The Real America

Simply said, we live in the greatest country on God's green planet. Despite anything the left might have to say, witnessing the outpouring of generosity and assistance provided to the victims of Hurricane Katrina has been overwhelming. The funds that have been raised, the donated items, the offers of physical assistance to aid in the efforts; all done out of love and concern for our fellow man. Let's visit a few heroes.

Jane at Armies of Liberation continually informs the populace of the difficulties in Yemen and fights some political battles as well. I am always amazed by her courage.

Janette from Common Sense Runs Wild supplies us with links to sites assisting victims and their extended families. She has a great round-up to ease your web surfing.

Oddybobo, like most Americans, has had it with Cindy Sheehan and asks herself, and all of us as well "Does Cindy really speak for her son Casey?" Was he a hero? Make sure you read the comments, you'll find an interesting one in there.

Pamela lets us really know how she feels about the United Nations praising Ariel Sharon. The dishonest and corrupt actions of the UN are a slap in the face to Israel and Sharon. Thanks for always keeping us up to date on Israel Pam.

Ith from Absinthe & Cookies (who wasn't going to participate but I snagged something from her anyway) vents about Anne Rice and her comments regarding the "lack" of assistance in New Orleans. Pointing out the idiocy of the left with regards to Hurricane Katrina must be done. The lies need to end and it takes much tenacity to do it.

Raven has the intestinal fortitude to read what the foreign press has to say about America and Hurricane Katrina. CAUTION: It will make your blood boil. Here's a sample:

At the end of an unforgettable week, one broadcaster on Friday bitterly encapsulated the sense of burning shame and anger that many American citizens are feeling.

The only difference between the chaos of New Orleans and a Third World disaster operation, he said, was that a foreign dictator would have responded better.

It has been a profoundly shocking experience for many across this vast country who, for the large part, believe the home-spun myth about the invulnerability of the American Dream.

Tammy at A Mom And Her Blog has had to take a step back from the 24/7 reporting of Hurricane Katrina. One evening her daughter was overcome with emotion watching all of the reports. It's good to let our children see the world as it is, but sometimes we must draw them under our wing to protect them from that same world.

Are You Conservative does an entertaining, hypothetical senate hearing with ABC News President, David Westin, on the stand. I needed a good laugh after this week and it was provided here.

Annika is disappointed with the president; yes conservative Republicans can be upset with their chosen President. Here she analyzes his shortcomings addressing the nation with regards to Hurricane Katrina and what she thinks he should have said. Would you like a sample?

Bush's tone needed to recognize the reality of the situation on the ground now. The folks in the hell that was once New Orleans don't really give a flying fuck about Trent Lott's porch. They're not thinking about the rebuilding effort or whether the city will ever "be great again." They're worried about water, food, and whether they're going to get raped or killed when the sun goes down tonight.

In short, they're worried about survival, and they're understandably pissed at the government. Instead of recognizing that, the president tried to blow smoke up their collective asses. He should have let them know he was as impatient for results as they are.

Aaahhh, she does have a way with words, no?

Who else is a hero? Young Jabbar Gibson; this teenage boy used his common sense and took his friends and neighbors to safety. Well done, Jabbar, well done.

Make sure you go and visit the other fine hostesses today. The lovely Annika, the fabulous Right Girl and the stunning Merri. Please stop by their places and let them know that you appreciate their efforts.

Take care.

Heh, well, I hadn't written the post when I decided I hadn't posted anything worth contributing :)

Stacy, did you really post this on Sunday? I could've sworn I came by here a few times Monday, and the last post was "Please Remember". Perhaps you mislabeled this, date-wise?

Thanks Jeff, I fixed it.

I think it is so important to tell the stories of how people are being helped - not only by the rescue workers, but by the federal government, and by private citizens. The American Spirit is alive and well - contrary to the MSM's desire and intent to have us believe otherwise. Thanks for a great Cotillion round-up, Stacy.

Awesome roundup. I think that kid who stole the bus is a hero. Really cool.
