NY and NJ are at the Breaking Point, Open thread on Sandy aftermath and what happens next

What are you hearing?

I'm hearing about some desperate situations and parts of society on the verge. We are not seeing this in the news right now. I have several people reporting from Staten Island and other areas that people are cold and down to their last candles. What happens next?

Here are some photos sent to my phone from a friend:

Some people are on the verge of flipping out.

It's cold up here! I know we will survive this. Most of us, anyway. Life up here in the NYC metro area is stressful on a normal day, without this mess. That stress level has just been amplified now. People will react differently, each according to his/her inner nature and experiences. I hope it doesn't get interesting, if ya know what I mean.

where are you? can i bring you gas?
also, let the nice young lady know it's been the opposite around here. mc mansions without power, poor neighborhoods with power. there seems to be no rhyme or reason to the distribution of electricity. one side of the street with, one side without.

You touched my heart, rocketman.

Thank you for you very kind offer of assistance. You are so typical of so many Ron Paul supporters I have met and/or communicated with over the past few months... A special kind of people who, when joined together, give me some glimmer of hope for our country's future.

I will be seeing that nice young lady in a couple of hours and will certainly tell her about the mc mansions. It has to be really hard for her to have come to that conclusion and your news will ease her mind. I have offered to take her and her baby in, should she need another place to stay.

I will contact you by email and let you know my situation later today. Should I need help, I will let you know. I am hoping things get better by Monday. Still, I will contact you, as I would love to meet you under better circumstances. God bless you, rocketman.

Gas is on the way to me, rocketman.

Your extraordinary offer is much appreciated but, fortunately, not necessary now. You have my contact info in your email. Please do not hesitate to use it when ever you are in Union County and would like a hot cup of coffee or a meal. Patriots are always welcome at our house.

Oh..this is an easy one!

the democraps will blame the republicons and the Lib Media will help sell it. The liberal sheeple will swallow it hook line and sinker.

The republicons will blame the democraps. FAUX and their ilk will help sell it. The neoconservative sheeple will swallow the whole load.

And our fellow citizens in NY and NJ will learn how inept government is. They will be fleeced on fuel and all other necessities. The DHS will be there to lend a helping hand in case their is a need for 40 cal amunition...just don't task them for any water.

I am living in Brooklyn, just across from Staten Island. Some parts are not affected. Some parts are okay without power and no damage. Some parts got burned to the ground. The city pretty much stood at a standstill for about a week now.

There are people fighting over gas in lines that go miles long. Crime was elevated while power was out in most neighborhoods. These people are losing their minds. Wait until the dollar collapse. Shit will get really serious. Hopefully I have all my supplies and am armed by that time.

I have only a quarter tank of gas and I have been saving it. Most stores are closed. Some are open. I will be fine.
