Recently as I started to read The Augusta Chronicle, one of the headlines read " 'Government has failed all of us' " (Aug. 30).
I am sick of hearing about Katrina "victims." They chose to live there. Moreover, taxpayers don't owe them anything. I pay for my home and the insurance, and I do not expect the government to give me a handout. No government - whether local, state or federal - has any money except what they have collected from taxpayers, of which I am one, and I don't owe those victims anything. They should take responsibility for their actions, and their lives, and do for themselves.
This country could save a lot of money also by stopping all welfare to everyone who is not elderly or infirm.
