View Full Version : Sandy Relief Money Shouldn’t Be For ‘Gucci Bags

11-01-2012, 03:27 AM
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) says that the East Coast can get federal aid to deal with the devastation from Superstorm Sandy — but they’ll have to draw up a detailed plan first to prevent it from being wasted on things like Gucci bags and massage parlors.

What a guy!

"Hey you people <span style='font-size: 26pt'>who have just lost everything!</span>
I am willing to help you but I don't want you buying Gucci handbags, OK?"

Idiot? Cretin? Who knows?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Because the debit cards were mostly used to withdraw cash (as shown in the following pie chart) <span style='font-size: 26pt'>it was <u>impossible</u> for the GAO to determine exactly where the money was actually spent.</span>

But that brings us back to the rhetoric. King managed to turn serious issue into a racially loaded broadside on storm victims. The fact that his comments grew from a kernal of truth isn't a defense -- after all, there really once was a woman known as the "welfare queen" of Chicago, too. There's just no need to throw that kind of a bomb. </div></div>

From the millions affected who receive assistance, you can always find instances of abuse.

<span style='font-size: 20pt'> Much like in the High and Mighty God Party that preaches one thing and does another</span>.

Repigs are proving to the country that their party, and their candidate, value money, more than the health and welfare of Americans who are suffering in the midst of life threatening disaster.

Gee, it's like a reminder of Bush/Katrina!

Compare this to the guy they hate?

Stood up for women's rights with the Lily Ledbetter Act.

Diverted the impending Bush Depression.

Killed the world's number one enemy, ObL.

Got us out of Iraq, against the wishes of Mitsey, McCain, and many other war mongerers.

Accomplished and succeeded in passing and signing the first National Health Care Act, which numerous former presidents from both sides of the Isle, couldn't handled.

Protected the victims of the BP OIl Spill, by demanding immediate multi billions from BP.

Stood up for the constitutional rights of our Gay population, and those kids who were brought here by their parents, and have grown up in our country as American kids, so that thhey can get an education, and be a plus to our society.

Saved the entire American Automobile Industry, and millions of jobs, over five million, all of the automobile companies, and automobile related parts, products and ikndustry services.

Has tried to get Repiglicans to invest in jobs and investing in the recovery, by upgrading and modernizing our infrastructure, Bridges, tunnels, roads, the power grid, invest in retraining employees in oil and coal to get jobs in what MUST be a growing industry, clean, renewable, environmentally safer, earth saving "cool" energy. THAT IS THE RIGHT DIRECTION, AS OUR GORWING ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTERS ARE PROVING DAILY.

Increased border security, and deported the most illegal alien criminals of any administration.

Increased our allies, and is the favorite choice in our election of the vast majority of foreign countries.

That's not even everything!


A failure?

Actually it was trackable, and they do know.
