Hurricane Sandy Victims to Obama: “We Are Living Like Animals.”

The trail of devastation left by Hurricane Sandy has been long and trying for those still overcoming setbacks.

An estimated 300 residents in Hicksville, Long Island, took to the street on Saturday protesting the Long Island Power Authority at its headquarters for ongoing power outages 12 days after the storm hit the area — the second protest against the energy provider this weekend.

There are still over a quarter million New York customers without power. As of Friday more than 170,000 of those customers were on Long Island, many of them staying in temporary shelters.

More than 500 angry LIPA customers in Oceanside staged a similar protest at a LIPA news conference on Friday saying the energy provider was giving them the run-around and they wanted to know why, CBS reported.

Many of the protestors were chanting ‘LIPA sucks.’

Electric utilities have taken heat for being slow to restore power throughout the region. For a large number of those without power, no electricity means no heat, hot water or hot meals.

New Yorkers also faced their second day of gasoline rationing under a system introduced in New Jersey last week, in which cars with odd- and even-numbered license plates can fill up only on alternate days.

‘It’s been terrible,’ Diane Uhlfelder, a former New York City police officer at the protest in Hicksville, told a Reuters reporter.New Yorkers also faced their second day of gasoline rationing under a system introduced in New Jersey last week, in which cars with odd- and even-numbered license plates can fill up only on alternate days.

    WHOA! OBAMA CANT BE BOTHERED. HE’S GOT A GOLF GAME TO PLAY! OLD GW WOULDA BEEN ROASTED LIKE A MALLARD DUCK IF HE BEHAVED LIKE OBLABLAH! WHOA!

    • Stan

      He still is! You know its Bush fault for all of Obamas failures. Least thats what his people say!

    Not Katrina on the Hudson, because the news media are active DEFENDERS of THIS president.

    • Margaret Nahmias

      They may not call it that, but it is.,

  • ronchris

    Obama doesn’t give a damn about white people.

    • WellNowDear

      He doesn’t care about black people, either. All he cares about is more power and more money. While the American people suffer he engages in his pleasure with his boyfriends and splurges on expensive vacations for his wife and daughters.
      And I don’t want to hear on this site about what other presidents have done in the past. That was then, this is now. People are always trying to take attention from what O is doing by saying what Bush did in the past. All I have to say to them is, “Shut the hell up.” I for one are tired of reading their crap.

    • stonemike

      Facts are facts, he and most progressives are white haters! Afterall, we had the audacity to build productive societies while the black race has sat on its arse!

  • MoReport

    Relief efforts are primarily a state and city responsibility, not a federal one;
    Protest to Cuomo and Bloomberg for their failure to prepare, and spare a
    moment to ask: Is it true that out-of-state non-union electrical repair crews
    were not allowed to help, and went home in disgust ?

    • M_Becker

      While I agree that both first response and relief efforts are a local responsibility, the people who were out to hang GWB for FEMA’s response to Katrina – while state and local officials did absolutely nothing – should be tarred and feathered.

      Second part is, “Why the hell are we spending billions on FEMA?” On LI, they shut their offices down last week due to “bad weather”. Why hasn’t the FEMA director been lynched from the same tree they hung “Brownie”?

      And yes, some non-union out of state electrical crews were sent away. So were trucks with generators that were delivered by non-union drivers.

    • JohnnyL53

      And yet, right after the hurricane I was reading all sorts of things about Romney wanting to get rid of FEMA and where would we be without the great Federal government response to Sandy.

    • stonemike

      Yep, but the progressive lap dogs of the northeast just keep sucking unions and the “janitor turned president”!

    LIPA sucks…is that liposuction?

      Hahaha…yup! That sucking sound is your tax dollars going down the drain. Welcome to O’s World. Not gonna be pretty.

  • Amfer Ferg

    Hey, all you Sandy victims in New Jersey, go ask Gov Christie for a hug – you’ll feel better.

    • stonemike

      We just call christie “Mr Suicide”! I went from admiration to despising the sucky from New Jersey!

  • ketma

    I think this is only the beginning. Watch for an earthquake. Welcome to the new America.

  • Bulldog74

    And these are the people who are supposed to manage health care?
    Not to rub salt in the wound, NY & NJ (after all, I’m up here in deep blue New England), but you did vote these people into office by a wide margin.

    • taliesin319

      I’m from NJ and we are stuck with the bamaphone brigade and every other work avoiding leech who voted for this charlatan. Take care of your family and trust only in God. Let the ones who hate Him enjoy their Socialist soon to be Marxist Government. They will have ample time to learn that bread is earned by work.

      • Bulldog74

        Amen, like I said, being in MA I know just where you’re at

    When contacted for comment President Obama exclaimed”Fore!”.

    Hicksville, how apropos. So when exactly did all that Big Government largess and splendid service start? Mayor Blooming Idiot, your fans are calling and they don’t want a 32 oz cup, they want your head on a pike.Yes, the silver lining is that Mayor Stupid will Not be serving another term as mayor after this debacle..

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Harold-Thomas/1561206038 Harold Thomas

    How about that. It turns out that depending on the gov’t for life’s essentials is a poor survival strategy…

  • werewife

    After the election, I took an oath not to give another penny to any secular charity ever again, and that includes disaster relief. Sorry, humans – you voted for a Brobdingnagian government to take care of you like pets and solve all your problems for you. You don’t need MY help anymore…

    • Sweetrae

      Great points, and pets is a good analogy. They remind me of baby birds in a nest with there mouths open waiting for the regurgitated morsels to be dropped down their throats.

  • Sweetrae

    Well the people on the east coast voted for more government and forget self reliance. I have to agree with werewife’s statement. Keep waiting for Maobama, Christie, and Bumblingberg to help you. It’s going to be a long winter for you people. Maybe Bruce Springsteen will fly his private jet over all of you and wave. Nope people my family we are stocking up on non-perishable food, water, looking into getting a generator here soon and NOT expecting the government to save us. As Ronald Reagan said: ” Government isn’t the answer, government IS the problem”. I bought something at Walgreens over the weekend and was asked if I wanted to contribute money to the Red Cross to help Sandi victims, Nope sorry. I guess if the Red Cross could give Maobama free air time, they don’t need my money.

  • Margaret Nahmias

    This disgusts me. In my own first world country. The irony I am sure victims of the recent Earthquake in Guatemala got a better response.

    Sadly, most people just don’t get it. Obama has done nothing but campaign & play golf since he got elected the first time. He could care less about the problems any legal citizen might have. What he says he will do, & what he actually does are two different things. This Anti-America, Muslim, Communist, has but one goal in mind, & that is to destroy the USA.

  • taliesin319

    People throughout the devastated states proudly boarded buses to re-elect this liar and cheat. 52 % of this Nation want everything in their lives to be run by Barry and Valerie who don’t care one iota about them now that their vote has been counted. They wanted God out of their lives. They got what they asked for, indeed insisted on and now they can live with the cause of their joy.

  • stonemike

    Yeah, you can tell by the pic over the article, obammis “roughing it” too.

    • Stan

      Why sure ! He feels your pain! Hes probably thinking “Suckers”! No one can stop him now. Enjoy!

  • Stan

    Wait till Obama shuts the coal industry down, think how long you will wait then! Would it not be better to wait till we had a viable alternative fuel first? Nah! Obama wants them shut down now. The king has spoken.

  • littlepat

    Obama doesn’t care about your problems. He’s only concerned with what he wants and he doesn’t care what he has to do to get it. If everyone who is now without power or a roof over their heads had voted for Romney maybe you would have gotten quicker results. Not sure, but just maybe.

  • msbets

    HEY, MOST OF THESE NITWITS WENT OUT AND VOTED FOR THE SOB, SO THEY GET WHAT THEY DESERVE, NOT ONCE IN FOUR YEARS HAS THIS BASS TURD DONE A GOOD DEED FOR THIS COUNTRY OR KEPT ONE OF IT’S RIDICULOUS PROMIES, IT IS ALL ABOUT CONTROL AND IF YOU PEOPLE ARE SO WEAK AS TO PUT THIS MONGREL BACK IN OUR OVAL OFFICE, I SAY BE DAMNED WITH YOU!!

  • URKiddinMee

    So Obozo’s supporters think their Community Organizer in Chief cares what happens to them now that his photo op is finished? That would be funny if it weren’t so sad.

  • machodog

    Hicksville residents…at least 48% of you voted for obama thinking he’d be your savior because “he said so”. You reap what you sow. You will crash and burn in your plight under the obama administration. Accept it…it’s coming.

  • http://www.facebook.com/roger.wolfe.547 Roger Wolfe

    “Living like animals” – get used to it…you want big government – you got it…

  • $12994363

    So, these liberal pukes who re-elected the President of the Golf Course expected differently?? He came for his video op’s before the election, he got them all excited as a whore would a john, and, now that the election is over, they returned him to office, he can give them the his middle finger.
    Which is precisely what this miserable excuse for a president, let alone a human, is.
    To those in the devastated areas, who have my sympathy but will get nothing more from me, get off your bums and do it the American way. Hard work and perseverance without the government doing everything for you. Had you been thinking and acting as such before, during, and after this storm you would not be sitting there screaming for everyone else to bail you out. Which brings to mind the question to all of you who were dear the ocean in the first place: Are you so ignorant of what that ocean is capable of? Or did you just thumb your nose at it? The latter is, obviously, the answer.
    And now you will want the rest of the country to bail you out of your poor choices. Nothing new here, New Orleans showed exactly the same hubris.
    Suffice it to say, it WILL happen again. And again. And again. Until stupid people understand that they will not change nature regardless of how many times they curse the storm.

  • LARA

    HE DOES NOT CARE….

  • LARA

    AFTER OBAMA GAVE YOU A HUG CHRISTI WHERE IS THE HELP???? HE GOT A PHOTO OPT AND YOU GOT THE SHAFT..HAPPY YET???

  • PatriotActor

    Aren’t those the people who voted in Michael Bloomberg, Obama, and Christie? What the heck are they whining about? Didn’t they get all that special attention they all so rabidly elected?

    • neilshog

      Right on Patriot. If people would bow down to God and depend on Him instead of government they wouldn’t be disappointed. That’s what they get when they make gods out of mere men.

    Obama could’nt care less about all the people living in the dark.If there is an Muslim God, or close, Obama was sent here by him, to complety destory America.It will come out after he is out of office.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Fred-Mitchell/100000126962566 Fred Mitchell

    The people have to remember,that Obama is half muslim,And Obama dreams are what Obama s dad told him.We had it soft the last 4 years.You won’t have to go to hell, it will be around you.This last 4 yrs are when we are gonna get the haymaker.
