Apparently this was on Fox News 3 days ago but I totally missed it until today. If this doesn’t show the entitlement state of society nothing will:
Acuna: [There's] a lot of frustration, and a lot of it stems from the confusion over what a lot of the evacuees have been told is going to happen with regard to their federal assistance coming in. And I have a gentleman standing here with me who helps illustrate that picture. He has chosen not to give his name, he is from New Orleans, and he only says he is for the people.
So if you can explain to me, what has happened with your debit card? You’re having a lot of problems, right?
Man: Well, for one thing, you know, they’re not activating. You know, they’re giving us these cards, and they’re not activating these cards, and they’re giving us a runaround. Then when we call, you know, for the, you know, to find out if the card is activated, they’re giving us the runaround. And they send us back to Red Cross, and we go to Red Cross–nobody knows anything, you know.
I mean, c’mon now, f—, you know, excuse my French, you know, but anyway, you know, we’re out here, we’re stranded, you know, we don’t have any goddamn thing, nobody’s not [sic] trying to help us. FEMA is a fake and a fraud. Red Cross is a fake and a fraud, you know. Where do we go from here? I mean, who should we depend on? If we can’t depend on our own federal government, who can we depend on?
Acuna: The FEMA cards were supposed to be $2,000 apiece–
Man: Two thousand dollars.
Acuna: –and you received a FEMA card?
Man: I only received $700. Seven hundred dollars, and they cut my card off.
Acuna: And when you asked them why that was, what were you told?
Man: They don’t know. Nobody knows.
Acuna: OK, thank you very much.
Man: Do you know?
Acuna: I do not know, no.
Man: Well, find out for me, and you tell me.
Yup, he is complaining because our tax dollars only gave him 700 dollars, instead of 2000. So we have these people who could not think for themselves, who showed no survival skills, no self initiative…they just stayed in the city when they told them to leave. When they get hit they then expect everyone on the planet to come to his rescue. Wtf is this?
At what point did people stop fending for themselves? At what point did they expect the Government to take care of everything?
I’ll tell you when, when 6.6 trillion dollars was thrown at the poor for over 40 years, thats when. You can see how well that money fixed poverty huh? It made these people dependent on it, to the point now where they expect that everything will be done for them, no need to worry, if a natural disaster comes my way just wait for the debit card. Disgusting.
Acuna: OK, thank you. And actually, Bob [Sellers, the anchorman], one thing I can tell you–we talk about this confusion, and there are quite a few reporters who have been kind of confused during those news conferences. And we actually have direct access to a lot of these officials. And FEMA, in all fairness, has said there are going to be glitches. They understand that there are problems. They have said that everyone is going to get assistance that qualifies; however, they’re still working it out. They keep reiterating to us that this is a work in progress. Back to you.
Sellers: Alicia, is that gentleman still there by any chance?
Acuna: He is still here.
Sellers: Could you ask him what he wants? What is he looking for?
Acuna: Sure, hold on one second.
The anchor in New York would like to know–his name is Bob–he would like to know what it is that you would like to happen. What do you want?
Man: What I would like to happen? I would like for them to give us at least $20,000 apiece so we can, you know, get our life together. You know, we didn’t ask to come on that bus, slave. It’s like a slave ship. It’s just like, you know, back in history, you know, they put us on a slave ship. They separated us from our family. They did it–you know, just modern-day slavery, you know? Just give us what the f— we deserve.
Sellers: Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Whoa! Hold on! Hold on! That’s, that’s, that’s enough. I mean, you’ve made your point, sir. We thank you very much for being with us. But Alicia–
Man: It’s like a slave ship.
Sellers: –we know there’s frustration there, and a lot of these folks have gone through so much, and we don’t want to, you know, minimize or trivialize that. But we still have certain responsibility here in terms of what we’re doing as far as broadcasting.
Yeah, a slave ship.
This is just another example of the welfare society the Democrats have created. Where they are taught to believe they are ENTITLED to help, that they are OWED these things by mere virtue of being born. That is why it’s ok to loot when they don’t get it…because they are OWED things. Then he has the nerve to call the evacuation a slave ship? No one forced him onto that bus, he got on it because he was too dependent on the Government to help himself.
This guy deserves a bill from the local, state, and federal agencies for saving his sorry ass.
