Scary information of which I was unaware. I had no idea FEMA had been around since at least 1979 and had such a broad charter beyond disaster relief.
Seems like a pretty severe violation of the authority granted to the national government by the Constitution.
I would have thought by a reading of the U.S. Constitution that all disaster relief would rightly be handled by the states and charitable and volunteer efforts, following the precedent laid down by U.S. Congressman Davy Crockett.
