    Jane, they shouldn’t be deploying at all. Where is the National Guard? Where are the Reserves? Where are the police officers?

    You know who else was a private paramilitary force that was deployed inside national borders?

    this is very scary. The old Chicago model, privatize everything, deregulate, and cut social programs. Is this the plan FEMA has spent the last three years developing?

    Rube, it’s beyond scary. I wonder how it is that I pay taxes to my government to protect me and they in turn return my money to some private company with very little oversight of what that company does with my money instead of my government spending the money on public organizations we already have in place that do the same job.
