Corps used the internet to attack its critics

Thousands of people – mostly children, elderly, the handicapped, and those who stayed behind to look after them – were stranded for a week exposed to the elements for a week without food, water, or medical care.

 

The Times-Picayune which was aware of the real identity of the people making these attacks permitted them to go on and is now helping shield the Corps by refusing to turn over its Internet logs.

I guess this is what they call a “government-private sector partnership.”

Hard to believe, but it’s all documented

What Else do You Need For Proof?

Today, while warnings continue regarding the breaching of levee’s in at least 37 different locations along the Mississippi and affecting several states, congress took it upon itself to pass the FISA bill allowing the spy agencies to spy without warrant or reason on any American citizen.  I not only question the constitutional legality of this law, but also, the timing of its passage. 

While the Midwest sinks under water and the agricultural heartland of the country is declared a national disaster, congress could only muster enough interest to pass yet another invasive and intrusive law guaranteed to give the federal government and all its spy agencies the right to declare a surveillance war on the people of the United States.  And like the compliant sheeple we have become, few of us will complain.  After all, we have to be tough on those terrorists.

The neo-con snarks that operate inside the beltway are declaring some kind of victory over grassroots movements who aggressively opposed the communistic FISA bill.  Obviously, some people are just so clueless that it never occurs to them that they will be spyed on too.  They don’t worry though, because they haven’t done anything wrong so they don’t mind having their privacy invaded or their rights erroded.  Personally, it is exactly because I haven’t done anything wrong that I do mind. 

And while this victory dance by neo-cons continues, thousands of acres of grain crops are being washed away and people in those areas are scrambling to save what they can of personal possessions before the water takes even those and makes their homes uninhabitable. 

Considering this nightmare and the coming impact on food supplies that will result…..wouldn’t you have thought that our congress would have been focused on the long term affects?  Maybe instead of passing legislation that is so Anti-American and giving the New World Order another open door to step through…….maybe they might have spent their time more affectively, more beneficially by trying to secure food that is going to be in short supply as a result of these floods?  But, no.  It is apparently far more important to pass legislation against America’s people than it is to prepare for a food shortage to make sure they can eat.

Maybe another line they could have pursued is why billions have been dumped into the Army Corps of Engineers over the years, and yet these levee’s are failing.  Our infrastructure is allowed to deteriorate to the point where privatization seems the only way out.  In order to make this appealing, the infrastructure must be allowed not only to deteriorate, but also to devolve into such a state of disrepair, to become such a threat to the survival of the population that people are begging for help and will take it from where ever it seems to be coming from.  This is especially effective when those begging to be helped are swimming past their homes. 

Maybe instead of spending billions and billions on unwinnable wars of aggression, or subsidizing and crediting huge oil cartels for raping the American public, or giving tax cuts to people that are obscenely wealthy and who have no allegiance or loyalty to this country……maybe congress could have spent some time on figuring out how to shore up our infrastructure.  But doing that might have presented a future obstacle to selling off sovereign land and constructed infrastructure to foreign corporations and investors and private investors here at home.

So the Midwest floods and drowns and floats away along with future food sources and congress fiddles while the water rises.  If today in congress did not give you the proof you need that our government on almost all levels is dysfunctional and no longer concerned with those it is supposed to represent, I don’t know what will. 

Congress has asked for 200 billion for flood damage costs.  How nice.  Another 200 billion on top of the 10 trillion we already have in national debt…….and where will this money be borrowed from?  And what will the government use as collateral on this new debt?  The land that is currently under water? 

The floods are a national disaster for many reasons, but congress is also a national disaster that needs tending to.  These people have to go.  We need to implement term limits for all elected officials and appointee’s.  That would include the court appointee’s right up and through the Supremes.  No one in our government should be allowed to make a career out of politics.  It’s not conducive to good government. 

My heart goes out to my neighbors and friends and family here in the Midwest who are losing everything in these floods.  I just think its unfortunate that the Potomac doesn’t do us all a favor and breach its banks.
