Original Starting post for this thread:
"WASHINGTON -- Justice Department officials over the last six years illegally used “political or ideological” factors to hire new lawyers into an elite recruitment program, tapping law school graduates with conservative credentials over those with liberal-sounding resumes, a new report found Tuesday.

“Many qualified candidates” were rejected for the department’s honors program because of what was perceived as a liberal bias, the report found. Those practices, the report concluded, “constituted misconduct and also violated the department’s policies and civil service law that prohibit discrimination in hiring based on political or ideological affiliations.”

The shift appeared to accelerate in 2006, under then-Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, with two aides on the screening committee — Michael Elston and Esther Slater McDonald — singled out for particular criticism. The blocking of applicants with liberal credentials appeared to be a particular problem in the Justice Department’s civil rights division, which has seen an exodus of career employees in recent years as the department has pursued a more conservative agenda in deciding what types of cases to bring."

Now your comparing a natural disaster in New Orleans with the Wacko's at Waco. Are you off your meds again. That is bizarre even for you.

Bottom line your beloved hero W let 1200 Americans die on American soil without lifting a finger.

Billy Boy murdered 75 american souls on his orders in Waco. No natural disaster here, just a Hitler like President who thought nothing of his subjects but playthings.

I just love this. "Destin is right about Louisana!!" The #2 lemming right in step backing up the #1 lemming. Even though both of them are absolutely incorrect -- or in denial.

Their beloved hero W let 1200 Americans die on American soil without lifting a finger. His legacy will include the debacle in New Orleans. I don't think they'll be naming a lot of streets after W. Maybe Fuckup Street, Dingleberry Avenue, GWB Conservative Land Fill, Incompetence Lane... etc. etc.

Destin sez: "Tell the Gov and mayor who kept the feds out they are responsible for murder...Bush asked her to let FEMA in she refused fed help...the fed has to be allowed in to any state, check the law...damn fools who lie and think they know everything... "
