Where There’s Hope, There’s Abandoned FEMA Trailers

Filed under: Across the Fruited Plain — Steve @ 12:10 am

This photo. from page 1 of Tuesday’s NY Times, shows 10,000 empty trailor homes occupying a field in Hope, Arkanas, for which FEMA pays $250,000 per month in storage fees. The Times is cataloging FEMA’s astonishing waste and fraud over the last few years. Depending on your orientation, it’s either breathtaking or inspirational.

“We shipped them all to Bill Clinton’s hometown because we figured somehow he’d catch the blame,” explained a FEMA official (who requested anonymity). “And if anybody got mad, we could always say we were building FEMAville to honor his presidency. Doesn’t make a lot of sense, but we’re used to being thought of as unspeakably stupid. Besides, even FEMA knows you can blame Clinton for anything.”

    When I saw the photo, I just figured it was a rendering of western Broward in 10 years.

    Seems to me that for that much [chicken] scratch (is’nt Arkansas the chichen capital)you could not only rebuild every home for every displaced person in New Orleans, but probably do a pretty good job of rebuilding the entire city in a very short time.
