FEMA Honchos, and Voting rights Honchos

Where do they come from? This administration obviously picks high-level employees to deliberately screw-up.
Blackwater now works for the Secretary of Defense, since apparently Ms. Rice didn't even know they worked for her!
A second tier FEMA guy held a fake news conference--having flunkies ask him questions he wrote!
A Voting Right Director, whose responsibility is to enforce 1965 voting rights, said we didn't need to worry about elderly black folks having voting i.d., since they died early, anyway. We don't take care of them and don't intend to do so! (I don't think he said the last sentence, just thought it!)
It is obvious what is going on here. Republicans do not believe in regulations nor aid for disasters--especially sorry poor people. The rich dudes in California will get cheap money now to rebuild on the fire line. I didn't see one poor Californian at the stadium, but I guess they don't live out in the civilized hills, in the mansions
Also, Merrill Lynch lost 8,000,000,000 billion dollars, and expect to lose 4,000,000,000 billion more soon. All due to improper loaning of bank money to those who could not and would not pay for increased interest rates.
The CEO was retired with 177 million dollars severance! Wonder what he would have got if they had made a profit?
The Central Bank is bailing the banks out of their mess by reducing the interest rate about 20% to these banks, money which you and I will will eventually pay on our loans, or on our investments.
What happened to the republican theory of: let the market decide what happens to things? Aren't banks included in that theory?
Oh, where is Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt?

I hate to tell you this and I hope it doesn't come as too much of a shock, but, Teddy and Frank are dead. I had hoped someone would have hinted this to you.

The Tyrone posts are much more interesting than your incoherent ranting. Besides, you couldn’t tell a rich Californian from a poor one.
