More ignorant rhetoric via Charlie Daniels concerning rescue efforts after the failure of the federal levees. *Beats head against the wall* Apparently, this post was the inspiration for Chris Myers’ comments.
What I want to write about is the people of Tennessee and the true volunteer spirit of the Volunteer State.
In the limited coverage given the flood by the national media did you see anybody on a rooftop waiting for a coast guard chopper to pick them up?
No you didn’t, because when something like this happens the good people of the mid south get their priorities in order.
First, thousands of prayers went up to the one who is truly in charge.
They didn’t wait for or depend on the government; people took their personal boats into the flooded neighborhoods and picked up perfect strangers, taking them to the safety of higher ground.
