i'm cold-hearted

Forget about a helping hand. Some sorry bastards need a FOOT--- one bogged squarely in their lazy, leeching asses. If that statement makes me sound cold-hearted, then I suppose that I am.

Here's a "victim" of Hurricane Katrina for you:

After being flown here for free back in September, Johnson’s been at the Holiday Inn since Super Bowl Sunday. On April 21, the hotel served Johnson with three notices of occupancy termination, saying that it would begin court proceedings if he wasn’t out by May 9. He wasn’t, so it did. If the court boots him, Johnson could end up in one of the city’s homeless shelters. He’s been broke for over a month now. fema sent him $9,000 in housing aid, but he spent it all on booze, cigarettes, some clothes, and food—partying, mostly. “I spent my money just the way I wanted, and I think [fema] should send me some more,” he says. But it won’t. Johnson’s caseworker says fema offered to buy him a ticket home to New Orleans in February, but he didn’t take it. fema won’t now. So he’s stuck, at least until the Holiday Inn pays him to leave.

Johnson is "stuck?" I don't think so. In MY humble opinion, Johnson is the one DOING the sticking, and he's putting it in deep, too.

And Johnson, 49, isn’t that motivated to leave. For one thing, AMC’s in the middle of its “Thrill Me” marathon. Next up, Gothika. “Halle Berry,” he says with lazy lust. These days he’s usually up all night—it’s hard to sleep on an empty stomach. When he has to, he’ll go outside and beg for change, but he doesn’t really like that too much. Most days he just showers and gets back in bed, showers and gets back in bed. Once a week he and another evacuee, a diabetic named Larry, walk to a church off the Van Wyck and get canned goods. When Johnson’s caseworker, Sharon, comes around, she gives him some bus passes and maybe a few bucks, but she’s getting frustrated. “They sit around on their butts watching TV. There’s only but so much I can do if they’re not willing to help themselves.”

Poor guy. Thanks to New York City's compassionate squatter's rights law, Johnson can't be kicked out of his "free" room at the Holiday Inn without a judge's court order to evict him. And Johnson has plenty of reasons to stay right where he is. The free room with free cable TV is nice, but even better is the prospect of receiving some more free money.

Attorneys with the Legal Aid Society have been negotiating a buyout deal for Johnson and the remaining evacuees, and expect a settlement—he heard about $1,200—imminently. He says he’ll use the money to get a room for a few nights and have some fun before flying back to his little house in New Orleans’ Third Ward.

Yeah, and I suspect that when this sackashit is forced to return to "his little house" in New Orleans, the only thing he'll fix is his mailbox, so government will have a place to send him welfare checks and food stamps.

I've got a cold heart, all right. I think it comes from stories such as this one making my ass ache.

These guys are just two of millions of sorry asses doing the same thing. Need a lawyer, don't pay one, find a career welfare rider and you'll have access to every liberal developed legal out in the country. This will continue as long as a liberal dim-wit holds a political office in this country. I guess dragging them all out and shooting them is out of the question since 'you have no guns'.

I figure that if they give this sorry sumbitch 1200 bucks he will just spend it on booze and/or drugs and will be part of the homeless scene in NYC....maybe see a picture of him nect winter sleeping on a man hole cover to stay warm and some bleedin' heart will be writing how terrible it all is..

Another product of our esteemed goverment run education mills. He learned well from the Nanny State progressives that if you sit on your ass and do nothing they will provide everything for *free*, at the taxpayers expense.
The one positive thing about this lazy SOB is that he hasn't figured out that he could have filed false claims to get more money.
I also imagine that when he goes back to his home in the 3rd that the goverment will be waiting there with untold millions to *help* him rebuild.
I'm betting that his house never gets rebuilt, just because of his current inclinations.

The KKK could not have created a better shiftless character if they tried.

Stay tumed for Chapter II when he cries, "IT BE RACISM!" when they get around to kicking his black ass out.

Please don't judge all blacks by this liberal-created POS.

If the hotel can manage to get his ass kicked out, and if he runs out of freebies in NYC, he'll probably just cross the Hudson and latch on the the government tit in Jersey.

I'd chip in to buy him a first-class ticket back to the Third Ward in New Orleans, provided he agrees to stay there.

"Why the **** doesn't the hotel at least cut his cable off"

Because it is connected to the entire Hotel. If you cut it of for one room it effects the entire hotel.
