Forgotten by FEMA:
Volunteers step up in
storm-ravaged NYC borough

Fox News, by Perry Chiaramonte, Joshua Rhett Miller

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/8/2012 2:17:40 PM

Volunteers and disaster victims have taken rescue, recovery and security into their own hands on New York's storm-ravaged borough of Staten Island, where they say FEMA has forgotten them. Already without power for more than a week in the wake of superstorm Sandy, hard-hit residents of the borough's South Shore braved a nor'easter Wednesday night, many -- perhaps hundreds -- huddling in condemned homes and ignoring orders to evacuate out of fear looters would take what little Mother Nature has left them. "FEMA packed up everything yesterday and left the area,"

In all honesty, I cannot think of a region of this nation that more than deserves the response they are getting from their "Nanny Government". How's all that cold weather working for you socialist pukes? Hang in there. It is only going to get worse.

Don't ask me for any donations to the Red Cross or anyone else on your behalf. Ask your Uncle Obama and your Uncle Chris.

I had to hold my nose to donate (never to Red Cross), but they do need help. Beck is right about letting them see the private donations and compare it to government. You can't let Occupy Wallstreet types fill the void. That's what the Muslim Brotherhood did to gain power in the Middle East.

Sorry for you guys but we have our own big problems here. Our church is contributing to the effort. I hope it helps. Obummer doesn't care about people unless it does something for him. FEMA is like an insurance company, not like a fire dept. Don't ever expect FEMA to be a first responder and don't expect specific help from them. Lessons hard learned but easily forgotten.

Re post #1: You should do some research. the borough of Staten Island voted for McCain in 2008 and Romney this time around. This is payback from the federal government and the media is ignoring it. And if you think this is bad just wait until you need a costly operation under Obamacare and the death panel tumbles to the fact that you're a registered Republican.

Having been through several Cat 5 storms I find the complaining by these Socialists to be amusing. The same problem exists in the third world countries. The locals all waited for the government to bail them out while the people who where successful in their lives, both private and business, who built their own businesses and in general pay the tax bills always took care of their own problems. It is a common sight to see the locals with blue tarps on their houses for years after the storm passed while the successful and ambitious generally get their properties repaired in short order. It's a cultural thing.

(From SILive.com)
"President Barack Obama made White House history on Tuesday night, becoming just the fourth Democrat to win the Island in a presidential election since 1944.

In a squeaker over Republican Mitt Romney, Obama took the Island with 67,524 votes, or 50.4 percent, according to final Associated Press numbers.

Romney, whom many expected to win the "red borough," had 66,420 votes, or 49.6 percent.

They should have taken matters into their own hands a long time ago. That is exactly why we are saddled with the loser communist for another 4 years - people still believe it is the government's job to take care of them even when it is glaringly obvious that they are too incompetent to do so.

Even conservatives forget. FEMA was never designed to be a "first responder". The actual on the ground response was always to be the State, local agencies, National Guard. In this case the affected States don't seem to be too concerned or we would see many more National Guard troops and equipment. Perhaps resistance from the Unions?

I agree that FEMA is not a first responder but it has been more than a week. It is time for the second response. The Red Cross certainly should be there. Remember how Romney's donation collection was sneered at by MSNBC? I bet it would come in handy now. If I were Romney, I'd drive my campaign bus right down there and start handing out donations.

One more thing... I thought Obama had this all sorted out in the situation room as the storm rolled in. One more endless example of how he takes credit but never receives the blame.

And where is Mayor Bloomberg while all this is going on?

If the cold, suffering, residents of Staten Island want to get their mayor's attention, they should march en masse toward New York's City Hall and deploy themselves at the restaurants in the region, then light up the smelliest cigarettes and cigars they can find and puff away.

Soon, Nanny Bloomberg's health Gestapo will show up, and the Staten Islanders can then make their complaints about the poor post-Sandy services they've been receiving and finally get some food, heat, and a good night's sleep in a New York jail.

Look, I do have compassion for those who are suffering, regardless of how hard nosed I sounded in that first post. But at some point, people need to recognize that it is their responsibility to look out for their own welfare and safety. I spent my career in the Fire Service busting my a** to save other peoples a**, so I know just how little people take it upon themselves to prepair , not just for storms and such, but economic problems as well.
Seems so many have deferred their welfare to this nefarious group of individuals referred to as "our government". Let me break this to you gently, all "our government" cares about is their own standard of living, your money through taxation, and your votes to keep them in power. The French underclass eventually figured this out and as the ruling classes heads started to hit the ground via the guillotine, even some of them realized they had stepped in doodoo, but alas too late. The rest is history, and it seems history needs repeating right here in the former USA.

I am from Jersey, and still live here. I will not do another thing for the coast.

I am still disgusted that my innate conservatism-read concern for all people- made me; without thinking or hesitation, drive my own generator down to Spring Lake Heights to lend ot an old college friend who is a 2nd generation Iron Worker Union rep.
While he has NO PROBLEM letting MY child suffer the policies of his party, I could not allow HIS kids to freeze.

The announcement on Friday by Will Weatherford, the speaker of Florida´s House of Representatives, marked the biggest concession yet by the state´s Republican leaders to protesters´ demands for a top-to-bottom review of the law, which allows people in fear of serious injury to use deadly force to defend themselves rather than retreat.

President Barack Obama has the summer blues. Obama is facing a sluggish economy, low job approval numbers and a combative opposition party focused on dismantling Obamacare. While rainy summer days in Washington and lengthy speeches by members of Congress and the president have become the norm, no real progress and no new proposals by the president have been made to help improve the state of the U.S. economy. The president gave a one-hour speech last week in Illinois talking about his plans to help boost the economy, and he stated that he would lay out more

This week, the Daily Beast contacted and harassed private citizens who made contributions to Sarah Palin´s political action committee, SarahPAC. In doing so, the outlet attempted to also weaken her organization by smearing it in the eyes of those most responsible for ensuring Palin´s free-market populist message and conservatism is widely disseminated. During the first half of 2013, a political off-year in which there are few elections, Palin´s political action committee spent $35,000 more than it took in. The Daily Beast seized on that number and tried to convince donors to SarahPAC that Palin was defrauding them by

Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."
