Bush creates Katrina in his image

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | No one knew. When we elected this man to be President, we didn't really understand the magnitude of his power.

He created Katrina in his own form and directed her to devastate and destroy that most innocent of cities, New Orleans.

Don't be distracted by the storm passing through and causing death and destruction in Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama. The real target was always New Orleans

But it wasn't just the Big Easy he was after. He intentionally trapped and isolated the poor Blacks of the city. Don't believe me? Listen to Rap Singer Kanye West. "Bush doesn't care about black People." Jesse Jackson blamed Bush because "…There are no African Americans in that circle." Referring to the disaster team I suppose. I'm sure The Reverend knows that Bush has more Blacks in higher places in his administration than any Democrat in history. Bush even appointed more Blacks than the first Black President, Bill Clinton. Guess that says it all!

Never mind that New Orleans:

1. Was sitting in the bottom of an ever sinking fish bowl for its entire existence. What did the leaders of the state and city do to plan for an emergency like this? What did any of the previous 42 Presidents do about this inevitable event?

2. Had 5 to 7 days warning before Katrina hit. 9/11 had no warning. Yet Mayor Guliani and Governor Pataki were all over it, right from the get go.

3. Disaster revealed a major failure of The Governor of Louisiana and the mayor of NO to enact their own Louisiana Disaster Plan of 1/2000 "…School and Municipal busses, Government-owned vehicles, and vehicles provided by volunteer agencies may be used to provide transportation for individuals who lack transportation and require assistance in evacuation." WHAT THE HECK WERE THESE BUSSES DOING SITTING IN YOUR PARKING LOTS WHILE YOUR CITIZENS WERE DROWNING, STARVING AND DYING, GOVERNER BLANCO AND MAYOR NEVINS? They say a picture in the Post Office is worth a thousand Congressional hearings. http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/050901/480/flpc21109012015

4. Had many citizens that had cars and CHOSE to sit out the hurricane and floods at home.

5. Became a hotbed of a few violent psychotics that shot at medical helicopters trying to aid the sick.

6. Became a haven for murder, rape and electronic and jewelry theft.

7. Disaster had engendered hardly any criticism about Louisiana leaders or self anointed prophets as to the Black on Black murders, rapes and assaults.

8. The protectors of the USA in general and the special prophets of all blacks, Reverends Al and Jesse, and Rapper Kanye failed to protect it's NO brethren by urging the governor and mayor to raise and fortify levies, build a storm ocean wall AKA Galveston Texas, or help create and execute the evacuation of its citizens. Prophets are supposed to predict the future, not whine about the past. Besides, you should never point a finger before you lend a hand.

9. And Governor Barbour of Mississippi disdained the warnings of our greatest self-anointed environmentalist ever, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. And those wind farms you objected to by Hyannis Port, home to the Kennedy compound? Better fuel up the private jet before the next fuel increase! Now THAT'S conservation!

10. Was abandoned by 200 police that walked off the job.

11. Citizens STILL refuse to leave their homes in spite of rescuers begging them to leave for their own survival.

12. Board of Commissioners used millions and millions to build casinos and ignore the levees and funding of evacuation plans.

The one legitimate critic against Bush is that he and his people should have gotten water to those people isolated by the floods. There IS no excuse for the delay in a commodity that could have been EASILY air dropped. He admitted his and his agencies lack of execution.

But as President Clinton just said, the time to examine the failures are in the future. Now is the time to save lives and families, recognizing that this is still the beginning of the rescue effort, not the end. Winners dwell on the next challenge, not victory or defeat.




The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings. Help the Katrina victims have a better chance at succeeding in the future.
