God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

Here's a little story I found over on Neal Boortz's site: THE POOR, POOR PITIFUL EVACUEES!

It seems one Rolanda Cain, her 1 year old baby, and her boyfriend (maybe said baby's daddy -but doubtful) are being put up in a hotel in Atlanta at taxpayer expense. What has Rolanda been doing? Diligently looking for a job and her own housing...NOT! Rolanda is sitting on her ass worrying about when the Federal handouts will end and trying to find another government program to enroll in. Sigh...what have we wrought?

Rolanda is worried about being evicted from the motel. She says "We have a place to stay. We have food. The only worry is how long it will last."

Say what? Rolanda's "only worry" is how long the handouts are going to last? Maybe it's just me, but if I were in her place I might be worried about, say, getting a job! Rolanda says that this is all very frustrating. "With no answers, you don't know which way to go." Well, Rolanda is quite the little self-starter, isn't she? Apparently she's sitting around waiting for "answers," instead of spending time on the phone or hitting the streets looking for some work. I wonder if she's even gone so far as to ask the manager of the hotel where she's living at taxpayer expense if he might hire her as a housekeeper? And her boyfriend? Is he out there looking for a job while Rolanda stays at home with the kid? The article says nothing. For all we know he may also be just sitting around waiting for "answers."

They're probably just sitting around waiting for a job to fall into their laps.

I don't know. I have a feeling that "working" is the last thing on Rolanda's mind.
