It's not hard to understand at all. The people of the US gave their federal government limited power reserving all other governmental power to the states and themselves. That's called the 10th Amendment. CT used that reserved power to offer social services. CT did not need for Congress to grant them the power. The people reserved that power to the states, including CT.
But Connecticut can only do what is expressed in the Constitution, and can't do what is expressly prohibited.

Even better - lets just read the text of the 10th amendment.
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
The general welfare clause that is much abused allows the federal government to hand out money to the states, which much of this state welfare is.
You are quoting the federal constitution, there is staqq te constitutional limitations as well, the state of ct can not just do as it pleases.

Also amazing that in 7 years, Bush couldn't find OBL while Obama did.
Nice trying to turn that all around. Stop watching Fox News.
I didn't support the surge and I don't think it was a great success. But obviously more troops = more cauualties. And that was my point.
OTOH every single life lost in Iraq was a waste, not unlike Vietnam. What was the point of either?
Obama did not find obl, stop lying.

Local plannning is local planning. Is it the local part that is hanging you up. Most people equate local with local. Like I said, I guess you favor centralized government from afar if you do nto like local control. Because that is the other option
I have no idea what the metro plan is. Whatever it is, it is not what we were discussing.
The metro plan is regional planning, they will be taking over local governments as they collapse from being bonded into infinity from people like malloy.

If you reelect Barack Obama, you can expect four more years of hurricanes just like this one.
I will bring change. I know how to prevent hurricanes. Romney 2012!
Yeah, so much for slowing the rise of the oceans - that's not happening.

And I note FEMA is just as confused as they were in 2005. Remember that Brown guy checking if his tie matched before he went on TV?

Shall we translate the tenth amendment into Uzbeki since you seem to be having an issue with the English version?

Thats all very interesting and all of that - but whatever that is it wasnt what I was referring to. I was referring to the urban planning and zoning that is, has been, and will be, executed by local people on a local level.

You need to keep your personal night terror fantasies separate from what we are discussing here.

I have no idea what you are referring to. The jury is still out as to the FEMA response, but all parties have agreed that the FEMA planning was excellant.

Cris Christie went out of his way to praise Obama today.

Chris Christie Gives Obama High Marks for Sandy Response
http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2012/1...

http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/3...
"....Mr. Romney wants to end centralized emergency relief and let states handle the load themselves, though few states can do so without federal assistance. In any event, storms, as we have seen time and time again, cross state lines.(Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, whose state may have been the hardest hit by the storm, was effusive in thanking President Obama for assistance today, drawing criticism from Republicans who are more interested in politics than recovery.)...
....Mr. Romney ignored all questions this morning about his plans for federal emergency management. Itís probably embarrassing to admit those plans consist largely of collecting soup cans..."

I favor no control, why are you so concerned about controlling others from near or afar?

Sounds like you weathered the storm fine.
All day today there were sirens. Not to Gwich either. Overall, the downed trees were not as bad as the March 2010 storm. Frankly, after that, after Irene, and after last years Halloween storm, there are not that many trees left to fall. That said, I saw 5 houses within 10 minute walk of my street that were crunched by trees. I was terrified all last night - we have some tall trees near our house too. But I think the real story are the properties that floated away - dunno how many in here, but likely plenty up the coast.

Chris can be strident for sure.

But he speaks from the heart. I like him.

He knows when the other side is using dog whistle politics - you know - being racist.

Ann is just a flamr thrower for the sake of it.

I think Bill Maher used to do her.

When I had cable, Chris used to give me a headache. Reminds me of Tom Ashbrook from NPR OnPoint - both use 5 sentences to express a single sentence question.
