    Bush has a policy of appointing people who will destroy the government bureacracies they are in charge of.  Again, the goal is to destroy government's ability to do anything and eliminate all social programs.  Starve the beast. The only roles for government are war and helping corporations.
    •  When it get's right down to it... (none)
      does it really matter if people are dying through malice or neglect?  They are dying.  Babies died because of heat exhaustion.  Elderly people died because they coudln't hang onto roofs long enough.  Young people died because they were shoved in a lawless hellhole with a combination of tired refugees and criminals without police supervision. I think it was neglect.  You think it was malice.  But what really matters is IT HAPPENED.... and there is nothing we can do to stop it.  But we can make the people responsible pay.  From police officers who abandoned their stations to bureaucrats who refused to "risk" making a decision to an administration that lied to us about it's emergency preparedness... we can hold them accountable.
