    APNewsBreak: FEMA favors existing housing for Joplin victims, but some up to 55 miles away - The Washington Post


    WTF is wrong with the Obama Administration?

    Why aren't temp houses available for NEARLY SIX YEARS for Joplin Tornado Victims???

    Is it BECAUSE THEY ARE WHITE!!:eek:

    Maybe there should be fewer $$$ spent dropping bombs on Lybia, and more on temporary housing for victims of Natural Disasters that live OUTSIDE New Orleans?

    Not to worry, Samson - they denied help to Southwestern Virginia as well. They got hit by those tornadoes that came through here. Hell, folks in the Appalachians are pretty far down on the poverty level ... but, come to think of it, there are white majorities all through there, too. I figured it was because Virginia has a Republican Governor. Maybe Missouri's Governor is Republican? Maybe it's all of the above.

    If you're white, the best thing to do after a storm destroys your home is find some brown shoe polish and a National News Team.

    I might rather have a tornado hit my home.

    ***places brown shoe polish in emergency kit, next to bottled water***

    Possibly because these people believe in helping themselves and not expect the government to take care of them birth to grave. And lets not forget that NO was NOT the only place hit and destroyed by katrina, THEY haven received what NO did either.

    I watched a news piece last night.... its the people of joplin helping each other.

    I wanted to see if you could be as pointless during the a.m. as any other part of the day.

    Thanks for playing.
