IKE VICTIMS WILL HAVE TO WAIT WEEKS FOR FOOD, WATER AND POWER...AND OTHER ASSISTANCE...WOULD IT BE DIFFERENT IF OUR NATIONAL GUARD WAS HOME?


"The number of distribution centers was to be quadrupled to 60 by the end of the day to deliver food, water and ice. Still, for some, the wait for a return to normalcy could be days. For others, it could be weeks. For most, such luxuries are far beyond the horizon. Many service stations have no gasoline, and some major highways remain under water. More than 30,000 evacuees are still living in nearly 300 public shelters, and roughly 2 million people in Texas alone are without power."[from Huffpost article, read more.]

And unlike Katrina, they won't be televised. No one is even talking about this right now. WTF? It's a huge disaster!

yeah I watched the FEMA Dipshit standing by an empty truck and "explaining " WHY this was a GOOD plan????people had walked to the Drop Point with wagons and skateboards to get stuff...like bags of ice- because there is NO gas or fuel..

there is NO meals being prepared - they are handed COLD MRE's.....and if they can not get to the drop points or have injuries or are elderly they will starve....and dehydrate... I am working on a post on this...

That is BEYOND fucked up!! Remember the 24/7 coverage on Katrina? The people in my community were renting trucks, filling them with needed items, and driving down there. My brother, an EMT, was called down there from Chicago to help. Where's all that for these folks? These people are suffering a media blackout. OMG... and they really need help. Do you think they are also being punished for deciding not to leave??

I think it is worse than that...I think FEMA has NO money- we have not heard Bush promising MONEY????

and the media has been kept away...you are right...

( the State Insurance pool is 16 Billion - and if that is AIG- then the State would get the bill- BUT if there is NO money ??)

My mind is getting so blown today.

And Obama is suing in Michigan to stop those asshole rethugs who want to disenfranchise voters who were foreclosed upon. I'm going to post about it now.
