    Now that Sandy has punch us in the mouth, whatever you can do, please do it.

    If you can give money, the Red Cross and Salvation Army could use your cash.
    If you can give time, I'm sure both of those organizations could use you physically.
    People are going to need, blankets and lots of them, food, water and shelter.
    If you can't do any of that, prayers would be appriciated. If you don't pray or believe in God, send you good thoughts and positive waves to those who need it.

    I'll do exactly what people did for me when I got hit with 4 hurricanes in a row here in Orlando:

    Nothing.

    Say what??? I live in Cocoa Beach and recall that year, Orlando never even came close to feeling the sort of impact that Sandy just laid out.


    shame on you.

    Ok, so damage to my house is ok to you because it's worse for someone in New Jersey? I couldn't live in my house for two months, I had to pay thousands of dollars in damages above what the insurance company paid, and then my insurnace company bailed on the state and I had to get a new policy at a higher premium.

    What is the cut off dollar amount to be respectable amount of damage to you?

    Who's making sure that all of those people receiving aid have had a minimum dollar amount of damage?

    Shame on you.

    No shame on you. I assure you there are plenty of places that have felt the Punch of a storm like Sandy. The difference this time is how many people that were effected, and the fact that the area is not normally subject to such a storm.

    That's what insurance companies are for.
    Unless of course someone displaced is a moocher. In that case the tax payer foots the bill.

    If you are going to give to the Red Cross PLEASE specify that it is to go to the victims of Hurricane Sandy...or else it may go to administrative costs. Better yet, the Salvation Army gives a higher percentage to actual help.

    I lived through opal. I didn't need any help. I worked for a couple of weeks for nothing after Katrina until I got tired of dragging my tired white ass home, turning on the TV to watch some looting, anarchy and them shaking their fists at us says we didn't like black people.
