Katrina Aftermath = Fraud

This was a story from the AP dated April 1st, but it is not an April Fool’s joke.
An Illinois woman mourns her two young daughters, swept to their deaths in Hurricane Katrina’s floodwaters. It’s a tragic and terrifying story. It’s also a lie. An example of the
fraud cases that, by some estimates, involve thousands of people who bilked the federal government and charities out of hundreds of millions of dollars intended to aid storm victims.
The frauds range in value from a few thousand dollars to more than $700,000.
Disaster aid was sent to inmates who applied from prison and to people who claimed property damage and provided addresses of vacant lots or cemeteries,
FEMA had recovered less than 1 percent of some $1 billion investigators claim was fraudulent aid.
The analysis found the government made more home grants than the number of homes in one of every five neighborhoods after Katrina.
My Opinion:
I am so sick and tired of these criminal elements running loose in our society; I say rather than incarcerating them, deport them. We can do better without them. We don’t need the criminality in this country and we should get rid of it. We throw out our garbage everyday, we should throw them out with it. They are nothing but garbage. Its time to clean up our country and make it a beautiful place again.

    Hi M,

    Since my son lives in New Orleans, this is a subject near and dear to my heart. However, from what he tells me, corruption of this nature is expected behavior in that area. They re-elected Nagan after all. I suspect it is the French influence.

    You’re right. I guess it must be the French influence, the Grit.

    Hi GG,

    Good quote. Louisiana is most interesting in its legal system. While the rest of the States base their law on English common law, the Napoleonic Code is the basis for law in the Bayou State. The primary differences are in how civil cases are handled.

    Oh, and thanks for making it “the Grit.” Most leave don’t notice.

    New Orleanian here. Actually France has given the city more moral support than our own government. So keep up with the clever quotes. Here is another one. “Action speak louder than words.”

    How much money (action) has France sent to Louisiana? Really curious…

    Hi d,

    Perhaps if you hadn’t retained your idiot mayor and crooked Representative, the Federal Government would feel a bit more comfortable working with you? Of course, if you don’t consider the billions of dollars in tax payers’ money that have been spent to keep y’all living in a hole next to the ocean as “action” then kindly send it back.

    Hi Mad,

    Is my memory slipping, or is that a new avatar? Either way, I like it!

    OH MY GOSH…Here’s a reality check for y’all. When Katrina hit where do y’all think all those people fled to and who do y’all think is “STILL” feeding these freeloaders and crooks. Is your town being torn up and torn down? Do your childeren have to go to school with these people who choose not to be educated nor educate their offspring properly. Are they hanging around on your street corners? Well here’s the real deal. They moved in and have not moved out. I for one am very tired of seeing my city go to ruins just because these people don’t have the moxie to stand on the two good feet the Lord gave them. I say the sooner they leave, the happier and more peaceful my town will be. Bless Deportation.

    Sad as this situation was, these people took advantage of the government and all the people who tried to help out. But then on the other hand, this is a way of life for these people, to freeload, steal and take from the tax payers daily by being on Welfare. There are at least five (5) generations in one family that have never worked a day in their life, nor do they intend to as long as the system continues to enable them, instead of setting up work programs and guidelines like they did in California. Hooray for California.
    I for one work everyday, and I’m tired of paying for these people and the boarder people who have more privilages than I do. Somethings terrible wrong with this picture. Their is a solution, but when these people re-elect the same Mayor that didn’t help them to begin with, then they deserve what they get. Plus, I felt if they could catch a bus to go there and vote, and if they thougt it was that wonderful there, then why didn’t they stay? When’s it going to stop? I’m tired of paying for a broken system…are you?
