I just don't understand why the government is expected to magically take care of all these people.
First we complain the government is too big and steals too much of our hard-earned money and we want them out of our lives, then we demand they hold
our hand and deliver us from evil (disaster).
What ever happened to taking your life into your own hands and not waiting for someone to come rescue you?
We would get mad at the government if they didn't rescue all the people, but when they do, we complain they didn't do it fast enough. If we didn't
provide FREE housing to them, the government would be blamed for not doing enough. So we provide free housing and still can't win, because now the
housing we provided wasn't comparable to a 5-star hotel. There's harmful chemicals in clothes we buy, cars we drive, million-dollar homes we live
in, pools we swim in and the air we breath. Are we supposed to sue the government over that? We all know they won't do anything about it! It's
about time we took matters into our own hands, just like those displaced people affected by Katrina should instead of seeing how long they can hold
out in free housing. Heck, some of those people moved UP in quality when they lost their homes to the storm and got a free trailer.
There are no guarantees of a safety net in nature, and the more we try to create them, the weaker (less productive) we all become.
Oh right, right...the poor people deserve to have the government save them because they can't help themselves...sorry, what was I thinking?!?! They
were born into poverty down in Louisiana and the man is holding them down.
If you are one of those who still holds to that belief, you do know there are plenty of wealthy/successful/happy/healthy people who started life in
