WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency in Louisiana on Monday as that state and others along the Gulf Coast prepared for Tropical Storm Isaac.
The White House said Obama informed Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal of the emergency declaration in a phone call. The declaration makes federal support available to save lives, protect public health and safety and preserve property in coastal areas.
Jindal, a Republican, shot back late Monday in a letter to the Obama administration that the declaration fell short of the help he was requesting.
"We appreciate your response to our request and your approval," Jindal wrote. "However, the state's original request for federal assistance .... included a request for reimbursement for all emergency protective measures. The federal declaration of emergency only provides for direct federal assistance."
Jindal said the storm is forecast to strengthen to a Category 2 hurricane "and squarely impact the state of Louisiana."
When are you dumb motherfuckers going to learn the the feds are not going to give you the help you want. Why do you even want their fucking help? Remember last time? Gun confiscation, martial law, suspension of your Rights, forcibly removing you from your property, etc.
Katrina wasn't that long ago. How come nobody prepped for another hurricane? Fuck, I'd have least gone out and bought a couple rubber dinghys for 40 bucks a pop. That's only 8 crack rocks, man.
When the feds show up, politely tell them to shove their assistance up their collective asses and to get the fuck away from you, then get a good sight picture on the HMFIC, take a normal breath, let it out slowly and squeeze....
