FEMA is disaster
Original post made by James on Oct 30, 2012
We don't need FEMA, because it is an excuser/enabler of last resort. Watch, as the beach dwellers are provided grants to rebuild, where they should never have built, in the first place.

James, thank you for your opinion. You know that you live in a flood zone, right?

That's right James - Hurricane Sandy was clearly the fault of those who lived in the areas where it struck. You sound just like Romney:
"JOHN KING: What else, Governor Romney? You've been a chief executive of a state. I was just in Joplin, Mo. I've been in Mississippi and Louisiana and Tennessee and other communities dealing with [disaster], whether it's the tornadoes, the flooding, and worse. FEMA is about to run out of money, and there are some people who say, 'Do it on a case-by-case basis,' and some people who say, you know, 'Maybe we're learning a lesson here that the states should take on more of this role.' How do you deal with something like that?
"ROMNEY: Absolutely. Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better."

Hahaha! I would like to see the local governments or the private sector deal with the humongous fallout from Hurricane Sandy. Good luck! Some disasters are too humongous for smaller entities to handle
