No laughing At Doomsday Preppers Now As FEMA And Red Cross Fail Again After Sandy

In times of trouble, your charitable donations and taxes, that in the good times go to fund organizations such as the Red Cross and Fema, seem to disappear as these agencies end up doing very little for the residents of disaster areas.  During hurricane Sandy, where both the government and Red Cross had more than 8 days to prepare for the exact locations where the storm would strike, few efforts by both agencies could be found.

And on November 1st, the disgust was so great for the Red Cross, a Staten Island official publicly announced that no American should give donations to the decades old relief agency.



“Because the devastation in Staten Island, the lack of a response,” Mr. Molinaro 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.” - Politicker

Additionally, where was FEMA with their warehouses full of MRE's and other basic necessities for just this purpose?  On the outside looking in, and from their track record during and after Katrina, it is no wonder why.

As National Review’s Kevin William’s points out, FEMA has wasted “shocking amounts of money,” including the expenditure of $416,000 per capita to temporarily house people displaced by Hurricane Katrina, issuing $2000 debit cards to hurricane victims without bothering to check their identification, and allowing nearly 11,000 unused manufactured homes to deteriorate on old runways and open fields in Arkansas. - Front Page Magazine

It is ironic that Americans laugh or make fun of preppers, and the government uses their prudence to exploit class warfare between the haves and have nots.  But the sad truth is, in times of trouble, you are responsible for yourselves and your family, and if you wait for the agencies that gladly take your money during times of peace, it is a fool's errand to believe that money will be of any use when disaster strikes.
