Just that…Breaking News stories that are of interest……

Maloney will not run for the US Senate…….

Making a smart choice, Carolyn Maloney has taken herself out of the race for the US Senate from New York ( doing exactly the same thing as Carolyn McCarthy, in staying in a safe House seat ). She leaves Kristen Gillibrand, the rookie Senator, with clear sailing for the democratic nomination, and the seat for the full six years. Senior Senator Schumer has to be happy. He has gotten his way, and is done laboring behind the last New York junior senator,  Hillary Clinton, who stole almost all of his thunder for the past few years……..The voters of New York City will not really be happy……but what the heck?

Bloomberg in trouble?……

There is a story brewing in New York City…….It seems that the Bloomberg Administration, from 2002 to 2006, sent city money to ‘politically connected ‘ non-profit ( sorry but, Jewish ) organizations. The amount of money was over a million dollars. The funds were under the Mayors sole power. Does this story have legs?

'Cash for Clunkers' program may have run out of 'CASH' in a week……

That’s right folks…………the program …….which is funded with a billion dollars fro rebates fro replacing old gas inefficient cars with new  more deficient ones  will probably shut down tonight.   Federal officials have been swamped with paper work, and are  afraid that all the applications in the pipeline  (which will take a while to process) will cash out the week long program………
