First off, yeah, development in Houston ran roughshod over maintaining watersheds and wetlands.
Second, it's serious as fuck down here, even now, I'm waiting for the Brazos River to crest, and hope it doesn't flood my area.
Third, anybody here using this as some kind of fucking soapbox for pro Trump/anti Trump or whatever can fuck right off.

Some other shit: 500K cars will need to be replaced. Huge numbers of homes will need remediation, I don't even know how many. Billions of dollars in infrastructure repairs will be needed. Between FEMA and insurance companies, there isn't going to be anybody getting a free house upgrade here.

You can bet there are truckloads of illegals here to start getting the work done. Also, I imagine I am going to be putting in a lot of volunteer hours helping folks get back into their homes. There is an army of people down here ready to volunteer and help
If ever there was a time & place for some kind of amnesty (maybe just temporary), this is it.

From a long distance away it looks like a well run, multi-racial, multi-ethnic effort that's inspirational in the midst of the chaos and tragedy.
Bullshit. The reconstruction would be done better and faster with non-illegal gouging contractors. Better still all union.

Shaf, would a blow-up inflatable sex doll be helpful right now?
