Where are the shootings?

To my surprise there hasn’t been nearly enough shootings for me to feel like a true oracle. I have no doubt that more are to come, however, they are long overdue. Maybe with the darkness of fall, no money to buy x-mas gifts and some more comical events will change that? It probably will, I’m not worried, just curious why not more maniacs snap and I’m keeping my own odds about towns, the number of victims and who it will be that run amok.

Also, looking at America, the government needs more excuses to stamp down on gun-rights, consequently I aspect a huge rampage at any moment.

I’ll guess on a disgruntle office employee with a semi-automatic, doing it at his former working place, with 11 dead in the city of Pittsburg. I’m also thinking there will be something in Eastern Europe of the same, not enough killing sprees in those countries. Latvia maybe?

Well, any way, today is a good day for buying more popcorn. More funnies on the way, so I need to be fully loaded for all that hilarious bloodshed.


More "Green Shoots"...

The REAL NUMBERS are, of course, even worse. Over 1 million people less working in Sept compared to Aug.

LA Times
WASHINGTON — The unemployment rate rose to 9.8 percent in September as employers cut far more jobs than expected, evidence that the longest recession since the 1930s is still inflicting widespread pain.

The Labor Department said today that the economy lost a net total of 263,000 jobs last month, up from a downwardly revised 201,000 in August. That's above Wall Street economists' expectations of 180,000 job losses, according to a survey by Thomson Reuters.

Secession possible in the US?

Of course the Russians say such things, but I wouldn't dismiss this entirely...

... because:

And you cannot really dismiss:

I wouldn't take this serious right now, but who knows...
