Need a serious thread on Hurricane Fuck You Texas.

Current status - http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/27/us/texas-harvey-latest/index.html

Future possible status - http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/27/us/harvey-landfall/index.html

This is an interesting article. Have to fact check it, but it seems like a conflict of local and state officials resulted in some confusion. Again, unverified. Any Texanites wanna comment?

I'll say that some of the most despicable liberals are enjoying the suffering because 16% of Texans voted Trump compared to the 15% in their state.

But otherwise, shits bad. Second to Katrina bad.

Simply being glad these people are getting punished by an act of god is sociopathic, but It's hard not to feel a bit of schadenfreude when the people who voted for someone who campaigned on cutting things like FEMA, healthcare, and welfare believing it would hurt everyone else more, are going to be affected as much as anyone.

I feel it when I hear about old fuckers in my state crying about hospital bills after they reelected a fucker who refused federal medicaid funding (which did not remove the mandates, just the reimbursement for hospitals).

First, Houston is one of the cities getting hit the hardest and it went solidly for Clinton. IIRC the bulk of Clinton's support came from the districts getting hit the hardest.

Second, wake out of this delusion that state politicians are an accurate representation of people's will. Texas is gerrymandered to shit for the GOP, and the DNC can't into elections for shit. Smug liberals blaming voters for their politicians is morally repugnant and self defeating as resentment of liberals is 90% of GOP strategy.

Look, you can either masturbate your smug elitism while the GOP both rapes red states into abject poverty and misery and increases their majority in congress. Or you can show some fucking solidarity with your fellow Americans like a decent human being.

people tend only to scrutinize details like that when the story being told doesn't jive with their narrative. since in this case it reinforces their racist views, they just kinda took it to heart at a glance and left it as is.

wouldn't be the first time we've seen this happen on /n/ or /pol/, especially from immigrants bringing thought-stopping may mays like in that pic. they find something that they think will irk the opposition (fact checking is irrelevant - the main factor that matters is how much they think it will "trigger" others) and dump it. the end.

Oh, I have no doubt a lot of states have done this kind of stupid shit.

Apparently the rough estimates of residential damage...just residential property damage, is around $380 billion for the Houston metro area. The GDP of that same area is $471 billion a year.

Wow. I mean, imagine almost losing an entire year's worth of economic activity in a week. That is kind of what happened. And who knows what the total hit to the area's GDP will be.

Pretty mind boggling when you get into these numbers.

Isn't Houston filled with Katrina victims still? A lot of whom just never moved back because they had nothing to move to. Or the resources to move. Moving is pricey. First-last-deposit, etc.

Plus, the insurance payouts will get fucky. With Katrina they pulled a lot of shenanigans. You could have one half of a DUPLEX get classed as "flood damage," and the other half as "storm damage," based on which owner had what insurance. With, of course, the final decision being based on whatever was cheapest for the insurance company.

This will keep happening and it will keep getting worse. Pretty soon we will have our own refugee crisis but it will just be from the lower parts of the US and our current system and political climate is not prepared to handle it humanely.

Also while Houston is bad, it's small time compared to what's going on in Bangladesh and SE Asia. The future will be the US just starting to understand what a real crisis is while the rest of the world is in full mass death mode. And it's not like we don't have the means to prevent or appropriately respond to it. It's just that the societal structures in place are more likely to bunker down and watch everyone else and even our own die, than do what is necessary to save lives.
