Re the severe flooding in the past week in Iowa and the upper Mississippi River....
The self reliance shown by people of the mid-west stands so far apart from the "people" in New Orleans that were
in the exact same situation. I say again, THE EXACT SAME SITUATION!!!
Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks
affected by the floods?
Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn't solved the problem? Asking
where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are?
Why isn't the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago?
When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines ?
Where are Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks?
Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets?
When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a "vanilla" Iowa, because that's the way God wants it?
Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism?
Where are the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people?
How come in 2 weeks, you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?
