Shock Turns to Fury
Shock has turned to fury. How can it be possible a major American city has been destroyed? And why did it have to be New Orleans, of all cities? Compared to New Orleans, ninety percent of the rest of the country is milquetoast. Now the great birthplace of jazz and mardi gras is submerged and it’s populace–those still alive–are hungry, hurting, thirsty and dying, and what the fuck is the so-called leadership in this country doing about it? Do you think for one minute that if New Orleans and Missippippi and the rest of the gulf coast down there were populated entirely by pretty young white girls that George Bush wouldn’t be “moving heaven and earth” to save them?
This is George Bush, right here. Why cut short your vacation for an ugly piece of weather? Do I really give a rat’s ass about the poor black folk of Louisiana and Mississippi? Pundits on Fox have already voiced this opinion out loud: “Why should we pay for people who live under the sea level? Why should we pay for people who live on the San Andreas fault or along the Mississippi? They knew what they were doing. There are responsible, and we, after all, are the party of personal responsibility.”
At least one man has already committed suicide, leapt off a piece of highway to his death. Nobody noticed his body for a while until someone finally covered it with a sheet. Many more on the highway bake under the hot, southern sun without food, water, access to toilets, etc. They have nothing. No, wait. Some have something. Some have the dead body of their decades-long spouse slowly decomposing under a blanket next to them.
Where is the National fucking Guard? If this isn’t what the National Guard is for, what the hell are they for? For helping Halliburton steal oil in Iraq? What the hell is a government for if not to help your own fucking people in a natural disaster? A natural disaster whose final effects could have been avoided! Bush says: “We stand with you.”
WE ARE YOU! THIS IS THE SAME FUCKING COUNTRY YOU FUCKING MORON!
