Will they?

I plan on standing outside in front of a camera saying "where's the help. We need help. The help should be here by now." Then I shall throw down the free MRE and water bottle and demand coke and McDonalds.

Not debit cards, but Shiner, Ziegen, and Lone Star beers mostly.

The Aggies will loot the sheep population.

Why would they? Texans are generally self-sufficient and take care of their own.

I don't know that many folks from Texas, but the ones I do know aren't the type of people who sit around waiting for handouts. Based on what I've seen lately from Katrina, Texans are usually the ones giving the handouts...

If I didn't live here in the Granite state I'd live in Texas-God bless 'em.

I wonder if they started to balme the White House for the long lines for gas and the traffic jams yet.

I only know a few Texans, but the ones I've met are not only self-sufficient but also shrewd businessmen.

So, not only will they be fine on their own, they'll find a way to pipe any floodwater to Arizona and sell it.

Texas will be fine. They're not helpless or stupid like in Louisana.

In 2000, Texas had a population of 20,851,820 in 7,393,354 housholds and had 128,289 families receiving welfare. That is 1.74% of all Texas households receiving welfare. Louisiana had a population of 4,468,976 in 1,656,053 households and 25,521 familes on welfare. That is 1.54% of all households receiving welfare. The percentage of familes on welfare is 13% HIGHER in Texas than in Louisiana.

Nice try, but wrong.

Welfare is but a single form of gov assistance. Off the top of my head there is SSI, section 8 housing, WIC, and foodstamps-just to name a few.

Lets look at SSI for example. here are the stats as of Dec 2004:

LA: 169,547 recipients / 4,496,334 population = 3.8% of total population receiving SSI

TX: 472,563 recipients / 22,118,509 population = 2.1% of total population receiving SSI

All Texans aren't the responsible types that some of you are dreaming about. There are plenty of "urban" Texans that live off of the government tit that will be looking for their free money. Not as many as N.O. had, but a significant amount.

Except SSI is for people with some type of physical disability. Welfare, on the other hand, is for those too LAZY to work. Nice apples-to-oranges comparison.

Seriously, there are a lot of poor people in the areas this hurricane is going to hit. I am sure they will be handing them out to alot of folks down there. I was born in Galveston, do I get one?

Texas will not be immune to havinga segment of the population look for freebies; thats human nature, and theres nothing magical about people who simply happen to be from Texas.Besides, people in NOLA didn't "demand" the cards; they were an experiment by relief agencies in trying to get relief funding to those in need more efficiently.

Riiiight

Do you know how easy it is to get a Doc to sign off on your so-called "permanent disability"? SSI is overrun with fraud and pretend injured.

If you think that Texas consists solely primarilymostly of upstanding folks you are right. Texas however has a very large contingent of shiftless, no good, egg sucking ,human sloths who's sole function in life is living off the government taxpayers tit. There is a whole big bunch of folks just like the shit that came from N.O.. To believe otherwise is living in denial.

We'll buy it too, as long as it's high-pressure enough to fend off the snowbirds.

Curious but what is the difference (if there is one) between unemployment and welfare? I recieved 3 months of unemployment while looking for my current job. Does that make me too lazy to work?

The welfare figures I used were the ACF programs.

Unemployment is an insurance program, not welfare.

Unfortunately living in an urban area I see a lot of those types, especially having worked at a Wal-Mart for seven months. At the bank I worked at, a generous amount of women only deposited checks from child support and had no other source of income... I might try that sometime, get knocked up and make my "baby daddy" responsible for it

SSI considers alcoholism and drug addiction a diability.
