Email From Dakota

Dec 27, 2006 by

“We did not wait for some affirmative action government to get us out of a mess created by being immobilized by a welfare program that trades votes for ‘sittin at home’ checks. ”

Now for a much needed dose of reality, its BS. Here is a link directly to Snopes debunking it: Urban Legends Reference Pages: FEMA Comparison
