The Lone Star Times of Texas begins its latest pile of tripe
with the following words:
You know the Left is cracking up when natural disasters bring out the politics in them instead of concern for their fellow man.
That's what those right-wing bastards want
, isn't it? Now that their Fearless Leader has well and truly loused up, they want the left to play it nice. They want us not to politicize this disaster, even though W politicized 9/11 shamelessly.
Well, screw that. Bush is at fault,
and we must remind the world of this fact relentlessly.
If the conservative pundits take offense at that message, good
. That just means they're worried that our words will have an impact.
As noted two posts below, Bush ignored global warming, which caused the temperature of the sea's surface in the Gulf of Mexico to rise. The Lone Star Times
responds to this undeniable fact of history thus:
What about the great Galveston hurricane of 1900, which killed about 6,000 people out of the population of 37,000 and devastated the city? Were we emitting tons of carbon dioxide back then...?
Well, actually, yeah
, though not nearly to the current degree. But that is not the issue.
The issue is this: Scientists agree that the global warming made the Gulf of Mexico measurably hotter this past year than it otherwise would have been. This is a fact which even the most Jesus-addled red state fantasy-prone dunderhead cannot ignore.
And that rise in temperature transformed what should have been a manageable hurricane into an ultra-catastrophe that makes the tragedy of Galveston look pleasant
(Yes, I've seen pictures of what occurred in that town way back when. The current disaster hit much
harder and wider.)Global warming is real.
Yet our brethren in the scarlet zones refused to acknowledge that fact. They voted for a president who preferred fantasy to fact.
Now they come, hands outstretched, to their more prosperous blue state cousins. Not only do they dare to ask us for further handouts, they actually have the audacity to lecture us
about our politics.
We Californians and New Yorkers already
pay far more to the federal government than we receive -- unlike the folks in Texas and Alabama and Louisiana, who take and take and TAKE. And then they take some more
-- even as they lecture us
about spending. What sheer gall!
Now those mother- (and sister- and brother-) fucking red state LEECHES want Californians to open their wallets even wider. Those Bush-loving Darwin-hating quasi-retarded brutishly-primitive hillbillies
want us to fork over more of our hard-earned money in order to get them out of a deadly fix they brought upon themselves.
Newsflash, y'all: If you want money from us blue-staters, you're also going to have to listen to our words. That's the price.
No, we will not
listen to anything you have to say in response. You are leeches. Leeches do not have the right to a response.
You want us to give you a hand-out? Fine, we'll give it to you -- but ONLY if you sit still, hold your bloody tongues (bite 'em until they bleed, if you have to) and let a much-deserved lecture sink in.
No lecture, no hand-out. It's that simple. You have to pay the price; otherwise, get the money from Jesus.
The lecture comes down to this: BUSH CAUSED THIS DISASTER.
And YOU caused this disaster, you southern soft-heads, because you voted for that ape.
Bush caused this disaster by ignoring global warming. He caused it by listening to quack pseudoscientists instead of real scientists.
Bush caused this disaster by un-funding SELA, a program designed to keep levees at proper strength in New Orleans. A simple fact of history: New Orleans -- the one major city in the south with culture and style -- was obliterated by Bush's refusal to fund hurricane and flood protection measures. Unforgivable!
Bush caused this disaster by squashing FEMA. Money was diverted from that agency to Iraq, leaving our emergency services impotent.
Bush caused this disaster by transferring the National Guard to Iraq, where they serve only one purpose: THEFT. Instead of protecting American citizens, our troops now protect Haliburton and other companies, who are carrying out their evil plan to buy up everything worth buying in that country. The money is being siphoned out of Iraq and into the pockets of Cheney, Bush and their greedy cronies.
Bush caused this easily-forecast disaster by not having troops on hand to evacuate citizens.
Bush caused this catastrophe by fiddling -- or GIT-tarring -- while New Orleans drowned.
That's the message you need to hear, you barbaric, Jesus-addled, Limbaugh-tomized red-state hicks
And you will sit there and listen to it and say NOTHING in response. We blue-staters are sick to death of your arrogant lies and smears and fake science and supernaturalistic yawpings and ludicrous self-deceits.
You literally cannot continue to exist unless we blue-staters give you money. The situation is that simple. You have been leeching off of us for years, and now you depend on our charity for your very lives.
So if you Jesusmaniac simpletons really want that cash, you will just sit there and SHUT UP and not say ONE DAMN WORD in your defense.
BUSH CAUSED THIS DISASTER. YOU
CAUSED THIS DISASTER BY VOTING FOR BUSH.
You don't like that message? Then don't take our money!
If I read ONE MORE article in which a science-hating red state pundit attacks progressives, I'm going to take the money I was going to donate to disaster relief and spend it on a nice Thai meal. And I'm going to suggest that all other progressives do likewise.
I'm going to say "DROWN AND DIE, YOU ARROGANT HILLBILLY SOUTHERN-FRIED LEECHES!!
As Shakespeare said, you did make love to this employment. You inflicted your fate on yourselves -- by inflicting Bush upon the world.
