1) Yeah, it's a real tribute to the inherent moral superiority of the private sector that after a hurricane a 100,000 square foot Walmart has water and soft drinks on hand. How do they do it?

2) Bill Clinton actually said, "I think we did a good job of disaster management." ? My god, does his ego know no bounds?

3) Choose one. Either the President of the United States should personally draw evacuation plans for every city, town, and hamlet in the country, or that should be left to the states and municipalities themselves. In the hundreds of millions of gallons of words that have poured out since Katrina, I think I've heard one person suggest it was a federal responsibility to evacuate people from New Orleans before the storm hit.

4) Choose one. Either Poor George W. Bush's hands were tied by red tape and incompetent, foot-dragging local officials, or Bill Clinton couldn't gallivant around the country declaring disasters at his whim. Actually, both are wrong, since Clinton had to wait for a state to request disaster relief, but the Homeland Security Act removed the requirement.

Hey, Riley :)

I always forget this. They've done a good job of keeping that forgotten.

Compassionate Conservatism in Action

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

The Reverend Al Sharpton

  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
