Message From Grand Isle





I witnessed something yesterday I wanted to share with my friends. It was disappointing to say the least but not at all surprising. As most know, no as all know I am slightly literally challenged and do not write a letter that will ever get me recognized as a witty author or overly educated person but I think I usually get my message across. By the way kids stay in school and pay attention in English so you do not have this problem and also thank God for spell check. Back to my point, I was in Grand Isle yesterday when we were visited by our president. As a lot know our street has about a dozen camps, one permanent resident, on it and yesterday we had a fair crowd of people. The first incident that was brought to my attention was four bus loads of, I guess you could call them workers, was spotted at the Bridge Side marina and looked as if they had come from New Orleans and not the most desirable workers if you get my drift. For you that do not know Bridge Side is the first marina coming onto Grand Isle and this is where the buses stopped and the WORKERS got off. I later witnessed not four but five buses pass our street on Hwy 1 going to the end of the island our president was to visit. I made a statement to my neighbors they were probably going to stage a senerio where a large amount of people were working on our oil spill problem and guess what, I was right. Liz and I witnessed this on one of the specials when I got home and a large number of men had rakes and were dressed in white hazardous suits working on the beach. No one has seen these guys before yesterday and no one can find them now. I was told WWL is getting question after question about this today, go figure our leader not being truthful and staging something like this.



The next thing I really found astonishing was no on cared that he was on the island. I later saw 38 cops on motorcycles, yes I did count them, and many other police vehicles escort what I am sure was the president in his motorcade of black suburbans. I was told he landed in Fouchon, about 10 miles from Grand Isle, then was brought to Grand Isle in the motorcade. I did see his helicopter and the escorts fly north of us to meet him at the Coast Guard facility were he spoke. My point is when he went down hwy 1 not one person made an attempt to see him. There was no one taking pictures, no one even looking in his direction, no one lining the streets and waving flags, no one cared. I really think if that had of been any of our prior presidents, even Clinton , an attempt would have been made to be along the side of the road and cheer or wave. It is really sad that this country is being run by a man no one likes or has any respect for. God help us get through the change.

They pull some unbelievable crap to make people world wide think they have a following and that the American people support them...

I didn't vote for him; my husband didn't vote for him. It was NOT because he was black. It WAS because we didn't believe any of his folderol about how he would change America for the better. He's been president almost 18 months and never in my 63 and 3/4 years have I wanted to see the back of anyone going out the door of presidency faster than I want to see this ineffectual psuedo-leader leave office. Don't get me wrong, me may be a wonderful person who really cares about ALL Americans but I've yet to see it. Just my humble opinion but I'm sticky by it.

You don't see any of that crap that they were giving him when he was voted into office....people holding candles and swaying back and forth and people crying because their man was IN. Where is all THAT today? What a bunch of crap.
