Oh, so the standard is, "If you're that stupid, we have no sympathy for you"?
You people are absolutely f***ing heartless. ATS, I cannot believe your lack of compassion. You have no excuse.
Yes that is what I said. Glad to see you have paid such good attention to my countless post on this topic and didnt cherry pick one to jump on
Jesus Christ, when will you guys learn? But when the next war crops up, who will you go to first? "AMerica, please help us!"
Wtf are you talking about? I live here!
"Hmm, remember Sandy? That was a really compassionate show right there. I don't know, you seemed pretty sincere when you were griping about
the wusses that were stuck in Jersey...yeah, I don't think so. You're on your on in this one."
This was a Cat 1 hurricane. It is about as amusing to me as it is to people in the Northeast when people in the South freak out over a dusting of
Fact is this... the media hyped it up. They claimed 60-70 million without power. The reality? 7 million. That is hype and you can not hide that
But a hurricane is too much for you. Not deserving of your compassion and prayer. I see how that is. Humans truly are disgusting.

Wrong again. They are deserving of compassion. I am at a complete loss trying to figure out what you are going on about. This thread is about the
media hype. I said it a million times already, and I will say it again just for you....
This was a hurricane. There was going to be flooding, there was going to be damage, but people did not have to die. If the media reported the FACTS
and the DATA which I posted right here on ATS and got blasted for doing so, you would not have to see the loss of human life.
When the media plays up the fear levels, and then nothing happens, the next time they do it and the warnings should be heeded people will not listen.
I heard it from my friends in PA and NY prior to this storm. "Irene was nothing, why should I care now?"
Want to guess what will happen next time? People will remember that this Storm was not the end of the world storm that the media portrayed it out to
be, and they will not get out of the way when they should. You can see it already from this storm. People, like the poster who took a pic of water at
his door in Brigantine, probably refused to leave this time due to the hype from Irene. Yet this time he should have listened. The data told us there
would be a 6-12 foot storm surge (originally reported as 20 feet), and that person should have known that since he was living on the coast, right by
the ocean, that the storm surge would have an effect. Yet it was disregarded, why? Because the media pumped up Irene and was wrong then.
What is so hard to grasp about this concept?
