Ad Hominem Attacks And You
Why on earth did your post receive a boatload of stars? Not to argue a mute point with you but FEMA is there as CONTINUITY of goods and services as priority #1.
Even because you work for them, you can still show some empathy FIRST, and then go through the red tape blabla bla explanation of the burden those pesky survivors tax them out with...
Many policies while they cover a tornado, will not cover wind, so with the final word on Joplin having been 200mph 'winds' insurance companies could then go have a nice dinner out and buy their daughter a Lexus.
You HAVE to read this thread and tell your friend to seek proper medical help asap!
Not so, you can experience straight line winds here which can reach gale force. If these occur during the same time as a tornado rips through your county and the inspectors come to investigate, only if it was within the tornadoes path will some policy holders be eligible. There really should be an extensive thread done on insurance and the cost of disaster.
The article was a good read however and it is not as us against them here on ATS as some of the cheerleaders for FEMA would have you believe. *Spade a Spade*
