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?

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.

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 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.

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, ...

Let’s lay out a hypothetical scenario. An American walks into a mosque during Ramadan, opens fire while quoting Bible passages and then leaves behind a Bible. On a scale of 1 to non-stop coverage, how often do you think you would be hearing about it, how fast would religious motives be attached to it and how quickly would we learn that the bible was left behind? But the same rules don’t apply to Islam.

U.K. stocks retreated, sending the FTSE 100 Index (UKX) lower for a second day, after the euro area forced Cyprus to adopt an unprecedented levy on bank deposits, threatening to reignite the region’s debt crisis. Barclays Plc (BARC) and Prudential Plc (PRU) led a selloff in financial firms, both falling at least 2.5 percent. Eurasian Natural Resources Corp. fell with mining companies as base metals declined and a newspaper said the company may write down more than $1 billion this week.

Hostility has been mounting this week in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, after two plainclothes police officers fatally shot 16-year-old Kimani Gray after he allegedly pointed a revolver at them on Saturday night. On Monday a group of about 130 people were marching toward the 67th Police Precinct station when about two dozen young protesters splintered off — drawing riot police — and trashed a Rite Aid. Tuesday the crowd was mostly calm, but on Wednesday — the same day Gray´s autopsy showed he had been shot seven times ...

Seconds after University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman banged the gavel to start Thursday´s Board of Regents meeting, the first student stood up. Freshman Daniel Morales took off his shirt to unveil a yellow T-shirt underneath. He took a piece of red tape and put it across his mouth.

Post Thanksgiving ruminations and ruinations ... Question: When is it better to earn $29,000 than to earn $69,000? Answer: When you’re a single mom living in Pennsylvania. Why? Because, thanks to our generous welfare system, a single mom makes out better that way. When all the benefits are added up, the lower-paid single mom qualifies to receive $57,327 in net income and benefits, while the mom who earns $69,000 ends up with a net income and benefits of $57,045.

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

ASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says a gay University of Missouri football player is “an inspiration to all of us.” The first lady took to Twitter on Monday to comment on Michael Sam, the all-American college player who announced Sunday that he is gay. Mrs. Obama says she “couldn’t be prouder” of Sam’s courage, both on and off the field. The tweet was signed “-mo,” which is how the White House marks messages personally sent by the first lady. Sam could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL. He’s scheduled to participate in the league’s weeklong scouting camp, where potential draftees

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she´s considering a presidential bid in 2016. In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen. Rand Paul is tops among Alaska Republicans at 15 percent followed by Palin, who is tied with Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent; Jeb Bush at 12 percent, Mike Huckabee, 11 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring.
