He is commenting on the people wanting cash instead of flour and oil and bisquits....
Guess he fiqures we should make the connection back to Katrina and the cash debacle the government had then.
Im on the fence with this one......I can see not letting them just have cash....but I can see the point of some of these flood victims needing cash to purchase other items.....
But of course....they have lost it all and have been totally wiped out......so I think they should feel lucky to get some food.....
Damn pakis....... they wouldnt lift a finger to help us.....even if they could..... harboring al quaker and the taliban..... If it were ultimately up to me id send them a bunch of soap powder.....maybe airlift in a few tons of colored chalk.....and some paintbrushes....
Really mess with their minds......Let go of my cracker jacks, If you dont Im going to have to beat you....... now then hand my captain crunch back over to me this instant.....or else !!!

Many people have complained over the last month of humiliation when scrounging for food thrown from a helicopter or the back of a truck.
We should apologize, and send chefs the next time to prepare the food correctly. And waiters to serve it up in a respectful manner.I draw all my schematics in crayon now. If they cannot always be correct, they can at least be colorful.
Service calls submitted after 3PM will be posted the next business day.
I give free estimates [Wild Ass Guesses] over the phone.
I am not in business to make money from other people so that I can afford to work for you for free.
If the fall is over, mmmm let's say, 6 feet or so,.. I do not 'bounce' very well.

It is more a one size does not fit all type of situation. Some places it makes sense to ship in food, some places it makes more sense sourcing it locally. Some people need money to buy supplies to make them self sufficient in growing their own food again, some have other needs that a sack of flower may not fulfill.
It is easy for those against another people to hold up an example saying 'Look we try to help these people and look what they do.' but if we give them the wrong type of help what help is it?
Clothing drive are a good example of people doing something to help others. Then people get mad at the aid agencies when they sell the cloths to make money to get help to people. Makes more sense to buy locally than ship a container which may take a month getting there.
