It's kind of hard to offend anyone who's been here for a while.. .. as has been said there's a line that you can cross, but you have to look pretty hard for it .

But I did read the part that states no profanity, indecent or pornographic postings.

Along with no harassment and abusive & threating posts to other members.

I suggest then you read up on the rules old timer.
Oh oh... Look out now. You don't want to throw red meat to these carnivorous animals. The you-know-what will hit the fan...

So in honor of this, I hereby declare a new National Holiday. Our featured speaker at this inauguration of our new holiday is none other than Brownie, the ex-chief of The Arabian Horsebreeders Association, who gives Bush the brown eye and a black eye:

Ex-FEMA Chief Blames Administration


WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former FEMA Director Michael Brown, who lost his job because of Hurricane Katrina, said Tuesday his biggest regret a year later is that he wasn't candid enough about the lack of a coherent federal response plan.

"There was no plan. ... Three years ago, we should have done catastrophic planning," Brown said, charging that the Bush administration and his department head, Michael Chertoff, "would not give me the money to do that kind of planning."

As levees broke down at Katrina's strike against New Orleans and people were forced from their homes, Brown said he sought futilely to get the 82nd Airborne Division into the city quickly.

Appearing on NBC's "Today" show, he was asked about positive statements he had made at the time about how Washington would come through for the storm victims, rather than leveling with the country about how bad the situation actually was.

"Those were White House talking points," Brown replied. "And to this day, I think that was my biggest mistake."

Brown said that at many intervals during the week the storm hit, he found himself asking, "Where in the hell is the help?"

"I have to confess ... you want to protect the president when you're a political appointee," he said, "so you're torn between telling the absolute truth and relying on those talking points. To this day, that is my biggest regret. "

Brown said he had been made the scapegoat for the government's slow response "because I'm the low man on the totem pole." He said he thought that President Bush and Chertoff, the homeland security secretary, should have shared in the blame.

He denied that he lacked qualifications to direct the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"That's just baloney. I spent more time in my career in local government and in state government and in emergency management experience," Brown said. "But what I regret the most: I let the American public down. I am a fighter ... but for some reason, with Katrina crashing in on me, I didn't do it."
If the moron's in New Orleans were not smart enough to leave before the hurrican hit. Then the ones that were injured and killed got what they asked for.

Those that could some how afford a house but did not purchase insurance got what they deserved until they started receiving checks from our tax dollars.

The city and state should have stepped up prior to it hitting instead of waiting for the feds to bail them out.

After Katrina they should have turned NO into a giant land fill and not spent one dime to rebuild it.

"...respectful..." Good luck getting any of the kookberger contingent to recognize that word. They may demand you spell words correctly, but don't ask them what words like respectful mean.

The results of such idiocy can be seen in the faces of the followers of the liberal establishment in New Orleans.
In an unrelated context a letter to the editor the other day espoused the idea that raising the minimum wage would put too great a burden on businesses, especially smaller ones, so that the author's idea was to simply have "the government" send all minimum-wage earners a check - on a monthly basis - to make up the difference so they could be middle-income folks.

Trusting the government to make everything all right is like depending on a deranged and drunken pilot to land the plane safely. It might happen, but it won't be on purpose.

In the next few decades we'll be saying much the same thing about all the folks who are destitute because they trusted the government to provide for their retirement years.
