    FEMA made some mistakes here.

    But shouldn't you be saying these people ought to be looking after themselves not turning to 'big government' for our tax money just because their house blew away?

      No, that would only come in if they had got any money.

      TMMasonposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I should... but the fact is it is our tasx money and these people need it, so if we can give it Katrina victims and people around the world, then we can gove it to them. We are spending trillions on BSS, lets do some good with it.

      Besides it the hypocrisy of Bush and katrina which Obama screamed about, that I more pointing to. I could say this is another exaple of obama racist roots shining through.

      "Barrack Obama hates white people", got a nice ring to it eh.

        Didn't agree when Beckles said it, don't agree now.

        Unless you are saying he hates his mother and grandparents.....are you?

          Who is Beckless? (Glenn Beck?) he's an idiot. Just wondering. I know you weren't addressing me....

          I don't think Obama ever had any respect for his mom, she didn't even make an effort to raise him. And as for the grandparents who sacrificed to send him to prep school - a very good one at that - I think he felt they owed it to him. He is so arrogant I honestly don't think he has deep feelings for many people at all.

            Uninvited Writerposted 6 years agoin reply to this

            Do you know Obama personally? How do you know if he has deep feelings or not and for whom and how he felt about his mother? I don't see arrogance, I see confidence in what he believes.

            People have an awful habit of putting the worst characteristics onto someone they don't like. That goes for all sides...

            psycheskinnerposted 6 years agoin reply to this

            Um, hardly.  Even a cursory look shows that he has a lot of love and respect for the entire maternal side of the family.  Suggesting Obama is racist is pure projection.

    FEMA has screwed everybody so far!

    New Orleans, Joplin, Nashville, Huntsville, Mississippi Gulf Coast, and the list goes on!

    More like inefficent goverment structure, not a failure of the Executive, but...

    He should act to clean it up, if he even does not know how to.
    as they say; 'Ask somebody!"

      agree Psyc, how many were playing the system for more than thier share also.  But, they could do this much much more efficent than they have.

      some crazy tape and rules when it is not needed.

    Did not Ryan state that Obama should cut spending somewhere else before helping the people recover?

      I do not believe so. i have never heard that from him and I am not a fan of Ryan, nor any other Progressive.

        Ryan is a progressive like Bibiguns likes America....as in not at all.

          I am pretty sure that if Paul Ryan had said something like that it would have been in every headline for weeks and I never heard it. I doubt it happened...

    As a Katrina survivor I can attest to the fact that FEMA is a mess, but so was the entire city and state government in that situation. You can't blame Bush or FEMA for people being to stupid to leave in the face of a monster. And don't get me started on the "they didn't have any way to leave" crap, that's just not true. And now we've spent billions to rebuild a cesspool just as sleazy and dirty as ever.

    As for current events, we here in Texas have been cut off for wildfire funding because we are a Red state, we got very little help from the fed. after the monster storm Ike because we are a Red state. Our Governor has asked for help along the border and been denied because we are a Red state.

    How many of the states now suffering are also Red states?

      What do you want? You told the Fed to go F itself....now you come crying?
      Texas already HAD a stimulus check....spent it all, most likely on give-aways to business.

      Waaaa waaaa waaaaaaaaa.
      Hate the gvt, tell it to go to hell, but now cry when it doesn't kiss your behind.

      YOU ALL want to secede....remember? Show us how it's done.

      1. KK Trainor profile image60
        KK Trainorposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        What are you even talking about? What stimulus? Unless you're talking about the same stimulus that in many cases our Governor rejected because he didn't want the strings attached. And we don't need any more help, we're just fine. But the President is, in theory, supposed to care about all of the states in the union and treat them equally. And we are still in the union.

        Talk of secession is just a joke that the rest of you fall for every time -

        No we don't want to secede... we want to remove the left from this nations govt. But we will never give up our country to the treasonous leftists. And if youre going to blow our money and destroy us, then at least help some real Americans while you do it.

          "we want to remove the left from this nations govt"

          This is what I've been saying all along. You don't want a gvt of the people...you want a gvt for YOUR people.

          Republicorp. ONLY. ALL branches. ALL positions. A complete Take-Over.

          And the peak of your clawing is the Tea-Bag Movement....The Kochsters.

    Seems from what I have heard that the insurance companies are doing as much or more of the screwing.

    1. KK Trainor profile image60
      KK Trainorposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Absolutely right about that! Why hate big oil and not hate the diseased monsters calling them "insurers" who never want to pay claims?

      Don't even get me started...talk about leeches making billions on the backs of everyday folks, who happen to pay premiums for the protection of their property!
