New Orleans Wisdom

“I don’t treat my dog like that,” 47-year-old Daniel Edwards said as he pointed at the woman in the wheelchair. “I buried my dog.” He added: “You can do everything for other countries, but you can’t do nothing for your own people. You can go overseas with the military, but you can’t get them down here.”

    I think it’s ridiculous that they’ve waited so long to get help into LA. I mean, we can ok a bazillion dollars to bomb other countries faster than you or I could blink an eye, but they have to wait DAYS to get these people out, or atleast get them some food and clean water? They should have had troops in there that night, helping to keep things under control, and had food/water shipped in. Sometimes, I wonder about this country.

    I thought that too, that the military was awfully slow to respond. But they are all over in Iraq, furthering the cause of democracy don’t you know? They can’t be bothered with this country. Makes me sick. 🙁

    Many tears have dropped over the past days over the images I’ve seen.
    At the nursing home, all the old folks are depressed, eyes glued to the tv, talking about how horrible things are nowadays, I would’ve thought they would’ve seen worse, but they all disagree… the world is in a sad sad state.
