    The original post was about a news article on the shortage of nurses. The article stated how crime wasn't a concern, and I beg to differ with that assessment. For a city it's size it is a murder metropolis. New Orleans and Louisiana in general are very poor areas and depend heavily on government subsisidies. Everday I see Ray Nagin on TV demanding more and more from the government. High crime and corruption are the hallmarks of New Orleans always has and always will be.
    Of course anyone being killed isn't funny. I myself had a close family member murdered (shot multiple times). And you'd be suprised to know that it didn't happen in Louisiana at all, years before Katrina!


    Now what you keep saying, and how you are trying to manipulate the situation however is laughable, and is becoming more hilarious by the moment.

    It's funny. It seems like we read two different articles, as the one that I read repeatedly stated that crime IS a major concern.

    Any for a city "it's size", again it is an urban city that is also a party city. Crime is abundant always has been, always will be period. Now if you were a New Orleanian I would say, if you think the great city that is was and will be again isn't worth the crime element, well move to Metairie, Kenner, or somewhere else is JP, where crime is much much lower, but there will still be crime, as there is everywhere.

    "New Orleans and Louisiana in general are very poor areas", to this I would agree to an extent, but for the fact that your attempt was to be snide and discriminatory. I will say that you have obviously never
    spent too much if anytime is New Orleans, or Louisiana. If you had, you would find both the poor as well as the very affluent, like most other places.

    And of course Nagin is asking for money, the city did get hit by a major storm, and because of the levees that the government didn't take care of when they were warned our bowl shaped city was filled with water, and people just sat here and died. Did anyone forget that? Hmmmmm..... Now let me try to explain, since the city was filled with water, private and government building and people's homes got "really, really messed up". Now since when stuff gets messed up it has to get fixed the problem, is that people don't have the money to fix stuff, cause they didn't have insurance, their insurance companies, and deying their claims, and you know stuff like that. Since the people can't come home, the city isn't make money off of taxes and stuff, so it doesn't have the money it needs to fix it's buildings, pay it's employees, and fix lights and stuff. And that's why the mayor has to ask for money. Everybody understand now?"

    AND NOW BACK TO MY ADULT VOICE.

    Now the question has to be asked again, WHO said that New Orleans, didn't have crimes or corruption issues. You keep throwing that up, as if I am saying that it is incorrect. What I said, one more time was:

    The crime in New Orleans, is now, always has been, and sadly most likely always will be because of the fact that it is an urban city, that is a party spot. It has nothing to do with being a "nanny state", if that were the case many of my fellow New Orleanians would not still be struggling right now, because "nanny" would have a bottle in our mouths.
    In response to you blaming crime on why our city is still struggling.

    I believe the crime in New Orleans is a very valid concern. New Orleans is a prime example of the devastation that the "nanny state" leaves people. People in these areas can't and won't do for themselves because the government has always done it for them. Now you see the end result.
    Okay, as a New Orleanian, born and raised, I think I have something to say about this. The crime in New Orleans, is now, always has been, and sadly most likely always will be because of the fact that it is an urban city, that is a party spot. It has nothing to do with being a "nanny state", if that were the case many of my fellow New Orleanians would not still be struggling right now, because "nanny" would have a bottle in our mouths.

    This is the type of thing that p*sses me off.

    Where in the world do you get off speaking on something that you don't know about?

    So basically our city is still in shambles b/c we are lazy criminals that won't do for ourselves in a lawful manner. Bull !!!...

    This Post was a lot longer ,but I think it's best that I stop here, and leave it at that.
