I am sure i can get some florida people in on this neibors help each other and so do out of state help. but the goverment watched us do it. and yes i am sorry to say this but ... fema and the red cross didnt do shit for my family or friends. but that was just my example im sure they do something. The people of the U.S, have heros that arnt in the military and that is who new orleans needs. not bush on TV.
Notice the difference between this hurricane and others?
In the past the locals rolled up their sleeves and got to it. The Feds came into town and primed the pumps (distributed $$) and the damage was repaired, leasons learned and applied to the next time. Nobody shot at the cops, the helo's, the firefighters, etc. They relied on themselves, friends, relatives, neighbors, community.
This one, the community has lived on the tit of the Feds Give-Away Program and the expectation is the government will OVERNIGHT, fix it all back to the way it was, so the locals can get back to everyday life (party-time!).
Get a life people, grow up, take responsibility for yourself. Life is not easy, guaranteed in any way, or cheap. You do not get a GED and expect a Fortune 500 company to hire you the next day as the CEO. With a GED, you're going to haul garbage. Take the money and go to college, hell join the military, they'll educate you (if you don't get booted out for you attitude). Better yourself, grow and at the end of life you'll have some dignity.
