Seven years after a disastrous response to Hurricane Katrina, the Federal Emergency Management Agency is winning praise for how it's dealing with Superstorm Sandy.
"This is the all-new FEMA, and the leadership is very, very good, very focused," said Dr. Irwin Redlener, a pediatrician and director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. "They're doing an excellent job."
Even in the highly charged political environment days before the U.S. elections, FEMA won plaudits from governors of both parties
New Jersey's Chris Christie, whose state bore the brunt of the storm, told CBS News on Tuesday that "cooperation has been great with FEMA here on the ground," while Delaware's Jack Markell told CNN that people in his state have been "really, really impressed by the response of FEMA."

Just wait to see how Christie deals with non union utility workers coming in to NJ to volunteer their time and assistance being turned away because they are non union.

The heartbreaking discovery came as residents and public officials complained that help has been frustratingly slow to arrive on stricken Staten Island, where 19 have been killed — nearly half the death toll of all of New York City.

Garbage is piling up, a stench hangs in the air and mud-caked mattresses and couches line the streets. Residents are sifting through the remains of their homes, searching for anything that can be salvaged.
Who was that said this storm was "hyped"?

Ah think they were mistaken....

"We have hundreds of people in shelters," said James Molinaro, the borough's president. "Many of them, when the shelters close, have nowhere to go because their homes are destroyed. These are not homeless people. They're homeless now."

Molinaro complained the American Red Cross "is nowhere to be found" — and some residents questioned what they called the lack of a response by government disaster relief agencies. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Federal Emergency Management Agency Deputy Administrator Richard Serino planned to tour the island on Friday.

Four days after Sandy lashed the East Coast with high winds and a huge storm surge, frustration mounted across New York City and well beyond as millions of people remained without power and motorists lined up for hours at gas stations in New Jersey and New York.

Yeah that and the CIA brass finally explaining what really happened which is pretty much what I've been saying since early October.

The U.S. economy added an estimated 171,000 jobs in October, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics monthly employment report released Friday — exceeding analysts expectations, and sparing President Obama from lackluster economic news days before the election

The figures suggest a strengthening labor market, and include significant upward revisions to previous months’ employment estimates. BLS now estimates that the economy added an impressive 192,000 jobs in August, up 50,000 from a primary September revision and up even more from the initial, weak August estimate of 96,000. Likewise, BLS estimates that the economy added 148,000 jobs in September, up 34,000 from its initial estimate of 114,000.

Those revisions reflect an accelerating recovery, but also illustrate the report’s significant uncertainty. That uncertainty hasn’t stopped members of both parties from spinning the initial figures for partisan advantage. The report comes just four days before polls open Tuesday, lending additional salience to the unemployment rate, which ticked upward from 7.8 to 7.9. for the promising reason that over 578,000 people entered the work force.

Of course nature has always gone through cycles. No one denies it.

The truth is most climatologists agree that man has changed the atmosphere through greenhouse gas emissions & this will change our climate. It is making the Earth warmer & this will bring climate change.

Now you right whiners can run & hide from this all you want. You can continue to make this a political issue instead of a science issue.

Republicans believed in global warming until the Republican Party decided that it would hurt their major donors so they convinced dumbasses like you that global warming doesn't exist.

Mitt Romney will roll back emissions regulations, burn more coal, & allow global warming to continue to increase.

Expect more mega storms & expect the government to spend tens of billions more a year in weather related disaster relief.

When did Republicans get stupid?

Mayor Bloomberg agrees &told Mitt to take his dog & pony show elsewhere.
