In light of the recent storm disaster on the east coast, some of the after effects being unnecessary, what are the odds they will happen again? A: 100%
The unnecessary effects are the power outages, now going on 8 days in some areas. So with the poer outages we have no a/c with 100 degree heat and deaths from heat stroke. We have no refridgerated food, no freezers, food spoilage or poisoning since they also can't cook it
We have our powerlines buried, like Germany does. Germany had 21 minutes of power outage last year.
That's a little more than I can take.
I just got this news!
"An attorney for the family of Kenneth Chamberlain Sr., a Marine veteran slain in his home by White Plains, N.Y., police said that in some ways this case is worse than the killing of Trayvon Martin.

The Republicans’ plan to destroy the Obama presidency – hatched on inauguration day 2009 – is working. New jobs numbers are out – showing the economy only added a dismal 80,000 jobs in June, which wasn’t enough to move the unemployment rate down from 8.2%.

If voter I.d. Laws disinfranchise minorities, do gun control laws disinfranchise minorities from their 2nd amendment rights by requiring I.D. in the purchase of a fire arm?
The state recently passed legislation forcing political organizations like SuperPACs and so-called advocacy groups to reveal their donors if they run ads within sixty days of an election.
The law will apply to several organizations like the Chamber of Commerce, as well as Karl Rove and the Koch brother’s political organizations, which are planning to spend a billion dollars nationwide. And it might deter these deep-pocketed oligarchs from spending money in the state if they don’t want their names revealed.
Despite numerous reports suggesting that voter fraud is a non-issue and there’s absolutely no evidence of non-citizens trying to vote, several red states are pushing ahead with new laws to grant voting right to only those people who have photo IDs. And a new Mother Jones report shines a light on what exactly that means.
