Hurricane Joe 🌀
@Neil Patel or at least redirected the hurricane with a sharpie.
@Roger Out 😆
@Geff Joldblum But he hasn’t been able to tweet for months because they look put the child in a timeout??
@Roger Out Geff Joldblum is a pathetic troll,report and ignore
I like Presidents that don’t have hurricanes.
Is Democrat Mayor Ray Nagin still in jail?
He got out early because of covid. He is serving his time at home with an ankle monitor
Hey PRIVATE wrench,you more than likely never served,except maybe waiting on tables. You sound like you are 12yrs old with untreated bipolar disease.
@targetservicer Tough question was it?
Why don’t the energy companies replace the existing grid with a system that doesn’t go out during a hurricane?
Yes, that’s Biden’s plan having been held up by Republicans.
@Angel Light Exactly, they could be burying those power lines now, as they bring power back, instead of replacing telephone poles! If they can put power lines across the ocean, they can do it here.
The problem of burying power lines in an area that has a high water table, water and electricity don’t mix.
We need cottage industries of people building home-scale alternative energy products. Forget solar panels and lithium batteries, keep it simple with wind, wet cell deep cycles, and passive solar systems – rain catchment for drinking water in times of disaster, and home gardens and small livestock –
@Charles Oberdorf It’s very expensive and the expense is passed on to customers and they don’t want to pay for it. I live in Florida. When you renovate or build they give you an option to bury your utilities.
I truly feel for those folks in Louisiana. I am in southwest Mississippi and it was rough for a few days without power but some of those folks have been devastated. Stay strong and don’t stop. You are still ‘here’ and have a chance for tomorrow. Take care and be safe.
Impeach and arrest Joe Biden
Bitter ’cause your man was twice impeached.
Banned from Twitter, Snapchat, FB, Instagram & Banned from Whitehouse.
If your president Trump isn’t in prison yet for being a conman crook less is our president going to jail for doing his job and he does care about the American people not for fraudulent crimes like Trump buckle up butter cup
I wish other corporate representatives spoke as succinctly as he does
Very direct and well detailed answers
At least Louisiana’s wind turbines didn’t black out the whole state unlike Texas. 😆
DEMENTIA JOE thinks that TRUMP is our president. He is waiting for TRUMP to go to New Orleans and bring help. Meanwhile DEMENTIA JOE is on vacation….
@JKD Studio Seditious Traitors are
Hateful, lying, vile & repulsive
Mike has no life other than posting lies on social media.
Biden is on the ground in LA right now.
Just because you say it, doesn’t make it so. Better check your pants, they are on fire!
Good thing they don’t rely on wind energy. Hundreds more would have died from flying windmill blades, and no power for months.
Hopefully they learned a lesson from Terrible Treasonous Texass.
I guess people can’t live on cost anymore.
Even if it is home, it’s not worth having to start over every other year due to hurricanes, you can make a home elsewhere, where you wont be in jeopardy of losing everything.
By saying this you don’t understand New Orleans and the people who live there.
@Terri Morris the only thing to understand is that they are crazy to live there when they keep losing everything when they can live elsewhere without worry. That’s what smart people would do, long as they stay there they gone lose more than trump has.
“We have decided to follow President Biden’s lead on green house gases, so we will forgo using fossil fuels any more”, Louisiana Energy Company representative.
Having lived/worked abroad for > 25 yrs., find far too many American not interested in critical thinking and if you bring up a topic they interpret to be anti-American, you are ridiculously branded as a ‘traitor’.
So, destruction from Sandy, Ida, getting lost in the 1/6 lies, electing bloviating gruff politicians are what you get when you fight so many senseless wars, do not invest in your nation’s infrastructure & its own people…Sad
I’ll keep an eye out for your posts and if I agree with your ideas I will bolster them
take the insurance payments, downsize and put solar panels on your roof
Louisiana Energy company ought to be investing huge money to mitigate climate change conditions since they no doubt have done very little with the scientific evidence they would know is causing these extreme events rather than greenwashing!
President Biden is doing a good job as president but the people are never satisfied damages can’t be fix over never it takes months maybe years.
All those troupes from Afghanistan. could they not be deployed to help out?
I can’t believe the flooding in Louisiana. It must be so depressing for these poor folks, having to be evacuated from their homes. The only positive out of this tragedy, is that there is a Government who is actually helping them.
Our response needs to be better as well as future prevention.
