No more guessing?
So maybe FOX will finally realize that there was a hurricane?
I'm beginning to wonder if residents of Indy don't have access to Fox News. Is that why you don't know what you are talking about, SF?

Here in the eastern part of the state, we do have access.

I'm sitting here listening to hurricane reports on Fox News. At this point they are talking about Staten Island ... huge gas lines, frustration, death toll at 90, 4 million homes destroyed,
the 2 little boys swept away from their mom, Janet Napolitano to
visit the area, transit system, roads blocked, closed gas stations or stations without fuel.

Oh gee, they've interrupted their hurricane coverage twice to show Obama speechifying.

The latest unemployment rate at 7.9%. Hmmm ... "The 7.8 percent figure is the official unemployment rate from January 2009." (according to Media Matters. I just checked.).

7.8% when Obama was elected. 7.9% a week before the election.
Isn't that rate going the wrong direction? Am I missing something or shouldn't the unemployment rate have moved CLOSER to the rate Obama promised, around 6%?

I'm waiting for Fox to slam the prez, blame him for all the hurricane problems. Same with unemployment rate.

Waiting...waiting... waiting...

Oh, darn, now they've moved on to another Obama clip followed by showing Romney making a speech....

Heck, now that the Romney speech is over, they're back to covering that old hurricane issue ... something about gas being stolen from boats along with the electronics ... Again I'm waiting for criticism of Obama ... None.

Left the room for awhile ... They've gone to commercials ...

Back to a story about the captain missing from that ship lost during the hurricane ...

I thought that you of all people would remember the Jones Act from the gulf oil spill when every right wing loon on here was an expert on Maritime law.

Hey, remember that ginormous ship called The Whale that was going to clean up the gulf lickety split if Da Bammy would only waive the Jones Act. Hah!

Just like Mittler's grandfather? Not much funny about how that never comes up...maybe the fact that he was on welfare when he first came back from Mexico had something to do with it?

How many people support your posts?
"silly"
Actually a fairly good number do support my stances. Of course I am not a troll and agree with stances on both sides of the political spectrum though it is obvious that I am a conservative. I will admit that a few disagree with what I post and it's there right to do so. Does not bother me in the least. I simply consider the source. I usually log on a couple of times a day and scroll thru the entries. Does not take long, most are of no interest. In a normal week I post about 40 - 50 times, not all on this thread.
You on the other hand post 40 - 50 times a day, some are supported by other posters, many are not. You are far left on almost all issues, you are a believer that the government is the answer to all situations, I disagree.

Solli said residents needed gas, food and clothes. "We're gonna freeze," she said on a day when the 50-degree temperature was predicted to drop to the low 40s. "We've got 90-year-old people!"
"The Democratic senator from New York said he understood and hugged her." Big WHOOP. SAID he wanted to receive from the federal government.
"Administration officials SAID...." I don't believe administration officials who have been shown to lie to cover up for the preezy. Where's the picture?
Note...food (if there WAS any being delivered, I'd still like to SEE that please), was DONATED by a private concern.
I think the best thing the American people can learn from this second hurricane fiasco is the fact they should learn to depend upon themselves, if word goes out to be prepared then GET prepared, if you are told to evacuate do so, and have extra food and water on hand in case of any kind of emergency.
Unfortunately, so many people have been told by democratic administrations that almighty government will care for them. Big mistake to believe that one!
Abby, this is so spot-on, I wanna cry, all except for the 'food' part: if the mopes who didn't prep for this well-known and widespread emergency are hungry now, they need to go out and kill 'em some dinner. The 'gubmint' ain't gonna do SHIT for them. And rightly so. The National Weather Service did everything 'gubmintly' necessary, 10 days ago, when it forecasted the storm.

Amazing how Obama goes almost four years without ever reaching across party lines as he promised in his previous campaign, then one week before the election he finally reaches out to Christie and Bloomberg to complete his sole bi-partisan act as president. Great job Mr. President, I am sure your groopies will eat that up. Normal americans will see it for what it is, BS.
