Since the Whaambulance refused to come to deal with my acute dyspepsia induced by that Libtard Whiner on Statin Island, I’ll have to provide my own relief. Relief comes from unloading of a Libtard. ;-)
So - - I suggest that had Mr. Big Sh*tty Libtard purchased insurance, he would not be whining for help from the government. Actually, the correct term for what the Whiner wanted is “charity”.
As the famous incident between Rep. Davy Crockett and Horatio Bunce makes clear, Gubbament can’t do charity because it is a power not given to the Federal Gubment.
As the Statan Islander has not bought any insurance, certainly he has thereby saved so much money he can take care of himself.
Oh, no money and no insuranced, eh. Go fight with the troll for space under the bridge. New Yawk is a bastion of socialism, and thus my Give-A-Damn Ver.101 won’t load for them.
Correct me if I am wrong, but renters cannot get flood insurance, nor will renters insurance cover flooded personal possessions. Many apartments were flooded & uninhabitable. Upper level apartments are uninhabitable because electrical/plumbing systems need major work.
People have no place to live, no job, no possessions, no car, nothing. We, as a nation, have a responsibility to help these people restart their lives, including temporary shelter & assistance, as surely as we should help the sick & disabled.
I DO NOT support helping these people rebuild houses destroyed, only to have them destroyed in the next storm. The gov’t should buy these properties & leave them as open public areas. With such a policy, eventually there would be little need for flood insurance, & vast waterfront areas would be available for public recreation. If you think this is expensive, consider that many owners on the Gulf Coast have collected more in flood insurance claims than the properties are worth, not including the costs to restore roads, sewer, water, & power to these homes.
Yeah, FEMA sux, but so does every other Federal bureaucracy. I favor being rid of them all, but as we are paying for them, I expect SOMETHING for my money. I imagine the whiner has similar feelings.
