Department of Homeland Security issued a report this weekend detailing how over 100 Cities in the US were not prepared for a large scale catastrophe, similar to the Cat five storm "Katrina". The report indicated mass failures on all three levels of government, state, local, and Federal.

The United States is not prepared to cope with a large-scale terrorist attack or a powerful hurricane, the US Department of Homeland Security has said in a report.

The Nationwide Plan Review, conducted in response to directives from President George W. Bush and Congress, examined whether the emergency plans of cities and states were adequate to manage another tragedy.

"The majority of the nation's current emergency operations plans and planning processes cannot be characterized as fully sufficient to manage catatrophic events," the report said.

Well, Im really preaching to the Choir on this one, we all know that our government really doesn't care about us unless its an even numbered year.

This report really just goes to show you that we are on our own, again, except this time instead of not having huge taxes, we have huge taxes, an ever growing war debt, an economy on the edge of a knife, and now, we find out that IF and WHEN a major disaster strikes all our tax dollars will mean nothing in end except for less food and supplies to get us through the day.

The only other possibility, is that this is just more Smoke and mirrors, they want us to be all afraid of the next disaster and what we are going to do, I.E this is why this year has soo many disaster shows on every channel, instead of focusing on other important issues like POlitical reform, and social reform, and a Huge war debt, and an even larger DOD bill.

Either way, this doesn't bode well for the American working class. For those of us not fortunate enough to be born into an Uber family when disaster strikes we will be on our own.
