A tropical storm forced the Republican National Convention to be postponed, but thousands of protesters didn't let a little rain stop them from rallying in Tampa, Florida Monday morning to voice their grievances against the GOP.
Demonstrators from across the country gathered in downtown Tampa early Monday , where they then marched around the city's streets chanting messages for the Republican Party.
GOP leaders will convene later this week at the convention, where they are expected to formally nominate Mitt Romney to challenge incumbent Barack Obama during November's presidential election.

From August 13th to August 21th 2012 -
a very HUGE strange glowing object passed the sun!
This object is SO HUGE and its not a known planet
in the solar system neither its a comet or anything else
i have ever seen around the sun.
As you can see it has a glowing gas like sphere around it 
and it looks like its shape is changing.
In the last part you can also see that a cme hits it and 
it becomes more glowing and more amazing.
Does anybody has an answer on what it is ???

It's 'crunch time' for Greece right now - the German leader and French president are working out whether to grant Athens the 'breathing space' it says it needs to sort its finances out.

The country's been relying on international loans for over two years, but is struggling to meet its bailout conditions.

Meanwhile, Chancellor Merkel's allies in Berlin say 'a Greek exit wouldn't have a 'great impact' on the Eurozone'.

Investment advisor Patrick Young says, whether on not Greece is provided with more time, there's no chance it'll manage to get its economy back on track within the Eurozone.


Romney's Death Squad Ties: Bain Launched With Funds From Oligarchs Behind Salvadoran Murders

Published on Aug 10, 2012 by democracynow - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is facing new scrutiny over revelations he founded the private equity firm Bain Capital with investments from Central American elites linked to death squads in El Salvador. After initially struggling to find investors, Romney traveled to Miami in 1983 to win pledges of $9 million, 40 percent of Bain's start-up money. Some investors had extensive ties to the death squads responsible for the vast majority of the tens of thousands of deaths in El Salvador during the 1980s.


We're joined by Huffington Post reporter Ryan Grim, who connects the dots in his latest story, "Mitt Romney Started Bain Capital With Money From Families Tied To Death Squads." "There's no possible way that anybody in 1984 could check out these families -- which was the term that [Romney's campaign] used -- and come away convinced that this money was clean," Grim says.
