I'm watching a documentary on HBO called "Trouble the Water" and it's saddening to see how our government failed so horribly in a time of crisis.


^ Good read and really love the end, when he says " Itís not compassionate simply to throw money at a problem, especially when that money is wasted and does not help the very people who need it most. Itís not compassionate for politicians to spend money that doesnít belong to them. Itís not compassionate to instill false hope that Washington can solve every problem and respond to every emergency. Itís certainly not compassionate to create huge deficits that hurt poor people the most through inflation, as government prints more and more money to pay its bills"
