Mark Levin: Airport Bookstores Refuse To Carry My Book ‘Unfreedom Of The Press,’ Michael Van Der Galien, PJ Media

CS Commentary: Airports are many times controlled by cities (or commissions appointed by cities), which are largely run by Democrats, which is, partially at least, why you have to put up with exclusive CNN broadcasts (the Counterfeit News Network), and idiotic scenarios like the one above in Reagan and Atlanta and other airports across the nation.

Why San Francisco Is A Nightmare, According To Science, Brueck, Business Insider

Quote: “In 2007, the USGS determined that there was about a “63% probability of a magnitude 6.7 or greater earthquake in the Bay Area” by 2037…recently estimated that more than 100 of the city’s tallest buildings (higher than 22 stories) have been built in areas with a “very high” chance of liquefaction in an earthquake…[SF is sinking] The natural caving-in process at work is called “subsidence,” and it’s happening because the city is built on heaps of trash and Holocene-era mud that’s slipping away.“
