    Does anyone still live with the illusion that can rely on anything else for your safety in a disaster?

    Why, oh why, don't people stock up on canned goods and bottled water in advance?

    Why don't we just take money for more emergency supplies out of the B.A.T.F.E.'s budget? How's that for a reasonable compromise, eh?

    and these are the people that will help us after an attack by the really really bad guys.
    do they give us notice so we can stock up?

    I want to scream.

    To loosely quote Gov. Bush from this mornings news, "We gave everyone 6 days notice to get out, or stock up on water and food. I don't why they're out [of supplies]already and in lines"

    It's really a Conspiracy between Pres "Stalin" Bush and his brother Gov "Mugabe" Bush, to starve all the black people in Florida.

    This Christmas, I will drive to my mother's house in the snow across Massachusetts and upstate New York. It will be very cold. There are a limited number of hours of daylight. Cell phone connectivity is terrible.

    I will drive on bald tires, a quarter tank of gas and broken windshield wipers. I will take my two kids.

    If I run into problems, FEMA will need to rescue me. They need to be patrolling the highways. We will need blankets and hot food. They will need to replace my tires, wipers and fill my gas tank. For free.

    I can't be responsible for the weather.

    It's the same people who around here demand free fans because it is too hot & they don't have a/c. The next year they want another fan because the previous year when it cooled off in the fall they threw their (functioning) fan away :banghead: .

    There are days when I wouldn't mind a serious disaster on a global scale just to put some long overdue chlorine in the gene pool.....

    Stop giving out $2,000 dollar debit cards, and spend the money on supplies, FEMA.
    And everyone, PREPARE YOURSELVES FOR A DISASTER. Keep your own stocks of essential items. I just started preparing my home this weekend, and while I don't have everything I need yet, I looked at what I'd accomplished, and felt very good about it. I won't be heading to any FEMA or Red Cross centers when something bad happens in San Diego.

    For Pete's sake, some people are such idiots, you forgot to flush your radiator and fill it with distilled water. Did you drain the fluid from the brake lines so they don't freeze and crack? You also forgot to loosen the lugnuts (they need space to contract in the cold)

    How about people meet their own needs?
    Perhaps you should have saved some money, or stockpiled some gas, Hector.

    I liked what Jeb Bush said about this, something like people have had weeks to prepare and can't blame the government for this.
