The Katrina Blame Game Continues!

The opportunists are lining up to point the finger, grab some face time and moveon.org!

With Hillary leading the charge, Jesse, Al, Nancy, Oprah, Sean and a host of liberal losers are lining up for their 15 minute allottments. And guess where they are pointing the fingers? Guess where my finger is pointing?

I have a serious question. Why did the so many able-bodied minorities choose to stay in New Orleans when federal officials were calling for mandatory evacuations? Could it be that they do not trust the feds? Where could such widespread distrust come from? Could it be that they hear the likes of Hillary, Jesse, Al, Nancy, Oprah, Sean and a host of liberal losers always telling them that the feds can not be trusted?

Then, when it was clear that many many more would die if they stayed, did any one of these losers step up to the plate and let their "constituents" know that this is one time they should believe the feds? NO! Not one!!

So if distrust toward those in authority is what prevented many from evacuating before the storm, and that same distrust is what kept so many behind to die after the floods, then it stands to reason that those who fostered such distrust and let it fester long after the disaster (in fact, fed it!) ... it seems, they are to blame for thousands of deaths, if in fact they number in the thousands.

Like lemmings, I think they were led over the cliff by the cowards who conveniently step out of the way every time it gets dangerous, and let the lemmings take the fall. Hillary, Jesse, Al, Nancy, Oprah ... please step forward and take your bows! You have just cost thousands their lives! And you all deserve the credit and the just rewards for your deeds!

I hope your 15 minutes of fame is worth their lives!

Now, white Christian republicans all over this nation are opening their hearts, their homes and their wallets to help those in need while this bunch simply opens their mouths and regurgitates the same senseless vile that caused this tragedy to begin with!

May God Bless the victims, their families, and those who will provide help.

May God do whatever He wants with the bigmouths and the bigots!

Katrina breeds opportunism!

In the week following Hurricane Katrina, we witnessed awesome works of charity, outpourings of God’s love and faith beyond comprehension. Unfortunately, we also witnessed opportunism and greed at it’s worst!

While millions of Americans were opening their wallets, their hearts and their homes to the victims of this great natural disaster, the political opportunists chose this time, while bodies still floated down the streets of New Orleans and survivors still clung to life and hope in their attics, to point fingers, raise suspicion, attempt to divide America even further between black and white, Republican and Democrat and rich and poor.

At a time when America needs to be united the most, these political beasts, these career troublemakers, these opportunistic rabble-rousers chose to once again agitate the poor and divide the country.

When it became painfully obvious that people were dying because of their distrust of government and authority, some chose to create even more distrust. Some chose to see people die rather than encourage them to obey the authorities that were trying to save them.

The great majority of Americans were saddened and moved to tears and moved to action by the sights and sounds of this tragedy as they unfolded. Most responded with money, prayer, and encouragement for those in danger. Some responded with false accusations, and disdain for those in authority.

Is it any wonder that so many ignored the pleas to evacuate when there are leaders like this who play on the fears of the poor for their own personal gain and popularity?

It is time for these leaders to step aside. No, it is time for them to be pushed aside! It is time for America, all of America to shut them up! It is time to stop the finger pointing and start uniting Americans of all races and all creeds and all political leanings and all levels of financial success. Then we can truly see the dream of Martin Luther King come true. Then we will see America in action, working with each other instead of against one another.

I do not have to mention the names of these political beasts. They make sure their names are in the paper and on the news every day, always criticizing, never helping, and always pointing fingers at someone else when they might be the cause of the problem themselves. If you see them, shut them off. If you hear them, tune them out! If you encounter them, tell them off!

Work with one another to unite America in our efforts to help the victims of Katrina. Spend your time and your money wisely toward raising up the victims rather than tearing down the establishment. Together, we can bring a world of good out of the murky waters of this hurricane’s aftermath. Some would rather drag us further into the muck and mire.

United we stand, divided we fall! It is as true today as it was when first uttered!
