well they were saying it was the mother of all storms and a historical event

Harvey was way worse in the damage it caused in Houston. All we heard from the left was, oh its Texas they deserve it blah blah blah.

Florida had some flooding but its nowhere near the doomsday scenario being promoted by CNN and the BBC.

it's a ploy by politicians to pocket public money & give sops to their cronies in the guise of aid. happens not just in america but every democratic country in the world.

but.....
62 people died due to irma.
lot of poor now homeless. lost all property. 70% cars won't work.
tourism industry hit on bahamas. many lost livelihoods.
no power in many areas.
25% homes destroyed. 65% got major damages
no transportation for next month or so as places are water logged.
expect diseases from still water.

yes. this all needs money.

i doubt if 1/10 of it reaching actual victims.


a better example of what you were trying to describe is what happened in Haiti in wake of the earthquake

I dont think Trump is that corrupt although he is compromised by the military takeover of the government
