The return of Cindy Sheehan

She's back!!!

It has been one month and one week since I sat in a ditch in Crawford, Tx. I can hardly believe it when I think of it myself. So much has happened in that time, and really, so little.
Really? Last I checked a huge hurricane flooded a major U.S. city.

When I reflect on how the mother of the imbecile who is running our country said that the people who are in the Astrodome are happy to be there, it angers me beyond comparison. The people in LA who were displaced have nice, if modest homes that are perfectly fine. I wonder why the government made them leave at great expense and uproot families who have been living in their communities for generations.
Really? You should explore this just a little bit. Do you really know a thing about hurricanes???

Even though Algiers [Louisiana] came through Katrina relatively unscathed, our federal government tried to force (mostly successfully) the people out of the community.
It's called an evacuation, hun. They do them all the time.

They didn’t want to go to the Superdome, because their homes were pretty intact: they wanted to stay and have food and water brought to them.
Yes, because the government has nothing better to do than be waiters for the morons who stayed behind. Oh, wait, the LA governor and mayor were pointing fingers the whole time. And we all know that expecting people to take care of themselves is insanely unrealistic.

When I think of how many other poor neighborhoods are being decimated and made so desperate and hopeless by the failed policies of the Bush administration, it makes me so angry.
Yea, because we all know that Bush warmed up the gulf to insanely warm tempratures and steered it to New Orleans. Riiiiiiight.

One thing that truly troubled me about my visit to Louisiana was the level of the military presence there.

But what I saw was a city that is occupied. I saw soldiers walking around in patrols of 7 with their weapons slung on their backs. I wanted to ask one of them what it would take for one of them to shoot me. Sand bags were removed from private property to make machine gun nests.

You should have told them who you were. That might have been enough.

The vast majority of people who were looting in New Orleans were doing so to feed their families or to get resources to get their families out of there.
Yes, because that DVD player's going to get you out of town.

America stepped up to the plate to hold George accountable for the abomination in Iraq.
Maybe that imaginary one in your head.

If George Bush truly listened to God and read the words of the Christ, Iraq and the devastation in New Orleans would have never happened.
I consider that an insult to my faith.

George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self from power. The only way America will become more secure is if we have a new administration that cares about Americans even if they don't fall into the top two percent of the wealthiest.
Maybe when you shut up.
