Americans Need To Take A Lesson From Fire Ants Building a Raft To Survive Flood (Cool Video)

This video clip is from a BBC documentary about fire ants. These ants build a raft out of worker ants in an attempt to save the Queen and the colony during a flood. There amazing instinct to survive show you why they are probably the most dominant life form on earth, withstanding almost any curve ball nature throws at them.  Makes you think about the way the capitalist spirit has allowed America to become the most prosperous and successful society the world has ever seen. Throughout our history, we have withstood every curve ball our enemies thrown at us, in their attempts to bring us down.  We are one of the youngest nations in the world, yet we are economically the most prosperous and the militarily the mightiest.  As America goes, so too does the free world.

Unfortunately, we failed to stop the left from destroying that spirit. Now we are on the brink of becoming just another former great country as the socialists and fascists do all they can to destroy the capitalist nature of this once great country.  We can sit back and allow Obama and his Fascist friends destroy that which our ancestors worked and died for, or can take a lesson from the fire ants and refuse to go down without a fight.  The choice is ours, and regardless of which way we choose, our descendants will look back at these days and know the time to act was now.  I pray they will be able to look back and be as proud of us, as we are of our ancestors who went to battle and defeated America's enemies of the last few centuries. 

Bird Swarm Over Sacramento California

This is a video of a half a million birds swarming over Sacramento California. I just want to know who estimated that there is a half a million. Are they sure there are not a million, or maybe only 100,000 instead? Well either way it is pretty cool, and reminds me of the movie by Alfred Hitchcock, "The Birds".

These following two paragraphs are from an article at "The Independent", and it is about the phenomenon called a murmuration;
Winter must must be coming... because the starlings are flocking. Here are many thousands of the birds wheeling together in the afternoon sky near Gretna Green yesterday, as they prepare to roost together for the night.

A starling flock like this is called a murmuration, a word that perfectly describes the rustle of thousands of pairs of wings. Starling murmurations are one of the most dazzling displays in the natural world, as the flock changes shape, one minute like a colossal wisp of smoke, the next a tornado, the next a thundercloud blocking the light.

The huge gatherings, biggest in winter, are boosted by thousands of birds that come to Britain's milder Atlantic climate to escape the harsh cold of the European continent, especially in Scandinavia. There are several reasons to get together in the way they do – safety in numbers, information exchange (if some come back from a good feeding area others may learn of it) and warmth at night through roosting together. The birds may feed up to 20 miles from their winter roost but return each evening.

Special thanks to Dinah Lord of Freerepublic for the link to the story on murmuration.

The Hapless Redskins & Their Attempt at a Fake Field Goal

Like the play where Jim Marshall ran the wrong way for a touchdown, the Redskins will want to forget this trick play they attempted instead of kicking a last second field goal at the end of the first half of the MNF game against the New York Giants. Well, not only was the trick play botched, but as the play progressed it looked like it was a bunch of Pee-Wee Football kids running around the first for the first time. The Redskins fake field goal trick play almost ended up in a 95 yard interception return for a touchdown by the Giants. Along with their season, the Redskins will want to forget this play, but it seems unlikely they will ever be allowed to forget it. It is destined to go down in NFL history as one of those stupid things you just want to forget.

With the New York Giants leading the Washington Redskins 24-0 in the first half, the Redskins were able to drive the ball a bit on a great play by Santana Moss. With the second ticking down on the first half, the Redskins set up for a field goal that would at least put them on the board before halftime. Coming out to the field was the kicking team, and in an audible at the line, the play-caller (in this case the punter) shifted the line to the left side of the field. When I say left side of the field, I mean the center, a lineman and the kicker were the only ones left around the punter near the center of the field. In order to prepare for the play, the New York Giants simply called time-out on defense.

Instead of kicking the field goal after the time out was over, they again changed their offensive line set up and still tried the trick play. Well, enjoy the video and see for yourself what a fool the redskin coaching staff must truly feel like.

Airhead Reporter Does Unsafe Gun Safety Report

This is a video that helps explain the mentality of news reporters. Check out this airhead news reporter doing a report on gun safety. The woman reporter in this video keeps pointing the loaded gun at the cameraman.  Even after she fired a round down range at a target she looks at the camera and non nonchalantly shakes the gun with the barrel pointed towards the cameraman.  Honestly, you cannot make this stuff up.  

Then, as if that part of the video is not bad enough, notice how the cameraman never seems to realize that his life is in danger.  If I were the cameraman the only thing you would seeing is the ground and the sky as I drop the camera to high tailed it away from this airhead.

 After watching this video, all I could think about is all the gun laws we have. In reality only gun law we need in America is one that bans reporters from ever coming near one. Momma, don't let your kids grow up to be airhead reporters, or they they just might find themselves on the short list for a Darwin Award some day.

Yellow Lab Fishes and Catches Huge Salmon

Ok, now I have seen hunting dogs track down an animal, but this is the first time I have ever seen a dog catch a fish.   And not just any fish, this dog is playing in the water, then he sees a salmon and chases it until he catches it.  Ehen he brings it to shore for his owner.  Awesome must see video.

Could Eruptions Like This One, Raise Ocean Temperatures?

Earlier Friday afternoon, scientists funded by NOAA and the National Science Foundation released video of an underwater volcano eruption. This eruption is the deepest erupting volcano ever discovered and recorded. The video of this eruption is more than awesome, it is spectacular. In an area near Fiji, Tonga and Samoa, the West Mata volcano was discovered in May. The volcano lies almost 4,000 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

The scientists say they found a type of lava they have never seen erupting from an active volcano before. They also witnessed molten lava flowing across the deep-ocean seafloor for the first time ever. That is what the missions Chief Scientist, Joseph Resing, told reporters when he held a news conference explaining their findings. In 2004 the NOAA and it's partners discovered a much shallower eruption in an area called the Mariana Arc, but they knew that the deeper they went and the closer they got to the eruptions, that they would see the kind of eruptions that formed most of the oceanic crust.

What you will see in the video is a spectacular sequence that is close enough to the eruption that you can actually see violent magma degassing and producing bright flashes of hot magma. The Lava gets blown up into the water and then settles back to the sea floor, while the large plugs of lava flow rapidly down the slope. In the foreground you can see the front of the remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) with sampling hoses. To give you the right perspective of what you are watching, the area in view is about 6-10 feet across in an eruptive area approximately 100 yards that runs along the summit.

Two things I need to know. First question is, we know that 71% of the earths surface is water and we know more about the planet Mars than we do about the ocean floor, is it possible that any warming of the oceans surface temperature is caused by the thousands of underwater volcanoes like the one in the video? And my second question is, when will we as a group quit standing around waiting for the modern day Nazi's to throw us into their concentration camps of poverty and misery, and take them these clowns down for good?

Also I found this information from an article you can read in whole at Science Daily, that Carol Stein, professor of earth and environmental sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago, is a member of the research team that has studied the region, located between 50 and 150 miles offshore and covering an area the size of Connecticut. The sea floor, some two miles below, is marked by a collection of about 10 widely separated outcrops or mounts, rising from sediment covering crust made of extinct volcanic rock some 20-25 million years old. Stein and her colleagues found that seawater on this cold ocean floor is flowing through cracks and crevices faster and in greater quantity than what is typically found at mid-ocean ridges formed by rising lava. Water temperatures, while not as hot as by the ridge lava outcrops, are surprisingly warm as well.

Finding so much movement in a bland area of the ocean was surprising. "It's like finding Old Faithful in Illinois," said Stein. "When we went out to try to get a feel for how much heat was coming from the ocean floor and how much sea water might be moving through it, we found that there was much more heat than we expected at the outcrops."

Then from an this at WorldNetDaily.com that was published in Dec 2008 about Scientists finding greenhouse gas hysteria to be myth. It seems that a study by Gilbert Compo and Prashant Sardeshmukh of the University of Colorado and NOAA, and presented in the scientific journal Climate Dynamics, maintains that all of the greenhouse gases dumped into the atmosphere by humans over the last 46 years haven't affected land temperatures at all."The rise in land temperatures, the study states, can be tied directly to increased heat and humidity coming from warmer oceans, which in turn, the study admits, may be caused solely by natural forces.

"But if rising land temperatures are caused by rising ocean temperatures, what's causing the earth's seas to heat up? Although admitting that it could be man-made, the study said that it could also be due to increased sun activity, underwater volcanoes or simply the earth's regular patterns.

"Although not a focus of this study," write Compo and Sardeshmukh, "the degree to which the oceans themselves have recently warmed due to increased GHG, other anthropogenic, natural solar and volcanic forcings, or internal multi-decadal climate variations is a matter of active investigation."

So from what I understand, we cannot rule out the theory that natural causes from oceanic volcanos can be at leat partly to blame for any warming of the ocean temperateness. Which by the way we are told is a key indicator of global warming along with the rise in CO2.

Finally, the last time I checked, we cannot get close to the amount of carbon dioxide these volcanoes on the ocean floor are putting out. Anyone who wants to tell me that we know mankind is responsible for Global Warming, I can only guess they are looking to control the masses for their own greed of money and power. Well, I for one will not willingly board the train to misery and poverty these Nazi's have prepared for us. The way I see it, there will come a day when civil disobedience will be our only option, and from my vantage point it seems we are getting closer and closer to that moment every day.

Insane Canadian Fishermen

This is the first of the many videos I will be posting for this new blog. This one comes from YouTube and it is by Break Media, and it is truly funny.

One of my favorite pastimes is fishing. Ever since I was a young boy growing up in Northern Minnesota, I have enjoyed the leisure sport of fishing. In the last 5 years I have taken up the sport of fly Fishing and found it to be even more enjoyable then fishing with a reel and worms. I have fished many rivers and in many states across this vast country, but I have never ventured outside of America to fish.

I always thought that someday I might like to fish in Canada. Then after watching this video and seeing how they fish up there, I have decided to stay in the United States and fish like I have become accustomed. Take a look at this video and see why I am not a great fan of the way they fish North of the U.S. border.
