Is This America’s Most Idiotic Woman?

Business Insider put out a story titled “America’s ‘Unluckiest Woman’ Just Lost Her Fifth Home to a Hurricane“. This is exactly what Ron Paul was talking about, when he got criticized for saying people shouldn’t be entitled to tax payer money, to rebuild homes destroyed in areas that are prone to bad storms/flooding.

This woman lost four homes, and decided to build her fifth home...

If I ever go to live in a disaster prone area like this, I want my house to be made of reinforced concrete with deep pilings and the main floor 10+ft off the ground.(can have a lower sealed floor that has no windows and is only accessable from the top)

So I guess she hasnt had enough of repeatedly losing all of her belongings? Or does she even care?

If I were the insurance company...

I wish other people would wake up to the fact...

that their tax dollars are going to the insane reconstruction of homes that are so prone to disasters.

They demagogue FEMA just like anything else to say it's for the public good while funneling the money to irresponsible people such as this woman.

I think this is the point...

FEMA are the insurance where private insurance is either too high to not available at all

Where are the environmentalists?

Environmentalists should be screaming about fed flood insurance and fed re-building assistance; it encourages building in environmentally sensitive areas. Instead, they say nothing. I have asked many over the years. They avoid the issue. Makes me think the environmental agenda is more about government intrusion and less about the environment.

Shouldn't people in Louisiana

Shouldn't people in Louisiana just start building on stilts? I mean the city is sinking and all because it was built on the Miss. Delta... but seriously....

It's the stupid ones that don't.
