The Trump Presidency...

We will never see eye to eye on this, but then again what kinds of disasters do you folks have to worry about in Old Blighty? Floods and some winter storms?
In common with Wyoming, we never have to worry about hurricanes of the sort Puerto Rico is faced with.

Hasn't it crossed your mind that, since Puerto Rico is visited regularly by these disasters, the poor bastards may have already exhausted their spare capacity and emergency stockpiles on the last one?
 
He can’t even finish the bigliest bestest wall/fence/chalk line that he was going to build in his country, let alone one over there!
Yes but he'd build it - and you may not know this but it's true - probably very, very cheaply. And it would be the best wall ever. He'll make someone else pay as well no doubt.

The man is a moron and every time he opens his mouth, he proves it.

Why does he always caveat his remarks with the likes of "probably", "maybe" or "we'll see". Is he not confident that he's always right, being the cleverest person to ever have lived?

No spinning vortexes of death and destruction?

Bertha in 2014 me thinks. They manage to get hit quite often, but they still have breaks in between to prepare for the next one.
 
Used to the power going out, no public transportation here though. But I do have a shovel and 4 wheel drive. Do the grocery stores get raided and ransacked?
No, because the roads are closed so the looters can't get to the stores.
 
Meanwhile, back in bigly orange MAGAland ...

'President Donald Trump on Wednesday could be heard telling a victim of Hurricane Florence to “have a good time.” Trump made the remark while handing out meals to hurricane victims in New Bern, North Carolina.'

Drive through disaster relief - how very murican.

Although those victims are clearly having it tough, driving around in their big(ly) cars. Obviously in a state of shock and thus too out of it to walk. If only they'd prepared like someone we know has advised.

I've mislaid my glove puppets, so here goes.

1. Folk living on the breadline with nothing to spare for hoarding.
2. Hurricane comes along and trashes the place. Folk who previously had nothing to spare for hoarding now have nothing to live off.
3. Folk struggle back to previous subsistence existence.
4. Other hurricane comes along and trashes the place. Again.
6. Repeat every couple of years.

How do people who have nothing excess save anything when what little they have gets regularly taken off them?

Unlike you I have family in North Carolina. My wife has friends that have been effected. They were told to prepare and many of them did. So unless you have anything else to add why don't you take a moment to pull your head out of your ass.

Imported socialism & welfare strangled Puerto Rico

Purto Rico while technically a US possession, has managed to screw themselves for years. They get lots of welfare money and piss it away. Hence the lack of sympathy for an island that by all rights should just become an Independent Country. Maybe you folks would like a new island possession??

Quick and easy question to answer.

North, South Carolina get storms, or as you like to call them hurricanes, as do many other southern states , as they have done for millennia. Why have the last 50 years of Americans built their houses of wood and plastic? Is it like ... OK it’s cheap but will fail at a force three fart?


Why not build with something that can take a storm , save a load of cash and not need FEMA to wipe your arrse?
 
This would be a very very interesting engineering project - Trump is suggesting constructing a wall across the Sahara desert to umm solve the immigration issue.
There used to be quite an effective migrant barrier in the Sahara before Clinton and Obama wrecked it, it was called Libya.

Builders do everything cheaply now, it is all about the bottom line. If you built a proper house how many people could afford to live on the beach these days? Maybe half of the current beach front population. Cheap housing ensures people will flock to the area, but costs will be cut. As long as the home is insured you will be given a check to rebuild........

Everybody wants FEMA money because it is a given, and all states pay into it.

I think Ghadaffi had a vote in wrecking that too...

That sad, I am looking forward to this being published,

Nope. They mostly went though Morocco to Ceuta, via Algeria or the old favorite of a pirogue from Casamance province in Senegal to the Canaries.
The overland Algeria route was quite pricey as until 2006, they preferred to use it to ship cocaine - better value for money.

Remember all this?
The migration crisis in the Canary Islands

Think of the fall of Ghadafi as the start of the "Lidl" approach to migrant shipping, the new revenue for the region when Colombia started shipping direct to europe/cutting out the copious middle men
