I don't know about anyone else, but ever since the disaster in the SE, it is becoming increasingly more difficult for me to watch news coverage or
read the news online. Why? Because of all the sickening political carping back and forth. It isn't sufficient to simply report the conditions and
tell the stories - someone has to be blamed; a shallow instant analysis is more important than straight facts, or objective truths, or even positive
suggestions on how to make the situation better.
Exactly. Very well said! It's absolutely sickening
to me that so many people are trying to exploit this incredibly tragic event for their
stupid political gain. It makes me want to burst out in a fit of profanity, but I'm better than that. It seems like as soon as this struck, people
were jumping online to dig up as much information as they could, so as to find somebody to accuse
. Then they hide under the guise of "We just
want the truth!". For Christ's sake, couldn't you wait until people have stopped dying before bringing your filthy partisan games into this?
"Bush is to blame". Yeah, shut the Hell up. People are dying, can't you wait two God damned seconds before trying to push your political agenda
on everybody? Might as well just walk on over the dead bodies and hold a political rally right there. (I'm sorry for the graphic analogy) Nobody's
to blame. It's a natural disaster. If you wanna say anybody is to blame, it's all of the collective government officals, including ones in the
effected area, not just one person.
I was actually proud of Hannity for what he's been doing the last few days. I was listening, and although people were trying to bring him into the
mud-pit, he was refusing to turn this into another floor for political debate.
There. I've said what I've said. I'm refusing to get drawn into any sort of political debate over this. At least until after it's all settled
