Rich May Remain Rich Says Bush - Poor To Pay For Reconstruction 

The NY Times tells us that the rich won't have to worry about paying their share after Katrina:

"President Bush ruled out tax increases to pay for hurricane and flood recovery today, saying instead that federal spending would have to be cut to help the Gulf Coast recover."

Make rich people who are living off the poor's labor and spending chip in? Ha! Much better to cut social programs and divert funds to friend's companies that don't pay taxes, and provide kickbacks to the V.P.

Bush forgets that his economic policies are to blame for the 5 straight years of increased poverty in our crumbling nation, and that the tax cuts that he says help our economy (and that he wants to continue) will only push more of us into debt.

You'd think the rich might be getting nervous about now, but they are oblivious. Watch out, though. The poor are all on alert and do not like what the rich have been doing. And they know what they've been doing.

Rich People Worried That Poor Will Get 'Em 

The Guardian tells us the truth. It's all about money. Rich people have it and they don't want to share. They are so greedy in such a time of need that they'll hire armed guards to keep what they have. So sad.
"Hundreds of mercenaries have descended on New Orleans to guard the property of the city's millionaires from looters.

The heavily armed men, employed by private military companies including Blackwater and ISI, are part of the militarisation of a city which had a reputation for being one of the most relaxed and easy-going in America."

It's sad because they are greatly outnumbered. Like a hurricane, when this storm hits it will leave nothing standing. The poor are sick of the rich and their ongoing contempt for the planet and the people who live here. Go ahead and hire the guards... it will let us all know who is greedy, selfish, and afraid.
