Well, There You Go, Long Islanders Have Sand In Their Vaginas

The electrons haven’t even stopped being bounced on this that I wrote here today:

When there is no soul, no consistency in principle, there can never be true equality as governments of men attempt to legislate and regulate based on this unprincipled position, governments and societies become a version of a cat chasing its tail, doomed to eternal action oblivious to the impossibility of ever achieving the goal of actually catching the tail.

And now comes this rant, via Ed Driscoll at Insty and Small Dead Animals by Kate about the situation in Long Island:

Davenport said: “I’m going to head off The Phantom here, who doubtless will show up shortly with some rant about how this is all FEMA’s fault.”

You really are DENSE woman. FEMA, while it is a clusterfrig of titanic proportions, could not cause this much misery on its own. Although they FAILED to have emergency generators at key fuel distribution points (read gas stations) and although they FAILED to have any kind of plan to move food and fuel to the affected areas, and although they FAILED to even have a forward based supply of bottled water and ran out last Friday, even these gold plated MORONS couldn’t have frigged things up this badly alone.

Do you want to know why the power is STILL off on Long Island, Davenport? Read this here: http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Sandy-LIPA-Outages-Power-Long-Island-Defense-Military-178115341.html

In it you will find reference to a report from 2006, SIX YEARS AGO, which found that Long Island Power Authority had not done the basic maintenance required to secure the power grid from weather damage. The maintenance they’re talking about here is tree cutting mostly, and replacing bad power poles.

I lived in New York in the 1990’s. I could have written that report. The f-ing power went off every time it snowed because they didn’t cut trees and the trees ripped the lines down. They also didn’t plow the roads, but that’s a story for another day.

You want to know why they don’t cut the f-ing trees Davenport? It isn’t because they are stupid, it isn’t because they don’t know, it isn’t because private enterprise is inherently corrupt, it isn’t even because union workers are a bunch of rent-seeking layabouts. Its because every time they go to cut down a tree, some local Greenies get up a petition or a court order to make them stop. So they stop. So the trees break and knock down the power lines. Same thing all over the North East until you get up into snow country, where even the f-ing tree huggers know better.

Well -this- time it all came home to roost the same day, and every overhanging branch from New Jersey to Connecticut took out a line.

But don’t get me wrong, there’s a ton of corruption and scamming going on too. Paying off inspectors, hockey tickets for town council, that sort of thing. That’s why all those flooded switching stations were within reach of a flood in the first place, because the money to move them was skimmed off by graft. That’s why FEMA didn’t have any forward located stuff, because it all either vanished or was never there to start with except on paper.

But now that there’s been a disaster the LIPA wankers are screaming for crews. And they aren’t getting them. You know why Davenport? Because volunteer crews from as far away as Florida showed up Monday -before- the storm and cooled their heels until Friday, didn’t get any assignments because they WERE NOT UNION, and then those volunteer crews went the hell back home.

And FEMA didn’t say jack about it, did they? Nor did anyone else. One phone call from Barack “The Golfer” Obama to the head of the union could have fixed that. Just one, single phone call. Didn’t get made, did it? He made a speech on Wednesday and then flew to Vegas.

Some of the people displaced by the flooding are still in tents. FEMA is supposed to find or make housing for these people, its been a week and a half now, and they are in tents. Looked out the window today? Its cold. People are going to -die- in tents this time of year. It is reported today that some of these cold tent dwelling people started calling the news media, and the FEMA types running the camps started confiscating cameras and refusing to charge up cell phones. No power, they said.

The only organizations in this whole farce that showed up like they meant it have been churches. Not seeing much of that covered in the MSM are we?

But the crowning touch Davenport, the cherry on top of it all that just makes it all the more outrageous and mind numbing is that New Yorkers voted for MORE of it on Tuesday. More graft. More incompetence. More better and bigger Big Government. Gimme my Obama phone.

Say, d’ya think LIPA and ConEd will be laying off because of Obamacare? I bet they will. I bet they lay of a thousand guys right before January first.

I prophesy this: until people like YOU, Davenport, stop actively sabotaging everyone who’s trying to make our civilization work, there’s going to be ever-increasing numbers of people dying of exposure in tents waiting for help from Big Brother that never comes. I also predict that the ones who survive are going to be p1ssed.

As my parting shot, I want you to think about Toronto for a second.

Did you know that thanks to the Liberal Party of Ontario and -decades- of stunning stupidity, there are two (2) main power lines that come in to downtown? Yep. Both running at the edge of melting most of the time. And did you know that most of your power comes from far away places like Nanticoke, Darlington and Bruce? Did you know that outside of Pickering there is no generation in the GTA at all?

Did you know that gas stations almost never have an emergency generator, even around Toronto?

I want you to think about Toronto after two solid weeks with no power. In November. Nice eh? Now try February. Hope you stocked up. On insulin. ‘Cause there won’t be any.

And remember. YOU voted for this. You did. Not me. I voted to fix it, you voted for the stupid short sighted @ssh0les who broke it.

You don’t even know how close to the edge you are, yet you argue with me for telling you. Wake the hell up and LEARN something before Bad Things happen.

Perfect illustration of the cat chasing its tail. You broke it, now you own it.

Remember that 46% of voters in the New York Times exit poll said that Obama’s expert handling of Hurricane Sandy factored into their decision.

  1. Sandy news has disappeared as fast as Kyle’s vagina. How long did we hear about Katrina?

    The Canucks crack me up online. They pipe in with their 2 cents, and I feel like telling them, “Hey, if I thought your country was all that and a bag of chips, I would’ve moved there, but I dig FL and apparently you do as well.” Of course, the Canadian Lutherans are not like this.

  2. New Orleans Katrina all over again., chicago voting COUNTRY WIDE,

    Just make an American feel all warm and fuzzy inside. woo hooo, !

    Stupid “censored”.

  3. All of Utah’s points are valid, but it seems the northerners are somewhat over-expectant. In 1979 my telecommunications career was in it’s 8th year. I was a business system (called key systems at that time)installer/repairman and was sent to Bayou La Batre, AL TWO WEEKS after Hurricane Fredrick has devastated Mobile, AL, Bayou La Batre, and Dauphin Island along with much of the gulf coast in that area. Power and telecommunications were still out. FEMA didn’t exist. The only gasoline available to run the telco vehicles was at a gas station north of Bayou La Batre. We provided a generator to pump the gasoline from the tanks to the vehicles as there was no commercial power.
    When Andrew hit Homestead and Katrina hit New Orleans, services were not restored for many weeks. All the FEMA in the world cannot prepare you for a massive disasters such as these. Power will be out. Telecommunications will be out. Gasoline and groceries will be unavailable for weeks. There are hundreds, if not a couple of thousand, power company workers from across the nation working that disaster. I know it’s hard to understand it when you’re the one in the dark, but YOU have to shoulder some of the responsibility for your welfare. Jumping up and down on the power company headquarters steps will not help.

  4. The only people in the mess up there I have any sympathy for are the ones who lost everything including their homes. The rest of you yahoos had over a week of warning to prepare. We knew we weren’t going to be affected by the storm, but still went out and gassed up all our vehicles and bought extra provisions. I mean, it’s only common sense. And no, we don’t stock up on bread and milk…they’re the first foods to go bad.
