New York City Hits Sandy
Victims With ‘Failure To Maintain’
Property Citation

CBS [New York], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 12/5/2012 2:44:45 PM

Residents in one Queens neighborhood are crying foul after they were written up for failing to clean up the city’s own mess. It is yet another new complication in life after Superstorm Sandy. Rosanne and Joe Cavaliere are still trying to clean up from the hurricane. They have branches through their roof, busted front windows, and, to add insult to injury, they recently received a citation notice from the city. (Snip)But as they pointed out to CBS 2’s Schneider on Tuesday night, it’s a city tree that they were waiting for the city to remove.

Pretty sure some of the crews from Alabama and Georgia who went up to help, and were turned away for being nonunion, would have had the tree out of there in just a few hours. Just saying.

Let´s see. They could have cut the tree up for firewood but the chain saw would have violated the noise ordinance. Another fine. They could have burned it but that would violate no burning and other ordinances. More fines. They could try pouring acid over it but that would be pollution. Yet another fine. They could drag it into the street but that would be causing an obstruction. Probably a misdemeanor fine. I guess these poor people at least know now the meaning of the old expression "between a rock and a hard place." But they´ll vote Democ rat again.

Don´t laugh # 2 - just touching a downed tree in NY will get the greenie weenies after you and a fine. Can´t touch those old and rotting trees since trees live forever, until they don´t.

Mayor for Life Mike wants to plant a milion trees in NYC. (How many leaves are on a million trees??? Are those leaves in the storm drains??)

Since more people were killed by falling trees from Sandy than anything else, shouldn´t he be rethinking that plan?

And as the story says, no fines (YET!) they´re still trying to figure a way though!

Perhaps the inspectors have a citation quota and intend to meet it. Can´t let a storm interfere with career goals.

Nonsense. Their homeowner´s coverage would cover their home for a falling or windblown object that damages their place. That would remove the tree to the property line.

In response to Russia´s recent actions in Ukraine, the U.S. military will send about 600 soldiers to several nations on the Baltic Sea for training and exercises over the next week. The first company of soldiers (members of the 173rd Airborne Brigade) will arrive in Poland on Wednesday, officials said. Three additional company-size units will deploy to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania for similar infantry training and exercises. They will be in place in all four countries over the next week. Pentagon spokesperson Rear Admiral John Kirby said the bilateral exercises were a result of Russia´s actions in Ukraine. Kirby added

Russia hit back at tough talk by Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday, saying it could cope if the White House imposed further sanctions over its actions in Ukraine. "We shan´t give up on cooperation with foreign companies, including from Western countries, but we will be ready for unfriendly steps," Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev told the Russian parliament. "I am sure we can minimize their impact," he said, according to a translation by the Reuters news agency. "We will not allow our citizens to become hostages of political games." Medvedev said that some Russian banks had been affected in

Kerry: ´It was easier´ in Cold War

Washington - Secretary of State John Kerry attested Tuesday to the massively complex challenges Washington faces in Ukraine, Russia, Iran and the Middle East, declaring "it was easier" during the Cold War. In a candid moment during a State Department speech, the top US diplomat said changing global power dynamics made a quaint memory of the early East-West stalemate, when American children would "crouch under our desks at school and practice" safety steps for a possible nuclear attack. "During the Cold War... it was easier than it is today -- simpler is maybe a way to put it," Kerry

Vice President Joe Biden has been speaking in Ukraine on the second day of a trip where he is showing support to the nation´s fledgling pro-Western government. In an address in Kiev on Tuesday, Biden repeated a U.S. call for Russia to pull back its military from Ukraine´s borders. (Snip) But Biden said that while the U.S. was prepared to support Ukraine in its attempts to secure a unified country, he urged Ukrainians to "fight the cancer of corruption that is endemic in your system right now."

Thawing out: Warmer Temperatures
Lift US Economy
Associated Press, by Paul Wiseman & Josh Bock    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/21/2014 5:10:21 PM     Post Reply
Spring´s thaw is reviving the economy, too. A recent batch of government and business reports show a U.S. economy emerging from winter´s deep freeze. Economists had expected the growth to accelerate in 2014 after two years of slow and steady improvement. But an unusually bitter winter sent factories, hiring and consumer spending into hibernation. Now, as temperatures rise, the economy is regaining momentum. (Snip) Shopping has also recovered along with temperatures. Total U.S. retail sales rose last month by 1.1 percent, led by purchases of autos and furniture. Consumers account for about 70 percent of all economic activity, making them

Anger is brewing among service members and veterans groups after the publication of a New York Times op-ed that tries to link veterans and white supremacists. The piece came just days after a 73-year-old white supremacist and veteran, Frazier Glenn Miller, was arrested in an attack that killed three people at a Jewish center in Overland Park, Kansas. In the column, op-ed contributor Kathleen Belew writes: In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a nine-page report detailing the threat of domestic terrorism by the white power movement. This short document outlined no specific threats, but rather a set of

Maryland health officials are investigating possible cases of food poisoning at what may be the worst-ever venue — a gathering of government and industry leaders attending a national Food Safety Summit. At least four people called the Baltimore City Health Department this week to report that they developed diarrhea, nausea and other symptoms about 12 hours after eating a meal April 9 during the conference at the Baltimore Convention Center. That was midway through the annual meeting held April 8 to 10 that attracted more than 1,500 food safety professionals, including staff from federal agencies as well as businesses such

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives
