Bits and Pieces

Union thugs (IBEW) from NJ and NY have decided the people of those states should be powerless and possibly die to preserve their special status. Florida power crews were told to “pay dues or stay home”. Crews from Georgia were turned away in NY for refusing to join the union…. Here  and  Here…… Is it any wonder why unions are becoming so despised by the majority of Americans? So many people in so much pain and the IBEW is worried about who belongs to the union? How selfish and inhumane, how callous they are being.

Governor Christie had to step in and threaten to enact an emergency order to stop the union abuses.

He would use his emergency-management powers, he said, to guarantee that  nonunion crews could help restore his state’s electricity grid without  interference.

“I’ve been on the phone with PSE&G [Public Service Electric and Gas  Company], JCP&L [Jersey Central Power & Light] and the union, and  they’ve all absolutely promised me they would never turn away a single worker  whether they were union or nonunion, and I wouldn’t allow it,” Christie told  reporters shortly after 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon.

“I would invoke my powers under the Disaster Control Act to prevent that from  happening, but they’ve assured me we don’t have to.”

Bloomberg is shocked, just shocked by his constituents attitudes….

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was ambushed  by angry constituents during a visit to one storm  storm-ravaged  neighborhood of the city on Saturday.

‘When are we going to get some f****** help?’  one woman demanded of the billionaire mayor.

After six days without power, some New  Yorkers are losing their patience with the response from the city.

The mayor’s surprise visit to the Rockaway,  Queens, which was flooded out by the storm and then decimated by horrific fires,  was greeted by angry residents who said they were only now beginning to receive  aid.

‘There’s old ladies in my building that don’t  got nothing,’ one furious man told Bloomberg.

The exchange, which left the mayor at a loss  for explanations, was captured by a NY  1 TV crew who happened to be in the  neighborhood at the same time.

As you all know the Marathon was cancelled but, the residents are still very much up in arms. When will people realize big government can’t keep the promises they make.  Video at the link, bottom of the page

When you’ve lost the studentsforobama crowd…..???

In the past four years, we have changed. We once supported President Obama. Obama made many good promises. Obama seemed non-partisan and willing to bring about change. He was charismatic. We were excited to see what would come of his administration. Sadly, Obama has failed us, instituting policies that have negatively affected us.

Because of this, Students For Obama has become Students No Longer For Obama. We have awakened to the President’s failures, and we feel that it is time for a change. It’s time to allow someone else a chance in the Oval Office. Obama doesn’t deserve four more years of reckless behavior.

It’s almost over, our local stations are non-stop political ads, it’s close in OH or BO wouldn’t be coming here so many times in the next couple of days….keep the faith and remember there are many ways to win..

open thread….

    I keep saying how sorry I feel for the victims of Sandy and it’s more than the loss of their loved ones or their personal property; they are still in shock and don’t realize that many of them will never live in that “old” neighborhood again. Their houses won’t be rebuilt because of new regulations or won’t be “fixed” because they’re too old and too much damage has been done.
    I also feel sorry for them because they thought the government would jump right in and help them. We know out here in fly-over country that our neighbors and community will be the ones who help, no matter who you are.
    They think FEMA is going to help them, sure, with a low-interest LOAN, if they qualify.
    If you already have a mortgage, a new loan isn’t feasible.

    The union thugs, just like a lot of criminals that prey on those suffering, should be ashamed, but we know they won’t. The Mayor of NYC is a pompous, too rich man who wants to control everything and cares about no one.

    • Sharon Calderone

      I shared the story about the unions turning away help with the Sandy recovery effort and someone posted the following together with a comment saying the story is not true. What to believe?

      • Governor Christie threatened to enact an emergency act. A 300 page “contract” was sent to the non-union crews on Oct 29. They refused to sign them. After Christie’s statement to the media things smooothed out.

  2. Ladies, I woke up in a great mood today. THIS is going to be an awesome week.

    As for the unions, I hope this behavior turns people off and is held against union-supporting candidates in the future. May God bless the people affected by Sandy.

    (I’m “Barbara Johanson”–not my real name):”He has that neat home theater Situation Room, where he can watch 7-hr live videos of an American Emabssy being attacked & Americans die”!

  4. Listening to Romney’s speech today from IA, he will do what he says. He makes me feel good about us. I am so tired of the fatigue of the BO -residency. He bruises us in spectacular ways, wears on our well being and is so depressing.

  5. Annie's Mom

    If Gallup is correct, Tuesday will be a long night for Democrats:

    • Mr President and his First Lady….sounds so good to me…can’t wait to vote on Tuesday

    • Carole

      Thanks Aniie’s Mom. That is a loving picture of the Romneys. As I stood in the line at the market I saw that one of the rag magazines had an article about Mooch still wanting to divorce Barry. So it must be a problem for Mooch to go out and plead for votes for old Barry to be re-elected.

    • I love the look on his face. This is a man who thanks God for every day that he gets to be Ann’s husband.

  7. Just got a call from a Romney phone bank in Cuyahoga County…..She is a Democrat working the phones for Romney…she also said “you won’t believe how many Democrats are here doing this”..told me we had volunteers from TX canvassing in the county for Romney. They gave up their vacations, flew here on their own dime. Told her about this blog and several others that were run by Dems who are supporting Romney and how hard we’re working to turn this around. Most of us now feel we’re Indies. How reassuring is that?

    • Annie's Mom

      Cool! I wish I could talk to someone…all I get are robocalls…

    • The Original

      I haven’t gotten one call. The Dems are confident they have my state, Washington. They probably have. Christie has been here one time. Romney has never been here. Obama has been here at fundraisers with the 1% that live in the Seattle area. That is it.

      • Carole

        I got two calls and they wanted to know if I was a Democrat and who was I voting for on Nov.6th. Must have been unhappy when I said my husband and I already voted for Romney and sent it in over 4 weeks ago.

  8. endorse….
    “Not enough hope and too little change.

    That is President Barack Obama’s record on the economy, debt and Washington gridlock after four years in the White House.

    The State Journal editorial board endorses Mitt Romney in Tuesday’s presidential election.

    Romney showed as the Republican governor of Democratic-leaning Massachusetts that he can find agreement across the partisan divide. And his vice presidential pick — Wisconsin’s U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville — suggests Romney is serious about tackling America’s fiscal mess.”

    So according to Bayh and Sabato on Fox just now, the Senate will remain in Dem hands because a couple of GOP candidates blew it (in Indiana and Missouri) and Obama is going to squeak through with an electoral college win. If their predictions stay true, 4 more years of uselessness is over the horizon.

    I just pray they are very, very wrong.

  10. Carole

    The Original I hope they are wayyy so wrong!!!

    • The Original

      I just don’t think we can survive 4 more years of this administration. We need someone who will think about the nation, not their petty little issues.

      • At least Romney smiles and not scowls. Obama seems to scowl all the time, and when he does smile, it’s a horrible rictus grin.
        My sister hasn’t smiled in forever, and yet she’s still voting Obama. I just don’t understand why. She wails that her husband can’t find a job and I keep asking, “What job? You want I should give him a slow boat ticket to China?”
        I’m looking at my cottage that I bought in the Bush era, and there’s still so much renovation to be done. I had to wait four years due to the economy that didn’t pick up, it fell down.
        If Romney wins the election, it will feel like Christmas to me. I’m that anxious for that day, and I’m hoping and praying.
        We need to make our country habitable for companies to set up and work, we need companies that aren’t forced to be union.
        I’d love for Glenn Beck to move one of his clothing factories to Ohio. My brother in law is a good worker, and it would solve so many problems.

        • If Romney wins the election, it will feel like Christmas to me. I’m that anxious for that day, and I’m hoping and praying.

          Oh yes, me too!! 😀

  11. Waiting for 2012

    I live in SE PA. Hardly any campaign signs here, but most are for Romney! May I remind you where I live: PENNSYLVANIA? 🙂

    I can’t judge by our neighborhood, which is a shame: 500 houses. No signs. This is the second Presidential election that I’ve lived here–and no signs in 2008, either. I think the HOA forbids them.

    • The Original

      There is not one Obama sign where I live. Now, I live in a rural community, but the only signs I have seen are Romney signs.

    • Clinton is going to be in your neck of the woods on Monday for 4 rallies….yep, BO is scared.

      • All of the signs in my enclave are Romney. It’s really not fair for me to say that, because many of the people who four years ago that had Obama signs lost their houses, no joke. Out of a block of eight houses, there are four households left, all Romney supporters.

  12. EPA going gung-ho to destroy coal plants…
    “More than 50 EPA staff are now crashing to finish greenhouse gas emission standards that would essentially ban all construction of new coal-fired power plants. Never before have so many EPA resources been devoted to a single regulation. The independent and non-partisan Manhattan Institute estimates that the EPA’s greenhouse gas coal regulation will cost the U.S. economy $700 billion.

    The rush is a major sign of panic by environmentalists inside the Obama administration. If Obama wins, the EPA would have another four full years to implement their anti-fossil fuel agenda. But if Romney wins, regulators will have a very narrow window to enact a select few costly regulations that would then be very hard for a President Romney to undo.”

      I grew up near coal country. I knew a lot of miner families. They work hard at a dangerous job, are kindly, self-sufficient folks. I don’t know what they’re going to do if they close all the mines.

      • Annie's Mom

        Same thing here in NM. The coal mines are on the Navajo Rez. The 4 Corners Power Plant that supplies power to NM, CO and AZ is on the hit list. If the mines (open pit) are shut down, the Navajos will really suffer.

  13. Jackass Bloomberg….
    “Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.

    “We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.””

    • srdem65

      Oh, for Pete’s sake. What an idiot. The people of NYC who voted for this maroon deserve what they get. People are scared, there are dangerous bad people on the move in the dark and the police can’t be everywhere.

  14. Has anyone else noticed how MO has been out of the spotlight so much lately? No drooling over the fashionista in the press…weird isn’t it?

    • srdem65

      Well, she’s dressing like a fuddy-duddy now. No sprarkling tops, no boob belts, no too tight, too small, too short anything. It must be killing her to dress like a normal 50yr old woman.

      • I had to check out Mrs. O tonight (couldn’t help myself). They are down to 13 comments per post. Just two years ago they would get 80-100 on a slow day. No one cares about MO or her clothes anymore. It’s about time.

        • Annie's Mom

          Heh, heh…she’s irrelevant? What a crying shame! 🙂

      • Wearing sleeves…and pearls too LOL 😀
        Anna Wintour must be so disappointed.

        • Why must she always wear stitched together table cloths and curtains? How can those houseware made dresses cost so much?

        • Francine

          My prediction is it will be a HUGE failure and not last very long. Who would want to listen to her strange way of pronunciating words and her angry face trying to look pleasant? The American people are ready for her to fade into the woodwork.

      That crowd in Bucks County, PA, was incredible. Maybe PA is attainable.

      • Romney has BO chasing his tail…

    • Me too….so is OH

  17. The Original

    Here’s a little bit of superstition that we can all hope becomes true . . . every November 6 election date since Lincoln has been won by the GOP.

    Yes, I will grasp at anything. I just don’t see how we will survive if Obama wins.

    Did you hear about the regulation that Obama intends to hit the coal industry with if he wins? It will kill the entire industry.

    • We’re already below the target range for air emissions by 19%. The whole thing the EPA is doing is totally unnecessary.

    • Francine

      Obama will be unstoppable with pushing through his negative agenda if he wins a second term. Remember, as he passed on to Putin, he will have more leeway to do what he wants. Pray everyone!

  18. I’d love to be able to read the cards or the stars, just to alleviate some of the anxiety I feel.
    I should say ‘anxiety’, because I’m truly feeling hope for Nov. 6th.

  19. Early voting causes a mess….if you have 8 days to vote before election day, waiting until the last minute seems to me to be just plain stupidity.

    • The Original

      Yahoo is so pro-Obama. I think they are setting up FL for voter fraud lawsuits for the Dems. It is pretty pathetic.

      • Also having a hissy fit in OH. Ticked off because the early voting site was only open from 1-5 on Sunday. Today they close at 2. They have had 3 weeks to vote early here. The whine starts.

  20. srdem65

    I watched the video of the “heckler” at BO’s speech in a high school gym. All the man did was hold up a poster with images of aborted children and they hauled him away in handcuffs.
    It wasn’t the man making the noise, it was the Obots who were the offenders.
    Stunning and shocking.

    Michelle Obama asks us to imagine if BO can do this in 4 yrs, imagine what he can do in another 4 yrs!

    Oh. So many women suffering from breast cancer.
    Please, dear God, let us, help us find a cure for this disease that attacks women.

    • help us find a cure for this disease that attacks women.
      and men too…

      Amen.

    Saw this on FB but Ulsterman also has it: Valerie Jarret, the woman-behind-Obama’s-teleprompter, was quoted as saying:

    “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”

    From the time his wife goes to bed, around 10 at night, until he finally retires, at 1, Barack Obama enjoys the closest thing he experiences to privacy: no one but him really knows exactly where he is or what he’s up to. He can’t leave his house, of course, but he can watch ESPN, surf his iPad, read books, dial up foreign leaders in different time zones, and any number of other activities that feel almost normal.
