iReporters in the eye of the storm

 

Several iReporters who live in the Gulf Coast have decided to stay home and ride out Hurricane Gustav, and they've become part of CNN's television coverage of the storm, bringing live updates to CNN networks since last night. Cody Heitmeier , who waited out the storm in New Orleans, Louisiana, told CNN's Rick Sanchez that he has confidence in emergency officials. "They're not gonna' let down the city," he said. Another iReporter, Heather Says of Lafayette, Louisiana, explained to CNN.com Live that most of her neighbors opted to wait it out. And Meredith Carlson says she's staying in Baton Rouge, helping to evacuate pets from the path of the storm. Pretty amazing if you ask me -- field reporters and residents working together to show the rest of the world what's happening in the Gulf Coast as yet another hurricane barrels through.

I ALSO BELIEVE CAYLEE IS DEAD. MY THEORY IS:

 

IN FLORIDA THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF FRESH WATER LAKES, ESPECIALLY GOLF COURSES AND ALL SIZES OF GATORS! THAT IS WHERE THE BODY HAS BEEN DUMPED AND THERE WILL BE NO TRACE UNLESS YOU DRAIN THE PONDS OR SMALL LAKES, OH, DON'T FORGET THE MANY CANALS.

 

SORRY TO SPECULATE THIS

Why isn't the media drawing attention to the fact that the city of New Orleans is preparing to host a football game instead of preparing to welcome its citizens home.  Without power does Nagin think area residents are going to WATCH the game.  With very few gas stations open people are not going to DRIVE to the game.  People have more important things on their minds and the POLITICIANS  should remember why they are employed!!!!!!

Sarah Palin is clearly allowing John McCain and the Republican Party to exploit her children; and what makes it so bad, they are doing it before the world.  What happened to the issue of teenage pregnancy running ramped in America. There were only 3 messages sent loud and clear by John McCain, Sarah Palin and Republican Party; they are; 1)"Teen Age Pregnancy is OK As Long As They Have Family Support"! 2)Flaunt Your Pregnant Teenager And Be Proud Of It"!. 3)It's Ok To Be Teenage, Pregnant,and Proud; As Long As Your Boyfriend Is By Your Side and Agree To Marry You; that is; When You Become An Adult. At least we know where Sarah Palin really,really stands; "Fame Before Privacy".  The Media has also been drawn in to this farce by not addressing the real issue which is "TEENAGE PREGNANCY". This is a disgrace and definitely not positve for America's teens.

WOW! What a breath of fresh air, Sarah blows Obama away! I have NEVER been so excited about a Vice-Presidential candidate. She will be an excellent Vice-President and a GREAT President in 2016 when she is elected President. Nearly everyone I've talked to about Sarah has only positive things to say about her, and I live in a Democratic state. Even some Hilary supporters here are saying good things about Sarah Palin. I can't wait until November!

 

It seems as though every time the media attacks her, she only gains more sympathy and support. Thank you Liberal media, and please, please, keep up the Palin attacks. The latest polls show that Sarah is now more popular that Obama, Biden, and even her running mate John McCain. Thanks for all your help in making Sarah Palin the subject of every dinner table conversation in America.

I think the right wing beat the media again just like the days that led to the Iraq war, we were called unpatriotic.  Now we are called insensitive we ask question about Sarah Palin.  Wake up guys and show some back bones, just like Oprah who refuse to give up to the accusation her staff was fighting about Sarah Palin; the propaganda was designed to push Oprah to invite Sarah Palin.

Hillary Clinton has to say good things about Obama. She really doesn't have a choice. She knows darn well that he no more has the qualifications to run the USA than the man on the moon. Anyone that refuses to Pledge Alligiance to the very country that he wants to be elected President of is bad news!! It infuriates me to see him not put his hand over his heart when the Pledge of Allegiance is being recited or the National Anthem is being played. So many people are wanting him to be President just because his black and that would what, make it a unique occasion? We need to elect someone with the experience and knowledge of the issues at hand. I'm not even sure if McCain is the right person. I just know deep down that if Obama is elected we will be in deep trouble. God help us!

Hey there

I am a little troubled with Sarah Palin; Not only she believe the Iraqi war is a Holy War, but she also said that we might as well attack Russia.  I cannot imagine her in control of our nuclear arsenal.

I'm astonished that no one has made the connection between healthcare and the ailing failing economy.

Having been involved and I mean really in the thick of it as a past business owner, a union member, a blue & white collar employee also employed in the healthcare profession, currently disabled with Parkinson's I can't think of anyone more qualified to draft healthcare bill more than I, so I did. You see the contention has always been , where would the money come from for a good universal healthcare system.

Under a single payer system, be it governmental agency or private (yes private, I would venture to suggest that a bid be presented for a system under these provisions) it would be supplemented as such: 20/20 by 20/20 universal healthcare system. that is a $20 per eligible +$20 per eligible from the state of residency + $20 per eligible from the federal Government + $20 per eligible derived from taxes imposed on any and all industries as contributing factors in the ill health of the nation such as oil, tobacco, coal etc..

That is $80 per month per individual + an $80 per employee per month matching contribution from all employers regardless of company size (very affordable), that is a total of $160 per month per eligible.

Eligibility: all American citizens and legal permanent residents ages 18 to 68 (some 210 million eligible's)all remaining citizens/residents are then covered automatically in the pool of eligible's coverage (the very young and the very old)in addition, all social security recipients would contribute $80 per eligible example: a family of 5 mom/dad/20yr old/16yr old & 70yr old grandma, the monthly collected coverage for this family would be $160X3 + $80 = $560 per month. No change in healthcare providers' status accept for cost cutting and necessary regulations such as the case in Medicare allowable now, and the desperately needed regulations in the piracy of the pharmaceutical industry in a fair manner. Should this system be implemented not only would every citizen/resident in the USA be fully covered, but the system would actually operate with a surplus budget. Under this system, prevention is the most important aspect of the plan thus every individual would have an annual physical and a health card (with info chip) would be issued to all and with an EMR system in effect all previous associated costs are eliminated, with that in mind we are going to have a healthy American work force, sick calls will be minimized, productivity will be up and so on..

This is a Universal Healthcare Bill.

My dear so misinformed so one sided and brainwashed friend. Let's get the facts straight once and for all and hopefully for the last time, Iraq and the Iraqis never did anything to us and our way of life , at no time were they a threat to the US or its citizenry ever, they never attacked us nor did they ever harm a single american prior to our invasion of their country. It was Osama bin laden a well known terrorist and his organization that harmed us and attacked our way of life on 9/11, and actually they were on saddam's shit list too.

so instead of going solely after them where they are , bush and his corporate crownies opted to invade and attack Iraq a much easier target and nothing else, its like if Mexico attacks the USA then we will really show them and put them in their place by attacking Canada.

Get it right already. Not only did we lose more than 3000 innocent lives stemming from the 9/11 attack on us but we inturn wasted nearly 4200 more lives not to mention more than 30,000 mamed young lives whom will never be the same, not to forget the more than 300,000 Iraqi lives we blew up with our airforce and arrogance. Not only this was a wrong war to fight but a very very bad one for the united states. As for the first time we were the aggressors, the killers of innocence instead the saviors of as were in past wars, that comes with a great cost that will take 100 years to mend and pay back.

In reply to Lecadd comments;

Thats ok, fear not my dear friend. The factions in referance as well as most of the population that voted Obama in are in post happy shock and it will soon wear off but lets not cheat them out of their over due and past due celebration. On the other hand let's examine the core of the candidate and now president elect, he certainly looks pleasantly of black origin but the truly

most of his up bringing was very white rooted, by very white self made upscale grandparents from behavior to idiology to values instilled in him, and I think through his marriage he really enhenced his black roots and knowledge to say that Obama was the best choice for a president of color to happen would be an understatement.

My take on Joe Lieberman;

There are 195 countries in the world and in at least 160 of them Lieberman would be facing a firing squad being charged with party treason. There has been many party cross over in the past most prominently was Ronald Reagan's from the Democratic to the republican party, and like Reagan's all were strictly change of venue and outright cross over. But Joe Lieberman's was a traitor's stance and had he been a spy he would be considered a double agent, in bed with one party while claiming allegiance with the other under a title of neither /nor, how untrustworthy and screwed up is that? There is an Italian saying that resonates "ala familia" meaning family first, and never ever side against the family right, wrong or in-different. Well the rabbit is out its time to get out of town Elmer Fudd.

PARTNERSHIP IN CHRIST JESUS

What does partnership mean? When I looked up partnership on Dictionary.com this is what it says:

 

Partnership

 

A relationship between individuals or groups that is characterized by mutual cooperation and responsibility, as for the achievement of a specified goal:

 

A good example is joining in partnership with Bishop James Winfree Ministries and Team. When you join you enter into a relationship with us and we are all about teamwork; we are a give-and-take ministry; where each partner gives what they have and Bishop James Winfree Ministries and Team gives what we have.

 

No one party is giving all the time to anyone who is just taking. Partnership is not just any one person taking all the time that is not teamwork. Teamwork is a cooperative effort by the members of a group or team to achieve a common goal

 

That, is what we here looking for here at Bishop James Winfree Ministries and Team, people who are willing to work with us in cooperative effort as a team to achieve to a common goal.

 

When you join you enter into Partnership with us and you are saying that I am willing to be in cooperation with this ministry. You are saying I am willing to give what I have just like the early Church did after the Holy Spirit fell upon the people.

 

They shared everything and no one was in lack of anything:

 

Acts 2:41-47

 

41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. 44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.

 

46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

 

Acts 4:29-37

 

29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus."

 

31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

 

32 Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. 33 And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. 34 Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, 35 and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.

 

36 And Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of Encouragement), a Levite of the country of Cyprus, 37 having land, sold it, and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

 

Now this was teamwork and God added to the Church daily.

 

What is Bishop James Winfree Ministries and Teams goal? To bring Unity and Equality to the Church, the Body of Christ, and we would like you to join us in partnership to achieve this goal.

 

2 Corinthians 8:11-15 (NKJV)

 

11 but now you also must complete the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to desire it, so there also may be a completion out of what you have. 12 For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have.

13 For I do not mean that others should be eased and you burdened; 14 but by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may supply their lack, that their abundance also may supply your lack—that there may be equality. 15 As it is written, "He who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack."

 

Luke 6:38

 

38 If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use in giving – large or small – it will be used to measure what is given back to you.

 

Whatever you have to offer this ministry and you are willing to give your talents, time, money and hard work, etc., we are willing give back to you our talents, time, money and hard work, etc., and we will see God increase the Church as He did for the Early Church.

 

Written with the Authority of Jesus Christ

And

With the Authority of Apostle James R. Winfree
