Put your money where your mouth is, motherfuckers.

Posted by Anntichrist S Coulter on February 25, 2007 – 3:38 am

Watched the second half of “When The Levees Broke” with the director’s commentary today. Had a small epiphany.

Since we obviously can’t rely on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for SHIT, we REALLY can’t trust the U.S. gubmint for a MOTHERFUCKING THING, and the “progress” of “rebuilding” New Orleans and the levee system is moving slower than Ray Nagin’s brain, WE GOTTA FIX THIS SHIT.
There were over 171 miles of levee destroyed during & after Katrina & Rita. So, we find 171 people with money (can you say “OPRAH”?!??!?!) and get ‘em to throw a million each at actually DOING SOMETHING, apart from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ generations after generations of BAND-AIDs, to REALLY fucking BUILD THOSE LEVEES UP TO WHERE IN THE HELL THAT THEY NEED TO BE, and then we’ll never see thousands of Americans murdered by their own government again. Yuppies & celebrities “buy” miles” of highway all over this country, to help pay for trash pickup and maintenance, so why can’t we sell miles of the levees??? A million a mile, that ought to at LEAST make SOME difference. Sure as hell can’t be hard to do better than the gubmint and their no-bid contractors have done SO FAR. Fuck Boh Bros., fuck The Shaw Group, fuck Halliburton & Bechtel. We find the people who can REALLY do the job, we get the money we need (which NOLA & the Gulf Coast will never fucking SEE from this regime, except for Haley Barbour and Trent Lott, of course), and we GET THIS SHIT DONE RIGHT.

I sent the following letter to Levees.org, and I’m talking to their executive director/founder, Sandy Rosenthal, in e-mail about this idea. Cross yer fingers, kids, we might be able to get this shit done for real. And pass the word, wouldjaplease? THIS AIN’T OVER AND IT WON’T BE OVER UNTIL THIS SHIT IS MADE RIGHT.

And when we live in a country that is more concerned with boutique/custom-mutated PETS than they are about the thousands of animals who died in Katrina, when we live in a country that is more concerned with Britney Spears’ CUNT than they are with a girl who’s obviously having a nervous breakdown from post-natal depression, when we live a country that ABANDONS ITS VETERANS and STILL PUSHES *FOR* THIS CLUSTERFUCK OF A WAR, when we live in a country that STOOD BY AND WATCHED as their “president” withheld help for SIX FUCKING DAYS as THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS DIED and suffered and are STILL DYING FROM THE EFFECTS OF THAT NIGHTMARE — we are a country that is sorely in need of a fucking wake-up call. We live in a country that has to seriously reconsider its “priorities.” And this is as good a place to start as any.

Hello y’all:

As I’m sitting here watching “When The Levees Broke,” I saw some grafitti with your web address, and went and signed-up. And an idea struck me, as the film is discussing the money that the state of Louisiana could generate via oil & gas revenues, to restore the wetlands and build the levees PROPERLY for a change (especially felt Garland Robinette’s remarks) — why can’t we “sell” miles of levee to corporate sponsors, maritime millionaires, oil & gas carpetbaggers, and to the celebrities who dropped-off a few supplies and then split? Yes, a lot of celebrities and people of note stuck with New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, and a lot of them busted their asses to help when Ray Nagin and his controllers ran & hid in San Antonio and elsewhere. So don’t you think that they’d be open to an idea that would be more than a band-aid on this problem?

Many communities have done very well by having “sponsors” for miles of highway that need attention, so since there were over 171 miles of levees that broke during & after Katrina & Rita, a similar program to cover everything that the Corps of Engineers won’t should be of great help. “Buy A Mile Of Levee.” The richest 1% of people in this country keep getting tax cuts, just for being rich, without reinvesting in their communities or their neighbors, by shipping jobs overseas and putting more Americans into the “service industry” because they’ve gotten even wealthier by taking from everyone else. Time for them to pony-up, I’d say. Hit every movie star, every TV character, every politician in a campaign, every photo-op-craving public servant. Get them to fork over a million dollars a mile for those levees — they have two or three homes, let them cut back a tad to help people save their ONLY homes. Get George Clooney onto their asses, get Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, get OPRAH to do more than drive down here with her entourage.

I hope that y’all will consider this idea, which I give to Levees.org freely and hopefully. If you’d like my help to nag people into doing this, please let me know, because I’ve done it before, and could probably stir up some interest in something this important. I’ve got a few good friends out there in the blogosphere who have helped me raise money for Katrina victims as they were shuffled through the shelters, who helped me to raise money for a friend who is dying of neurofibromatosis. Granted, my online persona is a more than polarizing one, but I’ll happily work from “behind the scenes” or however is necessary to get this done. I’ve lived in Louisiana for 35.5 of my 36 years, and I spent 12 of them in New Orleans, the city itself. And I’ll never stop wanting to go home to New Orleans, or stop wanting to wreak some justice upon the heads of those who did this to my true home. Yes, most of the celebritantes and politicos are already wrapped-up in the campaigns, talking about “national” issues, when they don’t realize that this levee system IS a national issue, that this genocide was PURPOSEFUL and that “our” government is NOT going to fix this or do what needs to be done. So we’ve got to do it for ourselves, and how better than to utilize the biggest American resource: The MEDIA — ? They want our money for performing, for entertaining, for distracting us from the rest of life, but what do they give back? What have they done to help? Granted, it’d be nice to hit-up the Allstates and the State Farms and all of the other insurance operators who gutted this state, but I won’t hold my breath for that kind of miracle.

Spike Lee did a great work with this film, so why don’t we see if we can parlay that awareness, that truth, into a REAL solution? If we can get the help of artists such as Spike and other filmmakers who’ve covered Katrina, if we can get the public activism reach of organizations like those featured in the film (Urban League, etc.), then we can MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE. We can make damned sure that this horror never happens again, as it never should have happened in the first place, or in 1928.

I will be featuring your work and your website on my blog, and hope to direct more attention, involvement, and donations your way.

Thank you for your time & attention,
“Anntichrist S. Coulter”

    What a great idea!!! Leave it to you to come up with it. This might have some real potential, especially with corporations that make a lot of money in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.

    What about some of the big Casino corporations? Maybe some of the music labels? Of course all the oil companies should buy miles and miles just for the great PR.

    Great idea, you go girl.

    Well, haven’t heard from them since I posted this, so let’s hope that they do at least take the idea “under consideration.” I’ll let y’all know if I hear anything else.

    (Note that I’m not holding my breath.)

    Darlin’, I’ve been afraid to go to this joint, as I used to be afraid of the Vietnam movies, like Platoon or Hamburger Hill, without Arnold along to hold my hand; I’d get the fuckin’ vapours for sure, especially stone sober, an unusual state for me, but presently profitable, and I take to the hills on mah arthritic frame with an RPD, which initials for a Soviet bloc (Chinese) Light Machinegun (LtMG) allows sound more authentic in my mind in Vietnamese.

    How the fuck did “always” get to be “allows”; I aint that fuckin’ easy to me.

  5. 5. Anntichrist S. Coulter Said:

    Suck it up, Johnie. We ALL need to watch that Spike Lee joint.

  6. 6. johnieb Said:

    I know I do, I know–I just have to be more careful about how I approach some things, you know? Otherwise, I’ll stay in the bunker and not come out, which I’ve been making a better effort than usual at lately; haven’t even thought about sniping at civilians for over a month. Go on; tell me: you’re impressed, right?

  7. 7. Anntichrist S. Coulter Said:

    Hell, I think about sniper rifles every damned day, johnie, abstinence isn’t so much an accomplishment as it is about lack of momentum. If I could outrun ANYBODY, much less cops, it’d be a very different world today.
