Camp Fema

On April 1, 1979, President Carter signed Executive Order 12127, and created FEMA for the purpose of coordinating the response to disasters that occur in the US, and that overwhelm the resources of states.  FEMA absorbed the Federal Insurance Administration, The National Fire Prevention and Control Admin, National Weather Service Community Preparedness Program. FEMA was also given the responsiblity of overseeing national civil defense.

In 2003, FEMA became part of the Department of Homeland Security's emergency response and directorate. .

FEMA's implicit objective: to provide aid to victims of disaster, changed under the directive of former President George W. Bush to protect our nation from dangerous people. Wait. Isn't that what our military is for? Our local and state police?

Well, 90% of the populatin of New Orleans was displaced by Hurricane Katrina, but according to Michael Brown, the White House was fairly reluctant to support. After all, it was only a natural disaster...not the forces of "evil".

A government report on the response of FEMA to Hurricane Katrina, was that FEMA was so beyond repair...so dysfunctional, that the agency should be scrapped.  But, unfortunately, it's still with us.
