Yes I believe there are FEMA camps and yes just like what happened in Katrina and what is happening in Iowa should anything go wrong in MY community I
have no doubt the feds would deny me entry to my home and attempt to relocate me to a FEMA camp.
I guess you were the wrong American to ask about fema, if thats how you think it went down. Fema is a lot of things but this is the furthest from the
truth that I have heard.
I live spitting distance from NOLA. I can see the city from my back yard.
I'll give you an example of what fema did. One of my best friends was left with a slab after the storm. He was able to get rental assistance for
several years. (still gets it) to the tune of about $1200 a month. It took a while but late last year he was given $100,000.00 from the feds for his
trouble and he gets to keep the lot which he only paid 50k for in the first place (small). He is now selling the place for 50k as property value has
shot way up in this area.
Most people in FEMA camps as you put it also got the 100k. Trust me I know quite a few. The gov was no where around these places, just security guards
to stem the drug sales and shootings. FEMA may be a lot of things, slow, corrupt, and so on but they did more for these people then they would have
ever done for themselves. They're all riding around here on 20's with fresh golds in their mouth.
1 fema camp that i know well "was" the one near the home I'm building on the gulf coast in MIss. Lets see, the beach is right across the street.
There's no fences. You can hear the Hank Williams jr. and smell the barbecue for miles. Judging from the amount of rebel flags and empty beer cases
around the place, I think it would be safe to say, they were right at home in the place. While they waited for their 100k.
There's plenty to bash the gov about, we don't need to make things up, or believe what you see on CNN.
Sorry for the log post but I feel a realistic picture needed to be painted..
