Get people on the scene, and shout this from the rooftops!

As people suffer, the coercive political power which unions are imposing on citizens through this Administration's policies are now being imposed to further punish innocent victims of a storm. Just a taste of things to come under an Administration they control.

And the NY Marathon goes on, with numerous generators sitting idle, able to power 400 homes in affected areas, until Sunday for media usage.

WTF!

People are still posting this story?

Doesn’t anyone read current post before posting new threads.

Not just this issue. Usually find five threads on same thing.

Seems like the union thugs are more concerned that these workers will cost them OT dollars than they are about getting NJ customers back on line.

Sad, isn’t it? I grew up in hurricane country. We FED volunteers when they came to help us. Seems common sense that in times of crisis, there is no competition, only colleagues.

Remember driving from Huntsville, Al to Franklin, Ky to get a generator after the terrible tornado outbreak from a couple of years ago. Passed truck after truck after truck going the other direction to help get Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee put back together. It was an exciting sight.

Damned Jersey union thugs.

Katrina: "Where's Bush?"
Sandy:    "Where's the governor?

Saturday and Sunday the temperatures in the affected areas are going to dip into the 30s. The union thugs seem not to care about the people that will freeze to death.

More democrats will have more blood on their hands.

And we were grateful....and still are! Without power for 5 days, but our area was skimmed around by the tornadoes. Other areas were devastated.

My daughter and her husband live in Northport, just outside Tuscaloosa. We were there a couple of weeks ago. The perimeter around the UA campus is still not completely restored, but it is getting there. Unfathomable the amount of destruction.

Unions are shadow government and are controlled by communists leaders. King Obama is a communists and his contributions to union controlled business proves who he is.

Yep. ‘The Finger of God’ as they call it really ploughed through T-Town. There is some footage of it on YT. Just breaks my heart.

Always will have a soft spot in my heart for the guys from Alabama power.
They got us up and running after hurricane Gustav down here.
We were out for a week, had to use the generator only at night because gas was hard to come by.
Had a bunch of snapped power poles up and down highway 1.
One of the guys told me that most of our power poles should have been replaced 20 years ago according to date stamped on them.
Never saw an *Entergy* truck, our power provider, at all.
Those guys from Alabama did a great job and did it fast.
