This is the sort of neighbor helping neighbor that made our country great and
successful. Everyone involved should be proud of themselves, and thankful that
they were the ones giving, rather than needing the help. But most probably do
not consider this doing anything special at all, just helping others.Note that there was no need for federal, state or local governments to step
in, hold meetings, debate what to do, borrow money and promise to do something.
Ordinary citizens saw what needed to be done, and did it.What a
country! What great people!
yes, but how many of those uninsured homeowners will be "praying" the
gov't will contribute the money to rebuild their homes?Pay
attention to the details here. This is a sad situation for those families. But
it does reveal where a person really stands. Watch how it is handled and
you'll see whether they are truly "conservative" or when they are
personally in need if socialism is just fine in that case.
"Oldladyrunning" is that a pen name for Scrooge?
@DN subcriber. I guess there wasn't a need for the government to step and
fight the dump fire either. This was a tiny flood and I do not think anybody
thinks it deserves any state or federal help.
It was good to see that the neighborhood, church and just volunteers were
helping in this project. It could have been a great opportunity for a person
running for Congress to get some free advertising but she is practicing what she
believes. Limited government is what we need and not expanding government, even
for a small flood, which was big for those that had a flood, I know. There is
so much wasted money and time and energy with government trying to do everything
that they can't do what they are supposed to do. They are to be there for
safety and for the welfare of society, not to do everything. Even though the
Hunger Games is a good story about people joining together to survive, their
government was definitely awry. People really didn't have the freedoms
that we enjoy and to sacrifice children for their pleasure sounds like societies
of the past that have failed. We don't need that type of civilization and
I don't want to live like those people did. We should appreciate a mayor
that is not out to take every dime the federal government has as the Governor
with I Core.
