There are times when you have to trust that the government knows what it’s doing. When those times will come, I have no idea.
Various agencies, including the UN, have been crying for help in Niger and other places (including our own cities and schools) for long enough to have been heard by countries with the wherewithall to put the thumb to some portion of the cracking dike. The president is supportive of Intelligent Design (now that’s news), yet people who should know better can’t intelligently design some means of providing food to the hungry (and gifts of wonder to systems in bad need of repair). Let’s give tax dollors to profitable energy companies (how many times do I have to pay the power company?) so that they can profit more in my name. Sure, it’s a Christian country. When it’s easy.
Shame on us.
