Where Are Celebs’, Foreign Countries’ $s for Katrina Damage?

By Debbie Schlussel
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 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 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.

THANK YOU DEBBIE! I have been saying the same thing to my friends and family members! Where is Julia? Madonna? The very people who despise the country that made them millionaires are more willing to help “radicals” than their fellow countrymen.

Forget about Brad Pitt and his brother Stu, where the F are the world leaders? Maybe England may care but that’s it. But beyond that, no one gives a damn. It’s funny how all of Europe bitches and complain how we had to give to the tsunami victims but no one is stepping up and offering help.
Lets take back our country, our parks and F the rest. iF Bush or kerry or any leaders complain, this is America. This land does not belong to the sissies or faggots of other nations, the assholes in the U.N. but us!!
I am so frigging pissed but Debbie my Darling, my sweet Jewish angel, though you may be white and me a Jap(anese) American, we need to stand up to the dirtbags of the world and the the dirtbags in America. My sweet Jewish angel, you will need to stand up to even the Bush family, when you realize that the Neo-Cons and Neo-Libs with their Christian right don’t give a damn about Israel but would rather see Israel attacked so that the Rapture will arrive.
I don’t mean the goofballs from the Howard Stern Show, like Hook-nosed Mike or the like, I mean the hard-core, fundamentalist Christians who ae probably aligned with Ariel Sharon who forcibally took the settlers out of the Gaza Strip and West Bank. If war breaks out, God no Jesus Christ is coming to take His people.
So Debbie my darling, my sweet lovng angel, from the loins of heaven, it’s time we stand up and fight the good fight.

What’s even more SHOCKING, is that the vast majority of the hurricane victims in New Orleans are black. Every day, for decades, we hear the elitist, ivory tower types in Hollywood lecture us about blacks and other minorities, and how they’ve been repressed since Christopher Columbus sailed the Atlantic in 1492. Now, when George Looney, Bumo, and Brad Armpitt have the opportunity to lead by example and enlighten us (those whom they consider the “great unwashed”) where are they? Oh, I forgot, they’re safely ensconced in their ivory towers.
BTW, Debbie, gurd those loins.

I still haven’t heard nor seen any ads for a telethon for the Hurricane and flood victims in New Orlenas, Gulfport, or Biloxi. Hey, half-wit (George Clooney)! Take your face out of Cindy Sheehan’s rear end and focus on a real event that is affecting this country right now!!

Deb, one coutry has offered support.
Venezuala/Chavez through Citgo oil has pledged to offer greatly discounted oil to disaster centers in the the Gulf, hospitals, community centers, etc. How this will be accomplished is yet to be determined.
I think it is very noble of them, even after one of our “religious” leaders called for his assassination.

Sorry, “hunkpapa,” but I will have to respectfully agree to disagree with you (and the mass conventional wisdom) on this one. Pat Robertson not only had the right idea about Chavez, but we (the U.S. and, it is believed, NATO) had plans to assassinate Chavez, which were scuttled when leaked earlier this year. He is a menace and an enemy in our hemisphere who has given aid and refuge to our other enemies, Islamic terrorist groups like Hezbollah and communists like Castro. The fact that he controls so much oil is frightening. His invalid election, rife with fraud, was certified by that jerky peanut farmer, Jimmy Carter.
As for Chavez’s gratuitous “offer” of fuel to lower income people in the U.S. and in the Bayou area, it is akin to the gratuitous offer of $10 million proffered by Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal to NYC then-Mayor Giuliani for 9/11 victims in exchange for “changing” U.S. policy on Islamic terrorists and the Palestinian terrorists who are part and parcel of their ilk. I expect that President Bush will give the same answer that the great Mayor Giuliani gave: Thanks, but no thanks.

Israel sends condolences to US
Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom sent US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a letter offering assistance and expressing sympathy for the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina a day after a State Department spokesman said that Rice had not received any calls from her colleagues abroad.
“Please allow me to express my condolences to you and to the people of the United States of America on the loss of life and the terrible pain and destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina,” Shalom wrote.
“As we all stand in awe at the great force of nature unleashed on the shores of the United States, please be rest assured that the people of Israel share your sorrow and extend our hand in comfort and friendship,” he wrote. “We also stand ready to assist in any way possible.”
One official said that Israel’s offer of assistance was of a general nature, and that the Americans have not asked for any help. The official said that although Israel does not have any particular expertise in battling floods, it does have a great deal of expertise dealing with collapsed buildings.

Russia Ready to Send Rescuers to Katrina Disaster Area
31.08.2005 17:37 MSK (GMT +3)
The Russian Emergencies Ministry has offered the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency help in conducting search-and-rescue operations after Hurricane Katrina hit the American Gulf Coast and surged northward, RIA Novosti reports.
Two Russian Ilyshin cargo planes with rescue workers, search helicopters and special equipment for off-line operations in disaster areas are on standby at the Ramenskoe aerodrome outside Moscow ready to leave for the United States.
Ministry employees are also ready to participate in the search for and rescue of hurricane victims, including any Russian citizens that may be in the Gulf region.
The Ministry has also offered to send a Russian expert to the rescue headquarters near New Orleans.
Hurricane Katrina that hit the U.S. Monday has left most of New Orleans flooded. In some of the city districts the level of water has risen more than six meters above the ground. Several thousand people remained in the city despite calls for it to be evacuated. Many of them are on rooftops waiting for rescue teams.
Hundreds of people are feared dead in Mississippi and Louisiana following what was described as the most destructive storm to hit the United States in decades.

Just heard this on the news today.
Shaq has gone to Baton Ruge (spelling?) to help with disaster relief. No big hoopla with this, but isn’t that how it really should be?

Some are actually donating their own money instead of asking the average Joe to give more.

hunkpapa on September 1, 2005 at 10:51 am

Debbie my love, if George W. Bush wasn’t such a [censored by Debbie for language reasons] (I betcha Homoland Security will start looking at me now) we should have MOAB all the Middle East save Israel, destroy them and take the oil. I would have. Who would stop us, the U.N.? Russia? China??? No way. We’re giving more money to rag-headed terrorists and their demon-seeds that in the south, we are suffering. Your thoughts Deb? Heck, even Howard thinks the same!

KOAJaps on September 2, 2005 at 1:31 am

KOA, get real.
China would sure as hell would step in, unless we made some deal to split it with them. They are a growing industrial nation, and need oil just as badly as us, as well as the rest of SE Asia.
We aren’t the only big kids on the block.
I agree that the UN is a joke, but last I checked Russia still had nukes also.

U.S. to Accept Russian Aid for Katrina Aftermath รณ Source
The U.S. administration has agreed to accept Russia’s proposal to help the struggling state of Louisiana tackle the disastrous consequences of Hurricane Katrina, the Gazeta.Ru website reported Friday.
The United States earlier turned down Russia’s offer of help, saying it was thankful to Moscow for its readiness to provide assistance but that it could handle the crisis on its own.

Hey Hunka, the Republican party and the Democrat party are corrupt. It’s a sad day when you have a pro-life former Republican criticizing his own party. So that has got to mean that both parties are taken over by a small minoirity of elitists whose only goal is to take over the United States (in our territory.) It’s an even sadder and scarier day when conservative/independent/nationalist talkshow host Michael Savage criticize Bush after reading the CAFTA report. America is nbeing sold and said, “the show that talks about ghosts and UFOs? They were right! There is an illuminati and Bush has sold out America.” We, as citizens will need to stand up and fight for what’s right, for what’s ours.
I guess pissed that Ann Coulter, that loud-mouthed whore says that the only people we have to worry about are the Middle easterners. He old bag! Remember the terrorist organization Abu Sayef in the Philippines; Chechen Rebels (blond hair blue eyes), Aum Shinrikyo (Japanese) and others? The KKK, the American Nazi party? Need I say more? With our troops in IRaq and Afghanistan, who will protect us, the U.N.? I hope to God not so!!

KOAJaps on September 2, 2005 at 12:18 pm

KOA I am in agreement with you that both parties are corrupt, if Kerry and GWB were the best candidates that is pretty sad. Reps used to be conservative, but all we have gotten is more government.
Time to start supporting the LP, with enough disinfranchised Reps and Dems this party can make the next step.
