First, How materialistic and shallow this country has become that after such of tragedy in the North East Cost some economists can say that “this is a good thing for our economy” really? So because a few companies and shareholders are gonna make tons of money like Loews and Home Depot, to name a few, from the suffering of others, that’s progress? what about that family that just lost everything? or that small business owner whose inventory just got wipe out? or those memories of those who struggled? or how about those who died? man, mentality like those is what is keeping us from growing faster and moving forward.
Second, I hate to admit that this calamity is helping our president to have an bigger edge on the election process. I really wanted for him to win the old fashion way, but I guess Mother nature knew something that we did not, and wants him to win as well. Cliche….
