Global weather patterns seem to get stranger and stranger with each passing year. Almost every day now, the news is telling us about some bizarre weather event that hasn’t happened “in 100 years” going on in some area of the globe. All over the planet, we are seeing torrential rainfalls, unprecedented flooding, extreme drought, nightmarish wildfires, record setting tornadoes and very unusual blizzards. Record high temperatures and record low [...]

Memorial Day 2013
….while we live in the present, we must be reminded of those that came before and those that will follow.
In his Memorial Day speech at Harvard in 1895, Holmes concluded his remarks with the thought that part of the
soldier’s faith is, having known great things, to be content with silence. He then quoted lines sung by a warlike people
along the Danube:
For the spring has come and the earth [...]
Since Memorial Day is typically deemed as the unofficial start to summer, many people of the Northeast may find it hard to believe that frost and freezing temperatures are a concern tonight.
The same unseasonably cold air that led to substantial snow in the northern New England mountains will make for a chilly night through the Northeast tonight.
West of I-95 (and west of I-81 from southern Pennsylvania to northern Virginia), temperatures [...]

BEVERLY (CBS) – This Sunday, the streets of Beverly will look just like they always do. And that’s the problem, some veterans say. The city has cancelled its annual Memorial Day parade for what’s believed to be the first time since the end of the Civil War.
Many veterans who were gathered at the Herman A. Spear American Legion Post on Friday night are upset by the decision.

As Americans prepare for Memorial Day—the official kickoff to a summer grilling season of burgers and T-bones—rising beef prices have some consumers balking in the grocery aisles.
Retail beef prices are widely expected to set new records in coming weeks after wholesale prices, or the amount meatpackers charge sellers for beef, hit an all-time peak this past week.
After achieving new highs for three weeks, choice-grade beef, the most common variety in [...]

Stocks hit a new high in the Dow yesterday. CNBC cheered and Fed economists everywhere patted each other on the back.
The unfortunate reality for this “success” is that it only works in nominal terms. A DOW at 14,296 vs. a DOW at 13,000 only means something if the rise in price occurs against low inflation. If inflation was 10% during the time period that this rise occurred, then [...]

Obama on Memorial Day 2012
The following was from a veteran who was at the Vietnam Memorial yesterday:
I am currently in Washington DC and witnessed the following. I saw this first hand and I bet you won’t hear about this from the Liberal media…
Vietnam veterans and the families of Vietnam veterans killed in action whose names are etched on the Wall were denied access to their memorial today, of [...]
A shocking discovery at a Florida cemetery has sparked outrage and may lead to a new bill.
Less than a week after the nation honoured war veterans in Memorial Day celebrations the remains of one war hero have been found crammed inside a cardboard box, buried in a shallow grave.

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — A newly discovered small asteroid has harmlessly zipped close to Earth – just as scientists expected.
The 16-foot-long space rock, discovered on Memorial Day, passed by early Tuesday at a distance of 8,950 miles from the Earth’s surface.
The day before Memorial Day, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan lamented that Mexico had lost territory to America due to the Mexican-American War and disparaged American military action around the globe.

U.S.A. 2012: Is This What We’ve Become?
Incentivize victimhood, fraudulent accounting of income/collateral and gaming the system, and guess what you get? A nation of liars and thieves.
Memorial Day is traditionally a day to speak of sacrifices made in combat. Like much of the rest of life in America, it has largely become artificial, a hurried “celebration” of frenzied Memorial Day marketing that is quickly [...]

NEW YORK (AP) — More Americans will hit the road this holiday weekend than a year ago. And they’ll have a bit more money to spend thanks to lower gas prices.
Memorial Day kicks off the summer travel season, and since pump prices never reached $4 or $5 a gallon, as feared, economists says travelers are likely to dine out or shop more once they pull off the road.
About 30.7 million [...]
Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines deja vu as “a feeling that one has seen or heard something before.”
Exhibit A: May 2012 in the western Atlantic Ocean.
Just last weekend we saw our first named storm of the season, Alberto, form near the Southeast coast, taking a strange, c-shaped track, wrapping some light rainbands into parts of the coast from far northeast Florida to the Carolinas.
Now, just in time for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, an [...]

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -
A reported arrest quota for Memorial Day weekend is causing anger and concern among community activists and union officers in Miami Beach.
Rumors of the quota, which allegedly calls for 2,000 people to be arrested over the holiday weekend, first came to light in an email complaint from the officers’ union. In that email, the union called the quota “aggressive, patently unfair, and unjust.”
Police Chief Raymond Martinez has [...]
