If someone builds or buys a house in a flood zone, tornado alley, New Orleans, or any other such meteorologically disadvantageous locale and it is consequently destroyed should the taxpayer be liable for fixing it?
Yes if we allow them to build there.
That is what insurance is for.
Don't forget earthquake prone areas. Or drought and blizzards for farmers. Well crap, we're all screwed. Let's just kill each other off.
I believe it's called insurance for a reason.
Yes that's called helping each other but every single house that's built in one of those places is destroyed. I live in the Cenami zone. If I should be trapped in my house I would definitely DO NOT want someone risking their life to rescue me.
Help shouldn't come at the point of a gun. Habitat for Humanity is help. Volunteers are help.
Your system creates monstrosities like the Road Home Program in New Orleans that didn't help anyone except some politically connected business folks.
Of course it's not all good nor is it all bad.
More towards all bad
I have a problem with house right on the ocean. Some have been destroyed several times and rebuilt with your dollar.
Which is absurd
Here you're not allowed to build on the ocean. We are 2 miles inland.
Tops! That's the way it should be. When the sea is lapping on your front door on a nice day that's a problem! But it prime property here on the east coast. But Sandy was a real bad event!
Felt so bad for everybody when that happened. Up the coast you'll see people that have their houses built way out and I think of the song my kids thing in Sunday school. Foolish is the man that builds his house on sand.
YES,or: If they survive they should be put in chains & put on display as an example of what type of humans are unacceptable. The only tax money spent to rehouse them would be like a traveling freak show of losers. (Home losers)
or they knew the risks and its on them. Why is it on me?
Because if something bad damaged you & it was your fault, helping you recover, is why we are human. Plus we don't like looking at hardship cases, pain & suffering is getting really old already. Try something new,when you know better, you do better.
I don't want your help and don't feel I owe anyone else any help.
Why won't you help someone whose house burns down in Tijuana?
And don't disguise crime and theft as charity. That's dishonest.
It's not about you or what you want. You have to learn to live amongst us. Your not different or special.
What happened to live and let live
This user is currently being ignored
for fucks sake
I don't have a home.
Tornado alley can't apply, that's about 20 whole states. If it's a recurring area of disasters it should all be rebuilt with private insurance.
What if you can't get coverage
That would be a problem but I'm sure you can. Homes & business' on the beach in MS that were destroyed in Hurricane Katrina that rebuilt can still get insurance. It's very expensive though.
If you can't get coverage that's a sign
Where I am in CA we're always on fire. People can rebuild but the can't or won't pay for the separate fire insurance again. Same w/earthquake insurance. If you own a condo you can't get ins. Unless every unit does. It's a one time use for sure.
And how is any of that the problem of anyone but the homeowner?
Rebel76 it's not your problem. No one is going to force you to help. You shouldn't care if the majority of other people will help because they really,want to. Stop trying to dictate your morals.You can't control people just because you think you know
What's best for them.let them decide
Woa whoa whoa whoa whoa, it's YOUR system that thrives on force and extortion, not mine. YOU dictate morals, not me.
Well it sure looks different when you are the one determined to force your agenda. Live and let live.
Live and let live IS my agenda. You're the one that loves coercive govt.
I don't have a separate system from you
Exactly. Your system forces me to be part of it
Oh rebel no. Just because the system was established without your input-AKA no one asked you or if they had asked you; you would of done it differently. Or you still should have a choice when that chance is gone. Doesn't mean it's being forced on you
It means: here is what has been provided for you. Look at it like your accepted as you are. When you know better, then you can do better
That's called coercion
No rebel things were done by people before you. Not just to spite you.Like I said when you know better then you can do better. That's all anyone does.I hope whatever you do is better for all.You still have to live w\them it's easier if they're happy.
I do know better. Minarchy. Now.
No that would be their home insurance company
You have to have home insurance.Then you can buy a separate insurance for disaster, it's not always mandatory. A lot of people will only get the required. Knowing that if tragedy struck they would get helped anyway.
omg... one of my biggest peeves
I think it's time to consider whether such areas should be inhabited.
Flood areas that is, not tornado alleys.
No, that's what cash/disaster insurance is for.
