You can tell that the majority of the people affected by super storm Sandy are not part of the 47 percent of the population that sucks off of the government. Compare the victims of Sandy to those of Hurricane Katrina in the south. You have generation after generation that are taught and told by their parents to do nothing and live off the government. They are told that they are "owed" something and that somebody else is responsible for their well-being. That is very sad. The American Dream is not a guarantee. It is up to you to make that dream come true. The government is not responsible for getting you food, money, a home, or even a cell phone. Obama thinks otherwise. Get off your butt and provide for you and your family. Stop having more children than you can afford or take care of. Look at our neighbors to the east banding together to help each other. Look at how more organized and determined they are. You don't hear as much blaming the government with Sandy as you did with the folks with Katrina. How are you supposed to help someone who doesn't want to help themselves? You can see the difference in people.
