FEMA NYC and New Jersey Closed Due to Bad Weather!
maggie's notebook ^

Posted on 11/08/2012 6:39:22 AM PST by Perdogg

Can’t make this stuff up. People in the New York and New Jersey area devastated by Hurricane Sandy are without homes, or have homes but no electricity while sleet and snow is pounding the area. FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) disaster “recovery” centers are closed in some areas of New York City and New Jersey. New Jersey FEMA says they will reopen tomorrow (Thursday). Staten Island says buses serving as warming centers have disappeared.

It was never FEMA’s intent, nor any branch of government, to protect or serve the people.

It’s about control, not assistance. There is no government effort nor agency that is dedicated to assistance.

Well, call Obama and arrange another photo op. Apparently that makes everything all better.

My God, my attitude is bad right now... I’d probably get banned from FR for what I’d LIKE to say to those blue-balled blue-staters who, despite Obama’s and FEMA’s failure after Sandy, reelected Obama without blinking an eye.

Only useless in terms of the fiction that derived from katrina and the useless ass-boils of NO.

FEMA has never been in the assistance business, not chartered for that and never should be. Refer to post #2.

That said, it’s der Fuehrer’s fault.

Time to proclaim loudly and everywhere that it is now time for the POS kenyan to make good on all of those campaign promises.

Yep, you’re definitely not the only one with a Bad Attitude ;-)

Mostly, as my old work buddy used to say, “My give~a~shit meter is broke”.

I for one am not interested in helping them. They wanted their big government guy, then let them have him. Sometimes people have to hit rock bottom to see the truth. It’s called tough love.

Fox reporting Andrew Cuomo fired his Office of Emergency Management head because he diverted a crew to remove a tree from his driveway.

All while Obama watches scenes in 'real time' while Americans suffer, and then evidently orders FEMA to stand down!

Sound familar?

Correction, what we here in Jersey call 'country club' Republicans wanted him. Amazing the power of money and its influence on primaries! If we had our druthers it would have been Steve Lonagan.
