I love the guy walking his dogs. Make him your next President! [:D]

Katrina seems to be less severe than first thought. Now downgraded to a Cat 2, hope it doesn't cause too much damage over there. Best of luck.

It's not looking that way this morning. The mayor of New Orleans just called for the complete evacuation of the city. There is massive flooding everywhere. The city of Gulfport was essentially leveled.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!

We just got word the leevy broke in New Orleans. Jesus.

I haven't noticed any Mercedes yet.

A crushed BMW and what looked like a Land Rover were the only cars I could make out.

I never knew that New Orleans was so far below sea level[:0]

It's shaped like a bowl. The levees are the top edges of the bowl, and they keep the sea out. We currently have tens of thousands of people pouring into Houston. The whole thing is amazing. I'm trying to get on a volunteer crew to go out there, but they don't want anyone other then the Guard there right now.

Where are all those on whom you worship (Jesus, the Holy Spirit, others idols) beside God (Allah)? Without a doubt, they have failed you. But if you cry to God (Allah) Alone, He Will Hear your cry and Remove the harm afflicting you.

I saw the disaster shots in Iraq and the disaster shots in New Orleans. Disaster is disaster, regardless of who is afflicted. It is no longer okay to feel unsympathetic towards those who suffered disaster at the hands of our president.

They suffered disaster at the hands of the Americans; the Americans suffered disaster at the Command of God.

I hope Americans and George W. Bush ("holy man"), Pat Robertson, Falwell, and all those warring Christians take this multitude of disaster as a warning to stop unlawful and illegal bloodshed in the middle east.

This is nothing more than a natural disaster--not retribution from some angry god. It really sucks for all those people, but hurricanes, tsunamis, tornados, etc. happen all the time.
And, if your god is looking out for Muslims so well, why didn't he just stop the US from invading Iraq in the first place? Is he a bad planner? Stupid? Or just an asshole?
Your religious fanatacism is small-minded and, quite frankly, scary. Please check yourself in to the nearest mental health center 'cause you are one crazy mofo.[xx(]
