Remember all of the whining from foreign countries that we in America didn’t give enough gazillions to the victims of the Tsunami? Remember Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries chastising America for not helping the Muslim victims of the Tsunami?
Remember Brad Pitt’s hour-long “Prime Time Live” interview with Diane Sawyer, criticizing America for not giving enough to Africa? Ditto for his blue-lensed sunglasses-adorned buddy, Bono.
Now, where are all of these parties when Louisiana and Mississippi are in total disaster from Hurricane Katrina? Strangely silent. Interesting that that are no cries about Saudi Arabia (a country we saved from becoming the Kingdom of Saddam) not helping the infidel, non-Muslim (for now) America.
For them and the other members of OPEC, the power in Louisiana and Mississippi cannot be out long enough, the rigs that get oil and supply 25% of our needs cannot be idle long enough, to make them even more gazillions from the rising price of gas. Behind their palaces and in their mosques, they are laughing gleefully at this American tragedy.
Where is Brad Pitt now? Too busy taking care of Angelina Jolie’s kiddies apparently (kind of like the rest of America that is ALWAYS busy with its jobs and families, without the luxuries of movie-star salaries and accoutrements). One place where Pitt isn’t is reaching for his wallet or checkbook for those in trouble here. Ditto for his sleazebag, pro-Palestinian girlfriend.
When the rest of the world is in trouble, America must be the savior. When America is in trouble, we’re on our own.
