As If in Answer...

George -- I'm again' it.

The answer to the "Katrina" problem? Federalize disaster response. I hate to agree with the American Communist Loonies Union, but on this one, I have no choice.

This is, of course, what came of the American Left screaming about slow response from FEMA to Katrina. "What? We didn't swoop in and take over immediately? Is that what you're complaining about? Well, we've got just the solution."

The real answer is this:

Dear American People,

You are the most free people on the planet, thanks to a contract with the government that respects you enough to trust you with that freedom. With that trust, however, comes a responsibility on your part to be self-reliant and to live with the consequences of the choices you make. While many in the country are more than willing to help you out in time of need, you should not mandate that people in Minnesota subsidize the real costs of living on the Gulf Coast. If you can't afford to live there and take the necessary precautions to weather natural phenomenon common to the area -- don't live there.

What ever you do, do not allow the Federal Government to come and "take care of you". With Freedom comes self-reliance.

See previous post for details.
