Anyway, I wanted to answer this, but I suspected my (obvious) answer would just get slammed. But since it's in Slug-Fest...

There it is!


I'm trying to find humor in this as a 'self help' mechanism, you know?

The plan to protect = Outsourced to a crony for big $$
The real recommendations = slashed & underfunded by 83%
The "Expert Response" Agency = appoint a crony fund raiser & horse trainer

How is there not a police force on the White House steps with cuffs for the lot of them?

I wouldn't mind if Nacy Pelosi was my sister in law... Or even my mother in fact. I respect her for having the courage to tell us that bush was oblious to what 'went wrong' w/ fema.


If the FEM. agency shouldn't of been involved here why on earth would they even come out of the wood work? Federal Emergency Response is there for what then?

Show?
