THE BIGOTRY OF LOW EXPECTATIONS
Matt Welch, Reason
As Katrina wiped out New Orleans' communications
infrastructure, rumors of violence quickly filled the
airwaves. The only problem? None of the reports were true.

Should just rename the Astrodome "Gitmo2" since it would appear as if these people are enemies of the state. I wonder if they have two kinds of fruit.

Gitmo would be too good for racists and pillagers, it would be like a dream come true in fact.
On the subject at hand, in order to get the drumbeat for impeachment/resignations going at fever pitch level and hitting the barrier.....One must break through the useless echo chamber created by the right.
Remember, waiting is not an option. Do it RIGHT NOW and keep it constant. The next disaster which is going to hit Florida will be even worse, and everything will get worse and worse until the Regime is driven from power permanently.
So waiting is NOT an option. The democrats gained some balls and fillibustered the entire investigation Tom Delay joined with the Senate to provide. That is smacking him upside the head.
Remember, you're not dealing with some crooked politicians. You're dealing with the racist corporate culture of about 20% of america.
You are SHOUTING at fellow americans who are too rich, too racist, too cowardly to face you when you talk about Tom Delay or Dennis Hastert. They SELL themselves for whore money.
In new orleans, the rich could give a shit who comes back into the state...As long as its not poor people (or black). They have said this on TV already....
Those are the ignorant, racist, halbreds you're dealing with and must push off the screen. These kind of people must suffer enough to change their ways, or simply be forced out, that is the reality of america.
And they will reap a terrible reward, a terrible reward if they keep echoing the sentiments of Dick Cheney. If they keep being racist, ignorant, and intolerant.
Your job is to make the drumbeat of impeachment hit the waves so that polls are being taken for it....
And for gods sake, get people to walk out of Congress and shut it down if they are going to do whitewashes!
You have the power, the people have the real power. And it is neccesary to have everyone else focus on driving Tom Delay back and out of here.
Tom Delay funds indicted for embezzlement
Remember, he Tom Delay as well as Hastert are crooks and are keeping everyone from doing their jobs. Delay being one of the GOPs most valuable law-breaking assets, so everyone tries to protect him. Bring him & haster down.... House of Delay and they will have to recuse themselves and if Delay is indicted soon he will have to resign.
With the guard down, the reality of impeachment becomes a stronger and more realistic force.

"I have a very bad feeling about this"
I think it is for covering up how many have died, how many to help, all the details.
By the way, how do we know the donations given will even reach these people?
Can anyone communicate with the people inside?

They are just trying the lockdown on for size. No one got too upset? Asked too many questions? Watch for more, coming soon to a town near you.

Does anyone think there may be a link between the stranding of desperate people at the Superdome and N.O. Convention Center, rumors of rape, looting and armed gangs shooting at relief helicopters and the lock-down at the Astrodome?
For some time I've been think that they all point to a coherent strategy. Maybe they are trying to create the conditions for a massive riot.
For what purpose? To create the impression and instill fear throughout the country of a segment of our population that is dangerous, that we need to be protected from them and to show that a military response is the only solution!
That FEMA management has been gutted of most emergency management experts in favor of political hakes and spinners only reinforces my belief.
So far the victims haven't been as derelict as the people directing the their rescue. Thanks god!

They have been designated "enemy complainants" by prez bu$hit ... now they don't get due process, attorneys, visits, or to see the "evidence" against them.
And Chief unJustice Roberts will uphold it ... cause it is the right (far right) thing to do.
And it isn't torture cause people "from that part of the world" aren't from a "state". You know how them terrorists are ...

Oops I forgot,
Wonder what kind of paper they have to sign to get their 2000 bucks?, what would you imagine it says?

There's a method to their madness.
Fear of terrorist attacks got them a nice profitable war and got us to start giving up our rights. Fear of the huddled masses gone wild could get them the police state they so much need.
If they succeed just imagine how easy it would be to clean up a demonstration like the one on September 24 and kill or throw everyone in jail for ever.

Onyx: They wouldn't be able to handle the citizen outrage or onslaught that ensued, which destroyed their whole political image and response.
They couldn't even handle Cindy Sheehan. They are pathetic incompetent war criminals, fascists with no care for anything but greed. Before they ever get their "vaunted" police state, the people will have destroyed them or they will have destroyed themselves.

Maybe Cheney was visiting them and it was shut down to ensure HIS safety, the chickenhawk ?

DANGER! WILL ROBINSON, DANGER! BUSH HAS COMPLETELY CRACKED AND FALLEN APART! CAN'T BELIEVE HE IS "DISLIKED"!
"We will build greater resolve and overcome all challenges!
Bush admin and his GOP crony connects everything to 9/11 now, just to score political points. It ain't working. This disgrace must resign RIGHT NOW AND NO LONGER PRETEND TO BE PRESIDENT!
Cheney and the goons must be dragged out and hung or sent to a Gitmo prison. Bush, we're waiting for you to RESIGN completely. Nobody cares anymore about 9/11 or your constant bullshit.
They all, america wants you GONE and your handlers to resign. Just resign, for the good of EVERYBODY involved....Then maybe junior, it won't look so bad every day. To have the whole world hate you, that is.
