I keep hearing people say they’re baffled or can’t understand why the federal government, i.e., the Bush Administration, has been so slow to respond to the Katrina disaster and why, even today, the rescue operation is so disorganized.
All I can say is that they haven’t been paying attention for the past 5 years.
Bush sat reading a children’s book for 7 minutes as thousands perished in the World Trade Towers.
Iraq was raped by looters after the initial invasion by the U.S.-led “coalition of the willing” because of poor planning and organization.
Currently, there is no strategy in Iraq, except empty words like democracy is hard work and the insurgency is in its last throes.
This administration is good at nothing save for words and photo ops.
For the past year I have told family and friends that I now have a shotgun and pistol in my home and I have stockpiled bottled water and food supplies. I told them that, if disaster strikes, it’s clear to me we’ll be on our own. They chuckled and rolled their eyes, and thought I was perhaps “losing it.”
Now they don’t think I’m so crazy anymore.
