    I FEEL SO BAD FOR ALL THE PEOPLE THAT ARE SUFFERING WHO WAITED FOR THAT MAN (BUSH) TO COME THROUGH.. NOW IS THE TIME TO GET HIM OUT-WHAT IF THIS HAPPENED AGAIN BUT THIS TIME IN CALIFORNIA, NEVADA ARIZONA (MAJORITY WHITE) WELL WE KNOW IT WILL BE CLEANED UP REAL QUICK.. LETS ALL GET TOGETHER AND GET BUSH OUT HE IS NO GOOD TO OUR PEOPLE..

  3. Lori says:

    It infuriates me when you DEMOCRATES blame President Bush for all your troubles as well as anything else you can think of…. New Orleans has known for how many years that the levy’s would not hold and the pumping stations wouldn’t be sufficient for the “Big One” whenever it came. Well it still hasn’t come, it went east of the city and look what has happened! New Orleans and Lousiana were still not anywhere near prepared! Most of the people there in the city are there due to the fact that thet WANTED to stay! Now it it the goverments fault that we can’t get them out fast enough? I don’t think so!!! The people who couldn’t leave due to health or financial reasons, well LA State goverment and New Orleans City goverment should have looked into that one area of evacuation too. It was a mistake by the city goverment to not bring in more buses, (free transportation) or anything else for the low income and elderly people to be able to leave the area.
    The people who didn’t think things would be as bad as they are and now are stuck since the city is a disaster “they” think are to be pitied, and are intitled to be helped faster than the people stuck in the hospitals and the people that tried to evacuate to the Superdome and other area shelters. That is just sheer ignorance!
    The pictures of the looting and stealing items of NO USE to help in a time of disaster is what really pisses me off!!! What do these people (and I use that term VERY LOOSLY) need with TV’s, VCR/DVD’s, vaccums. Fancy Bling purses and belts? They are only trying to help themselves to wants not needs! If what they were after was food and water I can understand that. That is a need to survive. Let me also speak of the wonderful and helpful I might add, people who are shooting at the helicopter rescuers trying to evacuate area hospitals. I realize they are only doing this becuse they need the “drugs” much worse than the sick and injured people! Of course it is widely known that the hospitals are so much better equipped for such disasters that they certainly don’t need their medications or anythng like that!!!! The sick and dying are of only mire importance!
    President Bush declared that area a “disaster” before the hurricane hit and he has continued to update relief as it has been deamed neccessary! Every goverment source and private source as well have been in that area by helicopter 24 hours a day and at night using night vision goggles rescuing people off the roofs ( which is a very dangerous job for these trained individuals). Evacuations and rescues of this magnitude unfortunately take time and patience and a lot stratigic planning. The City of New Orleans has been almost impossible to get into except by air and that makes for a slower transportation of services. The sheer amount of water still in the city makes it impossible for electricity or any other comfort of life avaliable for who knows how long!
    We must also remember that New Orleans was not the only town hit by “Katrina”, Biloxi, Gulf Port, and all across the coast even Florida was hit by this! It is going to take years for these states and towns to rebuild and recover. I f they ever do!! I feel the coverage by the media has been to heavy on New Orleans and the other areas have been forgotten or overlooked. I realize the New Orleans is “famous”, but that should not effect our efforts to help and see that every one get taken care of and get their fair share of help!!
    I myself will miss the “Old new Orleans”, it was one of my favorite vacation spots. I will also miss the beautiful coastline of Mississippi and Alabama. My travel there was truly one of my favorites and definately one of the most beautiful.
    I do hope and pray for all of the families and their loved ones across the coast that God will Bless you and keep you in His loving arms. I pray that He will bring you strength and comfort through this time of grief, unsettlement,and through the rebuilding of your lives, homes, and businesses.

    Thank you, Lori, for showing me again what the face of “Compassionate Conservative” looks like.

    Lori went from:

    “The pictures of the looting and stealing items of NO USE to help in a time of disaster is what really pisses me off!!!

    To: “The City of New Orleans has been almost impossible to get into except by air and that makes for a slower transportation of services”

    To: “it was one of my favorite vacation spots”

    To: “I do hope and pray for all of the families and their loved ones across the coast that God will Bless you and keep you in His loving arms. I pray that He will bring you strength and comfort through this time of grief, unsettlement,and through the rebuilding of your lives, homes, and businesses.

    Lady, and I use the term loosly, I can only say that you picked the wrong place to spout your unknowing and uninformed rhetoric. I am a registered Republican, a resident of Louisiana(not a vacationer), and a former Marine under the Reagan years. Grab a desk wench, school is now in!!!

    1. No one has endorsed the looting of items that were not related to survival.

    2. You are obviously not from Louisiana, if you refer to it as a vacation spot. So how can you even fathom what really happened down here. Sorry Lil Miss Muffet, the spin won’t work on this one. Screaming and Cursing won’t cover up the great injustice done to the very people and states that put Bush into office. To coin a phrase, “The fat lady has sang”.

    3. If New Orleans was so isolated, and so hard to get into, how did our local tv stations and the Wal-Mart trucks get in there? And all the while these people were making it in there, the Federal Gov. sat on their hands, and with their thumbs facing up at that!!!!

    4. To go from downright hatred and anger to Praying and quoting bible verses, is hypocritical, self rightious, and a very good insight into the darkness of your soul.

    I know you might be suprised and wonder why a Republican is posting on here and kicking down your statue you obviously want to erect of Bush and yourself. It’s quite simple. Reality!!!!!

    So in closing, on the behalf of the State of Louisiana, save your prayers, He never knew you!!! Congradulations, you’ve been Punked!!!

  6. Donnie from Houma, LA

    That’s telling her! Unfortunately it seems that some of have not woken up to reality yet.

  7. kj says:

    Donnie! LOL Love it. Where is Dave from Princeton? He MUST read this. This made my morning.

  8. Donnie From Houma, LA says:

    KJ, if you liked that, wait till you get look at the blog Pamela just posted for me. After this, the GOP might want to blame me for the slow response.
