Katrina was the big one. No not the one Fred Sanford was clutching his heart for in every episode of Sanford and Son. The big hurricane. The mother of all devastations. The King Kong of hurricanes.
Picture this. A category 5 (the highest category there is) is bearing down on New Orleans. We are in trouble, folks. Call out the National Guard, call out the FBI, call out the military. And the New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin calls for a MANDATORY EVACUATION!
So, people stayed anyway. In Mississippi and Alabama, too. And a lot died and a lot are homeless and many are refugees along the roads in Louisiana. And the anger is starting to come out in them. "Why don't we have water, why don't we have food, why aren't we being evacuated". Well, that is because you ignored a mandatory evacuation and now they cannot help you. It is impossible for them to get aid to you fast enough.
And you know whose fault it is? George Bush. Yes, people, that's right. The liberals are already blaming him. I never thought I would see the day, but I guess nothing should surprise me anymore. They pull out some bill where he cut funding for those levees in New Orleans by 20%. As if 20% funding would have stopped a category 5 hurricane. Let me tell you, folks, from personal experience with the ocean and the sea, anything man made, no matter how strong, can be destroyed by mother nature using the ocean as her tool.
The Germans and some liberals even went so far as to say that we deserved it because of global warming. "Katrina should be a warning to the US about global warming"
. Thanks, guys, we knew we could count on you to make some wild ass statement about global warming. I wonder if global warming also caused this numbing disaster
? That's right. Well, maybe we could go back in H.G.Wells' time machine and stop the industrial revolution and see if that helped anything. I doubt it. The Kyoto Treaty and Accord were based on false assumptions. Both have been debunked. The data supporting each was erroneous.
So, we all understand that global warming is happening, but the wacko left thinks that car pollution is the major cause. I guess if we had data going back more than 100 years (you do know the world was created 4.5 or so billion years ago! The Big Bang theory says it was even longer at 15 billion years ago!), we might know if this were true. But, since the data was erroneous and has been debunked and the historical data only goes back 100 years, I tend to think they do not know enough about it yet and to completely remake our economy for something they are not sure about is complete folly.
Add to that a new study came out that in about 50% of all experiments, scientists make false assumptions and come to false conclusions, and all of a sudden you are venturing into the Wild Ass Guess arena, commonly known as WAG.Robert Kennedy, Jr. weighed in on the topic
. He claims that God may have punished Missisippi because Haley Barbour wrote a memo to George Bush that seemingly changed George Bush's mind about global warming. "Perhaps it was Barbour's memo that caused Katrina, at the last moment, to spare New Orleans and save its worst flailings for the Mississippi Coast". Robert Kennedy, Jr. should realize that no Kennedy should make jokes about water killing people. Just as Teddy should never give swimming lessons to anyone. Robert Kennedy, Jr. also said "The science is clear" about global warming. No, Bobby, the only thing clear is that the Kennedys are still bumbling around the political stage making any ridiculous statement they can to try and smear Bush and Republicans.
I guess at this point it would be in bad taste to say that all the deaths in the Kennedy family were God's punishment on them for Joe selling his soul to the devil to put John F. in the President's chair.
