Sandy: Tempers heated among New Yorkers still in the cold
CBS ^

Posted on 11/10/2012 7:26:54 AM PST by Perdogg

rally was scheduled on Long Island Saturday for fed-up utility customers to voice their frustration about still being without power nearly two weeks after superstorm Sandy struck, CBS Station WCBS reports.

Many residents will spend their 13th day in the dark and cold Saturday, and there seemed to be no light at the end of the tunnel

Sandy has all but ended any dreams that either Bloomberg or Cuomo had of running in 2016..

Maybe time can be better spent cleaning up and rebuilding instead of whining that government isn’t there to do it for you fast enough.

Have some pity for the people in the Town of Hempstead, who are the hardest hit. We are one of the last bastions of Republicans on Long Island. You would almost think it was a conspiracy.

What happened to all of the utility workers from Southern states? Didn’t the come to the North East with equipment and men? Oh, yeah! The unions wouldn’t let them in.

I bet the union fat cats have heat and electricity!

Perhaps the utility crews from other states that were rudely turned away because they were not union members could have helped.

Guess they will never know.

I really find myself kind of conflicted over this. It involves two different groups of people who may as well be living on a different planet, as far as I’m concerned: (1) incompetent bureaucrats in government agencies and government-run utilities, and (2) residents who have become so dependent on a nanny-state government that they can’t fend for themselves.

I’m glad somebody said it. SO silly to sit around whining that others aren’t coming to your rescue. Face life and get on with it.After Katrina I was thoroughly disgusted that people expected some divine-like government magic to presto-changeo make everything all rosey again.
Can’t imagine why any conservative would expect politicians and government to handle this job. Things happen, face up to it and get on with life. If you expect others to bail you out, don’t be surprised at the lack of response.

The despicable Michael Moore has expressed thankfully his belief that Sandy helped re-elect Obama.
The New York/New Jersey area liberals who are suffering in the aftermath need to be reminded of that.

Not everyone is unhappy. The electrical workers union is very happy with the long season of over-time they’ll cash in on. It paid to keep the non-union southern workers out who wanted to help restore the power for the people for free.

But this is Obama country. These people are so bright, they don’t need light...but heat may be a problem around Christmas time.

Part of the problem is that in the Democrat's incessant demonizing of Bush after Katrina ( for political gain) they created an expectation that somehow everything should, and will be fixed immediately..

It's totally unrealistic. You can't rebuild an electric infrastructure..poles, lines, transformers, for hundreds of thousands of people in a week or so..

Speaking of Whoraldo, doesn’t he have a boat that he likes to be photographed shirtless riding around in?

He thinks he’s a real man but can’t see that he is only Village People-macho.

I guess there wasn’t a good photo-op for him, so he didn’t bother trying to help out.

Cavuto just had a panel on about what is going on in NY - they were going ballistic. One of the guys was saying Staten Island is destroyed, schools being used for morgues. Cuomo not doing the job, neither is FEMA. Areas look 3rd world or like Mogadishu. Really bitching about the victory lap officials were taking 10 hours in about how well things were being handled and that is NOT the case. Talking about how poor the media coverage has been of the truth about what is going on (so what else is new?). Saying Obama should visit and take a look (why? when has he ever showed true compassion for anything unless is increased his change of getting re-elected?). NY sending $10,000/person to the FEDs and have to beg and break out the pom poms to get it back. Woo ... some mad, upset folks. Big discussion of who knows the situation best - Feds in DC or state officials.

I’m somewhat puzzled by the attitudes of these folks. They should be proud that they are at the van guard of fighting climate change. Think of all of that nasty CO2 that’s not being emitted by those horrid coal-fired power plants. They should be lionized for their sacrifices to save Gia. FORWARD freezing climate soldiers!!!

Exactly.

It's totally unrealistic. You can't rebuild an electric infrastructure..poles, lines, transformers, for hundreds of thousands of people in a week or so.

That doesn't keep people from deluding themselves into thinking that you CAN rebuild all of this in a week or so. And this is where government falls on its face ... when it can't deliver on the promises that makes.

Personally, I think this is what drove Bloomberg to make those stupid statements about endorsing Barack Obama because Hurricane Sandy was evidence of "climate change." When an elected official in a position of responsibility starts to blame some unseen boogeyman like "climate change" for his troubles, you know he's pretty much exposed himself as an incompetent fool.

I liked it when Bloomberg was walking through is voters while they were cursing him, and he all nervously said talk to the press guy...

Who is the press guy? Is he the government savior? What exactly is your function Mr. Doom Turd?

Anyhow, I have no sympathy or compassion for these people whatsoever. I am divorced from them, and if they are all gone tomorrow, I’ll throw a party and eat some cake.

Most of the storm damage was done in red area that don't support Obama.

It looks from this story that the people protesting were simply complaining about the poor response from their electrical problem.

So what the eff is your problem?
