With New Orleans quickly degenerating into hell on earth, the evil pundits on both sides of the American political fence are wasting no time - at blaming each other for the problem, rather than getting the job done. People are dying and suffering right now, and people want to do interviews on talk radio about what to do. Give me a gumbo sized break.
I've actually heard some people say that George W. Bush's environmental policies made hurricane Katrina. Great, really helpful. Thanks for being a complete wing-nut. Why don't you whine some more about our president while people die and mutilate each other?
On the other side, I've heard people talk about God's wrath upon the corrupt and drug infested populace of the city beneath the sea. That's just dandy. Let's crawl back into the dark ages with your fundamentalist and fascist neo-con BS. A city is on the edge of the abyss, and you want to kick them off into it. How very Christian of you.
The extreme elements on both sides make me want to retch.
And to top it off our media has focused like a laser beam on all the negative goings on, while virtually ignoring the heroism and good people that are getting through it, and yes, making progress.
We can play the blame game all we want with this situation, but can we at least wait until the horror show ends? I've donated, probably more than I can afford; and I hope many more do. But in the mean time, I'm not going to waste one more ounce of energy to dignify the shameful debate that has prematurely raged while the sick and dying languish.
