FEMA, so, so, infuriatingly sad. (WM video) "Let me give you just three quick examples. We had Wal-Mart deliver three trucks of water, trailer trucks of water. FEMA turned them back. ...FEMA--we had 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel on a Coast Guard vessel docked in my parish. The Coast Guard said, "Come get the fuel right away." When we got there with our trucks, they got a word. "FEMA says don't give you the fuel." Yesterday--yesterday--FEMA comes in and cuts all of our emergency communication lines. They cut them without notice. Our sheriff, Harry Lee, goes back in, he reconnects the line. He posts armed guards on our line and says, "No one is getting near these lines." Sheriff Harry Lee said that if America--American government would have responded like Wal-Mart has responded, we wouldn't be in this crisis". Testimony from Aaron Broussard president of Jefferson Parish in New Orleans. At the end of the clip, he tells another story that just breaks the heart. There's just nothing else to say.

"It's going to look like Little Somalia" I really didn't want to add to the noise, but this just has to be read and comprehended by as many people as possible: The United States Army is preparing to stage combat operations against "the insurgency" in New Orleans. You know, the citizens who were abandoned by their government to drown, burn, starve, murder one another or otherwise shrivel up and die of some other disaster-related cause.
