Rosie on da' Donald

Tara Conner was given a second change by da Donald.  Personally, I really didn’t care.  I think that Rosie is completely right.  Donald is a media hound.  He loves to be in the spotlight.  Donald ain’t a moral authority and it ain’t 1955.  A 20 yo adult single female who is drop dead goregous should be doing what in the Donald’s mind?  Studying Shakespeare?  Studying to be his private secretary? 

Here’s a clip of Rosie on The View telling it like it is.  I cut off Donald Trump’s air time just because he is an egomaniac who doesn’t need time on my blog.  I know, I should be fair and I should.  But he gets on my nerves too.

CEO bonuses

I’m sorry but I had to post this video.  How much was your bonus?  Now, I’m not against money.  As a matter of fact, I like money.  I like nice things but the reason that the middle class is having a terrible time is because the wealth is not being shared.  A few folks are hording all of the money. 

New Orleans – Sewer system needs a lot of work

From Nola:

A long-awaited report sizing up the post-storm condition of New Orleans’ water, wastewater and drainage systems said it will take $5.7 billion to repair the massive infrastructure systems — much of which the Sewerage & Water Board has no idea how it will finance.

The 92-page report by management consultant Black & Veatch, delivered Wednesday to board directors, offers the most comprehensive picture to date of the massive task of rebuilding the city’s winding web of pipes, pumps and canals, a job consultants estimate will take 25 years.

It also includes a detailed request for additional money from the Louisiana Recovery Authority to cover a gap of nearly $1 billion between estimated near-term repair costs and federal rebuilding aid that has already been approved.

It seems that we, as a nation, are going to let New Orleans and the Gulf Coast wallow in their misery.  Funding for this huge project is coming from where?  Federal government can’t even do the simple things.
