Despair deepens, transportation snarled
as Nor'easter strikes Sandy-blasted NYC

New York Post, by DANA SAUCHELLI,*

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/8/2012 8:43:30 AM

Despair deepened for thousands reeling from last week’s devastating Superstorm Sandy — as a nor’easter blew through the city yesterday with sleet, snow and gusting winds. Storm survivors from the Rockaways to Red Hook and Staten Island endured frigid temperatures in blacked-out homes with no heat — choosing not to evacuate and risk break-ins and looting. Temperatures hovered around the freezing mark through the night, with wind chills in the teens. “The wind, the snow and the cold is just rubbing salt in the wounds that were already open as a result of Sandy,” said AccuWeather meteorologist Erik Pindrock.

It's political climate change.

When it hits a southern city during a republican sdministration, the blame is on the president.

When it hits a northern city (in this case, one that is home to major news outlets) during a democrat administration, the blame is on Mother Nature.

Amazing, that this is an area of the country that votes liberal, I thought it was all us knuckle draggers that don't have a clue, when bad weather strikes we hear very little from the press about hardships. But now we hear about those poor liberals who are enduring cold afraid to leave their houses because of looting, break ins etc.

For those few I do care about in the Northeast, please stay safe and warm.

Yawn.
These people have all the infrastructure and government largesse and gun control and leadership they've always wanted and continued to elect.

Therefore, I'm sure everything will be taken care of as to their wishes. What could go wrong? Who am I to interfere? I'm kinda busy with important things to work on like saving the country ---from all of the above that these people have shoved down my throat. You're welcome.

Exhibit #63,419 of the failure of Democrat socialism. Notice how the people of Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, drew in a long breath and then put their noses to the grindstone and recovered with few whimpers from even more devastating hurricanes. The exception, of course, was New Orleans, solidly Democrat, which was encouraged to sit there helplessly in the mess for months and months while emitting one long media-amplified whine.

Cheer up, New Jerseyites and New Yorkers! By spring the Unionized utility workers may deign to get around to fixing your power and water systems! And don't try to defend yourselves from looters, you have no rights there. But you can warm yourselves in the thought that you put Barack Hussein Obama back in office.

I am on the horns of an ethical dilemma, and I hope y'all can help me out.........

With my own gas, I took MY generator to an old college friend in Spring Lake Heights. We hadn't talked in a rather long time, but I am a conservative so when I knew he'd be in distress I called.

Problem is, he is second generation Iron Worker Union leadership. I KNOW he voted for the Wan.

Do I go get my generator and tell him to call the Goobermint he so loves, and has IGNORED his area for almost 10 days now or just allow him to continue to 'prosper' on the fruits of my labor?

I am torn. He has kids, and no heat. But I can't help but think that if the kids are cold, they may remember how poorly served they were and mitigate some of Dad's unionism indoctrination........

I will be lectured about generosity and forgiveness by someone from the NYC area and they are right about that, but I really hope the creeps who determined that upstate and by upstate I mean north and west of Utica, NY state should just be cut off to wither away because they aren't capable of 'sustaining' themselves. First of all, quit heaping moronic NYC thought up demands on the rest of the state and we will be happy to be cut off from you. Second, good luck defending your self because I'm sick of urbanite sheeple lecturing me about firearms and their correct use or who should posses them.

If Romney had been elected, we would be in the "transition" phase of government, and Romney would be asking for help for these unfortunate double storm victims.

Obama will be on his way to Burma, etc., after he makes his no-questions-answered speech tomorrow.

When the Benghazi Inquisition begins in the House, and it all begins to hit the fan, these storm victims may think twice about their liberal voting habits, and hopefully, will turn on Obama and his treasonous minions.

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

Ed Snowden, Russian TV star,

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over
the problem with more money

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
