Obama: Use war chest to fund FEMA for Irene victims
Paul(R-TX), and GOP presidential hopeful, spoke with Chris Wallace on
Fox News Sunday this morning detailing the reasons why he says,
“Fema is not a friend”, finally saying that when the Obama
administration requests extra money for broke FEMA to aid states hit by
Hurricane Irene, he was willing to deal with Obama by using money

The Los Angeles Times examines the staggering sums of money expended on patently absurd domestic "homeland security" projects: $75 billion per year for things such as a Zodiac boat with side-scan sonar to respond to a potential attack on a lake in tiny Keith County, Nebraska, and hundreds of "9-ton BearCat armored vehicles, complete with turret" to guard against things like an attack on DreamWorks in Los Angeles. All of that -- which is independent of the exponentially greater sums spent on foreign wars, occupations, bombings, and the vast array of weaponry and private contractors to support it all -- is in response to this mammoth, existential, the-single-greatest-challenge-of-our-generation threat: Read More
