Safety and surge protection
~Corps officials in New Orleans have said that they believe Congress only authorized building new stations for storm surge, not the more expensive, all-purpose stations that Sens. Landrieu and Vitter are advocating. But Adam Sharp, Sen. Landrieu's deputy chief of staff, said that "it's up to Congress to decide what is or is not authorized. And in order for a decision to be made, Congress needs cost estimates."
~Editilla Interrupta~Sharp refers to cost estimates from the Exquixotic Corps of Engineers--already ordered by Congress--rather than the Corps' relentless, obfuscatorial misinterpretations of past congressional mandates, or the meaning of the concept: tax-payer funded flood protection.
And btw, Times Picayune, how much levee has the Corps of Engineers 'rebuilt' already with their corrupt, mafia engineering 'cost recovered' bidding?
Please do not misunderestimate the Corps Intrasigence as a result of True Project Engineering Challenges---but understand it for the election-year hard'ball that it is. The Corps inbred policy is to deal with so'called "Congressional Mandates" or "SETTLED LAW" by simply waiting out any elected opposition to their subterfuge. They actually attempt to swing the next the next election with: fear (as in known flood threats), bribery (as with who will get Project Contract Dollars) and extortion (as in the current Criminal Case of Levee Reconstruction sited above).
These people are admitted criminals. They should be arrested and sent to OPP to sit-out the next hurricane season. Then, if we have a court left, we try these war criminals and drag them in chains down the middle of Canal Street, through the length of the 17th Street Canal and off into da'bayou to Angola behind the next evacuation 2nd Line. No public humilitation is too good for these bastards as no public humiliation will ever match the nationally televised rape and crucifixion which they perpetrated on the City of New Orleans. The Corps of Engineers needs to be shown how it really works in a prison: "Punk me once and I either take you out or you punk me whenever you want, again and again and again."
Please demand the 8/29 Commission.
Is this shit--or jus'more of the same shinola???
!?*%#?!~Given that most New Orleanians already know where they got they shoes, we may still wonda what the hell we steppin'in. Hence, I would like to know the ad costs: to the Exquixotic Corps for mid-page flash- player media ads like the one playing on and off James Gill's Online Times Picayune article (hung below...)
(...and god only knows where else across the country in different Corps PR machinery). Our taxes working against us.
How much did our Corps pay for this adversisment which links to their beautiful, ecosmiley website--itself a pretty slick set up by Corps Public Relations Contractors like this one? How much tax money did da'TP take from da'Perps?
Sorry but this is Not Bagdhad on'da Bayou and This Dog will Not Hunt. As there is no inherent military contracting secrecy problem here, though this does in fact involve our future homeland security, the TP must release the details of this Ad Contracting Assfuck to the public who paid for it.
This is rediculous. I cannot afford an ad with the TP--and would be willing to wager with James Gill that neither can tiny Levee.org afford such an ad, or Friends of the Sunflower River, or any of the myriads of Citizen Warriors across the country in various theaters of battle with the Corps--or they would have one as well to counter this Corpscicle Spin. This is why we do not accept ANY advertising revenue at da'Ladda. We know how to spell schmethics and the difference between that and aesthetics, aesthethics and just some shmo'ma from'da PT Barnham School of Shameless Self/Promotions!
Why am I funding Corps of Engineers Public Relations through the Times Picayune? I am no more interested in supporting any criminal's public relations than I am in opposing the death penalty for pedophiles.
What if the gang-banger murderer of the drummer for the Hot 8, well covered in the TP, wanted to run Flash Ads on behalf of his defense of that murder? What is the difference?
Whoever gots da'gold teeth makes da'ruels?
Is this not A CONFLICT OF INTEREST on the part of the Times Picayune? This is not a public service announcement but a rather expensive PAID ADVERTISMENT.
THE TIMES PICAYUNE IS ACCEPTING MONEY FROM SOMEONE WHO IS ACTIVELY THE TARGET OF LIABILITY LITIGATION BROUGHT BY HUNDREDS OF CITIZENS OF NEW ORLEANS AND ALSO UNDER CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION BY THE US JUSTICE DEPARTMENT AND ALSO LYIN'BASTADS!
SORRY SUCH A CAPITAL OFFENSE CALLS FOR CAPITAL LETTERS! I CAN'T STOP! SOMEBODY MAKE ME STOP!!!
AAAAAIIIIIIEEEEEeeeee....OK, I feel mo'betta. Ahhh?
And a -Big A- Fuck These Fuckity Fucking Fuckmooks!
Oh! OhOhOH! I Get It Now! SILLY ME! Judas Priestess! Forgive my Bourgeois Nievete....who will the Times Picayune endorse in the upcoming elections? Enqueerin'Rillas want to know.
