Attention Mr. President!
There´s still another big
issue you need to address

New York Daily News, by Denis Hamill

Come back, Mr. President. With the fiscal cliff behind him, the president left Washington for the shimmering rainbows and golden beaches of Hawaii as the people left homeless by the Hurricane Sandy-ruined beaches of Rockaway, Midland Beach, Breezy Point, the Jersey Shore sit waiting for a moribund Congress to approve their $60 billion aid package. As the president hopped Air Force One, thousands of people of the storm he promised to help were still trapped on the edge of a fiscal cliff. Not much has apparently changed since four years ago, when I wrote here

"Fiscal Cliff" = "Debt Bomb"
Fiscal Cliff not behind us.
Fiscal Cliff is dead ahead.

We either

1) cut spending NOW (have a bad recession),
2) or have a depression, hyperinflation, and probably a war (and not us going "there", rather, them coming "here")

Alex, I´ll take "Cut Spending Now" for a thousand.

I assume Denis Hamill is progeny of earlier left wing loon Pete Hamill.

I guess there was a handful of morons who believed Obama when he said he´d cut throuh the re tape to help hurricane victims.Now te balme is being shifted to congress because they don´t agree with the pork add ons.There´s tons of unspent money in every government account because the estra money wasn´t needed in the last budget the senate passed.But Obama could have shifted funds from other areas to get money to the disaster area.

Obama´s one of the main authors of the additional pork requests,once again pinning the republicans back against the wall. Boehner,for his part should have passed a bill that pertained to the hurricane only.In the meantime you have a fat assed loud mouth governor putting his states needs ahead of the national budget woes.

Peter King is just as bad calling for a boycott on donations to the GOP. Yeah,that will help us long term of being able to push back.Is there another party out there I don´t know about?

When the interest on the national debt exceeds 50% of each year´s budget, perhaps then the idiots in D.C. will at least read it before signing it.

The politicians in NY and NJ need to prove to the American taxpayers that they need 60 billion dollars. This aid bill is not a clean bill. The Senate Dems loaded this bill up from 8 billion needed for 2013 to 60 billion for all kinds of goodies for special interests around the country.
I am thankful someone has the sense to slow this down to look at the true cost the taxpayers should provide. I am tired of throwing money away under the guise of of "a crisis."

All the lavish spending on himself and his family by this POTUS, as listed in this article, is ignored by the Left. What´s worse, Obama & Co. are right in assuming that the low-information voter will never hear about these things and if they do, they think it´s about time one of theirs got reparations.

So, no matter how often Obama et al spend millions of our money on their sybaritic lifestyle, no one cares except those with a sense of honor. It´s useless to complain about it until we win the ideological war on Obama´s socialist agenda -- it´s part of his worldview that he and his family should live lives of rulers rather than governors.

What frightens me is that his followers are okay with this. Because they don´t pay taxes and because they get all that free stuff, the high taxation and regulation will never hit them, only us. So why shouldn´t they enjoy watching O & Co. having a blast on Whitey´s dime?

Good post 10, but I think it is time to stop assuming that those partying are not white, and those paying are ´whitey´. There is, of course, considerable correlation between race, O support and tax payer/entitlement status. A better, less "dog-whistley" way to couch the issue is the Ant and the Grasshopper. O´s supporters want to frolic all summer, but when winter comes, they turn to the hard-working Ant to share what he has laboriously piled up. Ants & Grasshoppers: America at the crossroads.

Though a previous poster pointed out this bill is bursting with pork, IMHO, no one is asking the pertinent question: Why is the federal government paying to rebuild private property?

A few years ago, a wind storm blew half the roof off our house (and many of our neighbors) .... should your tax dollars have paid for my repairs?

It is this mentality that has gotten us into the fiscal disaster we find ourselves. Whenever something goes astray, go, hat in hand, to the government to make it better. Unless that changes, we´ll never recover as a nation!

I´m with you #12. We had homes destroyed and damaged by tornados in our area which were rebuilt without any government aid. Throughout the U.S. homes burn down every day which are rebuilt without FEMA. I do not understand why one should get FEMA assistance for their personal residence just because the threshold of the how widespread the disaster has been met. If only one home is destryoed it is a disaster for that homeowner.

12, 13, it is my understanding that FEMA only offers low interest loans for personal property repairs. They do not pay for repairs.

I think the FEMA money goes to the states to help restore the infrastructure and pay for clean up.

I don´t understand yesterday´s market uptick.

OK, I get that people are happy that the "crisis" is averted, but that´s just temporary, and when the debt ceiling issue comes up and Bernanke and Geithner screw that up again, along with the next "cliff" (in 2 months), our bond rating is going to go down again. Borrowing money (which we are doing at an insane and accelerating rate) is going to be more and more expensive, compounding the problem.

Nothing has been solved, in fact, in typical Dim/Won fashion, things have actually been made much, much worse.

And I´ve had my coffee.

Agree with #12 and 13! I paid flood insurance for 30 years due to living on the Texas gulf coast. I never filed a claim, but would not expect the Feds to cover my losses if I failed to pay for insurance. Responsible citizens carry insurance and take care of their own property.

FEMA does offer low-interest loans. They also hand out money that does not need to be paid back.

I only gave money to help the animals at shelters, damaged homes, etc in NY and NJ. I also recall seeing during the Christmas season just past all these commercials by Red Cross on how they have helped so many people hurt by Sandy.

The massive floods on the Mississippi River in the 1930s - all the aid, repairs, etc was accomplished through private donations.

Romney would have been over there with a chain saw and a shovel, encouraging others to give of themselves. The Obama government thinks every problem needs to be handled with other people´s money.

When New Orleans and the east coast suffered from catastrophic storms, it was up to the government to take care of those who did nothing to take care of themselves. When Mississippi and Alabama flooded from Katrina, church groups mobilized to repair the damage and clean up the mess. The same thing with the Nashville flooding early in Obama´s term. You did not see constant streams of photos and video from those areas, precisely because they weren´t inhabited by lazy welfare recipients who would sit on a bridge until someone put them in a cab or a helicopter to take them to a FEMA trailer.

2.In some Russian book there was half a joke: What is in abundance in the Universe? Hydrogen and human stupidity.
Now, Bush in 6 years with both repubic chambers of Congress accomplished what, 10% of what obozo accomplished in 4 years with only 2 years of "friendly" Congress.

In continuation of #27:
What I think is happening? obozo has mainstream media and money (banks and Wall Street)!
And conservatives will constantly lose and be blamed for whatever is wrong with our country unless we will not get the conservative mainstream media up and running.
Even ann coulter´s darling christie is blaming repubics and there is not one outlet to counter him except for blogs - which are read only by us over and over again. We need a newspapers on every corner with headlines that are not pro-obozo, and we need local tv news without praising this clown for his actions!

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
