Bomb Found In Myrtle Beach

Well not quite.

Myrtle Beach Online

What turned out to be a weather device caused a temporary bomb scare at a Myrtle Beach pier this morning.

Myrtle Beach police closed a 600-yard radius of the beach at Pier 14 after someone walking on the beach reported seeing a metal box strapped to a pilon under the pier at 14th Avenue North, Myrtle Beach police Capt. David Knipes said.

Horry County's bomb squad blew the top off the box to reveal its contents: a device from the U.S. Geological Service that measures wave height and frequency, and storm surge.

Dozens of onlookers gathered along the beach to watch the scene unfold.

A worker said the Pier 14 restaurant was evacuated temporarily, but the business was open again by lunchtime.

Opps. I guess the USGS should have informed someone about the device.

One thing that people crib about most nowadays is hair loss. Be it the men or the women hair loss is a common trouble for all. Be it pollution, malnutrition, or heredity the number of people affected from hair loss is increasing continuously and at a rapid speed. Hair has from time immemorial been dubbed as an element of beauty especially for the women hence it is only normal that people panic at hair loss. But developing technology has now also made it possible that people have at least alternatives for hair loss.

Hey North Carolina . . .

Wanna BUY an old obsolete nuclear power plant? YES? OK, then, just VOTE for Obama.
The nuke industry is planning to build 29 new nukes. ONE of them in North Carolina.

(See Map at NY Times LINK: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/31/washington/31nuclear.html?_r=1&oref=slogin )
Excelon Corp, (largest nuke operator on the planet) headquartered in Illinois, has been one of Obama’s largest contributors ever since he first ran for office.
Obama voted FOR the Cheney Energy Bill of 2005 (H.R. 6) - which ENABLED the nuke industry to start planning to build nukes. (No new nukes have been built for the past 30 years because the banks would not loan the money - too risky.)
The Cheney Energy Bill solved that problem for them by GUARANTEEING Taxpayer PAYBACK of any of the nukes loans that default (The Congressional Budget Office rated the risk of default on the nuke loans at 50% or greater).
Here’s the kicker: Obama has been getting BILLIONS of Dollars worth of FREE Sales PROMOTION -Campaign HELP- From: NBC & MSNBC, and CBS … because GE owns NBC/MSNBC and Westinghouse owns CBS.
(If you check on the NY Times MAP you will see that GE & Westinghouse are planning to build the reactors at most of the planned nuke sites.)
That’s the reason WHY the media has been rabidly PUSHING to SELL you an Obama & slamming and smearing the Clintons on TV everyday.
COPY & PASTE and Pass the Word to everybody on your email list and to any blogs, TV, Radio, newspapers you can.
p.s. McCain is pro-nuke too & voted FOR the Cheney energy bill.

“GOING FROM COAL TO NUCLEAR IS LIKE GIVING UP CIGARETTES TO TAKE UP SMOKING CRACK”.
We Need NEW Clean Renewable CHEAPER DE-Centralized, off the Grid, NON-Monopoly energy.
