    Other parts of the country were also sweltering. Denver recorded the hottest June on record. The average temperature for the month was 75 degrees, which was 7.6 degrees above normal. There were 17 days in which the maximum temperature exceeded 90 degrees, including a stretch of five consecutive 100-degree days from June 22-26, the weather service said.

    In the Midwest, severe thunderstorms packing 80-plus mph winds pummeled the Chicago area on Sunday. There were no immediate reports of homes damaged but ComEd utility officials said about 200,000 customers were left without power. More than 60 kayakers were rescued from the Chicago River after their kayaks flipped when the storm blew in, a fire department official told the Chicago Sun-Times.

    In Washington's northern Virginia suburbs, emergency 911 call centers were out of service; residents were told to call local police and fire departments. Huge trees toppled across streets in the nation's capital, crumpling cars

    Storm power outages could last days

    When I think of Republicans like Eric Cantor questioning the merits of disaster relief or Mitt Romney saying we need LESS Police and Firefighters, I think if Americans keep electing these idiots into office, then who exactly are the idiots? Not me, I would never vote for them or their "ilk".

    Would you provide me with the link where Romney said we needed fewer firefighters and police? I must have missed that.

    The Heat Index was 105 the other day here. But my wife and I were ok because we're not Morbidly Obese like most Americans. Here I am at Gettysburg earlier today where we walked for hours in the humid 93 degree heat. You see me sweating?

    Once you prove your point it is time to move on but RDean keeps proving over and over and over and over than he is indeed a hack. Obama got his photo op next issue please.

    How come no one on this site knows how to use "Google" or search "Youtube"?

    You know years ago, men would go to parks in suits and ties, the women in dresses and they wouldn't burn up NEARLY as bad as Americans do now.

    "Oh but it's so much hotter now!"

    No it isn't, It's just that you're so much fatter now and your body overheats much quicker.

    Also, concealed carry allows me not to depend on Police for protection wherever I go. Concealed Carry for everyone means less crime.

    Now, people like rdean might end up just shooting themselves but that's another story.

    A "hack" is someone who lies. Why should I lie when Republicans provide so much material? I couldn't think up half of their zany beliefs. "Let him die"? Wouldn't occur to me in a million years.
