I appreciate you more than you as these guys are looking to me for
their next meal and I will do whatever I can do to keep them in gas and
food. This has been a TRUE grass rootd campaign right down to the CAT5
cable. We have all used our own stock of goods and we have gotten no
help from anywhere short of a few donations that totaled about $2000.00

  If you send your donation to my paypal account we will have use of
those funds now. Then I can make a call and tell the boys not to use
my/their credit card to buy the metal (angle iron...etc) with personal
money - - - -- - come get my PayPal card.

 I really have a lot to say on this very subject, but I have too many
other things going on - - - like path calcs and getting the right gear
for the job and about 24 men to pat on the back and a personal hug for
each of them everyday as I see them. Make no mistake about it - - - - -
- these men are the unsung heroes!!

Funding? FUNDING?
    3 men from this list is all that have donated  and short of that
there has been no funding!! Macs Farm fed and watered every night thus
far except last night as we are in Ponchatula, Louisiana and 3 nights
brothers and sisters came over and cooked to give Sharon a break as she
has washed clothes, cooked, mopped the floors everyday, answered the
phones, ran Maximum Access, ran Dixie Lift truck services and then made
sure she had what she needed for the next day.

Damn, I guess we will all be under a shelter next looking for a meal.

I was wondering if there are no funding available to help these fine
and myself? How about some kind of fund raising?

We are buying angle iron & cinder blocks this morning and all that it

takes to build a heavy non penetrating roof mount to place atop of a University Library. This is being built by my team and you wouldnt believe the talents and abilities here. We have a mobile lab and a mobile shop that is amazing. Truthfully - - - - - there has been a divine hand guiding this whole thing and it is more than evident in my eyes.

My apologies if I upset anybody, but this is what I commented on the above Blog, I am tired of all the bullshit. I am angry that I cannot be there to help these guys with what they are doing, so Mac, Johnny and Company remember there is another side to this - being frustrated because you cannot lift a hand to help.
"Gentlemen and Ladies,
May I draw your attention to a group of WISP (Wireless Internet Service Providers) who before an "disaster" was declared was already delivering "communications" to shelters. When "only 40 people" had died from Katrina, they were on the ground and knew the tally would be

in the thousands, they knew New Orleans would not be spared. These are

the men and women who were on the ground running before FEMA and the President was properly briefed. They were the ones, with donations from other WISP's and related services who started the first
communications. Don't be fooled by the "BIG GUYS" PR Dept. because they were a full week or more behind these WISPS, but we don't have a PR dept. who only sees this as a marketing opportunity. Please visit the site of these wisps - <a href="http://www.crisis.wispa.org";>http://www.crisis.wispa.org</a> and

our parent org. <a

Please note I find it very distressing to see these unsung heroes not been mentioned. These people have been working eighteen hour days, using their own resources to deliver these communication services."

So guys just keep your heads high and know that where ever I see you not being recognized, I will pipe up in my normal abrasive rude self and tell the true story. For those of you like me who cannot help, I believe this is the way we can do it. Call your local radio/tv station

and newspaper and make them tell Mac, Johnny and Company's true story.

Ok I feel better now :-[
