You on board with this?
I don't think I should get stuck with the bill for other people's poor health choices. Not that my choices are all that great so how about we just have everybody pay their own way and be done with it?

Newark Mayor Cory Booker Helps Rescue Freezing Dog
While out working on a story in freezing New Jersey, a reporter and camera crew from New York station WABC-TV noticed a dog left out in the cold.
Hours later, when they passed by again and saw that the dog was still outside, they decided to take the issue to Twitter, and the mayor.
Reporter Toni Yates tweeted Newark Mayor Cory Booker and WABC. In the tweet, she applauded Newark for its heat help, but added,“Make pet owners get their dogs out of the cold.”
In another tweet, she wrote that she asked the block captain to “do something, call someone,” but doubted he would.
People began re-tweeting the messages, and soon enough the mayor was on the scene with the shivering dog.
“This is brutal weather. This dog is shaking really bad and you just can’t leave your dogs out here on a day like this and go away and expect them to be OK,” the mayor told WABC.“Hypothermia on any animal including a human animal will set in pretty quickly. So this is very sad. You can just feel the dog shaking pretty badly.”
Booker picked up the dog and put it into the back of a police car.
“If you’d crank up that heat, I’d appreciate it,” he told the police officer.
Booker, 43, called the dog’s owner and told them it was unacceptable to leave the dog outside in the freezing weather, WABC reported.
The owners said they were in Queens, N.Y., and did not know that Cha Cha had gotten outside. They said it was an accident and thanked the mayor for saving the dog, a new mother.
Booker, who’s exploring a run for U.S. Senate, later tweeted the reporter,“Because of you that dog was rescued. Thank you for reaching out. Thank u for your kindness.”
This is not the first time Mayor Booker has come to the rescue.
Booker returned home one evening in April to find flames shooting out of his neighbor’s home. A woman screamed that her daughter was still inside.
The mayor and two of his security detail ran inside to rescue the woman, who Booker said he had known for years. He carried her out of the building over his shoulder and the woman was treated for smoke inhalation and released.

This frickin' guy is everywhere. Me thinks a big future is ahead of him.
I love stories like that. If only more people looked out for animals who have heartless owners - not necessarily in this instance - but there are heartless owners nevertheless and their animals always comes first.

No matter the consequences.

Remember when you could money into a savings account and actually earn interest. Anyone else old enough to remember that?
That was the silver lining in the Carter administration Homer, if one already owned a home and had a fair amount of savings__it was smooth sailing with CD rates exceeding 10% and six month jumbo CD's returning as high as 18%.

Back then most existing home mortgages were fixed ranging in the 4.5% to 6.5% range and many were transferable with no qualification, what a beautiful fn thing that was. Well maybe not for realtors or mortgage brokers but it was for the hip homeowners.

Also__back then, closed meant closed in banking leaving Saturday's and Sunday's open to the imagination Hah. Many businesses that handled large amounts of money would transfer the money from checking into savings over the weekend just to pick up the interest.

I really enjoyed banking back when it was face to face.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!!

Waxturd, the sockpuppet master, accuses others of the same behavior.

Whiole he creates multiple sockpuppets and uses them all at once.

There is a difference, moonbat.

Ghost uses one screenname at a time, while you use about 10 of them simultaneously!!

"Not Surprised" has kept everyone aware of the idiocy of Waxturd, holed up in Windsor, CT, with sockpuppets all over the USA.

Tell us more abourt your Ivy League education, Jimmy.

After all, you are one of Waxturd's 'children'/

So if Waxturd's 2-3 decades younger than Ghost, Ghost would have to be either 95 or 105.

Highly unlikely. You've been on SS for a decade.

You really enjoy telling big, fat lies, don't you??

Funny how everyone can see right through them!!

I would never judge Homer no matter how inappropritate his dress.

Maybe his behavior...unless he makes me laugh...even so, there are limits if you know what I mean.

Perhaps if you or Peppy showed up with him...just to keep him from crossing the line.

Okay, just Peppy. <smile>

Who do you think you're kidding??

You're the Topix Drama Queen. As in "I'm leaving forever" followed a day later by "I'm back", changing from Carol to Lorac, etc.

Now you've gone beyond that stupidity and moved onto creating multiple 'Carol's' in an attempt to get attention.

Your nonsense was being mocked by all, so you created alternate Carol's so you'd have something new to bitch about.

You're such a phony, it's amazing. Now you're a 'multiple Carol' phony.

Such a good Christian!!

Wonder if Obama will keep chewing Nicorette gum after this term ends?

But nothing like having total control over human behavior even you practice the same behavior, huh?

However, someone pointed out the other day that smokers will end up saving the taxpayers a lot of money - when you think about it.
