Florida is disgusting, sweaty mess
— with little hope in sight

Associated Press, by Staff

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — In a state built on air conditioning, millions of Florida residents now want to know one thing: When will the power be back on? Hurricane Irma’s march across Florida and into the Southeast triggered one of the bigger blackouts in U.S. history, plunging as many as 13 million people into the dark as the storm dragged down power lines and blew out transformers. It also shattered the climate-controlled bubbles that enable people to live here despite the state’s heat, humidity and insects.

My mother grew up in southern Tennessee with no air conditioning. My father grew up in southern Kentucky with no air conditioning. My siblings and I had no air conditioning for years and years. Is it uncomfortable? Yes. Is it unlivable? No. You adjust. God bless the air conditioner and I know Floridians will be very happy when it comes back on, but you can live without it.
By the way I will bet any amount of money the author of this is one of those guys who would cry and suck his thumb if HIS AC went off.

What a disgusting attitude on the part of the AP Staff.

What´s disgusting about people having to temporarily put up with conditions that used to be the norm, conditions many of us grew up in? Does that constitute disgusting to a snowflake?

How about headline you could have gone with based on the article content: "Florida residence connecting with neighbors as they face rebuilding"

Little hope in sight? Really? Do you actually think that These people are that short sighted?

Give me a break.

Could this be nothing more than gloom and doom from a presstitute organization of the enemedia intended to sow fear, uncertainty, and doubt?

Of course it is a disgusting, sweaty mess! What else would be expected after something like this at this time of year! To be in it is an assault on all 5 senses--yes, you can actually taste the funk in the air. However, it is NOT hopeless. It just takes time to get things going. Once started, they gain momentum as communication & transportation are restored and volunteers can and do come in--along with gov´t agencies, etc.

It ought to be a requirement for would be reporters and pundits to live for a year as a native in some tropical, 3rd world country. Amazing what it would do for their perspective; either make them or break them.

I read, years ago, a piece in some publication, that the reason that the South -- maybe it referred specifically to Atlanta -- had risen to great levels of prosperity was air conditioning. And that was because of a man named Willis Carrier from Buffalo, New York.

White House military personnel removed
amid investigation into contacts with
foreign women during Trump’s Asia trip
Washington Post, by Carol D. Leonnig, Dan Lamothe *    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 11/22/2017 7:34:11     Post Reply
Three military personnel have been reassigned from their White House jobs amid allegations that they had improper contact with foreign women while traveling with President Trump on his recent trip to Asia, according to officials familiar with the situation. The service members worked for the White House Communications Agency, a specialized military unit that helps provide the president, vice president, Secret Service and other officials with secure communications. The military is scrutinizing three Army noncommissioned officers who allegedly broke curfew during Trump’s trip to Vietnam this month, officials said.

NOVEMBER 21, 2017 —Darren Triplow has an unusual occupation. He flies helicopters in Rwanda to help conservationists watch for poachers illegally hunting black rhinos. To unwind when he’s at his home base in Washington, D.C., he’ll sometimes settle in front of the television. But it’s not the weekend game that he turns on. It’s the Hallmark Channel. “I like the content. The shows are family-friendly – it’s not riddled with violence like you see in a lot of shows on these days.

Here´s the early proposal for Anthony Scaramucci´s
book, which is now dead in the water
Business Insider, by Maxwell Tani    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 11/21/2017 8:25:50     Post Reply
President Donald Trump´s short-lived communications director Anthony Scaramucci didn´t have much luck shopping his book with major publishers. In the months after getting ousted from the White House, Scaramucci sought a publisher to put out a book, which at one point was titled "I Did It My Way," about his 10 days as Trump´s communications director. A proposal for the book that was circulated to several major publishers earlier this summer and shared with Business Insider promised a "tell-all" to dish on his bizarre ouster from the White House as well as his "countless other interactions involving Sean Spicer,

Last Thursday, after a photograph emerged of Senator Al Franken either groping or pretending to grope a sleeping woman, Leeann Tweeden, with whom he’d been traveling on a 2006 U.S.O. tour, I wrote that he should resign. Almost as soon as it was published I started having second thoughts. I spent all weekend feeling guilty that I’d called for the sacrifice of an otherwise decent man to make a political point. Then I saw the news that a woman named Lindsay Menz accused Franken of grabbing her butt while they posed for a photo at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010,

With all the scandals in the news, liberals are turning on President Clinton. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes reckons that the “center left” is “overdue for a real reckoning” with Mr. Clinton. The Times’ Michelle Goldberg says, “I believe Juanita,” a reference to Mrs. Broaddrick, who in the late 1990s alleged that in 1978, Mr. Clinton, then Arkansas’ attorney-general, raped her at a hotel. Mr. Clinton has long denied the charge. Chelsea Handler tweets an apology to Mrs. Broaddrick. Ross Douthat, referring to the special prosecutor who turned Mr. Clinton over to Congress for impeachment for perjury and obstruction, asks, “What if

What is it about that photograph of the Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, and his wife, Louise Linton, holding a sheet of dollar bills that has so captivated America’s journalistic elites? The chief fashion critic of the New York Times, Vanessa Friedman, fingered Ms. Linton’s black leather gloves. “Black leather, after all — unlike, say, brown leather — is one of the most emotive sartorial symbols in the wardrobe, imbued with a host of cultural and historical associations for almost everyone,” Ms. Friedman wrote. “It is the de facto outfit of villains everywhere, from generic Nazis with their black leather trench

Newly revealed pictures show Sen. Al Franken grabbing self-described feminist Arianna Huffington on her bottom and breasts. The never-before-published images, taken for a magazine in 2000 and obtained exclusively by The Post, include a number of frames showing the former “Saturday Night Live” star grabbing the media mogul’s buttocks as they pose back to back. An even more shocking snap shows the pair posing on a bed, with Franken cupping Huffington’s breast with one hand. “Franken was clowning around, but it really isn’t funny,” said a source from the shoot. “That’s his tactic, pretend like it’s all a big joke.

Talk show host and journalist Charlie Rose was the latest to come under fire over sexual harassment allegations. The Washington Post dropped the newest bomb on Monday: Eight women, including three on the record, claimed Rose allegedly made unwanted sexual advances, including inappropriate phone calls, groping and appearing naked in front of them. Some were shocked to hear the allegations, thought not if you´ve been watching Last Week Tonight. Host John Oliver has long poked fun at Rose and his CBS This Morning co-hosts for their awkward, innuendo-filled banter. Yet in light of the new allegations, those moments feel less hilariously

And so the liberal Democrat double standard plays out again. By now, we are well aware of the extraordinary predilection that certain prominent liberal Democrats — and their bagmen, donors, and fundraisers — have for sexually harassing women, objectifying women, using women as playthings and sex objects, even while giving the other kind of lip service to the “dignity of women.” From the vehicular bridge spans of Ted Kennedy to the antics within the John Kennedy White House, from the Bill Clinton state house in Little Rock to his oval office and under his desk in D.C., from the Harvey Weinstein

Whenever a Republican — in this case, Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore — is accused of sexual harassment, his backers are sure to counter the Democratic onslaught with three little words: Remember Bill Clinton? Democrats have been foiled time and again from claiming the moral high ground on sexual misconduct thanks in large part to their decision in the 1990s to ignore, excuse and rebut the well-documented sexual transgressions of the president. After 25 years, however, some liberals finally are asking whether it’s time to deal with their Bubba problem. “It’s only taken 20 years, but the tide seems to finally be turning

Imagine: even the New York Times’ Ross Douthat now thinks that Bill Clinton should have stepped down over the Monica Lewinsky affair. Douthat’s mea culpa op-ed in this past weekend’s paper, in which he confesses that he and others may have been wrong to dismiss Bill Clinton’s indefensible behavior, will serve as the official political obituary for Clinton, Inc.

State Police say Pirro was clocked driving 119 mph in a 65 mph zone when she was stopped by a trooper at about 1:15 p.m. Sunday afternoon in the Town of Nichols in Tioga County.

Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable.

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.

A second federal judge has halted the Trump administration’s proposed transgender military ban, finding that active-duty service members are “already suffering harmful consequences” because of the president’s policy. The ruling Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis in a Maryland case comes just weeks after another judge in Washington blocked the administration’s proposal that would have stopped military recruitment of transgender men and women and possibly forced the dismissal of current service members, starting in March. The preliminary injunction issued by the judge in Baltimore on Tuesday goes further than the
