Before I begin. Please visit this site: www.urj.org/relief and do what you can for you fellow man. It's the religious left's response to this horrible tragedy. I'm waiting to see what the right has to offer, other than another "day of prayer." Pray as though everything depended on God, but act as though everything depended on you. That's right: ACT. Then, please visit www.redcross.org and give some more.
Well, I have a lot of other things to say, but I won't bore you with most of it. However, today I'm going to vent. I'm gonna go off on the left, the right, and everyone "in the middle."
First the Middle: are you folks happy? The battle lines have been drawn, you either support Bush and his utter incompetency or you don't. If you are neutral at this stage of the game you my friends may be, in fact, too stupid to live.
Now the Right: are you folks happy? more than 1 million people are immediatelt affected by the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, and how did your point man in the White House respond? HE DID NOTHING. Your Bush burns unconcerned. There are no resources in the region to adequetly respond to this tragedy. How's that low-taxes/small goverment working out for you people? Guess what people, it takes taxes and government involvement to work through these tragedies. If you are waiting for the invisible hand of the market to pull you out of the muck, read on... How do your buddies in big oil/big business respond: let's screw the consumer. Not only are your pals making huge windfalls from high oil prices, they must absolutley being apopleptic with glee over how much MORE they can make during the crisis. Hey, I know...why not keep prices low, so our economy doestn' bottom out ???? Well, that would be un-American to be altruistic. GUESS WHAT BONE-HEADS, ALTRUISM IS ALL TOO AMERICAN. What are you people thinking? Greed is not good; it's one our your 7 deadly christian sins, remember? Ask yourselves: what would Jesus do? I believe he took what meager food he had and multiplied those fishes and loaves to feed the masses. When I see Pat Robertson or Dobson, or Fallwell at a soup kitchen ladeling out food to the starving and traumatized, i'll take you folks seriously.
Now for the left: Democratic leadership, you suck. nature abhors a vacuum, but you really suck. W's stuck in dumb-fuck mode, and not one of you has risen to the level of Giuliani in the wake of 9/11 (HEY, I'M GONNA USE IT TOO; IT'S NOT JUST HIS TRAGEDY). Where are you to provide the leadership the Right can't? At this point, ANY move is better than no move. Don't let this moment pass you by. Now is our chance to show that we really do care for all Americans. if you don't act now, we will have squandered all chance at gaining back the country from the right for at least 30 to 40 more years.
