THINGS TO PONDER


"My God is good.Bin Laden's God is bad.His is a bad God. Saddam's God was bad except he didn't have one. he was a barbarian. We are not barbarians." harold pinter, winner of this year's nobel prize for literatrue, parodying President Bush in his nobel speech.:....
heehee..got ta loveit..


in a letter to the dallas am editorial page from the Biloxi Mississippi Sun Herald...
"Just weeks after Hurricane Katrina stormed ashore in south mississippi, president bush made a personal pledge taht the federal government would be a partner in the effort to rebuild our lives and our communities..now, months later, it is time for the president to renew that commitment...
the most pressing need for homeowners..is for the federal government to provide some means for them to rebuild their lives and property. Several proposals have been put forward,(but) the president has yet to endore, much less champion, any of these efforts. Yet, just last week, officials in his administration proposed that congress appropriate nearly $4 billion more to help rebuild the lives and property of Iraq. That figure was like a slap in the face to residents of south mississippi, because it is almost exactly the amount of money that Gov. Haley Barbour estimates would be needed to assist south mississippians who lived outside the flood plain but whose homes were damaged or destroyed by Katrina's storm surge..."
