I keep clothes, thermal underwear, a sleeping bag, wool blanket, camping mess kit, candle lantern and a couple cans of sterno in mine.

RUSH: Folks, I want to take you back to last week. I want to go back to Detroit, Cobo Center, last week where some 65,000 people showed up to receive applications for stimulus money. About 3,500 people will actually be granted a portion of $15 million in stimulus money. There were scam artists outside Cobo Center selling fake applications for 20 bucks apiece. I was thinking about this all weekend and particularly after doing the Jamie Gangel interview on Thursday, first part of which today ran on the Today Show, part two will run tomorrow, and it's at RushLimbaugh.com if you missed it, both the video and the transcripts. But I got to thinking about this and I had a mixture of emotions in my commentary about this, you know, we had a little fun with it as we do with most everything Obama does, but this is really sad when you get right down to it that this is happening in the United States of America. Listen to these two bites. This is from our affiliate in Detroit, WJR.
ROGULSKI: Why are you here?
WOMAN #1: To get some money.
ROGULSKI: What kind of money?
WOMAN #1: Obama money.
ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?
WOMAN #1: Obama.
ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?
WOMAN #1: I don't know, his stash. I don't know. (laughter) I don't know where he got it from, but he givin' it to us, to help us.
WOMAN #2: And we love him.
WOMAN #1: We love him. That's why we voted for him!
WOMEN: (chanting) Obama! Obama! Obama! (laughing)
RUSH: All right, that was on Wednesday, I believe. Here is the bite that we had again from WJR Detroit on Tuesday.
ROGULSKI: Did you get an application to fill out yet?
WOMAN: I sure did. And I filled it out, and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.
ROGULSKI: Will you know today how much money you're getting?
WOMAN: No, I won't, but I'm waiting for a phone call.
ROGULSKI: Where's the money coming from?
WOMAN: I believe it's coming from the City of Detroit or the state.
ROGULSKI: Where did they get it from?
WOMAN: Some funds that was forgiven (sic) by Obama.
ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get the funds?
WOMAN: Obama getting the funds from... Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth. He's the president.
ROGULSKI: In downtown Detroit, Ken Rogulski, WJR News.

Anyway, Buffalobean has a good post up about the GOP in Buffalo and their pathetic lack of a candidate for mayor

If you can't have a "town hall meeting" without planting people to ask the questions don't have one at all. Have a televised address where you just read through your talking points and don't take questions. Or at a minimum get plants that aren't so connected to the democrat political machine that it only takes a matter of hours to uncover.

oh well. maybe I'll follow up with them about it but I'm not that concerned. I started on this site so I'll come back to it
It doesn't really surprise me. I gave up listening to Bauerle years ago, even before I started working 9-6 and couldn't listen to him. Even years ago his show was getting ridiculous. Between his constant "kids say the darndest things" shows that require no thought on his part and that tin foil hat wearing guy from Erie who claimed to have sorts of high level cia contacts I just had to give up.

Once again the responsible are having to pay for the failures of the irresponsible in America. This new pork, I mean "stimulus" bill, has all sorts of increases for those that don't work. Mean while we get the laughable comment from Obama that gov't needs to stop spending what it doesn't have. Um didn't you just push Congress to pass the largest single spending bill in history?
I say fuck the banks that were dumb enough to lend to people without doing proper income checks. Fuck the people dumb enough to not know the terms of their mortgage payments. And fuck the gov't stooges that pressured banks into doing irresponsible lending.
I made sure I got a fixed rate and that I could afford it. Where's my huge bailout? Oh that's right, I was responsible so I get the reward of having to pay shit loads of taxes.
Meanwhile if you hang out at a grocery store long enough, or ask some of the employees, you'll see people buying high priced steak and lobster with their food stamps then having a case of beer and carton of cigarettes rung up separately that they pay for using cash. And don't tell me it's an urban legend, I saw it weekly when I worked at Tops for two years. Was it every food stamp user? No, but the fact that food stamps can be used for what I consider luxury food is obscene. At least wics has limits.
A couple years ago we learned NY pays more for medicaid than CA and TX combined. To top it off there were reports of medicaid being used for Viagara and other non life saving drugs. Again I have to ask WTF is wrong with this state?I have no problem with gov't programs to help the truly disabled. But the able bodied recipients need to be forced to work for that money. Cleaning up parks and shoveling sidewalks sounds like a good start.

"After a four-day trial, the Illinois Senate voted 59-0 to convict him of abuse of power, automatically ousting the second-term Democrat. In a second, identical vote, lawmakers further barred Blagojevich from ever holding public office in the state again."
Good riddance to yet another corrupt politician. Hopefully he'll be getting jail time too.

Patterson did the right thing in not anointing yet another Kennedy into office. Gillibrand is not a career politcian (at least not yet) but she was elected into an office, unlike Kennedy who has never been elected to public office.
She also represents a rural, or at least somewhat rural, area of NY. It's about time NY has representation from somewhere other than NYC. Hopefully she'll remember that while serving as senator.

If we're talking infrastructure (or any other gov't job/contract for that matter) it should go to the best qualified company that has a proven record or high quality work at a competitive price. Race should have nothing to do with it. Promoting based on race is just as wrong as demoting based on race.

I'm a pretty easy going guy, but this is the second time this guy has done this and it's pissing me off.

Considering that 20 minutes of a 60 minute show are commercials why do we have to pay anything more than a basic fee for maintaining the lines? Rates keep going up and so do the amount of commercials. I thought commercials were supposed to pay for programming?

These "authorities" need to go. They just raised tolls not too long ago and here they go again. I say abolish the thruway authority and roll those roads into the state DOT's responsibility, eliminate the overlap in management and any overlap in road workers can be phased out by not replacing those that quit and retire.

I've lived in Western NY my whole life and the Buffalo area for about 9 years. Lately the politicians and governments in this state have gotten to the point I feel the need to be able to rant about their complete idiocy, but this site won't just be political based nor will it only be rants.
Comments are definitely welcome on all posts. Just be civil to myself and others.
