Same story, a little closer to home

This is complete bullshit. At first, the Katrina thing was a blessing in disguise. Most people including myself, received a little FEMA check and was able to purchase a used car because the one I had was on fire in a parking lot. It helped out when I needed it. We heard the stories of people going bankrupt and losing everything. It happened to some of my relatives but it never realy hit home. Well, now some people very close to me are about to be flushed down the drain after working their asses off for the last 40 years. Everything here seemed to be getting better, but it is finally starting to destroy the ones who had decided to hang on. The financial burdens of this shit hole have been quietly eating away at families until there is nothing left.

These particular people have been working hard to have what little they have for the last 40 years. The house is paid off, but it still sits with minor damamges that still need to be repaired. The job s they have are now turning in different directions in order to keep the busineeses afloat. At the young age of 60, these people have no options.
The kicker is that now when things could not get any worse, their home owners insurance is due next month. The 401ks and Mutual Funds and anything saved have all been long cashed in and spent. The $4,OOO due next month will bury them and there is nothing to do but sit and watch everything disappear.

The Feds failed, the State failed, and the douchebag in City Hall has failed. They say come back and rebuild your lives, yet they ignore those who stayed and waited to see how things would play out. The ones who stayed get no help. The Road Home is a joke, though these particular people had no claim to it anyway. The persomn who said “It’s a marathon, not a sprint” should be hung and chopped up into little pieces. This is a sprint morons. We need to get this shit fixed now, or everyone who isn’t a doctor or a lawyer, will be in the same boat.

Peace out Suckas

Hail Ming! The End

    The mayor decided that the people who weren’t living here were the priority. Those people elected him and he has stayed focused on them. Well, he’s been focused on them and stocking up his war chest, uh, and sucking on Hollywood’s collective cock. The only thing in this city of interest to Nagin is the Quarter because of tourist money. The only use for the people living in nola right now are to nickel and dime us to death with traffic tickets while we dodge bullets and wait for insurance rates to run us all out of town.

    Anyone living here who hasn’t resigned themselves to the fact that your fuct is just not paying attention.

    I would invite his administration to give me one example of anything he’s done; anything at all, that has netted even a single person returning to nola. And what is it he thinks is waiting for them here anyway? Personally, I’ve seen more people I know leave than come back in the last 6 weeks.

    I just listen to quiet music and wait for the end of my time here anymore.

    I feel for the situation of this family,your friends..and all others going through the same sort of situation.Where are the churchs? Can’t a collection be taken up at hotels with cans for donation’s,like when AIDS first came out and AIDS groups put cans and penny jars in bars and hotels for donation’s? Are there any support groups and can you help each other one at a time with donation’s,etc? These are just a few suggestions.I am here in San Francisco and I am afraid of an earthquake and an episode just like what you suffered through and are still experiencing there in New Orleans.In a related news article on the web today,it says that one barrier to the rebuilding of New Orleans is the fact there are so few functioning hospitals open,and that is a reason that tourist’s are still reluctant to travel there and also for homeowner’s to come back and rebuild.My heart still goes out to all of you suffering in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.We must bring our troops home from Iraq now and have them on the borders and down in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast to help rebuild homes and bring crime under control.
