Waiting for the Government to Help – Sandy Edition

Posted by madjillmom on November 8, 2012

It was hushed up for a week. Obama had a photo-op and everything was pronounced working great. Only problem is that it isn’t working great. When FEMA shows up, they aren’t any real help. Go on the internet is the refrain. Now that Obama is re-elected, the stories are coming out. Little better than Katrina.

Billions spent, national, state, and local bureaucracies still unable to help in a really bad situation. But that doesn’t stop the politicians from patting themselves on their backs. Obama said he would make sure and check back in with these folks. He is afraid to go back there unless there is a party with some stars or Michele wants a romantic night out.

Obama’s FEMA Now Ordering MREs

Posted by madjillmom on November 3, 2012

While patting themselves on the back for their response, it is quite telling that only now is FEMA ordering MREs to feed those in the Sandy Storm Zone. Why didn’t they have those in stock already? Why aren’t they already distributed to those in need?

By the way, the net is full of articles about the stockpile of ammo that Homeland Security has. Guess people can eat bullets. ┬áRemember when Bush hated Blacks because of the response to Katrina? Who does Obama hate? Why is this not his fault? If FEMA is just now ordering meals, doesn’t that mean that they are responsible for providing? Nothing in the MSM echo chamber, as usual.

The Federal Government should be restricted to doing a few things well. ┬áResponse to an emergency isn’t apparently one of the things.

Hurricane Sandy and the Nanny State

Posted by madjillmom on October 30, 2012

Bloomberg tells us today that there are no airports, no buses, no subways, no tunnels, no Path Trains, but most importantly, no BIG GULPS. A government that concerns itself with the minor things in life often can’t really help us with the really big things.
