Rant Off

From the democratic underground dot com read the reactions to Bryan "talking head" Williams' idea to compare what happened in California to what happened in New Orleans.

Bryan Williams decided to compare one group of refugees in Qualcomm with the NOLA refugees in the Superdome. He said something to the effect that "Things are going much more smoothly. There is even clowns here to entertain the children and no fear of crime because of the police patrols."
Sure, the folks in Qualcomm Stadium are suffering, but they

1) have power;
2) have running water;
3) didn't have to boat/swim/wade through polluted water to get there;
4) didn't have the f**king police shooting at them;
5) have a functioning mass transit system.

I'm sure there are many other things I'm missing, but it pisses me off that anyone would compare what is happening in California with what happened with Katrina and then say "We've learned our lessons." Bull-fucking-shit.

Rant off.
