Barely -- at a dynamic. Three platoon negates that avenue WWL. 2601786688908. The company. Told reminding them and he hates him. All right lots of stuff that's been an apartment -- more stuff in there to talk about the police. Talking about flood maps. Risk map six the number six RE SK MAP the number six dot com risk maps six. And it doesn't go to forced -- southeast Louisiana it's Texas. Louisiana. Arkansas home. It is Arkansas New Mexico Oklahoma Texas and Louisiana. Those like the south central central part of itself. That's risk -- six. And we are the most southeast portion of it and not not every Paris -- -- closer redundant looks like about. 15%. Tony percent. But the state has maps that you can click on to. -- you should trying to kind of some fun again this afternoon. Is. Where is that. Well there was an article in -- articles on an element and the pistons -- there it is. The flood insurance chief is visiting Louisiana man who oversees the National Flood Insurance Program visiting Louisiana. A tour of the State's flood protection infrastructure. As members of the congressional delegation. Fight the possibility of skyrocketing insurance rates as somebody sent a text here because of a comment that was made at the analysts -- That is insane to tell people to drop their insurance one on the callers. The one -- a -- drop that does a lot of people who did. Lot of people you you can't drop your flood insurance. You can't drop flood insurance if you have. If you have a a mortgage and if you. But if you if you're done paying your mortgage who can -- -- gonna pay twenty grand a year that's ridiculous. It is insane to tell people to drop their insurance ask people who didn't have any for Katrina the government cannot keep paying to repair all the uninsured -- But they can't and one of the things I talked about. He has not -- for instance. -- -- in this discussion about oh is your house 51%. Damaged or forty that's -- that's an arbitrary decision. You can have five people come up there and have of a fifteen degree spread about what's damaged and what's not. That's silly. You know. Pay if you pay for your flood insurance gimme -- and my -- house was voted. There was watering of the two weeks gimme on my -- if I need more money than that. Then gimme a disaster loan. That people applied for SBA loans 203040. Grant get if I needed another hundred grand to fix my house because of the disaster. -- gimme the money that way and I'll pay that back. At a low interest rate but the fact is I would not take that mortgage out of but did not need to fix my home from a disaster and that money is not available. To somebody to fix up their house unless they are a victim of a disaster. You know. So what's that -- try to figure out if they got a grant coming and then -- we gave you too much money in the grant that's nonsense. That's. You know it's it's the arbitrary decision of whoever happens will be looking at the piece of paper at the time. Put the onus on me. I -- loan me money at a very low interest rate because my house was destroyed. And the federal government will get their money back. Instead it just given money to everybody and then some of took that -- -- women they skipped out on their properties forget it. Don't do that gimme an incredibly like one or 2% interest long one and a half percent a disaster loan. And I'll -- my house back and I'll use my house itself as equity. And if I sell my house I gotta pay you Waugh went up everybody else don't give people money in if they didn't have flood insurance just one. You get the one and a half percent loan and you got to pay it back. And if you can't afford to get one you gotta sell your property. Anyway it's I agree you can't not have insurance and if you decide to go that route Willman you've got to take the risk. But I don't think they should just give people money and a whole that whole road home and it was a nightmare to begin with maybe some people benefited from a but I sure didn't. 267866. -- NAND 08787870. Is where you send a text message. All right third thing going upload button talk about flood maps and if somebody from buy you go to about that none of which over and say about that -- -- Second thing we talked about was the cops and there are -- -- be losing an officer every other day. With concerns or should they just drop residency altogether. I know I know people -- well yeah you don't have any you don't have any equity in the city if you don't live here. If you if you lose and a copy every other day. If you already don't have enough policeman on the force that your budgeted to have and you got a consent decree to fix it up but you don't have enough consequence. That's just that's the mood argument. Tattoos I got it I've had enough conversations gone not a big fan of a but I don't think that should keep you off the force. No response times is the biggest problem I have taken taken forever to get here paid details you -- -- would pay details with a paid -- more money so that have to work that way. They can't make ends meet what in a white and that's why a lot of them don't live in the said because we can't afford to causes that -- pay him enough. But the bottom line is that got this expenses consent decree in the -- -- at the fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to vacate it and it's not gonna happen. -- signed up for a though PP and in a beaten that cost -- so what are you ready to do out there folks here edited do with less police. Are you got to come up with -- more money and in the coming up would more money are you gonna have a much better -- more transparent on the money in the city go man. You know where's that where's that transparency to go okay we took in this much money and here's all the checks we -- You know make the checkbook available to all the people who in the in the parish. Who pay the taxes here everybody wants piece of property and as an embryo and and tax. Certainly those have not others people who pay rent here everybody who lives in the city of Rowling's. New laws should be able look at the checkbook. 2678668890. Point seven ample for last thing. And to apply here. There's an article that I saw an hour. It was a CNN article. Talking about California -- I don't need to focus on California but there's basically a lot of people get relief from Britain from jail because of under. There's a federal law -- there's a federal order. Because of overcrowding in the -- that they have to let people go and and and they're letting people go their letting people out. A jail unfortunately some of the people that they're letting out of jail. Or her uncle derby. And it -- and and frankly they're violating their parole thing going back to jail for one night and then gotten cut loose again. Because frankly they they are under a federal order to reduce the -- To reduce in number of people they have in jail because of overcrowding because and that they're not able to to take care of properly -- the question I have is who should be let out. I think. I know I mean that's that's the broad statement and it's a lot more nit picking the Mets were quite frankly if you didn't do. Violence. You know if you're not armed robber you rob somebody -- you beat somebody rapes somebody or kill somebody if you didn't physically do violence. Then that should be first on the list to be let out and my wife was brutal. You know actually I've been mugged and ever but I never actually been terrible novel that's not true people stole bicycles from my carport. And it does make you feel invaded. But you know should burglars be let out before sex offenders yeah. If if if if they're if they're if the jails are under federal decree that they have to reduce populations. Everybody. Ever. Everybody who's committed a violent crime should be absolute last once they cut loose. That's what I think you know and and I know the pot smokers -- gonna call you know yet how many people is an -- joke of the smoke pot I don't know. You know I mean unless they unless they were a dealer who beat somebody and -- you know like three or 45 kilos and attract an apartment for somebody sitting there -- they had a bag and it was -- around the potato chips. Those are not the people who should be behind bars violent people should -- That's my feeling or until you make more bars. When which -- get up -- checkbook. So those things are in a -- to 67866. Innings and steroids have it -- remind our calls across the board. But all the different things were talking about all your calls comments -- the whole shebang right after find out about -- ride home here makes you get home safe and traffic report. And we'll talk to get a cup of coffee. Kyra back -- the question on the big examining got a bunch of calls that much text with him right to Anderson by you ghosting in knowing him. I'm gonna and it -- you wish. Now. That's -- you guys come into account perfectly. Right. I know it and it be your sheriff and I fraternity Brothers and are -- so what's up. Okay -- I don't want to say that but I understanding the one that bigotry evenings. Senate senators. We're taking. FEMA representatives. Around was to show them areas that we have not accredited levees. And the date that this should've been the first stop they should have hit by gosh we are living nightmare FEMA already has come here. They have released. Rates prematurely. They have already done devastation to our area. They had not been here today why -- -- not. They should have been here today and but simply beautiful there is unacceptable. -- they need to get on the feet walked in and faced. The family. The community that they're gonna devastate now perhaps tomorrow -- could be done for today. So hopefully tell the whole. Either of them are senator Landrieu would make it -- poorly again that's FEMA representatives. Here. We we have a prime example of -- fact we have a man made happy that they're not taking into account we have not -- and a hundred year history but whoever wants to tell me and independents.
