Skip to comments.Hurricane Sandy: Staten Island Survivors
Posted on 11/21/2012 7:15:33 PM PST by Kartographer
As we head into the Thanksgiving weekend, thousands of families in the northeast face a difficult holiday season. For those still reeling from the effects of Superstorm Sandy, emotions are still raw and futures are uncertain. Reuters photographer Mike Segar visited Staten Island last week, spending time with residents hard-hit by Sandy. He collected not just their portraits but their stories, as they stood amid the wreckage of what had been their homes, businesses, and places of worship. While there was anger and sadness on display, there was also a sense of gratitude for the outpouring of help from afar, and the groundswell of support from friends and neighbors.

I think you need to take a break, take a vacation, drink some wine, clear your head and then come back fresh. :-)
It seems you’re engaging in a little too much chest thumping yourself to be all that upset about chest thumping If FR is so bothersome to you, no one is holding a gun to your head.
Who owns this “SHTF Plan” website you’re forever posting to FR threads anyway? One might get the impression that you do.
BS I am standing up to a person that call me a liar not once but multiple times and who now after being proven wrong isn’t man enough to admit it. Not only did you call me a lair, but you then proceed to lie yourself cover-up the fact that you were wrong.
The truth will set you free. I am just trying to set your free.
Not only do I NOT own it, but the my Preparedness Manual is down loadable for free. I don’t make a cent off of it.
As far as chest thumping well I don’t take being called a lair well. Tell me how well do you take it?
Where’s the best local place to donate clothes? If one were to get a coat drive going, or so. By your sign-off, I assume you are familiar with a Cath church with an affiliated elementary school.
By the way if my post of articles fro SHTF Plan bother you so much why do your read them? Someone holding a gun to your head?
You seemed to be the one making the most noise.
Take a hike.
I would say the Salvation Army. I have repeatedly read that they are often the first on hand in many disasters and do the most. By the way there was an article on FR about the need for underwear. People always think about donating clothes, but never underwear.
If someone called me a “lair” I wouldn’t have the faintest idea what they were talking about.
“Free” is never free. You’re a one note wonder driving traffic from FR to a very limited, specific set of sites, one in particular. You are profiting from FR, imho, so the best thing for you to do would be to cease with the criticism of the site from which you’re deriving so much traffic. Just shut up.
I don’t intentionally read your threads, by the way, and never click through when I stumble into one of them due to viewing FR on the “comments” tab.
You're right. I saw it too and defended against it.
I pinged repeatedly
As far as call me a lair your own post:
“The first thread you linked your comment was removed, the second you posted you made no comment(cut)”
You say my comment was removed yet its there and I posted it. You say I didn’t comment yet I did and I posted it. What do you call that? the truth?
I don’t know what to tell you, here it is:
Superstorm Sandy slams into New Jersey coast, sends surge of seawater against NYC

Sandy knocked out power to at least 3.1 million people, and New York’s main utility said large sections of Manhattan had been plunged into darkness by the storm. Water pressed into the island from three sides. Just before its centre reached land, the storm was stripped of hurricane status, but the distinction was purely technical, based on its shape and internal temperature. It still packed hurricane-force wind, and forecasters were careful to say it remained every bit as dangerous to the 50 million people in its path. As the storm closed in, it smacked the boarded-up big cities of the Northeast corridor Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York and Boston with stinging rain and gusts of more than 85 mph. It also converged with a cold-weather system that turned it into a superstorm, a monstrous hybrid consisting not only of rain and high wind but snow. Sandy made landfall at 8 p.m. near Atlantic City, which was already mostly under water and saw a piece of its world-famous Boardwalk washed away earlier in the day.

Lazamataz, Humblegunner, eaker, as Semi-Official Blog Police can you assure this gentleman that I am not a ‘Blog Pimp’?

You did an excellent job at something you didnt me to do. So when was you last experience with something that knocked out the power to three million people?
Sounds bad yet there are a solid group of FReepers who will thump their chest and tell you it isnt all that bad or outright hint you are exaggerating. Their seem to be a small but vocal contingent that I wouldnt be surprise to hear them go up to the Lord after Armageddon and say: Lord why all the hype in the Book of Revelations? I mean it wasnt all that bad.
Worse yet is all of the ODS Ive seen here on FR. Yes Bama is horrible, yes he HAS GOT TO GO, but these people act like Bama either conjurered up the storm or the whole thing is some Machiavellian plot out of a bad suspense novel. LIFE goes on, things happen. The storm doesnt know or care that its election time or what BAMA has done to this country.
I wouldnt be surprised to hear of people who believed so much that the hurricane is just some leftist plot that they are caught unprepared for the storm and dying as a result of it crying out Its Obamas fault with their last breath!
Some seem to have reached a point where if they go to the doctor next week and he tells them that they have cancer it will be Obamas fault! Or if they have a flat tire on the way to work next week it will be Obamas fault! If you step on a crack and break your mothers back it will be Obamas fault!
To me this is the talk, methods and the mindset of the leftist. Its the same shill BS they spewed against George Bush. I thought we are better than that. I know we should be better than that. I am sure that we can be better than that.
The other thing I notice is that is the me, me, me mindset so many seem to be taking with this storm. Hell this storm will most likely KILL people and heres people who are supposedly conservatives sounding like leftist. Everything is me me me. How is the Hurricane going to effect the election? And so on its sickening. So people are going to die and homes get lost and peoples lives get turned upside down and inside out, well thats bad but how is it going to effect me? I guess it doesnt matter what losses occur as long as it doesnt effect the election. Seems many on FR have their priorities screwed up.

Thanks FreeReign, but it seems we just imagined it.
Here’s the first of the three links you posted to me.
Now you can answer one simple question if you have the guts.
Did the Mod remove your comment #1 or not?
You hijacked your own thread because you’re pissed. Was that your goal?
