    Hypocrite much?
    so, your plan is to load fleeing residents on a bus and take them to nowhere
    just out of the city
    i hope you don't actually exercise such illogic in things that are important

    you have jindal who is afraid - admittedly, a very republican trait - to do what he thinks needs to be done
    but instead of doing that, he says he is willing to go to jail for doing the very thing he is so afraid to do

    glad he's your kind of guy. continue to support that kind of politician so that one day my grandkids will ask me "what was a republican?"

    It sure beats your "it's too hard to figger out what to do, you'll just have stay and suffer" plan.

    After all, we should be more concerned about imposing on other communities in a time of crisis than the actual welfare of our citizens.

    I love the line that every time you have the government wanting to help people, just insert screw and you've got an accurate read of what will occur.



    One good Rev. needs to be backed up by another.
    Heres how TRULY pathetic that situation was...since the residents were completely abandoned by the city leadership there was no one to say...wait...hold up...WTF...We are IN New Orleans. YOu, you and you...go to the hotels and sieze me 15 big ass sauce pots. You you and you...get those propane stoves at the superdome cranked up and lets get to boiling and sterilizing water. You 6...you go to the hotels and restaraunts and seize every bit of rice and seasoning you can find. You 10 folks...round me up all the meat and fresh veggies you can get your hand on. You...big mama...you get 15 of your friends and kick ass in that kitchen and you let ME know if anyone gets in your way.

    Instead everyone wallered around like helpless infants.

    Oh...but there were some disaster prep pamphlets sitting in cases somewhere...

    You know what we call them? Firewood.

    it's not a matter of imposition on other communities. there was no destination
    or where you and all of your friends going to put them up and feed and care for them until the hurricane damage had subsided
    should have spoken up sooner - and louder

    Meh, I'm not looking to the federalis for my hurricane evacuation plans. As one who has a house in long beach island. If I need evacuation assistance, I look to the local gov for guidance (if I needed it).


    Nolo had a plan, with buses, and now as others have shown you, had destinations.... The Failure as usual is all yours.




    you have jindal who is afraid - admittedly, a very republican trait - to do what he thinks needs to be done


    Funny, do you think you sound intelligent when you partisan hack make idiotic bloviations like this?



    but instead of doing that, he says he is willing to go to jail for doing the very thing he is so afraid to do

    What, so he should circumvent federal law? I think threatening first is appropriate.



    glad he's your kind of guy. continue to support that kind of politician so that one day my grandkids will ask me to tell them what a republican was


    in a wold full of your political ilk... (psycho hack liberal). I'd feel sorry for your grandkids.

    Re: BP Oil Spill: Gov. Jindal Asks for Permission to Build Barrier Islands

    A few things. OP, you didn't post a link so I did a google search with a few of the key phrases your quoted and found the article:

    BP Oil Spill: Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal Asks for More Help - ABC News


    I do agree with this:
    On ABC's "This Week" Sunday, Democratic operative Donna Brazile said, "One of the problems I have with the administration is that they're not tough enough."
    Yes, they have been complete whimps. They are relying on BP to clean it up, and trusting them too much to do the job, IMO. On a monitary scale, how does this work, though? If the government intervenes, does this mean taxpayers will have to foot the bill?

    I also found the following interesting. What Bobby suggests doing will not help one iota in the immediate future:

    He also responded to Jindal's complaints, saying that boom is being distributed according to continency plans that each Gulf Coast state signed. The governor's plan for new barrier islands are being evaluated, he said, but after approval they could take up to nine months to construct.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Riiight. Bobby Jindal HAS a plan but resists it because of federal gov limitations and that makes him a weenie. But in YOUR eyes...Obama and his adminsitration sit on their thumbs and wiggle and THATS the 'right' thing to do.

    and I laughed and laughed and laughed...

    well by the way its all going, that oil will be around a lot longer than "9 months" and if you read around. the fire booms are still in short supply, with the fedgov snarking at jindal over them...


    Its a sad disasterous situation, regardless of political lean.

    WHo gives a ****...isnt that a question you answer AFTER you stop the leak and the spread? This has been going on for THIRTY SIX DAYS. And you think it MATTERS who is going to foot the bill? Step one...DAY one...stop the leak. Step two...seize BPs assets and sue the hell out of em...but first STOP THE OIL from spewing and spreading.

    Re: BP Oil Spill: Gov. Jindal Asks for Permission to Build Barrier Islands

    As a former resident of New Orleans, we ALWAYS had a hurricane plan and we used it many, many times when we evacuated of our own free will !! Nobody ever told us to leave, we just did. There are several routes out of the city, plenty of destinations, PICK ONE !!! If you choose to wait until someone tells you to leave, you're going to sit on the interstate for 14 hours like my brother did with Katrina.

    People shouldn't wait for any government to tell them to do anything. Take that on yourself and do what you can to help others. I have a lot more faith in the human race than any government but then, I'm an optimist
