Powerful snowstorm bears down
on western United States

The leading edge of a large, powerful winter storm descended on the western United States on Wednesday, dropping snow as far south as Tucson, Arizona, and snarling evening rush-hour traffic in Denver. Snowfall sweeping the southeastern corner of Arizona blanketed the saguaro cactus-studded high desert with several inches of white stuff, leading the Professional Golfers´ Association to cancel play at a tournament near Tucson. "I don´t think I have (ever seen anything like this), to be honest," competitor Ian Poulter

Now it´s our turn. East Coasters shouldn´t feel like they get all the storms. Even LA is bitterly cold. The Grapevine (the lone highway connecting So Cal to the Central Valley through the mountains) had to be shut down yesterday due to ice.

Since when is 12 inches of snow a "huge" amount. It will snow that much in 30 minutes in the Sierras.

It´s a huge amount of snow if you´re not used to dealing with a foot of snow. A foot of it is an inconvenience to me in NE, but it can be disastrous for people whose roads, buildings, and other infrastructures aren´t constructed to handle it.

Stay safe, those of you affected. Keep off those icy roads unless necessary.

It has stopped now, but since last night we have had thunder, lightning, rain, snow and sleet. ...The Ozarks have seen it a lot worse before this current storm and temps are suppose to warm up soon, but it is still winter.

I guess Reuters changed the story. Instead of it being about the West from CA to CO and AZ, it´s all about the Plain´s states.

Ah well.

A police officer who dropped off his daughter at her Phoenix elementary school was asked by the school’s principal not to wear his uniform to the school because other parents were concerned that he was carrying a gun.. Scott Urkov is a police officer for the Coolidge Police Department. . Nothing like your kids school calling and asking if I could not come to pick up my daughter in uniform cause parents were concerned when their kids came home telling there was a man at school with a gun.. Are you freaking kidding me?

House subpoenas Treasury Secretary
Jacob Lew for IRS documents
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: fca- 8/2/2013 3:23:37 PM     Post Reply
House Republicans on Friday accused Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew of obstructing their investigation into the IRS’s targeting of tea party and conservative groups, and issued subpoenas for more agency documents. Oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa sent a scathing latter to Lew blasting him and Obama for dismissing the GOP’s claims about IRS targeting as a phony scandal, saying that Lew has attempted to thwart his investigation. (Snip) The IRS came under scrutiny when its auditor reported earlier this year that the agency had singled out groups with “tea party,” “patriot” or “9/12” in their names for special scrutiny when the groups applied for tax-exempt status. The IRS has acknowledged it asked inappropriate and intrusive questions of the conservative groups.

Emergency manager: Detroit defaulting
on $2.5B in debt; seeks debt forgiveness
AP - abc 15, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: fca- 6/14/2013 6:36:41 PM     Post Reply
A team led by a state-appointed emergency manager said Friday that Detroit is defaulting on about $2.5 billion in unsecured debt and is asking creditors to take about 10 cents on the dollar of what the city owes them. Kevyn Orr spent two hours with about 180 bond insurers, pension trustees, union representatives and other creditors in a move to avoid what bankruptcy experts have said would be the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. Underfunded pension claims likely would get less than the 10 cents on the dollar.

Islamizing the Public Schools

The Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is pressuring public schools in this country to make special accommodations for Muslim students and to deny comparable accommodations for students of other faiths. For example, CAIR’s instructional material for teachers entitled “An Educator’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices” advises schools to permit Muslim students who wish to attend Friday congregational worship (known as Jum’ah) to “request a temporary release from school.” In California, the Islamists have already won in their efforts to get special treatment for Islam in the public schools.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer pushes
through Obama´s Medicaid expansion

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer won a battle with state lawmakers this week, defying most other conservatives in her party to get a key component of President Obama’s Medicaid expansion through the Legislature. The Arizona Senate voted Thursday to approve the measure 18 to 11. That followed approval earlier this week by the state House of Representatives. The issue had inflamed passions and divided the Legislature for weeks. Things came to a head Tuesday when Brewer called lawmakers into the Capitol in Phoenix for a surprise special session.

3 feet of snow in upstate NY
on Memorial weekend

A Memorial Day weekend storm has dropped three feet of snow on a New York ski mountain near the Vermont boarder. Whiteface Mountain spokesman Jon Lundin says 36 inches of white powder has blanketed the nearly 5,000-foot tall mountain in the Adirondacks. That has forced the Olympic Regional Development Authority to close Whiteface Veteran´s Memorial Highway on the backside of the mountain.

Tax Audits Are

Barack Obama owes his presidency in no small part to the power of rhetoric. It´s too bad he doesn´t appreciate the damage that loose talk can do to America´s tax system, even as exploding federal deficits make revenues more important than ever. At his Arizona State University commencement speech last Wednesday, Obama noted that ASU had refused to grant him an honorary degree, citing his lack of experience .. He then demonstrated ASU´s point by remarking, " President [Michael] Crowe and the Board of Regents will soon learn all about being audited by the IRS."

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
