11 days without power, Sandy
victims want answers

CBS, by Staff (CBS/AP)

Original Article

Posted By:JimJr, 11/9/2012 1:25:16 PM

Eleven days after Hurricane Sandy made landfall, hundreds of thousands of utility customers in New York and New Jersey are still without power - and they want answers. Unfortunately, the answers provided by the power companies have generated even more anger and frustration. When asked Thursday night when power may be restored, LIPA Chief Operating Officer Michael Hervey told CBS Station WCBS the utility is aiming for the middle of next week. WCBS reports one spokesman suggested power may not be fully restored until Thanksgiving.

Comments:
No power until Thanksgiving! We get storms like this every year on the Gulf Coast and it never takes a month to restore power. (LIPA is correct in requiring all homeowners who got flooded to get an electrical inspection.) Finally, pay attention to the lady in the last paragraph. It explains what happened last Tuesday.

What's the problem OP? Is this lady to supposed to repair her own electrical lines and turn on her electricity? Of course this is America and someone should be there to help her! NO ONE should go without power for this long! It's 2012 for Pete's sake! And I don't give a rat's about your experience on the gulf!

Where is the outcries against Obozo? He's your guy NY-NJ. Why aren't you dumping on him for this mess like you did Bush? If it wasn't for the storms which no one has control over, I'd say, " you people created this nightmare of a government. You get what you pay for just like the idiots in CA"

Zippy had his photo opp and you are on your own now. if this had happened in a foreign country, he would be all over it with troops on the ground.

It's not just power, they have damaged homes and some no homes. Sewage and garbage will be a nightmare. They are afraid to leave because of looting.

#1, we all have done without power for far longer than 11 days. Yeah it rough but this is what you get for having unions. Our electric co-op sent crews to help. We had a devastating ice storm a few years back, our electric lines sustained a lot of damage. They got the power it took them weeks, but they are now, this year, putting in new poles and running new lines. We never heard a thing from Obama nor any federal agency. It was cold, the middle of winter, we as communities helped each other, oh it took a year and a half to pick up the debris from the downed trees, since the summer drought and the still damaged trees we are still having effects of that ice storm.

The truth is that thousands of transformers were destroyed, and there isn't the stock to replace them all. Government efficiency standards have driven many smaller manufacturers out of business, leading to a consolidation of manufacturers who, operating near capacity already, can't possibly absorb the additional demand. It's going to take weeks. Many weeks.

Now only the conscience of the utility workers rewards them for restoring power. The crews are getting unlimited overtime and their jobs are secure. Why kill the Golden Goose?

And for the utilities and suppliers, why restart or repair any marginal equipment? The money is coming in, replace anything and everything you can with brand new hardware.

The good job done by most is to their credit. But unlimited funding from Washington and Albany changes everything it touches.

I find it ironic that NJ and NY went overwhelmingly for Obama. God forgive me but this is what they get from trusting Obama or anything out of his mouth. Some people just don't get it the first, second or third time. Maybe they'll get it now. Too little too late for them. Reality bites.

Non-union Electricians came from all around the conservative states and attempted to help these leftist whiners, and their own electric and government unions called the other electricians Scabs, spit on them and drove them away. I know this first hand. This did happen. They are on their own now, because nobody with half a brain is going to spend their time, money or good will to go back up there.You get what you vote for.

Sounds like there was no gameplan for a wide-spread storm. Couldn't they call-in electrical repair people from all across the country? Probably no - due to union work rules - and the people suffer.

Since the media failed to report on the conditions, only the heroic response of Obama, oh well. I am praying for them, but there is blood on the media's hand. I heard Hannity talkign about it, but it came across as gotcha reporting, fair or not.

Bet you all who voted this way will be giving a lot of thanks on Thanksgiving when you have no electricity, gasoline or heat.

When you vote for pols who believe in solar and wind blah, blah, and not coal and oil extraction and execution...well then you revert to cave man days.

Zero sympathy from a west coaster who lives among the loons of the likes of the north east (and are also ruining CA).

Wait til they start whining about Obamacare when they cannot get treatment during the cold season.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
