The long hot week is finally coming to a close. My humble little white trash town was battered yesterday by wicked storms. A forest of trees and power lines are down. One young woman was killed when a tree came crashing down on her car. Given the extent of the damage we're lucky more folks weren't seriously hurt. Now take this little tragedy and multiple by I dunno, 100 billion and it isn't even half of what happened to New Orleans. You remember New Orleans don't you?...home of Mardi Gras, Dixieland jazz, the Saints....wiped off the map due to the negligence and incompetence of the Federal, State and local government. New Orleans...where they now have more murders by 5am then your city does all day.....New Orleans where the government provides toxic trailers to its displaced residents.....NEVER forget how this government handled New Orleans during and after Hurricane Katrina. Never forget how so called a compassionate conservative President left a city's poor residents to drown....never forget his empty promises to rebuild the levees, the infrastructure, the homes...lies, lies and more lies. How has this idiot in chief not been impeached?
From the floods of New Orleans to the floods of NYC...gonna cost buckets of money to repair the NYC subway system:http://www.nydailynews.com/news/2007/08/10/2007-08-10_theres_no_way_to_stop_it.html
Could this be Black Friday? After a rough day yesterday on Wall St., the Dow sinks again today:http://breakingnews.nypost.com/dynamic/stories/W/WALL_STREET?SITE=NYNYP&SECTION=HOME
Personally, I'm sick of the media overreacting every time the Dow sneezes. There's still a crapload of people making money in the market. They just aren't making as much today as they were a week ago. Be a cold day in hell before you catch me weeping for the rich.
Can we change the rules on the Presidential election? No campaigning till January 1 of the election year.

Wanna make sure our consumer goods are safe? Quit doing business with the damn human rights violating Chinese! Penalize companies that ship manufacturing overseas. Demand greater quality and regulatory control. Of course, if we were a little more like the Chinese the dude running FEMA during Hurricane Katrina would have been executed....I guess there is a bright side to everything.
