Exactly.but the folks that sat around waiting for the government to do something are just a product of too many years of doing little for themselves.

Why not a 5 hr spin on the ones that did not leave and don't regret it because they had a plan in place that had nothing to do with the government, just good common sense during a bad time? That my friend won't further anyones agenda, won't help the state get all that billions of dollars and won't sell space to the sponsers. Rev Farakhan said he would have proof to show that the levees were blown and would produce it on 10-4-05 so where is it? More media hype and someones agenda being pushed, so the poor, poor, pitiful me crowd will get another handout, which will never stop.
I don't think I am being spun by the media, Tubby. First of all, I may not be a Republican but I'm also not a Democrat. The horror of Louisana was the deadly breaking of the levies and the flooding. That's not about being Democrat or Republican or bad leadership or people who won't help themselves.tubbythetuba said:The MAIN thing to remember, MsNomer, is that you are being used, through Media/'Crat leadership/Black "Leadership"/Liberals....just like the poor people are being used. The objective is the next mid-term and the next Presidential Election. If you believe that someone in WA, be it Bush, FEMA, or the Easter Bunny is responsible for local problems, you are wrong. Seems funny that the rest of the Gulf Coast didn't have these problems....maybe the currupt/inept leadership in LA and N.O. didn't know what the hell they were doing and the national Democratic "Leadership" saw yet another chance to stick it to Republicians with the never ending help from their buddies in the media. Funny how the truth always gets out, isn't it?? :roll:

I am for the Pledge WITH the "under God" part left in!
ABORTION INCLUDING 22 WEEK PARTIAL BIRTH.
I do not believe late-term abortion is okay, except to save the life of the mother. As to early term -- well, I think you have to walk in a pregnant woman's shoes to make that decision, and I have not had to go there.
NO PRAYER IN SCHOOL
I don't think that would be a bad thing, even though I do think most people think it crosses the line and goes too far.
NO TEN COMMANDMENTS IN ANY PUBLIC BUILDING
I would be totally in favor of the Ten Commandments displayed all over the place. You don't really have to be religious to need a helpful reminder of the difference between right and wrong.
BELIEVES THE US CONSTITUTION IS A LIVING DOCUMENT
SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
THE SECOND AMENDMENT SHOULD BE DELETED.
Never! I am scared of guns myself, but I TOTALLY support everyone's right to carry a gun, anywhere, anytime, any place. We are all safer if the only people who have guns are not the criminals.
THE DEATH PENALTY IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
I have never made up my mind about the death penalty. Some people deserve to die for their crimes; some people have been wrongly convicted and executed for their crimes.
THAT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION SINCE 1982 HAS HELPED
THE POOR BLACK FAMILIES INCLUDING THE ONES IN
NEW ORLEANS GET OUT OF POVERTY, AND THAT IT IS REALLY WORKING WELL.
I do believe in affirmative action, so I guess that makes me a bleedin' heart LIBERAL. . . . :roll:
