What the ...

The Red Cross has not been allowed into New Orleans.

Hurricane Katrina: Why is the Red Cross not in New Orleans?
Acess to New Orleans is controlled by the National Guard and local authorities and while we are in constant contact with them, we simply cannot enter New Orleans against their orders.

The state Homeland Security Department had requested--and continues to request--that the American Red Cross not come back into New Orleans following the hurricane. Our presence would keep people from evacuating and encourage others to come into the city.

The Red Cross has been meeting the needs of thousands of New Orleans residents in some 90 shelters throughout the state of Louisiana and elsewhere since before landfall. All told, the Red Cross is today operating 149 shelters for almost 93,000 residents.

The Red Cross shares the nation’s anguish over the worsening situation inside the city. We will continue to work under the direction of the military, state and local authorities and to focus all our efforts on our lifesaving mission of feeding and sheltering.

The Red Cross does not conduct search and rescue operations. We are an organization of civilian volunteers and cannot get relief aid into any location until the local authorities say it is safe and provide us with security and access.

The original plan was to evacuate all the residents of New Orleans to safe places outside the city. With the hurricane bearing down, the city government decided to open a shelter of last resort in the Superdome downtown. We applaud this decision and believe it saved a significant number of lives.

As the remaining people are evacuated from New Orleans, the most appropriate role for the Red Cross is to provide a safe place for people to stay and to see that their emergency needs are met. We are fully staffed and equipped to handle these individuals once they are evacuated.

Cronyism, anyone?

Why is Reverend 'Pat's the name, assassination's the game" Robertson the third charity listed at the FEMA site?

Just how deep is cronyism and corruption in this administration?

Oh, wait.

Mommy, Mommy, it's hard to be president!

I was nice to my friend and evrything and made him king of FEMA and everything and why are people blaming me because I ognored that he was fired from his last job and described as "a total fucking disaster."

I mean, I'm just doing what the Girl Scouts do: Make new friends, but keep the old.

Why's everyone being so mean to me, Mommy?

Impeach Bush


This is not just criminal. It is psychopathic.

They requested assistance ...

... for evacuations last Friday.

But Bush was busy doing whatever it is Bush does.

Funding for the levees was cut in 2002, ending 37 years continuous work on those levees and ending important repairs. Bush after all had some Eyerakees to kill for his bloodthirsty constituents.

And of course all the warnings that this wasn't an if but when were ignored. I mean, they conflicted with what Bush's corporate sponsored "scientists" had to say.

And while people were screaming for help, while they were fighting for their lives, Bush was playing the guitar with some unknown country western yahoo.

Meanwhile, the "compassonate conservatives" have decided those left behind in New Orleans and Mississippi are kind of --- well, whiney. Why don't they shut up? What's wrong with them? No doubt, all those years on welfare are at fault for their inability to go three days without food and water. They're so --- so --- annoying.

And of course, the unspoken subtext is they're Black. And we Republicans don't like Black people very much, the welfare hogs, how dare they interrupt our Barcalounger comfort and viewing of the 700 Club! HOW DARE THEY?? Why we'd all be better off if those nig- er, people just shut up and died!

This is what we are being governed by. These are the people running our country.
