The compassion of the elected official...Submitted by Ulfilas on Thu, 11/01/2012 - 08:28
See how much government cares? We should turn over more of our wealth and freedoms to them. Private charity and action after a disaster will only slow things down and will not be coordinated with the state. Hiring private contractors to clean up rubble after a disaster is only an option for the super rich 1% and we need disaster response for everyone.
I don't know about yall but the first person I want to hug and hold me after my house is demolished by storm surge is a politician!
State planning and building regulations prevented people living within the danger zone of storm surge from building houses that would withstand such storms (stilts, etc). Thanks!
