If only New Orleans had a higher population of upper class pretty thin
white girls, rather than poor overweight black ones, the people might have been
spared the hideous fate that Uncle Sam has dealt them.
Despite the spectacle of "officials" claiming to be on the job, the
vivid pictures showed thousands of stories that proved the depth of their lies:
A superheated Super Dome of stench, crammed with tens of thousands
of suffering black people without food, water, and toilets - left with only
the clothes on their backs and robbed of all their dignity, even in death.
Freeways crammed with dazed, wandering people & ragged, worn, baking
in the brutal sun with not a drop of water, morsel of food, or place to go &
not even a place to rest their soaking, aching baking bones. Infants, elderly,
the infirm - all of different ages, shapes and sizes, but their primary color
Flooded streets filled with sewage, toxic chemicals, disease and lost
slogging souls. Some aimlessly wandering in search of higher ground. Others
pushing grannies, grandpas, the sick and the crippled to safety in anything
that could float.
Hospitals short on drugs, no electricity, water, food, and left behind
to fend for themselves and deal with the dead and dying.
People, by the hundreds, dying in the streets and left there to rot.
Where was the mightiest military in the world that spends several hundred billions
of its people's money to shock and awe a foreign enemy but not a military dime
to air-drop or send in the Marines with food and water for hungry and destitute
A military that can penetrate opposing forces, surgically bomb and
repel barrages of artillery, pardoned for its absence by the Homeland Czar,
because of the difficulty to traverse flooded roads.
With water up to their rooftops, floating on doors and standing atop the last
piece of anything dry, the poor sweltered in the heat and suffered in fear,
wondering why no one is coming to the rescue. Despite the vivid enormity of
the disaster, the government deployed less than a dozen helicopters and 200
National Guardsmen to rescue hundreds of thousand of people.
Then, as the New Orleans levees began breaking, the "authorities"
could not find one spare chopper to drop the three ton sand bags into the breaches
despite promising for days, on camera, they were doing so.
"I don't want to alarm anyone that New Orleans is filling up like a bowl.
That isn't going to happen," said FEMAs director Michael Brown, as New
Orleans filled up like a bowl.
After the levees tore open, the governor, mayor and all the other officials,
who confuse their political position with brain power, wisdom and worth - and
spend precious camera time arrogantly dismissing all those who dare question
their lies, ineptness and lofty positions - once again told the people to evacuate.
But they directed their announcement to their TV audience and not to those who
needed to hear them. Left in the dark, with no electricity, telephones, radios,
or other communication devices, the people whose lives were at stake never heard
the news that in a few hours they would be drowning.
America, the country that brags, "We're Number One," kept its navy
beached, army barracked and air force grounded. No help was on the way. No troops
went street-to-street or house-to-house warning the citizens that "the
waters are coming."
None of the military's famous leaflet drops they readily perform to tell foreigners
to leave town before they bomb their country, were dropped on New Orleans' out-of-touch
residents telling them to leave.
Instead, the elected officials and appointed bureaucrats retreated
to dry land, and left the unknowing & young and old, sick and poor and all
others in between, with the ghastly fate of dying a slow water torture.
Thinking they were safe after the rain and winds had died down, and with no
reason to believe otherwise, as the waters drained from Lake Pontchartrain and
began to flood their streets, sidewalks, and first floors, the soon-to-be victims
fled upstairs. Trapped on top floors and attics, they were unable to climb any
No living human can retell in words or replicate in sounds the gruesome horror
of waiting to drown to death, or the screaming pain of watching loved ones suffer
and gasp their last gurgling breath.
There was no help coming. The many days of broadcast coverage proved it: CNN,
FOX, CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC: Miles O'Brien, Shepard Smith, Brian Williams, Anderson
Cooper, Martin Savidge, Jim Scarborough. One after another, they saw the truth,
spoke it, and the cameras recorded it.
Yet despite the hard facts and ugly truth, a parade of plastic government bureaucrats
and pathetic politicians continued their shameless public circle jerk &
an indecent spectacle of backslapping each other for the "incredible"
job they are doing. It took President Bush four days and relentless national
criticism to backtrack from his lavish praise and empty promises to admit, "the
results are not acceptable."
It is as clear as black and white. If Katrina had ravaged Boca Raton,
Palm Beach or South Beach & Homeland Security, FEMA, the Army, Navy and
Marines would have snapped into action in a military minute. This is "amateur
hour," said MSNBC's Scarborough when compared to the US government's "ruthless
efficiency" in the four hurricanes he covered in Florida.
With the water still rising in New Orleans, and chaos spreading, Greta, Rita,
Nancy and other media masters and mistresses still found time to pick up where
they left off before Katrina struck & reporting on the pretty white girl
who's still missing in Aruba & and has been since May.
