    Victims of an unforgiving one-two punch from superstorm Sandy and a nor'easter that both hit New York's Staten Island say FEMA has forgotten them.

    Already without power for more than a week in the wake of Sandy, hard-hit residents of the borough's South Shore braved a winter storm Wednesday night, with many -- perhaps hundreds -- huddling in condemned homes and ignoring orders to evacuate out of fear looters would take what little Mother Nature has left them.

    "FEMA packed up everything yesterday and left the area," said MaryLou Wong, whose home in the Midland Beach neighborhood was destroyed. "They haven't come back."

    What happened to this people? At one point the thought of "Federal Aid" coming to assist rebuilding would have insulted Americans. How far the mighty have fallen.

    Who cares?! The fact that FEMA is stretched thin shouldnt factor at all in to helping the people in Staten Island. Nor should it factor into the people there stepping up and fixing their problems.

    The more you spend, the more you should not spend.

    Not spending is saving. This is a tennet of the Republican party, one that is alien to Liberals.
