The city of Atlanta was hit with a major ice storm yesterday, hundreds of people were stranded on highways and schools for more than 23 hours… and it’s no surprise that the Democratic mayor–did nothing.
The result was gridlock on freeways that are jammed even on normal days. Countless vehicles were stranded and many of them abandoned. Officials said 239 children spent Tuesday night aboard school buses; thousands of others stayed overnight in their schools.
One woman’s 12-mile commute home took 16 hours. Another woman gave birth while stuck in traffic; police arrived just in time to help. Drivers who gave up trying to get home took shelter at fire stations, churches and grocery stores.
CNN did a good job drilling Mayor Reed on WHY he did nothing, but notice how good he is at passing the blame: It was the teacher’s fault. This morning–they were blaming the weatherman–because George Bush wasn’t around. Yes, it’s got to be rough when your President is a democrat and you are the mayor of a big city, and you can’t blame the President when you &$% up and your own citizens are mad at you.
But…guess what? Remember when the Mayor of New Orleans blamed President George W. Bush for Katrina?
Ray Nagin rose to American political fame in swift, albeit uncensored, fashion — as the New Orleans mayor who publicly trashed and pleaded with President George W. Bush to save his city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. “Flying over in Air Force One doesn’t do it justice,” Nagin said during a radio interview a few days after the storm hit on Aug. 29, 2005.
Then the photo came out, of George flying over New Orleans and not even landing. Why, he should have sent in the 45th battalion! They never got over it, and to this day, President George W. Bush is blamed for the misery suffered after Katrina. But…it wasn’t his fault. He was actually following the law. By our Constitution, if you have a disaster in your city, it’s the Mayor and the Governor of that state that are responsible to handle it. The Federal government can only come in when ASKED. And nobody asked the President for DAYS.
Nobody Thinks that was because Nagin really messed up big time…the democrats manipulated it so that the President would be blamed, instead of the mayor.
When does a democrat NOT blame a republican for something that they do?
Wal-Mart came to the rescue when Mayor Nagin was sitting around bitching about everything. But that’s democrats. Nagin was such a crook. He is just now being persecuted for what he did during the time of Katrina. (READ ABOUT THAT HERE)
President George W. Bush did right by not landing…he really was thinking of the people. The whole apparatus of Air Force One would have been a headache at the time when people didn’t need one. Nevertheless…that didn’t stop Obama from landing In New Jersey and getting his photo-op with Chris Christie while he made all kinds of promises those suffering people after Hurricane Sandy—-
Which of course, were all lies.
The CNN reporter is right: It was the mayor’s fault. He should have salted those roads. Atlanta is not doing too good financially, and if Kasim is anything like Nagin, who knows what corruption he is in? As for the democratic governor, Nathan Deal?
Around the time the traffic jam started, Deal and Reed were at an award ceremony recognizing the mayor as the “2014 Georgian of the Year.” Deal spokesman Brian Robinson said the governor left before 1:30 p.m. and was in constant contact with emergency officials.
Nevertheless: It’s already been suggested that the small communities cannot handle things at all. All power should just be put in the hands of the President. I actually heard that on CNN. They can’t blame George Bush, so they are going to do the next best thing: Take all power away from the states and put that power in the hands of Obama.
Nobody Wins when democrats run the country.
So whatever happened to Nagin? He’s going to court:
The indictment states Nagin accepted more than $160,000 in bribes and truckloads of free granite for his family business in exchange for promoting the interests of businessman Frank Fradella — who secured millions of dollars in city contract work after the hurricane. The hurricane and its aftermath killed roughly 1,800 people and cost an estimated $108 billion.
Nagin moved to Dallas after leaving office and founded CRN Initiatives LLC, which specializes in publishing, public speaking and emergency preparedness.
You cannot make this stuff up.
Are you ready for this?
In 90 days.
According to its engineers, this will be the tallest skyscraper in the world by the end of March of 2013. Its name is Sky City, and its 2,749 feet (838 meters) distributed in 220 floors will grow in just 90 days in Changsha city, by the Xiangjiang river. They also claim it will be able to sustain earthquakes of a 9.0 magnitude and be resistant to fire for “up to three hours,” as well as be extremely energy efficient thanks to thermal insulation, four-panned windows and different air conditioning techniques that were already used in their previous constructions.
Let’s see…the World Trade Center was started in April of 2006, and it’s still to this date in 2012, not completely finished. And it’s not near as tall as China’s Sky City is going to be—its 1,776 feet tall as compared to 2,749 feet. The tallest building now, in Dubai, is 2,719 feet.
So, what is America going to do about this? Mayor Bloomberg has come up with something he thinks America can be proud of, and it’s only going to take a year…starting in 2014. The biggest Ferris Wheel in the world. Yes, he’s proud.
Nobody Notes: The Plan for this Ferris Wheel have been in place for quite some time.
A plan to build a Ferris wheel that would exceed the height of the Singapore Flyer, currently the tallest in the world, as well as the London Eye and the planned ‘High Roller’ wheel on the Las Vegas Strip, was announced by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
(This was planned BEFORE Sandy ).
The 625 foot New York Wheel, which would be the world’s tallest when completed, is part of a comprehensive plan that includes a new retail outlet complex and a 200-room hotel, all to be built on Staten Island’s North Shore, steps from the Staten Island Ferry in St. George.
The recently unveiled projects are expected to transform Staten Island’s waterfront by spurring economic growth, boosting tourism and creating more than1,200 construction jobs and 1,100 permanent jobs.
The projects are part of a city wide “sustainable blueprint” designed to transform the City’s waterfront with new parks, new industrial activities and new housing, “to promote water-borne transportation, recreation, maritime activity and natural habitats,” according to the Mayor’s office.
Okay. Uh. Is there anything LEFT on Staten Island?
Well, gee. In that case Hurricane Sandy just did a wonderful job clearing out valuable ocean front property to get ready for the Mayor’s new Theme park with the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world! Where nobody will be allowed to eat meat on Mondays, or drink a soda, but you will be able to freeze your butt off on top of the Ferris wheel, should you decide to go up in it.
Nobody Knows…If this Hurricane could have been helped out with the weather manipulators, but, that Hurricane is going to make a lot of rich union developers, richer. What are the odds? LOL! Getting all those property owners off the island will be pretty easy now.
Nobody Notes: I tend to lean towards the conspiracies if at all possible. Not only is it more fun, I always suspect when it comes to making the elites richer, they will pull out all things possible, and that includes…when you see a hurricane pushing your way…for goodness sakes, seed that sucker. The ends ALWAYS justify the means.
We have an election to win and a New Park to build!
China builds the tallest building in 90 days. The U.S. plans to build a Ferris Wheel, in 12 months…give or take a few years.
Yeah, we got this.
