Today's Note from a madman

In this country's heartland
Many wait and pray
"Someone come and help us
On this cold, unpleasant day"
In precincts colored blue
Many people say
We really hate ineptness, but
It is the Bushies' way
There are people waiting in snow and ice. They are running out of gas. They are running out of patience. They are stuck in
this country's heartland and there's nothing they can do about it.
They now know how we feel in the Blue States.
Because of the war in Iraq, there are not enough National Guardsmen to rescue people as they wait in their cars, SUV's and other assorted vehicles that are stuck in the first winter storm of the season.
People have been in these vehicles for eight, nine, ten hours and more. They have their families with them. They're cold and hungry and all they want to do is get back home, or to Grandma's house.
"G"(Lobal) "W"(arming) Bush and the Corporate Communists they represent either don't get or they don't care. We need National Guardsmen
here. There are emergencies here. There are people to protect here.
THE NATIONAL GUARD IS OUR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE HERE IN THE USA.
Like in Florida this past summer, when four hurricanes hit, there were many volunteers that helped those less fortunate than themselves. There is a major difference however between Florida in the summer and Indiana in a snowstorm. In Florida, people were able to get out of their homes to volunteer. In Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, etc, there are snow drifts higher than their cars to contend with. They can't help because they're prisoners in their own homes with no way out.
In past years, when a winter storm hit, we were ready. There were trucks to rescue people stranded by the storm. There were guardsmen to help clear the snow and ice. There was help.
Today, just sit there and be patient.
After all, Halliburton's Oil is still under the sand owned by the people of Iraq.
Stupid Quote of the Day
"I am truly saddened by the thought that anyone could have the impression that I, or others here, are doing anything other than working urgently to see that the lives of the fighting men and women are protected and are cared for in every way humanly possible."
-Donald Rumsfeld to the troops in Mosul, Iraq, the day after the 22 servicemen and women were killed while eating lunch by the hand of a homicide bomber
It's all about you, isn't it Rummy?
Stupid Headline of the Day
"Colin Powell to drop ball in New York on December 31."
-Headline in AMNew York from Monday, December 20, 2004
How many balls does this guy have to drop in all?
