boston-marathon-explosion-bombs-2013-570x760Today during one of the most historic races in a America, two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon, in Boston, MA. causing more than 144 injuries and leaving 3 dead including spectators and racers. Preliminary witness reports hearing two separate explosions near the finish line of the marathon about 15 seconds apart form each other as many of the racers were preparing to finish the race. Emergency responders are on the seen attending to all who were injured. Right now FBI investigators and law enforcement officials are investigating to determine the cause of the explosions and they have not yet released a statement about the definite cause of the incident, and they have neither confirmed nor denied whether this was a planned bombing or unfortunate explosion due to some type of unforeseen infrastructure failure.  Currently counter terrorism units are seen working with local and federal officials to help determine the cause of the incident as well.  Vice President Joe Biden has released a statement stating ” That his office has just been made aware of the incidents and that the thoughts and prayers of himself and his office are with all of those effected and they are waiting on information about the cause of the explosions as well.  My thoughts and prayers are with not only the city of Boston but also to the families of all of those who are effected. This is truly a confusing and perplexing turn of events and I am cannot wrap my mind round what could potentially be the motivation behind this incident and I will be keeping a close eye on events and actions not only surrounding this incident but events to come.

Student Loan Debt FOR LIFE!!!

Student Loan debt is officially the sinlge largest source of debt in the United states by finally  surpassing credit card a little over a year ago. Student Loan debt is catastrophic problem that is crippling millions of American everyday causing tremendous financial hardships and struggles for many people to barely make ends meet, let alone actually pay back the astronomical amounts of money owed, plus the insanely ridiculous compounding interest which effortlessly adds years to the life of these loans and almost enures your principal will remain untouched.  As a young person & recent college graduate, I can attest to how hard it is to truly comprehend the amount of money you will have to pay back to the institutions that so generously came to your aid when you needed help paying for those classes, and how you know have to almost completely change your entire life’s plan just to get a foot hold on the monstrous debt. These concepts are never easy to grasp and often time even hard to even ponder but these are real issues that fade real people every day. Below is an article form the BloomBerg report going into some detail about some options that many be available  to some of us who owe student loans, and also some stories of some people who just may be a little bit more in the hole than you are when it comes dealing with the problem that never seems to go away…..SALLIE MAE!!

Sandy Hook Shooting….Possible Hoax???

o-SANDY-HOOK-CONSPIRACY-THEORY-facebook

A friend of mine sent me this video a little while ago & I finally got a chance to sit down and watch the short film in it’s entirety. This is basically a video of compiled research disputing many of the facts that the media has perpetuated and reported about the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting.  This video has honestly open my eyes to quite a few inconsistencies with the way things have been reported, and the behavior of some of the parents of the victims. Now personally I have NEVER been one to take the reports of the Mass Media at face value and so unwittingly believe what is reported, but due to the horrific nature of the crimes reported I was so engulfed with emotion & personal feelings that I blindly accepted what was told to me. Now I am not saying that I agree or disagree with this video, or the media reports but this video has opened my eyes to tons of issues that I was not previously aware of. My advice to anyone who watches this video is to look at with an open mind and do some research for yourself, because in this day in age you cannot put anything past the Government nor media, and you certainly cannot believe EVERYTHING that is being told you.

Hostess snack company…NOT going out of buinsess just yet!!!

As I am sure most of you have heard the recent news that the maker of one of America’s most beloved snack treats, Hostess, announced Friday that it was going out of business due to an ongoing labor strike that stemmed from negotiation breakdowns between Hostess and it’s labor unions.Hostess announced that with it’s workforce of over 18,500 employees being on strike that it simply could not operate and since talks were going no where  the snack maker filed bankruptcy, and chose to liquidate all of its assets rather the go through the bankruptcy process and try to salvage the company. When news of the snack makers impending closure thousands upon thousands of Americas flocked to stores, grocers, gas stations and vending machines alike attempting to stock pile these Delicious confectionery treats and savor a tasty piece of American History.  Also, shortly after the company announced it’s plan to liquidate, talks resumed between Hostess and the Teamsters labor union. However, the bakers union was unwilling to budge on its position and did not accept any deals that were in place, so the company was forced to move forward with Liquidation.

HOWEVER, in a surprise announcement today a bankruptcy court judged ordered the two sides to sit back down at the mediation table and at least attempt to come to some type of agreement to not only save the 18,oo0+ jobs, but to also save a company that has been an American Classic for over 83 years. Hopefully the two sides can soon come to some type of agreement and save the jobs of so many employees and help keep the American economy from getting any worse. Now in my personal opinion i n o longer indulge in hostess snack cakes because i choose to life a healthier life style, but I do not see a problem in having Twinkie every now and again because let’s be honest…TWINKIES ARE  PRETTY AWESOME LOL not to mention I would hate to see so many thousands of Americans out of work. Below is an article form the New York times that describes the events in a little more detail.
