    If churces and relief organizations were more efficient, why are so many people on food stamps ? Where were those organizations during Katrina ? The simple fact is that all these organizations can not cope with any disaster on these sacales , that is why the Federal government ha dto create Fema in the first place (Gee wasn’t that Reagan ?)

    If we were going at the speed of Bush and his "FEMA"s response, Obama would just be getting back from vacation and Brownie would be moving the first aid into place.

    The governor of NY has waved taxes for tankers delivering oil and gasoline to NY.
    The Federal Govt has waved the Jones Act, which prohibited foreign owned tankers from delivering gasoline to certain ports.
    The first tanker arrived at 2 AM on Friday in NY with 2 million gallons of gasoline. Granted, it’s a drop in the bucket but more are on the way. Biggest problem is power. The city workers fought fires, rescued the trapped, and are now proceeding with the cleanup effort. But the subways won’t run and the gas pumps won’t work without electricity.

    Can anyone explain to me why so many people who are against government want to become part of it?

    Just like small children they want to get their hands on it so they can tear it up…and then blame someone else.

    Skip: in addition to the helicopters previously mentioned (which I’m very familiar with) how many ships, boats, hazardous materials specialists, troops, search dogs, doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics, firemen, and police, can those “churches” muster??

    Under the “Ryan model”, and Mitt’s “druthers”, I can see every “rescuer” carrying a card reader and saying " American Express, or Visa only Ma’am", or you stay in the rubble, or bleed out. Yup, I HAVE had experience with where “private ambulances” are your only choice, and it’s hundreds of times more expensive than where emergency services are provided by government, and paid for with those nasty “taxes”.

    BTW, I DO contribute to "Air LIfe’ and carry a card should I ever need a life flight, but that too is a “socialist” type organization, because if you pay your “tax” you don’t pay if you need the service.

    I think people are missing the point of this cartoon. It’s like a teen who rejects parental authority yet turns to them when financial assistance is needed. We are so incredibly selfish.

    The scariest words in the English language “I’m from the government and i’m here to help”

    Buddhardee: the hundreds of people I rescued over the years, didn’t buy that bull from Reagan, or you.

    Caps lock stuck again? Who will minimize the government? You? Nothing has changed the way you want it yet, even with the caps lock on.

    “….Anyone who relies on the Government to help is a fool…”
    You have a great aptitude for the obvious. Of course people are expected to contribute to their own well-being. But that doesn’t exclude forming institutions and specialized services to accomplish what the individual cannot.

    Righties always hate government, except when they need it. For many, that’s quite often given the outsize number of red states who take away more federal dollars than they contribute.
