Words cannot express how revolting this FEMA debacle has become. I wish I could update you on every aspect/tragedy, but there are literally dozens of new stories, posts, and articles going up every few hours. It is safe to say that at least 95%, if not all, of these stories have pointed out the shear failure of the government to do much of anything.
Let this be a lesson to everyone out there. Protect yourselves. Don’t believe for a second that FEMA is going to save your ass in times of crisis. Trust your friends, family, and close neighbors.
In the mean time, here’s a shotgun style list of the creme de la obscene in no particular order.
There is a huge shortage of cops everywhere to catch the looters… except the cops at walmart who are looking for a new pair of nikes. Granted, some are stealing necessities, while others are just stealing out of greed.
Now we all know that politicians like photo ops, but can you imagine setting up a food distribution only for the duration of the photos? Sorry folks, we need to take this food back.
Ahh, the irony! It burns! Did you know september is national preparedness month? It’s sponsored by the American Red Cross and the Department of Homeland Security. You haven’t heard of it? Perhaps they forgot to send out the press release.
It’s good to know that the contracts for cleanup and reconstruction include such fine organizations like Halliburton. Hey Cheney, tell Bush to back off and let some more destruction happen. That way, more contract money for you!
Even the children could be terrorists. I mean, why else would the military be frisking children that they are trying to save? Those muslim terrorist sure are sneaky, training our 4 year olds from 4000 miles away.
Hey you stinking survivors. You better not start eating that emergency food before the First Lady shows up!
But Bush is doing a fine job. I mean, he says he can still handle Iraq and Katrina. I’m glad our President can multitask so well.
You remember how this was “national preparedness month” run by red cross and the department of homeland (in)security? Well, homeland security still won’t let the red cross in.
WARNING. Some graphic pictures are finally coming in. Death is never pretty, so be forewarned. Update: more photos.
You’d think with all the support pouring in from around the country, that some of the few national guards wouldn’t be playing cards while people are dying all around.
I could go on and on, but I getting close to punching my computer monitor out of sheer anger. Basically put, the severity of this tragedy has been amplified, not diminished, by FEMA. The outrage is all around this country. Even the mainstream media is beginning to become sickened by the whitewashing and the lies.
I gotta go vent. Please spread the word. This is far more serious than I originally thought possible.

Again. Get the freagin word out.
Update: While I disagree with this guys desire to “empower FEMA”, this video clip shows just how little the government actually cares for the citizens. It’s highly emotional at the end, and to the point.
Update: Apparently, the looting cops are being questioned. I hope they get the 2 shown on the video at Walmart, though it’s a small and trivial worry when compared to the rebuilding of New Orleans.
