No pessamist I saying learn a few facts first. From the discussion on this topic last night I think its shown to me and several conservative louisiana freepers who now are so hurt they dont come on here that the lack of thinking on this issue by many is incredible. We are not unprepared to make a few changes but really are sorry if we are not prepared to sit by while most of the State below I-10 becomes a swamp
I applaud you for that! While admitting I don't know enough about Louisiana to have a solid view of what should be done, what I do know is that the environmental radicals are all in favor of turning vast swaths of the entire country back into wilderness. They probably see Katrina as an opportunity to "re-wild" LA and MS, and I'd hate to see them get a victory.
I hear the 'urban planners' making plans for your cities, and I just cringe. Th "Greenways" that are being promoted around the country are intended (but the groups that lobby for them) to be the start of 'connections' between 'bioreserves' where all animal life will be protected. I've been to re-wilding conferences and meetings, and I guarantee those people are rubbing their hands with glee at making NO into their vision of what an American city should be - a limited footprint high density human habitation area with green corridors that will all the animals from the surrounding wildlands to pass through unimpeded. Don't let them take control! Let Capitalism lead the way in providing the kind of city people want when they vote with their dollars.
