"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Damn.... I'd buy that as a vacation home.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
In the case of floods, then most people don't have flood insurance. We had flooding last year and the Red Cross did help people, as well as FEMA. But in this case, these people were financially prepared in case of a fire, and I'm sure they also have credit cards to take care of immediate expenses. Even Goodwill takes credit cards these days.
The lady at the Red Cross said that they got $500 for immediate expenses. Ridiculous!
This home wasn't a $400,000 home. Home prices include the home and the land. In this case, the dwelling itself was worth a little under $400,000. The land is probably worth $300,000-400,000. The home was what we call McMansions in these parts. They are rural urbanites with snowmobiles and boats.
So a few things... regionally, the price doesn't denote McMansion. I used to rent in Bernardsville NJ and 400,000 home on a small postage stamp lot worth another 300,000 would be a lower middle class home.
I'm just really surprised how people wouldn't mind discrimination by a group based on the estimated cost of their homes - or based on their income. A standard home for 200,000 in Roanoke VA is 1.7 million in the NY suburbs - especially in parts of NJ, my home state. I'm not for discrimination at any level for anyone. If there's a disaster, people need help no matter what.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
