Give the money directly to the states. There's no reason why the federal government needs to skim off the top. Anything necessary from the federal government can be handled by the Corps of Engineers or Department of Transportation.
FEMA is just one of many, many government institutions that can be eliminated by combining their elements with existing departments with duplicate functions.
If FEMA is so good why are they bringing in the Army and Navy. This is not a knock on the Army or Navy.

It was discovered during Clinton's tenure that 2 of every 3 homeless people were Vietnam-era veterans. After this discovery was made, the vital statistic of veteran status ceased to be collected.
The Vietnam-era veteran comprised about 3 percent of the population, and accounted for two thirds of the homeless.
Where was your outrage then?
... typical goddam Democrat hypocrite.
I became a teenager during Clinton's tenure, Dubya. And my 'outrage' has been expressed by taking in the child of a homeless veteran, and raising him as my own, when Ron was killed on the streets.

I've been registered R since the age of 18.

every time that government hires a new employee, they are creating a multimillion dollar unfunded future pension liability......
Absolutely. Most end up collecting more money after they retire than the whole time they worked. The big pension bubble pop across the land is not far away. That will be the next big bailout. Or the student loan bubble. Maybe the state bailout but that will include the pensions. California or Illinois will be first in line.

<quoted text> Funny but just about everyone I know that was homeless, say over 95%, had at least one of those problems. Most had more than one.
Obviously your perception of "homeless" is that of people sleeping in parks begging for quarters to be spent on booze, drugs and so on and to be fair that probably is the "final" version of homelessness.

But homeless people might be living with friends or family until they can get back on their feet, women and children living in shelters to escape abusive husbands/fathers. Homeless has become an umbrella word to describe various human situations.

As we speak, there are perhaps a couple of hundred thousand "new" homeless folks in the areas affected by the superstorm and I for one wouldn't mind it if some of those folks head to Central Florida with their insurance/FEMA checks to take advantage of really cheap homes and rents left behind by our financial tragedy.

CBS is out with a new poll of the critical swing states Ohio, Florida, and Virginia. In each, Romney posts significant leads among Independent voters. In Virginia, Romney leads Obama by a massive 21 points among Independents. In OH and FL, he leads by 5-6 points. If this lead holds through election day, he will not lose these states, based on past elections.

Romney also has big leads among those most likely to vote. He wins seniors, the most dependable voting demographic, by 13 points in VA, 11 points in FL and 9 points in OH. Again, if these trends hold, Romney will sweep all three states, according to CBS.

Of course, since this poll was commissioned by CBS, they are downplaying these results. Instead, Quinnipiac University, who conducted the poll, oversampled Democrats by a ridiculous amount to show Obama with a 5 point lead in OH and tied in VA and FL. To get this result, Quinnipiac had to juice the poll to show Democrats with a bigger turnout advantage than they enjoyed in 2008.

What part of 'everyone I know who was homeless had one if not more of those'? I read somewhere a long time ago something about building your house upon the sand. It was suppose to be about how to build your character but I think now it may have a new meaning.

Nope. The bad news is thanks to liberal Democrats she was legally allowed to abort the fetus when it was six years old.

The good news is now there will be one less liberal Democrat.

I am mocking DAwriter. Try to keep up.
I understand that in the right whiner world, it is OK to lie but not to use certain words.
Let's see what Saul Alinsky has to say about that....

Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals rule number 13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that should be regarded as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.' Any target can always say, "Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?" When your 'freeze the target,' you disregard these rational but distracting arguments.

and

"An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth -- truth to him is relative and changing." - Saul Alinsky

and let's just throw this in for the hell of it:

"Generally success or failure is a determinant of ethics."
(I love this last one. It defines the Democrats more than any other rule Saul Alinsky wrote.)

Or if re-elected, keep him on the golf course. Keep Mr. & Mrs. Extravagant going on fancy vacations and date nights and comedy shows. Anywhere but wreaking more havoc in Washington, DC. Tell Pimp with a Limp to ready the guest room.
