  1. A few shots I took at the Tweedy solo show at Newport last week... http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-8EgMTO7V3Tg/U9vf1m2X1WI/AAAAAAAAnUc/kUeEtfBUXG0/s400/518b.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-rK8jmYx-SIA/U9vgAXURuKI/AAAAAAAAnUk/woRpnFEXQKw/s400/519b.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-lGQhtzxoMvk/U9vgYUXWLmI/AAAAAAAAnU0/xIUsiZ69h5I/s400/523a.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ekHxr5hIxxo/U9vgi9lUHoI/AAAAAAAAnU8/q92X1RW0tVM/s400/529b.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-886ALZib1K4/U9vgsdH9ugI/AAAAAAAAnVE/50mFaMGlBFI/s400/536b.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-3BuijxU6_ho/U9vhDEkozZI/AAAAAAAAnVU/8aF6B9KSDfw/s400/54
  2. Just got power back at 4:30 this afternoon. Outside of a few minutes of computer time at school, which was closed but had power, no internet, phone or TV since Monday evening. Luckily, I could get all the ice I needed from the ice machine in the school cafe. Parts of town were devastated near the coast here in Milford, CT. Went out Monday night to watch the high tide roll in down on Melba Street which is a low lying area along the beach which always gets destroyed in these storms. The water reached the bottom of the street signs and washed the beach side walls of many homes away. One of my fri
  3. Here's a few shots of where I walk every day taken about 1 PM...
  4. Went out for my walk around 6:30 this morning. Wind was a steady 20 mph in your face when you walked directly East. The waves were pretty regular for a normal high tide but it should have been low tide at that time. Some white caps but not anything dangerous. Walked along the sea-wall and didn't get splashed. I had to journey out on I-95 about an hour ago. Some gusts that moved the car a bit but nothing different than one usually encounters on a blustery day.The winds have picked up a bit in the last half-hour. My son who travels all day in his car is still out on the road. I checked in with h
  5. High tide is at 11:30 tomorrow morning here on Long Island Sound in Southern CT. I'll probably go for my daily walk down to the beach if it's not raining too hard yet to watch the waves crash on to the beach. If it's too rainy a drive in the car is always an adventure during these storms. Last year for Irene most of the locals who didn't actually have a house right on the water strolled around on the roads leading to the beach to see the raging surf. Pretty awesome actually. Unfortunately several friends of mine have just rebuilt their homes from that last storm and are preparing for the worst
  6. I thought it was pretty funny. Must not appeal to that Mid-West sense of humor. Things looked pretty slow here so I figured this one might get the juices flowing. Oh, well...back to preparing for the storm of the century. Lou, you'll like these... Mitt's storm tips http://www.economicpolicyjournal.com/2012/10/mitts-storm-tips.html

  8. Man, I'm flattered by all the attention my views get from you guys. You sure waste a lot of your time replying to my posts. My thoughts get more analysis here than anything Romney or Obama have to say. I would have stopped back on page two or three of this thread if I were you. It's pretty funny actually. I kind of enjoy reading what you all come up with next. What snide remarks can we make today about the guy who doesn't agree with the leaders and policies that have gotten us into this mess. At least I put some ideas on the table so you could bat them around. Someone else would have given up
  9. You can beleive what you wish. I find liberals an interesting group. They like to act as if there is no such thing as a Constitution that establishes a Federal System that places limits on the powers of the federal government and grants the rest to the states. So be it. Your Great Depression story is just that, a story. Much more complicated than that. But I'm not going to argue with you about it. If that's what you believe, fine. What exactly do you all believe? You sure have a fine time diagnosing my philosophy. Let's hear your solutions if you have any.
  10. Those are issues that are not the business of the federal government. Marriage laws are the left up to the states according to the Constitution as are murder laws. It is a waste of time to discuss them every presidential election cycle. As a libertarian and a constitutionalist I believe people should be free to do what they want in their personal life as long as you don't harm or threaten another person's life or destroy their property. You could interpret that to mean decriminalizing victimless crimes as well. 10th Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constituti
