This is really starting to piss me off

     I have to admit that the first day that the hurricane hit I didn't really care too much about it. I figured it was going to be pretty much like all the other hurricanes. Sure, maybe a few people would die from being at the wrong place at the wrong time, but once put into context of all the death and destruction around the world, it would be insignificant. Well I was wrong. This truly is a horrible disaster and the way that the government has responded has been criminal in my opinion. And now there is no doubt in my mind that we are absolutely unprepared for any terrorist attack. They knew the hurricane was coming and look at the situation. Terrorists usually don't let you track them coming in through the Gulf.

    Here's a heartbreaking video from the President of Jefferson parish, Louisiana.

And Ashcroft did proclaim Natural Disaster Response as being under his DoHS jurisdiction.

W is groaning over questions of responsibility, or "blame" as he is calling it. Like the failure of the Iraqi invasion, it starts at the top.

Regardless, there is certainly enough blame to go around.

What really pisses me off, and Ive said it on like 20 blog comments sections now (as well as my own blog) is that Christians blame humans for the hurricane hitting us, then praise God for when victims are rescued by recue workers.

ARGH! They got it backwards!

Bush keeps on proving his utter incompetence. It's almost remarkable, really, that such an incompetent baffoon was able to not only become president, but win re-election. Bush promised that he'd keep the US safe. Turns out, he can't even protect poor African Americans from standing water! It's just so depressing.
