Morning Reads for Monday, January 28, 2019

If you haven’t seen the news, it’s *supposed* to maybe, possibly, probably not snow tomorrow. So, your duty as a Georgian is to rush out at some point today and get your milk and bread. Don’t fail us. Y’all empty those grocery shelves.

Finding an earth rock on the moon is not that unusual we have found Moon rocks on earth and even Mars rocks on Earth. Due to the violent nature of universe and planet collisions during the formation of our solar system rocks from all the planets are likely scatted everywhere. Below is a link about Mars rocks found on earth. One of my favorite quotes from Neil DeGrasse Tyson is “When I look at the universe and all the ways the universe wants to kill us.” He made the statement while talking about religion but you get the point. Per… Read more »

Notice from APD: Notification of DOE/NNSA low-altitude helicopter flying on Jan. 28, 29, and Feb. 3 Hello Nextdoor Neighbors, Please do not become alarmed by low flying helicopters over the Downtown Atlanta and Buckhead areas on January 28, 29, and February 3. The Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration will conduct low-altitude helicopter flights as part of security operations for Super Bowl LIII and will measure naturally occurring background radiation. Atlanta residents and visitors may see a twin-engine Bell 412 helicopter, which is equipped with radiation-sensing technology and is operated by NNSA’s Remote Sensing Laboratory Aerial Measuring System at… Read more »

Is the purpose of this kind of operation to detect dirty bombs?

That would be my guess.
Either that or they suspect Brady’s got some new trick up his sleeve.

Standard for any thing classified as a National Security Event; like Superbowls, Worlds Series, UN week, State of the Union, Opening and classing races of NCCAR, NCAA play offs, The Masters, Indy 500. RNC & DNC weeks, ect.If it’s a high profile event or has major political implications, its a NSE. The look for anything that would have a radiation signature really. Some poisons carry signatures. Example, the poisons the old USSR developed are made from the same elements found in X-ray machines and some photo processing equipment, Radiation treatment areas have multiple signatures. Pre-mapping where known signatures are can… Read more »

Just watched their aircraft do its grid of low-level (below height of cranes working on Ga Aquarium) passes over downtown/midtown and wondering if there’s still any residual radiation detectable at the site of the reactor that was decommissioned and removed from the Tech campus over 20 years ago. 🙂

It could be Jade Helm 16. Or maybe the implementation of Agenda 21.

Are they using black helicopters? PSA: Use lead foil for your hat. Much more effective than aluminum.

Great the government is open again. Physical border barriers aren’t immoral, though the some of the attitude Republicans appeal to and encourage with their wall talk is. I’m not opposed to additional funding for physical barriers. Democrats have supported funding for barriers in the past. It’s a different day and new rules at the behest of Republicans. Any additional money for new barriers should be contingent on permanent amnesty for DACA recipients and TPS protection. It’s long established practice that every effort should be made to not reward hostage-taking. Attacking DACA, then offering a temporary reprieve in order to fund… Read more »

I remember when it was only $19 trillion and candidate Trump promised not just to eliminate the deficit, but also to eliminate the entire national debt in 8 years. I’m not an economist but the tax cuts don’t seem to be making that happen.

April 2, 2016

Donald Trump: “We’ve got to get rid of the $19 trillion in debt.”
Bob Woodward: “How long would that take?”
Trump: “I think I could do it fairly quickly, because of the fact the numbers…”
Woodward: “What’s fairly quickly?”
Trump: “Well, I would say over a period of eight years…

$19 trillion can’t be eliminated because Pelosi and Schumer won’t agree to cut social security and Medicare and Medicaid, NATO and other allies won’t takeover all military spending outside of the US, Mexico isn’t pay for the wall, and the Chinese aren’t doing want we tell ’em to do.
