So, it seems to me from reading this…that our Goverment KNEW a hurricane was going to hit…AND had been asked for help by the local and state authorities…
yet, it still took them 4 days to do anything about it?? :wtf
FFS, Wal-Mart got their trucks in there yet, no one else could manage to get in there to help these people??
And it just astounds me, the lengths some people will go to defend this man. :shakehead
I’m just at a loss for words…maybe the rest of what I’m trying to say will come to me later.
if not…what she had to say is worth reading anyway
