Heartless, Incompetent, Criminal Slime

The result of the Republican reorganization of government: U.S. not ready for disasters.

Most American cities and states remain unprepared for catastrophes, a government analysis concludes, calling the shortcomings in emergency planning a cause “for significant national concern.”

Their contractors rip the country off: Documents Expose Sept. 11 Fraud.

The lead investigators for the FBI and the Federal Emergency Management Agency told AP that the plan to prosecute KEI for those thefts stopped as soon as it became clear in late summer 2002 that an FBI agent in Minnesota had stolen a crystal globe from ground zero.

That prompted a broader review that ultimately found 16 government employees, including a top FBI executive and Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, had such artifacts from New York or the Pentagon.

They are looters and should be shot.

They don’t care if someone dies in service, dead soldiers are just “numbers”:

Question: Tony, American deaths in Iraq have reached 2,500. Is there any response or reaction from the President on that?

MR. SNOW: It’s a number, and every time there’s one of these 500 benchmarks people want something…

That’s right, Mr. Snow, they want to know when it’s going to end.

Apparently supporting the troops doesn’t include money for Fort Sam Houston to pay its utility bills.

The Republicans in Congress hold meaningless press events on our dime at the Capitol to pretend they care. Stupid worthless votes are taken to provide campaign ad footage with public funds.

A plague on both the Houses!

In Memoriam

Friday Cat Blogging


[Editor: She survived a raccoon as a kitten and a getting hit by a car as a yearling. She was too skittish to take to the vet so the only help I could ever offer was antibiotics in food near her “hiding place”. She was approximately 9 years old, born after Opal but she survived multiple hurricanes. The car accident damaged her pelvis so she was never a mother but she was a babysitter for the younger cats. She disappeared for a couple of days and I found her in her “hiding place”. She will be missed.
