RE: Criminality is at the heart of the Bush Administration
I do fault this administration on several points; their failure to control the borders, and their runanwy spending. That doesn't mean I want to bring them down.
Howver, I do not promote undeserved criticism, even of my opponents. The whinning over the FEMA response was grossly overblown. Some of the blame goes to FEMA, but the greatest portion of the blame lies at the local incompetence. For comparison, look at Missippi--same hurricane and the same Gulf Coast. Massive destruction, but it was sucessfully handles. Why? Look to the state and local officials.
Hell, the Mayor didn't even use his own emergency plan. The evacuation plan required something like 70 hours, and yet wasn't started until 24 hours before the hurricane hit.
Are you confident that her simple cry for "help" fulfilled the legal responsibility? I am not at all certain that that is the case. She seemed to positively refuse to understand the severity of the problem. As crieitcal as some of you guys are--you would be crying " Impeach Bush" if he violated the posse comitatus act. Damned if he did, damned if he didn't--thats an honest argument!
ps. What do you do with the glycerin that is produced in the biodiesel process?
