This, together with the story about the VFP buying video equipment with Katrina donations, is exactly what we said would happen all along.

Sorry about that, it worked in preview. Here is the last part of the emails again:


I have lost contact with Jim and the bus. I'm not sure what he is doing 
now that the rally is over. Perhaps Beatriz Saldivar or Bill Mitchell 
know Jim's plans for the bus. DUnderhill 512-799-9379

"We need the bus to stop this war"

Do they know how absolutely silly that sounds?

Ok... I read the whole chain, but I don't see any mention of using Katrina contributions for the bus.

We are looking at a short bus with wheel chair ramp $5,000 great shape VFP Katrina Fundhas approved paying for it.

Could this be it?

Dumb question (or at least, ignorant):

What Katrina donations? Were there donations TO VFP allegedly FOR Katrina stuff, or were they somehow skimmed off some other donation program that doesn't claim to be about "peace" or "impeachment" (e.g., Salvation Army)? Was there some official org set up by VFP to (allegedly) funnel funds for Katrina relief?

In short, is this Katrina relief officially totally separate from VFP or is it 1 of their "functions"?

I don't know the details, for sure, but it's a small group of activists who have been raising money under the guise of "Katrina relief" and using their equipment/buses alternately for their anti-war activism and for their radical organizing in LA. I strongly doubt that they have the slightest separation of "Katrina funds" from everything else that they are doing which has nothing to do with hurricane relief. They need to be thoroughly investigated by the FBI and prosecuted for fraud if this is what it surely appears to be....

"Email me if you are as thrilled about this idea as I am. I am actually for once regretting not having a driver's license!"

They write like they act - As a bunch of pre-adolescent crybabies whose omly reaction to anything is to wail and call names. What a joke!

See this in the original posting. The underlining was mine.

Probably not. They have left sanity and rational thought so far behind that they actually believe that Bush himself blew up the levies in NO because he hates black people.
