Your President Speaks!

Today, inWashington, at the Department of Agriculture.

This Is A Stick-Up!

I just called the governors of the affected states. I wanted them to know that this government will help them; but more importantly, I wanted them to be able to tell the people in their states that the American people hold them up and — hold those who suffer up in prayer.

Prayers Will Restore Your Double-Wide

Loss of life, a lot of loss of property — prayers can help and so can the government.

What They Got

They got four children and eight grandchildren, which means he’s got valuable experience when it comes to the food supply.

It’s Critical For Have

It’s critical for farmers and consumers have a good farm bill in place, so Ed is going to work with members of both parties on a bill that spends the people’s money wisely, doesn’t raise taxes, reforms and tightens subsidy payments — a farm bill that will benefit the entire economy.

Or Not Make Needed Reforms

I’m confident we can come together to get a good farm bill — but if Congress sends me legislation that raises taxes or not make needed reforms, I’m going to veto it.

    Hold them up in prayer. Yeah, that’s about all Bush is willing to do for working people who get hurt by his economic policies. I hope his fundie followers are satisfied by this pandering to them; if I needed help, that sure wouldn’t satisfy me.

    Whilst we’re waiting for those prayers to roll in, down here in the Tornado-Stricken Mid-South, I might recommend someDIRECT HUMAN INTERACTION.

    As Scout is to NOLA, I am to the Mid-South area (I LIVE here, and was live-blogging these horrible storms all night), and have started to get the help-ball rolling down here. Some of you know where I work. I started a Food Drive there today for the Mid-South United Way Food Bank.
    As the area affected is so broad and detached, and everyone in the Country was distracted by politics last night, as yet, there is no central assistance hub set-up. So, at the link, above, you’ll find the two agencies with the broadest radius to help the arearight now. Both take DIRECT donations.
    A small-blog swarm on that post would be greatly appreciated by more people than just me. I can’t describe how wide-spread the damage is down here. It’s enormous. The Media, per usual, is only just now waking up to the situation. Like NOLA, these are REALLY poor folks down here, and have nothing, and nowhere to go.
    A short post about this here, at First Draft, linking either to my post, above, or directly to the two Orgs mentioned in the post, would sure be a big help, and would be greatly appreciated by many people who are relying on help. They are all that we have right now.
    I just donated a deer’s worth of ground venison, along with the 100 pounds of rice and quart-sized ziplock bags that they said that they needed at the United Way Mid-South Food Bank, when I phoned them this morning. Their pantry is BARE, and I’ll be loading them up with all the potatoes, rice, veggies, bags, and other staples that I can fit in my truck tomorrow.
    This is serious Red State country, and a flood of help from the DFH Left would REALLY make a big difference in a number of good ways.
    I thank you all in advance.

    Your humble peer,
