This is retarded. People always abuse the Govnt handouts. FEMA was paying for roofs damaged 3 months before hurricane Ivan ever hit, they cant aford the law suits, so they just hand out cash. This is smoke and morros to hide how they missed the Able Danger report, and how this wacky memorial for flight 93 that crashed in PA is going to be... drum roll

A red cresent!

I'm waiving my bull shit flag.
