Harry Reid said the other day that if you are against government run healthcare you would have been pro-slavery.
Harry Reid is an Idiot and he is grasping at straws because the Government Run Healthcare Bill is going down in flames!!!

Some talking moronic head of the media cesspool was lamenting today that the recent demise of the Tiger Woods mystique is just another example of another fallen role model looked up to by millions of misguided children. The idiot went on to introduce some whacked out psychiatrist to explain how parents can help children cope with this tragic event. Stay tuned for a new drug that parents can give children to ease the pain when role models behave badly.
However, I have the perfect remedy for our disappointed children. How about we start admiring REAL ROLE MODELS! The media should stop glorifying these high priced morally deficient, self absorbed celebrities and start recognizing true heroes and positive role models.
Let us start teaching our children that true role models are ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Let’s praise individuals that sacrifice their time, resources and personal safety for the benefit of others. Let’s start glorifying, police officers, firemen, military personnel, teachers, doctors, philanthropists, scientist, devoted parents, civic-minded individuals ect ect ect.
Thanks to our parasitic media, there is no shortage of negative role models for our children in today’s society. Children and adolescents imitate the actions and appearance of video, movie, and television stars. However, all this exposure to negative behavior is one sided because today’s media is not promoting family values and modeling pro-social behavior for children. Many parents would cringe to think their daughters would want to imitate some of today’s trendy appearances and behaviors exhibited by Paris Hilton, Britney Spears or the bimbo du jour.
While children do look to the media for role models, PARENTS still have a tremendous amount of influence in their children’s lives and should exert that power on a daily basis. To increase their influence, parents need to limit the amount of time kids spend watching the boob tube and videos and increase the time children spend with them. Children are more likely to imitate parents if parents spend time with them. In addition, parents should be very intentional about what they role model for their children.
Tell our children that Tiger Woods is an idiot and teach them about Major General Leonard Wood!
Major General Leonard Wood was an aggressive and energetic soldier who was instrumental in transforming the U.S. Army into a modern fighting force. He was born on 9 October 1860, in Winchester, New Hampshire. Following his father’s lead, he entered Harvard Medical School in 1880. He graduated from the school in 1883.

Eric Ulrich, the tri-sexual councilman from Howard Beach is sponsoring what he calls a “tripartisan” bill that would ultimately strangle small business owners in this already suffocating economy. Eric Ulbitch once again proves that his political expediency is more important than the future of this great city. Eric Ulrich wants to break the backbone of our economy by imposing yet another financial burden on small businesses.
Eric Ulrich is so out of touch with reality because he has no idea what it means to work. At twenty something years old he has never had a real job and he stepped in political dog shit by winning a special election that a bunch of morons on the ballot.
Now my fellow neighbors in Howard Beach have to suffer through the next 4 years as this insufferable wet behind the ears egomaniac destroys our community, small business owners and our great city.

Ulrich Pens Piece Supporting Employer Paid Sick-leave Legislation
Posted by: The Editors in Untagged on Dec 11, 2009
Republican Councilman Eric Ulrich is sponsoring a bill that would make paid sick days a basic workplace standard for all employers - called the Paid Sick Time Act. Here's a link to one of the bills strongest supporters - the Working Families Party...
New York City’s campaign to make paid sick days a basic workplace standard continues to gain steam. In an op-ed in yesterday’s Daily News, Councilmember Eric Ulrich (R-Queens) calls paid sick days “tripartisan” legislation that “unites New Yorkers from all walks of life.”

Bill to help out ill workers is good for everyone’s health
By Eric Ulrich
As local and national public health officials work overtime to stop the spread of swine flu, they have made sure to highlight common sense measures the public can take to do its part. Almost always, near the top of the list is simply avoiding people you might infect when you are sick: staying home from work and keeping sick children out of school.
But for nearly half of all working New Yorkers, that common sense suggestion may not be an option. A report from the Community Service Society and A Better Balance estimates that 48% of New Yorkers - more than 1.65 million people - have no paid sick days where they work. Low-income New Yorkers suffer the most; fully two-thirds (66%) cannot take a paid day off when they get sick. Nor can an astounding 72% of Latino low wage workers.
For these working families, the next cold or flu means a tough choice between their health (and the health of their co-workers) and the paycheck they need to make ends meet.
...the piece goes on...
Worse, the report suggests that access to paid sick days is on the decline. As recently as 2004, 69% of “near-poor” workers - those just above the poverty line ($22,050 for a family of four) - had paid sick leave where they worked. Today, just 33% of near-poor workers report having paid sick days. It appears that the recession is not only making jobs harder to find; the jobs that do exist are increasingly less likely to provide adequate benefits.
That thousands of working families live in fear that getting sick could be financially ruinous is troubling enough. But the consequences of lacking paid sick days may extend far beyond individual workers and their families.
New York City has sensibly made it a policy to close public schools only as a last resort in the event of a swine flu outbreak. But key to the success of the city’s swine flu plan is the ability of parents to follow the city’s own advice by keeping flu-stricken children at home where they cannot infect their classmates and teachers.
For many working parents, that plan may sound doomed to fail. According to the report, 54% of public school parents (and 65% of low-income public school parents) lack paid sick days where they work. Unsurprisingly, 30% of low-income parents report having sent a sick child to school.
There is also evidence that the lack of paid sick days may even be contributing to our broken health care system, where preventable illnesses go untreated and the underserved choke our emergency rooms and hospitals.
Twenty-two percent of low-income workers who have health insurance report visiting an emergency room simply because they could not take time off work for a doctor’s appointment.
The statistics are depressing, but the city can and should take action. The Paid Sick Time bill currently under consideration by the City Council would allow all working New Yorkers to earn paid sick leave on the job. With 39 Council co-sponsors, the bipartisan bill is a common sense way to help working families and protect the public health. (Actually, as a major priority of the progressive Working Families Party, it’s a tripartisan bill.)
New York would not be the first city to implement a universal paid sick days law. San Francisco and Washington have made paid sick leave a basic workplace standard, and more than 15 states are considering similar measures.
It is an idea that unites New Yorkers from all walks of life - from single parents to labor leaders and business groups, liberals and conservatives, advocates for women and advocates for family values. It is time to put paid sick days at the top of the agenda.
...the legislation, specifically, would force most employers to offer 72 hours of paid sick leave - that's nearly two weeks of full compensation. And the definition of "being sick" includes a variety of circumstances, many of which have nothing to do with employee illness. Here's a few specifics of the bill in question...
The legislation would ensure that employers allow a certain amount of temporary time off from work to take care of their own health needs or the health needs of members of their families or to deal with health and safety issues arising from domestic or sexual violence.
Subdivision c of section 22-507 would provide for the accrual of paid sick time. Paragraph one of such subdivision would declare that all employees have the right to paid sick time as provided in this section. Paragraph (2) of such subdivision would require that all employers provide a minimum of one hour of paid sick time for every thirty hours worked by an employee. Under this provision, employers would not be required to provide more than seventy-two hours of sick time for an employee in a calendar year.
The legislation would benefit society by providing time for domestic violence victims to go to court or to relocate to safety and would allow such victims to protect themselves.
...supporters of the bill, like Mr. Ulrich and the Left-wing, union-based Working Families Party, claim that it would have a positive effect on the health of NYC overall. The main example they cite is that because parents have no paid sick days, they are forced to send their sick children to school in direct conflict to good public health policy and the recommendations of the Department of Education. If these workers had paid sick days, they could stay home and take care of their sick kids and avoid the risk of infecting other children, which could spread the illness widely.
Oddly, there is a strong reference to "domestic violence" cases and "domestic partners" being covered, which seems misplaced in a bill to protect sick workers. There are many "good" reasons why a worker could miss time on the job. Why specifically cite just illness and domestic violence in this bill? It seems that there is the Pandora's box being opened with this legislation, as many interest groups will line up claiming that employers should offer "sick time" for a number of difficult situations for employees - all potentially deserving of paid time off.
As well, the entire burden of this "tripartisan" piece of legislation, as stated by Councilmember Ulrich, will fall on employers. If this is such a good idea, why not have workers themselves pay into the system to fund this new employment benefit? When NYC is already the one of the most un-competitive places to be an employer, how can it make sense for the Council to pass another unfunded employment mandate on the business community?
What NYC needs now are jobs. Additional mandated employee benefits, even if they can be argued as beneficial to the city at-large, will do nothing to increase employment in NYC and, to the contrary, this measure forces employers to think long and hard about adding additional workers to their rolls.
Lastly, this position seems odd for a self-proclaimed "conservative" to writing about in the Daily News. If the average worker and employer can't count on Republican representatives to fight for their concerns, who do they have to turn to? In many ways, this piece of legislation could have been just as easily sponsored by Councilmember Leticia James as the GOP's Ulrich. Do UE readers think this is the direction the Republican Party should be going?

Looks like Bob Holden during his peeping tom walk, spotted two Middle Eastern men walking over the Middle Village pedestrian overpass and automatically called the police because he knew they were terrorists!
Ladies and gentleman, I believe we have a hero living in Middle Village! According to Super Bob, he single handedly stopped a major terrorists plot! When is Obama going to send Bob Holden to go find Osama Bin Laden!
Bob Holden is a master at racial profiling and can be observed at JFK Airport on all fours sniffing people’s luggage looking for contraband. We need more maniacs like Bob Holden walking the street and harassing Middle Eastern men walking over the pedestrian bridges to stop the bombings in Middle Village!
Batty Bob Holden and his sidekick Douche Doocey, the dynamic duo of stupidity should be commended for saving Gotham City from Pink elephants, little green men and Christina Wilkinson!
Good job Bob!
Here is the hysterical article printed in this edition of the Juniper Fairy Tale
On Monday November 16th while taking his usual 45 minute morning walk around the community, JPCA president Bob Holden noticed two suspicious looking men walking toward Middle Village at the pedestrian overpass over the Long Island Railroad from the Rego Park side. What made the men stand out was the fact that they appeared to be walking at a very slow pace while looking behind and from side to side. Both were carrying large backpacks and both appeared to be of Middle Eastern descent. (Now we know Mr. Obama and all of the overly sensitive politically correct pundits would not want us to write that however the 911 operator asked for a description of the men.)
As Holden walked past the men and onto the bridge the two stopped in the middle with one man looking eastbound and the other westbound as the speeding commuter trains zoomed by at 80 mph.
Holden called 911 to report suspicious looking men hanging around the overpass. How many citizens would even do that? We hope that most would but JPCA members are constantly reminded to be alert. After the 911 call and a call to the Community Affairs office of the 104th Precinct, Holden doubled back to the bridge about 10 minutes later and witnessed the same men standing looking eastbound at two trains. By then the men observed Holden hanging around on the Middle Village side so Bob called for backup as to not make the men suspicious. JPCA secretary Bob Doocey lives a block away and offered to walk to the site and keep an eye on the men until the police arrived.
About 10 minutes later Doocey arrived with no men in sight and no police. About 5 minutes later a van with two officers from the 104th Precinct School Safety squad drove up to the scene. Doocey said the men probably walked down to the other side of the bridge. One officer responded to him that because it was the area of another precinct, “we don’t go there.”
It’s amazing how fast we forget the memories and threats of 9/11/2001. With the terrorist trials coming to New York City it doesn’t seem like we are really ready. God help us all.

the president spent another couple of million taxpayer dollars on a party.
I guess the threat of a double dip recession and 10% unemployment isn't going to deter Barack Obama from having a good time.

Can you imagine that with all the people living in Queens, NY1 chooses the two biggest idiots walking our streets. NY1 asked Robert “I wet my pants” Doocey and Lorraine “the wicked witch” Sciulli of the Juniper Park civic Association to opine about Muslims living here in NYC.
In a nutshell, the demented minds under the leadership of Bob Holden feel that we should box up all Muslims and ship them out of the country. Lorraine Scungilli feels that anyone who walks around covered from head to toe is scary while Looney Doocey thinks that if you are Muslim you should be considered a terrorist and dangerous.
This is just another example of the moronic idiocy exhibited by the Juniper Park Civic Association’s brotherhood of hate. Under the chicken wing of Bob Holden their jingoist xenophobic rhetoric would be laughable if they weren’t so vocal and given exposure by the media who love to interview freak shows.
However, NY1 did a great job choosing these two to bolster their story of anti-Muslim sentiment here in NYC.
I can’t wait for the next Robert Doocey and Lorraine Sciulli opinion editorial on the need for clubbing baby seals to save Juniper Park from being polluted by seal shit.
Archie Bunker Doocey and Edith Bunker Sciulli should shut their ignorant mouths and stay home watching re-runs of Gilligan’s Island

Once again President Barack Hussein Obama and his leftist advisors have revealed that they are clueless when it comes to foreign policy and the use of our military. In an uncomfortable speech last night, Obama says he will commit 30,000 troops but has crippled their efforts by adding the caveat that he will remove troops in January 2012.
You cannot put an exit time and date when it comes to war. The exit time comes when the mission is complete. By offering a firm exit strategy you are telling our enemies to lay low and wait for us to leave so you can resume your insurgence. It also sends a message to our allies that under this president we no longer posses the intestinal fortitude to complete our objective and protect Americans.
Our national security depends on creating the right strategy and winning the war in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, we have a President in office that wants to do the right thing for himself and political career and could care less what is best for America.
