My Town Gladly Welcomes Katrina Victims
August 31st, 2005 12:29 pm

I’m proud to see the generosity and charity of my fellow Houstonians. Heck, it’s the least we can do for our neighbors in need. Just some examples:

As I am out and about for lunch and dinner, I’m running into many who have sought refuge in Houston. It breaks my heart to hear those who don’t know the state of their homes, loved ones or jobs.

I want to encourage each and every fellow Houstonian (and Texas for those in other towns) to welcome these folks with open arms and offer what help you can, even if it’s something as simple as picking up their tab for dinner.

Let’s show the world our hearts.

Update: Yahoo! Message Boards for those looking for missing people.

Update 2: Meanwhile, Cindy’s group plans on occupying the much needed hotel rooms and other services for her “look at me” tour. (h/t Matt) Thanks, Cindy.

Update 3: Here comes Matress Mac. He’s “letting frustrated evacuees spend several nights at his Gallery Furniture store in north Houston. “We’ve decided to open our doors up. Some of the people have run out of money for hotel rooms,” said Gallery Furniture owner Jim McIngvale. McIngvale also provided food for those displaced families.” Mac rocks!

DONATE, DONATE, DONATE…and when you do, be sure to go here to log your contributions. This is a great way to compete. I’d love to see this little humble blog take on some of the big dogs. If you still haven’t contributed, feel free to send something, anything to the Houston Red Cross, my charity of choice.

I don’t make it a habit of linking to Daily “Screw Them” Kos because frankly it’s a wasteland of idiocy. But I feel a need to link to a particular post to show the level of subhuman-idiocy that is abundant among that crowd. It’s entitled, “Put the N—-rs in the Superdome” (I had to edit the title because it disgusts me).

Apparently there are actually people who think the purpose of putting thousands of people in the biggest building in town for shelter was somehow an evil, racist plot to actually kill them all.

Some choice responses to the subhuman post include genius comments like, “He does make one good point… it seems unlikely the Superdome would have survived a Cat 5.” Color me confused, but it’s still standing!

Now there are some that have called for the idiot to change the title, so I’ll give them that.

Here’s another genius, whose tagline ironically says, “Nobody will change America for you, you have to work to make it happen“:

“The fact is there was no will and leadership to get it done, to get everyone out which was doable if the leadership of Government (State, Federal and local ) gave enough of a fuck.

So which is it? Should they have gotten themselves out or relied on the government to do it for them?

For what it’s worth, for those still wondering why “so many blacks were seen entering the Superdome”… the population is 2/3 black.

So extending such logic, I wonder if these same people will make such a connection between with the race of the looters we’re seeing all over the television. I’m guessing not.

Update: Liberals blaming Republicans for Hurricane Katrina. It was only a matter of time.

Update: Liberals are showing their “compassionate” side. Are you surprised?

Update: Another liberal says she didn’t help victims because they had a “W” sticker on their car. I think hell has a special wing for people like her.

What to do With the Looters…
August 31st, 2005 9:29 am

I’m not talking about those seeking food and water in a time of sheer desperation. I’m talking about the looters who bypass the food and water at the store and head to the electronics section to pick out a new 50 inch plasma television. Those people disgust me as they represent the lowest form of scum on the planet. When people are hurting and some have lost everything, include loved ones and friends, these assholes decide to take the opportunity to outfit their home theaters and “pimp their rides”. As police catch these criminals animals in the act, they ought to:

  1. Turn them over to the Army Corps of Engineers to use as levee-fillings;
  2. Put them in the flooded, disease-ridden jail for the rest of their time on earth;
  3. Require them to volunteer their time and sweat to rebuilding the city until it’s completely rebuilt and ready for business… then chunk them in jail forever.

It’s a damn shame.

If you want to help the victims, here’s one way.

Others:
SistaToldjah links with heart-breaking tales of looters trying to get into the Children’s Hospital. If there’s ever been a time for a “shoot ‘em on site” plan.
Michelle has some good updates.

DONATE, DONATE, DONATE…and when you do, be sure to go here to log your contributions. This is a great way to compete. I’d love to see this little humble blog take on some of the big dogs.

Foreign Aid to American Gulf Coast?
August 30th, 2005 4:20 pm

I wonder how long we’ll have to wait to see the U.N. and countries like Iran jumping to send aid to help the folks ravaged by Hurricane Katrina…

*crickets chirping*

Update: United Nations Undersecretary-General Jan “U.S. is Stingy” Egeland has offered a letter. It’s a start.

Update 2: It appears some foreign countries are speaking up:

Another Question for the Left
August 29th, 2005 7:15 pm

Please tell me what President Bush is unable to do as President of the United States from his ranch in Crawford that he would be able to do in Washington, D.C. during the month of August, a month when Congress is not in session and its members are not in Washington.

Headlines to Outrage Liberals
August 29th, 2005 12:03 am

Interesting little contest going on over at the blog: “Where Have You Gone, Ronald Reagan?” They’re giving away an iPod to the best “Outrage a Liberal” headline. What the hell, here’s a couple I tossed into the ring:

  • Consitution Amended - Bush Elected to Third Term
  • Supreme Court Rules - First Amendment Does Not Apply to Democrats
  • Bin Laden Replaces Dean as DNC Chairman
  • Medical Tests Show Hillary Can’t Technically be First “Female” President
  • Exit Polls Show Republican Candidate Receives 95% of Black Vote
  • Study Reveals Baby Seals a Viable Energy Alternative to Oil
  • President Bush Issues Executive Order Renaming Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Hillary Because of its Forecasted Catastrophic Impact on America
  • Cloning Success - Ronald Reagan DNA Used to Create Clone, Will Run Against Hillary in 2008

I think a couple of those would send some liberals I know right down to Jonestown.

As if it were really a question… Watch this and remember, it was recorded in 1940.

Sony adds Internet Browser to PSP
August 26th, 2005 10:08 pm

This past Wednesday, Sony released an upgrade (v2.00) to its PSP software. Among other enhancements, the upgrade includes a web browser.

Ok, so I am a geek at heart. I’ve had my PSP for about 3 months now and absolutely love it. I have a couple of games including NBA, Tiger Woods PGA Tour, and Mercury. I’ve also got a movie. This thing is a lifesaver for someone like me who spends so much time on airplanes.

For those of you unfamiliar with the PSP, it’s a handheld device slightly bigger than a remote control that allows you to watch movies, play video games, play MP3s, view pictures… and now surf the web.

Because I just don’t spend enough time online.
