49. You can take care of people without military control
Our country has always done that. The military can provide structure and organization in helping the people, but we need an agency in charge.

Why are so many people eager to give up their rights when storms come? We never really did before.

I never saw National Guard do anything during our 3 hurricanes last year except to provide aid.

I never saw them walking the streets with guns drawn. I never did.

General Tommy Franks said people might be so afraid that they would willingly give up their constitutional rights. He was right.

This is the administration of fear.
