Why won't the U.S. take the help that's been offered by other countries to stop the oil spill? There's only one word for it, PRIDE!
Too much pride is a sin, and it's being commited by the U.S. government. Livlihoods and being destroyed, wildlife is dying and suffering, and water is being polluted.
In the end, it's the people that end up doing the work and helping while the goverment fills out a bunch of self-made paperwork. In New Orleans, there were thick bundles of forms that are needed in order to re-build your home after Katrina. More homes have been built by Habitat for Humanity and by celebrities than have been built by government. What happened to all those promisses about re-building? Much of New Orleans is still horribly damaged, but now since Hurricane Katrina is gone, the U.S. government doesn't really care.
Wow, and to think that I don't like politics.
