No one is being forced to go to these camps. These camps are for people who have not prepared ahead of time for disasterous times like these and have nowhere to go. These camps are for people who have chosen to be poor by having children they can't afford and working crappy, low-paying jobs. Oh, and probably some nice people too. Being poor and having nowhere else to go is a choice they made for themselves... ANYONE can work hard and do well. There are A LOT of people who lost everything in this disaster but that have saved their money and can now take care of themselves and not wait for a government handout.
Regarding FEMA not accepting material donations: I don't know if any of you have experience in logistics, but do you realize the sheer volume of work to provide food, clothing and shelter for 5000 people? For FIVE months?! Who do you expect to sort through and distribute all this stuff? All of the other cabins did not have the volunteers yours had to do all that. And being these people are depending on the goverment to provide for them, which is socialism, then the socialist idea of everyone getting the same stuff must apply.

If they had just left town when they were told there was a hurricane coming, followed their mayor's and governor's evacuation order, and evacuated themselves like HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of other people did, they would not have to be put on a bus and shipped to the middle of nowhere at taxpayer's expense.
You have voted KS Coyotee for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have two more votes this month.
