Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Drudge: DC To Be Dark For Days

DC was dark the moment Mr Obama took office. And I make no reference to the intrinsic nature of melanin, either. I make reference to the shaded and freedom-robbing stance of his policies down to the uncaring, arrogant, naive, inexperienced and darker nature of his very soul.

Mr Drudge merely aggregates the obvious, in my opinion.

That said, The Washington Post writes:

With much of Montgomery County still without power and ongoing 911 problems continuing across Northern Virginia on Sunday afternoon, local officials vowed to press utilities to restore service more quickly.

“I will not accept the timetable of July the 6th, said Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett (D), shortly after Pepco announced some homes would not have their power restored until Friday or even later. “Having our citizens go seven days without utilities in my opinion is not the kind of service we should expect.”

Maryland declared liberal leave for all non-essential state employees. But all federal agencies are set to open Monday, though officials said workers could take unscheduled leave or telework.

District government, however, is expected to be open on Monday, officials said. Dozens of city traffic signals remain without power. But Paul Quander, the District’s deputy mayor for public safety and justice, said traffic control officers will be in place at anticipated trouble spots for the Monday morning commute.

At 7 p.m., about 608,000 Washington-area businesses and households — one in three of the region’s electric customers — remained out of service, according to data furnished on utility websites.

Cell phone service crashed in DC. Electric lines were down.

Some train passengers were stranded for 2o hours.

You can anticipate, however, that the American Taxpayer will be stranded and then systematically cut down in the next four years if Mr Obama takes November and, with upcoming SCOTUS appointments, the entire nation will be stranded, cast adrift -- only to capsize in the next 20 years or -- much less time.


All the while -- thank God, thank Jesus! [or should I say: thank Obama, thank Holder! (same thing, just ask them)] -- White House salaries continue to bloat and swell.

And even better news: [Hooray! Hooray!]:

Wall Street Journal Chief Economist Stephen Moore says 75% of the ObakaKare bill will fall on those making $120,000 or LESS.

So: thanks, Mr Obama! Thanks for sticking it -- once again -- to the Average American Taxpayer! You sure taught those Fat Cat Politicians a thing or two:

Yeah, blowhard, that will speed up repairs.

WSF: right, because he apparently has so much clout with the power company.

NFO: I'd rather see them up cranes repairing lines to DC.

Because we know they'd screw up and no one could call in or out.

THAT would be called a victory.

I'm in the D.C. area. Parts of this area look like war zones!

And this heat! Bad, bad, bad.

What the media are ignoring in all these reports: the canopy that the environmentalists INSISTED upon. Tree trimming here ofter requires a permit, and those trees on government properties are out of control. Disasters waiting to happen! Here in Virginia, at least where I live in Virginia, the power companies trim the trees close to the lines. I'm not sure that Pepco is allowed to do so in Maryland and D.C.

Last year, several of my neighbors and I said, "To hell with the county ordinance. We're at least cutting back our own trees."

As a result, our street was one of the first to regain power. And no chain saws were needed.

Here's one for you....Some folks in affected areas now have generators. Well, those without generators are bitching about the noise. For God's sake! This is an emergency!
