chatting to friends in Philadelphia and its windy and wet but not terrible yet, they're trapped there in a hotel and the hotels preparations consist of supplying each room with a couple of the long life chemical lights in case the power goes out...


as far as they're concerned they'll be fine as long as the internet holds up  ;D ;D ;D

''Reminds me of the Cornishman who stood at ground zero on Sept 12th 2001. He told the yank stood next to him that he was from Camborne to which the yank replied "What state is Camborne in?" Ol' boy said "Bout the same as this to be honest wiv e."

since the oil trade changed from the dollar to chinese gold the economy of america was never going to be rosy.
this is more of a concern: http://enenews.com/abc-5-nuke-plants-problems-new-jerseys-salem-reactor-shuts-down-water-pumps-available-trouble-both-units-9-mile-point-new-york-addition-limerick-indian-point-oyster-creek (http://enenews.com/abc-5-nuke-plants-problems-new-jerseys-salem-reactor-shuts-down-water-pumps-available-trouble-both-units-9-mile-point-new-york-addition-limerick-indian-point-oyster-creek)
 
as ive mentioned before im no conspiracy theorist but prefer to analyse supposed coincidences. funny how japan produced uranium 235 for the iranians until 'fuk u' shima. now a few days before the american elections it suffers its worse peacetime disaster. america is screwed. get your money out.
im soooo glad i dont have any shares in say, monsanto.... :innocent:

I wonder what Trump will do?  With all his money will he help the people in the devastated city where his empire lives (Atlantic City)  or perhaps put a golf course in Haiti? ot maybe even clean water?

I guess they'll be closed and bleeding money so he'll be looking for handouts.  He used to have casinos in Las Vegas but they were the ones that took him to bankruptcy last time round.

Trump says he has $7bn in the bank, Forbes estimate his worth as $2.6bn.  Maybe the difference is his investment in politicians?
