Hello!! Anyone home?

Good Post from Best View

We've learned in recent days FEMA trailers remain on acres of ground in Arkansas instead of being used to house Katrina evacuees. Yesterday I heard one of the reasons. Many of the places where those trailers are needed are in floodplains. There is some sort of a federal regulation which says that you cannot put one of these FEMA trailers in a floodplain. This is your government we're talking about. Common sense and efficiency? Evidently not. The reality is that most of these trailers will never be used. Taxpayers were asked for $800 million to buy the trailers and then insisted on enforcing rules which prevent them from being used.
