CA Wildfire Survivors to Receive Free McMansions

As reported in the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Bush regime has announced that most California residents who lost their homes in the ongoing wildfires will each receive $1 million from the government, in the form of vouchers payable to Toll Bros., the recently hard-hit builder of large, prefabricated luxury homes. Homeowners whose net worth is at least $10 million who also decide to build summer homes on the site of other people’s damaged property in New Orleans will also receive an additional $1 million voucher through Toll Bros., new disbursement chief Michael Brown said, citing the landmark Supreme Court case Kelo v. City of New London to justify the use of eminent domain in seizing waterlogged New Orleans property.

 

In other news – I wish this was equally fake – the recent NASA probe of airline near-disasters has been scrapped, with all the data the agency had amassed over the last several years being destroyed. Under pressure from the Bush regime, NASA has erased their database of near-misses during takeoffs, landings and in the air because releasing the data to the public might make airline stocks decline and “negatively impact public confidence” in airlines, according to a spokesman.
