Bush seeks to federalize emergencies - Washington Times

Oh Great. In the wake of criticism of FEMA's handling of the aftermath of Katrina, President Bush is now looking to FURTHER EXPAND the role of the Federal government into our daily lives.

Is this what all you whining liberals wanted to happen? Even more Federal control over States' Rights? You whined and cried and howled about the PATRIOT ACT, and how the Federal government is taking away our freedoms and our civil liberties, yet you yelled just a loudly when the Federal government supposedly didn't act quickly enough for you after hurricane Katrina (such an act would have required violating existing law).

So which is it?

Do you want to completely ignore the fact that there are 50 states and just become one big behemoth social state, or would you prefer to stick with the ideas the founders had that are written in the Constitution? YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.

Why can't you accept the fact that Lousiana and New Orleans have lousy leadership and simply were not up to the task? If Governor Schwarzenegger or Mayor Guliani's response had been as weak-kneed as these people there would be throngs in the streets yelling "Recall! Recall!" ("Nagin froze! People died! Blanco foundered, people drowned!")

Instead you have completely given them a pass for political reasons (or politically correct reasons. Can't pick on a black or a woman after all) and instead have focused your wrath on Bush and the Federal government.

Tinkering with the protections built into the Posse Comitatus Act will do far more to destroy our liberty than has happened from the PATRIOT ACT.

Beware what you ask for. You just might get it.
