Rapmaster2000: keypusher: Headso: The Wall Street Journal says ok, bullshiat coming out...No, actually. WSJ news coverage is as good as it gets. Pick up the paper and read it. You will be amazed.LOL. No, really. I laughed pretty hard. This isn't 1987 anymore. The WSJ is USAToday for muppets.
Headso: tenpoundsofcheese: 5monkeys: I am in ocean county and displaced. Fema gave us temporary housing assistance right away,Fema was able to give you that housing assistance due to the 53% of the people who pay federal income taxes.Make sure you thank those evil tax payers when you get a chance.the biggest thanks you could give me would be to kick tenpoundsofcheese in the nuts...

sodomizer: When conservatives say we're against big government, part of what we're talking about is the inherently abusive tendencies of bureaucracy.Bureaucrats don't have to show a profit, or be in any other way regulated by reality. They do what it says they're supposed to do, however they interpret it, with oversight only by other bureaucrats. Government picks people who generally cannot have other careers to do these jobs.I'm not yay-gung-ho about privatization, but private insurance hiring private companies might have done a better job of cost accounting. The Red Cross seems to be doing OK, not great, but better than FEMA as a practical solution.The last really big storm I went through knocked power out for weeks for eight million people. We never saw any FEMA activity.
sasbazooka: I have some good friends down in Ocean County that were flooded out, and FEMA has taken care of them pretty well. They aren't ALL bad.
Flragnararch: I think the better question is why is this article from the San Fransisco Chronicle?
