It's the one hospital thing. Do we really want that one hospital in the middle of the biggest city in each state?

There are many threads about them complete with pictures of the plastic coffins.
And that still doesn't prove that FEMA coffins are real.
Jessie Ventura did a show filming the Camps and the plastic coffins.
I have no firsthand knowledge either way.
The facts: The email and Facebook post is usually accompanied by a photo showing the “coffins.” This is an old rumor that first came out long before Barack Obama was elected president.
What’s shown in the photos are not “plastic coffins,” but rather burial vaults, which are usually made of concrete or polypropylene, and sometimes known as grave liners. These containers aren’t “disposable coffins” for bodies; they’re placed in the ground to protect the coffin from water seepage and to maintain level ground above, according to Snopes.com.
Conspiracy theories about the containers started appearing in 2007 in blogs on AboveTopSecret.com, according to a 2008 article in The Morgan County (Ga.) Citizen. The story stated, as reported by Snopes.com, that tens of thousands of the vaults were stored on leased land in Madison, Ga., back in the 1990s by the manufacturer, the nearby Vantage Products Corp.
The paper quoted Michael Lacey, Vantage vice president of operations, as saying that when the vaults were placed on the site around 1997 or 1998, there may have been as many as 70,000 or 80,000 — but never the 500,000 that the viral email claims.
Since the containers are made to withstand the elements, they could be stored outdoors. “It was the most cost-effective place,” Lacey told the newspaper.
He said that the burial vaults aren’t owned by the government, or FEMA, or any one individual; they have either been sold to funeral homes for pre-need arrangements, or are being stored until sold.
