Katrina Commentary From Around The Blogosphere

The Minor Fall, The Major Lift
We're happy for every family that makes it out okay. And if you don't mind, we think that's about all we're going to do on The Crescent City today, except to add that we hope that fat fuck Dennis Hastert suffers some kind of rupture the next time Tom DeLay stuff his fist up his ass to operate him. Okay, have a good long weekend, kids. We're planning to give blood; if you can, do the same.

Found @ Huffington Post
It is reported that black hurricane victims in New Orleans have begun eating corpses to survive. Four days after the storm, thousands of blacks in New Orleans are dying like dogs. No-one has come to help them.

I am a sixty-four year old African-American.

New Orleans marks the end of the America I strove for.

I am hopeless. I am sad. I am angry against my country for doing nothing when it mattered

Vote…register others to vote…volunteer at the polls…monitor your elected officials. Keep a copy of your local paper’s front page from today…blow it up real big and print it on a huge poster. Take that to the polls with you. The next time you see a W'04 sticker on a car, roll down your window and shout SHAME!

Store bottled water in your home. Have enough to last a month. If you do not have space, partner with some folks that live close by and maximize space.

Store canned food. Vegetables and other goods can be purchased in cans. Have enough on hand for a month. Calculate the number of people by a minimum of 2 meals per day.

Stock up on meds., first aid materials and any prescriptions…for a month. Get the shit online if you have to. People are dying from diabetic shock…may Gawd have mercy on us.

Stock up on pet food. These are also members of your family…get canned food.

Come up with an evacuation plan. Discuss it with your family and friends. Have a meet up point planned in advance. Have options and make sure everyone knows them.

Get a bike. Trust a bitch, get a motherfucking bike.

Get a weapon. A bitch hates guns, but my ass will have a baseball bat by sundown.

Get prepared and be proactive, because your government sure as shit won’t do it for you…

Now is the time to help our brothers and sisters in the Gulf. But don't loose sight of the fuck ups that exasperated this drama.

Remember and remind others.

Remember Katrina
