"Hurricane Sandy did what four years of Obama couldn’t do, bring the Left’s vision of sustainable growth to New York city."People trudging miles to their jobs (if they’re lucky enough to have one) because the subways are down and there’s no gas for their cars
(again, if they’re lucky enough to have one). People without that evil polluting electricity. People eating out of dumpsters and standing in long lines out in the cold for a handout of the bare necessities. -- Waznmentobe

Today, my husband witnessed a wondrous act of resourcefulness. A man with a horse trailer hitched to his truck was filling up individual 5 gallon jugs of gas in order to transport them back to New Jersey. He went out into the wide world of American plenty that lies just beyond disaster. He didn't wait like a hopeless fool in a line of idling cars for gasoline that is rationed by the spoonful. His neighbors hired him because he had a big, gas eating truck, and gave him money and jugs and sent him to Lancaster County to go shopping. He brought back not only gasoline, but food, water, clothing, blankets, batteries, and other things they might need. Those people are heroes, because they used their God-given talents and brains and didn't go crying to the cameras, asking for the government to come and help.

Amen, Jewel!! The huge masses of self-reliant of the previous generation have been decimated and replaced with mewling kittens begging to be taken care of. Sorry state of affairs, to be sure. Thank God there are still a few good men (and women) out there. This country needs more of them.

It's easy to get "wrapped around the axle" in a mess like Sandy. Jewel's post is a wonderful reminder that everything you need is available a couple of hours away.

Didn't they watch Al Gore's apocalyptic movie? You'd think they'd have been prepared with all the Democrat "leadership" up there.

Democrats don't join the Boy Scouts. Preparedness isn't in that lexicon because the state will provide.
