The Electric Commentary

Maybe if FEMA hadn't spent quite so much time composing children's rap songs...

This is just beyond belief:

Disaster, it can happen anywhere, But we've got a few tips, so you can be prepared. For floods, tornadoes, or even a 'quake You've got to be ready, so your heart don't break.
Disaster prep is your responsibility.
And mitigation is important to our agency.

People helping people is what we do.
And FEMA is there to help see you through.
When disaster strikes, we are at our best.
But we're ready all the time, 'cause disasters don't rest.

Nick Gillespie says it best:

The song is online at FEMA's "kidz" site here; audio here. Latest version of RealPlayer--and an incredibly dark sense of humor--required to listen.


  • That rap is insane. "Mitigation is important to our agency?" I mean, come on.

  • Apologies in advance for lame lyrics & lack of rhythm...

    Disaster, it can happen anywhere,
    depending on where, we may not care.
    An earthquake just shook LA to a pile of sticks?
    It will have to wait, we've got a luncheon at six.
    Because we lack accountability,
    disaster prep is your responsibility.

    Creating false assurances is what we do,
    'cause if anything actually happens... you're screwed.
    When disaster looms, don't look at us,
    your best hope is to steal a bus.
