As a response to my post on the pending arrival of Irene, Mud has posted his opinion on how lucky we are to have a meddling federal government to help us in the event of a natural disaster. He is completely wrong, but since he has experienced so many hurricanes in Toledo, lets be sure and hear him out.
Jeff is replying to a pretty good comment by Minnesota Central, who seems to be very middle of the road. Jeffio also uses misinformation as the basis of his retort. Many of these lefties only read the mission statement of government agencies, then assume that they all do what they say they'll do. In reality, none of them do what they propose to do.
Notice Jeffio thinks I will take full advantage of government help. What a joke. In the hurricanes in NC in the past 15 years, I have never applied for, nor have I received any "help" from the US Government, or that of the state of North Carolina. Notice "And rebuildin’ for the neighbor folk counts if the repairs are paid for by the government and/or insurance."
Does this turd think that the money insurance companies pay out on claims comes from the government? How is it that we have such idiots in this country? People pay insurance premiums out of their after tax money, Jeffio. If I work for my neighbors and their insurance company writes me a check, that is not "government assistance." See if you can get a little more "schoolin" fore you open up yer yap again.
I have to go now. I'm going over to a neighbors to cut down a tree that is worrying him. For free, Jeffio. That's how neighbors are supposed to behave.
