Structure Fire - 42 Bennett Rd. - Fairview Fire District - 4/14/14 : Fairview firefighters along with City of Poughkeepsie and Roosevelt, were dispatched for a reported structure fire at #42 Bennett Rd shortly after 3:00 AM on April 14th.  DC911 advised initial responding units that they had a working fire as they were able to see the fire from their location.  First arriving units encountered a fully involved~  20 x 40 raised ranch whose roof collapsed as firefighters arrived. Initially, the occupants of the residence were unaccounted for and were believed to be still in the structure. Fortunately, that was later determined to not be the case as the owners were apparently away when the fire broke out. The residence was a total loss and the cause of the fire was investigated by the Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response Fire Investigation Division and Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office. Additional mutual aid was received from the  Pleasant Valley, Hyde Park, Arlington, Highland, LaGrange and West Clinton fire departments.

2014-04-14 - Jeff Foxworthy : Role reversal

Sometimes it just takes a funny and clever redneck to tell it like it really is.  How sad that all of it is true.  Maybe we should send Jeff to Washington.   
 
A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots by Jeff Foxworthy

If you can get arrested 
for hunting or fishing without a 
license, but not for entering 
and remaining in the country illegally, 
you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots. 
 
If you have to get your 
parents’ permission to go on a 
field trip or to take an aspirin 
in school, but not to get an abortion, 
you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. 

 
If you MUST show your 
identification to board an 
airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, 
or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for 
who runs the government, you might live in a nation that was 
founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. 
 
If the government wants to 
prevent stable, law-abiding 
citizens from owning gun magazines 
that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets 
to the crazy new leaders in Egypt, 
you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots. 

 
If, in the nation’s largest 
city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, 
because 24-ounces of a sugary 
drink might make you fat,  
you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots. 

 
If an 80-year-old woman or a 
three-year-old girl who is 
confined to a wheelchair can be 
strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or 
a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, 
you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots. 

 
If your government believes 
that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to 
spend trillions more,  
you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots. 

 
If a seven-year-old boy can be 
thrown out of school for 
saying his teacher is cute, but 
hosting a sexual exploration or 
diversity class in grade school 
is perfectly acceptable, 
you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots. 

 
If hard work and success are 
met with higher taxes and 
more government regulation and 
intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC 
checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones 
you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots. 

 
If the government’s plan for 
getting people back to work 
is to provide incentives for not 
working, by granting 99 weeks of 
unemployment checks, without 
any requirement to prove that gainful employment was diligently 
sought, but couldn’t be found, you might live in a nation that was 
founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. 
 
If you pay your mortgage 
faithfully, denying yourself the 
newest big-screen TV, while 
your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wall-sized do-it-all 
plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt 
when he defaults on his mortgage, 
you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is 
run by idiots. 

 
If being stripped of your 
Constitutional right to defend 
yourself makes you more “safe” 
according to the government, you might live in a nation that was 
founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. 
 
What a country! 
How about we give God a reason 
to continue blessing 
America!

Richmond County Schools - Hitchcock Creek : Rockingham Middle School Principal Julian Carter led a contingent of Richmond County Schools teachers and administrators down Hitchcock Creek on Saturday, April 12, 2014. He was dry for about 3.66 miles of the trip - which, unfortunately for him, was 3.67 miles long. Mr. Carter's kayak capsized just after he freed himself from a log and was with a hundred feet or so from shore. The trip doubled as one part staff development and one part recruiting trip.

2014-04-12 - Secretary of HHS, Sebelius Out : Secretary of HHS, Sebelius Out

If you have not heard, Secretary of HHS has resigned, but changes nothing.

This just proves what has been already said.  Obamacare is a disaster,  has always been a disaster, and will continue to be a disaster until it is REPEALED.

You will hear from President Obama and others that it cannot be REPEALED, but that is not true.  It can and should be REPEALED to help the country and all of us living here.

It cannot be REPEALED as long as Democrats have control of the CONGRESS SENATE.  It has a minor chance in being REPEALED if REPUBLICANS take control of the SENATE and hold control of the HOUSE.  But we all know that President Obama will VETO it if passed by CONGRESS TO REPEAL.  But if 2/3 of the SENATE and HOUSE were for the REPEAL, they can override President Obama’s veto.

So we might have to wait until 2017 to get OBAMACARE REPEALED, that is assuming the new President elected in November 2016 is a REPUBLICAN and CONGRESS is still control by REPUBLICANS.  With that situation, OBAMACARE will be REPEALED.  The Republicans will have to have a plan ready to go when that day comes that will work to help those impacted already by Obamacare, work with insurance companies to get things back on track, and put in a new bill that will reduce healthcare costs, crossing state lines to get insurance, and leave it up to you if you want healthcare insurance or not.  If you do not have insurance, it will just cost you more at doctor visits or emergency care treatment; that is the risk you are taking.
