  •  My house... (0+ / 0-)

    Well, i just bought 2 properties before the storm.
    i invested my life savings, so i could rent them out, and have an income.
    I couldnt get insurance.
    i called right after i bought them, but no-one would insure me cos there was a storm
    in the gulf (of mexico)
    so i talked to FEMA,, and since it wasnt my PRIMARY residence, i got zilch....
    (my home was insured)
    so i got insurance for that only.

    anyway, FEMA said that one of my properties was 1.5% damaged.

    does this look like one and 1/2 percent ?
    well, i am rebuilding on a loan (with interest) to the Small Buisiness Association.

    the ARMY Corp of Engineers was supposed to make sure the levee was built right,
    so what do i do ?
    sue them ?
    we pay tax $ for that stuff to be taken care of.
    Bush REJECTED a proposal for money to New Orleans , a few million would have saved Billions....
