    FEDs Move In to Take Control of .LA -Governor Left

    FEDs Move In to Take Control of .LA -Governor Left

    .W. is back in .LA to take control of the situation.

    The .LA Governor has left her State

    FEDs are attempting to deliver the message that
    people can not live in [or on] their private property.
    The FEDs may have to seize control and trade the
    people for like-kind property in other parts of
    the nation.

    .LA Telecommunications including Internet are still
    expected to be privately operated under the
    watchful eyes of the FEDs. The complete breakdown
    of command and control by the missing in action
    .LA government, certainly has the FED's attention.
    Many cities can learn what can happen when they
    do not plan and pay attention in advance.

    Looking ahead, people have to focus on living
    on 12 volts, off the power grid, with WIFI
    and WIMAX as the back-bone. People are returning
    to find out how they can fit into the NEW
    emerging New Orleans.

    You have terribly ordinary people in extraordinarily important jobs, facing extraordinary events. I spent days watching news feeds on my computer and listening to Fox, ironically. And even this station, which is to the right of Atilla the Hun, was appalled, even as the storm bore down (before it struck and as it struck) by the sheer unreality of the governor and mayor.

    I also have no doubt that racism was involved. I noted that this time, as in all racially encrusted events in this country, the power structure was actually relieved when they saw black looters. It gave them an excuse to do nothing so that all non blacks would see what animals blacks are.

    The hurrican did not fly into New Orleans at 400 miles an hour from left field. It moved on them at 10 miles an hour and days before it struck they were saying the city would be under water, so why the hell do they then do nothing for days after and why do they make the evacuation voluntary and under your own steam instead of evacuating the city before hand.

    I saw an interview of the governor with Bill O'Reilly during the storm and he asked her five times incredulously how long it would take New Orleans to recover and she said a few weeks, each time.

    Not because she is a liar but because she is just a little person in a big job.
