Where's all the Hype?

I received this in my email today, and thought it was worth passing on. The person who sent
it to me was not the original writer but just forwarding it. Whoever the original author
is, my hat is off to you!

... As you watch the flooding in the Midwest? Have you noticed that there
are no farmers running around with stolen plasma TVs or holding stolen
liquor over their heads.
There's no looting or yelling
"Where's Bush?",
"Where's FEMA?,
Where's my check?", or
"Why isn't the Gov't out here saving me and my farm?"

Likewise, I've also noticed there are no reports of any other country
coming to help or sending aid.

And this one---

Where are all of the Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in restoring Iowa and helping the folks affected by the floods?

Where is all the media asking the tough questions about why the federal government hasn't solved the problem? Asking where the FEMA trucks (and trailers) are?

Why isn't the Federal Government relocating Iowa people to free hotels in Chicago?

When will Spike Lee say that the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines?

Where are Sean Penn and the Dixie Chicks?

Where are all the looters stealing high-end tennis shoes and big screen television sets?

When will we hear Governor Chet Culver say that he wants to rebuild a "vanilla" Iowa, because that's the way God wants it?

Where are all of the gangs taking law into their own hands?

Where is the hysterical 24/7 media coverage complete with reports of cannibalism?

Where are the people (read liberals, progressives and other way out left wingers) declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people?

Where are the debit cards for Iowans?

How come in 2 weeks, you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?

Because these people are responsible and will take care of themselves . . . like the others need to learn to do. These are the Americans who understand that help begins at home. God bless them and let’s help them. They are true Americans!

Shocking contrast, isn't it?!?!?!
Tell it like it is, pass this on!
