AMERICAN TRIAGE

MOTHER NATURE HAD THE HOMELAND LOOKING INTO THE MIRROR THIS WEEK. WE DIDN'T SEEM TO BE THE FAIREST OF THEM ALL.
WE SAW A NATION WHERE SEGREGATION...BOTH EPIDERMAL AND ECONOMIC ...WAS ALIVE AND PROSPERING, WHILE SOME COUNTRYMEN WERE STRUGGLING TO STAY ALIVE BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T PROSPEROUS.
UNLIKE THE BOLTS THAT CREATED THE 9/11 DISASTER, THIS MONSTER WAS WELL ADVERTISED. THE ONLY QUESTION WAS CATEGORY FOUR OR FIVE.

THE PRESIDENT DECLARED THE GULF STATES A DISASTER AREA TWO DAYS IN ADVANCE OF THE STORM. GOOD CALL.
48 FULL HOURS.

THOSE WITH THE RESOURCES LEFT TOWN. THOSE WITHOUT WERE LEFT TO HOPE FOR THE BEST. THE WORST HAPPENED.
DEATH, AND SUFFERING FOLLOWED UGLY LOOTING... BY PETROLEUM CPO's.

THE WORLD'S RICHEST, MOST POWERFUL NATION COULDN'T STOP THE FORCES OF NATURE. BUT IT COULD HAVE SHOWN IT'S GOOD NATURE BY EVACUATING THOSE LEFT BEHIND.
THE ILL, THE POOR, THE FOOLISH, THE FETUSES, THE TERRI SCHAIVOS, AND THE ONES OUR PRESIDENT NEVER LEAVES BEHIND...THE CHILDREN.

NOW, OUR TAX-CUT -ADMINISTRATION IS RELYING ON CHARITY TO DO THE GOVERNMENT'S JOB.
OUR 'BRING 'EM ON ' LEADERSHIP IS, HELMET-IN-HAND, RELYING UPON THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS.

pretty deep. It's easy to have opinions when you are on the outside looking in.

I posted an article from my local newspaper on the Hugo Chavez pat Robetson 'thing'. Very interesting not too well known facts. Too long to repeat here so, go to my blog and read it when you have the time.

SEEMS LIKE NEARLY EVERY DAY IS A NATIONAL I.Q. TEST. A WHOLE LOT OF FOLKS ARE STILL NEEDING THINKING-SKILL-ENHANCEMENT.
THANKS. WILL DO.

THIS CAME FROM JB's E-MAIL

I love your blogs! Although I loved your political commentary, I most enjoyed your bio. I should point out that in certain distant ways our histories have converged. For instance, one of your ancestors invented humming and pool splashing; well, I have used both products. Needless to say, if there is any sort of compensation due to him or his heirs for the use of either product I will deny knowledge of both.

In addtion, another ancestor of yours has the unique distinction of not casting a shadow. I don't know if being invisible is exactly the same phenomenon, but over the last several years I have become invisible to young women. Yet, while visiting my aging mother in the assisted living facility just a few months ago, a geriatric female resident proceeded to flirt with me. At the ripe young age of 60, I confess to not finding that a turn on. Perhaps when I am 87 I will be mature enough to apprediate it.

Once again I love your stuff. Keep it coming!

THIS ALSO CAME FROM JB.

I completely overlooked the most amazing coincidence. I too am lactose tolerant, although that tolerance does not extend to the current administration. I suspect you are with me on that also. What a small world!

THE PRESIDENT CUT AND RECUT TAXES, SPENT NEARLY $300,000,000,000 IN IRAQ, WANTS TO CUT TAXES FURTHER AND REPEAL THE ESTATE TAX. NOW HE ASKS FOR CHARITY.
HE RUSHED TO FLORIDA WHEN THE FEEDING TUBE WAS BEING PULLED FROM A BRAIN-DEAD WOMAN. HE OPPOSES STEM CELL RESEARCH AND A WOMAN'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE. HE PROMOTES A 'NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND' POLICY. ALL VERY PRO-LIFE, NO?
THEN, WHEN REAL LIVING PEOPLE ARE IN PERIL, HE CONTINUES VACTIONING FOR TWO FULL DAYS.
IF HE'S NOT RESPONSIBLE, WHY DID HE OFFER A DILUTED, CONDITIONAL APOLOGY? POLL RATINGS PERHAPS?

Tax cuts are a really good thing. That means I get to keep more of my money.

YOU CAN GET EVEN BIGGER TAX CUTS IF THE GOVERNMENT ELIMINATES SCHOOLS, MILITARY, SOCIAL SECURITY, INFRASTRUCTURE, HEALTH DEPARTMENT, FDA, MEDICARE, NATIONAL GUARD, YOU GET THE PICTURE.
ENJOY YOUR TAX CUT.
WELCOME TO THE NEO-THIRD WORLD.

NOTE:
IF CAPS ANNOY YOU, YOU'RE A BIT ON THE EDGE.GREEDY PEOPLE ANNOY ME.
