    I agree that people care about one another, but at the same time.... I don't believe that includes high profile politicians.

    The stupidity here surpasses anything you've ever demonstrated. Real estate on the water, and PKM can attest to this, is considerably higher than that inland. For instance, here in NJ, many if not most of those homes destroyed or at least flooded terribly by the storm approached or exceeded 1M. Hell, there are hundreds if not thousands of them along our coast in the 2-20M range. Hardly peasants. And it was these coastal areas as well the low-lying ones most devastated by Sandy.

    Well I think your stupidity surpasses almost anything I've ever heard here.
    If you don't actually believe that politicians do not use catastrophes to there advantage politically, then you have no idea how politics work.

    They're peasants because they don't have the power and influence that someone like the president has.
    And the point is, they could care less about any of these people.
    It's all about furthering their careers for most of them, including the president.

    Most politicians are not all that wealthy (at least before they start office). I believe there's some truth in both. I think in times of hardship, most have a legitimate concern for those suffering .. it's also easy to see them being careful with their words and what image they're portraying in front of the camera, especially in an election year.

    I think these things would be far more 'pure' if not for there being cameras everywhere and shock journalism being the chosen mode of marketing the news.

    Ozzy,

    I wasn't referring to their (not "there" as you liked to spell it moran) power or lack thereof. I was referring to the fact that you called them peasants. Millionaires are hardly peasants. And whether these politicians truly give a damn or not really means jack ****. Their actions and how they've dealt with this situation does. But keep trolling.

    They are peasants as far as these high profile politicians are concerned, but if you prefer to believe the other..... to each their own.
    Their actions have everything to do with the fact that cameras are always in their faces, and watch everything they do. Just like PKM described.

    I'll leave the updates to Candrew, Wes, and anyone else living in the area. The damage was quite obviously massive in scope. I'm only guessing that a month from now things will be back to normal (other than cosmetically).

    I did see your wife and your cake pops lol. I may have jumped the gun a little, as I'm sure a few others have as well.

    I haven't been anywhere except work, home and the gym since the storm hit.

    You probably know as much about the condition of NYC as I do.

    I will say a Power Company from Missouri is working on the telephone poles in the business park I work in. And yesterday I saw an Ohio Edison truck working on some power lines near my house - so I think everything that could be done right now is being done.

    Not only do we turn our noses to modern science but we are now psychic as well. Good to know. But hey, you're right, these politicians don't give a ****. They're only flying all over the place to assess the situation and talk to the people. They're only doing everything they can to get as much money and charity as possible to help expedite the the rebuilding and healing process...or as quickly as the insurance companies will allow anyway. Ya know, they're only doing their job. And this is coming from someone who loathes Christie.

    Who's pissing and moaning? I'm relishing the idea that you actually find it a good idea to not only post a pic of yourself on this site but do so looking like an unemployed meth addict who can't figure out why he can't get a job. Keep at it though bro. If that's what mom allows under her roof.

    Why wouldn't it be chill to post a pic of yourself? Screw avatars, I am who I am.
    Unemployed meth addict? Mom?
    I'm a manager at a retail store, and I have two kids. Smart guy ;-)

    I'm actually relishing the fact that you prefer to make up stories in your head about who people may or may not be, in order to restore your cute little ego.

    Next time please insert a bunch of *******...... ******........ ****** and *****'s next time, so I can take you a little more seriously.
