    Well, if you are making money off of hurricane katrina then you are pathetic. Most legitimate news organizations have a right to post a story about the incoming hurricane, because thats what they, they report the news. Blogs should not change their focus just to make a buck or two. But those bloggers out there writing just to increase their visitors just to get people to click on their google ads is pathetic to say the least.

    These people are the scum of the earth and are by essence scraping the bottom of the barrel. To me anyone making money off the heart-ache and suffering of others are pathetic and need to be locked away for a vey long time.

    What google needs to do is set it up some type of filter. When a natural disaster hits, the public service ads need to run on those web pages that are specifically talking about a natural disaster. If these websites, and/or blogs that report about the natural disaster like hurricane Katrina really care about whats going on, then they would not care if they were making money at all.

    In my opinion you would see a lot less blogging about natural disasters if google implemented this kind of filter. Just food for thought.

    I think your being provocative for the sake of it. Whilst I’d be stupid to believe that some people would blog this stuff in an attempt to get more traffic I can assure you that ad returns normally plument during major disasters, the London Bombings are probably a good example. I also happen to believe that people, particularly on the ground provide unique perspectives that have a right to be heard.

    When countries suffer from disasters, such as Indonesia, America is one of the first countries to offer help,without being asked.How many countries will now step up and offer help to the american people who are suffering horribly because of this disaster? NONE thats how many.People who hate americans{France} but love american money need to shut their mouths when they dont get their way! America will recover. America lost people in WW2 trying to save Europe. America stopped Milosivich from slaughtering hundreds of thousands in Bosnia and surrounding areas. Has anyone said thanks? NO. America should remember who its friends are and forget about those who only love American money!I pray for those suffering at the hands of this disaster.

    Wow, what force the storm came in (thankfully it was category 5 afterall). Funny how everyone was told to goto the Dome, it looks like the first place I would visit if i was a huricane! Thankfully everyone had suffient notice to leave the area (if they had an alternative).

    A website on http://www.sparesomechange.com (poverty portal and homless search engine) may be able to help find homeless resources in near by counties and states down south near New Orleans, Louisiana…

    BTW, stop looting Walmart and hope everyone is well, my heart goes out to you!

    Wow, one word for the sit in N.O. ANARCHY That is all N. O. is right now, lawless chaos and inhumantity. I understand bush is a republican. I am too. What in god’s name is taking so long? Does emergency preperation take this long? Why are people dying on the streets? Is it too hard to drop supplies, even MREs (meals ready to eat) by plane over the city? Why is it so hard to send 1000 national guard troops out? Why is it neccesary for evacuees to be denied airlift due to one lone sniper? This situation is bullshit. No matter how much i may support bush, why is there no damn federal aid yet? its been four days, shit!

    How is that in the last 40 years, not counting our citizens who died in Vietnam, that more Americans died in our own country in this administration than any other before it? Is it possible that this administration is truly bad karma for our country?

    I heard on BBC World radio that the USA had been offered assistance from the UK and Germany but Bush rejected the offer with the remark “We can manage this crisis ourselves” how arrogant. I would have thought that some form of Contingency Plan should have been made considering the Hurricane was known well in advance

    I am in shock in the way the relief effort is being handled in New Orleans!! Or let me re-state lack of relief effort! It has been days now and the government has not declared Marshall law or done anything to help maintain order and get supplies to these people ASAP! Constituants need to emplore their govenors and law makers to open their borders and aid these victims who will see no end in sight of ever returning to their homes! Does no one care about these people because they are impovrished? They are so insignificant because they aren’t affluent? Please! If every state could be benevolent and open their doors and companies could aid these jobless people by giving them jobs and Wal-Mart could do something good for a change (with their bad business practices they need to help) maybe they could step up to the plate and make a change! Now is not the time for apathy, but rather action for us all! IN donations big and small, but moreoever in forcing our state governments to help!!! There is an African proverb that states “It takes a village to raise a child”. IN this case it takes a nation to aid our neighbors, brothers and sisters in this their greatest time of need! Because we all know…IT COULD HAVE BEEN YOU OR I THAT THIS HAPPENED TO AND NEXT TIME IT MIGHT BE!!! COME ON AMERICA LET”S SHOW THE WORLD HOW WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN!!!

    g19865q you’re being irrational, probably because you’re upset. For one part it’s delicate to offer help to the most powerful country in the world (in the sense that it can be perceived as “insulting”), and for the other part France and many other countries have actually already offered help. Now it’s up to GWB to accept these offers or not.

    95% of those left in N.O. have been living on the governments dime for generations, they have 4,5,6,7 kids with them and all they do is scream for more help. They say its the govt. fault… bitch,bitch, bitch…Have some gratitude that your govt. has been taking care of you for years. Now they are all coming to Tx with guns in hand and demanding a handout…How about a getting a JOB. The security issue’s that Houstonion’s face the next coming weeks is going to be unbelievable. I say put a fence around the astrodome and keep them in there so they dont loot, pilfer, and pillage our beautiful city.
    Lastly, instead of sitting on your butt all day writing bad comments about the “administration” get up and get over there, Join the rescue,
    this country is full of BLEEDING HEART LIBERALS that sit on there butt and say this is wrong, that is wrong, its GWB’s fault. If you cant offer a solution, quit crying and get busy.

    It is pathetic for the Mayor of New Orleans and the Governor of Louisanna to get on a pulpit and rave about not getting help. I do agree it may be slow but you don’t just throw stuff at a problem, you get organized and get it done correctly. If there is any blame here, why didn’t Mayor Nagin take the correct action when he had time to take it and mobilize any bus (school or city bus), van, car and any other military vehicle and get his people out of harms way. If we need to start pointing fingers I think the Governor and the Mayor should be the first in line. It is their job to take appropriate action and they didn’t, plain and simple.
    People are mobilizing to help but this takes time. I believe help is on the way. I didn’t see the Mayor of New Orleans offering any help to any states in the pas couple of years that were ravaged by hurricanes offering the assistance of his state, or offering any aide. Don’t get me wrong, I think Mayor Nagin has been good for New Orleans but to start pointing fingers isn’t the best way to be productive. Especially since he could have taken action to alleviate some of the problems in the first place.

    Reading through the comments made here it breaks my heart. The people who have been affected by hurricane Katrina have lost everything and now try to survive without food, little clean water, and surrounded by dead bodies. More and more people are dying daily not because of the hurricane but because they are refugees without sufficient assistance. Where is the support? I know hundreds of thousands are supporting by contributing money to many wonderful organizations such as the Red Cross – but where is the federal assistance. Why in this country is the situation the way it is.

    AND to the hard hearted Tom in Houston – How dare you!!! What kind of supposed human being are you to dare judge these people. Have you ever been in their shoes or experienced anything remotely close to what the people in New Orleans are facing? Bythe way…what constructive are you doing to help other than posting inacurate self-imaged stats. Being that you live in Houston have you volunteered your time as the relief centers or at local hospitals that are taking in injured? Have you donated one thin dime to any relief effort or so much as one blanket? Ask yourself what am I doing first before you opportunistically spout off your own personal political venom.

    As I turned on the television this morning, I was pleasantly surprised at all of the many countries offering help in the form of supplies,money,troops & so on.Yes I wrote the earlier article about other countries not helping Americans in their time of need. When I am wrong, I say it. in this case, I was way wrong.a little ashamed as well at having been so wrong. even Sri Lanka and China who themselves are still recovering from devastation themselves, are offering help.Many other countries are also offering help. too numerous to list here. My appologies offered freely for having opened my mouth too soon. May the creator of all things bless all of those suffering and all of the different countries offering help to ease the suffering of those in need.

    I just want the people of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and other affected areas to know that the hearts and prayers of thousands, and likely millions, of people are with them. I feel absolutely frustrated as my lack of ability to do anything but donate cash. I have done that, but the stories coming out daily are heart-wrenching. My heart goes out to them. I will continue to pray for those who are affected, and to be grateful for the blessing of living where I live and being able to contact family and friends to let them know I love them.

    How can we arrogantly tell the world can we can fix a problem in some foreign city or country when we cannot even restore peace and order, repeat PEACE and ORDER in 3 of our Southern cities? Isn’t that the height of hypocrissy and arrogance? No matter what one’s political, religious, or personal persuasions are, the fact remains that it truly took too long for our so called public officials to act.

    And for those people who believe that the lives and welfare of people from NO are less than theirs, I hope that this catastrophe never happens in your own backyard.

    Venezuela, Cuba have pledged help (and they’re not exactly on good, friendly terms with the US). Sri Lanka, who’s only just recovering fromt last year’s tsunami has also pledged help.

    France, which is often arbitrarily portrayed as being “anti-American”, has very precisely stated what it can do to help (stuff and people would come from Caribbean provinces immediately, making them the first to get there if this help is actually wanted):

    1,000 beds
    600 tents
    60 generators
    3 water treatment portable plants and 3 water pumps
    11 experts on hurricanes (and 35 civil security experts)
    60 aerial rescue operators (with helicopters)
    2 navy boats (1 helicopter carrier)
    8 planes (not sure what kind of planes)

    Add to that the strategic oil reserves that France has agreed to send over to the US as part of an initiative by the European Union (the foreign policy of the EU, Solana, has been quoted to say “Whatever the United States will ask for they will be given”)

    The State Department said offers so far had come from Belgium, Canada, Russia, Japan, France, Germany, Britain, China, Australia, Jamaica, Honduras, Greece, Venezuela, the Organization of American States, NATO, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Greece, the Dominican Republic, Cuba , El Salvador, Mexico, South Korea, Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

    Assistance ranged from medical teams, boats, aircraft, tents, blankets, generators and cash donations, with most countries sending what they are best at (example: Israel is offering to send experts on trauma).

    I don’t know if Bush’s cabinet will accept all or part or none of it, but I would accept it all, from any country. Any help should be appreciated!

    Tom from Houston….What an arrogant pig!

    I am extremely embarrassed to be an American right now. If we had known that 9 11 was going to happen, I am sure that we would have evacuated New York. Why , when a known threat is heading for our fellow citizens, did we not take action? I would like to know the reason? I am sure that the people of Mississippi and Louisiana wondered the same thing as they were drowning. Our president is so out of touch that it is just mind boggling. The Mississippi and Louisiana citizens, being from two of the most impoverished states in our country, had no means to escape on their own. Why did we not mobilize our National Guard to evacuate those so unfortunate? We knew the storm was a Category 4 for 2 days before it hit! We also knew that the New Orleans levee system is only designed to withstand a Category 3 storm. Did we not respond because we must liberate Iraq? Is that where all of our Troops are now? Are the Iraqi’s more important than Americans? When I saw the Tsunami hit , I thought ” at least in this country we would take immediate action. ” Was I ever wrong!

    Holly you are not a real texan are you.The answer to your questions.
    1. yes i have been homeless with no money,food,water or clothing although i didnt go looking for a hand out for generation after generation. 2. What am I doing? I got up and came to work today. 41% of my pay will be taken out and given to the government to help pay for all this. After a week when all the sensationalism and craziness has subsided. I will be at the astrodome to pray for people; my company will be offering jobs; donating money. We will be living with an extra 200,000 people in our city 3. After you have donated your 50 bucks and sent some clothing you will forget about it, say that you did your part and sit at starbucks with you latte and go on. And as the Supt. of police in N.O. said many times last night. Houston will be dealing with the CRIMMAL ELEMENT, Drugs, theft,rape and all the thing associated with it, thats what I’ll be doing, dealing with that for up to 3,4,5 months. Why dont you keep an eye on the crime stats around Houston. Last night there were car jackings, robberies and a assortmant of other lawlessness. Yea, check back with me in a month.

    I just wanna say that it’s pretty embarrasing to know that i live in the most powerful and richest country in the world that is also the most generous country when it comes to relief and aid to other countries. We have an abundance amount of food in our country but yet we can’t even provide quick response to our own people in times of trouble and despair here in our homeland. SHAME ON BUSH!… get our troops out of Iraq and bring them back here in our own homeland to help OUR own people!

    Tom of Houston, I’m glad that you are the go-getter that you are. Everybody wishes that all of our citizens are go-getters like you. But just like in an apple cart, there will always be some bad apples and some good apples. Our country is the same way, too—–it has some bad public officials and good public officials. It has some officials who are full of talk and some who are all action, good action.

    Perhaps when you pray—–you said that you will praying in the Astrodome for these poor folks—-sometime this week, pray that they, too, be shown the light the way that you were shown.

    I am from Nebraska and am sickened by the devastation from this storm. I have visited New Orleans and it is a beautiful city. What is so incredible to me is the lack of food and water (why not air drops of food) and the over abundance of politicians on the media with the continuance of “we understand what you are going through”. Like hell they do.
