Thomko Petro on Satellite shoot down, possible military reasons
Chris Hedges reports on the John McCain petition signatures for the Indiana GOP Primary, I guess there was a suggestion by Democrats that McCain fell a few signatures short. GOP officials say this is hogwash.
Daltonsbriefs (yeah me) I reported on my international blog the unfolding story last night of Serbian thugs attacking the American embassy in Serbia, this in retaliation for the United States recognizing the independance of Kosovo, formely a Serbian province.

Security advisers to the President have warned that if the satellite is
allowed to re-enter the earth's atmosphere, it could lead to loss of life. I'll
admit I'm concerned about where the debris may fall, and possible loss of life
or property by shooting down the satellite. The satellite has hazardous fuel
onboard, so there is also a environmental concern. If the "missile hit" on the
satellite fails, then what?
The U.S. has not conducted this type of operation since the 1980's.
NASA states that if a first shot misses, it will continue to circle the earth
long enough to allow a second or even a third try - "scary"
The links and thoughts therein suggest something possibly sinister? Are we testing a military system that can shoot down satellites? Are we using this as a cover up because what's up there could be a problem? Or, are we ahead of China and Russia and they are just throwing fits because once America is showing them up?

Highlights from the Chesterton Tribune
Low SAT scores are not a recent phenomenon.;) (Blue County in a Red State)
1897: Egged on by an amateur mathematician, the Indiana General Assembly almost passes a bill adopting 3.2 as the exact value of pi (or π). Only the intervention of a Purdue University mathematician who happens to be visiting the legislature prevents the bill from becoming law, saving the most acute political embarrassment.
Buzz also weighs in with news that the Mayor of Gary and Hammond are trying to get some pork for themselves from the South Shore extension. Nice try guys, but we've already shown we don't need your votes, thanks for nothing.
From Chris Hedges on Declinism
Bruno Behrend has a rebuttal to those who say America’s great days are over.
Rumors and predictions of our death are greatly exaggerated. This is not to say we can coast. That is never an option. Just do your part to make the world a better place.
From Daltons Briefs on Kosovo and Independance
Publius Pundit follows a train of thought suggesting that Russia is the world bad boy. Can't keep their hands out of things they don't understand. Still using their energy resources to try and buy influence in small countries. Time for Russia to give up on stealing independance from Kosovo and walk away from the Serbia they screwed up in the first place.
From Thomko Petro Chemical Blog
January's payrolls decline underscores a troubling trend—the U.S. economy's ability to generate new jobs is fading fastLike lava flowing from a volcano, creative destruction—the economic notion that old companies and industries have to be wiped out before new ones can be born, first popularized by economist Joseph Schumpeter—is scary but beautiful.
