    Family, friends, charities... no.. she relied on the Government, and the government failed her.

    But we need more government to make sure this doesn't happen right?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I think the point is, that if she had known that there would be no help from the government in her golden years, she might have planned better while she was able to work and make money.

    I don't care if she planned ahead or not. This is not a case where an able bodied man or woman was too lazy to work. I, for one, am not the kind of person that says "Too bad, just let her die". There is a difference between Conservatism and the hideousness that has been suggested here.

    Yes, government failed the People in New Orleans and LA during Katrina. It started with the failure of the city government and their failure to have adequate emergency response plans or to implement the ones they did have. The Parish level was no better. Then you get to the State level where the Governor refused, even after being asked, to request aid from the Federal government, a legal requirement prior to Federal resources being able to mobilize within that state.

    When it comes right down to it, Bush got a bad rap because the Democrats at all levels of local, parish and state government were both incompetent and negligent. Since their were no Republicans in positions of power in LA at any level of authority, this is a pretty safe statement to make.

    This was a case where Republicans and Democrats were both responsible. But, ever since Katrina, you have only seen both sides pointing the finger at each other, while not accepting responsibility and promising to make sure that this kind of breakdown in emergency services never happens again.

    The story is so sad .... no link tho, can't read the rest.


    SINGLE PAYER! Enough with this stupid health care ****. People are dying!
    People are going to continue to die, regardless of what health care system we have. We could immediately implement the strongest single-payer system in the world and people would continue to die because the program failed to cover their specific needs.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    I wonder how the Democratic supporters will react to this.

    One thing is certain. If you are poor and elderly, you might as well get in line to be floated away on an iceberg. That is what it is coming to. And it also goes to show that Democrats don't have a pedestal to stand on in this argument. But, I am sure that they will continue to try and find one, so they can keep calling Republicans callous.
    that's awful.
