Gentilly Girl- a part of the 99%

September 8, 2009

I Am Beyond Pissed Off-

We are getting screwed over and over. Hundreds of millions of dollars over 40 years and our floodwalls collapse flooding 80% of the city. Four years down the line, and many hundreds of millions more, the Corpse of Engineers says that they will have to close the gates on the London Ave Canal at 2.5 feet?

I thought these assholes spent those millions of $$$ to make the floodwalls stronger.  I believed that these people gave a shit about us.  I thought that they cared…

Obviously not.

Well, we are at 9+ foot and worst-case scenario is 8.5 foot for flooding.  We have a back-up generator and soon solar, to keep us going. We have enough food for 2 months and we can purify water, but what about the others that couldn’t pull off what we did?

They are fucked, plain and simple.

They repaired their flooded slab-on-grade houses trusting in the Corpse, but to no avail. Many of us warned them, but they wouldn’t listen. Now it’s time to see the possibilities of the Future.

The Federal and State Guv;mits don;t care about US. The Port and the oil yes, but not about us who live in this wonderful city. (well they do love the brothels…)

I’m going back in time to Ashley Morris- we must secede from the Gret Stet and take our royalties from the gas/oil industries and then hire the Dutch to save us.  Middle America does not care about us. Our ancestors were sold along with the land two centuries ago, and our way of living is abhorrent to thier supposed minds.

We are New Orleanians and this country must pay reparations for the damages to our homeland and our people.

Sinn Fein!


  1. Hello sis, this is nothing more than a cry for help and I truly apologize for the lack of fitting the theme of the posting.

    I love you… have since I first started talking to you and the other “night owls”

    I recently posted a comment on here hoping to get back in touch and to make up for lost time, but nothing came of it.

    I am going to try one more time.

    I’m going through a really tough time right now and I could use someone to talk to, I consider you… Betty… Candice…. all of you to be big sisters to me and I need you now more than ever.

    Have battled severe depression for as far back as I can remember, and confusion abounds.

    Am I trans gender… am I simply a male in touch with his femme side…. am I nothing more than a cross dresser….

    I really don’t know, but what I do know is that I’m incredibly depressed and the confusion doesn’ help as it stands
    I am seriously contemplating suicide.

    It’s bad enough not knowing who or what I am, but on top of that I’m incredibly lonely… I have severe social anxiety and coupled with major shyness and a lack of self esteem… well it all leads to major problems in terms of relationships.

    I’m not ashamed to admit it… I need someone to talk to, friends and family…. I love them to death… but they don’t ‘understand’ this side of me… you all do.

    I truly with all my heart hope to hear from some of you, because it was never my intention to lose contact with any of you in the first place and when push comes to shove…. I need you now more than ever.

    *princess kimmy* night owls forever!

  3. It’s not right that the people have been mistreated so, they should be allowed to live somewhere safe. I support your cause, they really must fix those walls!

  5. I’m getting back to it… after each anniversary of the Flood I sorta become a dead thing and really numb with the PTSD from it all. Too bad the only Psych meds that might work will also turn me into a damn zombie (I’m a witch, not a zombie)

    The State owes us mucho $$$, must get both our cottages running, trying to buy a restaurant, fighting causes at the National level, doing research and just trying to center my soul again eats everything up.

    Maybe a week of total insanity around Samhain will perk me up (or kill me)

  6. When I went through there about three years ago, everyone I knew was on anti-depressants. Just know this sister: millions of sentient beings all over the universe hear your cry and feel your pain. That does not guarantee a happy ending, unfortunately. Take what little energy it provides you psychically and emotionally and continue to bear witness. That may be the reason you were put there to experience all of this.

    I’m just a pilgrim passing through. I speak out because I’m sensitive to pain and suffering.
