You fawning libs will say anyting adn do anything to protect this pos, won't you. The question is: WHY ???
He had everything in place before the storms hit to support and provide whatever the Governors asked for.

That's precisely the job of the Fed in such situations.

Not TRUE. If you watch ANY of teh network news stations, many people n Staten Island have NOTHING. No fresh water, no food, no heat, no shelter, NOTHING. FEMA hasn't even showed up !

On NBS News they showed a picture taken by a person who went to the local FEMA office for help.

The sign on the door of teh FEMA office said: "CLOSED DUE TO WEATHER". This is NOT a joke !

Watch teh news to see how people are suffering in Staten Island, and FEMA & the other federal agencies AND The Red Cross are doing NOTHING for these people !

Could it be because Staten Island is the ONLY REPUBLICAN borough in the city ???

Where's Te Obamaniac ???!!!

My mother had to evacuate because of no water, no heat, and no electricty, and there is STILL no word on WHEN those things are being restored.

And you people have established a Cult Of Personality around The Obamaniac just like Stalin had.

As we all know already, Republicans and especially evangelical Republicans have several tools missing from their logic kit. But let me try to gather some conclusions from what Republicans have been saying:

First, Obama won re-election only because he was lucky enough to have Sandy hit a week before election day. All those images of Obama looking presidential and important contrasted so sharply with Romney collecting canned goods in Ohio that Romney stood no chance.

Second, God sent Sandy as a message. Evidently, the message was "Republicans need to change their agenda or go home." They didn't change their agenda, so many have gone home.

This conclusion (and the inability of the evangelical Republicans to hear their own God speaking) is bolstered by the gentle warning He sent to the Republican convention. Isaac interrupted the convention but, ultimately, gave conventioneers only a mild taste of God's fury. Even after the close call, alas, Republicans paid no attention to God's clear warning.

Hence, He had no choice but to send Sandy, thus throwing the election to the Democrats. Let us hope, at last, that the evangelicals hear the word of our Lord. Their deafness to His warnings have cost many innocents far too dearly already.

The Governor who, like Christy, who also hopes to be a contender in 2016 said they could handle it themselves. The Federal funds were already available.

What disturbs me is the degree to which so many people are waiting for the Government to do everything.

There's a lot that these people could learn from the homeless they've ignored and vilified for so long, like how to start a fire in a barrel. Or they could learn something from the green people they mock, instead of whining about not having gasoline to run generators.

Solution in point:

It helps to at least know how to NOT be so dependent upon centralization of essentials.

I saw a guy on TV that was complaining that the Feds have not delivered generators. Know what I did when I was hit by a tornado in 2010? I BOUGHT a generator, and hooked up the essentials so I could keep functioning.

If gays DID cause the hurricane, then God must have WANTED Obama to win over Romney. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I rest my case.

Exactly what I mean.

With all the crap strewn around, they could be running the generators on woodgas, instead of whining about gasoline rationing. A few emergency solar panels could charge batteries. Some ham radio guys could set up coms again. Oh. That's right. Nobody actually learns how to DO or MAKE anything anymore.

I've been seeing lots of footage on the news about sad old ladies in dark apartments. Too sad, but the folks in charge are not miracle workers, nor is there endless money. There are shelters and places to take care of the displaced till this is sorted out. This is sorting out AMAZINGLY quick, as far as I have read. It's tough, sure, but what do they expect? Instant gratification?

This KILLS me to admit, but possibly FaFoxy is correct about one thing. Folks who live by the ocean are gonna get wet.

It reminds me of the impossibly wealthy in Malibu. Almost every year the area is hit by high tides or terrible fires and we see some 22 year old movie or music star weeping bitter tears about losing her "life long dream home" which she has lived in for a "whole YEAR already", after it slips into the sea or is burned to ashes. My insurance premiums go up to pay for her 15 room beach house.

I know the water view is pretty, but maybe they can move inland a bit, now that the GLOBE IS WARMING.

My building is setting up earthquake supplies and taking other precautions in the event of some disaster. If the country learned ANYTHING from Katrina, you have to be proactive.

Cities in general, and highrises in particular have insufficient roof-estate to solar generate their own power.

We need to start rethinking "city".

In other days the residents of small towns would help their neighbors in the event of fire or some other terrible problem, I mean in pre industrial days. Now, if house A survives while house B is destroyed the residents of house A go on a cruise to escape the noise of rebuilding next door.

Everyone has gotten the mistaken notion that Daddy will make it right and turn on the night light if we are scared of monsters. What if Daddy had 300 million kids? A LOT of light switches to flick. He is moving as fast as he can. Possibly the kid can take a flashlight to his bedroom to turn on the light on his own till Daddy shows up to turn on the bigger light?

I've still got my CB radio in the basement. I've had it since the 70's. I wonder if folks still use them, or if cels have made them obsolete.

Does one still need a license? I still have mine somewhere with my call number on it. I think it was something like, KBI7035 or something like that.

CB? No.

Check out Ham Radio, though. We're still around, still learning electronics from each other, and whenever stupidity or mother nature kicks out the plug on the networks somewhere, we are usually the first and only communication method with the outside world.

Few of us build radios from scratch with vacuum tubes and solder anymore, but that doesn't mean that there's nothing to do.

A great group of people.

Have Netflix ?

Watch: "Man on a Mission: Richard Garriott's Road to the Stars".

From the International Space Station, Richard talks with other Ham Radio operators back here on Earth ... including the King of Jordan. lol

We've launched and operate a couple of our own satellites in LE orbit.

Ham radio used to be an expensive hobby, which is one reason I went with CB (I'm notoriously frugal, ya know. And I live in a condo, which prevents me from outside antenna. Or have they made strides in that also?
