Stevie Joe Talks About the Gulf Coast

President Numbnuts went down to visit some of the folks affected by Hurricane Katrina. Now, the fine citizens of Junebug Holler have lots of friends and family who were hit hard. So, this is personal to us, and the lack of progress has made some of us pretty darned mad. Shrub said that he helped to get Congress to appropriate $110 billion in relief funds. The rest is up to the state and local governments.

Congress appropriates the dough. State and local folks spend it. What the heck does the President do then? I'll tell you what he should do. He should lead. The President is not only the "Decider," but he needs to be a leader. If the White House felt that rebuilding the Gulf Coast was a priority, it would get done. Instead, he has left it for others to fix. It is quite clear that he feels that it is unimportant.

This is a national disgrace. The United States is the richest country in the world, and it has let down its own citizens. There should be as much outrage coast-to-coast as there is here in Junebug Holler. We all know that you need to take care of your own.

Mad as hell and not going to take it anymore,
Stevie Joe Parker
