FEMA has been a 'profit from disaster' agency at least since NOLA under Bush (with some relief under Obama). Example: In NOLA a private contractor was paid $198 per square foot to put blue palstic tarps on roofs in the 9th Ward. They paid subcontractors $2 per square foot. 99% of our tax money was pure profit for the prime contractor - who bribed the 'right' people. [& no one is going to call me out for libel - because the law then requires that I be given full access to the financial records to prove my assertion.] Under Trump the new thing is that this profit-taking has been coupled to 'In Your Face' brutality. Flaunting their racism to inflame their base.

The attack on our planet for the profit of the fossil fuel industry (& international banking & the war machine), guarantees exponential growth in the number & severity of man-made 'natural disasters'. Even could we stop all fossil fuel use tomorrow, the momentum of climate change would not soon slow disasters.

So what must be done with FEMA? The rational purpose of the National Guard, and the Department of Defense, is to protect America The most deadly and destructive events in America in the last 15 years have been hurricanes, fires, floods. As Maria set its sights on Puerto Rico, I wrote Ted Yoho to (forcibly) suggest that the Navy hospital ship docked in Norfolk be stocked & sent to trail the storm - to arrive in Puerto Rico on the eve of the storms passing.

Crickets.

To this day crickets. That hospital ship did arrive in Puerto Rico - about 3 weeks after the storm. It was not appropriately outfitted for the mission.

I will propose that FEMA be abolished. And that the Guard & DoD be tasked with this positive mission.
