In areas where the pythons have established themselves, rabbits and foxes can no longer be found. Sightings of raccoons are down 99 per cent, opossums 98.9 per cent and white-tailed deer 94 per cent, according to a paper published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
''What if the stock market had declined that much? Think of the adjectives you'd use for that,'' said Gordon Rodda, an invasive-species specialist with the US Geological Survey, who published research in 2008 showing Burmese pythons could expand across the southern United States.
Lets help each other out and tell everyone where the wolves are so we can up our wolf harvest. Im hoping that we would all like to support this wolf locator map to help reduce the wolf population and hopefully restore the herds they have damaged.
The map is located on my website www.RidgelineOutdoors.com. For this to work ill need you all to let me know when (date) and where (specific location ) you have a sighting, tracks, harvest, wolf kill, whatever.... email this information to firstname.lastname@example.org and ill get it updated quickly.
Please forward this to your friends so we can get this started. Thanks for your help and go kill one!
Here is the map. These are only my personal experiences in the past few weeks so there are only a few. http://ridgelineoutdoors.com/wolf_map.html Lets get more on here, anywhere in the west.

Imagine what the schools will have to do to oversee these "students' who don't want to be there, don't want to learn, have no ambition or work ethic and just want to remain disruptive to the students and teachers around them. Go ahead, just put armed guards in every hall way (make sure they are all NEA members while you are at it) and keep these young thugs occupied with biology, economics, physics, history and higher or lower math. Yea right. Is it any wonder we fall further behind in the global rankings?

Well as of today, Orange Juice has just hit an all time high price of $223.25 , and has returned a jaw-dropping 32.4% YTD, or 7,032% annualized. This is the biggest 4 day surge since October 2006, and for all intents and purposes, essentially the biggest ever. Needless to say, Randolph and Mortimer Capital LLC is back up and running, and has been forced to limit investor inflows due to unprecedented interest in this asset class, which, yes, you can eat (a little freeze drying may be required in advance). At this rate, bottle service of Dom Perignon will cost less than a small container of Tropicana!

Federal authorities arrested three people in New York and Boston early Wednesday and were expected to charge another, expanding an insider-trading investigation to directly involve some of Wall Street's most prominent money managers.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation in Boston arrested Todd Newman, a former portfolio manager with hedge-fund firm Diamondback Capital Management who oversaw technology investments, according to a law enforcement official.
The FBI separately arrested Jon Horvath, a technology analyst with Sigma Capital Management, an affiliate of giant hedge fund SAC Capital Advisors, in Manhattan, an official said. Anthony Chiasson, a former hedge-fund manager at Level Global Investors LP, surrendered to the FBI in New York, and a fourth person was being sought. Chiasson and Newman are accused of illegally trading ahead of computer maker Dell's earnings announcements for the first and second quarters of 2008, netting them profits, respectively, of $57 million and $3.8 million. Another defendant, Jon Horvath, is accused of making an illegal $1 million trade in Dell. The charges Wednesday appear to hew to a pattern emerging in the government's insider-trading investigation, in which tight-knit circles of associates at different firms are accused of pooling their information for mutual benefit.

Georgia State is No. 11, which seems odd considering many could easily date walk down the safe streets of Atlanta and find an employable North Avenue Trade School grad.
The results of the report will be featured on ABC News’ 20/20, says SeekingArrangement.com, a dating site that helps moneyed men hook up with cash-strapped women looking for little more than a proper education. The number of ladies seeking a free ride grew in 2011.
“In 2011, we saw an explosion in the number of college students seeking Sugar Daddies to help pay their college tuition”, says website founder and MIT graduate Brandon Wade. “One in every two Sugar Babies who join our website today are college students, and college Sugar Babies now make up 40% of our Sugar Baby population, up from 33% in 2010.” Perhaps this explains why the original name of Sugar Daddy, the candy, not the man writing checks, was Papa Sucker.
Here’s the Top 20 list for 2011, ranked according to the number of Sugar Babies silly enough to use their school email address when signing up. Penn State rolls in at No. 13, but I’ll let you write your own jokes.

The hunters objected strongly saying, "Last year we shot two and the pilot let us take them both...and he had exactly the same airplane as yours." Reluctantly the pilot, not wanting to be outdone by another bush pilot, gave in and everything was loaded. However, even under full power the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down, crashing in the wooded wilderness. Somehow, surrounded by the moose, clothing and sleeping bags, Bubba and Bobby Joe survived the crash.
After climbing out of the wreckage, Bubba asked Bobby Joe, "Any idea where we are?"
Bobby Joe replied, "I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year."

From a Chippewa Partners seminar in Rancho Santa Fe, CA
“As an arbitrator for the New York Stock Exchange I censured many stockbrokers and know that investors often confuse a sales pitch with impartial investment advice. Do you think Tiger Woods and Bill Gates use stockbrokers to increase their net worth and protect their assets? Not a chance. The simple answer is they have competent, unbiased investment managers. They hire investment management professionals to manage their assets. So should you.”
Here it is: Bill Gross: Putrid long bond auction shows that the only investor that wants 30-yr Treasuries is the Fed.
It may not end well but it sure is going to be entertaining.
Dear United States of America: We regret to inform you that your withdrawals exceeded your deposits last year by $1,600,000,000,000 ($1.6 trillion), including your "supplemental appropriations" spending.
Your account does have an overdraft protection, and so bonds were sold to cover your $1.6 trillion overdraft. While we value your business, we feel obligated to remind you that this is the third year that your overdraft protection exceeded 10% of your gross national product (GDP), and it seems your account is on course to register yet another $1.6 trillion overdraft in fiscal year 2012.
Currently, your overdraft account exceeds your GDP of $15 trillion.
Quite frankly, we are worried that you have become dependent on extensive overdraft protection--a feature designed to tide the account holder over for a short period of time in near-term expectation of higher deposits or lower withdrawals--and that relying on large-scale overdraft borrowing to cover your basic expenses is now your standard operating procedure.
This violates the intent of the overdraft feature, and as a result we must seriously consider modifying the terms of the overdraft protection on your account. Current conditions enable us to provide this overdraft, but the feature was not designed to be permanent nor on this scale.
In order to give you sufficient time to bring your deposits and withdrawals back into alignment, we will maintain the current low-interest overdraft protection on your account through fiscal year 2012. Beyond that, however, please be aware that to maintain the integrity of the system, we will have to raise the rate of interest on your overdraft and scale back the size of the overdraft line of credit.
We regret informing you of these modifications, but the overdraft protection was not intended to be permanent nor near-infinite in scale.
The Global Bond Market
I think the trend in gold has reversed and the miners should participate. We'll see. The bots trading against bots is nothing the SEC or NYSE want to address in an election year and there's too much money involved to do anything for the American public. Watching all the zombies on CNBC talk about earnings, sovereign countries, Fed policy, tax structure, fundamentals, market share, revenue growth, this was important stuff once upon a time but no longer, not with over 80% of trades being bot trades. Prices and volume are being manipulated by bots. Just fire all the humans on CNBC and flash computer code across the screen all day. The equity markets are dead. The sad reality is that our SEC has no interest in touching this problem. Let the last algo turn itself off when the ponzi is done.
Reading about the implosion of so many hedge funds is getting old. It's funny how many funds call themselves hedge funds when there isn't hedging but rather a single leveraged punt.
I have a very busy weekend ahead of me and hope you do to. Living in America we have so much to be thankful for and so many to help. I thought I would share this video so that you may share it.
The Top 5 Reasons Obama Must Be Removed as Commander-in-ChiefBy Stella Paul
Obama recently signed a mysterious new law that proclaims all American soil is a "battleground," thereby allowing the president to indefinitely detain any American citizen without charges. Critics fear Obama will use his fun new unconstitutional powers to make his political enemies disappear, but that may not be necessary.

Our nation's debt on 12/31/2011 was at an all time record $15,222,940,045,451.09.
That works out to about $124,000 for every single American.
But hey, it's only debt.
Look deep into the eyes of our children and just tell it like it is.
The Ministry Of Propaganda Declares Ron Paul "Unelectable"
The Ministry of Propaganda has chosen to suppress the only dangerous-to-the-Power Elites candidate by declaring him "unelectable."
The Status Quo's Ministry of Propaganda has a single political task for 2012: eliminate the sole threat to the Status Quo (Ron Paul) from the running, leaving voters with a "choice" of clueless stooges for the Power Elite.
That roster includes President Obama and the daytime-TV/soap-opera field of Republicrat contenders.
The Ministry of Propaganda has settled on a ludicrous strategy to eliminate Ron Paul: declare Paul "unelectable."
As with all propaganda, the basic idea is that if it is repeated often enough on officially sanctioned stages, it will eventually be accepted as "true."
Our Christmas-New Year's week of family visits took us to homes where the television is on all the time, and as a result I was exposed to the Ministry of Propaganda's preferred media, TV "news." Regardless of the channel or program, the message was the same: "The presidential race will between Obama and either Romney or Gingrich."
Despite the polls that find Paul and Romney with equal levels of support in Iowa, Romney has been declared the front-runner and Paul written off as "unelectable."
In other words, the voters don't even need to check in; the Ministry of Propaganda's army of toadies, lackeys and media apparatchiks have their marching orders: repeat that Ron Paul is unelectable at every opportunity, either explicitly or implicitly via leaving him off the list of "frontrunners."
The Ministry of Propaganda's campaign is easily revealed by two simple thought experiments. How would the corporate media characterize Newt Gingrich's "electability" if he was running neck-and-neck with Romney? Answer: the media toadies would be falling over each other to declare Gingrich "electable."
Now repeat the experiment with Rick Santorum or Michelle Bachmann. The answer is the same: since these candidates are on the list of Power-Elites approved stooges, a showing equal to Ron Paul's would instantly win them veritable tsunamis of media coverage, all focused on their eminent "electability."
Here is the second thought experiment: does anyone seriously think any of the Republicrat candidates are even remotely qualified to deal with the crises brewing on the horizon? What exactly makes them "electable"?
Let's consider them one at a time, scrubbed of spin, PR and propaganda:
Mitt Romney: the perfect player for a remake of "The Stepford Wives" entitled "The Stepford Politicos." Romney is the personification of the telegenic, wealthy empty suit, devoid of any ideas beyond retreads of Status Quo tweaks that leave the Power Elite--of which he is a member--safely in charge.
Romney's "electability" rests on the hopes that the hard drives from his time as governor stay safely erased and that zombified voters conclude that having a family and membership in a church are sufficient qualifications for President.
His handlers have carefully studied the political satire The Candidate and have not yet formulated an answer to the question, "What do we do now?" should the wealthy pawn of the Power Elite improbably win the presidency.
Michelle Bachmann: Imagine her wearing a witch's hat, it isn't hard to do; Bachmann is the ideal Wicked Witch of the West, but without the charisma. She does have a host of frightful winged monkeys, though--her handlers.
Newt Gingrich: Gingrich has a number of redeeming characteristics, starting with his famously unsavory "baggage" that reveals an appealingly flawed core. He is also the only Republicrat candidate that wouldn't bore you to despair within a few minutes, i.e. he actually strays from the canned scripts approved by the Ministry of Propaganda. Third, on occasion he actually reveals glimmers of awareness that the next 10 years will not be like the previous decade, and that America is at a critical crossroads.
Unfortunately, his canned ideology-as-"solution" ideas expired a decade ago and he has no coherent vision of a future that isn't just a slightly modified version of the Power-Elite dominated one that is now hurtling toward instability.
He has shown a remarkable ability, however, to hide his horns and forked tail.
Rick Perry: Another telegenic empty suit who hoped that having a family and membership in a church qualified him for the presidency.
Rick Santorum: Rick's ruthlessness has its charm, starting with his long and painful campaign to establish a simulacrum of intellectual "seriousness." Like all the other stooges, his version of "the vision thing" is a tepid edit of the Status Quo. Like all the stooges other than the refreshingly flawed Gingrich, he hopes membership in a church qualifies him for the presidency.
What all the candidates but Ron Paul dare not acknowledge because it isn't on the approved Ministry of Propaganda script is that the Status Quo is heading off a cliff at the direct behest of the nation's Power Elite. The only candidate that has "the vision thing" and that clearly enunciates exactly how the Power Elite's policies have led the nation off a cliff of insolvency and Imperial hubris is Ron Paul.
For this sin against the Status Quo and its Power Elite, Paul has been excommunicated, and the (pardon my language) smarmy army of corporate media whores cannot declare him "unelectable" often enough.
That is proof that he is highly electable, for otherwise the Ministry of Propaganda wouldn't be running a campaign of such transparent desperation.
