Subject: What a crock

what a bunch of dribble...there are many looters who want nothing more than to cause trouble anywhere they can find it. Those are the ones taking hard goods from the stores, tv's clothes etc. There are relief agencies coming to their aid if they want to find it, it will be there. Americans are pouring millions of dollars into the red cross and salvation army coffers. Also, major corporations are making million dollar donations at a time to bring relief to the folks in the gulf states. This is not a time to politicize a catastrophe, its a time for all americans to rise to a higher level and do what we always do, meet the needs of those who need it.

My Reply
Basically, you are telling me to shut up, to keep quite about the culpability of Bush and the republicans. .

Politics CAUSED the disaster, but what's the point of talking to a hypnotized, blind, sleeping sheep.

And damned if I'm going to shut up. Why don't you wake up and take responsibility for the a**holes you helped elect. Wake up. You've been fooled.
