But I am only one man that is no longer in public service. So I no longer hold myself to the same standards of those who are. Like you and Mikey, I did my duty. 22 years of missing birthdays, missing Christmas and Thanksgivings, missing ball games and recitals etc etc etc. but I had a pretty good idea of what I was signing up for when I signed and submitted my application.
As I have said before Waco, without Katie, I would not be where I am at today. Sucessfulness is a relative term to the individual. I am thankful for what I have, where I have been and where I am about to go. I am fortunate enough to have my best friend with me who is equally excited. Yours and my points of view of people and politics is a difference of opinion I can live with. However, I can not and will not live with the direction you and your teammates are taking our country. Being that it is still free for the moment, exercising my rights to agree to disagree and change the channel or country. So forgive me if we do not see eye to eye. If you and Lu are still doing ya'lls thing, which I hope so, then I hope you got your best girl beside you as you ride the roads chasing sunsets. I know I do.

And if you take Hitler's views and substitute "jews" with "capitalist", you would then have alot of Obama's and the liberals views.
So, you are saying that working for the end of the Bush tax cuts for people above the $400,000 income is comparable to the wholesale murdering of over 6 million jews?

<quoted text> So since you're now pushing for stiffer gun laws due to the unforeseen tragedy at Sandy Hook, are you also saying that everyone who lives within an X number of miles from the ocean should be required to buy flood insurance due to the unforeseen tragedies that could occur?
What rates do you think the insurance companies would impose for such coverage after Sandy? Probably something unaffordable for most home owners, wouldn't you say?

He is exposing the basic callousness of the Republicans in the House of Representatives in regard to timely Federal relief for the victims of his state. The House is making politics their priority over the well being of the people. I think his re-election ambitions do not figure into the equation at this juncture. Those people in New Jersey currently live in complete misery and hopelessness. That is his priority in lashing out.

I think the thinking was....that FEMA has enough money....as of now....to last until March anyway....that's what I heard...in any event it's a political football now...

"Those people in New Jersey currently live in complete misery and hopelessness. That is his priority in lashing out."

This is important and I will tell you why. The Commonwealth of New Jersey turned away power company linemen crews from Georgia, South Carolina, Florida and Alabama because they were not unionized workers or union shops.

That in itself alone is enough of a reason for me to say that tough tiddlies Christie, should of thought bout that before the turning away free help. Especially after your main man Nobama said cut all the red tape.

Screw Jersey, screw Christie and maybe his "bromance" will flourish when he switches teams.

I would say yes, probably higher than before the storm but that goes back on those who live beyond their means. If you can't afford it, you shouldn't live there.

It is very different. No capitalists have been mass murdered in America have they? You are reaching for sh*t to make your point based on your intense hatred for Obama.

Of course reported only by right wing conservative pundits and Fox News that the Alabama Power Companies deny.

I'm sure if all of the pork were cut from the bill it would've passed already. I see that as being responsible, don't you?
I also find it ironic that the most liberal areas of every state that suffers a disaster are the ones who cry for federal assistance, NY, NJ, NO,(those who rely on govt), but conservative areas like Tex, Ok, Ka, Mo, take care of themselves,(those who are self reliant).

Did any of those states on your 'self reliant' list receive any FEMA assistance?

The murder of actual people, no. The murder of hundreds of thousands of jobs, if not millions, through higher taxes, regulations, the inability to compete against the govt on an unlevel paying field, etc..., you betcha!

I'm sure they did, my point is they didn't sit around and whine about how long it took the assistance to arrive like in NJ & NO. They took care of themselves and when the money came in, it came in.

To be technical, they weren't turned around. They were told they could work as long as they agreed to temporarily join the union in order to work in NJ.

http://www.politickernj.com/60797/alabama-pow...

This requirement meant that the AL power crews would have to contribute union dues, pension fees, etc...while working in NJ, a requirement that they decided against.
And you wonder why these people in NJ are still waiting on assistance!

Silver, I hope everything works out great for you, your wife, and friends moving with you. Actually our best friends are going with us and we have no idea how long we'll stay, we just know we're going. Paperwork and phone calls is big job and nothing gets done in a hurry. I spent about 3 hours on the phone yesterday trying to coordinate a short visit for us in the next couple months. Waiting for the last check that was supposedly mailed out on 12/31 to get here and we're all liquidated. Living out of boxes right now is driving me insane, but hey it's worth it.
