Hey—has anyone heard about how the poor victims from Hurricane Sandy are doing? It was only last October when we saw how Sandy, propitiously saved Obama’s Presidency, because the great Republican leader, Chris Christie, gave Obama a big hug for saving the nation.Obama and Sandy

After that Obama won a second term, and then the horror stories came out. Everyone was being ripped off, robbed, and ignored…for months. Well, that story just disappeared. I can’t find any news about the Sandy victims anywhere.

But, I did run across one of Harry Reid’s lessons in How to Get Billions: Load a disaster bill up with pork, then tell everyone to go home in hopes that nobody notices.

Remember the $51 Billion dollars that Chris Christie wanted? Remember that John Bonehead said no?

Here’s what was in the Senate bill:

$4 million for the Kennedy Space Center

(Getting rid of old astronauts cost a lot of money.)

$8 million to buy cars and equipment for the Homeland Security and Justice Departments

(Obama wants a new limo, and more hallow point bullets for the EPA.)

$20 million for a nationwide “Water Resources Priorities Study.”

(Actually, this is for the White House Staffers who cannot afford the bottled water in the cafeteria.)

$41 million for eight military bases including Guantanamo Bay

(Obama sent the money to the Saudi’s because they needed runways for those fighter jets he sent them, and the Bay needs an indoor swimming pool.)

$55.8 million for charting the debris from last year’s Japanese Tsunami

(Al Gore says he lost the charts, and needs more.)

$58 million for forest restoration on private land

(Private land? Is Ted Turner running out of money?)

$100 million for the federal Head Start Day care program

(To be renamed, “Getting a Head Start on learning to speak Spanish”)Chinese Salamander

$150 million for funding for Alaskan fisheries

(The victims of New Jersey will be given new jobs as fishermen in Alaska because Japan’s waters are not exactly fish ready yet.)

$188 million for new Amtrak lines (not repair, whole new lines)

(Warren Buffet payback)

$197 million “to protect coastal ecosystems and habitat impacted by Hurricane Sandy.”

(Payback to Michael Bloomberg who can now build the New Jersey Disneybloom World that he has planned for years…thanks to Sandy for clearing that space for him.)

$5.3 billion to the Army Corps of Engineers —that’s more than their annual budget.

(Obama still dreams of building the future of his dreams…we just don’t know where he plans to build it)

$10.78 billion for public transportation, most of which is allocated to future construction and improvements, not disaster relief.

(Pelosi still wants her personal train to Vegas.)

$13 billion would to ‘mitigation projects to prepare for future storms.

(We will need more disasters. How else will Congress be able to get their hands such porkulous wonder?)

$17 billion for wasteful Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) a program that has become notorious for its use as a backdoor earmark program.

(I have NO clue…probably Freddie and Fannie in Cairo.)

And last but not least: $38 billion dollars to study the mating habits of the giant salamander found in Janet Napolitano’s back yard.

Just kidding.  I made that up. Janet Napolitano does not have salamanders in her back yard.

But I bet she knows where to find $38 billion dollars..

    $197 million “to protect coastal ecosystems and habitat impacted by Hurricane Sandy.”

    (Payback to Michael Bloomberg who can now build the New Jersey Disneybloom World that he has planned for years…thanks to Sandy for clearing that space for him.)

    Let me guess, the park will be as follows:

    1 – no rides as they could induce a heart attack
    2 – no super sized drinks
    3 – no salt
    4- upon entry every visitor will be given a list of all the menus complete with a calorie count guide book
    5- upon entry every visitor will have to register with state so they can be taxed as a part time resident.
    6 – no walking and texting, you may trip and fall.
    7 – no air conditioning anywhere in the park as that could contribute to global warming.
    8- no tobacco products, but pot smoking will be encouraged.

    Will visitors be searched for assault weapons and magazine clips holding more than seven bullets?

    "(Pelosi still wants her personal train to Vegas.)"

    A train or another plane? Since losing the Speakership to Boner, she no longer has that magnificent ride to and from San Francisco. You know! The one with the wet bar stocked at taxpayer expense. The same one on which members of her family also rode. Perhaps she is carving out a new benefit for the minority leader in the House of Representatives.

    [...] The Powers That Be, guest poster Joyanna Adams wonders what happened with Superstorm Sandy [...]

  11. Marshall_Will on March 31st, 2013 7:36 pm

    ChapBix,

    "Carve outs" was precisely what came to mind when reading Joyanna's;

    (Obama still dreams of building the future of his dreams…we just don’t know where he plans to build it)

    After this administration "passed their driver's exam by closing their eyes the whole time ( hoping for the best? )" and changed their drawers to keep from being easily identified, The Sawagga' is BACK!

    Going from contemplating serious JAIL TIME at the prospect of an election LOST in no later than 2010 to a 2nd term and Get outta' Jail FREE card, it took quite an effort to restore their 'composure', but now they're back w/ a VENGEANCE! Look for an appt. for Armendariz any day now….

    As a former victim of Sandy, I want to say that Mr Obama really did something for us.. I know people keep saying that he says a lot and does nothing, but i really disapprove! He helped us rebuild and start new lives! With his help, the Great Southeast Flooring America company redid most of the inside of the house and some other great and generous people helped with the outside. Thank you, sir.
