Once again the government takes the easy way out of damage assessment instead of doing their jobs...hell, it's not their money@@@@@@@@@@
"The Army Corps of Engineers estimates it will cost more than $2 billion to repair the damage to the nation's levees, dams and riverbanks caused by this year's excessive flooding, a sum that dwarfs $150 million it currently has to make such repairs and that doesn't account for damage from Hurricane Irene or Tropical Storm Lee."
On 11/9/11 FEMA will conduct the very first National EAS Test
Today, the White House facebook page received threats specific to "11/9/11"
Anyone else think they are setting the stage?
Recall the coincidental drills:
United States government operations and exercises on September 11, 2001:

On Jerry's show today. Nice explanation of Ron Paul's points on the TSA and FEMA. He calls out Rick Perry and how he should be thanking Ron Paul for having the right ideas..
What has Ron Paul been saying? DHS and FEMA should be shut down! I hope this comes up tonight during the debate.
DHS has misplaced their own bomb used in a live drill at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix.
For the past few days the Department of Homeland Security and other officials have been hunting for live explosives that have “gone missing” from a drill conducted late last week.
Here is some ammunition for Dr Paul tonight. FEMA strikes again turning away thousands of volunteers that want to fight the fires in Texas.
This is probably not new to some of you, but I was watching this video and learned about how FEMA is using football stadiums as concentration camps (see the Superdome example in Katrina)... very scary...
After doing some research online, I found these supporting articles and videos:
More political ammo for Ron Paul tomorrow night.
In an outrageous repeat of Katrina, the federal government has moved into wildfire-stricken Texas and turned away firefighting trained volunteers who had converged on Bastrop and Smithville to combat the out of control flames.
According to The Gonzales Cannon, federal officials arrived at the scene and assumed command of the operation under the pretense “local officials never made a formal request for volunteers.”
Governor Dan Malloy of Connecticut called presidential candidate Ron Paul an idiot last Thursday. He was answering a loaded question on CNN, responding to Congressman Paul’s concern about a bankrupted FEMA. This government agency, founded in 1978, now doles out money to victims of natural disasters. Of course, Malloy is salivating over that well earned money coming his way. His insult to Congressman Paul must reflect the high anxiety involved. It must be very stressful to have this whole notion questioned, right when you’ve won the lottery.

It appears that FEMA uses whether waffle houses are open or closed to measure storm severity. It's called the "Waffle House Index." Check out this article in Wall Street Journal
My friend James, the author of Waffle Street and who I just posted about here:
says this is not news to him.
This was such a hot topic last week -- Ron did many interviews about it. But, today on Fox News he says "I didn't say FEMA should go":
Good interview with Ron Paul on NPR's Weekend Edition. The interview started with his comments about FEMA. He was able to respond with real-life examples from his congressional district, slipped in a comment about needless wars, then, best of all, ended with the principle that undergirds his entire philosophy: that no one has the right to initiate the use of force against another. He clearly demonstrated his consistent and principled approach - one that sets him apart from all other candidates.
Ron Paul proven right yet again.
A Brief History Of: FEMA
By Tiffany Sharples Thursday, Aug. 28, 2008
From Hurricane Frederic in 1979 to tropical storm fay, which ravaged Florida in late August, Americans affected by disaster have looked to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for aid. But long before its error-plagued response to Hurricane Katrina (which marked its third anniversary Aug. 29), critics complained that FEMA, meant to epitomize state humanitarianism, was a synonym for government dysfunction.
