Did a Jonas Brother say that Obama doesn't like white people on the telethon? I couldn't tell because my power was out.
Stop being ridiculous with your implications. Are you actually saying a black person would call out a white person for being racist when things don't go their way? Never.
Niggers love to cry about racism when the government doesnt give them enough, but they simultaneously love robbing from and killing each other. Storm hits a black neighborhood? Time for nigs to go shopping for free while crying for the racist white man to come save them from themselves. Storm hits a white town? Its still shopping time, but they hope the government doesnt intervene and close the buffet.
The reason LIPA came into Being was that LILCO had one of the Highest Rates in the country.
LILCO was Regularly Updating it's infrastructure and PROACTIVELY removing/Trimming Trees.
Hurricane Preparedness (on LI) was discussed and DISMISSED about 30 years ago. Most remember it when they first installed the Signs on the Parkways from Southern LI.
The response from the people was: WTF? why are we spending Money on Hurricane crap if we don't get hurricanes?
A republican president would be blamed for all the FAIL the past 12 days.
Correct.. If Bush were President they would be blaming him for the weather and the lights being out... the "Bush don't care about black people " refrain would be loud and clear.. Where is Obama's blame?
whether you're a republican or a democrat, the one thing we can agree on is disappointment that the ostrosky-stern monstrosity still stands, it was untouched...and remains as big and as ugly as it ever was.
life isn't fair when pieces of turd who build 16,000sq ft shitholes on pristine, sandy beaches are unscathed... and the poor schnooks who live in tiny houses in lindenhurst are now homeless.
That's rampant in NY and has been for many years...I have a friend that was a county correction officer who supposedly hurt his ankle breaking up a fight....Was able to go out on a full disability at over $80k a year, tax free!...Been single his whole life....
Listen up assholes...The above is my opinion and doesn't mean shit
i can't believe it's still that bad....i used to live on the north shore of suffolk county and there were plenty of times where we lost power because of all the old-growth tall trees....i remember losing one of my favorite trees in the front of the house (a magnificent cherry blossom) and having to pay $450 just to have it chopped up and removed). i can't imagine what the cost of the cleanup will be....or when it will be restored.
it doesn't look as though there's been much progress...anyone who thinks the power companies favor "the rich" (there are always people willing to demagogue) only has to look at the areas still w/o electricity......oyster bay, manhasset, cove neck, huntington et al. to know it's affected everyone.
I'm on high ground (the shore ares have it the worse) and things improve here everyday. don't let the negative nellies kid you about the reality.
I PERSONALLY have seen more of my neighbors get back their power, trees cut and moved out of traffic and away from lines so the guys can work on them, etc. I see lots of electric trucks all over the neighborhood. They are either going to a job or are parked in mall parking lots waiting for instructions on where to go next.
certain areas at the shores have to be rebuilt from the ground up. literally. That will take time.
I was able to actually get gas today! and there wasn't a line (which is the only reason I went to the gas station). I'm not saying everything is back to "normal" because it isn't.
But don't let anyone tell you that "nothing" is being done because that is bullshit.
I have no idea what is happening in New Jersey, but Long Island and the part of Queens where my family lives is doing much better.
