I agree with you!!!! also just got done watching the news they found out that our own goverment worked faster to get supplies to the tidal wave victims back during Xmas then for our own people, if that true SHAME on our goverment
This is where I stand. When the Sunami hit we offered 20 million. We got Ridiculed by other Country's because they thought it was"nt enough. So we went to 80 million. Where the F--- is the rest of the world. We go out of our way to help everyone else wheres are payback. Mostly from the U.N.they are supposed to be on our side.
What about the looting ?
Any bets the National Guard Troops haven't even been given LIVE AMMO [mad]
There is an easy way to stop it ! Don't worry about where to put the arrested looters,
Just make the announcement :
" YOU LOOT, WE SHOOT "
Then do it !!!
WATCH OUT!!! my freakin blood is boilin over with our freakin govt. i say (REMEMBER THE BOSTON TEA PARTY). when are the people gonna wake up? and the hell with all this friggin political correctness crap!!!!!
Earlier this week, Hurricane Katrina devastated communities along the Gulf Coast of the United States, causing hundreds of deaths and disrupting the lives of millions of people in the region. We have been grateful to learn that our employees in the area are safe, but unfortunately, some have seen their homes damaged or destroyed by the storm. It has been great to see that Honeywell employees everywhere have asked what they can do to help.
The company is taking several steps to get involved in relief efforts, and we are committing a total of $500,000 to fund multiple programs that will help those who have been affected. Our company will contribute $100,000 up-front to the Honeywell Humanitarian Relief Fund and will also match employee donations dollar-for-dollar to the fund. Monies collected by the fund will be used first to support Honeywell employees in the affected area whose primary residence has been damaged or destroyed. Any remaining funds will be used to support local fire and emergency squads whose resources have been depleted by their heroic efforts to rescue survivors. Instructions on how to donate are below.
In addition, we are making the company’s Sikorsky 76 helicopter and its supporting air and ground crews available to the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to help with search and rescue and emergency supply efforts.
Over the coming days, we will identify and support additional community rebuilding projects in affected Honeywell communities such as Baton Rouge and Geismar. We plan to underwrite the costs associated with specific projects once local efforts turn from search and rescue to rebuilding. You can expect updates on these priorities on the Honeywell Intranet in the coming weeks.
In the wake of this tragedy, there is much we can do as individuals to help those who were affected rebuild their homes and recover their lives. I encourage you to join me in doing what you can for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
