Update: two links: this on the story, this saying some of it isn't correct.
Effing Bloomberg has G-d-knows how many people without power, etc., but he's insisting on diverting resources to run the effing marathon; and that's with effing NY insisting the federal government(i.e., WE) pay for ALL recovery costs...
More wonders of the Brit NHS, that Obama & Co. want to copy over here:
Almost two thirds of NHS trusts using the Liverpool Care Pathway have received payouts totalling millions of pounds for hitting targets related to its use, research for The Daily Telegraph shows.
And what are those targets? Killing old people.
At many hospitals more than 50 per cent of all patients who died had been placed on the pathway and in one case the proportion of forseeable deaths on the pathway was almost nine out of 10.
From the Dutchman:
We hear you, collectivist butthead, we just no longer pay attention to you, or believe the statist pap you deal out. Where were you on Fast and Furious? Where are you on Benghazi?
A fragmented nation and a fragmented audience for news is making the country more difficult to govern, PBS News Hour co-anchor Jeffrey Brown said during a weekend talk at Western Washington University.A generation ago, before cable news channels and internet news sources, most people got their news from the same small collection of sources: three major TV networks and a hometown newspaper or two, Brown said. People gathered around their televisions for the assassination of a president, a walk on the moon, and other major events."It was an age of mass media news, one audience sharing a common experience," Brown said. "For the most part, the mass audience experienced such things together."Brown, featured speaker for the university's Fall Family Open House Saturday, Oct. 27, contrasted that world with the one we live in today, in which Americans can restrict themselves to cable news stations and internet news sources they find most congenial."For the most part, we now live in the world of niches," Brown said.He acknowledged that the availability of more choices was a good thing, but also noted that the change seems to be part of a far more divided and bitter political atmosphere."If we only connect with like-minded people, how do we hear other views?" Brown asked. "It's hard not to feel it has some relationship to the divisions around us."
Benghazi, American Honor, Little Caesar, and the False Dmitri
Gee, you'd almost think somebody didn't WANT the site in Benghazi secured and properly searched by the feebs...
Added: Napolitano doesn't want the crisis to go to waste.
Personally, I think this makes Pelosi flatly on the side of the enemy.
