And here I was saying ok enough talk about Katrina and let me try and lively up the spirit by chatting a bit about back to school (don't worry will still do the first day of University post in a few) when along comes this:
Barbara Bush while touring a facility filled with some of those displaced from Hurricane Katrina had this to say "So many of the people here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this, this is working very well for them
And although Echo and Humanity Critic amongst others beat me to the punch on this story (yea I saw it Wednesday morning but was just too busy to blog) I just have this one thing to say. EEDIAT!!!! (idiot)
There I said it! sigh. What is wrong with that woman? She senile or she gone dotish or what? Does she think this is a makeover show for the poor where we're sending in an interior designer named Katrina to remodel these people's homes.
"Hmm lets give the room some more space. Those walls must simply go, and that wardrobe must be replaced".
"I think this place needs a bit of tweaking, I'm imagining water everywhere for that new aquatic look that's all the rage these days. Think Venice!"
Seriously Mrs Bush what kind of dumb-ass statement was that? Do you drink? Do you have a drug problem? Well at least I guess now we see which side of the family Dubya takes after.
So the folks were poor do you seriously think they are happier now that they are homeless and have lost all their possessions? What kind of logic is that? You actually believe things are better for these folks now that they are living in makeshift housing? What does that say about America the beautiful, land of a thousand opportunities?
And if these people are so poor that a hurricane striking is actually an upgrade to their existence what does that say about your son's leadership of the country and presidency?
No wonder Kanye said y'all don't like black people.
On another note CBC broadcasting is on strike here. You know Canada land of the strikes. So local community Radio CIUT (University of Toronto's broadcast station) has actually signed one of CBC's regular morning guys to do their morning show during weekdays on a volunteer basis.
I have a big issue with this. Personal but an issue nevertheless.
Why? Cause the usual morning shows on CIUT at least two or three days are West Indian music shows. So Monday morning I didn't get any King Turbo dancehall reggae show (although I usually forget that's on these days) and even worse this morning I wake up in the mood to listen to D'Bandit and Court Jester do the Worldwide show, the highlight of my week radio wise, and bring me some hot soca, dancehall and hip hop and get a brother moving this morning.
Instead I get to listen to some dude with the emotional range of a rock do the morning show. How am I supposed to get motivated by CBC's morning monotone where the man aint even sound like he wake up yet. I listen to 5 minutes and did ready to go back to sleep. Chupse!
And its the time of the year where the Kingdom of Soca djs would be playing all the new Bajan crop-over music too. I think this CBC guy better go hit the picket line and let me get back my shows in the morning cause I want my soca. And no soca or die wasn't a threat ......at least not yet anyways lol.
