    Yup, really makes you wonder how effective FEMA, Homeland Security and the Bush administration would be during a terror attack. They're way too concerned about chains of command (with few commands actually being issued other than to obey the chain), protecting corporate property and punishing looters.

    No real concern for those human beings suffering an dying as a result of their incompetence. After all what does bureaucracy care? Everyone can blame the bureaucracy and avoid personal responsibility for their own ineptitude and misplaced priorities.

    I really pray those assholes will be held accountable for the deaths and suffering they've inflicted upon their own citizens. Their callous disregard for human suffering now stretches from the bayou to baghdad.

    I seriously doubt anyone will be held accountable. Look at the attrocities over the past few years since the Bush regime seized control of America, have they ever been held accountable for anything? Hell they started a war over a pack of lies, outed a cia agent, gave an illegal tax break to the richest 1% of Americans, produced a fake Bin Laden tape, misused the terror alerts to manipulate the polls, destroyed our economy, caused the highest gas prices in U.S history and the list goes on and on...I could write a book. Have they been held accoutable once?....HELL NO!!!!!!!!!

    No joke, just a huge expensive fucking RIP-OFF of America in the making! BookMark those words!

    And now that $62 BILLION that has been unlocked for relief for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, is ALL going to FEMA. Every fuckin' cent! Nothing going to any other agency, all ultimately controlled by close Bush cronies.

    Do you REALLY think this money is going where it will do the most? What the fuck has FEMA actually done so far, other than bungle every one of it's security responsibilities to the American people?

    Some are suspecting that the FEMA operations were not bungled, nor were the white house's...but the actions they took were intentional, which of course, is worse by far.

    This stinks of pure, wretched Classism.

    i read this in the ny times. political wrangling's a bitch. i woulda hoped that the people's welfare would have superceded the politics, but i guess this doesn't happen in the real world:

    "as criticism of the response to Hurricane Katrina has mounted, one of the most pointed questions has been why more troops were not available more quickly to restore order and offer aid. Interviews with officials in Washington and Louisiana show that as the situation grew worse, they were wrangling with questions of federal/state authority, weighing the realities of military logistics and perhaps talking past each other in the crisis.

    To seize control of the mission, Mr. Bush would have had to invoke the Insurrection Act, which allows the president in times of unrest to command active-duty forces into the states to perform law enforcement duties. But decision makers in Washington felt certain that Ms. Blanco would have resisted surrendering control, as Bush administration officials believe would have been required to deploy active-duty combat forces before law and order had been re-established.

    While combat troops can conduct relief missions without the legal authority of the Insurrection Act, Pentagon and military officials say that no active-duty forces could have been sent into the chaos of New Orleans on Wednesday or Thursday without confronting law-and-order challenges.

    But just as important to the administration were worries about the message that would have been sent by a president ousting a Southern governor of another party from command of her National Guard, according to administration, Pentagon and Justice Department officials.

    "Can you imagine how it would have been perceived if a president of the United States of one party had pre-emptively taken from the female governor of another party the command and control of her forces, unless the security situation made it completely clear that she was unable to effectively execute her command authority and that lawlessness was the inevitable result?" asked one senior administration official, who spoke anonymously because the talks were confidential.

    Officials in Louisiana agree that the governor would not have given up control over National Guard troops in her state as would have been required to send large numbers of active-duty soldiers into the area. But they also say they were desperate and would have welcomed assistance by active-duty soldiers."

    Yup, strange...and scary.

    I'd recommend everyone to watch some of Alex Jones' documentaries. www.infowars.org They give some insight into what's coming...the likes of which we are already seeing the early signs, such as the Mexican troops beginning to patrol our streets.

    Military globalization?? Yes.

    U.S. soveigrnty? Goin' out the window.

    Slutter, you are such a fucking genius, IT DRIVES ME INSANE.

    Make sure to take a nice photo of your bar-code when you have it implanted onto the back of your neck, like the guy on the "Culture Jam" book cover.

    It's because you make it so terribly easy. You've never said ANYthing at all to prove it wrong because well, it's not wrong.

    As for the "Richard" thing, it stopped sounding cool awhile back...and that is how you define yourself and the world around you, by what is "cool", right? Of course you do, you don't know any other way. And worse, you don't have any desire to FIND another way.

    The internet is a vast place. Try google. Also, I saw it on corporate TV, and needless to say, they were talking about it as though it was wonderful.
