How Government Burns Our Billions

This should disgust everybody:

WASHINGTON - The government doled out as much as $1.4 billion in bogus assistance to victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, getting hoodwinked to pay for season football tickets, a tropical vacation and even a divorce lawyer, congressional investigators have found.
This is why it has always been a general philosophy of mine that the federal government should have the least amount of money in the form of our tax dollars as possible. The feds running the show have been utterly incompetent in handling the Katrina disaster, but that's hardly anything new for the government. You'd think something could have been in place to make sure hurricane relief wasn't paying for porn and sex changes.
