First FEMA does not come through with the trailers now they kick the evacuees onto the streets,now that is what I call good conservative government. I saw reports last week on CNN where they had the trailers but would not deliver them? To much paper work I guess?

    hello enigma4ever,well I have been following this for a while and the best I can make of it is,the trailers are not being delivered. Last week they interviewed a elected official of one of the parishes and he told AC that FEMA was accusing him of not letting them bring the trailers there,quote unquote a city ordinance. Anyway he told AC point blank FEMA was lying about this,he said they needed the trailers immeadiately and yes there was so many billion appropreated for this,or was supposed to be. This official told AC they could get the trailers elsewhere and save the government so many thousand dollars per trailer,verses the FEMA trailers,anyway being dumb as the higher-ups are they just set around. The trailers get this are parked.but FEMA will not deliver them,this was stated by the official to AC. I think they needed 65,000 and got 4,000,but the point is they have thousands just sitting around and FEMA is pointing fingers at the local government,and so far they have not delivered them yet. Something just as stupid is this,a lot including AC have said everyone on every level is to blame. This is an idiotic statement and they expect America to believe this,the local level government can in no way compete with the reserve of the Federal government. That is in affect saying that New Orleans,has resources to match the United States,that is breaking it down to being an idiotic statement. If you drive through New Orleans it is devestated,damage everywhere and the Fed,,,with the help of the media just keeps passing the buck.

  1. Thanks for filling in some of the holes- you gave a better summary than CNN and MSNBC combined...I posted alot on Katrina in Sept and Oct. and some followup later like ( Lost Souls and the Souiless in Power- it is actually a post on Ethel Freeman -she was the woman that died by the Convention Center- she has quite a story....and also I have a post Mama Dee left them Godsmacked...I think that was November or December- but you would appreciate...)What is killing me is that these are REAL people- lives destroyed...and Bush just flys over- but ALL of them do- the rest of the House and the Senate could have stood up for these people- they are US, WE THE PEOPLE....

    okay I am done soapboxing and ranting....I wanted to let you know that I am adding you to my blogroll and I don't comment here always- but I lurk often thanks for the great blogging...
