From the Article:
"But she said there are easy ways for government to prepare people, like including emergency information in phone books, where even very poor people can access it."
Definately an Oreganian living under the rocks they must be quoting. There is already emergency information in the phonebooks, i've known that since i was a kid.
But what makes me laugh is the woman they quote in the article thinks the Guber'mint will help out in a emergency.
I am not going to depend on any government for assistance, i got extra food/clothes in my car. I just need to get a CC so i can keep my glock with me when i'm away from home, that's the only assistance i want from the Guvernmint is a CC..
I'm becoming increasingly concerned about the government now being Santa Claus for natrual disasters. We already have government replacing Mom and Dad for womb to tomb coverage and not atural disasters are being heaped on the tax payers. Less and less is required of the individual. There is also a haughty arrogance and impatience that goes along with the natural disaster entitlement crowd.
I can only hope that Bush is referring to a Jack Kemp kind of empowerment not more entitlement crap.
