An Alabama builder has accused the state Emergency Management Agency of favoring out-of-state manufacturers in the application form tied to a safe room grant program.
Under the program, put in place after tornadoes devastated the state this spring, the federal government will reimburse Alabama property owners for up to 75 percent of the cost of building a safe room to withstand tornadoes, hurricanes or other disasters.

Notice that the stupid Alamaba EMA official said that “after the next disaster” they would change the wording on the safe-room form.
Why wait until the next disaster, AHOLE? Do it now so that you don’t have to fool around with incomplete forms when you need to move on disaster reconstruction.
Somebody needs to be fired, fast.
Obviously, unlike the finely-tuned engine of production that is (what’s left of) our techno-industrial commerce base, no government body has even the most remote concept of what a “cost-benefit analysis” is. Of course, it’s not their money, so what the heck. Why not just build homes out of five-foot thick reinforced concrete with bulletproof windows? Those would be REALLY safe and could probably even survive a category 5 tornado.
I’m so looking forward to my federal grant to completely earthquake-proof my house. I’m asking for 100% so they feel better about themselves and their good works.
