I've been on disability most of my life. I've been helped from money from an apartment

complex my family owns, (well my mother owns now) in New Jersey. It's only 10 units but it has provided her income and has helped me too.

I just found out it was completely flooded and my mother did not have flood insurance on it.

I am so upset/mad/angry/pissed/you name it.

Because of my illness my mother has always treated me as if I were not "as knowing" as she. And even though years ago I lived there and took care of it, (the apartment building) before I moved to Florida she insists now that she is the only one that can do anything for it. I cannot say anything to her now as I know she feels really bad.

I just called my brother who lived in PA and asked him to help and told him, (which I believe to be true as my mother is now 80) that she is not as "with it" as she used to be or thinks she is, and would he please help her. I told him the situation of the insurance.

Does anyone know if FEMA helps in a situation such as this? I guess it couldn't hurt to ask them.

Very interesting post over at Newsworks by a man named Martin Jones about the black vote

# The Black Vote will exceed expectations — Martin Jones 2012-10-29 15:38
As was the case with the abolition of slavery, the end of Jim Crow segregation, the Major League Baseball debut of Jackie Robinson and the establishment of the Martin Luther King,Jr. national holiday, the African-American community broadly regards the presidency of Barack Obama to be an historic benchmark of racial progress that must not ever be reversed. Only the re-election of Barack Obama would prevent that reversal, as a defeat for the president would amount to a national repudiation of his historic 2008 victory. Those who voted for him in 2008 thus know that a second victory in 2012 is still required in order to both validate and consummate his first White House victory. Black voter turnout can therefore be expected to reach as high as 90 percent with Obama receiving well over 95 percent of those voting (in particular due to Mitt Romney's controversial "47 percent" remarks at a private all-white fundraiser).


Mitt Romney took a $10 Million Federal bailout for Bain and never paid it back AND pocketed $4 Mill!

Edit: I know it sound weird 2008 but that is what the video says and that is what the guys profile says his last activity was.


Romney campaign calls police on Sensata workers trying to deliver a letter.

All they wanted to do is deliver a letter in hopes of getting Romney to talk to them.

I'm afraid Rove and one of his ilk are going to try and screw with the unemployment

numbers this month. I know they are protected but just look at everything they are doing. It is amazing the voter suppression that is going on. The lying. The cheating. I would not put it past them to try and get in there and fudge the numbers, or just fudge the numbers of a few states! A few states with some radical right winged governors.

If the unemployment numbers go up in a few days when they come out I will be highly suspicious.

There's a wonderful thread with our President. Here's Romney with babies. Pic heavy

with some babies.

Look at this graph from Huffington post pollster on the House race


I can't post it here because it is interactive. But anyway the Democrats have an edge up on the Republicans. Does that mean they will take the House or that people just prefer Democrats to Republicans?

It came from a link here: http://election.princeton.edu/faq/

OMG Joe Scarborough is telling people Obama is going to lose because he has gotten

below 50% in some national polls!

He is trying to get people to NOT VOTE! Don't believe that lying sack of crap!


Wouldn't it be kind of poetic if Romney won 47% of the vote in this election?

Just saying.

If you contribute tonight to the DCCC your contribution will be tripled!!!


From Nancy Pelosi who should be Speak again!

This is so inspiring:

As of 5pm, we are just $61,000 away from the biggest online fundraising month we’ve ever had!

That’s definitely not what Speaker Boehner bargained for when his Republican Members of Congress poured in $4.1 million to save their Tea Party majority.

If 1,800 more supporters step up today, we can break the all-time record. Will you help put us over the top?
