CREDIT CARD ALERT: UPS STORE

Well the hackers have done it again! They have attached the UPS stores now.

If you have used a credit card to pay for shipping a package in any of the following states through the UPS stores, I would be checking your statements thoroughly ...

California, Nevada, Arizona, Washington State, Indiana, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Illinois, Tennessee, Ohio, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey

Over 100,000 names, numbers, pin codes, addresses are being taken from credit cards and debit card information used at those locations.

UPS says that the problem has now been corrected, but they cannot say where other information went.

§§§§§§§

I'm sorry but this is getting really ridiculous!

Do people not have enough time on their hands -- or too much time on their hands perhaps!

They should force computer hackers to learn to knit and crochet, possibly even tap, so that their hands are too tied up to mess with computer keys ... And besides that there's nothing more frustrating than dropping a stitch and having to take out seven rows to fix it.

Come on – get a life people!

<blockquote>" ... And I'm just saying, you know, if I were Osama bin Laden - he's a very smart guy - I've spent a lot of time thinking about him - and I nearly got him once.  I nearly got him.  And I could have gotten, I could have killed him., but I would have had to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and  300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him.  And so I didn't do it."
Bill Clinton

While hindsight is 20/20 .... This was the same guy behind the bombing of the USS Cole and the car bombing of the WTC in the 90s ... AND just like Obama, he had Special Forces at his command - there could have been a targeted attack ....

Why, oh why, couldn't you have taken him out?.?

Is this a ground breaker? No ... Every president has moments that they think woulda-coulda-shoulda ... 

Sorry .... Just cannot attack him for this ... But it would have been nice if he had gotten a hold of Bin Laden a little early ...

But I am wondering what would have happened if he had ... I think 9/11 may have still happened  ... Just the date & targets being changed .

<blockquote> "The truth is that the treat we face is not an abstract concern for the future.it is already upon us and its effects are being felt worldwide, right now.  Scientists project that the article will be ice-free in the summer of 2013, not in 2050, but four years from now"

And people wanted <i>him</i> as President?? 

Ice in the article region still existed in 2013 ... In fact there was MORE there than in 2012!

OOOOORRRRRRRR ....it could be ...

NATURAL for the Earth to cycle through changes in weather, cold times, warm times -- something more than just the changing of seasons 

Read some history ... You might be surprised at how many times the weather has shifted through out time.  

Is pollution an issue? Yes ... BUT - and it's a big but - the MAJORITY OF IT - say 95% - is coming from OTHER COUNTRIES, not the USA ...

Countries sch as
China
India
Japan
Iran
Russia
Africa, various countries there
Pakistan
Etc, etc etc 

The ONLY continent we can say does NOT cause pollution is Antartica ... But even that will change as more and more people go there ... Other than from the USA, since we are afraid to even wipe our butts after BMimg these days ...

<blockquote>"Rarely has a U.S. President been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.  Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is "ending" the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan - as though wishing made it so.  His rhetoric has now come crossing into reality.  Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territories once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that Americas enemies are not "decimated".  They are emboldened and on the march." 
Op-Ed
Wall Street Journal
Dick Cheney, Fmr. vice-President, United States of America

Yup ... Bush is being VERY polite and not saying a word against the current President while he's still in office ... Not even during the 6 years of "It's Bush's Fault" coming from the White House, he still will be the bigger man and say NOTHING.

He is a bigger man than Jimmy Carter ... A bigger man than Bill Clinton!

The job of the Vice-President, the VP candidate, the FORMER VP is to do the critiquing, the criticizing ... So whatever else you might think of the former President and Vice-President, you have to admit -- they are a CLASS ACT!

When things went wrong in New Orleans after Katrina, did Bush sit there and go "well the FEMA chief is going to fix this so m not going to accept his resignation" or "well the issues aren't really at the top, so we will have to figure out who's really at fault here" or even "it's Clinton's fault"????

No ... FEMA chief got CANNED/RESIGNED ... Sure things weren't great, but at least he TRIED to make it right ... It wasn't his fault that there were so many questionable people down there ... It wasn't his fault that the MAYOR (D) of New Orleans said they had nothing to worry about ... It wasn't his fault tht the FLOODS which is actually what did the damage caused the levies to break through - that was an engineering error that was "standard" for the time ...

You've got to watch Emgineering Disasters on the History Channel to understand this, I guess.

Any how ... I've also seen quotes being attributed to Cheney that I simply did not see being presented in this quote ...

I do not see Cheney actually saying "Obama is ushering US advisories into power" .... Nor do I see where he said "only a fool would cede US policy in Iraq to Iran"

Perhaps it's in part I did not see on tv ... I do not get the Wall Street Journal myself - so I admit that there is likely lots more which was printed that simply did not make it to the airwaves.

Still ...CLASS ACT!!! 

I'm guessing, we won't be seeing this from the Obama administration when they leave office unless a democrat gets in there ... But a republican?  I expect a lot of mud slinging going on from the Left.

Bad Dog!

We had to put our dog down last year because she was getting too overly protective ... She began to charge at people who she didn't know very well -- a very bad trait in Newfs ... Only one way to see what was going on and that meant putting her down.  Brain exam showed no rabies ... So I supposed that was good, but really sad.

Any how -- this leads to the release of a new report by the Post Office workers Union about the top "25" cities for bites ... But it's really disceptice because there lots of ties between cities but they counted them as just one city ... In reality there are <b><u><i> 38 cities listed:</b></u></i>

1. Houston (63)

2. Los Angeles (61)

3. Cleveland (58)

4. San Diego (53)

5. Chicago (47)

6. Baltimore (46)

7. Dallas (45)

8. Denver (41)

9. Columbus (39)

10. Kansas City (33)

11. Minneapolis and Phoenix (32)  {numbers 11&12}

12. Portland (31)

13. Sacramento (30)

14. Indianapolis (29)

15. Philadelphia, Seattle, St. Louis (28) {#16 - 18}

16. Cincinnati, Fort Worth, San Jose (26) {#19 - 21}

17. Charlotte (25)

18. Miami (23)

19. Fresno, Long Beach, Oakland, San Antonio, Wichita (22) {#24 - 28}

20. Detroit (21)

21. Jacksonville, Oklahoma City, San Francisco, Tulsa (20) {#30 - 33}

22. Memphis (19)

23. Brooklyn, Rochester (18) {#35 & 36}

24. Washington D.C. (17)

25. Pittsburgh (16)

You'll notice that these are all larger cities ... I'm wondering if they went by the first three digits of the zip codes to make these cities.

This would skew the results .

For instance: 554xx is considered Minneapolis or a Minneapolis suburb ... 

This includes such mini-cities as Columbia Heights, Fridley, Bloomington, etc

St. Paul has 551xx ... This also includes the surrounding cities of South St. Paul. north St. Paul, Mendota Heights, Eagan, Inver Hills, West St. Paul, Sunfish Lake, Lilydale, Etc.

These are not neighborhoods, these are actual state recognized names of cities ... and most people don't even realize how bad it is ...

Until you move into a small town like we did and find there are several other towns in you zip code prefix that have the same name as your street.  That was fun to learn that there's a third city with our address ... Thank you DHL for the miss delivery.

Anyhow --

I'm wondering if that could acct for so many ties in this listing.

But I'm wondering what idiot called it a Top 25 CITY list, when it's really a Top 38 city list???

Oh wait ...

It's a federal job ... No one seems to know what they're doing there.

The Numbers Game ... That is what Washington DC plays when it wants to put itself into the best light ...

Take for instance the new Unemployment number

<b> 6.3% </b>
Down from 6.7%

Added 288,000 jobs in April

But HOW did the number go down? That's the big question ... 

This is what you are NOT being told;

806,00p people who STOPPED looking for work
62.8% labor force participation
Down 0.4%

This means:
NOT EVEN <u><b>2/3 of QUALIFIED labor is looking for work </u><b/>

Raigsing minimum wage will NOT fix this ...

Long Term Unemployed (people out of work over 6 month) went down to 2787,000
 " " ___" " ____" "  " ____ fell by 908,000 compared to one year ago
BUT still <u><b> 8.5 MILLION people </b> </u> People are LONG TERM Unemployed!!!

By group:
Adult Men 5.9%
Adult Women 5.7%
Teenagers 19%

Whites 5.3%
Hispanics 7.3%
Blacks 11.6%

They keep playing with these numbers ... But really anything they do will more than likely increase UNION jobs, not jobs anyone could do ...

Even if the Pipeline goes in, that will benefit UNION workers the most ...

Wow
