MYFOXNY.COM - Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro says the people of his community are in desperate need of fresh underwear.

These guys. They know what to do.
Phase 1: Collect underpants
Phase 3: Profit!
Ask Bill Clinton. It’s going to cost you 6 bucks a pair, but the skid marks are free.
But, (no pun intend), Andrea Mitchell said....
This is so sad. Think about it. These are just regular people, who had normal lives 2 weeks ago. Now are forced to beg for new/clean underwear. In the United States of America. There but for the Grace of God.....
Boxers or briefs?
The press will not report this. Can’t make Obama look bad.
No worries. Victoria Secret is coming in for a photo shoot (displacing the National Guard from their building this weekend), so the can probably help out.
Calling Bill and Hillary Clinton. Here is an opportunity to get another (dubious) tax write-off.
It is sad to see Americans in this position.
Where is the address so I can send them some. Walmarts has some for sale and the Post Office will deliver.
Obama is playing basketball in Chicago.
i haven’t worn underwear in years, except for visits to the doctor and thermals in winter. must be an army thing.
If Obama loses today, look for the floodgates to open. They might even start reporting on Benghazi.
And if it focuses on Obama rather than Hillary, then you will know that the fix is in.
The relief effort in these areas has been a joke, I been to the South Shore of Long Island almost every day since the hurricane, very little has been done and still no power for another 2 weeks or so, gasoline lines are ridulous and power is still out for 300,000 on Long Island.
How about shooting looters for them to take some of the stress off.
Thermal underwear would be best for them to keep warm.
Praying they will be ok through the next storm and the cold.
There have been several relief efforts, but it doesn't seem like much is reaching them.
Having said all that, As Texans living on the coast, These very people said we shouldn't be allowed to rebuild in flood zones. We were told we deserved what we got for electing GW Bush. In hurricane Rita, I was without electricity for 30 days. It got plum mid-evil after a couple of weeks. The problem is these same people have never experienced something like this over their lifetime. It will get better, slowly, but there is nothing the government can do and very little others can do right now. This takes time. When a hurricane is projected to reach landfall, there should be Nat Guard trucks loaded with water, food, and blankets pre stationed 100 miles inland ready to move the day of the hurricane landfall. FEMA really can't do all that much for a few weeks. The Nat Guard, Salvation Army, and Red Cross are the first responders that know what they are doing. The rest of the responders are basically check writers. If you lost everything and you are 7 days in without underwear, the government isn't the one that will get you new drawers.
These Yankee's will have a new life lesson after 3 weeks and people still don't have juice and the camera's leave and all you have left is a slab with a pile of trash on the curb. The easy fixes are done first and the numbers change very quickly at first. That last 100,000 customers without power is the hardest. Your insurance company will be the one that pays you for your losses and replaces your car so you can get to the store and buy your underwear. It won't be coming from Obama, or any other government official.
Yes, there but for the Grace of God, indeed.
It is also sad that this thread was posted solely to ridicule these people and make stupid jokes.
