Life is Totally Fair...


So, are we surprised that the victims of the California fires are getting the rock star treatment? The fires have conveniently occurred in what is basically a Republican stronghold, better known as the Orange Curtain. W and Ahhhnold have flown over the scene and have aid centers that rival the Ritz Carlton set up already. In one of the most population dense areas of the country, they have managed an evacuation of an enormous number of people. No Katrina here, folks. While I am truly glad that casualties have been low, it smacks of hypocrisy to me. Save the rich! And for goodness sakes, those folks need coffee and a comfy bed!

What makes it really disgusting is that Douchebag McChimp threw a shot at the state government of Louisiana while he was appearing with Arnold. It was totally classless.

Did you see pictures of the tent city carnival they set up at the baseball stadium? Those kids had ferris wheels and cotton candy, while the ones in NO had dead grannies and no water. I understand that a hurricane cuts off supplies, and it affects everyone in the area and not just pockets so there are people to volunteer in San Diego that aren't affected. But let's face it...if San Diego were a "chocolate city", or if the fires had hit the immigrant communities around the border instead of the posh hills where the immigrants work, it would have been a different story. I'm so glad you brought this up, as it's been really pissing me off.
