#1 Yeah, well compare that with people in prison. Free health care, three squares a day, recreation, leisure time, television, libraries, legal help, religious freedom, a job, a clean place to live, conjugal visits in some places--all that on the taxpayers dime.

#2 How many people are now displaced because their homes are damaged beyond occupance? How many because power is unavailable?
Are there no churches providing aid and shelter? Colleges?

#3 One would think that these resources could be mobilized. Some people are screwed. There insurance does not cover flood damage. They will basically eat the loss. I heard that the people in that area were singing the praises of the Marine Corp. They said they came in, knew what they were doing, pitched in and really helped.

#4 Are there no churches providing aid and shelter? Colleges?

I've heard that there are Church organizations trying to help people that haven't yet, found themselves in the tender embrace of FEMA.

However, once you have checked into Camp FEMA, you can lever leave. Having had direct experience with FEMA during the 'canes Katrina & Rita, all I can say is that they are vile even in the best of circumstances. With Obama appointed leadership I can only speculate that things are MUCH worse.

I hope the inmates...er...guests get a protracted period of time to enjoy their hosts hospitality, and to reflect upon their life choices.

#6 But do remember, our Dear Leader got a 15% bump in the voting, because he flew up on Air Force One, stepped out and stood on a 2x4, made a speech, 10,000 pictures taken for his adoring public of his standing there, in all his glory with his bomber jacket on, and flew off to Vegas.... leaving these folks to this.

But probably like everything else he seems to not know anything about, Benghazi, Petraeus, he knows nothing about these FEMA camps...

Hey, it's a Democrat area. That stuff is the government's job. Those other groups might get it wrong -- and a church group might sing a hymn!

If only he knew! Then he'd fix it!

You are.

You expected different? From the Feds? Why?

#11 I'd bet you we still have Fema camps in use from Katrina. Yes, they are fenced in with security.

#12 Rejoice citizens, your sacrifices have not been in vain - you got The One re-elected. Chris Mathews thanks you and the hurricane for your efforts.

#13 Is Chris Matthews dribbling down his leg getting that tingling feeing up his leg again? What a putz.

#14 From NYTimes: 29,000 homes in the Rockaways, 17,000 in Nassau and 12,000 in Brooklyn were still deemed so damaged that “if they power the electric system you could do more harm than good.”

Saltwater damage to electrical circuits, open gas lines and other damage all present risks of fire and explosion that must be fixed before current can safely be restored to the house, he said.

“There are some people who are not going to get their power back because it is not a power issue any longer, it is a housing issue,” Mr. Cuomo said.

The pace of repairs has been slow, as homeowners have found electricians and other contractors so inundated with storm-related work that it can take weeks to get someone to simply show up.


These are just rough estimates. When the resources are not available, they are not available, i.e, housing for several months for 58,000 households, or a quick way to check and repair house power systems damaged by flooding.
Kicking, screaming, blaming FEMA (or anyone) will not provide those resources.

#16 Someone has forgotten in the aftermath of Katrina, thousands of people were displaced to other geographical areas well beyond the Gulf.

#17 Procopius2k, yes we have one near our area. That's why I know about the security. I haven't been back to check on it. It's in a remote rural area. I know they didn't mix with the locals. The state is West Virginia.

In Houston we were flooded (no pun intended) with them. My boyfriend had neighbors from LA or MS who moved in right afterwards, and were there for four or five years.

#19 I'm surprised the Dead aren't in the hundreds from the aftermath. This has possibly been botched more than Katrina.

#20 Apparently Americans = Amerikkans across the USSA = USRoA feel the same way ...

NOT-BRANDY "SANDY", SHE'S A FINE GIRL ...

versus

AFAIK, what began wid Louisiana + Texas earlier this weekend became ...

* CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > 15 US STATES [includ Texas] FILE PETITION TO SECEDE FROM THE UNITED STATES.

Which became ...

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > 18 STATES FILE PETITION TO SECEDE FROM US AFTER OBAMA VICTORY.

Which asof this AM 11/13/12 Guam time became ...

* FREEREPUBLIC > THE INDEPENDENT STATES OF AMERICA: TENS OF THOUSANDS DEMAND TO SECEDE FROM THE US.

The abovesame 15 then 18 US States is now up to 20, which seemingly includes 20 of 30 US States wid GOP Governators.

NOT-BRANDY "SANDY" IS ALSO SECESSION/SEPARATISM-HAPPY RANDY, I.E. A RED-STATER???

Looks like the OWG Mighty USSA may yet still become the OWG Weak USRoA Global SSR.

--------------

* FYI TOPIX, WORLD NEWS > OBAMA WON HIS RE-ELECTION BECAUSE THE [poor] US ECONOMY WAS ON HIS SIDE, not Mittens.

IIUC, MORE $$$ SPENDING = QE #??? ... ...@ETC AD INFINITUM, NOT LESS???

I'M NOT SHOCKED, I TELL YA, I'M NOT SHOCKED!

* CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > LONDON TO LOSE TITLE AS WORLD FINANCE CAPITAL [3rd place by 2015], [CEBR] STUDY WARNS.

* WAFF > GREECE COULD DESCEND INTO CIVIL WAR - EXPERT [Charles McGrath], unless it chooses to de facto default on its crushing Govt-Public loans.

ARTIC > MCGRATH = TROIKA of European Commission, Euro Central Bank [ECB], + UN IMF is atempting to emplace itself as the de facto GOVT. OF GREECE + EUROZONE [EU = EUZ].

D *** NG IT, WHATS A LITTLE CIVIL WAR OR REGIONAL WAR IFF IT MEANS OWG + NORTH AMERICAN/AMERIKAN UNION [NAU] IN 2015???

* SAME > NO ONE TRUSTS GREECE, ESPEC THE TROIKA - TROIKA WANTS NAMES, NUMBERS OF THOSE TO BE FIRED, soon as well all those to be laid off and eventually fired EOY 2012 + likely going into EOY 2013.

Fear notteth, good people, Putin + Motherly Commie Airborne + North Koreans, etc. will come to save Amerikans from Americans!
