A guy on the shore in New England, maybe Scituate Mass., showing his
house to a reporter, showed how the deck boards were ripped from the
joists by the heavy suft during the storm a few days ago, even though he
used 1 3/4" screws.
Damage to the siding, etc. too.

It was MA, not many Republicans there. More likely it's the Kennedy clan.
For further proof that wealth isn't exclusive to the Republican party,
take a look at Congress. Despite the fact that there are many more
epublicans than Democrats, of the top 10 wealthiest members of Congress,
8 are Democrats, lead by Jay Rockefeller, with a net worth of $108 mil.
He's a good example and like the current Kennedy clan, he didn't earn it,
he inherited it.
Not anymore but I was one when this dawned on me.
A black co-worker friend told me that he became a registered Republican
and became active in the party so he could be appointed to the city

It is stupid to assume that one's wealth sets their political preference
when running for office. When seeking office they take the easiest path
and yes I think it is easier to fool Democrats.
Charlie Baker became a Democrat when I wasn't looking? I lived in MA for a
couple of years in the early '70s. During that time I voted for Edward
Brooke for US Senator. He had two things going for him. He was a Republican
and was the first African American Senator since the Reconstruction. I
believe that could be further qualified as the first African American
Senator that was actually elected by popular vote.
Then there was Mittins... I think there must be one or two Republicans in

It was hard to tell with the camera angle etc. but it looked like this
guy was maybe only 20 feet from the water. It may have been an old
house in the old part Scituate. Not the earliest part if that is

I agree, although this house did not look expensive. He had 6 feet of
space between his house and the one next to his. It was a rectangular
box, going up about 2 floors plus the roof, with old-fashioned siding,
real clapboard or an old version of T1-11. The deck was not very big,
and since he knew the length of the screws, I figured he built it
himself. I'm guessing built in the '20's or '30's before tourists had
gotten past Cape Cod
