THE CITY IS WORTH
REBUILDING!!! There is no place like it on earth. The
intelligence is there to prevent flooding again, we just
need the money. With help from other countries, and
americans pouring their hearts and pocket books out to us
the city will be thriving again better than it ever was.
Maybe we should think of this as somewhat of a blessing to
clean up the trash that the city has started to become. I
will be back in New Orleans. I will die in New Orleans.
1.) At least in the minimal sense, a lot
of the damage that happened was due to not having flood gates
at the end of the 17th st canal, or the london for that matter
at the lake.
2.) Then it was b/c Dubya and his ravenous
hordes of neo-con-artist budget busters had pork gobbled money
on bullshit across the USA, but couldn't cough up the regular
maintenance dollars for the levee network, and as such with
only 5.7 mils appropriated this year, down 90% from five years
ago, the Corps had stopped doing regular maintenance since
Summer 2K4....plus, the Corps I would be led to understand,
couldn't finish the bridge on R.E. LEE after two years, and
perhaps they, or the levee board had left a "barge" of some
sort tethered, parked to, or drifting in the canal which
slammed the concrete wall, and all which nonetheless, the
corps inability to do maintenance work meant that section on
17th had subsided and was 4 feet lower in some areas than the
otherwise uniform height.
3.) This entire calamity was
precipitated by negligence.
4.) When Dubya says it's a
time to come together to pick up the pieces and figure out the
why later,....well normally, a person would say yes and be
forgiving,...but that crakwhore doesn't deserve and should not
be allowed to get away with any pass whatsover,....Not after
9/11. He's already proven that he is failure. He was presented
with information and warnings, his people, almost all of them
in his team, starting with him, dick, or karl did not act with
Presented this time with info, long in
advance, they failed to act in a "preemptive" manner.
5.) when Haley (I'm a reformed oil lobbyist and party
hack, who used Karl Rove tactics to prey upon the fears of
white Mississippians and conquer based on alienation and
division to win the governor's race) Barbour says that he
begged and pleaded with people to leave, DON'T Believe him,
don't accept his warmth. SHUN HIM. Why the frakk didn't he get
on the horn and tell his County Leaders to issue mandatory
6.) when walmart acts like they're
concerned with humanity and gives some junk food and water
bottles and few million to some relief organizations, thank
the workers, scorn the company. They're nothing more than
rapists and pillagers as much as any looter. They absorb
profits nation and worldwide, concentrate the wealth, screw
their workers, encourage them to apply for lowincome
government aid, coerce manufacturers to leave the US to make a
good at their price, manipulate state and local governments in
tax breaks and infrastructure projects to satisfy their
facilities, and thus diminish and impoverish the communities
they operate in, exporting the acquired capital away, all the
while buying meat from factory slaughterhouses which employ
undocumented illegal immigrant workers, who don't have to have
healthcare, and Soc Sec and the other litany of public trust
costs in a developed society, who work in near unregulated
cruel environments, which produce meat products from
unscrupulous indifferent producers, who lobby to ensure that
the USDA doesn't inspect them and don't care if we are
sickened by their meat, and then having exported our local
economy away, perhaps depriving us all of the money to
maintain say the levees, exhibit the nerve to be champions of
the estate tax elimination so that their families fortunes
will not be taxed at death, fostering to create the Walton
Kingdom in Northwest Arkansas, a near class of landed
None of these should expect any trust,
ever again from Americans for any reason EVER!!!! And they
deserve no deference towards coming together to unite, to
repair. These shit effers are going to screw us again with
incompetence, indifference and selfishness. Everyone
personally affected by this should keep complaining, they
deserve no satisfaction in thnking they've ameliorated anyones
conditions, because they were complicit in allowing the
suffering to happen.
Only by keeping the pressure on
will we ever be rid of them.
Down with False
Republicans and the Pussy Foot Collaborator Democrats!!!
Yes, I'm damn mad right now, and don't wanna take it
anymore. Neither should the rest of you.
