The Michigan Homeland Security Program provided
 several grants to the West Michigan Shoreline Regional Development
 Commission for 13 Michigan counties. Included was one snow cone machine
 for each county, at a total cost of $11,700. Even though only one
 county requested a machine, all counties received them. Why? “It is
 used to attract people so they can be educated and prepared for
 homeland security,” says WMSRDC Executive Director Sandeep Dey. “More
 importantly, the [homeland security officials] felt in a medical
 emergency the machine was capable of making ice packs which could be
 used for medical purposes.” Riiiiiight. Montcalm County Emergency
 Services Director David Feldpausch pointed out that the machine could
 be useful at the scene of a large fire or during very hot weather. “I
 don’t like the term snow cone machine, because it sounds horrible,” he
 said. “When you look at it as an ‘ice shaving machine’ and [considering
 that] purpose, it makes a little more sense.”

A THOUGHT: Sure, because we would never assume bureaucrats are just snow-jobbing the taxpayers.

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
