FEMA sold disaster shelters as 'Frankenstorm' gathered strengthIn all, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has sold nearly 900 of the prefabricated temporary homes - none more than four years old and most used only once - since 2009, according to the newspaper's analysis of federal surplus property auctions.The agency even sold two trailers on Oct. 22, the same day the National Weather Service upgraded a tropical depression and christened it Sandy. Forecasters began warning the same day of a possible super-storm making landfall somewhere in North Carolina or further north in heavily populated areas of the Eastern Seaboard as far as Maine.http://washingtonexaminer.com/fema-sold-shelters-as-frankens...---Let's see..they paid top dollar to buy them in a hurry, kept them in inventory for just such a disaster as Sandy, but sold them six months before to put a few bucks back in some executives spending account so they could all go to Las Vegas and party on?I think I got the picture.Hundreds of millions of your tax dollars 'carefully spent' by the government ...then given away in sales for pennies on the dollar....then totally unprepared having sold 900 housing units a few months before, and rushing out to buy another 1000 housing units with more borrowed Chinese dollars adding to the debt!t.
