Contact YOUR Government

New Orleans and Louisiana needs all of your help in trying to focus the United States Government in the rebuilding of one of the most historic cities in America.

With information from outside of the city continuing to be either dubious or non-existent, for example - we are hearing that the United States Government is attempting to wrest control of South Louisiana from OUR duly elected representatives. This is OUTRAGEOUS.

Please take a moment and contact either your government officials or the ones below. Thanks for all your help.

Dennis Haster (R-IL) wants to bulldoze New Orleans - tell him what you think about that. •

Pete Domenici (R-NM) fought tooth and nail to deny Louisiana federal funding for flood protection and to restore the Louisiana Wetlands. •

John McCain (R-AZ) Ask the Senator to assist us in rebuilding New Orleans •

Hillary Clinton (D-NY) Ask the Senator to assist us in rebuilding New Orleans •

Joe Liberman (D-CT) Ask the Senator to assist us in rebuilding New Orleans •

The people of the United States are 100% behind you. You can't drive down the street here (suburb of Cincinnati) without passing numerous busy drop-off points for hurricane relief. I think I heard today on the news that $100 million had been donated to the Red Cross from everyday individuals (non-govt. funds). Please take care of yourself, keep posting, and know that the American people are doing everything we can to help.

I'm so glad to see that you are doing okay. Hopefully cell service and landlines will become more stable soon!

So glad that you were able to get supplies. Hang in there!

Sadly, most of these Senators will not accept or read mail from anyone but their constituents. I know this from previous attempts to contact both Senators Clinton and McCain.

I think the most effective means of expressing your outrage at Dennis Haster for the suggestion that NOLA be bulldozed is to vent this to the press. Email CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, ABC News, and CBS News. You might want to write a few letters to the editor for some of the nation's more prominent Newpapers (like the NY Times) as well.

Remember, Sherman burnt Atlanta to the ground, but Atlanta is still there. Major cities in Germany were bombed into oblivion, and they rose from the ashes. London rebuilt after the blitz. New Orleans will be rebuilt too.

God bless.

Galveston, Texas was wiped off the map in the 1900 storm. The entire city was raised 17 feet and rebuilt. We did it then, 105 years ago, it can be done today. We have the ability. Blessings from Houston, TX

Unfortunately, I agree the Feds should wrestle control from local officials.

The locall and state officials appear totally at a lost to handle this situation. Had the Feds allowed the state to evacuate the city. You would be looking at 20,000 dead!

You governor seems absolutley LOST!

Canadians here -- we're with you too.
I DO NOT agree that the feds should take over -- they have been the main source of the problems so far, and will be in the future I would think.

I'm not sure that I would see a problem with bulldozing to a point. There are a lot of areas that would be easier to start from scratch, than to try rebuilding what is there. Never forget what happened and build for the future this time, but still... It may just be easier to start from scratch.
