Don't Blame Brownie

"I'm from the government and I'm here to help"

UPDATE: Mickey Kaus has an interesting observation on this:

1) Hmm. Isn't the issue why anyone is building trailers in the first place that are dangerous? This doesn't seem like a FEMA scandal. It seems like a trailer-industry scandal. Most victims of poisonous trailers are probably a) not Katrina victims and b) actually paying good money for their carcinogenic trailers.

2) Is FEMA using the formaldehyde issue as a prod to move people out of the trailers--something it's apparently been trying to do for a while, perhaps to avoid creating a permanent class of free-trailer dwellers? In other words, maybe FEMA wants this scandal (and the press is obligingly giving it to them). ...

It’s always something. Cue the lawsuits...

Who else is sick and tired of angry ingrates complaining about the handouts they receive?

Not me. I actually get a huge kick out of it.

Sure, me too. The problem comes when some Lib folks in power actually pay the ingrates’ complaints any mind.

Just like those who make Welfare a way of life, the trailers were intended to be only temporary housing assistance but the ingrates made it into a permanent way of life. And they ever demand more as if the charity they’ve been shown were entitlements. We shoulda left them in the stadium.
