If I get this pasted go to the near bottom of the Washington Post article and see how K. Blanco thought it better to avoid Martial Law declared in her state than to save the lives of her people.
and - she is advised by the law firm of Clintoon's ex, former director Witt in how to avoid a "takeover"
...why aint my thingie -paste of url working?
ok somebody got to type it out and then paste it properly because in the article by the Wapo it says that she - Blanco refused because she could be "blamed" for whatever happened...
OK, fine, then get off his back about it.
A working knowledge of basic HTML helps. :)
Here ya go: http://msnbc.msn.com/id/9189916
I did it. I think I got it pasted this time. Sorry I'm an idjit
No biggie, we fixed it.
I had the admin add the URL to your article space above :)
Thanky, thanky. Hey I dont like MSNBC any more than you do. Just happened to see it on there that's all.
They buried it quick though.
I never thought it would come to this that I would want the federal government to have the means to overrule a governor... but I think they need a mechanism where the federal government can consult neighboring governors to get a consensus of the region and overrule an individual governor in a natural disaster or the like. Or they just need a provision that lets them bag a crazy witch and federalize the whole corrupt stinkin' thing.
I liked Scarborough. But something happened to him :(
He get the Shep-Jerry syndrome?
None of the "Blame Bush First" crowd even bothers with that factoid. Liberals steer clear of facts anyway as it is. What do you expect? NOLA is run by a bunch of corrupt DUmmies.
this text is from the Washington Post...
Be Nice, This is a very difficult time for many.
Pretty close I hear. He was shaking his head at Bush Admin today I read elsewhere here on FR. But the word on FR has him "going to the dark side" long before Katrina.
Correct- if you follow the MSNBC link they've published the compost story. Is that becoming more common, or did I just never notice before?
At the end of the day do you think that Mayor Nagin was hired because of his leadership abilities or because of the color of his skin.
Therein lies the problem.
Multiculturism, diversity and political correctness kill.
Now THAT I like the sound of.
Please don't post unexcerpted articles as replies.
Sorry! I thought because I excerpted it, and there was no excerpt above in the first post, it was okay?
(being that it was an MSNBC excerpt of a WaPo article, another excerpt?)
MSNBC and WaPo both need excerpting, even if they're copied from alternative sources. In a nutshell, yep.
Bookmark this, we keep it updated.
This is an accurate assesment. Beware of what you read.
Actually, the mechanism was already put in place by the President: The National Response Plan.
The plan includes the following:
Standard procedures regarding requests for assistance may be expedited or, under extreme circumstances, suspended in the immediate aftermath of an event of catastrophic magnitude.
The Mayor of the Parrish is in charge of DP! There was no indication this was done.
Thank you for the link: I did know about MSNBC and WaPo... but yes, it needs bookmarking for the new adds/rules.
I actually did excerpt my reply - 1/4 of a 2 page article. Was the excerpt too long? Is that what was wrong? Or can we not post excerpts AS replies?
What? Haven't you watched TV?
Bush and Laura were on vacation watching TV as black people suffered and died.
You know Bush hates Blacks don't you?
He also refused to give money to blacks for their levees.
And he did not sign Kyoto, which he knew would kill people, and he loves killing.
There is NO spinning, it is fact.
I heard it on TV.
I didn't know for sure, you didn't post a link. If it's only a quarter, no problem, I'll restore it, but in those situations, a link is always good.
Perhaps this had to happen so the next time, this could be invoked with "You don't want another New Orleans, do you?"
Thanks very much for the link.
You are kidding me?
roses of sharon was kidding rofl
placemark, night! (and thank you again)
(properly chastened... seriously... and now I hope to retire using the word "excerpt" in all my posts for 24 hours.) :-)
I thought so.........
was a good one haha. But so true! People believe everything that they hear, argh!
He wasn't hired. He was elected through the second-most corrupt political system in America which means something else entirely and is unrelated to either his abilities or race but rather his ability to serve the Democratic Party of Louisiana.
Hey, I'm not ripping on you. You asked for some help for this poster, I started reading the thread, and well, we started talking. You didn't do anything wrong really, and maybe I reacted as a mod and not my freeper self. Remember, we're always freepers first. Good talk though.
Very True, I wish people would could unite in a situation as hard as this.
That trip to Vegas might still happen for you after all!
Why am I not surprised the name of Clinton has turned up?
This Country is founded upon freedom. Finding the common bond is not hard. (If You Try)
