I'm new to forums, please excuse and correct mistakes.
We are one of thousands of families who are opening their homes to US citizens of New Orleans. We live in Washington state as does my sister who has
opened her home. When my sister called the Gov. office she was told they couldn't help her and she should call the Red Cross. The Red Cross said
"We don't do that 'mam". They said she doesn't know what "kind" of people would come and they needed to keep them all together in groups so
they could receive phsych care and BTW you can send money.
I found this while looking for Washingtons response:
"Wherever the evacuees end up staying, state officials will try to keep them together in one area to be able to keep better track of them and support
their needs, said Rob Harper of the state's Emergency Management Division."
The rest of the article sounds peachy except:
"In Seattle, officials were taking inventory of both public and private housing, such as the old barracks at the former Sand Point Naval Station,
which are not yet inhabitable, said Marianne Bichsel, a spokeswoman for the Mayor's Office."
It seems there is a concerted effort to keep these folks isolated. Some could say the refugees might like to be away from the limelight. I haven't
seen a bunch of limelight for most. ID card? Bank deposits that may or may not be usable? (How do you fill out the paperwork for your bank when your
bank is gone and your paperwork at home is flushed away?) Perhaps it does go too far to say this is some kind of planned extermination but it isn't
too far to speculate that the goal is to keep them off balance until they almost forget their treatment and the horrors of the government failure to
protect it's citizenry.
The emphasis in several reports that refugees will need psychological help sounds caring but, for me, has much more sinister implications. The
ability to control groups is to keep them as groups so they are all in the same boat. They can get away with giving everybody 2 MRE a day if that is
what everybody is getting. Hungry, scared, tired, dispare, bounced around from camp to detention/detainment, not able to get any solid bearings then
having the phsych come and tell you what you are probably feeling.......
MoveOn.org has over 200,000 offers of housing for victems. Last I could see only 17,000 had been placed.....I don't know why. I'm looking into
In the meantime Oregon has been told they won't get any refugees despite preparations of homes for 500 and assistance from churches.
My heart and head hurt....
Any thoughts? (not about my head)
