Whichever Way the Wind Blows

Here’s the problem with ideology. Especially the ideology of thinking that it is a good idea to starve the federal government until you can drown it in the bathtub. It sounds appealing … until it runs into real life. As they say, “In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is”.

Was the Bush administration mishandling of Hurricane Katrina caused by their ideology that government can’t help? After all, if you think FEMA should be abolished you must believe that it isn’t worth spending money on.
