    Our US Government is so use to wasting taxpayers money that it is just...Stupid!
    Well, here is a plan:
    Take the FEMA Trailers that taxpayer dollars were wasted on and use them for Congressional Housing! No more Government Funded Housing Allowance.

    What do you think?

    And the Government could also develop new architectural style Condominiums from these FEMA Trailers. Could be a Redneck paradise.

    REDNECK Condominiums

      If you really want a solution to the problems of idiotic FEDERAL government spending, start demanding your state government nullify the idiotic laws and spending taking place.

      Demand that your state nullify the income tax and numerous other unconstitutional taxes. (the Constitution was amended to allow for income taxes, so technically it's constitutional, but in the original text of the document, income taxes were specifically outlawed).

      Why the hell does 20-40% of my income go into a senator's wallet? Why do they get the best health insurance in the land at the same time they're cramming some other health care down our throats?

      Bring back the principles of '98... 1798, that is.

        I agree with  you. Arkansas has the State income tax and many other taxes. They are always looking to add more taxes on us. A Soda tax and any drink with sugar is next on the list.

      Or I guess I could have called this pick: FEMA Condominiums.

    So sad that it makes so much sense.

      Would be nice to see these mobile homes put to use instead of setting in cow pastures or other properties wasting. The Government spends millions of dollars a year for storage of these. Guess who really pays for this?

    That would immediately become the worst neighborhood in DC!

            Quite a hub! I have one my ex-foreman asked me to write about preserving the middle class. If you like it perhaps you would link them, I do not know how exactly and would not without asking permission.
