Exactly the point of small government those people should have set aside enough money to not have this happen to them thus deserve this

That is inhumane and dangerous. The people in charge should be brought up on criminal charges and fined. Absolutely unacceptable.

"I do question -- highly question -- the decision of the management of that place to leave before knowing that all of their residents were taken care of," he said.

I don't. The management of that place left them to root, hog, or die. They rationalized it by saying to themselves, "we made an attempt, and saved those we could, so, meh."

Welll, you know, it's not the duty of government to handle this. This is where our churches excel and step up to take care of the sick and the poor. Just like in the gospel. It's working really well, isn't it? No need for government to get involved. Look at all that compassion coming out of the woodwork to take care of these people. So Christian of them.

After Hurricane Rita in Houston a family down the street had left their three month old pup in the garage with a ripped open bag of food and left the garage door open about 4 inches so the dog wouldn't cook in the garage. The dog tried to escape and got stuck and cried and cried. My wife and I set the dog free and since the previous owners were such shiats, and it was a pure breed cocker spaniel, we took it to a dog rescue so that it would find a home to live in that wasn't occupied by assholes.

Right?
Reminds of  the debate with Ron Paul. He was like nuns never let people die. They will care for people like they always have. 🙄 FFS
Never mind mother Teresa actually filled with suffering was good.

The odd thing is,
I agree the government does things poorly. But poorly will always beat waiting for some rando to pop up and help.

"I do question -- highly question -- the decision of the management of that place to leave before knowing that all of their residents were taken care of," he said. It's easy.  It was too expensive to actually do anything that they were supposed to do, so they didn't do that.  So, IMO, the managers AND owners of the facility should be striped of any wealth they have and never be allowed to work/own any healthcare facility again.

The owners appear to be the Lake Charles Housing Authority.  So, the owners are the citizens of Lake Charles, I suppose.

Remember when hurricane Katrina happened and the prisonners in new orleans, most of which werent really criminals, they had smoked weed, not paid parking tickets  and that kind of stuff, were left to fend for themselves locked in a prison for days without food or water with water going up to their necks?

Government loves to kill its own people, especially when its republicans in charge.

That biatch siphoned money off to benefit her religious order instead of helping sick people as promised.   She was no saint.  And as you said, she was very much into people suffering.  Medicine to relieve pain?  Fark that.  God wants you to die in agony.

Unfortunately. I doubt anything will happen in this case. From what I can find it's a publically subsidized apartment complex, not a nursing or care facility.

If you set your pet free to fend for itself, you have killed it.  And it probably won't be quick.  Fluffy is going to starve to death.  So don't be an asshole.  Care for your pets.

How people still vote GOP is beyond understanding WTF


GOP voters think of self first. Tell them the Dems want to take away something of theirs eg guns, and they will become apoplectic. Tell them that a bunch of elderly people were left to die, you'll see indifference. Ergo political campaigns focus on telling them all about what those evil Dems plan to do to them. Bonus: doesn't matter if it's true or false, critical thinking skills not being one of their strong points.

Want to win them over? Don't bother telling them about what you can do for society, this translates as something for others. Remember their focus is "how will this affect me".

And no government regulations can kill me or a loved one.

I know a person whose elderly parents live in a nice house by themselves near the seashore, right in the Cascadia Fault inundation zone.

He feels if there is a tsunami that emergency personnel will, for humanitarian reasons, evacuate them.  Period.

Any attempt to direct him to the PSAs, official publications, and street signs that remind all that this will not happen cause him to become belligerent and enraged, and to accuse the person providing the information of thinking he does not care for and/or wants to kill his parents.

Nope.
That is exactly what is erroneous about the personal responsibility fallacy.
Nothing occurs in a vacuum;  the main culprit and their enablers need to be held accountable.
Otherwise it's like making drug usage illegal and manufacturing completely legal.

How doesn't it?  Gutted safety nets, crumbling infrastructure, people being left entirely to their own devices because money and resources have been directed elsewhere or pocketed while our leaders ignore the problem or barks at their victims to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and solve their own problems?  Even while they're measuring their success by how well the stock market is doing and how happy the predator class is?  Sure looks like "die for the Dow" to me.

I was thinking about this a few days back and my guess is that 75% of all charities are faith based or started by highly religious people.

/number-wise, that is, not total cash, as then foundations like Bill & Melinda will skew the curve
//foundations/charities should not be a replacement for government in needed services
///again, key word is "guess"
////bonus slashies: in the next few months, God-willing, I'll be in a board for a standing charity foundation
