(Time) Katrina Victims Facing Collectors?
We’ll start once again with the thought that Brownie did a helluva job. And when our Fearless Leader–you know, the one who wishes he was in Afghanistan having a romantic encounter with danger like he didn’t have when he was sort of in the National Guard–finally realized that the federal government had to do something about all those POOR people besides Trent Lott–he cracked the whip and sent his corp of incompetents rushing down to throw money around madly, not bothering to account for who they gave it to. That’s what happened in Iraq–they sent down truckloads of hundred dollar bills–on pallets–do you have any idea how many hundred dollar bills it takes to load a pallet? And they just threw it away. Threw it away…there’s about 10 billion dollars in CASH that no one can account for. Who’s got it? Not the Iraqis you can bet. So, the American branch of these incompetents rush down to the Delta and throw money around wildly. And now, they’ve run out of money–with 1/3 of the claims yet to be filled! So what are they going to do now? You got it–go try to get it BACK! Not necessarily from the people they overpaid–from the people they can put the screws to. In other words, the poor who lost their homes get to get screwed again. Kanye West was wrong. Bush doesn’t care what color you are–as long as you’re dirt poor, it’s all the same to him–someone to be screwed.
Isn’t criminal negligence an impeachable offense?

A year after Katrina (and using one of my better cartoons from earlier this year to commemorate it) and it’s a good idea to review some of the info which is hitting the wires about this disaster which caused more deaths and more destruction than 9/11 to New Orleans, Louisiana and the usually ignored Mississippi, yet wasn’t caused by Islamic extremists, terrorists, or godless liberals. (AP) Democrats cite no-bid Katrina contracts The government awarded 70 percent of its contracts for Hurricane Katrina work without full competition, wasting hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in the process, says a House study released Thursday by Democrats.”

(AP) 4 indicted over Katrina debris removal Just a local bunch of boys, but an indication of just how MUCH fraud is going on down there.

Hezbollah offers Lebanese relief “Hezbollah began doling out $12,000 in lump sums to homeless families last week so they could rent apartments and furniture for a year, he said. Any Lebanese who ventured near a tent set up as Hezbollah emergency headquarters said the offer far outstripped any effort made by Lebanon’s government.” Heck, it outstripped the paltry $2,000 our government doles out to Katrina victims.

(CBC) New Orleans phone book cut in half by Katrina Back in my youth, I’d break phonebooks in half when they were used up to impress people (it’s a trick). I don’t think I could do it to DC’s anymore but wow, New Orleans is down to a size I think I could STILL break in half.

(AP) Who’s to blame for state of New Orleans? At least it didn’t list the sinfulness of the New Orleansians.

(Reuters) Most Katrina claimants satisfied: insurance group Well, they WOULD say that, wouldn’t they? “but lawyers for claimants in one of the states call this figure ‘absurd and misleading.’”

(AP) Bush says Katrina recovery takes time Isn’t that what he said about finding WMDs in Iraq? Guess what, we still haven’t found those.
