…that someone gave a speech last night, and the gist of it is that he’s going to steal about $200 billion from me and you in an attempt to buy back his political popularity. Then, I read somewhere, that:
[someone] said Friday that the Gulf Coast must be rebuilt with an eye toward
wiping out the persistent poverty and racial injustice plain to all in
the suffering of the black and the poor in Hurricane Katrina’s wake.
Oh, yea, that’s how you wipe out poverty, "racial injustice," and suffering. You go in and absolve people of all accountability for their own situation and then take near complete responsibility for managing their own affairs going forward. Yep, that’ll do the trick. After all, it’s worked so well up to now.
What a society of complete and total fucking idiots I live in: top-to-bottom and wall-to-wall.
