Paging Obama: "We are here for you"

It’s been four months since Hurricane Sandy hit, devastating many in New York and New Jersey. Obama made this promise: “We are here for you, and we will not forget, we will follow-up … until you rebuild. We will not quit until this is done. … We are not going to tolerate red tape.” So much for promises…

Wheelchair-Bound Girl Remains Trapped In Apartment 4 Months After Sandy Hit

CBS New York: Recovery from Hurricane Sandy has been slow for lots of people in our area. But for one little girl in Coney Island, the aftermath of the storm has left her trapped inside her apartment for months.
Schania Burgess, 8, is wheelchair-bound and has not been outside since Sandy hit. Her mother said the elevators in their high-rise building on Surf Avenue and 24th Street have been out of order for months, leaving Schania a virtual prisoner in their third-floor apartment.
Burgess has not been able to go to school as a result and said she misses her friends and art class the most. Instead, she is being home-schooled by an instructor.
As CBS 2′s Kristine Johnson reported, Schania’s mother said it’s very frustrating as a parent. “As you could see, she’s in a wheelchair. You have to take her down the steps if you want to go outside and since the storm, like I said, she has not been outside at all,” Scherry Barnett said.
Adding insult to injury, Schania’s apartment is a duplex with the bedrooms downstairs. Since the elevators are not working, the little girl has to sleep on a cot next to the kitchen.
Scherry said she’s fed up with the building and wants to move to an apartment that’s “barrier free,” but she said it’s hard to find one for her and her four children.
CBS 2 tried to get in touch with the building’s management to find out when the elevators would be fixed. A building security guard asked CBS 2 to leave the premises and calls to the management office were not returned.
Can you imagine the outrage if this was happening under Romney’s watch? But, as usual, the SRM gives Obama a pass.

Friends, We, the People, must cease believing the feral gubbmint is in any way interested in looking after the immense majority of US citizens and residents. Since the imposition of the Fed Res Bank in 1913, and following the deliberate creation of governance by corporatism shortly afterwards, the over-riding concern of all federal activities has been to further the vested interests of the population’s top 1% and the withering of the rest. Two generations later a prominent US Roman Catholic Senator was elected in spite of fears that that the Pope would sit with him as ruler. He was soon… Read more »

Why there’s not a complete uproar going on over this, and all the other things left undone, and things done that should not have been even considered, let alone put into action. All I see on the internet is that people are pretty much shocked by the way the WH behaves, and how congress just gooes along with the WH as the United States is being taken apart and sold of for scrap to a larger extent every day. Of course Brennan shouldn’t be put in charge of the CIA, and the new Secretary of the Treasury is a off… Read more »

Oh, Lord… let me tell you.. I’m actually a Jersey Shore resident living right where they film the dreadful show, “The Jersey Shore” more or less, like literally, give or take 10 mins (without literally revealing my actual location). Anyways, I could go on and on about what is actually being done here, which is more like a big nothing. You know who is helping us? US. I mean, yes, I will say when the storm first came and went, we had truck loads of stuff come in to all different churches and places and we had all those different… Read more »
