« Stern: Americans "Could Care Less About the Rest of Humanity" | Main | Finally, Another German Voice We Can Agree With... »


Thank you, my friend, for this tribute. I feel blessed to live in Texas, where every street corner has a fireman with his boot out to collect for Katrina victims, and every shopping mall or bank has high schoolers washing cars to collect money for victims. The response to the hundreds of thousands of displaced fellow Americans makes me proud to be an American again.

The 13% of our population that gets all the attention of mainstream media when they misbehave, i.e. Cindy Sheehan, is not what our country is made of, thank you God! It's made of folks who trekked from all over the country to drown her stupidity, only to be ignored by MSM! Her 100 moonbats received the attention, the thousands who arrived to counter her were totally ignored by the media.

Dear Dagney,

The true heroes of this catastrophe is the state and citizens of the lone star state! You've opened your hearts and homes and churches and schools and hospitals and organizational skills and and and to the citizens of New Orleans. Thank God for Texas!!! Thanks Texas and Texans!

Too many people are forgetting 9/11 was an act of War.
A Hurricane is an act of nature. They must be thought of and dealt with differently.

I think the left and the MSM (the MSM everywhere) totally want to ignore this. In Europe they say 9/11 was tragic but, you “had it coming.” What the heck is up with that? No one “has it coming.” If Africa rose up today and smote Europe who colonized it, raped it, and left it the toilet it is today would they say that Europe “had it coming” too?

We should never forget who carried out 9/11 and we should never stop hunting them down and killing them. We should refrain from comparing it to an act of nature, it wasn't, it was an act of humans. We must react to it differently, even on the emotional level.

I fully agree, SPOD. Still, I am thankful for the way Americans respond to hard times delivered by man or mother nature. We pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, take care of each other, and take necessary action.

9/11 and Katrina have this in common: dealing with them will take years of patience and resolute determination in the face of those who would prefer we fail.

SPOD, the only point being made is that adversity brings those of us who still have backbone, together. The causitive factors require different responses but our society continues along the same path. Candy Sheehan can go swim down a New Orleans street.

Just so I am not misunderstood. I wanted to separate the two tragic occurrences. I see 9//11's impact diluted every time I see lame comparisons against that infamous act on that date.

9/11's predictable response is best represented so: "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." (from the film Tora! Tora! Tora!) Our response to 9/11 has been and will be as such a thing, a terrible resolve. We are in it for the long haul. Much longer than WW2 took.

The response to this tragic natural disaster called Katrina will be rolling up our sleeves and putting things back better than before. It's our natural response. It will be done without anger at mother nature or God if you believe in either one.

Surely we will keep moving forward and away from adversity. It's hard for our people to stay stagnant or stationary, no matter what the obstacle or, how hard the MSM tries to convince us our natural fears are right and that change is bad. We in the US are born to change. If we were born or if we came here to be part “us”, we are people of transformations. The US is in constant flux. No matter what hand we are dealt most of us will not wring our hands and give up, even if that is what the MSM and our other enemies would like us to do. We keep moving forward and pursuing happiness. This natural disaster in no different than other challenges we have seen or will see and we will as always overcome it in time.
