cripplecreek knows FEMA makes ya soft!
Federal Emergency Mammary Analog.Carry_Okie thinks without FEMA, the free market would solve all, just like in Victorian times!
Would Romney gut FEMA?MacMattico's Dad didn't need Fema to save his small town from an ice storm!
I wish he would. Since when was the Federal government supposed to act as an emergency service provider, especially for disasters within a State? Without FEMA the insurance industry would be forced to invest in a new disaster mitigation industry that would actually be accountable to customers and wouldn't possess emergency powers that are a serious threat to my liberty.
When my dad was Mayor of a small city in upstate NY, and we had a HUGE ice storm, and our area was declared a national disaster area, he had things up and running long before any federal or state relief arrived. This issue has to do with fiscal responsibility, too— he had made sure money was available for such emergencies by balancing budgets and actually having a rainy day fund. FEMA eventually reimbursed, but really did no heavy lifting. FEMA had no knowledge of local characteristics, people, water supply or structures. My dad and other locals had plans in place covering every contingency based on local needs.DesertRhino knows Hitler started with FEMA:
And FEMA is the federal skeleton of any martial law implementation. FEMA should be one target, then the creepy Nazi named Homeland Security Dept. They now have about the same manpower as the USMC, and twice the budget. And they are aimed right at us.NoLibZone thinks FEMA's imaginary police-state powers may be a feature
Man I hope he guts FEMA.
Or teach the democrats how powerful FEMA is.
