Can somebody please explain this to me?


How can we have a "National Guard" that is 382 years old when our nation is only 242 years old?

Three Weeks Later, Still No FEMA Trailers Available for Camp Fire Survivors


Three Weeks Later, Still No FEMA Trailers Available for Camp Fire Survivors

Three weeks after the start of the Camp Fire in Butte County, the deadliest, most destructive wildfire in modern California history, thousands of residents from the town of Paradise and surrounding communities ravaged by the blaze are still living in shelters and tents or staying with friends and relatives.

Although the Federal Emergency Management Agency has been providing hotel vouchers to those displaced by the fire, many survivors are frustrated that few longer-term solutions have been provided.

Since he fled his home three weeks ago, Ulis Gordon has been staying in a tent in an empty lot next to a Walmart in nearby Chico. The lot has turned into a makeshift refugee encampment, where dozens of tents housing displaced survivors have sprung up since the fire.


Garcia [FEMA Spokesperson] says FEMA has more than 80 trailers ready to go, but that would barely begin to house the more than 2,000 people that need them.

The hotel vouchers FEMA has been offering are only good for up to 90 days. But the agency said that once the trailers become available, fire survivors could likely live in them for at least 18 months.

More at link. Of course Puerto Rico still doesn't have its infrastructure back, Floridians still don't have trailers either. Hell of a job FEMA!
