Satellite images of Joplin, Mo., before and after the tornado

When you click on the link above, you will see two photos that overlay exactly on top of each other that show the before and after of the Tornados that hit Joplin, Missouri. What is really amazing to me is the lack of green in the after picture.

I think anything green has been totally covered by the remains of people's homes and businesses that have been scattered throughout the entire region. Hundreds have been killed.

One young man was sucked out of the roof of the SUV his father was driving when the tornado overtook their car. I can't even fathom the shock of being lifted out of a moving car and then what???? Lifted up into the sky, twirled around, and where did he go? He hasn't been found.

Identifying the REAL ISSUES regarding Arnold Schwarzenegger's Secret Baby Caper.

Lets put to bed some of the non issues in regards to Arnold Schwarzenegger's secret baby.
The woman Arnold apparently had an affair with is apparently not as pretty as Maria Shriver. Who cares! It is completely irrelevant how pretty the person Arnold allegedly had an affair with, is, or was.
Other celebrities and politicians have had babies out of wedlock.
The difference appears to be not only the length of time that has elapsed has been a decade or longer, it's also that Arnold got to choose when to expose the secret. Arnold waited until AFTER he served his entire 8 year term as governor, so trying to say it's like other out of wedlock situations is not really accurate.
So what are some of the more germane issues?
The biggest one for me is if Arnold Schwarzenegger truly kept the pregnancy and the child a secret from Maria Shriver, while also allowing the person he allegedly had the affair with to keep working within the Schwarzenegger household for the next decade, he potentially endangered Maria Shriver's life.

Yes, Maria Shriver was at the mercy of a woman who could have snapped at any time over her desire for her son to have a real dad. The whole time that Shriver's rival was sizing her up in Shriver's home, Shriver didn't know there was a rivalry, and that is beyond deplorable.

In my opinion it's criminal behavior on Schwarzenegger's part to allow a secret love interest to actually prepare meals for Shriver, to possibly even have access to prescriptions as well. It also shows horribly bad, and ultra narcissistic behavior on Schwarzenegger's part if he never even considered that his wife could be in danger.

The second issue for me is that Arnold got to share his secret with the world on his own terms when he wasn't the only one that was affected. I think Arnold's calculating narcissism has already backfired on him. The fact that Arnold retained such control for so long might result in those who knew him, including political allies, friends, family and even fans, feeling trivialized.

Maria Shriver's embarrassing legacy of supporting men over women even as she holds her own annual women's empowerment conference.

To be fair to Maria Shriver, perhaps if she had known about Arnold Schwarzenegger's affair and secret baby years ago, maybe she doesn't publicly support Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton when she herself had acknowledged that both candidates were terrific.

Back when Arnold first ran for governor of California, one of his opponents was Arianna Huffington. So it comes as an interesting twist that twice now Maria Shriver has supported a male political candidate over an equally qualified female candidate that was also on the ballot.

Domestic Violence You Tube Video "Burn it Down" by OnaKalima has been taken down by YouTube!

Message from from the director and first time filmmaker Ona Kalima...

"Thank you for writing to me. I am in the middle of moving, but was getting ready to write to you for help. I received an email that stated that my video had been removed for violating the community guidelines. I looked to the guidelines and couldn't see any I had violated. HELP! We had gotten up to nearly 7,000 views and now we have to start from scratch. I was starting to receive a lot of hate-oriented comments about being a "communist dyke" and stuff like that--what do you think??"

DailyPUMA thinks the PUMA community needs to contact YouTube. Suggestions for the best avenue to do this would be greatly appreciated. What is worse than images depicting violence against woman? Striking down a message about Violence against Woman. Shame on you YouTube for not having more common sense.

PLEASE FAX YouTUBE at 1-650-253-0001 and ask that OnaKalima's "Burn it Down" video be reinstated.

All in the Family and Archie Bunker's Place.

All in the Family ran from 1971 to 1979 and featured Jean Stapleton and Carroll O'Connor as the wife and husband. All in the Family ended its run in 1979 but the show continued under the name Archie Bunkers Place, which then ran from 1979 to 1983. In the new version, Jean Stapleton has died and Archie Bunker now runs a bar.

In real life, Carroll O'Connor passed on in 2001, Jean Stapleton is still alive.

I saw Jean Stapleton in a movie last night called "A Matter of Sex". A Matter of Sex is a modern day (early 80's) suffragettes movie revolving around 8 women who went on strike because their bank would not promote them or pay them in line with their male counterparts.

Suddenly I saw the additional irony being played out in real life.

Jean Stapleton, who is still alive, was killed off in Archie Bunker's Place, whereas Carroll O'Connor, who passed on in 2001, outsurvived Jean Stapleton in the television show.

In fact, Carroll O'Connor would get another television series as well. However, Jean Stapleton could never use her famous character Edith because Edith had been killed off.

This is another example of a male getting to prolong and extend his career while the woman co-star role is prematurely snuffed out and can no longer be used by her for the rest of her career.
