im facing something of a dilema
for volunteers such as myself
then comes the harder part
so i feel torn
nobody asked me go down there
for that i take full responsibility
they gave us paper masks and said it was fine
part of me wants to file
i didnt ask to be compensated then
so im torn

Did you happen to watch Spike Lee’s?
Well I just ran into my next door neighbor Mike the photographer
he then demanded i tune in.. to lee
so last night I watched the second half of Spike Lee’s flick
“Where is FEMA?”
“Where is George Bush?”
I couldn’t help trying to do some internal math when the question slipped out of my subconscious and into my frontal lobe…”WOULD THE MONEY WE ARE SPENDING TO REBUILD IRAQ, BE ENOUGH TO REBUILD NEW ORLEANS?
The other pesky question is
Someone has to step in and re-write the rules of the insurance industry.
But what about now?
Why the hell are these people still pitching tents in the rubble of their former homes?
Now that the people are displaced, the economy ruined, so much of the population of new Orleans perhaps never to return, now the land grabbers and money men step in, to buy up the land, to re-do this city in the size and shape of something maybe a whole lot whiter, maybe a whole lot richer.. who knows…
One things for sure
One can only hope that the new city will retain much of its former glory and spirit
0n a personal note
You know I’ve been to New Orleans
I know there’s a tendency to think that those crime ridden poverty stricken, broken hoods are better off being re-built…but you know even the worst of neighborhoods held peoples lives, their legacies, their heritage, their culture, their blood.. I sure did want to see those hoods get some help and some clean up, but not to be quite literally washed away..
It also pissed me the hell off when I learned that this country has been leaching off Louisiana for years and years for oil that makes up a huge ass portion of what we use and we give them nada, nyet, for this.. shit honeys at least give those folks a fee, let that fee rebuild lives and homes and hearts..
One thing I did see
Maybe we’ll never know if racism had a part in the late, late, late show of aid to Katrina victims
Maybe we’ll never know if the finger should point to federal, state or local or D all of the above..
But what we do know is this is a huge pile of shit

Ding dong the witch is dead
Here’s the blurb in case you missed it, though I doubt that you did..
**Noting "there are no hereditary Kings in America and no powers not created by the Constitution," a federal judge ruled Thursday that President Bush had exceeded his authority when he allowed the National Security Agency to eavesdrop on Americans without a warrant.**
I know I have some readers who feel the Bushie should be allowed to spy on us at whim to save our lives..from the terrorists out there…but I say once, you start to erode the Constitution to protect its people, you start to create exactly what we’re fighting against.. loss of freedom…dicatatorship…the whole shebang..
Well I guess the court felt the same way I do that no president, not even one who rides ponies has the right to “inherent power” to violate congress and constitutional laws of the first and fourth amendment.
I say the emperor is naked! I mean the king is de-throned! I mean oh whatever…
