Outstanding job, Barack...
Fema I can understand. Where is the Red Cross?
You’re doing a great job Hussein.
I am surprised that obama hasn’t confiscated a million bottles of water from some mean and greedy water bottling company . . . or taken it from thirsty soldiers in afghanistan.
Do woman or minority owned vendors get preference?
These are the lamest bunch of conspiratorial shadowy overlords ever. I need a better nemesis.
When it came to distribution during hurricane Katrina, Walmart came through when others couldn’t.
The Free Market is more efficient than the Government?
I wonder if that frickin genius Bloomberg ever got the generators out of Central Park that were there for the marathon and moved them to the flood area? In the comment I read, he said he thought they’d have to go over to Jersey first for some kind of modification. Yeah, dumbass, they have different power in jersey...
FEMA needs to spend more time and money prepping for disasters (food, water, emergency supplies) and less on military weapons, ammunition, $300,000 Armored Assault vehicles and Fascist plans to lock up Bitter Clingers.
Finally heard from a dear friend in Long Island - he of course is without power but was somewhat prepared. With no power he hasn’t heard 1/2 of this crap that is going on.
He said it looks like freakin Beirut there, as I can surmise from the photos I’ve seen.
And yet the media does what it does best - hides the truth.
“The agency [FEMA} appears to have been unprepared to distribute bottled water...”
Give FEMA a break. Distributing bottled water is a fairly complex task.
I mean it is so volatile it could, uh, oh well....
You know, because it has such a short shelf life, uh, oh well....
But really you don’t want it falling into the wrong hands, uh, I guess that’s really not, oh well....
I take that back. A trained monkey could hand out bottles of water.
This reminds me of the Katrina “ice” capades.
The root of the problem isn’t in procuring more cases of bottled water. The issue is to deliver a commonly used commodity at the least cost with most rapid delivery to a broad area.
Use you existing pipelines and fire mains.
Establish watering points.
Issue 5 gal cans and provide the water freely, then govt picks up the tab to pump the water.
What next? Try to replace sanitary sewers and toilets by handing out pallets of plastic ziplock bags and Handi-Wipes?
Our society has become too much of a drive-thru society and not enough hands-on entrepreneurs.
