DemSlut and 0 supporter Soledad O'Brien to the Delaware governor during Sandy reporting:
"So you think the state of Delaware can provide all that assistance without FEMA? Because you know, that is what Mitt Romney said - that FEMA should be returned to the states. Do you think you can get by without FEMA?"
Delaware Gov., with that leading question, obliged- "No, that is ridiculous, FEMA has a lot of resources, blah blah blah..."
Soledad still reprensting the 0 campaign, shamelessly politicizing the Sandy storm coverage and needs to be shamed for it on the air.
Soledad, is that what they call her? She’s named for a prison ! This explains a lot.
It is an SOS (Special Ops Speaks) video. Great guys!
Why do have campaign laws? It’s obvious they have placed political plants in the media.
At first I thought it might be a black Conservative, commenting on the double-standard -- but it turns out it was a pro-Obama guy basically saying Romney should get off stage and allow Obama to have 100% of the storm-related media coverage.
I hate these people.
Look at the difference between Romney’s response and Obama’s response:
Obama, I need to stop campaigning so that I can control the government response to Sandy (even though I have a FEMA director and layer upon layer of bureaucrats to handle all of this)!
Romney, I will stop campaigning and I want you to send your help and money towards helping the people of the northeast!
One says, let us, we the people, help our brothers and sisters in need. The other says, let me use this opportunity to LOOK like I actually care.
I expect that we’ll also hear more babbling from the libs about how Sandy “proves” that their global warming “theories” (heh fairy tales) are correct. They act as though there was no such thing as a hurricane prior to the Industrial Revolution.
Here is an Obama quote that applies equally to Soedad:
“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully,” Obama wrote in his memoir, “Dreams From My Father.” “The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”
Black blood is something that runs strong in people of mixed race.Probably because they are accepted more readily than in the white race.Most carry around a bitter burden that they belong to neither race.
What do you expect from an Affirmative-American?
Pray for America
She is going to be on suicide watch next Tuesday.
If Katrina was Bush’s fault, then isn’t Obama at fault for Sandy?
Nearly $43 million settlement proposed over FEMA trailers
By the CNN Wire Staff

(CNN) — Companies that made and set up trailers used as emergency housing after Hurricane Katrina have agreed to a nearly $43 million settlement with people who say they were hurt by formaldehyde in the units.
FEMA gives away $85 million of supplies for Katrina victims
FEMA gave away about $85 million in household goods meant for Hurricane Katrina victims, a CNN investigation has found.
The material, from basic kitchen goods to sleeping necessities, sat in warehouses for two years before the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s giveaway to federal and state agencies this year.
James McIntyre, FEMA’s acting press secretary, said that FEMA was spending more than $1 million a year to store the material and that another agency wanted the warehouses torn down, so “we needed to vacate them.”
Rarely had the failure of the federal government been so apparent and so acute. On August 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew leveled a 50-mile swath across southern Florida, leaving nearly 200,000 residents homeless and 1.3 million without electricity. Food, clean water, shelter, and medical assistance were scarce. Yet, for the first three days, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which is responsible for coordinating federal disaster relief, was nowhere to be found. And when FEMA did finally arrive, its incompetence further delayed relief efforts. Food and water distribution centers couldn’t meet the overwhelming need; lines literally stretched for miles. Mobile hospitals arrived late. In everything it did, FEMA appeared to live up to the description once given to it by South Carolina Sen. Ernest Hollings: “the sorriest bunch of bureaucratic jackasses I’ve ever known.”
I’m still trying to find out what a “structural feminist” is.
LOL there will be a bunch of people on suicide watch Tuesday.
Soledad, Chrissy, Rachel, Juan, Geraldo,Bob Beckle.
It should be fun to watch.
Structuralism is a philosophical school which holds that all aspects of culture are connected together by underlying frameworks of thought that are not always explicitly expressed. So a structuralist feminist believes that pretty much every cultural expression (customs, advertisements, family life, art, etc.) is a hidden expression of male domination.
If the answer is measured in dollars, since the federal government has the monopoly on the ability to create dollars out of thin air, then the question is downright silly. The federal government can create an infinite number of dollars, but no state can.
But this entirely misses the point. Every dollar that we accept from any government must come from somewhere. Since almost all states must balance their budget every fiscal year, the State must turn to the real creators of real wealth, the citizen, and ask (in a political sense) for the money via taxation with their consent.
But when we accept a dollar from the federal government, since it runs a budget deficit, each additional dollar must come from borrowing or inflating the currency, since the federal government is not willing to sell any capital assets to raise the money.
In short, by accepting federal dollars, we embezzle the funds from all holders of dollars. We rob the collective wealth-bank of private wealth stored in the US currency. We put the burden of helping localized victims on everyone, even if they don’t want to help. We also increase the power of the federal government at the expense of the local aid giver.
We also give politicians the opportunity to expand their power beyond what we ever dreamed they could.
For example: FEMA has a Youth Corps.
Obama FEMA Corp recruits conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930s Germany
Now, it is a long way from just wanting to help people in an emergency to having a standing army of uniformed young people ready to be dispatched at the command of a bureaucrat. What stops such bureaucrat from calling out the Youth Corps to help in ways that are politically expedient for one party? Not much. Or to help suppress the free expression of political opinion by those who oppose the party in power? Not much.
In fact we know that the party in power does not hesitate to run interference when it has to. We only have to look at the voter intimidation campaign run by the Black Panthers and how the Holder Justice Department refused to investigate that crime as a good example.
Government that is big enough to help us in any emergency is big enough to run our lives when there is no emergency.
