Those beachfront houses in the Hamptons are going to be hit hard. I guess that can be considered bullish, except for the insurers.

Remember flood insurance is run by FEMA so we will funding lots of those folks rebuilding efforts

After Katrina lots of insurance companies argued that flooding caused the damaged to peoples homes and refused to pay.  The lucky ones had flood insurance and got a check pretty fast.  Of course it bankrupt the Flood insurance program but I digress.

Like I said,

I've got a real bad feeling about this storm.

Maybe when y'all get done talking about how vastly superior

you guys are to everyone on the planet,

and you're done venting about how 

you hate everyone,

you can show a little humanity.

Maybe. 

Atlantic City flooding already

and we're over 15 hours from it hitting the mainland.

Interesting to consider what this thing will do to insurers, actually. They're not making shit in a 0% interest environment - we'll see how they cover the payouts.

35 mph winds and 2-4 inches of rain would be considered a pleasant day here. Of course being east coast maggots it will be worth billions in federal money to them.

Well when I was a kid, I used to walk to school UPHILL... IN THE SNOW... AGAINST 50 mph winds... (& besides being uphill in both directions, the wind was blowing against you in BOTH directions)...

I have friends who actually did this (not the wind part). The bus stop to school was at the top of the hill and after school at the bottom. Mine was the same in both directions so the trip home was with the wind and downhill. Sweet

In NYC the challenge is the people.  It's the urine-soaked one-tooth glaring at you with yellow eyes, every day.  It's the gang of poor kids who want to be heard by you.  And when you ignore them, you are approached.  It's that guy on the corner that ruins your night.  It's the gun pointed at you under the bridge - you couldn't help it, you got sucked into when you just wanted to get home.  It's the break-in of your car and all they take is stuff of priceless sentimental value.  It's the line of traffic tickets when you just got your head above water.

The weather is just fun and games, more of an event that everyone talks about because finally, it's God pissing on you, not other men.

You manly mountain men wouldn't last long in the concrete canyons without popping.  Of this, I am certain.

NYC has degraded to slightly above zombie apocolpyse status. I try to avoid it at all costs and refuse to take my family in there unless totally necessary. My Dad is a retired cop/marine. A few months ago he parked on 82nd and 2nd. Nice area. He gets out of his car and some dude walks right up in his face and says "give me $20 and I will watch your car". My Dad says "my car is fine and get the fuck out of my face". Guy says "give me some money then or i will fuck up your car while you are gone". My dad (64 but thinks he is 25) gave the guy a few choices which mostly included dying right there. The guy chose to walk away. Same guy a day later stabs some 22yr old girl on the same block crossing the street.

NO ONE with a net worth under 10 million should want to live anywhere in Bloomberg's filthy feudal fiefdom. Based on your description, you are insane to continue living in such a place. You have not proved anything but your own idiotic bias.

No one is jealous of your city or its subhuman serfs and corporate/state parasite lords. You live in hell. Get over it.

Pay attention kids:

"...the National Weather Service in New Jersey is begging that people heed warnings, and evacuate if they are asked to. They write, "If you are reluctant [to evacuate], think about your loved ones, think about the emergency responders who will be unable to reach you when you make the panicked phone call to be rescued, think about the rescue/recovery teams who will rescue you if you are injured or recover your remains if you do not survive.""

Some are marxists some are not. The place is a contridiction. Huge support for 2nd Amendment--gay marriage and a general libertarian attitude. However, we also are dependent on the gov in a way that would make our great-grandparents blanch. 

Think of us as gay and over educated, deer hunting, lesbian friendly, white dominated, trustafarians who smoke dope, ski, and build tech companies, love high taxes and pack a huge amount of heat in the form GUNS GUNS GUNS!

You say Marxist--we say capitalists!!! Are they not the same today in the one party state.
