FEMA dicks people in Alabama over.

As residents of states affected by severe weather and tornadoes this spring continue the difficult task of recovery, at least a few whose homes were nearly destroyed have been deemed ineligible for federal grants due to "insufficient damage," The Birmingham News reported Sunday.

The newspaper talked to one family who received the startling assessment from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) after their Pleasant Grove, Ala., home was reduced to "nothing but bricks and debris scattered over a concrete slab" during a deadly April tornado, the paper said.

"Based on your FEMA inspection, we have determined that the disaster has not caused your home to be unsafe to live in," the letter from FEMA rejecting Jonathan Stewart's grant application said.

Lashunta Tabb received the same letter, the newspaper reported, although her house in North Smithfield Manor, Ala., lost more than half of its roof and sustained other damage in the tornado.

According to The Birmingham News, FEMA said "insufficient damage" is the top reason in Alabama that people are initially classified as ineligible for grants.

Living in Missouri for many years, and seen the impact of tornadoes, I'm aware of the fraud propagated on insurance companies to get that roof reshingled when it didn't really need it. Having said that, this administration knows it can't win Alabama in '12, so it's payback time.

Hey, how about the Texas fires? And it's grey sky time here in SW Missouri from the Arizona fires started by illegal imigrant camp fires.

It's all about Chicago style politics. Lick my boots, and you'll get a dollar. Don't lick my boots, and you'll get the toe in your face!

He won't care unless somebody accuses Obama of not caring about white people, the same way that Bush was accused of not caring about blacks.

LOL! Wouldn't surprise me if their voting and political donation history were checked first.
