With all of the people displaced by the hurricane activity this year, Uncle Sam has been working hard to keep people housed & fed, but it seems that some are trying to take advantage of the situation.
It seems that a lot of the MRE’s (Meal, Ready to Eat) that were handed out in the wake of the storms have found their way onto the eBay auction block instead of people’s stomachs. This news has of course prompted an investigation to find out whether any wrongdoing has been done.
Having once lived on a diet of MRE’s for longer than I care to remember, I sure don’t know why people would be willing to pay good money for that stuff. But then again, people have paid much more for much stranger food items on E-Bay.
