    It doesn't have ANYTHING to do with the election, or politics.

    It's about lawsuits filed by people who were harmed, some seriously, by the formaldehyde that was given off by the materials used in building the trailers.

    You might want to take a peek at the link, occasionally.

    And why not? These people were getting payments before Katrina, during Katrina and ever since so why stop now.
    These things are meant to be temporary housing, not long term residences.
    These structures are also used as construction job-site trailer, temporary school rooms and many other uses. The people that actually work in them and go to school to learn in them don't seem to be having these problems that require long term payments. Just the freeloaders. Go figure.

    I don't know why Fox keeps him and Juan Williams. Ratings I guess. I can't stand them. I change the channel evertime they come on.

    More power to the people bringing the suits! Apparently there are those whose thinking is characterized by "jerking knee syndrom, who think that the only people who should have access to he courts for redress of grievances, wrong, etc. are people they think are "worthy." Such folks grieve the passing of another era when the lives of some persons was judged important while the lives of anyone else was just a matter of paying a small pittance of a "fine." To bad. So sad.

    More handouts for the entitled. It's strange that you hear of these problems from New Orleans refugees, but almost none from the Gulfport or Biloxi Mississippi area which also got a hammering from the hurricane.
    I may be wrong, but I don't think the FEMA trailers were one off production models with formaldehyde problems unique to just them. I haven't heard of a rash of problems from people and companies that buy trailers from these manufacturers for normal day to day use.
    No good deed goes unpunished.
    Rant off and I apologize if I stepped on any toes.
