    Default Disgusted!

    Once again our fine government is in superb form! As they stuff their faces with fine foods this weekend another disaster of epic proportions has taken place on two fronts. South Asia and Guatamala.

    At first the government was quick to react (couple of days) and send a dismal 20million to a aid agency (U.N) wich just got lambasted for being disorganized and doing basically a crap job in the Tsunami Reilief effort.

    Some key things that survivors of these disasters require - medical attention, food&water. Canadas D.A.R.T team is able to supply these basic needs - heck they can set up a mini hospital and make fresh water. NO NO NO - lets keep them locked away until THEY ARE ASKED FOR!!! WHAT THE F*** are they supposed to be for.

    I am absolutly once again disgusted in our LIBERAL tuck your head in the sand - hope nobody notices me BS!

    I feel sorry for those affected by these tragedies - especially with a government that doesnt care and one that wont act on its own initiative. We have the resources, lets use them!

    What a bunch of MORONS!


    arghh - rant over!

    I actually just sent the WT a PM asking if they would consider renaming the Katrina/Rita forum to "Natural Disasters". I never know where to post stuff like earthquakes, floods, hurricanes etc. I used to post them under Firefighting and/or Off Duty but that didn't always go over well.

    Good idea - a natural disaster thread should be suitable for all events happening. Unbelievable the amount of loss we have witnessed in a year. News last night said we have tripled the world average for deaths in a year. Cant wait for next year
