  3. Hi Grit

    You are too kind. It’s just a nice reminder of the real criminals in the Hurricane Katrina fiasco.

  4. How about this gem.
    ” We will stay as long as it takes to help citizens rebuild their communities and their lives. And all who question the future of the Crescent City need to know: There is no way to imagine America without New Orleans, and this great city will rise again.”
    LOL! What a joke! I am a conservative New Orleanian. Keep drinking the koolaid. The world knows what happened here. As Gingrich says, this government is dysfunctional and needs to change.

    Partisans think if they repeat things long enough what they say becomes the truth. It doesn’t. We are eye witnesses to the incompetence and ineptitude of this administration. Open your eyes and see it for what it is.

  5. Hi doctorj

    Oh man, depending on government especially the socialist-democrats you are forced to deal with must be frustrating. I hope your choices will improve by the next election.

    I often wonder what it would be like if today’s news media actually reported the truth instead of bias garbage. It has become so easy to blame the other guy making no one accountable for their mistakes and even more important their incompetence. I can only imagine that NO would be well on it’s way to full recovery if this were the case.

    Yes we have to depend on government. We depend on government to build safe levees. We depend on government to protect its citizens. My hometown was destroyed due to government negligence. http://www.levees.org Call me crazy, but when I see incompetence with my tax dollars, it makes me furious. When I see my fellow Americans support incompetence because it is their party, it makes me furious. I am telling you, you are getting a spun story of the Gulf South, MS and LA. My mother lives a block off the beach in Pass Christian, MS and NOTHING is happening there just like NOTHING is happening in New Orleans. Big company after big company getting their share of government contracts, while pennies actually make it to the ground where it is needed. WHERE IT IS NEEDED. But just keep turning your back. That is what I learned from this disaster. The myth of American government giving a rat’s ass for its citizens is a myth. Why do I send $1000 a week to this government? Oh yeah, it is to make Iraq safe for democracy.

  7. Hi doctorj

    Our forefathers attempted to protect us from government and it’s inherent corruption, but over time they have whittled away most of the safe guards.

    We as citizens keep putting the same old people in so I guess we have no one to blame but ourselves. As someone once said, “What we permit, we allow.”

  8. Hi LC,

    I try to be a giver.

    Hi doctorj,

    First, I feel compelled to mention that anyone who lives a block from the ocean should have enough sense to know that the ocean will wipe them out eventually. That, after all, is nature. Thus, it seems reasonable that, those willing to gamble on nature’s benevolence, should shoulder the burden of their eventual loss. Sorry, but until the coastal dwellers start sending the rest of us free sea food, I see no reason we should help rebuild your beach house.

    Second, as to the levees in New Orleans, they would have been in fine shape, had not billions of dollars in Federal aid been siphoned off into the pockets of corrupt local and State officials. I would suggest that if the residents of a city built below sea level next to an ocean, want civil servants who will actually try to protect them, they do better than returning William Jefferson the Congress.

    Third, if you are making enough to pay $1,000 per week in Federal taxes, it seems more than reasonable to suggest that YOU take care of your momma, instead of trying to suckle from the Government teat.

  9. Hi Grit

    You have opened my eyes to something I have completely missed. Your idea seems to be the only way to rectify the situation. As soon as New Orleans has completed its fleecing of the nation in rebuilding projects, as repayment they must supply the nation with ocean delicacies free of charge… forever.

    Brilliant!
