Christie orders Halloween
in N.J. postponed until Monday

Star-Ledger [Newark, NJ], by Christopher Baxter

Original Article

Posted By:rinohunter, 10/31/2012 12:41:03 PM

Trenton — Gov. Chris Christie today signed an executive order to postpone Halloween until Monday because of unsafe conditions throughout New Jersey in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. “In too many communities in our state, the damage and losses from this storm are still being sorted out, and dangerous conditions abound even as our emergency management and response officials continue their work," Christie said in a statement. The governor has said for a few days he would probably issue the order, even joking that he might reschedule it for Election Day.

Comments:
Krispy Kreme Christie must have some arterial disease in his fat head to even consider doing this! Too much buttercreme in the diet I would guess.

Please split long headlie & post source to site style [w/ city/state]. LCom Staff.

You want kids walking over downed trees and power lines on streets with no lights? Right decision.

Christie did in fact joke about postponing it till election day, according to the article.

This is a good move. I wouldn't want my kids running around flooded streets with downed live power lines.

I didn't realize Halloween was a federal or state holiday... It should be up to mayors and neighborhood associations to do this. While I agree that trick or treating around floodwaters etc probably isn't the best idea, how is this any business of the governor?

This guy is a hair's breadth from being a RINO.

How about letting parents, families, communities, decide such things?

Oh yeah, and Springsteen sucks.

From the governor who made it a point to compliment the President for DOING HIS JOB.
Obviously Christie was shocked that the president actually did ANYTHING. Signing a piece of paper for each State that is mandated a disaster area was quite a feat for a President who cannot make up his mind about
which song to listen to on his Ipod. Today he will do a celebrity tour in NJ with his normal retinue of vehicles and agents just so that no recovery work can be accomplished.

Do the kids even have to go trick or treating this year? It would not hurt them to miss one year. I did not realize it was a mandatory national function.

Gov Christie forgot the word CANCEL. Unless he knows when all recovery work will be completed, the Holiday should be CANCELLED. Obviously he is too excited that he is getting exposure with the President.

We don't need Billy's and Marys tripping over branches and suing home owners and munipalities. In rare instances, I don't have a problem with the government making a decision for the "greater good" postponing a night of free candy isn't going to hurt anyone.

14 - some parents, yes. As my mom would have said, they haven't the brains God gave a billy goat.

If your neighborhood is relatively undamaged and mom/dad aren't otherwise occupied with pumping out the basement, why can't the neighbors organize a kid's party? Take all the candy to one site - do a trunk trick or treat. There's ways around most anything. Or - wonder of wonders - just don't do it this year!!!

Too bad Christie can't order Halloween postponed permanently and in all 50 states. Fake "holiday." Mindless, godless,soulless, hedonistic. It really gives me a lot of confidence that my money is being handled professionally when I walk into a bank and the teller is in some idiotic costume.

Poster 16's post is very funny. I agree. Halloween is one of the most useless events. Parents need to do better at teaching protocol too. I don't turn on my outside lights and I don't have any goblins, skeletons, or skulls in my yard, yet I still get knocks on my door by middle school age children. Happens every single year.

They could've held a nice big Halloween party for the kids at a hall that was easy to get to or a school gym. Have all the parents take the candy they would've given out and set up tables around and let the kids have at it. Oh well, Gov. Christie loves making big decisions and this was just another one of 'em.

Great decision, thinking of the safety of the children of his state first. To most children Halloween is a holiday as important as Christmas and Easter. I hope they have much of the power back on in New Jersey by Monday.

This might just set a bad precedent. Now Obama will say postponing the election, for any reason he can think of, is justifiable as big Chris did it to Halloween.

Pointing fingers is fair game for Obama Inc., just change out the names from Bush to Christie and the highly adaptable blame game is accomplished.

Obama: "The new date of the election will be announced, just as soon as the polls get back to acceptable ratios of ie Obama 52, Romney 47(hint hint citizens and Rasmussen, et)". In other words, NEVER!

A child whose parents were stopped from letting their child trick or treat down flooded or powerline-strewn streets, only by the declaration of big daddy government, were probably going to lose their child anyway under the rules of the Darwin Award.

Little kids shouldn't be deprived of this, and they can't go out trick or treating in this vile weather with floods and downed power lines.

Christie made the right call.

The Secret Bailout That Saved Romney

Mitt Romney likes to say he won't "apologize" for his success in business. But what he never says is "thank you" – to the American people – for the federal bailout of Bain & Company that made so much of his outsize wealth possible. According to the candidate's mythology, Romney took leave of his duties at the private equity firm Bain Capital in 1990 and rode in on a white horse to lead a swift restructuring of Bain & Company, preventing the collapse of the consulting firm where his career began. When The Boston Globe reported on the rescue at the time of his Senate run against Ted Kennedy,

That's according to a new study published on Thursday by researchers at Washington University in St. Louis. The project gave free birth control to more than 9,000 local women and girls, many of whom were poor or uninsured, and tracked them for two years. There were 6.3 births per 1,000 teenagers in the study group, compared to the 2010 national rate of 34 per 1,000. As for abortions, there were fewer than eight per 1,000 women in the study, compared with the almost 20 per 1,000 nationally.

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

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

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

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
