    How about another 10,000 EBT cards for Katrina victims. :D


    All kidding aside, oversight is great. It's why I love seeing the presidency and the house/senate split up with respect to control.

    Most of them ended up being wasted on booze and strippers out near Cape Cod. At least they were good tippers though. Why not tip well, it was our money. :D

    [​IMG]

    According to a Boston Herald report:

    Herald reporters witnessed blatant public drinking at a Falmouth strip mall by Katrina victims living at taxpayer expense at Camp Edwards on Otis Air Force Base. And strippers at Zachary's nightclub in Mashpee, a few miles from the Bourne base, report giving lap dances to several evacuees.

    "They were tipping me $5 a pop,'' said a Zachary's dancer named Angel.
    "I told them I felt bad taking their money. But I still took it.''

    Its a shame they are now homeless and living in exile in their own country. Maybe if our government functioned responsibly and actually built the levees as they were expected to, they wouldn't be where they are now. But we digress...

    aren't we all equally peeved that there are fat cat contractor CEOs drinking martinis and eating lobster on our tax dollar? Or, are we only attacking the black homeless Katrina victims here?

    I thought they got fed money and used it to pay for other things? At any rate, I don't support fed bail outs. I thought the fed should have laughed when Teddy went down to DC asking for billions. Why should other people pay for our crap? Furthermore, people should take care of themselves. Obviously, there are those who can't, and I don't mind helping them, but the scale with which the people in this country put out a hand is upsetting.

    I am, the question is, are you? Why say "black" homeless Katrina victims? Are you implying that all those who suffered katrina's wrath were black, or are you saying that only black katrina victims received wasted federal tax dollars?

    How did you get away with that picture of "The Two People" I would have had the sh!t kicked out of me and the thread would have been locked if I put that up there, I cant even talk about 'black stockings" without the politically correct do-gooders coming after me.

    Real, your skating on thin ice, they (politically correct) are waitng and watching for that one little excuse, then they will pounce, it's what they do, Joe Biden just learned the hard way, he's all done before he even got started and more will follow probably McCain he has a short fuse, he will blow up and say something then they will be all over him.

    The smart ones will IGNORE the whole thing.
