    Wonder how long before they start demanding a Federal holiday to commemorate being too stupid to get from in front of a Cat 5 hurricane?

    And it seems the Evacuees from Katrina are just as horrible to deal with as they have been all this time.

    Still demanding handouts they've been taught to expect as a right.

    AKIR - Louisiana Purchase

    Where was FEMA? What do they gain from Katrina?
    And why it take so long to save us but so fast to clean up?
    Who's in charge of them green bucks?
    Cause they supposed to give survivors least two G's plus
    I need much in answers; was it because, they live below standards
    and drugs ran rapid that it's quiet up in the cabinet?
    Who was on call, did they really drop the bomb?
    Did they say {fuck} it? We're reminded 'bout them damn walls
    Can we call 'em levies? Did the water get heavy and overrun the town
    or did people come knock 'em down?
    Are they tryna help 'em out or tryna kick 'em out?
    When you see them come around to evacuate a house
    Who has insurance in one of the country's most poorest, communities?
    Isn't this country for you and me?
    Separatin families, destroyin unity, conquer through divide
    Are they gonna help us survive?
    Or is it genocide, do they wanna help and all revive?
    Or will it be, gentrified? Watch the choppers in the skies
    No supplies, devils in disguise, spinnin stories on my people's lives
    Standin by while they just lettin us die (die)


    I feel like the whole world gone crazy
    The stadium smells like {fuckin} dead babies
    And old people, goin through rigamortis
    While the government tortoise, slow to support us
    Instead they record us and give us self-righteous orders
    Reporters implore us, not to break the law
    I saw a {bitch} talkin on TV, I wanna break her jaw
    A teleprompter, can never describe what I saw
    The phones are dead, no police and no E.M.T.
    Powerless like we got hit, with an E.M.P.
    It reminds me of the days when we lived as slaves
    They just denied the migrant workers, federal aide
    And people tell me poverty, doesn't have any color
    Well it does down here mother-{fucker}
    And now they talk about, rebuildin where nothin is workin (nothin!)
    Just lawyers gettin more contracts by Halliburton

    We restored the fresh corner on some Mardi Gras {shit}
    Swervin down Bourbon - on some party town {shit}
    Drinkin {fuckin} liquor, I'm speakin real candid
    Who knew, N.O. would turn president land this
    dude got us lookin savage - like newer reports
    Get the rich ones out the tellies, and ignored the warts
    Scores of people perched on top roofs
    96 hours with no damn rule, but who the {fuck} wouldn't shoot?
    "So would I" says the cat
    Brother stranded, wife and seed on his side, {gat} on the lap
    Now anarchy, rule the street
    Mayor cuss the government out, on the TV all you hear is bleeps
    Despair dro, some the same
    Super dope synonymous with pain, ironically they change quotes the same
    I know firsthand I got blood (yeah) you heard from me
    Second line been should be playin for eternity


    Walk with imagination, prepare for the devastation
    of these poor people bein displaced in our own nation
    No food or water with four days waitin
    Fearlessly they're flyin over to assess the situation
    Dirt they doin to my folks blatant
    Satan they causes, breakin they clauses, lyin to our faces
    Take a step back, let's retrace this
    Cats were breakin into stores cause they were runnin out of patience
    Most of them gunshots you heard about, yeah
    They were pointed in the air cause the bullets were flares
    But regardless if the media cares or not
    We should still share a lot of truth, keep stirrin the pot
    into a spicy gumbo, dig deep, let your funds go
    Never know a storm might hit Flatbush or Ludlow
    Who do you think they'll save, them or us?
    Mother Nature doesn't choose sides, cash flow does

    I wonder when they will realize that they might actually have to do something on their own to benefit their own lives.

    It's not even that, man. I mean, I've been talking to people who tell me that they used to live in decent to nice neighborhoods until the evacuees started to move in and turned it to shit with violence, etc. I never hear positive stories.

    This entire circle jerk, is good stuff. I don't think it will be long before the GOP and its supporters alienate every black, every hispanic, every gay or lesbian, and every arab or muslim-american in the country. And will become merely the party of angry, southern white men -- A permanent minority party, at it were.

    Yup, remind me again of the last 5 Presidents which two have or had the most blacks and Hispanics in high power positions in the Federal Government? Ohh and remind me again what party 90 percent to 95 percent of black voters already vote for?

    Over a million openly gay people voted for Bush in 2004 as well and last I checked Hispanics are not a block vote for either party. As for Muslims, they are less than 2 percent of the US population and I bet they are not a block vote either.

    But your right, give Liberals enough time and they will find someway to pay off Hispanics to vote for them like they have Blacks. Selling out the Country isn't a problem as long as in the process a Liberal is in charge.

    Riiight.

    African-americans can't think for themselves. They had to be bribed to vote Democratic.

    Thanks for proving my point about the attitudes in your party!

    I repeat.... Which President has had the most Blacks and Hispanics in positions of High Government offices in the Federal Government? And which party attacked those Blacks as "Uncle Tom" sell outs, ran racist cartoons depicting them in ways that were reminiscent of Jim Crow days and tried to block appointments of Blacks through out the Government?
