my thoughts on it have nothing to do with the party line...just my thoughts
about the situation as a whole, and as far as the allocation of help and
such, I would think that the majority of that burden would have at first
been on Mr. Brown... that's no excuse, but to sit here and totally absolve
the local/state govnment, is a bit more than I'm willing to buy.
the other states have been getting some relief tho, not near as fast or in
as much quantity as in NOLA, and I'll give ya that too, but the biggest
point being discussed here was NOLA, and I hate to think that once a point
has been made that stands on it's own, that we are going to now ruralize the
thing in order to keep bashing the govnment.
it's already been stated that the response wasn't what it should have been,
so let's stop trying to make out like the slow response was intentional
shall we, and let both sides agree that "there were some failings" "ON BOTH
SIDES", end of story....
and now that that's settled, let's see what we can do to FIX the problem.
I mean is that SO HARD to do?
