I agree. It wasn't Bush's fault and it wasn't Brown's fault.<quoted text>
Brown was ill prepared for the devastation that hit New Orleans. President Bush failed in not having a professional Emergency Manager with experience heading FEMA. It wasn’t all Brown’s fault as some like to believe.
The local government and State of Louisiana was also not properly prepared. Disaster preparedness is often not taken seriously until after the fact.
Complicating the incident was many of New Orleans residents were indigent. Not being able to have their own evacuation plan. Thousands of school buses were flooded that could have been used to evacuate the poor prior to the storm hitting.
When you live below sea level you should take some necessary precautions.
I carry a razor blade with me at all times. I won't tell you where I keep it but it's hidden in plain sight. It's readily available to me even if I'm handcuffed. It will slice right through zip ties. I promise. I've seen it happen.
The problem with the aftermath of Katrina was a lack of governance. That's usually the case. When you vote for people that think like you, you forget the ones who don't.
