Louisiana is forgotten

As we all keep saying (SCREAMING) where's the help?!!!

Nearly three months after Hurricane Katrina forced tens of thousands from their homes, bureaucracy is creating a new tide of trouble for victims of the storm.

"We feel like we are citizens of the United States who are nearly forgotten," said Democratic Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco.

Hey! Here's a really good friggin' idea. How about Louisiana just secedes and unilaterally claims that $5 billion a year in oil leases! Sure - I know - then we could only blame ourselves. Well, so be it. At least we won't be captive to FEMA and the friggin' Bush administration - just one less layer of money-skimming idiots.

Not a bad idea, actually. Congress sure the hell won't help.

Hell - let's not just keep the oil royalties. Let's keep the oil!

When the country loses 20 percent of its oil supply and we get to charge what we want, then we'll see if anyone pays attention.

Charge top dollar, and don't join a cartel!

We need to make the mover to break from the Union. If only as a PR stunt to get the attention we deserve.

BH - (reading that great Acadiana post) maybe you pointed out the Mike Tidwell story in The Advocate where he lamented that:

"No truly charismatic grassroots leader has emerged and, when you look at really successful campaigns for social change anywhere in this country throughout our history, it has always involved serious grassroots organizing.

"It is a huge missing part of this puzzle," Tidwell said.

I think the stunt is worth a try. Maybe a Jackson Square protest. I do believe it would attract a very wide array of people - not just the nutty granola types who nobody takes seriously.
