NJ Gov. Christie & Obama Play Arcade Games In the Rain on Asbury Park‘s Boardwalk.  Guess who won? All Smile now.

There was lots of news today and I did not get to do a post on my beloved Governor and Obama’s 2nd visit to the Jersey Shore.  Christie needs that return Photo-op for his reelection? Opps, I forgot, Christie is a Republican.  But Christie helped Obama and invited him to the Jersey Shore  after Hurricane Sandy devastation days before the Presidential Election of 2012.

Nuff said, The Phillies are playing the Red Sox’s, top of the 9th inning Cliff Lee (5-2) on mound. ( I love lefties)  3-1 Phillies.  (So sorry my Dear friend Tom, forgive me) Will my Philles find a way to Win in the Green Monster? Will Papelbon’s return to Boston close the deal if winning in 9th,? Or will Lee go the distance because he looks surgical tonight? Breath, it is long MLB season. Sorta like the next Presidential election of 2016.  Well, not that long.

New Jersey: Stronger than the Storm? We shall see, it is still up for debate, Christie.  Not all of the shore’s coast line has been replenished from Super Storm Sandy.

My personal photos of my last trip to the shore, Ship Bottom, Long Beach Island, New Jersey.  Labor Day weekend 2012. That is what we call it here the shore not the beach. It has been my childhood’s destination for the past 5 decades.  Yes, do the Math.

I always go to shore in the PM so I do not have to pay to get on the beach. But,  LBI is laid back. No buses over the causeway bridge. It is like you have a private beach.  Hey, Christie, can you ask your friend Obama if he can cut another check for a free shore passes this year for all the Jersey shore visitors for 2013? Since you gave Obama that photo-op after Super Storm Sandy right before the Presidential election 2012.  We New Jersey residents will never forget.

They would be available up to 18 months to commercial parks with vacant pads, it is being reported.

FEMA Housing Supervisor Donna Weise said,

Most the houses here are for home owners who are currently rebuilding their primary residences.  The homes will be deployed depending on where the need is, and right now the greatest need is in Monmouth and Ocean.

Staten Island Sandy victims pack New York City Town Hall, November 29, 2012.  More than 1,000 people went to New Dorp High School to ask FEMA and other agencies what to do about their damaged homes and neighborhoods.

People were turned away at door and could not fit into auditorium.

Nicole Chati of New Dorp Beach said,

These people are frustrated, Lives were lost. My house — I can rebuild the house. My neighbor is dead.”

Tom Saglembeni of New Dorp Beach exclaimed,

What’s gonna happen to our neighborhood? Are they condemning our neighborhood?”

Scott and Deirdre McGrath injected,

I’m homeless. My home has no gas, water, sewage, but yet I’m still sleeping in there.  I have dust and mold that he [Department of Health NYC] is telling me to avoid, where am I supposed to go?  I’ve gone to FEMA, SBA, apartments.com, Robert Defalco Realty.  I’ve gone to news, I still cannot find an apartment, where am I supposed to live?  I feel just as lost as I did before I came here.”

Other people yelled,

I have a question!” “No one is doing what’s right for us!” “You’re a piece of crap!” “Don’t run around and pass the buck, from the FEMA guy to Department of Buildings guy.  Help us, answer our questions.”
