The Battle of New Orleans (Revised)
Jesse, where are you?
To my friends and family:
What I have seen since Katrina:
The poor and the wealthy hurt by the storm. Black, white,
Oriental and Indian all hurt by the storm.
Christian people giving, giving, giving.
Churches going all out to minister in Jesus' name.
Neighbors going door to door helping one another. Thugs and hoodlums
going door to door looking for someone vulnerable. Ice and water
being fought over as police tried to keep the peace. People coming
up from New Orleans taking over empty houses because shelters are
full. Out of town volunteers coming with food and staying for now
a week still serving it. The Churches all over this part of the country
doing what Christians do in a crisis. Fema doing a wonderful job
in getting help to us.The Red Cross doing a great job in the shelters.
The Salvation Army doing a great job in the community. Four hundred
crewman from everywhere bring back the power to our homes, churches
and businesses. Lines at service stations a block to a mile long.
National Guardsman patrolling the streets of Mccomb along with Kentucky
policemen protecting us from the hoodlums and thugs of McComb, Pike
County and New Orleans (the most dangerous city in the world before
Katrina.) Drug dealers working outside shelters. Doctors, nurses
and other hospital personnel working tirelessly, even sleeping in
the hospital to do the job God called them to do.
WHAT I HAVE NOT
The ACLU setting up a feeding line. People for the American
Way helping in the shelters. The NAACP doing anywork whatsoever.
The American Atheist organization serving meals in the shelters.
Jesse Jackson directing traffic at the gas stations.
I could go on but you get my message. Its the Christian people
with loveand compassion who do the work. The gripers in Congress
should come on down and get in line to pass the water and the ice.
Are you listening Hillary, Chuck, Teddy and all the sorry loafers
we call senators and congressmen. They don't have a clue as to what
this life is all about here on the Gulf Coast.
Boy, I feel better now.
What We Learned From Katrina
We had an incompetent mayor, Mayor
A**h***, who let a fleet of buses get ruined by a flood when he could
have used them to help evacuate the city.
We saw that Nawlins was essentially a third
world city filled with corruption and incompetence. And when we
saw "the poor" degenerating
into animals we got a glimpse of what liberal social policies have
created. Guess what? There is a third world enclave in every large
city. Imagine a disaster in Detroit or Philadelphia.
We got to see an incompetent governor, Governor Useless, who didn't
have a clue as to what to do.
We got to see Senator TKO threaten
to punch out the president for pointing out the obvious, that Mayor
A**h*** and Governor Useless were incompetent political hacks.
Of course everything was Bush's
fault. He created the hurricane because he wouldn't sign the Kyoto
Treaty. What he should of done was pull a Clinton and sign it and
send it to the Senate. When Clinton did that, the Senate voted against
it 98 to 0.
According to Calypso Louie, Bush
was responsible for the levee breaking. He actually bleew it up so
it would flood Nawlins killing a lot of black people.
Turns out the thousands of dead
and dead people floating in the streets Mayor A**h*** talked about
didn't materialize. The death toll from Nawlins is around 700. Sure,
that's too many but look what hit Nawlins and how incompetent the
state and city official were.
Do y'all know why the levee wasn't built to withstand a category
5 hurricane? Read on.
Here is the ultimate irony. Algore had to cancel
a speech he was gonna give
in Nawlins "where he planned to
blame global warming for the hurricane season." Instead he gave
a speech to the Sierrra Club in San Francisco.
So where did Al choose to deliver
this critical compendium of misjudgments, hyperbole, and error?
In San Francisco, of course, where on September 9 he said, "The warnings about global warming
have been extremely clear for a long time. We are facing a global
climate crisis. It is deepening. We are entering a period of consequences." And
he urged that "the leaders of our country be held accountable" for
the flooding of New Orleans. Unfortunately he was addressing the
Sierra Club, which was not the best place to bring up the flooding
of New Orleans.
Why is that?
The very day he spoke a congressional
task force reported that the levees that failed in New Orleans
would have been raised higher and strengthened in 1996 by the Army
Corps of Engineers were it not for a lawsuit filed by environmentalists
led by who else but the Sierra Club. Among those "leaders of our country" to "be held
accountable" for the flooding of New Orleans, would Al include the
Sierra Club? How about the Save the Wetlands stalwarts? According
to a recent report in the Los Angeles Times, a 1977 lawsuit filed
by Save the Wetlands stopped a congressionally funded plan to protect
New Orleans with a "massive hurricane barrier." A judge found that
New Orleans' hurricane barrier would have to wait until the Army
Corps of Engineers filed a better environmental-impact statement.
Yep. It's them pesky environmentalists
again. Do what Clancy did in Rainbow 6. Drop 'em in the Brazilian
rain forest to let them commune with nature. Bunch of jerks.
Katrina also showed the good side of America. People from other
states are taking in refugees. Families in Atlanta have opened their
homes. The racist Americans who hate black people have raised over
$600 million to help the refugees who are mostly black. Just like
the tsunami where we racist Americans raised around $500 million
to help those people affected. Most of them were not white.

Speaking of Jesse Jackson:
Have you heard about his new staff member?
Jessie Jackson has added former Chicago
Democrat Congressman Mel Reynolds to Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's
payroll. Reynolds was among the 176 criminals excused in President
Clinton's last-minute forgiveness spree. Reynolds received a
commutation of his six-and-a-half-year
federal sentence for 15 convictions of
wire fraud, bank fraud and lies to the Federal Election Commission.
He is more notorious, however, for
concurrently serving five years for sleeping with an
underage campaign volunteer.
This is a first in American politics:
An ex-congressman who had sex with a subordinate... won
clemency from a president who had sex with a subordinate...
then was hired by a clergyman who had sex with a subordinate.
His new job?
Ready for this??
IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT?

Moral poverty cost blacks
in New Orleans
WorldNetDaily.com - September 21, 2005
Say a hurricane is about to destroy the city you live in. Two questions:
- What would you do?
- What would you do if you were black?
Sadly, the two questions don't have the same answer.
To the first: Most of us would take our families out of that city
quickly to protect them from danger. Then, able-bodied men would
return to help others in need, as wives and others cared for children,
elderly, infirm and the like.
For better or worse, Hurricane Katrina has told us the answer to
the second question. If you're black and a hurricane is about to
destroy your city, then you'll probably wait for the government to
This was not always the case. Prior to 40 years ago, such a pathetic
performance by the black community in a time of crisis would have
been inconceivable. The first response would have come from black
men. They would take care of their families, bring them to safety,
and then help the rest of the community. Then local government
would come in.
No longer. When 75 percent of New Orleans residents had left the
city, it was primarily immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed
behind and waited for the government to bail them out. This, as we
know, did not turn out good results.
Enter Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan. Jackson and Farrakhan laid
blame on "racist" President Bush. Farrakhan actually proposed the
idea that the government blew up a levee so as to kill blacks and
save whites. The two demanded massive governmental spending to rebuild
New Orleans, above and beyond the federal government's proposed $60
billion. Not only that, these two were positioning themselves as
the gatekeepers to supervise the dispersion of funds. Perfect: Two
of the most dishonest elite blacks in America, "overseeing" billions
of dollars. I wonder where that money will end up.
Of course, if these two were really serious about laying blame on
government, they should blame the local one. Responsibility to perform – legally
and practically – fell first on the mayor of New Orleans. We
are now all familiar with Mayor Ray Nagin – the black Democrat
who likes to yell at President Bush for failing to do Nagin's job.
The facts, unfortunately, do not support Nagin's wailing. As the
Washington Times puts it, "recent reports show [Nagin] failed to
follow through on his own city's emergency-response plan, which acknowledged
that thousands of the city's poorest residents would have no way
to evacuate the city."
One wonders how there was "no way" for these people to evacuate
the city. We have photographic evidence telling us otherwise. You've
probably seen it by now – the photo showing 200 parked school
buses, unused and underwater. How much planning does it require to
put people on a bus and leave town, Mayor Nagin?
Instead of doing the obvious, Mayor Nagin (with no positive contribution
from Democratic Gov. Kathleen Blanco, the other major leader vested
with responsibility to address the hurricane disaster) loaded remaining
New Orleans residents into the Superdome and the city's convention
center. We know how that plan turned out.
About five years ago, in a debate before the National Association
of Black Journalists, I stated that if whites were to just leave
the United States and let blacks run the country, they would turn
America into a ghetto within 10 years. The audience, shall we say,
disagreed with me strongly. Now I have to disagree with me. I gave
blacks too much credit. It took a mere three days for blacks to turn
the Superdome and the convention center into ghettos, rampant with
theft, rape and murder.
President Bush is not to blame for the rampant immorality of blacks.
Had New Orleans' black community taken action, most would have been
out of harm's way. But most were too lazy, immoral and trifling to
do anything productive for themselves.
All Americans must tell blacks this truth. It was blacks' moral
poverty – not their material poverty – that cost them
dearly in New Orleans. Farrakhan, Jackson, and other race hustlers
are to be repudiated – they will only perpetuate this problem
by stirring up hatred and applauding moral corruption. New Orleans,
to the extent it is to be rebuilt, should be remade into a dependency-free,
morally strong city where corruption is opposed and success is applauded.
Blacks are obligated to help themselves and not depend on the government
to care for them. We are all obligated to tell them so.
