Hat tip: IFOC.

Our money is being well spent. "refugee's" of Katrina are using it to rebuild their lives, we should give until it hurts."

Yea, sure. Intuitively I knew this.

"After being flown here for free back in September, Johnson’s been at the
Holiday Inn since Super Bowl Sunday. On April 21, the hotel served Johnson with three notices of occupancy termination, saying that it would begin court
proceedings if he wasn’t out by May 9. He wasn’t, so it did. If the court boots
him, Johnson could end up in one of the city’s homeless shelters. He’s been
broke for over a month now. fema sent him $9,000 in housing aid, but he spent it all on booze, cigarettes, some clothes, and food—partying, mostly. “I spent my money just the way I wanted, and I think [fema] should send me some more,” he says. But it won’t. Johnson’s caseworker says fema offered to buy him a ticket home to New Orleans in February, but he didn’t take it. fema won’t now. So he’s stuck, at least until the Holiday Inn pays him to leave."

Remember, at some point we have to stop the insanity. Lets go back to the days when you didnt get handouts, you got hand ups, with strings attached.

sheesh... imagine, he is still pushing for another 1200 party.
