Is it just me, or is anyone else feeling few charitable impulses for the Northeast after it voted en masse for B. Hussein? http://www.google.com/elections/ed/us/results After Katrina, I felt genuine sympathy for the Gulf Coast and NOLA, even for those on the dole and woefully unprepared. I donated to relief efforts. I followed their plight and recovery. With Sandy, I am just not moved by the chaos. I have this sense that if they are so enamored by cradle to grave statism, then they are welcome to the poor response by the state. I have this "tough love" feeling, like we, as a country, need to let them suffer through the inadequacy of the federal and state responses so they might remember and learn that such dependence is unwise. With Katrina, I picture a giant Charlie Fox after the storm, but mostly ascribe the problems to omission and chaos. With Sandy, I have this gut feeling that those in control are deliberately playing favorites, that organized crime and labor unions have a heavy hand in controlling the relief and infrastructure efforts, and that the politicians played and are playing the event for personal gain (e.g. the Christie and BHO love-fest). Maybe it's just my post-election blues, but I currently envision my probably-increasing taxes being offset by a corresponding decrease in charitable giving. Anyone else feeling this way?
