I Have Seen The Future And It Is Sandy

…These catastrophes only foreshadow the inevitable economic collapse. It can be instructive to see how people act when they cannot get fuel, when they have no electricity, when they can’t charge the phones on which they have become so dependent. It will get worse…

…Nothing would have prevented Sandy for striking land. That was an act of nature, but there are a great many in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania who now understand the consequences of an economic collapse much, much better than they did before. They understand that photo ops and concerned looks on the faces of politicians don’t put fuel in the tank, electricity through the wires, or food on the counter. They feel abandoned and betrayed. Good.

My pleas for leadership arise from this very issue. We need to have people out there pointing this out to as many people as we can. Here is the future if America is allowed to continue on its current path of socialism. These are the lies government tells you. These are the conditions to which you will become accustomed.

Utility workers pelted with eggs after Bridgeport, Conn. mayor blasts provider

Angry residents pelted utility crews with eggs as they tried to restore power in Bridgeport, Conn., after the mayor claimed the local power company had “shortchanged” the state’s largest city as it tries to recover from superstorm Sandy.

United Illuminating workers reported eggs and other objects being thrown at them a day after Mayor Bill Finch said the utility was taking care of wealthy suburbs while his constituents suffered. The unrest caused United Illuminating to pull its workers out until the city agreed to provide police protection.

“Citizens began throwing things at the crews,” Michael West, a spokesman for United Illuminating, told FoxNews.com. “It started to get pretty hairy. They did not feel safe.”…

CAJ note: Davis’s article mistakenly notes this incident took place in New York. We blogged about this major corruptocrat, Bill Finch, recently.

Non-union good Samaritan electrical workers turned away by union workers A video at GlennBeck.com

This story confirms every negative union stereotype in existence today. When a group of honorable, decent electric workers from down south dropped everything they were doing to help out storm victims in the north — they were turned away by the unions for not being union workers…

…When discussing the story during the program, Glenn said that the story represents a fundamental change in America.

“That’s what Americans do.  They get off their butt in Decatur when they see a problem and they go.  They get in their trucks and say, “Bill, come on, let’s go.”  And they get in their truck and they drive across the country at their own expense and they take care of it.”

“This is the fundamental transformation of America.  Listen to this.  If this is what you want, if you want to be a group of people that cannot do it any other way.  The president just said, ‘Don’t take no for an answer.”  Well, that’s what we do best.  That’s what we do best.  We don’t take no for an answer,” he said.

“But everything’s too big to fail and so you can’t, you can’t build that on your own.  The government will do it for you.  And so what happens when there’s trouble?  You can’t ask an anybody for help.  You can’t do that.  You’ve got ‑‑ ‘No, no, no.  Wait for the union worker.  Wait for the government.  Wait for someone else.’  I don’t want to be a part of that.  That’s not the country I was born in.  I don’t want to be a part of that country.  If I wanted that, I’d go live some place else.  I’ll go live in England, which is about to be destroyed.  That’s not our country.  That’s not who we are.  Fundamental transformation.”

Economic Ignorance Further Hampers Hurricane Sandy Victims

The miles-long lines at beleaguered service stations in the aftermath of Sandy is a testament to an elementary economic reality; sharply higher prices are mandatory in a disaster. During such a radical supply/demand altering event, sharply higher prices must prevail in order for more consumers to receive the desperately-needed commodity. And the economic ignorance of politicians who vow mass prosecutions for price gouging — as popular as it may be with the media and the affected masses — only serves to thwart the survival and recovery efforts of the victims…

FEMA Out of Water, No Delivery Until Monday

FEMA’s vaunted “lean forward” strategy that called for advanced staging of supplies for emergency distribution failed to live up to its billing in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

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 [10/26/12]…
