Nice job today avoiding Lois Lerner and the thug Barry Obama's corrupt political scandals.
Let's talk about beaches.

Breezy Point would welcome any contribution to help residents rebuild. Only 20% of residents are able to return. The devastation from Sandy was apocalyptic, and most flood insurance payments do not provide enough for residents to fully repair and/or rebuild. Breezy is a community of hard working middle class families who do not necessarily have the means to fill the gap after the insurance payments. Please help - go to breezypointdisasterrief.org scroll to the very bottom and donate any amount large or small. Thank you and thank you Wnyc for directing attention to the hard hit communities- we are still very much not back to normal.

Why do these coastal residents think they have any _right_ to rebuild there at all? They've been warned for at least 20 years that they are in a zone at very high risk under climate change. When these people haven't been denying that there is any such thing as climate change, they're busy voting Republican and acting as if they have a _right_ to do whatever they want at the expense of the general public while demanding lower taxes for themselves.
