The snow surprised us this morning. Even FjL was surprised when he woke up. After Ro made her snowman, we went back an hour later and there was a baby snowman next to it. Something weird going on in that yard....
I'm not an astrophysicist or anything like that, but, this idea that Russia wants to deflect an asteroid concerns me. If you deflect it, doesn't the remaining orbits it makes change, making it more possible for it to hit something else, that then hits something else, and so on ? We ought to be thinking about 'catching' it and holding it some place ? Shit, tie it down to the moon.
Saw this posted on a news blog.
President Obama just completed the UNHOLY and ANTI-AMERICAN TRIFECTA:
1st president in 110 years to miss the Army-Navy Football Game.
1st president to not attend any Christmas religious observance.
1st president to stay on vacation after a terrorist attack.
TR sends us the funniest joke of 2009. And possibly the last one as well. Enjoy. You racist you !!!
Everyone is in a hurry to scream 'racism' these days!
'In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?' The clerk looks at him and says, 'Are you Polish?'
The guy (clearly offended) says, 'Well, yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog, would you ask me if I was Jewish? Or if I had asked for a taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?' 'If I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?'
The clerk says, 'Well, no, I probably wouldn't!' With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, 'Well then, why did you
ask me if I'm Polish because I asked for Polish sausage?'
The clerk replied, 'Because you're in Home Depot !
Regarding this van bomb scare. Here are pics provided by our roving photographer ScoobyFitz. How the heck did a van, with blacked out windows, no plates end up not being towed in front of the Times Square Tower building ? If someone stops for 3 seconds there's a cop pushing them along. Sick shit. Disgraceful.
I'm just wondering to myself, there's a bomb scare in Times Square and our man ScoobyFitz is in the area with other people, one of whom is clearly trying to hide their identity and I go, hmmm.....
Work at the new bocce ball courts is slow, but steady. The brickwork is going along nice.
The new doors were installed at the bank. They are now replacing the sidewalk stone, and buttoning things up. Our glass canopy will be worked on next.
I don't want to come off as a heartless SOB, but I am done with that fat woman, who lost all her fingertips and toes to her addiction to cigarettes. Am I the only one asking who paid for all of these operations ? She says she had 8 already. What sort of health care does she have ? What incentive did she have to stop smoking after the first fingertip operation ? If she's on Medicaid, then I'm fucking pissed off. She should be left to die and stop draining my pocket.
As the end of the year nears, I'm beginning to review my 2009 photos. Here's a nice collage I put together to reflect on part of the experience known as 2009.
Happy Birthday to my momma. I Love You and we love you.
Frankie V and Rosanne were tossing the football yesterday. The kid's pretty good.
We had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner with Ro's side of the family, and then Christmas day with mine. Food was great, and people had a great time. Thanks to our hosts, DA and AtA. Enjoy our Christmas 2009 pics.
Happy Birthday Sparky.
Merry Christmas everyone. May your day be merry and bright as you enjoy your families today.
AlT-L and the gurls came to the city the other day. It was good to see them all.
Also got to see Johnny5 at Bryant Park.

Happy Birthday to my brudder FLrc. We love you !!!
Had a nice Christmas (anniversary) lunch with my management team, present, past and stuck in Philly.
Here a bunch of other pics from the blizzard and cleanup. The Blizzard of '09
Dang, we got a lot of snow with this blizzard. After the cleanup, Ro and the kids on the block built the first snowman of the Winter.
While doing research for a web video cam for my son, I came across this video. No pants subway ride.
Hag witch surfaces to support her man. Read Al Qaeda Reaches Out to Women. If it's such an obligation, then why isn't this witch the first on line to strap on a bomb belt. whatever happened to leading by example ? Fucking hypocrites.
Well, I guess it's 'settled'. Iran is working on a nuclear trigger. Time to do to them that what needs to be done.
Is there a hyperdimensional portal (Stargate) in Norway ?
It looks like even scientists read the Musings. Here's an article where they are suggesting building artificial tree forests to absorb the CO2. I don't understand why real trees couldn't be used, but hey, that's just me thinking...
If this story is true, they should impeach Barry. 20 senators demand probe of health-care vote 'threat'
Tiger is up to around 14 ladies now. Can you imagine if any of them are pregnant with his son ? Do you think they might take the chance and call the kid Tigger ? I would.
Wanna read something funny. Here's the Tiger Woods bio on the Tag Heuer website. Pay attention to the 2nd sentence and 3rd paragraph. Someone should remove this for the moment. Don't you think ???
Looks like Tag Heuer didn't take down all of those Tiger posters. I found this one still up at a popular 5th avenue location....
We're getting closer to having our spot ready. Here's the latest view as they add to the crowned canopy.
Some people have the luck o' the Irish with them. Here's a very lucky and $10,000 happier ScoobyFitz ...
Well, almost killed myself last night trying to put more lights up for my honey. I don't like heights as it is, and this didn't make it any better.
It's that time of year that I need to break out the heavy stuff. Here's my annual favorite - Santa, the Scientific View
|We had our 'Christmas
party' the other night. Very nice to get everyone together to celebrate
the close of a very productive year.|
The scaffolding is completely down now at the bank, and it looks great. As an added bonus, it looks like they are installing some sort of canopy over the entrance, which gives us cover in the rain and snow at our perch...
From AT. Urinals of the world. Some of these are real funny.
I'm a simple man when it comes to some things. I'm sitting here watching the talk shows, reading about climate change, climate gate and the EPA regulating breathing, and I go back to Biology 101. The way I recall things, people inhale oxygen, and exhale CO2. Plants and trees absorb CO2 and put out oxygen. If we really, truly, honestly have too much CO2 in the oxygen we breathe, why don't we just plant more trees and plants ? We ought to be able to see measurable changes over time. And at the same time, if sea levels will be rising, and all of the already known coastal cities are going to be threatened, we should be moving out of those locations now, before it's a fucking problem. It will require money, jobs and industry to build a new city, somewhere safe from all this and relocate these people now, before catastrophe strikes us. It will do a lot for the economy, and put people to work as well. Pretty freaking simple, eh ?
Happy Birthday to my beautiful niece MS. We Love You !!!.
Both ScoobyFitz and TR provided this video of a new BBC play called For the Love of Mrs. Brown. Hilarious.
It's that time of year again, when people get all stuttery over what to say to one another. The phrase is simple, Merry Christmas. Join me by getting your own Just Say Merry Christmas bracelet.
ScoobyFitz posted this on his Facebook page, and it's quite spectacular. Enjoy Carol of the Bells - Celtic Woman
Our Man about Town, CH sent in this funny item...
The United States Post Office created a stamp with Obama on it. The stamp won't stick to envelopes. This enraged Obama, who demanded a full investigation. After a month of testing and $1.69 million in congressional spending, a special commission presented the following findings: The stamp is in perfect order. People are spitting on the wrong side.

Here's the Leone Family virtual Christmas card for this year. Merry Christmas everyone. Don't be afraid to say it.
Thanks to LvV for this submission of an Italian auction.
Riddle me this Batman. When is a poll not a good enough poll for Barry and his band of commie misfits ? Answer : When it's a poll opposite what you want it to be. Read the latest hypocrisy from these knuckleheads. Don't they have ay shame ? They can't even tell consistent bullshit stories when pressed. We the People are starting to wake up, rise up and speak up ... btw - Where IS that birth certificate ?
My pic and comments made the Queens Crap blog, I'm published ...
Work continues on the new bocce ball courts at Whitestone Park.
Petco is opened, and has some very nice items. The fish are real nice looking and the staff are friendly.
Lindenvue Shopping Center was remodeled, and looks great...
Here's the pic I made for Zelda's birthday.
I spent all day working on our Christmas lights. I think it came out good. I hope you enjoy it. If you have time, drive by and take it all in...
We had a very nice dinner and coffee & cake with my grandmother. Yesterday she spent time with our cousins on the island. Zelda enjoyed herself and made us all feel her soft as a baby's ass skin... (it really is very soft) We love you Grandma, here's to 99 more years. And if anyone has a shot at that it's her.
The matriarch of our family turns 99 years old today. That's right, my grandmother, Zelda inches a bit closer to the century mark, and shows no signs of slowing down. She stills lives alone and is the first and last one dancing at parties. You're an amazing woman. An inspiration to all of us and an anchor for our family. I Love You, We Love You. Happy Birthday !!!
Why do we even entertain the idea of giving terrorists rights ? Read how the Taliban attacked a mosque, killed 36 people, including Pakistani military men and the wives and children who were at prayers. What kind of sick shit is this ? I say find their families and kill them all.... And if we catch these maggots, we can't 'waterboard' them ? We ought to attach their testicles to car batteries to get info from them, enough is enough. Start playing using their rules and see how fast they come around...
Read about this little 'event' that took place recently on a plane out of Atlanta. Are officials hiding details in hijacking 'dry run' ? What would your reaction be had this happened on a plane you were on ? I know what I would do ... Stand up , Rise up People !!!
From our easy rider, LF, the new Golf Digest is coming out. Can't wait to read the tips from Tiger ...
You gotta love those tree huggers. They do make great commercials. Checkout the polar bears falling from the sky. Thanks to JjLJr for passing this along.
Happy Birthday to one of my favorite sisters. AtA is older today, bit no less beautiful. I Love You, Happy Birthday.
I really miss the 80's and George Carlin. Life wasn't so PC back then. See how he deals with a heckler.
Here's a kool video David Draiman from Disturbed joining the stage with the Metal School guys, singing Whole Lotta Love.
It must be fun being the NYPD. You get to drive up 5th avenue the wrong way ....
They finally uncovered our old hangout. It's be just a few more days before the scaffolding is taken down, and we have our spot back. It's been a little over a year now.

Workers are beginning to remove the temporary walls on front of the landmark building.
Here's a story about a 90 year old medal of honor winner, a flagpole and a town. He should just strap the pole to the side of the host, and that should satisfy the town.
This should piss you off more and more as you watch it. It's a CBS commercial for one of their shows dubbed over scenes with Frosty the Snowman. What the f*%k is CBS thinking ? We are doomed if we continue down this path.
Happy Birthday to my favorite nephew, FvL. Frankie Fafa turns 6 today. We love you young boy....
Happy December. See what's taken over the old CompUSA storefront. Checkout the videos at http://whatwillshedonext.com/
I'm really enjoying this story of the Whitehouse 'gatecrashers'. I hear some people want to arrest them for trespassing. Can you imagine that ? All those Mexican illegals coming over our border, and these 2 they want to arrest for trespassing ... Someone 'wink & nodded' them in. Can't wait for it to come out.
This story of the gunman who killed those 4 cops is a bit ridiculous. How is it they staked out the house all night, and then find he isn't there ???? In those 8 or so hours, he could have flown to NYC and had dinner and a movie. How many times did they yell, 'we'll count to 10 and we're coming in...' geez....
Here are our Happy Thanksgiving 2009 photos.
Read about how Fat Albert had to run away from protesters in Chicago, while he tried to sign books. I wonder how many 'carbon credits' he expended in his race to safety ... One has to wonder that if protesters are hassling the elite in Chicago, where their Dear Leader hails from, what is the rest of the country doing to these people ?
What's wrong with the Secret Service ? They keep insisting that President Obama was never in any danger when those 2 people crashed his first state dinner. Just because these people passed metal detectors or bomb sniffing dogs doesn't mean that once inside they couldn't have picked up one of those fancy metal serrated knives and cut someone's head off before being stopped. Once inside many things become potential weapons.... Wake up America. Haven't they seen the Godfather movies. Freaking eyeglasses can even be used as a weapon
Thanksgiving dinner was wonderful. Rosanne cooked up a fantastic meal. Thank you honey, I love you very much. Here's a few pics of the family all together
This turkey wasn't pardoned. A few more hours ...
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Enjoy today as you meet and gather with your family or friends or those that matter to you in some way. I'm thankful for my amazing wife Rosanne, my great family, co-workers and the time we have left. God Bless America
I find today as a day of reflection. I also view Thanksgiving as the one true American holiday that all citizens, visitors, illegal aliens, or anyone else here in America today should look upon as core to our way of life. If you are visiting, respect us for it, if you are American be reminded what today really represents. A free people looking out for themselves. Not for government to run our lives. It's also a time for traditions. Why isn't March of the Wooden Soldiers on regular channels ? Why no more Miracle on 34th Street before Christmas ? Pledge of Allegiance in schools ? In order for Americanism to prevail, these things must be brought back into our lives, regardless of background, original country or culture. We the People need to take this country back to what is was meant to be.
From my oldest, JjLJr, a computer generated look at how Manhattan was before the white man took over ...
OK, so I've been wasting time over at Facebook, and I have to tell you, I don't get it. I do get a headache, but I really don't get it. I'll give it a little more time, but if these headaches persist, ciao Facebook.

Here's a bunch of reposts from 2008 regarding solar system climate change.
I'm a big believer of the Planet X - Nibiru concerns and their connection to various 2012 prophecy. I also don't buy into the whole man-made global warming as the reasons for our strange severe weather. I think the reasons are much more serious and link to the above. So, here are a variety of posts that try to explain why all of the celestial bodies in our solar system are also heating up. That's right, other planets and moons are also experiencing temperature rises. Go figure that out.
What does it mean for Barry that Saturday Night Live opened with this clip . I think the socialist has problems.... They passed up poking fun at Sarah for this
Sign this petition for the impeachment of Barry. Read the Articles of Impeachment, very accurate.
Just when you thought those greedy, capitalistic corporations were satisfied with you wearing their logos on your hats, bags, pants, panties and bottles, comes the next evolution in advertising. LED tattoos could turn skin into screens.
Looks like someone got caught doctoring the data - Read about hacked emails that reveal the global warming fraud.
I'm a big fan of Harlem based Rev. James Manning. I think you would be too if you listed to him speak. Here is Alan Keyes coming to his defense. It seems Barry's boys are out to shut him down Chicago style ...
Our government, so predictable, now we have the next round of re-conditioning, preparing you for that special Universal Health Care you've always wanted. Now, young woman can go 2 years between pap smears, why waste money and test every year .... Wake up America.... before it's too late.

Let's get this passed around, folks - these people have brought this upon themselves!!!
From AlT a wonderful idea for the holidays we can all wrap our arms around. And, it's a boost to the economy, keeps our unions working and sends a message, all for the price of a stamp.
What a clever idea!
Want to have some fun this CHRISTMAS? Send the ACLU a CHRISTMAS CARD this year.
As they are working so very hard to get rid of the CHRISTMAS part of this holiday, we should all send them a nice, CHRISTIAN card to brighten up their dark, sad, little world..
Make sure it says "Merry Christmas" on it.
Here's the address, just don't be rude or crude. (It's not the Christian way, you know.)
125 Broad Street
New York , NY 10004
Two tons of Christmas cards would freeze their operations because they wouldn't know if any were regular mail containing contributions. So spend 44 cents and tell the ACLU to leave Christmas alone. Also tell them that there is no such thing as a " Holiday Tree". . . It's always been called a CHRISTMAS TREE!
And pass this on to your email lists. We really want to communicate with the ACLU! They really DESERVE us!!
For those of you who aren't aware of them, the ACLU, (the American Civil Liberties Union) is the one suing the U.S. Government to take God, Christmas or anything Christian away from us. They represent the atheists and others in this war. Help put Christ back in Christmas!
Pat Buchanan has a real good article today called - Is America at war, or not ?
I carry this particular graphic on my site for a reason. So anyone, at any time can take a bit of their time to remind themselves the effects of the 'religion of peace' extreme adherents. For no other reason but to highlight the tremendous volume of consistent, sustained and without morals approach of these, 'people' and I use that term with great angst, cause they aren't really human. I know, made in Gods image and all, but these folks need some help. Do we try to 'understand' and be empathic to rats, termites, or bedbugs ? No, we just want to rid ourselves of them. If we all stood together, it would end quickly.
Checkout the recreation of the Flight 1549 bird strike and Hudson River ditching. Amazing.

Our man about town, CH, sends in this investigative report photo that uncovers the truth behind how pumpkin pies are made. We may be too late for this holiday season, but, buyer beware next year...
Read about the latest Muslim who went on a rampage in upstate NY. This creep was arrested in Rochester for trying to run people over with his car. When he was caught, he stated to cops that Muslims were going to fix this country.
What is Barry and his band of fascist fairies up to now ? Trying the 9/11 guys in NYC in civilian courts is quite bizarre, and has no solid foundation in logic. They are enemy combatants and should be tried in military commissions. KSM and his 'brothers' aren't citizens, waged war on us, and deserve to be treated in military trials and then hanged as quickly as possible. NYC doesn't need this extra exposure to risk. We have enough every day.
I've posted many links, articles, paragraphs, personal rants over the years about the pitfalls of Socialism, progressivism, Marxism, or whatever you want to call what's happening in America. Here's another story, Marxism summed up in a few sentences.
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for,that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931

Here's the full montage of the USS New York pics we've taken, since she arrived and pulled into port for our visit.
Today is Veterans Day. A day to honor our fellow Americans who took to serving our country. Some lost their lives protecting us and our way of life, while others serve today or reflect upon prior service. We honor you all. Each and every one of you. Thank You for your sacrifice.
It isn't often that I'm captured on film, but here are 2 videos that caught both me and Ro at the Bryant Park skating rink on 2 different dates.
Well, that's over !!! Thank God. John Allen Muhammad was executed tonight. Pronounced dead at 9:11pm, how fitting is that for the scumbag ?
Here are the pics from our USS New York tour of ship - Nov. 2009
For Veteran's Day tomorrow, here's a wonderful poem by my friend retired Navy Lt. JgA. God Bless You and your family for all your service to our country. Reflections of a Veteran
Me, Ro and Joe visited the USS New York today, and got to walk aboard and meet the crew. A fine crew they are, young and willing to serve our country for our freedom. An awesome experience. I took some great photos and hope you enjoy them - USS New York tour of ship - Nov. 2009. I left one of my Never Forget bracelets with the 9/11 steel plate plaque, and am honored to have it stay on that ship for it's commission.
I get a real kick out of reading these stories. I especially like when these folks have beliefs that Muslims shouldn't kill Muslims. How do they say that with a straight face. Did Hasan radicalize others at Fort Hood ? They seem to have no problem killing other Muslims when they have bombs strapped to themselves and then walk into a mosque, or market, or on a bus full of other Muslims. Retards.
Here's my special tribute collage to the USS New York, as it was commissioned into service this weekend in NYC. God Bless You and your crew.
Regarding the Ft. Hood Muslim terrorist killer. For me things are simple. He has stated that he was a Muslim first and an American second. That is opposite being American. I think that everyone would agree with me. Americans don't give a shit what your religious beliefs are or aren't. So long as you don't shove them down our throats, we could care less. HOWEVER, an American is an American first and their religious beliefs, if any are secondary. If your religious beliefs somehow conflict with the country you decided to live in or move to, you should think about either moving away or adapting. You can't decide to be here and think you can force your way of thinking on others. It's time for you to leave or shut up and be an American first. I fault the American educational system for not teaching more of our constitution and founding father's ideology that shaped America. With this guy, it's even more important to acknowledge. Why ? Because he voluntarily ENLISTED in our Armed Forces. You can't join the service and think for a minute you have some option to ignore, disagree or otherwise influence the actions our commanding officers direct upon you. You are deployed where your country needs you. You weren't drafted, or forced to serve, so you lose your right to 'conscientiously object' to orders you receive from your superiors. You don't get to choose your destination. This ain't a fucking personal vacation in some far away luxury location.
And on a positive note, another US citizen Muslim terrorist gets executed on Tuesday. Just in time for the holidays. John Allen Muhammad gets to meet Allah on Tuesday, God willing. So, you see, God is Great. He must be so looking forward to that sweet, flowing river of honey and all those anxious virgins waiting for him. I hope he isn't disappointed by having some liberals slow him down and cause a delay to his looming sexfest ...
Congratulations to Phil Mickelson, winner of the 2009 HSBC Champions tournament in Shanghai.
My son Joe turns 23 years old today. Simply saying we're proud of him isn't enough. A newly minted NYPD Police Officer, he makes his family proud each and every day. He has compassion, honor, modesty, energy, hope and willingness to serve. An all around good man, who has strong friendships, a healthy love life and a wonderful girlfriend. However, the most significant reason for his personality and well being is the bond he maintains with his 2 brothers and mother. When one thinks of the value of strong family bonds, his relationship with mom and bros are at the core of his success. I Love You Joe, we love you Joe, Happy Birthday !!!
The USS New York gets commissioned today in New York City. It's a time to reflect upon the many sacrifices our young men and women who have fallen in defense of our liberties.
One such hero is 1st Lt. Ronald W. Winchester. Please visit his memorial page if you have some time today.

Classic Pins has some nice looking pins to mark the NY Yankees 27th World Series win. Good prices too.
Anyone surprised that the Fort Hood gunmen was a religion of peacenik ? But, shush, don't mention all the other recent 'events' perpetrated by other religion of peaceniks. It's only OK to piss on Jesus, or destroy Christian symbols in movies. Perhaps the Christians should follow the lead of the religion of peaceniks. Threaten violence if they are insulted, and issue 'curses' on the infidels. God is Great !!!
Happy Anniversary to Boom Boom and the missus. 15 years of bliss, and still going strong. God Bless !!!
Congratulations to the New York Yankees on winning the World Series for the 27th time. I don't watch the games all year, but enjoy the playoffs and series games, when the Yank are there. It was nice to see them win in the new stadium and continue the tradition in a new home. Sorry Scotty ...
This week began our 2010 health benefits open enrollment period at work. We were warned about significant increases and cuts in benefits, and they ain't kidding. So far, my costs for the same coverage jumped by 121%. That's right, doubled for one year period. They added a deductible, co-insurance, and out of pocket maximums. Shame on you all. Mind you, we haven't had a pay increase in over 3 years, so with everything else going up around us, how is this supposed to work for us ?

Oops, gets even better for Republicans, or is that worser for Socialists ? Congratulations Mayor Mike !!!
Big election news. Looks like Republicans won governor in both Virginia and New Jersey. The 2 states where Barry made several visits each, and yucked it up with his fellow Maoists. Hmmm.... A vast right wing conspiracy perhaps ?
I almost blew the house up last night. Wifey asks me to roll over the BBQ, so I did and even started it for her. Went inside, we both got caught up in USS New York coverage on the news, I tell her I smell something burning, she asks if I started the BBQ and boom, we got a huge blaze in the yard. And the lesson learned ? Don't bother helping the wife. She's better off without my help.
Be sure you get out and vote today. I was actually going to skip it. Came home, got on the couch, and the phone rings. It's Mike Bloomberg telling me he knows I didn't vote and asked me to go vote, so I did.
My AJ sends this in, and it's quite funny. Heck, it's election day, so check out Rowan Atkinson's sketch about the Devil Welcoming People to Hell
My honey snapped this pic and me and LF hanging outside. LF just made 29 years at the Bank and is one of our senior leaders on our team and a close friend of mine.
This lady hawking AM New York newspapers outside the 5th ave subway station sure looks familiar...
Our Man about Town, CH, came across this hotel in his travels around the globe. A 727 fuselage suite.
Rosanne and I got to see the USS New York come home to NYC today. What an experience. It was great to see that ship come to our city. Rosanne also saw it dock next to the Intrepid and got some additional great shots of her. With some luck, we may even get tix to her commissioning on 11/7.
Here are a few videos of the USS New York, as it entered New York harbor this morning for the first time.
Pablo did it. Finished the marathon in 5:42:01. Congratulations Pablo, we're proud of you !!!
Halloween was fun today. We had a bunch of kids. They all had a great time. Checkout the Happy Halloween - October 2009 pics.
Here's a recap of my Days of Autumn - Fall 2009 photos so far.
Here's a nice pic of a group of trees showing their colors down the park.
I've been called a 'birther' by some, and well, I'm damn proud of it. All I want is the answers to a few questions. No more than we'd ask of Bush or Clinton, or me or you in a similar position. Anywho, this is a great article about when Michelle contradicts Barry's birthing event , er, appearance on earth. What does it mean ? Who knows, is the truth important to you ? Did we not get promised transparency ?
And then we have Joseph Farah asking his questions in his latest piece - The ever-changing Obama nativity story - simple questions. Like Beck says, questions one shouldn't be afraid to ask. They aren't hurtful questions, they are valid questions, deserving an honest response. Pretend you wanted to ask these questions yourself, to someone else...
Well, this was bound to happen. California is now looking at way to possibly legalize and then tax marijuana. It's a win-win for the state. It increases revenues by a billion dollars, and cuts expenses by tens of millions on prison and police costs...
I know a lot of impressionable people who read the NY Times, so I hope they get information from several sources before they accept something written on toilet paper. Here's a piece from that hag, Maureen Dowd on an article she wrote about the Pope, which was full of distortions, and to be quite honest, apparently, just plain old flat out lies. I wouldn't even give people an out anymore for some of the lunacy lately. And the way Beck does his thing, this one is riddled with verifiable, traceable facts. Something to learn from....
Hey, it looks like the violence is coming from the peaceful side again. Someone's now taking shots at poor old Lou Dobbs. Why is it always that way ? Now, what's missing from the article is the part where little old Mrs. Dobbs grabs here shotgun and blows the fuckers away.... but I digress.
As Halloween approaches, here's our little treat for you.... Happy Halloween from the Zany Leone's

The neighborhood kids repainted the St. Fidelis mural, and it looks great.
We're about a week away from the opening of the Bryant Park ice skating rink.
Checkout this wonderful rainbow forming over the Point tonight.
By the time I got to the Yankee rally in Times Square it was over.
Me and Goombazza got to see Hulk Hogan at his book signing at Barnes & Noble.
I hear the first kids got their vaccinations. OK everyone, go for it. If you believe it ...
For those struggling with the decision to get the kids vaccinated - when the first kids get vaccinated, then you may want to consider it for your children. Until then, don't do it.
Roving Reporter checks in with a few doozies. Here are my favorites.
From TR, who's still recuperating from knee surgery. This funny comedian, John Pinette on French vs Italian food
We had a very colorful sunset this evening here in the Point.
We had a very nice dinner with our dear friends E&T, and B&V. Even got to watch Rambo, which is always a crowd pleaser... Dinner w/Friends - October 2009
The front of the library looks nice this time of year.
For those that can't wait, the Bryant Park ice skating rink is beginning to be built. Should be open in about 2 weeks.
I'm hoping that since Halloween is next week, this is a gag, and not what happened to our happy nurses' last psycho patient...
We haven't reached the fall peak yet, but these trees are showing great color down by the bridge.
So, what the heck was this that washed up on a Guinea beach ?
Here's a tip for you. Don't get caught jaywalking in Brooklyn.
I updated my PEZ page - LPTS as of 10.24.09
BongoBilly sends in this field photo of the Rock and Samuel L Jackson filming 'The Other Guys' the other day.
My honey picked up some pinecones down the park. They make a great soup.
TV stopped by the other day to say hi to the boys out front.
Yesterday was a bad day for animals. I spotted 3 dead ones in one day.
Soupy Sales died the other day. He was a pretty funny guy in his time.
Here's a couple of pics from Frank's birthday bash.
Our youngest son, Frank, turns 17 years old today. Frank is a senior at Holy Cross High School, and maintains excellent grades. He has developed into a fine young man. He's best friends with his mother, which is a great contribution to his maturity and compassion as a person. He's best friends with his brothers as well. I've never seen 3 brothers as close as my 3 sons. Their relationship will sustain them through all time. They will always have each other. We are very proud of you Frank, and we love you very much. Happy Birthday !!!
Where oh where are you Don Ciccci ? YF is looking for you ....
Just asking, but if you had allergies to certain foods, would you eat things you don't know what they are ? And after one bite, would you eat more ?
I've always said, be nice to those you meet on the way up, cause you will pass them again on the way down.
Spoke to an old RNB colleague the other day, and he confirmed for me that JW has left the Bank. Thank God, what a scumbag he was. So long JW, no one will miss you.
My honey is down in AC with the gurls, and sends in this pic. I'm hoping these are other people, and not an indication that the room service is good....
You're gonna love this one PEZ has a Disney Fairies set out. 3 new Fairies were released. Their names you ask ? Well, Rosetta, Fawn and Terence.
Congrats to ET and his family on the birth of his beautiful grand-daughter. Look at this face !!!
Bongo Billy gives us a glimpse of speed control in Denmark. I'm applying for my passport now. Enjoy the Bikini Bandits.
BB also sent in this vintage pic of Robert Plant onstage. Now, if I was a chick ....
The USS New York is headed our way for commissioning in NYC on 11/7/09. And then it visits for a week, with the public allowed to board her. Please make some time to visit.
I like gadgets. So much so that my old man calls me his Asian son. No offense meant. Imagine my glee when my AJ gave me this really kool new toy to play with. This is gonna come in real handy around the office.
Have you been over to check on what Scooby has been up to ? He does have some stuff on his mind. Like his latest rant on A Inconvenient Truth
Have you heard the sad news out of the professional wrestling world ? Captain Lou Albano died today. He was a pretty entertainign wrestler during his time. You know, back in the day...
Here's a story about the Mars rover finding another meteorite on the surface of Mars. As interesting as the article might be about our amazement that we've 'stumbled' across 2 of these, I am more interested in the not talked about story here. Aren't you the least bit curious how it is we have a freaking remote controlled car on the surface of freaking Mars, that has kept it's charge, manages to recharge for over 5 freaking years without having to be plugged into a freaking wall outlet ? Aren't you curious ? Just a little ? My freaking phone, pda, mp3 player, camera konks out after less that 24 freaking HOURS and this thing is still freaking driving around Mars for 5 freaking years. Something is freaking wrong, and we are being freaked with in a most freaking spooky way.
Visited the NJDC today to take some photos. Here are MW, TT and SaY providing their onsite support.
We were down Whitestone Park today. And it was a fine day for our fuzzy friends at Francis Lewis Park.
Work is continuing on our new bocce ball courts at the park.
You can always count on our man about town, CH for international items. Here's a video about a social experiment, using stairs as a piano.
Without celebrities where would we get our comedy ? Dopey quote of the week from Alicia Silverstone - "Dairy was designed to make a baby calf into a 400-pound cow. So it's like, if I want to be a 400-pound cow, I know what to eat"
I heard a great joke on the news the other night. President Obama won the Nobel Appease Prize, oh, it really happened ? It's still a pretty funny joke.
We owed Pop a dinner for his birthday from last week. Went to Primo Amore with Zelda too.
The pool hall we go to is closed for renovations. It don't look like it's opening anytime soon to me. It looks like they are adding a few floors to it too.
Checkout these kool 3-D chalk drawings.
Roving Reporter checks in with this image from the Girl Scouts support site. Just buy the cookies...
JjLJr sends in this cool video of 1 million frames per second slow motion of bullets hitting objects. Amazing.
We have an urgent swine flu health alert for everyone. Even though our health care workers are required to get the H1N1 vaccine, doesn't mean they won't get the swine flu. Our favorite nurse, KP seems to have gotten infected despite the vaccine. So be careful out there.... On the positive side, you will be able to identify anyone with the swine flu rather quickly.
JM turns 12 today, and all he got from us was this half-eaten striped bass. Hey, a gift is a gift. It's the thought that counts. Happy Birthday JustInTime
I dug this out of the archives, from December 2004 as I was cleaning up some older posts.

I love these types of articles. Read Ellis Washington - Because liberalism is a mental disorder. There really is no other way to explain the twisted logic, adolescent way of thinking.
It's good to see that cops get towed sometimes as well. I wonder if PPOJaL wrote this ticket ?
Here's a question I have begun to ask again at our monthly tenant meetings. Are we still bullet-proof ?
Here's a nice pic of Jack and his hottie mom.
We had a mini-band parked at the corner of 39th and 5th on Friday. Actually sounded pretty good.
Leaves are starting to turn by us. The new camera picks up the colors pretty good.
We think this was some sort of Teletubby hanging out on 5th ave. I'm glad my kids are too old for these things.
Had a nice lunch to mark 10 great years of service from a few guys at work. Celebrating 10 Years - Juan, Paul, Tom - October 2009
From KP, checkout the people of Walmart.
So, today starts the H1N1 vaccinations in the US. I think that before regular citizens (or non-citizens) begin to take this shot, our leaders ought to lead by example. What do I mean ? Well, until Barry and his family and cabinet takes the shot. Then the Senate and House take theirs, we regular Americans can wait. If this vaccination is so safe and necessary, then these folks should be the first to take it, we wait a month or so, then we can take it. Many people are struggling with the decision to allow their kids to get this shot, and this would go a long way in allaying their fears for the families.
We just painted the garage door. It came out pretty good, don't you think ?
It looks like the sale of our building is now official. 452 5th avenue sold to Israeli investors.
Today is my old man's birthday. Happy Birthday Pop. We Love You !!!
This is what happens when striped bass don't pay attention at Orchard Beach. They get eaten by the blues. JM was there to pick up the piece...
Here's a relevant piece on the Polanski matter. Wonder Why Middle America Doesn't Trust Hollywood Liberals? Three Words: Weinstein and Polanski
I bought meself a new camera. The Samsung DualView TL220, pretty slick camera, and at 12 megapixels blows the doors off of my old kool Kyocera. One of the nice things about it is the 27mm focal length, which allows for a slight wide-angle view. This is great for groups and building photos. The macro mode is pretty good too, so my macro shots will be super great going forward. I hope you enjoy the new images.
It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's Superman, on 5th avenue.
From TR, we have a story. About a man, the beach, and a deck chair. Ouch !!!
