Here is where that 50 billion went.  Btw Katrina got 80 I believe.

I stand corrected with the Katrina money, the stat I saw was broken down by area per storm, not storm overall. I will state that $50 billion is too much for Super Storm Sandy since insurance paid so much into the repairs but some of the money was certainly a proper usage of the government money.

The Heroes of Hurricane Ian. 

 

“Ian gave untold numbers of Florida men and women the opportunity to step up and show the world what they’re made of. Sure enough, they did.”

The media can’t wait to blame DeSantis for Hurricane Ian.  Of course, that’s nothing new. 

 

Bush got blamed for Katrina.  And the recent report of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights put the blame on Trump for Hurricane Maria. 

 

What’s interesting is how the blame gets assigned to the federal, state, or territorial level depending on where the Republicans are.

…because this doesn’t sound racist…😉

 

Did she say this because she’s assuming all communities of color are poor, or just because she’s a racist, or both?

 

And what about people of color who make six figures? Do they get first treatment too?

 

And if not, perhaps a better thing to say is that the Administration is going to focus on helping low income areas (because that would include all races)…but instead, they can’t help themselves, and HAVE to show their racism…sad…

I’m assuming this is him voting against climate change stuff? Not actual hurricane relief stuff? These two are separate. 

Of course you know you can’t trust the political spin of the msm…they will say and do anything to take someone down…

 

I just yawn, and keep it moving…sad that they can’t be trusted, but they dug their own grave long ago…👍

This is unbelievable. Totally shocked by the impact of this. Didn’t think it would be anywhere near this bad. 

 

So hope the government operates in a smooth efficent manner  to get to the people 8n need. 


I hope the communities get to work helping each other rebuild instead of sitting around waiting until government saves them…

One of the more interesting discussions I had was post-Katrina, when at a party, I discussed the federal response to Katrina by President Bush.  
 

What followed a seemingly innocuous conversation about state v federal responsibility morphed into a crazy lady yelling at me about how George Bush left people on rooftops to die.   I realize now I should have walked away, but I tried to have a civil conversation and simply kept correcting her. 
 

At one point, she looked at her husband and asked why he wasn’t helping her out, and he said “Because he’s right.”. 
 

The way a president/gov is judged by media in handling a crisis is directly related to the agenda and spin of the media reporting.
