I couldn't see the video. The guy I believe has taken it off, unless you want to donate to support his bandwidth.
Well, she IS a liberal Democrat - I guess that's the same thing.
I thought most of South La was Catholic... Them Busses shure look Baptist to me!

"Of course, our county isn't likely to ever end up under 20 feet of water, because who would be that stupid? But there could be other disasters that prevent us from using our SUVs."
Utilizing the school bus routes already in existence, it should be fairly straightforward (time consuming, perhaps, but not difficult otherwise) to identify willing individuals with a Class C (not required, but at least they've driven large trucks), and set up a plan to get these drivers to the vehicles in an adequate amount of time. There will likely be multiple trips, since the route was set up for students only, and now you have the entire population. But, it would work, provided there was ample fuel and the roads weren't obstructed. Contraflow on multilane roads with a dedicated bus lane out and back in would likely do the trick in larger metros, I'd think.
Maybe the next time "THE PLAN" will be scuba lessons and equipment for all citizens of NO.
Eveidentaqlly Nagin doesn't belive in mass transit either, otherwise he would have used it.
But it is a union racket...

An inflatable raft would have come in handy. Water purification tablets, too.
Wonder if the Mayor knows how to get to MapQuest?
She is a Democrat.
The answer should be self evident.
You don't have to bus most people, just those who don't have cars.
You need to do mass mailings to collect information about people who would need transportation. Cross-reference with tax records and other information, and presume you have to bus everybody in areas where more than 5% of the respondents request assistance.
Then also publish numbers to be called, and post bus emergency evacuation collection points throughout the city for people who might not otherwise be able to respond.
Not something I would spend a lot of money on in our county, but I would make it mandatory for a city under sea level which counts on power to keep from flooding even in NORMAL circumstances.
Off-topic sad observation: I'm hoping we get hit by the remnants of Ophelia, because we haven't had any rain since before Katrina, and I'm tired of watering the grass.
Right now Google will let you superimpose the trip directions over the post-Katrina sat-photos. It's just appalling to see.
I wish I could post the image, but it's tiled. And I don't know how to get Google to give me a link to the coordinates. People will have to go to maps.google.com and plug in the addresses themselves.

Here it is. He doesn't want it hotlinked but it works if you click off of his page (which actually uses more bandwidth as you have to load all the other things on his page too in addition to just the video, go figure).
On the top right there's a link that says "link to this page."
"Mayor Nagin and most mayors in this country have a hard time getting their people to work on a sunny day"
What's wrong with you all. Those buses are for VOTING only - sunny or not, rain or shine.
It is really very simple - DemocRats are communists
"Liberalism is a mental disorder." Best comment I've ever heard from the weirdo Savage.
Yes the evil Karl Rove is hiding the bodies, and in fact is re-animating them as Republican Zombies for Bush (RZ4B).
And cities are where the vast majority of Democratic votes come from in national elections. Yet the utter failure of these Democratic local governments, defensive of their autonomy, is STILL the White House's fault.
At least she's true to her family tradition as crooked, stupid Democrats.
At least these two incompetent fools are proving that stupidity and corruption is not a gender thing in Louisiana.
"and that's the truth."
good pickup. Agree

So there is! Thank you.
O.K., Now not only does she sound incredibly stupid, she seems proud of it!
Mary quite contrary has a nice "angelic smile" methinks is a good fake out. She was scowling at the end of the interview on Fox.....Chris Wallace did a nice job hammering her with the facts and she lost it at the end of the question of where past federal funds designated for levee projects went unaccounted for? She kept blaming the Feds...
Mary Landscrew is my name for her.
I've rolled many ideas like this around!!!
You see it was all a bad mistake...the local TV stations played an old Jesse Jackson sound bite that said "Stay out of the Bushes!"
However due to the atmospheric distortion and and echo effect it sounded like "STAY OUTTA DA BUSES! STAY OUTTA DA BUSES!!!"
I do imagine people like her to be arrested and tried in public. Her little brother is going to as radioactive as Blanc-hole and that lyin' mayor hidin' out in Dallas with his family. The long and deep corruptions of LA's cash 'n' carry politics shall be dragged before the nation's public.
So Sen. Mary Landrieu (Dimwit Louisiana), the President of the United States is responsible for ensuring that city, county, state and federal employess show up for work?? Maybe he should interview them and write thier annual evaluation reports as well - not to mention handling the requests for vacations, sick leave etc... I mean, seriously, the President surely has enough time to handle these matters. The taxpayers could even save a lot of money in the process!! Positions such as Mayor or Govenor are really quite antiquated and should be eliminated (with due compensation of course!).
I'm all for your proposal! Concentration of all power at the federal level and the elimination of state and local governments!! Wow, maybe we should let the President handle ALL government matters. Imagine the efficiency of a single man/women system! No long politcal nonsense in a parlamentary body - just good sound executive decisions.
Of course, we wouldn't want just anybody in that position. He/She must have nuance and global vision. He/She should love children, animals and the environment and, if at all possible, be a vegetarian as well.
Heh, should have got Teddy to drive, he knows how to drive in water...
Thanks for posting this unbelievable exchange in transcript form. I saw it on TV and was incredulous. I expected a pack of lies but this was an amazing assortment.
I loved it when she kept talking over Wallace and he finally said, "It works better if I ask questions."

Plantation Mentality should be the disease that has been brought to light as a result of Katrina.
He must have been sleeping it off, just like Kennedy.
I thought we agreed that "Bush's fault" was getting tired and overused when discussing problems that had nothing to do with the president.
"If Sen. Mary Landrieu were as good at busing black people to safety as she was at busing them to the polls to vote, none of them would have died."
Sen. Landrieu's stupidity is just....well....it's breathtaking.
My new tagline:
Not a nice enough bus............. Beggin' Nagin wants Greyhounds.
Well, she IS a liberal, and liberalism is a mental illness, so that should answer your question.
I certainly hope someone in the RNC is compiling a list of all these assinine comments from these morons. It's time to quit turning the other cheek. It's time to expose these idiots. I want to see the Republicans get some stones and publically rebuke everyone of these insane dims. I know it will never happen.
It's the mayor's job to get people to work??? D@mn! And here I've been spending my own money on my own gas and getting myself to work all this time! Where do I complain? Who do I sue to get all that money back?
>>"I like when she danced the sidestep on why the Governor ..."
Now you see me, now you don't LOL!!!!
Wonder if anyone still rents "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas"?<<
Honestly, that's all I could think of!
Ironically, it was Orleans Parish that manufactured the "votes" at the last hour to pull her out of Terrell's dust in that run-off election. She's a nasty b*tch and she showed her true colors then. Why should we expect anything different now? Intelligence isn't one of her strong suits either. The woman is sharp as a bowling ball.
That statement coming from a rat politician is about a believable as a used car salesman telling you he's honest.
