Fox: Staten Island people in the streets fighting one another for food, water, clothing
Fox News Live | 11/2/12

Posted on 11/02/2012 7:13:59 AM PDT by pabianice

The excremental liberal press is boycotting coverage of this to protect Obama but Fox is covering it. Staten Island has received zero help after four days. Bloomberg has stolen three huge generators to power marathon tents and given no help to the people of Staten Island. The entire borough is a ruined disaster. No food, no water, no gasoline, the homeless wandering across the island with no shoes, no socks, injured, starving, crying for help from camera crews. People fighting one another over dumpster garbage. Death toll rising.

Another Liberal success story.

I live here and none of this is surprising. NYC is a textbook story of what NO TO DO in most instances.

I say no, probably not. This is similar to the stories of the rapes in the stadium that were reported but never really happened.

Government help is the very least efficient help. It can even be a hindrance, because people sit and wait for it instead of helping themselves and their families before the situation becomes catastrophic.

Sounds like the Third World Utopia Barry has been touting. Well, New Yawk is a true blue state having elected scum like Hildabeast, and voting for Barry Benghazi in '08, so you 'Reap What You Sow' - and you better not be drinking a 20 oz Coke - Bloomie will have you hauled off!

Too bad that a lot more weren’t able to evacuate—but I don’t that anyone could have predicted the effect the storm had on NYC.

If people get hungry enough, they will go hunting.

Why not knock off some marathoners and Barbeque them up.

Start some fires for warmth, I’m sure the runners would like the smoke. Look good on camera too. Lots of trash can fires people huddling around them.

Isn’t Staten Island noticeably more “red” than the rest of the city? If so,that would explain a lot.

My brother is in East Rockaway - which got hammered.

No electricity, no fuel, no stores, no heat - no nothing since the storm. The entire area is literally dead-in-the-water.

By 4 days after Katrina Bush had taken over from an incompetent mayor and governor, and marshalled resources to evacuate 40,000 people from New Orleans

This was the President blamed by the NYC-based MEdia for failing leadership.

Where is blubber-baby Shep Smith now? Where is Whorealdo Rivera?

Bloomberg marshalled resources to run the NYC marathon and Christie walked the beaches with obama hugging people and obama is on the campaign trail

Yes but perhaps more than one of them, D or R, might have noticed the Island part of Staten Island as in ‘surrounded entirely by water.’

It isn’t Pitcairn but it’s still an island.

The generators are privately-funded and privately-owned, according to a marathon spokesman quoted by the Post:

The New York Road Runners Club, which organizes the world-famous race, is paying for the generators, which were supplied by Long Island-based On Site Energy for the massive, 80-yard-long tent.

"Too bad that a lot more weren’t able to evacuate..."

The problems is is the numbers we are dealing with. Let us say for instance 75% of the people on Staten Island left before the storm (I doubt it was that high)

That still is over 100,000 People left on the Island. They have no power or safe drinking water and the food is probably gone if it wasn't destroyed already. And Bloomburg is still gonna run a stupid Marathon that starts on their turf.

I know If I lived there I would be livid.

The other thing to realize is many of these people can't get to work if they even have jobs anymore (think how many businesses are destroyed in the tidal surge) They are soon gonna run out of money so they won't be able to buy stuff anyhow even if they could find some to buy.

This isn't Katrina. This is 30 Katrinas and we will find that Gub'ment won't be able to cope with the demand.

If my facts are correct isn’t Staten Island one of the boroughs? All disarmed citizenry thanks to Bloomberg.
No legal guns to defend yourself or property, you will end up getting arrested and face the courts and jail time after everything is settled, if you shot at a looter.

I can’t think of a worse place to live.

Those people need to be evacuated NOW and what is left of their property secured until services can be restored and clean up begin

There is no “shelter-in-place” in neighborhoods with this degree of damage. There are entire blocks gone. Restoring power is not their priority. It goes to the bottom of Maslow’s hierarchy

Since the Katrina democrats set the bar by placing total responsiblity for natural disaster on the POTUS (Bush) .... what is OBAMA’s plan for NYC and NJ?

Reverend Jesse Jackson claimed that racism was a factor in the slow government response, stating that “many black people feel that their race, their property conditions and their voting patterns have been a factor in the response.”

Commentator Lou Dobbs of CNN has claimed that local officials should bear some responsibility, saying that “the city of New [York] Orleans is 70% black, its mayor is black, its principal power structure is black, and if there is a failure to the black Americans, who live in poverty and in the city of New [York] Orleans, those officials have to bear much of the responsibility.”

Oh wait...that was what the media reported in 2005, but wait, it applies to New York (crickets....).

No subway system working and no gas is going to lead to a lot of violence - in an area that is already violent on a regular day to day basis.

Where is the wall to wall coverage? Check out the pictures in the sight below. Also look at the pics of the Rockaway area on the same sight. Looks a lot like New Orleans. Wondering why dems are still crowing about the Bloomberg endorsement. He looks like a fool.

I guess some intrepid souls will need to to hijack some busses, load them up, and get people out of there.
That is not a place to stay and wait for help.
By next week people will be dying from hypothermia and disease if no adult steps up and takes charge.

Since Mitt is helpless and obama is clueless, maybe Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani need to organize a private relief evacuation bridge and get people out of there to safe shelter.

Same on the Rockaway peninsula - plus fires - where my brother is. I haven't heard from him since Monday before the storm came ashore.

Bloomberg has stolen three huge generators ...

Claptrap. The generators were reserved for the marathon in advance and the rental fees paid by the New York Road Runners association, which organizes the marathon.

If that group wished to donate the generators for another use, that would be extremely generous of them, but the idea that failing to give others something you have paid for is "stealing" is Barack Obama thinking.

Articles said the generators were powering the media setup for the marathon. It would be funny if the organizers contributed the generators to relief efforts and let the media go without power!

Many of you who follow my post have seen me use this quote to describe what can happen in a grid down SHTF situation:

“Let me tell you something about humans, nephew: They’re a wonderful, friendly people - as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working.” “But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those friendly, intelligent, wonderful people...will become as nasty and as violent as the most blood-thirsty Klingon.” Quark from: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8)” (1998)

I have even gotten complaints I use it to much and that using a quote from a SciFi/Fantasy TV Program lessens the seriousness of the subject of preparedness.

Well read this quote from the AP story- Exasperation builds on Day 3 in storm-stricken NYC:”You can clearly tell at the office, or even walking down the street, who has power and who doesn’t,” said Jordan Spiro, who lives in the blackout zone. “New Yorkers may not be known as the friendliest bunch, but take away their ability to shower and communicate and you’ll see how disgruntled they can get.”

Sound familiar?

Having been through a couple of hurricanes, I can tell you the first question FEMA and the Red Cross ask is: Do you have insurance? If you answer yes, they look up at the line you have been standing if for the last hour, and say:”Next!”

Do you think there was any way this tidal surge could have been predicted in time for people to get out?

Living on the coast, which I did for a lot of my life—(TX)—we were more or less used to hurricanes and such, and could prepare for them. Then again, we usually had several days’ notice.

The way I understand it—and correct me if I am wrong—nobody predicated this tidal wave that ended up hitting NY............

Has this ever before happened that you know of?
