Capitalists, not Environmentalists will rebuild the cities

El it even if you loathe him:

"the people who make this country work." When you turn on your television and you look at the people rebuilding New Orleans and Gulfport and Biloxi, Mississippi, those are not going to be environmentalists. You won't see the Robert F. Kennedy, Jrs., or any of these others from these well heeled nonprofit groups rebuilding New Orleans in Gulfport and Biloxi. Do you know who it's going to be? It's going to be the military. It will be construction companies and their employees. It will be hotels and restaurants and grocery stores and the like. It will be the very capitalists that make this country work; it will be the very people that make this country work. It will not be the environmentalists who detest these people. It'll be the Wal-Marts of the world. It'll be the Anheuser-Busches. It will be the Ford Motor Company. All of these institutions the left despises, that's who you'll see rebuilding these cities. You won't see one person from the Sierra Club there. You will not see one person from the Environmental Resources Defense Fund there. You wouldn't see any environmentalist there. You'll see them on TV, whining and moaning about things and complaining like they always do.

Did you see the millions and millions of dollars corporations like Target, Wal-Mart and Ford have donated? Corporations have donated over 100 million dollars so far this week.

Last night, I was listening to a report on CNN about how the flood waters are turning toxic from the car batteries, gasoline, oil, and other chemicals that are floating around, stagnating.

They said that what will happen is the stuff will congeal as the water recedes, and end up coating *everything* from trees to cars to what's left of homes.

I think in a disaster like this there will be a place for the environmentalists - to scrape that gunk off tress - just like there is a place for the crew from home depot to help provide housing supplies to the thousands of instant homeless.
