New Jersey allowing e-mail ballots

by Josh K / November 6, 2012 1:27 AM PST

They're allowing people in areas affected by Sandy to cast ballots by e-mail and fax. Not sure exactly how that works, but I have it on good authority that Fake Viagra is currently leading by six points and if those numbers don't change after four hours, that New Jersey has to call its doctor immediately.

Funny....but not so funny are stories I'm hearing
by Steven Haninger / November 6, 2012 3:08 AM PST

about emergency personnel who have gone to help out and now have no way to vote. Their sacrifice to help after the hurricane means that many will forfeit that opportunity as well. There should be a way these situations can be addressed as well as for all the virtual "overseas" NJ voters.

Lots of people in New York may have trouble as well, and New York may extend the voting deadline past tonight if they feel there has been a significant impact on people's ability to vote.

And we have another storm coming tomorrow, a nor'easter. Just what the cold and homeless need, not to mention the cleanup/rescue crews.

Say Josh, now that Obama got his quick photo op with the storm and the campaigning is over, he seems to have time to play basketball. If he can now spare time for that, shouldn't he be able to spare time for the people in the storm area who are in a bad shape? A lot of people lack food, water, heat and shelter. Why can't he get off the basketball court and or his rear end and help those people? Forget FEMA, why does he not personally order the necessary things to be immediately sent to where it is needed. As the saying goes. "When in command - Command!" I think he needs to go to his desk and start directing relief to where it is needed.

What about all the people with no food or a place to warm up a can of beans?

Romney took care of that

I like beans

He's already done that, J

He issued a series of orders, one of which was that every single phone call or e-mail was to get a response within 15 minutes of receipt. No excuses.

The things you're expecting him to do -- most of them can and should be delegated, and I'm assuming you had the same expectations of President Bush after Katrina?

How about...
by J. Vega / November 6, 2012 6:11 AM PST

How about directly calling the ranking powers in the army, and have them fly in bottled water and MREs to Kennedy. Then have it taken to areas in need? You know Josh- Ask how many MREs are in hand and bottles of water, and issue a direct order that "X" amount of them be immediately sent. He's the one in the Oval Office and the power to use directly.

Remember...
by J. Vega / November 6, 2012 6:23 AM PST

Remember Katrina and General Honore, AKA "The Ragin' Cajun"? Does Obama? I think it's time for direct action, not just a promise to "get back to" anybody who has a problem. People need the basic necessities of life in the damaged areas.

Let's copy/paste something
by Steven Haninger / November 6, 2012 6:14 AM PST

from your link.

"The president's motorcade made a 10 minute drive to Attack Athletics..." (underline mine)

Attack Athletes?

Would this be to recruit a new auxiliary military force to replace the Navy Seals?

Let me help you

23 years later and a lot has happened. Out of a state-of-the-art facility in Chicago, Attack Athletics now trains both professional athletes looking to make a name for themselves and business professionals looking for personal improvement.

Our 65,000 sq. ft. facility boasts 4 NBA sized basketball courts, seating for 1,000, a 10,000 sq. ft. weight room, and 4 locker rooms.

That's terrible

It looks like that storm can affect those already hit the hardest by Sandy even more than those who lucked out. Isabel almost came overhead but skipped behind the mountains and did us personally more damage than Sandy, which came closer with it's eye. A friend near the Maryland-Penn border north of Baltimore had it come right overhead, but he lucked out too on escaping unscathed other than usual branches down. They are going to need to move some of those people out of the area to find them enough lodging aren't they?
