<quoted text>I didn't see any mention of FoxNews in this opinion piece. But you can choose to believe what you want. I had to read your link because I haven't seen any reports that are calling this worse than Katrina, in fact just the opposite. The author used a the usual leftist device of code words without identifying specific sources, leaving the reader to assume "FOX NEWS".
I think I was probably more tuned into Katrina than folks in the NEast. I was online at NOLA forum when the people were reporting what was happening before the news or FEMA knew. And I contributed a nice amount to help everybody, knowing full well the racial makeup of the area. This racist labelling of conservatives by the liberal opinion people is disgusting. However, after seeing that the Red Cross wasn't very efficient during Katrina, this time I chose a Chabad synagogue that I trust will use donations effectively.
One codeword that I find very funny is 'Chicago'- after Obama was elected, liberals started whining that we use 'Chicago' as a secret racial code. Maybe that's how liberal minds work, but to me "Chicago" (in the election sense) has always meant corruption, election stealing, and dead voters, and sometimes dead politicians. Even when I considered myself a Democrat.
Chicago = corruption = election cheating = dead voters = the Democratic party of New Mexico

But Mr. Romney’s chances of winning the Electoral College have slipped, and are now only about 8 percent according to the forecast model — down from about 30 percent 10 days ago.

<quoted text>So, your point? The paper backed Obama in 2008. Zuckerman is a Democrat. Perhaps reality has set in, along with a dozen other major newspapers that previously support Obama.
"The presidential imperative of the times is to energize the economy and get deficits under control to empower the working and middle classes to again enjoy the fruits of an ascendant America.
“So the News is compelled to stand with Romney.”
People have a right to change their minds. Right or wrong.

What specicially would Romney do to "energize the economy?"

He's been a little short on specifics.

Any idea how he will offset the $5 trillion in tax cuts?

Why the big secret?

Rudy Guiliani defends Michael Bloomberg for handling of crisis. FEMA response feeble at best. With 5 days advance warning, why didn't FEMA have water supplies stationed nearby, same with gasoline trucks? In other words, FEMA dropped the ball again.
More BS.

Bloomburg and governors were offered whatever they wanted ahead of time.

__________

Seriously. He really did this with a hurricane barreling towards the Northeast that forecasts now indicate will produce 10-20 ft. waves in New York City on top of the higher water we can already expect. President Obama directed FEMA Director Craig Fugate to call Mayor Bloomberg earlier in the day to offer assistance. Governor Cuomo had asked for FEMA aid. Bloomberg said thanks, but no thanks. He said we had what we needed.

Thats funny, none of the Quebecans in my neighborhood have that sticker.
I just found out that in my parents neighborhood one of their neighbors fled the night after the storm, to return to find out someone had burglarized his house.
I also found out that the Quebecans were working the night shift and sleeping it off at the Hyatt Regency. nice. Hope they used the jacuzzi.
Great breakfast buffet!

We've stayed there a few times.

If you combine the weekend special with a AAA discount, it's a good deal. With breakfast included.

Self-parking in the back used to be free - now they even charge for that.

Just got back from donating clothing to the relief effort headed down to Staten Island. From what I can see, there was a pretty hefty response.
That's great.

I also heard they needs lots of trash bags.

Unfortunately.

It would be a little weird paying to stay there considering I live less than a mile from there but I will check out their breakfast. I have been in that building maybe twice in my life, and pass by it probably at least twice a day.

I'm kind of troubled by the whole coordinated response issue. It is Red Cross that traditionally does this, but the residents were complaining about neglect, so they put out a plea so some of our local synagogues and churches responded.

How about this for a fact. Your fantasy interpretation does not stand up in a court of law. And ultimately, that is what matters, not your hot air.
No, applicability of the law matters, without it the court has no jurisdiction.

Luckily i don't pay car tax or property tax, although you can argue if I rent then a portion of that goes to pay taxes.

Just wait until we get the first accident due to incompetence with a tree chipper
make sure your guy is insured - on my parents block someone got killed a few years ago, and another house down the block had a tree fall on it during removal.
Well if you hire someone that is licensed by government you will pay more, enjoy it.

Once again you enter an area you obviously know nothing about.

There is no correlation between price and Licensing. A CT arborist license is about $120, renewable every three years or so. The gatekeeping into the profession is the certification exam (and Continuing Ed units), not the licensing fees.

The real difference in fees is between the insured and the uninsured businesses, and that IS buyer beware, b/c as a homeowner you are personally liable if your uninsured worker screws up.

The majority of licensed professions in CT have a very minor fee. Even the annual LLC renewal fee is less than $200.

Too late. I mowed the lawn (hopefully for the last time this season) yesterday and did the leaves the day before.

I voted YES on every item asking for expansion of government, except one, which I chose not to vote because I havent been folowing the issue (Fire)
