GOP Senator Key in
NY Gay Marriage OK Concedes

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/13/2012 6:11:14 PM

Albany, NY - A Republican who cast the deciding vote to legalize gay marriage in New York has conceded he lost his re-election bid. Veteran state Sen. Stephen Saland´s (SUH´-lahndz) defeat means three of the four Republicans who cast critical votes for gay marriage in June 2011 won´t be returning to the Senate. Saland´s concession Thursday ends a long count of absentee ballots in the Hudson Valley race, in which Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo (KWOH´-moh) praised him for what he called a courageous vote of conscience. Democrat Terry Gipson wins the 41st Senate District race.

Comments:
Yet, another "special interest" group for the dRATS to chide US with for losing GOP seats. Will the bigotry and open hostility of the left never end?

It is New York...I don´t care what they do...only a collection of liberal morons would remember 9-11 on one-hand and let a Mosque be built at Ground Zero...then again it is also the same state that has banned (in NYC) 16 Oz soft drinks...their love affair with homosexuality is the least of their problems

As w/ elections, personal political decisions like Saland´s have consequences. After voting for gay marriage last year, he didn´t get the Conservative Party line needed to be competitive. Saland was in the NY State Legislature for 32 years, so his departure is overdue. Buh-bye.

16,000 of us in Saland´s district voted for the conservative alternative - he lost by about half of that, I think, so -- we kicked him out and he knows it.

Of the 4 Republican state senators who changed their vote and voted for homosexual marrkage in NY, 2 were voted out, 1 resigned prior to the election because of opposition to his vote last year, and one was re-elected.

The signs around here were ´Retire Saland´. No man should be reelected to a state senate seat 15-16 times like he was. He became a big government Republican - so many mailings to his contituents exclaiming how he has gotten state funds for this, or federal funds for that.... That´s all he was in the end: a government handout troll. So -- with his vote on gay marriage - who needs a Republican like that? The dem will do the same think. Good riddance. A ´vote of conscience´ my foot. He bought Cuomo´s endorsement with that vote. His vote was huge for the Democrats - they got what they wanted and they got rid of him, too. Jackpot.

If I am going to vote for someone who walks and talks and votes like a Demon-RAT, I might as well vote for a Demon-RAT. Duh...

Of course, I will NEVER vote for another Demon-RAT. And I will NEVER vote for another RINO. So that makes it a lot easier.

Lydia DePillis´ story last week about the imminent demise of low-cal liquor made me realize that I don´t spend a lot of time thinking about the calorie content of booze. This isn´t an accident - beer, wine and liquor manufacturers are held to very different labeling standards than other food and beverage makers, and those standards don´t require the familiar ´nutrition facts´ you see everywhere else. The history behind this is complicated and a little insane - after Prohibition, beer makers were actually forbidden from putting alcohol content information on their labels. They finally sued for the right to do so in 1987.

Los Angeles - Authorities say a magnitude-5.1 earthquake has shaken the Los Angeles area. The U.S. Geological Survey originally estimated the quake to be a magnitude-5.3. It said the Friday quake struck at about 9:11 p.m. and was centered near Brea in Orange County — about 20 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. About an hour earlier, a 3.6 quake hit nearby in the city of La Habra. There were no immediate reports of damage.

Can Europe wean itself

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/29/2014 12:16:12 AM     Post Reply
One of the companies most entwined in the natural gas business in Europe is the Italian oil giant ENI – and that has put it smack in the middle of the crisis between Russia and western nations. ENI is the biggest seller of natural gas in Europe, providing 22 percent of the market. It is also the biggest customer of the Russian gas monopoly Gazprom, worth about 10 billion euros a year, and it might join with Gazprom to build a new pipeline under the Black Sea. It has a deal with Russia’s biggest oil company,Rosneft, to explore in the Barents Sea. It also has rights to look for shale gas in Ukraine and plans to propose reworking some old neglected oil

A spokesman for the New York City company that manages 1 World Trade Center says the building´s head of security has resigned. The Durst Organization´s Jordan Barowitz confirms David Velazquez resigned Friday. The departure comes just days after the arrests of three skydiving enthusiasts who in September parachuted off the building, the nation´s tallest skyscraper. It comes about two weeks after authorities say a New Jersey teenager sneaked onto the site and climbed to the top of the 1,776-foot tower to take pictures. Barowitz says the company took over security of the tower in January.

´Noah´ Review: Brilliantly Sinister
Anti-Christian Filmmaking
Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by John Nolte    Original Article

When atheist director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky promised that his epic "Noah" would be "the least biblical film ever made," that was not hyperbole. "Noah" is a brilliant, compelling, beautifully-mounted, beautifully-acted piece of storytelling conceived for the sinister purpose of leading people to believe that Christianity and Judaism are something they are not. (Snip) What does matter, though, is The Message. The Message is everything. And this is where Aronofsky is the snake in the garden. Using a $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - President Obama is weighing whether to allow shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missiles to be shipped to moderate factions of the Syrian opposition, possibly with help from the Saudi government, a U.S. official said Friday.

Sacramento - Reeling from embarrassing bribery, corruption and voter fraud scandals, the state Senate took the unprecedented action Friday of voting to suspend three Democratic lawmakers from office pending the resolution of criminal charges against them. The paid suspensions of Sens. Leland Yee, Ronald S. Calderon and Roderick Wright all but guarantee Democrats will not regain their supermajority in the Senate this session. And the controversies are expected to become anti-incumbent campaign fodder in other districts in this year´s elections. The bipartisan 28-1 vote came two days after Yee was arrested in his hometown

Responding to a threat that the "House of Cards" television series may leave Maryland if it doesn´t get more tax credits, the House of Delegates adopted budget language Thursday requiring the state to seize the production company´s property if it stops filming in the state. Media Rights Capital, the Beverly Hills, Calif., company producing the popular Netflix show, wrote Gov. Martin O´Malley that it was putting off work on its third season until it could be assured that sufficient tax credits would be approved. If those weren´t forthcoming, it said it would break down its film stage and move it to another state.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively.

She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
