    FEMA Denies Perry's Disaster Declaration Request - cbs11tv.com

    I'd be curious to see how many disaster declarations have been denied. I've never heard of one until today.

    Texas is a proud state and a firm believer in the 10th Amendment. They know that the Constitution says nothing about providing emergency relief to a state so the responsibility falls to the individual state.

    Given Rick Perrys secessionist views, I would not want to insult the man by offering him money

    I agree. Taking it a step further, I think Texas residents shouldn't have to pay Federal Taxes either.

    There is nothing Obama does with the country's money that does not serve his own political ends.

    The real question is, why is a traitorous anti-constitution secessionist asking for federal money?

    Texas realizes how worthless the Federal Gubmint is and that they do nothing to help the states. For the US Government to send money to help individuals in Texas would amount to SOCIALISM

    Texas should set an example for the rest of the states and deny federal aide and take care of their own problems.

    Because some of it is taken from the people of Texas.

    It's time we get a little real about whose money is government money.

    FEMA crunches numbers and looks at the ratio of uninsured losses compared to local, county and states ability to to respond. Williamson County has numerous home owners who got screwed while those who were flooded by the Rio Grande this summer were compensated. Why? Because they were poor.

    Hey asswipe. Does Texas contribute to the Federal pot? If they do then sit down and shut the fuck up.
