I delete spam pingbacks so don’t even think about it. Actually you can’t as I turned pingbacks off. Tired of deleting them. Don’t know who pings to everything I post–at least twice but they don’t even get the name of this blog or my blog right. which would be the only thing saving them–but I don’t like blogs that are made just to ping articles and then sell products that would land in any persons spam
Cooper has great Obama posters.
Here is Frank Rich. on the “Kennedy myth.”
Here is Nicholas Kristof on “Christian evangelicals.” I don’t think that Kristof understands that many liberals talk about the radical right–no religious denomination–for a reason. We are intelligent people who can separate the good from the bad.
I care about the zealots losing power and believe that they have.
It does upset me that so many minority group members in New York are planning on vote for Hillary. Fact: Downstate New York has long supported Upstate. Any good she has done for Upstate has been mitigated for what she hasn’t done for Downstate.
She’s a carpetbagger (I was never in love with Robert Kennedy) who has had one aim and one aim only since she began to run for president, uh that was a typo I will live in–since she began to run for Senator.
Nobody can tell me what she’s done for the city as she’s done nothing of consequence. She voted to give the president power to declare war when too much time had elapsed since 9/11. I do love Teddy Kennedy as he (Frank Rich points out) he voted against it.
That both Clintons are capable of fistfighting is beyond doubt, at least on their own behalf in a campaign. But Mrs. Clinton isnâ€™t always a fistfighter when governing. Thereâ€™s a reason why Robert Kennedyâ€™s children buried the Iraq war in a single clause (and never used the word Iraq) deep in their endorsement. They know that their uncle Teddy, unlike Mrs. Clinton, raised his fists to lead the Senate fight against the Iraq misadventure at the start. They know too that less than six months after â€œMission Accomplished,â€ Senator Kennedy called the war â€œa fraudâ€ and voted against pouring more money into it. Senator Clinton raised a hand, not a fist, to vote aye.
New Yorkers should make a statement on Tuesday by voting for Barack Obama. We will never know what should have, could have, would have happened had the Senators from New York been the true leaders they should have been–and Hillary claims leadership
We are a country in dire need of great leadership. Hillary has proven time and again that she can’t lead the way New York need(ed) leaders. Our “dramatic recovery” from 9/11 was done by Bloomberg moving monies around. New Yorkers will be paying for this the rest of their lives. We have been for the past six years some months.
While Manhattan might not have been hit by the subprime mess as much as the rest of the country, there are four more boroughs that have been directly hit. Manhattanites pay for everything in our daily costs.
I’m making the most dramatic statement I can. I’m moving. My apartment should be on the market shortly–and I’m too upset to talk about the truly stupid things that have gone wrong the past few weeks. A lot of this directly has to do with the cost of living in New York–and people wanting more, more, and more. There’s much more and maybe I will talk about it but I reached my “nicest person in New York” limit–and basically wasted Saturday sleeping as I was too upset to do anything productive.
I’m not a bank, brokerage or mortgage company. People seem to confuse me with one of the three. The problems I have don’t affect my intelligence or usually my judgment. They do affect how I look at my little world aka my apartment. I only see the bad–and in an apartment filled with supplies that hasn’t been worked on for a month, I see myself being used and mocked. Now that6 I understand exactly what’s wrong, I can make my townhouse work for me.
This apartment worked for me in many ways before the monthly costs went up 70% since 9/11. If I seem embittered by 9/11 and not all warm and fuzzy about it I don’t plan on paying the costs again and again. Has Hillary done anything to make Manhattan more affordable? The subprime mess would be a blessing for her but for certain things mentioned in Rich’s article.
There is nothing fun about living in a Island where costs, and costs not easily quantified, are spiraling out of control. If I repeat that theme too often it’s one that has affected my life more than I can say or wish to say.
I do wish I had the ability to be more like Hillary–totally centered on the prize with no feelings for the people around me–or in her case her constituents.
Think about it–she stayed away from New York City and our problems so that she could appeal to the general population. She didn’t deviate from her game plan after 9/11 and that shows me somebody who is rigid and one-sighted.
Bill might have gotten an office on 125th Street but he’s not going to be the president.
I have always been a Billary scandal defender. That doesn’t mean i want people with so much baggage in The White House. One more quote from Rich’s article
What we also know is that, unlike Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Obama is not hesitant to take on John McCain. He has twice triggered the McCain temper, in spats over ethics reform in 2006 and Mr. McCainâ€™s Baghdad market photo-op last year. In Thursdayâ€™s debate, Mr. Obama led an attack on Mr. McCain twice before Mrs. Clinton followed with a wan echo. When Bill Clinton promised that his wife and Mr. McCainâ€™s friendship would ensure a â€œcivilizedâ€ campaign, he may have been revealing more than he intended about the perils for Democrats in that matchup.
