Yahoo ^

Posted on 11/07/2012 11:41:48 AM PST by TigerClaws

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A wintry storm dropped snow on the U.S. Northeast on Wednesday and threatened to bring dangerous winds and flooding to a region still climbing out from the devastation of Superstorm Sandy. The nor'easter storm added misery to thousands of people whose homes were destroyed by Sandy, which killed 120 people when it smashed ashore on October 29 in the New York-New Jersey area, swallowing entire neighborhoods with rising seawater and blowing homes from their foundations.

Really. I’m all out of compassion. I could give a hoot in hell what happens to NYC, NJ LA, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, etc.

As long as those “folks” keep voting for liberal, welfare state politicians to lead them, they get what they deserve.

The MSM paints obama as a savior to the hurricane victims...
The MSM paints Bush as a villain to the hurricane victims... (Katrina)

Name 3 three things obama did better?

Nada.

Better be careful, I expressed similar thoughts on another thread and got called everything but a white man (as well as having death wished on me).

Is this how conservatives think? I know you are pissed off as well as the rest of us. I'm not asking for your money or pity but please stop making a mockery of someone supposedly being a conservative.

Photo ops. MSM coverage. He looked caring. He faked non partisanship with Christie.

Chris Matthews (sadly) was right. Storm helped Obama. Romney was several points ahead when it hit.

Now, might not have been decisive. But race would have been closer.

I agree. We’re dealing with intractable people who demand that their government loot and pillage the rest of us. It’s the law of the jungle.

The logical conclusion when dealing with an implacable enemy is that someone is going to die. I prefer it be them.

I'm conservative but I don't think I should do another thing for a bunch of whiners - you had time to get prepared days and days. People in the NE did nothing just like those in NOLA but cried that big government should help them!

I say again, too bad, you've already taken my taxes to "help" with tragedies, they are helping, I guess. At least Obama did enough so that you all made it to the polls to reelect him.

I'm from the Midwest where we face tornados and floods all of the time. How many times did people from the NE hop in their cars or trucks to come out to the Midwest to help us dig our and rebuild, actually I can tell you before you scratch your head wondering -NEVER!

Not to worry, not to worry, Barry will take care of them the same way he did for the first storm.
He and Christie are rolling up there sleeves now.
That's what we have president Obama for, governor Christie for and even mayor Bloomers for.

Let me tell you something else. I make my living traveling these United States. I’ve been to NYC area more times than I care to think about. It’s a sh*t hole. I used to start getting pissed by the time I got to Erie, on the way east.

The only upside to the flooding is perhaps the ever-present smell of stale urine will be washed away for a week or two.

This adequately describes my feelings:

“Then (not having found even 10 righteous people in the city), they commanded Lot to gather his family and leave. As they made their escape, one angel commanded Lot to “look not behind thee”.[Genesis 19:17] However, as Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed with brimstone and fire from the LORD, Lot’s wife looked back at the city, and she became a pillar of salt.[Genesis 19:23-26]”

Right After they try to drive their electric cars w/out electricity. I guess they think I'm prepared to gi e them some of my gas, natural gas or coal for fuel.

They're all so wedded to Global Warming so they should thank Mother Earth for easing the "cooling trend."

I hate to say it, but there might now have to be both conservative and liberal relief organizations, because I simply will not donate anything that isn’t aimed toward the people that I would want to help, and away from the one’s that deserve to suffer. It’s sad that I feel that way, but there it is. Also, some time ago, I decided to selectively organize any help I might provide to say...someone stranded on the side of the road. Obama or related sticker? No help, just drive on by. Night or day, male or female, bad area, I don’t care. Such is the level of division now. We are no longer citizens of the same country. That unity is completely broken.

A year after the tornado that devastated Joplin, MO a lot of it is re-built and those poor people are going about their lives.
Years after Katrina poor New Orleans—man, they still can’t seem to get their act together. Maybe they need more money or celebrities or HBO specials.

We ants are busy making our own plans after last night. Sorry, grasshoppers.

Part of Conservatism is concept of individual choice and responsibility. The NE made a choice, and has been choosing it for years. They have chosen to be dependent on Government for aide and support. Who am I to deny them their choice?

I respect their choice and will allow them the individual freedom to fully real the consequences of those choices. However, Conservatism also states that I am limited to the consequences of my choices, and freedom from theirs.
