Event Update For 2017-05-23

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2017-05-23 - Duplex damaged by explosion and fire just before 7 AM in Commerce City (Colorado), two girls injured:

Quote: "Xcel Energy is working with the investigation to find a cause and there are signs that it was something similar to methane gas, which can occur naturally from decomposition and other outlets. Traces of the gas are limited to immediately around the property. Tests have shown there is no gas line leak. Vincel said there is no crime or malicious activity tied to the explosion, nor are nearby homes in any danger."

Quote: "Fire investigators and Xcel Energy crews are at a duplex in Commerce City after an explosion and fire sent two girls to the hospital. The girls, whose ages are 15 and 11, were rushed to Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora after the blast. Their mother and father were home when the blast happened. They were not injured. Neighbors told CBS4 the girls were seriously burned. 'I saw the girls who had skin hanging off of their arms,' Randy Martinez, a neighbor, said."

Note: Just some methane getting into a home, exploding and burning the skin off some girls, nothing weird about that! This is the 162nd residential explosion in 2017...

The breakup happened faster and earlier than scientists had seen before, forcing them to cut short their research trip."

    Handout Nation: Combined Enrollment In America’s 4 Largest Safety Net Programs Hits A Record High Of 236 Million

    Margaret Thatcher once said that the problem with socialism “is that eventually you run out of other people’s money”.  As you will see below, the combined enrollment in America’s four largest safety net programs has reached a staggering 236 million.  Of course that doesn’t mean that 236 million people are getting benefits from the government each month because there is overlap between the various programs.  For example, many Americans that are on Medicaid are also on food stamps, and many Americans that are on Medicare are also on Social Security.  But even accounting for that, most experts estimate that the number of Americans that are dependent on the federal government month after month is well over 100 million.
