On 6/12/15, KNX 1070 posted three stories about the origins of two fast food icons and about the history of Aerospace in Downey, CA.

About the two fast food icons, one is the original and the other is the oldest surviving of the original few locations. I grew up going to both of these.

Growing up in Downey, we were all aware of the Aerospace companies there, and about family and neighbors that were involved in someway.

USW Strike and Gas Prices | posted by MikesView

Today’s (3/1/2015) national average for a gallon of unleaded regular, shown on the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report, is $2.414 ( http://fuelgaugereport.aaa.com/ ).

Unleaded regular averaged $1.89 /gal around town on 1/31/2015, in Manassas, VA (two cents more than the national average on 1/20/2009).

The next day (2/1/2015), the United Steelworkers (USW) went on strike against nine significant US refineries. Negotiations with Shell (who lead the refiners group, including Marathon and others) continued breaking down on successive days, with union votes failing to pass offers made by the refinery group. The day after the strike began, the prices around Manassas, were already back up to around $2.00 /gal. Around a week to 10 days into it, two more refineres were struck. Unleaded regular had risen to an average of $2.15, here around Manassas. On 2/18/2015, an Exxon Mobil refinery, in Torrance, CA, has a blow out with a fire. By 2/20/2015, prices around Manassas climbed to $2.25. By 2/27/2015, 15 refineries ( 20% of US refineries) were under strike by the USW. As of 3/1/2015, prices here in Manassas are still $2.25 to $2.29.

A strike cronology follows:

3/4/2015; Waiting for next meeting

2/27/2015; UPDATE 1-Union, Shell to resume talks in U.S. refinery strike on March 4

TPNN | Has Bergdahl Been Charged with Desertion Yet? – Announcement Forthcoming | posting by MikesView

While some from Bergdahl’s Army unit thought he might be a traitor, the indication was he should at least be charged with desertion. Looks like he has been.

Leftist lynch mobs rioting in Ferguson, marching through Manhattan and screaming in Oakland assert that the presumption of innocence doesn’t apply to police officers or white Hispanics. Their poses of victimization with their cries of “Black lives matter” and “I can’t breathe” disguise what they really are.

American Thinker | Blog: Berkeley erupts in violent protest over police, racism, and ‘whaddya got?’

My general impression is that many of the protestors had little grasp of either the details of the incidents in Ferguson and New York, or of the violent intent of the revolutionaries who seek to spread chaos and unrest. They were probably genuinely surprised to learn that police could and would lawfully deploy force and declare a gathering illegal once violence was used by demonstrators.

While The New York Times has spilled gallons of ink on the campus rape epidemic, the GOP’s Mark Foley underage page scandal and the Catholic Church’s pedophilia problem, it has remained silent the past six months on the alleged child rape scheme of one of the Democratic Party’s most prominent campaign contributors and activists.
