Two weeks and no electricity: Brooklyn citizens feel abandoned after Hurricane Sandy

CBS This Morning reports that the people who live in Gerritson Beach, Brooklyn, still have no power and are still awaiting insurance inspectors to come. They say it’s been 2 weeks and they feel completely abandoned.

    Elections have consequences NY, elections have consequences. Why don’t you ring up Barky Boy and ask him why he LEFT YOU BEHIND!

    • BRAVO! My sentiments exactly. This election has managed to not only smarten me up but jade me as well. My human sympathy is waning fast. Think New Yorkers are still happy they voted Bloomberg in for a third term? How about those union utility workers? Love them still? How about those taxes you pay and getting no relief? Still great?!

      Sorry about the rant.

      • conservativemama

        I join you in your rant. I feel the same way. You vote for liberals, then suffer the consequences. I too am running out of human sympathy for the people who who have a direct hand in the destruction of this country.

        • Yehiel

          When Koch was beaten in the Democratic primary for mayor by Dinkins it was suggested that he run on the Liberal line. He would have beaten Dinkins in the general elections. He refused and said ” the people must be punished.” They were.
          They continue to be (see Obama).

      • Orangeone

        I love your freedom of expression!

      • Rob Silver

        This is, of course, all George W Bush’s fault.

        • LCPLDMT0331

          LOL…what isn’t?

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Well, as much as I feel their pain, this is what it’s like when you give in to the Nanny State: government — by its very nature — cannot provide all.

  • But, but I thought dear leader was doing a good job? I feel for these folks, I really do- and I pray they will get some relief soon, but as for the rest, this is what many more will suffer because of choices during the most critical election of our time. As I tell my son, Consequences folks, they happen.

    • Orangeone

      Their leadership refused to allow the National Guard to assist because they carry guns, they turned away utility companies from elsewhere because they wouldn’t join their union, they are ticked at the Katrina victims and others for sending supplies. All they want is money. Perhaps they should have the Red Cross audited to see how much was donated for #Sandy but diverted elsewhere because donations are not guaranteed to where the donor selects the Red Cross decides.

      • anneinarkansas

        I heard a man say earlier that the Red Cross gave him molded granola bars.
        Some of these stories are hard to believe, tragic.
        Never mention Katrina and Bush againl!

        • Orangeone

          Here’s breaking!  Red Cross wants donations for Turkey.  There is nothing that guarantees US donations for #Sandy will go to #Sandy let alone remain in the US. Is the Red Cross ending #Sandy donations to Turkey?

          • colliemum

            Oh great – help the muslim fugitives, who could have been helped by donations form the super-rich oil states for some time now!
            But don’t help the victims of Sandy – they’re white, they don’t count, and anyway, they’ll have forgotten by the time the next elections come round that it’s their dem government who let them rot.

            • Orangeone

              I’m sure they are blaming Romney for challenging Barky or the GOP House for not providing unlimited funding.  It’s always someone else’s fault.

              • colliemum

                It’s first of all the fault of the GOP and all of their members of congress, and then it’s the fault of somebody else.
                A dem governor, President, senator, is never ever to blame.

          • Patriot_Ginger

            There are 4 very good organizations that are actively involved and you can designate where you want the funds to go. Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Blessing, Joyce Meyer Ministries and Mercury One.

            • Patriot077

              I believe the Salvation Army also allows you to designate the relief effort you support. It did when I donated during the Tennessee flooding but that was a couple years ago.

            • tvlgds

              I do donate to Samaritan’s Purse when I have funds.

          • Rshill7

            They should leave that to the Red Crescent.

            • Conservative_Hippie

              Well said!

          • Do not give money for Turkey. Hubby spent several weeks there doing relief. All money will go to Islamist government. The area hit by earthquake is mainly Kurdish so government is letting rot..literally. They won’t help them and are actually throwing the politicians from the area into jail for trying to get some relief. Even the fire department got tossed into jail for giving relief.

            • Orangeone

              And herein lies the issue.  US people donated to the Red Cross for #Sandy, yet the Red Cross can divert those donations to Turkey.  There is no requirement they provide the aid to #Sandy.  They are slick in their wording: Funds are needed for disasters like hurricane Sandy.  And we continue to fall into that trap. The same thing happened with Katrina and Haiti

              • We also need to pound our politicians about going on the news and pushing Red Cross.

                • Orangeone

                  Amen!  At the Ryan rally in MN, we groaned when he said Red Cross and he caught on and said Salvation Army to rousing applause!

        • Yehiel

          War time veterans do not contribute to the Red Cross. In combat areas they wanted money for coffee and donuts. The Salvation Army was giving it for free. After 9/11 the Red Cross sold the donated blood (thousands were standing in line to give blood) to Europe. As someone said ” I don’t give money to any organization whose president makes more money than the President of the US and has a bigger office.”

      • tvlgds

        The exact same thing happened in New Orleans!

        As for donations!

        The American Red Cross
        President and CEO Marsha J. Evans’
        salary for the year was $651,957 plus expenses

        It is called the March of Dimes because
        only a dime for every 1 dollar is given to the needy.

        The United Way
        President Brian Gallagher
        receives a $375,000 base salary along with numerous expense benefits.

        CEO Caryl M. Stern receives
        $1,200,000 per year (100k per month) plus all expenses including a ROLLS ROYCE.
        Less than 5 cents of your donated dollar goes to the cause.

        CEO and owner Mark Curran profits $2.3 million a year.
        Goodwill is a very catchy name for his business.
        You donate to his business and then he sells the items for PROFIT.
        He pays nothing for his products and pays his workers minimum wage! Nice Guy.
        $0.00 goes to help anyone! Stop giving to this man.

        Instead, give it to ANY OF THE FOLLOWING

        DO SOME GOOD:

        The Salvation Army
        Commissioner, Todd Bassett receives a small salary of only
        $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 billion dollar organization.
        96 percent of donated dollars go to the cause.

        The American Legion
        National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary.
        Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

        The Veterans of Foreign Wars
        National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary.
        Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

        The Vietnam Veterans Association
        National Commander receives a $0.00 zero salary.
        Your donations go to help Veterans and their families and youth!

        Make a Wish: For children’s last wishes.
        100% goes to funding trips or special wishes for a dying child.

        St. Jude Research Hospital
        100% goes towards funding and helping Children with Cancer who have no insurance and cannot afford to pay.

        Ronald McDonald Houses
        All monies go to running the houses for parents who have critical Children in the hospital.
        100% goes to housing, and feeding the families.

        Lions Club International

        • Orangeone

          I knew you had posted this before, thank you for posting again.  I began tweeting those salaries last time and the Red Cross went nuts!
          And the language is interesting.

          Red Cross:  Donations are needed for disasters such as Katrina (hurricane Sandy now). [no guarantee it will even remain in US let alone to cause you support] Salvation Army:  All donations remain in your community.

          Every red kettle I pass gets $2 this year instead of my usual $1!

        • I will no longer give to the VFW because they got Barbara Boxer re-elected. There are other reasons for not giving to certain organizations. Koman is another. St. Jude does use it’s money for the children but takes the prestige they get from that to support progressive causes.

          • tvlgds

            There are several reasons I won’t give to the VFW, mainly due to personal experiences my father has had with them. I had a monthly stipend going to St Judes for years but stopped it this year for those reasons and a few others. They still hound me constantly, which just reinforces my reason not to give to them again. I’ll go with Fisher House, Samaritan’s Purse, etc. I have a ton of stuff piled up to give away and normally Goodwill is the path of least resistance because it’s close, but I’ll have to make an effort to get it to Salvation Army or one of the local domestic abuse centers where it will go to the people who need it rather than being sold for profit.

            • I totally agree. Unfortunately while it takes more effort it is one of many paths that we have to travel to root out corruption and clean up our society. Salvation Army is my favorite charity as well as a few military ones that are carefully checked out. We also do a lot through Freemasons. I think many of these charities started out with good intentions but became drunk with power.

      • Once again reading my mind!!!

  • sDee

    It does not matter if it is disaster response or education – the Federal government does nothing but confiscate resources we citizens already have and return to us half of what they they took along with a big bureaucratic stick. Better off we keep them in the first place.

    Abandoning state, local, community and self-reliance for refuge in politicians’ promises, is foolhardy.

    Trusting the Federal government is trust misplaced.

  • Sandra123456

    Isn’t it way past time that we have a national project to put all power lines underground?

    • denbren52

      Shovel ready.

      • Orangeone

        The only thing shovel ready are the occupants of our WH.

    • Orangeone

      That will help but is extremely expensive and still subject to natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes because they lines rip.

      • anneinarkansas

        Correct. Ours are underground and during an Ice Storm in 2009 we went 27 days withour power here…a nightmare!
        Obama was in then and FEMA did not come!
        We took care of our own while we were suffering at the same time.

        • Patriot077

          The Pacific Northwest had a terrible windstorm in Dec 2006 that took out power for many. Some were lucky and got it back in 5 days. My neighborhood took 10 days but others went even longer. My heart goes out to the people in the NE because at least we don’t have extremely cold temps here yet it was still plenty miserable.

        • My Dad is a retired electrical Engineer for Pacific, Gas, and Electric. He said it can be done and much more fool proof than overhead.

    • sDee

      What, and cut into the IBEW contracts?

      I was at a trade shoe in Vegas once – setting up a big booth for 3 days. We put all our trash in an empty box to keep things neat. The first morning, the janitorial crew came by and told us they would not take it because we needed to throw the trash on the floor. We did not – how ridiculous. The second morning we showed up and someone had emptied the box with two day’s trash onto the floor. The company next to us laughed and said it was a union contract – they get paid by the hour picking trash up from the floor.

    • spoken like someone who has NO IDEA what is involved with undergrounding utilities … get real. maybe you’d like a jetson’s style dome built over your city as well?

    • I have been advocating that for years.

    • Suzyqpie

      Oh are you referencing infrastructure? Shovel ready? Let me make one thing clear and make no mistake about it and let’s be honest. $864B, billion, in Pres 0bamas ARRA rebuild, improve, upgrade, was all waste & deceit. If the Porkulus money went to actually improve America……I’m wasting my keystrokes everyone reading here already knows it. Our govt has wasted $5T dollars in the last 4 years. Borrowed, spent, wasted. And the bacchanalia has not even slowed.

  • denbren52

    Can you imagine if the President were a Republican and something like this happened? Oh yeah, it did happen … except it was a category 5 hurricane that wiped out an entire geographical area instead of a no-longer-hurricane that struck NY and NJ. Depending on Big Brother government is never a good idea.

    • Orangeone

      Category 5 and the Corps of Engineers failed to maintain the federally-owned and governed dams!

      • Patriot077

        Wasn’t there some scandal about funds for those projects being misappropriated by the local governments?

        • Orangeone

          I don’t recall. Anyone know????

          • Challeron

            There must have been SOME reason why Louisiana changed to their first Republican governor since Reformation after Katrina.…

            • Yehiel

              Before Jindal the Democratic governors were elected to two terms. One in office. One in jail.

          • Patriot077

            I couldn’t find much on it orange, but here is a short clip that hints at some shenanigans. It sounds like inferior materials and construction design was a good part of the failures though the Corp of Engineers did their best to absolve themselves of any neglect.

            • Orangeone

              Thank you kind sir!

              • Patriot077

                I’m actually a “maam” but you are very welcome!

                • Orangeone

                  And I giggle when posters call me sir 🙂  Sorry PatriotSis!

                • Patriot077

                  No worries. My avatar is quite manly, but it is in honor of my Dad who was a real cowboy.

                • Orangeone


  • You voted for socialism, shut up and enjoy it!! Help will come when your government “knows” you need it… say next election cycle. Keep voting them in idiot!… And no “I don’t feel your pain!”

    • PhillyCon

      They still won’t see it this way. You are assuming these people have logical thought processes. LOL.

    • Yehiel

      In American urban areas the Stalin maxim persists. “it’s not who votes. It’s
      who counts the votes

  • Betsey_Ross

    It just makes sense that the ones that were able to get out and vote, voted for Bronco. These people have no brains. The cannot even make the synapse between brain cells work.

    • Yehiel

      and with ObamaCare it never will.

  • anneinarkansas

    A tragedy of course.
    I never want to hear the word Katrina again!

  • Rocco11

    What did the NY Slimes say, big storms call for big government? Yea, right.

    • PhillyCon

      LOL. However, most people who voted for Obama cannot connect the dots. It’s still Bush’s fault.

  • WordsFailMe

    Brooklyn is America

  • I’m waiting for BHO to hold a press conference blaming the FEMA response on the failures of the Bush administration. It’s like Mike Brown never left. Heckuva job!

    • Orangeone

      He’s holding a Press Conference in NY on the 14th to talk about the successes of his leadership in response to the disaster. Zero will make zero mention of the donations.

      • Suzyqpie

        48 hours from now we will hear,” let me be clear.” and the public buys it, and votes for it, and the press covers for it, and the wheel turns. I am so sick of hearing it that I can’t believe I’m saying it but it is so incredulous, if GWB blah blah blah. And the MSM has no shame ignoring the debris field. Oh well bye.

        • Orangeone

          Given the vast nationwide reports of voter fraud and that he rec’d 9,000,000 less votes, I’m thinking those other than the remaining kool-aid drinkers pay any attention, most turn off the TV

  • notebene

    I wonder how many of these people know that the unions stepped in and drove away help from the South? If they are cold and hungry, they should thank the unions, who helped them stay that way! I just don’t have much sympathy for folks, who voted for four more years of failure.

  • Landscaper

    Currently being in the Southeast I can tell everyone about two types of storms. Tornadoes can be predicted as way of a warning but are very hard to pin point on where and if they will touch down. Very distructive.
    Hurricanes on the other hand move slowly and people have a lot of advanced notice. Those who are in this area had plenty of time to get generators, fuel, water, food. Those who did not prepare should have left the target area.
    I feel badly for their suffering, but it’s a damn hurricane coming their way. What part of this did people not understand. Staying behind to prevent looters is not worth it.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      I agree, but what if they had no money or no where to go?

      • Landscaper

        Great question. Most needs are met by churches, civic organizations, etc. The gov. will NEVER be there because they can’t get their head out of {you know where} long enoughto solve a crisis. It takes 10 committee studies to decide if a city can change traffic light timing.

        • Conservative_Hippie

          Landscaper, since my last comment an amzing opportunity as opened for me. My company is involved with solving a housing problem for the Hurricane Sandy homeless that involves FEMA and I can assure you, at least, on my end we will do things ethically and financially sound. That is if they accept our services. But with my luck they will probably give the contract to a friend of a friend of an uncle whose sister knows Senator Joe Schmoe’s housemaid.

          So I guess that means that as a corrupt government institution like FEMA can do something right once in a while, lol.

    • PhillyCon

      I don’t think this is the issue. The issue is the sheer incompetance of the Long Island public utility and the government.

      People can prepare for a few days. But, what happens when the gas runs out for those generators? The food runs out? This is government incompetance … and since this standard was established when Bush was President, we need to apply that same standard to Obama and his FEMA. After all, we had Chris Christie promise us that everything will be handled, same with Cuomo and Obama.

      • Landscaper

        Agree, NEVER trust a gov. official. Where has Christie, Cuomo, Bloomberg and the rest slept at night? In a warm bed, with hot water to bathe and hot meals to eat, thats where.

      • Suzyqpie

        Operative words, “government incompetence.” Think Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, California, post office, Amtrak, may I Please remind any one who will listen, WE CAN NOT DEPEND ON GOVT NO MATTER WHAT THEY TELL US. I’ll now quit screaming, our govt sabotages us. Sorry it’s true, deal with it.

    • I would stay behind to prevent looters even if the house is half wrecked. Nobody is going to be stealing from my house if I can help it.

      • Landscaper

        No material posessions I have is worth our lives.

        • If you lived next door to me, I’d protect your house too.

  • that is so sad. this is ridiculous, the government can’t even help people recover from an emergency in two weeks, wtf.

    • Suzyqpie

      We are very busy with aid money to Syria. Google it.

  • Watchman74

    Which is all the more rubbish that Hurricane Sandy had anything to do with Obama’s re-election (as some would claim). He hasn’t done anything, but apparently they give peace prizes out for doing nothing now.

  • destroyer_of_moonbats

    i live in park slope brooklyn. luckily my area was not affected whats so ever. i can tell you that its utter mayhem around the devastated parts. i’ve been donating food, blankets and toiletries like crazy before some unsavory elements start to venture out and take rather than receive if you know what i’m saying.

  • Haywoodjbl

    We are much to busy helping other countries to help our own…….Shameful

    • Suzyqpie

      Good point Haywood, I was reading that we gave a million something to Syria, yea, Syria, today. Suffering Americans are not important to Pres 0bama who is looking for a new job in 4 yrs. And not here in America.

  • PhillyCon


    Please pray for these people regardless of party affiliation. My cousin who lives on Long Island and near the water, is being told she will not get power until Christmas. CHRISTMAS!

    She has lost two cars, and her bottom level is flooded.

    I had the radio on and this isn’t even mentioned during the news breaks. Obama is getting away with this along with everything else. Its sickening.

    • It’s a disgrace that in this modern country that this is STILL going on what 2 weeks AFTER the storm. You’d think we were Greece or something… We’re not! At least not YET!

      • Suzyqpie

        Hi Wolfie, suppose for a second the $864B stim-pkg-Porkulus-ARRA went for actual infrastructure improvement? What if it had funded actual improvements in the grid, the bridges, the subways, anything that improved America? ARRA went to campaign donors. That’s life in 0bamas America.

    • Did she vote for Obama or Cuomo? If no, then I will say a prayer for her. If yes, she got what she voted for!

  • PhillyCon

    Where are those reporters who were camped out in New Orleans? Why the silence and absence?

    • notebene

      The are still protecting the Imposter in Chief and coddling the unions. Thank the unions for turning help away in the name of keeping the work to themselves. In case you didn’t notice…Odumbo is too busy playing golf on Saturday to make sure help got to his supporters!

  • SineWaveII

    Quit complaining. Obama got re-elected. That’s all that matters.

    • Suzyqpie

      Got it. What’s with Cornell West calling Pres Obama a Republican in black face? I don’t get it. In the same rant Cornell West talked about “guaranteed income.” I’m clear on “guaranteed” and I’m clear on “income.” But what does Cornell West think gauranteed income is and what does, whatever it is, have to do with Pres Obama? Help me put here. I’m struggling on this one. I thought I knew the left mindset.

  • beezee777

    If Katrina was all Bush’s fault then whose fault is Sandy???? That’s what I thought, crickets from Pravda!!!

  • Orangeone

    A little O/T but for those who loved Beau Davidson’s Blessed YouTube video for the military I posted, here is his “The Prayer”. I think we all need to listen to this one today. Please share with family and friends to support this great conservative artist!

    • 4:22 seconds of beauty! Lovely! I shared it on my Facebook and tweeted it! I saved it to my computer too. 🙂

      • Orangeone

        Thank you Wolfie!  You should follow him on Twitter.  He’s a great conservative and helped Mitt Romney!

  • It’s Bush’s fault! Isn’t that default argument when Libtards get caught being useless?!

    • Suzyqpie

      All day every day 7/24/365 the power of the MSM. I just want to live long enough to see a republican drone fleet commander picking off targets from the kill list. Can you imagine the outrage it drone technology had been in the hands of GWB?

  • DoctorZhivago_2

    Hope and change! Ain’t it wonderful.

  • Juan_Rico

    Impossible. Obama visited the site and assured us the problem was being solved. Ipso-facto there can BE no problem!!! The ONE has pronounced it so. And all the polls told us what a wonderful job he did on the Sandy response. How could they be wrong? Answer: They aren’t wrong of course. Clearly these people are all lying to hurt our Messiah’s reputation!

  • Hmmm, doesn’t Spike Lee live in Brooklyn. Must be all those darn racists, like Bush, that want all these poor people to suffer. But, you say, Bush isn’t president? Yes, that’s right, we have a black president. So to use Spike Lee’s logic, does that mean Obama hates the white people in Brooklyn? I’m surprised Spike isn’t around to scream at our president for NOT coming to the rescue of these people. Hmmm, I wonder why that is?

    • Suzyqpie

      Who is spike lee?

  • tvlgds

    It was MONTHS after Katrina!

    • Challeron

      And Democrats were in power there, too.

      What guarantees do you have that it won’t be months here before somebody listens to Pete King and brings in the Military Engineers to do what LIPA clearly can’t?

  • db_cooper_II

    Dear Barry, Mike and Chris. Only RESULTS matter. And people without shelter, without power, without hot food are not the RESULTS to be proud of.

    • Suzyqpie

      Hi db, liberals don’t have to deal with results, learn from experience, consider the evidence, apply logic, or worry about the consequences. It’s a totally liberating experience. Give a speech, let me be clear, banalities, cliches, & platitudes are substitutes for performance. All day everyday. And your health insurance premiums will be reduced by $2500. And you didn’t build that chump.

  • Hubby just got back last night from working relief efforts in NY for over a week. It’s a mess and all of it can be blamed on bureaucracy created and voted for by liberals. Yeah New Yorkers…keep voting the same thing over and over again and expect any result that isn’t disastrous.

  • conservativemama

    The always inefficient government at work. Oh yeah. Get read for Obamacare.

    • DebbyX

      Talkin’ about obamacare. I have a friend in our payroll dept. who leaked, I mean told me that the company is changing insurance plans, and not for the better.

      How do YOU spell obamacare?

      • Suzyqpie

        Hi DebbieX, my premiums have not gone down by the $2500 Pres 0bama said that they would. I’m guessing the failure to see premium reductions are GWBs fault. GW retained a whole lot of power.

  • s_c_f

    Clearly George Bush is to blame.

  • I reckon President Downgrade really doesn’t want to know about these folks’ problems: it might seriously affect his golf game.

  • How about that. It turns out that relying on the gov’t for lifes essentials is a poor survival strategy…

  • Oh Please,Stop bitching,HE WON.All the rest of this noise is just a waste of breath,HE WON.FEMA is a jobs program,not a real entity with a mission,HE WON.Call the Red Cross if you want help,HE WON.

      Really? Did you feel the same about FEMA when the let down the people in LA after Katrina?

      • Suzyqpie

        The name Ray Nagin rings a Bell. I can’t remember why. Something keeps reminding me that Ray Nagin was the point guard in NOLA.

          …and a parking lot full of yellow school buses????????

          • Suzyqpie

            Hi poljunkie, yippee, which the democrats succeeded in hanging around GWBs neck. No indictment of boots on the ground in LA. One of the sorriest betrayals of reality I’ve ever witnessed from the MSM.

    • Challeron

      Typical Librul mindset: I got mine; screw you.…

    • He “won” (stole the election) WE LOST and you, being a Libtard are too dumb to know why! Now go home, your village is missing it’s idiot!

      • Suzyqpie

        Hi wolfie, I know, I’m late to the party. Tucked in there from Rich is a conservative message. FEMA is a jobs program, their debris field is huge. Where has FEMA ever delivered organization and a pictue of assistance. I’ll answer, no where. They proliferate govt liavathan disfunction where ever they go. If you really need help, call Red Cross, private philanthropy. I don’t need to remind you, he did win.

    Instapundit posts something from reader Jeff Levengood: “They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney I’d live in a country where people were left to fend for themselves, and they were right.”

    • I hate to laugh i grew up in gerritsen beach and it is a great community, they are not just sitting around waiting on the gov’t , they have many community group and they are helping each other, they always have. Not all of them are liberal entitlement types, alot of union workers for the city live there though, there are many conservatives. They want the power on and they can’t do that themselves.

    and Bush’s response to Katrina was the End-Of-The-World for Liberals…

    • BillRind

      And now the liberals are laughing at the suckers who voted for the messiah and the Khazar Jew in City hall.

  • Obama Voters, you voted to have Big Government take care of you. Look at the GREAT job they’re doing!
    Forward! Off the Fiscal Cliff….

    • BillRind

      these are the same people who continually voted for the khazar Jew in city hall and whom is still screwing them and most likely their all Obama voters, I feel sorrow for the ones who cant stomach Obama and have nothing to do with him, but they are getting their just fruits.
      the Government is screwing all you people because you are not BLACK or BROWN, do you get it yet. The Government is RACIST towards its own people.

  • el_polacko

    but…but…but…didn’t the exit polls tell us that obama’s fantastic handling of the storm’s devastation was the main reason they voted for him ?? do you mean to tell me that voter’s don’t know what they are talking about and only believe nonsense fed to them by an obama-loving media ?! say it isn’t so !!

  • tsturbo

    Welcome to Obamaville, coming soon to a city near you.

    • Suzyqpie

      Hi tsturbo, I like 0bamaistan better. “stan” countries are such a fine example of a judicious governance.

      • tsturbo

        You are exactly right Suzyq”T”pie, well said. I was thinking of “Hooverville”.

  • Tony Oaks

    Two weeks is an average outage after a hurricane on the Gulf coast. Why would folks think things would go faster in New York?

  • maynardb50

    Bunch of crybabies. When Hurricane Ike hit the Houston area 4 years ago, we had thousands without power for over a month and longer. It did not make the national news, because no one cares about Texas at a national level. Luckily I did not have a flooded home like many in the coastal areas did, but we survive! We are Texan!

  • drkennethnoisewater

    Obama doesn’t like American people?

  • Jaels_Song

    All Obama voters need to get on their Obama phones and call Obama right now!

  • Suzyqpie

    Our govt gave $130M to Syria today or recently. Islam gets money, Americans not so much.

  • Terri Sweeney

    3 days after Katrina, Democrats, the media and celebrities declared President George Bush to be incompetent and hating black people.

    Here, two weeks after Sandy, it’s apparent that George Bush has learned nothing and that he hates white people too.

  • You know why things are still bad in Brooklyn and Staten Island, because Obama doesn’t care about White People. Isn’t that what they said about Bush after Katrina.

  • LCPLDMT0331

    Well this is what you dumb asses get. Karma’s a bitch.

  • gracepmc

    4 dead Americans in Benghazi still unresolved. American people suffering in NY and NJ, a bureaucratic nightmare. The Obama Administration reeks of incompetence.

  • They should have done their bitchin’ at the voting booth.

  • Elections have consequences! oBummer look so presidential when he went to jerozy.

  • agas84363

    whose checking union cards down there?

  • mikeinidaho

    sorry, folks! You guys voted for liberals in EVERY level of government in the Northeast for many, many years. Seems to me you are getting exactly what you voted for. Good luck with all that! Sucks to be you. Your arrogance and liberal attitudes are doing you in.

    Where is the fearless leader from washington? Oh yea, getting ready for vacation.
