When Hurricane Charlie hit Florida..the prison where I was working took in an extra 400 low-custody inmates and put them to work with DOT trucks in our county, other counties that were Affected were granted the same courtesy .. they were issues chainsaws, rakes, lawn mowers..and assigned to debris removal crews. granted it was a small town, but after a month of 12 hour days. life started to look normal again.
I doubt New York or New Jersey could pull that off.. what would the unions say?
I used to think Katrina was bad..the inability for people to work together in a natural diaster just shows how ignorant the North really is..they come down here and tell us how we’re doing it wrong all the time, the reality is..they are the ones who are doing it wrong..and this proves it!
When out of state utility workers come to my island to restore power, we bring them food and drinks. I have read that the southern crews are getting pelted with eggs and rocks up there because hey are non-union. That isn’t smart. A freind of mine takes crews all over the country from our local power company, and I am anxious to hear how he was treated when he gets back
BTW, Mr. Pinko, look for the CCEMC and JOEMC trucks…those are my local guys.
So where’s FEMA, where’s the federal government with troops and the infrastructure to provide food, water and shelter? And where’s the media outrage?
Answer A: The media learned from Katrina that no matter who is in charge it takes time to respond to a disaster on this scale.
Answer B: A Democrat is in office and his chances dim with each crisis he fails to respond to.
Answer C: Not many minority faces in those Long Island and New Jersey neighborhoods so the visuals just don’t POP like they did for New Orleans.
Answer D: The media are lazy and not interested in how middle class suburban residents fair in the face of this disaster.
Answer E: New Jersey and New York and solid blue, so who cares, their voting for Obama anyway?
Around here when a big storm does a lot of damage, we always band together with chains and saws and clear our own way out. We don’t wait for govt or a power co. My friends and I usually jump in the truck and canvass the surrounding areas clearing fallen trees from the road and out of people’s driveways if we can. We go and check on the old people and take them to someones house if we need to. I actually enjoy the bonding that comes from disaster cleanup. It brings us together and creates a sense of common purpose.
Dr Tar, did you see the size of some of those houses? There’s no political advantage for Teh Won by the media covering their plight. They’re a bunch of rich white 1%-ers. WHO CARES if they are suffering? The Obama-voters would probably dance and celebrate like the Fakestinian woman on CNN on 9/11 if they saw those images! “That’s wut them rich-ass crackas get. Now they know how we be feelin ain’t got no food or heat and the lites done got cut off”…
I’m sorry but I’m having a lot of difficulty conjuring up much sympathy for these people. Like most New Yorkers, they are totally helpless when nature happens. They don’t store food and water; They don’t have generators; They don’t own chain saws; They have no tools – they just shiver in the dark and whine until some government agency brings them food, water, ice, and electricity, and until unionized sanitation workers remove the debris from around their homes. When I think of the hardships our ancestors endured on the California Trail, I think this display of total helplessness is pathetic.

I have a suggestion to this do gooder.
Put down the camcorder and pick up a freaking chain saw.
Oh, and how about the non union line crews NJ turned down. They could have had you back online, I no longer feel sorry for you. You managed to charge up the camcorder and post it.
@John, my thoughts exactly. I think that explains why Yankees are so predominantly leftist.
gonna need to show some ID there, Mr. P, well the UNION label anyhows
Judging from those homes & boats I’d say the bulk of that community was living on union retirement bennies. Most likely fed unions.
I was just visiting another website that has it’s servers located in lower Manhattan, they were happy to have power back tonight..so, I wrote a reply about all the help the southern states that sent help and how they’re being treated..the limp wrist-ed bastard at that site pulled my post.. fuck ‘em..I hope they lose everything! – either another flood or a power surge..the rat bastards!
I hope Matt Hardigree trips and lands on the subways 3rd rail when it’s goes back online.
