...right around Met Life stadium
WHY does this scene play out during every hurriane?
WHY don’t folks evacuate?
Is it because of the traffic?
That was pointed out to me just before Katrina - that the traffic was so horrible that folks would run out of gas and be stranded trying to evacuate.
Why did they have to sit on roofs? where were the boats?
Can’t those fools do anything right?
Prayers!!! It must be COLD there also.
Gov. Christie just said that it was not a levee but a natural berm the was overcome by the storm surge.
You have to be aware of where you live.
You have to be aware of the limits of your home.
Would you rather sit in your home where you have a generator, a tractor,a chain saw, your own supply of food and water, you are above the flood plain,or go to a shelter and place yourself at the mercy of the Government with a pack of strangers in a school building that was probably built by a low bidder?
I am noticing that any serious damage done by this storm is limited to a pretty tight area. NYC had some flooding, a bunch of row houses were burned down by the same fire in Queens, and now this levee. Anything else I’m missing?
Was this, at a national scale, a non-event? Seems like the Colorado fires were a MUCH worse disaster.
Why wasn't the Corp of Engineers prepared for this, the new the strom surge was coming for days?[/end DNC mode]
Why hadn't they increased the height of this levee?
Why wasn't Presidnt Obama more prepared for this?
Where is FEMA and the Coast Guard for these people?
Why wren't they pre-positioned to thos very site, knowing that a lvee could break?
This is exactly what they did to Bush during Katrina at every turn.
And Obama does nothing.
After the gov. told everyone to leave all the barrier islands, the mayor of AC told HIS PEOPLE to stay put.
It mayor Naygen all over again.
One thing to think about with Sandy...this one weather system, hurricane, Frankenstorm, whatever you call it, was producing flooding and hurricane wind conditions in New York City, heavy snow in the mountains of northeast Tennessee, and massive waves on Lake Michigan AT THE SAME TIME. That’s not “just a cat 1 hurricane” no matter how you slice it.
Bush broke another levy?? /jk
People still, allegedly, have freedom in this country.
The government is not on the hook for theft from your property if it survives one of these events.
It is not government's job to rescue you from your bad choices.
It is not government's job to reap the rewards of your good choices.
If one chooses to ride out an event like this they are on their own.
It is pretty simple...government (local, state, feral) makes an announcement that fire and police WILL NOT be responding to calls during an event other than actual fires or a crime in progress.
Simple. You are an adult and you make a choice. You reap the benefits or the consequences of your choice.
(and for those that cannot exist without the government tit, we get the added benefit of chlorinating the gene pool...they won't survive.)
Did Obama send Navy Divers to dynamite the levees?
The Oceans will begin to recede!
OBAMA LET THIS HAPPEN BECAUSE HE HATES WHITE PEOPLE!
