Well, I think I have to agree with jewjewbee on that one. After Hurricane Katrina, when FEMA gave the people those $2,00.00 debit cards- Link, there were many discussions on what that money was spent on- strip clubs, designer purses, etc. (Don't hate on me, I don't make this stuff up, here is your links, if you want more Google it.. there are tons of examples). Then we have the current news in my area about the levee being blown, with crops being lost, etc, etc... the list goes on. There, people have actually chosen to live in flood plains, farm in flood plains, actually between two levees... and they get pissed when it floods?? That doesn't make sense to me. Now they are suing...

That doesn't see fair! When are they going after the other 1/2 of this money?
Here’s the deal. The one-time stimulus payments — $250 a pop — were sent to 52 million people. Of that number, 72,000 had died relatively recently. That works out to .0014 of the payments sent, meaning 99.86 percent reached a living soul.
