How is this possible? We can get food to other countries after bombing them to bits, but can't get it to 20,000 Americans right there in Jersey?
We can get supplies to Jersey too, just not to individual people/s.
Supplies can always be delivered, but it becomes much more difficult to get them directly in flooded regions and directly to those in need if the
needy are spread out then, it's even more difficult. This is why people are encouraged to go to certain areas where delivery isn't so demanding,
dangerous, and/or even unknown to those doing the delivering.
Remember too, that these people had ample warning. I'm a bit tired of hearing how great these NY'ers are, and yet they whine whenever their supplies
aren't delivered fast enough. I'm referring to those who decided to stand their ground and expect to be served in a timely fashion, with no thoughts
to the danger of those who are working to help. Some even volunteering their help & risking their own health.
2 insignificant complaints we heard today was one lady complained because her cell phone didn't work and another complained that she couldn't get the
How do they think people existed before internet/cell phones?????
Back when all we had was land line phones.....
Was that all so long ago?
To hell with that crap, I worry about the ones with no food/water....[flash lights/batteries]
And yes, I've been there before waiting in long lines at the gas station. No fun, trust me.
TIP: Don't wait until the last minute to stock up on supplies.....bad idea.
Always start the minute they suspect a storm is headed your way.
If you need it, you've got it.
If you don't, oh well.....you're no worse off.
Use it any way, unless you want to save it.
ETA: What would happen to some of these people in a worse case SHTF scenario where there was no one to help them????
