NIZZLE RANT!!

Question for those of you who read the zone.....Have I since the disaster said that I don’t support an independent commission? NO!
Have I said that the federal government is not at fault AT ALL, NO.
I have yet to read on a single liberal blog (I HAVE THEM ON MY SIDEBAR I READ THEM ALL EVERYDAY) NOT ONE LIBERAL BLOG mention the state or local governments’ responsibility in this mess.

NOT ONE has mentioned the money that went to Louisiana prior to the disaster.

NOT ONE talked about the incompetence of the Mayor.

NOT ONE, mentioned the governor “needing” 24 more hours to make her decision on bringing in the guard.

NOT ONE has talked about the lawlessness that went on after the storm.

NOT ONE mentioned the evacuation plan that was not implemented.

NOT ONE, talked about the devastation that took place in Mississippi as if NO blacks lived there.

NOT ONE has even mentioned the 60 BILLION plus the president has and will throw into fixing and rebuilding NOLA.

ITS ALL ABOUT BUSH!

AN INDEPENDENT COMMISSION IS ALL ABOUT POLITICS, PERIOD.
These people don’t give a shit about what really happened or the “so-called” truth.
Lets see just who would be on this commission, take a guess. FORMER POLITICIANS!
This is a blog war folks yes its politically motivated. Snoop has his opinions and I post accordingly. But I don’t run nor hide from insight, information, or being educated on something. I keep saying, liberals you have the stage, refute what I’m posting. I don’t delete comments, I don’t run from your supposed truth. This is about “sides” my side is not perfect, my views are not perfect, I’m not always right, but I’m pretty damm close.
But regardless of what you liberals say your views destroy this country. Is Snoop saying liberals must go away NO! I have enough commonsense to know that this world functions on BALANCE. You have wacko on the right and left. But liberals views to me as a black man are corrosive. Liberalism is what put those people in a helpless situation.
Read the “poverty pimp” poem. You liberals are as predictable as the Kansas wind.
Just admit you hate BUSH and nothing else matters.
You wonder why liberals LEAN RIGHT to get elected and GOVERN LEFT once they are elected? Because liberals can’t show their true colors. IGNORANCE is your greatest weapon. PROPAGANDA, the native tongue.

The Lost City of New Orleans? FULL ARTICLE
Risk & Insurance, Dec, 2000 by Lori Widmer

Louisiana's marshlands, the only buffer for hurricanes that come out of the Gulf, are slipping into the ocean at an alarming rate. New search indicates that just one major hurricane could put New Orleans under water.

The Big Easy is in big trouble. New Orleans is sinking. And fast. But what's the big deal? Local businesses and residents have heard it all before. They've built levees to control the raging Mississippi. They've developed pumping systems to deal with rain and flooding. They've dug canals to move the water out of the city. And still they survive, wearing the battle scars earned from each hurricane and each flood as badges of honor.

New research by the U.S. Geological Survey, however, indicates that New Orleans is sinking faster than many realize and could be under water within 50 years. The city is facing a series of issues--disappearing wetlands that protect from hurricanes, levees that are too low to hold back flood waters, rising water tables, to name a few--that if not addressed soon could have New Orleans suffering the same fate as Atlantis.

HEY FOLKS!! CHECK THIS OUT!! Ray Nagin: School Buses Not Good Enough


YELLOW BUSSES OR YOUR ASS IS GONNA DROWN, HMMMMM

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin garnered a ton of publicity with a profanity-laced interview he gave to WWL radio last Thursday, where he blasted President Bush and Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco for not coming to rescue his city in time.
However, Nagin's most newsworthy comments - where he explained why he didn't use hundreds of city school buses to evacuate his city's flood victims - went almost unnoticed.
Turns out, Nagin turned his nose up at the yellow buses, demanding more comfortable Greyhound coaches instead.
"I need 500 buses, man," he told WWL. "One of the briefings we had they were talking about getting, you know, public school bus drivers to come down here and bus people out of here."
Nagin described his response:
"I'm like - you've got to be kidding me. This is a natural disaster. Get every doggone Greyhound bus line in the country and get their asses moving to New Orleans."
While Nagin was waiting for his Greyhound fleet, Katrina's floodwaters swamped his school buses, rendering them unusable.

Cause some of you need a good laugh today!!

Dean: Race Played a Role in Katrina Deaths

By DENISE KALETTE
Associated Press Writer

Race was a factor in the death toll from Hurricane Katrina, Howard Dean told members of the National Baptist Convention of America on Wednesday at the group's annual meeting.

Dean, chairman of the Democratic party, made the comments to the Baptists' Political and Social Justice Commission. The Baptist Convention, with an estimated 3.5 million members, is one of the largest black religious groups in the country.

"We must ... come to terms with the ugly truth that skin color, age and economics played a deadly role in who survived and who did not," Dean said.

Dean said Americans have a moral responsibility to not ignore the devastating damage caused by Hurricane Katrina when it struck the Gulf Coast.

The former presidential candidate said the government will be judged by how it treats the old, the young and the poor.

"People are poor in different parts of the country. They are not refugees. They are Americans," he said.

Dean said that instead of considering proposed estate tax breaks, the Senate should channel the money into disaster relief.

"Shall we give that to the wealthiest people in the country, or should we rebuild New Orleans?" Dean said.

Dean also urged the government to exempt victims of Hurricane Katrina from a stricter new bankruptcy law for one year.

Ken Mehlman, Dean's counterpart at the Republican National Committee, said he hoped Dean "will match his rhetoric with his support for reforms that replace bureaucracy and entitlement with hope and opportunity."

Stephen J. Thurston, president of the Baptist Convention, said there was a lack of response and sensitivity by the government following the Gulf Coast disaster.
