Presidential Disaster Declaration Data Description

....

DATA DESCRIPTION AND ANALYSIS

Sources of the Data

The data base for this analysis was compiled from successive downloads of official disaster declaration information provided to Sylves by the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 1994*, 1997*, 2001*, 2003*, 2005*, 2006, and 2008*. This information is publicly displayed within this website. It is imperative that site users understand that it is impossible to obtain regular, daily updates of financial changes to declarations whose spending is not closed out. Therefore, this site is only updated once ever 12 to 16 months owing to the difficulty in securing this information from FEMA.. Web users can access the official DHS-FEMA presidential declaration website (at http://www.fema.gov/news/disasters.fema )to learn about major disasters, emergencies, and fire suppression declarations issued on an ongoing basis. However, DHS-FEMA usually does not make spending on these declarations open to the public. DHS-FEMA also does not make public the president's turndown actions on governor requests for declarations.

Gov Ronald Reagan of California campaigned for President promising to RETIRE the national debt.As Pres. he appt'd Stockman to show him how to do it.Stockman could count,and was bold enough to tell RR what RR didn't know,and RR's advisors didn't want to hear-"We can't retire the debt!We can't stop going deeper in debt because our gov't is  spending more each year than it has coming in."[but it is not bankruptcy until the BANKER calls-in the notes ]RR did what all politicians since have done-play Santa Claus,give-away,ON CREDIT,using taxpayer's credit card [not his own].Our BANKER from China came and issued notice ,but the US Govt didn't want you to know,and the NEWS MEDIA played along [ not wanting to jeapordize their IMBEDDED ,cozy relationship.You could not run your home or business the way this TWO-PARTY gov't is being run!They don't even have to print it anymore ,because it is fiat money-and it is not convertible to hard currency ,like gold and silver with real value.

 

The Corps of Engineers does what they can with recently limited resources.  You are still supposed to carry insurance.  If you don't then that is too bad for you.

Leftists do anything possible to make us hate them, but they have always failed: there is a difference between hate and pity.
