Wiki is useful only for general information. Any controversial subject is best left to other sources, at least by reasonable people.
    Mostly, you're not getting what is being said. It is just an overview source. Not the end all. Nor should it be seen as such. but, for what it does, it's as good as any such source.

    Would you suggest we couldn't have used more help during Katrina? The military is a tad over taxed at the moment, and law enforement has it's own struggles.

    But go on. Explain further.

    As good as a local source ??? As good as a non-biased source ??

    I don't think so. You only think so because it mirrors your own perceptions.

    Don't know enough about CBC to know if it is nonbaised. Local doesn't mean accurate. But for what it does, an overview, Wiki is fine.

    Well your technically right, since we still have unconstitutional theft programs Medicare and Medicare and none of the current scumbags now (with Ron Paul being the exception) want to actually do anything about those programs.

    So what ??? They are still quite capable of handling any national emergency.

    Typical liberal. You would rather spend money to reinvent the wheel rather than use the one we already have.

    A lack of help wasn't the problem during Katrina. A lack of leadership and decisiveness was the problem. There were literally thousands of national gaurd soldiers available to render aid.

    Well maybe you should look it up on Wiki since you are so enthralled with them. If you did, you would find the following:

    Established in the 1930s, CBC News is the department within the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation responsible for the news gathering and production of news programs on CBC television, radio and online services. CBC News is the largest news broadcaster in Canada with local, regional, and national broadcasts and stations.
    Seems a lot more credible than Wiki. At least some jerk with a computer in his mom's basement can't edit CBC news content.
