They helped when other parts of the country needed assistance, its time to return the favor. Gosh, I just wish we had more funding available as a nation and individually.
    You have to start somewhere. I choose this event, or the next one, or the last one. I argue the same thing every time. Disaster aid is unconstitutional and unnecessary.

    Getting an education helps. Still that doesn't offer aid in " Act of God" events. A comprehensive federal response does.

    Any definite proof that FEMA is not relieable.??...Or is this just another opinion thing...parroting RL, H of Fox and the ilk.
    And why should FEMA be "rewarded" or not rewarded ??
    Its their job to distribute funds..

    Un-necessary ??
    Tell that to the ones who lost everything, including wives and children..
    Or do you believe that the Church should handle all of this charity work ??

    I choose to tell the ones who lost everything that illegaly taking money from citizens to pay them is no better than not leaving them to their own devices. As I said in the op, your property is your problem, not mine or anyone elses.

    Well apparently you're on the side of the aisle who attacked Mitt Romney for trying to gather up stuff to send to people.....I bet people who lost all their possession wouldn't mind some more clothes now, but hey, the Red Cross (which is a charity) and FEMA will take care of it is what we were told.

    I would encourage any support going to the victims, my school even took a trip to give aid by cleaning houses. When it comes to FEMA, I never said they wouldn't help I said they aren't reliable. FEMA easily runs short of funding and resources, and didn't even prioritize Sandy over the zombie prevention convention in San Diego. By rewards, I mean government funding.

    Not to mention the federal flood insurance program that many of these home owners bought into cant even afford to pay out. So I guess the govt insurance program needs insurance against itself.
