"All right. You don't when Kanye went up on stage after Hurricane Katrina. And did the George Bush doesn't care about black people think he was a big hero for that big hero for that? Because the Democrats were painting, George W Bush as a racist because of the hurricane you may remember. Now democrat c Ray Nagin was the mayor of New Orleans at the time. And he's now we're not gonna use that Amtrak train to evacuate people. We're not gonna use school buses to evacuate people. In fact, we're going to leave those below water level, and let them be destroyed. We're gonna stay in party. We're going to stay party and its party now is a democrat. And then the mayor catha excuse me, the Guvener Kathleen Blanco who ended up on the ground crying in the fecal position. She wouldn't let the federal government in and she screwed up everything completely botched everything meanwhile, helicopters coastguard, and so on rescuing people all over the place national guard federal government action and. And then they wanted to blame George Bush for the hurricane. They wanna blame. George Bush for the Democrats evacuating they wanted to blame George Bush for everything that I wanted to call George Bush racist. So so cognac came out, and he helped with that caused George Bush doesn't care about black people. George Bush doesn't care about black people. That was the that was two point. Oh, now, we're on eight point nine or something like that. And that's fine. But then you may remember last year the hurricane that went through Puerto Rico and the Democrats decided that they would try to make Donald Trump out to be a racist. Because a hurricane hit Puerto Rico networks so well with Katrina in New Orleans that they just trotted out that old play and ran it against Donald Trump. Oh, you're a race. You don't care about Brown people. And then you may remember what was the number sixty four people were killed in the hurricane until in Puerto Rico until George Washington University. Sunk their teeth and intuitive bunch of white liberals inside the beltway. They've figured out. How many people really died in Puerto Rico during hurricane and it was times. What was it times forty six? I think right. It was whatever the real number was times forty six and they multiplied, and they had almost three thousand I think it was two thousand nine hundred and seventy five deaths that's from memory so to hold me to it. But I think that's what George Washington University came up with nearly three thousand dead when in reality. But Puerto Rico said they had sixty four that were killed. And and and and it was just it was just great. It was the playbook. Well, he doesn't care because how dare he throw paper towels to people who are yelling throw me, those paper towels and the news media's very upset about that. They they wet their panties over that. That was just the men and and very upset. And now we've had hurricane Michael go through. And I don't know what they are still formulating. The media are the response to all of this my pants. But I think they're going to have to find a way as I understand it way. Now, the I think official count of number of people killed and hurricane Michael is eleven is eleven and I assume that the Democrats will go to George Washington University asked them to multiply by Forty-six and come up with a new number for that. Except here. I guess we know how to count it's, you know. And I think the Democrats the soft bigotry of low expectation, they think well Brown people in Puerto Rico. They don't know how to count we'll count for them. We'll count it's the honestly they just they hold everyone in such low regard. There's such racists. I also have a Matthew Shepard story that I hope to get to today..

"Lou you're on the Michael berry show thanks for Halloween oh you bet Michael one of. My stories is about governor Kathleen Blanco who you. Might say well what's the big deal just another incompetent democrat governor but I think she made one of the. Dumbest decisions in the whole of Katrina Van aluminum story WalMart had sent, a, fleet of trucks loaded? With food water, eight people. In the Superdome and the trucks were stopped at a state police barricading law loss Fringe of. New Orleans exactly yeah and the police calls in the governor's. Office said no. We can't let those trucks in there, we're trying to get, those people out of the Superdome they'll never leave if we feed them and give them water So I was kind of a cold hearted Decision in itself or a guy who took the brunt. Of all stuff ring blame was George Bush Wouldn't make like dumb the station so of people like mayor Nagin and governor Blanco but the. Flipside of that story is volunteered at the Asheville saw how well run it was manage propane order people were fed and housed. And well taken care off And. There was a nonstop nail smut oh yobbo burning so people coming in saying this is pep boys or whoever we. Need in April right now we'll put you, to work I was very very impressed with how. We manage that operation on our on so the. Contrast was just nothing but incompetence from Nagin and Blanco versus how good a job we did in Houston when. We have the evacuees in our astrodome that's my story You know I was on city council. In Houston I was marriage pro tem when. Katrina happened I remember that and I was not in local government when when, Harvey hit but I can tell you that from our perspective, in Houston how we handle the evacuees now in fairness to, New Orleans it is a lot easier when you are not in when you are, not flooded and your complete power grid is is operational to absorb a massive number of people that that's a whole lot easier thing to do than to try to run the city as. They were but I was extremely, proud of I was extremely let me say this I was proud of. Our government and how we performed During Katrina I was, proud but I. Was extraordinarily proud at. How this community reacted and it was something to behold George r Brown was opened up Because there were so many evacuees who came George Brown was opened, up and the city was operating George Brown and, the county was operating the dome and, there's a lot of ego involved and there's a lot of credit. That's going to be handed around so you get county judge versus the different county judge in. The county judge versus the mayor and and so there is a certain amount of You know preening for the. Cameras but what goes unnoticed is how many people How many churches especially Second Baptist was was the one. That really stuck out and. That's my home, church so I'm bragging but second baptises one that show. That really stuck out Lakewood sent, a lot of, folks The number of volunteers who came through. Church organizations to tend to. These people's needs, with water and food the number of people who literally. Opened their homes to the evacuees And I'm going to. Be completely honest not every incident turned out well not not every situation had a positive ending the there were situations where people. Took in some evacuees, were not good people and, at a, minimum they stole from them and in to a worse extent that there were deeper problems as you might. Expect but I really saw am I continue to see you know I was talking to a guy I don't talk to as, much in the morning I'm Kevin whited and, he used, to run a thing. Called blog Houston, they used to? Cover politics when I was in politics and I was talking about a healthy cynicism and how a healthy cynicism, is a good thing but that I have come to learn since my, children, came into my life that a healthy cynicism skepticism might be, a better questioning everything assuming nothing not, being led by pollyanna belief. But, trust but. Verify Canada deal and I said. You know what what my what having kids has taught me is that if. You are naturally predisposed to skepticism or downright cynicism skepticism being asking the question and not just taking everything at face value cynicism. Believing the worst and, to the best until better, is proven That you will, make yourself into a miserable person and. And one of the things I've learned, there were problems I will tell. You the some of the Katrina evacuees were some. Awful human beings when they came to us they just were and nobody. Wants to say that because they were predominantly black and that's somehow racial statement the truth is the truth regardless of the skin color and I know, that I come every issue completely objective and impartial and so I don't have to worry if I see a black person beating up another, person then I say that black person is, a say, that that guy is. A bad guy, whether it's because? He's black or despite him being black or without regard to him being black his behavior is bad and I, believe is behaviors bad if he's beaten up a white guy I find, it, to be equally bad if he's beaten up a black guy But I have come, to learn there were people who were disillusioned by their experience dealing with Harvey Noticing that. There was a series of stories where I think. These people were given, two or three thousand dollars I want to say it was three. But twos also in my mind, the vacuums were given two, and three thousand dollars in the. Story hit that night on the news local news here in Houston That The Louis Vitton the was it to protest at the. Protestant There was a line. Of evacuees outside the product store buying purses Sakano thing that becomes an urban myth of though I was assured that it. Was, actually true. That the strip clubs that it was. Oh my goodness you thought it rained in New, Orleans they were making it rain at the strip clubs and then you you then ask yourself the question because the evacuees were predominantly people. From places like the ninth ward where they were poor what happens when poor person who's lost everything and, is being housed in a facility in a public place Five six hours west in Houston what happens when you give them three grand what do they do Do they begin making arrangements to. Get a job and start a new life make sure they have the clothing and supplies and things they need safety insecurity insured for housing for at least the next thirty days till they get their first paycheck or do they. Go blow it. In the strip club, you'd like to hope for the former and maybe ninety percent it was true it was the former but you also have to recognize in many cases it was, the ladder and and that begs the question how many people are poor because they make poor, choices how many people are making the kinds of choices that even if you gave them more money, they, wouldn't be able to to. Make the right decisions to put themselves in? A better situation.

"Kathleen Blanco is a licensed psychotherapist she's been very gracious. To give us a her time and insight today A lot of folks. Are asking a lot of questions as it relates to the findings in the grand jury that are, horrific and we trying to get our arms in some. Ways around how. That happens and more and Kathleen. Let me start off with the addictive nature of this in your estimate Well sexual addiction lights up. The brain in the same way as heroin addiction does same places in the brain or lit up and what happens is. The brain gets flooded with dopamine and the brain likes that so it wants more dopamine but unfortunately the more dopamine, against and the brain gets confused and start shutting, down dopamine so now we have the brain. Needs more and more to get, the same buzz and sex addiction is not. About sex it's about getting the buzz and this is sometimes it's been a, and then what happens once you get this buzz then it starts altering the way the brain works and it shuts down areas of the brain. It increases the sympathetic nervous system and that is the fight or flight response and the fight or, flight response shuts down the front part of the brain which is the The prefrontal cortex and it's in the prefrontal cortex that we have all, the human qualities That's where we have impulse control that's where we have compassion and empathy and good decision making executive order functioning and the ability to know that our con- our behavior has consequences, and the ability to know that our behavior affects other people, and all of those y the wiring to the, prefrontal cortex is loosened or even disengage and the wiring to the primitive. Brain is strengthened, and it's in the primitive, brain that we have this me me me it's all about I want what I want and I want it now it's. Very ego Centric and it's, also connected to the fight or flight response and survival mechanism so that's why the this the urges, to do this or. So. Overpowering because it, feels like if I don't get this buzz I'm going to die okay so go ahead Okay so I, guess there's a little. Bit. Unpack there so In essence this is. Not. Related to the priests themselves this is about sexual.

"Uh did not reach out quickly enough kathleen blanco and fema didn't arrive on the scene until you know four or five days after the flood came and it was too late to help down in texas we had instead the the president of the united states donald trump signed an emergency federal declaration fema was on the ground operating with a full team 48 hours before herbie ever made lampl that has made all the difference so we should in some way be celebrating that bureaucracy actually learned something from the failures ra and james you'd say one of the of the things it's going to be telling is not just the response to the emergency in evacuating people but rebuilding and i think our guests is that the same thing that people are deriding about houston the lack of zoning the um low regulation mo taxes that's gonna make it a lot easier for them to recover much more quickly right rather than getting bogged down as as has happened in other uh in other areas well we've seen this brazilian senna i think it also was just watching what people have been able to do on their own without the government direction without government management ottawa give our congress pause before the uh uh simply start does spending money the uh the uh we're seeing private uncoordinated decentralised activity very effective getting assistance to the people who need it when they need it in the places they needed and and i think uh that's a that's a lesson i i'm not counting on it because i think now the uh the impulses to spend spend spend but i i think uh you would hope by some members of congress might say you know maybe a maybe some good things will happen if the federal government just kind of stays out of the way maybe will learn from texas were talking about uh the flood in houston in you're listening to potomac watch from the wall street journal.
