Greetings On-Line Family:

HurricaneGustov1.jpg (18447 bytes)  Our hearts go out to the residents of New Orleans, as well as to the residents of the many cities on the Gulf Coast who are suffering from the effects of Hurricane Gustov – Houma, Morgan City and Thibodeau to name a few.  It’s a relief that Gustov weakened to a Category Two storm when it arrived in Louisiana, but really didn’t do major destruction.  However, it was certainly strong and “packed several good punches”, dropping intense amounts of rain, with its approximately 110 mph powerful winds that downed trees, ripped roofs off homes and business, snapped power lines, flooded areas and even produced approximately 8-12 feet storm surges, as well as tornados. Unfortunately, approximately 94 people lost their lives and several thousands are homeless as Gustov passed over Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cayman Island and Cuba, and then slammed into the United States on Labor Day 9/1/08.

Currently in New Orleans the tens of thousands who were ordered to evacuate the city prior to Gustov’s arrival are returning to their homes.  Unfortunately, about 50% (actually 700,000) of the homes and businesses are without power, and many are without water.  Clean-up are underway, but the overall conditions are bad - which are gradually and slowly improving.

Thankfully everyone was proactive with Gustov, and what transpired after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast 3 years ago didn’t take place this time.  Everything was in place, and the National Guard, along with local Police, and special Security forces were deployed early so that a good watch was kept on the cities, its homes and businesses.  I’m not quite sure how many people actually lost their lives in the US due to Gustov, but I know it was minute compared to the approximately 1800 lost of life from Katrina.  I understand President Bush visited the state and assessed the damage, which was a far cry from what he did after Katrina struck in 2005.  Good for him!!

Gustovwindstrees.jpg (27094 bytes)  Our hope and prayers go out to the many in the other countries that was struck by Gustov, I know in Jamaica there were lots of flooding, and destruction to bridges and roads, with several lost of lives.  May the families suffering obtain help and comfort immediately.

HurricanesHU&J-1.gif (78983 bytes)  On the heels of Hurricane Gustov, several other severe storms are heading towards the United States.  The first is Hanna which drenched the Turks & Caicos and Puerto Rico, slammed into Haiti killing 61, passed close by Bahamas and is expected to reach the US (North and South Carolina) by Friday night 9/5/08.  Ike which is predicted to be very severe -  a Category 4 storm (winds approximately 145 mph) moving approximately 35 mph, may hit Cuba or North of The Bahamas before “tracking up” to the United States (keep in mind due to the undetermined movements of storms, it’s difficult to predict the actual places they might affect).  As for Josephine she is brewing up in the Atlantic and gained some more strength on 9/4/08 after weakening the day before. 

Please on-line family with these storms approaching “back-to-back”, I beg you to be prepared for each of them.  You must know how dangerous they can be, so “buckle down” and be extremely safe.

  Over this past week, I tuned into the Republic National Convention (RNC), so that I could learn more about the Republicans.  I believe in listening to everyone, in order for me to obtain as much knowledge as I can, and so that I can learn everything on every topic and situation.  I felt with the Republicans I needed to learn about their beliefs, their ideas, their ideals and most importantly their goals.  I honestly spent a lot of time focusing more on their views and goals, and really saw where they were coming from.  To me it was an “eye-opener” and a bit baffling, because we (the Republicans and I) were not on the same page. 

In fact, I truly couldn’t see the Republicans being on the same page with many of the American people.  It was all about “Country First”, which is not a bad thing nor a big problem with me.  However, I had to ask myself - what about the people in “the Country”?  Shouldn’t it be about them FIRST?  Don’t get me wrong, I honestly do love and appreciate America, but the souls in this country is what I feel should be important!  What about the many who are suffering because of the declining economy, the energy crisis, the lost of their homes because of this crazy housing crisis, the jobs lost due to them being shipped overseas, the many suffering because of no health care, and I can go on and on.  Don’t you think the people in this Country should be the FIRST THING on the Republican’s mind?

WAR…WAR…WAR and military is all I heard during the Convention, along with talks and insinuations about possible threats, which seriously made me scared.  They actually succeeded with making me scared.  Freedom too, was another factor that was stressed at the Convention, which I simply don’t get.  Being from the Islands and coming here to America I’ve always known America and its citizens to be free (one special aspect of wanting so badly to come to America).  However, my current status and life here in America is what’s important to me and to many.  Numerous amounts of folks in this Country are suffering badly, and I heard nothing from the Republicans addressing these issues...my issues.  Just plain and simple War Mongers who refuses to address the issues the people so need to hear.  We absolutely need to hear a plan that addresses changes and resolutions for the betterment of many lives, a plan about our troops returning home.  Most importantly, it was weird that I did not see or hear anyone I could relate to, or who reflected me at this Convention on their stage and in the audience.  That to me, was disturbing.

Certain things that were spoken in speeches during the convention I picked up on and which stood out in my mind.  (1) The First Lady Laura Bush spoke some striking words as she introduced her husband President George Bush on Tuesday night (9/2/08).  She stated: “…And here's another inspiring statistic. When my husband took office, fewer than 50,000 Africans suffering from AIDS were receiving the medicine they needed to survive.  Thanks to the president's emergency plan for AIDS relief, that number is now nearly two million. You might call that change you can really believe in.  George is using American's influence to lift up lives around the world. Millions of children are protected from malaria by mosquito nets the American people provide.  In Afghanistan and Iraq, 50 million people are now living in freedom.  And let's not forget President Bush has kept the American people safe...”   On-Line Family as much as I appreciate and is thankful for what President Bush has done for so many people in other countries, I cannot help but ask what has he and his Administration done for those in this country, including the many victims suffering from Aids right here on American soil.  Why does it seem that he is more occupied with helping everyone else in other countries and is involved with every other country’s business other than America’s? 

RNC2008Policeteargas.jpg (30268 bytes)  How about that uproar which took place outside the Xcel Energy center in MN, that lead to numerous arrests (hundreds and hundreds), along with pepper spray and tear gas being released by the authorities on the protestors, as well as rubber bullets being shot at those who were peacefully protesting (approximately 10,000 on Monday during the Anti-War March and on Tuesday Welfare Rights demanding human rights for low-income Americans.)  Was all that necessary?  It was an image of a war zone, not in this country.  However, sadly it was in this country, and the unnecessary tear gas bombs and rubber bullets were released on the American people who were exercising their god given rights.  When I watched ordinary folks being arrested and treated like criminals, I was appalled!!  Even many from the Media were arrested (Click here to See Video of Amy Goodman – Radio Host of Democracy Now as she is being arrested.Click Here to read more about the Protests!

Again, I asked why was this taking place at a Convention, and why on American people?  Why was that excessive force necessary?  The protestors did not seem to be of any harm to anyone at the Convention, they were protesting for their cause and belief.  Actually, it was reported that they were in a particular area away from the Convention.  Anyway, it was truly shocking to me, and I must admit I reflected on this situation and felt that the American people are not respected at all.

You must ask yourself, do we really want this?  Do we want an extension of this type of craziness to continue by the leadership of this country?  I truly hope not!!!

This Sarah Palin situation is completely out of control.  When I first heard about her being Senator John McCain’s pick for Vice President, I honestly thought it was a great move strategically on McCain’s path.  You see he had certainly believed the hype, and was trying to capture the 18 million Hillary Clinton voters (the cracks in the ceiling as Senator Clinton called it.).  However, I believe Clinton’s supporters really takes to heart the issues she dealt with during her run of becoming the Democratic Presidential Nominee. 

As the week passed so many issues arose with Mrs. Palin herself, her experience, her governorship, and her family, which was a bit shocking and was on the lips of everyone in America.  After learning some things through the media and Internet, I along with many others in America began to seriously question the Republicans values on morality, Christianity, and most importantly their ideals.  I wondered…did John McCain really think over his VP pick?  I agreed with Senator Obama’s statements regarding any attacks on Sarah Palin: “I have said before, and I will repeat again: People's families are off-limit.  And people's children are especially off-limits. This shouldn't be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin's performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president. So I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories. You know, my mother had me when she was 18, and how a family deals with issues and teenage children, that shouldn’t be a topic of our politics."

On Wednesday night- 9/3/08 however, as Mrs. Palin took the stage people were able to get a good glimpse of her.  To me she delivered her prepared speech very well!   She didn’t address any policies or any social issues, nothing at all about bringing our beloved troops home from Iraq, nor did she answer any questions I had.  Instead she was excellent with lashing out against Senator Obama and his camp.  A “tough cookie” she seemed to be when belittling and ridiculing her opponents, which was un-motivating for me, and a major “turn-off”.  Absolutely nothing I needed to know was shared, nor were any of the questions that were very important to me answered.  I still don’t know who she is, don't know much about her experience, and I am still "up in the air" and left trying to figure out what makes her a good nominee for the 2nd top job in the land.

As for Senator John McCain' s Presidential nomination acceptance speech, it was the “same ole thing" continuously.  Clearly, one must be a veteran, served in a war, become a prisoner of war, and get some scars to be President.  Lots of "biting" on slogans such as Change and "it's about you and not me".  Certainly Senator McCain said a lot of stuff, actually lots about himself, but WAR...WAR...WAR and FIGHT...FIGHT...FIGHT was all I heard throughout his speech and throughout the entire convention.  For me, I need to hear about health care, more details on the economy, solutions to the energy crisis, solutions to the housing crisis, etc. there was absolutely no appeal from him to me (the average citizen or resident of this county.)  It seemed he was only talking to the folks from his party, and it was really nothing new just more on war and fighting.

As I close, I must say surly we all love this country just as much as Senator McCain and the Republicans, but we need so many things in this country to change for all of us to prosper, and for me he really doesn't show me change nor does he reflect Change.  I am interested to know how you felt about the convention, their speeches, their attacks and your thoughts on all the issues addressed or may I say not addressed.  Please feel free to share them with me.

  Ronald P. Bell, a lovely man and the uncle of My husband Todd - passed on recently.  We will miss Ronnie tremendously, because of his lovingness and kindness.  We fondly recall the numerous amounts of time we spent with Ronnie and his companion Penny soon after moving back to Maryland (our home) from Florida.  The long talks while sitting in his back yard around a bon fire, while watching the stars and munching down on the exquisite foods he would prepare.  Boy, it seemed everything he prepared was excellent, and for me it was the way he prepared his vegetables - they were the best!  We will always recall his jokes, his stories, his special view on life and this world, and the special stimulating outings he would take many of the family members on.  A very intriguing man Ronnie was, and he could never be replaced.   We know Ronnie is at peace and is certainly out of pain.  We believe since Ronnie's dad (Grand-dad William Bell, Jr. ) passed on a little over a month ago, they both are together in that special place we call "Heaven", and they continue to walk, talk, fish and laugh together.  To Ronnie's sons, please know we share your grief, and may the fond memories of him forever live on in your hearts and minds.
