There is a problem there. According to the Constitution, the federal government cannot just assume the state and local government doesn't exist, even when they collapse.
Bush released all assets to the state 2 whole days before the storm hit.
The city government collapsed the day before the storm hit and abandoned everyone in the city.
The state government collapsed when the storm came ashore.
There was no functioning sanity at any level of government in the city of New Orleans or the capital of Baton Rouge. And, EVERYTHING the federal government had at its disposal for emergency use had been released to the state government 2 days before the storm hit, and one day before the city government of New Orleans collapsed.
I can just imagine the media frenzy if Bush had just ignored the Constitution and pretended the city and state governments didn't exist.

By the way, how many hundreds of thousands of FEMA trailers sat idle in storage while everyone was homeless after Sandy?

Well Carol, here's the preamble to the Constitution;
"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Do you know what "promote the general welfare means"? It means that we don't let our citizens go hungry or homeless if we can help it. The safety net you keep referring to is under assault by the GOP. The Ryan budget was called immoral by the Conference of Catholic Bishops which is one of the most conservative groups in the country.
But keep on dodging the original questions Carol.
The Conference of Catholic Bishops which is one of the most conservative groups in the country?

Says who? You. OK.

Do you know what "promote the general welfare means"?

Yeah. It means whatever PeeDePoop says it means and in any vague meandering way he wishes to define it.

The Devil is always in the details and you are always in there with him making an azz of yourself.

An effective orator, writer or anyone in the public arena who wishes to be effective in their life's efforts will have an acumen of self-image. You obviously lack this.

If you could hear, read and see yourself in action, you'd go hide beneath a rock - that's IF you had any sense of shame.

You think "promote the general welfare" means it's the government's role to ensure half the country is dependent on the other half?
With this government, perhaps, but not the intention of the founders.
You'd be surprised how many people will find a way not to go hungry if they had no choice but to work.
This is all I could find about your claim about Catholics calling Ryan's budget immoral. Their comments were actually nowhere near your interpretation - in fact just the opposite.
Maybe you can post something else.
PeeDePoop, like most typical Liberal screamers, makes things up as he goes along. I think it's called 'Poetic License'?

Works great in Hollywood scripts and Popular Media/Music but reality always f*cks it up for them.

"...except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia...."
According to the Constitution, in ALL other cases:
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
It would help if you could read and understand the English language.
" Any U.S. military action in foreign lands risks creating more enemies, and impacts public opinion overseas. Our laws constrain the power of the President, even during wartime, and I have taken an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States. The very precision of drones strikes, and the necessary secrecy involved in such actions can end up shielding our government from the public scrutiny that a troop deployment invites. It can also lead a President and his team to view drone strikes as a cure-all for terrorism.

For this reason, I’ve insisted on strong oversight of all lethal action. After I took office, my Administration began briefing all strikes outside of Iraq and Afghanistan to the appropriate committees of Congress. Let me repeat that – not only did Congress authorize the use of force, it is briefed on every strike that America takes. That includes the one instance when we targeted an American citizen: Anwar Awlaki, the chief of external operations for AQAP.

This week, I authorized the declassification of this action, and the deaths of three other Americans in drone strikes, to facilitate transparency and debate on this issue, and to dismiss some of the more outlandish claims. For the record, I do not believe it would be constitutional for the government to target and kill any U.S. citizen – with a drone, or a shotgun – without due process. Nor should any President deploy armed drones over U.S. soil."...["Going forward, I have asked my Administration to review proposals to extend oversight of lethal actions outside of warzones that go beyond our reporting to Congress. Each option has virtues in theory, but poses difficulties in practice. For example, the establishment of a special court to evaluate and authorize lethal action has the benefit of bringing a third branch of government into the process, but raises serious constitutional issues about presidential and judicial authority. Another idea that’s been suggested – the establishment of an independent oversight board in the executive branch – avoids those problems, but may introduce a layer of bureaucracy into national-security decision-making, without inspiring additional public confidence in the process. Despite these challenges, I look forward to actively engaging Congress to explore these – and other – options for increased oversight."]...["Suc cess on these fronts requires sustained engagement, but it will also require resources. I know that foreign aid is one of the least popular expenditures – even though it amounts to less than one percent of the federal budget. But foreign assistance cannot be viewed as charity. It is fundamental to our national security, and any sensible long-term strategy to battle extremism. "]..["So I look forward to engaging Congress and the American people in efforts to refine, and ultimately repeal, the AUMF’s mandate. And I will not sign laws designed to expand this mandate further. Our systematic effort to dismantle terrorist organizations must continue. But this war, like all wars, must end. That’s what history advises. That’s what our democracy demands.'] om/watch?feature=player_embedd ed&v=o_CmZyn2We4
