Mim, Problem is where did fema money go? Look at their website, what they collected in premiums and what they paid out does not even make CENTS! Search for stopfemanow! Real problems for America are coming!

We conservatives will not tolerate this. In fact, there is very little we will tolerate.

Fema will lock all you good, God fearing conservatives in their Obambi concentration camps. Not in my America. You can apologize to us Tea Party members when we liberate yo.

Would you feed, clothe, and shelter the neighbors before your own wife?

The Fema website is selling 130$ policies only to people who are out of the flood plain and have no or minimul risk, me &others who ,on the other hand, cannot buy insurance there, because we are actually in the flood zone. My house was built in 188o. Fema is doing exactly what I said hoping (with their water damage commercial) to get people with minimal and no risk to chip in for this bailout.

Problem is Fema is 27 billion in debt who will pay for it? Natural disasters are a roll of the dice. Joplin,Estes Park, mud slides sink holes Jersey Shore, Galveston, who knows??Having flood plain people 50% of the US go bankrupt is not the answer!! (Biggert Waters) There are 130 million Homes in US. $100 a year for natural disaster insurance would alleviate this. You never know where the next natural disaster will strike,sink holes, tornadoes, risk is the roll of the dice.We all face it if high risk properties want to qualify for more aid let private insurance handle it where competition is the only answer.

Wasn't that helpful? All you have to do is cut down all the trees along the water, which of course belong to other people, and maintain grass on those properties, and just maybe you will escape the bureaucratic mugging. It would be simpler to build a ten foot levy around your house.

The flood waters don't always go where expected. Take Montoursville in the last flood. Jordan Ave was evacuated but the water had other plans and went in a different direction.

The beltway in Garden View in a previous flood created flooding where the waters were never as severe.

You can't accurately predict what Mother Nature will do.
