“We are living like animals.”
They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney that we’d have a president completely indifferent to the suffering of the middle class. They were right.
And at least with Katrina, people didn’t have to worry about freezing to death.

Comment of the day:
FEMA, while it is a clusterfrig of titanic proportions, could not cause this much misery on its own. Although they FAILED to have emergency generators at key fuel distribution points (read gas stations) and although they FAILED to have any kind of plan to move food and fuel to the affected areas, and although they FAILED to even have a forward based supply of bottled water and ran out last Friday, even these gold plated MORONS couldn’t have frigged things up this badly alone.
No, there’s plenty of blame to go around, but primarily, the failure is a one more sign of breakdown of the blue-state model.
And FEMA shouldn’t actually be expected to take care of things like this (and after these continued failures, I hope that people start to realize this). It is not a federal responsibility. The blame lies with Bloomberg and New York and New Jersey politicians who go along with corruption and the unions, in addition to instilling a dependency on the state that can’t help, instead of self reliance.
