Gingrich on Katrina

"I think it puts into question all of the Homeland Security and Northern Command planning for the last four years, because if we can't respond faster than this to an event we saw coming across the Gulf for days, then why do we think we're prepared to respond to a nuclear or biological attack?"

--former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

'Nuff said.

I hope the actions of the government after Kartina hits shows you that self reliance is what is needed, not government social programs or dependance on government like we have it now.
Become Self-Reliant and stop relying on the Governement to help you.

All the promises Politicians from both sides, DEM & REBUB, couldn't save the people that died horribly in LA.

Both Parties, or any party that champions the social programs we have, have and are ruining america.

Don't forget that the money system is corrupt, the federal reserve notes, are becoming more and more worthless, and the 10.5 Billion that the Congress passed for LA, it wasn't tax dollars, it was CREATED OUT OF THIN AIR. That is how all out money is created.
When you realize that, i know that you will abandon voting for Democrats or Repbulicans.

Thanks for listening to my rant.

Well, the submerging of New Orleans was a direct result of dissapearing money from the Army Corp of Engineers, so they couldn't keep the levees going. And majority of people who had to stay in these cities that were washed away stayed, not because they wanted to, but because they couldn't afford to. If we'd have had significant social safety nets in place they would have been able to evacuate with everyone else.

But the National Guard is in place for reasons exactly like Katrina. And it should be. Sadly, half of Mississippi and Lousiana's National Guard is deployed in Iraq for whatever reason the current administration has decided to give this week.

And you are right about promises not saving anybody. They never have and they never will. We need people willing to take action on those promises. Leaders to actually make things better, not to promise us hearts and moonbeams.

And I generally don't vote for Democrats or Republicans if I don't have to.

I vote for people. I think we should toss those labels out. It makes it too easy for people to make an opinion about those who pretend to represent them.

Thanks for your comments, social safeguards from the city or local governments may have been good, but i was talking about the federal government.

The money system is corrupt, no matter if it is dissapearing or not. It is created out of this air anyway.

Great comments on promises.

I agree that we should toss out labels, but unfortunatly most people seem to be voting for the 2 big parties in elections and America needs to wake up.

Also, you did not comment on my comments about the money system. Do u know how money is created, or how we arrived at our money system? Get your hands on the Book "The Creature from Jekyll Island" by Edward G. Griffen.

The money system is corrupt to it's core. I really beleive that. Ever since we came off the gold standard and put on our "emerald glasses" the state of the money system has been in decline.

I don't have a credit card... I think Creditors are the single biggest problem with the monetary systems the world over.

I don't think the Shylock got a bad rap. I think the shylocks of today are Chase Manhattan and American Express and the World Bank and so on and they will take their pound of flesh out of any person or country that doesn't do exactly what they say when they say it.

Sadly, though, I think it would be impossible for the world to go back to some type of barter system. We need money in our society, like it or not. If we have to pay taxes, we just need to make sure they don't go to line the pockets of Halliburton or Wal-Mart. We need to make sure that every dollar we pay in taxes goes back to the Americans that need it most.

I commend you for having your eyes open on the money system! Many people have no idea that money is what it is, created out of thin air, they think the dollar has some value to it.

Good points about the World Bank, and American Express, and Chase.

We do need a money system, not a money Cartel, which we have now.
We need to go back to a money system that has little if any inflation, and is not run by private interests. Its sad how far we have gone from the Constitution when it comes to our money system.

Also, just remember that the tax system is not what it seems. Every time anyone pays taxes, it doesn't actually go into some account or anything, it is just a way to control the population and control inflation. In other words, paying taxes is not a way to fund the government, so we should not think we are entitled to anything. Its all smoke and mirrors, we've been lied to. Its sad no politicians accept Ron Paul from Texas know what is going on with our money system.
The money that Haliburton gets is not our tax dollars anyway, just remember is all just a sham, so anything they say you gave as a taxpayer, isn't going to them, the government just creates money and then gives it to Haliburton for contracts, we pay for nothing, we just loose out time and labor.

None of the money goes back to the American's who need it, and it never will, the government just creates it and then puts into the economy. We have a government that can pretty much do as it pleases with money.

Thanks for listening, its glad to hear your opinion on the mone system, i just wish DEM & REPUB, would just wake up and see what is really going on, they are being lied to.
