My husband is with the DRT- they are evacuating a nursing home there& says there are riots for food, etc. do they know a nor'easter is moving in& the. National weather service has issued warning of more flooding& snow, wind, etc? Someone needs to declare Marshall law imo& get those on the coasts out for there own good, and to keep the DRTs safe from having to risk more lives to save people that won't evacuate!!!

what. You need to realize most people dont have anywhere to go and how many people can afford a hotel? I live in the real world lady!!! Are you living ten days now with no lights or heat? We are struggling to survive while someone like you says negative things. Your husband God bless him for CHOOSING to do the job he does. Im sure you are sitting in a nice warm house with lights and foid aplenty.God forbid u ever have to face what we r facing. Then again maybe it woukd open your eyes to reality.

i left my home after the second day of no electricity.
i wouldn't allow myself or my children to stay there under those conditions.(we were out for six days)
if your staying in your home for ten days now, with nothing, i wouldn't be telling that lady to live in the real world...
maybe you should be looking into staying with family or friends.
even your homeowners insurance (if you have) and FEMA will help pay for some of your living expensives.

Spray paint a large sign. "Bloomberg doesn't care " and call Fox News. You'll get action.

Everyone keep quiet. I need to catch up on sleep. If things are not better by April I will make another token appearance.

Why do you ask us for help? You voted for obammy. Just tell him you need help. He will be right over. Probably put Biden in charge.
