See my post 130 on this thread.
I have no idea what you’re talking about or what it really has to do with the storm.
Your apparent rationalizing doesn’t erase the fact that a few people here have been relentlessly dismissive and mocking in their posts. That doesn’t fare well with God, regardless.
Did you all speak this way on 9/11?
I sure as hell didn’t. No matter how full of liberals NYC is.
call him...not many people out unless he’s open....lots of power out all over..
OBAMA LET THIS HAPPEN BECAUSE HE HATES WHITE PEOPLE!
...if there area normally floods after heavy rain....it’s under water now...
Whaddya talkin' about? He got to order that cool putting green off of the SkyMall catalog on Air Force One (with his platinum government credit card, natch)! If they didn't make him fly back to DC, he might have missed out on it!
But, ask about our humidity! It is so bad that you can shower, dry, go outside and get instantly hit with the heat/humidity and sweat profusely. ("It's not the heat, it's the humidity".
I have been running the A/C continuously since last week. I will probably be wearing t-shirts/shorts (maybe a sweater) until after Christmas or at most on New Year's celebrations.
I've heard of Jersey Shores - Weather Channel showing flooding - ruined first floors. What a mess.
If you are still LOLing, tell me about the “big duck hunting incident”!
Trying to take a balanced approach. Of course, there’s skeptics here. Being a political site, and not a site for weather experts, and strongly skeptical of Obama’s “don’t let a crisis go to waste” regime, it is to be expected. On the one hand, I sympathize with those in the path of Sandy, on the other, I sympathize with these skeptic FReepers, even if some of them get a bit insensitive.
To blame these FReepers, I think is ti blame the wrong people, blame the “don’t let a crisis go to wasters.” This Marxist regime is the root cause of all this hate and discontent. I didn’t think any politico could top Bill Clinton’s lies, this regime is worse.
...guess I could of just sent you this eh?
zoom out you’ll see the airport and river....the towns affected sit in between....zoom out more and you’ll see Giants stadium...
Funny, how, after my helping somebody who is a leftist or liberal, they assume that I am a Democrat.
Not so funny, is, how many see political motivation as the reason, or their definition of “opportunity,” is: How to seize upon *select* facts and misrepresent them in an out-of-context attack on a political opponent.
When my motive is, that I wish to help, it’s just a part of me, and I am thankful, particularly on “bad days,” that I had a chance to help somebody - if lifts my spirits.
I thought we are better than that. I know we should be better than that. But after hearing you defend this behavior (And it was FAR more than just rude) I am no longer think that we can be better than that.
If one wasn't prepared for this storm, it is time to prepare for the next time there is in issue like this - any kind of emergency.
It was overhyped.
It is still being overhyped.
Thanks, Doogle for help on Google!
You are funny! Thanks for the help!
You are funny! Thanks for the help!
yes, Moonachie is right around (north of) MetLife stadium, which you know but a lot of FreePers don’t is an area whose “natural” state is that of a swampy wetland, tideland area, where in the best of times the Hackensack River meanders down to Newark Bay and where in the worst of times Newark Bay moves up the Hackensack River, threatening communities like Moonachie - just a few feet above sea level, a place where most prudent people WOULD NOT live for any reason
the term “people who live in glass houses should not throw stones” has a parallel wise Maxim - people who live where nature does not favor their tranquility get what they paid for - trouble
I am more in favor of buying residents out of our most endangered residential areas than always and forever paying to rescue them, rebuild for them, and trying to keep nature away from them.
If we give nature adequate space of its own instead of thinking we can easily occupy any space we chose, we will not have to artificially create “green spaces” we can all enjoy and we will not keep paying, and paying, and paying over and over just to prove (we don’t prove anything) we can live anywhere we want. We can, but the cost is not always worth it and particularly NOT worth it when too much of the burden falls on majorities who prudently do not live in perenially endangerd places.
In a totally Libertarian society, I could put up with it.
In as much as we all pay for it in this society, I’m agin it. Buy ‘em out, move ‘em out, leave room for the natural ebb and flow of natures waters, and we will all live more peacefully, even durimg the worst weather.
