Katrina is a terrorist

Or she should be. She did more than what bin Laden could do with a nuke. She destroyed an American city. But that's Mother Nature you say. Yes, I agree, but look what she's done. She did what bin Laden wanted, without having to sacrifice a single Mujaheddin.

One bitchy storm will cause us the same hardships. If you don't think we've been dealt a body blow by Katrina, think again. Do you realize what $5 gas prices will do to this 'bubbly' economy? To the people with variable-interest rate or interest-only mortgages and home equity loans? To the people with big cars (right or wrong) who can no longer afford to get to work or make their payments? The effects of this storm will haunt us in ways we can't even imagine yet.

It was a wake up call to us, a microcosm of the bad decisions made over the past 5 years. The lack of funding, the lack of preparedness, the myopia of this administration (256th Louisiana is sitting in Iraq) and the Republican Party. Along with 9/11 and Iraq, Chimpy Inc owns Katrina as well.
