Iowa floods, where are the celebrities...

I saw this on Fox 4 "viewer mail" where a person asked:

Where are all the celebrities and their benefit concerts/events for the Americnas in Iowa and has Spike Lee come out and acused the government of blowing up the levees that failed there?


I love it!

One
Big
Ass
Mistake
America

If you like the IRS, DMV and the Post Office, you will love Obamacare!

“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.”
Robert A. Heinlein

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."

They can not find a way to sensationalize the situation. If New Orleans had been 90% white middle class, then there would have not been all the hype either. I stand firm that racism today is at LEAST 50% the fault of black america.

Some of my Environmental colleagues say their work up there seems easier with less than 1/2 the media, a friendlier-local atmosphere, and less celebrity attention (Sean Penn).
