Tornado-hit family denied FEMA grant to repair home... because of 'insufficient damage'

Billions to banks and Wallstreet, trillions to wars and "defense" spending, corporate welfare to oil and gas companies...

And there are those wanting individuals seeking government aid to carry no cash or a minimal amount, and require those on welfare to go for drug tests.

We have a serious problem understanding who the enemy in this country is, it's not the poorest and most disadvantaged amongst us.

If you want to attack a group of people for a bad economy, unemployment, stagnating wages, loss of health insurance and war look to those in the top 1%. The true owners and policy makers of this country.

The priorities in this country and becoming a sad display of humanity.

Daily Mail, not even an American news outlet"

Displaced families in tornado-ravaged Alabama are outraged after being denied federal aide to rebuild their flattened homes - due to 'insufficient damage'.

Jefferson County resident Jonathan Stewart said he laughed in shock after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) claimed the house his family lost in the deadly April 27 twister was 'not unsafe to live in'.

The devastating reality is the house is now a concrete slab surrounded by rubble.

"I don't want a nation of thinkers. I want a nation of workers."

-John D. Rockefeller

BUT, let us always remember:

"When our days become dreary with low-hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice." -MLK
