    Denver Post:

    This text is from a county emergency manager out in the central part of Colorado after todays snowstorm.


    Up here, in the Northern Plains, we just recovered from a Historic event--- may I even say a "Weather Event" of "Biblical Proportions" --- with a historic blizzard of up to 44" inches of snow and winds to 90 MPH that broke trees in half, knocked down utility poles, stranded hundreds of motorists in lethal snow banks, closed ALL roads, isolated scores of communities and cut power to 10's of thousands.


    George Bush did not come.

    FEMA did nothing.

    No one howled for the government.

    No one blamed the government.

    No one even uttered an expletive on TV .

    Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton did not visit.

    Our Mayor did not blame Bush or anyone else.

    Our Governor did not blame Bush or anyone else, either.

    CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX or NBC did not visit - or report on this category 5 snowstorm. Nobody demanded $2,000 debit cards.

    No one asked for a FEMA Trailer House.

    No one looted.

    Nobody - I mean Nobody demanded the government do something.

    Nobody expected the government to do anything, either.

    No Larry King, No Bill O'Rielly, No Oprah, No Chris Mathews and No Geraldo Rivera.

    No Shaun Penn, No Barbara Striesand, No Hollywood types to be found.

    Nope, we just melted the snow for water.

    Sent out caravans

    of SUV's to pluck people out of snow engulfed cars.

    The truck drivers pulled people out of snow banks and didn't ask for a penny.

    Local restaurants made food and the police and fire departments delivered it to the snowbound families.

    Families took in the stranded people - total strangers.

    We fired up

    wood stoves, broke out coal oil lanterns or Coleman lanterns.

    We put on extra layers of clothes because up here it is "Work or Die".

    We did not wait for some affirmative action government to get us out of a mess created by being immobilized by a welfare program that trades votes for 'sittin at home' checks.

    Even though a Category "5" blizzard of this scale has never fallen this early, we know it can happen and how to deal with it ourselves.

    "In my many travels, I have noticed that once one gets north of about 48 degrees North Latitude, 90% of the world's social problems evaporate."


  2. Right On! Funny how that works.......... I think a lot of people need to read this!
  3. This is absolutely awesome!!! That may be the first thing I have ever read that I agree with 100%!!! Do I have permission to post and email this on every single internet avenue i have available to me???

    could not agree more...
  4. LOL........ Thats great! I love the way people blame the government on nature! Way to Go Denver!!!!!
  5. No Kanye West saying "George Bush doesn't care about mountain people"? Guess the RV market won't boom there (fema trailers).
  6. i cant agree with this guy more. I wish everyone of the said NAACP reps and the mayor or New Orleans could get a good solid look at this.
  7. I received this a few days ago in an email. All I have to say is AMEN!:coolgleam
  8. good thread, I have a small business where I sell minerals and vitamins for livestock and one of my customer call and said that he had to paid $300 a hour for a helicopter to drop hay to his goats, horses and cattle. So I guess having mud and rain is not that bad if you think about it.
  9. They must have gotten a small break from El Nino up there, huh??
