That was scary! The first paragraph alone promoted me to get up and walk around out of sheer annoyance. I was ready to throw up from the stupidity of this holy rolling moron. The really sad part is, many fanatical Christians really do believe Jesus blesses our wars. "God bless America" How I hate that phrase. I'll never understand that kind of total arrogance. I do believe these people are victims of mind control.

I saw my own brother transformed from an intelligent, fun loving guy to an angry, self-righteous, judgmental prick. After being a minister for over twenty years he ultimately lost faith in God anyway for not providing the monetary rewards he felt God owed him. His failure led to severe depression followed by a nervous breakdown. Today he remains a broken man lost to both his family and himself.

Doll, don't let ignorance get in your way.
I'm a fanatical Christian.
I started butting heads with Republicans in the workplace the summer of 2001.
Speaking of ignorance, I assure you that because a person is a Christian doesn't mean the person follows the news stories very well. I notice the same thing about non-Christians and anti-Christians.
Also, from a Christian who talks to other Christians sorta feller, I can assure you that there are quite a few of us who'd like to "lay hands" on George, if you know what I mean. You know, slap him back to reality. Then add a couple extra slaps just for fun.

Actually the title here is correct - please don't blame president bush, BUT DO BLAME HIS CORPORATE FRIENDS! Yep, the current US Goverment does not care about their own people, the Iraqi people or just about anybody other then themselves. Why you will ask yourself? Here is an Example how the President Takes care of HIS OWN PEOPLE:



Last September, a Category 5 hurricane battered the small island of Cuba with 160-mile-per-hour winds. More than 1.5 million Cubans were evacuated to higher ground ahead of the storm. Although the hurricane destroyed 20,000 houses, no one died!

What is Cuban President Fidel Castro's secret? According to Dr. Nelson Valdes, a sociology professor at the University of New Mexico, and specialist in Latin America, "the whole civil defense is embedded in the community to begin with. People know ahead of time where they are to go."

"Cuba's leaders go on TV and take charge," said Valdes. Contrast this with George W. Bush's reaction to Hurricane Katrina. The day after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, Bush was playing golf. He waited three days to make a TV appearance and five days before visiting the disaster site. In a scathing editorial on Thursday, the New York Times said, "nothing about the president's demeanor yesterday - which seemed casual to the point of carelessness - suggested that he understood the depth of the current crisis."

"Merely sticking people in a stadium is unthinkable" in Cuba, Valdes said. "Shelters all have medical personnel, from the neighborhood. They have family doctors in Cuba, who evacuate together with the neighborhood, and already know, for example, who needs insulin."

They also evacuate animals and veterinarians, TV sets and refrigerators, "so that people aren't reluctant to leave because people might steal their stuff," Valdes observed.

When Hurricane Ivan hit Cuba, no curfew was imposed; yet, no looting or violence took place. Everyone was in the same boat.

TruthOut

Interesting, no?

Cat 5 Hurricane hits the Island of Cuba and 1.5 Million Cubans are Evacuated! All of the people in Danger are put to higher ground ahead of the Storm! ALL OF THEM! Including the poor, the old, the ones without any cars or other vehicles. And guess what? Nobod Died.

That's how you take Care of Your People.

Stick them in a Stadium for 6 Days in a 80% Flooded City?

No Comment....

The Stafford Act specifically states:



§ 5192. Federal emergency assistance [Sec. 502]

a. Specified

In any emergency, the President may--

1. direct any Federal agency, with or without reimbursement, to utilize its authorities and the resources granted to it under Federal law (including personnel, equipment, supplies, facilities, and managerial, technical and advisory services) in support of State and local emergency assistance efforts to save lives, protect property and public health and safety, and lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe;

2. coordinate all disaster relief assistance (including voluntary assistance) provided by Federal agencies, private organizations, and State and local governments;

3. provide technical and advisory assistance to affected State and local governments for--
A. the performance of essential community services;
B. issuance of warnings of risks or hazards;
C. public health and safety information, including dissemination of such information;
D. provision of health and safety measures; and
E. management, control, and reduction of immediate threats to public health and safety;

4. provide emergency assistance through Federal agencies;

5. remove debris in accordance with the terms and conditions of section 407 [42 U.S.C. § 5173];

6. provide assistance in accordance with section 408 [42 U.S.C. § 5174]; and [(Pub.L. 106-390, § 206(b), October 30, 2000)]

7. assist State and local governments in the distribution of medicine, food, and other consumable supplies, and emergency assistance.


b. General

Whenever the Federal assistance provided under subsection (a) with respect to an emergency is inadequate, the President may also provide assistance with respect to efforts to save lives, protect property and public health and safety, and lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe.


Additionally, the President of the United States has the constitutional power and inherent right and duty to use military forces in the context of homeland defense and in the preservation of federal functions (transportation, commerce, education, civil rights).

Federal troops were used in the South during the 1960s to preserve access to educational institutions for blacks under this constitutional presidential authority. As another example, over ten thousand U.S. troops were deployed during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta under this “inherent presidential authority rationale” because of the potential for terrorist activity.

Why should he not be blamed????

That's what I was thinking.

"Please don't blame George Bush... oh but here's how you can blame someone who hasn't been in office in 5 years."

Hi curme,
It can not be helped, the gravity of the disaster has overwhelmed our senses.

Nice to see a Christian I can respect 'round here.
Me, I'm an agnostic with pagen leanings. I also respect the true heart of Christian teachings... Love, Tolerance, Forgiveness, and Brotherhood.

It burns me to no end that "The Church" has seemingly abandoned those true tennants in favor of Domination, Intolerance, Decree, and Wrath.

Hi Rikimaru,
This is not the "Terri Schindler-Schiavo" case that somebody would be interested to score politically. We are just casually exploring the news of the day!

Souljah, there is a bit of difference between Cuba and The United States, although we do see the differences dwindling as the decades pass. While Castro has total power and can command people against their wills, we still have steps that must be taken before the government can be dictatorial. On the same token, the death toll and the chaos would have been lessened greatly had more people left the area on their own God-given will. I do not say that to take away the blame the city and state shares, and to a lesser degree, the Feds, only to point out that there were deaths that were unnecessary, for which the individual is to blame.

I feel it's satire.

I went to Unes' website, and I get the feeling that maybe he's just stirring the kettle.

First i am perplexed as whether this is a serious intitial post or someone with some really good satire... I would usually say satire, but some the posts i have seen on here of late that show complete ignorance and 'sheepish' behavour, and a post like this wouldnt be too unlike some...

Second...

Although i agree there were probably people there who could have left the city but didnt, i feel a large mojority were probably too poor to afford to leave (i.e no car/car not working), incapacitated (too sick, weak, old etc), or didnt want to leave their loved ones behind for whatever reason they couldnt go....

The real issue is, where was the emergency evacuation of these above people, who would have been willing to leave but couldnt? Where were the busses? Airlifts? Trains? Where was their escape... We all knew the hurricane was on its way... hell in Australia we knew a couple of days before it hit it was going to be a big one... Why didnt anyone think to evacuate the poor and weak? But hwo cares right? The rich made it out (oh boo hoo they lost their house, which was probably insured anyway), why didnt anyone throw a lifeline for the rest?

Unes you are [edit] it makes me sick, you must work for the Bush administration. So if i gave you $300 bucks i could starve your whole family to death. Bush is the President of the United Sates of America he swore to do everything he possibly could to protect the people of this country. That includes blacks who were once considered only part human.

How dare you come here and tell us to not blame Bush because he made rich people richer and gave poor people $300, omg $300 is so much. He must be the son of God to give us so much money, i have never seen a kinder act in the history of mankind. You will rot in hell for such disregard for human life Unes.

Mod Edit: to remove personal insult.

NinjaCodeMonkey,your satire is almost as good as Unes. But you forgot the Clinton farts. The replies to this thread just goes to show how some people don't read an entire post.

How do the People without any means of Transportation Leave the Area?

How the the Sick stand up and go into their cars and drive?

How the the Poor? Should they Walk?

Where were the Buses and Trains and Boats NEEDED for the Complete Evacuation of the City and it's Residents? And I mean ALL Residents?

Why can Castro Evacuate 1.5 Million People without any problems - but the richest, most developed country in the World, Can't?

Maybe some people did not have the Resources to just "Leave the City" - and the Goverment MUST interveene in such cases and Help them get out, if they KNOW that a Cat 5 Hurricane is about to hit the coast and flood the City, which is actually under water in the first place.

But they did no such thing.

How does Castro manago to Evacuate then 1.5 Million of His People then?

With Magic?

I am an american vacationing in australia. I can only see whats going on from over here, and i can tell you this: ALOT of people over here are saying things like "America helped out the most after The Tsunami, why can't they now help themselves?" , and "American helicopters were the first ones helping out in the Tsunami, why werent they used in NO?" and "Isn't your National Guard SPECIFICLY built for this sort of thing? Why are they in Iraq? Where are your national guard troops when you need them?" and it was on the third day after The Crises that i heard this "doesn't your government care about its people? why arent they OVERWHELMING that place with buses and cruise ships and helicopters and law enforcement?"

I have no answers for them because the answers i thought i knew are not true.

And this one is my favorite, i heard it just this morning, "If i were George Bush's boss, i'd fire him."

Just thought you guys might like to know.

I hear people are criticizing President Bush for the short fall of the disaster relief in the city of New Orleans. And also for the lack of resources for the victims' relief. Such a ungrateful people! President Bush gave us the $300 tax-cut that we all enjoyed which created the boom in US economy. How soon people forget. You can not have it both way; either the tax-cut or the social services, there is no magic about that. So please don't blame President George Bush. He is a fine Jesus loving man, may Jesus bless him for all that he does. I love him so much.

Since President Bush took office he showed the world who is the boss. He demanded action everywhere, now the whole world fear us and respect us.

I guess I really shouldn't blame you for believing that to be true. I live in Europe. I even live in a country that right now has decided to join Mr. Bush in Iraq. Denmark. I have to tell you in all honesty that I cannot remember any time in my life when there ever was one subject that you always knew that any stranger would agree on, and that's Bush. Now this will obviously come as a surprise to you, but it's not exactly chipper words people over here use to describe him with.
I feel bad for you if this hurts your feelings, but the only thing that we might disagree on is wheather we should talk about how he is the greatest threath to world peace in the 21 century, or if we should laugh at how unable he is to make sence in commen sentences. The fact that a person that illeterate can become president is in my opinion the greatest evidence of election fraud. I'm saying this so I don't have to think the unpleasant thought that a majority of americans would actually want this guy as a leader.

I really think we have to remember that Hitler won 2 elections in Germany before becomming one of the most evil men in history. And he was a wartime decorated hero and very articulate.



Just nine month ago we, the people, re-elected him to the job with a mandate to proceed with his fine work. Few month ago Gallup poll reported for the ranking of the American's presidency, people voted overwhemingly that President Bush and President Reagan had tied for the first place, George Washington was at far distant second.


americanresearchgroup.com...



Let us whole heartily support our commander in chief and encourage him in his fine work, he was borne a leader and a visionary. May Jesus bless him in his deeds. He single handedly killed a lot of terrorists in Iraq. He is only one man, and he is working so hard, I heard he took his laptop with him while he was vacationing in Texas. We can not expect him to do everything. He needs our support.

If the Jesus you worship, supports killing people in stead of turning a cheek, God save us from your religion! My god says no one can kill in his name, so I suggest you come up with an original name for your master, Jesus is already taken and copyrighted by God. We do have room for you though, but you have to repend the blessings of a person who commands people to kill, and who does not aid his fellow man when in distress. That's the rules.


I heard President Clinton cut the funding for the New Orleans' levees maintenance, so we should blame Clinton for the disaster. A Tele-Evanglist said that a tape-recording of Clinton in the Oval office was found. The tape reveals that Clinton was farting while he was doing it with Monica Lewinsky. Poor President Bush, he has to smell the Clinton's stinking farts in the Oval office!

May God Bless us all,
Unes

The point is not to curse an unfaitful man who farts, commands people to kill and neglects to fund a levee, and then turn around and bless another man who farts while commanding people to kill and who neglects to help disater stroken people.

The point is, that you have an opportunity to come back to God. He loves you!



Sincerely

Cade
