Mike Oldfield -- Hergest Ridge

"This is what happens when there's a natural disaster of this scope," [the first lady] said. "The poorer people are usually in the neighborhoods that are the lowest or the most exposed or the most vulnerable. Their housing is the most vulnerable to natural disaster. And that is just always what happens."

And we know WHY it happens. Because those in this country with the means to change things, to make housing safe for poor people, to deal in good faith with the people in our country who work the hardest, do nothing. They shrug their shoulders. They accept that rich people are rich, poor people are poor. Or they go further and declare that the rich are blessed by God, and the poor deserve their poverty. We can't let these people run our country any more. God, please help our country wake up.
