Jackass Michael Moore is at it again ...
Politically blinded idiots like Michael Moore want you to believe that poverty, racial issues, the New Orleans disaster and everything else that's wrong in this world is caused by the Republicans.
These images are the six state senators for Orleans Parish. Of the six, only one is a Republican and only two are white. In the Louisiana House of Representatives, there are 14 seats from Orleans Parish and 11 of them are Democrats.
Here are some quotes Michael Moore uses to push his agenda:
"I assume the president's going to say he got bad intelligence ... I think that wherever you see poverty, whether it's in the white rural community or the black urban community, you see that the resources have been sucked up into the war and tax cuts for the rich." -- Congressman Charles B. RangelSeems to me that Orleans Parish is heavily represented by Democrats and blacks in the political system. It also seems to me that they are not doing anything to protect their people and to help get them out of poverty. Oh, I almost forgot, the great mayor of New Orleans is black and, you guessed it, a Democrat.
"Many black people feel that their race, their property conditions and their voting patterns have been a factor in the response ... I'm not saying that myself, but what's self-evident is that you have many poor people without a way out." -- Rev. Jesse Jackson
"In New Orleans, the disaster's impact underscores the intersection of race and class in a city where fully two-thirds of its residents are black and more than a quarter of the city lives in poverty. In the Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood, which was inundated by the floodwaters, more than 98 percent of the residents are black and more than a third live in poverty." -- David Gonzalez, NY Times
However, it's a Republican president who is to blame?
