or where your tax dollars go..

----

accidentally was listening to Left Wing Radio...pushed as "National PUblic Radio"...

after the news where Gov Cuomo (they mentioned he was dem)....was asking for at least 40 billion to 'rebuild' NY.....and how Christie was going to ask for 29 billion in 'aid' from the government to rebuild NJ.....and how he was a 'republican' but would work with NY .......

they then went on to whine how NY and NJ 'deserved' that money since the gov't had spent 'hundreds of millions' on FL over the years fixing hurricane damage and the same for Katrina...as if they were 'entitled' to picking tax payer pockets everywhere else to fund their gold plated rebuilding (and likely fixing things they were too cheap to fix themselves and tens of billions in deferred maintenance, etc)......but it was a 'guilt trip'...


then they went to talk about 'victims' of Sandy...and of course, the first thing was about 'those poor illegal immigrants' who were suffering.....let's see.....it was Rosa or something like that moving out of her flooded apartment, but the large screen TV and other stuff was oK...she was having problems finding another place since she was illegal and FEMA wouldn't sign her up for aid.....(oh, poor border runner who snuck across 20 years ago and works off the books cleaning homes...)......

then it was on to a Yemini businessman.....who needed a big 'small business' loan....he had lost '$100,000 in inventory' (really?).....for his small store....which was flooded.... and this was his 3rd one..the other two had failed....... and who knows if he was legal either?????



so we bail him out once again, so he stiffs all his creditors again? hmmm.....

and that was all their hurricane coverage. Nothing about the millions rebuilding their own lives, taking responsibility, having flood insurance, not living 3 feet above sea level.....

all about picking your pocket to send them 'government money'.....

They pick the left wing cases....and push the illegal case time and time again.......until we are sick of it...

oh, and of course, the reason NY and NJ need the money is also to combat 'global warming' and its effects...duh!....


I almost barfed but listened just to see how bad it would get.


It was bad....
