I don't know psychochick, but I'm glad she's OK. As an aside, my uncle and aunt live in Baton Rouge but they were on vacation in Iowa when she hit.

it has been a long time since i have posted on here but this situation has shone a harsh spotlight on our elected officials and they do not look good, they are being shown as incompetent and inneficient, the media is starting to ask questions and they are getting no answers, while our elected leaders pat each other on the back and say what a good job they are doing, nothing is being done, people are suffering and dying and the president poses for a photo op,
there will be plenty of time to shed the blame, and steal credit but the sad truth is that this is a crisis that has been mishandled at every level...a sad response for the richest nation on earth

Someone has posted a thread about possible cannibalism. I guess it must be on some people's minds because it has been days since food has been available, but imagine the nightmare of having to psychologically recover from that.

The cannabalism thread got trashcanned because there's no proof. The hyperlink is here:

www.huffingtonpost.com...

...Check his latest blog entry. No proof. And cannablism within four days, (uhh, except among crazed drug addicts), is absurd.

Is anyone not offended by the upside down US flag as the icon for this topic?

Editorial in Star Tribune:



Scientists at Louisiana State University say their computer models now suggest as many as 80,000 people may have perished.

Not at all. The upside down flag is a distress signal and signifies that the country is in a crisis. I hope you can see this situation as a crisis.

WOW..I just read the info on pumping out NO....It's going to be 2 1/2 years before rebuilding.....I heard on the radio on the way in that, due to contaminates in the water that is currently flooding peoples homes that a lot of flooded houses may have to be torn done, because they would be to toxic to live in. So we are talking 6 months to just drain the city, when would people start being able to come back? I've heard estimates of 4 months, but how do you go back to a place that is still being pumped out? I would think bringing people back too soon would hamper the drying out effort as well, but then again, you can't tell 480,000 people(I think?) 'You can't go home for 2 1/2 years'

And that was the optimistic(Pumping a ft of water a day and no more storms hit the area).....It could easily be 2010 before NO is back to normal...Eeek


The pumping stations are there to pump the water that seeps in daily. The area has extreemly high humidity. It also rains nearly every day. Dry out is something that will probably never happen.

Any chance of getting a sat link after night falls. The difference between the areas with lights and those without should be dramatic.

Ok. I dont like saying this because a lot of people out there are still suffering on the ground.

But it has to be said:

the plan is to get rid of New Orleans.

they have been slowly doing it already with its natural sea defences in the Gulf of Mexico.

nothing else can explain the slow response. they wanted to delay as long as possible so that people would "hate their own city" and turn their back on it.

and you should KNOW who broke the leeves.

the city was a burden on the economy and now it is perfect excuse for THEM to start over. Move the people out and relocate them in other states.

the plan is this:

in a few years the whole site will be turned into one huge military facility.


keep watching.

Here is a link to the story about the 20 year old who stole the bus and drove it to the astrodome. I mentioned this story earlier a few pages back but didn't have a link so here you all go.

Jabbar Gibson - "Mad Max"

Also, foxnews actually ran an interview with him and the story was slightly different.

understand that there is NO rational thought going on in new orleans. we have reverted to primal instincts down there. the one thought is 'SURVIVE' thats it .

The reality of Katrina is more than what is going on in NOLA. There is 90,000 square miles of destruction. The death toll will likely be over 10,000. The homeless and unemployed who have lost everything is in the hundreds of thousands. Oil rigs in the gulf are missing. Oil production has been shut down in the affected areas.

I know that you are proud of your cousin's husband. I hold all of the folks who acted heroically in the highest regards. What this man and others did shows the true character of our people. They put their own lives in danger to save others.

But to all of the folks sitting safely behind their computers, I say this. You may feel sad or sorry for those affected directly by this hurricane, but this is going to affect the entire country. When this country runs out of oil, we will all feel it. Be prepared now. This is not being covered to delay the panic that is about to hit this country.

Don't let yourself be distracted by the news that is being pumped out on FOX, CNN and MSNBC. Do some research on your own.
