As hurricane Irene bears down on the Jersey Shore, the Best Buy in Howell, NJ has taken it upon themselves sell cases of Dasani water for $40.56. One of the DJs for New Jersey 101.5 just sent this photo to theCHIVE.
At a time when it’s so important for these seaside communities to come together to help each other out (maybe even lower the price on water, eh), it’s disappointing to see a massive corporation like Best Buy not only assume zero social responsibility, but also go the extra mile to make a buck by selling bulk cases of water at the single bottle price during an emergency.
Press secretary Jay Carney defended Obama's plans to take a break even as he's pledged urgent action on those issues.I do begrudge him that time. He needs a little Clinton gravitas, a little of that old "I feel your pain". We're still waiting, after three years, for things to get better. I know the Republicans are working against him but that's the name of the game. That's politics. They aren't going to work with him so he has to learn to go through them or around them. If he won't learn that one simple lesson, to stand up and fight for what he believes, he needs to forget re-election and let Hillary Clinton get into a primary fight.
"I don't think Americans out there would begrudge that notion that the president would spend some time with his family," Carney said.
