D.C. Files for FEMA Funding

Facing the worst drought of ideas in eighty years, and exacerbated by the Bush presidency, our nation’s capital has filed for emergency relief funds. “We once used to export ideas, with Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Eleanor Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Duke Ellington, Dave Chappelle. Now our concept economy has dried up,” said Deputy Vice Mayor of District Parks, Giuliana Scherzo. “We might have to ask Europe for help with our idea deficit. Perhaps they could send Lars Von Trier or Werner Herzog to help out. In the past, we could ask Hollywood or Mowtown for a fresh thought or two, but have you seen the latest movies and heard the latest records?”

“Who knows when and where the next ideas will come,” said long time D.C. resident Emiliano Cassius Bolivar, Jr, owner of an acting studio for Congressional members. “We thought that Obama and his team would help address the conceptual deficit in our nation’s capital, but it just hasn’t happened.”

And since the new Republican dominated House has taken over, the reserve supply of ideas has run dry.

It also didn’t help that Michelle Rhee was D.C. schools chancellor from 2007 to 2010 trotting out her tried and failed concept of high stakes testings.

Representative Peter King suggested that if D.C. used FEMA funds, that it would have to be paid for by budget cuts, but perhaps D.C. residents could work as maids and butlers to reconcile the budget.

With the retirement of Bill Gates and now Steve Jobs, no relief is in sight for this crisis.

Stop the Socialist FEMA Takeover of the Midwest

Tornado kills at least 89, leaves ‘total devastation’ in Missouri town

In Joplin, Mo., damage is widespread. Severe weather hits other parts of the Midwest, including Minneapolis, where one person is killed.

Over one hundred people have died in a rash of tornadoes that have ravaged the Midwest, and Obama wants to use this tragedy to promote his socialist agenda. The President wants to use his nanny state powers to swoop in and help people of Missouri and the region. This is the kind of socialism that the state’s legislature has recently rejected,

4 Missouri Senators reject further prostitution by the Federal government.

Last week we had four State Senators stand up to the political machine, the federal government and the Democratic Governor in our state, filibustering a bill giving Missouri stimulus funds the government doesn’t have that would have extended unemployment benefits from 79 weeks (a YEAR AND A HALF) up to 99 weeks. (5 weeks short of TWO YEARS). The media in our state has portrayed this move as cruelty to the unemployed. Unfortunately they are not reporting the whole story.” (link)

Yes, the state legislature refuses aid for the unemployed caught under the dual tornado of joblessness and state cuts, and they should stick to their guns, and pull them out of their holsters, to refuse socialist FEMA funds to help those affected by the recent tornadoes.

Obama is using this tragedy to start his FEMA military camps http://www.freedomfiles.org/war/fema.htm in the heartland,

“FEMA was never before a militant organization but, was created and then used to address helping people in times of disasters.  No more.  From Obama’s own mouth, it will now be used to fight some strange and dark Obama war.  And why were FEMA camps across the country recently refurbished and military Ads placed for people to guard whomever is going to be placed in them?  Again, Obama is at war against whom?”

The current role of the Republican Party is to decry government projects, all government (especially federal) institutions, and all spending by the government that is targeted toward average people other than local police and national military efforts. Their efforts target unemployment insuranceattack the Department of Education, target family planning and health care for women and all people, and recently have gone after Medicaid.

Will they stick to their ideology and refuse socialist FEMA funding? Or, will they realize that the government sometimes does some things well, and even if not perfect, we all need help that is beyond our means at times.

Here’s to hoping that Missouri Republicans refuse FEMA relief aid in a continuing show of disdain for the public good. After all, they have promise to refuse “as many federal funds as they can.” (link) That will show the socialist Democratic Governor Jay Nixon who’s in charge.
