I agree with you, the New yorkers are showing their true colors and will vote for soetoro regardless. New york is a soetoro welfare gimme state.
People who can afford a second house in this area are NOT Barry supporters. Don't spew bs when you don't know what you're talking about.
We had a huge fire in our area with no weather involvement at all -- the earth around a new house settled and one day just ruptured the gas line underground. During this kind of a storm, with water coursing at great force, this could have happened there, too. Please don't be so fast to condemn these people, many of whom are the "upper working class" who live for their house at the shore and summers with the family. Many laboring families have handed down beachfront lots outside of NYC and in NJ in families for generations since the first immigrant managed to get a lot for $1000 in 1925 or so. Breezy Point isn't the Hamptons.
Unfortunately Albion, this is America, and unless I woke up in Russia today I will have me say in this matter. You have your facts wrong, new york, new jersey and california will always go democrat. The reason is all those little perks the elected officials promise, but fail to deliver. It is like being a heroin addict, one taste does it all. For it is a shame and history has been forgotten by many in those states. Rugged self individualism will get you through most anything in life. We down here in the South are frequently graced with hurricanes far superior than a Cat 1 and or severe storm weather. We all pull ourselves up by our own boot-straps, with the exception of the government womb to tomb 47 %(s). Life is not fair, “Right Jimah????”
