    Hmmm.. Maybe someone told Obama that we didn't vote for him here. Actually, I think we'll do much better if the federal government just leaves us alone.

    Really? Are you going to tell your governor not to apply for federal aid and declare the cities that were hit disaster areas?

    David.. I have no problem telling our governor not to apply for federal aid. He is, hovever, a democrat so you can be sure that he'll ask anyway. I don't know how they do things in New York but the folks around here aren't sitting on a bridge waiting for the federal government to come tell them where to squat and lean. When EMS put out a call for help yesterday, thousands of people showed up. The people here help themselves and they help their neighbors. The only thing the federal government could do right now is to slow the cleanup effort down.

    Article w/ video of our democrat governor assuring that he'll ask for money :)
