CRITICAL ISSUE:::THERE IS NO SHELTER THIS TIME- NOT EVEN A DAMN DOME- WHERE ARE THE ELDERLY AND POOR SUPPOSED TO GO- HEAVEN?

***{{ CRITICAL:::THINK on this THIS....Last time people had designated shelters to go to;....this time they are supposed to just GET OUT, Get on a Bus...BUT there are no shelters or MASS shelters planned for 1000's of people. Think about all the people you know- do they have money to STAY somewhere, like a hotel ? Do they have a Way Out ? Under the Old FEMA: there was a Dsaster Preparedness Plan for Organizing Mass Shelter to go with the Mass Evac Orders. ( I know I trained with the Red Cross. Most Working Class Families and Elderly have NO Where to go, and no money to find new shelter....And yes, Again I say that Chertoff is a Criminal).}}****

SNIPPET of article Explaining this Horrendous Error::::
"NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Police with bullhorns plan to go street to street this weekend with a tough message about getting out ahead of Hurricane Gustav: This time there will be no shelter of last resort. The doors to the Superdome will be locked. Those who stay will be on their own.

New forecasts Friday made it increasingly clear that New Orleans will get some kind of hit - direct or indirect - by early next week. That raised the likelihood people would have to flee, and the city suggested a full-scale evacuation call could come as soon as Sunday.

Those among New Orleans' estimated 310,000 to 340,000 residents who ignore orders to leave accept "all responsibility for themselves and their loved ones," the city's emergency preparedness director, Jerry Sneed, has warned.

As Katrina approached in 2005, as many as 30,000 people who either could not or would not evacuate jammed the Louisiana Superdome and the riverfront convention center. They spent days waiting for rescue in squalid conditions. Some died."
