Hurricane Katrina continues to be the greatest disaster in American history (excluding, of course, the entire Bush presidency) and the rest of the nation seems to have forgotten.
Just a couple of weeks ago people actually partied on Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras while large portions of New Orleans and Mississippi still look like something out of a post-apocalyptic nightmare.
Everyone that is interviewed who lost property, family, or friends in the filthy waters back in September are livid and demanding help from anyone who will listen.
But their faces are few and far between in the American media. Their voices are drowned out by trivia and noise and there seems to be nothing to do and no one to do it when it comes to helping thousands still be victimized by official stupidity.
Every time I see a story sandwiched between Oscar dress coverage and sports scores,I wonder how I would react if I was in these people's shoes. I've stated before that the only thing that has kept me from extremely effective and extremely violent opposition to the criminals in charge of our country is the loss of my personal freedom that would eventually follow. I don't want to live in a cage and I don't want to die right now, so I remain peaceful.
But how would I feel if I was standing in the ruins of my home which the insurance I've been paying for religiously for years now refuses to cover, having lost members of my family because the government sat on their asses and let them die?
How much would I feel like I had to lose? How long before I decided if life as I knew it was over , then someone was sure as hell was going to pay for the negligence that led to this shitty mess?
How long until some angry men or women, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers decide to make it blood for blood?

Bush and the rest of the ruling class should be very nervous. The Congress and Senate, FEMA and every other alphabet organizations from the NSA to the IRS should be taking notice of the growing rage of all of who aren't part of the elite. We are the ones who have built this nation into what it is. We work hard and are honest. We are what America should be. And finally, the thought that should make the our pampered and cowardly "leaders" wake in a cold sweat at night, we are the ones you trained in deadly arts, sent to fight, then forgot about. Our government sits on a powderkeg and the sparks are swirling in a growing wind.
I'm saying it now and I'm deadly serious. An incredible change must take place in the months and years to come, one that will change the cloyingly corrupt business as usual.
Or else, one day soon:
Blood for blood.PS,To the NSA, FBI, DOD, Secret Service or anyone else looking in:Do your jobs and STOP THESE CRIMINALS, or else we will.This may sound like a threat against the current administration and the government of the United States.You're goddamned right.It is.
