It’s begun. The public outrage over the carnage the hurricane has left behind. It’s inevitable. With 25% of the homes in the Keys destroyed and 85% suffering some damage. With 3 million without power, no gasoline, no food and the shelters overflowing. With people unable to return to their houses to survey the damage.  And, when they get there to find the house inhabitable. Anger is building and the anger will be directed to the government.

When government assumes responsibility for taking care of everything in a disaster like this it gets what it deserves. An impossible task results in an angry public. Over the next few days that anger will be whipped into a frenzy by a media that wants to use this to crucify Trump and the Republicans. The Democrats will join their erstwhile partners and play little Willie(we could have done better) and throw rocks from the sidelines. The Republicans will blame each other.

See, we have all become entitled and dependent. When we are beset by a natural disaster it becomes the job of government to set it right and do it for me first. I expect no inconvenience. It’s obvious with the early newscasts what’s coming. Sure, someone needed to check the bridges to the Keys, but to take a day to do that while I have to wait to drive down there is unfair. Do it faster. When I get there and find my place is destroyed I want a new house. Now. I want food, clothes, and gas for my car. I want it now. I want it first.

This is going to be ugly. Beginning today and getting worse as the days progress. There is no way to avoid it just as there was no way to avoid Irma.

The days and weeks to come will show just how close we are coming to Socialism. There is such heavy dependence on government to make everything right and so much blame when the impossible isn’t possible. it will be a nightmare.

    I agree. The media can’t wait because sofar the Trump Administration has been ahead of the curve.

    Well, as the great Groucho Marx said …

    “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.”

    Why anyone would think government can take care of you cradle to grave is beyond me.
