    Trump just “stole” over $100 Million from FEMA to pay for Migration Detention Center “beds.” Trump does not have a confirmed FEMA head. No idea if the current acting head is up to the task and knows how to effectively allocate limited resources and manpower. Jeffrey Byard has been a Marine trained to “Adapt, Improvise and Overcome” but can he manage a major disaster with people not well trained, not well equipped, and, perhaps, not so dedicated? Further I read a story saying that FEMA has many posts going unfilled. No doubt inexperienced people will be quickly thrust into situations beyond their knowledge, experience and capability. Some will rise to the occasion, but this is not at all reliable. In bad hurricane seasons Congress usually has to allocate money more than FEMA’s “normal” budget. Now what will happen since Trump “stole” that $100+Million for his ill-advised and ill-managed immigration (torture) program. So, no, I don’t think the country is well prepared to deal with Dorian and the rest of the Hurricane Season which lasts from June 1 to November 30. Democrats are typically more ready willing and able to properly fund and administrate; not so Republicans. When will the Republicans do their job and work on behalf of all Americans? When will the Conservative Think Tanks look beyond the interests of the One Percent?
