Gov. Bobby Jindal Orders National Guard to Build Barrier Wall Off Louisiana Shore

More evidence that the Federal government is unresponsive to the needs of the people and the states. It is about time the States take charge of their own problems as the Constitution envisioned. On immigration, Arizona lit the fire. On the spill, Jindal is taking the lead.

As for Obama, it appears by the article, that he is focusing on punishment of BP and getting money to the voters. Maybe he should concentrate on the prevention and cleanup before using the crisis to push another liberal energy bill.

Eight weeks into the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of the Mexico, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has told the National Guard that there's no time left to wait for BP, so they're taking matters into their own hands.
President Barack Obama visits the Gulf for fourth time since spill.

In Fort Jackson, La., Jindal has ordered the Guard to start building barrier walls right in the middle of the ocean. The barriers, built nine miles off shore, are intended to keep the oil from reaching the coast by filling the gaps between barrier islands.

Today, huge Blackhawk and Chinook helicopters lined up in the air, dropping sandbags one by one into the sea.

"They are lifting up about 7,000 pounds of sandbags," said 1st Lt. James Tyson Gabler.
