The liberal politically correct mindset prevents accountability, stopping huge waste of taxpayer $$s and common sense:
Mike: Free rooms are shelter-skelter
April 2, 2013
A frustrated Mayor Bloomberg yesterday blasted a policy that allows nonresidents and even foreigners to get costly beds in city homeless shelters with no questions asked.
“When I pointed it out, some said that was ludicrous,” said Bloomberg, referring to his recent statement that a person could fly a private jet into Kennedy, take a limo to the city and get a free bed.
“What is truly ludicrous is a system that allows people from across the country and the world to take advantage like this,” the mayor said in response to a report in The Post that even foreigners were living large in city shelters.
“Until we are able to ask basic, common-sense screening questions, taxpayer dollars will continue to be diverted from those who truly need it,” he said.
About 25 percent of the roughly 48,500 people living in city shelters are not city residents — including a Polish freeloader, Michal Jablonowski, who gushed about free food, phone and medical care he gets at a shelter on The Bowery.
Homeless Services Commissioner Seth Diamond agreed the rules are too lax — but said his hands are tied by a 3-decade-old consent decree that forces the city to provide shelter space to anyone who asks.
The decree settled the lawsuit Callahan v. Carey, in which advocates sued on behalf of Lower East Side vagrant Robert Callahan and other homeless people.
“People were not thinking of all of the ramifications at the time [the decree was signed],” Diamond said.“This was written in an era before litigation of these types of issues became common. It was a new world.”
ABOUT 18 MONTHS AGO, THE CITY ISSUED A NEW RULE THAT WOULD LET IT TURN SINGLE PEOPLE AWAY FROM SHELTERS IF THEY COULD BUNK WITH A FRIEND OR RELATIVE.
BUT LEGAL AID SUED AND A LOWER COURT BLOCKED THE NEW RULE, WHICH WOULD HAVE ALLOWED THE CITY TO SAVE SOME OF THE $3,000 A MONTH IT COSTS TO HOUSE AND FEED EACH ADULT. The city is appealing the ruling.
“We believe there are reasonable things the city can do to provide a system of shelters for those whose who need it in a way that’s responsible to taxpayers without burdening them with people who have alternatives,” Diamond said.
Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota called the consent decree a menace to New York taxpayers.
“I do think the court case needs to be challenged. I think the court case should allow the city to have rules and regulations that prevent the types of fraud and abuse that were described in the New York Post,” Lhota said.
Even some shelter residents said the city should pull in the welcome mat for nonresidents.
“I don’t think it’s fair. People from the city should have the first crack at it,” said Sharif Smith, 35, who is staying in the same shelter as Jablonowski.

Spoken like a true ignoramus. First of all, moron, guns do not "cause" them. MENTAL CONDITIONS DO! Additionally, if you banned all guns, people would simply find other ways so you are really just full of shit, as usual.
You're an idiot!
Some folks ride like the wind
With the whispering pines to guide them
And the burning light inside them
Keeps them warm in the snow

Others fear the sounds they hear
Make bandito’s out of mole-hills
Fill their hearts with porcupine quills
They’re dead and buried long before they go

Charlton Heston movies are no longer in demand
His immortal soul my lay forever in the sand
The angels wouldn’t take him up to heaven like he planned
‘Cause they couldn’t pry that gun from his cold dead hand

It takes a cold dead hand to decide to pull the trigger
It takes a cold dead heart and as near as I can figure
With your cold dead aim you’re trying to prove your dick is bigger
But we know your chariot may not be swinging low

Cold dead hand – cold dead hand
Cold dead hand – cold dead hand

You’re a big big man with an little bitty gland
So you need something bigger just to fill
Your cold dead hand

Imagine if the lord were here
And he knew what you’ve been thinking
Would his sacred heart be sinking
Into the canyon of dismay

And on the ones who sell the guns
He’d signal vultures and coyotes
Only the devil’s true devotees
Could profiteer from pain and fear

Charlton Heston movies are no longer in demand
His immortal soul my lay forever in the sand
The angels wouldn’t take him up to heaven like he planned
Cause they couldn’t pry that gun from his cold dead hand

It takes a cold dead hand to decide to pull the trigger
It takes a cold dead heart and as near as I can figure
With your cold dead aim you’re trying to prove your junk is bigger
But we know your chariot may not be swinging low

Cold dead hand – cold dead hand
Cold dead hand – cold dead hand
Cold dead hand – cold dead hand

You’re a big big man with an little bitty gland
So you need something bigger with a hair-pin trigger
You don’t want to get caught with your trousers down
When the psycho killer comes around
So you make your home like a thunderdome
And you’re always packing everywhere you roam
But the psycho’s win no matter what you do
Cause they’re gonna buy way more guns than you

And while you’re stumbling out of bed
They put five rounds in the back of your head
Or you get depressed ‘cause the money runs out
Then you put your own shotgun in your mouth
And your kids walk in and they find you there
Like a headless stump in your underwear
And they move the gun and it kills them too
And your wife just doesn’t know what to do
But she takes a hand grenade from her shoe
And she pulls the pin

And it’s all on you
And your cold dead hand

It amazes me that you lefties think she would have the spine to stand up to the enemies of the United States when she couldn't manage or have the dignity to divorce a man who had his genitalia sucked and ejaculated in the face of a 20-year-old employee.
It amazed me when the lefties of New York chose to elect a woman who hadn't lived a day in her life in New York as senator. Seems that celebrity is more important to pinheads than substance.
It amazes me that after she completely botched the Benghazi debacle, a stellar demonstration of her incompetence, that you lefties still think she would be competent in ANY role in which more of her employees could die.
But lefties are amazing. If they weren't constantly looking for ways to stick their hands in the pockets of taxpaying, responsible people (a. k. a. Conservatives) they would be amusing. But after years of paying for a bunch of pathetic parasites, I find them annoying.
what's really amazing are the FOX ratings considering no one pays attention to the claptrap you just posted.

He could have helped create a good immigration reform bill if he hadn't sidetracked himself with war and favors for pharma, oil, high finance, lenders, home builders and military contractors.

And his immigration plan was shouted down by members of his own party and the right leaning talking heads, Dobbs, O'Rielly etc.

I DON'T MEAN TO BRAG, BUT THIS HAS TO BE SOME OF MY BEST WORK IN DAYS ...
SISSONVILLE, W.Va.(AP)— Shain Gandee lived for the outdoors, often going on muddy, off-road thrill rides in the hills near his West Virginia home. A recent late-night escapade ended in tragedy for the MTV reality show cast member and two others.
The popular "BUCKWILD" cast member was found dead Monday inside a sport utility vehicle belonging to his family that was found partially submerged in a deep mud pit about a mile from his home near Sissonville, authorities said. Also inside were the bodies of his uncle and another man.
Kanawha County Sheriff's Cpl. B.D. Humphreys said the red-and-white 1984 Ford Bronco's muffler was below the surface and that mud covered the passenger side. No foul play is suspected.
Authorities said the cause of the deaths was still under investigation and they refused to speculate on what happened. If the muffler was submerged and the engine kept running, it's possible the cabin of the vehicle could have filled with fatal carbon monoxide from the exhaust.
Shain, nicknamed "Gandee Candy" by fans, was a breakout star of the show that followed the antics of a group of young friends enjoying their wild country lifestyle. It was filmed last year, mostly around Sissonville and Charleston. Many of its rowdy exploits were his idea. In one episode, he turned a dump truck into a swimming pool.
Gandee was a true outdoorsman, shedding modern conveniences such as cell phones and computers for his proud redneck ways. He loved to hunt, ride all-terrain vehicles and go "mudding," or off-road driving. He went mudding in the show's first episode and ruined his pickup truck's motor.
"Shain always rides with these kids in four-wheelers and trucks," said a neighbor, Swanna Frampton, who had known him since he was a small child. "They were just out riding and having a good time."
oh yeah, great work, perpetuating the stereotype.

and i thought yesterday was Fools day.

December 16,1998 WASHINGTON (CNN)-- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes against Iraq and starts war with Iraq.

"Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with NUCLEAR ARMS, poison gas or biological weapons," Clinton said.

Our mission is to attack Iraq's NUCLEAR, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors," said Clinton.

Based on his interviews with O'Neill and several other officials at the meetings, Suskind writes that the planning envisioned peacekeeping troops, war crimes tribunals, and even divvying up Iraq's oil wealth.

He obtained one Pentagon document, dated March 5, 2001, and entitled "Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield contracts," which includes a map of potential areas for exploration.

"It talks about contractors around the world from, you know, 30-40 countries. And which ones have what intentions," says Suskind. "On oil in Iraq."

During the campaign, candidate Bush had criticized the Clinton-Gore Administration for being too interventionist: "If we don't stop extending our troops all around the world in nation-building missions, then we're going to have a serious problem coming down the road. And I'm going to prevent that."

"The thing that's most surprising, I think, is how emphatically, from the very first, the administration had said 'X' during the campaign, but from the first day was often doing 'Y,'" says Suskind. "Not just saying 'Y,' but actively moving toward the opposite of what they had said during the election."

For out-of-towners seeking “four-star’’ accommodations here, there’s The Waldorf, The Pierre, The Plaza — and the city’s homeless shelters.

“People pay $3,000 for an apartment here, and I get to live here for free!” said Michal Jablonowski, 25, who moved back to the city from his native Poland three years ago and is now staying in a Bowery shelter.

“I have food. I have health care. It’s great,’’ Jablonowski said.“Here, the city supports you. The city helps you with everything.’’

City shelters boasting generous resources have increasingly become havens for out-of-towners, statistics show.

My fellow citizens, events in Iraq have now reached the final days of decision. For more than a decade, the United States and other nations have pursued patient and honorable efforts to disarm the Iraqi regime without war. That regime pledged to reveal and destroy all its weapons of mass destruction as a condition for ending the Persian Gulf War in 1991.

Since then, the world has engaged in 12 years of diplomacy. We have passed more than a dozen resolutions in the United Nations Security Council. We have sent hundreds of weapons inspectors to oversee the disarmament of Iraq. Our good faith has not been returned.

The Iraqi regime has used diplomacy as a ploy to gain time and advantage. It has uniformly defied Security Council resolutions demanding full disarmament. Over the years, U.N. weapon inspectors have been threatened by Iraqi officials, electronically bugged, and systematically deceived. Peaceful efforts to disarm the Iraqi regime have failed again and again -- because we are not dealing with peaceful men.

Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised. This regime has already used weapons of mass destruction against Iraq's neighbors and against Iraq's people.

The regime has a history of reckless aggression in the Middle East. It has a deep hatred of America and our friends. And it has aided, trained and harbored terrorists, including operatives of al Qaeda.

The danger is clear: using chemical, biological or, one day, nuclear weapons, obtained with the help of Iraq, the terrorists could fulfill their stated ambitions and kill thousands or hundreds of thousands of innocent people in our country, or any other.

The United States and other nations did nothing to deserve or invite this threat. But we will do everything to defeat it. Instead of drifting along toward tragedy, we will set a course toward safety. Before the day of horror can come, before it is too late to act, this danger will be removed.

The United States of America has the sovereign authority to use force in assuring its own national security. That duty falls to me, as Commander-in-Chief, by the oath I have sworn, by the oath I will keep.

Recognizing the threat to our country, the United States Congress voted overwhelmingly last year to support the use of force against Iraq. America tried to work with the United Nations to address this threat because we wanted to resolve the issue peacefully. We believe in the mission of the United Nations. One reason the UN was founded after the second world war was to confront aggressive dictators, actively and early, before they can attack the innocent and destroy the peace.

In the case of Iraq, the Security Council did act, in the early 1990s. Under Resolutions 678 and 687 - both still in effect - the United States and our allies are authorized to use force in ridding Iraq of weapons of mass destruction. This is not a question of authority, it is a question of will.

Last September, I went to the U.N. General Assembly and urged the nations of the world to unite and bring an end to this danger. On November 8, the Security Council unanimously passed Resolution 1441, finding Iraq in material breach of its obligations, and vowing serious consequences if Iraq did not fully and immediately disarm.

Typically, the government is focusing on the symptom and not the cure. Putting a Band-Aid on an infected wound only covers up the problem. It just becomes more infected.

It's almost impossible to address mental illness based on laws that prevent taking action even within the medical profession.

Changing the laws is the first solution. In most crimes involving mental illness, there were red flags but present laws prevented the perpetrators from getting the professional help they needed.
