During the financial meltdown in 2009, Rick Santelli asked if you wanted to pay for your neighbor’s house. CLICK HERE for a video that will specifically enlighten you on what is happening again in Florida and Texas. America, are you pistoff yet? But wait let us not spare the details.
As reported by the WSJ’s Ruth Simon. Brian Harmon just finished spending $330k to fix up his home in Kingswood, Tx when hurricane Harvey bathed the house in flood water. This is the 22nd time since 1979 that the house was flooded. REPEAT 22 TIMES. YES, SINCE 1979 thru last year, you (Uncle Sam) has coughed up $1.8 million dollars to rebuild the house that is worth $600,000. What kind of bull is this? Are words that you typically hear in a bar full of stevedores now coming from your mouth?
Looking at the statistics, repetitive flood properties account for 2% of the 1.5 million that have flood insurance, but FEMA pays out 30% of their claims to these freeloaders. But that is not all. FEMA will even buy your house to alleviate further claims at above market price. Effectively, the risk of owning these properties is passed on to the government (us).
Once again as the story noted nearly half the frequently flooded properties have received more that their homes are worth. Because of FEMA insurance bad behavior is condoned by Uncle Sam. After Harvey 1850 homeowners have asked Harris County Flood Control Department’s buyout program to be put on the list.
US SUCKERS PAY FOR RISKY BEHAVIOR.
Oh we forgot to tell you that the Flood Program is under water to the tune of $25,000,000,000 not counting Harvey and Irma. The floodgates have opened once again and it is not unreasonable to expect another $25,000,000,000 to be added to the toll.
If Harvey wasn’t enough, now comes Irma with Jose to follow; Irma is the most devastating storm ever to evolve in the Atlantic. This storm is not the usual wind/rain affair it is better described as the mother of all hay makers. The storm battered the island chains lying in the Caribbean; Barbuda was a wipe out.
Onward and upward the storm has pulverized the Keys as it heads northwest toward Florida taking its toll along the way. Miami has escaped the head to head match-up that was originally expected.
Now it is Tampa’s turn, Atlanta is next to see the beast of Irma do its thing which reminds us of Sherman’s march to the sea 150 years ago.
What has caused such wrath? Global warming is the usual suspect. This storm is no gully washer for sure. Even Noah would find it difficult keeping afloat and he had God on his side!
Little did they realize the breath and zeal that Harvey would level on them. As the storm approached those in its path were shocked in disbelief. They weren’t evacuated, so they were sanguine to the coming flood. This was no gully washer, this was the biblical 40 days and 40 nights flood.
Over fifty inches a rain came down in a fury. Raining cats and dogs was not an apt description, winds at the epicenter spared no one. Houston was tormented for days on end, with no place to go the residents had to stay put while they bared the brunt of the storm; all wondering if Noah’s Ark will come to the rescue. And as the sun rises by day, the FEDERAL ARK named FEMA will soon be arriving in Houston.
Expect the unexpected aptly applies to those who live on the water. The Big One is always a possibility and timing is everything. The calm before the “it won’t hit us” storm can and will when least expected. And don’t forget the liberal retards (libtards) who said, “Texas got what it deserved.” Funny that they would say ‘that Houston deserved what it got.’ If memory serves us correctly, Houston went for Hillary (Lock her Up) Clinton. Perhaps there is a God after all.
“We’ve been dealing with [FEMA Administrator] Brock Long all day long and he’s been emphasizing the necessity that everybody come to grips with how long this is going to take in order to rebuild the Houston area because of this once in a lifetime flooding incident,” Governor Abbott went on.
Harvey was forecast to move inland Wednesday, bringing its downpours to Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee and parts of Missouri. The system has dumped up to 51 inches of rain on parts of southeastern Texas, a record for any storm in the continental United States.
Our hearts go out to the residents of Texas who survived the storm; our sympathy goes out to those families who suffered the loss of loved ones.
