Two things: first, someone explain again how thankful we should be

that big government and FEMA are saving everyone?
FEMA out of water, no delivery until Monday
In fact, the agency appears to have been completely unprepared to distribute bottled water to Hurricane Sandy victims when the storm hit this Monday. In contrast to its stated policy, FEMA failed to have any meaningful supplies of bottled water -- or any other supplies, for that matter -- stored in nearby facilities as it had proclaimed it would on its website. This was the case despite several days advance warning of the impending storm.
FEMA only began to solicit bids for vendors to provide bottled water for distribution to Hurricane Sandy victims on Friday, sending out a solicitation request for 2.3 million gallons of bottled water at the FedBizOpps.gov website. Bidding closed at 4:30 pm eastern.
Breitbart News spoke with contracting officer Annette Wright, who said that the winning vendor would be required to deliver the 2.3 million gallons of bottled water to an East Farmingdale, New York distribution center that was listed in the solicitation request by Monday, November 5th. Ms. Wright was unable to say when or how the water would be delivered from the distribution center to needy Hurricane Sandy victims in New Jersey, Staten Island, Long Island, and other boroughs of New York City. Vendors "are currently being evaluated," she said, and when the vendors are announced, they will provide information on how local distribution will occur.
Absolutely frikkin' amazing, isn't it?


The second, found this at the Irishman's place, supposedly said by the President's minder Valerie Jarrett:
 After we win this election, it’s our turn.  Payback time.  Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay.  Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”
I doubt there's any way to confirm this; whoever leaked it is probably scared to death to be named, or give some way to confirm.  Personally, I believe it; it fits past words and actions.

jarrett probably said exactly that - after all, how many times has her boss broncobama told his sycophants, um I mean dedicated followers, to punish their (his) enemies and reward their (his) friends?

I thought FEMA was supposed to help you rebuild, not give you water and food.

Seems that that is the local folks job

What? Citizen, are you saying that PEOPLE should do some of these things themselves? That they and the local government should not wait for the Holy Federals to show? Blasphemy!!!
