3. Didn't we all know that was coming?
Why else would they be in such a hurry to scatter the evacuees to 48 states?

Divide and conquer..pure and simple..

FEMA could have given every evacuee some CASH and helped them get to family in other places in Louisians that were not devastated. You KNOW most of those people probably had family in other towns/cities who would have gladly taken them in...especially if they had a little cash to help out..

They wanted "those people" OUT of the state and out PERMANENTLY..

Just imagine the mess a single mother with a few kids is in, if she was sent to say....Colorado? How on earth will she be able to afford to get back?

The powers that be probably thought.."these are poor folks..they can be poor "somewhere else".. :(
