Out of fear of this thread dropping into the next page, I thought I'd toss this out there...

What does everyone think about the government's proposal to ban soldiers from utilizing the services of prostitutes while abroad?

I'm all for free enterprise.

I think it's a PR move to make the presence of our troops seem less intrusive.

I'm surprised nobody hassled me over my previous post. It appears FEMA is going to dump huge sums of money into Florida to help folks replace their mobile homes that blew away. Bad move. Meteorologists are talking about this being the beginning of a 30 year storm cycle for Florida. They need to build their houses of bricks, a la pig #3.

You'll be singing a different tune when the BIG ONE hits California BigWill. The money from FEMA is not just for homes. It's for rebuilding infrastructure as well.

I picked it up. However, I didn't know how to answer, as I am sometimes on the fence about FEMA....depending on how much of my liberal streak exposes itself . I definitely think that it should be reformed. There's no reason that the federal government should pick up the full tab on natural disasters. Instead, I would suggest that FEMA should be there to provide access to low-interest loans for rebuilding.

As BigWill put it, natural disasters happen....$hit happens. It's not the government's job to foot the bill for fixing things. That's why we have homeowners insurance, flood insurance, etc. If you don't have those, then you are taking that risk. People down in florida, especially those on the coast, knew the risks when they moved there (my mom included). Not having insurance in those scenarios is foolish.

I know that I might get flamed for the above statement by some of our more liberal peers here, but this is just another entitlement program bleeding the country. Just because a tornado rips your home apart doesn't mean that we as a country should pay to have your house rebuilt. Do like the rest of us.....file a claim with your insurance. If they don't replace the house, then pack up your crap, get an apartment, and start over. Home ownership is not an entitlement. If the forces of nature decide to take from you, nothing entitles you to have it back.

Now...just keep fingers crossed that a remnant of Jean doesn't twist up into a tornado and rip through my house for saying that.

I didn't mean scrap FEMA. I just meant that it is bad policy to replace mobile homes in areas that are likely to be torn apart again. They need to be looking at different types of dwellings maybe? Insurance companies probably are not willing to insure mobile homes down there, I'll bet.

Not to sound like a monster, but similar problems exist in Africa. Rather than address the underlying cause or find a true remedy, we have band-aid policy that does little to prevent future disasters and expenditures. In Africa there has been a 10,000 year cycle of drought that makes population increases difficult to sustain.
They need things like dams, irrigation projects and industrial scale farming technology in order to sustain more people than the natural environment will. Sending food relief only makes the problem worse.

This might sound bad, but is it too much to ask the people in Africa to not overpopulate to get to the point where they have those problems? I guess you'd have to put a limit on children per family or something like that to really enforce that, which is tough to do. It applies to the US too though. How long can some welfare families continue to have more kids when they can't support them? People should not be having children without the means to support those children on their own. Another tax credit is not a good reason to have another child. I just don't have much sympathy for people that put themselves into a situation that they know going in (or should anyway) that they can't handle, and yet they do it anyway and then want help from the govt.

Not that it's any surprise, but those Saudis sure hate Jews.
