Let me start by saying: I was NOT in the building where the shooting happened, I was a mile away at home. I'll give you a break down of what I saw, and what I know. At 12:37am I received a Text Alert from FSU, saying: "DANGEROUS SITUATION! Main Campus - Tallahassee. Seek shelter immediately, away from doors and windows." No other information given. Now, we sometimes get those alerts for dangerous weather, but the skies were clear. So I called the FSU PD non-emergency phone number. I asked them what the deal with the alert was, and they told me they cannot comment at all about it, but they checked to ensure I was safe at home. So, I put on warm clothes, and ran the mile down...

Fragile Earth
"California’s Department of Conservation’s Chief Deputy Director, Jason Marshall, told NBC Bay Area, California state officials allowed oil and gas companies to pump up to 3 billion gallons (call it 70 million barrels) of oil fracking-contaminated waste water into formerly clean aquifiers, aquifiers which at least on paper are supposed to be off-limits to that kind of activity, and are protected by the government's EPA - an agency which, it appears, was richly compensated by the same oil and gas companies to look elsewhere."

Looked to see if this had already been brought to the forum, but couldn't find that it had, so I place it here for everyone's edification. Putin made a speech in October just before the G20 meeting in Australia. Having read it, I believe what he says is something everyone needs to at least read, digest,...

I have to say the conversion was extremity interesting, I just asked him one question. And he basically spilled the beans on many covert operations nothing specific, but enough that you could tell he just knew. It was crazy.

This is not good. Regardless of opinions we don't know the true facts but a state of emergency pretty much gives local authorities carte blanche to do whatever they please. I am NOT American but do believe in the right to protest. This will divide people but see it from a long perspective....
