The Free Ride On The Federal Gravy Train Continues For Katrina Victims

Do you remember about a month ago when I told you that Federal funding from FEMA was going to end for Katrina victims in December. Remember when I predicted that their would be critics crying because these poor people were going to be thrown out on the street for Christmas. Well a federal judge has ordered that FEMA continue to provide free hotel rooms for Katrina evacuees until at least February 7th. In his ruling Judge Stanwood Duvall wrote:

"It is unimaginable what anxiety and misery these erratic and bizarre vacillations by FEMA have caused the victims, all of whom, for at least one point in time, had the very real fear of being without shelter for Christmas."

Anxiety and misery caused by FEMA? Are you kidding me? FEMA -- or, more accurately, you, the American taxpayers have been and currently are paying for 41,000 hotel rooms in 47 states and the District of Columbia. You will find that during their 3 month stay very few evacuees in these hotel rooms have been working to find a job and to become self sufficient. For the most part these are people who lived a lifestyle relying on the dependability of government in New Orleans, and they have just spread their welfare mentality to the rest of the country. So if you ask me, any anxiety or misery that these people are experiencing has been self inflicted due to the poor decisions that they have made through out their life.

And as far as being without shelter for Christmas, yes it is sad, but perhaps they should have thought about that in the 3 months they were living in a hotel room for free. Maybe, they should have been looking for a job or a way to make it on their own.

They will continue to live off the taxpayers until they are forced to get out there and make it on their own and there are plenty of "activists" who will work day and night to make sure that day never arrives.
