Good plan. However I read the story of someone who used to create the flood plan maps for FEMA, and it was basically people with local knowledge making rough guesstimates.

He did acknowledge that things are probable better these days, but he didn't instill a lot faith in them.

Yes, and they change with construction. I remember San Antonio's last "500 year flood", and it resulted in the city deciding to condemn a bunch of houses in an area that had never flooded before and creating a new "flood plain" park because it was clear that build up of a new development had changed the way the area flooded. They also fined and sued the developer who had created the issue.

But that is what we do here. Condemn and make parks where there is no other solution. Other areas got improved drainage and wider culverts.

I remember a guy I knew spent a lot of money backfilling a creek on his land in the North Side and when the street flooded, the city came in and yelled at him for causing the flooding, fined the fuck out of him, and removed all his backfill.

No messing with even small waterways or wetlands here without extensive study and permits.

Unless you're a beaver.

But then you run the risk of being shot, trapped, or both, depending on how much you inconvenienced the local humans.

The veto of the coal ash commission is not as nefarious as it seems. The state already has the environmental management commission which is ultimately our boss and the majority of the appointees are from the governor, so the emc through us is an executive perogative. The Republican legislature is all about power grabs and tried to setup this separate commission where they could stack it and have full control over this process. Now of course they're all republicans so not much was going to happen anyway.

Quote:
Already on Saturday morning on CNN, Republican pundits were trotting out another well-worn lie—that Social Security was going broke and would not be there for today’s youths without drastic measures. (That lie follows their tax cut sales pitch, saying it will bring trickle-down prosperity for all. That line was used in the 1986 federal tax cut, which was followed by decades of wage stagnation).

The Republicans intentionally mislabel Social Security as an entitlement program. In fact, it is an earned benefit program where workers contribute via payroll deductions. It cannot spend money it has not collected under federal law. In the early 2030s, the large size of Baby Boom generation will prompt roughly a 20 percent cut in benefits unless the Congress enacts a revenue measure—such increasing the wealthy’s tax contribution to the program. Now, only the first $120,000 or so of income is taxed for Social Security.
Good job to all the rust and bible belt stiffs who got Trump and majorities of Republicans in both houses of congress elected. They literally don't know which side they're on. Such an own goal.
