The people in New Jersey are still in peril with the weather. They are now freezing to death, literally! They still have no shelter to speak of and FEMA is doing nothing!
Where are the trailers that where for Katrina. Are they the best? Nope, but they are better than
a plastic tarp over a few sticks. That's what they are using now, so where is the black man and his promises?
Oh, wait he already got their votes.
This man we call president went and got his photo op, got their votes and left them out in the COLD.
Yes, they got exactly what they voted for, no question about that, but they are still Americans.
They still live here in the US, not some third world banana republic. There is no reason for this to be happening here.
Yes I know that they voted for this incompetent administration ( that is being put nicely ) that is a failure at best.
Again I know that they are getting what they asked for, but.
What can we do? Call your Representitive. and tell them to do something.
We can send troops and money all over the world, we should be able to help our own here.
Let's face it the Chicago Pimp and his Mistress in the big house are living high on the HOG.
$40,000,000.00 for a two week vacation, $1,400,000,000 to play around for a year.
Listen, the Democrat's are doing nothing, Maybe we can get the Republican's to step up and get something going.
They will have to embarrass the Dem's to move them to help these people in NJ.
Yes the Dem leadership is much like union official's, the only time you see them is when.
1. They need your vote
2. they want to stick their hand in your pocket, aka need your money.
Call your Rep, this should not be happenomg here!!!!

Will it do any good? We can only try and hope.

I agree that this is UN-American to treat these Sandy victims this way, but I don't think the Republicans can do much about it. Christie is as vocal as he can be, but what's he get outside of N.J., 30 second sound bites if that? If the MSM won't carry the message, they might as well yell it to the Atlantic ocean. This is but one more example of how corrupt the MSM has become. They don't report news, they try to create and shape opinions. They will do what ever it takes to keep Obama in a heavenly "Glow" regardless of collateral damage.

All the other Obama cover ups have been listed many times here in this forum. Let me add another. Does anybody know the names of the Americans killed in the Algeria hostage crisis??............ Anybody??????...........Me neither.
You can bet your first born, if Bush were in office, there would be no end to the criticism he would be getting about OUR Americans that helplessly died in the Algerian desert.

Sympathy for liberal states doesn't exsist for me. They need a wake up. Strong centeral government is not the answer.

Your in Ca right? So if we have a major earthquake here and we're stuck living in the rubble for months on end because we're a liberal state, your cool with that? I for one get tired of having to wear the black eye for being from California. I'm the farthest thing from being a socialist, as are most of the people I personally know. I would hope that other people would realize that we all shouldn't be judged by the actions of our ruling class here. I'm sure there are more than a few good conservitives living in N.J and N.Y.

I dealt with FEMA nitwits after the last quake here in SoCal.

They were useless.

You know we are going to have a major earthquake. Be prepared and have a plan. You and your family will be survivors. Find some elderly person or person(s) who you know will need help and keep them in mind during your planning. As for the rest of the Californians looking to the government to save their ass, you can wish them good luck (to put it nicely).

Why would I be living in rubble? I would go purchase a motor home or travel trailer and park it on my lot or at a motorhome camp. I may even leave the state entirely and start over. I could also live with family that isn't in the affected area. I could also borrow a motor home or travel trailer from friends are family. There are plenty of short term and long term solutions.

There's a reason to keep both cash and credit avaliable.

With all due respect, one opening/shift of a couple feet will preclude any vehicle from passage. There needs to be a safe haven in your own home or what's left of it. Folks on the move will have problems getting fuel and supplies but your home can already house these.

As for Sandy, it's the same as Katrina because it was a terrible natural disaster. The government does far less than the private sector does when it's all added up. My Church has far surpassed the Red Cross with relief around the world but they don't toot their own horn, they simply serve where needed.

The real tragedy is that the news is silent about Sandy while they battered the administration daily over Katrina to the point that many believed Bush brought that hurricane on himself, somehow. Not that it's Obama's party failing, they are brutally silent while people continue to suffer. What a shame.

Maybe you're intentionally missing my point. It's not the disaster I'm worried about, it's labeling every person in a state a Liberal, and thus not worthy of help, just because of where they live.

You used the term "I" multiple times, what if you had a family you needed to take care of, maybe parents or small children that couldn't be up rooted so easily? You mentioned your Grandmother recently in another thread. I don't know if she is in Ca or not, but what would you say if people didn't want to help her in the event of a natural disaster just because she's a Californian?

Really? You would just buy a moho or trailer? That simple. Would this be a new one from a dealer, or you have so much money you would simply out bid the others for the few that are available.
One big one and over 1 million people are without housing and YOU run out and grab a moho. GOOD LUCK!

Depends on where you are. It will be either by flood here (I have boats), or it will be a tornado. My house is built in the very spot of another that was destroyed in a tornado. Yes, I do need and plan on building an underground structure. I've been looking at generators and even thinking of putting in a well and cistern.

That is pitiful and one reason why I don't give to RC!!!

Like Sean Hannity says, "The media died in 2008." :yes:

If all these states including the POS one I live in, wouldn't spend the tax money like you know, and have a surplus like they are suppose to have. Maybe these natural disasters wouldn't be as bad as they are financially. But then again common sense never goes to well with politicians. My MOHO is always full with gas/propane food and water, in-case some type of disaster hits. and there is always more of that in a few sheds I have on our property. My neighbor goes to NJ every year at the end of October and runs 100 x-mas lots, he said the desperation was unbelievable.

If only it was as easy as staying in the camper. You've obviously have never used a motor home in a freezing environment. Everything not in the living area freezes; holding tanks, water heater, water pump, everything. And you will use propane like crazy. Where do you think they will get that much propane? Having a motor home may work for camping, but it is no way go try and live in the freezing cold nor without a place to hook it up. It only holds so much water, grey, black, and potable.

I feel for the people up there.

Just another lie/photo op

obama's appearance with Christy after Sandy was, as mentioned by the OP, nothing more than a pre election photo op.... "I'll remove all the RED TAPE and MAKE IT HAPPEN"....What a douche.... Once that is realized by those lacking the help they desperately need........ Oh wait, chances are they'll never realize how badly they were fooled.....

Motor home is only one solution to many. Who says you need to put water in the motorhome? I've been in a motor home when it was sub 20 for the high for on at least 15 days out of 30 days. You use it for shelter and that's it in a cold environment.

It's 3 months after the fact now, not initially. Government can't do anything about the initial suck anyways, but there is plenty of things a person can do to make their life better. If I was involved in Sandy I'd just go buy another house at the exact same price I paid were mine was destroyed. But most of them and the rest of America probably can't do that because they overbought. Yes a larger disaster could happen and that wouldn't be so easy. But if you think the government can do more on a larger disaster I don't know what to say.
