    Earthquake Shakes Chicagoland

    Earthquake Shakes Chicagoland A 3.8 magnitude earthquake rattled Chicago-area homes early Wednesday, waking up residents from Indiana to Wisconsin. The quake struck at 3:59 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    "It shook the house, rattled the windows and doors," viewer John Bruno wrote in an email. "It woke us out of a sleep and got the dog barking! It shook our whole house!"

    The tremor's epicenter was determined to be in a farm field on Plank Road near Hampshire, Illinois. The quake was originally reported as a 4.3 magnitude tremor emanating from Geneva, about five miles east of Sycamore, but the U.S. Geological Survey revised its statement.
    The reason for the quake is obvious. Citing that famous geologist Hugo Chavez, PhD (Piled Higher and Deeper), it's clear Mother Earth was punishing Obama's hometown because the Senate postponed a global warming conference because of the snow and cold.

    Pat Robertson said the Haiti quake was Heavenly payback for the slaves gaining their self determination over the French 104 years ago with the help of a deal with the Devil.

    The quantity of people involved when comparing the Slaves in Haiti and the Population that votes for Obama along with the time line, makes the quake in Chicago less likely to be about Obama.

    We could try to tie it to the HARRP project in ALASKA and blame it on Sarah Palin supporters. Now this explain it.

    Oh that's right it was only a 3.8. Hell we have had 3 quakes of 3.5, 4.3 and 4.3 quakes in the past 5 months but some might say they are clearly the result of the Lords payback for allowing Peolsi, Boxer, and Feinstein stay in office.
    Or there is a possibility however remote they are the result of normal seismic activity caused by the San Andreas Fault being 6 miles from us here in California or elsewhere by Volcanic activities coming from the center of the Earth where Al Gore tells us it's 1,000,000 degrees.

    Maybe there was so much snow it caused the weight of it to push so hard the ground had to shake.

    Haha. You're insane. Not the bad kind of insane. The Crazy-Eyes type of insane.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Yeah, but who listens to crackpot Baptist TV preachers?

    Not really we can't. The only people more crackpot than Baptist TV preachers are people who think HAARP is going to destroy the world.

    I think it's kind of unlikely that the Chicago quake in the OP is related to the San Andreas fault.

    A pissed Gaia is a more likely cause.

Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    And the hurricane epidemic in 2006 was because the Lord was pissed that Americans reelected Bush. Or, just maybe, it could be that lots of natural events happen all the time, in fact so many of them happen, that it is easy to cherry pick a few and blame them on someone, or something.

    Damn, its a good thing they burned witches in Salem, Massachusetts, or the entire United States would have been wiped out by a meteor before it even existed. Praise Jesus.

    I grew up in Missouri, where we still haven't forgotten about the New Madrid quake. It's not clear if this quake originated from the same fault or a nearby one. However, jokes about quakes in the midwest actually downplay something that could be a serious issue...

    A 6-7 magnitude quake in the midwest would cause major death and destruction that would make a hurricane look minor.

    Scared the **** out of my dog. I would've slept through it if not for that.

    Maybe it's the Earth punishing dogs that have owners who didn't vote for Obama?
