you know what, dan? i think you've gotten to the bottom of this. clearly, bush not only knew about the impending hurricane, but he MADE it happen so he could shuffle the blame off onto other governmental entities and enjoy a butt load of kickbacks from his engineering buddies.

if you want to hear about corruption, take a good look at what the amazing governor of NJ, MrGreevy, was up to last year. here's the tip of the ice burg:

hahaha.. steve g, you rock man..

This hurricane has been such a disaster on so many levels. Whether you are conservative.. liberal, democrat..republican.. nazi, commie, green party.. whatever.. the main thing is a lot of people in charge failed at their job. I wouldn't be surprised if the President showed up in New Orleans with the blue angels flight squadron flying overhead with The Scorpions.. "Rock you like Hurricane" blasting thru speakers.

I asked a black guy/african american.. whatever the Pc term of the week is..basically a friend I work with, about how he felt about the race card being played,.. he said .. "What do you expect when you put black people on the back of a bus in the deep south?". we got a chuckle out of that..

Another guy asked about the Saints football team.. I rolled my eyes.. like, who cares? so what if they move to Los Angeles, the coliseum is just like the superdome.. surrounded by death and destruction and smells like crap.. but hey, atleast the coliseum is minus the water..

Anyways.. hope y'all donate to the relief effort.. [help]

That's because "Failure" is a word that is used numerous times on michaelmoore.com mostly when talking about President Bush.

Honestly this footage wouldn't bother me at all, (The police taking changes of shoes) but she didn't say I'm getting changes of shoes.Which would be understandable in flood conditions. She claimed to be looking for looters. It's a shame. But I am more concerned with the big picture. The larger shame. Where was the Federal help? Why did the President and his mouth pieces spend two weeks trying to shift the blame on to the local authorities? Why did the President only admit responsibility after it became clear that this time the American public wasn't buying into their Big Lie.

Actually.. in Bush's defense I'm REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY surprised that he said "The buck stops here" Him owning up to something really took me for a loop.
Even though it's a 1/2 *ssed 'buck stops here.. I won't take that away from him. yet.

After two weeks of trying very, very, hard to pass the Buck, it's hard for me to think it's anything beyond political expediency.

Quoting from a letter from Katrina relief worker David Langness (the complete text is here):

“You tend, when you see disasters of this scale, to reflect on the existence and intentions of a Creator. For me, the subject of these disasters and any Divine intentions is a fascinating one. I tend to believe that these are the times She may be re-thinking the whole free-will deal.

“And that’s because these disasters seem mostly self-inflicted, in some larger sense. I noticed that the New York Times and many other media outlets reported several human causes with Katrina’s effects: the building on and subsequent erosion of the Mississippi Delta’s natural hurricane buffer the barrier islands; the increasing temperatures of the Gulf waters and the hotter water’s very significant contribution to more and more powerful hurricanes; the repeated Federal failure to provide budget funds for levee reinforcement that everyone knew we would eventually need; the gradual sinking of New Orleans as the energy industry pumps out more water and oil and natural gas from underneath the city; the federal government’s finally giving in to developers of the outlying areas in the Delta by underwriting insurance policies for new building, which private companies had previously declined to provide; and of course the general, overall greed and stupidity of continuing to build a major coastal city below sea level without requiring elevated foundations and a flood-ready infrastructure.

“This leads me to wonder whether all disasters are man-made.

“Yes, I know that’s a stretch. But we have come to the point where we know where and where not to site and situate human habitation; and how to build it so that it withstands wind, water, fire and earthquake. We know which acts of commerce and agriculture create risk from weather, and increasingly understand how we make our own weather. We know that we can protect people by doing certain basic things to keep them safe. In other words, we know how to adequately warn and prepare for most 'natural' disasters. Natural disasters used to be called Acts of God, didn’t they?

“Now I think we can begin calling them something else entirely.”
