FEMA Out of Water, No Delivery Until Monday

FEMA's vaunted "lean forward" strategy that called for advanced staging of supplies for emergency distribution failed to live up to its billing in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Really?

Bog Sis can't find no water?

How bout we call Big Sis and offer her immediate water supplies. We can start our own DP water distributorship. We can call it Liberty Water! We can sell it to DHS for a nice return on FRN's, which we can donate to a third party candidate in 2016...maybe Ron Paul for example!

Got a hose?

No ice for Katrina? No water for Sandra? What's a woman to do?

United States Postal Service® motto ~ Look upon the wisdom of ages.

Contrary to popular belief, the U.S. Postal Service ® has no official motto. However, a number of postal buildings contain inscriptions, the most familiar of which appears on the general Post Office facility on 33rd Street and 8th Avenue in New York City.

“Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat,
nor gloom of night,
stays these couriers from the swift completion
of their appointed rounds.”
---- Herodotus: 503 B.C.

William Mitchell Kendall of the architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White supplied the inscription. According to Kendall, the sentence appears in the works of Herodotus and describes the expedition of the Greeks against the Persians under Cyrus about 500 B.C. The Persians operated a system of mounted postal couriers, and the sentence describes the fidelity with which their work was done. Professor George H. Palmer of Harvard University supplied the translation, which he considered to be the most poetic of about seven translations from the Greek.

Katrina: “Neither snow, nor rain” ... the well is dry.

Sandra: “Nor heat, nor gloom of night” ... the Greek drums grow louder.

Irene: “... none stays these couriers from the swift completion... of their appointed rounds.” Wait a minute, wait a minute. [Victrola: The Marvelettes - Please Mr. Postman] Check & see.... Is there a letter? A letter for me?

So, where is the US Navy?

Nuclear and gas turbine ships produce enormous amounts of fresh water. Pull them up alongside the pier and transfer it.

By the way, boiling will NOT make water contaminated with certain toxins safe. This is one more instance when people in affected areas should have obtained portable water filtration systems well in advance of the storm.

Drydock. FEMA tells tales of woe. No water!

Sandra is dying of thirst. Katrina suffered of heat, w/o ice.

FEMA finds no solace in words of advice.

"lean forward"

strategy?? Sounds more like the "bend over" strategy...what a bunch of incompetent @ssholes.

Thats funny!

By the way, I also like your quote, do you know whos quote that is?

Thanks,

I don't know who's quote it is, I searched it awhile back and and didn't come up with anything. I got it off a Facebook group I belong to, Punk Rock Libertarians, and they didn't have it attributed to anyone either.
