That seems to be the deciding factor between right and wrong these days. As opposed to well...wrong being wrong, and right being right.

drjohncrapenter kissed his Barbara Streisand poster, bowed down before his John Lennon LP collection, rubbed for luck his Michael Moore bust, then drank his rancid bongwater, injected a shot of heroin *"how liberating the rush"* then nearly peed his fairy pants when the liberal nut sat down and wrote:Graceland Gardener was not far from the truth when, based on news coverage he saw, wrote:in fact, the looters didn't wait - dem homies acted the quickest!
This is your second overtly RACIST posting on this Elvis MB.
I've archived the page and trust the administrators will ban your ignorant rantings forevermore.

"This is all looking at the blame game," McClellan said. "We're not going to engage in the blame game."
"We've got to keep our energies focused on the task at hand."
"There are ongoing problems that need to be addressed,"
He said there would be time later for a thorough analysis of the government's response.

Funy how you are posting thing to insinuate someone being a RACIST...and yet you take joy in offending minorities on this board with the very idea of it.

Lastly to post it on this board where there could be very well people like me who are a minority, shows the lowest form of class.
The fact that you are somehow proud of it, makes you no better then the supposed group you are making fun of.

Please tell me where I am wrong. Can we add you to the list that hasn't a clue about American government...YEP.
Everytime I hear "Bush dropped the ball" it cracks me up.
As far as your personal comments, they are typical of a liberal. You cannot dissprove FACTS, so you go for the cheap shots. The funny part is that it only makes you come off worse.
The "do something" is typical of the MTV now generation. If anything was to be done immediately, the mayor should have been relieved along with the governer, so their freakin' jobs could have been carried out. Unfortunately it just isn't that easy. Determination takes time. Thank god Bush stopped his vacation and took over. People act as if he isn't allowed such a thing. If you remember the dude was on a never ending tour of the states speaking out about the war in Iraq.
YET he just got 10.5 billion approved from congress and sending 14,000 troops per day to clean up the mess made by local government.
I would say more, but Scatter pretty much covered the ground in detail.
From the constitution:The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
First of all, though it was true....I am not so sure it was abundently clear. It is not George Bush's job to maintain order at the State level unless called to do so. Tell me what point I did not adress? I believe I did with redundency.
It is simple. The President is not to step in till a plea is made from the governer. There was no evidence to support this. One of the first posts from Greg on the day of the tragedy is that it was all George Bush's fault. The administration..dropped the ball. Yet this could not be so because according to the constitution is not his call to make. Power to the states FIRST! We are to act as a republic governed by the states.
Aid is to be distributed by the State unless provisions run out. This was not the problem. It was the distribution...and why was this, because LOCAL government was incompetent.
George Bush is obligated to uphold the Constitution and for him to drop down and take over is clearly against it. Despite what you see on television. One day is not enough to determine this. People were not suffering...unless you count local government putting people in that dome only to so they can let out the rich...when then you have a point.
Like Scatter said, this isn't a sudden thing. The constitution was put in place to protect us, not to hurt us.
All this debating doesn't matter because the U.S.A. doesn't turn by the propaganda and the media will end up looking like fools. They are a dying breed and this is their last squelch of bias. Certain people will pay, and pay dearly.
The sad part is that also includes the victims.

What was that old line again?? Oh yeah....."Ignorance of the law is no excuse".
I'm not defending Bush for Bush's sake. He wasn't my first choice for President (or even my second or third). But then, the opposition was pretty weak, no?? So I have no personal axe to grind. I have plenty of problems with Bush policies, as we have personally discussed before.
But Facts are facts, the Law is the Law, and you would be among those squawking first if G.W. had violated State and Federal law in any other case. But here......because you are moved( as are we all) by the suffering of our brothers, you make an exception. Well.......you didn't take the oath of office to uphold the Constitution, did you???.
As for your nod to Michael Moore........well you're too intelligent for me to have to explain how you lose credibility with this reference. Moore is an inveterate liar and a shameless distorter of fact. If you are this far behind the curve on this issue, I can refer you to several sources which can enlighten you.
This man/mountain is on a par with Goebbels and Riefenstahl, and you should have known better. It speaks ill of your professed non-partisanship.
As for the jab about how we are suddenly strict Constitutionalists......ask before you make assumptions. There's nothing sudden about it for me, and you only had to ask to ascertain that fact. As for my knowledge of the law......just ask my parole officer [/color]

Gardner, your initial comments (before falling back on GOP talking points)
were much more on target before you resorted to pointless personal
attacks on Doc, some of which also violate the FECC guidelines.
