O cool, very bullish!
This will never be reported in the liberal Galactic Empire Times (the comments are better than the article) [via ICYMI].
Look, there's a new gray swan in the black swan clusterflock! Perhaps it is a cygnet and has not molted yet.

everyone check Max Keiser's Sprott interview posted today.
I think the big New Madrid Shake is coming.
Read about the "unexpected" little quake in Spain yesterday?
Of course there is the matter of DHS/FEMA request for bid for 12 million long shelf life meals and 6 million body bags for the New Madrid Fault Zone two months ago. Big "out of stock" item in survival food sites.
FEMA NLE 2011 begins may 16th http://www.henryco.com/publicsafety/ema/publicreleases/Earthquake%20Press%20Release%202011.pdf if there is a coincidental (HAARP) earthquake during this exercise it will be time to buy the farm!
The natural periodicity of New Madrid is around every 500 years and the last major event was 199 years ago. Until now I have not considered HAARP as capable of producing seismic events, but if the New Madrid fires mid-cycle I may have to reconsider. The body bags are more likely the result of some HS district director needing to spend his funding so it will be renewed next year.
??? The last seismic event was 500 years ago? Who recorded it? Where are such absurd stats pulled from?
A series of three to five major earthquakes (believed to have been magnitude 7.0 or larger earthquakes) occurred in the NMSZ in the two month period between Dec. 16, 1811 and February 7, 1812. Several thousand additional “smaller” earthquakes occurred during the three month period from Dec. 16, 1811 to March 16, 1812. These included 15 quakes of magnitude 6.5 to 8 (the size range of the 1989 San Francisco, 1994 Los Angeles and 1995 Kobe, Japan earthquakes) and 189 quakes of magnitude 5 to 6.5. Two thousand of these quakes were felt by people, indicated by crude seismograph instruments and recorded in personal journals at Louisville, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio, which are respectively 250 and 350 miles away. The New Madrid area was at the very frontier of European settlement at this time so there were very few non-native Americans living in the immediate area to report the earthquakes.
Betty, you went to public school didn't you?

Hang around on 3.39 MHz and see what's going on ;-)
See? No problems:
A worker at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant fell unconscious at work on Saturday and later died.
The worker in his 60s complained of ill health while working at a waste processing facility. He worked for a subcontracting firm of Tokyo Electric Power Company.
The man was taken to a medical office in the plant, where he was found to have lost consciousness. He was then taken by ambulance to a hospital in Iwaki City and confirmed dead shortly after 9:30 AM. The cause of his death is unknown.
Tokyo Electric says the worker had been transporting equipment since Friday. He was scheduled to work for 3 hours from 6:00 AM on Saturday.
The company says the worker had put on a full protective suit and was not exposed to radioactive substances.
This was the first time that a worker at the Daiichi plant died after the March 11th disaster.

The web of lies is mindboggling.
Neato, but makes sense of just being prepared in context of the seemingly increased geological activity throughout the world.
Spit on my keyboard when I read this comment:
"Sadly, even this victory likely won't satisfy Vader's critics -- they can't stand that he is black."
You were right, the comments are great!
That has got to be the funniest parody I've ever seen; the comments are true comedy gold.
The best part is clicking back and forth between the link to the original NYTimes article and watching Obama transform into Vader and vice-versa.
Nice! Use the Farce...feel the Farce flowing around you!
Long FEMA trailers?
This is insufficient information for our leaders to make a decision. Erase the production information and replace it with their political donation information, THEN a political decision can be made.
parking more buses
Quick, someone find some athletic stadiums to shove everyone into. We need martial law, take away the South's guns.
I've seen some SEC games at Tiger Stadium on TV. Everyone can hang there till the water receeds.
And Dr. Head, we can always use more practice. I think you will find martial law backfires down here. The soldiers will want to be on the side with better aim (and manners). Where do you think all these volunteers come from, Boston?
National flood insurance and federal assistance should pick up the tab.. and look at all the new economic activity that will result.
Very bullish developments.
Question - what funds did the flood insurers "invest" all of those premiums in? Munibonds? LMFAO
I thought so too, but apparently a lot of the people in the flood plain below the levees get letters from the Army Corp of Engineers every year stating they could be flooded and the .Gov will not be responsible.
give them all FEMA cards...we can't have anything bad happen to black people
Trav, that is just the headline benefit brigade. This is going to jack up your food and energy supply and you need to hope that since this is a conscious decision to divert water that enough compensation is allocated to the affected parties that they are still around to produce next year. If not, it might be worth an FOI to see whose pockets those who end up with titles to the properties have been lining.
you think this is about black people? lol, you're such a joke dude
"National flood insurance..."
"National flood insurance..."
Nope, annual letter from the Corpse of Engineers takes care of that. Paraphrasing: 'you stupid cajuns are in a place where we might flood any time, no insurance, u b hosed.'
Dump the exposed fuku fuel rods in the river and the floodwater will evaporate.
Solve 2 problems at once.
Can't they just put a tent under it?
This is the kind of thinking that will get you a wonderful position in the asminstrative offices. Are you a good public speaker?
In Baton Rouge and went to the levee at lunch. They are serious down here. They have police on horseback riding up and down the levee in the CBD. Remember to flush twice, New Orleans needs the water.
I predict a levee breach and massive inland flooding.
How close to the top of the levee is the river?
My brother in NOLA said it is surreal to drive down Tchoupitoulas and look up at the hulls of ships.
If an East bank levee fails in the wrong place, it is game over.
About 3 to 6 feet where I was standing. They won't let you on the levee at all.
Always is at the LPGA......
Janet Reno still has a Secret Service detail???
Thanks for that cheery assessment. Bullish, bully, bully! Hi-ho, it's Friday, let the drinking commence.
On my second already and I need to fix another cocktail. This one is broken.
I hope we kept the receipt for the Louisiana Purchase.
+60 million francs ($11,250,000) + cancellation of debts worth 18 million francs ($3,750,000) = 15 million dollars for the Louisiana territory ($219 million in 2010 dollars)
FYI to all: Chemical plants and refineries on the gulf coast are designed to go through cat 5 storms and be OK if flooded. That doesn't mean that they are built or maintained correctly. But this does happen from time-to-time.
As a chemical engineer and an attorney, I'm fairly shocked by how bad Fukushima was designed, located and maintainted. That was completely insane. But other than BP, most of our gulf coast facilities should be OK.
If opened, a lot of wells will shut (albeit temporarily) as the water flows through the Atchafalya Basin
Here it comes...
'Initial unemployment claims rose unexpectedly last week due to flooding along the Mississippi river.'
You know that shit is coming. Don't even bother to act surprised.
But what about all the sandbagger jobs created? Bullish! sarc/
This is Keynesian economics at its best. Think about it. New levees will need to be built, farmland will need to be reworked, we have commodity destruction in agriculture, and homes will need to be fixed. This will be the only GDP growth that will be seen and naturally occurring. The commies couldn't even dream of this wonderful boost to growth, fuck the displaced right?
Shit, with the New Deal in 1933, for example, Congress had to actually pass the Agricultural Adjustment Act (AAA) to provide economic relief to farmers. The AAA had at its core a plan to raise crop prices by paying farmers a subsidy to compensate for voluntary cutbacks in production. Funds for the payments would be generated by a tax levied on industries that processed crops. By the time the act had become law, however, the growing season was well underway, and the AAA encouraged farmers to plow under their abundant crops.
Now we can just "turn on the water", no legislation needed bitchez. FDR would be fucking proud.
The great lakes will dump into the gulf of mexico. The mississipi will be like 30 miles across.
Hhaarp technician #1: So, you think that if we make it rain here, we can drive the water down the Mississippi and flush out the gulf from some of that toxic waste?
Technician #2: Yeah, we might not get it just right, but probly it'll work. I mean we went a bit overboard in Japan. Now I can't eat the fukking strawberries from cali.
Hhaarp technician #1: Ok then, I'll get the ok from the boss...he won't care, he's on pron and you fire up the rain maker.
Go for it.
No wait. Maybe declare an emergency, first, before it's too late.
But don't worry, no need to after all, it's all temporary. Commodity prices should fall and stocks rise.
