Well, that's typical. White people can't get any help, but black people can get all the strip club boogie woogie money they want.

Welcome to Bushbama's America!

foxyshadis: super_grass: Remember when Fark collectively shat its pants when Ron Paul suggested that people buy insurance after the Tennessee flooding?

What happened to that "we don't need no corpurashuns" attitude now?

No, because that only happened in your imagination.


We don't need no corporations
We don't need no flood control
No tax dollars on the seashore
FEMA, Leave those homes alone!
Hey, FEMA! Leave those homes alone!

A bunch of affluent people, who likely vote GOP, complaining that the government won't give them handouts.

This is surprising not in the slightest.

No, but the bumps around the areola is braille for "suck here".

My third home was a beautiful 2 story 3000 sq foot beachfront home. Maybe if you farkers weren't so poor you'd understand how expensive it is to afford that

After the Yellowstone Caldera goes, the Weenerss once internet service is restored in Europe and Asia will be along the lines of "well, it was their fault for settling North America".

Oh FEMA; why can't you magically drain water instantly? Why can't you just cut me a check for my third house?

FEMA won't award grants for damage to second homes.

Good. Fark 'em, that's what insurance is for.

It won't duplicate benefits paid by private insurance, so homeowners must settle claims before FEMA will evaluate, said FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate.

Also good.

And most of its recovery aid comes in the form of low-interest disaster loans, he said.

I'm ok with that too. Being a victim isn't winning the lottery; you still have to be a grownup.

Anyway we won't get anything from the government. I don't think we deserve a hand out, but we don't deserve to have to work harder than others. We work hard, and pay our dues, and rarely complain that we get nothing in return. This is one of the times where we could use a hand, not cash, just support, but sadly none.


I hate to say this but....

Government is there to provide bear-minimum safety nets, no replace private industry entirely. At least you got some quality false equivocating going on there though, bless your heart.

right, because every so many years it blows and wipes out those who built arround it and yet they keep rebuilding. And once that asteroid hit the earth, the martians will be saying "well, it was their fault for settling earth"

Brett.M: You're taking the complaints the wrong way.

My wife, son and I we displaced by the storm. Yes we have 2 homes.... we don't deserve to have to work harder than others. .


Not "displaced" if you have a second home, and if you do, you had better have worked harder than others.

I have two sailboats, and no car. Evidently, I prefer sailboats.

If one of either of my sailboats sank, I am insured to (eventually) replace it and I would not be "displaced from sailing".
