Cold, Dark and Damp, Pockets

New York Times, by Michael Wilson

In Coney Island, a 67-year-old man sleeps with plastic bottles from the bodega, filled with hot water, tucked in his armpits. Toilets unflushed by modern means for a fortnight have created a stench in the Rockaways that is so bad that one man keeps incense burning in his apartment day and night. On Staten Island, people sit in “warming buses,” cozy and, like time itself these days, going nowhere. In a town in New Jersey where wells do not pump because the power is out, residents collect rainwater in empty

Relax the government will fix it. Security problem? Call a cop. Government is a hell of a lot better at intruding on your individual freedoms than it is at providing help in times of trouble. The Constitution is a whole lot smarter than the folks taking away its authority.

Oh but Skippy looked so good in his bomber jacket when he dropped in to console the victims. They were so comforted that they voted in droves for him. Now that he doesn´t need them anymore, they can rot.

Just read an article on Red State about how unions turned away electrical people and how FEMA is sidelined due to unions and red tape. This is big government and this is what the voters in NY and NJ voted for.

You´re not mean, you´re realistic. I sent more than $100 worth of goods to relief efforts before the election. Now I wish I hadn´t. I need that money for my own relief.

I said it in another post, I´ll say it again: let the me-gimme-mine´s do for themselves for once. My give-a-dam broke into smithereens on 11/6/12!!!

The misery is certainly spread around. What did these people do to deserve this? What did any of us do to deserve this? We turned our backs on our creator. We said "No" Just as we cried for the Tsunami victims in Japan, we cry for these as well.

If there is no turning, then perhaps they should move to a country favored by the won. Our government would jump right in pronto in order to assist.

I see this as an opportunity from God to show others that "we the church" are to step up and in to show the Way. Not the government. Social justice comes only from our Heavenly Father not from man nor from government.

Atlantic Magazine, by Peter Beinart    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 2/10/2014 11:26:13 AM     Post Reply
In recent weeks, one Republican after another has come forward to rebut the Democratic claim that the GOP is waging a “war on women.” The responses have ranged from homey (Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers responding to Barack Obama’s State of the Union address by noting that she’d given birth just eight weeks earlier) to creepy (former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee saying Democrats think women can’t control their “libidos.”) But perhaps most puzzling has been the tack taken by Rand Paul, who in interview after interview after interview has accused Democrats of “hypocrisy” for claiming to support women’s rights while giving

This year, on the 15th season of NBC´s weight-loss show "The Biggest Loser," Rachel Frederickson did exactly what the show producers, the celebrity trainers and the audience asked her to: She lost the most weight. She lost so much weight, in fact, that many have decided she is now unhealthily thin. Jaws dropped at her final weigh-in. Social media exploded. At 5-foot-4 and 105 pounds, her body mass index is below what the National Institutes of Health considers healthy. I won´t speculate on her health. That´s for a doctor to determine, and hopefully she´s regularly seeing one. She says she´s "never felt

During a trip to Los Angeles last year, Hillary Clinton didn’t leave town before meeting with the man who wants to make her president: Jeffrey Katzenberg. It was spring. Clinton was a few months out from her job at the State Department. Hundreds of thousands of people were clicking “Like” on a Facebook page called “Ready for Hillary.” A small group of operatives in Washington were plotting to make the Democratic Party’s largest super PAC, Priorities USA Action, the biggest, best Clinton game in town. And Katzenberg, the short and intense 63-year-old movie executive funding Priorities, was positioning himself, publicly and privately,

Dissidents in Kazakhstan have been pressing for change in the country’s leadership, having grown tired of the 24-year rule of President Nazarbayev. He has a better idea: he will stay in power but change the name of his state. If the elaborate rebranding goes ahead, Kazakhstan will drop its “stan” and be dubbed Kazakh Eli. Both names mean the same — land of the Kazakhs — but the “stan”

A lot of important journalism begins with a simple, seemingly obvious question, like why traffic is snarled in New Jersey on the way into New York. Traffic coverage may be the lowest species in the dog-bites-man pantheon of news, except when it is not. John Cichowski writes the “Road Warrior” commuter column for The Record, a daily newspaper in northern New Jersey that covers Bergen County. In September, the editor of the newspaper, Martin Gottlieb, received a tip from the publisher that navigating onto the George Washington Bridge from Fort Lee was taking hours. Mr. Gottlieb told Mr. Cichowski, who called the

Sen. Rand Paul, who has been in a bit of a tiff recently with the Clintons, says that any Democrat who has raised campaign money with former President Clinton should return the cash to protest his sexual behavior in the White House. Speaking on C-Span’s “Newsmakers” program, in an interview airing Sunday, Mr. Paul said Democrats are being hypocritical by criticizing Republicans as waging a war on women while at the same time embracing Mr. Clinton, who was impeached for lying about a sexual relationship with a White House intern.

It’s time to leave Woody Allen alone. “What is your favorite Woody Allen movie?’’ This was the pointed question — fighting words, really — that kicked off an open letter written by the adopted daughter of the iconic New York City filmmaker and posted last weekend on a New York Times blog. Dylan Farrow, who now lives under another name, wrote that one day in 1992, Woody, a self-described claustrophobe, led her to a cramped attic in the Connecticut summer house owned by her mother, Mia Farrow, and told her to lie on her stomach and play with her brother’s electric train

Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview with CNN´s Kate Bolduan that he can´t formulate a "good" reason not to run for president in 2016. "There may be reasons I don´t run, but there´s no obvious reason for me why I think I should not run," Biden said in the interview, which aired Friday morning on CNN´s "New Day." Biden said, realistically, that a decision on his potential 2016 run would come next summer. One reason he might not run is the sizable polling gulf already between him and Democrats´ most logical candidate — former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to

It’s only February, but it’s already my favorite word — or phrase, I guess — of the year. (Who knows, by December it may be shortened to “joblock.”) It’s not euphonious or edgy, but it does offer insight into the unreality of the Democrats’ predicament. The Congressional Budget Office issued a politically explosive report this week, finding that Obamacare will reduce the number of hours Americans work by the equivalent of 2.5 million full-time jobs. This is different from killing 2.5 million jobs, Obamacare defenders are quick to insist. This will be a shortfall on the demand, not supply, side. In

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?

It was the perfect Christmas tableau at the Allen-Farrow household: There sat Mia and nine of her children around the dinner table. There were two turkeys, an abundance of side dishes, and in the middle, a carved angel. In came Woody Allen with a holiday greeting. “Pardon me while I puke,” he said, then went off to the kitchen to juice apples. Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,

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

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.
