More of your tax dollars at work

I've been hearing ads all week for The Road Home program. It would appear that of the over 5.5 BILLION dollars we've already spent on the recovery efforts from Katrina, we - as in you and me Mr. Taxpayer - are going to fork over up to $150,000 per home owner to anyone who hasn't managed to drag their rear ends back to Louisiana yet.

I'll remind you the hurricane hit over a year and a half ago. And I'll also remind you that we have heard a plethora of sniveling and whining from residents of Louisiana who said they were shafted by the government. And from what I can see here, we are doing nothing but handing out money, hand over fist to these folks.

I really feel badly for the people that were effected by Katrina, I do. I know that there were and are lots of good folks who quietly went about their business after the storm, putting their lives back together.

For the rest of you, it's time to move on and get a life.
