    How About a Revolution to Eradicate Ignorance Pollution? Hmmm…

    LBRC- We Forwarded a Copy of This Email to NOLA Council- Forgive us our Frankness,  Please? Want some Data? 

    This is from U.S. News and World Report 2019, NOLA.com, May 15, 2019- How’s ‘Dat for “Current”? Can’t  “Your” Council tenure! *btw- True Story!!! Albert Einstein was asked to serve as Prime Minister of Israel (Google It)! He grumbled and walked away. Later, when asked why? Though gracious, somebody heard mention of problems regarding working alongside “Science” imbeciles/Paraphrased! Is ‘Dis ‘Thang on?  

    *”Louisiana is The Worst State of 50 in 2019…”! Got ‘Dat? U.S. News is not the only source saying so! Why?

    1. Self explanatory? Start with Education-

    a. Simply said, pure out and out ignorance (Not a Pot to put Literacy in or a School Window to throw it out of (Not all, but aporox. 99.9%! NOLA especially! Lee Zurik, Fox 8- Any Questions?) and in the field of “Science”- No Clue!! Safe to say, NOLA Council has demonstrated ignorance  fabulously, as in “Ghetto Urban City Fabulously” maybe? Sorry…? Disclaimer: Credit goes to Literate NOE Citizens who protested at Council Hearings! 

    b. New Orleans City Council voted in favor of a Gas Oven in NOE, majority African- American (Environmental Racism is rampant in Louisiana and at the DEQ! U.S. Civil Rights Commission Studied it!). No Clue, right? A Negro tells us he asked a Racist if they were Racist? This is who he asked if the “Oven” was safe in NOE, majority Negro? When the rest of the world comprehends Global Warming and effects of “Rapid Evaporation”?  Obviously, no “Current” Council Member comprehends what it means to “Boil Water” or concepts of simple “Evaporation” or impacts of heat/Calories to processes. Flip Wilson said, “The Devil made me do it”! In the case of council members, add out of town highly paid “Consultants? Disgraceful says a Chorus of 3rd Graders! And Lemmings wonder why their streets flooded on Mother’s Day 2019? 

    c. Why should any be role models for 3rd Graders, who you puzzle with your contemporary ignorance. To “Not Know”! Adding insult to injury- we sent “All” Council (Current) a “Click On” Video Link produced by a “Certified” Climatologist whose focus was “What makes Hurricanes Intensify in Puerto Rico” and “What is Rapid Evaporation”? *Please don’t lie and say you didn’t get the Link! 

    2. According to U.S. News, “Literate” cities embrace “Renewable Energy” Technologies! What does NOLA Council Embrace? Ans. Hobnobbing in the “ENTERGY Superdome Suite during Special Events, with moneyed (Lobbyist) interest, dinning and drinking whatever! Bet its a mixture of the cheap and tasteful! NOLA Lemmings are clueless! How do we know? Been there, done ‘Dat aka it!!! Duh?

    *Here’s the U.S. News Link- Get it Today!

    https://www.nola.com/news/2019/05/louisiana-finishes-last-in-us-news-world-report-best-states-ranking.html

    ***”The “best state” honor went to Washington, which earned kudos for its booming economy, investment in renewable energy and strong public education. New Hampshire (2nd) and Minnesota (3rd) rounded out the top three.”***/end quote/

    3. We feverishly gathered relevant info and simply asked Council People to review it. Also, we referred them to “University” Authorities. Such “Lazy” intellects!!! Least does “Scripture” say about “Pearls Before Swine”?  With respect to Louisiana and NOLA’s 2019 Educational Ranking? Where do “You” live and among? Got ‘Dat Right!!! Peace..
