BossLady- You have a good point. A lot of people live in places that
could flood. I live a mile from a river. It would have to dump like 6 feet of rain for my house to flood, but it could. The difference is, if it did flood, I would blame no one but myself. I would never just expect fed/state/local government programs to bail me out. It is like all of the people in Florida who live right there on the coast. If you live somewhere that nature gets angry at, don't expect people to keep feeling bad for you. Your house ends up washed out to see. Oops! MOVE! Don't stand there in front of a news camera whining, "Duurrr we never knew this could happen to us derpa derpa". Because you wanted a nice view of the Gulf, we now all have to pay for it in one form or another. (State backed underwriters are a whole 'nother rant) How many billions of dollars were spent on NO? ...and now, just seven years later it is flooding again. Albeit a lesser scale. What is the definition of insanity? /rant
I don't think of myself as a "has been", but rather, "retired loser".
