...did you happen to tune in the hit-piece on W by NBC's Brian Williams Sunday night? Not one mention concerning the whereabouts of the NCAA, Jesse Jackson, or Al Sharpton.
What was depressing was the way he blamed the feds for not taking care of everyone immediately, not a word about the Governor not calling in the National Guard for looter control. Of course the local cops were undermanned, and we all heard they were only interested in taking guns away from the law abiding, a group they seemed to not be afraid to reprimand.
What struck me was the sheeple in that community that were absolutely unable to do anything for themselves, and waited in that Superdome for a savior to arrive and supply all their needs. I heard someone exclaim, "This City is dying," and I thought...the people in that city have been dead for a long, long time.
My thoughts kept returning to June 10, 1972 when Rapid City was hit with a flood that killed a higher percentage of population than Katrina did in New Orleans. Both were tragic, but we were so busy locating friends and relatives and cleaning our neighborhoods so we could move about, we hardly had time to worry about where the feds were and when we'd get taken care of.
What truley struck me in that entire hour long NBC puff piece, was how that community had become so dependant on the government to take care of them, there wasn't hardly an independant responsible soul, beyond the gangsters, hoodlums, and looters. How proud the left must feel. It's no wonder their only recourse is to jump on the bandwagon and blame the country for not taking care of all their lazy and irresponsible constituants.
