KATRINA: THE WORST IS COMING UNLESS WE ACT NOW!

... Or have a natural disaster fester into civil conflict and race wars!
KATRINA: THE WORST IS COMING UNLESS WE ACT NOW!

September 1, I'm watching the latest coverage on Katrina's aftermath...

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has stopped the evacuation buses because of gunfire on the other side of town, in the face of THOUSANDS OF THEIR FELLOW AMERICANS IN DIRE NEED. They stopped the buses with all those people slowly dying of thirst. Tens, hundreds are already dead from waiting... and they stop the damn buses because of some gunshots.

What the hell is that? What kind of asshole makes people who had no way of escaping, have no way of escaping that deathtrap of sewage, carcinogens and disease-what kind of asshole makes that call?

Your 'public servants' in federal "service". Talking up a good game but finding the first excuse not to do anything. FEMA's pulled this crap before during Hurricane Andrew in 1992; google that and find out the truth-oh, wait! Right now as I type this those same TRAITORS are even suspending rescue operations!

"We have to weigh the safety of our personnel"-THERE WOULDN'T BE A SAFETY ISSUE IF YOU TRAITORS WOULD DO WHAT YOU PROMISED! DO WHAT YOU SAY, GET THE BUSES DOWN THERE, EVACUATE THE SICK-EVACUATE THEM ALL! DROP SOME FOOD AND WATER TO YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS WAITING ON YOU!

Well, it's obvious FEMA ain't worth a damn it's up to We the People to rescue the Citizens of New Orleans.

What are you going to do, American? Because your response to your fellow Countrymen's plight will shape the future of our nation. Either help them , or let the government have it's way.

... If you let the government have it's way, those People are going to DIE!

Their deaths will ignite racial tinderboxes you call the "ghettos"-because Blacks will get the Message that poor folks, urban folks, their lives don't matter. To see the survivors of the most harrowing natural disaster America has suffered ground to the dirt by bureaucratic dickheads-AND YOU DO NOTHING?

Race War. You want your fellow Americans blaming YOU for the poor of New Orleans dying in the open sewer that city's become? Die waiting in vain for federal "assistance"? You want some enraged Citizen taking their righteous wrath out on YOU? Tear America apart? Break us all down so that we have no choice but for ALL OF US to be dependent on "federal assistance" in the aftermath?

Don't stand by and let your "public servants" make Hurricane Katrina any more of a disaster than it already is. Don't know what to do? Here are some ideals:

*If you have a boat in the Gulf of Mexico(that still sails of course) head for New Orleans. Sail up the Mississippi. Dock by the Levee, and get as many survivors on board as possible. Have extra food, water for them. Sail back out to Alabama, Texas or Florida. If the British could save a three hundred thousand man army from the Nazis at Dunkirk in 1940 with their yachts, fishing boats and other watercraft there's no excuse why we can't save a hundred thousand New Orleans.

*If you have a car, pack it full of bottled water and food, drive down to New Orleans. Empty it at the first group of refugees you find in need. If you're really ambitious, make arrangements with friends or a motel to take in your fellow countrymen-carry a family back on the return trip! If you have a truck or van you can carry more. Have your friends and family pool money together to rent hotel space, buy food and gas to do this.

When you do this, try doing it in as big a group as possible to assemble either from where you start, on the way, or near New Orleans, because

(1)Lots of people are in need, they're in big groups and a single person dropping off a few boxes and bottles is going to get swarmed. A big group can and will make a difference-just do it NOW!

(2)The federal government will probably try to stop you if you're on your own and win. If you're with a convoy you have numbers, you'll get media attention-you ROLL RIGHT THROUGH THEIR CHECKPOINTS! Your efforts might even get some "public servants" to remember the oaths they took and assist you!

TO THE NEW ORLEANS POLICE ON THE GROUND-IF YOU CAN GET THIS MESSAGE!

You can stop the violence if you get the People out of there-it's a simple equation.

To hell with protecting private property, it's all gone!

Just get everyone out of the city! Form groups, be their guards against robbers or crazies with AK's. Start marching people out of the city now or you're going to die with them.

Nobody can survive in a open sewer.

Make arrangements with those outside to have food and water. Even better, get those buses rolling again! Commandeer some buses if you have to! Even better, commandeer some of FEMA's shit; they've got plenty of it and aren't doing a damn thing with it. Get some boats that are still seaworthy and start sailing up the river or out to the gulf until you find civilization.

When you do this-IF you do this-you'll probably wind up confronting government agents from FEMA. Armed. So decide now who you stand with-the state or the People!

TO THE FEDERAL AGENTS ON THE GROUND

You see your fellow Americans-wallowing in a lake of sewage, food and water running out, the SMALL MINORITY of criminals giving your traitorous superiors a excuse(yes, excuse) to stop the evacuation buses, to stop the rescue ops.

Is any food or water going in?! Have those bastards ordered a stop to that because some shots were popped? Are you THAT concerned over your own personal safety that you're leaving up to a hundred thousand AMERICANS to suffer and slowly die in a open sewer?

Really; you have more and better armament than they do and actually know how to use it. You obviously outnumber them. You took the job because you wanted to help people no matter the circumstance.

Time to do your job for the People!

If you want to save those Americans you're going to have to cowboy up, ignore your "superiors" treasonous orders and get the helicopters flying yourselves. Get those boats back on those streets, get those buses rolling, the food and water down to those still waiting.

Shoot those punks with the AK's-what? I'm rifle trained myself and I could do it-POP! POP!

Rebel against your "superiors" and you lose your job. If you don't your fellow countrymen lose their lives.

This is a test you're going through. Who will you stand with?

TO THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE KATRINA-AND NOW THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

If none of the cowards "sworn to protect and serve" have the balls to uphold their oaths in the face of government ineptitude and treason, you're going to have to take care of yourselves. Evacuate yourselves.

IF you can find a seaworthy watercraft either float downriver out of New Orleans, or sail through Lake Ponchatrain or even the Gulf. If you have sails or a working motor go upriver.(your best bet)

If by land, get some carts, rope to use as harnesses. Get as much water as you can.

Start walking out of there. Right through FEMA's checkpoints. At once so they can't stop a human wave. Take turns riding in the cart because you've got a long way to go. Head West.

TO ALL AMERICANS:

I make this written prayer to our Father who always watches over and protects us His Children. Help open the hearts and eyes of us Americans and guide us to helping our Brothers and Sisters in New Orleans escape the deathtrap that once fine city has become. Move those in authority granted by We the American People to bypass whatever bureaucrats are blocking rescue efforts. Help those who can assist to do so; motivate them. May they see the poor the wretched the suffering not as racial or social stereotypes to make judgements on but as Americans as they are; plain folks who've lost everything.

May we seek redemption for the sins of apathy in the face of evil, and greed for luxury by awakening to save our Brothers and Sisters. Amen.
