The sun released an X7-class solar flare this morning

(see spaceweather.com and others ....).

 

The main thrust of radiation was well away from our planet

 

Its hard for this amateur to judge how much damage this could have done

if it had been aimed at us .... a few satellites?  maybe many?  maybe an electric grid or two?

this is the second time this year already that we've had a near-miss,

and the sun still has two years to go on the ascendant of its sunspot cycle ....

It will disable computers also, ATM,s will be useless. You could have a million dollars in the Bank and no access to it.

The only cash you got is whats in your wallet or hidden away at home. Banks will not open because if they did their would be a major bank run.

The grid goes down and in 2 weeks 90% of the people living in big cities will be dead.

 

Scary stuff.

India owes Iran $4.8 Billion and has paid $1 Billion already..

How much Aid goes to India? http://www.usaid.gov/in/

The United States has an embargo in Place??????? What the Fuck are those dirty fucking towel heads doing with our money? Giving it to Iran?

 

Someone with common sense needs to clear out Washington DC of ALL the Lobby Whores and Status Quo Groomed Personalities! So that America can get itself back on track.

 

And before everyone thinks it is JUST India! How about the Natural Gas Pipelines than go thru Turkey (coming out of Iran) that supply Europe with 40% of its Natural Gas needs? www.house.gov/jec/studies/rr109-31.pdf

How much International Aid is Poured into Europe?

How many U.S. Dollars have been wasted at the Euro / Dollar Swap Window trying to keep the Europeans from falling off a cliff?

 

The WHOLE WORLD has it hand out to the United States for International Aid and Arms!

The United States is supposed to give up 60% of its Wealth to the World so that the World will Not be as Poor as before! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOwZwkhFemQ

 

“We the People” are used as Congress and the Senates Back Stop for ALL of the Credit Extended to Wall Street!

 

Why is America filled with Stupid / Blind People? Is it the Fluoride(s) in the Water?

 

The market crash! Of 25% while the economist(s) reflect on whether or not now is an appropriate time for QE – 3 at Jackson Hole!

Tyler:

Ransquawk always prompts me to install an ActiveX component, even when just titles on your home page.  Pain in the ass.

Also, I suggest cache control in your head html:
