Sad, But Hilarious

That's about as sad as a KFC running out of chicken. FEMA is a joke.

Looks exactly like Katrina to me

Looks like their Agenda 21 depopulation plan.

They're implementing their Agenda 21 - already airing commercials in FL. promoting their depopulation and bogus "environmental" grievances.

Don't worry!

FEMA will be around in the future when we actually don't want them to!

FEMA is a waste of taxpayers' dollars.

The argument can be made that if the right people run FEMA then it can work efficiently and that's true. Just like if the right people run a welfare program, it can work efficiently without waste. But, that begs the question, if American care enough about helping the poor that their willing to raise taxes on themselves and pay government bureaucrats to give their tax dollars to well-deserving poor people, wouldn't they be capable of organizing charities that do the same thing without the government's help and for a lot less money and lot less waste?

The same goes for aid to natural disaster victims.

Oh, c'mon

FEMA has no control over the weather. Their people deal with the same consequences as anyone else. For better or worse, as with first responders, it's the aftermath of disasters they try to help people with.

The point is that groups like

The point is that groups like FEMA have no constitutional place in the federal government; they should be handled at the state level.

Thank you.

If that's the point ~ and that's the argument as I see it ~ then that's what should be criticized. I still think that to make a joke about something so serious as the disastrous effect of this hurricane was wrong. At least to date, I've chosen not to sign up for FEMA assistance. But their assistance has been appreciated by some of my neighbors. I don't know where you all live, but where I do the winds and flooding were intense, the likes of which lifelong residents had never witnessed. I was forced to leave. Although I'm home now, I have no idea when power will be restored ~ heat, light, phone. And it's been down into the 30's at night. Things need to be rewired; furnaces need to be replaced. But first, mud and debris needs to be cleaned out of everyone's basements and the places sanitized because of mold. It's quite an ordeal, and thousands of homeowners and landlords have to wait for limited resources to become available (electricians, plumbers, and the needed appliances). There are all sorts of shortages, including (until today) gas. Unfortunately, we were hit with a nor'easter snowstorm on top of the hurricane. So forgive me if I fail to find humor in what I found to be ill-timed petty criticism.

The criticism was misplaced.

It doesn't belong with FEMA office workers hit by a hurricane along with millions of others along the East Coast, a hurricane with unprecedented tidal surges that has left thousands without heat, electricity, phones, and homes. It's a philosophical difference of opinion as to what is the most expedient and fairest means of dealing with disasters.

FEMA's job is to aid in

FEMA's job is to aid in situations like this... and they aren't doing it very well...

That's like saying "A bomb shelter isn't meant to protect you from a nuclear bomb, it's meant to give you shelter after one."

lol

A bomb shelter IS meant to protect you FROM something

You're not being logical. Who ever claimed that FEMA was supposed to protect Americans from having to experience disastrous weather?

ya... bad example :( My bad.

My bad.

Don't misunderstand me.

I doubt I disagree with you. I have lots of questions re FEMA. But there are a few different issues here. What gives FEMA its authority? How did it get so powerful? What is its actual mission? If it's disaster relief (technically to help states overwhelmed to deal with major disasters on their own), then why is it now under the DHS (in itself suspect) ~ and what the hell's up with FEMA camps? I read former director James Lee Witt's biography, and it very impressive, but as I recall, it focused on disaster relief and coordination of first responders along with charitable organizations. There were many inspiring examples of successful community efforts. Particularly given the fact that there can be regional disasters, I think there is value to having some sort of umbrella organization or network, although it's possibly something that could be organized within the National Governors Association. So, anyway, there are questions re its existence.

Secondly, given that we do have FEMA (and are paying for it, with an annual budget in the billions and with thousands of employees), there is the issue of whether it's at least doing a good job. From some other post I read this morning on the DP re Hurricane Sandy and a town in NJ, it would appear that it wasn't doing such a good job. Here in my area in NY I haven't heard of similar complaints. But our own volunteer fire department and the Salvation Army were there for residents providing shelter and food for days for those without homes or without power due to damaged transformers and downed power lines, i.e., short term assistance. I believe FEMA is primarily helping people a) who will not have power restored any time soon because of the damage to homes from flooding (finding them temporary housing) and/or b) who don't have the funds available for repairs and replacements that need to facilitated before power can be restored (helping them get loans).

So there's the issue of whether we should even have a government department functioning in the capacity they are; and also the issue of, given that we DO have FEMA, and we're paying for it, whether or not their employees are doing a good job. The first is a philosophical issue re the role of federal government; the second is an approval rating for how well they're doing their job given that we are currently paying them to serve in this area. There is much to debate. And as to how well they're doing, aside from the fact that communities were faced with different levels of devastation, I imagine that people would probably rate their experiences differently. It's hard to judge by just a few anecdotes that make the news (though you'd think that trained personnel at this time of year would come prepared to provide as basic a need as heat!, an issue for some in that one town).

I guess my own point was (sitting here in my home in three layers of clothing sipping hot tea trying to get warm), with all the VALID issues that exist regarding FEMA, I didn't understand a criticism over the fact that ad hoc office quarters temporarily housing bureaucrats (not those going door to door asking people if they had a need but office workers, probably processing loans) were affected by a nor'easter just like everyone else. I didn't find it symbolic of anything. I just found it petty.
