Welcome to America!

… isn't this how things are supposed to work? Never give a sucker an even break.

Anyway the fraudsters are only just getting started. The US authorities are famous for doling out cash after disasters without doing much checking about the viability of the claims. I made a packet claiming for my fishing fleet after Deepwater Horizon and have just completed the paperwork for my fake refinery business… With the governor talking up rebuilding costs of more than $ 125 * 10^9 there's a lot to go around. Except for the chumps living in accommodation built on flood plains and who have no insurance.

Course Trump will be at the head of the queue with his offer to donate from his private fortune. We've heard that one before.

Plus ça change.
