top kill

is it just me or does it seem like the so called best minds in the business have no idea what they are doing? i have a suggestion that i think is just as viable as the junk shot...let's just wrap the whole thing in duct tape. it is strong, water proof, and can withstand an amazing amount of pressure. i mean as long as we are letting our imaginations run free and if that does not work, we can zap it with our giant ray gun.

my god!

i fail to understand what the hol up is exactly. where is the coast guard? build the damn sand barriers! no more excuses. is there not one fucking administration that cares about louisiana and new orleans. the oil will kill the marsh grasses. when the marsh grasses die, the land erodes into the gulf of mexico. the more land we lose, the more vulnerable new orleans becomes. is there someone in the government that wants new orleans to die? i am starting to wonder. what a disgusting disaster. what the fuck? storm season is coming and we had all better pray that nothing comes into the gulf. fuck.

in a perfect world, people would not blame the victims. imagine the horror of standing on your roof top watching bodies of your neighbors float by and wondering when help will arrive. factor in the relentless august heat, no shelter, no water, and the fear that your house might be next to collapse. i guess i fail to understand how people sitting comfy in dry homes can somehow compare the fortitude of one natural disaster victim to another. all i know is that there were real heros operating that day. ordinary people that took boats and rescued person after person off their roof tops when there was no government help in sight. i never met a stranger after the storm and i saw people collapse on the street under the weight of such loss in this city post-katrina, that were helped up by people previously unknown. we may have a reputation but in new orleans, i learned that we take care of our own. we weathered katrina and gustav and we will weather this damn oil spill. we are the city of new orleans and fat mouthed sportscasters and stupid b.p officials can go fuck themselves. we are new orleans!

the cnn weatherman said that the water temperature off the coast of africa is two degrees warmer than it should be for this time of year and that has not happened since 2005 when katrina hit. he then drew a straight line from africa to new orleans and call the situation a cow. "what we have here is a cow but that does not mean we will have cow soup though we will get beef broth but not necessarily cow soup. but we do indeed have a cow." the cnn bobble head standing next to him, who is clearly a wise man replied, "so what you are saying is that we don't want cow soup?" so i learned that cows are to be feared and cow soup hated but we might as well get used to beef broth because there is no escaping it. what this has to do with storm season, i have no idea but i feel cow savvy.

now what is it we are fightingfor again??

this so called war on terrorism is supposed to be war against those that would destroy our way of life. what is our way of life?? is it freedom? because if it is then maybe we should not allow our government to erode our civil liberties. it is appalling that the current administration is contemplating the suspension of miranda rights of any citizen accused of terrorism. once upon a time, a united states' citizen was innocent until proven guilty. maybe we should become like the countries that we are fighting against. countries that stone their citizens without trials. i guess if we take on the characteristics of our enemies then they need not be called our foes. hmmm...perhaps this is our new fucked up road to peace.

the texas tour

I had a rather large family from texas on my tour the other day. it consisted of a mother and her brood of children, ranging in ages from 8 to 21. now i'm no prude but i was shocked to look over and see this skinny, pimply skinned kid no older than 13 and 75 pounds soaking wet sucking the life out of a cigarette like a damn pro. as the tour progressed all the kids save for the very youngest were not only smoking but knocking back the hurricanes and even absinthe. wow, it's true that texas really is a whole other country. i just don't think i want it stamped on my passport.
