18. The lack of response to the lack of response reinforced
the lack of response of the American people.

I would like to think that Americans could see the truth beamed into their homes via the tube and witness it for what it is.

If not, they need some help, apparently.

"Katrina and all of the neocon policies that turned a natural disaster into an unimmaginable catastrophe, represents THE biggest betrayal of America and Americans ever"

It's hard to imagine that this would be a divisive point. In fact, it seemed at the time to be a rallying point-- and the perfect opportunity to repair the damage that has been (intentionally) inflicted on the sense of ourselves as a nation, as interdependent.

Who does it serve if we are afraid to be honest about the issues? Who is the imagined audience that we are afraid to alienate or offend? The American public could not be more alienated-- they deserved to be offended by what they saw in NO and by the implications.....

Isn't the American public who Democrats want to reach?

(thanks to you, momcat, and GPV for your work-- amazing. and that organizational structure you created could be useful for AHQ)
