You are ****ing kidding, right? The Federal gov't has a role in trash removal in the city of New Orleans?
New Orleans, Hell, Louisiana as a state, has tolerated and turned a blind eye to a stunning amount of political corruption since its inception. That corruption has resulted in civic leaders woefully unqualified to serve. Most of the time that manifests itself in back room kick backs, graft, nepotism, and incompetence but the city can manage because people still visit. However, that all comes to a head when the shit hits the fan and the ****ing police take to looting and walking off the job. It hits the fan when those civic leaders flat panic in the face of their duty and shit the bed. Nawleans' lax attitude bordering on outright acceptance of political corruption bit them in the ass. The fact that they can't pick up their own ****ing trash is just a shining example of a sickening degree of dependency. Should the Feds also wipe their asses for them and change their diapers?
“You may think RaiderH8r is just a thinker. But I’m not just a thinker. I’m a doer. Every day I go out there, and rev that engine, fire it up, grab a hold of that line between speed and chaos, and wrestle it to the ground like a demon cobra. And when the fear rises up in my belly, I use it. Fear is powerful, because it’s been there for billions of years. And it is good. And I use it. And I ride it; I ride it like a skeleton horse through the gates of hell.”
