@Barbiestylez:  Do you mean the Federal Emergency Management Agency?

The Federal Emergency Management Agency?

I didn’t know it was controversial?

Well, not being familiar with any conspiracies regarding FEMA, I googled it and the first couple names that appeared were Alex Jones and Glen Beck.  So yeah…. anything along those lines just lost any credibility with me.

What did your FI say?

Could you elaborate on the conspiracy theories about it?  I know that Katrina was completely mishandled, but I don’t believe anyone was purposefully trying to hurt people.  I live in NYC and Sandy was dealt with very well in my opinion.  I’m not really sure what you’re asking…

@Barbiestylez:  I actually have had an incredibly busy few days, and I’ve heard nothing at all about this. Given that, I’m unable to comment.

FEMA. Is way too beaurocratic and inept to conspire against anyone. They couldn’t conspire to paint fire trucks red if they tried. The conspiracy theories are pretty nutty.

@TGold:  I thought it was going to have something to do with the disastrous response to Katrina too, but…apparently there are people who believe the federal government, under the leadership of FEMA, is building concentration camps to detain American citizens.

@Barbiestylez:  I am not a proponent of conspiracy theories myself, but my FI thinks the camps are shady as well. I’m not well-educated enough on it to argue for or against that opinion though. I just don’t understand why there is any sort of secrecy surrounding them if they aren’t shady. And I just don’t trust the gov in general.

@Barbiestylez:  if he’s talking about a facility near Lima, OH, that’s a state prisn that’s been there since the 1980’s that, for some unknown reason (moon beams maybe) a radical fringe group thinks is a new FEMA facility.
