Non-Union Workers Excluded
from Hurricane Sandy Cleanup

National Review Online, by Eliana Johnson

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/19/2013 5:51:11 AM

In New Jersey, where Governor Chris Christie has said that relief measures for Hurricane Sandy should be “above politics,” non-union workers are now excluded from participating in cleanup and rebuilding efforts. That policy took effect when the New Jersey state senate voted on Monday to expand an existing labor-agreement law that has been on the books since 2002. According to the Jersey Journal, highways, bridges, pumping stations, and water and sewage treatment plants were not covered under the existing law, but the new bill includes them:

Of course,government infrastructure is covered by Bacon davis which the GOPs should have pushed to waive in the money. Bush waived Bacon davis for katrina money.

Even under Bacon Davis on fed infrastructure,the gov´t is supposed to give small business 28% of the business,under a law written in the early 50´s.Obama has ignored this law since being in office

Unions getting all this work means recovery will take several times as long to get done and refill depleted union coffers.

This sandy money could have spurned a huge economic growth factor but not with the unions sucking up all the work.

This is a battle Christie should have fought, and it will come back to bite him in the future.

Congress should immediately repeal the money they just allotted to Sandy recovery. Until all qualified workers are allowed to assist with the recovery the only taxpayer funds that should be allowed are those collected for the people in the states affected.

Only union workers to do the work equals three times the cost and three times the time involved. But since it´s taxpayers money footing the tab, who cares. Right Christie?

Chris Christie is a political whore and a RINO. He needs to switch parties because he is an excellent Democrat:

1) Embracing the Marxist Obama in the last week of the 2012 campaign.
2) Excorciating House Republicans for not passing $60 billion in graft for his home state (all added to the national debt).
3) Attacking the Republican Speaker of the House on a constant basis.

Chris Christie is exactly what we don´t need in the Republican party. He is Howard Taft without the intellect. Another fat slob politician who cuts deals with Democrats to perpetuate the status quo.

Democrats have declared total war and are waging it enthusiastically. Obama and his supporters intend to impoverish and render impotent each and every opponent and each and every financial contributer to Republican causes. Our numbers will more and more diminish while conservative calls for decisive and powerful resistance become more and more impossible of implementation. What to do? Well, the least we can do is to stop beating up people who can´t do what we want them to do. Christie is not one of them and I wouldn´t cut him any slack. I was never a "Christie for President" person as I am not that impetuous but I once had an open mind on him.

When Oprah Winfrey served on a Chicago jury in 2004, she couldn’t go to the bathroom attached to the jury room unless her fellow jurors sang to drown out the noise. One of the songs they sang was Kumbaya. When Alexis Sanchez used the bathroom in her college dorm, she brought her iPod with her. “I would blast it,” she says. “I would play ´D. A. N. C.

Yes, it’s a bit early to talk about the 2016 election. It’s just too much fun not to do it. You’re welcome. With about 20 months to go before the Iowa precinct caucuses, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul lead the pack for the Republican presidential nomination. Meanwhile, former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton continues to hold a huge lead among Democrats, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Three possible GOP candidates capture double-digit support among self-identified Republicans: Christie receives 15 percent, which puts him just ahead of Bush and

Long time home schooling leader and former Boerne church official Doug Phillips is fighting back today against allegations raised by his former nanny that he ´groomed her to be his sex object.´ "This more seems like an attempt to kill a Christian movement than it does just as an attack against Doug Phillips," Jason Jakob, who is Phillips´ attorney, tells 1200 WOAI´s Michael Board. The plaintiff, Lourdes Torres, claims in her lawsuit that Phillips forced her into a relationship which featured frequent sexual assault, imprisonment, and participation in deviant sexual activity.

Washington -- Louisiana Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu is in the middle of a storm. She is beset by well-funded forces on the right who sense the Gulf Coast Democrat´s vulnerability in trying to defend a Senate seat in a red state. On the left, she is trying to avoid being pulled down by the undertow of a president whose decline in approval ratings and controversial health care reform law might not play well with her state´s conservative sensibilities. She´s been buffeted by rough re-election fights before, and in previous successful bids for the state legislature, state treasurer´s office and eventually

Fugitive Victor Arden Barnard, 52, is believed to be somewhere near Seattle or Tacoma, authorities said. A nationwide warrant has been issued for his arrest. The self-proclaimed "messiah" ran a compound in Minnesota´s northern Pine County, where ministered to a group of women and girls he referred to as "maidens."

Barack Obama called House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on Wednesday morning to discuss immigration. Following their conversation, Cantor issued a statement. THIS is what we need to hear more of from our Republican representatives: “Today, President Obama called me to discuss his desire for comprehensive immigration reform.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

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

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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
