‘We Need Food, We Need Clothing’: Staten Island Residents Plead for Help 3 Days After Sandy

The residents of Staten Island are pleading for help from elected officials, begging for gasoline, food and clothing three days after Sandy slammed the New York City borough.

“We’re going to die! We’re going to freeze! We got 90-year-old people!” Donna Solli told visiting officials.“You don’t understand. You gotta get your trucks down here on the corner now. It’s been three days!”

Staten Island was one of the hardest-hit communities in New York City. More than 80,000 residents are still without power. Many are homeless, and at least 19 people died on Staten Island because of the storm.

One of the devastated neighborhoods was overwhelmed by a violent surge of water. Residents described a super-sized wave as high as 20 feet, with water rushing into the streets like rapids.

Obama, parting in Las Vegas, had no comment except to blame George Bush.

You are dumb and a liar. The truth is you post about 35 - 40 times a day. The result you get about 50 posts a day laughing at your stoopidity and may 2 a day that support your BULLMANURE.
In the last hour or so you have posted 4 times and have been the target of 6 posts laughing at you. About normal.

<quoted text>"A new ad from the Obama campaign takes aim at Mitt Romney’s performance as governor of Massachusetts, claiming he had “one of the worst economic records in the country.” But the ad overreaches with several of its claims.

The ad states that job creation in Massachusetts “fell” to 47th under Romney. That’s a bit misleading. Massachusetts’ state ranking for job growth went from 50th the year before he took office, to 28th in his final year. It was 47th for the whole of his four-year tenure, but it was improving, not declining, when he left."

I guess Romney must have built a munitions factory in Massachusetts when he was governor. God help the world if he is elected.(Note) good idea is to buy stocks in body bag companies if you want to get rich under Romney.

A Chrysler executive told Donald Trump in a Tweet on Thursday that the real estate executive and television personality was "full of shit" for repeating a notion that Chrysler is shipping U.S. Jeep production to China, which the automaker refutes.
Ralph Gilles, the head of product design for Chrysler, became the second top Chrysler executive in three days to strongly deny the claim, which was first made by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney last week to a crowd in Ohio.

Today, President Bush announced a new goal to help increase the number of minority homeowners by at least 5.5 million before the end of the decade. The President's aggressive housing agenda will help dismantle the barriers to homeownership by providing down payment assistance, increasing the supply of affordable homes, increasing support for self-help homeownership programs, and simplifying the home buying process & increasing education. The President also issued "America's Homeownership Challenge" to the real estate and mortgage finance industries to join in his effort to increase the number of minority homeowners by taking concrete steps to tear down the barriers to homeownership that face minority families.
http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/ne...


Sounds great but did Bush say give loans to people that can't pay for them?

//////////
THE seeds of today’s financial meltdown lie in the Community Reinvestment Act – a law passed in 1977 and made riskier by unwise amendments and regulatory rulings in later decades.
CRA was meant to encourage banks to make loans to high-risk borrowers, often minorities living in unstable neighborhoods. That has provided an opening to radical groups like ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) to abuse the law by forcing banks to make hundreds of millions of dollars in “subprime” loans to often uncreditworthy poor and minority customers.
Any bank that wants to expand or merge with another has to show it has complied with CRA – and approval can be held up by complaints filed by groups like ACORN.
In fact, intimidation tactics, public charges of racism and threats to use CRA to block business expansion have enabled ACORN to extract hundreds of millions of dollars in loans and contributions from America’s financial institutions .
The Woods Fund report makes it clear Obama was fully aware of the intimidation tactics used by ACORN’s Madeline Talbott in her pioneering efforts to force banks to suspend their usual credit standards. Yet he supported Talbott in every conceivable way. He trained her personal staff and other aspiring ACORN leaders, he consulted with her extensively, and he arranged a major boost in foundation funding for her efforts.
And, as the leader of another charity, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, Obama channeled more funding Talbott’s way – ostensibly for education projects but surely supportive of ACORN’s overall efforts.

About 3300 more people have committed suicide each year during Obama's presidency so those body bags are already spoken for.

Romney did not spend his own money. His campaign staff spent $5000 in campaign contributions at Walmart.

Hold the Koran in one hand, and the New Testament in the other hand.
How about you hand the book that teaches tolerance, love, peace, humility, equality, forgiveness, and everything else that makes life better, to a stranger,... and burn the one that teaches intolerance, women in sexual slavery, and killing anyone and everyone who has a different belief.
Which one do you burn?
The New Testament or the Koran?
Neither. I don't burn books.

But then again, I don't need any book of ancient fairy tales, to convince me of the existence or the nature of the Divine.

The Divine is made manifest in every particle of the universe - why would it need a book to make itself understood? Only men who don't listen have that problem. Free will and all like that...

As for the separation of Church and State, I'm all for it. Big fan. One's religion and one's service to one's country should function independently, as one has nothing to do with the other. Religion is personal, and public service is, well, public.
Since we don't all 'worship' the Divine in the same way,(and some of us don't worship at all) it is against the Constitution to legislate the tenets of one religion over another, and passing any religious test for eligibility to public office is EXPLICITLY forbidden.

"Religion as Government" is in the Koran, I think....and there was that quote about 'rendering unto Caesar...' now who said that again?

It never ceases to amaze me how often Christians tout the Bible, but refuse to heed it. You folks need a new shtick.
