Up for Debate: Sandy looms

Monday, October 29, 2012 at 12:34am

Following dozens of deaths in the Caribbean, Hurricane Sandy's expected landfall in the Northeast has already severely impacted the region with mass closures and transit service stoppages. How destructive do you think the overall impact will be to residents, infrastructure, the economy, etc.?

p3 makes as much sense as a troll in heat out of season. No where to go, but back under a bridge.

I spoke too soon with my last post. Not more than five away I was rained on, it snowed. The mountain top was crown with snow or maybe a layer of ice from a fog bank. I could not tell while driving and the lighting was not all that.

Snowed? Yikes!

Loner stay safe and warm. Back on the way home now.

It was a thousand feet higher Blanket. I'm in Crossville now and the temp is 47.

"This hurricane is all George Bush's fault.... and if it's not his fault it's Obama's fault."

Didn't you hear? It's all Clinton's fault.

Both Bill and Hillary.

It's 4:20 here....enjoying a glass of New York state red wine: Blaufrankisch...from Red Tail Ridge Vineyards ...hanging around the shanty...putting a good buzz on...so far, the winds are not bad...it's raining, but not pouring....my old hound dog is snoring.

Sounds lovely, Loner. :)

Hello all.
I ended up moving to San Jose', California.
Cannot believe my Tigers played so lousey and got swept in 4 games.
But, as a refugee, the Bay area is my new home so my new team, SF Giants won.
New Jersey will become a Katrina.
But, Obama will pull out all stops and release FEMA to help
His response will ensure a 2nd term.

It could be worse, Bn...it could get worse....I have not checked the local radar...maybe I should.

By: yogiman on 10/29/12 at 3:24

Barry's never had a fault, BigPapa, so why try blaming him now? The fight's almost over.

By: Loner on 10/29/12 at 3:26

DARGE!!

Good to hear from you....I may come to visit...have you checked out the medical Cannabis? I need my scrip re-filled.

By: govskeptic on 10/29/12 at 3:30

Hello Darge, but ye ole triplex is dust by now. Calif, eh? Couldn't stand
anymore of Southern Living, fine fried chicken, and southern drawls
spewing the good word? Good luck out there in Steinbeck country.

By: Loner on 10/29/12 at 3:31

This Twain quote seemed appropriate under todays circumstances....

"The blunting effects of slavery upon the slaveholder's moral perceptions are known and conceded the world over; and a privileged class, an aristocracy, is but a band of slaveholders under another name."

By: Loner on 10/29/12 at 3:42

Aye, Brrrk....there's mendacity and there's BS...'tis there, where the twain shall ever meet.

By: Loner on 10/29/12 at 4:07

With Darge in San Jose, CA and the lone one in Western NY...and you(s) guys in Nashville TN...we got the nation covered...we are Nationwide....from the North Coast of New York state..to the Pacific Coast in Southern California....to the banks of the Cumberland River in Tennessee...we are bad....bad...bad...and we're nationwide.

D7 - Good to hear from you & that you are in a good place. Stay in touch!

By: Loner on 10/29/12 at 4:20

Happy 4:20, Nashville, Tennessee!

By: Loner on 10/29/12 at 4:26

It will be 4:20 in San Jose, CA when it's 6:20 in Nashville and 7:20 here.....according to my calculations....I'll have to update the program on my crystalline spheres of clairvoyance...they are very sensitive to the 4:20 effect.

By: Captain Nemo on 10/29/12 at 5:41

It is good to hear from d7.

btw I made it home.

And Romney wanted to do away with Fema, but I think that he has flip-flopped again on this topic. He goes with the wind in every direction..

By: BigPapa on 10/30/12 at 2:34

why did obama make that hurricane hit NYC? Why didnt he stop it!!

By: budlight on 10/30/12 at 7:49

Here is what's wrong with our country: I heard an ad or news story about a seminar or something to address teachers having sex with kids. During the ad, a voice over said in the background "nobody can keep secrets". What the hell does that mean? Nobody should keep secrets is what the ad should have said.

I wish I could remember which station I heard it on. I think it was the station with Dave Ramsey, etc.

And he could do away with it if the States would build up their emergency funds and not use them for FREE CELL phones. Free phones should be land lines like they used to be - for home bound folks not for roamers doing drug deals

Obama directed people in new york to look up infor for help on the Internet? Is he nuts? They have no power!
