Why Wal-Mart Works Better Than FEMA?

I was watching CNN this morning and Miles O'brien was interveiwing a Louisianna Congressman about the Federal Government's reaction to the relief effort. O'Brien brought up that Wal-Mart did a better job of supplying immediate aid to the victims than FEMA did and wanted to know why?OK, I can answer that close attention now... Wal-Mart isn't government!!! It is a private sector business that moves freely without red tape, beuracracy, and political consideration.Need another example of private sector vs. government? OK, One of my favorite places Waffle House. Waffle House had 112 resturaunts that were not destroyed by the storm. 110 out of the 112 are open today for business using generators. The other 2 will be open tomorrow.

What a great comment. Right on! The private sector is NOT hampered by the bureaucracy of the government. Plus F.E.M.A. is supposed to facilitate . . . It only has 2,000 employees, so it is NOT designed to do EVERYTHING ... nee'?
