To turn a horrific natural disaster, in to a political rant.
To me they look like Americans who need a helping hand
The funding for flood control in New Orleans was cut by 40% to pay for the Iraq war. There has been study after study that has predicted that this could happen, and no one did anything. If you are looking for "ass clowns" it is surely all the shitheads who have argued against Global Warming and fought the environmentalists, like the ones in New Orleans who tried to stop the paving over of the wetlands in that area and lost in court because the government sided with the big developers. There is going to be a piper to pay for this one.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
