Remember the poor, pathetic, helpless African-Americans who needed Massah George Bush to rescue them after Hurricane Katrina? And how the press casigated him relentlessly (even to this day) for a slow response?
Now jump ahead to today. Obama fiddles while Texas burns. And the press? Yawn. Nothing to see here. Move along. Just a bunch of mostly white Republicans dying while Obama does nothing.
My suggestion to Gov. Perry? Get some of those nappy headed transplants that Texas adopted from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and put them in the line of fire. When the Bruthas and Sistahs start getting fried, or losing their property, then we’ll see how fast the press and Obama respond. I have a hunch that there will be a marked difference in the amount of help provided by the Feds before and after. Just one honkey’s hunch, but what do I know?

Maybe the experts at Smashmouth can answer this question…WTF is “Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder?”

This is a must read from Phoebe’s Detention Room about the Unconstitutional Property Tax.

A great article by Kip Hagopian at The Hoover Institution, Stanford University. A Smash Mouth must read.
Basically, it is a parable about three brothers, with equal talents, who made wildly disparate incomes based solely upon the amount of effort each put into identical jobs, and upon what those brothers chose to do with their money after they earned it. Course the guy who worked the hardest and saved was forced to pay the most by the other two. But go read it.
I’ll be honest, back in Virginia I was never exposed to people on welfare (except my clients, and I did not have much personal interaction with them). Out here in Vegas, living in a lower-income, more transient neighborhood, I rub shoulders with many who are gaming the system. One neighbor is on disability but working and being paid under the table so it won’t cut down on the amount of money he gets for being “disabled” and “unable to work.” Another works summers and then collects unemployment the rest of the year. And he lets his 30-year-old son live with him. The son is on unemployment and actively seeks to submarine required job interviews because he does not want to work. And he wonders why he can’t find a chick.
Our system is fucked up and getting worse and worse and worse. I’ll be honest, I’m getting depressed. The Tea Party temporarily fired up conservatives, but we won one election and everybody thinks that is the end of it, we won. Meanwhile, back in Wisconsin and Ohio and Michigan and the federal government, progressives are fighting back. It is a long, hard war, and Tea Partiers and conservatives view it as just a single months long campaign. As long as we have those on the dole rioting when their benefits are trimmed back or their right to
skull fuck us collectively bargain against we the tax payers, while the silent majority acquiesce when their rates are raised, the system will only get worse.
I’m all for gun control…I use two hands with my hand guns, ‘specially the .44 Mag.
