    CLEANING OUT N’AWLINS
    A Free Article from TTP Intelligence Bulletin
    By Dr. Jack Wheeler
    Wednesday, September 7, 2005

    What’s the difference between a disaster and an election in New Orleans?

    The buses run during an election.

    Why isn’t New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin worried about all the dead people being found in Katrina’s aftermath?

    Because they’ll keep right on voting anyway.

    Tasteless? Here’s what really tasteless: Cleaning up New Orleans physically without cleaning it up politically. Not draining New Orleans’ political cesspool of organized crime and corruption. Not evacuating Mayor Ray Nagin and every city official and police officer on the take before they get their greasy hands on all those billions of taxpayer dollars to rebuild the place.

    The appropriate description of New Orleans as a “party town in a welfare swamp” only begins to hint at the hideous truth behind jazz and booze in the French Quarter. That truth is that Mayor Nagin is a crook. New Orleans has probably never had a mayor that wasn’t a crook. New Orleans is the most corrupt crime-infested city in America.

    Denny Hastert was more right than he knew when he questioned the wisdom of rebuilding at incredible taxpayer expense a city in a flood plain below sea level that’s bound to be flooded again. Because before it gets flooded again with water, it will be flooded with the same crooks that run the place now.

    The New Orleans police force is the most corrupt police force in the country. Is it any wonder that they were videotaped looting along with other looters, and that they’ve been given a vacation in Las Vegas while New York City police officers are doing their job?

    The New Orleans Levee Board oversaw repairs on the 17th Street Canal levee last year – at the exact place where it gave way flooding the city. That’s because so much of the money went into Board member’s pockets and substandard concrete.

    The left-wing media has focused their attention on the plight of New Orleans and their wrath on George Bush to deflect attention away not just from Mayor Nagin’s incompetence ( you’re all familiar with the hundreds of now-flooded buses he never used for an evacuation), but his criminality.

    Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are not just engaging in race-hustling when they preposterously claim Bush didn’t get aid to New Orleans blacks because he’s anti-black. The purpose is to ward off any exposure of New Orleans corruption, which at present in run mostly by blacks.

    They are now pre-positioned to scream “Racism!” the moment a Congressman screws up the courage to demand hearings on the connection between Mayor Nagin and the Mafia or an inquiry into Mayor Nagin’s Swiss bank accounts.

    We could look upon Katrina as an opportunity to rid New Orleans of its political filth. But the odds are not good due to the racial incorrectness of doing so. If Mayor Nagin was white he could be Edwin Edwards' cell mate at the Oakdale, Louisiana Federal Prison. That’s where he and so many of the other folks who run New Orleans belong, rather than raking in all the taxpayer loot supposedly for rebuilding the Big Easy.

    I agree with just about everything in that article except for the race issue. New Orleans was probably the most desegrigated city in America. Unless you took Louisiana History, you probably don't know that even before the Civil War, New Orleans had a large population of FPC's (Free People of Color). These people were doctors, lawyers, etc...Because of the French laws, slaves could buy or be willed their freedom. It was common for one street to be all black and the next street be mostly white. There was no race issue in New Orleans.
