Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Barack Obama

He sent me an e-mail asking me to help the first responders in New Orleans. He used his political mas mailing system to ask me to help the first responders, thereby reminding me that he is on top of natural disasters. It was kind of a prick move, man.

So, it's Labor Day, and most folks will be better off than they were after Katrina when they return to their homes after Gustav is gone.

I still say living in a bowl below sea level that relies on constant pumping to not fill up is insane.

well, considering these are the only two hurricanes to hit since the 20's... they've been doing pretty good.
