SANDY & NO HOPE, NO CHANGE
Personally, US Northeast area where I sit, situated, negligibly affected by, as its being called, Megastorm Sandy.
Biggest inconvenience HERE is/was ALL public transportation, RRs, etc., being COMPLETELY shut down, closed, geschlossen, along with offices, schools, etc.
LOTS OF HYPE, media attention, along with it.
Otherwise, just another somewhat lengthy, typical, tropical rain storm event with patches of gusty winds here and there.
IT'S CALLED WEATHER!!
As long as you continue residing on PLANET EARTH weather HAPPENS!
Coastal regions ALWAYS hit by COASTAL STORMS flood, part and parcel of unbridled REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT, EXPANSION, along US coastal shorelines.
IT COMES WITH COMMERCIALIZED TERRITORIAL EXPANSION, construction, buildings!!
To be expected, anticipated.
Likewise, NYC floods since its inception because of sea level location NOW EXACERBATED by UNBRIDLED LUXURY COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT, EXPANSION, TYPICAL DENIAL FACTORS, and so on.
I MYSELF remember, as a very young CHILD, of course, wading through river flood waters in LOWER MANHATTAN, SAME areas ALWAYS affected from time immemorial, SINCE NYC bedrock, by the way, being part of SCOTLAND, first formed as continental shift divided and European and US continents parted with a spreading Atlantic Ocean.
BIG storms continue battering, damaging, flooding, NYC beaches, coastline.
However, years back, we did NOT get the same sort of commercialized, sensationalist, 24/7 media HYPE, unending attention, coverage, hyperbole, BLITZ, we have NOW.
Again, ALL natural processes above merely exacerbated by SELF-SERVING, ECONOMICALLY PROFITABLE, LUCRATIVE, INTENTIONAL, OSTRICH LIKE, DENIAL for purposes of CONCRETE AND ASPHALT REAL ESTATE EXPANSION, TOPOGRAPHY FLATTENED, MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE, GLOBAL WARMING, AND SO ON!!
So, what else is new??
FORTUNES spent to rebuild, insure, PRIVATE PROPERTY, AND, mobilize more and more sophisticated emergency operations, etc. BUT, god forbid, PRIVATE REAL ESTATE, LAND, OWNERSHIP, COMMERCIAL SPECULATION, CONCOMITANT DEVELOPMENT, OUTLAWED, FORBIDDEN, RESTRICTED, CONTROLLED, LIMITED and/or same industrial, natural and manpower RESOURCES nationalized, requisitioned, appropriated, allocated, mobilized for food and agricultural production, NON-PROFIT housing, education, transportation, health care, energy, a sustainable, a RATIONAL, FULL employment economy.
LAND, real estate, as its called, any more than sea, water, air, CAN NOT BE PRIVATELY OWNED, TRADED, SPECULATED, COMMODIFIED!!
Ask INDIGENOUS, what subsequently became US, native TRIBES, POPULATIONS, how THEY think, feel, about THIS!!
Now, I can, on my own PERSONAL, INDIVIDUAL, post/blog, make this statement, assertion, BUT, IF I were to dare attempt TRYING to organize, mobilize, advance, a POLITICAL PROGRAM, PARTY, MOVEMENT, OPPOSITION platform, on such issues, I WOULD BE SHOT DEAD, buried alive, on the spot, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER--SUPPRESSED, REPRESSED, ISOLATED, QUARANTINED, OSTRACIZED, BLACKMAILED, PERSECUTED, PROSECUTED AND/OR ASSASSINATED, MURDERED, ELIMINATED as a last and final resort, IF NECESSARY.
Same holds true for our representative, organized, CLASS COLLABORATIVE NAZI PARTNERED LABOR TRADE UNION WHORES, AFL-CIA and SEIU!!
Our/their AFL-CIA Building Trades COUNCIL are amongst the more EXCLUSIVE labor clubs and our very WORSE class collaborators, junior partners.
NEVER do THEY see a REAL ESTATE development expansion project they do NOT wholeheartedly, mutually, embrace, LOVE, at first sight and in which, of course, they participate as a "jobs program!!"
So, I can assure everyone, MANY MORE MAJOR weather, natural, catastrophes, disasters, coming given perpetuated IRRATIONAL HUMAN circumstances, factors, like those above combined to constitute "perfect natural and social storms."
