This is hysterical. Jimmy Kimmel sent people out onto the street to ask them what they thought of the State of the Union address. The day before it happened. The fact that they couldn't possibly have heard/seen it didn't stop people from talking about it.

What's shocking to me is that the guy's district is basically Staten Island, right next to New Jersey and Philly. Basically right in the middle of a liberal area.

Northern New York I would have expected...

"The urban areas are liberal and the rural are conservative."

I know that. It was an attempt at a joke, as if the real WTF was a Republican from NY. Although maybe you got it and it's me who's not picking up on that.....

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) threatens a NY1 reporter after he is asked about campaign corruption during a post-SOTU interview.

"Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I'll throw you off this f***ing balcony," Grimm said, according to NY1.

"It's a valid question," Michael Scotto, the reporter, told Grimm.

"No, no, you’re not man enough, you’re not man enough. I’ll break you in half. Like a boy," Grimm responded. ---------------

WTF? New York has a Republican Congressman?

A candidate for Orlando City Council has a rap sheet that includes 21 arrests, records show.

Regina Hill, 48, said she has no plans to drop her political campaign for a council seat, despite a history of arrests for drug offenses, multiple DUIs and other charges. In fact, she said her checkered past makes her more qualified to represent District 5, which still struggles with high levels of crime, unemployment and homelessness.

"There is no better leader to be the voice of the people of District 5, because I've walked in their shoes," Hill said. "I've overcome those obstacles and I know what they go through."

Florida Department of Law Enforcement records show that Hill began racking up arrests a week after she turned 18 in 1983. She was last arrested in 2009, on a contempt of court charge.

During that 26-year span, she was charged with an array of offenses. In 1989, at age 23, she was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell. Records show she received a four-month jail sentence and three years probation, with credit for time already served. Hill also had six arrests for driving under the influence between 1997 and 2006.

Other arrests include passing bad checks in 1994, to which she pleaded no contest and was ordered to pay restitution; and marijuana possession in 2005, to which she pleaded no contest and was ordered to perform community service.

Florida is one of three states that strips those with felony convictions of the right to vote, serve on juries — or hold public office. Most of the charges Hill faced were misdemeanors, but two were felonies: the cocaine conviction and a 1995 fraud arrest for using a false name to obtain a driver's license.

State records show that Hill applied to have her civil rights restored, and the request was granted in 2008 by the Florida Parole Commission's Office of Executive Clemency. That cleared the way for her current City Council campaign.

Apparently they have a different attitude towards this sort of thing in France. I believe here we call it a "hostage situation".

As farm tires were rolled in to block the doorway, two Goodyear managers were trapped in a conference room with angry French workers who were demanding more money in exchange for the inevitable loss of their jobs. The morning "meeting" dragged on into the night, and the union said it was settling in for the long haul — with the two executives still captive inside.

Goodyear has tried to shutter the plant in Amiens for five years without success. Its latest attempt was met Monday with a "boss-napping" — a French negotiating tactic that had largely faded away after the height of the economic crisis in 2009.

"Clearly it was no longer possible to keep fighting for our jobs," Mickael Wamen, the union president, told LCI television. "So we decided to change tactics and fight for the largest compensation possible."

In exchange for freeing the bosses, they're demanding an 80,000-euro ($108,000) severance package plus 2,500 euros ($3,400) for each year worked.
