Re: FEMA Disaster Centers Shut Doors 'Due to Weather'
I agree, obviously FEMA won't be there .

So where do I sign up to stop paying for it ???

Anyone, anyone ?????

I think I see...Its just like paying for a years worth of freeze dried food and getting nothing but empty boxes. Our taxpayers money is paid into the system with the understanding that services will be provided to us in return.
 Quoting: zenobiaphobia


Well actually, taxpayers' money is paid into the system because if it's not paid, the taxpayer will be raked over the coals by the IRS.

As for what they do with the money after that, maybe the IMF hasn't approved luxuries like shelter and meals for this little bump in the road.

Exactly.

But don't get me wrong, if it could prevent one death, end some suffering, this I would not begrudge anyone.

But as always, sometimes you have to hit people's pocketbooks to finally get them to wake up. And people, we have been getting ripped off since 1913 .... and this is the result.

Then I believe the OP wishes to quit paying to stable their horses.

 Quoting: Krystal




I've read so many posts here from people who are seemingly without compassion and have said some terrible things about the storm victims . . . add to that, Chris Matthews saying he's glad the storm happened - and add to THAT, the digusting failures of the government - once again - to help the citizenry in need.

Most of the country apparently thinks it was a big storm, did a lot of damage, and they've just picked up the pieces and business as usual . . . I read one report that said some areas won't have gas service for several more months because sea water got into the lines and they have to be replaced . . . and other places where NO ONE is helping.

What the hell has happened to America and humanity?
 Quoting: itsamadmadworld


Apparently most people haven't heard these stories because the MSM didn't want it to reflect poorly on dear leader.

I don't really know... I don't watch the MSM.

My jaw just dropped when I saw the this thread title. I clicked on the link thinking, there has to be more to this. If there is, I didn't see it in that piece. There is no mention of who made the call to pull the FEMA Centres, just when they are needed more than ever.

To leave those needing support, when a NorEaster is moving in, is sacraligious! horrendous! and unbelievable!

My heart and prayers go out to those who have been left in the lurch.

Re: FEMA Disaster Centers Shut Doors 'Due to Weather'
I think you guys are making more out of this than is there. Here is a snip explaining their reason, but i have a feeling you aren't going to be satisfied with their reason.

FEMA spokesman Carter Langston said that the mobile centers were shuttered and staff moved inland because they were not structurally sound enough to weather the storm, which could put their staff in danger.

"Because these are mobile centers, they were shut down for life safety," Langston said. "As soon as weather permits tomorrow, they’re going to be back in place [possibly by noon]."

The remaining five sites in the city — in Staten Island, Coney Island, the Rockaways and The Bronx — were also closed or in the process of shutting down.

It would seem to me that FEMA is supposed to be there for people in times of need and disaster... FEMA is the last group I would expect to pull out, just when the going gets tough... Where do those 30,000 plus people, still without power, go to warm up now?
Here's hoping those without power, get through this with their health in tact.

I don 't know what the other mobile centers look like, if they are trailers or like this building.
[link to www.hamptons.com]

But that place looks pretty chilly for people trying to stay warm. Where do they go/ The type shelters that are normally set up, planned in advance. Each state, town, probably has dedicated set ups. Once the storm is over, FEMA will resume. With a storm raging, that isn the time for these people to be finding a place to stay out of the cold,. not ot be coming in to get water, fill out forms for damages, etc. I'm not being brutal, this is just realistic.
