WHERE ARE THE DEM CONGRESS AND SENATE PEOPLE!!!
Where are they???? Seriously, it's as if the earth opened up and swallowed them. Not one person out speaking about the peace movement or Cindy, calling for a more timely response to the NO disaster, calling for a halt to gouging gasoline prices, the list goes on....

SHAME SHAME SHAME

On the hurricane, requesting Red Cross donations.

2. It is bizarre
It has been bizarre for a year. Since Kerry just let Bush beat the snot out of him with the swift boaters. We are living in extraordinary times and not word one from the dems. Bizarre

5. Isn't the whole govt pretty much on vacay
this month? It wasn't just the boyking. If they were really interested in helping put this train wreck back on track they'd hang around and do some politickin' while boyking fiddles.

6. I called DNC, and Senators -- please do the same. What do we lose...
by making this political? Imagine if there were such a failure of governance in Britain? We are the political opposition in this country, and those in charge have utterly failed us in this tragedy. If we were a parliamentary system (and had a functioning, responsible press)this government would fall.

9. It WOULD Be Nice To Know How Many Gave Up Their Labor Day Vacation Plans..
and came back to Washington, or down to NO, to assess the situation and get the help out there... like NOW!!!

I don't expect too much from Republicans, but If I find out that some Dem's Labor Day B-B-Q was more important to them than this...

I'll do MY best to MAKE SURE EVERYBODY KNOWS IT!!!

:mad: :wtf: :mad:

10. I wish every member would contact them immediately.
that would be over 75,000 emails right off the bat. Is the activist headquarters doing this? They are so good at this, and wasn't it when someone or some company got "DU'd" they couldn't help but notice it? I'm still fairly new here, but I have taken note of the power that is behind the people in this site alone. It's a lot to be proud of.

We have no representation from the administration, we ought to demand it from them. They ought to be threatened with their jobs if they don't show up in an emergency like this. If they were employed ANYWHERE else they would be out of a job!

11. I was just ranting to a friend
that isn't there some Democrat that will stand up and say enough - for God's sake - there is absolutely no fucking leadership in this country on either side. Someone needs to stand up to this murderous administration and put a stop to them ENOUGH IS ENOUGH....let's try to figure how much death and destruction the freak in chief is responsible for

1. Most executions under his governorship
2. 3,000 on 9/11 - LIHOP or MIHOP whichever they should have stopped it
3. How many dead in Afghanistan
4. close to 2,000 Americans, 10s of thousand Iraqis
5. People dead from inability to be rescued because money diverted to prepare NOLA for a major hurricanes to Iraq and his freaking rich friends in tax cuts.

WHEN WILL SOMEONE STOP THEM....

14. So I didn't know who Henry Lee Lucas is/was
Edited on Wed Aug-31-05 09:23 PM by never_get_over_it
so I did a google and there are some articles there that the guy killed a lot of people - so do you think that Lucas did kill a lot of people - and that Lucas is the ONLY death row prisoner that the freak in chief ever gave clemency to because the murdering freak in chief admires the murderous Lucas - just asking.....

Jesus on edit I just went back and read this further and the numbers are pretty varied but authorities seemed pretty convinced that this Lucas freak killed at least 100 - and this is the ONLY guy that the freak gave clemency to - OH MY GOD - is there anything that the freak in chief gets right....

12. I was wondering too. Is it possible that like many times
in the past Dems have stood up to lead but no media covers it? That was my first thought, but I see no threads from Dem leaders here or on Kps.
