F'ing losers...

I just read that a shitload of money was misappropriated by FEMA to Hurricane Katrina evacuees. I suppose FEMA should have had a better process for providing the people with money, but c' know the media would have just blasted them for "taking too much time" to provide for these people -- who apparently don't have one single, goddamn person in their lives who they could've gone to stay with....that's weird to me.

What's more weird is what these fucking losers spent our tax dollars on - prepare to get angry. Very angry (from Associated Press):

  • The investigative agency (GAO) said it found people lodged in hotels often were paid twice, since FEMA gave them individual rental assistance and paid hotels directly.
  • FEMA paid California hotels $8,000 to house one individual — the same person who received three rental assistance payments for both disasters.
  • FEMA paid an individual $2,358 in rental assistance, while at the same time paying about $8,000 for the same person to stay 70 nights at more than $100 per night in a Hawaii hotel.

Items purchased with the debit cards:

  • an all-inclusive, one-week Caribbean vacation in the Punta Cana resort in the Dominican Republic.
  • five season tickets to New Orleans Saints professional football games.
  • adult erotica products in Houston and "Girls Gone Wild" videos in Santa Monica, Calif.
  • Dom Perignon champagne and other alcoholic beverages in San Antonio.
  • a divorce lawyer's services in Houston.

Nice, huh?? Maybe the next time Minneapolis has a blizzard, heat wave, flood or tornado, the government will give me money for a Hawaiian vacation, where I can attend a football game, drink champagne, order porn and hire an attorney -- all on YOUR dime!! God knows I could use a vacation since I probably don't even have a job in the first place...

Sound like a plan?

The good news is that a lot of these jerks have been identified and hopefully prosecuted.

What a bunch of fucking losers...


  • I know I'm in the minority here but I think every displaced person should have a copy of Girls Gone Wild

  • I have a strong preference for Guys Gone Wild, and own all four DVDs in the series.

    I'd be happy to loan them to any Katrina victims, however.
