Damned if you do/don't

From indymedia...

Damned if you do nothing

If you ain't got no money in America, you're on your own. People were told
to go to the Superdome, but they have no food, no water there. And before
they could get in, people had to stand in line for 4-5 hours in the rain
because everybody was being searched one by one at the entrance.

Damned if you take decisive action

"They have M-16s and they're locked and loaded," Governor Kathleen Blanco said of 300 National Guard troops who landed in New Orleans fresh from duty in Iraq. "These TROOPS KNOW HOW TO SHOOT AND KILL, and they are MORE THAN WILLING TO DO SO, and I expect they will."

Logical solution is to quit
" This is making a lot of us think about not reenlisting.” Ferguson said. “You have to think about whether it is worth risking your neck for someone who will turn around and shoot at you. We didn’t come here to fight a war. We came here to help.”

and then join the list of people who complain and attack anyone who tries to help - but dont actually do anything themselves.
