On the local news. Store employees and other evacuees pissed that some are using the cards to buy bling.

Also, in schools apparently Houston gangs and NO gangs getting into conflicts. Nice....

Those people know that even if they waste every dollar given to them that the government is going to be there to help them get back on their feet...so why shouldn't they spend the Red Cross money on luxuries?

If I had one of them cards I would have a brand spanking new S&W 460, maybe also the 500....

No surprise - but it's sad, nevertheless.

Local news here report at least 11 registered sex offenders from NO staying in Austin, plus thousands more parolees in Texas from LA. One of those f*ckers tried to abduct a 14 yr old girl in Dallas and he was arrested. Welcome to Texas you MF'rs let us support your ass whether in jail or in government housing.

If I was a store owner, I'd refuse to accept the card for a luxury item like that. Is there any reason that these stores aren't, aside from being just as greedy as the looters?

There is a reason why some people will always be poor...

Now I understand why they were bitching so much! The slowed government response caused them to miss a sale!

You're completely right. Even though it would be completely immoral and baseless, someone would still do it. Blatantly stolen from another thread:

I knew this shit would happen. These punks have found new Texans to victimize. Using their Red Cross cards to purchase luxury purses and jewels, is just plain bullshit. If I were a store owner, I would refuse to take these cards. It would be like giving a punk my own money to buy stuff from me.

Somehow, this doesn't surprise me one bit.

A business has the right to refuse service to anyone. But they'd be labeled racist if they did.

A) To a store owner, money is money. They are most likely seeing a boom in business.
B) If you sell "bling," odds are you aren't the first to take the moral highground anyway.

Don't hold your breath about that happening in your lifetime.

Once we are able to say what someone really is, it'll be too late.
