Blog-a-thon Relief Day

The radio station I listen to, KRLA 870, recommends Feed the Children. In addition, Hugh Hewitt points out:


And the Soldiers Angels fund directed specifically to the families of Gulf Coast area soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. And Coast Guard. What heroics we have seen from Coast Guard pilots and crew these past few days.

Fighting for your country abroad, then not having a home for you to return to....the last thing these servicemen need, is to worry about what's going on over here, at home.

I've heard from the Bush-blamers and political looters (yes, of course some are blaming him for the Hurricane and its aftermath), some lame-ass comments regarding the National Guard. In light of the looting and insecurity (apparently marshal law has now been declared), there are only about 7,000 National Guardsmen out there to offer assistance. The reason for this blame is because the critics don't believe in the war. Neither do they support it. Only a 3rd of the National Guard from out of Louisiana is over in Iraq. Furthermore, it is nothing unique to call up the National Guard to serve in wartime. It happened in both World Wars, of course Vietnam despite what you hear about those trying to avoid would join the National Guard; and they were also called up and deployed to Kosovo and Bosnia.

Around 75-80% of our National Guard is still here, within country.

Just a Woman links to Instapundit's list of organizations that will distribute your help to our fellow citizens. And of course Hugh Hewitt remains on top of things.

Technorati flood aid and hurricane Katrina, to round things out.

"Please dig deep and give. Then give again. Then give until you really feel it". -Hugh Hewitt


God bless America.

How sick, these spammers are using Katrina.

I too am disgusted by how the left ie reacting to this. This is a time to unite & work together, not behave like five year olds. The Soldiers Angels are doing a great job, it's one of my favorite organizations too.

Ha! First time I've ever gotten those. And yeah, that's sick that they are mentioning Katrina.

Deleted 'em all. They happened in a short space of time, too. So now, alas, I've activated the word verification feature, finally.

It is interesting to visit other blogs, and compare what the Libs are blogging about currently and what the Conservatives are.

I thought the Dems were supposed to be the compassionate party!

How terrible for spammers to use Katrina!

I suppose they figure if Robert Kennedy, Jr. can exploit the disaster, so can they.

I'm amazed that it was politicized so quickly.

The Dems just SAY they are compassionate.

Compassion is found in action, not words.
