It's not about fingerpointing or preexisting problems or hurt feelings or excuses or braggery or any of the other crapola that is being said to explain away whats going on in Puerto Rico

It's about 3.5 million Americans hurting and are in dire need of help.

The fact that we as a society can't collectively put politics and personal feelings aside long enough to see and focus on doing whatever is absolutely necessary to solve that clear and present challenge -- simply confounds me.

The best way to gauge the effectiveness of an organization's approach to risk management and response all too often comes down to three simple canary questions:

1) When the building caught fire, why did they respond by pointing the hose at the parking lot?
2) Were they surprised when the building still burned down?
3) Did they learn from the mistake and change the approach before somebody brought in the next box of matches?

Wherever you fall in the politics of the "he should be allowed to peacefully protest because of _____" -- or -- "he should not be allowed to disrespect the flag because of _____" argument. . .

If you include in support of 'no disrespecting the flag' perspective an article or meme or statement -- and that 'supporting statement' in fact shows a direct violation of the flag code you're saying we all should adhere out of respect. . . I submit it's time you step back away from the emotion you have on the topic, open up your mind, and rethink your argument.
