Well there you have it. All those democrat voters, in lines a mile long, waiting for GASP! Gasoline! The ones I saw being interviewed were apoplectic. "Hell, I voted to make sure ANWR is left a pristine bog in Alaska, pass me my five gallons please". Oh the irony.
These states are the bastions of liberal policy and liberal eco thought. Fossil fuels are anathema, well except when the fuels are scarce it appears. I feel for these people and have sent my donations off to the Red Cross to help, but after having listened to the Charles Schumers, Bernie Sanders and Robert Menedez's all these years stopping oil and gas exploration and demonizing the industry, I just can't dig deep enough into my gut to feel sorry for those bastards.
Someone said we are only a couple of days away from anarchy at any given moment. No gas, no food, no electricity (IPhone, Blackberry's yikes!) and voila, the civilized world is now playing caveman. The fact the east coast was ravaged by a storm and appears to have been unprepared for the aftermath is breathtaking. There is a hundred million people back there and many have been affected by "Sandy". Just as we Americans from everyplace have helped each pithier in times like this, fires, earthquakes, tornadoes etc., this is the first time in my lifetime of recollection the east has experienced this destruction.
Mother nature could care less if you are a democrat or a Republican. She will smite everyone. But at least a Repuvlicans have been doing their darnedest to prepare the country for these things by being the ones putting the food on the table and gas in the tank. Today it was reported the government agencies were telling the people it will be weeks before many of the comforts lost in the storm will return. Then the next story was how Home Depot, Sam's Club and Lowe's had trucks full of goods, lined up ready to enter the zone of destruction, ready to supply the necessities. That was happening in moments. They were prepared while the government was not.
Maybe we should put those CEO's in charge of disaster preparedness. Then it was reported that tankers were offshore and unable to dock in the east coast ports because the Coast Guard had closed the ports! My GOD, is this what things have come to? Apparently.
So, there it is. Years of eco policies, years of government dictates and regulations on everything and we get PARALYSIS in all things government. We get ACTION in all things private. Next time you liberals are in line for five or ten gallons of the precious fuel for your Prius, remember how it feels to be in uncertain times.
NEVER VOTE DEMOCRAT. That is the lesson here if you actually want to drive a car, take an elevator or have a cup of fresh water. Because you didn't build that, a Republican did.
