Deadeye dicks

As we mark the year since our hurricanes began in earnest, the accuracy of FEMA's purposive activity is still capable of making news. The agency, it is reported,
used hurricane aid money to pay funeral expenses for at least 203 Floridians whose deaths were not caused by last year's storms, the state's coroners have concluded.

The deaths include a Palm Beach Gardens millionaire recovering from heart surgery who died two days before Hurricane Frances; a Miami baby not yet born when the storm arrived; and a Port Charlotte man who died of cirrhosis and heart failure five months after Hurricane Charley.

In two other cases, coroners could find no record of the people dying.
"Good afternoon. I'm quite sure I'm dead. May I have please some money?"

Ten people were not in Florida at the time of their deaths, including Brant Moskowicz, 40, of Boca Raton. He died in a head-on collision Sept. 7 in Ashburn, Ga., when the driver of a Ford Ranger crossed a median and hit his Nissan Altima, according to traffic reports.

Indeed a great hurricane damaged our residence where conscience used to reside. There is no more shame in stealing because we are standing knee deep in shit which smells far worse than our rotten life. Into this world I will bring a child and see it get smothered with shit and it will partake in the great shit carnival of stealing and then for sure it will blame someone else.

Ideals are dead. Children are shaped in the image of the image. My child will be shaped by the Image shaping images.

Cool Blog, I never really thought about it that way.

I have a Hurricane Katrina blog. It pretty much covers hurricane related stuff.

Thank you - and keep up the thoughts!

I don't know what this website is all about. All I know is Brant Moskowicz was killed due to the evacuation from hurricane Frances. How do I know because I am his wife! I was in the car when he died! We left florida, so we would be "safe" from the hurricane. We drove 8 hours until we found a vacancy at a hotel which happened to be in Georgia. A place were many floridians fleed too because of the evacuation. When we got the all clear...we headed home. At 12:00 in the afternoon an idiot fell asleep at the wheel and hit our car head on on I-75! Killed Brant Moskowicz almost killing me and our daughter! Did you know most deaths occur after the hurricanes pass? How about all those people from Katrina who lived for days after the hurricane passed and only died because they didn't have food or water???? You people are IDIOTS! I'm so sick of this shit!

Kia, Kombinat, Tom Matrullo- Your idiots! Don't believe everything you read -especially from such a reliable source like the Florida Sun Sentinel! Believe me when I say FEMA checks and rechecks all claims especially from a death. In fact they did a better job checking the facts surrounding Brant Moskowicz's death than the stupid reporter writing this work of fiction! There's no free lunch, no one especially FEMA is giving money away for nothing. And if you think they are you are stupider than I already think you are. WAKE UP!
