Government blocks relief to tornado victims

Bureaucrats with U.S. Customs have stopped a truckload of donated foods, blankets, and diapers from reaching the victims of the Oklahoma tornado “until every item on board is itemized in alphabetical order and has the country of origin of every product noted.”

Volunteers around Windsor, Canada gathered more than 40,000 pounds of supplies, and obtained the loan of a refrigerated truck. They planned to be on their way to Oklahoma last Wednesday but days later U.S. officials are demanding more paperwork before the truck will be allowed into the U.S.

Once again, the government manages to hurt the very people who most need help.
