Homeland Security Chief Chokes
I have not written much lately because, for the most part, it has all been the same hate-filled empty rhetoric from the left and no one from the right has been indicted for taking bribes or exposing a desk-jockey at the CIA as an undercover agent.
Yesterday, however, in a news conference, President Bush announced that he had asked Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff why all those trailers (10,700 more or less) were still sitting unused in Hope, Arkansas. Finally, I thought, something might get done.
Well, silly me. Apparently this brilliant man, Secretary Chertoff, has decided to move 5000 trailers down to the hurricane ravaged areas where ten's of thousands of people need housing, but will leave about 5,000 in reserve for the next potential disaster.
Notice to Secretary Chertoff: For months now the federal government has been paying for displaced families to live in hotels, ships, and other temporary housing. Move every one of those trailers where they are needed. Don't wait another day. Use everything that you have at your disposal NOW. If you want more trailers for the next disaster, put in an order more trailers. There are companies that will be more than happy to build them.
Where did President Bush find this guy anyway?
