I believe in social justice. I don't believe in extorting money from someone else to support the causes I believe in. Let everybody marry whoever they want - gay or straight - it doesn't always work out, sometimes it does - their problem. Not my problem - unless they have or adopt kids and we end up supporting them.
As for Benghazi, if you are privy to any actual 'facts', please share. Believe me, this one isn't going away despite attempts at comparing it with birthers. Remember, nobody got killed over a birth certificate.
This one is going to end up much worse than fast'n'furious. Start connecting the dots.
Great!

Former -

How goes the storm? So far we have gotten the winds - will probably loose power at some point. Our governor told the cities to implement Cat 4 disaster plans. They are evacuating everything below Post Road in a lot of places, inc Bridgeport.(No worries here - I am well above).

BTW I succumbed to the hype yesterday and bought another pack of AA batteries. So much for a battery shortage - at the podunk supermarket there were about a dozen displays of them - all selling well with more in store. I left thinking the storm was just a conspiracy by Energizer to sell stock.(Now looking outside - I am not so sure about that)

Preparation for martial law plans, this is a dry run, Bridgeport mayor bitching that people aren't leaving their homes to go to shelter.
Next the nanny will be telling you that you have to leave.

This is not a dry run. FEMA already opened up their camps with a special accomodation just for you.(You get a pillow mint and your own butterfly net)

Dont forget that CT is home to 2 of the most spectacular bridge failures in American history - both over the I95 corridor
I95 Mianus Bridge in the 80s - of course you remember that - you were probably living 1 mile away
Bridgeport I95 Bridge - 2002 or 2003 - though that failure was hastened by a burning truck if I recollect
My brother was on I95 in G'ch that night. I was already down here but remember it well. Much traffic in Route 1 (detour) thru town for a long time.

I think I remember the burning truck too. We had of them down here too - did a lot of damage.

I had also driven over the Mianus Bridge a few hours earlier coming home from a Simon & Garfunkel concert in the Meadowlands (those were the days, huh?). The bridge collapsed near dawn during a low traffic time, which saved lives.

I agree. But Seaside is no racist. Neither is Donald Trump. John McCain I cant speak for - except that his embrace of this new birtherism really shows that perhaps we need to provide pastures for anyone in congress more than 40 years.

So far so good. I've heard a few limbs fall in the neighbors' yards. Some steady wind and gusts; rain and ponding visible.

I think we're getting the worst of it later tonight and overnight.
I was thinking how convenient it would be to lose power only while we're sleeping!

Sounds like you're doing ok too. Better to have batteries and not need them.

But I think you'e right - the worst is ahead here and probably there too.

My mom's below the post road. My sis lost her power on g'ch/stamford border. But it's back now.

We made Jiffypop before the power goes out! Priorities,

Not so sure about the Donald.

Why single Obama out for all that scrutiny?

Though I know Letterman aplogized, maybe just for ratings/to get Donald back on the show.

They got along well the other night. Letterman even gets along with O'reilly now. I think he's mellowing in his old age,

Having a fun time walking the dog? Mine seems to be taking it in stride. Road down the street from me has been evacuated. It flooded around 11am at high tide. Expected to get worse tonight. I'm on higher ground so safe here as long as no trees fall. Getting a little stir crazy as are the kids....schools closed Mon, Tues and Wed.

Dog knows better than to go on a walk. We lost power briefly twice already (no doubt part of FRs sisters event)- at the rate the wind is blowing I doubt we will last through the evening without loosing it for real. I am watching trees going horizontal. I know about stir crazy - day care closed until further notice. According to "suggested" evac (not the mandatory evac), you should be gone by now, as well as the entire downtown.
