, and I would probably be serving him chicken necks.

He added this:

The moderns are the hi-tech Silicon Valley people. The traditionalists on
the lower end of it are the people who don't want change, they're afraid of
change, therefore they have anger. The fear card is a very big powerful card and
when you have people afraid of change, they'll do anything to prevent it.
They're doing it because they're limited, frightened of people who are not as

Nobody Says-- You're damn right we don't want to change America into a communist country, where a few rich boys like you grab all the land to "protect" our "lower" proclivities to want to go and fish and enjoy them ourselves. And you're damn right some of us are afraid of all the new technology where cell phones have trackers in them, kids can be watched from computers at school, and they can find out wherever we drive by satellite chips in our cars. We are truly afraid of what this power means in the hands of a few.

Redford continues and says the real problem in the country is the "traditionalists."

Anyone who loves America...I guess is the problem.

He's not happy with Obama either. He says the left does its level best to preserve a corrupting status- quo, even if it means creating an unsustainable future for our children and bankrupting our great nation.

Nobody Says: Make up your mind Robert. Or, are you talking about the bears, and the coyotes?

Redford, also doesn't like Sarah Palin. "I think Sarah Palin, part of her strength is how limited she is." This is coming from a man who has the biggest collection of porn video's outside in his barn at Sundance. Yeah, I suppose next to Robert, she IS limited in knowing how many times Debbie Does Dallas.

Robert Redford likes to see himself as a modern day Jeremiah Johnson. But I would bet you a whole wagon of rabbit skins that if Robert Redford and Sarah Palin were dropped off in the wilderness of Alaska, Robert Redford would not make it back to his Sundance without her.

I'm just saying.

Charlie Manson VS Van Jones: Great Criminal Minds Think Alike!

Nobody's Perfect:

If you have not had a good laugh today, then welcome to the "future absurdity" in these two men, who spoke out this week, and agreed on the future of the planet in word, and thought.

One's in jail. The other one should be.

Let's start with Charlie Manson, the psycho who brainwashed a bunch of young stoned idiots into going down and butchering a house full of "rich pigs." Charlie was very jealous of the "rich," remember? Eight innocent people were butchered 40 years ago, by a man who had the gift of gab and the art of mind control down pretty well. Charlie's followers were so messed up the night when Charlie sent them on their mission, that they even butchered a very pregnant Sharon Tate, and bragged about it.

So, what does this master brain manipulator psycho finally say after 20 years of silence?

Everyone’s God and if we don’t wake up to that there’s going to be no weather because our polar caps are melting because we’re doing bad things to the atmosphere. 'If we don’t change that as rapidly as I’m speaking to you now, if we don’t put the green back on the planet and put the trees back that we’ve butchered, if we don’t go to war against the problem...'

And then he lets us all think-- that he will send another FAMILY out to kill us all for destroying the earth.

Really Charlie...when was the last time you got near a tree?

Charlie Manson CARES about the planet everybody..are you touched?

And then there's Van Jones (Obama's old czar) who says," Civilization is fueled by death."

Yes, according to Van Jones, we are using DEAD things to run our greedy lives.


Have we no feelings for that poor dead oil? What about that dead coal, that we dig up, with our greedy hands, tearing it from its beds in the nice comfy soils and KILLING IT! The crimes of humanity! And what do we do to this poor oil and innocent coal! WE BURN THEM! We send them all to torture and burn in some machine! Hitler could not even have imagined such a holocaust!

No, Van Jones says we should turn and get the Saudi Arabian energy, which he says is up in the AMERICAN sky...just look up! You will see it!

I ran outside very excited to see Saudi Arabia, but sun..lots of tornado's, rain, clouds. They sure could have used Saudi Arabia's help this week down in the Southwest. Really. I mean--- I know that Van Jones and Obama love the Muslims, but trying to say that Saudi Arabia is as pure as the SUN and it's in the American sky?

You know, Van Jones...they really NEED you in Cairo.

Charlie Manson, may be stuck in his own coo-coo land, but he has a lot in common with Van Jones and Al Gore. They all believe in redistribution of wealth, global warming, mind manipulation; They all have visions of death, and they all think they are God.

Nobody says that this is proof that sick minds think alike, so I'll say it.

Van Jones is one hundred times more dangerous than Charlie Mansion, because he has Obama and a vast network of greedy politicians wanting to "steal" from the rich, (and redistribute the money to themselves and the Muslims) and send the poor blacks out to work in their "redistribution" camps of inner cities slave farmers, and solar panel constructors.

We don't have cotton plantations anymore...but we sure do need solar panels built ya' all! We will have a plantation of Wind Mills for you to work on too! Forget those poor oil and coal, let them stay dead and in peace, for god's sake...leave them be!

Look up! It's a bird, it's a plane...NO! It's Saudi Arabia looking for just one soul to be enlighten by Van Jones's future.

So, I'd say, Van Jones, if you're looking for that soul to help you sell your global warming warnings all over the globe...Charlie is waiting, with his own inconvenient truth.

Go ahead..let the Saudi Arabian sunshine in, and go see him, before some solar flare hits you real hard and knocks you right into a pile of big, black, and very dead coal. You...surrounded by all that death?

How About a Trump/Palin ticket?

Nobody's Opinion: You gotta admit, last week Trump dominated the airways. Everyone is now focused on the Donald, which has given a much welcomed distraction from those nasty and violent tea party people. (Nobody says with a laugh.) The White House has released its opinion, and everyone was repeating it on every station, like the rudderless parrots that they are: The opinion is that Donald Trump has zero chance of becoming President. It's the old "repeat it enough and it becomes fact routine." Carl Rove, who ALSO dishes the tea party candidates whenever he gets his little copy-cat Glenn Beck blackboard up off his lap with his pudgy little fingers, says Trump is a joke. You know, no matter what you think of the guy...he HAS accomplished quite a few things in his call him a joke shows us that Carl is scared. Carl needs to work on his vocabulary. Jesse Ventura, who wants to be VP to Ron Paul, says he thinks the Donald is just doing it for his ratings. Lou Dobbs, reflected that he wouldn't trust Trump the rich man, because it's the rich elites who want a global government, and he hobnobs with them all. Throw in a million jokes about his hair walking by itself, and you get the picture...nobody wants Donald to run. Glenn Beck has been especially vicious to the guy. He's got Allen West on his mind. Allen West is a good pick, but how is he on finance? Foreign affairs? Is he ready for prime time? Ann Coulter is going to probably cut her long hair, and disown God, if New Jersey's governor ....doesn't run. Right now, Lassie could run and would probably get enough votes in Iowa to beat Obama. So, the ONLY supporter Donald seems to have at the moment is Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage, and Rush is the guy you want to be behind you if you do run. I find it very disingenuous that conservatives fight tooth and nails for capitalism, and yet, when a very rich non-politician wants to run for office, they attack him for only wanting to be President to further his own agenda. And yet, what are Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney? Are they not rich men? What is Mitt's agenda? Is there a law that says only a politician can run for office? The critics have condemned Trump for hanging out with all the rich and powerful. Are you going to tell me that Mitt Romney hangs out at the local McDonalds? His father was a senator. Here is a man who worked hard and "made" it by the system, and they don't trust him. And then there's Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin came out in Wisconsin with a rousing speech last week, and many of us were glad to see her get in more of a fighting spirit under her skirt. I found it funny how she has changed her position on the tea party. I watched her say on The Glenn Beck Show, that the tea party people simply must come into the Republican Party. BUT...In her speech, she went after the GOP, and their pitiful budget demands. She is back courting the tea party people, which makes you wonder if she knows that the GOP going to pick Mitt to run, leaving her out in the cold? The GOP, who have already, I'm sure, picked their man.. was quick to let everyone know the fact that Donald Trump has hired Obama's campaign manager, insinuating that Donald is running on behalf of the Democrats. Well, gee, the guy DID get a man who's name sounded like our worst enemy elected, didn't he? He beat the Clintons' political machine...didn't he? Do not true capitalists get the best man for the buck? Here's what I really like about him. Both the Republican party and the Democratic party are trying to find ways to "pay off our debt" and that is a pipe dream. The Republicans want all Americans who are working their butts off, to "pay" for all those Wall Street Criminals, who along with the Clintons, Bushes and Obama, demolished America--- our hopes, our dreams, our fortunes, and sent the money overseas....We pay for their vast 'mistakes' or more to reality, their vast theft. If WE don't pay their bills, our children will. What a scam! Donald would not punish the American people for the crimes of the elites, so he says. He will help pay off the debt by getting the money from the Chinese and OPEC instead of us. The older generations wouldn't have to suffer. And why should we? Sarah has Alaska. But we have a fight, not only with the Muslims, and the Chinese, but with our own greedy politicians who are basically working for the Corporations of America, and the radical left dreams of Soros and his communists. Sarah could stand up to the problems in the Congress and Trump could concentrate on the global stuff. He really does have more experience in that area, and isn't afraid to admit we have a Muslim problem. Sarah is always careful not to offend. They'd make a good pair. Good cop, bad cop. (Maybe Allen West would consider VP. He would be good at fighting Congress.) And then, god willing, if they both clean up the house, Sarah would then get a good shot at being the first woman President. It's a tea party dream ticket. Make Ron Paul head of the Treasury. You know, if the GOP want to lose, they will run someone they know will lose. They ran McCain to lose, and Dole. Come on...even a regular citizen would not have run such lame contenders. Why would they want Obama to win you may ask? They want Obama to do another four years, because he is doing a good job of furthering the globalization of the world by collapsing the US which has to be done in order for the New World Order to fulfill its final destination. So, they will run Mitt Romney. (That's why we call them Rhino's.) SO...why don't Donald and Sarah run together? A strong man with a strong woman? If the Republicans run on another ticket. Trump will get enough democrats to vote for him that he would win. Nobody Knows if Sarah would even consider being VP again...but Nobody can dream can't I?
