Bull shit. Why couldn't the gov. call all the school buses in the state to go down and get them a week ago?

Why is the gov. turning away donations of food and clothing?

Why is the gov. taking poor and injured people and dumping them off in the middle of cities to fend for themselves?

Why are the few police left trying to stop looting of property over saving lives?

Why is the army in combat mode instead of rescue mode?

Why are relief experts being cut off from communications and authority?

I'll tell you why:  

POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC VALUE

When its all said and done, people will return to their lives and the hatred against Bush will simmer. Bush will have saved the US a lot of money in insurance claims and medical expenses. No need to rebuild the poor, better to just erase them, right?

Bush will use the savings to start a war in Iran just in time to change guards during the next election.

Meanwhile, the serious rescue efforts are just off the horizon, racing to repair the oil refineries now that gas is up to $3:50 a gallon.

Sound like conspriacy? What else could be the reason for saying no to help when help is ready?

Deirdre,

Are you saying that if more people vote, someone else would be elected
and this sort of thing would not happen?

I see no reason to believe that.  It would seem that basic statistics is
against you on this (FWIW)

I know of no theory that postulates: "If all the people who did not vote
had voted, then elections would come out different."

I DO think that there may be many benefits from getting people more
involved with elections (more dialog, more participation, more vlogs!, etc)

But I also feel that it will take more than votes to change the "results".

I also feel that the difference you point out is important to many: it
is our choice to vote or not!


at least for the moment ;)


The main point is this: with big voter turnouts or not, both places
suffered horribly.
