If people want to live in flood prone zones then they should have to buy insurance to cover it.......not be subsidized by the govt through the Flood Insurance program......it is a subsidy for wealthy people.

The Gov't can't afford to pay FEMA to keep the Flood Insurance Program going.

CUT FUNDING, ABOLISH AND REPEAL THE FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM.

VOTE NO.

I see you snuck up the stairs from the basement and used mommy's computer when she wasn't looking. She isn't going to like it when she finds out.

Better get back down there with your plastic girlfriend. It's safer for you there.

I am 12 years old and I live in my mom's basement. She doesn't like for me to use her computer but I sneak up and use it when she is gone. I really love my blow-up doll. She is so beautiful. I used to claim to be a preacher but someone found out who I really was and told on me. Now I just post here whenever my plastic girlfriend won't let me snuggle with her.
