El paso de Sandy por las costas de Nueva York y Nueva Jersey ha dejado un rastro de desolación en ambas ciudades y aún se encuentra adentrándose de forma muy lenta dentro del continente. Millones de personas en estas localidades amanecieron este día sin electricidad ni transporte, así como la noticia de que al menos 33 personas ha muerto ha causa del meteoro.
¿Crees que el gobierno de Estados Unidos deba de tomar medidas más severas para estar prevenidos ante la llegada de estos fenómenos?
¿Se recuperará pronto la ciudad de Nueva York luego de que Sandy la golpeara?

A Vote For Obama-Biden Is A Vote For National Collapse

He announced that he'd instructed his officials to answer all calls within 15 minutes because in America "we leave nobody behind."
By doing all this, the president "shows" he "cares" — which is true in the sense that in Benghazi he was willing to leave the entire consulate staff behind, and nobody had their calls answered within seven hours, because presumably he didn't care. So Brennan, the counterterrorism guy, and Blinken, the national security honcho, briefed the president on the stiff breeze, but on Sept. 11, 2012, when a little counterterrorism was called for, nobody bothered calling the Counterterrorism Security Group, the senior U.S. counterterrorism bureaucracy.
Meanwhile, FEMA rumbles on, the "emergency management agency" that manages emergencies, very expensively, rather than preventing them. Late on the night Sandy made landfall, I heard on the local news that my state's governor had asked the president to declare a federal emergency in every New Hampshire county so that federal funds could be "unlocked." A quarter-million people in the Granite State were out of power. It was reported that, beyond our borders, 8 million people in a dozen states were out of power.
But that's not an "emergency." No hurricane hit my county. Indeed, no hurricane hit New Hampshire. No hurricane hit "17 states," the number of states supposedly "affected" by Sandy at its peak. A hurricane hit a few coastal counties of New Jersey, New York and a couple of other states, and that's it. Everyone else had slightly windier-than-usual wind — and yet they were out of power for days.
