Because some people out there didn't want to vote for the fella who wasn't white...
I was thinking the same thing today, Ms. Rose. Wonder where to go to offer housing and such to families?
Remove Clinton's gas tax.
"But I have been wrong before."
posting this 1st post is another example
Prayers for everybody !!!
That is why the military took over...
I personally think she is about to lose it. She is just not up to the task that is on her shoulders.
Welcome to FR.
Sorry noone welcomed you on the previous thread (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1473373/posts?page=2484#2484), it moved so fast and then closed we never got a chance.
Prayers extended for your family: it sounds as if they are safe, though their losses may be great.
What you are describing from the flyover sounds horrific. Right now so much is up in the air, it seems hard to fathom they would NOT be able to rebuild... there is so much not there anymore.
I have floor space and extra food.
They have done a lot to harm the city, including dikes that funnel river water through the delta in such a way as to erode the land that served as a buffer between NO and the Gulf.
This has been driving me nuts as well. Seems like so much water so quickly. I understand they don't know where all the breeches are. Could somebody here explain to me if it's possible the river levy has been compromised from underneath... maybe just some sort of saturation?
Absolutely. CNN's coverage has been outstanding.
I just cannot watch Fox for big news stories, CNN is much better. Fox better get their act together or else CNN is going to catch up with them.
You won't regret it. They're doing a great job, like they did with the Pope's funeral.
Haven't seen her on T.V. today, only reading about it here. That bad huh?
Sheraton Hotel 5th floor ballroom...person trapped needing emergency life support medication
Wow. That's enough to start a PANIC!
The are moving pretty fast slogging through the water and getting their "shopping" done.
"First of all the Admin Moderators need to set your threads up on the top subject board to where you don't have to look for this like Cindy S., Karl Rowe, etc. This is an American tragedy and all Freepers need to be able to come right to this. I found out about Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, and the news like I feared is horrible."
I fourth this opinion.
N.O. ordered complete evacuation by governor per MSNBC
ExcellenceOverDiversity has been banned or suspended.
I saw Shep at 3 for a half hour..hate to say it..but he was superb..just great....
And people think that conservatives can't be unbiased! ;)
If the oil is not coming into this country, there will be a world wide glut on the market. Oil prices world wide will crash. However if you can't get it into this country that doesn't help us. But, if we can't take in oil, OPEC will be trying to give it away. The movie did not take into consideration that all the oil we were not taking in anymore had to go somewhere. If our economy fails and can't buy from China, then their economy will also fail.
CNN and Wolf Blitzer are kicking Fox's ass right now.
Probably worse, as so many of these people do not have insurance.
Seems like CNN is still really the only 24/7 news channel. The other ones have special shows that also replay late at night.
As the Governor, you have to be a whole lot less emotional than this Governor. She is out of her league and the people of LA need someone with strength right now.
Or just get Mississippi to temporarily annex Louisiana and let Haley Barbour handle it.
An associate of mine works at WDSU and stayed behind in N.O. while much of the rest of the staff went to Jackson. His wife also stayed behind since she works at Charity Hospital. Any word on how the TV studio or the Hospital are making out ? I'm kind of worried about them.
I agree, CNN much better on this, even tho I despise the lefties.
Oh sheesh CNN running the cindy sheehan ad.
Yep... that's the one. I forgot about the sending shipping to Houston part.
I posted a long update to a closed thread and wasn't able to retrieve it. Anyway, I'll do it again, but shorter.
For info from the NO area, your best bet is to tune your radio, after dark, to WWL 870 am. It can be picked up nationally after dark.
I listened all through the night last night and learned:
Martial law has been declared in Jefferson Parish through at least Monday morning. After that time, you will only e allowed to enter with proper ID, and will be asked to stay only long enough to survey damage and retrieve belongings.
Slidell has no communication at all, which explains the near news blackout. The St. Tammany govt did manage to get a press release out which stated that the're working and to stay away for now. The release made no mention whatsoever about damages.
People called in to WWl with the following info about Slidell:
Water tower down. Don't know which one.
Old Spanish Trail is now the new shoreline for Lake Pontchartrain.
Very little info still. Sorry.
People called in from mid city saying water was still rising. Turns out there was a two-block section of the 17tj street canal levee broken and water was rushing onto Canal Blvd like a white water river.
People were being advised to get onto their roofs, and not into their attics without axes or crowbars.
Most of hte buildings in teh CBD have every window blown out. NO downtown was described repeatedly as Beiruit with water.
It seems the NO and Slidell area were impacted more severely than the news has been reporting.
Please ping me with any Slidell news, as it looksl ike I wont' be able to return home for weeks.
Please excuse spelling etc. I'm fighting with a counsin's AOL, which keeps trying to cut me off.
Keep us in your prayers y'all. I still don't know what awaits me. My family is safe, so I'm very grateful to God for that.
We could have had Bobby Jindal who had a plan and can think on his feet. Too many people though couldn't get past his East Indian heritage. My lib sister is getting it now. Hopefully others will also.
Had to turn it off. That face. That voice.
Apropos of Katrina's track, it's begun rainin' like hell in central PA ...
I heard that Charity is surrounded by floodwaters or is flooded.
But-but- diversity is our strength!
I predicted gas lines would start happening by the end of the week.
Very ugly commercial with a closeup of Cindy Sheehan calling Bush a liar and saying that he killed her son, right in the middle of CNN's hurricane coverage.
One word: backfire.
Okay.....that's my SECOND laugh of the day!
It's a staging/logistics move, I think. Moving them to the Super Dome means you only have to open one route out of the city. Same principle as FedEx.
Plus which, you know you've got dry places to put thousands of people, even if it is horrific in there.
