Karma is a Bitch For The 1 % ers

    The epicenter of Saturday's storm that left much of Connecticut without power is right in the back yard of many of the 1 %ers. Many left without power to run their septic systems , have ice for their Gin and Tonics, and water for their horses.
    Estimates of power restoration are up to 7 days.

    First off, it is spelled karma.

    And secondly, while Connecticut does enjoy copious wealth, there are parts of the state that were impacted by the storm that are not in Fairfield County. And while the majority of people are wealthy in Fairfield County, there are still journalists and other folks not as fortunate that also have lost power.

    So while yes, most of the 1%ers lost power, there are some of the rest of us 99's that are in trouble and don't have stacks of money to sleep on.

    Do you need power to run a septic system? I thought that ran on microbes.

    Perhaps the 1%ers can utilize their terrific skills to find an adequate substitute for ice during this powerful snowstorm.

    Loopy is that you? If you need a hot shower and meal you can come to my house. I lucked out in this storm and never lost power.

    Most of area is a mess. No sign of the National Guard , Brownie or Sean Penn. No one cares about the 1 %ers.

    Pretty sure they didn't run out of ice. If they wanted their G&Ts cold, all they had to do was put the bottle of gin on the back porch.

    They're setting up a shelter at Silver Spring CC. Or maybe just a tax shelter.

    Think of all the illegal immigrants the Job Creators are hiring to clear downed branches.

    The fat cats might only be mildly overweight cats when this is over.
