At the end of the day I just don't think political preference should enter into a debate about an organisation setup to help American people with disaster relief. It doesn't matter who is in government; what matters is that the funding is kept up to these organisations to provide the services that they were designed for. :roll: America has large populations living in areas that are prone to, earthquake, flood, tornados, etc. You would have to be a foolish person to think that all these natural disasters are just going to go away; so that you no longer have to look at the fiscal issues. :roll:

That is not true. People are taking whatever they need. They are not being shot. However, the situation is made worse by another element that I have no explanation for. The people are being kept against their will in that superdome that is on the news. They want to get out and go to safety outside the city but they have been LOCKED INSIDE by so-called athorities. There is only one road that now leads out of the city BUT a check point or road block has been set up there to prevent anyone from escaping.
A group of tourists who had to leave their hotels tried to walk out of the city but police fired warning shots over their heads to make them turn around. Those police are lucky that I was not there..... because I would have shot back.

This is very disturbing. Why is government taken citizen rights off these people? On whos' athority? Who is in charge? I want his name.


Bush is athority or u are athurity?
I know u are a kind-hearted person.

I really don't believe the BUSH is a racist! :roll: I don't believe that he sat back and did nothing in the hope that black-americans would die. I just think he has poor organisational skills and makes bad choices. I mean lets face it the guy can hardly string a sentence together without help. :(

He was warned about this, but he refused to acknowledge it.

I don't know if I agree with that. A natural disaster is a very hard thing to assess.

Danyet is lying. It was me! I went out to the Caribbean and started stirring the ocean with my trusty spoon!
