We can build them, we have the technology

    The one that Ike didn't flatten.

    Florida building codes jackasses take note. The dude wanted and paid for a house that would take a hit from a Cat 5, and he got one.

    There are "forces of nature", but man wields some "forces" of his own too...if he chooses to apply them. There really is no need for places like FL to have outlandish insurance rates -- we, as a species, obviously CAN build stuff that will take a pretty good direct hit and survive mostly intact. Spending a bit more upfront for quality engineering and construction is really all it takes.

    Wouldn't it be nice to be able to tell the insurance companies to get stuffed and only carry liability/fire/theft kinda stuff which is relatively cheap?

    This made me want to scream a little bit. We don't have to deal with the drama, we can build it right.

    Perhaps that would solve the insurance crisis. It is more apparent that the insurance companies (and the government) are interested more in bankrupting the average person than in their own profits--there would be more profit in low cost insurance for an incident that may happen once in a billion years than in high cost products that insure against incidents that happen once every 10 or 20 years (and then balking when it comes to settling the claims).

    Down with AIG and all those insurance companies that refuse to go along with these ideas and continue selling crap! Down with the government regulators that prevent free market competition that would have improved the quality of the products!
