Obama did such a great job in responding to Hurricane Sandy, huh? Chris Christie, the so-called “Republican” who might have singlehandedly gotten Obama re-elected thinks so!
Let’s look at what’s happening now: Gas rationing. And “looting and thievery have become such serious threats that taking up arms and fleeing town are the best options for staying safe” in New York and New Jersey. As the weather starts to get bad again, FEMA has been shutting down its offices “due to weather.”
New York and New Jersey: two Blue States feeling blue.
Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee’s call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.
The National Rifle Association strongly opposes the arms treaty, and former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton explains: “Ostensibly, UNATT is about regulating government-to-government arms transfers or direct sales by manufacturers to foreign governments. But the hidden agenda of the gun controllers is to craft treaty language that, while seemingly innocuous, has long-range implications for the use and ownership of guns here in America. The real danger lies in vague, ambiguous stipulations gun-control advocates could later cite as requiring further domestic restraints. In other words, they hope to use restrictions on international gun sales to control gun sales at home.”
Many news stories are emerging about layoffs and firings occurring immediately after Obama won re-election: Among other news stories, one Las Vegas employer fired 22 employees because as a business “at the end of the day, I need to survive” and Boeing has now announced massive layoffs in its defense division.
