Not For Katrina!

  • Mouse woes and all, I felt kinda bad about the lack of postings for Sunday.

    So here is this wonderful photo I took recently, of a guy in a fast food restaurant, looking rather scruffy and mangy as I stood in front of him, in the queue.

    Above us, is the current McDonald's slogan, "Got Love?".

    I was looking up at it, and wondering if Mickey D's had gone all Valentine's or had found Christ, or what.

    And then I saw the baseball cap.

    "Katrina Sucks"

    Faster than you can say Ray Nagin Is a Retard, I positioned myself at the right angle, for one of the best juxtapositionings ever.

    As the commercial says, "priceless".

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    Tosh and tiffle! Why, there was one point where we had thought you were hit by a bus! You're a posting machine now, Vic! And my first read in the morning, since Night Owl Sundries puts out a Bacon and Eggs edition before even Fluffy awakens!

    Let's rebuild NO and Detroit both! That should keep America busy! Better still, let's let Dubai rebuild New Orleans! They're wacky enough to come up with something cool!

  • Based on your slogan, how's about a new hat for Mayor Nagin: "Raytard."

    LOL, yeah. :)

    Hey, it's winter. I started my blog in winter two years ago, and every winter I post some of my best work from Nov-March.

    Watch out, summertime...

    You're a posting machine now, Vic! And my first read in the morning, since Night Owl Sundries puts out a Bacon and Eggs edition before even Fluffy awakens!

    Fluffy! I think I know now what that means. ;)

    Hey, thanks for reminding me.

    Remember that post of mine a year ago, about the Dubai royal family 'creating' an archipelago of islands, known as The World?

    It should have moved along, by now. Let me see if I can do an update soon.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • OT:

    You know what New Blogger should have included?

    HTML (tags) on the comments, which you could just click to choose.

    I don't mind the < a h ref = ... > thingie, but it gets to be a pain sometimes.

  • "Raytard."

    So how can you explain that Raytard got re-elected?

    When he left the schoolbusses and his constituents marooned to their fates, and didn't order to open the Dome shelter, until practically when Katrina was hitting...and he's black!

    BTW, a while ago I found this ADL post, about Katrina.

    It bemoaned the racist and bigotted messages surrounding the horrible fate of the minorities, stuck in their homes (albeit some wanted to stay, of course. I know I never leave for shelters during our many hurricanes).

    You know where they found these racist and bigotted statements?

    On white-supremacist and anti-semitic websites.

    Well, DUH.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    New Orleans-style cronyism, New Orleanians bizarre love of/pride in that cronyism, and blaming the Feds for all of the problems after Katrina.

    Part of Louisana's problem is that they are suckers for a politician with a forked tongue, who pulls out the populist card whenever it suits.

    Now, this could describe many people, in many cities, but Huey Long wouldn't have made nearly the same impact in Florida, as he did in LA.

    And Nagin wouldn't have been reelected to dogcatcher in New York City.

    They seem to think that corruption, along with vice, adds to their uniqueness. That would be fine if the rest of the country didn't have to pay for it.

    Maybe you do...but his other name is "Wotan."

    Sorry, I come from Detroit, where someone more Stalinist than Kim Jong Il managed to get elected mayor for decades without anyone noticing.

    There's a great book in a Coleman Young biography; from Tuskeegee airman to true crusading lefty to feudal lord, all in one lifetime.

    Oh and Detroiters also elected someone who was currently in prison to Congress also.

    Raytard don't bother me at all...
