11 days without power, Sandy
victims want answers

CBS, by Staff (CBS/AP)

Original Article

Posted By:JimJr, 11/9/2012 1:25:16 PM

Eleven days after Hurricane Sandy made landfall, hundreds of thousands of utility customers in New York and New Jersey are still without power - and they want answers. Unfortunately, the answers provided by the power companies have generated even more anger and frustration. When asked Thursday night when power may be restored, LIPA Chief Operating Officer Michael Hervey told CBS Station WCBS the utility is aiming for the middle of next week. WCBS reports one spokesman suggested power may not be fully restored until Thanksgiving.

Comments:
No power until Thanksgiving! We get storms like this every year on the Gulf Coast and it never takes a month to restore power. (LIPA is correct in requiring all homeowners who got flooded to get an electrical inspection.) Finally, pay attention to the lady in the last paragraph. It explains what happened last Tuesday.

What's the problem OP? Is this lady to supposed to repair her own electrical lines and turn on her electricity? Of course this is America and someone should be there to help her! NO ONE should go without power for this long! It's 2012 for Pete's sake! And I don't give a rat's about your experience on the gulf!

Where is the outcries against Obozo? He's your guy NY-NJ. Why aren't you dumping on him for this mess like you did Bush? If it wasn't for the storms which no one has control over, I'd say, " you people created this nightmare of a government. You get what you pay for just like the idiots in CA"

Zippy had his photo opp and you are on your own now. if this had happened in a foreign country, he would be all over it with troops on the ground.

It's not just power, they have damaged homes and some no homes. Sewage and garbage will be a nightmare. They are afraid to leave because of looting.

#1, we all have done without power for far longer than 11 days. Yeah it rough but this is what you get for having unions. Our electric co-op sent crews to help. We had a devastating ice storm a few years back, our electric lines sustained a lot of damage. They got the power it took them weeks, but they are now, this year, putting in new poles and running new lines. We never heard a thing from Obama nor any federal agency. It was cold, the middle of winter, we as communities helped each other, oh it took a year and a half to pick up the debris from the downed trees, since the summer drought and the still damaged trees we are still having effects of that ice storm.

The truth is that thousands of transformers were destroyed, and there isn't the stock to replace them all. Government efficiency standards have driven many smaller manufacturers out of business, leading to a consolidation of manufacturers who, operating near capacity already, can't possibly absorb the additional demand. It's going to take weeks. Many weeks.

Now only the conscience of the utility workers rewards them for restoring power. The crews are getting unlimited overtime and their jobs are secure. Why kill the Golden Goose?

And for the utilities and suppliers, why restart or repair any marginal equipment? The money is coming in, replace anything and everything you can with brand new hardware.

The good job done by most is to their credit. But unlimited funding from Washington and Albany changes everything it touches.

I find it ironic that NJ and NY went overwhelmingly for Obama. God forgive me but this is what they get from trusting Obama or anything out of his mouth. Some people just don't get it the first, second or third time. Maybe they'll get it now. Too little too late for them. Reality bites.

Non-union Electricians came from all around the conservative states and attempted to help these leftist whiners, and their own electric and government unions called the other electricians Scabs, spit on them and drove them away. I know this first hand. This did happen. They are on their own now, because nobody with half a brain is going to spend their time, money or good will to go back up there.You get what you vote for.

Sounds like there was no gameplan for a wide-spread storm. Couldn't they call-in electrical repair people from all across the country? Probably no - due to union work rules - and the people suffer.

Since the media failed to report on the conditions, only the heroic response of Obama, oh well. I am praying for them, but there is blood on the media's hand. I heard Hannity talkign about it, but it came across as gotcha reporting, fair or not.

When you vote for pols who believe in solar and wind blah, blah, and not coal and oil extraction and execution...well then you revert to cave man days.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
