Breaking News — 32 Comments

  1. I signed up, and will upgrade. Am just short of 80, and for the couple of bucks a month, young George gives out a hell of a lot of ideas, information to either think about or use. One should make me about $4000 in the coming year. Not much compared to the all knowing experts of everything in the universe,, but not bad for two hours a week.. Then, I could always play a few more hours.. Formula is brain dead people, with money, who need to establish and maintain their “identity”. And I carve Santa’s folks..

  2. I don’t get this “Federal Judge Strikes Down Texas Voter ID Law”
    Everyone should have a photo ID card. drivers license or state id and if you want to vote a voter id. If you’re to lazy to get off the couch and get an id then f’ off.
    Why does everyone get a trophy.
    It should be a right to vote as a citizen in our country, but you will need to prove you’re a citizen and you’re voting at the right station.

  3. “Trump Admin Blocks Democrats’ Push for 2020 Census to Ask About Sexual Orientation”

    Well they don’t need to ask they already know. Your web habits will clearly show what your are and what you like. So see Trumps for the normal people, see he’s protecting us from the evil government. Meanwhile he lets the telecoms collect and sell our data.

  4. “Trump’s business network reached alleged Russian mobsters”

    No one seem to comment on these various articles.
    I would think this part of the site would be blowing up with comments about what people think.

    The more we learn and the more they dig the more we find out that Trump is not speaking factual and more telling us what we want to hear. I don’t know why we expected anything different as its been this way forever.

    • Who cares? Where is the corruption probe of the Clinton Foundation for holding up world leaders and doing equal or possibly worse?

      Get a grip. Everyone’s hand get dirty if you dig far enough.

      The story comes from USA Today which (if you take gingko biloba) did ENDORSE CLINTON and is part of the liberal what?

      • Totally agree that if you dig in on the government, you’re going to find the dirt.

        Who cares? We should all care, but we don’t as long as its the guy we like.

        We’re better, we should hold our guy to the fire as well as slamming their guy when they do wrong. We fall into the division plan when we don’t. We need to find common ground or we’re done.

        ps thanks for using this side of the site.

  5. “BlackRock and Vanguard call for delay to fiduciary rule”
    How is anyone supposed to understand anything in this F’ed up world?
    OK this to me says that these new rules are to protect individual investors from basically the greed of wallstreet. Blackrock and vanguard say lets hold off on this at least 12 months.
    Why hold off 12 months, how much time have you had to get ready for this, why would 12 months help you?
    Every time I look at the world one thing comes to mind. “The only way to win the game is not to play.”

    AS a simple minded person, just a dam hvac guy this is all beyond confusing. Every aspect, right down to my damned cable bill. Why in the F am I paying a universal tax. That’s a tax that doesn’t even have a damned reason, its a universal tax. The reason is everything all rolled up into one.

    I’m going to duct tape my head because it’s about to explode.

  6. “Watch Live: Cities Around the World Turn Their Lights Off for Earth Hour”

    For Americans we get to watch live as the rest of the world takes part in Earth Day.
    So turn on your systems and watch live as the world tries to save power to save the world.
    Can I eat a giant cheese burger and greasy fries and watch on my iphone as I walk around walmart.

  7. “ISIS Claims Responsibility for London Attack” They’ll claim anything that fits their “business model”.

    The way herds work if one does it more will follow. ISIS needs as many weak minded people to follow their twisted mentality as they can get.

    Scary that anyone can just go rent a car and plow people down. I don’t know how we fight this, well I know how but do we really want to eliminate an entire religion. That just sounds real bad, real bad. I’m sorry for saying such a thing. I’ll leave it here to see some responses. Just horrible.
    You know what may unite the world is a real Alien Invasion. que the cgi

  8. “UNUSUAL SUSPECT? Report: N. Korea eyed in cybertheft from NY Fed”
    If North Korea can somehow cyber swindle money from SWIFT then the entire banking system is worthless and soon all the money will just vanish into a dark hole.
    Clearly we want to go to war and since NK is the weakest kid on the block seems the bullies of the world will pick on fat kid.

    -Maybe your HVAC guy

  9. “If it weren’t for Nike, the Dow would be positive right now”

    Blame it on tennis shows. I think it shows 100$ shoes aren’t on a parents budget. No extra money for that kid, hmm I wonder if that’s the case.

    They still need AC though

  10. “China issues warning to US bomber flying in East China Sea”

    The article states both the Chinese and Americans say the bomber was flying in international air space.
    What was the warning about?
    On a more important note, only 1 of the 2 bombers could take off on the “training” mission due to maintenance.
    That’s kinda messed up. I mean if the bomber was actually needed for a rapid strike. I wonder if it was the HVAC system :-)

    Still the HVAC guy

  11. I wonder how many posters on the big news sites comment sections are paid to shut people down when they post. Make them feel stupid or that their thoughts are wrong. I wonder how many people wont post something to help the person who may have a good point from being shut down by the forum paid bullies, because they don’t want to or are afraid to speak their mind. Like in school when the bully picked on some kid. The picked on kid had very few friends, the bully, well he had lots of friends. Probably because they didnt want to be bullied. Does any of this make sense George. Maybe you could write up something about forum bullies or paid comment assassins. Idunno what do you think

  12. HI are we supposed to comment on the news articles here if we feel so inclined too? Is that what this comment section is for?

  13. While we all look at North Korea, what is going on somewhere else. (Look over here while I jam it in over there) I would look for more of a bio attack from NK vs a nuke. A nuke would bring their destruction within minutes.

  14. Mr. Ure, I like to run through this list of ‘Breaking News’ stories but… there is so much duplication of stories and all the Social Media articles. Please review your concept for this page. Thank you


  15. George, just listened to you on Coast 2 Coast podcast from 12/26/16. Heard you before on C2C. Went to check out both your sites. You stated Urbansurvival.com is your free website and the other is subscription. Well, this urbansrivival.com doesn’t offer much content at all other than encouraging to sign up for your paid site. What is on here that provides value? I expected more from this site. Was thinking of signing up for peoplenomics but will have to back off for now.

    • That is actually a constructive criticism – thanks.
      OK – I increased the number of recent article links (right column) to 50 – which is about 11-weeks forth.
      I also increased recent reader comments to 21,
      Each is well into the thousands but it becomes a matter of page load speed esp. for mobile users.
      I will look into adding a Master Index of articles like the Peoplenomics site has – though that site is hand-coded in HTML because of all the charts of markets over there – generally about 20 charts per week, or so…
      Hope this helps

    • My personaltake on ‘What provides value?’

      The Urban Survival site provides four days of unique economic insight plus GU’s unique personal insights in the Coping section.

      The Peoplenomics Reports are a composite in depth approach to the economic ‘picture’.

      IMHO this site provides daily value and is first on my list of hard information.

      What subject areas are of value to you?

  16. George, I like it! …but there still seems to be a lot of Media and Sports coverage.

    • Amazingly, these are only news and business feeds except the CNN Top Stories feed.
