The Way Things Should Work.

It’s a shame that it takes a horrific event such as Sandy to bring us together to work toward a common cause. This picture of Governor Christie and President Obama touring New Jersey and offering comfort where they can is quite poignant to me. It reminds me that in times of crisis, it is possible to set aside our differences, roll up our sleeves, and work together. I have to give big respect to Governor Christie for putting his state before his politics. His non-partisan leadership in the midst of this crisis, clearly displays that he puts the well being of people before any conservative agenda.

I also have to pay big respect to Obama, for setting aside his campaign for a few days, in order to make sure that help to the East Coast was immediate, and not days later. He was attentive to the situation, and plowed through the red tape that always bogs down relief efforts such as this. He is the man to lead this country for another 4 years.

Oh, and Willard Romney; where was he? Why he was busy cleaning out an Ohio Wal-Mart for a “relief effort” of his own. Except in his case, his “relief effort” was a list ditch effort to save a campaign that’s been taking on water way before Superstorm Sandy. If he really truly wanted to help, maybe he could clean out one of those Cayman Island accounts of his, and donate that to the Red Cross: Rather than forcing a bunch of canned goods that they can’t use down their throats.

Superstorm Sandy: Cuomo Calls it as He Sees it.

As the East Coast struggles to recover from Superstorm Sandy, many of us can’t help but think that storms such as this are going to be the new normal. Global warming/climate change is very real, and yet, with only a few days left before the election, neither candidate is willing to address it. Governor Cuomo recognizes this catastrophe for what it is: how many more “superstorms” is the world going to have to recover from, before our “leaders” decide that real change in the way we treat our planet is desperately needed? I’m betting that it will be past the point of no return, and we’ll all be seriously fucked. Hell, it’s probably too late already.
