  1. Well, that's what happens when your Emperor insists on living up to his sobriquet. (I actually forgot to include Count of Malisko...) Great job!
  2. I found my own arms as authorized by HMIM and produced by the King of Sangun, which includes the correct crown: http://z9.invisionfree.com/stormark/index.php?showtopic=630
  3. Ok, let's see if I can give you a better idea of what I'd like on mine... HIMH Crown Prince Thorfinn Imperial Prince of Helgoland Prince of Drangetoft Earl of Orkney Earl of More Stormarksgothi - the Earldoms may be combined if it looks better, "Earl of Orkney and More" I'd like to have a Thor's hammer incorporated...(religious symbol). Here's an example: Perhaps incorporate the Imperial Arms with additions as granted me by HMIM: http://z9.invisionfree.com/stormark/index.php?showtopic=616 You're doing a great job on these.
  4. I would also like to welcome you to Stormark, on behalf of the Wyrd of Midgard Hof, where we honor the Aesir and the Vanir, the gods of the ancient Norse. I welcome new activity in the spiritual life of Stormark and I expect that your temple will be a welcome addition.
  5. ? Uh, that sounds like it has something to do with the rapper (formerly known as) MC Hammer...

    Uh, I'm not sure what you're trying to say... I'm not saying that setting up clans should be a first-priority, or that important things should be shoved aside. I'm not even saying we SHOULD set up clans...but it's worth discussing further.

    The clan idea was brought up and discussed...but nothing's been done with it... That shouldn't necessarily stop you from setting up a Crandish clan or clan system, but until there's a Stormark-wide clan system, you'd be on your own... Maybe it's time to revisit the idea and consider it in greater Stormark.

  9. USS Bataan waited for days for orders Criticism of the federal government's response is also coming from some unlikely sources including the Pentagon. Lt. Commander Sean Kelly, a Pentagon spokesman for the Northern Command, revealed on the BBC that NorthCom was prepared to send in search and rescue helicopters from the USS Bataan almost immediately after the hurricane hit. He said, "We had things ready. The only caveat is: we had to wait until the president authorizes us to do so." That authorization didn't happen for days even though the ship was docked just outside New Orleans. On b
  10. As the National Guard delivered food to the New Orleans convention center yesterday, American Red Cross officials said that federal emergency management authorities would not allow them to do the same. Other relief agencies say the area is so damaged and dangerous that they doubted they could conduct mass feeding there now. "The Homeland Security Department has requested and continues to request that the American Red Cross not come back into New Orleans," said Renita Hosler, spokeswoman for the Red Cross. http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05246/565143.stm
  11. BUSH LEAVES NOLA - EVACUATIONS STOP - NO REASON GIVEN While Bush was in NOLA on his photo-op, Blackhawks were filling the sky over his head. Now that he has left town for a nice comfortable room and a good dinner, they have stopped evacuating people from the Superdome without explaining why and they are saying the people may have to stay there until Sunday. The response continues to be absolutely inadquate. If this report is correct, the lack of response by the Bush Administration is utterly unconscionable.
  12. And I don't mean to make light of Senator Lott's loss... But for the President to talk about 'us' rebuilding the home of a multi-millionaire while thousands of low-and middle-class Americans are dying in the streets of New Orleans...is beyond callous, it's criminal in its disregard for the reality that the people he was elected to serve are facing.
  13. I shouldn't be surprised: CNN shows split screen of Bush motorcade and huge bus and supplies convoy...it's a set up to make him look like he's bringing in the cavalry! So, people have been DYING in New Orleans for a Bush photo-op!
  14. President Bush is touring the ravaged Gulf states today. Bush on CNN: "We are going to help rebuild Trent Lotts house." Said he is looking forward to sitting on his new patio. Trent Lott is a Republican Senator from Mississippi who lost his mansion in the hurricane. Apparently, rebuilding a rich Republican's mansion is more important than the lives of those dying of dehydration in New Orleans.
  15. The hands of god? No offense, but that's not good enough. (sentence deleted due to offensive content) What they NEED is for the GOVERNMENT to get off their ASSES and DO SOMETHING. Other than hinder rescue efforts so they can profit via the Blackwater/Halliburton cleanup. (deleted due to offensive content) (Self-edited due to offensive content)
  16. More anecdotes from people in New Orleans:
  17. agreed. The incompetence and uncaring lack of action by the Bush Administration is beyond words. I had a chance to discuss it with a colleague at work...and I just couldn't say anything. It's inexcusable, and anyone who continues to support the Bush administration, in my opinion, should be on trial for genocide, treason and crimes against humanity. The Iraq war has been bad...but this is much more clear, even to the mainstream media. Bush should be impeached. He has failed utterly. His lack of response to the hurricane should be considered a 'high crime'.
  18. And, anecdotally, from a message board:
  19. And don't believe the "No one could have predicted..." BS they're trying to push... In 2004: HURRICANE PAM EXERCISE CONCLUDES BATON ROUGE, LA – Hurricane Pam brought sustained winds of 120 mph, up to 20 inches of rain in parts of southeast Louisiana and storm surge that topped levees in the New Orleans area. More than one million residents evacuated and Hurricane Pam destroyed 500,000-600,000 buildings. Emergency officials from 50 parish, state, federal and volunteer organizations faced this scenario during a five-day exercise held this week at the State Emergency Operations Center
