To quote someone on an online forum I frequent:
“How long did it take for the US congress to re-convene in order to vote for Terri Schiavo?
How long did it take for them to make it back to Washington to decide how to help from a national fucking disaster? Why on Earth did we not see a Congressional aid bill passed until FUCKING THURSDAY?
I’ve been mad at our government for quite a while. I’m no fan of Iraq. I don’t particularly like our President. I don’t care for a lot of the things that our government does. But this is the last goddamned straw. My hands are quite literally shaking with rage over what a clusterfuck this situation has become. My only comfort lies in the fact that others seem to be feeling the way I do.”
Estimates of 40,000 dead, and it took five days for even basic help to arrive. And it’s still not enough.
Let’s impeach the fucking president.
