Default Very Interesting!

When folks get continual handouts, they have no incentive
to change. It would be great if only those who really are in need got the help, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Can't vouch for the 100% accuracy of this item.

This past weekend, FEMA and the city of Austin, along with
the Texas Workforce Commission set up a job training/hiring/
interview/job fair for all the Katrina FEMA evacuees in the
Austin area, to be held at the ACC campus on Webberville
Road in East Austin. Several of the evacuees said they had
no transportation to get from the apartment complexes. So
the city of Austin/FEMA/TWC set up transportation for each
of them to ensure they would be able to partake of the benefit
of job searching. The transportation consisted of nine buses
and vans, to run from four locations in Round Rock, and five
locations in Austin, in continuing shuttles back and forth to
the campus to ensure that the hundreds of people looking for
jobs would be transported in comfort. The vehicles were
brought to their residences; drivers knocked on the doors;
and every effort was made.

At the end of the day, the nine vans and buses had transported
a total of one person. Not one person per bus - one person total.
At the end of the day, none of the Katrina evacuees applied for any
of the jobs. Not one person took employment - NONE TOTAL.

The bill to FEMA was $7,800.00

And yet folks still get on TV claiming that the U.*. Government
"OWES THEM". I say we don't owe them anything - they OWE
us - the tax payers that are 'WORKING PEOPLE' - they owe
what they have been mooching off of the tax payers for almost a
year now. It is obvious that they don't intend to work as long as they
can sponge off of the system. It is time to cut them loose and tell
them the free ride is over !

If it were not for the United States military, there would be no United States of America

Default Check this out

A Dr friend of mine has put up some evacuees in a house of his. They have been there since september of last year. Have not paid a cent. No elec, no, trash , water , or anything. They havent been looking for a job, and all that. We are about to eveict them, even though FEMA is paying there rent. It still doesnt cover the total cost and its begining to get out of control. Sad sad but true. Im kinda shocked by it all.
