Yea, Katrina taught us all a lesson. Both stateside and abroad we witnessed the mighty US botch a simple natural disaster. Not just a disaster, but
one we could see comming. We can drop bombs on the other side of the planet in hours, yet it takes us days to drop food and water? I watch the news
like 7 hours a day (I work the front desk of a hotel, so its on 24/7) and I was/am ashamed to be an American.
Even now, months later, there is little to no progress being made to turn the chaos back into order. I have friends with family that was affected,
and they got a couple grand and a pat on the back. IS THIS WHY WE PAY BILLIONS IN TAXES?! Uncle Sam has proven, and continues to prove, that the
average poor/middleclass American doesnt hold any sway in the "Land of the Free." We can only hope this is only one mistake, and that it will not
Imagine a spontaneous disaster, or a terrorist attack. If we fumbled this so badly, how will we fare in something sudden? I doubt we Americans will
roll over and allow our gov't to write us off for much longer. We need to see a change, or we will institute it...
