Concerned Citizen Award to FEMA?


Now some of you may think you know what that acronym stands for, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, right? Wrong. F.E.M.A actually stands for Fuck Every Miserable American (and those who soon will be).

Its latest endeavors have again impacted the victims of Katrina and Rita. How much more will these people have to suffer? For christs sake, it has been almost 2 years now and it has just come out that the trailers provided as shelter are laced with formaldehyde.
Since it was discovered in 2006, the agencies legal beagles decided that it would not be in FEMA’s interest to conduct testing to confirm the existence of the problem. They rejected environmental testing out of fear that the agency would then become legally liable if health problems emerged among as many as 120,000 families displaced by the hurricane.

This is one of our finest hours (tongue in cheek and governments hand up our ass) and to me it’s worse than what Ford did after they discovered the flaws with the Pinto gas tank. We have a Federal Agency covering up the possibility of health problems that already suffering people may face just to avoid some liability. Well guess what jackoff’s, the liability is still there and now it may cost even more (and a few deaths, but you don’t really care if a few people die do you?). What’s really sad is that there are still around 60,000 still living in trailers, apparently with no plans to remedy that either (hell, we don’t have a plan to extricate our troops, why should we have a plan to help Katrina victims?).

And I haven’t even mentioned the 12.5 million-dollar ice storage bill. They continue to play ping-pong with the ice, shipping it from one facility to another at a cost of about $9,000.00 per move. Not to worry though, no one will ever see any of it, much of it has exceeded its shelf life and is being destroyed.

It sure is a good thing this is the best country in the world, I'd hate to think of what it would be like to live here if it wasn't!
