3 Upsides to the Government Shutdown

(Yahoo) – So far, the government shutdown has left babies without formula, military families without death benefits, home owners locked out of their properties, investors increasingly worried about a financial meltdown and animal lovers deprived of streaming panda video. In our peculiar, looking-glass economy, however, unhappy developments sometimes generate unexpected benefits. Here are three ways ordinary people stand to gain from the gridlock in Washington:

Ohio school district agrees to keep portrait of Jesus off wall, pay $95G fine

WEB Notes: Christ continues to be removed from our institutions. There is no separation of church and state. The government can simple not mandate a state religion. This is far from doing that.

(Fox) – An Ohio school district has agreed to keep a portrait of Jesus Christ off school property and pay a $95,000 fine in the face of legal pressure from the American Civil Liberties Union.

The Jackson City School District, located in Jackson, reached a deal on Friday after the ACLU, along with the Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation, sued the district in February, citing “unconstitutional” actions and charging that students and visitors to the school “will continue to suffer permanent, severe and irreparable harm and injury,” according to the lawsuit.

Well-armed, predominantly Islamist rebels launch offensive in N. Syria

(World Tribune) – Sunni rebels have launched an offensive in northern Syria. Opposition sources said a coalition of rebel militias have attacked two Syrian military bases near the border with Turkey.

They said the rebels, flush with new weapons, sought to capture the Hamidiya and Wadi Deif military bases in the northwestern province of Idlib.

72-Year Old Woman Shoots Intruder Attacking Her Friend

WEB Notes: This is one of the reasons we have a 2nd Amendment and you need to make sure you voice your support of it. If five men barge into your house and attempt to rap your wife do you want a phone to call the police or a 12 gauge?

(Breitbart) – On October 7, a 72-year old South Carolina woman shot a man after he broke into her home and started beating her friend with a baseball bat.

According to ABC 4 WTAE, 54-year old Richard Keese broke into Francis Ward’s home at 3 PM and began assaulting the women. When Ward’s friend grabbed a baseball bat to defend herself, Keese took it from her and begin beating her with it.

(Haaretz) – Israeli Air Force fighter squadrons have carried out exercises testing their capability to conduct missions at long ranges from base, the Israeli military said Thursday. The drills included air-to-air refueling and dogfights against foreign combat planes.

A report on New Greek TV last Friday, citing the Hellenic Air Force, said the Greek air force took part in the exercises “under a joint military cooperation program.”

“The Death Loss of these Cows in this County is Unbelievable,” Record Storm Slams South Dakota with Snow Killing 75,000 Cattle

(NBC) – An unusually early and enormous snowstorm over the weekend caught South Dakota ranchers and farmers unprepared, killing tens of thousands of cattle and ravaging the state’s $7 billion industry — an industry left without assistance because of the federal government shutdown.
As many as 75,000 cattle have perished since the storm slammed the western part of the state Thursday through Saturday with snowfall that set records for the entire month of October in just three days, state and industry officials said.

Trans-Pacific Partnership Moves Forward Despite Government Shutdown

(Video, Activist Post) – The human race has been waking up to the fact that a great deal of secrecy exists within the government as well as many major multinational corporations. Another astonishing observation is that major events covered by the corporate media in depth seem to coincide with the creation of important bills, legislation and agreements without any attention brought to it by the corporate media.

We saw this recently with the Boston Bombings, which coincided with the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), which coincided with the passing of the bill in the United States House of Representatives during the Boston Bombings ordeal. Fortunately, leaks from Edward Snowden amongst others have shed even more light on this topic for the human race to wake up to. Despite the United States government shutdown, Secretary of State John Kerry headed to Asia for secret talks on the Trans-Pacific Partnership which continues to move forward, and may very well be complete by the end of 2013.

Green light for ISON: Comet blazes in stunning shots

(NBC) – It’s not at all clear whether Comet ISON will become “the comet of the century,” as skywatchers hoped a year ago, but it’s certainly become a beautiful sight for photographers with the right kind of telescope.

Adam Block captured a stunner on Tuesday morning, just before sunrise, using the 0.8-meter Schulman Telescope at the University of Arizona’s SkyCenter atop Mount Lemmon. Block’s picture reveals ISON’s greenish coma, trailed by a long, straight tail. The comet is zooming within the orbit of Mars, heading toward a crucial rendezvous with the sun on Nov. 28.

Reminder – The Million Veteran March For Their Memorials….

October 13th 9:00am Washington DC

(The Last Refuge) – Million Veteran’s March – WEB SITE HERE and Facebook HERE

[…] We do not care what political leanings you may be; be it liberal, conservative, Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Independent or whatever. The actions of the U.S. government this week with regard to barricading and shutting down the World War II Memorial to veterans, that may or may not be on their last trip to Washington DC, is a despicable act of cowardice.

Meltdowns hobble NSA’s massive data center

(Fox) – Chronic electrical surges at the massive new data-storage facility central to the National Security Agency’s spying operation have destroyed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of machinery and delayed the center’s opening for a year, according to project documents and current and former officials.

There have been 10 meltdowns in the past 13 months that have prevented the NSA from using computers at its new Utah data-storage center, slated to be the spy agency’s largest, according to project documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

Knock, Knock: Will You Open Your Door When Obamacare Agents Show Up?

(Activist Post) – In addition to the negative impact Obamacare will deliver to our national economy and personal financial well being, one terrifying yet little discussed set of provisions within the Affordable Care Act authorizes agents of the government health care apparatus to visit your home, enter it without probable cause, and seize your children should they deem your household to be operating counter to the wishes of the state.

You’re probably thinking that there is no way this can happen. The government would never override parental rights and take control of their children. But this is exactly what is already happening, even before Obamacare has been full implemented, as evidenced by a recent court ruling giving the State control over the medical treatment of an Amish child whose parents refused Chemo therapy.
