Oh, and let's not forget, during the Clinton administration, it was ISRAEL that was found to be selling hi-tech military equipment to China. "Including military technology developed by the US, and which Washington expressly forbids from being exported to China." "Seriously undermining US efforts to limit the sale of advanced weapons to the Chinese."


"Those sold by Israel are said by specialists to include technology for the Python - the Israeli version of the US Sparrow air-to-air missile - and technology developed for the US-financed Lavi jet, which the Israelis cancelled some years ago."

"The US is also concerned that Israel may have passed on technology for the Arrow anti-missile missile, a joint US-Israel project, which is based on the Patriot missile used in the Gulf war."

"James Woolsey, the director of the CIA, told the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs:'Peking probably hopes to tap Israeli expertise for co-operative development of military technologies - such as advanced tank power plants and airborne radar systems - that the Chinese would have difficulty in producing on their own.' He said the Chinese wanted to interest the Israelis in using Chinese facilities for launching satellites."

Hmmm...seems it was Isreal that was behind the Clinton China Satellite Waiver. Why am I not surprised.

You people are dumber than sh*t.

Neither one of you geniuses seem to realize that partial birth abortion occurs prior to infant being completely born outside of the womb.

Perhaps you should do a little reading to know the real deal. Here look it up if you can.

Bush's Speech Before The Joint Session Of Congress After 9/11

"It may include dramatic strikes, visible on TV, and covert operations, secret even in success. We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against each other, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime"

Now libtards quit flapping your gums!!!!!

"The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau – which oversees regulations for mortgages and other credit products – and a major bank regulator will be closely watching the highest court in the land this fall.

Richard Cordray

That’s because the Supreme Court on Monday decided to hear a case about whether the White House violated the constitution and did not have the power to make certain recess appointments last year to fill vacancies to the National Labor Relations Board.

The highest court’s decision on the case will also impact the appointment of Richard Cordray, who directs the recently formed CFPB, since he was installed at the bureau is the same controversial way as the NLRB nominees were approved for the labor board. All this means the consumer bureau’s existing rules for mortgages and future rules could be in trouble."

Doesn't really work the way you're thinking, generated electricity goes onto the grid for distribution.
No this wasn't planned for but was accounted for in design. Problem was the earthquake was beyond the design basis by a factor of around 10 (that's 10 times more powerful than the plant was designed to withstand) and the tsunami was 3-4 meters above design basis. You can't base designs on theoretical worst-case-in-history events.
Gee. Every time I have been in a power plant I thought the lights in the conference room were fed directly from the generator.

Every engineered facility, power plant or otherwise, has a design basis. Sometimes that basis may be exceeded. As we learned (or have failed to learn) from Katrina.

You seem to forget that we went through the same thing in October and the market went back up again.
There's some concerns over China which we don't have any control over and the Fed is hinting that they may cut back on bond buying in anticipation of continued economic recovery. There's also the normal profit taking that occurs when the market hits highs.

Agency Busy Spying on Three Hundred Million People Failed to Notice One Dude Working for It

Posted by Andy Borowitz

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—A U.S. intelligence agency was so busy spying on three hundred million Americans that it failed to notice one dude who was working for it, a spokesman for the agency acknowledged today.

“I guess we were so busy monitoring the everyday communications of every man, woman, and child in the nation that we didn’t notice that a contractor working for us was downloading tons of classified documents,” the agency spokesman said.“It’s definitely embarrassing, for sure.”

Despite having an annual budget in the neighborhood of ten billion dollars, the agency had no idea that a dude who was working for it five days a week was getting ready to send those classified documents to a journalist who would then tell everybody in the world.

“Maybe if we hadn’t been so busy keeping our eye on those other three hundred million people, we would have noticed that this one guy who was working right under our noses was up to something totally fishy,” the spokesman said.“But you know what they say about hindsight.”

As for where that guy who leaked the documents was planning to go next, the spokesman admitted,“We don’t have a clue.”

“I know what you’re thinking—an intelligence agency probably should know that Hong Kong has an international airport and that its departures board lists flights to Moscow and whatnot,” the spokesman said.“I don’t know what to say. Maybe we need a bigger budget or something.”
