Frustration flooded storm-battered parts of New York on Tuesday as Congress seemed ready to allow yet another day to pass without approving badly needed disaster aid.

That is your Affirmative Action President, and his affirmative action advisors. They don't have a clue, but you reelected them so I have no sympathy for you.

Many east-coasters build overtaxed homes on low-lying land that is known to be at the center of massive periodic storms. Although this provides plenty "snob appeal" for insecure home owners, after these catastrophic storms demolish their improvidently built homes, they moan and groan that taxpayers should "help them" once the inevitable happens.

Hard working overtaxed Americans include decent non-tobacco smokers of good-will as well as overtaxed Americans who enjoy the simple worker ("middle") class pleasure of using an occasional tobacco product.

When was the last time organized groups of owners of homes that have been built on low lying land demanded the Government stop abusing decent tobacco users and non-tobacco users of good-will - including hard working owners of neighborhood beer joints and restaurants?

I have never heard of ANY organized resistance to this tyranny from those who now are demanding that decent non-tobacco smokers of good-will, as well as decent tobacco users, be taxed to rebuild their homes - homes that in all likelihood would only be washed away once the next catastrophic storm hits. Far from it. In fact, election results clearly show that most of them wholeheartedly support Mayor Bloomberg's abuse of the ordinary minority who pay taxes.

Let the moaners and the groaners rebuild their OWN homes.

They aren't waiting on the president, they have been waiting on the teabagger congress for over 65 days.

They won't help millions of people because their only concern is helping three, Charles, David and Grover.

Typical. No help for those who lost their homes, but goal line defense for those with incomes over $250,000.

Most of those were small business owners who would've had to shut down, dopey. They've been saved by the House.

99% of the Bush tax cuts kept in place....this is hilarious. Anti-terror policies, economic policies..obama riding W's coattails like Clinton rode Reagans.

Teabaggers are just sad.

Why do teabaggers just blurt out crap?

Oh' that's right, FAUX and Limbaughtomy.

When Katrina hit, that congress and the Bush had appropriated the money in 10 days to their credit.

It's what happened during the storm and the ineptitude of Michael Brown which George praised,while nothing was being done or done wrong but that was his track record anyway.

Despite Republican efforts to whittle down President Obama's $60.4 billion Hurricane Sandy relief request to a mere $23.8 billion, Senate Democrats (with the help of 12 GOPers) managed to pass the bill almost virtually intact on Friday.

Estimates of damage run well above of the %3.6 billion FEMA was allocated for the storm.

The red tape of the teabaggers has EVERYTHING to do with it,we're POSITIVE.

Poor teabagger.

Grabbing a bottle of scotch and a carton of smokes before he hits the links back in Ohio.

New York area-lawmakers in both parties erupted in anger late Tuesday night after learning the House Republican leadership decided to allow the current term of Congress to end without holding a vote on aid for victims of Superstorm Sandy.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said he was told by the office of Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia that Speaker John Boehner of Ohio had decided to abandon a vote this session.

Abandoning people, teabaggers SOP.

At least McTurtle voted before he skipped town.

It's congress that allocates additional funds.

The president did deliver.

October 30, 2012



More than 7,400 Citizen-Soldiers and -Airmen had been mobilized in 11 states to respond to Hurricane Sandy by 4:30 a.m. today, and more were on the way.

National Guard assistance to local first responders and the Federal Emergency Management Agency included support at evacuation shelters, route clearance, search and rescue, and delivery of essential equipment and supplies.

The focus of National Guard missions was quickly shifting to recovery in the aftermath of the storm.

As the storm, now downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, made its way farther inland and continued to wreak havoc, states of emergency were declared by the mayor of the District of Columbia and the governors of 12 states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia.



Guard members were assembling and staging in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Virginia, according to the National Guard Coordination Center, which monitors the response spearheaded by the states.

More than 85,000 National Guard members are available to assist civilian authorities in potentially affected states in support of relief efforts. Available National Guard resources include almost 140 rotary-wing aircraft to perform search and rescue, reconnaissance, and personnel or cargo-carrying missions.

Critical equipment available from the National Guard also includes 75 Zodiac boats, 3,125 high-water vehicles, 43 reverse osmosis water purification units, 3,535 generators and 726 debris-clearance vehicles.

President Obama has now issued emergency declarations for Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. The President's action authorizes FEMA to coordinate all disaster relief efforts to provide assistance for required emergency measures to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety.

Currently, more than 1,500 FEMA personnel are positioned along the East Coast working to support disaster preparedness and response operations, including search and rescue, situational awareness, communications and logistical support.

In the days of the Second World War, the Greatest Generation always helped their fellow Americans, on the spot, then and there. There was no question about waiting; there was no delay at all.

This delay in aid shows how far the culture of the United States has fallen since those times. It makes me wonder what happened to our society.

Reality to New York: Drop dead!!

If you spent HALF of what you spend on unnecessary "administrative assistants" in the NY school system, you could have had a wall a mile high around LI and NYC years ago.

How about the no-show staffers to the Albany legislators? Anyone in a club house can tell you about those. You work part time two weeks a year and you get you and your family on the NYS medical plan (not subject to BozoCare) for legislators, plus some hefty vacation money. Why not have those club house lawyers (yes, they are all lawyers) shoveling mud out of basements?

How about those state and county workers that live in the cafeteria and show up two hours late and leave two hours early?

Don't believe it? Go to the parking lots and see when they arrive and leave.

In conclusion, New York, if you can't afford the flood and storm insurance - live somewhere else. VERY far away.
