    The Wide Awakes

    This is going to be a post of extreme thinking. Many of you will not like what I have to say here today, but you know what?

    I Don't Care!!!

    After reading this, about doctors killing critically ill people rather than be burdened by them as they fled not only Katrina but their Hippocratic Oath and there professional integrity, I am angry. This is part of the Hippocratic Oath;

    To keep the good of the patient as the highest priority.


    Along with reading about this horror which tells of 45 patients abandoned in a hospital that have been found dead, I have had it. Were they dead when their caregivers left? We don't know yet. I would wager that these two stories are one and the same........

    There are, of course, people that are eager to get "home" and start rebuilding.

    And they should. New Orleans is a vibrant city with a rich history and one of the best parties in all of the U.S.

    But here's the thing.

    To all of you that still think it is Bush's "fault" that FEMA didn't get there for three days (a record for FEMA I believe), and refuse to put the blame where it belongs I will set you straight.

    This was NOT the fault of Bush.

    This was the result of many years of Democratic rule (corrupt rule at that) and a welfare mentality of most of the people that stayed behind. Not the rule of a democracy (little "d"), but the rule of the "Democrats", (big "D"), and the corruption in New Orleans itself.

    The first thing they need to do is get rid of that mayor and get a staunch Conservative in there that isn't corrupt and is friendly to business...someone that wouldn't buckle under the strain of doing what needs to be done.

    I would wager that, just like the "police officers" shown looting in Wal Mart, the "caregivers" that left those people in that hospital were "po' folk" that "made good" and "moved up in the world" and really didn't care about the job or responsibility they held. Just a side note regarding those "cops" we saw looting. Fire them, charge them, try them and convict them.

    New Orleans had almost 500,000 residents, of which a reported 9% did not have a car!!!

    That leaves us with about 45,000 people without a car.

    Isn't that about how many were in the Superdome during the storm?

    Gen. Hunt Downer of the National Guard estimated 25,000 to 35,000 refugees were in the dome, though arena official Doug Thornton said it was closer to 9,000 in the stands, with more on the floor.


    (another side note, if the National Guard weren't in New Orleans until well after the hurricane hit, then how did the above quote come about? ESP?)

    Uhhuh...that's what I thought.

    How many people in the Superdome do you think were there because they didn't have a car?

    How many poor people don't have a car?

    Now for the part that is going to piss off a lot of people.

    New Orleans should be rebuilt and the poor should NOT be allowed back in.

    Gate the damned thing. Keep 'em out. Don't let 'em live there. Don't build low-income housing. Make it smaller and build the levees higher. Cap how much can be built there to try to slow the sinking.

    Yes, New Orleans is sinking. About three feet a century. I suppose that is Bush's fault too, huh?

    Poor people live in other area's that are prone to disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes and tornado's, and you don't see them "lootin' 'n' shootin'".

    It is NOT as if these people HAD to steal vanloads of electronic equipment and new shoes or shoot at the very people trying to help them....they WANTED to steal them and they wanted to shoot at the very people coming to give them aid.

    I can't think of one good reason to shoot at someone that is coming in to help you after a natural disaster, but someone in New Orleans sure thought of one.....several someone's in fact.

    This is not the third world.

    This is The United States of America.

    To see the actions of these people in (presumably) their darkest hour act like uneducated masses of starving people in some third world country instead of doing what AMERICANS do in time of trouble such as this is beyond belief and inexcusable.

    Instead of the standard response of your typical American citizen, which is to band together and help each other out, these people acted as if they were in the streets of Mogadishu.

    This is the result one can expect from the "cradle to the grave" programs that have spewed from the Democratic Party for the last 35+ years.

    As far as I am concerned if you can't pay the fare, you shouldn't get to ride, and people that live in "the system" should not get a free pass to act like they did in NO after Katrina.

    If you can't afford the price to live in the new and improved New Orleans keep out.

    These people have lost the Right to live in New Orleans, and I say, rebuild it and keep the 'em out.
