Mexican immigrants in NY
and NJ left homeless, jobless
in Superstorm Sandy’s aftermath

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 11/24/2012 8:20:26 PM

New York — Superstorm Sandy plunged some immigrants living illegally in the U.S. into darkness and even deeper into the shadows. Some of those who need help to get temporary housing and food are afraid to come forward because they risk deportation. And many have returned to damaged, powerless, moldy homes because they have no other place to stay. “My son has asthma and now he is worse. The house has this smell of humidity and sea water,” Mexican immigrant Miguel Alarcon Morales said while holding his 2-year-old son, Josias. “It is not safe to live there. I am starting

Comments:
But for the heartless/racist Republicans who´ve insisted on an open border and zero enforcement of immigration laws, these unfortunates would be free to venture from the shadows and receive the full array of welfare benefits they so richly deserve.

...immigrants living illegally in the U.S.

I might give the ass. press a little credit for using ´illegally´, but nope. They are illegal aliens. And little Josias wouldn´t be in this predicament if his papa hadn´t come to this country illegally.

Call it a hunch, but I bet the ass. pressers left out the fact the sad statement made by illegal alien Miguel was via a translator.

There is human suffering here and I don´t wish to take away from that fact. I do not advocate withholding help but it should be charitable help not taxpayer funded help. Moreover, if they are here illegally then they need to be deported. We, as a country, should be allowed to decide who we permit into our country - which is what we have done by having immigration laws. Simply put not everyone is welcome - no more than I would be allowed to walk into any house I saw that I liked without permission.

The Mexican Government should be providing travel tickets to all those illegal Mexicans so that they can go back to Mexico. If the Mexican Government did that, you would think that the US Immigration Authorities would cooperate.

It is just as likely that these illegals have come to the area AFTER Sandy, because they figured there would be handouts all around.

Off topic. This asinine article made so angry that I typed an ugly reply that I am ashamed of. At the last second it occurred to me that I was one mouse click away from a lifetime ban from this site. My famous temper is at the boiling point ever since election night when I became sick over the realization that over 50 percent of the voters are not willing to accept anything other than a welfare state. It required two strong prescription medications to keep me out of the hospital.

Even though it´s understood that It is irrational to make myself sick over events I cannot control, I did just that. Therefore, in the selfish interest of my health, my best option is a virtual news blackout, which includes a self imposed moratorium from this site.

So long.

Mexican´s may be some of the hardest working people to be found, but they are also totally indifferent to the law, and eager to ´get over on the system´!

´Officials from the Mexican government have visited shelters in New York and New Jersey looking for immigrants to help, informing them on how to obtain food stamps, financial assistance from FEMA or the Mexican government.´. Oh please, with the $180,000 the mexican government has available to help. why don´t they just send planes into the area take them back to Mexico. Why are they our problem?

Sometimes I wonder if articles like this are written with the intention to deliberately infuriate us. A thumb in our eye. Of course it is tragic when a family loses everything. But the illegals were not supposed to have anything here in the first place so it is difficult to work up any sympathy for their material losses. It is just stuff anyway.

And as to #22, I haven´t given up on 50% of my fellow Americans just yet. Perhaps they just wanted so badly to believe the fantasy, all warm puppies and happy happy, that they just could not bring themselves to give it up just yet. America in denial. No one wins elections by bursting that delusion, just like no one endears himself to his friend by informing him that his dream girlfriend is really a lying tramp. Chances are he won´t believe you anyway. Just like 50% of the electorate. Taking a long view lowers blood pressure.

The little woman tells the story of her parents who pulled their northern prairie life up by the roots and moved to AZ because a doctor told my father-in-law that the warm, dry air would help relieve her brother´s asthma. They spent nearly a year there and turns out that it may just have been allergies and they returned to SD.She doesn´t remember the Associated Press or even the Argus Leader seeking him out for a human interest, heroic victim story.

It´s just what you used to do in this country.

Number of NJ public retirees
with pension of at least 100K
climbs 75 percent in 3 years
Star-Ledger [Newark, NJ], by Jeff Goldman    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 2/24/2014 10:41:37 PM     Post Reply
In 2010, 992 retired New Jersey public employees pulled in a pension of at least $100,000 per year. By the end of 2013, that figure had swelled to 1,731 — an increase of about 75 percent. A new report from New Jersey Watchdog goes into detail on exactly who is getting a six-figure annual payout in retirement, although some still hold other tax-payer funded positions. The Watchdog report comes after it was revealed that the state´s pension fund is in a $47 billion hole. Two retirees are each receiving $195,000 per year — former Jersey City school superintendent Charles Epps and

The culture of corruption at the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corp. — alleged last week in a scathing 45-page report by the state comptroller — was apparently no secret to some in Newark’s political world. When queried by state investigators about payouts he received from the agency, one contractor said he was working on a local political campaign in 2008 and recalled the “buzz’ that had been circulating about NWCDC handing out contracts,” the report states. The contractor, Newark resident Edward McRae, discovered the buzz was no exaggeration. The report says McRae’s firm received nearly $390,000 in landscaping contracts from the

Novi Petrivtsi, Ukraine — The opulent residence of President Viktor Yanukovych has always been a closely guarded secret — and a symbol of the alleged corruption at Ukraine’s highest levels. On Saturday, after he fled the capital and its gates were thrown open, thousands streamed into the compound to get a first-hand look. Inside the walled compound known as Mezhyhirya, posh mansions stood amid manicured lawns. There were parks dotted with statues, ponds with fountains and wild ducks, a tennis court, a golf course and a colonnaded pavilion. As throngs of ordinary Ukrainians got their first look at Yanukovych’s luxurious estate, many

Lined up in the parking lot of the Mt. Brighton ski area last summer, rows of new, state-of-the-art snow-making equipment gave the place a military feel. They even call the huge, round fans that cool and crystallize droplets of water into snowflakes “guns.” The equipment, part of a $10 million renovation at the popular Livingston County ski area, is an investment in the future by its new owners, Colorado-based Vail Resorts.

Jayme Shannon, 51, of East Brunswick, was arrested on Oct. 14, 2013 after he allegedly transported a 15-year-old boy across state lines to the Skyview Motel in Fort Lee and had sex with him, U.S. Attorney Paul J.

At least three-quarters of the New Jerseyans who have selected health insurance through the federal marketplace website have followed through by paying their first month’s premium, according to the three companies selling the policies. The state’s rate of paying customers is in line with figures reported across the nation. The figures are seen by some as an important barometer of success in the opening months of coverage. Critics of the Affordable Care Act have noted that with each enrollment update, federal officials have not revealed how many of the enrollees took the next step in purchasing a policy.

KANSAS CITY, MO - Following Saturday´s disturbance on the Country Club Plaza, three teens were arrested and one juvenile was detained. While one mother is apologizing and asking for the public´s forgiveness, another teen arrested over the weekend remains unapologetic for his actions and says police racially profiled him.

US ranks low in first-ever global
index of LGBT inclusion in armed forces

Posted By: Ribicon- 2/20/2014 11:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The enduring ban on transgender individuals serving in the US military has earned America a low ranking in the first global league table of LGBT inclusion in the armed forces. The US is placed at number 40 in the table of 103 countries’ armed forces as measured by their inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender service members. That puts it behind the militaries of countries such as Chile, Georgia and even America’s bête noire, Cuba. The US armed forces in September 2011 repealed the controversial policy of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, which forced gay service members to hide their sexuality.

Morris County — Snow, ice and even some solar panels falling from public buildings in Morris County this week have forced officials to scramble to make new arrangements. The rain and freezing rain experienced on Tuesday caused a “weight shifting” on some of the solar canopies at the county’s Mennen Arena in Morris Township, resulting in a number of solar panels falling, said County Administrator John Bonanni. While no one was hurt, one vehicle was damaged, Bonanni said. Parking under the solar canopies at Mennen has been suspended until the solar contractor is able to remove all the snow and ice,

The study, Housing Landscape 2014, looked at the percentage of low- and moderate-income households that spent more than 50 percent of their income on housing. It found 30.8 percent of New Jersey households faced “a severe housing cost burden,” an increase of 1.4 percent from 2009. Only households in California found it more burdensome, with 32.3 percent of low- and moderate-income households spending more than half of their earnings on

In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed.

The Obama administration is launching an “attack” on the Medicare Advantage and Medicare Part D programs as part of Obamacare that will result in higher costs and fewer health care options for seniors, according to a U.S. House subcommittee. The administration is quietly introducing “policies that would undermine the integrity and success of the Medicare Part D program” according to the subcommittee. President Bush signed Medicare Part D into law in 2003 to subsidize prescription drug costs for Medicare beneficiaries. The Daily Caller has learned that the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health will hold a hearing Feb.

There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. (Snip) It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.
