A top pro-Russia rebel commander in eastern Ukraine has given a bizarre version of events surrounding the Malaysian jetliner crash — suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off.
The pro-rebel website Russkaya Vesna on Friday quoted Igor Girkin as saying he was told by people at the crash site that:
“a significant number of the bodies weren’t fresh,” adding that he was told they were drained of blood and reeked of decomposition.

A giant hole and has opened in Siberia, and nobody quite knows why.
The massive hole, which spans about 262 feet in diameter, was spotted recently on the Yamal Peninsula in Russia, commonly known as the “end of the world,” The Siberian Times reported. The depth of the hole is not yet known.
New video footage shows the mysterious hole surrounded by vegetation in a seemingly remote area. The ground on the outskirts of the hole appears to have been displaced, perhaps by whatever caused the hole to form.
Given the crater’s proximity to a natural gas field, one theory is that the hole formed following an explosion, caused by a mixture of gas, salt and water igniting underground.

Tourists at Yellowstone National Park are being BARRED from areas of the park because the massive underground supervolcano beneath it is melting the asphalt roads.
“It basically turned the asphalt into soup. It turned the gravel road into oatmeal,” Yellowstone spokesman Dan Hottle said. In particular, Hottle said that the road between the park’s most popular attraction, Old Faithful, and Madison Junction has been dangerously compromised.
Park officials also asked tourists not to hike into the affected areas, as the danger of stepping through what appears to be solid soil into boiling-hot water was “high.”

Chris Christie: “Obama’s indecisiveness on Hamas is exactly why there’s violence in Israel.”
Reporter: “So what should he do about Hamas?”
(wait for it)
Chris Christie: “I’d rather not say.”
Clearly another, ‘GOP Heavyweight’!

Overall, 73 percent of people who bought health plans and 87 percent of those who signed up for Medicaid said they were somewhat or very satisfied with their new health insurance.
Seventy-four percent of newly insured Republicans liked their plans. Even 77 percent of people who had insurance before — including members of the much-publicized group whose plans got canceled last year — were happy with their new coverage.
The study also found that the percentage of uninsured has dropped, from 20 percent to 15 percent, after the first open enrollment period, with 9.5 million fewer people now uninsured. Latinos, the most likely of any racial group to lack health insurance, are seeing the biggest gains in coverage. “The percent uninsured fell from 36 percent in July–September 2013 to 23 percent in April–June 2014,” Commonwealth reports.
If you don’t want to say it, I understand, so I’ll go ahead and say it for you:
Thank You, MR. PRESIDENT!

In a condemnatory speech last week against the Obama administration’s new Environmental Protection Agency carbon emission regulations, Kentucky state Sen. Brandon Smith (R) (See Photo) claimed that man-made climate change is scientifically implausible because Mars and Earth share “exactly” the same temperature.
Smith, the owner of a mining company called Mohawk Energy, argued that despite the fact that the red planet doesn’t have any coal mines, Mars and Earth share a temperature. Therefore, Smith reasoned, coal companies on Earth should be exempt from emission regulations.
During a Natural Resources and Environment Committee meeting Thursday, Smith, the Senate majority whip, said:
“As you [Energy & Environment Cabinet official] sit there in your chair with your data, we sit up here in ours with our data and our constituents and stuff behind us. I won’t get into the debate about climate change but
I’ll simply point out that I think in academia (University of Kentucky???) we all agree that the temperature on Mars is EXACTLY as it is here.
Nobody will dispute that.
Yet there are no coal mines on Mars.
There’s no factories on Mars that I’m aware of.”
According to NASA, the average temperature on Earth is 57 degrees Fahrenheit — 138 degrees above Mars’ average of -81 degrees.
C’mon, who are you going to believe; a mine owner or, NASA?
45% more, WOW!
I can’t help but wonder if someday, if there will be a migration, a mass migration, of people from the $7.25 ‘minimal wage’ to the ‘livable wage’ states.
Gawd only knows, I would look for a better opportunity!
