Everyone knew an attack of some sort was coming somewhere, but nobody could conceive an attack at that scale could occur at Pearl Harbor. The army commander was worried about saboteurs and moved the planes to the center of the airfield unknowingly making them easy targets for Japanese planes.
Funny thing. I was just reading a book on the state of civil defense in Hawaii for the 18 months prior to Pearl.

I didn't realize the civilian population was already getting prepped for a massive influx of injuries.

Coal ash spill Shareholders, protesters, speak out to Duke board

Posted: Thursday, May 1, 2014 8:06 pm

Associated Press |

CHARLOTTE, N.C.- Duke Energy's chief executive on Thursday touted the company's accomplishments over the past year, but some shareholders focused on a massive coal ash spill that coated 70-miles of a North Carolina River in toxic sludge.

Outside Duke's headquarters, where investors gathered for the annual shareholders meeting, about 200 protesters criticized the spill, and the way the $50 billion company has handled the coal ash issue.

Duke has 14-coal fired plants with 33 ash pits spread across the state.

The Rev. William Barber, president of the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP, told the protesters many of the pits are located in rural areas around minority communities.

"Duke is trying to say they have made a mess and now the people have to clean it up. What we're saying is they ought to clean it up," Barber said.

The shareholders meeting came nearly three months after the Feb. 2 spill that polluted the Dan River.

Duke CEO Lynn Good told shareholders that the company had a profitable year, and was working hard to protect the environment. She said Duke had reduced emissions at its coal-fired plants.

She said the company takes responsibility for the spill and "will do the right thing."

"Dan River was an accident," she said.

She also said the company is developing a plan to handle its ash pits.

"The long-term plan will be based on science and fact and engineering. We are committed to getting it right," she said.

Then she took questions from shareholders. Sixteen people spoke before the company cut off questions. Many criticized Duke for the spill, for not cleaning up coal ash pits and for failing to deal with climate change issues.

Kemp Burdette, the Camp Fear Riverkeeper, said he disagreed that Duke had a good year. Besides the coal ash spill, he said the company was accused by the state of pumping 61 million gallons of contaminated water into the Cape Fear River. He said coal ash pollution from the company's Sutton plant near threatened the drinking water of a Wilmington-area community.

Burdette noted that despite the problems, Good was receiving a $1.1 million bonus and a raise. He said her pay should be linked to performance.

Donna Lisenby, global coal campaign coordinator for the Waterkeeper Alliance, said coal ash contains toxic chemicals including arsenic, chromium, selenium, and thallium. Then she invited Good to join her for a canoe trip on the Catawba River for a firsthand look at coal ash pollution. There are coal ash pits along the river - the main source of drinking water for North Carolina's largest city....

Hero dies from knife injuries after fighting off stranger's attacker
Not all heroic deeds have happy endings. Sometimes, they result in tragedy.
Southern California resident Troy Cansler, 47, is no doubt a hero. After witnessing the stabbing of a woman who was holding her toddler in a grocery store parking lot on Sunday evening, Cansler intervened. The attacker ran off with the woman's purse and then stabbed Cansler, who had given chase. Cansler died from his injuries.
The woman, Krystina Hanrahan, is now recovering at home. She was stabbed five times, twice in the arm and three times in the chest. The child was apparently unhurt.
Undoubtedly
Another case for banning handguns(sarcasm).

You can't make this sh*t up!

Obama's NSC spokesman says "Dude, I can't remember, that was two years ago!"

Democrats are low.

"In a must-watch exchange, former NSC Spokesman Tommy Vietor discussed the Benghazi terror attack of 2012 with FOX News Chief Political Anchor Bret Baier.

Baier asked about President Barack Obama's whereabouts the night of the attack, as well as whether Vietor had a hand in allegedly changing the White House's messaging directives following the tragedy.

"Did you change 'attacks' to 'demonstrations' in the talking points?" Baier pressed.

"Maybe, I don't remember," Vietor responded, "Dude, this was two years ago!" he said incredulously.

"Dude, it's the thing everyone's talking about," Baier said.

Vietor insisted that the email sparking recent news, sent by Obama adviser Ben Rhodes, spelled out "nothing new".

He also admitted that the president was not in the situation room on the night of the attack, saying only that the president was "in the White House"

The majority of the homeless reside in the bigger cities. There's at least a half dozen free clinics right here in Orlando.
If the democrats had concentrated more on lowering the costs of health care and compromised with republicans on solutions that were better than what we have now - which is a lawyer's smorgasbord and a tax nightmare - it would have been a lot cheaper just to treat the poor in ERs and free clinics at the taxpayer's expense. We were doing that anyway.
Obamacare is just making more people homeless.

What the government gives, the government can also take away.
Single payer only works as long as the government doesn't run out of other people's money.
A substandard health care system is always the result of single payer for those who aren't young and usually healthy.
Otherwise, in a perfect world, it would be the perfect solution.
You're pulling stuff directly from your anal orifice again Carol. There is no evidence that a universal single payer system provides substandard care.
The French health care system is one of universal health care largely financed by government national health insurance. In its 2000 assessment of world health care systems, the World Health Organization found that France provided the "close to best overall health care" in the world.
Health care in Canada is delivered through a publicly funded health care system, which is mostly free at the point of use and has most services provided by private entities. It is guided by the provisions of the Canada Health Act of 1984. The government assures the quality of care through federal standards. The government does not participate in day-to-day care or collect any information about an individual's health, which remains confidential between a person and his or her physician. Canada's provincially based Medicare systems are cost-effective partly because of their administrative simplicity. In each province each doctor handles the insurance claim against the provincial insurer. There is no need for the person who accesses health care to be involved in billing and reclaim.
In both these cases and in other countries with similar systems there's a higher life expectancy and lower infant mortality than in the US. and contrary to the lies right wingers like you keep putting out, those who need life saving treatment are not put on waiting lists nor is there any rationing of care. In this country we spend far more money on healthcare and get less for it than in any other major industrialized nation.
