a wake up call from heaven

So many people say this. It’s absurd.

If hurricanes are send by God to punish us, why do hurricanes only come up from the Atlantic, hitting only the Gulf and the East Coast?

How come hurricanes don’t sometimes come down from Canada? Or up from Mexico? Or down from the Rocky Mountains?

Could it possibly be that the shape of the land masses, the currents of the oceans, the winds, the tempatures, the turning of the Earth all contribute to the cause and directions and location of hurricanes?

Naw. God sends ‘em.

First of all the video is worthless.  If you haven’t already tried to watch it, don’t bother; it’s about one inch in diameter and it’s just a fuzzy blob of moving colors.

Fadel Abdallah:  You are obviously a troll.  The stereotypical arab name combined with the sarcastic post is racially insensitive and not funny.  The fact of the matter is, there is plenty of evidence that the elections may have been stolen; while you may consider the idea erroneous, there’s nothing illogical about beleiving it to be a valid possibility.

Also, while Bush may indead be an idiot controlled by corperate greed, the idea that he is behind 911 is even more idiotic and only beleived by extremist Muslims that have been thoroughly brainwashed by their anti-“infidel” media and I think you know damn well it’s not a beleif commonly held by liberals.  And the idea that God would punish innocent, poor, black people of the South (most of whom voted against Bush) with utter devistation because of Bush’s policies is the most idiotic thing I’ve ever heard a troll try to pull off.

You aren’t fooling anyone.  Your thorough failure at making liberals look ill-meaning only makes you conservatives look desperate and idiotic.

As we commemorate the first anniversary of Katrina, I would like to record my feelings about how bad an omen was this for our country. Just nine months into his first stolen election, we were hit with the tragic events of 9/11. Whether this was an inside job or it was some outside enemy, history still needs to give its verdict. However, the fact that it happened on Bush’s watch is bad enough of an omen for people to wake up.
Almost nine months into his second term, our country was devastated by the horrors of Katrina. This was, for sure, a wake up call from heaven; another bad omen about this evil imposed on the nation in the name of democracy and security.
How bad it has to get till the average American wakes up to the horrors committed by this administration in their names and with their tax-payers money!
