Storm-ravaged and weary Rockaways residents cornered Mayor Bloomberg yesterday to angrily demand more aid for their devastated neighborhood.

“When are we gonna get some help?” blasted one desperate woman, who had to be held back by the mayor’s security detail as Bloomberg stood by with a deer-in-the-headlights look.

Is the Red Cross still showing their “looking presidential” campaign ads for Obama? I saw them only one day here in Arizona. Then they just disappeared. Are they still showing them anywhere else? Thanks!

And you see there here military cargo plane Janet? Well, when Sequestration hits in January it will be mothballed because we don't need the military. What we need are more Food Stamps, Unemployment checks, and some more TSA agents. By the way, you're doing a heck of a job Janet!

Bloomie is having a hard time realizing that ABCNNBCBS and the New York Slimes can’t protect lying slimeballs like Obozo, the lesbo in charge of HSA and him by ignoring the news.

With Fox News and the Internet, their days of lying and b$ without severe blowback are over.

Bloomberg's ill-timed endorsement of the man whose wrong-headed ideology has decimated the earnings abilities of generous and caring private citizens will come back to haunt him!

Even now, as bad as things are for millions of citizens, they are sharing from their meager pocketbooks to help their fellow citizens by donations and actions.

How much more might have been available had they had jobs, had their President not been more dedicated to a Marxian "taking" and "redistributing," paper money theory than to an American, freedom of individual enterprise, wealth creation idea!

We need to turn away from petty tyrants who call themselves presidents, legislators, governors, and mayors and who see themselves as planners, controllers of personal behavior, and "organizers" of the economy, and dispensers of other people's hard-earned incomes.

Perhaps American liberty is best symbolized by the "Lady in the Harbor," who, by the way, seems to have survived nature's fury, as if to say: "Rediscover and return to the principles and ideas of liberty which made America a refuge for hurting and oppressed peoples from all over the globe!"

Open the floodgates of freedom so that love-motivated private charity can flourish; and as it flourishes, it points the gratitude of recipients to the God who inspires it, not to government.

The lessons from Katrina/Sandy that most people NEVER understand yet we conservatives already knew:

When the SHTF, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN!!

There will be be NO HELP from government, government ‘officials’ are taking care of their OWN families as well as political cronies and LEO will be protecting their OWN families.

I am in AZ also...hated those ads. Now they have started showing an ad for Salvation Army without obama. Very nice, Salvation Army does a much better job than the Red Cross. (domestically, not sure about internationally)

Thanks neighbor. I’m wondering if those Red Cross ads might have hurt their cause more than helped it. With the country where it is right now, I don’t think using Obama as a pitch man was a very good choice. They automatically alienated 50% of their potential donors. Stupid move.

Hah, hah....Dah Mare ran back to City Hall as fast as his short little legs could carry him....where he breathed a sigh of relief and breathlessly coughed up sympathy hairballs for the plight of the residents from whom he just narrowly escaped.

Oh, how it must really suck for Bloomie to get caught cold on the street with all those declassees and peasants screaming at him when he definitely is more comfortable with the wealthy NYC salon and art gallery set.

Dennis Miller could have a ball with this whole episode....it's like a skit from a Broadway burlesque show.

Romney is not politicising the storm at all. Obama is out there this morning campaigning on it! I couldn’t believe he was using the storm on the trail to brag about what he’s done. Ugly and unbecoming

I’m guessing Bloomie was there for a photo op, and like his mentor, Barry Benghazi, he was not prepared to do anything productive.

Bloomie went to the public housing projects, lol. I guess he was afraid to go to the west end where the real damage is and the fires occured.


From the article:
"Cops yesterday uncovered the body of 90-year-old George Stathis, who was found dead in his home on Beach 121st Street."

His son co-founded The Graybeards and The Wounded Warrior Project in Rockaway.

There is a big difference between this and Katrina. After Katrina people all over the country were taking in refugees. Now nobody can afford it. Plus there’s no room since all those kids 26 years old and under moved back home to get on their parents’ insurance.

So nanny-state Bloomberg gets his own security detail to protect him from the masses, but then tells NYC residents that they don't need guns, just their cell phones to call the police, while the rapist/killer criminal halts his attck to wait for the police to show up in 15-20 min (give or take 10 min). And NYC residents continue to vote for this commie pig bastard? I would love to see his security detail quit en mass, and dump Bloomie in the middle of NYC's worst crime neighborhood, armed with only his cell phone.... I would LOVE to see that.

I don’t think the looting was caught on video, but this is the nursing home in question:

More important, why were the Rockaway nursing homes told NOT to evacuate before the storm?

Maybe Obozo was using the nursing homes to funnel weapons to Syrian rebels, and he didn't want anybody calling attention to them.

oops, I think my #47 was posted on the wrong thread ...

sorry

But while I'm here, and as much as I hate it, I have to make a confession: I have a new-found respect for the people of Occupy Wall Street. They were the first into the Rockaways and have setup aid/food stations up and down the peninsula, one in an abandoned firehouse. They're climbing up 17 flights of unlit stairwells in some of the worse public housing projects bring blankets and supplies to the eldery trapped on the upper floors. I wouldn't set foot in those buildings; they either have more guts than I or they are very naive. There are a bunch of Youtube videos about them.
