Billions of dollars given to Louisiana to rebuild after several major hurricanes is still sitting idle on the coffers.
One has to wonder about the reasons for this. Obviously, Jindal and his tea party protagonists can't figure out a way to distribute this wealth to the wealthy in any kind of legitimate way.
A lot of that money was to be for rebuilding affordable housing, but that means housing for people who can't afford McMansions and Starter Castles; in other words, undesirables. Until the Jindal administration can figure out how to funnel that money into the upper middle class, it will just sit on the books.
I understand that the republicans are all about not spending money that doesn't directly benefit the 1% of the population who write public policy and own the republicans. Still, it seems like the federal government should take back this money if Louisiana can't figure out what to do with it. Give it to Mexico - they'd know what to do with it.
Here in Baton Rouge, the roads are disgustingly unsafe; the traffic patterns create gridlock, the cops don't pay any attention to the idiot drivers and the idiot drivers are busy killing pedestrians, whom don't have any sidewalks to transport them anywhere safely.
Is it REALLY that freakin' hard to figure out where to spend some money in this state? Apparently, if you're as lame as Bobby Jindal, it most certainly is. Demand the dorks who run this state start disbursing these funds to public projects that would benefit the citizens of this state. What are they waiting for. I tell you what they're waiting for. YOU to turn your back.
