Has nothing to do with anything some of those same people believe in killing a fetus and eugenics.

Ron Paul is a smart conservative, but the fact of the matter is that you are trying to tout these phony conservatives supporting Obama.

What has Obama really done? bottom line is that nobody should be reliant on government in emergencies because they are the most incompetent members of society.

Jim Jones is a good example of collectivism.

Collectivism is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.

Yes, I find it humorous that Obama is stating that all the red tape (think government) is going to be set aside to deal with this calamity.

Spoken more like a divider than a uniter.

Paul is not a conservative.

Libs are supposed to be "fiscally conservative and socially tolerant."

Didn't you get the memo?

Rudy was lionized for basically doing his job.

Biden said it best in 2008.

"But let's face it: Rudy is still hurting from Biden's withering assessment of him from the 2008 campaign, "There's only three things he mentions in a sentence a noun, a verb, and 9/11."

Sorry.

I shouldn't have called you clueless. My bad.

Now go back and read and respond.

Did this great country of ours ever do anything regrettable?

Or are we like the Pope?

No, the unibomber is an example of a CIA agent that went nuts when he realized the technocracy that is in the plans for the future.

Accepted. Yes we have, numerous times. We may disagree on which are bad, and which are badder. But in which country would you rather live?

I was thinking about your post while I was walking this morning and remembered an instructor I had a while back in a software class - he came here from India about 20 years ago, not to get anything except an opportunity to excel. During break we got into politics and he told us when he received his citizenship papers, he was asked if he wanted to register to vote. His answer - "Absolutely! Give me a Republican form."

Finally, someone comes out with a video explaining redistribution. I've used this example with my kids when they thought they should have the same as everyone else.

Nytimes estimated the marathon generates 340 million dollars in spending, in part due to 20,000 runners from overseas.

My initial reaction was that it should be cancelled, but then I figured that post 911 NY takes it resiliency seriously. But 340 M is a large chunk of chain, and obviously that was the driving factor to keep in going.

Guliani was a horribly divisive mayor. A lot of people were fed up with him. Then 911 happened and to his credit, he rose to the occasion. But he then blew all of that by marketing himself as "the 911 guy" after he finished his term. Overplayed his hand.

Bloomberg, until his last reelection was very well liked, and not very divisive. Almost the opposite of Rudy. Until he strong armed a charter revision so that he could run for a 3rd term. That left a bad taste in many people. But his performance since then has been generally good, and for someone to push the notion that he is not being empathatic shows that they are radically unfamiliar with our region.

Storm notes to FR and COR

Yesterday the local traffic was terrible. We were literally being invaded by NY and NJ plates. Made me wonder what type of desperation would propell someone to drive 50-70+ miles round trip just to fill up with gas.

And if this panic is just going to get worse.

This morning I went to my local park and discovered its parking lot was being used as a staging area for the utilities. I counted no less that 100 bucket trucks from Quebec, and probably 50 Tree removal trucks. I would hope they were all sleeping off their shift, if not - there is no excuse for not fixing the power by the end of the day for the entire southwest CT.

I also hope for the sake of Canada that there are no power outages in Quebec - as all their personal appears to be here.

Red tape is just a political codeword - fodder for people like you so you can relax.

Regulation is generally acceptable to most people, as long as they dont have to follow it themselves.

Responses to situations tend to be triaged. Right now we are in the emergency stage. Most governments have emergency powers within their executive branch that allow some type of suspension of normal regulation for emergencies. We went through with this after Irene - its not a new concept. Once things stabilize, and the emergency phase is over then "red tape" i,e, regulation will resume, as it is intended to function. None of this is really news or anything unique to any chief government executive.

(p) Ezekiel was the son of man, Who had a
Special Message of Hope, so naturally heaven got a mention, but then it was not taken up, because Our Lord decreed it so.
If the Jews had access to the Tree of Life
they would be God 1000 times over every single day. Or so I believe.
No prophet, that the Jews accepted ever
sanctioned any other adjudication other
than the Sadducees. I don't say who does or does not gain acceptance into heaven, but it's not a concept associated to inclusion in the Old Testament except as unofficial.
I don't think its a political relevance as this discussion would indicate, although enjoyable, my perspective is totally metaphysical, and I invite no participation except on that level. And as of now not disclosed.
I thought response would be Elijah and Elisha.
