    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.

    I never see that happening. They help but they couldn’t begin to deal with such a vast disaster. Not a chance.

    Sure so we can pollute as we “clean up” is stupid and just another anti environmental mentally ill declaration.

    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.

    Yep, the churches will take over. Especially the Mormon Church. With its 7 billion annual, tax free income, coming from charitable deductions. Then spending all of 0.7% of that on actual charity, the rest to church affairs.

    Strike “Government”. Put in “Society”. Now you see how ridiculous that statement is. Since the dawn of time people have banded together in order to protect each other. They all had “Government”, because without it the society won’t work. People who are anti-government are also anti-law, anti-order,anti-defense, anti-education and so on. This “Big Government” thing is just an excuse. Most people would be plundered, raped and dead within five minutes if Government were suddenly to disappear…

    Government is the solution to a natural disaster.
    Reagan was a problem who created a disaster.

    Yep, and we also remember Iraq and Afghanistan.
    And you are going to limit government by reducing security even further?

    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.

    Part of the Ryan/Romney Mormon-Christian Libertarian model of no one wants to help them that would be okay too since those people were too “stupid” to move there and not take precautions." Live and let die or pay is their way.

    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.
