Why would anyone be preparing for a Hurricane in Shelbville?

I use to live in Florida 2 miles from the ocean and only prepared for the biggest storms.

I jumped the gun, didn't I? You want people who are from those areas and stuck in Shelbyville. Wonder how many out of staters are going to read this blog?

I will say, "Hurricane Irene has just added several more years to the recovery of the economy." The cost of food mainly will climb higher because of the flooding in the North East, something that hasn't happened for years.

And this cost increase will be felt immediately.

If you haven't started stocking up food yet, it's not too late, because prices will only be going higher in the future.

The economical experts are still saying we will be going into a 2nd recession. People, we are already in a 2nd recession and entering a 3rd recession AND an Inflation period.

If you remember back to last year, I predicted that the first recession would NEVER recover. It hasn't and more Natural disasters are carrying us into a 3rd recession instead.

Now with the new damage to Roads and Bridges in the north east from Hurricane Irene, Congress will have to raise the spending ceiling again to create a stimulus for Roads and Bridges AGAIN!

This in turn will lower the value of the US dollar more and the cost of everything will climb, creating a worse recession than we have now.

People are rushing to the Bank to get their money before the Bank of America fails. Doesn't L@@k good at all.

Looks like you need to put an article about the T-G blog in the T-G newspaper for the NWHC Visitors.

Even FEMA had to relocate one of their centers during Hurricane Irene. Doesn't say much for FEMA when they were given Billions of Dollars to renovate Military Bases into Disaster Relocation Centers.

I haven't heard one word of FEMA using these "Relocation Centers" to help the victims of these Hurricanes and Tornadoes or Floods. Those newly renovated Military Bases must be reserved for Prisons and Concentration Camps as originally reported.

ATTENTION VOTERS!

Obama will be re-elected because the Candidates and Voters aren't watching what king Obama is doing. If everyone will watch closely, you will see king Obama campaigning to the Indians for their votes in the months ahead.

King Obama has the Union Votes, all the Muslim Votes, the Black Votes, the College Votes, the Mexican Votes, the Puerto Rican Votes, and all the idiots who have their head in the sand who don't know what King Obama is Doing!.

Coming Soon! Obama and the Indians at a theatre near you.

Even the Tea Party isn't watching his tactics of getting Votes. King Obama's Disciples are making war with the Tea Party to distract them from the real problem at hand... Getting Votes. I have emailed this warning to the Tea Party.

Anyone who votes for Obama is voting for the Final Destruction of America. Obama didn't do anything to help the Unions when they were being attacked, but now king Obama has convinced Jimmy Hoffa Jr. that he is for the Union. Obama only wants the votes and the Union only wants the President in their back pocket.

Don't lose your Constitutional Right to work without interference from the government nor the state. The Union will take away your right to work unless you join a union that only puts money in their pockets. When you work for the union you not only pay tax on your salary to Uncle Obama, but you are paying another Tax on your salary to Uncle Hoffa Jr.

In reality, you are paying to work. The Constitution says you have a Right to Work and don't have to pay anyone for your job. Even the Employment Agencies don't have a right to charge you for your job.

Wake up People! King Obama is winning! The Polls won't show these voter results until they are cast, AFTER it is too late.

Give it a rest already, or least post only on the relevant blogs. Thank you.
