Hu Gives a Damn About Disaster

leave a comment »

I’ve seen pictures of Chinese leader Hu Zintao visiting the earthquake ravaged areas of China.  The Chinese people were left with an extremely high view of their leader and their government.

Then I thought about the US reaction to Hurricae Katrina and my heart swelled with American pride.  You see, by getting to the damage sight and arranging emergency care for those affected by the earthquake so quickly the Chinese government have effectively raised the bar for themselves. 

Now, everything is great, but people are expecting the Chinese government to take care of them.  They’re expecting revitalization zones and housing.  The United States’ hands off approach enabled New Orleans to pull itself up by their own boot straps and even allowed us to expand the number of charter schools in the city.  The Chinese approach is comicly outdated and only leads to more big government.  Don’t expect any hand outs from John McCain either–he’s talking about just bulldozing the 9th ward.
