    Pretty sad...


    This past weekend FEMA and the City of Austin, along with the TexasWorkforce Commission setup a jobtraining/hiring/interview/job fair for all the KATRINA FEMA evacuees in the Austin area to be held at the ACC
    campus on Webberville Road in East Austin.

    Several of the evacuees said they had no transportation to get from the apartment complexes.

    So the city of Austin/FEMA/TWC set up transportation for each of them to ensure they would be able to partake of the benefit of job searching.

    The transportation consisted of nine buses and vans, to run from four locations in Round Rock, and five locations in Austin, in continuing shuttles back and forth to the camp to ensure that the hundreds of people looking for jobs
    would be transported in comfort.

    The vehicles were brought to their esidences; drivers knocked on the doors; and every effort was made.

    At the end of the day, the nine vans and buses transported a total of one person.

    Not one person per bus - one person total.

    At the end of the day, none of the KATRINA Evacuees applied for any of the jobs.

    Not one person took employment NONE total.

    The bill to FEMA was $7800.

    And yet they still get on TV claiming that the United States Government OWES THEM.

    I say we don't owe them anything and if anything, they OWE us the Tax Payers that are WORKING PEOPLE, they owe what they have been mooching off of the Tax Payers for almost a year now.

    It is obvious that they don't intend to work as long as they can sponge off of the system. It is time to cut them loose and tell them the free ride is over!__________________

    When San Fran get destroyed in 1906, not a single federal dollar was used to rebuild it... same for the great Chicago fire. One has to wonder how anything EVER got done before government became the "answer" to everything...

    BTW We have some folks here in town from NO that were displaced by Katrina. The ones I have talked to like it here and aint going back. To quote one couple I talked to" We got good jobs and our son is going to school. You folks are real nice here. We got nothing back there".
    My town is mostly all white and hispanic. Very few black people here before Katrina. A lot more black folks live here now. I kinda like having some color around. The people I have talked to were really nice frendly folks and were amazed at the oppurtunitys for work and education we have here. I have a hard time calling them Katrina victims. Because they have a better life now.
