FEMA and local officials hold a Town Hall Meeting which quickly erupts with angry Staten Island residents voicing their frustration at the lack of response to Hurricane Sandy.
Residents are sleeping in their cars while their kids are bunking out elsewhere. No homes, no electricity, no sewer/water, no food, no clothing, no Christmas. That's FEMA for 'ya. It's the government. Don't expect efficiency. Don't expect help. Expect millions of dollars to be spent on government FEMA jobs supporting thousands of government workers who serve no purpose other than to shuffle papers in an attempt to justify their existence.
And then there's I-Promise-To-Cut-The-Red-Tape-Obama. Remember when Katrina happened and within a week the Main Stream Idiots blasted Bush for FEMA's inefficiency? Well, where are the screaming voices of the MSI today? SILENT! Wouldn't want to call Obama and his FEMA employees bungling morons, now would we? And where on earth are the Sean Penns and the Hollywood elites who held telethons like they did for Katrina and Haiti? Nowhere to be found. And don't look for a visit from the Messiah. He will be jetting to Hawaii for 3 weeks for a luxurious vacation with his family, which will cost the taxpayer around 4 million dollars. It's just another coin added to the 16 trillion dollar deficit.
Here are my thoughts on what may be going on here. I know it'd be easy to look at these people and ask the logical question, How Many Of You Voted For The Screwball In The Whitehouse, Not Once, But Twice? And the logical reaction is that elections have consequences, and they are getting what they voted for, so no empathy here. But if you fact check just a little you will find that some of the boroughs where these newly homeless people live are typically Red, not Blue. That means they tend to vote Republican. Could that be why Obama and his FEMA workers have ignored them? No Dem voters, so why bother?
Or maybe it's this fact. When you watch this video you will notice the white skin color of most of the people. I suggest that maybe they aren't black enough to warrant government help. Or how about this idea? Maybe they are too middle class, they're not poor enough, like the Katrina and Haiti victims. If that's the case, then I would suggest that they paint their faces black, go back to FEMA and claim racism. That word always gets a reaction.
Or maybe it's the simple fact that the government cannot efficiently run a popcorn stand, much less an emergency response department. Imagine what we are in for with Obamacare.
BE SURE TO WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO. THE LAST SPEAKER TELLS IT LIKE IT IS.
