    On fox news that some of the Hurricane Sandy victims are still without a home and without power in this sub freezing weather. Some of them have tents and propane heaters that don't do the job. This shit would not happen here in the south where people truly care about each other. All the shelters would be open, the Red cross on site, all the churches would be open and taking people in.. wtf is going on up there?

    They don't have "sub freezing" weather in the South. Good thing, too, given the fact that so much of that population lives in shacks.

    Goddammit, willow, go easy on the meds.

    You are right. The big flood we had her ein 2011, everyone helped everyone! It really was amazing the way everyone came together. Made me proud. I lost my house, but I have family close so I was ok. If I didn't someone would have helped me and my son.
    Then look at LA and the way they handled Katrina. Pathetic
    According to CC, obama was doing a good job. Wonder if he would say that now?

    Then why is it when I did charity work for Katrina relief, we were processing so many people for NEW YORK shelters that came up from Mississippi and Louisiana?

    :doubt:

    We had Katrina victims all the way over here in the Panhandle. and all of what I mentioned went into full effect until it was no longer needed. We fed em, we bed em, we located em. we got their medications refilled, we got them housing. we got them what they needed.

    How many did you send to New York? We sent a lot of our overflow to Houston until they got innundated to the max. So the question is why are the Sandy guys out in the cold? do we need to put them on a bus and send them somewhere who cares?
