"Greatest country in the world?" Are we really? Over a year after the disaster caused by Katrina, there are still dead bodies floating in Louisiana! I can't believe it myself, but we all know it's true. We all also know that millions of dollars in construction contracts have been awarded there, so why isn't any "clean up" being done? http://www.wsws.org/articles/2006/aug2006/katr-a29.shtml (by the way, bite me if you don't like the site I posted this from, you can find it elsewhere as well) Well, the no-bid contracts we award for those little things aren't really supposed to solve problems, they're supposed to Make.Money.Fast for those to whom they're awarded, silly people. Now tell me, how the fuck is it possible for a company awarded millions, nay BILLIONS of dollars to build a building for training new Iraqi police- to build it so shitty that it's unlivable THIS fucking soon? Then, please tell me why no one seems to be very mad about this- did it just slip through the cracks in light of more pressing horrid behavior from Foley? Read this, it's important to know who we really are in the world, lest you don't know already: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/09/27/AR2006092702134_pf.html I'm completely SICK of this good 'ol boys club jacking each other off at our nation's expense. How are we ever supposed to hold our head high and proclaim that we're trying to improve a situation when it's appallingly obvious that we're only in it to bilk everyone in sight- their people as well as our own. Fucking disgusting.
