      Class act! Alos, this may be an opportunity to rethink HUD properties in the urban sector as well…maybe a mix of housing and commercial/manufacturing to move people off of welfare into work.

        Unfortunately a substantial number of people on HUD can work, but don’t want to. You probably won’t find many factories willing to locate directly into hubs of criminal activity…

        That is a great idea!

        I have a couple of people doing a bit of casual labor around the farm (putting in new fence) and they have no transportation. I have to pick them up and take them home. Very Very few people will do that long term for someone working for them.

        They are both great workers but with no car and youthful felonies they have no real chance of getting the decent job they should be able to get. Without a job, no car and no chance to expunge the old felony. A real vicious circle, especially for those in rural areas.

        • It is rough to not have a car. You might look up the rules for mopeds in your area. In some places they are considered a glorified bicycle. Other places require a license plate, but don’t require a driver’s license. Might be worth looking into for them.

      The criminality of our msm is particularly striking right now…In watching, DHS, SMA, and HUD Cabinet members quickly report status of their work, and moving on to FEMA report, its a shame that many folks do not have easy access to this understanding of the level of co-ordination involved in addressing this Historic Event.
      It is not only that msm lies, and never reports anything of significance, their sins of omission are, imo, their worst.
      I have faith in the Administration to effectively deal with the need of Americans to have a news source they can trust.
      I will, along with all of you, applaud the day such new broadcasting becomes available.
      Also believe FCC will receive attention from the Trump Administration.
      We must wait, watch, and pray.
      Praise God for President Trump !!
      God bless the USA.

      Beautiful heartfelt statement!

      Statement by First Lady Melania Trump on Hurricane Harvey

      “The effects of Hurricane Harvey will be felt in Texas, Louisiana, and other parts of the country for many months and years to come. So far, 1.7 million people are under orders to evacuate their homes, and, as the floodwater in Houston rises, sadly, so will the number of evacuees.

      I want to be able to offer my help and support in the most productive way possible, not through just words, but also action. What I found to be the most profound during the visit was not only the strength and resilience of the people of Texas, but the compassion and sense of community that has taken over the State. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the people of Texas and Louisiana.”

    Is there some political optic for referring to Harvey as a ‘Tropical Storm’ vs ‘Hurricane’? Seems all the media outlets seem to prefer the former to the latter.

    The contrast between our Gift from God and his predecessor from Kenya is so stark that their is no way his disciples can try to reconcile it! Also the contrast between our Angel for a First Lady, Melania and whatever you want to call the previous FLOTUS is also on full display.

    Barry decided that “Jihadist” Valerie could deal with the inconvenience in LA while he stayed with his wife and daughters on vacation. Michelle gets mad according to Barry when their vacation is interrupted!

    From the article linked above:

    Obama paused vacation to fundraise but not to visit Louisiana

    In remarks President Barack Obama made August 15, he said that his wife, Michelle Obama, insists that he commit to vacation when he’s on vacation. It’s understandable that Mrs. Obama would insist that the president, a husband and father of two teenagers, carve off a dedicated block of time to spend time with them. The irony is that the president made his remark at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton. He suspended his vacation to raise money for her, but he didn’t suspend his vacation to visit a flooded Baton Rouge.

    Maybe the sanctity of his vacation time would have been more respected if he hadn’t seen fit to break it to raise money for his party. His vacation now over, the president has announced plans to visit Louisiana Tuesday, Aug. 23.

    “I am not complaining about our federal partnership in any way,” Gov. John Bel Edwards said Thursday when asked about the president not coming to Louisiana. “The president is welcome to visit whenever he wants to visit.” Edwards also said, “I have been in contact with the White House just about every day, with Valerie Jarrett (the president’s senior advisor) and others.”

    What struck me while watching this clip was the competency and calmness of your President and his cabinet members.
    Neither Dr Carson, FLOTUS,McMahon or PDJT needed to undertake trying to MAGA.

    We all know they were enormous successes in their lives before politics. Look at them now, putting it all out there.

    The USA really hit the jackpot with these wonderful people

    They really do make McConnell and Ryan look inept, petty and small

    Your MSM and the reptilian Republicans are slithering into utter irrelevancy.

    Great Stuff! Thank you all.

      If not in I believe it is a 100 year flood plane homeowners ins cover for single storm events . any casualty guys here?


      • G. Combs says:

        I do not know about Texas, but normally if you are in a flood plan AND have a mortgage, the bank INSISTS on flood insurance.

        I went round and round on that one since our property is on a river. However the house is on a bluff 120 feet ABOVE the 100 year flood plain. I had to get the state geologist to mark my topo map and the survey plot with house location to placate the bank and the county planning board.

        Actually, the purpose of the banderillos, etc. is not to bleed the bull. It is to weaken his neck and shoulder muscles a bit in order to bring his head down for the kill. I admire both the bulls andvthe matadors: both very brave.

    Good Commentary by


  21. nimrodman says:

    Here’s a thought I almost hate to verbalize:

    What do we think are the prospects that lower-level Obama holdovers in FEMA and other response agencies will MONKEYWRENCH and slow-walk reimbursements and other post-storm aid to victims?

    Flood-insurance request comes in from victim … gets “misplaced”. Or slow-responsed. That kinda thing.

    PresTrump needs to give higher-up managers their walking orders on administrating lower-level employes, make sure record-keeping of applications for aid runs at a high hum, and holding employees to performance standards. This could actually be an opportunity to get rid of many of them if they underperform and are sufficiently held to account (rough sequence is warning, performance plan, document failure to improve, fired).

    So far there’s an overall good portrayal to FedGov’s response, but I’m concerned about the back end. Jersey folks can give you plenty of stories about glacial response and difficulty in getting reimbursed after Hurricane Sandy, even when they had flood and hurricane coverage.

    We don’t need that kind of bad press on this one, and I’m concerned the Deep State will do its best to monkeywrench the response for no other reason than to discredit our President.

    Houstonians – you have made it through the maelstrom.. cold, wet, tired, battered – but not defeated. There will be more challenges as it winds down, but you have bore the brunt and have made it this far, weary but battle hardened, don’t give up now. Get through the long damp night.. Sunshine is not far away.. it will come.. reach down deep and keep the flame going.. hang in there.. y’all have done good.. wear the Houston badge with honor.. you have earned it..

      That’s great.

      So she had heels on when BOARDING the plane, is that the deal? And then media goes haywire making fun of her going to a disaster zone in heels? And then she steps off in sneakers?

    On Fox News’ Hannity show at about 17 or 18 minutes in, there’s a good video walk-along past arriving Cajun Navy by the field correspondent.

    Shows monster trucks with huge tires towing trailers with duck boats, air boats, jet skis, etc. They’re sitting staged in some parking lot in the dark waiting for assignments.

    It was really great to see, it’s only a minute or so but I really enjoyed it.
    Catch it on later re-broadcast or video clip when it becomes available.

    Trump was greeted in Corpus Christi by 1,000s of happy patriots. He was greeted in Austin by a handful of thumbsucking protestors which included a loudmouth University of Texas law professor.
