only a fukard would

1) have their residence within blocks of the ocean and/or at an elevation of less than 20 feet. yes the view is nice, but once every generation or so, well...
2) only a fuktard would not, with a weeks notice, have a basic personal survival kit of 4 giant jars peanut butter, small bottle vitamins, and a 3 oz pool chlorine tablet - total cost $20. CVS delivers, and i saw a bunch of pools on the satellite photos
3) only a fuktard would leave themselves at the mercy of fuktard bloomberg in looking for aid

It's a damn good thing that Bloomberg had police escorting him in that crowd.

What an idiot - just a typical "I don't live in reality" politician if you ask me.

That situation is deteriorating FAST and I can't see enough getting done to help the people FAST enough to head off pure CHAOS developing.

Best of luck NY - you're gonna need it!

Yep, damn lucky.

He is so fucking detached from reality its pathetic, from his marathon call to the national guard bullshit, and now a noreaster about to blow through, these fucking centrally planned agencies are'nt going to do shit.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26978752


Truth be told in a flood senario when you have been wiped out BURN whats left. Collect your content insurance and move on.

People don't realize the amount of labor required to rebuild.

Less and less people entering the work force are TRADE TRAINED.

These kids go to school and take Massage therapy and Accounting and Bookeeping and Social Working. They don't like the hard labor jobs and won't train for them.

Most of the ones trained and have a trade are starting to get to retirement age.

You watch what happens coming up. There is going to be nobody around to fix stuff. There is a shortgage already.

Just these rip off artist types that are JACK OF ALL TRADE TYPES and everybody forced to use them gets burned.

How many of these people are starting to even clear out their homes and dry them out. Have chain saws and such.

I heard there were 600 active duty firemen that lived in Rockaways. Their probably the only ones capable of anything.

Boozoo the Mayor better hope HIS HOUSE never catches fire ever.

I totally agree. The comments from some people demonstrate that they are unaware of a recession that has dragged on for what - 4 years? - now. So many people are unemployed or under employed. Yet they are taxed to the gills on every penny they are fortunate enough to earn.

The local Salvation Army has a soup kitchen which serves a hot dinner every weekday night and gives out meal boxes for the weekend. Most of the people are working poor, my daughter tells me. She has volunteered there many times, and knows.

Is it so different other places? I think not.

Some people have trouble setting aside enough food for tomorrow.

If you have ever been living by the grace of God, you will know what I mean.

If you have always had a good job and generous parents, you won't, unless the bottom falls out on you too someday.

Kindness and tolerance go a long way, and bring unseen rewards. Unkindness and quick criticism bring problems and bad days and nights.

Many people are just freaking broke these days and it is enough they are able to put food on the table each day let alone have two weeks stored up.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123


I agree.

I wonder how many "preppers" have tapped in and consumed their supply just to sustain daily living.
 Quoting: Miggy


I doubt many "preppers" tap into their supply. They know how to ROTATE their stocks and keep them the same! It isn't rocket science like someone has pointed out. It is merely "one can of beans that is due to expire eaten and then another can of beans with later expiration date purchased".

Look it up. Their is plenty instruction on how to stock and rotate. It isn't difficult if you are not a Lazy Ass figuring someone else will give you handouts.

I bet those people bitching about no food or water or means to keep stocked up always have plenty of cigarettes and booze stocked in their houses.

Why no air drops? Why are they not dropping food and water in the neighborhoods and on the beaches? Where is the US Army? All hands on deck!
 Quoting: allisaTX


The US Air Force loaded up globemaster and galaxy cargo jets from Cali and brought in 90 utility crews. You can't airdrop food and water in the neighborhoods. It's going to go right through someones roof. There are a lot of volunteers (me being one of them) that are bringing in supplies. The issue is manpower to distribute them.

Fricking New Yorkers have a huge ENTITLEMENT MINDSET!!

Sheesh ... hate to say it but they all have this "YOU OWE ME", "YOU OWE ME", "YOU OWE ME" mindset when they don't get their way or something very FORESEEABLE happens that THEY did not WANT to happen.

I agree with some of the posts above... not even a week and people have NO food?

Sheesh. They certainly couldn't live in my area since winter storms can cause week long problems EASILY. They also did NOT pay any attention to the news either (or felt they "KNEW" better than the weather forecasters)

Sorry, but except for those who houses were actually destroyed or got water into them MORE than a couple of feet higher than the floorboards of the first floor, I just can NOT sympathize with their "YOU OWE ME" attitude.

THEY CHOSE to live in a hurricane potential area ... and now they are pissed at the government because, OMG, a hurricane actually hit? (and caused the damage that would be expected).

Cry me a river ... NOT
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25450407

while I, as well, am anti the "you owe me attitude", and many NY'ers do have that, these people "didn't choose to live in a hurricane prone area." Storms like these are rare and happen once every 40 years. The reason people are pissed is because these agencies such as FEMA, *actually exist* and are costing taxpayers millions. Since they exist, they should be deployed and helping in full force. It's not that we are pissed at the government. Imagine paying for some type of services and then just not getting them. Everyone pays for FEMA via taxes. We want to see our money being used.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26828773



You seem like a reasonable person AC. There is so much hate on this thread. I cant read it.

My question is:

Why the shortage of manpower? Can't the military get troops on the ground then to distribute food/water?

Is the disaster just so large that we can't get food there? I assume people are thinking out of the box, and this is the US w/ the largest military in the world....?

I live and eat week to week and I make decent money too..

Let me tell 'ya.. If I were unable to work for a week, had no power, no water and was receiving no aid, I'd be flipping the fuck out and demanding some sort of assistance..

Some people loot for greed, others loot for survival..

Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to stock up on food and be prepared - which is why those people need to understand how critical it is that they have something, even if it's just cans of beans..

At some point, people should have to take responsibility for themselves.
If a person doesn't suffer illness or disability, they shouldn't need to depend on others in a crisis.

Storms happen all over the planet, all the time.. not a new thing.
The emergency services should be reserved for those who truly are in need because of infirmity or
destruction.. not for those who selfishly ignore disaster-planning or lack a sense of self-preservation.

Good one, Perth!

This is probably closer to the truth than one would expect. The biggest clue that you are dealing with a bureacracy is the "need" to fill out a mind-numbing number of forms, which are then collated, time-stamped, filed, and ultimately forgotten.

One of the TV networks was going on about how FEMA was there helping, and all you saw was a tent-building filled with weary people filling out forms.

Maybe they are hoping that the people will get fed-up and discouraged and just go away. "Obviously didn't need OUR help!"

Tah-DAH!! Another FEMA success story!! "Heckuva job, Brownie!!"

I agree with some of the posts on this thread. I live along the area where Sandy was to hit and made sure I had enough supplies to care for my family. So no, I do not understand why these people have nothing. Beans, rice, peanut butter and jelly, crackers, canned goods, etc. ga long way and there IS such a thing as Self-Sufficency! I agree with posts on here that talk about having children, power out, snowed in, etc and making it without help. I lived through that a few times myself, blizzards, 80's, 90's,snow-mageddon, Isabel, and a few other storms and hurricanes that knocked out access to supplies and energy. I ALWAYS got enough supplies to take care of my family! Dollar store stuff can go a Long way when you don't have alot of money!

How about community meetings for preparing for disasters? What about the elderly? Aren'tthere care-giver services where they lived? Some of the places were retirement homes-didn't they think to prepare?

Now I will discuss the gov's part in this WTF weren't they prepared? Since they had advanced notice and stated that this was going to be a big, bad storm nearly a week before it came! WHERE were the standing by supplies like drinking water and Red-Cross meal trucks?

It is obvious that people need to wake up to the reality of the situation we call life. It is our Personal Responsibility to care for our families! If you have children it is your JOB as their parents to make sure you can feed them! I do not want to hear this BS about being poor! WTF makes you think that people who post on here are rich? Most of us are in the same boat. Hindsight is 20-20 isn't it. Use this as a learning example-of what NOT to do in a storm! Of what TO do to prepare for a storm. Or for any kind of disaster for that matter!

As far as the posters who say "well you live in those areas it's your fault". You could not be more wrong about that. If you have lived in an area for 20 plus years, your parents and grandparents, etc have lived in and around the same area and NOTHING like this has ever happend in any of their lifetimes how are you to know that something like this could happen? And then there are those of us who not by choice live in areas that "could" by hit by disaster. Financially we are "stuck". Are you going to give us the money to move to an area tha may be safe in the future?

We are ALL doing the best we can do! We are All doing what we know to do. If you were never taught to be self-reliant, how do you know what that means? If you never grew up in a depression or recession how do you know how to survive in one? If storms of this magnitute have never happened in your area before, how do you kow how to prepare for one?

For the people living in these areas now. You must form groups. A group to go for fuel, a group for food, a group to care for the children and elderly. Some of you must have relatives that live in other non-affected areas. Meet them for supplies! HELP EACH OTHER! That is why we are alive in the first place!
