    The USGS is acting out again with the slow,or no, reporting of Japanese earthquakes. Please let them know that you are paying attention to their poor earthquake updating processes. I like to let them know that I am saving their responses should I need them for future legal actions 🙂

    We don't need no stinkin' tsunami warning!

      Thanks for the article.

      The logic here is simple: The Fed wasted over ONE TRILLION dollars on the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq (and those are just conflicts the public is TOLD about), while greatly reducing funds for public assistance programs and the like (one in THREE Americans are on public assistance), and this article you just linked to is showing that they want to reduce funding for technologies and programs that will save lives… what this tells me is we live in a society that's run by people who value profit over life – war & death are BIG BUSINESS after all, perhaps the biggest business on earth. That explains a lot.

      Here's to not becoming a casualty of the animals running this house of cards.
