SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. - November 1, 2012 -- The Fun Town Pier in Seaside Heights is now a pile of twisted metal and broken rides lying on the beach as waves lap over it.

It's one of two piers destroyed in hurricane Sandy where the iconic Ferris wheels seem to be the only thing left standing.

It's hard to conceive of how long that could take. Seaside Heights and nearby towns are under martial law.

Police state? A friend of mine in NJ tells me there are murders and looting going on in Atlantic City and other hard hit places like crazy. She was wondering why they hadn’t instituted martial law yet.

Thanks for the backup. Hannity made quite a case for how quickly things are descending into chaos there too.

They (White House insiders) were celebrating the approach of Sandy in Chicago from what I hear and preparing to somehow use it against Mitt Romney, from what I heard.

These people are not only sick with their thinking but continue to forget Obama and NOT Romney is the one in power.

I think they’ve lied so much and are in so much denial that they now believe that Obama is the challenger.

I hate to say this but it may get uglier than Katrina (if it’s not already reached that point).

There are several links. I think I saw it originally posted here in FR. Google: WHITE HOUSE INSIDER: Obama Campaign Declares: “Gonna Shove This Storm Up Romney’s ___

You’ll find several links to the story

I heard an Obama commercial exactly like that. Where they were trying to make it sound like Romney has been in charge for the last 4 years, and Obama is going to come in and save the day. It was amazing.

His whole campaign has been like that. He’s distancing himself from his own Presidency.

I just saw a new ad (not sure if it’s the same as you saw) and I had to check the date of the YouTube video at the bottom. In the ad he was running against George Bush’s economy. The date was Nov. 2012.

If this man wins, we’re doomed.

I followed the link and it was a post on a blog. Has a conservative publication like the WSJ reported on this?

I don't know which link you refer to. I've posted a few things in this thread. What was I talking about? Gas lines in Jersey? Benghazi? Sandy?

ok, I found out what you were talking about. Actually I did not provide you with a link because there are so many to choose from.

Gas lines in Jersey?
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Gas shortages?

What’s going on here? Is this merely local shortages due to power issues?

How wide spread is the power outage? Is the power outage range so wide that functioning gas stations are not within reach?

Ok, Here are some answers:

http://www.cnbc.com/id/49642174

The problem is not gasoline supplies, but the ability to distribute it, especially from the critical terminal area around Linden, N.J., which lost power and was hit by storm surge. An estimated 75 percent or more of the gas stations in New Jersey were closed either because they had no gasoline, no power or both, said Sal Risalvato, executive director of the N.J. Gasoline, Convenience, Automotive Association. His organization represents about 1,000 gasoline stations in N.J.

“What I’m seeing is there’s a combination of problems. Power is at the root of it. That means gasoline that is already in inventory, already refined in those big tanks you see along the side of the turnpike, they can‘t get that gasoline into the delivery trucks without power,” said Risalvato.

Sorry. I can’t find a reliable source.

Learned today that my house is finished. Packing what is left, and then?

So sorry for the loss of your home. Come to Florida....no State income tax, Republican governor, updated hurricane building codes and there's always room for more conservatives :)

Seriously though, please know our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you deal with this tragedy.
