Do you really think their racist ideologies are thought by the old only?Loads of them oldies taught their ideas to their young,and them to theirs.All it takes is for them to find an innocent black person in the south and kill him/her to release their anger.If this Impeach Obama campaine picks up it could be the spark.
WELL, YOU CORRECT. IT'S COMIN' ALL RIGHT, IT'S WHAT THE SOUTH DOES BEST. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THERE A LOOOOTTTTT OF SECRET SERVICE POLICE NOW AN' THEY WATCHIN' PRETTY CAREFULLY. BUT WHEN YOU GOT A WHOLE GEOGRAPHICAL REGION WITH A GIANT INFERIORITY COMPLEX THERE ARE A LOT OF LOONS TO WATCH. THE SOUTH NEVER GOT OVER THE CIVIL WAR, AN' THEY HAVEN'T EVEN TAKEN THE WRAPPER OFF CIVIL RIGHTS FO' NEGROS. THEY ONE MOTIVATION IS TO PUNISH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FOR THE INDIGNITIES THEY SUFFER IN THEY MINDS. BUT THE SOUTH IS NOT A HOMOGENEOUS PLACE. THE AMERICAN BANKING INDUSTRY HAS MOVED SOUTH AN' THAT'S WHERE THE ENERGY INDUSTRY IS TOO. THE DEFENSE INDUSTRY AN' THE ARMED FORCES ARE DISPROPORTIONATELY SOUTHERN. THESE INDUSTRIES WENT THERE FOR THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF EVADING REGULATION AND THEY MADE FRIENDS - AS BES' THEY WERE ABLE - WITH THE REDNECKS. SO NOW WE GOT WELL-FINANCED, WELL ARMED REDNECKS. THIS IS CERTAINLY A FORMULA FO' DISASTER, YOU RIGHT. BUT THEY BEIN' OUT-REPRODUCED. PRETTY SOON THEY LOSE EVERYTHING THEY CLAWED BACK FO' THEYSELVES JUS' DUE TO DEMOGRAPHIC CHANGES THEY BROUGHT ON THEYSELVES TO CREATE A SOURCE OF CHEAP LABOR. IT KARMA.

Do the Feds investigate everyone who has an affair, or just the ones hand-picked by Obama?
"Paula Broadwell a Harvard researcher who co-wrote a biography of David Petraeus, is the woman with whom the retired four-star general had an affair, prompting his abrupt resignation on Friday as director of the CIA, according to Slate's Fred Kaplan.

Broadwell co-authored "All In: The Education of General David Petraeus," which was released earlier this year. According to her website, she was embedded with the general in Afghanistan from July 2010 to July 2011 and was "afforded extensive access by General Petraeus, his mentors, his subordinates, and his longtime friends."

The New York Times reported that Congressional and White House officials also believed that Broadwell had an affair with Petraeus. The AP also confirmed this report.

MSNBC's Richard Engel reported on Friday evening that the FBI is conducting an ongoing investigation into Broadwell to see whether she had improper access to Petraeus' emails and may have seen classified information. Engel added that it doesn't appear that any charges are going to be filed, and that Petraeus himself is not being investigated."

Now that Mitt Romney has lost, virtually everyone agrees that the Republican Party needs to change. Liberals say the GOP needs to become more moderate. Conservatives say it has become too moderate. In a way, both sides are right — and wrong.

The moderate Republican ticket that liberals and GOP establishment types covet has been tried recently: Mitt Romney and John McCain. Conservatives are right that a more moderate Republican Party is not the answer.

What many of them are wrong about is conservatism. To turn on talk radio or watch Fox News is not to experience the philosophy of Bill Buckley, the rhetoric of Ronald Reagan, or even something like the free market proposals of Jack Kemp. Aside from Paul Ryan’s proposals for entitlement reform—one of the few tangibly conservative and positive differences that separated the Romney and Obama tickets—the populist Right remained stuck on stupid: The President “apologizes” for America; the U.S is threatened by Sharia Law; “Where’s the birth certificate?” Obama eats dog. Donald Trump. Dinesh D’Souza.

Demagoguery, partisanship, and conspiracy theories do not represent ideas. They represent a lack of them. Throw in some clumsy language about “legitimate rape” and couple it with Romney’s Dubya impression on foreign policy, and Americans saw a “conservatism” they didn’t want. Who can blame them?

But they don’t necessarily want Barack Obama’s America either. Voters weren’t in love with George Bush when they rejected John Kerry. They just liked Kerry less. On paper, Democrats should have lost, if sour economies and high unemployment still have anything to do with how people vote. That Romney couldn’t beat Obama says far more about the Republican Party than it says about the Democrats.

The formula for victory is not being more Democrat-lite or neocon-heavy. It also does not lie in embracing socialism or abandoning social issues. The GOP can become a national party again by offering new ideas rooted in old ones.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...

If youth attitudes could shift the abortion debate, the same could be true concerning our greatest financial drain: entitlements. Unlike their parents, younger Americans do the math and do not expect Social Security and Medicare to survive. The same could be true concerning youth attitudes toward the second greatest drain on resources: A counterproductive and costly foreign policy. Unlike their parents, young people can comprehend an America that does not play policeman or provider to the world while the next generation foots the bill.

A platform of constitutionally limited government, individual freedom, and personal responsibility could provide fresh answers to the old questions that now impede the GOP’s electoral success. This is not a departure from conservatism but a return to it.

Or the Republican Party can keep recycling Bush-isms—promising more government, war, and less freedom. Constitutional conservatism is the way forward. Conservatism defined as simply hating Democrats will remain a ticket to nowhere.

The lesson of 2012 is that the Republican Party must truly become the limited government party it has always pretended to be—or it will die.

No one is without food or water__only a fkn lunatic would believe that. Plenty are without power because the power can't just be turned back on when homes have been flooded, moved off the foundations etc.

Same with the cars, they can't be hauled off until the insurance adjusters record the loss damage. There are "at least" one quarter million insured cars that were destroyed.

Andrew was never completely settled, Irene is still being settled. New Yorkers are impatient__WTF else is new?

And the response from FEMA and Obama's administration has been a disaster.
FEMA, ridiculed after Hurricane Katrina and the subject of proposed budget cuts after the financial crisis, is being praised by governors and mayors from storm-ravaged states along the East Coast.

"I have to say, the administration, the president himself and FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate have been outstanding with us so far," said Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on "Good Morning America" Tuesday. "He worked on that last night with me?offered any other assets that we needed to help."
