Oh gawd…………

I just saw this

After leaving office, Nagin founded CRN Initiatives LLC, a firm that focuses on Emergency Preparedness, Green Energy product development, Publishing and Public Speaking. He wrote and self-published his first book, Katrina Secrets: Storms after the Storms which gives a first-hand account of how New Orleans overcame the storm.

Ah yes, a sterling example of how Nagin “prepared” for Katrina

Excuse me folks..I am going somewhere to throw up.

    The rescuers were being held at bay by the local gendarmes while nagin was naggin’ bout not seeing any help arriving.
    I hope the 15 year old kid that stole a bus n’ drove into town to help evacuate folks is still around.
    People like him make a difference. ‘More gumption and bawls than the whole collective of official clusterfuckers that were brainlocked n’ sequestered up in cozytown.

    Bu-bu-bu it was Bush and Brownie that fucked up the response to Katrina. I wrote a pretty extensive piece here after the storm about how the emergency response is totally the responsibility of the local and state governments. FEMA is a coordinating agency that locates and provides federal resources to the responding governments. In other words they have a really cool rolodex with phone numbers and a checkbook to pay for calling in more help.

    They are NOT responsible for the response.

    In case anyone didn’t notice Bobby Jindal is large and in-charge down there. He’s doing a fine job, unlike his predecessor.

    I live in Mississippi and I remember Katrina very well.
    Law forbids the federal government to mobilize any resources in a state unless the governor requests it. Gov Barbour (Ms) requested federal help when the storm turned north and it became clear where it was going to hit. Bush started asking Gov Blanco (La) to make the request, which she refused to do until after landfall and the Dem’s “Bush fucked up” machine was at full throttle. 3 days after landfall she told the Red Cross to leave, that they weren’t needed, but then was made to realize how stupid that was and rescinded the order.
    Chocolate City Nagin (NO) ordered an evacuation 18 hours before landfall and then failed to implement the city’s evacuation plan (hence the School Bus Yacht Basin pictured). He then told people to shelter in the Superdome, which had not been prepared with food, water, and sanitary facilities.
    In the aftermath, Gov Blanco and Sen Landrieu requested $250 billion in disaster relief from the federal government but were embarrassed into withdrawing the request by Gov Barbour who pointed out that Mississippi, not Louisiana, took the direct hit and suffered most of the damage and was only requesting $30-40 billion in federal aid.

    Indeed it was, and be sure to hug the darling Princess right back from her Imperial Uncle.

    I really have to go dig up a comfy Duchy for those two :)

    I and many of my fellow club member have bought CMP Garands of all grades. If you’re going to shoot it “as is” I highly recommend going with service grade or better.

    Bought one in the ’80s from the old DCM – a little better than “service grade” for $145.00 – excellent rifle. :em07:

    Suggestion – APEX has a number of Romanian PSL parts kits (faux Dragunov) available for $359.00. I just built one, needed a receiver and barrel to make functional plus assembly. Shoots 7.62 X 54r ammo (RGuns, $145 for 880 round case).

    The Garand is definitely a better weapon one should acquire if possible but cheap ammo has its benefits also.
