I can't ever win with you. I'm done.

You don't like to acknowledge other people's truths. You don't own property so you have not experienced it. Giving money is great. Volunteering is admirable. But when you own a home there is a certain expectation/hope/desire that it will at a minimum maintain its value, and hopefully increase in value. When the government decides to move people in who have no skin in the game, it's usually disastrous for the homeowners. I don't know why people have a hard time admitting that.

I expect this migration will be different than the Katrina migration. Many of the Katrina evacuees came from poverty and unemployment. They didn't have much in New Orleans and they lost what little they had.

Most Harvey evacuees will probably be Houston homeowners whose home was a total loss and whose place of employment went out of business. We probably won't see them as significantly different from other folks who migrate here for job reasons.
