    The Gulf Coast, Grand Isle and Plaquemines can in NO way be compared to New Orleans in my opinion having first-hand knowledge of all. NOLA is just the epitome of political sewage if there ever has been one... Plaquemines is bad, but NOLA can't even be described compared to Plaq, St. B and the Gulf Coast.

    I know you chemicalman have been around long enough that you may be aware of my efforts to fight corruption here, and if you only knew full well the threats and duress I have endured in my lone efforts in doing so also.

    I come here requesting help for a forgotten and devastated peoples at ground zero of one of the most horrific natural disasters in our nation's history from the Freep of old that I knew and had great respect and admiration for, and helped all I could when I was able, and what do I get?

    I am in no way affected like these people are and am NOT requesting ANYTHING for myself, I am trying to help others.

    I sure hope Mr Robinson and crew are proud how their realm has evolved...

    As I said, Freep has changed considerably since I was pro-active here in years past, but I wouldn't say for the better.

    Quote: "It's their fault the state is going deeper and deeper into the toilet." While it is THEIR fault, it is the fault of the citizens FOR NOT CDOING THEIR CIVIL FUTY TO CONTROL THEIR GOVERNMENT

    Even the Great, double-sized, nuclear-water-bombing flush of '05, Katrina & Rita, couldn't even rid this state of it's sewage politics and politicians.

    We are in trouble folks, and without the help of the rest of the Nation and the USDOJ, as I have predicted previously, Louisiana is well on it's way to becoming similar in nature to a 3rd world, narco-terroristic region...

    I guess Freep has changed considerably since I was pro-active here in years past, but I wouldn't say for the better.

    "I suggest you and the local authorities spend the federal money wisely. If LA fails to do so, this FReeper won't be the only one with harsh words for the good people of LA." That's one of the primary issues I would guess we need help with, that the Federal Government (whom should be vigilantly overseeing the spending and handling of Federal monies) and the locals are pilfering the monies and resources that are being sent, BUT ONE point in case:

    poobear, I go back 6 years here on Freep, and MUCH longer elsewhere, and I have responded MANY times to people in distress and crises all over this country.

    Your claim to "deal with it ourselves" could have VERY easily given me a very selfish impression of Floridians, but then I am above that mentality and know better...

    MANY times in the past, knowing the effects of hurricanes, the people of Plaquemines Parish have sent funds, supplies and people to hurricane stricken areas MANY times in the past, because we knew first hand...

    I agree with you TOTALLY on the locals, and if you only knew what has been done to me in fighting these dirty people and what they do AND DID TO MY CHILDREN IN RETAILIATION FOR EXPOSING THEM.

    BUT, since the citizens of this state cannot seem to come together and effectively overcome the political mafia down here (and the people are even more fractured and disorganized now), I honestly think and believe, after MUCH AND LONG study and analysis, that the Federal Government needs to do more in taking control of the situation, or giving more control to lower level people and local officials, but at the same time watching them like an extremely hungry bear or American bald eagle and when they catch them stealing or dealing, whack them as hard as they can with a Federal gavel...

    I have personallly loaded probably 50-75 million of gallons of propane and butane in the disaster zone which was delivered to, FLORIDA! AND also, I worked for 3 years at the *Tampa Electric* (TECO) Coal transfer terminal in Davant, LA in Plaquemines Parish that ships nearly all of the coal your power plants burn in Florida.

    Is that getting a little closer to home for you now?

    Your propane, butane and electricty are going up too my friend...

    Sir, *PLEASE* do not misinterpret me, I am not saying the people themselves have not done enough or owe us ANYTHING.

    What I am saying, is YOUR bureaucrats are making a mockery out of the monies and physical efforts and volunteer efforts that people unselfishly made under some VERY extremely harsh and rancid conditions, I am merely pleading for help (how and exactly what I am unsure), but I just know the bureaucrats are miserably fumbling the reconstruction and recovery efforts, and a lot of politically connected people are getting rich while people such as a recent episode wherein a blind woman whose home IS GONE cannot even get a FEMA trailer after repeated requests for almost a year now while others whom obviously do not need them are repeatedly offered these trailers and other aid.

    There is so much, I as an individual don't know where to begin.

    The primary thing is total waste and mismanagement by FEMA and lack of taking the controls of our locals.

    For example, there are literally thousands if not tens of thousands who need FEMA trailers right now, STILL YET, and there has been approximately 10,000 FEMA trailers sitting in storage at some leased site (I think at an airport) in Arkansas since a month or 2 after the water-bombing, and these trailers are now rotting and infested with termites and insects from reports in the media. Also, They need to give more control to the locals over the logistics and what actually gets done (but at the same time watch them like a hawk because many are EXTREMELY greedy and outright dirty thieves).

    I'm just trying to do what I can, it is very difficult to cope with but I am just trying to help people whom I know and have worked with for many years. I am a 20 year transplant here, but I have spent most of my adult life here and knew this day would come and warned many people whom pretty much blew me off, but now they know I knew what I Was talking about...

    Again, I SINCERELY appreciate all that the people of this country have done for us, but our bureaucrats are making a mockery of all the volunteer efforts that have been put into recovery and reconstruction through total incompetence and back room dealings that in the end get little, if much at all accomplished for those whom are most in need of something as simple as having a trailer that has already been purchased by FEMA and just sits dormant many, many miles away from where it is most needed, all the while it is costing a LOT of $$$ to just keep it sitting there rotting and unoccupied...

    While I do sincerely appreciate the contributions that have been made to date, abandoning the region given it's infrastructure relevance is NOT the answer.

    For example, relative to your claim and others that MANY have moved and abandoned the place, the last refinery built in the US from the ground up in the 70's, the Gulf facility at Alliance in Plaquemines Parish which is now owned by ConocoPhilips, just gave their workers an approximate 30% across the board pay increase to keep them here.

    I'm going to print this thread as it stands right now, so I can come back in 18-24 months when gas is $6 per gallon and natural gas has quadrupled, and I will then repost the scans and replies I received to my appeal for assistance and action as the public helplessly and futily screams and complains, and wonders why, gas is $6 per gallon...

    Plaquemines Parish is the heart of the US oil and Natural Gas infrastructure in the US and the marine gateway to the world for 30 US States.

    300 years of development and of even more interest is the last 100 years and a LOT of infrastructure development in our oil, natural gas and chemicals infrastructure which has been developed during that time, which is definitely a matter of National Security...

    Like I said just a bit ago, $6 a gallon gas and quadrupled natural gas is in your future... And I do know about the oil and gas industry...

    I'm more focused on the beauracrats than mopping up oil, and if you knew my background and current disposition, and had and compassion and understanding whatsoever, I seriously doubt you would have even asked me that question.

    *Please*, read the threads, and let's see if Freep can help these people that FEMA and the beauracrats ARE FAILING...

    Oh, and one more thing or relevance Mr. Zachary,

    When you're paying $6 for a gallon of gas and the cost of natural gas quadruples, maybe then you will understand what the problem is down here, because it will be your problem wherever you are...

    Yeah, that's exactly the problems there Mr. Zachary.
    And I could tell by the obvious fact that you read the threads I posted...
