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.

You're ranting like a paranoid, racist nut, IOW.
Whether "Africans," as you call them, are capable of racism or not isn't even the point. YOU are capable of racism, and are in fact guilty of it. Does that make it clearer?
Incidentally, "tha Professor" is just a nickname. You are a REAL racist.
At least be honest. It's bad enough that you're racist without being a coward, too.
tha Professor.

Yes. I agree. Calling another "a racist" gives vent to underlying psychological conflicts. One can often observe such names calling among little third graders. One would expect our elderly wealthy taxpayer supported university "professors" to have long ago outgrown such childish behavior.

Speaking for their defense, however, such behavior does allow them to cleverly hurl ambiguous - and usually meaningless - political emotionalisms for the purpose of evading the addressing of important issues.

GOSH... Boner's job was to pass the bill for Sandy and Boney... went home.

(quote)
"This failure to get relief now could be called the 'Boehner Betrayal,'" Schumer told a crowd of reporters and more than a dozen cameras at his Midtown office this morning.

Schumer said that House Speaker John Boehner "pulled out the rug from under us at the last minute," when he decided to adjourn the House after a contentious vote on the fiscal cliff deal without taking up the $60.4-billion request for Hurricane Sandy aid.

Members from New York and New Jersey had been told by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor earlier in the day that they would get an up-or-down vote on a bifurcated aid package, with one bill containing $27 billion in aid, and another with an extra $33 billion, and local Republicans were busy scrambling for support in the hopes of passing both bills.

Boehner's move left them sputtering and, in one case, threatening to leave the Republican Party.

Schumer said today that he had spoken to Cantor ten minutes before the press conference and that he remained supportive, pinning the responsibility on Boehner instead.

"We got caught in a crossfire of Beltway leadership squabbles," Schumer said.

He doesn't need an alibi, he cut the red tape that he was responsible for.

He allocated the money, people and resources within his power.

You just don't know how to read Le Dimbulb.

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.

FEMA is only allocated $3.6 billion for relief efforts,which is there.

Quit trying for an alibi for the worst ever congress and the "wannabe" teabagger John Boner.

The inept "worst ever" teabagger congress has the responsibility to allocate additional funding.

All this time and you still don't know how your government operates?

Of course not, you get your history and civics from FAUX news.

Poor teabagger.

Do you NOT know how your own government works?

The president can't "attach" ANYTHING to a bill nor can he strike anything from it.

THAT'S freaking "ridiculous".

FAUX is NOT a civics or history teacher.

Whining about something you don't know anything about.

That's FAUX's trademark.

Poor "civics challenged" teabagger.

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.
That's hilarious coming from Cali.

Remember those feelings when the "big one" hits you out there......
