Awwwww, Poor Rich People.

arena.jpg

I usually leave this news stuff to greenie, but I’m pretty pissed off this morning.

I’m going to attempt to not be Mr. Fantastic today…

I’ve been following the SoCal fire story on and off ever since it began, and I have to say the Governator & Michael Chertoff (Homeland Security Chief) have both done an excellent job in handling relief efforts for the victims of the disaster. Super. Dee. Duper.

Wait – first let me disclaim this entire post before continuing on:

I, Mr. Phuque, have nothing against anyone who has been relocated to the San Diego Arena because their homes have burned to the ground.

Aight, so…

What sickens me about the glorious amount of Trill™ (see: Pimp C) that has suddenly consumed the federal government to move so quick, fast, and in a hurry, is that two years ago, our same government wouldn’t have known relief if I pimp-slapped the FEMA starting line-up with a pack of Rolaids. Mr. Chertoff says:

“Of course, a lot of what we’ve done over the last two and a half years is build on lessons we learned from what happened in New Orleans in 2005,” he said. That was when a slow government response to Hurricane Katrina left thousands of people stranded in flooded homes and overcrowded shelters for days.

Say word?

“Slow government response” was an understatement. Of course I don’t have to tell you about the conditions Katrina victims faced in the SuperDome, because you’ve already heard and forgot about it. Now compare this to the present situation:

“Would I rather be in my home?” asked Yolanda Martinez of the evacuated community of Ramona. “Obviously. But they have done a remarkable job here.”

Remarkable job? Bands?? Clowns??? The FUCK???

A couple of years ago the inside of the SuperDome looked like a third world country, but they’re probably serving Macaframalama Lattes in San Diego.

New Orleans? No food or water. San Diego? Starbucks bunnies, clowns and afternoon picnics.

I don’t attribute this (entirely) to racism, so don’t go there. The only thing the guvment learned during Katrina is that minorities and poor people are easier to contain then they thought. Guess what? You could be a polka-dotted alien w/ orange stripes – if you’re broke (less money = less influence), or a felon (you can’t vote Republican in 2008), then the corporations that keep that scrilla in Bush’s pockets wouldn’t piss on fire to put you out (c) Mr. Mathers.

Now this is just my opinion of course – feel free to disagree (but keep it above the belt – I keeps ether by the barrel). I’m just pointing out a few inconsistencies between the way the government handled these two disasters. You can’t tell me that in two years, the government learned from how they fucked up in New Orleans, and re-created a new relief plan that included booking a damn band & shit like that. I’m sorry…

….you need more clowns.

    it goes to show you that power and wealth are synonymous in this country. the fact that wealth and white are also synonymous are just another indicator of how royally fucked up things are when you consider the majority of American claim neither.

  2. Big Homie Says:

    Somebody mention the same thing in a comment in my Pac post. Im glad that they doing whatever they can in Cali and fast at that, but what happen during Katrina and why didnt they get the same treatment and at a slow pace at that? Reading the treatment they got compared to Katrina discusts me. I was down in N.O. not too long ago for business and they are still recovering and I will not be surprised if soutern Cali recovers before N.O.

    Expect it.

  4. G7 Says:

    this is great shit Phuque(no sitting in the stall with the morning paper). The comparisons between this situation and Katrina didn’t even cross my mind. Some major celebrity or something needs to bring this issue to light.

  5. Phuque Says:

    @ G7 – thank you sir. As far as celebritries bringing this thing to light, I’ve only got Too Short’s number (nh), so…

  6. Babydoll Says:

    Wow, I heard some of this on the radio this morning and all I kept thinking about was Katrina…as the world turns. SMH

    This sums up the entire situation:

    It ain’t where ya from- It’s where ya at……

    Enviroment determines your lot in today’s society and how you rank in levels of importance…..

  9. reythehussein Says:

    My baby brother is out there. I’m glad he’s okay.

    I’m not happy that N.O. is fucked up.

    Also? Phuque’s mom once held down a job as Chewbacca’s Stunt Double. She didn’t need the costume.

  10. Phuque Says:

    LMAO @ Rey…

    Speaking of fam in San Diego….Willy Swagger, my NR brotha from anotha motha, are you ok? (c) Smooth Criminal

  11. Jamz + Says:

    Cali is a rich state with a lot of wealthy people living there, so you can believe things will be back to normal lickity-split out there sooner than later.

  12. angrygirl Says:

    I am so angry that everyone trys to say oh look how fast they respond the the fires in california, why didnt they respond the same to katrina. Well #1 it was a completly different sitution like a flood, you cant get into help because its a FLOOD, this is a fire where you can get to. Sooo stop trying to confuse the two they are completly different disasters. We also may have learned a thing or two from what happened or didnt happen with katrina!

  13. Phuque Says:

    @ angrygirl – Your argument is baseless…officials have been saying that these fires have been worse than Katrina in some instances. People can’t even go outside because the air is so thick. Do some research before telling us how “angry” you are. These situations are more similar than you think.

    ^^^cosiggy!….great post phuque!

  16. brilliance Says:

    This is more evidence that George Bush wants to flood minority homes. Or burn them. Did you know that Randi Rhodes reports that San Diego recently antagonized Blackwater, a racistly named portion of Bush’s gestappo and that this fire is closely related to that. I cannot wait until Hillary is president so these fires will stop consuming us.

    Did you also know that they are purposely directing the fires towards mexico out of racism?

  17. The XFacta Says:

    Yo Phuque, I know that we’ve had our differences before but you’re right on point with this one. Nothing pisses me off more then rich people bitching about having to spend money or complaining about taking addtl steps they don’t have to take

  18. Mr. Roach Says:

    This is a stupid post. New Orlenas problems were a consequence of its corrupt, lazy, criminal people (8X national murder rate 12 X violent crime rate). No government can easily govern such trash.
