NYC leaves Marathon generators in Central Park, residents lash out at Bloomberg. Hey, give Nanny a break, there’s nothing for him to do here – after all, if people have nothing to eat, then their salt and transfat consumption is ALREADY low. No need to monitor soda consumption when there’s no soda around…

I give Bloomie a break on this one. All that stuff belongs to the company putting on the race, not NYC. Seems they should have been contacted about donating it to NYC.

No, I don’t think so…Bloomie was the one who diverted the generators (intended for the people) to the marathon in the first place. He’s a soybean through and through.

soybeans are genetically modified…they already have a bad name.

Soybeans (as the exist in their natural form) are toxic to humans…just sayin’

You and all your scientifical\health knowledge, another fine Cargill product crossed off my shopping list. But please, please tell me I don’t have to give up my imported olive oil, I use it in everything. You should try my stuffed pasta shells (the ginormous ones) w/ Italian sausage, ‘shrooms, special cheese and assorted other magic secret recipe type things with a romaine&spinach salad with garden fresh cherry ‘matoes and homemade OLIVEOIL & vinegar (+the secret spices and other addons) faux Italian dressing.

Careful what you wish for, I love to cook, when there’s somebody else to enjoy it, the rest of the time I call it fuel; I had a crockpot BBQ’d bologna grilled pepperjack cheese sammich for breakfast while brewing your coffee this am.

You! re hospital food; have a great cheap one I think you may like (maybe the little monsters too), try to forward it through my bud, I know how some hate it when we use the boards as IMs. (they’re posting recipes now!?)

The one I had in mind there was one of the busy sched. ‘fuel’ cheaper things that isn’t half bad. But since I screwed up (maybe) and posted my Email addy earlier, drop me a line and I’ll send it out.

query re: ny hunger pains.

NY has plenty meat on the wing, and meat on the claw and meat on the paw sources, so why can’t they hunt for themselves, is it because they’ve been suckled at the govt. tit for so long they don’t know how, or are they just a buncha lazy crackwipes?

I have no pity for Bloomtard, he was fully intent on running the marathon for the $300+ million dollars, and didn’t back down until the public outcry got too much.

You are certainly right there! He was in it for the green all along, but like I said the other day, he see’s himself slipping in his popularity polls so he had to PR himself. It’s nothing more than damage control. I’m so cynical when it comes to the “rich and powerful” types like Bloomturd.

It’s a catch-22. They elect overreaching officials and decide to ignore orders then blame them…when adults didn’t think ahead to get even drinking water how do you pity them?

I see why the East Coast is so heavily democrat. There is a huge percentage of people that are completely incapable of taking care of their families or even themselves if the government is not instantly coming to their rescue in case of any problem. Any moron knows that the government is too big and too bureaucratic with too much self imposed red tape to handle the most minor calamity. The storm’s landfall was pretty accurately predicted days before yet these idiots were too inept to even fill a few jugs with water before the storm hit. I’m sure they thought nanny government would be instantly at their doorstep acting as servants for these entitled dipshits.

There’s a lot of truth in what you say. Right after the storm the NY Times proclaimed that Sandy “proved” a big govenment was necessary for dealing with the crisis. Those words have since proven hollow.

But the failure of the govenment has exposed the failure of the citizens to take necessary steps to protect themselves and their property.

I think Bloomberg’s crddibility and power has been badly damaged by “Superstorm Sandy”. The man who ordered New Yorkers not to smoke, not to eat transfats, not to drink Big Gulps and not to own guns has been esposed as an Il Duce wannnabe who isn’t competent in dealing with a real crisis.

Moreover, as an hysterical awarmist, who believes that the seas are rising dangerously—according to his gullible acceptance of the pseudo-scientific conjecture of AGW—because of “climate change”, he surely should have planned for flooding by, inter alia, (1) ensuring well-protected power cables (2) flood-proofing subways and (3) protecting low-level areas with barriers and dykes. That’s if he really believed the awarmist guff he spouts, of course.
He must have had ample time, once the storm was reported, to arrange stores of food and bottled water, blankets, generators, etc., but he should have expected a storm long ago because of the shrill predictions of increased hurricanes and heat-waves and suchlike by fat-cat Al Gore and crazy Bill McKibben.

i can’t imagine there being enough dykes in America, let alone NYC to be an effective barrier to flooding. even if they were BULL dykes. if there are that many in the alleys and gutters and spiritual wastelands then why is it so difficult for them to get fagomony passed?

willing to be enlightened.
