'Cuomo’s adult-home order is crazy: critics
By CHUCK BENNETT
Posted: 1:08 AM, January 22, 2013
The city’s population of mentally deranged street people may explode because of new regulations signed by Gov. Cuomo last week that forbid privately run adult homes from accepting new residents, advocates warned.
“Hospitals can’t discharge to us,” said Jeffrey Edelman, who runs adult homes in Queens and The Bronx.“Within a week, the hospitals will be starting to get backed up, and they are going to have big problems.”
The change is part of the state’s efforts to comply with a federal court ruling that found institutionalizing the mentally ill in adult homes wrongly segregates them.
An estimated 4,000 to 6,000 mentally ill people, the majority in New York City, could be affected.
“My residents need reminders several times a day to take their medications and see their doctors,” Edelman said.“My residents used to be in homeless shelters and went from hospital to hospital.”

Just about every liberal/Democrat I know has an "issue".

Liberals are nuts.

I bet a weeks pay Leosnan is bipolar.

Those folks all have something. They are easy pray for the government class hate promoters now called Democrats. They value votes, not common sense. Cuomo is a wingnut.

Support Grows for Roe v. Wade
Seven in 10 Americans believe Roe v. Wade should stand, according to new data from a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, as the landmark Supreme Court abortion-rights ruling turns 40 on Tuesday.
That is the highest level of support for the decision, which established a woman's right to an abortion, since polls began tracking it in 1989.

When was the last time you heard someone of significance speak out about Intelligent Design?
I know that neither of these issues belong to you but they are near and dear to the folks that stink up your party.
Roe v. Wade was a bad decision, even if one supports the right to choose.

Foreign policy decisions are difficult, Powell went with the information he had.
Powell seemed a bit tired of the Republican ticket in 2012, to his credit.
He said that he knew it wasn't true; I like Colin Powell, but he was a loyal soldier and lacked the courage needed to say no. Bush threw him to the wolves. A lesson learned from any minority who fancies himself to ever be part of the good old boys club. It never happens.

You do know that Lincoln invited Carl Marks to the US. But Marks could not leave England at that time so he sent a representative in his place. Lincoln studied Carl Marks philosophes.

I love it how the rabid right searches for a negative statistics & then harps on it.
For example, in this poor job market, more kids are going to college & getting education. This would lower your precious stat. A stat that has been decreasing since 2001.
More kids going to college and racking up huge debts studying "Communications" or "African Studies" at fourth-rate schools for jobs that do not exist is not a good thing.

Meanwhile, try to find a good independent auto mechanic, plumber, electrician, or carpenter willing to work at reasonable rates.

Why should we have foreign students obtain their education here and then leave? Is it not better to encourage them to remain here?
We open our university doors to them so they can help themselves. That's why the governments of the countries they come from pay the cost of educating them here.
If they want to stay, and they satisfy all the requirements of their home country, and the requirements of becoming a resident of the United States, then they are welcome.
But, our population is so goddam ignorant, today we can't support our modern economy without them.
So, we're back to the question:

Why do we need aliens when we have 300 goddam millin people already here and the most expensive education system in the world ready to educate them?

(You have to know the difference between the words "need" and "want" to answer that question.)

14-year-old in Henry County, Georgia unintentionally shot and killed his 15-year-old brother early Saturday morning while playing with his mother’s gun, according to police. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that charges may be brought against the teenager and his mother, who have not yet been named. Though the mother left the handgun unloaded, the brothers were apparently still able to use it.

Joe Scarborough said on Sunday that Republicans owe their majority in the House of Representatives to gerrymandering.
The MSNBC host was part of the roundtable on "Meet the Press." He lamented the loss of the Republican party's popular appeal, and recalled how William F. Buckley criticized certain elements of the conservative movement.
"That has to happen again with this party because it’s getting smaller and smaller," Scarborough said. "In this debate, we actually have conservative thinkers, talking about Ronald Reagan being a RINO — a Republican in name only, because he supported an assault weapons ban. They keep pushing themselves closer and closer to the cliff."

Joe Scarborough should step up to the plate and take an active role in politics instead of schmoozing with his morning menagerie.

Powell was a good Sec. of State, not a perfect one.
Same goes for Con. Rice and Hillary Clinton.
George Bush boycotted the Republican convention in 2012.
By 2012 the party had move so far to the right that G W B was liberal?
George Bush added prescription drug coverage to Medicare and had a proposed guest worker program.
