  2. The fact that these trailers are going unused is due to the utter incompetence of FEMA. The unused trailers are not the fault of the Katrina victims.

  3. How about the fact that they may not be needed? Therefore may be wasting taxpayers money.

  4. The trailers are needed. Are you that clueless?

    People are trying to re-build their lives and get back on their feet. Which is why they still need the hotels that FEMA have been footing the bill for.

    Do you even have a clue that we have displaced Americans out there? People whose lives have been completely uprooted?
