The Sad State of Disaster Relief


The Sad State of Disaster Relief

Jill Richardson

Former presidents are cajoling individual Americans to donate for relief. Maybe they should lobby Congress instead.

No comment I could make could top that photo.


“We” could also repurpose the US military (or at least most of it) to do disaster relief, which will become more and more necessary as the tidal wave of extreme weather events turns into a tsunami in the coming years.


Those five former Presidents efforts could have been better used in denouncing the Orange Ogre’s administration’s deconstructing of our government’s role in the protection of our citizens, our environment, and the planet.
