The clips from the Staten Island town hall meeting was sad. FEMA? Warned everyone about them before. Exactly why the central govt. does not need to be involved. FEMA should be shut down and the states need to take care of themselves.
One angry individual stated that he had no power or water and no home. He said that he was the middle class and he was being screwed. You are correct sir; you are being screwed. The same as the tornado victims, wildfire victims, Katrina and BP victims. No worse, just screwed.
Screwed by a federal government who has taken the mantle of disaster relief and runs it as efficiently as the Post Office, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the TSA and very soon your health care. Do you see what you have to look forward to?
Now, a Marxist leaning president has been elected on class warfare. Surely he wasn’t elected for not closing GTMO, not passing a budget, not ending the wars. Not by leading, but from the golf course and vacation playgrounds. He was elected by a party who had abortion on demand as a party plank, a nonexistent war on women and promises to tax the rich to pay their fair share.
Yes, elections have their consequences and now you must deal with it. Right before the election, Obama donned the presidential FEMA jacket and promised y’all that you were not alone. He is in this with you, all the way, 100% until the end. So, welcome to the Oligarchy my friends and if you still have no FEMA relief before Christmas; you can call good ole Barack.
The area code will be 808 and he will be there for about four weeks on a $4 Million Dollar TAXPAYER funded vacation while you await your promised aid and listen to how mold and flooding aren’t covered and your homes are not really that bad. Submit your paperwork and get in line.
Or you can join a drum circle, grab a bullhorn and take to the streets. You see, this IS what democracy looks like.
