Apparently the post on Nagin cleaning out the Imagine snakepit was a smokescreen. They're still squirming in public dollars and still sucking the system for all they can.
Ray...you are no better than any of the crooked bastards who came before you. If you're not going to clean your dirty house...I'm gonna put it on display.
Here's the prescient question....Who authorized 500 thousand post-K city dollars to be deposited to the Municipal Yacht Harbor Corp. ? And....where did that money go once it was deposited? Why is Meffert trying to become the chariman of that board?
We'll start there and work our way up to AFO Investments and exactly what real estate they're investing in.
Let me explain how sad this is. I just drove some folks around the city last night that were in town for the Cardiology Conference. They had been here before and couldn't believe how fucked up the city still is....and we were uptown, the part that isn't as fucked up as everything else.
They asked me why the streetcars weren't running. I told them "we're broke."
They asked me why the streetlights weren't working especially on St. Charles. I told them "we're broke."
They asked me why there are so many National Gaurd vehicles at their hotel (Holiday Inn-Superdome). I told them "we're broke".
Finally they asked me why doesn't the country know about this and why isn't this guy Nagin doing something to get the word out. I started to say because he's an idiot, but I stopped because as Chris Rose recently pointed out...it's a catch phrase and it's so obvious it's not worth saying anymore.
I thought a little harder about it and I had a small ephipany....."I don't think he cares....I really don't think he cares. I think he's only concerned with his own future and what he can get out of what's left of this city."
As sad as that sounds, I think it's true. I don't think he even cares. It's like we're on the sinking Titanic and Nagin and his crew are dragging the ship's safe out to their private lifeboat (or yacht)...all the while yelling "It's that damn iceberg's fault this ship is sinking! Don't look at us, it's not our fault....we're heros!"
