Screw the people, save the Barrier Islands!

I read in the paper today that our governor, Haley Barbour, has decided not to ask the legislature to set aside any more money to help the thousands of Katrina victims not back in their homes yet, but will ask the Feds for money to rebuild the barrier islands.  

Well, ok, we need the barrier islands to be a storm break.  I'll give 'em that.  And I guess it will be doubly important now that there will shortly be thousands of homeless families hitting the streets in the next few months when all the temporary housing is gone and we still can't move into our homes.  

Yeah, well, watch me.  I've already decided what I'm going to do.  I'm running some more wiring into my house from the temporary pole (unless FEMA decides they just HAVE to have it, and of course, it will never be reused, so this would just be more government tunnel vision and pure meanness on their part to take it).  I'm leaning drywall up against the walls and putting the area rugs I have on the floor.  Might even lay out some of the ceramic tile in the bathroom.  And I will camp out in the house and work online and continue trying to save my home.

It just boggles my mind that they can send billions to and spend billions on other countries and yet say they are done with the people in their own country.  Three years has been enough time to recover?  Hmmmm.  Our county offices are still in trailers and tents to this day.  The county jail is in a freakin TENT!  I'm not EVEN kidding.  Insurance claims are still being fought out in court.  When people think three years is enough, what part of the *worst/most expensive natural disaster to hit this country in recorded history* do they not understand? It's a 5 to 7 year recovery process in something this massive.

I think maybe one of the reasons I'm sooooo pissed about this latest from Gov. Barbour is the last thing I heard about him was a big front page spread of the Christmas decorations in the Governor's Mansion, which they decorated with seaside type decorations in *honor* of the Gulf Coast.  Don't make me gag.  They should have decorated the tree with little models of gutted homes and FEMA campers and Katrina cottages with March 1 eviction notices on the doors.  They should have made garland from the *Blue Roof* plastic and wood strips used to nail them down.  Maybe some fimo models of people sleeping in their driveways with bugs crawling on them.  Or waving goodbye to the temporary shelter they just lost.  

It really bothers me that this whole country isn't outraged at how the people on the Gulf Coast are being treated enough to be screaming at their elected officials.  Because when something bad happens to where you live, do you think it will be any better for you?  It's not that we expect handouts.  What we expected was equity, fairness, help instead of hindrance from our building departments and recognition that not every situation will fall into a nice neat little box of circumstances and that there be some assistance for those situations, too.  Has it really not occurred to anyone that if we lose our homes after losing everything in them that we will have absolutely nothing left and be unable to recover from that?  A hand up now precludes a handout later.  Leave us to rot now and we become public assistance recipients later.  Do we want that?  Of course not, or we would have already been that.

The punch line is that Mississippi spent MORE making sure nobody received one penny more than they *should have* than they released in grant funds.  The Feds spent God only knows how much paying people to make sure their Toxic Trailers weren't being damaged by a whole family crammed into 200 sq. ft. when they could have been putting that money into rebuilding homes.  They could have sent every family over $150,000 to rebuild with and had millions, billions left over.  Just a flat rate, this is what you get.  This state would have been better off with better homes built, faster recovery, more money left to put into damaged roads, ports, schools, etc.  And no one would have fallen through the cracks or been left behind in the dust of rebuilding.  I wouldn't be toxic, I'd be driving and working and my home would NOT be in foreclosure danger.  

But that would be productive and make sense, and we can't have THAT, now can we?

The Government Can!

The TRUTH About How Katrina Was Handled


Esoteric Agenda ~ Important information for those who took the red pill.

Ok, if you're a mainstream media news outlet addict who believes everything you see on TV and believes that your government (no matter what one it is) is there to serve and protect you, then you may close this out and return to the comfort of your ignorance. I would hate to offer up anything for your mental consumption that might put a jitter in your matrix feed. Go quickly, the other Sheeples are waiting for you so you can all laugh and point together. Enjoy your final moments of blissful commaradarie before all Hell breaks loose.

However, if you have an open mind and voraciously devour everything you can find about what is really going on in your world and has been for decades upon decades, then rev up your red pill and take a ride with me now.

This is the official final release of Ben Stewart's groundbreaking 2008 documentary exposing the plans of the parasitical Elite.

This video gives you a big picture of the agenda of the parasitical Elite, and solutions to ending their global control madness.

"The Daily life we perceive with our 5 senses is not reality.

Quantum physics has shown that space and time are illusions of perception therefore our bodies cannot truly be a reality if they occupy this space...

Our true Consciousness does not exist in our brains or in our bodies."

Milk ~ It Does A Body Bad

Got Milk? Well, you might want to get rid of it. Here's another piece of the Big Panoramic Picture Puzzle for you. A combination of corporate greed, factory farming and a government for sale to the highest bidder as well as an agenda that calls for drastically reducing the world population has perpetrated yet another Big Lie. This one is about what's in your glass of milk. This video ties in beautifully with the one in the earlier post below I titled: Horror on your dinner plate. I was all happy that my Lactaid doesn't use milk from cows given growth hormones. Being lactose intolerant, I didn't drink milk for years and now I'm damn glad about that. I just started again recently. I think I'll stop. Again. I was really diggin those Frosted Mini Wheats, too. Wonder what's in THAT that will kill me?

Horror on your dinner plate. Well, hopefully that will change after you see this.
