IMPEACH the Bush Barbarians

Rachel Corrie, a principled young American peace protester who was crushed under a Caterpillar sent by the Israelis to demolish another home in occupied Palestine. When Rachel stepped out in front of the bulldozer - the Israeli military simply drove over her.

Her story has been minimized or hardly shown in the Orwellian state of the USA, where "free press" is a thing of the past, if ever.

The raison d’être of the Bush administration is war in the Middle East in order to protect America from terrorism and to insure America’s oil supply. On both counts the Bush administration has failed catastrophically.

Bush’s single-minded focus on the "war against terrorism" has compounded a natural disaster and turned it into the greatest calamity in American history. The US has lost its largest and most strategic port, thousands of lives, and 80% of one of America’s most historic cities is under water.
If terrorists had achieved this result, it would rank as the greatest terrorist success in history.

Prior to 911, the Federal Emergency Management Agency warned that New Orleans was a disaster waiting to happen. Congress authorized the Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Project (SELA) in order to protect the strategic port, the refineries, and the large population.

However, after 2003 the flow of funds to SELA were diverted to the war in Iraq. During 2004 and 2005 the New Orleans Times-Picayune published nine articles citing New Orleans’ loss of hurricane protection to the war in Iraq.

Every expert and newspapers as distant as Texas saw the New Orleans catastrophe coming. But President Bush and his insane government preferred war in Iraq to protecting Americans at home.

Bush’s war left the Corps of Engineers only 20% of the funding to protect New Orleans from flooding from Lake Pontchartrain. On June 18, 2004, the Corps’ project manager, Al Naomi, told the Times-Picayune: "the levees are sinking. If we don’t get the money to raise them, we can’t stay ahead of the settlement."

Despite the dire warnings delivered by the 2004 hurricane season, the Bush administration made deep budget cuts for flood control and hurricane funding for New Orleans. The US Senate, alarmed at the Bush administration’s insanity, was planning to restore the funding for 2006. But now it is too late. Many multiples of the funding that would have saved the city now have to be spent to rescue it.

Not content with leaving New Orleans unprotected, it took the Bush administration five days to get the remnants of the National Guard not serving in Iraq, along with desperately needed food and water, to devastated New Orleans. This is the slowest emergency response by the US government in modern times. By the time the Bush administration could organize any resources for New Orleans, many more people had died and the city was in total chaos.

Despite the most dismal performance on record, Bush’s Homeland Security Secretary, Michael Chertoff, said on Thursday that the Bush administration has done a "magnificent job

Bush is doing such a marvelous job that ol neo con north - Stephen Harper cannot wait to replicate him. Our census system (hardware/software) has already been contracted to Lockheed Martin, the largest military industrial contractor in the world who also happens to be in the top 14 companies in human rights abuses and continues to grow as an interrogation firm.

While the Premier of BC has sold our medical records to an American firm under a ten year contract, passing (without notification) our medical records to a foreign firm.

The society of psychopathic narcissistic
beings whose brains do not appear to have developed past the reptilian stage.

For all intents and purposes they appear devoid of empathy, kindness, integrity, or even basic reason and common sense.

Money is all that is required - and their baseline for everything.

Really, the utter arrogance of believing that you speak for God.
