Admin Mod to Trolls: “Drop Dead”
New York Times ^

Posted on 06/01/2006 1:08:49 PM PDT by Buck Ninety-Nine

WASHINGTON, May 31 — After vowing to steer a greater share of antiterrorism money to the highest-risk communities, Department of Homeland Security officials on Wednesday announced 2006 grants that slashed money for New York and Washington 40 percent, while other cities including Omaha and Louisville, Ky., got a surge of new dollars.

Homeland security officials said the grants were a result of a more sophisticated evaluation process

New York officials were given a one-page tally that explained, in part, how the region's risk-based standing was calculated. The document said the region had no "national monuments or icons."

90% of the population in both cities sees the administration as a bigger threat than terrorists so they should feel safer now. Right?

True, but the terrorists obsession revolves around NY. It remains target number one - and not just for a building this time. The whole Island is a target.

they have basically turned federal homeland security spending - into pork projects for local governments all across the country.

As Mayor Bloomberg says, "Nobody ever arrested a terrorist with a map of a cornfield in his pocket."

New York is a target. It makes sense to spend the money where the target is. Homeland Security money is turning into just one more big barrel of pork.

NYC has received the lion's share of Homeland Security funds for the past five years. What about the rest of the nation? Terrorists don't only go after the marquee targets, but also look for the weak link (i.e., Beslan). Not surprisingly, Peter King is jumping at another opportunity to bash the CinC during wartime.

But New Yorkers have made it clear that they "understand" why terrorists don't like us. If that is the case then they should not turn their Island into an armed fortress. Right?

Adminstration to New York: "Drop Dead"

Hmmm, I believe it was actually New York, a la Hevesi, just told Bush to drop dead, that Schumer would shoot him between the eyes.

I think the New York papers have gone a bit overboard on this one today.
It's not just The stupid Slimes, even the normally conservative New York Post had to have a go too.
I think I detect more than a whiff of typical New York arrogance here.

Just look at the the Post's front page headlines today :

"Feds slash our funds to boost hicks in sticks"

http://www.nypost.com/

Now how do you like that?
That's arrogance and condescension for you right there.
The fact that I live here doesn't mean I am going to condone such hysteria.

Omaha is hardly a corn field.

The people who oppose this generally live in New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, California and maybe Texas. The states with the most to lose money-wise. While the people in Wyoming and Montana among many, many other state support equal dollars for states. No one is going to change anyones' mind.

On 1010wins this morning, I heard them report that one of the reasons for cutting the monies is from information showing the money was being used for pork barrel projects. I just checked the site and I see that comment didn't make it into the article. So I can't link what I heard them report.

The local tabloids savaged Chertoff, with an editorial cartoon in the Daily News comparing him with infamous traitor Benedict Arnold.

``Terror? What Terror?'' asked a mocking front page headline in the New York Post. ``Feds To City: Drop Dead,'' read page one of the Daily News.

Maybe he's talking about 7.5 million or so who started pulling the straight "D" lever again less than a year after 9/11. You know, the 7.5 million that have given us Senators Schumer and Clinton?

Why drag California into it?
BTW the world does kind-of revolve around New York.
It is the financial capital of the world.
And more than 10% of Americans live in California.
So boo hoo yourself.
P.S. There are millions of republicians in californa, we are just outnumbered.
Free republic is in california.
Reagan came from California.
Take your california hating self and have a cold one.

They have been getting money for five years. Are they not fortifying and reinforcing possible targets? After a few years, there should be fewer and fewer items that need to be upgraded. If the money stayed the same, pretty soon, dogs would be wearing bullet-proof vests.

The Hildebeast promised 200,000 jobs for NYS and instead we have lost 150,000 jobs. She is quite the clueless wonder. Perfect for the drones of NYS.

Rarely do I think about her -- except when I read about a sting on cops arresting prostitutes.

FYI: Also read somewhere that the 'reducion in funding' accounts to various construction projects that have been completed, and so no part of the next year's budget.

That's arrogance and condescension for you right there.

And if in the future a terrorist attack kills thousands of people in Omaha, in Houston or in Jacksonville, Florida, a lot of New Yorkers, and certainly their sainted NYT, will be saying the "hicks" brought on the attack themselves with their support for Bush, and will refuse to lift a finger to help.

From the article, New York's request emphasized spending on recurring costs — like overtime — was cited as a factor in the relatively low rating the city's application received, one federal official said.
