Rome Burns While Nero Fiddles (Or Plucks)



Here are a few photos, courtesy of David Corn's blog, davidcorn.com, and the AP news service. In the days since hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf coast region, the president has found a little time to relax and fool around a bit, "strum a lil' gitar", as he might say, and get in a little more "me" time; kind of interesting for a guy who has just come back from vacation and riding his bike all over the place down in Crawford, where he could find no time to meet with Cindy Sheehan. Also, during this week, Condi Rice was spotted purchasing some new shoes at Beragamo's in New York ( a citizen cried "shame" at her for shoe shopping rather than helping to handle the current crisis in New Orleans and the Gulf region, and this female citizen was hustled off by the Secret Service), and she also has had time this week to take in the musical "Spamalot". Apparently, Dick Cheney has still been vacationing up in Wyoming. Do you see a pattern here, people? Do you realize that these people do not care about you?

Is America going to finally wake up to the lies and deceptions that have been put upon them, and that they have bought into for the last 5 years?

bravo. thank you for your post. more americans need to know that this is happening. it is a travesty. we treat families in bagdad better than we treat American families in new orleans. if planes can drop bombs then why can't they drop water and food and medicine. and why do they appear first with rifles instead of food or water? Glad i found your blog. i'll visit often.

Have you made a donation to the American Red Cross yet?

Matter of fact, I did donate to the Red Cross a few days ago, which is a quicker response than I can say for much of the federal govt.

You should turn on the word verification function on your BLOG. It's located in the comments section in your settings. Why?
You're getting a lot of SPAM (i.e. SMOG).
Also, I'm happy you made a donation to the American Red Cross.
