Despair deepens, transportation snarled
as Nor'easter strikes Sandy-blasted NYC

New York Post, by DANA SAUCHELLI,*

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/8/2012 8:43:30 AM

Despair deepened for thousands reeling from last week’s devastating Superstorm Sandy — as a nor’easter blew through the city yesterday with sleet, snow and gusting winds. Storm survivors from the Rockaways to Red Hook and Staten Island endured frigid temperatures in blacked-out homes with no heat — choosing not to evacuate and risk break-ins and looting. Temperatures hovered around the freezing mark through the night, with wind chills in the teens. “The wind, the snow and the cold is just rubbing salt in the wounds that were already open as a result of Sandy,” said AccuWeather meteorologist Erik Pindrock.

It's political climate change.

When it hits a southern city during a republican sdministration, the blame is on the president.

When it hits a northern city (in this case, one that is home to major news outlets) during a democrat administration, the blame is on Mother Nature.

Amazing, that this is an area of the country that votes liberal, I thought it was all us knuckle draggers that don't have a clue, when bad weather strikes we hear very little from the press about hardships. But now we hear about those poor liberals who are enduring cold afraid to leave their houses because of looting, break ins etc.

For those few I do care about in the Northeast, please stay safe and warm.

These people have all the infrastructure and government largesse and gun control and leadership they've always wanted and continued to elect.

Therefore, I'm sure everything will be taken care of as to their wishes. What could go wrong? Who am I to interfere? I'm kinda busy with important things to work on like saving the country ---from all of the above that these people have shoved down my throat. You're welcome.

Exhibit #63,419 of the failure of Democrat socialism. Notice how the people of Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, drew in a long breath and then put their noses to the grindstone and recovered with few whimpers from even more devastating hurricanes. The exception, of course, was New Orleans, solidly Democrat, which was encouraged to sit there helplessly in the mess for months and months while emitting one long media-amplified whine.

Cheer up, New Jerseyites and New Yorkers! By spring the Unionized utility workers may deign to get around to fixing your power and water systems! And don't try to defend yourselves from looters, you have no rights there. But you can warm yourselves in the thought that you put Barack Hussein Obama back in office.

I am on the horns of an ethical dilemma, and I hope y'all can help me out.........

With my own gas, I took MY generator to an old college friend in Spring Lake Heights. We hadn't talked in a rather long time, but I am a conservative so when I knew he'd be in distress I called.

Problem is, he is second generation Iron Worker Union leadership. I KNOW he voted for the Wan.

Do I go get my generator and tell him to call the Goobermint he so loves, and has IGNORED his area for almost 10 days now or just allow him to continue to 'prosper' on the fruits of my labor?

I am torn. He has kids, and no heat. But I can't help but think that if the kids are cold, they may remember how poorly served they were and mitigate some of Dad's unionism indoctrination........

I will be lectured about generosity and forgiveness by someone from the NYC area and they are right about that, but I really hope the creeps who determined that upstate and by upstate I mean north and west of Utica, NY state should just be cut off to wither away because they aren't capable of 'sustaining' themselves. First of all, quit heaping moronic NYC thought up demands on the rest of the state and we will be happy to be cut off from you. Second, good luck defending your self because I'm sick of urbanite sheeple lecturing me about firearms and their correct use or who should posses them.

If Romney had been elected, we would be in the "transition" phase of government, and Romney would be asking for help for these unfortunate double storm victims.

Obama will be on his way to Burma, etc., after he makes his no-questions-answered speech tomorrow.

When the Benghazi Inquisition begins in the House, and it all begins to hit the fan, these storm victims may think twice about their liberal voting habits, and hopefully, will turn on Obama and his treasonous minions.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Steve Huber, an affable salesman who is still paying off an unexpected medical bill, was not among the millions of Americans who signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act during the enrollment period that ended March 31. After seeing television ads for Kentucky’s new online insurance marketplace, Mr. Huber, 57, made several attempts to explore the website but found it too complicated. Moreover, his income has dropped in recent years, he said, and he felt certain that he could not afford coverage. So he never priced plans or researched whether he qualified for financial assistance. “I

When it comes to immigration, many Republican members of the House have long distrusted their leader, Speaker John Boehner. Now, things have gotten even worse. Boehner has assured members who oppose comprehensive immigration reform that nothing will be done on the issue until the Obama administration "can be trusted to enforce our laws." Given the average GOP Congressman´s view of Barack Obama, that means "never." That´s certainly how many members interpreted the speaker´s words.

Vice President Joe Biden is warning his Democratic base to drop the apathy and pledge to vote in the fall midterms or see the administration´s achievements like Obamacare get sunk by a Republican majority in the House and Senate. He headlined his latest scare-mail “If we lose,” and warned that the GOP will pass the tough budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan, and repeal Obamacare. “If Republicans hold on to their majority in the House and win back control of the Senate in November -- and believe me, that´s a real possibility -- then I can guarantee you that we´ll

Easter services today are expected to kick off a record-breaking week at the Vatican. Two beloved modern popes — John Paul II and John XXIII — are to be canonized at the Vatican next Sunday by Pope Francis. There will be services all week, which could draw the most pilgrims ever to the Catholic capital. John Paul II is remembered for helping to bring down communism and for inspiring a generation of Catholics. Many now call him “The Great,” only the fourth pope to have earned the moniker.

U.S. Attorney General Holder was clearly inferring racism especially given the room at the National Action Network which included one of America´s top race baiters, Al Sharpton. Democrats are pushing a racism narrative in a cynical, divisive election year political ploy. They want to paint Republicans as someone to run away from. In the last week we see a pattern of top Democrats playing the race card expertly as they always do. As reported in the Daily Caller On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented,

Michael Lewis’s latest best-seller, Flash Boys, released on March 31, depicts what he describes as the latest financial outrage in a “story of scandals… linked together tail to trunk like circus elephants.” This time it’s high-frequency trading, the use of algorithms and super-fast computing that allows stock trades to be executed automatically in a matter of milliseconds. Lewis argues that many high-frequency trading firms make money by essentially trading in front of large orders that they can see coming in before anyone else, thanks to super-fast data connections with stock exchanges.

Dozens of suspected al Qaeda fighters have been killed in the latest in a string of strikes against the terror organization’s Yemen affiliate over the weekend, Yemeni officials say, just days after the affiliate released a video of a large daytime militant rally. A Yemeni official with the Supreme Security Committee told ABC News overnight that on April 19, an American drone strike took out 10 members of al Qaeda but also killed three civilians who were nearby. The civilians “were in a pickup truck that suddenly appeared next to the car that was targeted,” the official said. The next day the

Obama Handles Russia Like Republicans:

President Obama came to office nursing dreams "of forging a new partnership" with a stubborn rival. When times got tough, he abandoned the relationship and adopted dusty zero-sum gain policies of his predecessors. To allies and rivals alike, he looks naïve, weak, and disconnected. This is the portrait presented Sunday by Peter Baker in his front-page New York Times story titled, "In Cold War Echo, Obama Strategy Writes Off Putin." What struck me about the piece is the unstated parallel between Obama´s handling of Russia and Republicans, and how in both cases the gap between promise and performance illustrates a fundamental

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today.

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.

Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts.

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.

Suppose a scientific conference on cancer prevention never addressed smoking, on the grounds that in a free society you can´t change private behavior, and anyway, maybe the statistical relationships between smoking and cancer are really caused by some other third variable. Wouldn´t some suspect that the scientists who raised these claims were driven by something—ideology, tobacco money—other than science? Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent
