This really ticks me off!
I watched a documentary last night about Hurricane Katrina. It sucked to see all those people who needed help--and no one from the US government was doing anything. Get this, the freaking Canadian Mounties came to help from Vancouver, BC before the US government even showed up! The people from FEMA and the National Guard arrived five days after the storm! The Coast Guard, however, responded quickly, and rescued many people just after the hurricane ended. But that wasn't enough. There should have been people from FEMA there helping from the start. But apparently it was too much trouble to even ship food in. It really pisses me off to hear that another country was more quick to respond than our own.
