Over 35 years ago the federal gov’t has had the results of studies done that irrefutably prove global warming, caused predominantly by pollution from un-renewable fuels being over used, and corollary sources of pollution, that destroy the flora and fauna, coral reefs, wetlands, ancient forests, et al, would eventually cause the extinction of humanity and large mammals, as well as, cause the increase in: severity and frequency of most, if not all of what used to be able to be called ‘natural’ disasters; which includes almost all of what destroys from nature (volcanoes, hurricanes, tropical storms, earthquakes, mud slides, floods, lightening storms, tornados, forest fires, tsunamis, tidal waves, etc., also, new and old diseases made more frequent and potent, as well as more immune to our cures, by increased pestilence and insects from warmer weather, more humidity, and more flooding, etc.). Yet, the remocrat conspiracies’ leadership, due to their uber-greed, predominantly, have, almost farcically, denied all of the last 4 decades of science on this. Needless to say, while the dempublicans, even when in the Whitehouse, have, for almost 2 decades, acknowledged the science and global warming, and have addressed it to varying degrees at varying times, they’ve not done a fraction of what is necessary; and the remocrats undo, or at least thwart, whatever progress the dempublicans do realize, when it’s ‘their turn’ to be in the Whitehouse, control Congress, Statehouses, etc.. So too, the dempublicans have profited from the remocrats being in almost total ‘denial’ about global warming and its immediacy, seriousness, etc.; although, only exponentially more; whereas, the remocrats have determined astronomically more delusional profits from their determining astronomically larger usage of fossil fuels, increases in pollution, lessening environmental protections, gov’t standards, etc.. Yet, we mustn’t forget that the leadership of any organized crime conspiracy always gets paid more than the hit-men, enforcers, etc., who work for them, collaborate with them; to facilitate the processes of their crime; so, the dempublicans responsibility can’t be underestimated (while the remocrats responsibility for organized crime, which is euphemistically called politics, can’t be overestimated).
So, in fact, millions upon millions of people have been premeditatedly mass: destroyed and murdered by those processes to secure those supposed profits for the remocrats, predominantly. Still, the commonsense understanding behind the above logic has eluded the average American, through the remocrat control of the multi-media conspiracy, predominantly, and its continual stream of lies, or obfuscations, at least. Yet, now that Americans will die by the 10,000’s from these man-made unnatural results of the US permanently altering the weather cycles with pollution, like they die in other countries, the possibility exists that an average American might want to get more clear on the reality, and stop thinking they’re able to abdicate their responsibility, when they choose to abdicate their power by giving it to the supposed leadership of this country; only because they can now discern their impending death, or at least the increased possibility of it, on the horizon; racing towards them from the future. So, one might think that would provide a ray of hope, although, in the case of Katrina, it tragically doesn’t seem so. Instead uber obfuscation, confusion, dis and mis-information is being used, mostly by the remocrats, yet, also by the dempublicans, they project will be able to keep Americans in the dark, and following their leaders; like the sheep they’ve been programmed to be. Proof, the continual lies: the emperor and numerous others, including the homeland security czar, were and are saying, like that the breeches in the levees protecting New Orleans, for example, "were a surprise", and similar such nonsense: when, for decades it’s been scientifically known and well communicated fact that those levees were built in the 60’s with their expectations of the needs for protection that they foresaw back then- not accounting for the effects of global warming, depletion the ozone layer- that (un)natural disasters would be more frequent and severe, etc.. Yet, even so, those structures were understood, even then, to only be able to possibly handle a hurricane of level 2, or possibly 3. Also, for decades New Orleans and the federal gov’t have had varying plans at varying times to reinforce those levees, because they knew they wouldn’t hold, they just didn’t know exactly when they would break. Other examples, Scientific American , in 1988, did a study of the situation, coming up with those findings, as well as others such as the fact that the Wetlands partially protecting New Orleans from flooding and land mass loss, needed to be rebuilt, that evacuation plans would probably fail, resulting in a great deal of loss of life and property, etc.; and numerous articles and studies since then confirmed the increasing rate of land mass loss to water, the decreasing amount of wetland protection, the increasing needs for remedies, reinforcement of the levees and evacuation plans, etc.. Yet, they purposely didn’t spend the 1 billion over the last 30 years to reinforce the levees, costing us an eventual total of a half a trill to remedy; they purposely didn’t evacuate some of the middle-class, and most of the poor for 2 reasons: first, to provide a convincing cover story to divert attention from their theft, with the tragic human loss and plausible deniability as its "perfect" cover (police caught looting, stealing cars, etc.); second, to rid the city of most of the poor, addicted, alcoholic, gang members, criminals, prisoners, physically impaired, disabled, handicapped, elderly, ill, kids, etc., by either drowning, poor evacuation, or rounding them up with the astronomically increased police and military presences; they purposely didn’t do enumerable other things they should have done like: FEMA (headed up by an incapable friend of the emperor’s) and National Guard coming in much sooner (planned to allow supposed looting and crime to take hold, eerily similar to what they did also in Iraq, or actually didn’t do; also supplying a cover for the theft by police), nursing homes and hospitals evacuated, people fleeing New Orleans not being allowed to leave over a bridge to (white) Gretna City, not even allowed to pass through it; etc.- in order to increase the plausibility of what they project are the reasons for all these "tragedies" taking place: lack of: expectation, readiness, communications between gov’t agencies and bureaucracies, etc., and ability to execute plans they did acknowledge existed- eerily, similar to the supposed reasons given for the fact that 19 foreign guys with $ 500,000., supposedly couldn’t be stopped from costing us trillions and killing 3000 during the 9-11 attacks and their aftermath (even though almost everybody knew about it and had evidence on them, for almost a decade in advance). I’ve watched enough detective movies to know, if you want to catch a thief, you "follow the $ trail", are you able to do that as I am, are you going to stand by while they murder millions of Americans and purport they: just couldn’t be prepared for disasters they’ve earned billions to be prepared for, for decades; they just had to loss the Iraq war they just had to jump into before they were prepared to fight it, they just couldn’t plan well enough to avert their purposeful Increasing militancy of the population, in order to justify a 3 state, sectarian, solution, giving the US a base for their future blitzkriegs, they’ll just have to fight because of their purposeful failures in this war determined astronomically more extremist Muslims and exponentially more hot spots that will supposedly necessitate those future "wars"; when they just couldn’t prevent another "terrorist attack", because they didn’t have the exact time, location, and a signed video taped confession in advance and didn’t know "planes could fly into buildings" (Condolezza Rice); supposedly, etc.? Trillions paid to predominantly republicans to protect and defend this country, they already got, and trillions they plan on stealing by premeditatedly not doing their jobs, I say, tell them you aren’t going to take it anymore, they have to be accountable and responsible, or there has to be new mechanisms by which they can be readily fired; continually, if necessary! Another example, the Governor was trying to surpass Hillary in the amount of wisdom filled platitudes she compassionately pours out during press conferences, in her latest, to try and bury "the blame game", she actually stated: "water don’t know…"; it actually could be a comic skit by Chris Rock: "water don’t know if your rich, white, blessed, and flying at 30,000 feet to an inconvenient, yet, welcome impromptu vacation in Honolulu because of Katrina, water don’t know if you’re one of the obviously God damned poor, black or a mixed persons, who were purposely not evacuated, and drowned like rats"; well, contrary to her update of the old southern adage: "what the river takes is the river’s" (where they throw people in it to let "God decide" if they live or die), to "water don’t know…", I suggest water does know, it knows full well whose been abandoned to it, and it takes them; won’t you speak for the murdered, so their murderers lies won’t drown their silent, yet salient, shouts, out! I say, impeach the lot of them, and then let "God sort it out", all kidding aside, what do you say; let us hear it?
I also say, yes, to compensation to those that they premeditatedly mass-murdered, their families, and those whose lives, homes, livelihoods were destroyed, yet, no to national rebuilding of the city, they can shrink it to a size that will work for their newly shrunken state; no more than necessary. No billions to those who murder for greed, this is a minimum; they should actually be prosecuted! This is also a prime example of their purposely not spending the 1 billion it might have cost to reinforce the levees and save the city, thinking that a "profit kept" (contrary to "a stitch in time saves 9"), when it was only a delusional profit, for, because they didn’t spend that 1 billion (of mostly state and municipal funds), there was 200 billion in real deficits they caused, in losses, and approx. 6,000 lives lost; and they want us to pay- no! We need to fully handle the humanitarian needs, compensate the people for the crimes against them and their loved ones; they’ll need new locations, with housing, jobs, etc., we need to totally take away the health risks, do a thorough clean up, restore power and services, etc.; yet, they should be responsible for rebuilding; although, fixing the levees and re-establishing the wetlands could be done by the US gov’t better. The $ they would want us to spend on rebuilding we should use to reinforce levees, etc., in other cities, like Miami, that haven’t premeditatedly murdered 6,000 of their citizens, yet, so, they may not do it in the future. It’s time to stop throwing billions of good dollars after bad! No more trillions for unnecessary wars, unnecessary rebuilding due to cities purposely not reinforcing their levees! This is part of the remocrat conspiracies’ larger plan of continually increasing extinction of humanity, thereby, doing away with the potency of elections and voting, public opinion and people’s movements, unions, etc., while their leadership get astronomically richer; the terrible twins are looking like 1 party more and more each day, I say, the party is over, stop stealing trillions of taxpayer dollars; allow us to heal our education systems, provide nutrition for pregnant women, daycare for working mothers, an overdue increase in the minimum wage, etc.! In my opine, Mississippi is probably an entirely different story, even though they took more of the brunt of the storm, they seem to have taken better care of the people, with the death toll only reaching about 200 so far; so, they deserve federal relief for rebuilding because we can count on them not to supposedly ‘allow’ the death of up to 6,000, etc..
I also say: the federal response to Hurricane Katrina is a national scandal; our nation was better prepared and responded better after September 11th; 4 years after September 11th, it is clear the Bush administration has made us less safe, less prepared, and less capable of emergency responses; we need an independent commission modeled on the 9/11 Commission to investigate what went wrong at FEMA and other agencies; congress should support Senator Clinton’s legislation calling for an independent commission modeled after the 9/11 Commission; we can’t let one political party, especially the one running the government, control the investigation of the federal response to Hurricane Katrina; the investigation must be independent from the politicians and have its own investigators, budget and subpoena authority; national third party leaders should be invited to be part of it- like Ralph Nader; the media should be cajoled into doing a far better and more responsible job; etc.. As well, many months after Katrina, LA Senator Landrieu stated, "she was going to Netherlands to have a look see at their levees", this is scandalous. I stated a week after Katrina that the levees being rebuilt had to be the top priority, after humanitarian concerns, in order to get them rebuilt in time for the next year’s hurricane season (which will, in all likelihood, be worse, as global warming is warming the waters that fuel the strength, and thereby, increase the frequency of tropical storms; turning them into hurricanes), yet, she stated, "they didn’t even know what kind of levee they wanted to build", etc.. This is another example of the cart being put before the horse, ass backwards planning and work of the remocrat conspiracy. First, maybe the Senator doesn’t know this, but, there are all kinds of photos, plans, schematics, mechanical drawings, specifications of the levees in the Netherlands that can be sent via electronic communications, most of which are probably available online, she doesn’t need a taxpayer paid vacation to Netherlands to "see" their levees; as well, what on earth good would her seeing them do, is she a structural engineer with decades of levee constructing experience, or something; it’s preposterous. Second, we’re 6 months from the next hurricane season and the politicians who conspired to premeditatedly mass-destroy/murder some of MS and a large part of LA, and 6000 Americans, by, at minimum, not doing their jobs, haven’t even decided what kind of levee they are going to construct; this is gov’t organized crime- I say impeach them all, or at least vote them out! Then Mayor Nagin, like he and our country have nothing better to do, makes these subjective and curiously banal pronouncements every 2 weeks, to keep his mug on the boobtube, for, according to entertainers and politicians, there’s no such thing as bad free press; for, he’s running for re-election in April. Heah, good luck with that Nagin Reagan- although, hopefully, even if you’re elected, it won’t keep you out of jail. As well, hopefully, if and when you’re in your cell and another Katrina (only the side hit N.O., approx. level 2 hurricane) comes along, your correctional officers won’t abandon you in your locked cell to drown; like your correctional officers did to many prisoners during Katrina. For, your statements soon after Katrina, that "you wanted to hear Jazz in the air soon", and your stating that there "will be a Mardi Gras, the party must go on", and your recent "God’s wants New Orleans to be a chocolate city", while indicating you’re not in touch with reality, do have a certain devil may care attitude I find refreshing; when it comes from entertainers. Although, hopefully, your constituents will realize, if they want there to ever again be a New Orleans, the party is over, and they will allow you more time to party, and vote for a real politician to be Mayor, instead.
Still, "la machine", the corporate structure, and their ever increasing and increasingly interlocking systems of premeditated mass-destruction-murdering programs are all just linx in the chains on humanity, attempting to stop us from breaking free, we can break the chain of murder, the chain of death; by abolishing the over use of fossil fuels and being most alive! That’s also why I think allowing evolution as a common language, as it’s the thread that links every, in the fabric of life, is a good place to start. For, the corporate structure has made a trap of this world, yet, all life is in it, so "we…" can’t underestimate our responsibility; that generations past have heaped on our heads and shoulders by not acting on theirs, then. Dylan Thomas’ poem’s line comes to mind 🙂 "…and death (murder) shall have no dominion…", as others might say, "we, the people…" can make it so! Will you? By the by, "In Germany they [the Nazis] came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up. – Pastor Martin Niemoeller, 1946", so the story goes, though, you might know that they actually came first for the mentally ill, elderly, handicapped, diffabled, foreigners, poor (Gypsies, et al); homeless, like the republicans are doing now. Defend yourself by defending them, one for all, all for one! Remember the lessons of WWII, if you’re not taking bullets, you’re making them, etc.; I’m bleeding every moment, are you?
