New York readies for Veterans
Day as region struggles

Reuters, by Edward Krudy

Original Article

Posted By:JackBurton, 11/11/2012 6:24:21 AM

New York City was preparing to stage its first major event since cancelling its annual marathon as thousands of victims of Superstorm Sandy continued to struggle with power outages, gasoline shortages and freezing weather conditions.Sunday's annual Veterans Day Parade is expected to attract crowds of over 600,000 people to central Manhattan and will be a test for a city still struggling to clean up after one of the worst natural disasters in the region's history.Thousands were in temporary shelters, and in New Jersey a tent city on the edge of Monmouth Park racetrack was home to hundreds.

Comments:
About a quarter million people are still without power... many have generators but gasoline deliveries have been slow and messed with by government. If the president were a Republican, you´d be hearing about this 24/7. Just sayin´.

New Yorkers are sending mixed messages. They vote in a democrat who wants to dismantle all that is American, and then wave American flags to celebrate their support.

The left ridiculed Bush´s FEMA trailers but I´ll bet a lot of these storm victims would give their eye teeth for one right now.

I also saw where they have to bring the military in to fix the electrical grid problems.Of course they´ll only make 10% of what the unionized electrical workers make in a time like this.

If the government needs to invest in infrastructure,it should start with a more secure electrical grid.You have Russian and Iranian subs that know exactly where to hit us to cause a national catastrophe and that doesn´t even include hacking into the software.

Trees are a menace but the tree huggers will never allow them to be cut down.

A couple years ago,Balto had a street Grand Prix race which was foolish itself but a couple people had the gall to cut a couple trees down and some leftists went nuts over it.

#1, the entire country is sending mixed messages this week. As a veteran, I always reflected on this day in particular as to the fruits of freedom that were harvested by those who served. This year, those fruits do not taste right.

Unfortunately as the majority of these storm victims are Democrats, this won´t be a learning experience for them. Their president was playing golf Saturday. What were they doing?

NY Metro area, no food, water, heat, shelter....while their messiah golfs.

Bloomingidiot planned for the marathon, and Cuomo spits meaningless anger that accomplishes nothing.

With the 51% low class slimy Marxist traitors who spit on our Constitution and the Uniform of all who served and those who died for this Country and chose to kiss Obama´s behind and voted for him, it´s hard to feel very patriotic today.

I´m thinking seriously if I see anyone who admits to voting for Obama I will spit on them as they have spit on our Constitution and my Uniform. Then they can get on their knees and thank their Allah that I didn´t shoot them.

Which brings up the question I´ve asked several times. If we shot and killed Communist in Korea, Communist in Vietnam, then why can´t we shoot the ones in the US? Please, don´t tell me it´s the law because the left wing communist/socialist are the biggest offender of disobeying the Constitution and the Law, and that includes the alleged illegal President.

I wonder why I ever volunteered to serve in the military for this country? Oh, yeah! That´s when Americans used to love this country, but now it has become an object of ridicule to the rest of the world. China used to refer to us as a "Paper Tiger", back when we had the ability and will to show them what were really were. But now, we aren´t even a paper tiger but a toilet tissue pussycat.
I am ashamed to call myself an American as long as these people remain in power.

Global Warming Alarmists Caught
Doctoring ´97-Percent Consensus´ Claims
Forbes, by James Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: jackburton- 3/12/2014 10:36:46 AM     Post Reply
Global warming alarmists and their allies in the liberal media have been caught doctoring the results of a widely cited paper asserting there is a 97-percent scientific consensus regarding human-caused global warming. After taking a closer look at the paper, investigative journalists report the authors’ claims of a 97-pecent consensus relied on the authors misclassifying the papers of some of the world’s most prominent global warming skeptics. At the same time, the authors deliberately presented a meaningless survey question so they could twist the responses...

The publishers Springer and IEEE are removing more than 120 papers from their subscription services after a French researcher discovered that the works were computer-generated nonsense. Over the past two years, computer scientist Cyril Labbé of Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France, has catalogued computer-generated papers that made it into more than 30 published conference proceedings between 2008 and 2013. Sixteen appeared in publications by Springer, which is headquartered in Heidelberg, Germany, and more than 100 were published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE),

Snowfall has been heavier than normal for southern and western Lower Michigan so far this season. However, snowfall has actually been lower than normal for northeast Lower Michigan and some of the Upper Peninsula. The winter snow pattern so far has been characterized by above normal lake effect snow in western Lower Michigan, and several strong system snows bringing heavy snow to the southern half of Lower Michigan. The Ann Arbor and Detroit areas are the farthest above normal with 42 inches in Ann Arbor

Williamsport, Pa. - A constant, mild hiss. That was my chief observation when I returned to Anadarko Petroleum’s Landon Pad A, a natural-gas site in Lycoming County, Pa. October’s quietude was totally unlike the cyclone of equipment, personnel, and activity that dominated this spot last June, when Anadarko and the American Petroleum Institute hosted journalists and policy analysts here. (Snip) The trucks have driven off. Dozens of workers have moved on. The cranes are gone. What remains are three acres of gravel-covered farmland, five completed wells, and a steady, low-volume whoosh.

Food stamp cuts create high
demand for food bank supplies
USA Today, by Marisol Bello    Original Article
Posted By: jackburton- 11/3/2013 11:10:01 AM     Post Reply
Food banks across the country, stretched thin in the aftermath of the recession, are bracing for more people coming through their doors in the wake of cuts to the federal food stamp program. Food stamp benefits to 47 million Americans were cut starting Friday as a temporary boost to the federal program comes to an end without new funding from a deadlocked Congress. Under the program, known formally as the Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program, or SNAP, a family of four that gets $668 per month in benefits will find that amount cut by $36.

Farmers can now produce more crops in an environmentally sustainable way at a lower cost thanks to the efforts of hundreds of scientists over the past half-century. Seeds are developed in a laboratory and then field tested to enhance nutritional value or resistance to drought, disease and herbicides. Genetically modified crops are now planted on nearly a quarter of the world´s farm land by some 17.3 million farmers. More than 90% of those farmers are smallholders who harvest a few acres in developing countries.

Fracturing in California

Few issues divide Democrats more than energy policy, as we´ve learned as unions and environmentalists fight over the Keystone XL pipeline. More evidence now comes from California, where greens have lost an attempt to ban oil and gas hydraulic fracturing. Democratic leaders brought their fracking moratorium bill to the Assembly floor last week, and their rank and file revolted. The bill lost 37-24, with 12 Democrats joining 25 Republicans to defeat it. Another 18 Democrats abstained, ...

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
