The dangers from this event aren't just from a single hurricane - there are two cold fronts sweeping in from the west.

ONE THIRD of the country's population will be affected by this Frankenstorm.

How you can help:

The Red Cross will be taking donations, as will other reputable organizations. Please be sure to check out the organization to make sure it's legit.

Donate blood.

If you're a utility worker, medical professional, or social worker your help is needed. If you are able-bodied, armies of sandbaggers are needed. If you live in or near the affected areas, call your emergency management agency, local police or fire department, county sheriff's department, or local Civil Defense group (if there is one.)

Millions of people will have their homes damaged or destroyed by floods - the runoff from mountains will cause valley rivers to overflow their banks, and that water will be rushing much faster than usual.

FEET of snow is predicted for mountain areas, particularly in West Virginia. Power lines WILL come down, leaving hundreds of thousands, mostly children, in freezing cold.

If you want to help, but don't know what to do, call the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, or your pastor, who can help organize physical donations like food, water, blankets, baby needs, hygiene supplies, over-the-counter medicines, pet supplies, and laundry soap.

if you contribute to Red Cross, if you want your donation to directly go for Hurricane Sandy victims, be sure to state that.

We pay taxes to finance dozens of "green energy" companies that go bankrupt.

We pay taxes to bail out poorly-managed car companies.

We pay taxes to "stimulate" job creation and subsidize useless programs like "cash for clunkers".

We pay taxes to bail out banks and insurance companies and people who can't afford to pay their mortgages, etc.

Where have you been the past four years? :confused:

Clinton's surplus didn't generate enough money to pay for the upcoming mess that Sandy's going to leave us.

I'm sure the gods will make note of who gives a shit and who doesn't.

U.S military responds to Hurricane Sandy...
:cool:
Military prepares for Sandy impact
October 29th, 2012 - The U.S. military is preparing to help with response to Hurricane Sandy and working to protect its own equipment.
Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was "monitoring" the storm from the Pentagon on Monday, according to a tweet from his press secretary George Little. Over the weekend, Panetta appointed "dual status" commanders, according to the Department of Defense website. The commanders are authorized to command both federal and state National Guard forces. "This special authority enables them to effectively integrate the defense support operations and capabilities that Governors request. The Secretary is prepared to quickly agree to similar requests from other States," according to a press release about the decision.

The decision was made by Panetta at the request of governor from Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Rhode Island Over the weekend, the National Guard had approximately 1,500 forces on active duty in New York, Massachussets, Virginia, Delaware, Connecticut and Maryland. The troops are assisting local first responders and the Federal Emergency Management Agency with route clearance, search and rescue, equipment and supplies delivery and evacuations.

U.S. Northern Command has put helicopters, planes, and rescue teams on alert to be ready to deploy as needed. In addition to aiding in response, the military has been moving aircraft and ships to avoid damage during the storm. Bases in New York, New Jersey and Delaware have all moved aircraft, according to the Department of Defense. The Navy has also moved vessels including the USS Wasp, USS Taylor USNS Kanawa, USNS Medgar Evers and the USS Ross.

Standing guard through Hurricane Sandy at the Tomb of the Unknowns
October 29th, 2012 - The Army's Old Guard continues their duty as sentinals at the Tomb of the Unknowns even as Hurricane Sandy looms closer to Arlington National Cemetery.
The tomb has been guarded continuously since 1937. Service in the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) is considered to be an assignment of the highest honor for soldiers. Their dedication to the duty is so strong that when Hurricane Isabel approached, the soldiers were ordered to seek safety. It was an order they disobeyed, and the Tomb was guarded throughout the storm.

CNN requested an opportunity to visit the tomb today to videotape the soldiers carrying out their duty. We were told that because of the weather, the cemetery was closed to visitors and that the members of the guard have switched to camouflage uniforms. The Army does not want them photographed or videotaped wearing anything other than their traditional dress uniforms.

Because, its a terrible idea to try and give governmental to support green energy to avert both global warming and energy dependance. The way republicans frame this is so fucking stupid.

A warm place with no memory.
Between St. Judes, Make a Wish, the USO, and my daughter's friend with leukemia... I'm a bit tapped out. I'll let Obama handle this one.

Block of homes destroyed as Sandy floodwater hampers fire crews...
:eek:
50 homes destroyed as six-alarm blaze rips through Queens
30 Oct.`12 -- At least 50 homes were destroyed in the New York City borough of Queens early Tuesday as crews battled a six-alarm fire.
Officials said the fire was reported at about 11 p.m. ET on Monday in a flooded Zone A area. In a tweet, the FDNY said:

QNS 6-6 BREEZY POINT FIRE, 50+ HOMES COMPLETELY DESTROYED BY FIRE
30 Oct 12

A fire department spokesman said that almost 200 firefighters were at the scene in the Breezy Point section of the Rockaway peninsula in Queens. Fire officials would not confirm any injuries. The cause of the fire was not immediately known.

Obama declares major disaster in New York as Sandy pounds Northeast
30 Oct.`12 - National Weather Service predicts 'historic and life-threatening coastal flooding' through Tuesday morning as superstorm leaves at least 10 dead
President Barack Obama declared a major disaster in parts of New York state Tuesday as superstorm Sandy pounded the Northeast coast, sweeping homes out into the ocean, flooding New York City subway tunnels and leaving millions without power. In New Jersey, rising waters sparked an alert at the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant while Geanne Baratta, chief of the Bergen County Executive, told Reuters that the towns of Moonachie, Little Ferry and Carlstadt had been "devastated" by the sudden arrival of 4 to 5 feet of water. "We are in rescue mode,'' Baratta said.

Local officials told Reuters the water had broken through a levee; police told NBCNewYork.com that 2,000 people were displaced within 30 minutes of the "incident" but were unable to confirm if it was caused by a breach or simply the tide topping the barrier. The historic storm hurled a wall of water of up to 13 feet high at the Northeast coast, killing at least 10 people Monday, leaving more than 7 million were without power and causing widespread damage. More than a million people across a dozen states had been ordered to evacuate. "I think the losses will be almost incalculable," New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told TODAY.

Power outages are expected to be widespread and could last for days. NBC meteorologist Bill Karins warned to "expect the cleanup and power outage restoration to continue right up through Election Day." New York University Medical Center was moving about 215 patients to other hospitals because its backup generator was out, the hospital said. Critical patients — including infants in neonatal intensive care — were being taken by ambulance to Mount Sinai Hospital, Memorial Sloan-Kettering and New York Presbyterian Hospital.

I thought government was our savior, that is why we are supposed to pay taxes, they fix everything and we need not worry about this. Obama and FEMA can now swoop in and fix it all.

Besides according to the liberals, nobody gives to charity, it has to be forced. So, just let the government force us, they know what is best for us.
