“FEMA fraud paid for football, vacations and Erotica”

Why are people so surprised that this happened? I was listening to Rush Limbaugh’s show today and though I am not in agreement with a lot of things he says, he actually made me laugh out loud with his comments – he was 100% dead on. He asserted that the “drive by media” would have cruicified FEMA if they had not acted quickly in doling out the money. Anderson Cooper would be ranting and Jessie Jackson panting. My verbiage – but Rush made the point.

FEMA was crucified while we all avidly watched thousands of Black men, women and children in front of the Super Dome and Convention center begging for water and food; basically making Post Katrina New Orleans look like a third world country with FEMA and Homeland Security playing the roles of heinous dictators responsible for their oppression.

FEMA indiscriminately giving money certainly was an act attempting to band aid a gunshot wound to the head. Everyone in the world looked at the unfolding situation and felt a sense of guilt which led to overcompensation. The American tax payer bears the ultimate responsibility and burden for all the mistakes made.

Why were people so surprised this happened? I am going to ask that question again. As a long time New Orleans resident, how many times have I gone into a grocery store and wondered about the person ahead of me in line paying for the best cut of meat, the best of all produce and paying with a state supplied debit card? Then commented about the fact that same person was driving an expensive car – with an even more expensive deafening bass stereo?

Subsidized housing, food and welfare checks have created a hugely entitlement oriented class of people in New Orleans. I feel that if a person is smart enough to figure out how to sell drugs and/or get all the free amenities supplied by the State and Federal Government they are smart enough to get out of the system and become a productive member of society.

With one of the highest per capita murder and crime rates in the Nation with a dysfunctional proportion of rich to poor it was a foregone conclusion that there were going be fraudulent acts. Why would anyone ever assume that people who have worked the system for decades and generations would not take advantage of FEMA? I suppose that I would feel a lot better if FEMA and Home Land Security had not allowed themselves to be taken advantage of. It does not give me much hope for survival if there is major epidemic or act of terrorism. The thought that the poor, ignorant people of New Orleans could take the Federal Government for $1.4 billion is ironic.

“This is an assault on the American taxpayer,” said Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the subcommittee that will conduct the hearing. “Prosecutors from the federal level down should be looking at prosecuting these crimes and putting the criminals who committed them in jail for a long time.”

Mr. McCaul we have all aided and abetted these crimes by allowing our tax dollars to subsidize people who are obviously smarter than the American Government.
