Why wasn't the Corp of Engineers prepared for this, the new the strom surge was coming for days?[/end DNC mode]
Why hadn't they increased the height of this levee?
Why wasn't Presidnt Obama more prepared for this?
Where is FEMA and the Coast Guard for these people?
Why wren't they pre-positioned to thos very site, knowing that a lvee could break?
This is exactly what they did to Bush during Katrina at every turn.
The problem, as I see it, is not so much that the levees didn’t get upgraded.
The problem is the whole “benevolent dictator” thing. As has been well said, a government powerful enough to give you everything you need is certainly powerful enough to take it away.
And by me saying that, I’m not necessarily dinging even the government. People get the government they elect.
If the people want to end up being little more than sharecroppers living in a shack, they will depend on government. Any time they need something, their first reaction will be to ask government for it.
And the people then become lame. They can’t think for themselves. They can’t build for themselves. They can’t feed or heal themselves. They are out of ideas and motivation.
A people so inclined are not easily conquered, they are already conquered!
So which is worse, sticking your head in the sand and denying that a event even happen or lying about the handling of the event?
THANK YOU! You said it better than I could.
I’d also like to see a show of hands among East Coasters and New Yorkers who are pro-Obama but also would like to get the benefits right now, of coal-fired plant generated electricity.
