This sucker is big with a small eye. Creepy! Good luck to you all down south! Anyone with good pics send them to me and I’ll post them. Looks like trouble.

    Good luck up there – looks like it going to be pretty drastic.

    On a related note – guess those hippie liberal environmentalists and scientists had a point after all. And no, I’m not refering to global warming, rather the destruction of the marshlands around NO which used to act as a sink for storm surges.

    Unfortunately all we can do at this point is get the credit cards out, and with a generous heart call the American Red Cross. I pray that I’m wrong but we could have tens of thousands of Americans homeless and in refugee status for months, maybe a year or more. We often talk of human rights, and the protection of individuals on this site. Regardless of what side of the aisle you favor it’s time to put up or shut up.

    While I agree we need to react and help those facing the aftemath, I have to wonder if we are enabling these types of disasters. New Orleans should have been condemned over 30 years ago, especially when you consider they are worried about the city turning into a 30 foot deep toxic swamp with sewage, corpses and refinery waste making it uninhabitable. If my children get hurt once a month from the same location I do not keep taking them to a doctor, I take that location off the allowed areas.

    Why do we keep rebuilding coastal Florida, Georgia, etc. During the winter months the government should announce a preplanning initiative to buy out property along the shores, anyone not wanting to take the chance to move to a better area will be uninsurable and the government will not have to give them hand out grants once every 25 years to rebuild. It is financially irresponsible to keep throwing money at this problem without correcting it.

    thats called an ecosystem services, and there plenty more where that came from

    I can’t even imagine what that thing will be like. I was spared. I just don’t know what to think.

    hippy liberal? What are you smoking? I live in Berkeley, and those hippy throwbacks are anything but LIBERAL….they’re old farts who long ago gave up the “be cool, man”. Talk about a bunch of grumpy old men.
    …..Might sound cute, but here, 30 years later, hippies are anything but liberal.

  7. Lindsay says:

    Meetsy – I wasn’t refering to actual “hippy liberals”, if such a thing exists anymore (apprently not), rather it was a sarcastic comment on the throwaway phrases that neocons use to disredit anyone who questions their polices re the enviroment etc.
