Radio Daze

Tape playing Backwards from

President's Radio Address

September 24, 2005

END [We fear this lunacy of yours will never end]

{Begin Paragraph = Last }

"The past three weeks have tested our nation and revealed the strength and resilience of our people. "

[We Lemmings see that you "American" humans have failed your test.]

"Americans have the determination and the will to overcome any challenge from man or nature."

["Any" challenge from Nature? What are you insane? We Lemmings know that Mother Nature always wins. You play by her rules or you don't play at all. This confirms our suspicions that you humans are mad.]

" The courageous spirit of America will carry us through any storm, and the compassionate soul of our nation will help us rebuild. Thank you for listening."

[Does not your Adam Smith religion demand more than courage and soul to "rebuild"? Does it not demand "capital" which is why it is called "capitalism"? Where is the brave talk of your Fearless Leader about reaching into his own pocket and providing the capital instead of the hollow compassion?]

{Begin Paragraph = Last‑1 }

"In the recovery effort, the American people will play a vital role."

[Where is your "Government"? You know, the people who took all the tax money in this time of need? Why are THEY not playing the vital role? ]

"This week, Laura visited Texas to thank leaders of faith-based groups who've rallied to help their Louisiana neighbors in desperate need. "

[Wouldn't your "faith-based" fanatics believe this is a sign form your Deity to stop your evil, gas-guzzling, planet-polluting ways? ]

"Charities and houses of worship and idealistic men and women across America have opened up their homes, their wallets and their hearts to the victims of Katrina."

[To "open" is a noble thought. Now let go and hand it over you anal retentive! ]

"And with the arrival of another violent storm, our neighbors in the Gulf Coast will need continued help. Our fellow citizens in the affected areas can know they can count on the good hearts of the American people."

[Yeh, forget about "We're from the money-grabbing Government and we are here to help you". The Government has no heart. You better look to the "people" for your only source of relief. ]

{Begin Paragraph = Last‑2 }

"In the recovery effort, the private sector will play a vital role."

[You're on your own suckers. ]

"To rebuild lives and communities, we need to encourage small business growth in that region, with immediate tax relief and other incentives for job-creating investment."

[Oh yeh. "RELIEF" for those with too much money, that is the first order of business. ]

"Private enterprise is the engine for creating new jobs in America and it will be the engine that drives the recovery of the Gulf Coast."

[Don't you need OIL to drive your engines? Show me the OIL. ]

{Begin Paragraph = Last‑3 }

"In the recovery effort, state and local leaders will play a vital role in laying out their plans and vision for the future of their communities. Earlier this week, I met with community leaders and local officials in the region to hear their ideas on rebuilding and recovery. I told them that the vision of a revitalized New Orleans should come from the people of New Orleans, and the vision of a new Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama should come from the people of those states. We will do everything we can to guide the recovery effort, and help them realize their vision so that communities along the Gulf Coast are better and stronger than before the storm."

[Hey, wasn't that there Higher Father talking to you? Where is YOUR great vision oh great leadership dude? What the hell are your right wing think tanks doing with the money if not developing "visions"? Now you come hat in hand to the destroyed people of the Gulf? Shouldn't it be the other way around? What is this, PREMEPTIVE VISION VACUUM ? ]

{Begin Paragraph = Last‑4 }

"As we respond to Hurricane Rita, we're continuing our efforts to help the citizens of the Gulf Coast recover from Hurricane Katrina, a storm that has caused unprecedented destruction across an entire region. The recovery of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi is a commitment of the American people, and in this effort, all Americans have a role to play. In the recovery effort, the federal government has a vital role, and we'll do our duty. We'll help rebuild roads, bridges, schools, water systems and other infrastructure in the disaster zone. We will cut through red tape in Washington so we can speed the work of rebuilding and get the Gulf Coast region back on its feet."

[Let us recommend this not well known HALLIBURTON company for receiving all the money for the noble "rebuild". ]

{Begin Paragraph = Last‑5 }

"We've also organized and identified civilian volunteers, including more than 200 doctors and more than 400 registered nurses. The American Red Cross is prepared to deliver hundreds of thousands of meals a day. Our government is taking every step possible to protect life and bring comfort to those affected."

[Those are back peddling steps. ]

{Begin Paragraph = Last‑6 }

"At this moment, the following Navy ships are in the region: the Iwo Jima, the Shreveport, the Tortuga, the Grapple, the Patuxent, and the Comfort. The Texas National Guard has activated its Guardsmen, nearly 3,500 so far, with more on call if they are needed. Coast Guard cutters, aircraft and helicopters are in place, ready to rescue, evacuate, and relocate civilians trapped by the storm. And additional Coast Guard air crews and aircraft are now arriving from around the country."

[Oh yeh. Bring on that "Comfort" noise. That'll scare Mother Nature. ]

{Begin Paragraph = Last‑7 }

"Over the past week, federal, state and local governments have been closely coordinating their efforts for Hurricane Rita. The Department of Homeland Security and FEMA prepositioned food, water, ice, and emergency response teams, and helped with the evacuations in Texas and Louisiana. Military assets were also prepositioned so they could be deployed immediately after the storm passes."

{Begin Paragraph = Last‑8 }

"THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. This weekend I will visit U.S. Northern Command in Colorado where we're monitoring Hurricane Rita. As the hurricane continues along its destructive path, the American people can know courageous and dedicated men and women are responding to our citizens in need. We are marshaling resources of the federal government to save lives and property, and bring comfort to those who have evacuated because of this storm."

[Oh yeh. Keep that "Comfort" noise a coming. Those who are in power are hunkering in a spider hole somewhere deep in a mountain in Colorado. What bravery. Why this is even more compassion than that compassionate hand wave from 3,000 feet. ]

War on Nature Declared by Bring'em On Leader

Having been surprised by terrorizing attacks on multiple fronts, the fearless Leader of the NorthWestern Human Burrows declared War on Mother Nature (and also a war on pornography at the same time).

"You know, we'll put together a force structure that meets the threats," said the Great Chief Sitting Bush after his positions were attacked.

"And we got a lot of forces ... ourselves," he retorted after having been warned about the forces of nature. "And as I said yesterday, anybody who wants to harm America ... will be found and brought to justice. There are some who feel like that if they attack us that we may decide to leave prematurely. They don't understand what they're talking about, if that's the case. Let me finish. There are some who feel like that, you know, the conditions are such that they can attack us there and here. My answer is bring them on. We got the force necessary to deal."

The surprise attacks in New Orleans and Galveston did not phase the Fearless Leader of the Humans. "After September 11, the doctrine of containment just doesn't hold any water, as far as I'm concerned," he said. "We must deal with threats before they hurt the American people again."

"Had we joined the Kyoto treaty, ... it would have cost America a lot of jobs. It's one of these deals where, in order to be popular ... you sign a treaty. But I thought it would cost a lot -- I think there's a better way to do it. I just told you the facts, sir. The quality of the air is cleaner since I've been the president of the United States. And we'll continue to spend money on research and development, because I truly believe that's the way to get from how we live today to being able to live a standard of living that we're accustomed to and being able to protect our environment better, the use of technologies. ... I think we've got to be very careful in balancing the ethics and the science. ... Science is important, but so is ethics, so is balancing life. To destroy life to save life is -- it's one of the real ethical dilemmas that we face. ... The approach I took is one that I think is a balanced and necessary approach, to balance science and the concerns for life."

Tales from the Right Grin

Sometimes the rains come early to the burrow-hood. Our Labyrinth of Prosperity gets flooded. Those who are agents of their own destiny flee the flood in time. Alas, some who can barely do very well for themselves lag and succumb.

Hey, but that is the will of the Compassionate Invisible Hand. As it is said by our Right Grin Economists: "A rising tide floats all bloats."

Brain Basics 101

    Brain Basics 101

The Triune Human Brain appears to closely follow our Lemming Logic Layers, except, as you all know, the Humans are not Limbic Leaning in the fashion of our EleaNoR Roost Ov-Lemm ancestors.

The Humans are Reptile-Rooted like RoNaLd Right Grin, their patriarch. Reptilian "Me-He" thinking dominates in their cultures. We Lemmings are more We-Tribe oriented, which is why we follow the crowd to whatever edge of the ledge our instincts take us.

Yes, the Humans do have a small amount of Neo-cortical rational thought, but it is mostly directed to denial (nah nah) of the ledge. They, more so than we, believe their lives will go on after the ledge, in the "after life".

Their Christians sense the LNR trinity in their three part God-Head. Their Muslims obsess over the keeping of the One and its continuance. Both deny that She-ness of the Limbic Roost-Ov Lemm Stem. Their Hindus accept the possibility, but in a diffuse, splintered way.

How do we activate their dorminant Neo layer? That is the problem.

Stampede of the Lemm-like Humans

It's tragic what happened to some of your fellow humans in Iraq with that bridge stampede. We lemmings understand and are sympathetic. When fear of imminent death spikes through the herd, emotions flare and the feet take over for the brain. We understand.

However, when there are years of warning by scientists and hardly any human pays heed, and you destroy our shared planet, that we do not understand. When you continue to drive your SUV's and drive the atmosphere into respiratory distress, that we do not understand. Have you no brains? Can you not devise a system of governance that addresses problems bigger than whether abortion is right or wrong at 3 months, or whether free markets rule the roost? What kind of hypocritical world do you bring your fetuses into anyway? One that is polluted, bellegirant, and depleting all vital resources. It makes no sense.
