I hate bring up politics, but I think I have to share my outrage. I live in central NJ in the storm area. Most of my area still has no power (i'm one of the VERY few places lucky enough to have power restored). We still have plenty of fallen trees and quite a bit of damage in our yard with huge trees fallen just close to knocking parts of my house down if they had fallen at different angle.
It takes 1 hours to drive down the road 3 blocks to local store due to traffic and fallen poles, etc. cannot touch tap water for another week, not enough state workers to raise much of the fallen poles. Looting in a lot of places. just chaos in some areas. Cops doing the best they can with most of the roads shut. Nobody can go to work since 90%+ of roads are not driveable.
Then I noticed the hypocrisy. Governor Christie that wanted the federal government to shrink significantly and get rid of FEMA is all of a sudden kissing the ass of federal government to get FEMA aid. All of a sudden, he is hugging the president, practically begging him for all the help they can provide. State is practically broke and can barely afford it. Where are any of the big wall street businesses? The ones that begged for bailout money to bail them out? The ones that turned some of that money around for bonuses for the CEOs and others and returned the bailout money with massive profits. The ones that begged the government to let them off the hook with their bankruptcy due to their own bad policies? Any community assistance from any of them?
Where are the insurance companies that were bailed out with billions of our tax money? Where are they? ...probably getting ready to turn down most of the insurance damage claims with some random bs excuses. We and neighbors are all sending in claims right away for the very long paperwork process that could take mooonths to get anything back. Those insurance companies will probably find a loophole to get compensated by federal/state government for that by exaggerating and faking how much they had to reimburse. They will probably have more tax money coming their way soon
Hey, where is Donald Trump now?
