The Competency Crisis

Our inland about a mile and in the FEMA “no flood” zone (10’ above sea level, we’re around 12) coastal SWFL home, which Ian’s eye went over, went up to $9300 on this year’s quote, 3 or 4 times what it was 6 years ago. Our agent found another company that’s $6K today, but I haven’t seen the quote yet to compare.

Remember the fuss over New Orleans, Katrina, and how Bush didn’t respond quick enough? Biden’s FEMA’s response to red state Florida, based on casual observation since we didn’t qualify or need them, looked to be mostly how they could screw over DeSantis

More insurance policies being cancelled because… climate change

Just another trivial example of how messed up our world has become thanks to the drive for “efficiency”.

The hospital I use has become part of a regional chain, which supposedly benefits the patient by allowing for cost-saving efficiencies. Six months ago, I had a routine electrocardiogram; the bill arrived today. Fortunately I am still alive and am here to pay the bill, but that is not always true of a hospital’s clientele.

Most businesses which ran half-a-year behind on billing for their receivables would not stay in business for long. But that was then, and now we have the new normal … for as long as it manages to stagger on.

A patient is paying the hospital. Isn’t that illegal under Obama care?

Secret Service moved from Treasury to Homeland Security in 2003.

I bet this is when the Secret Service became dysfunctional and less competent, a 20 year crisis of competence

Add: an empire of lies!

Homeland Security just another really bad George Bush idea. We have issues coordinating between all the various intelligence and law enforcement areas. I got an idea, let’s create another one. That will fix it.
