Back in 1988, John Carpentar came out with this partial sci-fi "B-Rated" movie.

I just hope they stay true to the theme and update us on today's technology ... like those HDTV's.

(Dec 24 2008) - When Trust Runs Out
U.S.A. -- by Gary North : Every society and every institution rests heavily on trust. There is active trust, the result of "trust, but verify." I call this stage one trust. Then there is stage two trust, which I call default trust: "Trust, and assume that someone else has verified." Next, there is stage three trust, which I call blind trust: "Trust, because there is nothing else worth trusting." Then there stage four trust, which I call tooth fairy trust: "Trust, despite all evidence to the contrary." This form of trust is the foundation of all Ponzi schemes.

It is the deliberate result of US government policy instrumented through the Treasury and the US Federal Reserve Board. This is the most serious economic crisis in World history. The "bailout" proposed by the US Treasury does not constitute a "solution" to the crisis. In fact quite the opposite: it is the cause of further collapse. It triggers an unprecedented concentration of wealth, which in turn contributes to widening economic and social inequalities both within and between nations.

M1 is physical currency circulating in the economy plus demand deposits (checking accounts). This measure is used by economists to try and quantify the amount of money in circulation. M1 is the most liquid measure of money supply since it only contains cash and assets quickly usable for conversion to currency. Hang in. M2 is MI + time deposits, savings deposits and non-institutional money-market funds. M2 is a wider category of money than M1. It’s also used to quantify the volume of money in circulation and to explain economic conditions.

(Oct 26 2008) - Obama's spring break in Pakistan
U.S.A. –- By Don Fredrick : As any red-blooded American male can tell you, spring break for college students means Florida beaches and wet T-shirt contests. If what I’ve seen on the E! Network is any indication, things have gotten a lot looser than when I went to school. Still, even in the 1970s and 1980s a good time could probably be had by all. Heck, even a learned bookworm like Barack Obama might have had a little fun once in a while, right? Or did the boy-wonder spend all his waking hours studying the U. S. Constitution, looking for Presidential qualifications loopholes?

PORTERVILLE, CA -- It's been over 6 months since Congress held a "Super-Secret-Session" regarding many issues that could effect the American way of life and American society as-a-whole. Congress has yet to be forth coming since the March of 2008 meeting and by all counts, may never reveal what was discussed. However ... what leaked from this rare meeting included "the imminent collapse of the U.S. economy to occur by September 2008." So ... if congress knew about the collapse ahead of time, then so did Wall Street. And they both conspired to defraud the American people and America, all the while sheltering their concerns under "National Security".

PPD Saving Lives - One Child at a Time PORTERVILLE CA. - Around 3:00pm, one of Porterville’s Peace Officers noticed that a young child was left unattended in the front driver’s seat of car parked in a lot at a local restaurant. Instinctively he stopped to check on the child and observed that the parent was inside the restaurant picking up a “To-Go” order. The child was accompanied by an older sibling – still younger than state law requires. As it turned out there were three children and one female parent, who was informed by Porterville P.D. that she needed to transport children this young and small in Child Safety seats or Child booster seats. This more-than-kind officer instructed her not to drive home this way and to contact someone who had child safety seats. To be sure, this was an accident waiting to happen. DMV records show that the number one cause for death among children ages 2 to 14 are due in large part to the nonuse or improper use of child seats and safety seats. Good looking out PPD !

PDF : This Report is Graphic ! Senator John McCain won’t talk about Barack Obama’s racist Reverend Jeremiah Wright, an adviser to Obama for 20 years. This may be a factor in McCain losing the election. But the McCain campaign has done a few ads about Obama associate Bill Ayers. These ads, as well as the media coverage of the “radical” Ayers, fail to tell the human story of the carnage and suffering that Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, inflicted on innocent people. But even more scandalous than the relationship with Ayers and Dohrn, members of the communist terrorist Weather Underground, was Obama’s association as a young man with a Communist sex pervert, Frank Marshall Davis. Rush Limbaugh mentioned this on the air on his Tuesday radio show. It is a story that has the potential to change the course of the presidential campaign.

Click to Enlarge PORTERVILLE, CA. - Saturday the Post had a chance to interview Air-Base Manager Raul Contreras, who’s been with the U.S. Forestry Service for 26 years and today he was manning the air traffic control tower at Porterville’s Air Base – in the northeast sector of the Porterville Air Port.

It’s understood by many who work for the U.S. Forestry Service, that they could be called at any time and work for many hours and at great peril. All too often this goes without saying and all too often goes with delayed compensation.

This is a fun thing and can be very much a savings account for the collector, as the Comics do evaluate in time. In other words as they get older they get more valuable in price, but that also depends how carefully you pick and choose.
As I tell all customers, condition is everything. When they come into my store, and discover that I have Comic books, I hear the whirl of the book rack and that is my clue to go to the rack and inform the browzer that the books are in plastic for a reason and to not bend them or open them, with out my help.

Letter to the Editor from Corey Alvarez
PORTERVILLE - Dear Editor, I am writing you today because I am concerned with the Governors proposal of Summary Parole. This should be called No parole. This is because Summary Parole is a sham. In the proposal, it states that a person who is on Summary Parole can only be violated if they are convicted of a new felony. This makes no sense. You are not going to violate a parolee if they receive a new prison term. Why would you, they are already going to prison. Thanks for you time -- Corey Alvarez -

Post World News - : WASHINGTON -- China's new underground nuclear submarine base close to vital sea lanes in Southeast Asia has raised US concerns, with experts calling for a shoring up of alliances in the region to check Beijing's growing military clout. The base's existence on the southern tip of Hainan Island was confirmed for the first time by high resolution satellite images, according to Jane's Intelligence Review, a respected defence periodical, this month. It could hold up to 20 submarines, including a new type of nuclear ballistic missile submarine, and future Chinese aircraft carrier battle groups, posing a challenge to longstanding US military dominance in Asia. China should not pursue such "high-end military options," warned Admiral Timothy Keating, the top commander of US forces in Asia, in an interview with the Voice of America last week.
