New York governor Andrew Cuomo is launching a $140 million ad campaign to lure businesses to the Empire State. The campaign, “New York State Open for Business,” is being funded with money drawn from federal disaster aid received in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and from the Power Authority and Energy Research and Development Authority, according to the New York Times.

Excuse me, but I was under the impression that our tax dollars that go to aid the folks who suffer from disasters, natural or otherwise, were meant to actually AID those people, NOT be spent on ridiculous ads, that are nothing more than total BS! Have you seen any of those ads? Make me want to throw things at the idjit box!
