LTTE to both my congrress and fish wrap


I was just wondering, is anybody in Congress going to call Mr Brown to the Carpet? He lied under oath, in regards to his authority as FEMA director, as well as when State of Emergencies were declared. Governor Blanco declared the state of Emergency (and federalized it) on Friday, yet Mr Brown is telling us he did not have that authority until Sunday?

The documents are out there for all to see, but I am amazed that nobody reminded Mr Brown that he was under oath, and perjury as well as contempt of Congress are crimes.

I am also amazed that he was hired on as a consultant whose job is to investigate himself? Ok... I guess it the culture of corruption is so thick that they believe they can get away with it. When oh when will the people rise?

Sincerely,

**********

1. Listenng on CPAN right now.
I can't shake my head anymore or it will twist off.

Can we work on the land grab in NO instead? I've a Green on the ground that is trying to keep stuff open.

Not trying to hijack the Dems. Nancy did the party proud today, staying out of the chest-beating.

Don't be amazed. Be ready. :hi:

4. You know about the Blackwater mercernaries on the ground,
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 02:42 AM by sfexpat2000
about the diaspora, about the suspension of the "prevailing wage" -- you see all that, right?

I understood when we went into Iraq, that EVERY SINGLE THING WE DID THERE WE WOULD BRING HOME.

It's home, now, RIGHT NOW.

sorry to shout.

8. Okay. Mentally grabbing your hand.
This is where it comes home.

In the next week or so, we have to take this on.

But not tonight. I'll be back. And thanks for being here.

3. Maybe if it gets really bad for Bush and they need to in order to
help the poor mans ratings.I do not think, however, they would do that out of pure justice or because it is the right thing to do.Something or someone has to be at stake in order for them to hang one of their own out to dry. :sarcasm:

6. Right now they are trying to keep seats in Congress, looking
to 2006.

They think that the way they steal elections won't cover it, and they may have to be good anyway.

They're wrong.

Get thee to the Elections Forum.

We can turn blue but it won't matter unless our ELECTIONS ARE SECURE.

9. Please let's remember this.
That's all.

Sure, there's analysis to do.

But the most important thing is, let's remember this, the rape of our democracy. In the middle of the trauma, take a step back.

Because these evil bastards EXCEL in getting us to just forget.

Stay with us. Please stay with us.

And plan, carefully, who you need to consult, who you want to check in with, where you need to go to pool your resources.

We are the last superpower left on this lovely green planet. We are. All of us troubly people who still think, feel, think.

11. Hey -- I didn't mean the US
I meant every one of us. (I'm stealing this idea from someone but can't remember -- Chomsky maybe? After the US, the people are the greatest superpower someone said.)

Affected? If I wasn't affected by watching a media industry record our homegrown genocide, I don't know what to call it. Yes, I lost people in NO. And every person lost in NO was my loss.

God or something forgive me, us, for that. And for all the people who we assume will get help AND WHO HAVE NOT AND WHO WILL NOT.

God or something forgive me for my stupidity, believing that my dear friends or family would get help from this misAdministration.

As a former rescue worker I am fuming becuase I know the capabilities that are suposed to exit here and were not used... I did it in a place were these resources we could never dream of them... so yes I am fuming

13. Handing you this duct tape.
We can do better and will do better. I don't even want to open my mouth.

We have to, and we will. We can do better than this.
