It’s that time again. Time for another round of awards. (We may even beat out the Emmy’s when it comes to ratings. Not that that’s a high bar to begin with. But. Well. Anyway…)
Our thanks to an alert reader in Ocean Shores for nominating the following:
Today’s Soaring Eagle Award goes to the Cajun Navy, “a bunch of good old boys from Louisiana who loaded up their boats, trailered them to Texas and rescued many people without regard to race or ethnicity.”
An informal network of good Samaritans, this volunteer civilian group with small watercraft rescues those hard hit by hurricanes and such. They do so without a government program or funding because it’s the Right. Thing. To. Do. And because they can.
Formed 12 years ago after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, the Cajun Navy was in Texas post-Hurricane Harvey. They were off to Florida, too, after Irma. If you want to know more about the Cajun Navy, check out their Facebook page.
Today’s Braying Jackass Award goes to Black Lives Matter, “who was unable or unwilling to do anything to help the black people they claim to represent in either Texas or Florida. Trump gave $1M of his own money and actually personally paid for water and food he handed out in Florida. Who is doing more to help African-Americans?”
Don’t make me explain this.
