The great thing about getting older is you tend to say what is on your mind without worrying about what others think. So, here is a little of what is on my mind, or at least what is left of it.

Prophecy

Facts

The government of the United States, for reasons that will never be brought to light, responded with abysmal slowness in helping the citizens caught in the destruction of Hurricane Katrina.

The people of the United States, and much of the world, responded immediately and with courage, generosity, and character.

Prophecy*

The Bush Administration will quickly move to place the blame elsewhere.

The Bush Administration will deny any fault on their part and will quickly take credit for the actions of the American people, which they had little or nothing to do with.

Blame will be swiftly focused on both the Governor of Louisiana. the Mayor of New Orleans, and the people of New Orleans.

Limbaugh, Coulter and other highly paid dissemblers will go into high gear shifting all responsibility away from Bush and unflinchingly placing it on the people of New Orleans, their Mayor and the Governor of their state.

The carnival barkers at Fox News will go into high gear praising the President and attacking the scapegoats.

George Bush and his administration will never face any serious inquiry because:


--Bush will select those who do the investigating.
--Bush will set the rules for the investigation, including:
----The administration may not be investigated..
----No cabinet level or higher-level administration will be questioned under oath.


Committees, propaganda, and deceit will stall any inquiry into this tragedy. Those who were truly responsible will never answer to their incompetence and dereliction of duty, and if they rigidly adhere to Rove’s talking points they will probably be rewarded.

Bush and Cheney cronies will make a lot of money off this tragedy, and the poorest of our citizens will continue to suffer.

George Bush will go back to doing the only thing he is any good at: riding his little mountain bike.

*There is nothing mystical about prophecy. We know what they have done in the past and it gives us a good idea of what they will do in the future.
