“Storms Over Texas.”
Hurricane Harvey has struck the Gulf region of Texas, and it has hit with an awe and power that can scarcely be believed. Houston, which took the title to the fourth largest city in America from Philadelphia years ago, now has a new title: most flooded us city in U.S. history. Harvey came, became a tropical storm, spun back into the goal and returned with a vengeance, spilling over 50 inches of rain in hours, sending most of the city into floods that Americans haven’t seen since Katrina in New Orleans.
It arrives just in time to remind people what global warming means even as its idiotic misleader claims climate change is a hoax. President Trump, called by some insane, clown, president, once called climate change just that as he arrives for a photo up. Is it a hoax now?
Thousands of people are watching their lives wash away with higher and higher floodwaters. Politicians, whores of their corporate funders, are smiling as they bank their donations, while mothers and grandmothers and children drown in their attics and in flood swollen streets in America’s fourth largest city.
From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
