FEMA was supposed to cut off payments for hotels, etc. today for Hurricane Katrina refugees. Who here can we put down for opening up their home to take in some of the poor folks who have been evicted from their only place to stay?? Sign up now.

And No, If they have not found a place on their own by now...Tell them to buy a tent.

If I remember what I read all that these poor folks had to do was to ask for an extension, which 20,000 have done and been approved.

The real problem is that these people were barely functional to begin with. They were the ones living off welfare and not working to begin with. So do they really think these people would do anything but sit on their asses and live off the government?

The go getters have gotten jobs and moved on. These losers will still be losers next year as long as we enable them to be lazy and not work.

Polite enough way to put it.... Six months or so of sucking up Gov't $$ (from our pockets, ultimately),
living in a hotel, etc.... WTF have they been doing in the meantime to straighten themselves out.

Might sound like a heartless bastage to some by saying that, but I brought myself back up from the
depths of just about a similar situation a dozen or so years back, so they can't tell me that it cannot
be done.

Not that I give a shit about most of these people, but there was something on Fox News about the several hundred trailers provided by FEMA for these people that are sitting on a giant lot (paying for the storage space of course) unused because the local governments hadnt requested them, or made arraingments for their location, use, or occupants.

As for the hotels and the like, why the hell should they in any way be obligated to house these people - whether or not they're being paid by FEMA?

Your question SHOULD be: "How many here want to financialy support a bunch of folks they don't even know,forever,who have never done anything but live off everybody (by government handouts and larceny) else and reproduce only more copies of themselves."

Now..........isn't that a bit more factual?

FEMA said they were going to stop paying for hotel rooms months ago and 3 months ago offered to get anyone still in a hotel alternative lodging if they wanted it… FEMA trailers, housing in other cities, ect.

So FEMA is not kicking no one out on the street anyone without a place to live now made a choice… anyone that wanted another place to live could have had it by now.

If she's hot, willing to work 10 cents an hour, can cook, clean, and will put out. I'll take three nay four of them. Three can share in the duties of cleaning my crib while I bone the fourth.


And they must pass a health inspection.

FEMA can kiss my big harry A..............
They can put trash into hotels give them money and hold their hands. But when a Tornado hit my area and damaged my home, we did not ask for those things just a little help putting things back together and getting on with life. What did the wonderful folks at FEMA do, handed me a stack of material to read, told me I make too much money, and since I have insurance no help is availible for me.
Now we just had a Tornado, my roof is damaged, I am missing windows, I have cornstalks sticking into the Alum. siding. Do I have time to read the stack of outdated bullshit you gave me! Hell I cpould not get a chainsaw from the pukes, It took us three weeks just to clear the trees for the yard.
As to the scum sitting on their asses in the hotels kick them out on their ass.

Funny thing about the FEMA complaints. When Katrina hit Mobile (AL) Uncle Sugar came in and reimbursed everyone the cost of the generators we had to buy. I mean, they bought us generators. Now me, I had a Honda generator already and didn't get any money, but if I went out and bought one (and didn't need it) FEMA would have reimbursed me the cost.

I guess I'm just too responsible, honorable, truthful and honest to take advantage of the tax payers (pats self on back).

Not many wanted to come here, but the 40 or 50 that did come to the immediate area have settled in fine most are working and it looks like most will be staying.

One side of me says kick them to the curb, the other says shit help them out they are fellow americans and we spend billions helping feed cloth shelter foreign people after they have natural disastors. I say we cut some foreign add help these people out with a program that actually helps them with permanent housing,not this throw money away hotel crap and make them pay a small pprtion of the rent, like section 8 housing. And if they can't make an effort to do that, they hit the street.

They can go baqk to public housing. Even if they worked at McDs at minimun wage they could have saved alot of money living in a hotel rent free.

That is not the problem the problem is they do not want to go where FEMA has the assets to house them.
