I didn't watch the Shrub's address last night, so this is the first (obviously extremist) take I'm getting on it, but... Did he promise forty acres and a mule, too?
No, but that's not the worst. Proposal #3: the creation of a Gulf Coast Homesteading Act (or something like that) which will use a lottery to give poor people plots of land in government-owned territories, provided they commit to building homes on that land and living there.
Yes, that's right. They are going to create a reservation to contain the poor of former New Orleans. I have no fucking words.
The actual transcript is quoted, too, and it really doesn't sound any less ridiculous.
