I merely pointed out that the administration felt it better to go on vacation and be in pictures with new guitars rather than responding to a crisis.
And your lumping me in with the rest, assuming that I think Brown did a great job. Fuck you and your assumptions. I'm not defending what our president was doing at the time at all. It'd save you a lot of trouble if you'd quit playing the political game, regardless of your denial of it.
So you want to be lumped together with Dios in the "it's their own fault so they deserve to die route?"
Once again, it's black and white for you, isn't it? What are you, fucking retarded? I like how you try to villainize me, but it's not going to work. Because I think that all parties are at fault and not just the government, this somehow makes me believe that they deserved to die? You're quite the assuming little fucker, aren't you?
Social security? I was unaware this had anything to do with NO.
It doesn't, but it seems the concept of "being responsible for your own life" flew right over your head, which is the entire point of my post, but instead, you turn it into a "Parn thinks the government is innocent, what a mean person" thing. Fuck you and your high horse.
Should the government have done a better job? Absolutely. But that doesn't negate the fact that the people of New Orleans, and a lot of people here, regarded Katrina as "just another hurricane" until it was already too late. You know it's true.
The blame is on all parties, and not just the government, period.
It must be tough to avoid those conservative talking points though.
Way to miss the point of the comment, dumbass. But yeah, I'm just a stupid conservative anyways, right? Because conservatives are all incapable of saying anything intelligent. Or maybe we can flip it around! Liberals are incapable of saying anything intelligent. See how fun this political game is? But do keep denying that you're playing it, alright? I'm sure if you tell a lie enough times, someone might believe it.
I think it's particularly interesting that you label me as conservative... how exactly did you come to that conclusion anyways? Furthermore, why does it even matter? And why do you keep bringing up statements regarding the administration, as if I'd deny what our president did (or lack thereof)? Because it's a political game for you, that's why.
I'm one of those "retards" who cares when people die and millions lose their homes.
No, you're one of the many retards in this country looking for a scapegoat when people should be focusing on fixing the actual problems. You know, maybe like finding an effective way of moving hundreds of thousands of people in a short timeframe since what they had obviously didn't work, and hurricane season happens to be an annual thing (nevermind that such a process is exceptionally hard... accountability of everyone is nearly impossible). But hey, we have more important things to do like blaming the government for everything and finding a scapegoat!
Since we're in the business of villainizing and blabbing on about caring so much for the people of New Orleans, do tell... what did YOU do to aid the survivors of the incident?
What this really all comes down to is Bush's quote from three days after Katrina hit: "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees." Not only did many anticipate the breach and warn the local government that the levees will be breached, but Bush himself was warned days a few days before.
And what it really does come down to is your stupid ass pretending like you aren't playing the political game with me when you are, and just labeling me as another conservative moron. Hey dipshit, President Bush said that statement, and he was a liar for making it. Is that what you wanted to hear? Because I'm not going to deny that he said that, or play off his words to defend him like some blind Republican dog that's more concerned about his agenda than just accepting the truth. Fuck you and your playing my words off as some conservative agenda, as if I weren't able to think for myself.
Long story short, you can talk about how much you cared about New Orleans and the people there, but talk is cheap. What did you actually do for them, beyond talk about how much you care?
