Disasters really bring out both the best and the worst in humanity. I just hope these latest ones bring out more of the former than the latter.
Katrina broke my heart. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in the world. I grew up in Gretna.

Was very glad, however, that I was not fated to be a resident when that storm hit - the way it was handled, both locally and Federally, was utterly criminal.

I fell in love last year with an HBO series called 'Treme'. It was already two seasons in when I started watching, and this year will be the fourth, and last, season of the show. Do you watch it?

I live in Tulsa now, and the storms left Tulsans will well-soaked earth. That's about it. Where I am, we didn't even get high winds or hail. But Moore is going to need lots of time, effort, money, and compassion, for years after this. The destruction and loss of life was crippling.

Friend of ours runs a roofing company - he and his crews have been there since 3pm yesterday, and will be repairing roof damage to what homes were left standing, for the next several weeks. If I know John, he'll be doing a lot of it pro bono. He's that kind of guy.

No basement here either. We pickup shutters and pray. Wilma ..we were in the outer eye wall like forever. no power.for almost 2 weeks. But we didn't get the body count like with Katrina.
One thing I will say in places where they told people to evacuate like the beaches..They had busses to move those with no car.

With Katrina mayor and gov just said evacuate and those people who could went to the dome..all those busses they could have used to get people out BEFOREHAND. Mayor didn't even think of it. They had days to get people out. But no one could forsee the levy problem..well not in
The short term any way the way it happened.
And the feds can't come in til invited by governor governorship waited.. But they can only stage outside the hit zone. Or else they are of no use if their trucks wash away. Same here they are close as can be. But no trailers til after. But we do get time to prepare..extra water (thank God for there was no clean here for days) extra,food .generators but no gas to run them .no one though to out generators on the gas pumps. DUH.
THEY had tons of gas at the port but no way to get it out and no way to pump it..
We have overhead electric lines. Power. Company says they are trimmingvtrees but they don't.

Oh well. Anyway hope your friends,are ok.

It really showed you what a sinful human being /beings are capable of under the right cinditiins doesn't it?

I believe there is only one way to Heaven, but also fully believe others can believe however they wish.

I don't believe many different religions all go to the sane Heave..

Anything I can talk someone into, anither person can talk them out of, and if I had power to force others to do what I say, it would be worthless.

God only accepts those who freely accept Him.
They love their Sin, and don't want anything to do with a God who may judge anything the do

Everyone does what is right in their own eyes.
Problem -child porn is ok in some folks eyes, and so is calling out to desperate women to pull off their tops to get a rescue seat.

May God help all those effected by the storms. It makea me very thankful me and my family are safe.

I couldn't watch it, honestly. I appreciate what they were trying to do, but ultimately, the networks wanted to capitalize on the suffering of the New Orleans residents. That's what it came down to, honestly..
I can certainly understand your feelings here. Seems no real motive exists at the corporate level other than the fricken bottom line. It is, however, an excellent show, with a heavy concentration on the music and soul of N'awlins...and much of the producers' proceeds did go to aiding the homeless musicians there. I believe one or two of the writers live in the city still, and have family in the area, so were able to help in the best way they had....intimate observation and chronicling.

My sister runs a shelter. She's had great luck with the thundervests, but they don't work on every dog.

The more intensive heartworm treatment has worked for all but one of her dogs, whose heart was too far gone. If yours is healthy otherwise, then you have a good chance of success.

She is big enough I can give her beastly if I know a biggie is coming. Thought we were done for today. Just had a real big crack almost right over head. She's gone in her house. Thought about one of those jacket things. Have to look into that. Anyone try them
Will get chamomile but she only seems to drink once a day..Oh well.
Beastly is good for long trips too. And doesn't make her dopey. We walk her at all the stops.
Poor dog. She was a rescue. New in so they had to spay her. She stayed out and had a few problems waking up. Then they get tests back she has heart worms. Vet there says we can't get her.
So hubby And I are really upset. He is on crutches and evidenced GO get another one..we walk in one of the volunteers recognizes me because head volunteer brought me there in the first place.
Lol she says..did you come to pick up Keepers. I say well yes so did..how is she better???
She says oh she's doing great. Sooooo I get hubby ..we sign papers. Pay fee before vet can stop us. Think she was off.
We took her to our vet said no real heart problems he can see ..
So we get humane vet ..She really was nice to try experimental heart treatment. Could kill her but better than heart worm or just putting her down. Like they were going to do!!! In the end it worked No heart worms for past 8 years. And spoiled really rotten by dad. Of house I'm the one gives her meds. Etc do the hard stuff. What else is new
Lol

Interesting. I did notice some grammar issues with Rosesez' posts, but I'm hardly one to criticize. It isn't my business to police the activities of forum members, however. If Ladilullu wants to post 24-7, let her. How does it hurt you? Some of you seem to take this forum far too personal.
Rosesz does a lot of posting from a mischievous device she refers to as 'Madam Kindle'...resulting in oft-misspelled and confusing text. Not her failing, as she is a highly intelligent person, but that of the device, which is geared to reading rather than writing, and hence has some very interesting auto-correct offerings. The vast majority of us are able to look past MK's foibles, and attend to the intentions of its user. Some of us, however, are petty assholes, who prefer disparagement to debate, and find a source of 'pleasure'(?) in niggling at Rose, who does not deserve it...

This one to whom you've replied here, however, is a mole rat (probably the naked variety)

http://www.arkive.org/naked-mole-rat/heteroce...
which unfortunately has burrowed its way on to this forum - ostensibly for the purpose of chucking its fecal matter and old nesting material out of its hole.

Ladilulu has found much better ways to occupy her time, and has not posted on Topix for months.

Dogs have unconditional love, and they don't send you to hell if you do something they don't like. Looks like the dyslexics are the true prophets!

Yeah, they just shuffled everyone off to the dome. They did have busses, but not nearly enough and not soon enough. The highways were backed up with traffic with people trying to get out at the last minute, and it was getting closer and closer. People working in hospitals euthanized critical patients rather than let them die of dehydration, and there were shootouts inside the superdome.
Most New Orleans residents relied on public transit. It wasn't as easy as people supposed to get out of there. The sea wall was supposed to be worked on years ago, but Bush ignored the requests. People like to blame New Orleans residents for not getting out in time, but nobody knew it was going to hit that damned hard until it was too late, and it wouldn't have flooded if the sea wall had been secured as it should have been.
You know what doesn't help during a disaster? Blaming the victims for being there.:-(


Thing is imo. Like after the storm they showed all these school buses just sitting. The mayor could have used those. People commandeered them to go to Texas after so it said on the news.

Brazilians is as big a storm magnet as we are. Days before we get all these news programs with all the LOCAL emergency plans. Shelters. Transports. Every possible thing and the hotlines. And weather guys.
For days and days before.

Near as I can tell in La governor told people to leave .photo opinions with mayor saying get out. Then they finally called for Fed aid(which comes after) and opened the dome. Poor people who went there.

As for the levee. I would bet money it needed repairs long before Bush took office. The weaknesses don't happen overnight. But he was the president. It's Congress that appropriates funds.
But whoever is in charge the Federal Government cannot just show up and start hauling people out. That is a local function.

All of the branches had their failures. And in the end wasn't it a loose barge that was the last straw. Poor planning..Poor policing
And poor people with no place to go

Only my opinion . And our area has its problems too. They divert water from the west out to sea..HOWEVER. That fills the canals becomes high tide and in October the moon when Sandy went by.
Our beaches were flooded beyond redemption. My street flooded which it never had even with Wilma. Water was squeezed UP out of the storm drains. The ocean PUSHED BACK against the flow..Stupid engineers. The beaches closed for months.

And yesterday more floods. Power outages and no hurricane season yet.

Oh well. No one listens to plain old folks. That goes for New Orleans as well. THEY had close to a week after Katrina hit here. AND I bet
The common people could have up with better plans than the mayor or gov ..

In short it's mean to blame the victims. Now here we had some standing in line for free water 12 hours after the storm.And go g bring with the people manning the trucks......hello you buy it before at least enough f or 2 days. Stuff like that makes me scratch my head. We open the schools for shelters but people bring food and water if they get there before. Obviously if your roof blows off or tree hits it..different story.

But those poor dome folks. Raping and violence ..no excuse. IMO

you're a liar. i positively did not deny having said it was a debacle. i denied having said what "you" quoted me as saying, which was....mixing up a colon and semi colon was a debacle.
what i said was what she did was a debacle, and what she did was a lell of a lot more than simply mix up a colon and a semi colon.

now be a good little liar and show everyone where i denied having said what she did was a debacle.
