Middle Class New Yorkers Are Eating Out of Garbage Dumpsters. Do you see why I said it was stupid to believe “Hurricane Sandy would be good for Obama!”
[ H/t Drudge Report for the image that should clearly show all of you that, no, Hurricane Sandy was NOT politically good for Barack Obama and Democrats ]
Honestly, I don’t like calling people stupid…but for the last few days we’ve seen all the usual fear porn mongers on conservative sites frantically claiming that “Hurricane Sandy would be good for Obama!” or that “Because of Hurricane Sandy Obama will win the election!”. The people who are writing this stuff are either stupid…or are they are deliberately lying to their readers just to drive up web traffic and freak people out for fun. A lot of you out there read that stuff on either AceofSpades or HotAir or Breitbart (Andrew Breitbart would truly be ashamed of what happened to his websites and who is writing there now) or wherever and were reduced to quivering puddles by brushes with frost-fingered fear. I have no idea why you believe the fear mongers, but you choose to…and I only hope you see how wrong these people all are.
Please do not allow the fear mongers to keep panicking you by letting them toy with your emotions for their own fun and profit.
I told you from the beginning that Democrats are incompetent and their response to Hurricane Sandy will be inept, as everything the last four years with them in control has been. Barack Obama has no idea what he is doing and most of the team he brought with him to Washington from Chicago are buffoons. They have not done a single thing right in four years, and they were not able to do anything right in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I told you that by Friday of this week people in the one-party-rule Democrat enclaves affected by the path of Hurricane Sandy would be FURIOUS because the slow-moving and incompetent public sector unions there would not restore order quickly…and conditions would look like those in a horror movie. This is how things will be in New York and New Jersey until the spring, folks…and certainly until after the election next Tuesday.
Today, we learn that well-dressed middle class New Yorkers are EATING OUT OF GARBAGE DUMPSTERS because Democrats have not restored basic services in a city they completely control and a state they control.
Do you understand the ramifications of this?
It’s only been a day or two since Sandy and this is already happening. By next Tuesday, there will be full-on riots in New York over food, water, electricity, heat, and basic shelter. These riots will actually happen, unlike the ones the fear mongers insist will take place when Obama loses. It is not a far step for middle class people to make from eating garbage out of dumpsters to killing each other for food in Manhattan. It has gone all kinds of Escape from New York out there…on Barack Obama’s watch.
Contrary to the fear porn you read by Ace, Allahpundit, Ben Shapiro, and others this is a VERY BAD THING FOR BARACK OBAMA.
Democrats are showing they have no idea how to handle any crisis…and people who heard for the last seven years what a monster George W. Bush was because of Katrina are now scratching their heads and wondering why on Earth Democrats can’t get it together with Sandy.
Seriously, open your eyes and just read the stories that Drudge is flashing today…about the chaos and ineptitude Democrats are manifesting in New York and New Jersey in the storm’s wake.
Then, sit down and think about every single conservative writer or pundit who claimed that “Hurricane Sandy will win Obama the election!”.
If these people scared you with fear porn over this…when you are now clearly seeing that these were just outright lies…then you need to decide if you want to spend the rest of this election believing any of these people and their fear porn anymore. That’s up to you, but I hope you are honest with yourself and you can admit if you were taken in by all the cries of “SHARK! SHARK! GET OUT OF THE WATER!” that had your heart racing and your bodies gasping for air because Ace, Allahpundit, Ben Shapiro, and the others told you to panic…and today you see there was no reason to panic and they had just played you for a fool.
They did this to both drive up their web traffic and also to see how freaked out they could get you…and for a lot of you it worked. Going forward, you need to decide if you’re going to go running for the beach, knocking over old people and small children, the next time the fear porn peddlers shout “SHARK!” in the last days before November 6th.
Stop letting these guys direct emotional terrorism at you and please calm down and think about these stories before they give you heart attacks.
Barack Obama is going to lose. Nothing can save him. The election will not even be close.
And come November 7th, when you see you had no reason to be terrified…I really hope you give all the guys who scared the stuffing out of you for the last two months a piece of your mind so that they are prevented from pulling this stunt on you ever again.
FURTHER READING (h/t Drudge):
If you think this is going to cause anyone to vote for Democrats then you are out of your damn mind. And any conservative writer pushing that apocryphal fear porn needs to lose his job and his platform that allows him to scare the bejeebus out of people with stupid lies like this.
UPDATE: Check this out: CATASTROPHIC damage to NYC subways.
So, my boyfriend Justin is an architect and one of the classes he took in school had something to do with transportation systems and urban planning.
He watched the video that’s embedded in the story above, the one about the catastrophic damage to the subways. Justin says there’s no way they are going to get the subways functioning again FOR A YEAR. “All of that track is going to need to be replaced because the water would have bent it when it rushed through the tunnels. It will not be safe to run trains on that, they’d derail”.
Here in Chicago, there is a “subway” called the “El”, because part of it is Elevated. One of the lines is called the Red Line, and it runs north and south…from way up past Boystown near Evanstown and then down to the depths of the Southside. Sox Stadium is roughly 3/4 or so from the end of the line…and all the track that’s south of Sox Stadium is being replaced next year…with the entire line south of Sox Stadium being shut down FOR A YEAR so it can be fixed.
It “catastrophic damage” doesn’t mean that the New York Subway system will be down for a year, then I don’t know what “catastrophic” means.
None of this will be talked about before the election, but New Yorkers are not stupid. They know the subways flooded and there will be massive damage. None of those trains are coming back into service soon. If they were back running by next summer, I would be surprised.
Just for fun, I had Justin email one of his old professors from school — the one who taught the class on transportation systems — and the guy wouldn’t guess how long it would take to fix but he said that “they will need to replace all of it and it will not be done quickly”.
Factor in the unions that deliberately drag jobs out to last longer so the unions earn more, and New Yorkers will have to adjust to life without subways for a year. I really think that will be true.
