    Okay, maybe “quiet” was the wrong word.

    Must be the calm before the storm. Literally.

    Guess who forgot to put bottled water on the shopping list?

    FEMA

    FEMA only began to solicit bids for vendors to provide bottled water for distribution to Hurricane Sandy victims on Friday, sending out a solicitation request for 2.3 million gallons of bottled water at the FedBizOpps.gov website. Bidding closed at 4:30 pm eastern.

    Breitbart News spoke with contracting officer Annette Wright, who said that the winning vendor would be required to deliver the 2.3 million gallons of bottled water to an East Farmingdale, New York distribution center that was listed in the solicitation request by Monday, November 5th.

    Seems like the city and state of NY forgot to add it to their shopping lists as well.

    @ Mike C.:

    Of all natural disasters, none gives more warning these days than a hurricane approaching a coastal area of the US, and most especially when it’s approaching an area that only rarely gets hurricanes. People knew for wEEKS this was a possible outcome, and did fuck-all. Everybody from individuals up through local, state and federal government. At least the individuals aren’t paid big bucks to think about this stuff.

    Correct me if I’m mistaken, but did Bloomberg ask the Feds to pick up the tab for NYC?

    Oh dear. I guess they forgot the food, too.

    The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has placed a rush order of two million meals to be delivered to Floyd Bennett New York Harbor Parks, and Lakehurst New Jersey.

    The solicitation was placed at 2:30 pm EST on 2 November 2012, with a response time of no later than 8 pm on the same day.

    The solicitation was amended less than four hours later for providers to provide a quote of four million meals, preferably of the self-heating variety.

    The request is for self-heating Meals Ready to Eat (MRE) with a 13-month shelf life preferred, and delivered wrapped and palletized by 4:30 PM local time on Monday, 5 November 2012.

    One half will be shipped to Floyd Bennett New York Harbor Parks and that will be due on 6 Nov 2012, the other one million will ship to Lakehurst New Jersey and be due the following day.

    That would be, because Mayor Bloomingidiot spent the emergency supplies money

    1) Suing Virgina and Texas for legally selling firearms in Virgina and Texas.

    2) Suing New York City Restaurants for using to much salt.

    3) Suing fast food Restaurants for offering their customers 32oz soft drinks.

    4) Suing Snack Machine Vendors that supply public schools for putting snack foods in the public school vending machines.

    You have got to be kidding me? Bloomberg did this? Idiot.

    Report: NYC Mayor Bloomberg Wouldn’t Let National Guard Into Brooklyn Over Their Possession Of Guns

    Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.

    “We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”

    Markowitz demanded the National Guard’s help just an hour before Bloomberg’s press conference, claiming that the NYPD and FDNY are “brave — but overwhelmed” by all the challenges Sandy brought when it visited the borough on Monday night: flooding, power outages, and looting.

    “All of our resources have been stretched to the limit,” Markowitz said. “In the name of public safety we need to send more National Guard personnel into Coney Island, Manhattan Beach, Gerritsen Beach, Red Hook, and any other locations.”

    Markowitz hopes that the sight of an armed soldier would deter criminal activity in the still-unaccessible evacuation zones — such as the rash of break-ins that took place in Coney Island hours after Sandy kissed the borough goodbye — but the Mayor said the NYPD was more than capable of handling the job

    It’ by Dick Morris..but doesn’t look like it the storm is going to help obama…

    Obama Hit By Storm Backlash

    Natural disasters usually follow the same political trajectory: First the incumbent experiences a bounce as he tours the impacted area, shows his concern, and pledges help to his beleaguered constituents. But then reality sets in and the shortages, delays, mishaps, deaths, and devastation becomes apparent and people turn against the incumbent.

    George W. Bush had his Katrina.

    And now Barack Obama has his Sandy.

    Last week, Obama asserted a kind of ownership of the storm by touring New Jersey in the now infamous embrace of Republican stalwart Governor Chris Christie. Now that we are all appalled by the lack of food, gas, water, heat, and the basic essentials of life throughout the storm zone, Obama’s government doesn’t look so good anymore.

    Why didn’t FEMA stockpile food, water, and gasoline? We had a week’s notice to prepare for Sandy. There was no shortage of time. Did the government not realize that people needed to eat, drink, and drive?

    Coupled with his other statement Bill Mayers lives on another planet in my opinion…disgusting …

    Obama Mega-Donor Bill Maher Fired Up: This Election Is “The Last Hurrah For The Whites”…

    HBO’s Bill Maher said during his show’s Friday broadcast that he thinks the upcoming presidential election might be the last time Republicans can rely heavily on support from white voters, whose influence and importance he said is decreasing as the electorate becomes more diverse.

    Maher rattled off some statistics to back up a recent claim by South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham that the Republican Party’s traditional “angry white” voters are becoming a minority. [...]

    “This is the last hurrah for the whites, is it not?” Maher said. “It’s like the Battle of the Bulge, really.”
