Nice politishiating a headline. Durricane Sandy decimated and took control of subby's 40 grit vagina.

"We're watching it and we'll be prepared," Con Ed spokesman Chris Olert told FoxNews.com. "We'll have extra crews available and, if need be, we'll go to 12-hour shifts."


Why no hero tag?

I can't make any sense out of that headline, so here's some pancake bunnies.

FNC is horrible enough, subby. There's no need to lie about them.

The Fail tag is for Subby for his bald faced lie.

Name one time, just one time, that a disaster victim has EVER created a job! Huh? Huh? Got ya there don't I, libtards?

If you think this hurricane is bad, just wait until you see the death panels!

They scam FEMA money and spend it on booze and LCD TVs. So it does help the economy.

FTA: It may combine with other, rain-heavy weather systems to create what meteorologists are calling a "perfect storm"

Well that is 3 minutes of my life I can't get back because most headlines actually have some truth to them in the story. In this case subby should get epic fail tag.

I thought it was b.s. but this does have at least the opportunity to be on the scale of 1991 (which was also a Halloween storm).

Just go look at the national radar and check out the front that is moving in from the west. That and the hurricane should meet in NY.

And it will be a full moon so the tide will be as swollen as the average farkers mother on a Saturday night.

What's a billion dollars, anyway? Every four or five days in Afghanistan/Iraq for more than the last ten years?
 
2012-10-26 06:22:09 AM
All of this will be blamed on Obama's weather machine to disenfranchise rich white dudes.

Actually that's incorrect. If you wanted to monitor for my mom, you'd be wanting to watch a tidal gauge.

The Republicans are still hoping for "Obama's Katrina" to happen. This is their last shot before voting day.
 
2012-10-26 06:38:49 AM
Fox News is reporting things from Weather Underground now?
Wow!
They ARE fair and balanced!
 
2012-10-26 06:38:56 AM
Well the "Fail" tag is certainly appropriate. Here's looking at you, subby.

Didn't another hurricane just hit N.O. last month? As I recall, they survived it just fine, thanks to the fact that the President is half-black, and there were no political points to be scored by playing the race-card.

I thought it was thanks to the fact that they actually, yanno, bothered to spend money to fix the levy this time around- being about the only thing that keeps them dry below sea level.

Half-black presidents are, after all, pretty awesome, but they can't quite match a well-built levy for sheer sea-stopping power.

FTA: 'Jeff Masters, a meteorologist for Weather Underground, called the hurricane a "perfect storm," and predicted early next week that it could cause $1 billion or more in damage.'

By Joshua Rhett Miller Published October 25, 2012 FoxNews.com


Great job. We have meteorologists predicting billions of dollars of damage instead of predicting weather.

Pretty sure Fox's Economists are about as qualified as their meteorologists, honestly.

A billion dollars! That's what 0Bongo spent on a single day of vacation at Sea Isle City when he made the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln sail on the Jersey Turnpike to bring Moosehell her waterproof beach Quran!

I was actually thinking the opposite. After the storm is over, and all the aid comes flowing in, all the Democrats have to do is start putting out ads pointing out what would happen to that aid in a Romney administration. Another possibility: ads that point out that if you needed any of that aid you are now part of Romney's "47 %".

I just see more ways for Obama to spin this in his favor that Romney.

Just going to prove that the mods don't read the articles they approve: There is nothing about any war in that article, right? Where did Fox News make this math that subby speaks of?

Honestly? You don't get it?

Submitter was making a connection between this story and some BS Fox News pushed in the past. The headline sentence could have been better constructed, granted, but nobody's claiming that the story referenced the Iraq War.

You don't have to be in the "47%" to need aid following a storm. Funny thing about hurricanes - you at least temporarily lose your job and quite often your belongings.

I can't tell you how many teabaggers I know who suddenly love "big government" once a storm hits. It's OK to receive benefits in that scenario, but not OK when you come down with a serious illness, get laid off due to a bad economy, or any other common situation. There's something about a storm that makes everyone line up at the trough, and two months later those same teabaggers will say, "I never asked the gubmit for nothin'! Why should MY tax dollars go to food stamps!"

Are you sure nobody is? The wording of the headline makes it pretty clear that subby believes that Fox News is the "they" that is making that math claim in this particular article otherwise there would be no connection, no claim made, and this would be a headline not related to anything in particular.

Too complicated an explanation. The correct maxim is:

'Big government' is fine when it benefits me.

Corollary:

'Big government' is not fine when it benefits people other than me.


Related mantras?

Spending money on poor people is 'entitlement'.

Tax breaks for rich people is what they are entitled to as 'job creators'.

What overly-bloated defense budget? Poor people have refrigerators!

I think it's time we all went down to the Dept. of Pulling Numbers Out Of Our Ass® down D.C. way with some pitchforks and said "Show me your f*cking receipts!". Seriously. When you send somebody who is 16,000,000,000,000,000.00 in debt to the store for some gaff tape and lumber, sure, that's a bad idea, but CHECK THE RECEIPTS.
