Because you have got to have heard about this already...

Quoting a news network's sidebar: "Bush: The worst disaster to hit the U.S in recent history" (read into that, what you may...)

So, Mother Nature once again, proves that she is a mighty force to reckon with. The disaster that occured in New Orleans just recently have only served to fortify her true strength, we humans too often take for granted. Yes, we could go on and on about how sad and depressing the incident was, and how like Marvin the Paranoid Android said in Hitchhiker's Guide, "It's all going to end in tears", but really. Where's the conspiracy in that?

We throw this question to you: Why did the government of USA, undoubtedly the strongest in the world (in terms of economic and military power) choose to react so slowly in dealing with the aftermath of the disaster?
Fact: The majority of residents in New Orleans are African-American. More accurately, African-Americans make up a total of 67.25% of the demographic there- or at least according to Wikipedia it does.

Fact: The idea of a 'United' States of America has often been considered one of the greatest ironies . History tells us that racial lines have proven to be a source of tension time and again in America. Since the early days of slavery during Abraham Lincoln's time to the divided 1960s during the Civil Rights War, and even to present day America with the controversial election of Bush as president in 2000, America has constantly proved itself unable to maintain a united front. Therefore it comes to no surprise that racial lines would be incited in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

(Side feminist rant, Karen: By the way, why are typhoons and hurricanes, source of disasters basically, given female names?! The connotations. Jeez. What? We will destroy everything when we somehow hold an ounce of power? Jesus Christ.)

The goverment of America did not respond immediately to the events, leaving masses stranded at the Superbowl stadium and others stranded in the confines of their house. Rescue operations were conducted pretty slow, considering that this is the very same country that entered Iraq without much hesitations and delay. Where were the same speedy troops? Did it matter less because this wasn't about oil?

We propose that there is a major correlation between the delay in rescue operations and the issue of race in regards to the tragedy in New Orleans. The fact that the general population merely earns average wages as well come into play. What can a bunch of black people who don't contribute as much to the economy offer to America? Keep in mind, this should not be read as a racist statement. Ad and I are peace-loving people who believe in 'a fair go' and doing whatever that rocks your boat. Just check the facts. African-Americans on average are more likely to drop out of high school, be unemployed, and earn less than a Anglo-American would. Statistics are worth a thousand words. Less people to take out unemployment benefits, means more money for military expenditure. More money for military expenditure, means a more powerful America. And a more powerful America, means a happy Bush! (The flip side: A happy Bush, means many unhappy fervant anti-Bush supporters.)

The fact that blacks are more likely to vote Democrat should also be taken into account. In presidential elections, voting lines have been the same for ages. The east and west coasts of America will vote Democrat while the middle bits will support the Republicans. It is also not a coincidence that Middle America is primarily populated by whites (think Texan hicks and Alabama hill-billies) while immigrants from foreign countries and blacks generally live in the east or west coasts. No doubt, Bush, a Republican, has not have an easy presidency. The guy has received plenty of flack from everyone and anyone. Some still insist that he isn't a legitimate president! So, wouldn't it be such a convenience if plenty of African-Americans aren't there to vote in the next election?

Oh no... We're getting spammed.

We are such enlightened people. Lol. Glad to see that after NINE posts then you actually only find something you like. Lol. (Better late than never though)

Jeez. Ad and I must sound like Bush-bashing people. I don't have any problems with him. I just find that there a lot of criticisms in the way he's running America. But then again, other leaders of the world have also received criticism. Case in point: John Howard. *Aussie, aussie Oi! Oi! Oi!* That's like the whole Malaysia Boleh bit, btw. Plus I just can't get over how he actually won the presidency. It wasn't actually the people's vote, dammit!

Who's annonymous?

If Bush was running America right, there wouldn't BE any criticisms. So, what does that tell you? As for the other world leaders, they're getting flack (in part) because of their loyalty TO Bush (or America, whichever works). It's a lose lose situation. Loyal to Bush - you get flack. Not loyal to Bush - you get flack too.

At least he can't be voted into office again...

But think about it. Every leader in the world will receive flack even if they are doing everything right.

Mahathir: He has done so much for Malaysia yet he has also received tons of criticisms. His actions during the Asian financial crisis circa 1998(?) to not depend on the IMF was deemed a failure by the western world.

Lee Kuan Yew: Same as above. Yet he receives flack for his 'totalitarian'-like, strict ruling yada yada yada.

Junichiro Koizumi: Pretty face leader who's popularity does not correlate with his contributions to Japan.

Howard: Aside from the fact that's he is Bush's dog, the way he's running Australia... Quite unsatisfactory.

Even Nelson Mandela has cropped some criticism!

I just think that so long as you're a politician, you're always going to receive flack from someone. Same can be said for people in general, innit? No one's perfect and we don't live in utopia.

Hmm. Well said. Basically, if you become a politician just get ready to be screwed left, right and center larh... No one gets more flack than politicians.

Unless, of course, if you're William Hung...
