Using my phone as a hot spot but that doesn't help the house. Should be temporary and compared to what so many more people are probably going through we are blessed.

      That is why Biden should cuck him at PCs all over Florida. It won't change much but don't let Ronny get much credit steal the spotlight.

        Florida Republican Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott urged Senate leaders for money to rebuild state after Hurricane Ian.

        Then when the vote came, ⁦@SenRickScott⁩ voted against the funds and ⁦@marcorubio⁩ didn’t show up for the vote.
        Not only that but from the article:

        The Democratic-led House followed up Friday with its approval, 230-201. The measure next goes to President Joe Biden’s desk to be signed into law. Republicans overwhelmingly opposed the measure.

        Florida Democratic Party Chair Manny Diaz blasted Florida Republican House members — all of whom voted against the stopgap spending measure to help storm victims — for not supporting Floridians.

        “The same week that Hurricane Ian brought so much chaos and destruction to Florida, not a single Florida Republican cared enough to vote in favor of Hurricane relief for the people in their own state hit hardest by the storm," he said. "That is a level of callous indifference and political opportunism that boggles the mind."
        But you can bet they will take credit...

          Wow.

          Just wow.

          I would like to have an idea how they expect Florida to be rebuilt, as I don't see a significant input from insurance companies. More like a bunch of bankruptcies so they don't have to pay out.

          • Hey look, Florida republicans also think it's a bad idea to send money to Florida.

            First compelling argument I've seen to actually send money there.

                For sure. It takes serious money to live in some of those places. Aside from personal safety issues, most will be fine. Puerto Rican storm victims, on the other hand . , , ,

                    This planned community just northeast of Ft Myers never lost power during the storm and suffered only minimal damage. Planned/designed as a community with climate change in mind. 100% solar powered, buried all power lines, designed roads to funnel water away from homes, strict building codes with hurricanes in mind, etc.

                      I don't recall a tropical storm ever heading up Central America like this although I suspect it has happened before.

                        In 2020 alone, 2 Category 4 storms made landfall in Nicaragua within 10 days of each other.

                          I know that. I meant the fact that this one is shown following that land as it heads about west-northwest.
