Bet you save a lot of money on fixed monthly costs. You can always knock on the door of the Salvation Army. Building gone? Oh, I hear they will drive in with a big truck soon."


President signs executive order allowing contractors to pay below prevailing wage in affected areas.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) Sept. 8, 2005 — President Bush issued an executive order Thursday allowing federal contractors rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to pay below the prevailing wage.

In a notice to Congress, Bush said the hurricane had caused “a national emergency” that permits him to take such action under the 1931 Davis-Bacon Act in ravaged areas of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi.

Is the diary by roseeriter true after all?

Bush’s action came as the federal government moved to provide billions of dollars in aid, and drew rebukes from two of organized labor’s biggest friends in Congress, Rep. George Miller of California and Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, both Democrats.

“The administration is using the devastation of Hurricane Katrina to cut the wages of people desperately trying to rebuild their lives and their communities,” Miller said.

“President Bush should immediately realize the colossal mistake he has made in signing this order and rescind it and ensure that America puts its people back to work in the wake of Katrina at wages that will get them and their families back on their feet,” Miller said.

Tracking Katrina: Governor Blanco Requests Federal State of Emergency

From the NewsChannel 6 Storm Spotting Team:

Governor Blanco requested $9,000,000 and a federal state of emergency declared Saturday.  She sent the following letter to President Bush:

(Saturday) August 27, 2005

The President
The White House
Washington, D.C.

Regional Director
FEMA Region VI
800 North Loop 288
Denton, Texas 76209

Dear Mr. President:

Under the provisions of Section 501 (a) of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 5121-5206 (Stafford Act), and implemented by 44 CFR § 206.35, I request that you declare an emergency for the State of Louisiana due to Hurricane Katrina for the time period beginning August 26, 2005, and continuing.

[…] In response to the situation I have taken appropriate action under State law and directed the execution of the State Emergency Plan on August 26, 2005 in accordance with Section 501 (a) of the Stafford Act. A State of Emergency has been issued for the State in order to support the evacuations of the coastal areas in accordance with our State Evacuation Plan and the remainder of the state to support the State Special Needs and Sheltering Plan.

[…] I have designated Mr. Art Jones as the State Coordinating Officer for this request. He will work with the Federal Emergency Management Agency in damage assessments and may provide further information or justification on my behalf.


Kathleen Babineaux Blanco


Why were offers for assistance not accepted? Offers from states, nations and the Red Cross.

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson offered Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco help from his state’s National Guard last Sunday, the day before Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana. Blanco accepted, but paperwork needed to get the troops en route didn’t come from Washington until late Thursday.

    Evacuees :: Texas 220,000 – Cruise Lines Booked

    KSLA News 12 Latest Headlines Katrina Catastrophe  

    The governor of Texas worries that his state may not be able to take many more evacuees from Hurricane Katrina. Governor Rick Perry says Texas is committed to doing everything it can to help, but wants to be sure it can provide the services needed, including medical care and education. Perry says local officials “are beginning to notify us that they are quickly approaching capacity.” Louisiana and the FEMA. have been alerted.

    Texas has taken in over 220,000 evacuees, with more on the way. Nearly 19,000 are in the Houston Astrodome. Over 120,000 are in 97 shelters in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and dozens of smaller cities. Another 100,000 are in hotels and motels, with still more in churches or private homes.

    Carnival Cruise Lines has canceled voyages for three of its ships so they can house victims of Hurricane Katrina. The schedules of the Ecstasy, the Sensation, and the Holiday have been cleared for the next six months. Two will dock in Galveston, Texas, and the third in Mobile, Alabama. Together, they can hold about 7,000 passengers.
    The request for the cruise ships came from the FEMA. The cost of the charters was not disclosed. Carnival is apologizing to those whose cruise plans have been canceled. The number is believed to be in the tens of thousands. Anyone who re-books will get a one-hundred-dollar-per-person shipboard credit.

    Latter link, reads as follows —

    ” With the chartering of the cruise ship Holiday to the Military Sealift Command (MSC) on behalf of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as part of Hurricane Katrina relief efforts …”

    Resting Saturday at a friend’s quiet home in Southdowns, Charmaine Neville was a world away from the despair and desperation that surrounded her New Orleans home last week.

    Before Hurricane Katrina and breaks in the city’s levee system brought a great city to its knees, Neville lived on Pauline Street in the city’s Ninth Ward.

    WH Press Conference – Scott McClellan

    What did the press talk about :: OIL
    With whom did the President communicate: Mike Brown.

    The conference planned for August 31, Wednesday afternoon 16:00 hours, involves all top dog bureaucrats for an interagency task force. No phone calls to the governors of the disaster stricken states? At this time, thousands of Americans along the Gulf Coast have drowned, many hundreds will not be rescued and will die in the coming hours as the bureaucrats convene an interagency task force, awaiting the presence of VP Cheney from Wyoming – our top dog Energy crisis – meaning :: OIL

    MSNBC :: Fuel Pipelines 100% capacity
    Sept. 7, 2005 — The two main pipelines Colonial and Plantation are pumping full capacity according to State Secr. of Transportation.

    I couldn’t understand strategic oil pipelines dependent on electrical power and not self-generating diesel units. Emergency units were placed in pumping stations to get transport back on line. Corporate power!


    Barbara Bush has heaped further pressure on the beleaguered US President by claiming refugees from Hurricane Katrina are better off thanks to the floods.

    America’s former first lady and President George W Bush’s mother claimed the aftermath of the deadly hurricane is “working very well” for the many made homeless and still anxiously waiting for news of friends and relatives following the disaster.

    Mrs Bush made the series of gaffes after visiting the stricken Astrodome in Texas where many evacuees from New Orleans are being housed in appalling conditions.

    Barbara’s visit to the Astrodome, and Texas hospitality:

    “What I’m hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas.

    “Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality.”

    “And so many of the people in the arena here were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them.”

    I understand some clean-up needs to be done – she could join for let’s say 24 hours – a day and a night!

    Of course for such a short period of time, no meals and water is permitted. There are no buses, so perhaps some swimming is required in Crescent city. Karl can spin this event in a Cold War stint!

    25,000 EXTRA Body Bags

    The firm of Kenyon Worldwide Disaster Management has been hired by FEMA to coordinate the recovery of bodies in Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes. Officials estimate it will be able to handle 500 to 1,000 bodies, which will be stored in refrigeration trucks until they can be buried.

    A temporary warehouse morgue in rural St. Gabriel, La. that had been prepared to take 1,000 bodies, was being readied to handle 5,000.

    Challenging Times …
    we’re in, will summon a leader who will come forward. Moment of crisis requires HOPE for survival to make change happen. Despair, like fear, only works to the advantage of present crooks in the WH.

    It is important for all Americans to recognize this person, who will stand up to be counted.

    In the meantime, do what you can and do best, if that is blogging to spread the truths about this administration, so be it. We’ll hang in there until the Republicans are run out of our capital city, named after our founding father George Washington. I do believe he also battled a King George … and won!

    America needs to return to the fundamentals of democracy, rule by the people, for the people and of the people.

    Perhaps we should reflect the words of a truly Great American, Abraham Lincoln and his Gettysburg address

    <click pic to enlarge>

    G E T T Y S B U R G   A D D R E S S

    Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.


    … that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain …

    –that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom–and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    The Demoratic leadership must follow a line of sweeping reform in the Capital, including Congress. We the people will only accept ousting of all incompetent, chickenhawk politicians, who have let this country go down a path of ruins.

    “Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring. Those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” Robert F. Kennedy
