Pick: As far as states handling their own disaster relief, Florida does a real bang up job. A model for the rest of the country to look up to.

So yes, States can do a good job of handling it without FEMA.

Of course the people who think they don't get anything from the government and shouldn't have to pay taxes will scream the loudest when they want help.

...and those who can't imagine life without government assistance will continue to slurp and derp.

Slurp and derp down paved roads, with a police force protecting the motorway from speeders and reckless drivers, vehicle regs so my car doesn't explode in a fender bender, gasoline regs so my fuel has what it is advertised to have in it, insurance laws so I don't get ripped off on deductibles in case of a wreck or break down....

I think I've shat on your derp sufficiently now, internet libertarian.


Are you dense? Do you not understand the difference between people who are lifelong welfare/assistance recipients solely because it enables them live without care and government providing basic infrastructure (as it should)?

I know enough of these saps. Seriously. They sleep until at least 1:00 PM every day. They then watch daytime TV until around 5:00 when their kids (that their grandmothers and roommates got up and off to school) get home and then they hope that either someone else cooks some dinner or they piss some money away on fast food. They spend a few hours lounging around the house, then around 9 or 10 when their friends with fast-food jobs and the like are getting off work they start their day.

They then spend the rest of the evening deciding where/with whom they are going to use drugs and/or alcohol (which I have *absolutely* no problem with if you are supporting yourself), then proceed to get torn up until 4:00 AM, whence they either stumble into their bed, go to bed with a stranger they've been partying with (which I also have no problem with unless it nets illegitimate children I have to support through my taxes), or drive under the influence back to their home, so they can sleep until 1:00 again the next day.

I am not making this up. This is the exact life of *everyone* I have ever met who is on welfare. They are not bad people, they are smart, useful individuals, but they have no motivation to do anything else because they are able to "get by" doing nothing. I know a man that is illiterate, yet still manages to work doing hard labor to provide for his family and refuses assistance. They aren't well off, but they "get by". If he can do it, so can the lazy farks that only want to party, get farked up, and have no responsibility at all. I'd love to party all day and night...but I have to go to work.

But yeah, since I drove to work on a highway to contribute something to society, I am slurping and derping. Give me a god damned break.

Cataholic: So we have a headline from a crappy blog claiming he is doubling down...and one from huffpo using the exact same statement to say he is flip-flopping. Which is it?


Maybe you can explain it, because the candidate himself clearly cannot. While he's at it, maybe he could explain exactly how he would handle the situation. Does he want to shut down FEMA or not? Would he hand the money directly to the states, or to the private sector, as he said before? Could he, for once, not be insanely vague, evasive, and self-contradictory?

Most people can't understand that there's both welfare leeches in significant number and legitimate welfare cases where people are honestly trying (and sometimes succeeding) to move from welfare to productive economic unit in significant number.

Seriously watch people argue. They ignore one side or the other; to them either Welfare is state-supplied drug money or it's some kind of patron saint of the working man down on his luck. Both don't co-exist.

Well, second stupidest.

Your argument that X isn't X because it's not as severe as other X you're familiar with is pretty dumb. Like claiming someone with an apartment and cable TV isn't "poor" because living paycheck to paycheck barely able to afford food and gas isn't the same thing as sleeping in your own piss in the back alley and wishing you'd had something to eat in the past three days. The first one needs to drop their cable TV--and of course that will give them $50/mo more, not much but really if that's a good chunk of money then they're unequivocally poor.

Yes, when the government calls me and says, "You are now performing X task for the Government because we need mobilized bodies," I am being conscripted. That the task doesn't involve a gun isn't important. Hell, the United States SS (Selective Service) actually states that if you can't perform in combat, they can still draft you and use you in communications and logistics, which is really the same thing you're doing when drafted by FEMA.

So suck it.

So funny story - one of my coworkers who lives near a major river has had his house flooded three times. Badly, like whole first floor under water, insane repairs, has spent half the time he's owned it living in hotels, etc. To the point he and his family were just going to walk away from the loan and fark all.

FEMA came to the rescue, bought the house from him, and knocked it down. He now lives in a new, nice house at higher evelation. Nicest guy in the world and deserves it.

The point? He considers himself a libertarian.

After the storm Obama will point out how Romney would have left the states to fend for themselves. Which, could give him VA, NC, and possibly Ohio (if the storm cuts inland and makes it over the mountains).

The GOP will counter with accusing Obama of politicising a natural disaster.

Dear White House,

Could you please send us more money? Last year, we all spent that block grant 'o FEMA dollars on new Humvees. You know? so's we could get to the disasters faster. And we didn't have no disasters. So's this year, when we got our FEMA dollars, we went ahead and bought lift kits and chromium rims for the Humvee. So's we can get to disasters faster and fancier. We also threw our selves a big "Year o' No Disaster Party" and Cleetus took one of the humvees on a B - double E - R run and wound up at the E - Single R hospital. Can't say what happened to the Humvee 'cause he bit his tongue and he don't know all his letters. The Christian based school learning taught him God's a talker, not a writer. You don't need to know your words.

Anyhoo, as you probably seen on the TV, we had one of them storms blow through here. We is in a dastardly mess. The rich people say they cancelled their insurance just before the storm so the FEMA dollars will rebuild their summer homes fer nuttin. Well, I can't tell them their summer home is now a chrome spinner on a Humvee that may or may not be at the bottom of Bottomeless Pond. Rich people don't like that kind o' news.

And the poor people. Don't get me started on them. They's all up in the capitol moanin' about being hungry and thirsty and filthy and the nearest Walmart is now scattered clean to Kentucky. And their Magic Money Cards don't work cause the laptop that we use to disburse the welfare money got blowed away too. So we could use a new laptop with he software package Uncle Sam Shiats Today version 3.4 (Kathy don't like 4.0 - too confusing)

So, if'n you could fly down here with a nice laptop and one of those big checks and hand me the check so's we can get the rich people's home rebuilt (and get the poor some building jobs supervisin' the Mexicans who will do the real work), every thing will be hunky-dory again.

Thank you for your time and I look for you and your giant check soon

Money is his friend. It likes him and just hangs out w/ him. People, not so much.
Partisan hacks love him and just hang out w/ him. People, not so much.
Morally bankrupt leaders of industry love him and just hang out w/ him. People, not so much.
If we could just get rid of people, his ideas/plans/cons would be fine.

In hindsight, money should have been spent to strengthen the New Orleans levees before Katrina. President Clinton should have done it. Presidents Bush the First and Reagan should have done it. 
1927 was the last time the city of New Orleans did any improvements on the levee system.

New Orleans had in place evacuations processes that were set to help people fend for themselves. These processes failed to take into account the demographics of the city of New Orleans.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: As pre-insane Dennis Miller put it about abortion: "You want to states to decide? The states can't pave the farking ROADS."

Romney's derp is GOP Governing 101. Here in PA the GOP governor and GOP-controlled House and Senate slashed school funding, leading to 20,000 teachers being fired, test scores cratering and local property taxes going through the roof. But, it was all good, because the legislature got to run campaign ads bragging they didn't vote to raise taxes.

Instead of providing an actual government service like disaster relief Romney and his ilk want to just let the states handle it -- the same states run by governors and legislatures who would watch their own mother get dragged off by Slayer's road crew if calling 911 meant getting a stern look from Grover Norquist. If I may repeat myself from earlier today here, if it was up to them the rescue helicopters would drop credit card swipers down to people stranded on rooftops before agreeing to lower a rescue basket, and no, we don't take farking *Discover*.


You know what is really amusing in that block grant scenario? The blue states, who already have in place comprehensive state disaster plans and contingencies that respond fairly well to disasters would come out ahead. People in red states would just have to suffer though.

austin_millbarge: At this point I can't help but think Romney is deliberately trying to fark his own campaign.

If he's not, then his level of stupidity and incompetence is beyond what I initially imagined.


I think it`s that his level of stupidity and incompetence is beyond what anyone initially imagined. he`s not trying to derail his campaign, he just wanted to sell the rails.

A capitalist will sell you the rope you will use to hang them.

Hollie Maea: Imagine the logistical nightmare of the fifteen or so states about to be hit each with their own organization and beurocracy trying to deal with this and coordinate efforts. I thought conservatives were supposedly all about efficiency.

Also imagine West Virginia trying to pay for disaster response out of their own pocket.



Can we pay with couches?

bluefoxicy: drug money


I'm not saying that every case is like this. But every case I've ever seen is like this. To the other poster who had such an eloquent response to me: I'm not farking shiatting you! They seriously say they "want a job", but then never get up before noon because they were up all night screwing around. Then say they don't even look for a job because "everywhere piss tests". Then they'll say they're going to quit smoking pot or taking pills, and sometimes it lasts a few days or 4 or 5, but since they keep hanging out with other lowlives, they're right back doing the same shiat.

This is just one more reason I think companies shouldn't drug test for menial jobs like gas station clerk or Arby's fry cook. It gives people an excuse to not even look for jobs. I say hire whoever, you're going to know if they're a screw up within the first week, so if they can't do it just fire them. No need to base it on a urinalysis.

But back on topic, I know there are certainly cases where people just fell on hard times. I don't think welfare should be disbanded. But the disillusioned government worshippers have to admit there are certainly cases like this. I see it all day, every day, and it's not getting any better. If you have to pass a piss test to get paid to do work, you should have to pass one to get paid to not work.

Philip Francis Queeg: Hunter_S_Thompson: Philip Francis Queeg: Hunter_S_Thompson: I am not making this up. This is the exact life of *everyone* I have ever met who is on welfare. They are not bad people, they are smart, useful individuals, but they have no motivation to do anything else because they are able to "get by" doing nothing. I know a man that is illiterate, yet still manages to work doing hard labor to provide for his family and refuses assistance. They aren't well off, but they "get by". If he can do it, so can the lazy farks that only want to party, get farked up, and have no responsibility at all. I'd love to party all day and night...but I have to go to work.

Bull farking shiat.

That's the best you've got?

What if I told you that every rich person I knew was a sociopathic serial killer who was also a pedophile?


How rich are we talking? Billionaire level? I'd probably say you were right.

I am sure you being a Republican had nothing to do with your attitude toward them.

/Vote Republican

What can you expect from a moron who thinks there are mountains in Florida??

You've obviously never been in Florida. There are gradual inclines here that go all the way up to 40-50ft high. The mountains of Clermont are a wonder to behold.

The highest point in Florida is a garbage dump.


You're using the term "garbage dump" in the pejorative. Have you ever seen the sunrise in the misty gorge of two large piles of garbage? It's nature's beauty at its finest.

Frankly, I'm surprised he has the support he does. Would you expect anything better from a horse-show guy? Just look at the one Bush put in charge of FEMA during Katrina and you'll see how good a man who plays with show horses does managing natural disasters.

way south: monoski: way south: If nothing is done soon, it probably wont matter if FEMA exists as a giant sinkhole in the federal budget.

Besides if your area suffers catastrophic loss you should just borrow the money from your parents. This is how Mittens thinks

...And where are they supposed to borrow the money from?
This credit trains going to end somewhere
no matter how awesome Obama is.


Oh no! You mean that the system proposed by mitt would not work? Well I guess according to your logic you should vote for the other guy.

star_topology: So he's against the Dept of Homeland Security and the Patriot Act now?

This will go over well.


I'm ok with this.
