NJ: No Love for Non-Union Electrical Workers: Media Gets Mass Power for NYC Marathon Tent – Dog Search for Buried Bodies on Staten Island

Teams of electrical workers from Alabama say they were turned away from working on storm damage in New Jersey because they are non-union. Dogs are hunting for buried bodies on Staten Island and Staten Islanders say they are starving and…please do not donate to the Red Cross. New York City Mayor Bloomberg a RINO (Republican in name only) is throwing is support to Barack Obama while desperate people in his city are furious that two massive generators are providing power for the media covering the New York City marathon. The much celebrated and disdained Obama-Christie-Love is not flowing.

Staten Islanders: We are dying here!

No love in New Jersey for non-union electrical workers:

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY (WAFF) – The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews learned they’ll be doing work in Long Island, New York instead of in New Jersey.

Crews from Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can’t do any work there since they’re not union employees.

The crews that are in Roanoke, Virginia say they are just watching and waiting even though they originally received a call asking for help from Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

The crews were told to stand down. In fact, Moore said the crew from Trinity is already headed back home.

Staten Island:

“Because the devastation in Staten Island, the lack of a response,” Mr. Molinaro [Staten Island Borough President] said to explain his comment to NBC after the press conference. “You know, I went to a shelter Monday night after the storm. People were coming in with no socks, with no shoes. They were in desperate need. Their housing was destroyed. They were crying. Where was the Red Cross? Isn’t that their function? They collect millions of dollars. Whenever there’s a drive in Staten Island, we give openly and honestly. Where are they? Where are they? I was at the South Shore yesterday, people were buried in their homes. There the dogs are trying to find bodies. The people there, the neighbors who had no electricity, were making soup. Making soup. It’s very emotional because the lack of a response. The lack of a response. They’re supposed to be here….They should be on the front lines fighting, and helping the people.”

New York City Marathon:

As hundreds of thousands of Big Apple residents suffer in homes left without power by Hurricane Sandy, two massive generators are being run 24/7 in Central Park — to juice a media tent for Sunday’s New York City Marathon.

And a third “backup” unit sits idle, in case one of the generators fails.

RINO New York City Mayor Bloomberg, once a rich Democrat, turned Republican, has endorsed Obama. Game on.

    Obama vowed: “We are not going to tolerate red tape, we are not going to tolerate bureaucracy.”

    Unless, of course, that red tape is enforced by Obama’s union cronies. Then stranded residents have to wait.

  • I wish Governor Chris Christie would just come out and announce that he is a Democrat and be done with it. People are hurting and he is worried about non-union labor helping.

  • Don’t let in non-union workers, then let them stew in the mess. This is bs.

  • I see anarchy in the NE US. I see the union thugs putting themselves above those who need help. I see liberal POLS including Obama, Christie, Bloomberg and others failing to do what they accused the Bush administration of during the Katrina aftermath with a silent media.

    I was raised by members of America’s greatest generation. In my hometown people pulled together during times of great difficulty. We were raised to do that. America mattered and so did our traditional values. We are now on the cusp of a national breakdown with the 2012 elections providing the backdrop.

    Either we renew our principles and ideals forged by our founding fathers or we allow some strange ideology to dictate where America goes from here. I for one will fight to my last breath to support the America I grew up in and not let the whackjob liberals hijack the America we all know.

    I cannot type my last thought, not because it is politically incorrect but my parents taught me better. I will simply say that I reject President Obama and the liberal ideology of his followers. My heroes are not socialists, they are American patriots like Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and numerous others.

    God bless America and the Americans wno know how to defend this great nation.
