25 Things You Don’t Understand About Long Island (Unless You’re From There)

 

 

 

 

 

” Long Island is easily one of the most misunderstood of all islands, especially the longer ones. And whether or not they’ve actually been there, every New Yorker has feelings about it. Strong feelings. The rumors are abundant — everyone is on steroids, Bob Costas was born fully formed in a lab in Commack — and sometimes even true.

  But the time has come for everyone to know the real deal. Laid out below are 25 things that will bring the soon-to-be-former home of the greatest NHL franchise of the early 1980s into significantly clearer focus.

1. You can buy beer anywhere that sells anything
Except, quite oddly, at liquor stores.

2. We didn’t all play lacrosse growing up
But we do all own lacrosse shorts.

3. Fire Island isn’t just full of naked people
It is full of Rocket Fuel, though.

4. Suffolk County and Nassau County are two very, very different places
And everyone knows Suffolk is so much better. RIGHT?!? #countyfight

5. Our pizza (especially slice joints) and bagels are consistently better and more plentiful than those in the city
Don’t even get us started on the pizza bagels!!!

6. And one fine example named Little Vincent’s puts cold cheese on top of the not-cold cheese
It’s very insane, and very perfect. Also there’re about three fights a night in that place.

7. We all love Billy Joel completely un-ironically
Even though he’s crashed his car into the front of most of our houses.

8. Half of the island had to go into therapy after having their area code changed from 516 to 631 in 1999
Many still consider 631 a grave mark of shame.

9. North Shore beaches basically suck; South Shore beaches are like real beaches, with sand and waves
And also guys walking up and down with a cooler, shouting, “Fudgie Wudgie bars!!!”.

10. All of those beaches are fantastic for drinking on, even though you’re not supposed to
Especially at night.”

Candidates From Both Parties Packing Heat In Campaign Ads

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Guns are becoming the prop of choice in campaign ads around the country this midterm year.

  Take it as another sign that the Obama administration’s gun control push is running aground: Firearms have become this year’s go-to accessory for candidates of both parties seeking to advertise their toughness and willingness to fight.

  Republicans, and even some Democrats, in a dozen states are showing off their shooting skills in videos and television ads or posing with firearms in mailers, underscoring the backlash against federal and state proposals to restrict access to guns and ammunition.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” This year’s tone was set by Republican Joni Ernst, who won the Iowa Senate primary in June after running a television ad that shows her firing at a bull’s-eye at a shooting range while promising to “unload” on Obamacare. She now faces Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley.

“ Give me a shot,” quips Ms. Ernst in the ad. The Iowan is by no mean the only one locked, loaded and ready for her close-up.

  Alaska Republican Dan Sullivan, who’s running for Senate, kicked off his campaign after the August primary with a memorable ad in which he shoots a television set in response to negative campaign advertising.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Meanwhile, the National Rifle Association announced Wednesday the launch of an $11.4 million national ad campaign, starting with Republican Senate contests in Arkansas, Colorado and North Carolina.

“ Our Second Amendment rights are under attack by the Obama administration and Sen. Mark Udall,” says one 30-second ad unveiled on the Politico website to be aired in Colorado. “That’s why we need leaders like Cory Gardner in the U.S. Senate to fight back for us.” “

 

 

 

 

 

” The phenomenon has become so widespread that it prompted liberal TV network MSNBC to post Monday an online poll asking, “Are candidates acting insensitively firing guns in their campaign ads?” “

 

 

MSNBC Poll Gun Insensitive

 

 

   Even with the poll slanted in the usual MSNBC way the results are surely not what they had hoped for with 51% choosing answer number two that states: “No, they are depicting their beliefs.”  . Question number one was phrased: Yes , this is the first election cycle since Newtown . You can’t get much more leading than that .
 
   Of course this whole article and the poll leave unmentioned the fact that these pols , especially the Dems , are doing nothing but pandering for votes and actually do not believe in the sanctity of the Second Amendment , but it does go a long way towards demonstrating the power of us gun owners …

Sadie Robertson Gets Second Highest Score On First Night Of ‘DWTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Reality television star Sadie Robertson and her partner Mark Ballas got the second highest score of the night during Monday’s first episode of the 19th season of Dancing With The Stars.

  The Duck Dynasty alum and Ballas got 34 out of 40 points for their Cha Cha Cha dance to Katy Perry‘s song “Birthday.”

  In a clip shown before the pair’s performance, Robertson said her dancing skills have been limited to the mirror in her room thus far because she’s not allowed to dance in school. Luckily, Ballas — who has won the dancing competition 15 times — brought out her best moves for Monday’s routine.”

ISIS Releases New Video, Warns “Fighting Has Just Begun”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The Islamic State/ISIS/ISIL has released its initial ‘rebuff’ propaganda response to President Obama’s declaration of war against the ‘non-islamic’ terrorist organization. The brief video entitled “Flames of War” is shot like a blockbuster-movie-style trailer and threatens US troops and the White House. As Politico reports, the militant terror group vows that the “fighting has just begun” in the minute-long video, which features clips of American military forces under fire and a wounded U.S. soldier being taken from the battlefield. The video concludes as the words “Flames of War” flash on the screen, followed by “Fighting has just begun” and ends ominously: “Coming Soon.” Even more concerning perhaps is al-Qaeda branches calling for all jihadists to unite against the common threat from a US-led coalition. “

Victor Davis Hanson Offers Some Clues

 

 

 

 

 

” Comprehensive immigration reform — rarely has a catchphrase been so widely invoked and yet so little defined. Why?

  If proponents of so-called reform detailed exactly what they wanted, American voters would never support their self-interested agendas.

  Most Americans insist that existing federal immigration laws be enforced. They are adamant that the border be shut tight to all unlawful entry. And they prefer legal immigration to reflect merit, diversity and ethnically blind criteria.

  If those protocols were first established, half the public might also consider a pathway for legal residence for millions of foreign nationals already living in the United States without legal authority — but only if they could prove that they were without criminal records, not on public support, and have resided here for some duration.

  Unfortunately those classically liberal ideals are not driving Barack Obama’s promise to grant blanket amnesties through executive order after the midterm elections. His planned gambit is an admission that he has neither public support nor congressional sanction nor the force of settled law nor a logical or ethic argument. The effort is instead fueled by an agenda of perpetual big government and a concern to expand future constituencies, allay the anger of Latino activists, and accommodate wealthy business donors.”

Unique And Fun Traffic Light Has Pedestrians Dancing While They Wait For The Light To Turn Green

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Nobody likes to wait at traffic lights. Stopping at lights can be dangerous for impatient pedestrians willing to risk their lives just to cross the street a few seconds earlier.

  The folks at Smart created The Dancing Traffic Light, a concept providing a fun and safe way to keep people from venturing too early into the street. They started by placing a dance room on a square in Lisbon, Portugal and invited random pedestrians to go into the box and dance. Their movements were then displayed on a few traffic lights in real time. This resulted in 81% more people stopping and waiting at those red lights.”

Illegals Rushing Border Fearing U.S. Crackdown

” The summer lull in illegal border crossings from Mexico is about to give way to a rush of even more immigrants in a frenzy of fear that Washington is about to shut the door, according to several Hispanic leaders.

  In Honduras, for example, U.S. threats coupled with those from local leaders warning about the dangers of crossing the border have instead reenergized children and adults to run fast to America and pay inflated fees to “coyotes” to get them there.

“ As I am speaking, hundreds of children are trying to leave Honduras,” said Jose Guadalupe Ruelas, a Honduran leader who advocates for children. “When people in Honduras hear that the U.S. is going to get stricter with immigration rules and laws then people think to themselves, ‘Now is the time for me to go,’” he said through an interpreter.”

Jon Stewart Rips Obama For Acting ‘ Chaotic and Confused ’ On ISIS

 

 

 

 

Published on Sep 15, 2014

” September 15, 2014 – Jon Stewart spent the first part of Monday night’s Daily Show trying to sort through the confusion and mixed messaging being sent by the Obama administration on exactly what strategy they’re using (and what we should be calling it) to fight ISIS. Stewart first rounded up complaints from the “coalition of the kvetching” over Obama’s strategy before getting to the fight over semantics on whether the U.S. is at war. Stewart also found it funny that Obama is justifying ISIS action with the 2001 AUMF he actually wanted repealed, which is why he’s so “lucky that Congress never does anything you ask.”

  Stewart concluded by pointing out a key difference between the Obama and Bush administrations: the Bush administration was “incredibly disciplined and focused” in doing the wrong thing, while the Obama administration is doing the right thing, but couldn’t be more “chaotic and confused” about it.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poll: Americans Don’t Believe Obama Will Defeat ISIS; Now What?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Sowing distrust and discord among Americans has served Barack Obama well politically during his 68 months in office. But now as the former community organizer faces ISIS and the worst foreign policy crisis of his ineffective presidential tenure, that distrust and division has circled around to bite its master.

  After his nationally-televised address Wednesday and a tepid Friday fundraiser talk justifying his belated actions, a new poll reveals that a large majority of Americans says it lacks confidence he can accomplish his stated goals of beating the brutal new terror group that released a video of its beheading of a British citizen over the weekend.

Its not that Americans doubt the effectiveness of the American military.

  Nor do they question the need to militarily confront the Islamic extremists that have seized large portions of Syria and Iraq, killing thousands and threatening to export their terror attacks to the U.S. and Europe. Indeed, previous polls showed a substantial majority calling for the Democrat to attack ISIS even as he blithely admitted he had no strategy.

  The new NBC News/ Wall Street Journal/Annenberg Poll finds 62% of Americans support Obama taking action against ISIS.

  But fully 68% of his countrymen say they have “very little” or “just some” confidence that Obama will achieve his newly-discovered strategic goals of degrading and defeating ISIS through bombing and an international coalition.

  Perhaps worse, only slightly more than one-in-four (28%) have “a great deal” or “quite a bit” of confidence their president will achieve the murderous group’s demise.”

Rotherham Child-Sex Victim Confronts Her Alleged Abuser In The Street… But SHE Is Arrested By A Van Load Of Police

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A victim of Rotherham’s child sex abuse scandal confronted a man she says groomed her – but was left shocked when she was the one arrested.

  The woman was shocked when she saw the man walking through the town’s centre on Friday and decided to challenge him over the allegations.

  But she was tackled by two police officers and pushed up against a wall during her ‘thuggish’ arrest, a witness has said.

  A damning report released last month detailed how 1,400 children were sexually exploited in the area over a 16-year period.

  The Times reported that a woman whose case is being investigated by authorities – but has not yet been interviewed – was arrested after tackling a man she says groomed her when she was 15.

  A witness accused the police of ‘acting like insensitive thugs’, telling the paper: ‘A police van came and six male officers piled out.

‘ Two of them dragged her away, handcuffed her, put her against a wall and then shoved her into the back of the van.’

  South Yorkshire Police told today how they had been hoping to interview the woman in the weeks before the arrest, after they were told of the historic allegations by another organisation.

  But they only realised that she was the woman they had been trying to speak to after her arrest, and have now released her on bail.”

Teen Critically Injured After Police Use Stun Gun On Him

 

 

 

 

 

 

 ” Family and friends are questioning the use of force by Independence police after a struggle with an officer sent a 17-year-old to the hospital.

The officer used a stun gun on the teenager who is now in critical condition.

  Friends say Bryce Masters is in a medically induced coma because of injuries to his brain. They are hoping the teenager pulls through.

  They are cooling his body to try and reduce swelling that may have been caused by hitting his head on the concrete or losing oxygen for a long period of time.

” It looked like he hit his head on the concrete. You could see blood coming out of his mouth. The cop put his foot on his back and moved it back and forth like he was putting a cigarette out and asked him, ‘are you ready to get up now?’ You could tell the kid was going into convulsions,” Baker said.

  Witnesses who saw the whole thing happen say they watched Masters die and then come back to life after emergency crews resuscitated him. “

NY Democrats Seek Citizen Rights For Illegal Immigrants

Illegal aliens in New York could score billions in Medicaid and college-tuition money — along with driver’s licenses, voting rights and even the ability to run for office — if Democrats win control of the state Senate in November, the Post has learned.

  A little-known bill, dubbed “New York is Home,” would offer the most sweeping amnesty available anywhere in the country to nearly 3 million noncitizens living in the Empire State.

  It would bar police from releasing any information about them to the feds, unless it involves a criminal warrant unrelated to their immigration status.

  Under the proposed legislation, undocumented immigrants could also apply for professional licenses and serve on juries.

  The plan hinges on Democrats — who now control both the governorship and the state Assembly — wresting control of the Senate from Republicans, who oppose immigration amnesty.”

From the text of the bill itself here is it’s stated purpose:

” PURPOSE: To establish New York State citizenship, regardless of immigration status, and providing certain rights and benefits to persons with such citizenship. “

   As usual the co-sponsors of this proposed piece of legislation have absolutely no idea of the monetary implications to the taxpayers of the state they are sworn to represent . Buried at the very bottom of the bill is this important tidbit of information :

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined

  LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined. “

   Read the whole bill . It is not overly long , nor is it filled with an excess of legalese . The implications are plain for all to see .

    Vote buying and pandering pure and simple … all to be paid for by the sweat and toil of the very people these shameful politicians are supposed to be representing . Read more at the NY Post

Enterovirus D68 Sickens More Than A Dozen In New York

 

 

 

 

” More than a dozen cases of Enterovirus D68 have been confirmed in New York state, according to officials.

” EV-D68 is causing cases of severe respiratory illness … sometimes resulting in hospitalization, especially among children with asthma,” the NYS Department of Health said in a statement Friday.

  Enteroviruses are quite common in September; the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 10 to 15 million people are infected by these viruses each year. But doctors believe this particular type of enterovirus, Enterovirus D68, is causing more serious problems than others have in years past.

  As of September 11, more than 80 cases in six other states — Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky and Missouri — have been confirmed to be EV-D68, according to the CDC

New York is the first state in the Northeast with confirmed cases.

  On Thursday, media reports of kids flooding ERs in Alabama and Washington state spoke to the spread of the virus. Other states, including Michigan, Georgia, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Utah, are also investigating clusters of respiratory illnesses. Several have sent samples to the CDC for testing. “

 

 

 

    The above report from CNN offers a glimpse into our future as the Federal government of our illustrious “illegal immigrant president” refuses to do the primary job that they are charged with … providing for the security of our CITIZENS . Does anyone else find it suspicious that the arrival of this new “sickness” just happens to coincide with the beginning of the school year ?

Home schooling anyone ?

    We’ve all witnessed some of the horrific methods that the Jihadis are willing to stoop to in order to strike at the “infidel” but what happens if our children become the first casualties ?

Popular Burger King Japan Offering Back, Black

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In the roulette wheel that is fast food, Burger King Japan has a strategy when it comes to its new hamburger menu: always bet on black.

  The company, whose previous offerings include the “Windows 7 Whopper,” said on Wednesday it will start selling the Kuro Pearl burger and Kuro Diamond burger beginning on Sept. 19. The burgers will feature black buns, black sauce and black cheese in addition to black-pepper heavy beef patties. Kuro means black in Japanese.

  The black burgers were first introduced for a limited time by the chain in 2012 and became a hit, outselling all other new products that Burger King offered during the year, according to the company. They were also available for a limited time in 2013.

“ The black burgers sold extremely well because of their visual impact, but people continued to come back for them because of their taste,” a spokeswoman for the company told Japan Real Time.”

‘Jihadi Brides’: British Young Women Are Among Islamic State’s Newest Recruits

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Until late last fall, Aqsa Mahmood seemed like any other British teenager. She studied radiography at a local university, read the books of Roald Dahl and J.K. Rowling and had a crush on Zac Efron.

  But in November, the 19-year-old Glasgow girl disappeared. Four days later, she called her parents from the Syrian border. When they begged her to come home, she responded, “I will see you on the Day of Judgment.” Pictures purportedly of her have since been published all over Britain, taken from her now-shut down Twitter account, @UmmLayth.

  Melanie Smith, a research associate at King’s College London, is tracking 21 of these women, including Mahmood, through their social media accounts. They post selfies and cat photos alongside quotes from the Quran and calls to violence, and they have discussions through Twitter and Ask.fm about ways to support the militant movement.

These online conversations say a lot about the impulses that drive women to become “jihadi brides,” Smith said.

” They are going for adventure, just like the young men,” Smith told the Guardian.

  Young women are far from the only Westerners to have been recruited by the militant religious group, which has swept through Syria and parts of Iraq. The Guardian reports that about 500 British citizens have traveled to Syria to fight. Meanwhile, the Pentagon has said it knows of at least 100 American citizens who have traveled to Syria to fight with various groups, about a dozen of which are thought to have joined the Islamic State’s forces.”

WSJ Poll: Public Now Backs GOP On Immigration

 

 

 

 

 

” The U.S. public is coming around to the Republican position on immigration, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

  The survey found that 35 percent of Americans believe the Republican Party is better positioned to address immigration, as against 27 percent who think Democrats would do a better job. The December margins had favored Democrats 31 percent to 26 percent for Republicans.

  Proposals to offer some 11 million illegal immigrants a pathway to citizenship are losing support considerably. Now, 53 percent are in favor with 45 percent opposed. In April, those in favor numbered 64 percent against 35 percent who were opposed.

  Pollsters attribute the shift in public opinion to the influx of children who illegally crossed into the United States from Central America earlier this year. The GOP message has been that security on the border is lax and that a 2008 bipartisan law intended to discourage sex trafficking has had the unintended result of encouraging illegal migration and needs to be amended. “

That’s when Hernandez says police tried to arrest him, and then beat him “like a gang.” Via ABC 7:

[The officer] was telling me to put my hands behind my back, but ‘I’m like trying to understand what are you are arresting me for. Can you please tell me?'” Hernandez said.

Moments later, half-a-dozen officers arrived and appeared to pile-on. Hernandez said he was punched, kicked, beaten with nightsticks, and blasted with pepper spray. “
