A New Two-Front War?

Now that Hurricane Katrina has probably killed thousands of Americans and threatened our oil supply, I suppose that we can expect the Bush administration to formally declare the War on Mother Nature. This unprecedented attack--for which there was, as in some other cases, some precedent and plenty of warning--should simplify things considerably for the administration. Assaults on the environment need no longer be justified. Right-thinking citizens will, in fact, demand that the government take action to subdue this newly-revealed enemy. There are precedents now, and we need to show that, once again, these colors don't run--even when very, very soggy. That a "War on Nature" (or shall we call it something like a "a global struggle against violent inclemency" from the outset?) isn't likely to reduce such destructive acts of nature, and might in fact increase them, shouldn't deter us. Right? As I said, there are precedents. . .

My compliments. I have enjoyed your Blog. You have so many interesting things to report, please keep up the good work.

Did you know, that nearly all of us pay too much for their car insurance? That we are leaving a lot of money on the table by failing to compare properly the rates of all those different insurance companies?
I've made a new Blog just about Cheaper Auto Insurance. You are friendly invited to a visit and to learn more about this interesting topic.
Thanks again and keep up the good work.

A witty post, even though I don't think I agree with the point behind it....

Very good.
The Global Struggle Against Extreme Weather, I'm sure will be the title. Gitmo Part II will be set up in the city formerly known as New Orleans, and the weatherman will be questioned!

Soon, the truth will be revealed, and Bush shall fall.

Wait, wait, wait. What needs to be done is complete the work and project the flippin Corp of Engineers has screwed up for over forty years! As for Mother Earth, yes, we need to drill in AK and FL, now. It's that simple. if we reduce the dependence on Saudi A to provide oil, who needs them. We aint gonna start driving electric cars. Fix the oil crap once and for all. Drill and build refineries, get the oil companies to ease costs, eliminate taxes passed to consumers and Saudi Arabia goes away! By the way, you're getting torched with SPAM. I was to, but for some reason it's stopped!

Excellent post!

Of course, in line with Bush's usual logic, he's going to declare War on Mars too, as it's obviously in league with Mother Earth......

Look for Bush to start referring to hurricanes as "The Evilblowers."
