Obama’s Katrina 6 Months Later…After All The Promises, Thousands Remain Homeless

(WSJ) Flashback: Remember when Obama said at FEMA ahead of Hurricane Sandy:

“My message to the governors as well as the mayors, is anything they need we will be there and we’re going to cut through red tape, we’re not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. We want to make sure that we are anticipating and leaning forward into making sure that we’ve got the best possible response to what is going to be a big and messy system.”

Subsequent to Obama’s Hurricane Sandy photo-ops and the departure of the media from devastated areas tens of thousands still are homeless now some 6 months later, the region is dealing with a slow and frustrating recovery. Insurance companies and the federal government have not made anticipated payments despite all of Obama’s assurances when visiting the area one month ahead of last years elections with cameras rolling.

Americans Fear Government More Than Terrorism

Strong Arm Federal Government --Asian Conservatives

(WND) According to a pair of recent polls, for the first time since 9/11, Americans are more fearful their government will abuse constitutional liberties than fail to keep Americans safe.

Even in the wake of the Boston Marathon Jihad Bombings in which a pair of Islamic radicals are accused of planting explosive devices which claimed the lives of three and wounded 180 people–the polls suggest Americans are hesitant to give up any further freedoms in exchange for promises of security.

In a FOX News national survey of 619 registered voters the day after the Boston Jihad Bombings, despite the tragic event, those interviewed responded very differently than following 9/11

For the first time since a similar question was asked in May, 2001 more Americans answered “No” to the question: “Would you be willing to give up some of your personal freedom on order to reduce the threat of terrorism?”

Of those surveyed on the 16 April, 2013 45% answered “No” to the question compared to 43% answering “Yes” –following the 9/11 Islamic Jihad Terrorist attacks, the numbers flipped dramatically to 71% agreeing to sacrifice personal freedom to reduce the threat of terrorism.

The FOX News survey  was unique as it also broke the respondents down by political affiliation:

  • 51% of Democrats responded that they would be willing to sacrifice personal freedoms in exchange for temporary security compared to 43% of respondents calling themselves Republicans;
  • Independents were the most resistant with only 29% willing to sacrifice individual liberties.

Imagine a World Without Balloons, Congress Votes 394-1 to Save the ‘Federal Helium Reserve’

Balloons3D Birthday Balloons in 3D Max –Polygon Blog

(National Review) Speaking on the House floor on Thursday, Loony Liberal Lefty Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) stood up for some most important ‘victims’ of Congressional gridlock,  Children’s Birthday Parties and Comedians.

Discussing a bill to continue the federal government’s sales from the Natl Helium Reserve Johnson said, “…Imagine Mr Speaker, a world without balloons.”

Today, according to The Wall Street Journal the House of Representatives on a vote of 394-1 passed legislation to stop the closure of the Texas based Federal Helium Reserve which contains a 1/3 of the worlds helium supply.

The Federal Helium Reserve was created after World War 1 when we imagined a world where blimps would be the future of air travel and vital to our national security.

Its good that Congress before their recess next week took care of this impending crisis, what would happen to our nation without federal supplies of helium to fill all of those blimps that our nations commerce and commercial passenger aviation relies.
