    The dangers from this event aren't just from a single hurricane - there are two cold fronts sweeping in from the west.

    ONE THIRD of the country's population will be affected by this Frankenstorm.

    How you can help:

    The Red Cross will be taking donations, as will other reputable organizations. Please be sure to check out the organization to make sure it's legit.

    Donate blood.

    If you're a utility worker, medical professional, or social worker your help is needed. If you are able-bodied, armies of sandbaggers are needed. If you live in or near the affected areas, call your emergency management agency, local police or fire department, county sheriff's department, or local Civil Defense group (if there is one.)

    Millions of people will have their homes damaged or destroyed by floods - the runoff from mountains will cause valley rivers to overflow their banks, and that water will be rushing much faster than usual.

    FEET of snow is predicted for mountain areas, particularly in West Virginia. Power lines WILL come down, leaving hundreds of thousands, mostly children, in freezing cold.

    If you want to help, but don't know what to do, call the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, or your pastor, who can help organize physical donations like food, water, blankets, baby needs, hygiene supplies, over-the-counter medicines, pet supplies, and laundry soap.

    if you contribute to Red Cross, if you want your donation to directly go for Hurricane Sandy victims, be sure to state that.

    We pay taxes to finance dozens of "green energy" companies that go bankrupt.

    We pay taxes to bail out poorly-managed car companies.

    We pay taxes to "stimulate" job creation and subsidize useless programs like "cash for clunkers".

    We pay taxes to bail out banks and insurance companies and people who can't afford to pay their mortgages, etc.

    Where have you been the past four years? :confused:

    Clinton's surplus didn't generate enough money to pay for the upcoming mess that Sandy's going to leave us.

    I'm sure the gods will make note of who gives a shit and who doesn't.

    Because, its a terrible idea to try and give governmental to support green energy to avert both global warming and energy dependance. The way republicans frame this is so fucking stupid.
