The Bush Legacy: More Poverty, Less Insured

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on August 29th, 2006 11:45 am by HL

Saw this on Think Progress.
There is some new census data out that shows how the poverty level has risen, and the uninusred rate has gone down every year since 2000, Bush took over in January 2001, and things have been going into the tank ever since.

H.L.s Take:
The numbers speak for themselves. The reverse Midas touch in full effect. Everything he touches turns to S**t.


H.L. Flashback: Hurricane Katrina

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts) on August 29th, 2006 10:22 am by HL

I was sitting here at my desk on August 28 2005, at 3:45 PM Pacific when I saw the weather chart, and realized this wasn’t going to be a regular type Hurricane. I posted a warning to any H.L.ers in New Orleans that may not have known.

RUN!

Hurricane Katrina bears down on New Orleans, it could possibly flood the entire below sea level city.

Get The F**k Out Of There

President Bush and his trusted advisor closely monitored the situation (so he knew how bad it was) At a crucial juncture when Bush’s point man began to realize that Bush had no desire to do anything at all, Bush had this to say to the frustrated and confused assistant.

Meanwhile Bush decided to pull a Nero, and pulled out his gee-tar

On August 31, Bush decided that maybe it was time to end his vacation a couple of days early and like maybe try to like do something, or something.

Then finally, 5 days after the strom hit. When Bush had let thousands of people die, it was time for something to be done. He got his daddy, and Bill Clinton to bail him out.
