White House seeks $60.4 billion for Sandy reconstruction


Comment: Baloney Yes Baloney

They built it they can rebuild it not the taxpayer! (these states, with the highest tax burdens in the nation: New Jersey at 11.8% of income, New York at 11.7% of income) and they want every one else to bail them out, get rid of State Income Taxes, then it would be a different situation.
And just think they want every one else to rebuild their state, now before you tell me to stick it in my ear, people who live inland should get the help but not any one who lives on the coast or flood land who know that this time is inevitable and will definitely cause this much damage, so like they are always telling people, buyer, but in this case builder beware, you are responsible for what you do.

It not the responsibility of the U.S. Taxpayer or Insurance Company to KEEP rebuilding these homes because people wanted to build there, and the Government agencies in these states, Counties and cities are the ones who allow this to happen because the are GREEDY for as much taxes they can get away with.

They want you to believe that it is the responsibility of the Government to build sea walls to protect these homes, but look a what happen in LOUISIANA, a lot of the City is behind a seawall, where did the water go after the storm, it didn’t, it stayed there until they could get pumps to get red or it, the same thing will happen if you do the same thing  everywhere you want to keep the water out, pumps will be needed to get the water out, and this means more destruction.

So the moral of the story is, the people who real need the help from the Insurance and Government can not afford to pay the premiums because of the greedy who build where they should not.

White House seeks $60.4 billion for Sandy reconstruction

By Olivier Knox, Yahoo! News The Ticket

President Barack Obama formally asked Congress Friday for $60.4 billion to help states such as New Jersey and New York rebuild in the aftermath of devastating Superstorm Sandy.

“Our Nation has an obligation to assist those who suffered losses and who lack adequate resources to rebuild their lives,” acting Office of Management and Budget Director Jeffrey Zients said in a letter to Republican House Speaker John Boehner and Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

“Although estimates of the total damage of Hurricane Sandy remain in flux, current projections are that Sandy is on track to be the second or third most costly natural disaster in U.S. history, behind Hurricane Katrina (2005) and close to Hurricane Andrew (1992),” Zients wrote.

The emergency spending aid request “includes efforts to repair damage to homes and public infrastructure and to help affected communities prepare for future storms,” he said.

The news came a day after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie met with Obama and top aides behind closed doors at the White House and then canvassed Capitol Hill.

Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo released a joint statement praising the bill, saying it would help the region “to recover, repair and rebuild better and stronger than before” and would offer states “maximum flexibility” in how to use the funds.

“We thank President Obama for his steadfast commitment of support and look forward to continuing our partnership in the recovery effort,” Christie and Cuomo said in the joint statement.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg noted in a separate statement that the White House proposal did not include “everything requested” by officials in the region. Last month, state and local officials estimated that New York and New Jersey had incurred more than $80 billion in damages when the storm hit in late October.

Bloomberg also said officials “have always been realistic about the fiscal restraints facing the federal government. Now it’s up to Congress to come together and work in a bipartisan fashion. We need a full recovery package to be voted on in this session of Congress. Any delay will impede our recovery.”

White House decided to downplay the expensive Halloween party


By Was there a cover up by the Media
Tue.01-10-2012

Is this how we save money when this country is so far in debt, and when people are losing every thing, and then have media cover it up as usual.

Is this any way for our Government to show our kids how to save money and learn its value.

Now that it is out they want to down play it as though it was nothing.

Does it figure, close twenty stores, cut nearly Two thousand JOBS, then start in 2012 and open TEN to Twenty new stores per year, where does all this Education come in, well lets put it this way, College Education only produces greed not an Education.

And when you read the rest you will see that there is more to come, and what is Obama doing about it, wasting taxpayer money flying all over trying to get reelected saying that he has a jobs bill that will put people back to work, HAS ANY ONE SEEN THAT JOBS BILL that he says he has, or is it just talk like every thing else, all talk.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Lowe’s Cos Inc said on Monday it is closing 20 of its U.S. stores, eliminating nearly 2,000 jobs, and the home improvement retailer now plans to open far fewer locations in the future, citing the need to improve its profitability.

Lowe’s, which operates about 1,700 stores in the United States, said it closed 10 stores on Sunday and would close another 10 within a month. The expenses associated with the closing will come to 17 cents to 20 cents per share. Continue reading

The Eve Of Our Destruction


By Fed Up                 Start Saying NO to every thing that comes along and MEAN IT!!!!!
8/22/11                                    If the truth hurts tough!!!
                                            

Have you ever noticed how things happen, and they say it is for a reason, then there are people make things happen for a reason, and that reason is ME, MYSELF, and I (more money or profit), better known as the HELL with any one else, and you really see this when you drive around this country, they are building Accident Circles, tearing up roads and take property to put Gardens and trees in the center where to get to a business, you have to go to the next intersection and make a U-turn and go back to the business you want to go to, and by doing this it wears out your tires faster and uses more fuel, then if you can’t make the turn in one pass you have to watch out for cars behind you turning or wanting to also make a U-turn, and they don’t maintain them, then if they do maintain them they hire more Government workers, which takes more money that they don’t have, instead of turning it over to a private contractor to produce a tax base to pay for what YUPPIES just got to have, then you have to consider the gas burned when they block off lanes to take care of them these center and shoulder gardens.

More U.S. billionaires pledge to give away wealth


people_32.gif (9824 bytes)Are YOU yes YOU are you Fed-Up

This is all and fine, but where do they send their money to? But we do know what the people at Micro Soft think about Americans, lay them off and bring in people from Foreign Countries to work there, now where do the rest send their money, gee why don’t they spend that money here to put people back to work here in this Country, then maybe it will spread all over the WORLD.

If every Country would work together and have equal trade not fair trade, I don’t think there would be all this squabbling around the world.

Until the rich stops being so greedy wanting Million Dollar wages, and big bonuses, then they would have profitable Companies and people would be working, and WHEN PEOPLE WORK PEOPLE BUY, but Businesses only care how much they can put in their own pockets, their logic is, don’t give it to the people who will buy the products made here.

WASHINGTON – Congressional opponents, stubborn diplomats or wary heads of state, beware: The new Oval Office sofas look so comfy, you just might be lulled into a few reckless compromises.

Every president eventually puts his own mark on the Oval Office, decoratively speaking, and the White House unveiled the Obama makeover on Tuesday, just hours before a major presidential speech on Iraq from his famous Resolute Desk (still there.) Continue reading

King Barack Demands More Taxes To Fund Queen Michelle’s Spain Trip

The rise and fall of the Foreign Country through the years has the United States following the same path, and if we follow this Administration we will fall to the same fate if we don’t do some thing about it.

We have seen a civilization so great, so long-lived, and so strong that it couldn’t die – do exactly that.

The concept of too big to fail does not necessarily apply to nation states.

We don’t have to go back very far in history to observe such a catastrophic event. It isn’t necessary to go back to the great pre-Christian civilization of Egypt to find parallels with our own current destructive patterns, nor do we need to compare our country to ancient Rome, and that greatest of civilization’s centuries’ long world reign and subsequent downfall. In much more recent times, we can look at what happened when our first and oldest ally, the ancient regime of the great nation of France, in the late 18th Century, self destructed in large part due to nation-destroying financial practices.
