Yesterday, Mitt Romney was asked about a dozen times what his plans were for FEMA and natural disasters. When he chose not to answer, or even acknowledge the questions, many assumed that he simply had no answer at all. As it turns out, this is not the case.

The Romney campaign has finally released their "Five-Step Disaster Plan," which can be found below the fold.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has developed a comprehensive plan to deal with natural disasters in a way that benefits everyone. By everyone, we mean the 52% of the country that counts. Well, okay, the 1% that counts.

The ground-breaking plan goes as such:

Step 1: Use eminent domain to purchase all effected land at "fair" market value.

Step 2: Harvest all salvageable material from the area: scrap metal, vehicles, babies, etc.

Step 3: Use already destroyed area to hide other junk, such as toxic waste.

Step 4: Cover destroyed area with new stuff to make it look worth more than it is.

Step 5: Sell area to China and forget about it.

Romney's Five-Step Disaster Plan is quite brilliant. Not only does it allow the federal government to profit off of disaster, but it also gets all those unsightly, dirty areas off the books so we can concentrate on the 1%.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Eliminate tax breaks that stimulate the offshoring of jobs.

    1)  Upon taking office, ring up Hu Jintao in Beijing, and tell him the US is going to sue China for "being a currency manipulator" (thereby keeping one of his promises from debate #3).

    2)  Next, ring up Vladimir Putin and read him the riot act over one thing or another.

    3)  Order air-strikes on Teheran.

    4)  Go on TV warning China and Russia to stay the hell out of it or the United States will consider any such involvement on their part to be an act of war against the US.  

    5)  BOOOM!

    But hey, look at the bright side.  Somewhere after step (2), there will be a building boom for backyard fallout shelters, and unemployment will drop to around 7% for the month or two it takes to build them.  

    "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!

  •  The fact that he doesn't know (0+ / 0-)

    when to use affected as compared to effected is quite telling . . . .

    Or maybe he's just playing to his RW nutcase base, where bad grammar totally resonates.
