Doug Collins is our new representative in the US Congress (GA 9). As his first official vote for legislation he voted NO for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

Doug Collins votes NO for Hurricane Sandy Relief to increase funding for flood insurance.

To temporarily increase the borrowing authority of the Federal Emergency Management Agency for carrying out the National Flood Insurance Program

I just sent the following email to Doug Collins asking him why he voted NO for Hurricane Sandy Relief. You can do this same.

Message Subject: NO vote on Hurricane Sandy Relief
Message Text:
Hi Doug, I would appreciate knowing why you voted NO on Hurricane Sandy Relief. Georgia victims of tornado damage routinely get federal assistance. In the big Gainesville Tornado of 1936 when several hundred people died the federal government provided alot of assistance. Will you vote NO for any Georgia Tornado or other disaster relief in the future?.

Would you like a response? Y

Maybe he has finally learned that our country can't keep spending more money than it has? The credit cards are all maxed out and the bank note is about to be past due. I have a question for you, why are the democrats whining and complaining instead of volunteering their time and personal resources helping the victims?

The Sandy Relief Bill was filled with pork which had nothing to do with Sandy relief. Plus, there was additional funding for FEMA which had not even asked for it. So typical.

Do you know Rep Collis personally? Your "Hi Doug" would indicate you do. So why did you not just call him at home since you know him so well? Also, please teell us what the GAinville tornado of 1936 has to do with this now. I would be surprised if you even get an answer from "Doug".

The Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill was directed at increasing the funds in the federal government's flood insurance program. What could be wrong with this?

There was "pork" in the bill, but this is almost always the case so why discriminate here.

Here is what Charles Krauthamer had to say on Fox News.

I think what Boehner did in postponing the vote until today was absolutely right, Krauthammer declared.That was a rape of the Treasury $60 billion, including a ton of pork. The part that was essentially passed today to replenish the flood insurance. That is right, and the rest ought to be debated in regular order.

Charles Krauthamer said it was the right thing to do the pass Hurricane Sandy Relief.

I'll let you know what Doug says. I don't personally know Representative Collins but I will be introducing myself the first chance I get. I will encourage him to address me by my first name.
You are a damn fool

you are a damn fool, we do need to help people from a disaster,what we need to stop is all the foolish spending that gets done. I hope you or I are ever in the place those folks have been, I do not have a problem helping someone in real need, I do however, have a problem keeps up those fat bastards in the Senate and the House that waste out money on a daily bases.

I have a problem with idiots who build on a coastline and whine because a hurricane wipes out their homes. Let them pay for high priced insurance not subsidized by all the rest of us who live on high ground. Federal flood insurance is a sham. If it's not, why then is there not a federal tornado insurance fund? Let's stop rewarding idiots who live in high risk places, or, even worse than that in places below sea level like New Orleans.

what about the same ones that have a garage attached to their house and die of carbon monoxide or the ones with a fire place and a fire gets out and burns the house down or the ones that build on a mountain and the house slides off or the one going to fast in a car and looses control and we pay his hospital bill and property damage there all kinds of things we do because we want beautiful views or a nice fire or a garage for our cars, sometimes we pay the price, but I am sure you are too smart to do anything like that, but their are a lot of us who do, and thank God we live in a country where we help our neighbor, even if the tragedy could have been prevented or was just plain human error, but since you are above the rest of us, we know you will never need our help asswhole

You must be one of the idiots who live on the coast (Florida, no doubt) whose federal flood insurance I get to subsidize each year with my taxes.

Atlanta flood update: More FEMA relief, flash flood watch
SEPTEMBER 26, 2009
BY: JACKIE KASS
http://www.examiner.com/article/atlanta-flood...

Fourteen counties in metro Atlanta are now eligible to receive FEMA disaster assistance. Counties added today were Catoosa, DeKalb, Fulton, Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale counties. Carroll, Chattooga, Cherokee, Cobb, Douglas, Paulding, Walker and Stephens counties were previously placed on the federal disaster list. This means that residents and business owners can now apply for federal assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The AJC reports that more than 3,600 residents and business owners have already applied for federal aid, and that was before the additional counties were announced. Only Clayton, Crawford and Forsyth counties remain to be cleared for federal assistance out of the 17 counties originally requested by Governor Sonny Perdue.

Here is a list of FEMA Disaster Declarations for Georgia from 1953 to 2011. Should FEMA be shut down and Georgia pay for all disaster assistance?

Would that be all government or just federal, state or local government or schools or special authorities.

Who will keep us safe from the terorists if we have no government. Who will build the roads, put out the fires and protect us from criminals? Every man for himself and the devil take the hindmost?

Nuts Are Back has a legitimate and debatable point that can be made, while on the other hand you seem to go out of the way to present an irrational and absurd rant void of reason. And I might add in a foolhardy manner.

Its been a while since I have posted, but many still recognize my past posting persona, so I just want to make it clear, your view as opposed to those of mine appear to be on different ends of the spectrum.

Maybe, you might reconsider your posting name, how about IRNUTTS? That would certainly bridge the gap between us.

I totally agree with you about the subsidized Flood Insurance sham. The guy suggesting that the majority of the $60B is going to that program is just WRONG.

Since when should we NOT be outraged about the disgusting, shameless PORK in the bill? Who came up with $60B- Christy? Seems that was close to the originally requested amount... where was the "negotiation" to the "real" number? I would have voted no too... not for lack of concern for those legitimately in need, but because of pork, lack of emotionless verification, and what will likely be little oversight. That is one heckuva LOT of money.

Sometimes you have to climb out of the gutter to reach a basic level of understanding.

Try it, you may at the very least achieve a more clever cloak, and without the crudities and trash talk, be taken better.

If we had to spend a bunch of money to divert an asteroid heading straight toward us, would Republicans force us to offset it with cuts in domestic programs first?
