With all the bad rap the F.E.M.A. guys are getting these days, I
just thought I'd throw my two-cents worth down on paper.
In 2012 (if my memory serves correctly) my store and living
quarters were beyond my repair from a storm. The
storm made a whole roof (and ceiling) fall into the one-story
business/home and much property was ruined by the water flowing in
through all the doors around the building. I, to this
day, still have the videos of the live damages; sad
enough that I don't often look at them anymore. Black and
other molds set in, mildew began to affect my health, (mostly)
The means to survival and my mainstay completely destroyed and much
was in irreparable state.
Before I relate what the government did, let me first paint the
picture for you in a few words: I've not shown myself
as a proponent for this neo-corporate/polity in quite some time
(for reasons that not be delved into right now).
Now for the heart-felt news. That same government that

that surely nothing would come of the inspection.
What really broke me was when I opened the mail to find a

Thanks to our polity for this saving grace. And if they
should come and take for recompense that amount from my personal
affects this day, I'd have no hard feelings whatsoever....it's the

should decide to take more than what is owed, then all the more for
the next bloke that should be caught unawares by a freak storm that
changes entire existences.
