Mandatory- All power lines underground

Mandatory- All power lines underground

What is so wrong with building all types of power systems underground?

We do this now with gas
I have listened to
some power company employees
am not buying their reasons!
Let's check out this newest storm
coming from the west,
now using
New York, New Jersey and New England
as a target.

Nor’easter to bring heavy snow, strong winds

As much as 20 inches possible in some areas; blizzard watch, coastal flooding watch in effect.

Watch the loss of power, loss of life and property.
This happens every year, every storm.

I can understand not going underground
with an older system
(A 240 VAC 3 PH system. Using two legs and a neutral of the 3-ph system).

If this system is done correctly
not covered until a
(Qualified Inspector),
signs off on the system.

Inspectors must understand
that they will
now be responsible
for the system,
for life!

In other words,

 "No cheating because you are paid to lie and cheat."

Navy Cross review complete

Navy recommends 2 for Medal of Honor;
Navy Cross review complete
Published: December 6, 2016

Two Navy Cross recipients honored for acts of valor in Afghanistan or Iraq instead deserved the Medal of Honor for their actions and are being nominated for an upgrade, the Navy said Tuesday.

The announcement,

first reported by USA Today, is part of a review of all Silver Stars and service crosses awarded since Sept. 11, 2001.

As part of the review, the Navy has also determined that an unspecified number of Silver Stars will be upgraded to Navy Crosses.

The names of the two service members awarded the Navy Crosses, the service’s second-highest medal, have not been made public.

The department-wide medals review was directed by former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in 2014

after questions arose about how there appeared to be so few Medal of Honor recipients from more than a decade of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Navy is the first to announce its findings. The service did not specify whether the Medal of Honor nominees were Marines or sailors.

Rosa Peralta accepts the Navy Cross from Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus on behalf of her son USMC Sgt. Rafael Peralta on Jun 8, 2015 at a ceremony at Camp Pendleton, Calif.

Peralta was 25 when he was killed Nov. 15, 2004, in Fallouja, Iraq.

Marines who were there insist that,

as he lay dying, Peralta reached out and scooped up an enemy grenade, absorbing the blast and saving the lives of fellow Marines.

Many say he deserved the Medal of Honor.

Lawmakers say new evidence shows Marine deserves Medal of Honor

To date,

there have been four Medal of Honor recipients for actions in Iraq, all awarded posthumously.

There have been 14 Medal of Honor recipients for actions in Afghanistan.

Earlier this year, the services told Stars and Stripes that a total of 1,357 medals were being reviewed to determine whether they should be upgraded.

The Army is reviewing 785 Silver Star and Distinguished Service Cross awards; the Navy, including the Marines, reviewed 425 Navy Cross and Silver Star medals, and the Air Force is reviewing 147 medals, including 135 Silver Stars and 12 Air Force Crosses. None of the medals under review would be downgraded,

officials said.

Capt. Patrick McNally,

a spokesman for Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, said

the secretary had

“recommended that two Navy Cross recipients be considered for the Medal of Honor.”

Those recommendations would have to be approved by the president


the Pentagon might need to get a waiver from Congress

depending on when the act of valor took place, because law stipulates Medals of Honor must be awarded within five years of the action.

McNally also said the Navy has completed its review of potential Silver Stars that will be upgrades to Navy Crosses.

Upgrading an award from Silver Star to a service cross only needs approval from the service secretary.

“Those are complete and will be awarded in individual ceremonies,”

McNally said.

He could not say how many Navy Crosses would be awarded or when it will happen.

Pearl Harbor 75 years after "date which will live in infamy!"

Pearl Harbor 75th anniversary:
World War II vets recall
"date which will live in infamy"

Pay close attention to what the experts have to say about having a "Complete Bully" running your county.

Ask a Vet!

Among those who served in the military, December 7, 1941,
 is still remembered
as the "date which will live in infamy"

that President Franklin D. Roosevelt

described in addressing a stunned nation the day after the attack.

Few learned of the attack faster

than Adone "Cal" Calderone, 96, of Massillon,

who was enjoying a cup of coffee

when he felt the first of seven Japanese torpedoes slam into his battleship, the USS West Virginia, at Pearl Harbor.

Calderone would make a treacherous escape from the sinking ship by swimming up through a flooded ventilation shaft to emerge in a scene of fiery death and destruction. Only later that night would the impact of the attack hit, as Calderone thought to himself, "Holy cripe, what the hell happened here?"

Today, just remembering that narrow escape still bothers him. Even worse is the feeling that "I still can't get over the loss of life," he said. "It's a little emotional."

Remembering Germany, Japan, Italy, China, Russia, Iraqi, Iran, Cuba, Syria, Brazil, Rome, Babylon, Canaan, Amalek, and the Philistines.

Will the United States of America be next on this list?

Hurricane Matthew and East Lake County Florida!


Why was Central Florida (hurricane dollar damage so low)?

Friday, December 2, 2016

One might get the idea;

if it was not against the law to do so,

that a hurricane is an opening,
to make people
not voting correctly

Some areas of a direct hit from a hurricane
not getting any help from the government.


Call it

 "Not enough dollar damage!"

Why was Central Florida (hurricane dollar damage so low)?

Why was Central Florid 
 (hurricane dollar damage so low)?
A quick follow-up on a past post.
Matthew and East Lake County Florida!
In order to find the answer,
Because you will never believe the reason.
We must go back a number of years to a time of (Florida Style Powwows).

Spending some time with Floridians, one will see that most, at least the ones in and around the Ocala Forrest, moved there because they

'Hate laws, rules and regulations'.
If you do not believe this just ask them.

As for their cars and trucks, not only are there no Catelli Converter, many do not even have the correct muffler.

This type of person does not want "Big Brother" anywhere near their property.

Just what is it that they are trying to hide?

After Hurricane Matthew,
we watched about thirty, state, power company, phone company and contractor trucks traveling up and down our road.


Many, many, trucks, hulling leaves, branches, trees, pieces of building
no one called their insurance companies,
if they even have insurance.

Only a hand fill filed a claim to Lake county or FEMA!

Anyone wish to guess why?

Hurricane Matthew and East Lake County Florida!

Lets see
