Well, let's say the storm is as bad as the hype. What do you do with millions of displaced people in what will be winter conditions.
FEMA "camps" maybe your only option if there is nothing to return too.
Granted that should be a last resort, and there needs to be a "reintegration plan".
I have always been on the fence with "FEMA camps" for two reasons.
1. Yeah they could be used for "notorious purposes" gathering up patriots, Christians, Muslims, Illegals, etc.etc. insert your personal worst fear.
2. BUT what do you do if you hae a natural disaster (or war or terrorist attack) that causes displacement of millions of Americans? They have to be
sheltered, feed, etc.. I think they exist for this reason as much, if not more than any "political" or "conspiracy" reason.
Of course, if that was the case they should just come out with it I suppose. They should also be a temporary solution, say..no more than 30 days, with
specific plans so people can relocate back to their home location, or a new location if destruction is that complete.
When i was in the Civil Air Patrol (mind you 15 years ago) we worked alot with FEMA....I didn't think of them particularily nefarious, at least at the
lower and middle levels that I interracted with. I didn't find them overly competent either, but emergency managment has come along way sense
