    State can't provide addresses of Houston homes retrofitted with $3.7 million in stimulus money -- and nonprofit overseeing work won't release addresses | Texas Watchdog

    Wow. Sheltering Arms refused to disclose names and addresses using 'HIPPA" as an excuse. Sounds purdy shady to me... :cool:

    A good example of the Moral Hazard of Big Government handing out oodles of Other People's Money.

    For those who think we can't cut spending - think again.

    The closer the spending point comes to the collection point, the closer the watching becomes over the waste.

    The Feds should regulate interstate trade, deliver the mail and defend the borders. Anthing else they do results in waste. I'm pretty sure that given even these limits, the Feds wold somehow parley this into deep intrusions into our lives.

    The Feds are responsible for defending The Constitution - a court system is also a proper function.
