SAINT RITA THE IMPOSSIBLE

f

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

When I saw the hurricane name list back two weeks ago, it horrified me that "Rita" was one of the names for this is when we learned about the terrible tragedy in the St. Rita Nursing home. The people there drowned, alone and unaided in the end. A terrifying and bitter death. The pictures within that fatal building are nauseating and pathetic at the same time.

Now Rita is joined with the Destroyer and is bringing more destruction down upon us. Two catagory five hurricanes in the same body of water in less than three weeks is amazing. Usually, the energy stored in the water is dischared when a very powerful hurricane stirs up the ocean but not now. The Gulf waters are blazing hot and the sun just threw a goodly bit of energy at us for over a week, one blast after another, my computer was ruined with one of the blasts.

Sometimes there are too many coincidences. The fact that the hurricane has the name of the notorious death trap and is a death trap is...astronomically amazing. It makes one pause and wonder. Hubris. The Gods. Let's look at the history of St. Rita: From the Catholic Encyclopedia
Born at Rocca Porena in the Diocese of Spoleto, 1386; died at the Augustinian convent of Cascia, 1456. Feast, 22 May. Represented as holding roses, or roses and figs, and sometimes with a wound in her forehead.

According to the "Life" (Acta SS., May, V, 224) written at the time of her beatification by the Augustinian, Jacob Carelicci, from two older biographies, she was the daughter of parents advanced in years and distinguished for charity which merited them the surname of "Peacemakers of Jesus Christ". Rita's great desire was to become a nun, but, in obedience to the will of her parents, she, at the age of twelve, married a man extremely cruel and ill-tempered. For eighteen years she was a model wife and mother. When her husband was murdered she tried in vain to dissuade her twin sons from attempting to take revenge; she appealed to Heaven to prevent such a crime on their part, and they were taken away by death, reconciled to God. She applied for admission to the Augustinian convent at Cascia, but, being a widow, was refused. By continued entreaties, and, as is related, by Divine intervention, she gained admission, received the habit of the order and in due time her profession. As a religious she was an example for all, excelled in mortifications, and was widely known for the efficacy of her prayers.

Urban VIII, in 1637, permitted her Mass and Office. On account of the many miracles reported to have been wrought at her intercession she received in Spain the title of La Santa de los impossibiles. She was solemnly canonized 24 May, 1900.
Gaaaa. She prayed for her sons to die and then went off to live a saintly life! Urgggghhh. Shudder. The ancient Goddess Kali would love this woman to death.

She flailed herself and drew blood, a perfect mad woman. She beat herself. Tortured her own body.

How amazingly horrible. You see, many people worship Death. I don't know why, but they do. Then they express amazement when Death comes to collect them and haul them off. Bush worships the Devil that is Death. Note how successful he is, serving his particular entity.

Anyway, a scary lady and a scary hurricane. One problem with modern America is, many people have been migrating towards hurricane alley. They all want to live in the most dangerous places, absolutely live where living is most shaky, like California.

Unlike us hardier folk up north, expecting winter, preparing for winter and enduring winter, the south larks around, happy as a grasshopper until the inevitable hurricane/tornado/ whatever slams in, then they need to be rescued and everything fixed up again and each rebuilding is much more expensive that previous and more people move in and we see a spiral downwards, for we can't afford this endless game.

It is bankrupting us. If we lose two port cities and much of the oil pumping in the Gulf, we are collectively in deep doo-doo. And we already are overdrawing our accounts and what does Congress do?

Voted for more tax cuts. Which will help the upperclasses in the South but will mean we will bleed even more red ink, which will destroy all of America. This is insane as well as St. Ritianly impossible.
f
I pulled this picture off the NOAA webpage at sunset. The sun shone across the face of the following edge of the eye. I have seldom seen an eye this tightly wound. The clouds are moving so fast around it, they are stretched to the breaking point. No big lumps or castles in the air, they are shrieking along the short leash that pins them to the eye.
f
Never ever ever have I seen an infrared radar image of a hurricane with the heaviest rain so symetrical. Usually, it is ragged and lopsided, favoring the upper back side of the hurricane, the part that hit Mississippi so hard with Katrina.

This one is amazingly perfect, like the very tight eye. This means, the winds are not only terrific but uniform. A tremendously dangerous storm, I would suggest, much more so than Katrina, even.

All summer, I tracked stories about sea life dying in the Gulf. One day, on the west coast of Florida, residents watched millions of sea animals desperately running away from the Gulf, trying to reach the Atlantic. Crabs were climbing over fish who were shoving each other along with skates and sharks and porpoises all heading in the same direction: away from the northern and western shores of the Gulf.

Creatures still live within the bosom of Mother Nature. Unlike us, they can see disaster coming from afar. They know when to flee, desperation giving them wings.

My grandfather warned me about this. If you suddenly notice fish or ants or geese running around frantically, expect something bad to happen. They can tell.

&spades From the Association of State Floodplain Managers: A must read. A letter last January to Hastert begging him to not fold FEMA into Homeland Security and warning about neglecting flood control works and warns of things going wrong which have obviously happened now.

A must read.

Yesterday, Congress had a session discussing all these pesky catagory five hurricanes hitting us. They were all relieved to learn that global warming has nothing to do with this, this is "normal" (based on data gathered during the time greenhouse gases were already building up rapidly! Ha, of course, this is ignored!) for the oceans, our heatsink/bellweather, to occilate wildly over a 30 year time span.

So we will go on doing wrong what we are doing. Hail Venus, hothouse planet! Here we come!

The stock market is dropping. Oil prices are climbing world wide because we are going to suck up all that oil or else. No rationing for America, by gum! Prime those pumps! Like Cheney said, hang the hospitals (except his, he needs his hospital!) and get the energy flowing to the oil pumps.

I wonder if the media will show pictures of damaged oil rigs after this monumental hurricane blows through? Hahaha. Yeah, right.

That is scary. No one will attempt this, will they? We will see.

And note: China has been hit today with yet ANOTHER typhoon. Isn't that odd? Eh? Or is it normal. I don't think they think that.

INTERVIEW WITH A WATCHER

f
Art by Elaine Meinel Supkis

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Now we will go into rather strange and odd territory today. The web is a very interesting place. Within it is parked all sorts of odd and rather amazing if not horrible information, some of it totally false but alas, a lot of it perfectly true. Venturing into these places and talking about these things can be difficult for one seems insane or deluded but alas for America and our entire planet, the Bush family's crown jewels lie deep within the dark muck of the crazier side of the web. Every once and a while the Bush mask slips and they can't really help themselves, their true natures spring forth and we gasp in amazement and then everyone starts saying, "This doesn't matter. Who cares? It was long ago, like yesterday, yeah, they are all JOKING, they don't really mean all of this.

Well, that attitude is dead wrong. As the bodies of dead humans pile ever higher, we have to look at the truth about the Bush clan for this reveals their plans and goals and a lot worse, trust me on this.
f
Normally, I visit only at night. I am a Watcher. Observing humanity and the passages between the spirit world and reality is what I do, it is my function. To witness and warn.
f
Thank you for coming today. I appreciate your visits. I had one last night that was disturbing so I expected to see some weird news today on the internet and certainly enough, here it is.

From the Gainesville.com of Florida, a regular newspaper
Gov. Bush & his mystical buddyAfter more than an hour of solemn ceremony naming Rep. Marco Rubio, R-West Miami, as the 2007-08 House speaker, Gov. Jeb Bush stepped to the podium in the House chamber last week and told a short story about "unleashing Chang," his "mystical warrior" friend.

Here are Bush's words, spoken before hundreds of lawmakers and politicians:
''Chang is a mystical warrior. Chang is somebody who believes in conservative principles, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism, believes in moral values that underpin a free society.

''I rely on Chang with great regularity in my public life. He has been by my side and sometimes I let him down. But Chang, this mystical warrior, has never let me down.''

Bush then unsheathed a golden sword and gave it to Rubio as a gift.

''I'm going to bestow to you the sword of a great conservative warrior,'' he said, as the crowd roared.

The crowd, however, could be excused for not understanding Bush's enigmatic foray into the realm of Eastern mysticism.

We're here to help.

In a 1989 Washington Post article on the politics of tennis, former President George Bush was quoted as threatening to ''unleash Chang'' as a means of intimidating other players.

The saying was apparently quite popular with Gov. Bush's father, and referred to a legendary warrior named Chang who was called upon to settle political disputes in Chinese dynasties of yore.

The phrase has evolved, under Gov. Jeb Bush's use, to mean the need to fix conflicts or disagreements over an issue. Faced with a stalemate, the governor apparently "unleashes Chang" as a rhetorical device, signaling it's time to stop arguing and start agreeing.

No word on if Rubio will unleash Chang, or the sword, as he faces squabbles in the future.
What do you think of this?
f
Perhaps you should call on Geronimo to talk about this. The Bushes use his skull for magic ceremonies which they used to do at the Skull and Bones crypt at Yale but had to remove it when it leaked out that their cult had it illegally. Grave robbing is illegal. Museums do it all the time. It isn't right.
f
I'd rather not. He comes only with lightning bolts. I already have enough trouble with my computers going down thanks to energy surges. Normally I call upon anime stars to explain or joke about these things but every once and a while, I feel the need to warn people about this stuff, the black magic, that the Bushes do. As you well know, I don't think it is a joke or silly or has no consequences.
f
We both know even stupid teens and ditzy actresses playing with the occult is very dangerous. The top political family in the USA doing this can be fatal to all humanity. They can kill everyone if they continue to invoke the powers of the Demons. Look at them! Do they look or sound sane? Do they look like honest Christians? Why do they belong to so many magic cults that pretend their devil worship is a joke? Can't people figure out, this is a deadly game?
f
People call me names and tell me to not take all this seriously, dear Watcher. As you well know. We both used to be visited by and talked to the FBI in the past because they needed information that only we had, to solve crimes like the Oklahoma City bombing.
f
I remember how you dropped the dish you were washing when the news broke, breaking the dish. You yelled and the phone rang and it was some agents in DC calling, asking for more information.
f
Yes, they visited, too, didn't they? *sigh* There were other times, too, but after 9/11, they never call, never visit. No matter if I email them information or call, dead silence. Readers on the darker side of the web know that our guardians are no longer working to save America. Like a cancer, fear and traitorous thinking pervades Washington now which is why absolutely everyone connected with protecting Americans failed utterly when the hurricane hit. So many died that they were happy to say, "only around 10,000 are dead," and they want everyone to ignore this or heaven help us, be pleased it wasn't a quarter million like in December, overseas.
f
We are glad Jeb Bush, father of a family of degenerate, criminal children, has finally named his demon. "Chang" could be anyone but I believe that this refers to a famous (evil) monk, here is some data about him: From History and Philosophy via Google:
Shaolin priests spent an average of 10 years behind Temple walls in a strict regimen of work, mediation, practice and study. Their day started at sunrise and ended at sunset. Graduation from the Temple consisted of three tests. The first was a difficult oral examination of Chinese history, martial arts theory, philosophy and healing. The next was full-contact sparring matches with several Kung-Fu masters, and the last was the Ordeal of the Lohan Hall.

The Fukien Province monastery contained the 36 chambers or levels of martial arts' instruction and the infamous Lohan Hall (also known as Priest-Scholar Hall and Den of the Wooden Men). Upon entering the Lohan Hall, the graduate student fought 108 mechanical wooden dummies armed with knives, spears and clubs triggered by the student's body movements. If the student survived, they had to make their way through an opening blocked by a 5OO-pound metal urn containing red-hot coals. Gripping the urn in their forearms, the student had to slide the urn to create an exit. In the process, he branded his forearms with the badges of the Shaolin master, the Dragon and the Tiger.

In 1768, the Manchus again saw the need to destroy the second Shaolin Temple. They sought the allegiance of Chang Sanfeng, a sung dynasty scholar and outstanding student of the Fukien Temple. His superior physical and mental abilities allowed him to graduate from the temple a full-fledged master in less than two years.

A Taoist, Chang Sanfeng left the temple to start a monastery in Hubei's Wu Tang mountain range. Here he created Wu Tang Martial Arts, merging the hard arts with the mystical Chi Kung (Internal Power) arts. This led to the creation of T'ai Chi Ch'uan, "The Grand Ultimate Art," of which, one account reports, Chang Sanfeng as the acknowledged founder. Sanfeng created T'ai Chi Ch'uan as a combat art after seeing a snake defeat a hawk, later discovering its health and fitness benefits.

Sanfeng's revolutionary internal power building techniques and promise of increased fighting ability attracted many students to him. Manchu officials encouraged the rivalry between the Wu Tang disciples and the Shaolin. After many clashes the more peaceful Shaolin monks left looking for areas of peace to live, study and teach. The Fukien Temple was eventually burned to the ground.

Shaolin monks moved to India and Southeast Asia. Some remained, posing as tradesmen, farmers and artists. Certain Shaolin monks started the infamous Triad Society, a group that began as political movement and later fell into criminal activities. Others settled on Ermei Mountain in Szechuan Province, an area that developed many martial styles.
I know you can see clearly where the "power" that Jeb Bush seeks to obtain lies. Note how the peaceful Shaolin temple was destroyed by a conspiritor who entered under false premises, took all the secrets and preverted them to the State, to serve against the People, to suppress and destroy them! This drove the Shaolin into the Darkness and they, too became part of the Evil. All Yang all the time.
f
Alas, to take the high spiritual powers of peace and love and to harness it to the Darkness, to drive across a carpet of corpses, to stand upon smoldering ruins holding thousands of innocent dead, crowing, did you see the anniversary ceremony at the WTC just before Bush goaded everyone into the illegal invasion of Iraq? Wow. It screamed "Black Magic".
f
Yes, I remember you warning everyone, and being mocked. We see this over and over. When Babs Bush said the family's favorite musician was a Black Sabbath practitioner and heavy drug abuser, everyone laughed. When the Bushes flash the sign of the devil at important time markers, everyone laughs and they giggle and say, they are doing the "longhorn" which is, alas, still an occult symbol. So typical of Texas, by the way.
f
It did amaze me, growing up, seeing how many adults around me were doing black magic spells even as they tried to laugh it all off, yet look at the history of Jack Parsons, the man who brought my father into the rocket community before WWII. He was part of a very real coven. He founded the Jet Propulsion Labs in Devil's canyon which is where he and my dad used to set off rockets in the late 1930's. He and I have some very unfortunate and obscure connections. *shudder*
f
He lost his top security clearance over that stuff. And then, after the Russians got hold of enough rocket data to scare DC into action, they took on Nazis and occultists to "save America" which they did...by arming it with so many nuclear/hydrogen bombs and missiles, set on a hair trigger, they can kill every last human in one day! Amazing. Still, Americans trust these people. I cannot fathom it.
f
Yes, I raged about this all my life, since childhood. Thanks for helping me out. Just this last week, sneakily, Bush and his co-religionists snuck in a provision "allowing" them to use nukes preemptively on anyone who "is a danger to America". Shades of Doomsday!
f
The Chinese won't let them. They want the earth intact and their people alive. But then, rereading the history of the Shaolin Temple and you wonder. Can they do it?
f
Looks like the Chinese got America and North Korea to bury the hatchet. I suspect, this is because Bush had to beg for more loans thanks to Katrina. From Xinhuanet:
The six parties to the Korean Peninsula nuclear talks adopted a joint statement here on Monday, in which the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) promised to abandon all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs.

The statement says the DPRK is "committed to" abandoning "all nuclear weapons" and "existing nuclear programs" and returning, at an early date, to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards.

The United States affirmed in the document that it has no nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula and has no intention to attack or invade the DPRK with nuclear or conventional weapons.

The fourth round of the six-party talks was held in Beijing in two phases, from July 26 to August 7 and from September 13 to 19 respectively, involving China, the DPRK, the United States, the Republic of Korea (ROK), Russia and Japan. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wu Dawei chaired the talks.

The six parties held, in the spirit of mutual respect and equality, "serious" and "practical" talks concerning the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, says the joint statement.

The statement says the six parties agreed to take coordinated steps to implement their consensus in a phased manner in line with the principle of "commitment for commitment, action for action."

They also agreed to hold the fifth round of the six-party talks in Beijing in early November this year at a date to be determined through consultations.
Everything is going as I expected. The Chinese are the new rulers of the planet, they have secured all their borders and now have their greatest enemy on a very short leash. But they don't control everything, do they?
f
An old saying in my world: "If you keep a large, rabid dog on a short leash, you may die of rabies." This sense of control is very tenuous. America can still bring down the entire nuclear arsenal on everyone's heads. Mutual assured destruction doesn't work with demons.

This is, after all, their Master Plan! This is, after all, their Goal!
f
Yes, you warned me back in 1972 to "beware of the Fool with the Crown and the Sword," didn't you? I wish America would be afraid of this menace but alas, the usual things work as always, appeals to vanity and wealth and power overwhelm good sense and the voice of Angels. I note that many American churches are filled with people who want not only for Jesus to love them but to make them rich and powerful.
f
None of which passes through the Gates of Death. Only the soul may enter, naked. Not so much a scrap of paper, a pin, passes. They all worry about their immortal souls yet sell them in an instant for scraps of green paper. Sad, isn't it?
f
Which takes us back to the fate of the Shaolin Temple and the great loss there, the spiritual loss that still lies there. Thank you for your time, Watcher. Hope to see you again, I guess.
f
I am aware that you view me with mixed feelings. But what I do is what I have to do. That cannot change.

DEVOUT DOG PRAYS FOR HARMONY

f

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

The very first animal to show us affection and love was the dog. During the great catastrophe of the howlingly cold, bitter Great Ice Ages, they came to our campfires and caves and merged with us so completely, our way of living has been forever altered by their pack politics, their attentive devotion.
f
That is right! Hi, everyone! Even cyberdogs are loyal, loving and want bones and a warm bed! I love dog stories! Continue on, I am all ears!

&hearts The story of Hama, the devout Buddhist dog, is circling the globe. I worship in a Buddhist Temple where Temple dogs and cats roam. So this is cute, very cute: From Chosun news, South Korea:
A dog at a small Buddhist temple on Jindo Island, South Jeolla Province has attracted a substantial following by performing Buddhist rites. Hama, a one-year-old Jindo dog at Buljang Temple, has won the hearts of Buddhists over a month of performing the "Yebul," a ceremony paying respect to a Buddha image, alongside the monks. The Ven. Buksan of Buljang Temple said, "We keep about 30 Jindo dogs, but we were able to train Hama, who is especially smart, to do simple things, and now, he can perform the Yebul... I wonder if he had some connection with the Buddha in a previous life."
Japanese temples are guarded by dogs who sit in attentive stony silence, carved ears perked up, waiting for summons, forbidding demons.
f
&hearts Here is the famous Hachiko statue which stands near the Shibuya station in Tokyo. From Japantoday:
Shibuya is known today as a popular gathering point for Tokyo' young people. But long before loose socks and sandals with three-inch soles, before Tower Records and 109, Shibuya had another claim to fame: Hachiko.

The year was 1925. Every morning, Professor Ueno Eizaburo walked to Shibuya station accompanied by his loyal dog, Hachi, nicknamed Hachiko. Hachiko didn't accompany his master to his teaching job at the Imperial University (now known as Tokyo University), but when Professor Ueno returned every day at 3pm, the dog was always at the station waiting for him. However, on May 21 of that year, Ueno died of a stroke while at the university. Hachiko went to Shibuya as always to meet his master, but 3 o'clock came and went, and the professor didn't arrive. So Hachiko waited. And waited.

The Akita must have known something was wrong, but nonetheless he returned to the station every day at 3 o'clock to meet the train. Soon people began to notice the loyal dog's trips made in vain to meet his master. Ueno's former gardener, the Shibuya stationmaster, and others began feeding Hachiko and giving him shelter. Word of his unaltered routine spread across the nation, and he was held up as a shining example of loyalty. People travelled to Shibuya simply to see Hachiko, feed him, and gently touch his head for luck.

The months turned to years, and still Hachiko returned to Shibuya station daily at 3pm, even as arthritis and aging took their toll. Finally, on March 7, 1934 - nearly ten years after last seeing Professor Ueno - the 12-year-old Akita was found dead on the same spot outside the station where he had spent so many hours waiting for his master.

Hachiko's death made the front pages of major Japanese newspapers. A day of mourning was declared. Contributions poured in from all over the country to memorialize the dog that had won the hearts of the nation. Sculptor Ando Teru was hired, with the money that had been contributed, to create a bronze statue of Hachiko. In April 1934 it was placed on the exact spot where Hachiko had waited for so long.
The statue took some damage from the WWII firestorms but survived and this too, renewed faith in our faithful companions.

The dogs of New Orleans are still being reeled in along with some very unhappy cats. The owners of these pets worry about them even as they themselves struggle to survive.

Our hearts go out to all of them, all.

GOD AND THE NATURE OF NATURE

f
Art by Elaine Meinel Supkis

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

More than once this year, we got to see Mother Nature's dark side. Again and again, She has shown us how She can annihilate everything in Her path with a mere flick of Her wrist. Time and again, humans have responded by throwing themselves to the mercy of other gods, all of whom are as feeble as ants under foot at Her feasts of death.

From the NYT:
Earlier today, President Bush prayerfully commemorated the victims of Hurricane Katrina and offered the hope that opportunity and prosperity, especially among those long marooned in poverty, would rise from the grief and ruins.

Mr. Bush, speaking at services on a national day of prayer and remembrance, said: "We commend the departed to God. We mourn with those who mourn. And we ask for strength in the work ahead."

The morning after pledging a huge federal government role in rebuilding the stricken region, the president invoked "the Creator of wind and water" in an address at the National Cathedral.
Years ago, I have noted that whenever Bush utters the word, "death," he smirks. This revelation so startled some reporters, they actually wrote a story about it all back in 1999 at my suggestion, back when reporters still talked to me.

At the 9/11 funeral service in DC, Bush squirmed in his putrid pew and looked all around, acting like a little boy. He didn't run off to his potty but he looked like he could barely contain his precious fluids. It was quite noticable. Dignity is a stranger to that man.

As an executioner who chickened out of war himself, he is an odd one. He loves the Devil that is Death but pretends, successfully, thanks to the media, that he is a Christian. Odd, isn't it, talking about "the Creator of wind and water" and think about how often Bush denies Mother Nature Her due. He fights Her at every turn. He wants to pollute and destroy our entire planet. And then worships the Creator?

Creatrix!
The president, who has remarked often on his own Christian faith, touched upon what is for believers an eternal mystery: that nature is without feeling but nature's God is an endless fount of compassion.

"Through prayer, we look for ways to understand the arbitrary harm left by this storm and the mystery of undeserved suffering," Mr. Bush said. "And in our search, we are reminded that God's purposes are sometimes impossible to know here on earth. Yet ever as we are humbled by forces we cannot explain, we take comfort in the knowledge that no one is ever stranded beyond God's care."

Acknowledging that the winds and flood had inflicted their worst harm on "the elderly, the vulnerable and the poor," Mr. Bush said the hardships, however unwanted, offered an opportunity. "This poverty has roots in generations of segregation and discrimination that closed many doors of opportunity," he said. "As we clear away the debris of a hurricane, let us also clear away the legacy of inequality."
Monster. He is pure evil. The poor and elderly died, not to mention the babies---because they had no means of escaping the hurricane and those who made it impossible for them are...Bush and his governance.

Mother Nature didn't keep the victims in St. Rita's pinned down that day. They were stranded there by Bush's cruel policies!

If someone throws a box of kittens into the river and they drown, the river didn't kill them. The killer is the one who threw them in. Throwing the disabled and poor into the path of a violent storm is the same thing.
"The Creator of wind and water," Mr. Bush said, is the source of "a love that can redeem the worst tragedy, a love that is stronger than death."
Kind of late to smear one's love around, Bubble Boy. It would have meant something if it happened before August 30th. Of course, the love he craves is love for himself. To be let off the hook.

Why don't the Skull and Bones guys pray to the Creator of wind and water? This is a very pertinent question. Since they worship death and use coffins and laugh about the devil and parade around with magic numbers and call themselves Skull and Bones, geeze, sounds so Christian, doesn't it?
Invoking a theme he also sounded in his address on Thursday night from New Orleans, Mr. Bush said: "Through this tragedy, great duties have come to our nation. The destruction of this hurricane was beyond any human power to control, but the restoration of broken communities and disrupted lives now rests in our hands."
That stupid sleezebag.

We DO control many things and our direct actions are now being translated into catastrophes of greater and greater horror. We can flee hurricanes but only if we have transportation. Elderly in wheelchairs or strapped in hospital beds can't flee hurricanes. Neither can the poor who had exactly ZERO emergency housing opened to them, the Super Dome was very grudgingly opened at the last minute and only after enough people expressed horror and outrage that the poor were going to be abandoned utterly.

&spades Here is a typical example of how Bush and his gang deal with natural disasters. From the Clarion Ledger
Federal officials appear to be seeking proof to blame the flood of New Orleans on environmental groups, documents show.

The Clarion-Ledger has obtained a copy of an internal e-mail the U.S. Department of Justice sent out this week to various U.S. attorneys' offices: "Has your district defended any cases on behalf of the (U.S.) Army Corps of Engineers against claims brought by environmental groups seeking to block or otherwise impede the Corps work on the levees protecting New Orleans? If so, please describe the case and the outcome of the litigation."

Cynthia Magnuson, a spokeswoman for the Justice Department, said Thursday she couldn't comment "because it's an internal e-mail."

Shown a copy of the e-mail, David Bookbinder, senior attorney for Sierra Club, remarked, "Why are they (Bush administration officials) trying to smear us like this?"

The Sierra Club and other environmental groups had nothing to do with the flooding that resulted from Hurricane Katrina that killed hundreds, he said. "It's unfortunate that the Bush administration is trying to shift the blame to environmental groups. It doesn't surprise me at all."

Federal officials say the e-mail was prompted by a congressional inquiry but wouldn't comment further.
Blaming the very people who are trying desperately to stop the unfolding disaster is typical. Shoot the messenger! Environmentalists didn't cut the funding for the levee repairs, for example. They didn't hire Brownie although Bush and his gang want everyone to think that Lieberman (another American who puts a different nation ahead of this one, alas) chose and hired Brownie!

&spades Finally, going back to the whole coffin thing: From Online Journal
Service Corporation International (SCI), the largest funeral services provider in North America, implicated in scandals in Texas and Florida, recently learned that one of its subsidiaries is negotiating a lucrative contract with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to remove dead bodies in areas ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.

SCI paid $100 million to settle a class-action lawsuit several years ago alleging the company desecrated thousands of corpses, and dumped bodies into mass graves.

Moreover, the company paid $200,000 to settle a whistleblower lawsuit that sought to expose that two members of the Texas funeral commission, the agency which regulates the funeral industry, were actually employees of the company they were supposed to monitor—an obvious conflict-of-interest.

In the civil matter, which took place at two Jewish cemeteries in Florida, the plaintiff's attorney said that Service Corporation International of Florida, Inc., a subsidiary of SCI, secretly broke into and opened burial vaults and dumped remains in a wooded area where the remains may have been consumed by wild animals.
Seriously, I wonder if the Bush gang gets first dibs on the skulls. I thought, back in 2000, when the May story broke, Bush would be sent home to daddy. But they bribed Ms. May out of court to shut up. LIke Bush's girlfriend who got a very illegal abortion to kill his baby, silence is truly "golden".
Additionally, SCI of Florida buried "remains in locations other than those purchased by plaintiffs; crushing burial vaults in order to make room for other vaults; stacking remains rather than burying them side-by-side; secretly digging up and removing remains; secretly burying remains head-to-foot rather than side-by-side; secretly mixing body parts and remains from different individuals; secretly allowing plots owned by one party to be occupied by a different person; secretly selling plots in rows where there were more graves assigned than the rows could accommodate; secretly allowed graves to encroach on other plots; secretly sold plots so narrow that the plots could not accommodate standard burial vaults; secretly participated in the desecration of gravesites and markers and failed to exercise reasonable care in handling the plaintiff's loved ones remains
Isn't is odd, haha--not-- that the grave scandals were concentrated in Florida and Texas, the Bush duo's joint back yards? And both were caught up in all this via bribes?

Well, welcome to corrupt America, where every grave is a chance for the Skull and Bones Bushes to get rich or get more stuff for their odd religious practices!

SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE

Cartoon by Elaine Meinel Supkis

Well, the old beat up sour puss of the Opus Dei Court has died and will be replaced by a sneering young prune faced man. Meanwhile, in California, the legislators passed the wonderful gay marriage bill...at long last! Extending normal civil rights to yet another minority even as minorities in New Orleans, and there are plenty of gays there too! As well as assorted ethnic and religious groups, in California at least, some people are finally being allowed to live normal lives without living within the narrow confines of religious bigotry.

Schwarzenegger just announced he will veto it. Why?

Seriously, does this serial adulterer in the serial adulterer party, the GOP which stands for "Grope or pester" party, is worried about his marriage collapsing if two gay guys can have a civil relationship? Huh? Do the marriages of the slimeballs in the GOP teeter so precariously that they need to forbid others the pleasures of matrimony simply because they can't stand being married, themselves?

Gads, look at the Bush family. The family that brings cooties together from across the planet! When the GOP tried to impeach Clinton for getting a blow job, I assumed it was because he got it for free, she even brought the pizza! And he didn't get any itchy brain draining diseases, to boot!

What puzzles me greatly is, what the hell difference does it make if two men or two women kiss and hold each other dear? Are they setting a bad example? Would an honorable marriage make those Potemkin marriages so dear to the GOP, moot?

Or are they tempted to do the same? Is this why so many of them seldom reproduce? Are pregnancies the times the males succeeded in getting it on? How on earth did Bush Senior get his bizarre partner with seed? By spitting them out from squeezed grapes?

And so the days pass and Schwarzenegger, after finishing his classes in "How to not be a total Ass" now will go back to starving his wife to death.
