Your Right Hand Thief

Your Right Hand Thief

Your Right Hand Thief from Nola brings us Louisiana folks some hopeful news. Congressman JIndal is predicitng passage of Oil Revenue Sharing bill in the Senate. Like Right Hand Thief,I hope his optimism is well placed.

I am not to pleased that Louisiana is not getting more of what is really its fair share. More money needs to be devoted to this awesome problem of Coastal Erosion. Jindal and others have gotten us farther than any other politician has in 30 years on this important issue.

I encountered Mary Landrieu once when she was was campaigning. I told her that she and then Senator John Breaux should filibuster the whole damn Senate till this Coastal erosion problem was addressed. You think that is extreme? Well I think the fact that for years we have been losing land the size of a football field every 38minutes is pretty important. If there is ever a reason to filibuster and bring the Senate to a halt till a serious problem is addressed, I can't think of one better than this one.

Conservative Cajun has all the links on his sidebar that address this issue and how it effects even people in Landlocked Nebraska.

It is definitely well past time for LA to get its fair share of oil revenue!!!

However, the problem with coastal erosion is that the rivers aren't allowed to overflow in the way that the delta was built in the first place due to all the levies. I don't know if the power of the gulf can be contained without using the power of the rivers which would mean mass evacuations of southern LA.

It will be a problem for a long time and the money from oil would definitely help the state regardless of it goes to coastal erosion or some other place.

Well I think River diertion is going to have to part of it or at least partial river divertion so all the sediment doesnt just keep going off the shelf. That of course is where it gets expensive and your right some tough choices will have to made as to communitites
