Mayor Bloomberg has now abandoned Staten Island victims and has decided to redirect large power generators and police forces to a New York marathon being held today. What's emerging now is a political elite that is oblivious to the needs of the People. As Reuters reports:
"I just walked past four huge generators. Those could be put to use for people who need them," said Marjorie Dial, a tourist from Oregon who was shocked to see the generators in Central Park, where the marathon finishes. "What they've discovered on Staten Island should have been the tipping point - the bodies."
"Gas is being rationed in parts of New York and New Jersey. The pumps are running on empty -- and so is patience," reports CBS News. "That desperation is why there is so much panic buying at the pump." One fuel buyer said, "This is crazy, it's like post-apocalyptic scenarios, you know with this gas. It's as important as food and water to people. It's a dogfight out here."
they did eventually cancel it.
but they actually set up all the generators preparing for the run.....so the fact that they didn't use those for the citizens is beyond comedy and should be a wake up call to those citizens who believe they are even relevant.
