This was briefly referred to today on the KOS SiteCheers and Jeers Friday but I feel it needed more attention.

Bush is preaching the gospel of compasionate conservatism "America is a compassionate and generous nation" and will be providing billions of dollars in aid. BS

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE??!!!  What about KATRINA?  My family is personally suffering because of Bush's irresponsible budget cuts to law enforcement and Departments of Children and Families.

Please stop, Mr. President. Your generosity is killing us.

PS This is my first diary entry and I will be attending a peace forum in the heart of Gator Nation tomorrow.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    We're all pretty crazy some way or other; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is just a setting on the dryer.

    What's New? This bit was amusing:

    OPENNESS: THE MARCH MEETING OF THE AMERICAN PHYSICAL SOCIETY.

    The commitment of physicists to the principle of openness was tested this very morning in Denver at the APS March meeting, as it has been every year for 108 years.  Roy Masters, author of "God Science and Free Energy from Gravity," was to deliver "Electricity from Gravity" at 9:36 a.m.  Anyone can deliver a paper at the March Meeting.  What if Masters actually succeeded in using up our gravity to keep the lights on?  Not to worry.

    ENERGY: YOU SHOULD WORRY ABOUT WHAT BUSH IS DOING IN BRAZIL.

    Even as Roy Masters was talking about generating energy from
    gravity, George W. Bush was cutting a deal with President Luiz Ignacio Lula da Silva of Brazil to use ethanol.  It made about as much sense.  We've been through this before: Brazil makes ethanol from sugar cane.  We grown corn.  Corn is food.  The diversion of food to fuel, even at today's trivial level, has already inflated the price of corn in Mexico, sending Mexicans north for better paying jobs.  Toxic waste from fermentation of sugar cane is dumped in the Amazon.  We don't have an Amazon.  Because the energy balance is precarious, sugar cane must be harvested in Brazil by hand.  That condemns vast numbers of laborers to serfdom. We don't have serfs - yet.  What we do have is lots of people who are capable of running the numbers for the President to see if ethanol is any kind of a solution.  None of these people seem to be in the White House.

    That so called "aid" is mostly in military aid to Colombia, which is used to purchase planes, weapons etc from US manufactures for the Drug Wars and enrich the military industrial complex.

    is on their Pax Americana agenda and they can't afford to let Chavez get too popular. We have not been a compassionate caring nation for some forty years now. It's all bullshit. Our government has to take care of it's own first. Katrina is a good example what happens when you have corporations doing relief aid for our citizens, and providing for our troops in Iraq. They are bastards all. Keep blogging this or writing to news papers or Congress. Don't stop fighting.

  •  I keep hoping that... (0+ / 0-)

    I am going to read somewhere that Mr. Bush is going to "re-import" all that democracy he keeps "exporting" to the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. Among the things I would like to see him working on is free elections in the United States. I wish he would spend some time on de-fusing the class war in the United States that was originally ignited by his neocon buddies. I wish that he would try to persuade his fundamentalist Christian friends that America is not a Christian nation. It would be nice if he gave us a little help in re-establishing the middle class in our country.

    You know what would be really nice?  It would be just terrific if George W. Bush could learn to tell the truth and teach that skill to everyone else in his Administration. It would be so nice if we had some transparency in our government.

    Probably the nicest thing of all would be if ol' George would just keep his effing hands off of our Constitution and just let the damned thing function as our Founders intended.

    OK: end of ridiculously naive rant.

    planes are already in Merida Mexico along with untold numbers of Secret Service. Just wondering how much this little tour has cost the taxpayers.

    Al parecer es tanto el miedo del presidente más poderoso del mundo que fue necesario que 12 aviones militares estadounidenses llegaran a suelo mexicano, entre las que destacan aeronaves tipo Galaxy, Navy, Sikorki y Last Hawk.

    ...the four Brazilian troops killed in Iraq?

    That's Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid to you, Mr. Bush.
