Trump had no such retribution for Texas, which does everything possible to avoid zoning floodplains.  Indeed, they are rebuilding in the same areas FEMA bailed them out of.  But Trump loves Texas, so more FEMA for Texas!

I'm leaving aside the particular details of the CA fires because I want to highlight Trump's scrupulous avoidance of process and policy.  But if it would help, I can cite how the fires were burning on federal, not state, lands, how the high winds were spreading them even across 10-lane highways, and how one of the two major fires was in a suburban area with no significant forest canopy.  Would that help?

But we are going to ignore the environmental laws that put aside common sense and allows for tragedies like this to happen.  Heck, I can recall when they denied the firefighters from pulling water out of a reservoir because of an endangered fish.   Cheesy
  

"Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments."

Just keep shoveling the money! If a state was authorized more monies than they deserve with a republican administration in Washington, it would never be enough! If the Democrats were running the show, I'd imaging that the effected areas would get less than bread crumbs, but their constituency is so dependent on them that they would be grateful.

Seems a reasonable response to the sucking black hole of a state it is, California.


California: fifth largest global economy, subsidises your sorry ass flyover state.

The environmental laws are not what turned these fires into disasters, as someone else linked earlier in this thread.  But putting that aside, you are avoiding the naked partisan-driven inconsistency.

Trump wants to punish CA by withholding disaster funds, because in his mind (not driven by policy debate, science, or anything) CA was foolish.  Trump wants to help TX by fully sponsoring disaster funds because in his mind (ignoring how zoning laws made the flood damage far worse) TX deserves as much help as we can give.

Then what do they need money from the federal government for?

They should be looking to secede. They can unburden themselves from the flyover states and become a true shining light of wealthy progressivism.

We are talking about this government, aren't we?  If we were any other kind of government like China or NK, we would not even be having this discussion because you would not even be allowed to own a gun.
