Dick Is A Torturer

So it looks like the order to torture people, all around the world, goes right up to the desk of good Old dick. Dick is a killer, he signed (at least some of) the papers. Seems poor old bush might be as stupid as we all knew he was, Dick, Condi, Rove, and Rummy seem to running the show. Georgy our little presidential puppet. I wonder how they all get their hands up his butt at once? Must be pretty loose back there.

Sorry Poor People, The Rich Need Tax Cuts.

So to pay for giant tax cuts for the rich, an illegal war, and rampant over spending for military and homeland security, and a natural disaster and poor response to Katrina, the republicans plan to cut programs for the poor. Sorry poor people, we don’t care about you. That is the message coming from the government. If the democrat party would like my advice I feel you could use this to your advantage during the 2006 elections. I suggest something like this “republicans only care about the rich, they couldn’t give a fuck about you poor folks. Vote for us and we will tax the rich to pay for the war, give you health care for free, and make the environment better” I would vote for that. Ohh yea on top of all that they want to fuck up the Alaska wilderness for a couple days worth of oil…

Ex-FEMA Director Brown’s Emails Released.

So it seems Browny wanted to “go home.”

“Can I quit now? Can I come home?” Brown wrote to Cindy Taylor, FEMA’s deputy director of public affairs, the morning of the hurricane.

A few days later, Brown wrote to an acquaintance, “I’m trapped now, please rescue me.” “In the midst of the overwhelming damage caused by the hurricane and enormous problems faced by FEMA, Mr. Brown found time to exchange e-mails about superfluous topics,” including “problems finding a dog-sitter,” Melancon said.

Melancon said that on August 26, just days before Katrina made landfall, Brown e-mailed his press secretary, Sharon Worthy, about his attire, asking: “Tie or not for tonight? Button-down blue shirt?”

A few days later, Worthy advised Brown: “Please roll up the sleeves of your shirt, all shirts. Even the president rolled his sleeves to just below the elbow. In this [crisis] and on TV you just need to look more hard-working.”

This guy failed so miserably its a wonder people are not calling for his being sent to jail for criminal negligence.

Brown Defending Himself

Paris Burning

For the seventh day in a row, teenagers have rioted in Paris. They are rioting because they have been on the edge of violence for a long time. Much like the LA riots, people who have been harassed and beaten down long enough will take any reason to riot. I do not think it is important as to what specific incident started a riot, the point is that if people are willing to burn down the area in which they live, there is something very wrong. Content people don’t riot when something horrible happens, they take to the street in peaceful protests, or handle it in the courts, or fire people, or elect new people into office. People with no hope, and no way to change anything, they burn shit down.
