I have a modest proposal for the Department of Terrorist, er Transitional Assistance (DTA).Heh. Just for the privilege of seeing Howie Carr drive Cadillac Deval positively bat$hit insane in his last few months in office would be worth it alone. You know, because Howie might actually investigate some of the 50K recipients with no known addresses. Or the cases like the girlfriend of a deported Dominican drug dealer with $65 large in EBT cards.
Turn your telephone tip line over to the Herald.
It has become painfully obvious over the past 18 months that the DTA and Gov. Deval Patrick have zero interest in cracking down on waste, fraud and abuse in the welfare department.
What could account for this abject dereliction of duty? Professional courtesy, perhaps? More concern for illegal aliens and terrorists than the taxpayers?
In its “alert” to the bleeding hearts, the ACLU says that photo IDs, which are required to do anything in this society except vote and collect free money, would “stigmatize people who receive government assistance,” you know, like the galpals of once-deported illegal-alien Dominican drug dealers with $65,000 lying around their apartments.Bingo, Howie. Photo IDs mean showing up. It's hard to show up for three/five/ten different names. Cadillac Deval discounts these as "anecdotes" - which he knows can't be disproven, as his administration is the only agency that could investigate and turn "anecdotes" into "data".
Which will happen right around the same time the sun burns out and we all freeze to death.
That is all.
