What a lame response. What are we two weeks out and still 80,000 customers have no service. Some of these customers are apartment complexes with a few hundred residents. Of course in your mind there are plenty of generators, those without power were simply to stoopid to fire up that generator. You are a troll, not very bright but still a troll. If president nobama told you feces was good for you, you would stock up.

Our nation’s top historians reveal that the Democratic Party gave us the Ku Klux Klan, Black Codes, Jim Crow Laws and other repressive legislation which resulted in the multitude of murders, lynchings, mutilations, and intimidations (of thousands of black and white Republicans). On the issue of slavery: historians say the Democrats gave their lives to expand it, the Republicans gave their lives to ban it.

"Taliban Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban. Insurgency is the way they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person's entire processes. And these Taliban -- is an example of how you go about to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that Insurgency may be required when [dealing with] the other side"

Last year, during the Debt Ceiling negotiations, Eric Cantor and Sen. Jon Kyl abruptly walked out of negotiations and refused to renew discussions with Democrats. As a result, America's credit rating was lowered which put a smile on Republican's faces.

Those statements simply prove that like all Republicans, you hate women. Why are you waging war on your daughter and granddaughters? Don't you know that most unwanted pregnancies are the result of rape or incest? Aren't you the least bit concerned about "women's health issues" or a "woman's right to choose"?
