I'll agree, the feds are so wrapped up in red tape that they are chocking thier neighbors to death. This government buracacy will be the fall of LA, and a great blow to the nation's faith in thier ability as a whole. And this was just a localised Hurricane. What happens if Al-Queida detonates a dirty bomb over downtown LA, or even in the SuperDome when there are evacuees there? Since they can't handle a natural event of nature, what evidence do I have that they could handle a man-made disaster that would literally kill MILLIONS of people? I'm personally suprised that more people have not made the connection regarding actual emergency and the governments. The socialist system which seems so tempting to the population, (let the government be responsible for your problems), will be the very downfall of our nation. Too much trust and reliance on exterior influences. As I once read, "The helping hand of God can be found at the end of your arm."
If you are able, but refuse to help yourself, (you can unless you are nursing home resident material), why the hell should I or anyone else go out of thier way to help them? They had the means, will, and power to survive the disaster and evacuate in a orderly fasion. They chose not to do so. So why should I care one god damn bit what happens to the lazy people? If they are truly incompitent, that is one thing, but governement and the people cannot be expected to rescure able but lazy people. As far as I am concerned, if you are not impared, (other than your work ethic), and still refuse to evacuate, they are on thier own. I don't go begging because I want my gas to be free. I WORK FOR IT.
