It's nice to know that if a disaster hits where I live, I will have to wait 4-5 or more days for food and water to arrive.

"The death toll from Katrina is likely to be higher than 9/11, but most of its victims will be black and poor, and I doubt we'll wage a war on poverty"

Tjaha... there you go.

Good article.

One thing that the president needs to do is set a temporary cap on gas prices. To inform the free-market conservative, Nixon had to do it in the seventies, and the oil industry is the closest thing we have to a monopoly. Is there price gauging? Of course. I don't support it, I feel that it's no different than the looting that's been going on.

KING: Anderson Cooper in Biloxi, Mississippi and you were an angry man today, Anderson at what?

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN CORRESPONDENT: I wouldn't say I'm angry, you know. I think I'm tired of hearing the politicians say that, you know, they understand the frustration of people down here. To me, you know, it's not frustration. It's not that people are frustrated.

It's that people are dying. I mean there are people dying. They're drowning to death and they drown in their living rooms and their bodies are rotting where they drowned and there are corpses in the street being eaten by rats and this is the United States of America.

I think it's time for a fucking revolution.


I want to know who thinks this is okay, I really, really do. Because as soon as I find someone who thinks that the behaviour of this administration is acceptable needs to be put in a loony bin.

I'm SO TIRED of this.

If this doesn't wake Americans up to the fact that we need better government, then we deserve whatever happens to us.

I'm dead serious.

No fucking kidding. This is completely ridiculous.


We're supposed to be the best country in the world and we have people living like fucking animals, dying in the streets and shooting each other for water and diapers for their children, and our government is nowhere to be found.

My aunt has a bumper stucker that says "Where Is the Outrage?", which she's had since not long after 9/11, I think.

Well, Aunt Suzanne, I think we finally found it.

I feel sick. I'm over here in the middle of freaking Africa and I'm watching all this happen and I'm thinking that, wait a minute, this looks like it could be happening over HERE! The complete lack of coordination, the poverty, the lawlessness, the desperation, the poverty, the black faces crying out for help. It's just...I don't even know what to say.
