The National Public Radio news anchor was so
excited I thought she'd piss on herself:
the President of the United had flown his plane
down to 1700 feet to get a better look at
the flood damage! And there was a photo of our
Commander-in-Chief taken looking out
the window. He looked very serious and concerned.
That was Thursday. Friday he played golf. No kidding.
I'm sure the people of New Orleans would have

made it susceptible to an unfolding catastrophe.
Currents of chaos and lawlessness were running

were bound to come to the surface under the
pressure of natural disaster and explode in a

This man does not deserve his job. He is a failure.
His complete lack of empathy,
his utter clueless incompentence, and his imperial
hubris make him unfit to command
the fry station at a McDonalds. His complete
cluster fuck of the country of Iraq is
debatable - in some fringe realm of neocon reality,
it's debateable. But with New Orleans,
there can be no debate. The Federal government,
under his "leadership," has failed to deal
with the crisis in Louisiana and Mississippi.
Failed. Utterly. Miserably.
At the cost of God knows how many lives. How many
people will be buried, uncounted, in mass
graves and thus save this man from having that
number tattooed forever upon his forehead?
And do you know why this happened? Neither do
I! Neither does anyone else!
There is no reason for this. Come on! We are the
US of fucking-A. We are America.
One company, Federal Express, could handle the
disaster relief far better than what is
being done now. But no one has asked them to
step in. The US Postal service could be
delivering food, water, and supplies to every
neighborhood hit by the hurricane - but no one
has asked them to do it.
This is the president's job. It's his job to go
on television and ask for people to step up,
ask people to make sacrifices, don't drive unless
you have to, don't run your air conditioners
unless you have to, stay home, telecommute, conserve,
sacrifice for this crisis. It's his job to
ask companies to eat the cost of feeding and
housing the hundreds of thousands of refugees.
Every hotel from the Gulf of Mexico to San Antonio,
St. Louis and Miami ought to have its
doors open to refugees to stay free of charge.
Three squares and a bed - send Washington

beds in this country - there is NO REASON

There is so much that can be done with a FUCKING
PHONE CALL when you are the
president of the United States. What the hell
is he doing? Where the hell is the help?
There's nothing you can do about a hurricane.

There have been widely publicized studies over
the years about what happens
in a disaster on the scale of New Orleans.
In the first 36 to 48 hours people act altruistically,
helping whomever and whenever they can.
After 48 hours, people start to act in their
own interests. Order breaks down, looting begins
and chaos ensues. It doesn't matter whether you're
talking about poor blacks and poor whites,
or nice middle class folks -- the breakdown pattern
is the same.
You can't tell me the people in FEMA and Homeland
Security are not aware of that 48 hour
timetable. So, why the fuck weren't they doing
anything earlier?! Now, in the midst of chaos
and suffering, all they can say is they are going
to restore order at all costs.

The crews for three U.S. Customs Blackhawk helicopters
stationed at Crestview Airport
in Florida are "livid" because they have not
been directed to provide full-time support for the
ongoing hurricane-relief effort in the nation's
Gulf Coast region, according to Mark Conrad,
a former regional Internal Affairs supervisor
for U.S. Customs.
Conrad says instead of helping people hurt by
Katrina's wrath, the Blackhawk's actually
were slated to transport a CNN news crew to take
video shots of those people. U.S. Customs
and Border Protection leadership in Miami is
behind the press-play strategy, Conrad says.
"They have three Blackhawk helicopters and crew
just sitting there doing nothing, just so they
can look good for CNN. The crew is livid," Conrad
says. "They made one trip earlier and flew
over Biloxi, (Mississippi) where there are dead
bodies everywhere. Those are highly trained crews
and Blackhawk helicopters can carry a lot of
food and water. They could be doing something."
Right after Baghdad fell, some reporter asked

disrespects the troops
by Carla Binion
Most of us have seen the TV footage where Bush
made a comedy act of his failure
to find WMD. Before an audience of national media
figures, Bush pretended to search
in all directions, saying, "Where are those weapons
of mass destruction? No weapons here!
None over here either!" Although the WMD excuse
was Bush's original rationale for
convincing soldiers to put their lives on the
line in Iraq, he was comfortable laughing about it.
For all his high-toned talk about the glory of
battle, Bush never personally faced combat
and neither have his two daughters. Despite his
lip service about respecting the troops,
Bush has made light of their sacrifices.

money really go?
Not wanting to dampen people's desire to help
out the victims of Katrina, but is the Red Cross
the only way to go? In an e-mail from my church,
my pastor said, "We *know* that 95% of the
proceeds will go to helping the people" if we
used the Lutheran Disaster Response.
This made me wonder about the wisdom of relying
solely on the Red Cross to help people on
the Gulf Coast--who knows what percentage of
donations actually go to the victims?
I know that people went crazy after 9/11 and gave
hundreds of millions of dollars to the Red Cross.
I also remember that there were questions about
how well those funds were distributed afterward.
Has there ever been a proper accounting?
The way things are in the world, I don't trust
anyone to make a good decision that would help
the most people in the best way. Everyone's out
to make a buck and screw others over,
no matter what, even in the face of total disaster.

Market Killed New Orleans
The free market played a crucial role in the
destruction of New Orleans and the death of thousands
of its residents. Forewarned that a momentous (force 5) hurricane was going
to hit that city and
surrounding areas, what did officials do? They played the free market.
They announced that everyone should evacuate.
Everyone was expected to devise their own way out
of the disaster area by private means, just like people do when disaster
hits free-market Third World countries.
It is a beautiful thing this free market in which
every individual pursues his or her own personal interests
and thereby effects an optimal outcome for the entire society. Thus does
the invisible hand work its
wonders in mysterious ways.

Koppel asked him some pointed questions about
the chaos and mismanagement going on in

and deflected. He couldn't answer
direct questions! This shows the world the utter
incompetence that permeates the Bush Administration.
Repuglicans are even pointing to the incompetence.

was no previous warning concerning the levy break

chief justice would be in place when the court opens its term Oct. 3.
The switch would be unprecedented in modern times.
