“It seems like every time you turn around, somebody’s pounding a garage sale sign at the top of the street,” says Bob Fritts, owner of Fritts Financial Services in Concord Township. “Consumer spending is way down. People are looking to raise additional funds to make ends meet. Especially with the unemployment rate rising close to 10 percent, it makes it more valuable to clean out your junk.”

Nationwide, garage sale listings on online advertiser Craigslist have increased 80 percent this year, company officials said.

Chrissy Walters, a teacher at Edison Elementary School in Willoughby, says she holds a garage sale each year at the Willowick home of her mother, Jan Komar. This year, things were hopping much earlier than usual.

“We opened at 9, but our first person showed up at 8:30,” Walters says. “I feel like we’ve been busier than in past years, which is good, because we have a lot of junk to get rid of. We can always use the extra money. My husband says I have to get rid of my old clothes before I get more.”

Walters’ customers snapped up items like a cot for $5 that had been priced at $10 and a porch swing for $5.

“We’re proud garage salers,” Komar says with a laugh.

Diane Mayer, another Willowick resident, was at the East 327th Street sale shopping with her 11 week old morkie dog named Daisy May happily parked in her arms.

“I like going to garage sales,” Mayer says. “I like finding old cookbooks, and it’s fun. We just had a garage sale, and people were talking about the economy.”

Secondhand stores like Plato’s Closet in Mentor also are thriving.

“A lot of people are coming in to sell their clothes for gas money,” Plato’s Closet manager Sam Urankar says.

“And a lot of people are coming here to buy back to school clothes, because they can get brand name stuff for $6 to $15, versus like $60 or more at the mall.”

short classic uggs G train riders already feeling the squeeze of L tunnel shutdown

ugg botts G train riders already feeling the squeeze of L tunnel shutdown

The MTA is still more than a year away from the start of tunnel repairs that will halt L train service to and from Manhattan, disrupting the routines of more than 200,000 people every day. But preparations for the shutdown already are inconveniencing riders on another line. Transit reporter Jose Martinez takes a look.

When the L train stops running next year between Brooklyn and Manhattan, many of that line’s refugees in Brooklyn will likely migrate to the G train.

The prep work for their arrival at the Court Square station where riders on the G train can transfer to the E, M and 7 lines has turned the rush hour into a smush hour.

“Oh it’s a mess, a mess. I’ve been down there, it’s just like everybody’s just in one huge circle. And I’m in this box like this. I gotta be stood up like this,” said one subway rider.

That’s because the MTA is adding three stairways to the G train platform in anticipation of the influx of riders from the L line.

The construction is making for cramped conditions on the platform and in the passageway linking to other parts of the sprawling subway complex.

“I rush to go to work. But it’s time consuming, for that reason, because of the tight squeeze,” said one subway rider.

“Sometimes I bump into the crowds and I don’t feel comfortable because then I have to transfer and it’s going to make my commute longer,” noted another rider.

As part of the work, two existing staircases are being widened to make them comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

It’s all creating a squeeze during the peak hours even with the MTA’s addition of platform conductors trying to move everyone along.

“It’s like really crowded, it’s hard to like get through. Sometimes you feel uncomfortable,” said one subway rider.

“It’s crazy, a lot of pushing and shoving. G train is crazy,” said another rider.

It’s all a preview of things to come in April of next year when repairs begin on the L train tunnel beneath the East River, and service to and from Manhattan is halted.

Between my deer fall in November and Husband Larry’s flu and pneumonia happenings, we are trending towards a “War and Peace” style book of experiences. This year’s flu seems to have a mind of its own so please take it seriously if you touch base with it. It is more than just a conversation piece and can become a major player in your health.

We do need to keep our strength up for these cold days and also keep that cabin fever at bay so as was mentioned in the past, comfort food pays a big part in keeping us going. After we have eaten our healthy oatmeal and our hot soup, we need another comfort food project and that could be homemade chili. I did not realize how serious and involved chili can become. Most of us probably have not become too adventurous in trying new kinds and stick with the kind we grew up with.

Back in the day when I was growing up the few people who made chili called it “chili con carne” and that made it sound kind of foreign and probably hard to make. Little did we know that “con carne” translated to “with beef.” We also did not know how big the world of chili was and we were just seeing the tip of the ice “chili” berg.

You can have chili that is not homemade one way to get it is in the canned food section. There really is not a big selection with our local Hormel chili being the main player and then it’s a choice of beans, no beans and low sodium. Restaurants and food places also offer chili and Wendy’s has had it available for many years. In fact, there are many recipes for “Copycat Wendy’s Chili.” The reviews say it is easy and very close to original.

The big thing that I remember the most about chili is the big debate about whether or not proper chili has beans or not. Once that issue is beaten into place and the group that says beans are essential has to decide what kind of beans are the correct kinds of beans. It could be pinto, black or kidney beans to name a few of the top contenders. I also heard a few whispers that some people added diced celery!

The next thing I remember is that somehow or other chicken broke through the glass ceiling of chili meat and chicken chili and white chili entered the scene. This was very hard for me to accept as a true chili but little did I know that I was still living in a sheltered world and had so much more to learn about chili.

I started to notice that one did not just eat the chili as it was in the bowl, one had to decide if it needed grated cheese, sour cream, diced raw onions or some form of chips for toppings. That certainly did add interest to the chili taste but had to add a few steps to serving.

The chili world really popped open when I learned that not everyone just fried the ground hamburger. Oh my no! One had to decide if a beef chuck or another beef cut was the proper form to use for the meat. The next decision was if it was going to be ground, was it a course or very fine grind. Wait, I hear some voices saying, “never ever grind, you must cut in pieces.” Once this has been figured out, the fry or not to fry step enters the picture. It also turns out that beef is not the total king of chili as other forms such as the chicken worked its way into the recipe. The next thing we know, things like venison, rabbit and even rattlesnake are fair game.

The real eye opener was that regional chilis each have their own ballgame. Texas chili and Cincinnati chili are two of the big players and both have devoted and loyal fans. From what I could find out, Cincinnati chili has a thinner consistency, cinnamon, cocoa, allspice and Worcestershire sauce in their list of ingredients. Its toppings include chopped onion, shredded cheddar cheese, refried beans, kidney beans and must have crushed oyster crackers. All of this is served over spaghetti. Oh, I almost forgot; a side order of hot dogs is also needed. Texas chili is usually made with chuck chunks and has garlic, oregano, cayenne pepper, paprika, chili powder, cumin and cornmeal. No tomatoes or beans are said to cross the lips of Texas chili eaters. Also remember among all of this there is vegetarian chili.

As you can see, it is a very flexible chili world and surprising things like chocolate find its way in. After we have eaten our healthy oatmeal and our hot soup, we need another comfort food project and that could be homemade chili. I did not realize how serious and involved chili can become. Most of us probably have not become too adventurous in trying new kinds and stick with the kind we grew up with.

Back in the day when I was growing up the few people who made chili called it “chili con carne” and that made it sound kind of foreign and probably hard to make.

ugg boots classic tall Gifts for New Jersey college students

ugg classic short boot chestnut Gifts for New Jersey college students

Techie gifts like an e reader or an iPad, brand name boots, tickets to a sporting event or just some cold, hard cash, according to an informal poll of about 30 college students taken earlier this week by student reporters in a Feature Writing class at Kean University in Union.

Ugg boots topped the brand name gift list on the New Jersey campus.

Designer gifts mentioned were Coach handbags and Michael Kors pumps. The Wii was also a choice as were Wii games. Amy Dombro, sophomore psychology major, said she hopes to get the Glee Karaoke for Wii.

friends and I watch Glee every Tuesday and we sing along, said Dombro. with this, at least we know the right lyrics. Deyna Jeckyll, a senior, said she is hoping for a trendy new bag that is also sensible. “I’m asking for a cross body bag, she said. I need to condense my purse into a smaller bag, rather than having to carry a wristlet around my wrist, it is so much easier just to have a wristlet size bag across my body. Plus they are cute!”

Many students were surprisingly practical, asking for gifts that could advance their careers or help them complete college.

“I would probably want a camera with a wide lens since I’m taking photography in the spring,” said Amber Brown, a junior.

Music student Mike Cohen said he is asking for a new guitar. graduating this year and I want to go into music professionally so I going to have to get some real professional equipment that works.

Shawn Albanese, a junior majoring in Secondary Education, said he wants a Kindle e reader where he can store many of his textbooks via downloads.

“I hope I get a Kindle because it’s nice not to have to lug a number of heavy textbooks around, Albanese said. you need is the touch of your finger and the book instantly appears right in front of you.”

And student Anthony Viera, who is Kean freshman class president, said a gas card is on his list gas is so expensive.

For those who want to give techie gift, students mentioned Mac laptops and the Blackberry. But apparently the techie gift this year is the iPad, said 19 year old Chris Riva.

“iPad is the hottest thing next to iPod, said the college sophomore “Laptops are not as popular anymore. It’s more about the iPad.”

When in doubt, the college kids said give money.

“It’s just easier. If I have it, I can spend it on whatever I want. I’d probably get clothes or sneakers,” said freshman Robert Rivera.

Of course, in a perfect world where money is no object, the gift choices change.

Dan Manuapelli, 23, said in an ideal world, he would want season tickets to the Yankees, I can hopefully see Derek Jeter get his 3,000th hit.”

For Steve Mendoza, a senior majoring in Media and Film, the dream gift now would be for someone to pay off all my school loans because having debt is terrible.”

Others want to travel. “I would love to go on vacation outside the country because my friends are always going to these great places and I’d love to have that experience,” said Vanessa Tobar, freshman majoring in Psychology.

Jake Clinebell, a junior, said he like to go to Disneyworld. want a night in that castle, he said.

But some gifts even money can buy. Sean Rella, 24, said his perfect Christmas gift this year would be a letter of acceptance from Seton Hall Law School.

Several students said they were already receiving their gifts everyday the chance to go to college. don’t really want anything from my mom because she helps me out all year long with my tuition,” said student Heather Pasco.

And Uhunoma Woghiren, a 28 year old student, said his favorite gift is to give to others. He said he intends to visit the Salvation Army and donate some clothes to the needy.

“Coming from a less privileged background, I know what it means not to have any thing as a gift during this period of festivities, he said. giving to this group of individuals will make me feel good.”

uggs size 6 General welfare spending out of control in United States

classic tall black ugg boots General welfare spending out of control in United States

According to deficit forecasts in President Barack Obama’s latest budget, the national debt will surpass $20 trillion by 2016. If this occurs (and it is almost certain to occur), then Obama will add more to the national debt during his presidency than all prior presidents combined, despite collecting projected record high tax receipts each year of his last term in office.

Obviously, there is a spending problem in Washington, and the reason for it is no mystery. The largest expenditure in Obama’s budget and the largest federal outlay in every budget since 1970 is an expense item labeled “payments for individuals,” which includes spending on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment benefits, disability payments and other federal welfare subsidies. These payments comprised 65 percent of all federal spending in 2012 and are expected to grow to 70 percent in 2016. (By contrast, national defense spending was 19 percent of the federal budget in 2012 and will decrease to only 14 percent in 2016.)

The federal government has essentially become a wealth redistribution center, for it collects enormous sums of money through taxation ($2.45 trillion total in 2012) and then distributes this money to select people in countless “payments for individuals” ($2.3 trillion spent in 2012). The leftover money isn’t nearly enough to pay for the interest on the national debt, not to mention the other government functions that must also be funded, such as national defense. So the federal government borrows more and more money by the day just to keep operating.

This level of spending and borrowing simply cannot be sustained, according to Obama’s Treasury secretary, Tim Geithner. Sitting before the Senate Budget Committee last year to discuss Obama’s 2013 budget, Geithner confessed that the federal government’s level of social welfare spending could not endure for long. He said, “Even if Congress were to enact this budget, we would be left with in the outer decades as millions of Americans retire what are still unsustainable commitments in Medicare and Medicaid.”

These welfare commitments are not just unsustainable; they are also unconstitutional, for the Constitution grants no power to the federal government to redistribute national wealth. James Madison explained that “the government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.”

In spite of the Constitution’s limits, federal welfare spending began in earnest in the 1930s with President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal programs. This is not what our Founders intended.

James Madison assured during the ratification debates in 1787 88 that the “general welfare” reference in the Constitution was never meant to stand alone as a broad grant of federal power to spend at will. He explained in The Federalist No. 41 that it was an “absurdity” to suggest that Congress’ spending powers were unlimited by the “general welfare” clause when the Constitution identified in the very same sentence “not even separated by a longer pause than a semicolon” the specific,
uggs size 6 General welfare spending out of control in United States
narrow powers of the federal government. He stated, “Nothing is more natural or common than first to use a general phrase, and then to explain or qualify it by a recital of particulars.” Congress’ ability to spend was to be confined by the more specific enumerated powers that immediately followed the “general welfare” clause.

As a congressman, Madison continued to stress the Constitution’s limitations on federal spending, writing in 1792, “If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the general welfare, the government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions.”

He later said, “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which grants a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”

Similarly, Thomas Jefferson insisted that elected representatives had no power under the Constitution “to do anything they please to provide for the general welfare.” The reason for this limitation was clear, for he explained that “giving a distinct and independent power [to Congress] to do any act they please, which might be for the good of the Union, would render all the preceding and subsequent enumerations of power completely useless. It would reduce the whole instrument to a single phrase.”

For some time, the Supreme Court shared this understanding of the Constitution’s limits on federal spending, ruling that Congress could only spend money in support of the Constitution’s enumerated powers. For example, in Carter v. And since that time, politicians peddling in “payments for individuals” have expanded federal social welfare programs without regard for their sustainability or their actual constitutionality and without any real accountability.

So it should come as no surprise that President Obama a long time advocate for “redistributive change” in America would ignore his Treasury secretary’s warning about our nation’s dangerous fiscal course and instead accelerate federal welfare spending in his 2014 budget. Obama has proven to be just another pandering politician, eager to satisfy the fleeting wants of the people today, no matter what the cost may be tomorrow. Naval War College and the University of Virginia School of Law, he is a veteran of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and has worked as an analyst at the Office of Naval Intelligence and the Defense Intelligence Agency.
