  •  Okay, we now have a real time test site..... (0+ / 0-)

    the mudslide in Washington state.  Let private charities handle the aftermath; mobilizing heavy equipment, manpower, cadaver dogs, search and rescue, food, water, toilets for all the workers/survivors/relatives/friends/press, first aid and medical crews, geologists, hydrologists, trash removal, slope stabilization, relocation, rebuilding, etc...........actually, the list seems endless to me.

    I AM not suggesting we let these people hang in the wind, what I am suggesting is that state, federal, local governments are set up to respond to these disasters, they train and plan for these types of scenarios, they are ready, certified, and paid. Private charity, while having the most honorable intentions, is not prepared to deal with these types of disasters.  

    The same can be said of social services, health and safety criteria must be met to even be a food bank, food can't be just stockpiled on the floor in a warehouse.....................
