JAMAICA IS BETTER THAN U.S.


In 2002, Jamaica conducted a full-scale evacuation rehearsal in a low-lying suburb of coastal Kingston, and fine-tuned plans afterward. When Ivan's 20-foot surge destroyed hundreds of homes two years later, only eight people died. Ordinary Jamaicans also are taught search-and-rescue methods and towns at risk have trained flood-alert teams.
Like many around the world, Barbara Carby, Jamaica's disaster coordinator, watched in disbelief as the [ Katrina ] catastrophe unfolded on the U.S. Gulf Coast.
"We always have resource constraints," she said. "That's not a problem the U.S. has. But because they have the resources, they may not pay enough attention to preparedness and awareness, and to educating the public how to help themselves." FROM: Washington Monthly

Here is a picture of the flooding in Jamaica after Ivan. From my own personal experience, I was in Jamaica two months after a hurricane hit, and there were still flooded areas. Amazing, that a Third World country with limited financial resources sustains massive flooding from a hurricane and only eight people die, compared to America, who spends billions of dollars "protecting America" in the form of FEMA, Homeland Security, Corps of Engineers, etc. but thousands upon thousands of Americans die and one million Americans are left homeless.

For the mathematically challenged, one million Americans = 1 out of every 300 Americans.
1 out of 300 Americans left homeless as a result of hurricane Katrina, and people in this country still support the current Administration? There is no hope for those people.
